Signed lower right corner, "Beauford Delaney 1963" (or 1964). Executed in Paris, Beauford painted this oil on canvas of his mother from memory. Author David Leeming writes, "Beauford Delaney's early life was dominated by the powerful figure of his mother, Delia Johnson Delaney, a strict, proud woman who upheld what she saw as the Christian virtues. She punctuated lessons on forbearance, patience, self-control, and turning the other cheek with songs." (Amazing Grace: A Life of Beauford Delaney). In 1865, Delia was born into slavery in Richmond, married and had 10 children in the Knoxville, TN area (only 4 children lived past the age of 20 years old). Delia Delaney died in 1958.

123 Lot 123: Pr. Ralph E. Earl Portraits, Hardy Cryer and Wife Pr. Ralph E. Earl Portraits, Hardy Cryer and Wife Lot 123: Pr. Ralph E. Earl Portraits, Hardy Cryer and Wife

Pair of Tennessee portraits by Ralph Eleaser Whiteside Earl (1788 – 1838) depicting the Reverend Hardy Murfree Cryer (b. 1792–1846), in dark coat with ruffled collar, and a woman believed to be his first wife Elizabeth Rice Cryer (b. 1793–1832) in black mourning dress with white lace collar and cap. Housed in black and gilt wooden frames. Both portraits measure 26 1/2" H x 21 1/2" W sight; 33" H x 28 1/2" W framed. Circa 1830. Provenance: Descended in subject's family to current consignor. Biography ( Courtesy of James C. Kelly, Virginia Historical Society, Tennessee Encyclopedia of History and Culture, 1998): Ralph E. W. Earl was the son of Connecticut painter Ralph Earl (1751-1801). Earl studied under his father in Northhampton, Massachusetts, before traveling to London in 1809 to study under Benjamin West and John Trumbull. In 1817, Earl arrived in Nashville to paint General Andrew Jackson, the hero of the battle of New Orleans. Later that year, in Natchez, he met and married Jane Caffrey, Rachel Jackson's niece. She died the next year, but Earl moved into the Hermitage would from then on remain in Jackson's circle, accompanying the newly elected president to Washington. During the next eight years, Earl turned out numerous paintings of Jackson. Politicians, especially Democrats, knew it "did not hurt to order a portrait of General Jackson from Earl." He painted many of Jackson's friends and a few of his foes. Earl returned to the Hermitage with Jackson in 1837 and died there in September 1838. Rev. Cryer was a close friend of Andrew Jackson who spent time at the Hermitage. According to the book "The Making the American Thoroughbred" (see book, also offered in this auction), Cryer was born in North Carolina in 1792, married Elizabeth Rice in 1812, was a member of the Tennessee Conference, Methodist Episcopal Church 1813-1816, and served one year on the Nashville district. "After withdrawing from the itinerant ranks, he served as a "local" preacher and continued to exercise the offices of a minister the remainder of his life. His many contributions to The Turf Register and The Spirit of the Times are rich in Biblical and classical allusions, after the style of that day; show much force and originality; and amply support the statement of McFerrin that he was of an ardent temperament and had a brilliant mind. His ardor distinguished him as a breeder no less than as a preacher. He kept more thorougbred stallions than any man of his time, except, perhaps, Thomas Alderson; owned a few blood mares; and took a great interest in turf sports." The book quotes stud books kept by Cryer which show that "Cryer's horses were patronized by practically all the prominent breeders and turfmen named heretofore in this volume, from Andrew Jackson and John Catron, down". Cryer's passion for horses seems to have gotten him into trouble only once with his church; he was charged with horse racing and summoned to a trial before a church tribunal. "The proof was clear and conclusive," wrote J.R. Hubbard in The Spirit of the Times, "but the evidence showed that the horse was raced in the name of Col. George Elliott, and that this gentleman owned one half of him." In Cryer's defense, he told the judge: "I would like for you to let me know how I can arrange it for my half of the horse to stand in the stable while Col. Elliott's half is racing." He was acquitted. CONDITION: Blacklighting of portrait of Rev. Cryer indicates inpainting to perimeter of face including the left edge of forehead, lower right jaw line, spot to lower left edge of mouth and spot to the middle of the chin. Lighter area of fluorescence to forehead and background, possibly a varnish issue. Blacklighting of Mrs. Cryer indicates possible inpainting or varnish issue to a couple areas of forehead and chin. Possible inpainting or varnish issue to a couple areas of the background. Older relining, probably late 19th/early 20th century. [See more photos →]

