ANTONIO DE VITY Vtg 60s Cityscape Mid Century Oil Painting Paris Scene Eames Era

Vintage Mid Century Impressionist DeVity painting of a Paris street scene. Antonio DeVity (1901 - 1993). Italian. International award winning artist had one of his paintings featured on the Antiques Roadshow in 2003. Signed lower right corner. Oil on canvas - nice colors and evident brush work. The vibrant color palette of turquoise, oranges black & gold helps date it to the 1060's. Canvas measures 8"x 10" & with the original frame measures 16 1/2" H x 14 3/4" W x 2" D. Authentic DeVity stamp on the reverse with a paper biography attached.

Probably retailed in a finer art gallery or better department store Mid Century. Original ornate frame with a gilt edge, linen matte and inner gold painted wood inside the matte. DE VITY plaque at bottom. The orange TMC-Chicago label on the reverse - I think might refer to the frame maker - not sure - there is a style number, picture number & other inventory numbers. There are also pencil notations on the orange label which appear to notate the color of a living room - Gardenia White, the name/maker of a rug & another notation referring to 1 1/2 gallons of a painted green room. Not sure about all of that.
