20th century Italian School oil painting on wood signed Carlos Rossi (1921-2010) in the lower right corner and located on the back in pencil as Varese in Valle Olona. The work has a little texture to the touch.
This artwork offers a post-Impressionist depiction of a river, marked by dense and brief brushstrokes. The texture and gradation of the shore enhance the scene's depth and perspective. Depth is accentuated by a harmonious color palette that remains consistent throughout the composition. Carlos Rossi is renowned for his manipulation of light, evident in the soft gradients and understated reflections. The artwork's allure is amplified by an aged gilded stucco and wooden frame, which subtly elevates the brilliance of the Italian landscape.
