Large Italian 20th Century Female Portrait Painting by Renato Borsato, 1960


Renato Borsato, 1960 seated girl portrait, a signed and dated oil on canvas Italian mid-20th century painting depicting a deeply dark, undefined Industrial suburb background, a quiet unreal landscape, with a single tree on the left and a calm seated girl sketched in the foreground, thick paint brushstrokes underlines the fanciful painting of the Venetian artist who exhibited in 1954 in the International Art Biennale of Venice. The entire composition displays a remarkable fluency of touch. The Venetian artist Borsato has deliberately chosen to show only the barest of background details, so that our attention is not distracted by the female seated figure expressing an elusive dignity and composure. Signed and dated lower right by the Italian artist, Renato Borsato (Venice 1927-2013). Very good condition, within a silvered wooden frame, it comes from a private residence in Milan.
