Item specifics

Seller notes: Crazing to central area of painting no loose paint
Original/ Repro:





Children/ Infants

Date of Creation:




Superbly composed oil on canvas depicting a childrens street band, at first I thought this might be Italian but once we deciphered the signature it appears to be by Greek artist Alicas. The central character is the boy standing on an up turned basket with his improvised conductors baton directing his band of would be musicians, even the dog sitting on the doorstep appears to be singing, a  joyful image wonderfully captured by this artist. Over the years the paint has crazed but there is no loose or missing paint and when hung it does not distract from this charming study. I was tempted to hold this back for our next art fair or for when we next put some paintings into one of the London sales, unusually for us we have put a  reserve on this lovely quality painting still significantly below what this work is worth, the reserve includes UK P&P, but not worldwide. We will send worldwide and if bidding from outside the UK it will be sent UNFRAMED please note.

Subject :  Childrens street band.

Medium: Oil on canvas.

Signed: Bottom left hand corner ALICAS.

Condition Light clean and crazing to center of painting, no loose paint or missing paint.

Framed : Deep wooden frame with gold edging and fade beige paint with grey and white slip, shabby chic look which really suits this picture.

Size: Framed 53cms x 44cms, unframed 40cms x 30cms
