Cloar graduated from Southwestern College (now Rhodes College) in Memphis, Tennessee, and went on to study at the Memphis Academy of Arts under the artist George Oberteuffer. In 1936, he moved to New York to attend the Art Students League. There, Cloar’s achievements earned him a McDowell fellowship which he used to travel across the American Southwest, West Coast and Mexico. Cloar served with the Army Air Corps during World War II and was deployed to Saipan and Iwo Jima. Upon his return from the war, he was awarded a Guggenheim traveling scholarship to fund an extended sojourn to Central and South America in 1946. Two years later, several of his images were featured in a Life Magazine article titled “Backwoods Boyhood,” and Cloar’s career went on to receive additional national acclaim. By the mid 1950s, Cloar had settled permanently in Memphis, where he produced paintings, often executed in casein tempera and acrylic paints. His works are in the collections of the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden, Metropolitan Museum of Art, Museum of Modern Art, Brooks Museum of Art, and Library of Congress. In 1993, Cloar’s painting “Faculty and Honor Students, Lewis Schoolhouse” was one of six paintings by American artists selected to commemorate the inauguration of President Clinton.

Nicolay and John Hay (New York: The Century Company, 1890; measuring 9″ x 6 1/2″), along with unrelated letters autographed by the book’s authors. These letters, also adhered to the front leaves, include a handwritten note on Supreme Court of the United States letterhead addressed to Harry Hance of West Chester, PA and dated March 11, 1886, reading “My Dear Sir, I regret I am unable to send you an autograph of President Lincoln or to indicate where one could be obtained. Yours Truly, John G. Nicolay”; and a printed note, signed in ink, on Department of State letterhead dated April 6, 1901 and addressed to Fred M. Hopkins of New York, reading “Dear Sir: The address you speak of was published by John Lane in London. I think he also has a publishing office in New York. I am not able to say whether he has any copies of the address on hand. I regret I have none myself. Yours sincerely, John Hay.” A note fully adhered to the front fly leaf from the bookseller Harry E. Davis of Chicago explains that this book was the first of ten volumes of the original 1890 edition of the first book publication of “Abraham Lincoln: A History” by Nicolay and Hay; that the three signed inserts contain original signatures; and that the book was bound in full dark blue Morocco with emblematic tooling to the order of Randall E. Briscoe, Houston, Texas, 1952. John Nicolay (1831-1902) and John Hay (1838-1905) were Lincoln’s private secretaries and biographers.

