Oil on canvas, 26" by 32" and 4" wide original frame, signed at lower right by mid century French well listed artist ABEL GERBAUD (1888-1954). This is a work in that modern School of Paris style popular at mid century. Note the title on the stretcher, "l'islandais dans le port de St. Goustain". That stretcher also bears some distinctive stencil numbers which often indicate in my experience that a work has been offered by Christie's auction house, and there is a tiny fraction of an original label with a street address ending in "ton". The painting is in excellent condition. Frame has lower corners both broken off and missing. I don't know a lot about the artist but there is an extensive auction record in Europe, some still life works having achieved around $5,000. .
