Biography: French Neo-Impressionist painter Henri Martin lived most of his life in Marquayrol, near Bastide-du-Vert. He studied at the Ecole des Beaux-Arts in Toulouse and the Ecole des Beaux-Arts in Paris under Jean-Paul Laurens. He exhibited at the Salon des Artistes Francais in Paris starting in 1880, and won a medal at the 1883 Salon. A few years later, influenced by Georges Seurat and Edmond Aman-Jean, he began experimenting with pointillism, applying dots and stripes of color in order to capture the vibrant light of the South of France in his landscapes. It would become his signature style. Martin was named Chevalier of the Legion of Honour in 1896, won a gold medal at La Fete de la Federation in 1889, and in 1900 won the grand prize at the Exposition Universelle. He was named Commander of the Legion of Honour in 1914. (Source: Askart, Musee D'Orsay). CONDITION: Excellent condition. Relined. [See more photos →]

Note: The 1st Georgia Infantry regiment, also known as the 1st Georgia Regulars, was organized at Macon, Georgia in April 1861. The companies first named were twelve months' troops, a majority re-enlisting for the war, while others were mustered out when the twelve months expired. The regimental commander, Col. Charles J. Williams, died on February 8, 1862. Now led by Col. William J. Magill, the regiment served in the Army of Northern Virginia in the Eastern Theater of the American Civil War. When Magill was wounded at Antietam, being part of Gen. G.T. Angerson's brigade, the command developed to Cpt. Richard A. Wayne. The 1st Georgia was transferred to the Department of South Carolina, Georgia and Florida in early 1863. In Gen. George P. Harrison's brigade it participated in the Battle of Olustee. When Magill retired on September 3, 1864, Wayne was named as his successor. The regiment was surrendered along with Joseph E. Johnston's army at Bennett Place in North Carolina on April 26, 1865. Biography: Colonel Tomlinson Fort (1839-1910) was born in Milledgeville, Georgia, to Dr. Tomlinson Fort (1787-1859) and Martha Low Fannin (1804-1883). Tomlinson Fort graduated from Oglethorpe University in 1857, and moved to Savannah, Georgia to practice law. Fort returned to his hometown to care for his father's estate in 1859. At the beginning of the Civil War, Fort joined the 1st Georgia Infantry regiment and served throughout the war. Fort's two brothers also served in the war; Lieutenant John Fort joined the 1st Georgia Infantry regiment and Dr. George Washington Fort was a surgeon, 53rd Regiment, Georgia Infantry. Fort was wounded five times during the Civil War including Malvern Hill, Second Manassas, and John's Island, SC. Tomlinson Fort was captured in late 1864 until the remainder of the war. Fort moved to Chattanooga in 1865, and though he came to the city with very little, he quickly found work, and by the mid-1870's, was one of Chattanooga's leading businessmen. Fort served as city attorney, city recorder and served on the Board of Public Works before being elected Mayor in 1876. Fort's election to the office marked a turning point for the city, as he was the first ex-confederate elected mayor and was able to improve the city's financial status.

329 Lot 329: William Shakespeare Burton oil, King of Sorrows William Shakespeare Burton oil, King of Sorrows Lot 329: William Shakespeare Burton oil, King of Sorrows

