Object Description

This beautiful painting was created in Italy in the 19th Century. It depicts a group of Middle Eastern figures—possibly Bedouins—in a courtyard, accompanied by camels. The camels carry bags filled with belongings and goods. The courtyard is lined with Islamic buildings, including a mosque, which is seen at the end of a street on the left.

The painting has been created on a landscape format, using oil paint on canvas. The artist has employed short, visible brushstrokes to render the scene. These are sketchy and expressive, and effectively convey the movement and activity in the courtyard. The painting manages to be both naturalistic and painterly in its style.

The canvas is signed ‘O. F. Perrota’ in the lower right corner. It is displayed in a giltwood frame, which is fitted with a plaque, signed ‘O. F. Perrota’.
