I contacted the maker of Whistlers Mother with the Thompson, Winston Churchill with the Thompson and Humphrey Bogart with the Thompson. These are costly to produce. I am going to have him make me 10 of each. These are laminated and foam backed. The price will be 100 to 125 each. I paid 100 each for mine several years ago. I already have about half sold, I am only posting this here as I remember some interest.

As an artist, I was just curious if anyone still owned the copyrights to those.

I have no idea. A friend of mine made a bunch up about 10 years ago and I haven't seen any since. I would think they are probably public domain. The price will be the cost of production.

What your describing sounds like a place mat. If your source is able to make copies why can't he do them up as prints? I think prints on quality paper would be much nicer for framing.
