Rhys Jenkins was a prominent Welsh artist of the early 20th century specializing in Orientalism and Marine scenes, a world traveller he painted street scenes in England, Europe and the Middle East.
During the early Century these scenes were immensely popular reflecting the popularity of the National Geographic issues that brought the far-away world into people's homes.
His series of English and European landmarks was successful and continue to be collected today.
This painting is a street scene from La Pila a little west of Venice in northeastern Italy located above the Roman town of Aosta. It was created in 1733 and located on the edge of a vast plain known as the Valli Grandi Veronesi, intensively cultivated ever since the introduction of rice farming in the late seventeenth century, made possible by the abundance of water from the nearby Adige River.
And today is a well known ski-resort.
Vintage frame is slightly chipped bottom left and right as a minor distraction. The lithograph is in good condition.
