Separate, later base 1 3/4″ H x 7 1/2″ W x 8 1/2″ D. Circa 1940.

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. Women, Biblical figures and animals were among his favored subjects, although he also produced more utilitarian items such as tombstones and birdbaths. 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. Provenance: The living estate of Dr. and Mrs. Benjamin H. Caldwell, Nashville, TN.

In our army you were detailed to do a certain job, or were on a detail. My show opens at Schmidt Bingham Gallery in New York May 24. – Carroll Cloar “. Biography (Courtesy of The Johnson Collection): Arkansas-born Carroll Cloar was known for incorporating nostalgic images from his Southern childhood, often merged with dreamlike motifs, into powerful “magic realist” scenes. 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.

During this time he also met Jackson Pollack and befriended Mark Rothko. In 1953, he went to Paris where he had his first one-man show.

Late 19th century. Biography (courtesy The Johnson Collection): New Jersey born artist Gilbert Gaul studied art with Lemuel E. Wilmarth at the school of the National Academy of Design from 1872 to 1876, and privately with the noted genre painter, J. G. Brown. He continued his training at the Art Students League during 1875 and 1876. Gaul first exhibited his work at the National Academy in 1877. In 1881, he inherited a farm in Van Buren County, Tennessee, from his mother_s family, and lived there four years to fulfill terms of the bequest. In 1885, he returned to New York though he also continued to spend time at the farm in Tennessee. Gaul gained acclaim for his illustration art and portrayals of Civil War scenes. He became a regular exhibitor at the National Academy annuals between 1877 and 1902; in 1882, he was accorded the status of full academician–the youngest artist to attain the honor. He exhibited at the 1889 Paris Exposition; the 1893 World Columbian Exposition in Chicago; and the 1902 Pan-American Exposition in Buffalo, where he was awarded medals. In 1876 Gaul made his first trip to the American West, an area for which he developed a particular affinity. He made numerous western trips in subsequent years, photographing and rendering scenes of Native Americans and the frontier, which he would later work up into paintings in his studios in New York or Tennessee. In 1890, he worked for the United States census on reservations in North Dakota. He also visited Mexico, the West Indies, Panama, and Nicaragua. An account of his travels was published in Century Magazine in 1892. In 1904, he returned to Tennessee and settled in Nashville. The decreasing interest in Civil War subjects resulted in financial hardship for Gaul. He gave private art lessons, and taught at the Watkins Institute, Nashville, and at Cumberland Female College, in McMinnville. He also spent time in Charleston, South Carolina. By 1910, he had moved to Ridgefield, New Jersey, where he continued to paint and live out his remaining years. Provenance: The living estate of Dr. and Mrs. Benjamin H. Caldwell, Nashville, TN.

Additional label with handwritten inscription "Tennessee Fine Arts Center Nashville Tenn." 5 3/8" x 7 3/4" sight, 12" x 15" framed. Biography (courtesy Askart and Michael Zellman, 300 Years of American Art): Ralph Albert Blakelock studied briefly at Cooper Union, and at the Free Academy of the City of New York. In 1867, he first exhibited at the National Academy of Design. Primarily self taught, he declined his wealthy father's offer to pay for more extensive art schooling, and in 1869, embarked on a horseback tour of the West that lasted several years. He lived with Plains Indians, painting pictures of their villages, and traveled and painted through the Rockies and the Sierra Nevadas and in San Francisco and Mexico. His western paintings were in the Hudson River style, although they were rough and more painterly. Returning to New York, he developed what became his signature expression: quiet, moody, nocturnal scenes accented with bright colors depicting light, and trees silhouetted against the sky. He had a labor-intensive technique, which was building up of multi layers of thick paint, scraping some away, and "adding more to build a complex tonality". (Zellman 420). In 1899, Blakelock had a mental breakdown. He spent the final two decades of his life in a mental institution in New York. It was only in the final few years before his death that collectors began paying substantial sums of money for his work. Provenance: The living estate of Dr. and Mrs. Benjamin H. Caldwell, Nashville, TN, exhibited, Tennessee Fine Arts Center at Cheekwood circa 1976. CONDITION: Painting: Drying cracks resulting in "alligatored" appearance to paint, 1/4" area of abrasion along perimeter of left edge.

