@ChristineSe,
I have no idea, but it looks more like a painting than a photograph. Do you know if the yellowing is deliberate or a result of age? If it's deliberate it could well be somewhere in London. Claude Monet came to London specifically to draw the pollution.

https://i.guim.co.uk/img/media/574951b8c1a5d0fe5644c95f2425c429c3760e5d/30_63_2578_1547/master/2578.jpg?width=700&quality=85&auto=format&fit=max&s=a27d89801542a4c8b8f09d06c93576b9

Having said that it could be anywhere in Europe, it reminds me of Scarborough, but a lot of UK coastal towns have similar architecture.

Sorry I can't be of more help.

@izzythepush,
There are reports that this is a photo of an artist using the technique of Pictorialism ( the yellowish maybe of gelatin silver print ) like LĂ©onard Misonne for explain (Pictorialism is an international style and aesthetic movement that dominated photography during the later 19th and early 20th centuries) ...But there are also many opinions that this is a painting, google image search results like this didn't work for me!
Thakn you izzythepush you for your reply!

@ChristineSe,
If the yellowing is due to production that only increases where it could be. I noticed a couple of cars in the shot which would make it early 20th Century.

The buildings look Tudor or mock Tudor, but that only increases things further.

It does seem familiar though. I'm English and live in the UK. The cars are parked on the left which could indicate Britain.

Sorry I'm still v vague.

@izzythepush,
The little archway bottom centre left reminds me of a medieval shambles. This is the part of the city where livestock were butchered and sold, no refrigeration back then. I had a look for shambles, omitting York which is very popular, and got a few pictures that looked a bit similar but not it.

This is Manchester shambles which is the closest I could get to it.

I don't know if I'm being of any help or muddying the waters.

@izzythepush,
izzythepush you are very kind, I really spent several hours looking for the artist!

Do you think it could be in the Alsace-Lorraine area or somewhere in France?


also a question, i can't find my post in which forum does it appear?

@ChristineSe,
Forums are dependent upon tags which only you can do. Currently you've tagged it art identification forum so that's where it will be, in a little forum on it's own. Have a look at some of the more established forums and tag your post so it goes there. You may have to remove your original tag.

It could be Alsace Lorraine, but I've never been there. I have been to other parts of France and it could well be from there. I have looked for old buildings in the Channel Islands, but I've not had any success.

It could be Dutch or Belgian or even Danish, I really don't know and wish I could help more. It's been quite interesting though.

Its a print of a schmaltzy German painting of the 1880's - 1900's.

@ChristineSe,
First of all, there are different ways to get a print. This one appears to be an all color at one pass, a method used to make the most copies for the least cost.

When I look at the work, the sky doesn't have all the care the buildings do,
the sky seems out of "perspective" somehow. The detail and "dramatic light/shadow" don't quite seem to match the sky either. All the detail is very precise, like an architectural draftsman. There's no real evidence of a recent human touch, almost looks like someone walking through a decades deserted town. The architecture of the houses look "germanish", the autos of no particular make or nation, they could have been left there years ago. The shadow line on the buildings suggest a lower setting sun than the shadow line on the clouds does. I think that's the perspective thing I see.

That's my opinion from what I can see, which isn't much. I'd like to see the frame - front and back, I'd like to see any writing or labels, I'd like to a close up of any detail and one of the signature. I'd like a photo up close so I can see any fasteners on the frame.

Its pretty hard to really know anything from your one photo.
