Help me identify this series of paintings

I found a series of paintings today ( prints, actually) that depict the progression of a city through time. On the back of one print, there is a note that states "1956".... no artist signature.
The painting series starts with a house in a field, with hills in the background. The house gets bulldozed down, roads are built, buildings are erected, torn down, and eventually a freeway runs right through where the house once stood.
There is a mixture of languages in the paintings on the street signs and what have you - german, japanese, english, etc....
I don't think I have all the images, but I would like to find out where I could. Only, I don't know the first thing about the painting - or the artist. Anyone familiar with this work?