"King of Sorrows," a recently rediscovered oil on canvas by William Shakespeare Burton (United Kingdom, 1830-1916). The large scale painting, considered one of the painter's most important paintings, was exhibited at the Royal Academy in London in 1897. It depicts Jesus Christ just prior to his crucifixion, seated in a prison cell atop a Middle Eastern rug and stone bench, with a crown of thorns atop his head and rope bound hands, attired in a red robe having a sword as a closure and holding a whip, a cat-o-nine-tails to his right, with crushed grapes, spears and a Roman eagle banner finial at his feet. Inscription on stone seat reads in Latin, "Rex ludaeorum" or "Jesus the Nazarine, King of the Jews". A circa 1896 photograph of Burton working on this painting was pictured in a 1906 article in the English Illustrated Magazine by John S. Purcell, titled "A Veteran Artist: Mr. William Shakespeare Burton" (Vol. 35, pp. 238-48). A copy of page 238, showing the painting, accompanies this lot. This painting was also referenced but listed as "untraced" in a recent National Portrait Gallery catalog entry for Burton's self portrait, in the NPG collection. However, by the 1980s this painting had surfaced in the collection of The World Museum in Tulsa, Oklahoma. When that museum closed in the early 1980s, the painting was sold to businessman and collector Larry Casey of Jackson, Tennessee, where it remained until being consigned to this auction as part of his estate. Housed in a gilt wood carved and cove molded frame with an oak leaf design to the outer edge and leaf and dart design to the inner edge. Unsigned. Sight – 53 1/2" H x 43 1/2" W. Framed – 64 1/8" H x 54 1/8" W. Biography: William Burton Shakespeare was an English genre and historical painter of the Victorian era. His grandfather was a printer and his father William Evans Burton, was a comic actor and playwright, who gained popularity in the United States. As an only child, Burton worked at copying prints as a teenager. He later studied at King's College and the Royal Academy School, where he won a gold medal in 1852 for a painting depicting Samson and Delilah. He is primarily remembered for his work "The Wounded Cavalier" which was exhibited at the Royal Academy in 1856 and was considered as his only participation with the Pre-Raphaelite movement of the 1850s. In his later years Burton mainly painted religious subjects. He lived and painted into his 80's. Provenance: The Estate of Larry Casey, Jackson, Tennessee. CONDITION: Canvas relined. Abrasions/rubbing to canvas upper left and right center margin. Scattered minor abrasions to the frame. [See more photos →]

President Harry Truman noticed when he moved in that the White House was quite dilapidated, and pressed Congress for funds to refurbish the mansion. In the House of Representatives, the White House renovation was overseen by the Public Works Committee, on which sat first-term Congressman Gerald Ford. Truman gave Ford and other committee members a personal tour of the White House, pointing out its defects. What Ford remembered most, however, "was when he took us into the Oval Office and I saw that little sign on his desk: 'The Buck Stops Here'. I thought, Well, that's a good description of a President's job". The three-year project included tearing down all but the exterior walls and rebuilding everything within. In the process, workers found charred lumber from the burning of the White House in 1814. Clearly these structurally unstable pieces could not remain. Instead, they were removed and sold to the public as souvenirs, as directed by the Commission on the Renovation of the Executive Mansion. In March of 1952, a small ceremony marked the end of the renovation and the opening of the refurbished and structurally-sound White House. Provenance: From the estate of Captain Gordon Wells, member of the Secret Service's Uniformed Division, the White House Police, from 1943 through 1967. During his tenure, Wells received mementos from sitting Presidents and First ladies of 5 administrations, from Franklin Roosevelt through Lyndon B. Johnson. CONDITION: Both artifacts in very good condition. [See more photos →]

