Pair of Italian 19th Century Louis XVI St. Gouaches in Their Original Frames

About

A striking and most decorative pair of Italian 19th century Louis XVI St. gouaches in their original giltwood frames. Each gouache is framed within elegant giltwood borders with lovely beaded designs and richly carved floral and foliate movements at each corner. The gouaches depict the charming port of Naples where boats and personages dressed in period attire gather and fish while boats pass by. In the background Mount Vesuvius can be seen erupting amidst the beautiful Italian countryside. Mount Vesuvius is a volcano located on the Gulf of Naples in Campania, Italy. It is best known for its eruption in AD 79 that led to the burying and destruction of the Roman cities of Pompeii, Herculaneum, Oplontis and Stabiae, as well as several other settlements. Vesuvius has erupted many times since and is the only volcano on the European mainland to have erupted within the last hundred years. Today, it is regarded as one of the most dangerous volcanoes, because of the 3,000,000 people living nearby, making it the most densely populated volcanic region in the world.
