Does anyone have a clue as to what artist created these two prints? If so what is a ballpark as to value? I would appreciate any assistance no matter how minute. Thanks.

    The artist was Marie Laurencin (1883-1956) The title is "Les biches" as well as
    "Jeune femme aux animaux (étude pour le ballet Les Biches)". It dates to 1923.
    Diaghilev, les Ballets Russes, Marie Laurencin and Bronislava Nijinska were all part of this famous production of Poulenc's ballet in 1924. marie Laurencin designed the costumes for the ballet.
    The illustrated animals are 'les biches' - female deer.
    Hope this gets you started.

    Thank you so much vetraio50. I picked these up at a thrift shop in California about 20 years ago and since they had no name on them didn't know where to start looking for info until I came across collectorsweekly.com, last year. You have given me a running start by providing this info and a name to work with. I am most appreciative....
