Hi Robin . are these all done by an artist named W. B Havens? If this is chalk it would smear or even a oil pastel would smear it look s like a water color. Take a Magnifying glass and tell me do you see brush strokes or chalk likes? Where is the signature? What is the measurement of piece #1,2,3,4 without the frame height x width? Good to hear from you don't worry about bonuses the question is here so you are fine. Do you have a picture of the signature? Thanks, AlanAlan C. Ransdell, ISA AM, AOA AM, CA41092.8368556366

Alan all the paintings are 12 W. by 16 H thanks robin
Robin, these are from the 50's and he is an unlisted artist I would pull the painting out and paint all of the frames gold on these too.
After using several of my resources that contain over 500,000 artists to look into your inquiry, I was able to find that the piece you have here is by what is known an unlisted artist. An unlisted artist is usually an unknown local artist or an aspiring artist. Given the age of the piece, I have to assume the artist falls under the first category.
They were painted what is called the Cubism style the art movement was created by Picasso in the 50's as Modern style art. At auction I would estimate them at $75 - $150 a piece.
I hope this answers your question! If you would like any additional information or have more questions please don’t hesitate to ask!
