Dear ladies and gentlemen,

I bought this watercolour painting. It is made on paper, dated 1929 and size is ca.80x50cm. Can anybody identify the signature? Thank you for trying and kindest regards.

Hi,

This is a wonderful period piece.
It seems like a quality painting that is worth researching.
Do you have any background info on it?

Regards,
Tina

Very good, Merray!
Did you know the artist beforehand? I could gather so much that the monogram was PY / YP, but did not find the artist from that.
It is not in this compilation:
http://www.artistssignatures.com/cyrillic.php?page=0&letter=p

http://www.artistssignatures.com/cyrillic.php?page=0&letter=y

And i thought the first letter in the name of the city was I.

Regards,
Vietato

I recommend the Ask Art forum at BidtoArt.com

No, I didn't know the signature beforehand, but yes the initials were "Yu" and "P" so it wasn't that hard to figure it out from this point, especially knowing the year (and therefore approximate life time of the artist) the city it was painted in, and obviously the nationality of the artist.

Wow! Thank you - especially Merray - for your help. I'm very impressed!
I bought this painting at a flea market (very cheap). It was rolled and needs some professional restauration.
Once again: Thank you!!!
