Signed illegibly lower left, executed in oil on canvas; circa mid-to-late 19th century
Item # 807FAQ21P

This is an attractive mid-to-late 19th century oil painting on canvas of fishermen and women hanging out their nets to dry following a day of fishing.  The vessels are resting with their sails dropped in the port beside a small village.  Colorful linens hang from balconies as the town disapears into the background, the dirt streets bustling with villagers before emerald green tranquil waters.  It is an attractive little work of nostalgia and is signed lower left in neat block lettering that appears to read "M. Adrian”; the back of the frame is notated with initials and a date of 1874, though it is not entirely certain that the frame is original to the painting.  It is a beautifully little piece for brightening up a room.
