Venturini, P. (Italian, 20th century), Dalla Terra la Vita, Dalla Vita Ogni Bene [From the Earth Life, From Life Every Good], c.1950s, possibly earlier, oil on canvas, signed lower left, and signed and titled in Italian on reverse, 38 x 58 inches. A powerful social realist scene showing a multitude of responsibilities of a farming family. The words Renzo, Al Capo Cantonier and Sig. Vezzano appear on the reverse but have been struck through. Provenance: private collection, Pittsburgh, PA, brought over from Italy in the 1950s. We were not able to find any additional info on an artist named P. Venturini.
