Oil painting of the front of a noted cafe, "La Bonne Entente", signed at lower right by artist "Vanet". This 8 1/4" by 10" (14 1/4" by 16 1/4" framed) work is by a Bulgarian woman artist by the name IVANKA PETROVA-TZEKOV, born 1956. She has been in France since 1983, painting colorful, figure-filled works of nightclubs and other scenes with multiple figures. She was a 1982 graduate of the Academy of Fine Arts in Sofia. The artist's talents have been specially recognized by the Moulin Rouge nightclub, which has entered into a special agreement with her, allowing her to use its famous name. Tzekov's works have been the focus of a 2017 exhibition "From Paris to Plovdiv", which will no doubt favor her work with further international exposure. The work is behind glass. The paint is on board, I believe, or it might be on heavy paper---not canvas. I have not opened the backing.