Includes Beauford Delaney's paint cloth and paint stick with similar color paint residue. 24" x 19 1/4" sight, 27" x 19 1/4" total, brush 12" length. Note – Beauford Delaney's departure from New York to Paris in 1953 also marked the transition from figurative compositions to abstract expressionism with a focus on color and light.

An example of one of his earliest known dated abstracts is an untitled oil on a raincoat fragment from 1954. This work serves as the cover for Sue Canterbury's book, "Beauford Delaney: From New York to Paris", Minneapolis Institute of Art, 2004. Sue Canterbury, Associate Curator of the Dallas Museum of Art, and Stephen Wicks, Curator of the Knoxville Museum of Art, were able to inspect this work when Ms. Canterbury gave her September 2014 lecture on Beauford Delaney in Knoxville. This Beauford Delaney abstract is only the second documented example of his work using canvas available from household objects. Provenance – Estate of Beauford Delaney, Derek L. Spratley, Esquire, court-appointed administrator. CONDITION: Stains, some staple remnants to margins, toning. [See more photos →]

Dabney Scales in uniform, a CDV of the Shenandoah, and an author signed book/pamplet titled, "Cruises of the Confederate States Steamers "Shenandoah” and "Nashville” by Captain William C. Whittle, 1910. Note – the Confederate ship, CSS Shenandoah, fired the last shot of the Civil War and marked the final surrender of Confederate forces on November 6, 1865. Given the orders to destroy the New England whaling fleet, the partially crewed Confederate ship circumnavigated the earth, capturing 38 vessels and taking over 1000 prisoners between 1864-65. Twenty five ships were captured after the Confederacy had collapsed. Biography of Dabney Scales – Dabney Minor Scales (1841-1920) of Memphis, TN was the son of Peter Scales, a planter originally from Virginia. Dabney was born and raised in Holly Springs, Mississippi, attended the US Naval Academy and joined the Confederate Navy at the outbreak of the Civil War. He served on the CSS Savannah, CSS Capital, CSS Arkansas, CSS Atlanta, and the CSS Shenandoah. In 1863-4, Scales was assigned to Europe and spent time in London and Paris regarding the outfitting and manning of Confederate ships constructed in England. Fearing he would be prosecuted as a pirate after the Civil War, Dabney Scales lived in Mexico for a short time, but was back in the States practicing law in Memphis by about 1869. He married Susan Winchester Powell (granddaughter of Gen. James Winchester) in Nashville circa 1885 and was elected to the Tennessee legislature and served in the Tennessee State Senate 1895-1896. He returned to active Naval duty in the Spanish American War, serving as a lieutenant despite his age. 1st item – CSS Shenandoah ship diary of Lieutenant Dabney Scales, 85 pages with some hand drawn illustrations. Complete diary has a total number of 104 pages and includes a partial journal by a different hand from May 1864 – December 1864 relating to the ship Edward of New Bedford – the first whaling vessel captured by the Shenandoah, and two pages of an 1870 entry by