Looks like it says Laurent. It's a French painting and the green building says "books and stamps" in French.
To me it looks more like Lawrence, but I didn't find any artists with that name whose style matches this style...which to me is a cross between a Modern French Impressionist and the American Realist painter Edward Hopper.
There is an artist named Laurent Parcelier whose work is very similar to yours, but when I try to match the signatures, he seems to always sign his with his last name, not his first name.
This link shows some of his works that are similar to yours, but I was not able to find an exact match.
He is still living...I could not find contact info for him (no surprise), but here is a gallery where he shows his work
Maybe they could tell you more info if it truly is his or just someone with a similar style. I am always reaching out to the experts for info and in most cases (I would say 9 of 10) people are generally helpful if you ask your question in a kind and clear way.
Good luck! Let us know what you find!

Anyone know who this artist with signature "Dylan" is? And if the painting is worth anything? Thank you!
To a lay person it would appear that this painting could be in Bob Dylan 'style' but only an expert could tell you if it is authentic and they would have to have access to the painting.
I do not remember seeing his signature without having Bob with it but I've only really seen the signature a few times so my opinion really means nothing.
I think if someone wanted to capitalize on his name could/would use Dylon only just in case they're 'caught' and maybe try to say it was just a 'name' they used.
(most of his signatures are not that 'neat' and he seems he usually uses a different style 'y')
You do not say what type of material is used and, of course, that is another reason a painting has to be seen in person.
There are free online appraisal sites that may tell you if they believe the signature could be authentic but would not confirm anything without seeing the painting.
Perhaps how/where you acquired this painting would give you some idea as to its authenticity as Dylon's paintings are never cheap.
If you post your pictures on this site someone may be able to tell you more or at least give an opinion about the signature.
You will have to join Reddit but this site gets a lot of answers..
Maybe someone can provide enough information that you can decide if the cost of an official appraisal would be in line.
I have done some research on Bob Dylan and his painting. It appears that he painted for several years while touring with his band. The style of this painting is quite a bit different than some of his other works of art. I have tried to find a site that shows all of his painting but I have had no luck on this one. There are still a few paintings out there for sale and they are quite expensive. Most of his paintings that are offered for sale at the moment range from 3000-5900 dollars. I would like to suggest that you find an art appraiser in your area and talk with them. Just looking at this painting in a photo here makes it really hard to actually say if he painted it or not. You need to get this looked at to make sure it is really a painting by Bob Dylan. If it is then it could be worth quite a bit of money. It is not uncommon that people buy paintings like this and sell them at a yard sale for almost nothing and have never realized that they could have a valuable painting in their possession. I would get this looked at right away because you may be surprised if it really is one of his paintings.
I did reverse image searches of the signature and the painting and my gut reaction is it is someonea art project--no one famous, BUT, know that there can still be value in it!
I would almost guarantee it is not Bob Dylan for two reasons--his signature is very well known and this looks nothing like it, but more importantly is his themes--at least all I have seen are very US based in genre and this has an Asian vibe to it (to me). It does not feel like a US location.
It is an interesting cityscape. If you have a local art dealer, I would have him/her check it out and first verify it is indeed paint on canvas and not a print on canvas and see if they have any idea of the artist or if the framing can give a hint to the origins.
Beauty is in the eye of the beholder and if you are trying to sell it, once you have more info, you may be able to fetch something for it just based on the theme and colors and size.
Post back what you learn!!
Does anybody know the name of this painting made by Francoise Fressinier? I have been searching all over the internet and still haven't found out the name or even the painting.
The artist is Francois Fressinier and the painting name is Dia Soleado ll but cannot tell from the picture what type of material this one is (the one on eBay is a vintage poster so not very valuable).
Many of Francois Fressinier's paintings sell for thousands but these are usually very limited numbers and are generally sold in an art gallery. The Martin Lawrence Galleries seem to handle his paintings so you may be able to contact one of the galleries if you need more information. I believe they sell all types of each painting so they should be able to tell you about this one.
There are a few listed online for sale. The name they have listed this painting under is Dia Soleado II. There is one that is a litho poster listed on eBay for $69. This is the asking price of the piece but they will accept the best offer. it doesn't look like anyone is interested in this print. I am not sure if yours is a painting or a litho print like the one they are selling on eBay. Painting normally goes for a much higher value than prints do. I am not sure if you just want to know the name or if you are interested in the value so you can sell this painting.
This painting was actually found by a dumpster when moving out of an apartment in Florida. It was in great condition and I liked the scene. The canvas is on a wood frame that has an engraving that says "ARTISTS MATERIAL, Grumbacher, New York." The length of the wood is also stamped "30"or etched "36" onto the wood piece.Any help on the artist and value would be appreciated! Thank you!
Most of the information posted on your 'Dylon' painting would apply to this one also.
The name on the frame ARTISTS MATERIAL, Grumbacher, New York, is a company that sells all tyoes of art material to artists.
"Grumbacher is an American manufacturer of art materials. The company offers products for artists including oil, water-miscible oil, watercolor and acrylic paints."
I believe this is probably a painting by a local, unknown artist and was just no longer to the person's taste.
However, many 'unknown' artists do become famous in later years.
Post your picture on these sites and see what responses you receive.
From what I can see here the information on the frame is by the company who actually framed this canvas. I am not finding information on the signature of the canvas but that doesn't mean that the artist who actually painted this is famous or not. You have also posted a second painting here by Dylan. I would consider taking both of these to the same art dealer and have them looked at. Without examining the painting and knowing more about them it is so hard to give you a quote. Only a dealer can tell you the value of the two painting and it is best to have them looked at if you want to sell them or insure them.
Does anybody know anything about this painting ? Author, name of the painting, year, etc. Been trying to find something on internet but nothing.
I don't really think you will ever find any information about this painting at all. The signature on the painting is not one that I can find anywhere. This almost looks like a person was taking an art class and this was a project they did. I know a lot of people who have gone into painting recently and paint similar pieces just like this. They like the style of the painting and the color scheme that is used. I have a friend who does a lot of portrait painting for people here. What she does is very unique to me but the technique has been there for so long. She takes a color photo of the person, used a projector to project the image to canvas, then color or paints the canvas. This way it helps her to get down the right shading and colors she is looking for when the portrait is finished.
I just want to know if this is an original or print by Henry Peeters. Does a print usually come with the signature on the painting? I have never seen that, that's why I'm asking.Any info you can pass along will be appreciated! The "Made in Canada" sticker on the back just raised more questions about the painting.
Henry Peeters - Glenham Arbor
Probably a print but you might be able to Google - photo lab with your zip code and most likely they will be able to tell you as they make copies of all sorts of paintings so they would know for sure.
Also, you may be surprised but most likely some one at a local pawn shop (large shop) can tell you in a couple of seconds.
It may even be a copy as this company make copies of works like this (they have local artist the 'recreate' the works).
These same painting is listed for sale on several sites but there is no way to compare until you know what you have.
Henry Peeters is a well known Chinese artist and his paintings are sold in several art galleries all over the world.
Here is a site that sells the prints so this could have been a place like this only located in Canada.
