PS, tomorrow I can scan them and email them to you, if that would help, my scanner at home is too small, they are 12 x 17, they are in excellent shape accept for the yellowing from being stored.  

Answer
Hard to say without examining them in person.  The text you provided is similar to other "prints" that have been published.

Have you taken them to a framer or art dealer for an opinion?

I do see the name in one of my published artists guides, but little info is there. That tells me, with research you can find more detailed info on the artist and works. It might be a good idea to search for books about the artist as well.

Expertise

I can answer questions about Salvador Dali. While I cannot do FREE APPRAISALS, I might be able to help you sell your works. I can also help with Chagall, Miro, Picasso and other 20th Century Masters.

Questions about a type of art or medium can be answered with one response in most cases. Technical issues are easier to deal with than specifics about an artist. If you need help finding values or history on an artist, it will probably involve research that can sometimes take hours to complete. If you have more than one image to send, I will give you an alternate email address as this system cannot handle multiple images.
