January 2013 update:

Thanks to ALL of you who have written by email to inquire about your Nora Debolt prints! I've heard
from folks all over the United States who have discovered their prints at thrift stores, estate sales and
hidden away in closets and attics and basements.


The original company that ran the prints has not responded to any inquiries regarding those prints. Others have made thatrequest and were not responded to, along with my own request-perhaps there is no one there that has any history or recordsthat far back. Perhaps I will keep trying to get their attention. The Kaplan company is no longer in existence for quite a few yearsnow and perhaps the records have been lost, I hope to find out.
Several very nice people have written to me asking about their prints by this wonderful artist. Her paintings have been an inspiration to me for several years. I have researched her for all of those years, have contacted many online reference lists of artists, also the Smithsonian, and the Library and Research Center of the National Museum of Women in the Arts, there are some 18,000 names listed there, but not Nora's. I have also visited 3 libraries and researched books listing hundreds of artists , also not there. What I CAN tell you about her is, that sometime in the late 1880's or early 1900, she went on holiday somewhere in the northeast around an area of beautiful lakes. There, she painted a series of approximately 10 paintings, many of which some of you may have prints, and some that are very rare. The company that runs those prints has not rerun them since around 1980's. From there, she disappears from history, A wonderful painter who expressed herself in beautiful colors and brush strokes. Perhaps, she went back to being a mother with children to care for, we will never know. In any case, I will continue to be inspired from those beautiful paintings that are left and carry on my own style, inspired by hers.

These prints are becoming more and more rare. For those of you who are wanting to know
the value of your prints..this is all the information I can give you:

The company that ran the prints is no longer in business...although there are some companies in other countries that ran them. The prints were discontinued as late as 1996.
They ran sets approximately every 5 years. You will not find reprints that I know of in any store, which means that any prints found will be from resellers, estate sales, garage sales and thrift stores.

These paintings were done in the early 1900's.
This alone makes your prints valuable. Ebay and other auction sites are a good place to
search. As of 1/1/11 large matted and framed Nora prints sell for anywhere from 60.00 on up
to 150.00, and I believe will continue to increase in value.

This is the most rare print. "waiting for my owner".

I purchase this print in the 90's at KMart in Canada as I really liked the colors. This was not shown in your post. Does it have any value?
