My daughter found a paining she liked at a yard sale. To me it looks like 1950ish Paris street art. It's on silk and it has some bright colors it's stretched on a wooden frame. We found some like pictures on the Internet but there was no listing of the painter. I know it's not worth much but identifying the artist is starting to bug me a little.



Can anyone help?

From the same artist. Art Deco.

Thanks I saw that. Art Deco is the style it says signed but it doesn't mention an artist.

I recon the last part/surname is "Pont", so DuPont or DePont perhaps. A very French name.

They have a clearer signature.

It reminds me of the stuff that the artists sell at Monmartre in Paris.

I actually saw that in an office I cleaned but couldn't tell you who did it. Sorry.

The period clothes does not look 50'ish, they look more like the gay 90's time period and after a very thorough search of 1500 pictures of the arc de triumph I can say without a doubt it is not Antoine Blanchard, but it is a very pretty picture. I will keep searching. It does appear to be a watercolor and it does appear to have been done by an accomplished artist. I wish I could see it up close and personal!

I have tried like hell to help, my friend, all to no avail.

I blame the painting, because it's French.

Van Gogh. That is my final answer. Boom, wrap it up. You're welcome.

Thanks for trying everybody. You might want to check out absolutetruths links the images are better on the signature.

Looks to me like it says "LOL Paris".

Maybe it's more contemporary than you think, heh heh.

It could be a generalization? I don't think they used "LOL" at that time though. Lol

Looks a bit like the last name is Picot, but there's several of them.
Andre Picot?

I'm pretty sure that says "La Pont" or "La Porte", stylized, based on the stylization of the P. Note the squared top left side & where the long C-like line meets it -- I think what looks like a sloppy L or C is a artsy continuation of the P itself, not a separate letter. I ran the photo of the suspected signature through my photo editing software, and got it as clear as possible for me. It didn't really help much other than draw my attention to the P's stylized side.

That said, I think this may be a title to the painting, not the artist. So this is probably titled either "La Pont" (The Bridge) or "La Porte" (The Gate) My French was never that great, but I'm pretty sure it says one of those two.

There may be a signature somewhere still, maybe on the back. My advice is to take it to an art dealer and see what they have to say. it might not be anything done by someone super-famous, but it may be worth enough to consider insuring still.

Thanks

The style and colors are very similar, but the signatures are completely different. I'm looking for his brothers/sisters or students right now.

Any way you could get a clearer picture of the signature?

My daughter sent it to me. She's in Cleveland right now to protest. When she gets back I'll go over and post a better picture.
