    These were another gift from the estate of my friend's father. The artist is Martin Silverman. They are from 1963 and all 8/75 or earlier prints. I have tried to find something online. Honestly, I don't know how to research something like this. If you have any ideas...please help.

      SILVERMAN, Martin (1950). Martin Silverman is a native New Yorker. He attended the High School of Music & Art, was awarded a scholarship to the Philadelphia College of Art and received a B.F.A. from that institution. He continued his printmaking studies at the Pratt Graphics Arts Center in Manhattan.

      Martin Silverman's work is represented in the permanent collections of the Boston Museum of Fine Arts, the Hudson River Museum, the New York Public Library Print Collection, Nassau Community College (Purchase Award) and the Museum of Fine Arts in Elath, Israel, as well as several corporate collections among them IBM.

He has illustrated several books including "Prayers from the Bible" (Golden Press), "For One Another"(Union of American Hebrew Congregations), "Recipes from America's Restored Villages" (Doubleday), and numerous magazines articles. His design for "Selected Poems, Chaim Nachman Bialik" (UAHC), was selected by the American Institute of Graphic Arts as one of the 50 best books of the year.

      Holy cow. That's an answer. Thanks so much. I can't wait to tell my mom tomorrow. She thought they were possibly done by a student or family member and even though I didn't know anything...I was still more correct than she was.

      Again, thanks.

      Just a quick one about the numbers at the bottom. The only one that is a date is 5/8/63, the other mark 8/75 is not a date. It refers to numbers in the print run. It tells you that only 75 of these prints were ever made, and the one you have is the eighth print of those 75.

      Very serious print collectors look for prints that are somewhere around the middle of the run. So if there were 30 for instance, collectors prefer to buy around #27, 28, 29, 31 and 32. Because those numbers tend to have the clearest and finest quality. which have past the numbers where the ink maybe too gloopy, and before the ink begins to fade in places.