Jefferson Davis letter to Nashville author, doctor, minister and educator Dr. John Berrien Lindsley with good retrospective content regarding the American Civil War and mention of Nashville war hero Col. Randal McGavock. In this 1 1/2 page letter and enclosed small note dated March 11, 1887 from Davis's home, Beauvoir, the former president of the Confederate States of America writes, "My dear sir, I duly received and acknowledged the beautiful and valuable volume of which you are the author. The work is to me rendered doubly dear as another one of the offerings made by woman to the cause of the south, for such it became when the southern states alone contended for the freedom and independence which the constitution was formed alone to secure and preserve. Please give my cordial thanks to Mrs. Lindsley, the sister of a hero in the war between the states, and daughter of a comrade in arms of the immortal Jackson. I trust the example you have set will be followed by other states for the commemoration of patriots who dared all for States Rights and self government, the priceless heritage which descended to us from our fathers of the Revolution. Respectfully and truly yours, Jefferson Davis." Also included is a small enclosed note marked "Private: It is a ___ solicism to term the resistance of states to coercion "a rebellion". Subjects, not sovereign, may "rebel" and the states won their sovereignty in the war of 1776. It is politically inaccurate to term ours a "civil war" which properly applies to a war between factions of one body politic, whereas ours was a war between the states united by a Federal league for enumerated purposes & therefore it was a war between states which being united by consent separated on the exercise of their reserved sovereignty. JSD." Note: the letter and note, which appear to have been penned and signed by Varina Davis, Jefferson's wife, were likely written upon receipt of Lindsley's book, The Military Annals of Tennessee, published 1886. John Berrien Lindsley's wife was Sarah McGavock, granddaughter of Randal McGavock, owner of Carnton Plantation in Franklin, Tennessee and mayor of Nashville from 1824-1825; she was the sister of Randal William McGavock, Nashville mayor (1858-1859) and CSA Colonel, killed in action while leading a counter attack at the Battle of Raymond in Mississippi in 1863. Provenance: formerly from the collection of Miss Margaret Lindsley Warden of Nashville, Tennessee.

There, he was befriended by the artist Joshua Shaw, and studied under Thomas Sully and John Neagle. Franca exhibited his work on the site of the Peale Museum with Joshua Shaw and Emanuel Leutze, and at the Apollo Gallery in New York City. He also submitted paintings to the American Art Union. In 1842, he traveled with his new wife to western Pennsylvania to decorate church altars. Then moving on to Tennessee and Kentucky, he painted portraits. He eventually settled in St. Louis, Missouri, in 1844. He became the city's most popular portrait artist. Franca founded the Western Academy of Art in 1860, but soon retired due to lung disease and died a short time later.

567 Lot 567: Fred Dennett Archive, inc. Tin Ingot Fred Dennett Archive, inc. Tin Ingot Lot 567: Fred Dennett Archive, inc. Tin Ingot

Ingot and archive originally belonging to Fred Dennett, 32nd Commissioner of the General Land Office, 1908-1913. 1st item: South Dakota tin ingot stamped "Nigger Hill", with Stephen F. Molitor, assayer mark, Deadwood, Dakota Territory. 1" H x 2" W x 1" D. 108.9 grams. Late 19th century. Note: The ingot inscription refers to a tin and gold mining area in the Black Hills of South Dakota, discovered by African Americans. Author Hyman Palais explained the origin of the name of the "Consolidated Nigger Hill Tin Mines" in an article "Black Hills Miners' Folklore" in California Folklore Quarterly, Vol. 4, No. 3. (July, 1945), pp. 256: "Another story tells how a group of Negroes from Montana came to the Hills in the early days of the gold rush and asked some miners where they should go to work. The miners jokingly advised them to try the top of a near-by hill, the least likely spot they could think of. Much to the surprise of everyone, luck crowned their efforts, and these Negroes found more gold in this out-of-the-way place… than many of the gulch miners had discovered below." The area was also found to have the largest deposit of tin in North America, so much so that it also became known as "Tinton". Stephen Molitor came from a family of assayers. He went into business with his father around 1858 in San Francisco and then worked as a traveling assayer, arriving in South Dakota by 1885. There he joined with others to form the American Tin Mining Company (for which he served as assayer). 2nd item: Alaska-Yukon-Pacific Exposition Seattle 1909 diploma, signed by J. E. Chilberg, President of the Alaska-Yukon-Pacific Exposition, and others, dated October 16th, 1909, awarded to Fred Dennett, Comissioner, General Land Office, "for Collaborator for Exhibit of Valuable Services Rendered". Diploma features engraved vignettes of men fishing, a lumber yard, a miner using a hydraulic jet below a female representation of the exhibition holding minerals, and portraits of a Japanese woman holding a model of a ship and an American woman with a model train (symbolizing a meeting of East and West). Gilt exhibition seal lower center. 15 5/8" H x 19 7/8" W. 3rd item: Holton-Arms School Washington, D.C. diploma, signed by Jessie Moon Holton, dated May 29th, 1915, awarded to Dorothy Dixon Dennett, "who has satisfactorily completed the General Course of study proscribed by this school". 14 3/4" H x 19 5/8" W.

