Italian Oil On Canvas Painting Framed Artist Unknown 1850-1890

This is a beautiful Italian oil painting of a young couple next to a wall with a fountain, sitting on a bench.  The girl is looking away shyly, and the young man is clasping her hand. This oil on canvas, 28.5″ x 19.25″ is not signed, nor dated, possibly Italian in origin, from 1850-1890. It has a fine, intact elaborate 19th century frame (40″ x 31.5″).  The painting itself is in good condition, relined prior to 1970, and would benefit from much minor in-painting and retouching.

The subject painting is very good, typical example of British and European Romantic genre painting, or intimate scenes from everyday life of ordinary people in work or recreations, depicted in a generally realistic manner, of the latter half of the 19th century.  The subject of young lovers modestly courting was a popular one, and many less well-known artists made such paintings. It is practically impossible to attribute the subject painting to any particular artist.  Although unsigned, this painting, and its (probably original) elaborate, large antique frame are of very good quality. Appraised market value: $5,000.
