Hi,

How many of these do you have in total and what is the general size of each. In addition, please send a clear in-focus close-up of just the signature at the lower right corner (lower left simply states original print and center is the title of the location of each. The artist signature is the lower right.

Hi,

My apologies, I thought I sent you the answer some time ago, but it is not showing here.

The signature on your print is H. Leisch, who was from Germany or Austria and whose work is generally prints on silk.

There are quite a number of this on the market, however very scant information on the artist. On average they sell for $20 - $50 each.

Here are links for you to silk prints with the H. Leisch signature that have sold in the past and their sale prices:
