I have a bas relief medallion plaster cast, 6 inches in

Customer Question

I have a bas relief medallion plaster cast, 6 inches in diameter, of a profile portrait of a young girl. Writing on it is "Lise Clare, 1937, Paris". It has no signature or artist name on it. Any ideas on how to acquire its artist info? It was my grandparents and we have no history on it.
Thanks for your assistance.

Is there anything on the back of the piece?
