I wonder if anyone here can identify this painting and the artist who painted it.
It has been in my wife's family since the 1940's, when her father brought it over from France. It is a small, unsigned oil painting on canvas. We have tried researching it but unsuccessfully. A professional researcher here thinks it is a student work from around the early1900's, perhaps copying another more established artist's work.
If you can identify it, I hope you can enlighten us. It would be so nice to know the name of the artist.
