Shipping calculated at checkout.

This late 1940's signed portrait is one of our studio favorites! Edouard Righetti was a Swiss born Mid-Century artist (b.1924) known primarily for his work in painting and printmaking. Though he was born Swiss, he moved away early in life and spent most of his life living and creating in France. He was known for his stylistic depictions of peasants, animals, landscapes and the sadness of suburbia. Righetti participated in numerous Salons and exhibitions internationally during his career and is widely collected. Righetti often signed his art "Ed" as you will note on this work. This expressionistic and exquisite portrait in charcoal/conte is a wonderful example of the characters in everyday Parisian life in the 1940's.

The bottom of the work is signed "Paris 1948, Ed Righetti)

This piece comes ready-to- frame with a custom 3" acid-free archival mat and acid-free foamcore backing.