Dabney Scales. The log of the Shenandoah is titled "Confederate States Shenandoah cruising for Yankees”. Scales retroactively records events back to February 13th, 1865 in Melbourne, Australia where the Shenandoah was dry docked for repairs. The diary goes into extensive detail on major events including the encounter with authorities in Melbourne and Liverpool, the capturing of vessels and crews for the year 1865, encounters with the natives, and interactions among Shenandoah officers. A June 22nd entry refers to the "Sophia Thorton" ship Lt. Scales boarded. The ship "made some show of escape by standing on through the ice, but a shot from one of the rifle guns brought her to." He continues, "out of these vessels we have heard the most disheartening news I have ever heard from our poor suffering country. The captures of Savannah, Charleston, ..Richmond together with the surrender of Lee, with an army of 22,000 men – with this also comes the tradgical death of the "Rail Splitter" by the hand of an assasin. This will, of course, make a hero of him –”. His last entry on this day, "To the part of this news relating to the surrender of Lee"s army + the disbanding of those not surrendered, I give no credence at all……I think however we should struggle on to the last, and if as the yankee papers say —Davis crosses the Mississippi to establish a Confederacy there. I for one shall follow and join him rather than subject to Yankee rule.” On August 3rd, Lt. Scales writes, "How shall I attempt to describe the change that has come over the officers and crew of this ship within the last twenty four hours. I can only write a few unintelligible words that may serve to recall to my mind what my own feelings were yesterday afternoon…we came in sight of a sail – the first seen since we left the Arctic… Barracouta (ship) – boarded her and brought off the news – My G.! What news it was for us…. I was therefore in a measure prepared for either good or bad news but not for such as was in store for me….The only words I caught were – "All over – President Davis and cabinet prisoners in New York – All organized armies surrendered…" Upon arriving at Liverpool in November 1865, Dabney Scales writes on November 6th – "The (British) pilot boarded us in the mid watch this morning. His news confirms that given us by the "Barracouta” – the downfall of the Southern Confederacy. The war, he said had been over so long that people had forgotten all about it.” While many of these events have been published in previous books on the Shenandoah, this diary represents new primary source material previously unavailable. Regarding the partial journal of the whaling ship "Edward” starting May 5th 1864 and ending December 1st 1864 (17 pages), the author writes of Right whales sightings and discusses and event Nov. 29th where a whale was struck and capsized the boat. 2nd grouping – 1/4 plate ambrotype of Confederate Dabney Scales in uniform with hand tinted gold highlights, CDV of Lt. Dabney Scales taken in Melbourne, Austrailia. Marked verso "Johnstone & Co. Melbourne”, 3 7/8" x 2 1/2", and a CDV of the ship, CSS Shenandoah, 3 3/4" x 2 3/8".

