Description
G. Riva (Attrib. to) - Oil Painting
Oil on hardboard - Hand signed - 20th Century

A lovely oil painting on board of a country scene. Signed G Riva. The painting has the artist’s name on a tag on the mount which may indicate it was hung in a public place at some point. The detail in the painting would indicate it was painted by a skilled hand. Not sure if it was possible to be a work of Giovanni Riva 1880-1973? The sky is quite similar to that of another picture I have seen, but not sure. It was bought in an antiques shop in south west London. The back of the frame is damaged in one corner ( see pictures) but because it is a box frame , 5cm deep there is no damage to the painting itself. A collector would probably re-frame or have the frame touched up
And Replace the backing.
