Oops. It autocorrected. You should also see in the pictures...they are "Klein" works... (different spelling)

What size is your piece (in inches) not including the frame and mat? Please do not remove from the frame.

Both are @ 10x13.

Medard P. Klein was active/lived in Illinois, Wisconsin. Medard Klein is known for non objective paintings and graphics.

The artist Medard P Klein signed his name exactly like the artist "Klein" that did your pieces.

While these pieces are not his in predominate style, he did a few like these.

See the following image of one.

When assessing an artist's work, appraisers must look at completed sales of works by the same artist. Art gallery sales prices are private.

We must then go to auction sales prices which are public. When using comparable work by the same artist, medium, subject matter and size are factors to be considered.
Appraisers most often use price per square inch of previously sold comparable works by the same artist as a measure of value.

Using this widely accepted method of assessment, I determined an ESTIMATED AUCTION VALUE of $350-450 for each of your pieces.

As for retail value, I have seen art sell for 4 to 10 times auction values depending on the tastes of the art gallery owner as well as location of the gallery.

In general, a private seller to a dealer or via consignment can expect 30-60% of estimated retail value.

Insurance replacement values are usually about 20% more than retail values.

If you wish to sell, these are my suggestions -

The internet has your widest pool of buyers. To sell close to estimated retail try the following -

Try ads on sites such as

https://www.artbrokerage.com/help/selling-art

http://www.rubylane.com/art

http://www.askart.com/Ads_Individual.aspx

https://www.artnet.com/auctions/all-artworks/?utm_campaign=bannerad&utm_source=080514auctionsevergreen&utm_medium=link

http://www.artvalue.com

http://www.artprice.com/marketplace/sell-an-artwork

Some like Etsy.com where you can set up your store for free and the selling fees are small - 20 cents to list an item plus 3.5% of the final price.

Or list with no fees whatsoever:
