Previously exhibited at the Knoxville Museum of Art and the Dulin Art Gallery (Knoxville’s predecessor to the Knoxville Museum of Art). Biography (Courtesy David Michael Zellman, 300 Years of American Art, Peter Falk “Who Was Who in American Art” and Askart: The Artists’ Bluebook): A native Pennsylvanian, William Sonntag Sr. was a landscape painter associated with the Hudson River School. He is best remembered for his romantic depictions of the American wilderness and “idealized visions of classical Italian ruins” that “reflect the influence of the eighteenth-century neoclassical tradition of English literature and painting” (Zellman, 195). At some point in the 1840s, he moved to Cincinnati where it is thought he studied at the Cincinnati Academy of Fine Arts under Godfrey Frankenstein. From the early 1840s to the mid 1850s, he had a studio in Cincinnati and made numerous painting trips in the Ohio River Valley and into the mountains of West Virginia and Kentucky. His style of grandeur, sweeping vistas, and dramatic renderings was much influenced by Thomas Cole. In Cincinnati, his store-front gallery exhibition got the attention of a Baltimore and Ohio Railroad official who commissioned Sonntag to paint a series of landscapes along the B & O railroad route. Those works were positively received at the Western Art Union shows and helped advance his career. In 1853, Sonntag took his first trip to Europe, and returned in 1855 for a year’s study in Florence, Italy. The latter part of his career, he lived in New York. He created panoramas with John C. Wolfe depicting Milton’s Paradise Lost and Paradise Regained, and he also traveled with Arthur Tait painting Catskill landscapes. In 1861, he became an associate member of the National Academy of Design and exhibited his work regularly there for the next 40 years until his death. Condition: Conserved and canvas laid on aluminum board in 1974 by Cumberland Art Conservation. Some minor inpainting noted under black light. Rubbing noted to perimeter of canvas. Losses to gilt carved frame. Overall light cracquelure. [See more photos →]

Original large, deep and elaborate giltwood and composition frame with swept edges, carved shells and scrolls at corners and centers interspersed with carved flowers, and an inner shell and scroll border.

Provenance: Originally owned by gilded age industrialist John Warne Gates, also known as “Bet-A-Million Gates,” who made millions selling barbed wire and was a founder of the Texas company that would later become known as Texaco. Upon Gates’ death, the painting was inherited by his only son Charles Gilbert Gates. When Charles Gates died at the age of 37 while on a Western big game hunting trip, the painting passed to his young widow, Florence Hopwood Gates Judd, and has descended in her family to the present consignor. The painting was exhibited at The Minneapolis Institute of Arts in 1915 (see The Bulletin of the Minneapolis Institute of Arts, May 1915). Biography: (Courtesy Askart: The Artists’ Bluebook): Norweigan-born Frits Thaulow (alternate spelling: Fritz Thaulow ) was a brother in law of Paul Gaugin, cousin to Edvard Munch, and a close friend of Claude Monet. He studied at the Academy of Fine Arts in Copenhagen before moving to Paris in the 1870s, where his paintings, particularly those involving complex reflections of water, were well received. Upon his return in the 1880s he was acclaimed as Oslo’s foremost painter. He also founded the progressive Artists’ Union and served as its president. It was Thaulow who encouraged Monet to travel with him to Norway to paint snow scenes in 1895. Thaulow himself traveled throughout Europe in pursuit of subject matter, which owed more to French Realism than Impressionism. Condition: Light 2″ scratch in lower left quadrant in water. About a dozen miniscule (pinpoint sized) scattered areas of paint loss, mainly to lower half (possibly white paint splatters). Scattered all over light craquelure.

