Default Please Help Me

Hello, i have been trying to research an artist for years now and have had no luck. I have a large (48.5x48.5in-frame included) painting of a tiger signed by a Delongprie. I have not been able to find out anything about this artist. There is a Rene De longpre, but his primary work is of flowers. Any help would be greatly appreciated. The only thing I can tell you is that when signing his name the n in delongprie is backwards. There also appears to be no space between the de and longprie. It is one name, unless it is just close together-which is does not appear to be.

Hi;
It seems that there are a number of wildlife paintings by this artist but no information regarding the artist. Here's what little I did find.

You can compare signatures here.

This could be the answer as to why there is no information.

Default Delongprie Tiger Painting...

I also posess a painting by this artist Delongprie and it too is an oil painting of a tiger on the side of a snowy mountain. It has been with my family for quite some time. I now have it hanging on my home here in New Orleans, LA USA as I am a big LSU Tiger fan. The painting is actually on canvas that measures 60" inches wide by 48" inches tall. It's quite astonishing to see when you walk into my formal livingroom!!! It's been keep well but could use a profesional cleanning. It's well over twenty years old I am sure. Email me for a picture...

In 1977-1978, I bought two Delongprie signed oil paintings from a local department store in Montgomery, Al. There was a 40X40 painting of a Bengal tiger and a 48X60 painting of a Siberian tiger on a snowy background. The smaller was $80 and the larger was $125.

I was told by the salesman that they were "mass art" produced in Mexico. He explained that the artist/painter lined up 10 or so canvasses and copied a "master" painting. I would expect there are many copies of each painting.

Smile 3 elephants

I seen the signature. My picture was given to me and it is of 3 elephants. My signature on mine does not look like yours. This one. The lady who gave it to me said he was famous and he painted it for her while she was in Africa/ I seen a tiger one on ebay today and the guy was from Arkansas who had it. It was a lion. The signature looked like mine. Starting bid was 400$ This picture was painted in the 70's I hope we all have a rare artist and it comes to a head in a few years and is worth the big bucks.

Default Delongprie Tiger

We have a painting of a tiger on the mountain in the snow. It was given to up by some friends. From what we were told, it came from a furniture store in the Los Angles area. It was purchased in the early eighties. The painting is very large. From the posts here, and given where it was purchased, I would believe that these were mass produced. Having said that, I love this painting.
