Fine Art/Art Prints

Question
I bought a house filled with art prints, mostly from the 40's and 50's I think, purchased at Museums.  I am trying to sell these but it is hard to know what they are worth.  One is a folio of Bonnard Published by Albert Carman for The Museum of Modern Art in New York in 1948.  It contains six prints "Lithograph printed in black, or 4 or 5 colours.

I also have a set of Japanese Color Prints, also from the Met - no date but an introduction by Alan Priest and there are ten prints in this set.

Are they of any value and can you suggest where best to try to sell them?

Thanks

Answer
Sounds like you have museum posters?  If they are not signed, they are collectalbes and not investment art.  You are in a niche with this type of thing and have to find collectors that have interest.
Of course I'm not there to examine them, so I'm just guessing.

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.
