Hi Kirkielurkie,

Does your question mean you have 20 x 24 paintings and your planning
to sell these?


Does it mean you're planning to buy 20 x 24 paintings of the artists
so you want to know the price?

Would you take sources that can provide you with an idea or give you
actual valuation for the paintings as an answer?

found, you can expect big money here. To give you an idea, one
painting by Edouard Cortez was sold for $46,000.00. Below is the link
