Question
unknown french scene
unknown french scene  
I am trying to no avail to identify this painting , could you help?
Thank you very much

Answer
Dear John,

I agree your painting looks like a Paris street scene. I would estimate it to be mid-20th century. There were many street artists who would paint on the streets and sell directly to the tourists. This may be the work of one of these artist. The style is very common for that era and attribution to a particular artist who is listed would be very difficult. It is a beautiful painting and I hope you enjoy it in your home or office.

Kind regards,
Dolly
