Expert:  Nora replied 8 months ago.

Hi,

I have not found a match to a listed artist by the last name Morant who fits the time frame of having been in Spain in 1965. I will opt out and open your question to all the experts here. If someone does know the answer, they will respond to you here. If you do not receive a definitive answer on the artist, let me know and I can provide an estimate of value based on comparables for you.

Here you are the picture of the front and signed of the back
Customer: replied 8 months ago.
We have over 20 paintings of different artist
Expert:  Tim in Antiques replied 8 months ago.

Thank you for the pictures of the Pons. I will start looking for this artist.

I normally do no more than 2 per question.

Since you have 20 different paintings would you be willing to do theses as ten separate questions?

Expert:  Tim in Antiques replied 8 months ago.

Sharon, I have checked through several major art data bases. So far the two works are by unlisted artists. This means that their work has not gone to auction and are recorded in the sales histories.

Did you Uncle travel to Spain and Europe? If so they could be by street artists in the areas he traveled.

In an auction setting the painting on canvas by Morant has an estimated value of $300.00 to $600.00.

The work by Pons appears to be a lithograph and has a value range of $50.00 to $75.00.
