HELP! several years ago I came into ownership of about 14 food photos by Nickolas Muray these are large photos that seem to be mounted on a 1950s style foam type board used by advertising agencies at that time. Most of them are in original cardboard presentation frames and are stamped on the back with Nickolas Muray & Associates with their address in midtown Manhattan. Some also have a stamp from the advertising agency as well.

It seems these would have been presented to clients/magazines as part of the advertising campaign.

Im wondering if these have any real value and how I might go about obtaining that information

I would think that they definitely have value. Nickolas Murray is quite a legend it seems. Are they dye-transfer prints? If you can tell, of course.

Maybe post some examples, or post this in another category that gets more traffic. I'm personally very curious to know more about them.

PM me if you'd like.

You might contact an appraiser who specializes in photography. One whom I've met and who seems very smart and knowledgeable is Lorraine Anne Davis--
