|Description: We offer an exquisite original watercolor by Guido Parolari. It is 25” x 15”, signed “G. Parolari” at the lower right corner, and presented in its original frame that measures 33” x 23”. Item #FA00191.
The crisp architectural shadows and shimmering water set this Venetian genre painting far above others of its category. The unopened frame retains a label from the Daniels Fisher Store in Denver, Colorado; a sprawling, extravagant department store with a clock tower modeled after the Piazza San Marco in Venice. Perhaps this painting was originally purchased in their art department.
Unfortunately, not much is known about Parolari’s life. He was clearly a well-schooled scenic artist working in Venice in the late 1800’s.His paintings have sold with some frequency in major auction houses globally.
Description: Not examined out of frame, the original paper seal is intact on verso, the painting appears to be in very good untouched condition. The frame has a minor separation at the lower right corner and some wear to the ornate details.
