'Woman Alone with Her Thoughts' by Gaetano Bocchetti (circa 1960s)
'Woman Alone with Her Thoughts', oil on canvas (circa 1960s), in original giltwood frame. This painting captures its subject, a stylishly dressed woman, alone, transfixed in her thoughts. She doesn't appear to be awaiting for another as there is only one chair at the bistro table. She is the strong, independent type of person, happily single and comfortable on her own. The work is beautifully and expensively framed originating from a sumptuous estate in Milan, Italy. Excellent vintage condition. Signed: 'G Bocchetti'. Upon request a video of this artwork may be provided.
About the Artist: Gaetano Bocchetti (1888 - 1990) from Naples, Italy, dropped out of medical school after being accepted to the Neapolitan School of Fine Arts. Bocchetti left a tremendous body of work: lush Italian landscapes, still-lifes and intimate portraits of people on their own, mostly women. Bocchetti's frescoes grace the walls of churches and his paintings hang in museums and in private international collections that periodically come to auction at the major houses. Bocchetti died in 1990 having lived until he was 102.
