Thanks

Thank you for requesting me. I appreciate it. This is a Paris street scene and he was known for these types of paintings. The value is(###) ###-####00 and depends on how you market this as his works fluctuate all over the board. The large size means a predominant wall to view this on. If you are looking to sell this I would try the Auction Houses listed below to give you a wider audience and higher value then privately selling. Thank you

Antonio De Vity (1901-1993)

He was born in Reggio-Calbria in southern Italy. He lived in Naples and later moved to Rome where he was taught by Giacomo Balla, creator of futurism. He lived and worked in Paris, then returned to Naples, opening a studio and producing paintings of France and Italy for the remainder of his career.

De Vity's works have won international awards and he is recognized for his bright colors and impressionist treatment of the streets and waterways of Paris and Venice.

Does the lack of back stamp mean anything why doesn't have one

Not all paintings had back stamps. Some galleries or studios put them on and others do not. This may have been a painting he sold through his own store and chose not to have a studio stamp. I have not seen his paintings have back stamps.

One last question do you know what year he started using the stamp

The "studio D'Arte Italia" stamp on the back began in 1951 and ended when his studio closed.

Thank you also here is another short biography on him

Antonio DeVity (1901-1993) Antonio De Vity was born in Reggio Calbria, he was an Italian painter born in Naples. He moved to Paris where he studied under Antoine Blanchard and with Giacomo Balla. He is known for pictures of Paris street life and also Venetian canals. During his time in Paris, he attended L'Ecole des Beaux Arts and exhibited at Notre Dame, le Café de la paix, and le Moulin Rouge. DeVity returned to Naples in 1950 and opened a studio that, within ten years, became a key meeting place for Neapolitan artists. More than 20 painters studied with him and he had exhibits in major international cities including 1953 in Bruxelles, 1955 in Marrakech, and 1956 in Madrid. He spent his later life in Naples where his studio sold and exported works for many years. His works are said to have won international awards and his pieces are widely collected. (quoted from Wikipedia)

Last do you think this panting is 1950 since it has no stamp

Yes I believe it is one that was done free style on the streets and signed. It may be late 1940s to 1950 I dont believe it was one he did in his studio.
