I am confused - are these prints mounted on drywall - or painted directly on drywall ? And are you taking them out or looking to hang them ?


If looking to remove, I would say a professional commercial art gallery or art conservator would be needed - an a LOT of bucks - I would guess $2000 minimum and possibly a lot more because I would say they should be stabilized in the wall (a backing put on them) before trying to remove them, and removal will involve cutting them out of the wall, not including repairing/painting the holes left in the wall by the removal.


I know I was involved in one about 8 by maybe 16-20 foot mural (italian restaurant moving to a new location and wanting to take their trademark hand-painted oil-on-plaster mural with them - cost over $15,000 and that was a couple of decades ago. Course, that is a LOT larger than you are talking about.


If you mean to hang them but they are not framed but are loose paintings, a gallery or framing studio would be my bet - and I would start by mounting them on a stable rigid substrate like luan plywood - so I would guess at least $500 and probably more like $1000 plus for the framing even if not real fancy frames. If already framed I would guess some hundreds of $, then some art galleries do this sort of work, as well as some Interior Decorators who actually do the decorating, not just design it. I don't think I would trust a Handyman with hanging them.


If you can't find a local company experienced in basically removing/framing plaster wall murals, try contacting local pulbic, private, or university museum curators for recommendations.