An archive of signed letters and autographs relating to John Berrien Lindsley as chancellor of the University of Nashville. The archive includes interesting content related to higher education in Tennessee (current institutions that can trace their roots to the University of Nashville include Vanderbilt Medical School, Peabody College, Montgomery Bell Academy, and University School of Nashville). 1st item: 1855 ALS, educator and future Confederate General Alexander P. Stewart to John Berrien Lindsley regarding Lindsley's plan to add a fourth department to the University of Nashville, to be called the Scientific School (for Mathematics and Engineering and for Chemistry). Stewart, who was born in Rogersville, TN and was a professor of mathematics at Cumberland University and the University of Nashville prior to the Civil War, gives advice on the organization of such a department and structuring of the professorships.

Stewart to Lindsley, written from Lebanon, TN, discussing various schools around the state. Includes mention of proposed female institutes at Murfreesboro, McMinnville and Manchester; plans by Cumberland University to establish law schools in Clarksville and Jackson; mention of the Masons dissolving their relationship with a college in Clarksville; and "I learn that the University at Knoxville is declining, only some 40 or 50 students. Perhaps the sooner all our colleges go by the board, the better: there may then be a possibility of establishing ONE that will be permanent." 3rd item: 1851 ALS from Robert Jefferson Breckenridge of Kentucky to John Berrien Lindsley, declining Lindsley's invitation to relocate, presumably for career purposes: "Nashville bears a high character abroad for hospitality, refinement, and every advantageof high social intercourse… a most pleasant place for a man with a large income to reside, but not much of a place for a young man who has his own way to hew in the world to settle in… it would not be at all prudent for me to select Nashville [over St. Louis]." Breckenridge, who served briefly as president of Jefferson College in Pennsyvania, was named superintendent of public education in Kentucky, and was so successful that he came to be known as the father of Public Education in Kentucky. 4th-7th items: Four J. B. Lindsley signed Nashville bank cheques, with amounts payable to Percy Warner, Dr. Henry Holton or Horton, Annie Lindsley, and Baxter Smith, dated 1885-1897.

Mid/late 18th century. Provenance: East Tennessee collection, acquired from an estate. Note: According to the Louisa County Historical Society, "Louisa County, VA was formed in 1742 when the population was large enough to support a courthouse. The county separated from Hanover County and was named after Princess Louisa, the daughter of King George II of England. Louisa County began to make its mark on the new nation when Thomas Walker led an expedition from Louisa County to explore the Cumberland Gap two decades before Daniel Boone. Thousands of people continued their migration west from Louisa County over the next hundred years." Spotsylvania County was founded in 1721 and named for the Lieutenant Governor of Virginia, Alexander Spotswood. The two counties were home to many notable patriots including Patrick Henry. John Overton was among the Louisa County residents who went west. He apprenticed to an attorney in Danville, Kentucky at the age of 21 and by 1789 had come to Nashville. There he made his fortune as a judge, land owner, and advisor to his friend President Andrew Jackson. Overton was a co-founder of the city of Memphis and the builder of Traveller's Rest, a historic Federal home now open to the public in Nashville, TN. Provenance: Private Knoxville, TN collection.

40 Lot 40: Diary of Far East Travels 1924-1944 Diary of Far East Travels 1924-1944 Lot 40: Diary of Far East Travels 1924-1944

