Marten.....Elliot H. Marten painted a lot of this kind of landscapes

I don't think it is Elliot Marten's work - he had a very distinctive watercolour style, and his signature looked quite different to this.

I tend to agree with Mike, the style doesn't seem right for Elliot Marten. But I do like the picture, I have an unsigned miniature in similar style bought from a charity shop. However, I fear the value may not be high. The one on the Polish site seems to be selling at around 15 Euros  :-\

If you scroll down on this page (already given above): https://www.olx.pl/oferta/obraz-z-pejzazem-CID628-IDlUnzc.html there's a picture showing a label on the back of the one that's for sale in Poland, where they've read the artist's name as Wall.

Wall doesn't really sound like a Polish name to me, although with its Germanic origins it could no doubt occur in any English/Dutch/German speaking country. Also in neighbouring countries - Germany once included regions that have been ceded to France and Poland.

However, where a print is now may tell us very little about where the original was painted, or by whom.
Researching among others:
Bartle, Bilton, Campbell, Craven, Emmott, Harcourt, Hirst, Kellet(t), Kennedy,
Meaburn, Mennile/Meynell, Metcalf(e), Palliser, Robinson, Rutter, Shipley, Stow, Wilkinson

It might be worth an email to the National Museum in Warsaw.
