Oil on board painting of old houses in an American town, " by " (" by " framed), the auto in the scene suggesting a circa 1930 date, unsigned, housed in an old 19th century Victorian style frame with patterned gold inner fillet. The work suggests to me the famous watercolor art of American artist Charles Burchfield, or at least other painters of the "American Scene" and WPA period. The work has been subjected to water which has left a pattern of water drops over the surface. This could likely be handled by a professional cleaning and restoration. Compare to the Burchfield style. Were this by that artist, the price would be well in the five figures, possibly more.
