A lovely lake landscape oil on canvas, signed by Monti.
I always try and do some research on pieces that I find and this one is an original painted by Cesare Monti and it had been in the family for more than 30 years.
After studying in Paris, Monti moved to Milan in 1911 and began to focus on landscapes, female figures and still life. His debut came with works of a Divisionist character at the annual show of the Milan Società per le Belle Arti ed Esposizione Permanente in 1912. He was associated with the Novecento Italiano movement in the 1920s and took in their first and second exhibitions (Milan, 1926 and 1929). His handling of space acquired greater solidity in this period. His participation in the Venice Biennale began by invitation in 1920 with the 12th Esposizione Internazionale d’Arte della Città di Venezia. Associated with the group known as the Cenacolo di Via Bagutta in the 1930s, he achieved fame in 1940, when a room was devoted exclusively to his work at the 22nd Esposizione Internazionale d’Arte della Città di Venezia. The tradition of the school of Lombard Naturalism is clearly reflected in the works produced after World War II.
Its so fascinating the work we do, particularly when you come across something like this. Oils like this can only be an investment and this one is in very good condition and the signature is very clear.
At the moment its found a little 'nook' in the guest bathroom by my studio.
