Painting

Dawn on the Seashore

This is an atmospheric 19th Century French painting attributed to Maxime Emile Louis Maufra (1861-1918). Oil on canvas, 8 3/4 x 14 inches, c. 1890s, unsigned, with a label on the back identifying the painting as Maufra's, framed. There is also a stamp on the back of the canvas "Blanchet 20 Rue Saint [Benoit?] Paris", a well known 19th century artist supply store. Although we cannot be certain of the artist, this is a well painted seascape with a subtle palette and lovely sense of light and atmosphere, and certainly appears to have been done by a very competent hand.