Biography (courtesy Askart). The Artists' Bluebook: Albert Earnest "Beanie" Backus is regarded as the Dean of Florida Painters and the most influential of the Highwaymen, a group of African American landscape painters who sold paintings out of their vehicles in the 1950s. Born in Fort Pierce, Florida in 1906, Backus showed talent at an early age. Although essentially self taught (he took summer classes at the Parsons School in New York), he gave lessons to numerous artists. He received his first national recognition in 1939 in an exhibition sponsored by IBM and the Golden Gate Exposition Committee, called "Art Across the Nation". He joined the Navy in 1942, and after being wounded, continued to sketch and paint as much as possible. From the 1930s through 1950s, much of his work was impressionistic; in the last 30 years of his life, his landscapes became more representational. In 1957 he set up a studio in Jamaica and remained there for several years before returning to Florida. His studio in Fort Pierce is preserved as the Backus Gallery and Museum.

134 Lot 134: William Edmondson Bird Sculpture William Edmondson Bird Sculpture Lot 134: William Edmondson Bird Sculpture

William Edmondson (American/Tennessee, c. 1884-1951) carved limestone sculpture of a bird with chiseled side and tailfeathers, perched and extended slightly forward, as if peering and poised to fly downward. Rectangular hardwood base retains label from its exhibition at William Edmondson: A Retrospective, Tennessee State Museum, 1981, #46; also exhibited "Will Edmondson's Mirkels", Cheekwood, 1964 #17. 9-1/2" x 16-1/2" x 5 1/16". Provenance: the estate of Louise Katzman, Nashville, Tennessee, acquired directly from the artist. Biography: William Edmondson was born in Davidson County, Tennessee, the son of freed slaves, and worked most of his life as a railroad employee and janitor. A spiritual experience at the age of 57 prompted him to begin sculpting limestone using a railroad spike as chisel, and he claimed divine inspiration for the works produced during his 17 year art career. Biblical figures, women, and animals were frequent subjects, although he also produced more utilitarian items such as tombstones and birdbaths (for a discussion of the importance of birds as Biblical subject matter and in Edmondson's oeuvre, see William Edmondson: A Retrospective, Georganne Fletcher, ed., p. 34-35). In 1937, Edmondson became the first African American to receive a solo exhibition at the Museum of Modern Art. He is regarded as one of the most important self-taught artists of the 20th century and his works are in several major museums. CONDITION: The bird has an old break to the tail feather area with a rod support entrance to the underside of the break, possibly done by Edmondson. A stabilized crack runs diagonally across the base. Mrs. Katzman is believed to have purchased the sculpture in this condition directly from the artist. [See more photos →]

202 Lot 202: Andrew Jackson signed Creek Indian Document, Alabama Andrew Jackson signed Creek Indian Document, Alabama Lot 202: Andrew Jackson signed Creek Indian Document, Alabama

An 1834 land sale document between a Creek Indian and two Alabama men, approved and signed by President Andrew Jackson (1767-1845; President 1829-1837). This document, dated May 30,1834, concerns land in Russell County, Alabama (South half section 6, Township 16, Range 28), being transferred by Chin Kot Choo-Key (sic?) to Fielding Scoggins and James McDaniel for the sum of Four Hundred Dollars. Chin Kot Choo-Key signed by means of an X and there is an accompanying stamp by his cypher. The transfer was certified " a full value of the land" by [General] J. W. A. Sanford, who also certified that Chin Kot Choo-Key "has appeared before me, and after the transaction was fully explained to him, he approved the same: the sums stated to have been received by him were paid in my presince (sic)." President Jackson approved the sale in 1834 on reverse of document; there are additional inscriptions where the bond was transferred to James Simons in 1835. 12-1/2" x 14-1/2". Note: The 1832 Treaty of Cusseta traded the Creek's sovereign claim to their land in exchange for legal title to their land. Parcels of 640 acres for chiefs and 320 acres for everyone else were issued to Creek Families, who could then sell them or remain on the land. However, whites continued to encroach on Creek land and when Creeks tried to sell their reserves, they often were cheated by unscrupulous land speculators, all of which contributed to sproradic violence. These skirmishes finally erupted into war in the spring of 1836. The violence provided President Andrew Jackson with justification for removing all the Creeks from Alabama (source: The Encyclopedia of Alabama). CONDITION: Jackson's signature is bold and clear but slightly faded; document is taped at fold lines, small loss at lower left corner, 2" discoloration or stain at bottom edge, scattered foxing and overall toning.

205 Lot 205: Winchester Revolutionary War Account Book, 1779-1804 Winchester Revolutionary War Account Book, 1779-1804 Lot 205: Winchester Revolutionary War Account Book, 1779-1804

