Answer
Dear Denis,

They sound like they are important paintings. I would contact the E.C.C.O.

E.C.C.O. is the European Confederation of Conservator-Restorers' Organisations.

E.C.C.O. seeks to develop and promote, on a practical, scientific and cultural level, the profession of Conservator-Restorer of Cultural Property.

E.C.C.O. represents, through their professional associations, more than 5.000 members throughout Europe from 16 countries within the European Union #EU# and the European Free Trade Association #EFTA#.

I hope this information is helpful.

Kind regards,
Dolly