143 Lot 143: Chair with Mount Vernon History Chair with Mount Vernon History Lot 143: Chair with Mount Vernon History

1st item: Mahogany Chippendale ribbon-back side chair, descended in the family of U.S. Chief Justice John Marshall (1755-1835) and mentioned in a family document as having been given to Marshall for his work in settling the estate of a George Washington family member. Mahogany primary, yellow pine and cedar secondary woods. Serpentine pierced crest rail over three pierced serpentine or “ribbon” form slats, each with a central pierced ellipse flanked by pierced leaves, over a trapezoidal seat; straight Marlborough front legs joined with an H-stretcher in the center and raked-back rear legs also joined by a stretcher. 15 1/2″ H x 18 1/2″ W x 21 3/4″ D. Philadelphia, circa, 1780-1800. Note: This chair bears a strong resemblance to a chair in the collection at Mount Vernon, which descended in the family of Martha Washington’s granddaughter, Martha Custis Peter, but which has a slightly different apron configuration. Ref: https://www.mountvernon.org/preservation/collections-holdings/browse-the-museum-collections/object/w-2185/. The chair in this auction is believed to be the same one referenced in a 1950s inventory list complied by Charles Boyd Coleman of Chattanooga, TN, in response to a request that Mr. W. Melville Jones (Executive Director of the Marshall-Wythe-Blackstone Ceremonies) issued to the descendants of John Marshall regarding a complete compilation of Marshall’s papers, books, pictures, etc. in celebration of the John Marshall Bicentennial Year, College of William and Mary, Williamsburg, VA, Saturday, September 25, 1954 (see attached scan). In this brief inventory, Coleman mentions “a silver gravy boat given to Marshall we understand in appreciation for helping settle estate of father of George Washington,” and “one chair which we also understand was among items given for settling Washington estate.” Research into the engraved crest on the gravy/sauce boat [sold by Case in our January, 2018 auction] linked the crest to Martha Washington’s niece, Fanny Bassett (1767-1796), who married George Washington’s favorite nephew, George Augustine Washington (1759-1793). The couple lived at Mt. Vernon until their untimely deaths, just three years apart. George Washington served as executor for the estate of his nephew George Augustine Washington (who was named after the President’s father, Augustine Washington, b. 1694-d. 1753). Provenance: The Estate of Charles Boyd Coleman, Jr., Chattanooga, TN. Descended in the family of Lewis M. Coleman Jr. II (1894-1914), son of Lewis M. Coleman Jr., son of CSA Lt. Colonel Lewis Minor Coleman (1827-1863) and Mary Ambler Marshall, daughter of James K. Marshall and granddaughter of fourth U.S. Chief Justice John Marshall (1755-1835), a friend, attorney and biographer of George Washington. Lewis M. Coleman Jr. also was related to the family of Revolutionary War General Henry Dearborn by his marriage to Julia Wingate Boyd, daughter of Annette Maria Dearborn Boyd, who was the daughter of Greenleaf Dearborn (1786-1846) and great granddaughter of Henry Dearborn (1751-1829) on the side of her mother, Pamela Augusta Gilman (1802-1880).

Biography: Albert Miller Lea (1808-1891) was born in Richland, Tennessee, a small village not far from Knoxville. He attended the United States Military Academy. He graduated fifth of 33 cadets in the Class of 1831. Due to his high class ranking, he was assigned to the engineers and posted to Fort Des Moines in the Iowa Territory, serving until his resignation in May 1836. In 1837, despite his youth, he became the Chief Engineer for the state of Tennessee. He then worked for the Federal government determining the boundary between Iowa and Missouri. From 1839 to 1840, he was an assistant engineer on the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad. He became a brigadier general in the Iowa militia and then the chief clerk for the U.S. War Department. In 1844, he earned his master's degree in engineering from East Tennessee University in Knoxville and joined the faculty as an instructor. From 1849 to 1854, was the city engineer for Knoxville, as well as managing a local glass manufacturing company. He moved to East Texas in 1855. During the American Civil War, Lea was an engineering officer in the Confederate States Army with the rank of major (later, lieutenant colonel). During the Battle of Galveston on New Year's Day 1863, his 25-year-old son, Lt. Commander Edward Lea of the Union Navy, was mortally wounded while serving on the USRC Harriet Lane. Lea himself was among the Confederate officers who boarded the captured ship, and found his son shortly before his death. After the war, Lea lived in Galveston for several years. He moved in 1874 to Corsicana, Texas, where he purchased a farm. He died of heart failure in 1891 and was buried in Oakwood Cemetery in Corsicana. The City of Albert Lea, Minnesota, is named in his honor. (For additional reading, see: "The Early Settlement of Albert Lea". Sequicentennial History. City of Albert Lea, and Upham, Warren (1920).

