I received from stellou for French Text. This is a famous quote from Paul Feval's novel Le Bossu
It reads "Si tu ne viens pas à Lagardère, Lagardère ira à toi!" or in translation "If you don't come to Largardère, Lagardère will come to you!" which is said by the main character (Largardere) to his nemesis.
It is a lovely watercolor!
Once again, sorry for my crappy cellphone pic...where is my new camera!?!?
