179 Lot 179: Philip Leslie Hale oil on canvas, La Donna Philip Leslie Hale oil on canvas, La Donna Lot 179: Philip Leslie Hale oil on canvas, La Donna

Philip Leslie Hale (Massachusetts, 1865-1931), “La Donna” (“Mi Velata”), oil on canvas painting depicting a young woman in white dress with enigmatic expression, looking out from behind a “veil” of black lace curtains. Housed in a handcarved and painted wooden frame. 39_H x 25_W sight, 45_H x 31_W framed. Provenance – the estate of Margaret Wemyss Connor, Nashville, TN; Sotheby’s December 1st, 1998 sale, lot 00172; private collection; Vose Galleries, Boston; the artist (detailed notes available on request). Biography: A member of the Boston School of painters, Philip Leslie Hale’s reputation as an artist was somewhat overshadowed during his lifetime by his teaching and writing. As a young man he studied painting at the Boston Museum School with Edmund Tarbell (who remained an indelible influence), privately with William Merritt Chase, and at the Art Students League in New York with J. Alden Weir. He furthered his art education in Europe, studying in Paris at the Academie Julien and the Ecole des Beaux Arts, and visiting the major museums of Europe, where he was said to be influenced by the French Impressionists Sisley and Pissarro and by Vermeer. He lived in Giverny for a time and was acquainted with Claude Monet. After studying abroad for over a decade, he returned to America and was given a one man show. Although he painted a variety of subjects over the years, he is best recognized for his decorative paintings of the female figure and his landscapes. In 1902 he married respected fellow artist Lillian Westcott Hale. Philip Hale went on to build a reputation as an instructor, critic and writer, teaching at the Boston Museum School and the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts, and authoring several books (including a study on Vermeer in 1913). A retrospective of his work at Vose Galleries of Boston in 1966 helped reignite interest in his paintings. Source: Michael David Zellman, “300 Years of American Art,” Vose Galleries, Pierce Galleries. Condition: Relined. Blacklight reveals scattered inpainting, particularly on subject’s facial area including on forehead, under one eye and in crevice of nose, possibly on lips as well. [See more photos →]

Civil War letter archive of Private Frank P. Longstreet, 137th Regiment , Pennsylvania Volunteer Infantry, Company A, friend of J. J Dewey. Includes six letters from 1862 – 1865. Of the group, the September 27, 1862 Sharpsburg, Maryland (Antietam) letter is the most poignant and graphic in the description of the carnage and loss of life: "Our Brigade was in the late great battle of Sharpsburg (Antietam)…..We arrived on the battlefield a week ago yesterday and the Regt worked all day Saturday and Sunday burying the dead. The scene was revolting to the extreme. The dead in the field where we worked were piked up by the hundreds all over the field. Some with their heads shot entirely off and some with their head partially off. The scenes begs description. They had lain there three or four days and so sultry had been the atmosphere that decomposition had been making rapid progress. All extremities(?sp) had swollen beyond point of possible recognition. Features had become one dark mass of putridity and corruption. Forms once active vigorous and manly were distended like bladders. Some of their heads even dropped off while our men were burying them to throw them into the pits dug for them…" Excerpt from May 25th, 1862 letter – "And I hope that those ungrateful sons who have risen up and are endeavoring to destroy the best government on which the sun ever shone will soon be compelled to lay down their arms and return to their allegiance.." Excerpt from Camp near Belle Plain, VA Feb. 4th, 1863 – (letter references back to his Regiment being encamped around Washington D.C.). Referencing the location near Fredricksburg,"Oh, such has of mud man or mule has never before waded through in some places our wagons stuck but deep, we had to fetch in and pry them up and double team out…I was much interested with you account of Fitch exploits and adventures in the late Indian war which has been raging upon the frontier of Minnesota…" Excerpt from Camp near Bell Plain, VA April 23rd, 1863 letter – "The bad weather which we have been having in this quarter for the last three months has prevented the army from doing anything. The weather is becoming more settled and it is quite probable that the army will move in a few days in the direction of Fredricksburg, the grand center of attention at present. Gen Hooker means I think to let the rebels on the other side of the Rappahannock know and feel that this army is not to be bamboseled by them any longer. The soldiers have unbounded confidence in the ability of Gen. Joe Hooker to command them and lead them on to victory.." Excerpt from Wilkes Barre Aug. 24th, 1863 letter – "I came out of the military service unscathed and unharmed by the missels of the enemy. The last battle in which our regt was at Chancellerville VA and left the Rasfasahanneck for Harrisburg…" Excerpt from Wilkes Barre Jany 28th 1865 letter – "In respecting nobly as you did to your country's call you acted the part of a hero as well as that of a true and loyal american." Most correspondence is written to fellow soldier, J.J. Dewey. Last remaining item – Philologian Society broadside commemorating the birth of Abraham Lincoln, Feb. 12th, 1866 (Republican Print, Red Wing).

