Question
Dear Maris I have a picture signed Maurice Utrillo V it is on a board of some kind I can see brush strokes but Icant figure out if its an oil on board because the texture is lightly rough or could it be something else? are reproductions done on textured board? I know it is very old because it belonged to my great grandmother I am baffled because I frequent antique shops and have for about 20 years and have never seen any other picture like this discription any answers would be appreciated  thank u Terry

Answer
Not to worry.  He did do oil on board and panel. Reproductions could be done on board, but you should be able to see a difference in the work itself.  :)
