Hi Christina, there is a Stanley Spencer (1891 - 1959) who made some mother and child sketches in pencil, which are abstract to say the least http://www.mutualart.com/Artwork/A-mother-and-child-in-a-garden---a-sketc/91B8B4
. There is Eric Spencer Macky (1880 - 1958) who has made several mother and child graphite sketches pictured here http://search3.famsf.org:8080/view.shtml?record=18921
. I will continue to look for other Spencer mother and child works, and will get back to you if I find something that might help you.
For a more concrete answer, I recommend contacting Christies http://christies.com/
or Sothebys http://www.sothebys.com/
auction houses. You can also take it to a Bonham's Valuation Day if there is one near where you live http://www.bonhams.com/cgi-bin/public.sh/pubweb/publicSite.r?sContinent=EUR&scre
Best of luck to you, Christina, and have a wonderful day!
