The back is irrelevant, what you have is a very nice find: four leaves from what was once an album of 8 or more leaves, painted around the year 1900 +/-. There was probably another framed group of four that became separated from this one at some point in time.

As for the artist, this style unfortunately was pretty conventional at that time, so it will take a bit of sleuthing to determine the artist from brushwork alone (many albums were signed only on their last leaf, not included here). But you got a bargain, as these are of good quality in good condition.
