Jean Dufy (French, 1888–1964) (Attributed based on signature)

Landscape

Watercolor on paper

Signed l.r. "Jean Dufy" as well on back in graphite.

I am attributing this work to Jean Dufy, but it may be another artist with the same name?  It is coming from a wealthy local estate where the man collected fine art and was an antiques dealer at one time and later owned several newspapers.  He owned many very valuable works of art, so this one does have potential, however this is nothing like most of the examples I have seen of Dufy's work.   The signature is very close, but perhaps it is just a coincidence with another artist?  If the signature was intended to deceive, why not paint more in the style of Dufy?  The frame is later.  

Condition:  Overall good.  Some mat burn to the actual painting below the new mat.  Possibly slightly faded.   General wear to the frame.  Framed under glass, first photos show it without glass for minimal reflection.

Measurements:
9 1/4" H x 13 1/4" W Sight line
16 1/2" H x 20 1/4" W Frame
