Today we are happy to present for sale a wonderful vintage Ezelino Briante oil on canvas mountain landscape painting!
Ezelino Briante was born in 1901 in Naples Italy. Art was in his blood and both of his parents were talented musicians. As a young man he enrolled at the Academy of Fine Arts in Naples. His curious and wondering nature soon caused him to be bored with academic life and he abandoned his studies. Relying on his inner-intuition and God-given talent, Briante traveled extensively to Italy and abroad, creating beautiful paintings as he went along. His most famous paintings are from his Capri period when he lived in beautiful Capri, the famous island located in the Tyrrhenian Sea off the Sorrento Peninsula, on the south side of the Gulf of Naples in the Campania region of Italy. Briante died in Rome in 1971. His work is highly collectible and has been displayed fine art and antique galleries in Europe and the USA, with sales at Christie’s and the Dorotheum in Vienna.
This beautiful oil on canvas painting, signed by the artist on the lower right corner, depicts an imposing mountainous country side with beautiful clouds, and a towering tree growing out of the edge of a rocky mountainside, with a valley below. Two villagers climb up the side of the hill on their way to the summit. The piece features warm and subdued colors, and is finely painted in an Impressionist impasto style. The painting is framed in its’ original fanciful French Provincial parcel-gilt cream frame, and is ready to be hung and enjoyed.
The painting presents beautifully and is in very good vintage condition, with very minor display wear and patina commensurate with age. The painting’s surface is bright and clean and with no visible tears or repairs. The frame is in good vintage condition, with minor wear and patina commensurate with age, and a few small (and hard to notice) small losses and repairs. Add Italian Mid Century style and elegance to any interior with this beautiful painting…Fresh to the market from an old Providence estate!
