Customer Question
Hi, I have a...

Hi, I have a picture I bought at a thrift shop. 1937 painting of a street in France. Artist, Maurice Atrillo. I can feel the brush strokes so I'm sure its not a print

Expert's Assistant: I always love having an appraiser look at my stuff. Sometimes its turned out to be surprisingly valuable. Tell us what else you do know and the Antiques Appraiser will be able to better assist you.

I just bought it, all I know is what is on picture where the artist signed his name and the year

Expert's Assistant: Is there anything else the Antiques Appraiser should be aware of?

Left hand corner not sure but looks like artist wrote, Monmortre, Lave Cseur?
