N.B. This label probably matches
another painting OR this painting BUT then the first version

Mysterious Writings on the back of the Frames
"Creu" "Creuse" "P Moderne" "P M" or writings by the
same hand. We do not know what the meaning of these
words could be. We know that Claude Monet used
exhibition frames that had to be returned to Giverny if
the painting was sold. We also know that his collection
of frames still was at Giverny in 1975.
Information and photos about other paintings with frames
carrying the same kind of words,
written by the same hand. Please
remeber that paintings by Blanche Hosched�-Monet also could
have frames that might have these words written on them!