Revolutionary War related account book and notebook belonging to early Tennessee settlers General James Winchester (b. 1752-d.1826) and his brother, Major George Winchester (b. 1757-d. 1794, killed by Indians), including an entry related to Gen. Lafayette, the 1795 Tennessee Territorial Census, and the Winchesters' survey work laying out much of early Middle Tennessee. Inside one cover is affixed an affadavit dated 1853 and filed in a Davidson County, Tennessee court, by Gen. Winchester's son George W Winchester, stating that "the old book or document to which this is affixed was found by him a few days since among the files of his father's old papers" and is being entered into evidence as part of his widow's efforts to obtain a pension for his Revolutionary War service. Inside the other cover is a second 1853 affavit attesting that the handwriting on page 6 and "the pages marked A.B." is that of Gen. Winchester's brother Capt. George Winchester, entered into evidence for similar purposes. Speaking to the scarcity of paper in the Southern backcountry, this 7" x 6" book appears to have been used by both brothers from 1779-circa 1804 as everything from a ledger to survey notebook to account book, with several entries in no particular date order. The first pages record Revolutionary War purchases by or allotment to various soldiers for items such as hats, shoes, blankets, and buckles. Several of the soldiers listed in the early pages served in Gen. Nathaniel Gist's Virginia Regiment, 4th Company, while Winchester was a Lieutenant in Maryland's 3rd Regiment (purchases by Gist are listed later in the book). Page 5 also includes notations regarding spies: "Johnson Amberson and Richard Anderson service as spies commenced 18th July 1793/ John Harden and Shafer Alden (?) commenced as spies 23 July 1793." Later pages contain entries for 1780 and 1781 with a list of purchases by Major Andrew Waggoner (also of Virginia) including a japanned coffee pot, a pewter dish, a copper tea kettle, and 5-1/2 gallons rum; as well as accounts received including "Received one stray steer, 495 lb beef." An 8 page Stock Account dated September 1st 1785 lists "2 servants" and names like Jabo and Polly Cruse (possibly slaves) alongside iron, harness and shoe leather, ammunition, scales and waits (sic), axes, and "one set desk furniture". Perhaps the most intriguing Revolutionary War entry is dated Richmond, July 1781: "Received of the State of Virginia for order of the Honorable Major General the Marquis de Lafayette the sum of One Hundred Thousand Dollars the Exchange being thus computed at Five Hundred for one though when laid out it was not equal to Six Hundred for one.-G. Winchester" Further down the page is an entry: "To be observed that I was appointed Adjutant to Col. Gist's Regt the first day of January 1780 and did duly constantly as such until the prisoners were landed at Jamestown in July 1781, the whole corps being captured… G. Winchester" (note: these are the pages marked AB, referred to in the affadavit). Entries appear for a "Phisick Account" starting in 1785 (the year after the Winchester brothers emigrated to Tennessee) through 1792, and include things like extracts and syringes, gum arabic and opium; on page 32 is an "Invoice of Medicine brought from Maryland November 1790." On page 29 is scribbled a verse: "Where first I saw your sweet bewitching face/ Love's fatal shafts within my heart took place – S.B. Winchester" (Although this entry is undated, James Winchester is believed to have married Susan Black Winchester in 1792). Later pages contain survey notes for sites and settlers in Sumner County, Tennessee (including Isaac Bledsoe, Capt. William Martin, Capt. Shelby Coleman, John Donohue, Robert Caruthers, Samuel Stewart, and more), more than 20 pages (front and back), some signed J. Winchester but others signed G. Winchester, through about 1804. There is a 1791 note signed J. Winchester "Pay abstracts sent to the Governor the 30th of August 1791 for 39 dollars & 17 cents for pay rations 6.13 Virginia money." Other elements include lists such as "Livestock sent to the range on Smith's Fork and put under the care of Mr. Forrester". Another important entry appears to relate to the 1795 Territorial Census, used to establish Tennessee statehood, entitled "Enumeration of the inhabitants of the Territory of the United States South of the Ohio taken between the 15th day of September and the 15th day of November 1795" with a list of the counties in Tennessee and a column for Slaves, Free Inhabitants and Total (66,650 free inhabitants, 10,612 enslaved, and 77,262 total). While not a house-by-house account, these entries are most detailed for Sumner County where at least some individual households do appear to be listed. Also included with the account book is a 12 page (front and back) longhand speech, undated, prefaced "Fellow Citizens," believed to be an address given by Gen. Winchester's son George in Gallatin or Nashville at the conclusion of the Mexican war, 11-1/2" x 9-1/2". CONDITION: Account book: Cover boards present but one board cracked and repaired; retains exterior leather spine but all exterior elements are very worn; interior pages are toned and brittle with some minor losses to edges or corners, some pages appear to have been cut out long ago. Overall pages are in good condition and readable. Speech: toning and minor losses to edges and corners. [See more photos →]
