Dear Sven-Anders, Thank you for contacting Mearto with your appraisal inquiry. Your delightful oil painting of two figures walking along a pathway towards the ocean at dawn seems to be by the 19th-century French artist called Emile Adelard Breton (1831-1902). It is signed on the lower right, and the dimensions are 62 cm (h) x 92 cm (w). It is housed in an original carved gilt frame, and the condition looks very good overall. Emile Adelard Breton usually signs his painting with "E" or "Emile" followed by "Breton", but the way his signature is done here, I can see some great similarities with those from other paintings he did. He is also best known for his atmospheric landscapes with figures very similar to the work you own. The estimate provided is based on comparables offered and sold at auction in the last five years. The subject work’s size, the composition, condition (based on photographs provided), as well as the artists’ current auction market were taken into consideration when determining the estimate. In many cases, pricing for similar items available on the primary (retail) market vary and are often higher than secondary (auction) market examples. Please note that this valuation has been provided on the condition of authenticity, which may need to be confirmed with additional research. For more information, please visit Best regards, Karine
