Oil painting on canvas measuring 4 x 3 inches
Julio Apen is a young painter from San Juan Comalapa. He specializes in very detailed paintings of scenes of everyday life in his home village. This painting was purchased in 2011 in a gallery in Antigua.
This is a miniature oil painting on stretched canvas, and measures approximately 4 x 3 inches. It is stretched but not framed. It is signed in the lower left "Julio v. Apen" and titled "Ollas". The scene depicts a man and woman selling pottery jars on the street in Comalapa. The painting is actually more finely detailed than my photograph.
This painting comes with a small wood easel, also made by the artist. Overall height of the easel is 6 inches, see photo below.