Civil War Archive of Jacob Kimberlin Lonas (earlier spelling Lones), Sergeant/Captain, 4th TN Infantry which later became the 1st TN Cavalry. He was born on July 18, 1842 to Charles and Rebecca Lones, the first of nine children. The Lones' were a prominent Knoxville family that originally moved to the area in the 1770's. Military biography (courtesy: Record Group 94 and Dyer, pp 1636-1637): Lones enlisted in the Union Army on April 1, 1862 at the age of 19. Commissioned Captain by the Governor of Tennessee on February 1, 1864, Lones saw action during the Tullahoma Campaign, Chickamauga, Sparta, East Tennessee Campaign, New Hope Church, Allatoona Hills, Kenesaw Mountain, the Siege of Atlanta, the Raid on Atlanta and West Point Railroad, Franklin, Nashville, Pursuit of Hood, and the expedition into Mississippi. Jacob died on February 7, 1929 and is buried in Berry Highland Memorial Cemetery. Archive includes two tintypes, one of Jacob and one of Jacob as a captain with two members of his company, Jacob's tan colored captain's epaulette, letters, books, and documents spanning from before the Civil War until the 1920's. Notable letters dating from the Civil War include a report from Jacob to Lieutenant Thurman that details how certain members of his command were wounded or killed in combat, dated January 23, 1865, Waterloo, Alabama. Jacob writes "1st Lut John Roberts wounded near Lovejoy Station Ga on the 29th of July and dies at Jonesborou (sic) Ga August 1st 64 of wound" and "Privat (sic) James L Smith killed near Linville Tenn Dec 24th 1864." One letter, dated March 31st 1865 addressed from Lones to Nashville, TN, provides a brief history of the Command of Co C First Regiment Tennessee Cavalry Vols. Another letter, dated March 30th 1864, Knoxville, TN, addressed from F.W. Reith Lt. Col. Commanding to Guards and Prikits (sic) stating "will pass Luiet (sic) Lones through the lines until the 3rd of April." Also included is Lones' copy of the New Testament, New York: American Bible Society, 1846, inscribed "J.K. Lones April 1862" on front page. Tucked into the bible is a handwritten note from R. Lones (probably his mother, Rebecca Lones) with two copies of a list of seven behaviors to uphold as a good Christian. The majority of the Civil War era documents are Quartermaster invoices completed by Jacob, starting 1863 and ending 1866, detailing the receipt and return of supplies. Also included are Muster Rolls and Payroll forms, ca. 1864-1867. Several copies of Jacob's Pension statements, dating from 1862-1925, are present in the archive. Documents pertaining to Jacob's wife, Pauline Lones nee Sharp, and her family are also included in the archive. One letter is dated July 24, 1860, from John Baxter, written by J.M. Fleming, to the Honorable Seth J.W. Lucky Chancellor & C., sitting in Chancery at Knoxville, TN. In the letter Baxter is "humbly complaining" that a few months back he gave Andrew Sharp, the father of Pauline Lones, $5900 with which to purchase a "family of Negroes from one McMahem of Sevier County…" but this deal allegedly did not follow through as planned. The letter specifies amounts paid for expenses related to the slave trade, such as "…$1200…in the purchase of one Negro man…" and "…$30 per month for the labour (sic) of [a] Negro while in their employ." Baxter does state at the end of the letter that Andrew Sharp should not be held responsible for the debt and Baxter asks his Honor for an injunction. Also included are love letters sent to Jacob by Pauline ca. 1870-1890, journal entries/essays by Pauline ca. 1868, several school "rewards" given to Pauline ca. 1861, newspaper clippings, postcards, and wedding invitations received by the couple after they were married on January 31, 1871. A copy of Jacob's will, dated January 14, 1899, is also present. In the will, Jacob appoints his wife as executor and primary benefactor. It describes property he owned in Knoxville, "including a livery stable on Henly (sic) Street South on Clinch Street and bounded by Sharp on the North and running back 130 feet, to an Alley being the same property, purchased from B.P. Flenniken…" Another notable letter from the archive is dated August 7, 1918, and was written by Sgt. L.L. Lones to Jacob K. Lones, his uncle, addressed "Some where is France." Responding to a letter from his uncle, he spends the majority of the letter asking about members of his family and his home. The bottom of the letter is marked in purple pencil that it has been censored. The letter is in a "Soldier's Mail" envelope with a "Passed by Censor No. 6376" stamp on the middle left of the envelope. A number of other letters, mementos, including a late 19th century photograph album, checks, a 1865 copy of the History of the First Regiment of Tennessee Cavalry by William Thurman, Louisville, KY Hart & Mapother Printers, etc., are also included in the archive.

Sight – 29 1/2" H x 24 1/2" W. Framed – 37" H x 32" W.

Ingerle first visited the Smoky Mountains in 1920 and fell in love with Eastern Tennessee and Western North Carolina. At that time, the natural beauty of the area was threatened by logging companies. Ingerle painted numerous landscapes there and is among the artists credited with raising awareness of the need for protection, which helped result in the establishment of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park in 1934. His work was exhibited in one man shows at the Mint Museum and Hickory Museum of Art during his lifetime, and was featured in the 2006 Art of Tennessee exhibit at the Frist Center for the Visual Arts.

