Hi, my name is*****'m a certified appraiser, and I'd be happy to help.Le Lapin Agile is quite a famous painting by Utrillo, which does not at all resemble your painting. That's not a signature you pictured, just someone's note written on the frame. appears that your frame once held a print of the Utrillo work, and was later used for this floral painting.Is there a signature on the painting itself?Jennifer

Hi and thanks.I would need to revisit it and remove the canvas from the frame.Do you think this floral painting is a Utrillo?Thanks,Michael

It's in the same style as his florals, but he did typically sign his work, quite large, towards the bottom. I'd need to know if there was a signature, and it would also help to see an angled close-up of the brushstrokes.Jennifer