212 Lot 212: John Curry O/C, Wisconsin Still Life John Curry O/C, Wisconsin Still Life Lot 212: John Curry O/C, Wisconsin Still Life

John Steuart Curry (American, 1897-1946) oil and tempera on canvas, "Wisconsin Still Life," depicting two dead pheasants with a shotgun propped against a tree. Titled, signed "John Steuart Curry" and dated "1940" lower left. Sight – 44" H x 29" W. Gilt wood frame – 48 3/4" H x 33 5/8" W. Shown in the Annual Exhibition of American Paintings and Sculpture from November 27 thru January 8, 1941 at the Whitney Museum of American Art; illustrated and discussed in the book "John Steuart Curry: Inventing The Middle West" by Patricia Junker, Page 86, figure 7. Junker writes that this painting "exists largely as a demonstration of painterly sumptuousness in the tradition of late nineteenth French still-life painting, most notably the canvases of Pierre Auguste Renoir. Even here [Curry] remained dependent on his subject, choosing the colorful plumage of two dead pheasants as justification for departing from his usual greens and browns….It is ironic, considering the profoundly serious, socially oriented nature of Curry's creative ambitions, that it would be his simpler and less thematically ambitious paintings, such as Spring Shower, Wisconsin Still Life, and Wisconsin Landscape, that are now leading the way toward a more sympathetic reappraisal of his qualities and importance." (p. 85). Born in Kansas, John Steuart Curry became the youngest member of the famed "Benton-wood-Curry" trio of regional painters of the early 20th century American Scene Movement. He studied at the Art Institutes of Kansas City and Chicago and for a year(1927) in Europe at the Academy Julian. When Curry returned to New York in 1928 he produced his work "Baptism in Kansas," which launched his career as a regionalist. Mrs. Gertrude Vanderbilt Whitney bought "Baptism" for her museum and became his major patron. Curry remained in New York until 1936 teaching at Cooper Union, then at Art Students League. His works are in the collections of several museums including the Whitney Museum of American Art, Art Institute of Chicago, Metropolitan Museum, St. Louis Art Museum Collection. Provenance – the estate of the artist; Graham Gallery – NYC; Merritt Chase Gallery – Chicago; Knoxville, TN collection. Condition: Canvas laid down on board. Overall very good condition, blacklight indicates a few small inpainted spots in the sky area and one of the red pigments used by Curry appears to flouresce a light purple. These areas are confined to the neck and upper shoulder area of pheasants and one of the background trees and a couple of places in the foreground grass. [See more photos →]

172 Lot 172: Texas Horn Chair attrib. Charles Puppe Texas Horn Chair attrib. Charles Puppe Lot 172: Texas Horn Chair attrib. Charles Puppe

Texas horn armchair with cattle hide seat covering and glass ball casters. Unsigned, attributed to Charles Puppe of San Antonio, circa 1889. 37" H x 31" W x 21" D. Note: information recently furnished to us by Alan Rogers of the National Texas Longhorn Museum suggests this chair was made by Charles Puppe, based on the arrangement and placement of the horns which is similar, but not identical to the No. 6 Chair by Wenzel Friedrich (1827-1902), also of San Antonio (to whom we initially attributed this chair). Friedrich and Puppe both used glass ball casters on the feet of their horn chairs, but the placement of the four longer horns making up the bottom back of the chair, with the middle two touching, suggests it was in fact made by Puppe; it is identical to a documented chair Puppe made in 1889 for rancher Dennis Martin O'Connor, who in turn gave it to President Benjamin Harrison. Charles Puppe had a shop at 229 Commerce Street in San Antonio. He first appears in city directories as a maker of horn chairs in 1885 and is listed as late as 1891. Provenance: A.R. Dickey Estate, Knoxville, TN. Condition: Overall very good condition with expected wear. Hide covering possibly not original. [See more photos →]

437 Lot 437: Lord Byron signed letters archive Lord Byron signed letters archive Lot 437: Lord Byron signed letters archive

