Boats in the Harbour – French School, 19th century


Attractive oil on canvas painting representing a marine scene. Pleasure boats brave the choppy waters next to a coastal village as several spectators on the esplanade look on enjoying the view. French school late nineteenth century. The painting is signed in the lower right corner, although it is illegible. Very good condition, with signs of past restoration.

We would be very grateful for assistance in identifying the village in this painting, likely on the French coastline.
