Why do you think it is French?

I read the signature as Lemche, and there is a Danish painter (hitherto unknown to me) by the name of Hans Martin Lemche (1904-1973).

I have found examples of his signature as H.M. Lemche:
https://www.google.com/search?q=h.m.+lemche&client=firefox-b-d&sxsrf=ACYBGNTGXp7epjBWquAI9ehlg6_A57QX4Q:1575397329031&source=lnms&tbm=isch&sa=X&ved=2ahUKEwi64LSxjJrmAhVLaFAKHVyqBkQQ_AUoAXoECAsQAw&biw=1133&bih=1066#imgrc=0O3h7FOMpcPGTM:

In a book with Danish artists' signatures a Lemche signature similar to yours is shown (attached). The book is from 1945, so "Lemche" was his signature at that time. Earlier he used monograms.
He painted mostly landscapes, but also portraits and still lifes.
