Hi Nora it's Maria again sorry for the delay its been crazy around here trying to organize everything but I have a set of four paintings they go together at least that's how my mom had them then I have another one hope u can see them good. Hopefully I'll get something out of one of these thanks for ur time :) can I send them to u
Customer: replied 10 months ago.
Here they are. Let me know if u need anymore information thank u again for ur time
Expert:  Nora replied 10 months ago.

Hi Maria,

Thank you for the image here, I see one of the set of 4 prints. Can you please let me know the approximate size and send clear, in-focus close-ups of the signature on each. I do see they are the same signature, but seeing them all will help decipher the name. Also, can you check the backside for any clues and send a photo of the backside of one (do not remove from frames).

Before my mom died she had said there's a few Argentine paintings worth a lot here do u know where I could get those looked at?
Expert:  Nora replied 10 months ago.

Hi,

There are two images attached here, one of the backside of one and one of the signature. can you please include a clear, in-focus close-up of the signature on each print to help me try to decipher the name.

~Nora

Customer: replied 10 months ago.
It's the same painting of the back and front close up of the signature. It's one of the four of the set. Do u need a close up of the back sorry this is confusing to me :/
Expert:  Nora replied 10 months ago.

Hi,

Can you please send a clear, in-focus photo of just the signature on the front of each picture. I do know they are all the same artist's signature, but if I see all 4 of them I may be able to decipher the name.

Customer: replied 10 months ago.