230 Lot 230: Gen. James Robertson Signed Sale of Land to John Davis Gen. James Robertson Signed Sale of Land to John Davis Lot 230: Gen. James Robertson Signed Sale of Land to John Davis

Important land indenture signed by James Robertson, the explorer and co-founder of Nashville, concerning a transfer of property between himself and John Davis, a fellow early settler and surveyor of Nashville. The document, executed March 20, 1795, records Robertson selling 440 acres of land in Sumner County to his friend Davis (in fact, Davis's daughter Ciddy married Robertson's son Jonathan). According to this document, the land had been a tract of military land originally granted William Powell for his services in the Continental army in the Revolutionary War and then assigned to Col. Hardy Murfree (see related Murfree-Robertson lot in this auction). James Robertson's autograph (J.L. Robertson) is bold and clear, partially covered at the end by remnants of a seal, but nonetheless a very scarce example of the signature of one of Middle Tennessee's most important historical figures. 12" x 13 1/2". Biography (courtesy The Tennessee Encyclopedia of History and Culture): James Robertson, early leader of both the Watauga and Cumberland settlements, has been called the "Father of Middle Tennessee." Born in 1742 in Virginia, he later moved to North Carolina, where he grew increasingly frustrated with the provincial rule of Governor William Tryon. Encouraged by favorable descriptions of the land west of the Appalachian Mountains, Robertson and several of his neighbors set out for the new frontier. In May 1772, when the Watauga settlers met to establish a government, they selected Robertson as one of the five magistrates to lead the Watauga Association. He was also elected commander of the Watauga Fort. In 1777, Richard Henderson of the Transylvania Land Company acquired a large tract of land from the Cherokees, including most of what constitutes present-day Middle Tennessee; Robertson and eight other men were sent to scout it out in 1778. The following year, Robertson returned with a group of about 250 people to establish a permanent settlement, known today as Nashville. In 1791, President George Washington appointed him brigadier general of the U.S. Army of the region, and In 1804, he was commissioned US Indian Agent to the Chickasaw and Choctaw Nations. A journey in 1814 to the Chickasaw Agency at Chickasaw Bluff resulted in his falling ill, and he died a short time later. He is buried in Nashville's City Cemetery. Provenance: the estate of John Davis descendant Sarah Hunter Hicks Green, formerly of Historic Devon Farm, Nashville, Tennessee. CONDITION: Seal remnants and fold across Robertson's name. Toning, particularly along fold lines. Fading to writing, reverse side. [See more photos →]

745 Lot 745: Tatum Davis archive, Texas c. 1850s Tatum Davis archive, Texas c. 1850s Lot 745: Tatum Davis archive, Texas c. 1850s

A group of about 70 letters from 1828-1850s related to Howell Tatum Davis (b .1813-d. 1861, brother of John Davis, son of Frederick Davis, who moved to Texas circa 1840s). The letters are addressed to Davis in various parts of Texas and were likely returned to his family upon his death, as he had no known descendants. The letters mainly focus on life in pre-Civil War Texas in the state's third-oldest city, Matagorda and environs. One letter from Robert Clark reads "I received a letter from you wanting to know whether I wanted your Negro boy again this year. I should like to have him upon the same time I had him last year, he is well. I am now on my road to Houston with a load of cotton…". One letter mentions the journey of Edward Hicks II (Howell's great-nephew) from Texas to California during the gold rush – Joseph Blount Robertson, also a nephew of Howell, writes in a letter dated May 13th, 1850, "I fear that Ed's frail constitution may not be able to endure the hardships of the journey. But I suppose that he has enough Davis blood to bring him out after a while if only he can stand the first few weeks." A letter from Edward Hicks II, dated July 14th, 1854, lightly scolds his uncle for not writing more often, stating "Not having heard from you for sometime, I have concluded to write to you an see if I could not wake up "Old Rip Van Winkle"." Davis also received letters from John Duncan, a student at the University of North Carolina (UNC) Chapel Hill. One letter, written just after Duncan was accepted into the university, dated July 20th, 1855, reads "I think that Chapel Hill is a very fine institution one of the best in the south. There are near four hundred students in this place. Some of them are very fine young men but most of them are hard to beat in doing mischief. The college is situated upon the top of a very high hill sloping on all sides and there never was a prettier and better situated place for a college in the south than this place." A letter written by R. Caldwell, accompanying a letter from Master Jack Duncan and John Duncan, dated August 2nd, 1846, reads "After the excitement produced by the Mexican War that subsided, the tedium of the people of Matagorda was relieved by some of the largest parties there, give in correspondence of the marriage of the following parties. Charles Power to the Sister of Maj Genl. Sam Houston…". A letter dated Nov 24th, 1828, written by William D. Hardeman, a student at UNC Chapel Hill, describes life on campus, including "…a very shocking affair…amoung four or five of the students. They got to fighting with bouring [sic] knives and the affray ended in four being cut, two lying at the point of death, one from a cut in the forehead, the other from a cut in the right lung." Many letters are business (farming, cotton) related while some tell of deaths and births in Nashville. Some letters retain old envelopes and postage stamps. Most date from the late 1840s through the 1850s. Provenance: the estate of Sarah Hunter Hicks Green, formerly of Historic Devon Farm, Nashville, Tennessee. CONDITION: Overall good condition with some expected toning and foxing, a few with tears at fold lines. [See more photos →]

