Answer
Hello Terri,

While I am unfamiliar with Maurice Utrillo's original prints, I am familiar with Renoir and Monet's original prints. Based on the information above, it sounds like your works by Renoir and Monet are printed reproductions or copies created after the unique original paintings.  Reproductions such as these do not have any collectible value and are considered decorative works. I am not too familiar with the values of something like this, but perhaps I can recommend browsing ebay, where the values appear to range anywhere from $40 - $300.  A nicer frame and presentation may increase the value.  

For examples of original prints by Renoir and Monet, please reference the below links:

I am sorry to not bear better news but hope that this information can be of some assistance.

Best,
