I can provide an estimate of value based on comparables, though not any information on the artist M. Menotti.
I can opt-out and open your question again to all the experts at no additional fee. Opening the question is not a guarantee that you will receive a response.
Please let me know how you would like to proceed.

Hi There~
Thank you for your patience.
This is a serigraph, or silkscreen, signed and titled limited edition print from the 2nd half of the 20th century.
The artist is M. Menotti, of whom there is scant biographical information available.
The print is one of 42 copies made by hand and numbered 11 of 42.
The title is “Germantown 1850” which is the topic of the subject of the serigraph print, being the design of a Navajo “germantown” pattern rug that would have been made around 1850.
Here is a link to one Menotti print, with a Navajo rug theme that is available for sale from Japan for approximately $230:
The suggested insurance or replacement value for your signed limited edition print measuring 9” x 10” without frame is $325.
