Can you give me the appraisal as if they are authentic? I am looking for a range since they have not been sold on the open market and the Kohler Foundation has given 16million dollars to preserve his art and home place.

I do not participate in the live phone call service.

Please do add the photos of the painting so that I can authenticate what you have, thanks!

These are authentic pieces by Eddie Owens Martin (1908-1986).

The landscapes have a current value of $1000 to $1500 each.

The piece with three women at a table has a value of $2000 and the

image with all of the faces has a value of $2000 to $2500.

This is all based on recent sales of his work.
