Fine Art/Vlaminck - French Farmhouse

Question
Oil on canvas painting - signed boldly Vlaminck on bottom left.  Tag on back reads:  
Title - French Farmhouse
Artist - VLAMINCK
Frame No - M654
Order  #2141

Painting measures 31x 25 with frame 34x40.  

Do not know anything about art.  Bought at garage sale because it was reasonable for an oil painting and was thinking of putting it on ebay.  

Answer
Is there a piece number to it? This would most likely be located in the bottom right corner. I recommend comparing your piece to these works by Vlaminck:

There is a good chance it is not worth much if it is a simple reproduction. If it is an original print by Vlaminck, it could be worth a couple thousand dollars.

If you are going to sell it on eBay, be as truthful as you can about the piece. eBay has cracked down somewhat on items of forgery. So if you are not certain it is an original work, just describe the piece as best you can without guaranteeing anything.