Scrapbook or archive devoted to George Gordon Noel, Lord Byron (1788-1824), containing Byron family letters including one attributed to the renowned English Romantic poet, various periodical clippings, and related items. At least some of these items are believed to have been owned by Thomas "Clio" Rickman (1760-1834), publisher of political pamphlets and broadsides, poetry contributor to periodicals, and bookseller. The Byron letter is addressed to C. Rickman on J. Whatman watermarked paper, dated April 30th, 1814. "Sir, I have only this day received your letter. My name & satisfaction are very much at your friend's service and I wish him all success in his undertaking. I have the honor to be your very obedient Byron." 7" x 18" (double sheet). 2nd letter (family letter) dated 1784, "Dear Madam, We are under very great and unfeigned concern for the loss of Lady Conyers. It will likely be severely felt in the neighborhood of the castle. If anything can alleviate Mr. Byron's __ at this event it must be to see the child in a good state of health and too young ot participate in a common distress." Signed __ Byron (possibly Vice Admiral John "Jack" Byron, grandfather of George Gordon Byron, likely in reference to Byron's older half-sister, Augusta Leigh, with whom he would later have an incestous affair); 3rd letter dated Aug. 9, 1791, just after the death of Byron's father, signed by S.M. (?) Byron to James Sykes, reporting the news of "the death of my unfortunate eldest brother, he died at Valenciennes 2 August after a long suffering illness"; 4th letter dated Dec. 23, 1792, to James Sykes from Captain George Anson Byron (Lord Byron's uncle), requesting money to pay off another debt on behalf of Lord Byron's newly widowed mother. The lot also contains a 3" x 5" clipping pasted on support paper and reading "This copy sent out in August 1809. I did not receive till April 4th 1811 when it was forwarded from Malta to me at Athens – Byron" (note signature does not match that on the letter; a note is written beneath it: "The Author of so many fine poetical works – Clio"); hand-copied excerpts of poetry including "lines on the Gallic nation on their desertion of Napoleon Bonaparte, written by Lord Byron, copied by Miss Harlet and sent to Thomas Hardy" with pencil inscription "Mrs. Hardy's writing" (pasted to support paper in 2 spots); 2 handwritten excerpts from Moore's Life of Lord Byron (1 contains a copy of 2 Byron letters); a handwritten letter from Isabella, "Lady Carlisle" (relative of Lord Byron; contains no reference to him); a note unsigned and undated, ordering supplies on behalf of "Mrs. Byron" (not in Byron's hand); and engraved portraits of Byron and one of his early loves, Mrs. Musters, cut from books. Condition: All items in generally good condition with expected overall toning, light foxing, and scattered small stains and losses. Many contain 19th century inscriptions (possibly by Clio Rickman) attributing them to various persons and attempting to provide historical content. Byron-signed letter has 2 holes affecting the address sheet; the sheet with actual letter is in good condition with a minor loss to lower edge of blank section (text unaffected); light crease across Byron's signature. Glue residue at fold from being in scrapbook, not affecting text. Clio Rickman inscriptions present including: "The handwriting of Lord Byron" beneath address. [See more photos →]

He moved to Nashville shortly thereafter but, with Nashville under Union Occupation during the Civil War, relocated to Louisville in 1863. Influenced by images of African Americans in the South, he returned to New York in 1866 where he began an almost exclusive focus on genre scenes with African American themes. He was elected president of the National Academy of Design in 1869 and later served as president of the American Watercolor Society. (Source: Askart: The Artists' Bluebook). Wood stayed for a period of time at Hamilton Place in Columbia, Tennessee, home of CSA Colonel Henry Yeatman (1831-1910) and his wife, Mary Brown Polk Yeatman. During Wood's stay, he painted several Tennessee portraits, including one of Mrs. Yeatman, which still hangs there. Hamilton Place was built in 1832 by Mary Brown Polk Yeatman's family (cousins to U.S. President James K. Polk and relations of Rachel Donelson Jackson). This painting was found in the home's attic in 1972. Condition: Clean hole puncture upper quadrant. Heavy surface grime. Some exfoliation along lower edge. [See more photos →]

