Mystery Painting...














The mystery print. It is 20x28. There seems to be no signature.

It was found in a junk shop in central Oklahoma, neatly and expensively framed.

Is there more from this artist/illustrator? Who is it?
Is it Francois Schuiten? Looks like his work but can someone confirm it? Have you seen this print in a book? Or have you seen another copy of it anywhere?






Yes, I refuse to use
Kleenex
until
THIS
stops.

    looking at this picture, i was remotely reminded of what Mr. Schuiten does, a belgium comic artist.
    see: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fran%C3%A7ois_Schuiten

    the shown houses in the front are of what i would call central european, german/danish/benelux style.
    the left and back houses are more generic (european).

    Thanks for the help! Indeed it does look like the work of Schuiten. I will see if I can get a confirmation.

    Thanks. This has been on here two years now and no one has identified it. I carried links to it for a long time on every page too. It is realistic until you begin to study it and then you realize it is fantasy.

    Hello,

    i am the "anonymous" which posted in 2007.

    i was curious, and checked back on this page every now and then, but aparently noone could identify it, making me think its a very unique drawing !
    That would explain why noone could name the artist in such a long time.
    i found a few minor things which may be of interest, although i dont think the mystery can be uncovered...
    -below the big right tower, over a window above the stairs, there is a inscription in faint, big old lettering "3T".
    -there are a lot of "bridge-arches" which may be another hint.
    -the clay chimneys on the right all look
    similar.
    -i believe the drawing is an allegory, where
    the two sides, right and left, represent
    northern and southern europe...

    best regards,

    Uwe