140 Lot 140: Southern Portrait Miniature, poss. James K. Polk Southern Portrait Miniature, poss. James K. Polk Lot 140: Southern Portrait Miniature, poss. James K. Polk

Miniature portrait, possibly an early depiction of James K. Polk, attributed to Charles Burton. Charcoal on paper, bust-length profile of a man with receding hairline in formal attire, seated in a “fancy” painted chair. Antique, but possibly not original giltwood molded frame and paper mat. 4-1/4″ x 3-1/8″ sight, 8 x 7″ framed. Circa 1820. Note en verso states that this portrait was purchased from the Collier-Crichlow estate auction in Murfreesboro, TN in 1985. A portrait of Andrew Jackson was also listed in that auction. This portrait was sold again in 1993 at the auction of the Absalom Scales home in Eagleville, where it was listed as “a period miniature sketch of Pres. James K. Polk in a gold leaf frame” (a poster from that auction is included with this lot). The portrait bears a strong resemblance to some twenty five other charcoal miniature portraits cataloged by the Museum of Early Southern Decorative Arts, nearly all of which have the identical chair depicted and are attributed to Burton. Charles Burton is known to have produced portraits of sitters in North Carolina, New York City, Baltimore, and Jefferson County, Virginia from about 1819-1842. Few early profile portraits of Polk exist for comparison. The future president was born in North Carolina in 1795 and returned there for school from 1816-1818 and periodically throughout his life. He died in 1849. Condition: Light toning, mat and frame possibly not original. [See more photos →]

Double matted and framed under glass in a molded silvered frame. 9-1/4″ x 11-1/2″ sight, 15″ x 17″ framed. Provenance: a Nashville, Tennessee estate.

He served in the Army in 1944 and went on to study art briefly at the Mienzinger Art School in Detroit. He returned to Nashville to practice commercial art, but by the mid-1950s had decided to pursue his own art career. Whimsical animals and fantastical, often grotesque creatures were a recurring theme of his work. Wildner met with critical and commercial success after a 1962 exhibit of his art (at what is now known as Cheekwood). However, the death of his parents and collapse of his marriage in the 1970s led him to become reclusive in the last two decades of his life.

351 Lot 351: Jack Kershaw, abstract oil on board Jack Kershaw, abstract oil on board Lot 351: Jack Kershaw, abstract oil on board

John Karl "Jack" Kershaw (Tennessee, 1913-2010) abstract oil on board, unsigned. Housed in a painted wooden frame. Sight – 39 1/2" H x 29 1/2" W. Framed – 45 1/2" H x 35 1/2" W. Provenance: Estate of Jack Kershaw. Biography: Jack Kershaw studied art at Vanderbilt University and in the 1920s became associated with a group of intellectuals who called themselves The Fugitive Poets. In the 1930s, he worked as Federal director of the Tennessee Art Project (a job in which he worked as one of famed sculptor William EdmondsonÕs supervisors). He also served as an art consultant for The Kenyon Review and for Nashville Mayor Ben West, and was a member of the first Tennessee Arts Commission. His work prior to 1950 consisted mostly of portraits (both paintings and sculptures), and paintings of landscapes and interiors. In 1953, as Chairman of the Nashville Committee for the Coordination of the Arts, Kershaw was instrumental in developing the lower level of the Nashville Parthenon for use as a permanent art gallery. Around this time he and his wife, the former Mary Noel, decided to attend law school; he was admitted to the bar in the 1960s. However, he continued to paint, sculpt and draw, becoming more interested in abstract works.For much of his career, Kershaw kept records of what he made and who bought it; purchasers of his art from 1938-1980 included recording artists Dinah Shore, and Grace Creswell, Penn Warren, Tupper Saussy, The City of Nashville, and Prince Alexander of Hohenzollern (who commissioned a portrait). Kershaw exhibited at the Holbrook Museum (University of Georgia at Athens, with Phillip Perkins); University of Connecticut (one man exhibition); the University of Kentucky; Yale University; University of Tennessee (one man exhibition); Peabody College; the University of Chicago; Carlton College in Minnesota; Bridgewater College in Virginia; The Centennial Club of Nashville; the Ray Jordon Gallery; Cohen Memorial and Art Investments Gallery in Nashville; and Avanti Gallery and Caravan House in New York City among others. Kershaw designed the 1951 Christmas Card for WSM-Radio, painted murals for the Veterans Club of Nashville in 1953, and in 1974 published ChristÕs Mass, a series of religious themed drawings and verses. His later paintings took an increasingly surreal tone and focused heavily on historical elements; the little girl in this painting appeared in a series of paintings mourning the loss of the Old South. The Civil War provided frequent subject material, most notably the 25-foot title sculpture for the privately owned Nathan Bedford Forrest Memorial Park in Nashville. Kershaw was also a political figure. He was one of the attorneys representing James Earl Ray, who confessed to killing Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. but then recanted and spend the rest of his life trying unsuccessfully to obtain a jury trial. Kershaw also co-founded the League of the South. Condition: Abrasions and paint loss to frame. Varnish drip to upper left of painting with paint loss and abrasions to lower right.

