Hi there,

I am really struggling to get anywhere identifying this picture or artist's signature. The composition is quite nice and it seems to depict a French or turn of centruy scene. There seem to be some impressionist touches and creative colouring.
I think it is in chalk pastel with some gouache. I like a couple of the characters, girl with the hoop and stick, man with the barrow.

Does anybody have any ideas? I tried reverse image search google which did not really help, and the signature is just a bit too indechiperable for me to get a name.

Thanks for any advice.

Even if the signature it's not just the same , the painter of this work could be Giulio Da Milano.

I'd say the name reads either Wildner or Mildner in a very recent handwriting and you will not find its maker in any of the current databases as she (yes, definitely a she) was probably a romantic schoolgirl from the seventies or eighties.

Most interesting, thanks. Angelo I will look at that link cheers. Also I personally think the signature is a bit masculine, but have no real basis for that other than a feel it is so. @bodo thanks but what are you basing it being done by a girl on?? and is there any reason why you see the signature as recent handwriting?

The scene is around 1910, the signature is in ballpoint, so after 1950, maybe way after. The colours are synthetic, so after 1970. The paper absorbs the pigment as only modern, mass produced paper does. And then: school girls love pink. They paint everything pink, even the skies and the streets.

But far more importantly: I cannot argue or make you see that this is not done by a master's hand. I can only state that it is not. From decades of experience.

rogstercode, you sure this is 'Chalk and Pastel'? Looks like watercolour hightened with gouache to me. At least parts of it, like the outlines of the buildings, are painted in 'wet-on-wet', with liquid paint and brush. And maybe all of it.

Thanks all, I am not trying to see it as a masters hand! You can see it is naiively done, albeit with some good touches.
Chalk and pastel was my first guess I need to examine more closely yes, there is certainly gouache used too.
