Attributed to Anthony Thieme (American, 1888-1954)
Oil on canvas, 12 1/2 x 17 1/4 in. (31.8 x 43.7 cm), framed.
Condition: Surface grime.
Provenance: Purchased from Anthony Thieme at his studio on Dartmouth Street, Boston, c. 1925; by family descent to the present owner.
N.B. Thought to be an early work by Thieme, the scene may be Venice or some other location in Italy, based upon the design of the foreground fishing boat with its pointed ends and lugger rig, as well as the white schooner and the architecture beyond.
Canvas is trimmed, unmounted, and un-stretched. Canvas is laid against a corrugated cardboard backing that is held in place with nails into the frame. No inscriptions or notations to the reverse.
