    Info please on etching by V. Carre'
    Just acquired a colored etching signed in pencil by V.(I think) Carre', which I am guessing is from the 30's or earlier. It is of a village scene with a windmill in the background, and in pencil just below left side is written, I believe, "Ryssord". On the back of the original frame is a sticker stating "Original Etching by Carre", and goes on to say he "is famous for his etchings depicting scenes in France, Holland and Belgium", and that "this etching was made and signed by Carre in his studio near Paris". The etching, showing good talent, is about 6"x8" in a 11"x15" frame. Can anyone help me with value or info on Carre'? Thanks!

    I just purchased two colorful pictures at a tag sale the other day, both with the same "V. Carre" in pencil on the bottom. From what I have been able to decipher, V. Carre is Vieux Carre, which means "old square" in French. It turns out that Vieux Carre is the other name for the French Quarter, the oldest neighborhood in New Orleans. V. Carre appears not the name of an artist, which really makes these paintings mysterious.