300 Lot 300: Portrait of CSA Gen. Beauregard Portrait of CSA Gen. Beauregard Lot 300: Portrait of CSA Gen. Beauregard

Oil on canvas of the Confederate General P. G. T. Beauregard (Pierre Gustave Toutant, 1818-1893, ). A note with the painting states the portrait was painted in Paris and presented to Mrs. J. E. Lutz (Adelia (Armstrong) Lutz) by Mrs. Horace Maynard (Laura Ann Washburn). Unframed. 21″ W x 25 1/2″ H. Provenance and History: Private collection of an Armstrong descendant. Horace Maynard (1814 – 1882) was an American educator, attorney, politician and diplomat. Initially elected to the House of Representatives from Tennessee’s 2nd Congressional District in 1857, Maynard, an ardent Union supporter, became one of the few Southern congressmen to maintain his seat in the House during the Civil War. Toward the end of the war, Maynard served as Tennessee’s attorney general under Governor Andrew Johnson, and later as ambassador to Turkey under President Ulysses S. Grant and Postmaster General under President Rutherford B. Hayes. His connection to the rebel general Beauregard remains somewhat of a mystery given the political differences between the two. Beauregard supervised the shelling of Fort Sumter and later, exercised overall authority during General Hood’s Tennessee campaign (although he took no direct part in the operation). After the Battle of Nashville and subsequent retreat to Alabama, he joined what little was left of the Army of Tennessee, serving the final months of the war under Joe Johnston. He is buried in the Army of Tennessee section at Metairie Cemetery in his hometown of New Orleans. Adelia Armstrong Lutz (1859-1931) is best known as a painter. She studied art at the Corcoran Gallery in Washington, at the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts, and abroad. Upon her return to Knoxville in 1887, she painted portraits, landscapes and flower studies. She married John Edwin Lutz in 1885 and they built “Westwood”, on Knoxville’s Kingston Pike in approximately 1890. Condition: Unframed. Overall cracqelure. Minor repaint/touchup near chin and neck area. [See more photos →]

He had one daughter and nine sons, four of whom served in the Civil War on the side of the Confederacy; two of them were killed. Another son was killed in the Mexican War. As John Timothee Trezevant wrote in his book about the Trezevant family, Daniel Trezevant was considered a "distinguished, accomplished physician… His house was fired on by drunken Federal soldiers while he stood by and looked on appealingly, in vain, for the privilege of carrying from the burning building the pictures of those who were dear to him, and had died years before. All during the hard times of the last year of the war, the old gentleman had his house full, not only of his own children, but grandchildren, and no man in Columbia gave more liberally to charity and the aid of many who saw starvation coming in the door during that trying period."

Large Civil War archive of letters from Corporal Hiram C. Barney of the New York Cavalry, 21st Regiment, Company H, F. Hiram Barney of Rochester, NY enlisted in September 1863 and was mustered out in Colorado Territory, 1866 (died 1908). Approximately 20 letters, 77 pages, and two envelopes. Includes encounters and accounts with Confederates Morgan and Mosby. Locations of letters and campaigns include Camp Stoneman – Washington D.C., Camp Sullivan – Halltown, VA, Camp Graham – Martinsville, VA, Winchester VA, Fort Collins, Colorado, and Platte River, Colorado Territory. Brief excerpts include (a more complete summary is available): October of 1863 includes the arrests of deserters and comments of “the enemy is retreating”. December of 1863 letter describes moral condition of Regt and modes of punishment inflicted on offenders. January of 1864 statement “Saw any number of big, fat, greasy and lazy negros around the stables for cavalry horses.” Hiram goes on to describe three hundred men from his regiment going out on picket, 150 mounted. February of 1864 letter states “There are nothing but guerilllas around here and sometimes they are very unceremoniously brought within our lines. The boys like to hunt them.” Further writings “The company were out this foremorn with their horses for target practice with carbines and revolvers. We had a good time.” Hiram also goes on to write about a contest where soldiers would climb a greased pole. He also writes that he will never write his brother, “Andrew” (possibly Major Andrew Barney of the New York 24th). He then goes on to discuss how “Morgan” captured men from Hiram’s regiment. Morgan and one of his men disguised themselves in Union uniforms and when three Union men from Hiram’s regiment came over to the two, Morgan captured the soldiers. May 1864 letter – The regiment was sent out with 125 men to the neighborhood of Berryville and Winchester on a scouting expedition. Several men from the regiment went some two miles from camp to get supper at a farm house. While waiting for supper, they “were surprised to to see the parlor door open and several revolvers suddenly ponted at them behind each pair of which was either Col. Mosby a Rebel Capt or a Liet all rather determined men with shots in their eyes who demanded the immediate surrender of the Yankees.”…”Col Mosby was highly elated by the big haul he had made and required his prisoner to follow him to headquarters at Paris.” Mosby taunts the captured men with phrases like, “Were they with Maj. Sullivan fo the 1st Vets when his men ran away and left him”.. July 1864 letter – “tired after falling back for 200 miles.”..”I think the rebs are getting desperate and this will constitute their last desperate act.” October 1864 letter – Hiram thinks they are going to join Sheridan in the Valley, “Sheridan the ablest of generals.” February 1865 letter -“Charleston and Columbia are ours”. Hiram gives a detailed account of the capture of “Johnnies” by the 14th PA and 21st NY. It also discusses the narrow escape of Mosby. Hiram also discusses Union spying tactics, “Lieut D can get all the men he wants when he goes out as a scout but seldom takes a large party, preferring to take but a few and to go over by paths through his woods. As you will understand he and his men are all dressed in rebel uniform and whenever they come up on a larger force than they can manage, he says to them – have seen any yankies around here? On this he accumulates a vast amount of information of the military movements of the enemy about here.” December 1865 Fort Collins letter – Discusses his fellow soldiers of questionable character. His experience tells himself to treat them like a venomous reptile. Hiram goes on to actually describe a huge rattlesnake that was found and killed in the orderlies tent. April 4th, 1866 Fort Collins letter – “No Buffalo are to be seen here now, they having fled from the unerring rifle of the white man to more congenial quarters. I have a strong desire to see one of these animals of the prairie.” Condition: All letters in overall very good, readable condition. Some fading, stains, minor tears. [See more photos →]

