Fine Art/Question

Question
I have two black and whites that have the name Aime Dallamagne on the back. They look to be pretty old as the paper backing is about to fall apart. The label on the back of one reads as follows:
Eau-Forte Originale de Aime Dallemagne, Printre-graveur
(hors-concours, medaille d honncut et member du salon des artistes francais. I can find very little about him online, which probably answers my question as to value. Help please

Answer
Webb--you're probably right as to value.  However, you have an original aquatint [a form of intaglio/etching] and if you like them, that's what counts.  Alan Klevit.

Expertise

I can provide sound advice on buying, collecting & understanding fine art, especially original works by 20th century masters and leading contemporary artists. I can also explain techniques used to create original works and offer tips on how to tell whether or not a piece is an original work of art.

Experience

I have been active in the art world for twenty-seven years. I owned and operated four galleries and a wholesale showroom on both coasts. We specialized in original works by 20th century masters and emerging artists. I have been an art consultant, artist's representative, lecturer, auctioneer, and curator. I had a radio show for two years, "Today's Art World with Alan Klevit" [Washington, D.C.]; hosted two television shows on the arts for six years [Los Angeles Area]; have written for numerous local papers and international art magazines; and currently write a syndicated column, "The Art Beat." I conduct art auctions for charities throughout the United States, and am a frequent speaker/auctioneer on upscale cruise ships, and at civic organizations and local television shows.
