Mother and Child In An Orchard

A very well executed oil on canvas of Mother & Child In An Orchard by Italian artist Giuseppe Solenghi (1879-1944) signed lower left. Probably painted after the first world war. A beautiful painting where the artist has caught the gentle dappled sunlight falling through the trees on to the mother while her son shelters in the shade. With a lake in the background, possibly Lake Como in northern Italy. Sitting in a handsome gilt and glazed frame, with a deep scarlet velvet mount which sits nicely with the colours in the painting. From 1892 to 1895 Solenghi was a pupil at the Brera Academy, studying painting under Cesare Tallone, sculpture and engraving under Ernesto Bazzaro, and perspective under Giuseppe Mentessi. For a five year period, 1895-1900, he dedicated himself to working on illuminated manuscripts. He began exhibiting his landscapes primarily after the First World War and it is said that Leonardo Bazzaro influenced his choice of landscapes and views. Rather than the sunlit pastoral views, he preferred to depict the humid panoramas of the canals of Milan and Venetian lagoons. He had a posthumous exhibition in the Galleria Boito of Milan, sponsored by the Fondazione Cariplo.

Hello, my name is Miles and I would like to welcome you to my store Tinker & Toad.

We are a family run business in the heart of the beautiful Sussex countryside. We deal in an eclectic mix of antique and modern furniture, architectural salvage, re-worked industrial lighting, decorative arts and a carefully selected choice of paintings and modern art.

We have a bricks and mortar shop in Heathfield, East Sussex where we always welcome first-time buyers, collectors and interior designers. We have retailed from the shop for 18 years and took over the premises ourselves in 2015 and have seen a gradual increase on returning customers. We pride ourselves on giving a personal, friendly shopping experience and hope you will arrive a stranger, but leave as a friend.

With our love of both antique and modern interiors, we enjoy helping our customers to furnish a space, whether it's a loft apartment, a club, a cottage or a castle. We have supplied many wonderful customers, including Soho House, The Box Club London, Elmore Court Gloucestershire, Bonnington House Scotland and the Ned Hotel London. I am happy to take a phone call seven days a week, 8am to 8pm or feel free to pop me over an email. We look forward to hearing from you.

Warmest regards, Miles.
