Hi Mark,

There is not yet the technology or set-up for scanning an deciphering signatures and that is most especially because the vast majority of artwork in existence was done by unlisted or unknown artists. What you have ar actually hand colored etchings or prints and these were generally sold as tourist pieces by sidewalk or 'starving' artists. Depending on the size, these can sell for a highs of $20 - $45 each.
