Original Hand-Signed Tempera (or gouache)Painting by famed Italian illustrator, Dante Manno. This is from the mid 20th Century and was clearly used as a painting for a movie poster. I have been unable to unearth the specific movie it was used for or the exact date.
Mannos work was prevalent from the 30s to the 60s. The only information I got from the antique store owner was that it was gifted by Manno to his housekeeper and later ended up in the antique store. This is a triumphantly painted work with clear bravado brushwork. It would be a centerpiece for a collection based in illustration or figurative realism. It comes exactly as I found it years ago in Rome no glazing or dust backing and in the original frame.The sticker and text still attached. Im unable to read the text. Please use the photographs as part of the description. Painting is bright and vibrant and in very clean condition with some general mild wear, as expected for a painting of this age.
Not examined outside of frame. Frame size approximately 15.5x26. Board size approximately 14.5 x 25.
