An impressionist painting of the famous obelisk and fountain in the center of Paris at the iconic Place de la Concorde, 24" by 29" (and the very nice period frame 31" by 36"). Curiously, the work is unsigned but the artist was obviously talented. Paint is thickly applied in places, thinly in others (artist used bare canvas in places to show clouds). The date of execution would be circa mid 1950's to about 1960, judging from the old-style vehicle at right center; this is a classic scene painted at a classic time after the war. There are a few flakes missing in the fountain bowl (showing as light spots) and also in the jacket of the bicycle rider and one or two other places, but all is lost in the busyness of the scene and technique. Painting will be shipped out of the frame as it was not well secured with nails etc. when found.
