I puchased thse two paintings today. They represent two soldiers of the French foreign Legion. One is dated 1955. Considering these guys look to be in their forties, they are most likely professionnals who enlisted before WW2. They probably fought during WW2 and if not, they cerainly fought in Indochina. The uniforms are desert ones , so possibly North Africa or Djibouti. The painter has possibly depicted them via a picture, because it was apparently painted in Paris by a painter called Ludequin N .
