This is a very nice oil painting on canvas by Filipino artist Jose B. David. This piece shows a Philippine landscape with men and women working in a rice field. This piece is signed in the lower left in oil "Jose B. David". This piece is also signed on the back on the stretcher bar but its hard to make out please check out the photo. This piece is also titled in the lower left in oil "Philippines". This piece is also dated in oil in the lower left "1948".
In my opinion it is in good to very good condition. There are some minor scratches and it is a little dirty. The Frame is in poor to fair condition. Please see photo to form your own opinion to it's condition.
The image size measures 20 inches height and 25 inches width.
The frame size measures 23 1/2 inches height and 28 1/2 inches width.
This is some information I found on the WikiAnswers website about Jose B. David.
Jose' B. David was a Filipino artist working in the mid-20th Century. Most of his earliest works were destroyed during the occupation of the Philippines. In the early 1950's, he was assigned to the house staff of Col. Dache M. Reeves, Base Commander, who purchased one of David's watercolors, dated 1943. The subject is four rice paddy workers and their field boss during a rainstorm. The angle of the rain in the painting is counterpoint to the stance of the workers, resulting in a strong play of tension.