19th century oil on canvas painting after Cigniani, Joseph and Potiphar's Wife. Unsigned. Housed in a giltwood frame with gilt mat having octagonal opening. Sight – 38" H x 38" W. Framed – 52" H x 52" W. Accompanied by a file of information on its restoration and research into the history conducted by the late owner. Painting was professionally conserved at Winterthur's Art Conservation Program in 1985 with full report enclosed. According to this documentation, the painting had been in Mrs. Green's family for four generations and was originally owned by Carl C. Giers. It passed to his son Otto, whose wife, Sarah "Sallie" Hunter, "being very much a Victorian Lady, did not feel the painting was proper to hang in her house, so she relegated it to an outside shed in the back of the house and this is where it sustained most of the damage that occurred over the years." When their daughter, Hunter Giers Hicks (Mrs. Edward Dickson Hicks IV) inherited it, she brought it out and hung it in the main house. Provenance: the estate of Sarah Hunter Hicks Green, formerly of Historic Devon Farm, Nashville, Tennessee. CONDITION: Back covered with restoration board, which we have not attempted to repair. Possible repaired 4 1/2" tear in background near woman's hair, and a couple of 1/8" flakes joined by scratch at lower edge.

218 Lot 218: Rachel Jackson Portrait Miniature Rachel Jackson Portrait Miniature Lot 218: Rachel Jackson Portrait Miniature

19th century miniature portrait of Rachel Donelson Jackson (1767-1828), wife of President Andrew Jackson. Mrs. Jackson is depicted in a black dress with white sheer lace collar and bonnet with mantilla. Watercolor on ivory, housed in an oval beaded gilt metal frame (likely later) with gilt mat. Sight – 2 3/8" x 1 3/4". Framed – 3 3/4" x 3". Circa 1830. This lot is accompanied by a 1942 biographical booklet on Rachel Jackson by Nellie Treanor Stokes, published by the Ladies Hermitage Association. Rachel Jackson (1767-1828) moved with her family from Virginia to Tennessee as an adolescent (her father, John Donelson, is recognized as the co-founder of Nashville). Her first marriage ended in a divorce of controversial timing, which led to scandal during her second husband, Andrew Jackson's, presidential campaign. Jackson was elected, but Rachel died of a heart attack shortly before the inauguration. Throughout their marriage, Rachel kept a fairly low profile and spent most of her time in Nashville, running the Jacksons' home, The Hermitage. Partly as a result of that, her sudden death, and a fire at the Hermitage in 1834, very few portraits of her exist. According to the book "Andrew Jackson: A Portrait Study," by James G. Barber, only three life portraits of Rachel are known to have been painted: two oil on canvas portraits (painted in 1825 and 1827, both by Ralph E.W. Earl, both now in the collection of The Hermitage), and one miniature portrait (artist unknown). That miniature is assumed to have been destroyed in the fire. It was referred to in a Jackson letter in 1813, but in 1842, he noted he had no likeness of Rachel or himself from their early years. Only three post-mortem miniatures are mentioned in Barber's book, all based on the 1827 Earl portrait. Jackson commissoned one of them in 1830 from James B. Longacre, but Jackson angrily sent it back to Longacre when he felt it did not convey Rachel's likeness (whereabouts currently unknown). Jackson gave the second miniature portrait (circa 1830-1831), to his granddaughter, Rachel Jackson Lawrence as he lay dying (it is now in the collection of The Hermitage). That miniature is signed by Louisa Catherine Strobel, but for many years was misattributed to Anna Peale. Barber's book states that the third miniature, "now unlocated," was also misattributed to Anna Peale. In 1941, Fanny O. Walton, who acquired it from her cousin John Lawrence (son of Rachel Jackson Lawrence) offered it for sale to the Ladies Hermitage Association. But the LHHA declined to buy it, believing they already had a Peale miniature. (ref. Barber, p. 229). We believe this is that portrait. Provenance: acquired by consignor from the estate of a Jackson family member. CONDITION: 2 cracks, each running the length of the image. Frame is likely not original. Not examined out of frame.

