    Hi,

    I am trying to identify the artist of this pastel painting.

    It is signed (which I cant decipher!) and dated 31 10 1945.

    On the reverse of the paper is a stamp referring to the maker of the actual paper. It says they won a bronze medal at the Exposition Universelles - meaning top quality paper.

    Also on the back frame is a stamp which I believe is a Belgian "Duty Paid" stamp..import tax ? (I found the painting in Brussels ).

    I am guessing it is either French or Belgian -possibly Dutch.

    If anyone can identify the signature or has any clues I would really appreciate your help.

    To me it is a stunning painting - even more so when you consider it was painted only a few months after the war ended

    thanks

    Paul

    p.s ADMINS - I cant flip the first picture to be the right way round... tried everything can you do it ? thank s

      Edit the pic. I find that each pic needs to be edited or it won’t behave. I crop a bit off a side. That should do it.

      BB2 IS here ! The royal seal isn't real clear, but appears to be Belgie. Not French or Dutch. Great painting. Would look great on MY wall !

      Hi Blunderbuss,

      Yes I agree the stamp is Belgian - its a tax stamp - suggesting it was imported into the country..? meaning it was not Belgian ?

      thanks for the interest!
