Fine Art/Maurice Utrillo


Did he ever sign a work of art on the left hand lower corner?

Is there a work with a French Tabac as the central building?


Dear John,

Utrillo signed his paintings on both left and right lower margins. Since his primary theme was urban settings; and in particular street scenes in Montmartre, France; there is a great chance he included a tabac as a central building. I do not have an example or absolute confirmation; but it would fit with his work.

Best regards,

Fine Art
