Camilla Lucas 1935 NY-USA
Asked Jun 12, 2005, 07:20 AM
Below I am providing the specifics about the etching that I have so that information on the picture itself and its value can be determined.
I certainly appreciate whatever efforts in getting this information that you can provide.
My etching appears to be that of a country French village with a house on the right, a bridge with water that flows under the bridge, and trees to the left of the picture.
The colors in the picture mostly consist of browns, reds, and greens.
The frame appears to be the original.
It is antique gold with light brown matting with dimensions that are 19 x 22. The old wire hanger in the back is split in half because of age, and besides having a little discoloration in the matting, the picture appears to be in good condition.
My Etching has Copyright 1935 Camilla Lucas-NY-USA in the upper right hand side of the picture.
The word Sur l'Escaut (or Sur l'Escant) is in the lower left hand side of the picture.
There is a triangle blended in with the picture just above this word with three initials SLL.
The name De Foutauie (or De Fontauie) is written in the lower left hand side of the picture. It is hard to determine whether the letter in this name is a "u" or an "n"
I have had this in my family for more than 50 years.
Any information will be greatly appreciated.
