Thanks for the inquiry! Although the artist M. DeGraff does not show up in databases of known artists, his work has sold at auction before. In 2008, a work described as, "M. DE GRAFF PASTEL ON PAPER (American, 19th/20th century) Winter landscape with cottage 24 in. by 9 3/4 in. Signed M. De Graff l.r. In original wood and gesso frame" sold for $130 at an Oregon auction, which is consistent with what one would expect a modest landscape of the period to sell for. A current market value for a similar pastel on paper would be $150 to $200 assuming that it is framed and "ready to hang".
