Looks like Gustave Loiseau or Alfred Sisely.

It looks too like the location may Argenteuil or somewhere near Rouen.

The colors are somewhat reminiscent of Gustave Caillebotte, circa 1882-1888.

Any clues?

Re: Mm2172

From the high key and the drawing style, I'd guess an American Impressionist of some sort. But I don't know enough about them to say who.

Looks like Providence, Rhode Island.

Some of the brushwork looks like Childe Hassam's.

I recognize some American painters in the photo. Is that the Ten?

edit: Yeah, that is the Ten.

Maybe it's Metcalf or Weir?

Willard Leroy Metcalf (American, 1858-1925).
Gloucester Harbor, 1895. Oil on canvas. 66.4 x 74.3 cm (26 1/8 x 29 1/4 in.).

Metcalf is seated second from the left in the group photo.