288 Lot 288: 1790 Nashville TN Land Grant & Survey Map 1790 Nashville TN Land Grant & Survey Map Lot 288: 1790 Nashville TN Land Grant & Survey Map

Land grant dated 1790 and survey map dated 1792, concerning land in Davidson County, Tennessee, granted by governor Richard Speight and the State of North Carolina to George Walker, assignee of Private William Gipson, "in consideration of signal bravery and persevering zeal". The land, referred to in the small survey map as "Mero District," would later become known as part of Nashville. It encompassed 640 acres in the "county of Davidson on the south side of the Cumberland River on a branch of the pond lick, beginning at a cherry tree black walnut and elm marked ID J2 on an old Buffalo Trace that heads north Eastwards from Pond lick thence South…" Land Grant: 13" x 15". Survey Map: 7-1/2" x 6". Note: Davidson County, Tennessee was created by the North Carolina Legislature in 1783 in honor of NC General William Lee Davidson, who was killed in the Revolutionary War. The settlement in Davidson County, Tennessee, now known as Nashville was founded along the Cumberland River in 1779-80 by James Robertson and John Donelson. The Mero Superior Court district was established in 1788 and named by James Robertson in an effort to curry favor with the Spanish governor of Louisiana, Esteban Rodrigues Miro, who Robertson hoped might help stop attacks from the Creeks and Chickamaugas on the Cumberland settlement and open the Mississippi River to Cumberland travelers. (Miro's name was inadvertently misspelled). Andrew Jackson served as Mero's first District Attorney (source: The Tennessee Encyclopedia). Genealogical records show George Walker, born 1768 in North Carolina, married Rachel Caffery in Davidson County, Tennessee in 1790, same year of this land grant. Walker did not remain long in Tennessee, however; he sold his land to John Walker Sr. in 1795 and moved to Kentucky, where he died in 1819. Condition: Land grant has separations at fold lines, currently held together by archival tape, and two 1/2" holes. Moderate toning and light stain at lower edge. Survey map has a large loss at right corner, separations at center fold line, and a narrow 1/4" hole. The lower printed area does not contain a date or Speight's signature. Land grant is matted.