He often gave tours of the property and has been called "the first curator of the Hermitage." 2nd item: Albumen print, 6" x 9", mounted on card, of an African American woman wearing a turban on her head and holding a fan and cane; she is depicted seated with her elbow resting on a table.

138 Lot 138: 19th C. NC  Stoneware Jar, signed G. Wolf 19th C. NC Stoneware Jar, signed G. Wolf Lot 138: 19th C. NC  Stoneware Jar, signed G. Wolf

Rare 19th century North Carolina salt-glazed stoneware pottery jar stamped "G. Wolf" on one lug handle with an additional "G. Wolf" stamp below the handle. 11 1/4? H. Attributed to Gaston B. Wolf who was born in 1837 in Orange County, North Carolina. His father, William, in North Carolina; uncle, Peter, in Washington County, Virginia; cousin, William, in Lee and Wise counties, Virginia (Wise was formed from part of Lee County in 1856); and uncle, Benjamin Phillips, in Carroll County, Tennessee were all potters. At the time of the 1860 census, Gaston was living in Orange County with his parents, four brothers and one sister. On June 21, 1861, at the age of 23, he and a younger brother enlisted in Alamance County in the 6th North Carolina Infantry, Company K (Confederate). Within 8 months an older brother also enlisted in Company K. Neither of his brothers survived the war. Gaston was free to leave the Confederate Army and return home May 22, 1865. He married Ellen Cates in Person County on November 20, 1867. Ella/Ellen/Penelope Wilson Cates was a widow with two children. It appears that at the time of the 1870 Person County census Gaston, Ellen and children were living where Ellen had lived in 1860 (family 140). Gaston’s father, William, and two of his children lived nearby (family 165). Ellen’s parents and a married brother were families 163 and 164. Both Gaston and his father were listed as "Potter" in 1870. It is not clear if they potted together nor where the pottery or potteries were located. Gaston’s father was not found in the 1880 census. If living, he would have been about 73 years of age. Gaston, Penelope (Pernalaper in census) and children were still in Person County in 1880. Gaston’s occupation was recorded as "Farming". This does not necessarily mean that Gaston no longer potted. Potters frequently referred to themselves as farmers if they farmed as well as potted. It is possible that a younger brother, George Franklin, may have potted. A jar stamped G. F. Wolf and 1887 is known and has been attributed to him. The stamp is very similar to this jar’s stamp. It is not known whether it was made while working with Gaston. George Franklin was never found living in Person County. He was, however, found in Alamance County in 1880. Some descendants believe that Gaston lived until the late 1890s (Research courtesy of Carole C. Wahler). CONDITION: Some chips noted to the base. Very faint hairline noted, approx. 2", from rim to just above one handle, does not affect integrity of jar. [See more photos →]

717 Lot 717: Thos. Jefferson: Notes on the State of VA Thos. Jefferson: Notes on the State of VA Lot 717: Thos. Jefferson: Notes on the State of VA