112 Lot 112: Folk Art O/C of Eastside Farm, WI Folk Art O/C of Eastside Farm, WI Lot 112: Folk Art O/C of Eastside Farm, WI

Late 19th century folk art oil on canvas landscape painting of Eastside Farm, the property of Captain Alexander A. Arnold of Galesville, Wisconsin. The painting depicts the Italianate Arnold mansion, designed by architect Samuel Luce and built in 1874 by Captain Arnold, and the original barn (no longer standing), with windmill and horse, carraige and driver in the background. In the foreground is a hay field, and in the middle ground, several of the farm's prized pureborn Shorthorn cattle, along with a figure of a man standing in the doorway to the barn. Later giltwood molded frame with beaded rabbet edge. Sight – 18" H x 27" W. Framed – 24" H x 33" W. Provenance: purchased circa 1970 from The Rocking Chair Antiques in Walla Walla, Washington. A 1971 letter from the proprietor, Mike Spence, included with this lot, notes that the painting was done in "about 100 years ago" and that the figure in the doorway was supposed to be "the man who built the barn and raised the cattle". The letter goes on to surmise that "it was either he or his son who did the painting". This lot includes a file of documentation on the property and on Arnold, a New York native and attorney who moved to Wisconsin and became a founding father of Trempealeau County in 1857. When the Civil War broke out, he enlisted in the 30th Wisconsin Volunteer Infantry, Company C. After the war, Captain Arnold married Mary Douglas of Jackson County (his first wife, Hattie Tripp, died prior to the war). He set aside his law career to focus on his land, and became known for his progressive farming and breeding techniques. Arnold's 50 x 50 foot New York style barn with 12 x 12 foot cupola was said to have the first upright silo constructed in the United States. Through Eastside Farm, Arnold and his son Gerald introduced Shorthorn cattle to the area and raised sheep, peas and purebred hogs. Arnold helped organize the Trempeauleau County Agricultral Society and donated the land for the county fairgrounds. When he died in 1915, he was vice president of the bank of Galesville. Decades later, Eastside Farm fell into disrepair before being auctioned in 1981. It was acquired by the Garden of Eden Preservation Society, restored and reopened to the public as a historic house museum a few years later. Provenance: The collection of internationally known ragtime pianist and historian Johnny Maddox, Gallatin, TN. CONDITION: Good condition with some light grime; minor tenting along stretcher line visible in sky area. Scattered inpainting to sky area, largest 1 1/2" L. Frame is not original to painting and has 3/4" area of molding loss along rabbet edge. [See more photos →]

Inscription lower right, "A Mademoiselle Anna M. Nelle a tout coeur en souvenir a se charmante visite. Mucha Paris le 28 12 1900". Provenance: The collection of internationally known ragtime pianist and historian Johnny Maddox, Gallatin, TN. Alfons Maria Mucha was born in Invancice, Moravia (Modern day Czech Republic), and began his career painting theatrical scenery. He did this for many years until a fire caused the business to be destroyed. He was later commissioned by Count Karl of Mikulov to decorate his residence, which led an impressed Mikulov to sponsor Muchaís formal art education. Mucha moved to Paris in 1887 where he studied art, while producing advertisement illustrations. He became an overnight sensation after producing a lithographed promotion for a play starring Sarah Bernhardt, one of the most famous Parisian actresses at the time. She signed an advertising contract with him for 6 years, and during this period the "Mucha Style" became known as "Art Nouveau". (source: alfonsmucha.org).

