Artist's Signature  

I recently bought a painting at a rummage sale and I am trying to identify the artist. I'm hoping that you can help me.

The painting is 24"x48" and a faded note on the back reads:

J. Rosenuior (or Rosenguier)  [really not readable even using a loupe]

Born in 1916 at Vienna, Austria, he is one of the most well-known Viennese "Town painters. His works were exhibited in Vienna, Berlin, Munich and at several other German towns, where especially his Paris scenes were greatly appreciated.

I have photographed the image and separately the artist's signature.

I'm hoping that you can assist me in learning more about the artist and/or the painting. Thanks in advance.

Hello Gary,
I read the signature as Reseguier. I don't see the names you have listed so maybe you have more information than what is in the photos. He may have remained a local artist who is still well known in his village, but not worldwide. I am sorry I could not be of more help.
Best regards,

Fine Art