JEFFERSON, Thomas. Notes on the State of Virginia. Philadelphia: Mathew Carey, 1794. 4 3/4" H X 8 1/4" W (Octavo). 336 Pages. Second Edition (THE FIRST AUTHORIZED EDITION) of Jefferson's only full-length book. Original period treerain leather with red leather spine label. Previous owner signature of Edward Hicks of Devon Farm, Tennessee (1831-1894) to front pastedown in pencil. Lacks the folding map, but all other plates and illustrations intact. Widely considered the most significant book printed in America in the 18th Century. Jefferson's Notes on the State of Virginia was originally composed as a response to questions from a French diplomat. The book is a historical and statistical account of Virginia, but also provides much insight to the mind of one of America's most beloved Founding Fathers. Thomas Jefferson's views on religion, politics, natural history and slavery inadvertently established his reputation abroad as a serious scientist, thinker and a man who was a spokesman for his country. Although he never openly submitted his ideas of emancipating the slaves and returning them to a more permanent land in Congress, he did pen such ideas in this book. Note: the 1794 Carey Edition was the first authorized printing. Provenance: the estate of Sarah Hunter Hicks Green, formerly of Historic Devon Farm, Nashville, Tennessee. CONDITION: Large fold-out chart at page 134 complete, but torn at bottom right corner. Light foxing and toning to interior. Scuffing to outer boards. Well preserved overall. [See more photos →]

All are signed with monogram W. lower left except the drawing of the elf on the back of the third drawing. Biography (courtesy Askart: The Artists’ Bluebook): Wildner was born in Germany but moved to Detroit with his family as a child and then, as a teenager, to Nashville. He served in the Army in 1944 and went on to study art briefly at the Meinzinger 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 the Nashville site now known as Cheekwood. However, the death of his parents and collapse of his marriage in the 1970’s led him to become reclusive in the last two decades of his life. Provenance: Florida collection, acquired directly from the artist. CONDITION: 3rd item has small light mark to mat. All images in excellent condition. [See more photos →]

217 Lot 217: TN Miniature Portrait of Man, Calvert TN Miniature Portrait of Man, Calvert Lot 217: TN Miniature Portrait of Man, Calvert

Oval Watercolor on ivory portrait attributed to Ebenezer Calvert (Tennessee, 1850-1924) depicting a man in his late 50s or early 60s, likely William E. Armstrong of Nashville, with white beard and receding dark hair, dressed in a gray suit with black tie and decorated white collar. Pencil inscription en verso "1878 W.E. Armstrong / E. Calvert pinxt Giers Gallery". 2 1/4" x 1 3/4". Housed in a hinged blue silk oval case. Note: William E. Armstrong (b. 1832) purchased the photography gallery owned by C.C. Giers following Giers' death in 1877, and operated it until 1883, when he leased it to Emil Koellein, James Patterson, and eventually, a third partner: Giers' son Otto. Ebenezer Calvert and his brother Peter R. Calvert (1855-1931) were born in Yorkshire England, where they studied art. They immigrated to America in the 1870s. Arriving in Nashville, they worked for several galleries before setting up their own studio in the downtown area. The brothers taught art and did oil and watercolor paintings, pastels, crayon drawings, and miniatures on ivory (source: The Tennessee Encyclopedia). Although no documentation has been found for the Calverts' employment at Giers Gallery, it is likely that they worked for Armstrong when he took over the gallery after Giers death, and this miniature may have been painted as an advertising piece, since it has descended in the Giers/Hicks family. Provenance: the estate of Giers descendant Sarah Hunter Hicks Green, formerly of Historic Devon Farm, Nashville, Tennessee. CONDITION: Very good condition. [See more photos →]

Framed – 20 1/2″ H x 17 3/8″ W. Biography (courtesy Askart: The Artists’ Bluebook): Wildner was born in Germany but moved to Detroit with his family as a child and then, as a teenager, to Nashville. He served in the Army in 1944 and went on to study art briefly at the Meinzinger 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 the Nashville site now known as Cheekwood. However, the death of his parents and collapse of his marriage in the 1970’s led him to become reclusive in the last two decades of his life. Provenance: Private Nashville, TN collection.
