This is an original oil on wood panel by the listed Belgian artist Pierre Scoupreman (1873-1960). Pierre Scoupreman was a Belgian fauvist painter of landscapes, interiors, and still lifes. He was friends with Auguste Oleffe, Rik Wouters, Louis Thevenet, and later in his life with Henri Victor Wolvens. This wonderful landscape painting with figures dates from the early 1900s and measures 11" by 14 1/4". It is signed at the lower left "P. Scoupreman". The painting was done with thick paint in broad strokes. There are some small chips to the wood panel on the right edge and some wear on the left edge.. all would be covered by a frame. There is no frame. The backside of the panel has an unfinished painting by Scoupreman, and is marked in pencil "Le Petit... " I cannot make out the rest. This is a wonderful painting. You will be very pleased. The record price on askart for this artist was a painting titled "LEZENDE VROUW IN INTERIEUR (1918)" which measured 15.94" x 14.37" and sold for $2625 on 3/8/2008.
