I need help finding out if these are prints or an artist actually drew these. They are unusual. The name in the bottom right corner says Langston. It looks like its on wood with laminate over it.
Any help would be greatly appreciated...

Thank you so much!

    I can't tell from the quality of your photos if they are actual artwork that has been laminated, or prints. If you look very very closely at the artwork, see if you can see tiny dots making up the colors of the art. If so, then it's a print.

    Generally, people don't laminate original artwork. But you just never know.

    Hi Stefdesign,
    There are no dots on the picture at all. I know they are pretty old, my dad gave them to me and didnt know much about them other than he had them for years.
    My husband is saying its not a laminate finish, but a lacquer or a varnish. I really have nothing else to go on other then the name Langston in pencil..
    Thank you for the quick response..I appreciate it..

    It could be a lithograph, or an original piece of artwork. It's just too hard to tell from your photos. The style of the artwork to me, looks fairly contemporary, maybe from the 70s, and that's also when decoupage was popular. The plaques themselves look like they are from that era.