Travel diary scrapbook of Fred Satterfield, of the National City Bank of New York, Far East Division, documenting his time in China and Japan in 1924 when he was sent by the bank to Tianjin (Tientsin), China. The opening page of the scrapbook reads "By way of explanation of this book, it occurred to me that since I would probably be stationed at, or go through many Far Eastern cities, it would be interesting to keep a sort of photographic diary of my travels. In other words, a photograph album with the usual titles enlarged on, so that a stranger could go through the book and not have to have each picture explained, as is usually the case". Satterfield's placement in Tianjin afforded him the opportunity to witness firsthand the armies of Zhang Zuolin, referred to by the American Press as Marshal Chang Tso-lin, Tuchun (Warlord) of Manchuria, fighting in the vicinity of Tianjin. Photographs include one depicting "Chang's" soldiers entering the city of Tianjin, one documenting soldiers on the march, and two of soldiers behind barricades. Of the fighting, Satterfield states, "the guns could be heard plainly in Tientsin [Tianjin]". The scrapbook also includes three photographs documenting the executions of two individuals, one by beheading and two before and after an execution by shooting. Satterfield writes "The war-lords are absolute in their power and their word is law for this particular district…The number of executions per day was often alarming…The easiest way for the 'Generals' to dispose of their rivals is to silence them for ever". The majority of the photographs, with detailed explanations, include significant locations and monuments within China and Japan including photographs of the Forbidden City, and photographs of Satterfield and his family, friends, and colleagues. Scrapbook is hardback format, covered in brown paper, with photographs glued double-sided to off white paper. Scrapbook – 13 1/2" H x 8 3/4" W x 2 3/4" D. Early/mid 20th century. Provenance: Private collection, Knoxville, TN. CONDITION: The cover of the scrapbook has been repaired with clear packing tape.

Archive of 5 Letters and Documents with signatures / autographs of Confederate Generals Alexander P. Stewart, Joseph Wheeler, and William Bate (all post-war), related to John Berrien Lindsley, prominent Nashville Tennessee author and educator. 1st item: Autographed letter, signed, former Confederate General Alexander Peter Stewart to Lindsley on lined paper, dated Aug. 24, 1886, Oxford Mississippi (Stewart, born in Rogersville, Tenn., went on to serve as Chancellor of the University of Mississippi). Stewart writes "Send the book here, unless I notify you to contrary before it is ready. Cowper wrote 'but War's a game which, were their subjects wise, kings would not play at.' In imitation, the first sentence of my paper is 'War is a fearful game for kings or peoples to play at'. It needs the preposition at the end. In this country it is not kings but the people who 'play at' war. I trust the finanical results will fully meet your expectations. I do not know where I shall go, yet, now how employ myself. Think I have served my time in schools." (Stewart fought in all the major battles of the Army of Tennessee: Shiloh, Perryville, Stones River, Chickamauga, Chattanooga, the Atlanta Campaign, Franklin, Nashville, and the Carolina Campaign. Stewart left the University of Mississippi in 1886; that same year, Lindsley's book, "The Military Annals of Tennessee," was published). One sheet, front and back. 2nd item: ALS, former Confederate General Joseph Wheeler to John Berrien Lindsley on lined and embossed paper, dated June 11, 1884, Wheeler, Alabama, regarding Lindsley's request for "a condensed statement of the table of battle, or skirmishes" related to his upcoming book. Wheeler asks for clarification and agrees to "furnish you the rosters of several regiments." There is also mention of the cost of large vs. small engravings and a small newpaper clipping about Wheeler. Two pages. 3rd item: Document signed, former Confederate General Joseph Wheeler to General William Bate, dated October 14, 1898, "Dear General, It will give me great pleasure to do anything requested by you and I have a high appreciation for the Lindsley family. Since you wrote the letter I have been relieved from duty at Montauk Point and am now on duty at Huntsville. Anything I can consistently do for Mr. Lindsley will be gladly done." Typewritten with hand signature. En verso is a handwritten note, signed by Bate, "Dear Mrs. Lindsley, I here send you the reply of Gen. Wheeler to my letter sent to him at your request. Very resp. Wm. B. Bate." 4th item: DS, former Confederate General William Bate, to John Berrien Lindsley, on United States Senate letterhead, dated March 2, 1896.

William Bate. The note is also signed by J. Mac Lindsley, promising to repay Bate $100 with interest, two months after Aug. 18, 1885, at First National Bank, John Berrien Lindsley as co-signer.

After 1869, Decker moved to Virginia, six miles north of Abingdon. The pottery he operated there was located on land owned by a man named Mallicote (Mallicoat). In 1872, he established his pottery in the Nolichucky River Valley near present day Johnson City, Tennessee. For a year or so he operated in both Virginia and Tennessee. He was one of a number of potters who settled in the region during the early years of Reconstruction. He named his Chucky Valley pottery the same name that he had used in Pennsylvania, Keystone Pottery. His pottery was marketed not only in East Tennessee, but also in North Carolina, Virginia, and Kentucky. Provenance: Private Knoxville, TN collection. CONDITION: Overall excellent condition.
