    This fine painting is by the leading Venetian genre painter Antonio Ermolao Paoletti. The work depicts a canal side scene: a young boy has caught an eel on a fishing rod, which he dangles before a mother and child to their apparent horror. The diffused outline of a church indicates the distant shoreline, and the water between is home to several sailing boats. Paoletti’s painterly manner is excellent: he employs fluid brushstrokes tandem with delicate ones to create a visually and texturally appealing painted surface.

    The painting is held within an ornate carved giltwood frame and is signed lower right ‘Antonio Paoletti fu Giov_ni / Venezia’. The frame is titled bottom centre ‘Catching A Farter / A. Paoletti’.

    Artist/maker: Antonio Ermolao Paoletti (Italian, 1834-1912)
