Framed oil on canvas by the Italian painter Achille Vianelli (1803-1894)
The subject is a quiet street, probably on the outskirts of Naples near to where Vianelli lived and worked for a large part of his life.
Here, life appears to progress at a pretty leisurely pace, with the handful of people to be seen quietly passing the time under a blue sky, and a few chickens scratching away on the ground in the shade of a wall.
An elderly couple can be seen enjoying their lunch at a table set beneath the walled arch at the end of the street.
The old buildings all around are full of character and it's easy to see why this scene caught the eye of the artist.
Vianelli was born in Porto Maurizio near Genoa and is regarded as having been a member of the School of Posillipo, artists who based themselves in the waterfront area of that name close to Naples.
His oils are rather more rare than his watercolours and are sought after, particularly in this larger size, whenever they appear at auction.
The visible canvas size is 54 by a little over 37 cm ad the fine old frame measures approximately 72 X 56 cm.
