I have two paintings signed by Salvador Dali I am in the process in having them authenticated as legit or copies. To possibly save some resources I would like to do background on the paintings, but I am unable to find any information, any suggestions?

Recently I found these two paintings that belong to an older family member. They are both signed by “Salvador Dali” and have the representation of his surrealism work. I know enough about Dali and art to know that there have been many fakes produced for this artist. However, these paintings are signed and dated, have physical texture, and they are on canvas, I would believe to be hard to reproduce in a copy.
I am unable to read the date as the frame covers most of it, because I am not an expert I do not feel comfortable removing the frame.
Both paintings are also signed “Orican”, I have tried searching for these word but was unable to find any reference or information.
Mostly the likeness of the paintings is all I have to search on.
Before I spend the time and resources to have it shipped to a curator and/or authenticator I would like to do some preliminary research to see if I can’t find more information.
If anyone has any suggestions of sites, easily accessible reading material, or even has knowledge, I would greatly appreciate it!
