Answer Dear Amy,
The prints you have were printed and distributed through a series of companies associated with Park West Gallery. Fine Art Sales, Inc. is a Miami based company associated with Park West. A seriolithograph is a name Park West has given to their printing method. Your prints are not original pieces of art. I have seen your particular Krasnyansky print Yellow Sunset starting at $65 and getting no offers. Summer Enchantment is probably in the same price range. You can do a search on eBay as there are dozens of this artists prints being offered.
There is a lot of controversy on art by this organization of companies. I would stay away from them in the future. I hope this information is helpful.
I can assist with identification, acquisition, sell representation, and care of fine art prints and original paintings. Some of my artist specialties include Henri Toulouse Lautrec, California Artists, and the Modern Masters. I can also assist with information on getting professional appraisals and authentication.
