A PAIR of watercolor paintings of classic scenes of Montmartre, each 8 3/8" by 10 3/8" (and each 15" by 17 1/2" as identically framed), each signed at lower left by French artist AMEDEE PREVOST. One work features the white Sacre Coeur church dome in the distance, figures and an artist completing the scene, the other work featuring a street easel artist painting a picturesque old house. Prevost does not seem to have a biography online, but a work dated 1897 would indicate a birth date of at least 1870 or so, and these works and others suggest the artist was painting into the 1950's. Both paintings are in excellent, fresh condition, the colors not faded. Green mats and tasteful framing (framing by prestigious Knoedler Gallery in New York) make for a most attractive set. The gold frames have very slight wear.
