Hi I bought a picture from a car boot sale a few months ago in the hope it could be worth a few quid. It's a signed renoir it's an oil painting on canvas blue vase, I have included some photos, any information would be great it is also signed on the back of the frame by what looks to be an art appraiser
thank you in advance

Dear Roy,

The work you have looks exactly like a faded Renoir oil on canvas titled "Spring Bouquet" (1866) that is currently at the Fogg Art Museum in Cambridge, Massachusetts, USA:  . Oil on canvas' are usually only done once by an artist so I am not quite sure what you have. You will want to contact the authority on all things Renoir, the Comité Renoir, whose information can be found below. Best of luck, Andrew Evans.