350 Lot 350: Jack Kershaw o/c, Girl Amid Ruins Jack Kershaw o/c, Girl Amid Ruins Lot 350: Jack Kershaw o/c, Girl Amid Ruins

John Karl "Jack" Kershaw (Tennessee, 1913-2010) oil on canvas painting, surrealist scene depicting a young girl running amidst the columns of a Southern mansion in ruins, beneath a canopy of Spanish moss covered trees. Signed lower right "Kershaw". 34" H x 27 1/4" W. Unframed. Provenance: Estate of Jack Kershaw. Biography: Jack Kershaw studied art at Vanderbilt University and in the 1920s became associated with a group of intellectuals who called themselves The Fugitive Poets. In the 1930s, he worked as Federal director of the Tennessee Art Project (a job in which he worked as one of famed sculptor William EdmondsonÕs supervisors). He also served as an art consultant for The Kenyon Review and for Nashville Mayor Ben West, and was a member of the first Tennessee Arts Commission. His work prior to 1950 consisted mostly of portraits (both paintings and sculptures), and paintings of landscapes and interiors. In 1953, as Chairman of the Nashville Committee for the Coordination of the Arts, Kershaw was instrumental in developing the lower level of the Nashville Parthenon for use as a permanent art gallery. Around this time he and his wife, the former Mary Noel, decided to attend law school; he was admitted to the bar in the 1960s. However, he continued to paint, sculpt and draw, becoming more interested in abstract works.For much of his career, Kershaw kept records of what he made and who bought it; purchasers of his art from 1938-1980 included recording artists Dinah Shore, and Grace Creswell, Penn Warren, Tupper Saussy, The City of Nashville, and Prince Alexander of Hohenzollern (who commissioned a portrait). Kershaw exhibited at the Holbrook Museum (University of Georgia at Athens, with Phillip Perkins); University of Connecticut (one man exhibition); the University of Kentucky; Yale University; University of Tennessee (one man exhibition); Peabody College; the University of Chicago; Carlton College in Minnesota; Bridgewater College in Virginia; The Centennial Club of Nashville; the Ray Jordon Gallery; Cohen Memorial and Art Investments Gallery in Nashville; and Avanti Gallery and Caravan House in New York City among others. Kershaw designed the 1951 Christmas Card for WSM-Radio, painted murals for the Veterans Club of Nashville in 1953, and in 1974 published ChristÕs Mass, a series of religious themed drawings and verses. His later paintings took an increasingly surreal tone and focused heavily on historical elements; the little girl in this painting appeared in a series of paintings mourning the loss of the Old South. The Civil War provided frequent subject material, most notably the 25-foot title sculpture for the privately owned Nathan Bedford Forrest Memorial Park in Nashville. Kershaw was also a political figure. He was one of the attorneys representing James Earl Ray, who confessed to killing Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. but then recanted and spend the rest of his life trying unsuccessfully to obtain a jury trial. Kershaw also co-founded the League of the South. Condition: Canvas is in a fragile state. Overall grime with some rubbling to edges. [See more photos →]
