Signature Details
The cobblestoned Rue Cortot in Montmartre was home for many well known artists throughout the years. The street is identified in this watercolor by a sign placed high on the building at the left.

The 1902 Second Exhibition at the Toledo Museum of Art included a watercolor painting titled, "A Corner of the Town." As this exhibition included several of Alten's French paintings, it is possible that this painting, Rue Cortot, Paris, was the painting shown. The exhibition is therefore noted here for possible reference.