78 Lot 78: 7 Calhoun TN Coin Tablespoons, Knot Pattern 7 Calhoun TN Coin Tablespoons, Knot Pattern Lot 78: 7 Calhoun TN Coin Tablespoons, Knot Pattern

Seven coin silver tablespoons in the rare Knot pattern, marked W.H. Calhoun in rectangle (William H. Calhoun, working Nashville, 1835-d. 1865) with small S-shaped engraved mark also present. Monogram RF. 8"L. 11.225 oz troy. Circa 1860. Note: while there are a few extant examples of coin silver flatware in the Knot pattern, it is rare, and these are the only known examples of Knot flatware bearing Calhoun marks. The scarcity of other pieces in this pattern (which dates late in Calhoun's career) and additional small engraved symbol next to the rectangle bearing Calhoun's name raises the possibility he may have been the retailer of these spoons, not the maker, although his retailed works typically exhibit an incuse mark. The pattern itself may likely have been inspired by the Gordion Knot of Greek legend, which came to symbolize a problem that could only be solved by bold, extraordinary action and may have been symbolic of attitudes around the time of the Civil War. A very unusual example of one of the first decorative flatware patterns being sold in Tennessee. Condition: Light wear/loss of definition to pattern on backs of spoons; [See more photos →]

297 Lot 297: TN Slavery Lawsuit Archive & books TN Slavery Lawsuit Archive & books Lot 297: TN Slavery Lawsuit Archive & books

Madison County, Tennessee slavery lawsuit archive. Lot consists of 17 documents from 1848-1852 relating to the case of a young female slave named Phebe, "about 14 years old, likely and smart", who was allegedly traded by Samuel L. Anderson, William Sheppard, and James Fussell to William Turner in exchange for another female slave named Dianna. Phebe was later discovered to be "laboring under a virulent gonhorrea" and Turner, alleging Phebe's sellers knew of her disease, filed suit demanding compensation. Included are handwritten copies of depositions in the case including testimony of Dr. William Warren that Phebe had "not yet arrived at the age of womanhood" and that she reported "her purchasers had given her the disease", as well as testimonies from several witnesses regarding the transaction and Phebe's value and health (with some witnesses disputing that she had any signs of physical ailment), and the difference in value between a "sound female slave" and an "unsound female slave". The documents begin with the bill of complaint and follow the case as it progressed through the courts until its resolution in 1852, when the defendants were ordered to pay Turner $300 plus court costs (no compensation was allotted to Phebe). Most of the papers have been photocopied and transcribed in typewritten copies included in this lot. Also included with this lot is a copy of the book "Historical Madison: the Story of Jackson and Madison County, Tennessee from the Moundbuilders to World War I" by Emma Inman Williams, published 1946. This book contains a photocopied document reference to "Phebe, aged about thirteen years" purchased by Samuel Anderson in a group of 35 slaves in Nov. of 1847 (p. 202), and to John Fussell, who "had a fight in the court yard with one certain John Montgomery" in 1824 and was fined $10 for contempt of court. There is also a reference to William Jackson (p. 216) entering an agreement with the state of Tennessee to import freed slave laborers from South Carolina to Tennessee in 1867. Condition: Papers in overall good condition with some fading, toning, and small edge tears; the July 6 1850 document has some tears at fold lines. Book dustjacket exhibits wear and several tears.

399 Lot 399: Middle TN Cylindrical Honey Jar Middle TN Cylindrical Honey Jar Lot 399: Middle TN Cylindrical Honey Jar

Middle Tennessee transitional stoneware pottery jar with strap handle, sometimes referred to as a "honey or molasses container" stamped "J. S." for Jeff Spears. 11" H. Late 19th century. Note: In Middle Tennessee, family-operated potteries were concentrated in White, Putnam, and DeKalb Counties on lands rich in clay deposits situated on the Eastern Highland Rim. Pottery manufacturing in this three-county area seems to have been tied to the arrival of Andrew LaFever in White County about 1824. LaFever's six sons and the three generations of the family which succeeded them had connections with most of the major potteries in the area and seem to have influenced their products. Also noteworthy among family operations were those of the Dunn, Hedgecough, Roberts, Elrod, and Spears families. (Source: TN State archives) Condition: Several chips to rim.
