Hello,

here I have another painting that I can not read the signature and was hoping to get some help from the forum.

It was acquired from Belgian art dealer who specializes in antique and modern art by Belgian or Flemish artists .... what I have here is antique oil on canvas painting, size of 15.5 x 23.5 inches unframed and this canvas was recently re-lined (see image). The painting is signed in bottom left corner and dated, I think it says 1915. But I can not read the signature other than "Bois" or something similar ..... I am also curious if somebody can recognize the location ....?

Thank you.
Cyril.

Hello.

I've read "MQ (or HQ) BOIS 1915".
Unfortunately I didn't find any painter with this signature.

Regards

Angelo

Hello Angelo!

thank you for your suggestion. Now it got me thinking what if BOIS was a name of the location (town in France or Holland or Belgium) and those two letters MQ or HQ are artist's monogram or initials ....??? I will look into that as well ....

Thank you.
Cyril.
