I am wondering what the estimated worth of these watercolour paintings from the 1880's are. Dunk is not really well-known but was a pupil of Thomas Eakins.

John, I was not able to find out about his value. I did find some ancestry info on him. There might be more of an interest from his relatives rather than selling these on the open market. If you were to place these at an auction, with no comparable to justify a certain price, I would say they would be lotted and sell for $300-$400.
