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.