Companion pair of Virginia profile portraits, pencil and charcoal on paper, unsigned but attributed to Charles Burton (1782-after 1847), depicting Dr. James H. Wheatley (1798-1842) and his wife Mildred Lewis Williams Wheatley (1800-1878), seated in fancy painted Sheraton style chairs and attired in circa 1820s clothing. Pencil inscriptions, early 20th century, en verso of each, noting the name of the sitter, birth & death dates and marriage dates, as well as the recipient of the drawings, Mary Mildred Williams, from Mary Lewis Williams Wheatley's grandson, James Bowen Wheatly. Housed in the original ebonized wooden frames. Old wood backing has been removed but retained. Inscription geneaology labels retained and fixed to the back with conservation plexi-glass. Male portrait: Sight – 5 3/8" H x 4 1/2" W. Framed – 8 1/8" H x 7 1/4" W. Female portrait: Sight – 5 1/4" H x 4 3/8" W. Framed – 8" H x 7 1/8" W. Note: Dr. Wheatley (birth date uncertain, d. circa 1849) was the son of James and Mary (Martin) Wheatley and brother of Albert G. Wheatley of Culpepper County, VA. In 1824, he married Mildred Lewis Williams (1800-1878) in Lynchburg, VA. They had two children, James Howell Wheatley and James Bowen Wheatley. The couple likely moved to Middle Tennessee: 1836 Montgomery County, TN tax records list a James Wheatley, and after her husband's death around 1849, Mildred Wheatley was listed living in Clarksville, TN. Death records also list a Mildred L. Wheatly death in 1878 in Brooklyn, NY. Most of these dates correspond with the pencil inscriptions en verso. (sources: the genealogical book "Lewis from Warner Hall: The History of A Family" by Sorely; Ancestry.com Marriage, Tax and Death records). Note: Although these portraits bear some similarities to a growing body of identified works by Virginia portrait artist Silon Henkel, the biographical dates of the Wheatleys point to a Burton attribution. A similar pair of Burton-attributed portraits was sold by Case Antiques in 2015: https://caseantiques.com/item/lot-198-pair-va-charcoal-profile-portraits-attrib-charle/. Biography: London-born Charles Burton (1782-after 1847) received some training at the Royal Academy before immigrating to New York around 1817. Once in America, he abandoned oils for graphite and watercolor, and began traveling to find work between New York and Virginia. His works, which are rarely signed, are typically skilled, detailed, and finely shadowed, with the subject nearly always depicted in a "Fancy" painted chair. Burton's portraits are in several museum collections including The Museum of Early Southern Decorative Arts in Winston-Salem, North Carolina, and The Abby Aldrich Rockefeller Folk Art Center at Colonial Williamsburg. (source: the Museum of Early Southern Decorative Arts). CONDITION: Overall toning to paper on each portrait. Light scattered foxing to both, mostly to the right of the male figure, right margin. Slight losses to paper, right margin, of male figure, rubbing to right shoulder area of male figure. Abrasions and paint loss to frames. [See more photos →]

505 Lot 505: Civil War CSA Pre Battle of Bull Run Artillery Position Map Civil War CSA Pre Battle of Bull Run Artillery Position Map Lot 505: Civil War CSA Pre Battle of Bull Run Artillery Position Map

Confederate States Army hand drawn ink on paper artillery position map of the defensive line arranged by Brigadier General Philip St. George Cocke prior to The First Battle of Bull Run. Also known as the First Battle of Manassas, the battle was the first major engagement between Union and Confederate forces, fought in Prince William County, Virginia on July 21, 1861. The map details the positions of leading officers of the Army of the Potomac and the Army of the Shenandoah, (prior to their integration into Army of Northern Virginia on March 14, 1862), including Brigadier General Philip St. George Cocke, Major James B. Walton, Captain Robert M. Stribling, Captain John A. Coke (erroneously listed as "Cocke"), Captain Willis J. Dance, Captain John B. Brockenbrough, Captain Allen S. Cutts, Captain Thomas J. Kirkpatrick, First Lieutenant Alexander M. Hamilton (listed as a Captain), Lieutenant Robert F. Beckham (listed as a Captain), and Captain Coleman. The officers are identified on the map key by alphabetical letters A-N, each letter corresponding to a position with an illustrated diagram and list of artillery equipment, for example "C Genl Cocke Battery", top right of map. Each position is situated around Centreville in Fairfax County, Virginia, identified by a cluster of small buildings and trees delineating the town. Centreville is depicted at the center of the Leesburg Road, Old Road by Mill, Fairfax Turnpike, Braddocks Road, Manassas Road, and Warrenton Pike, each identified on the map. Pencil inscription reading "I send this […] you might like to have it Respect Mary A Coleman" the wife of Lewis Minor Coleman, lower left of map. 12 1/2" H x 15 3/4" W. Note: Philip St. George Cocke (1809-1861) was a brigadier general in the Confederate States Army during the first year of the American Civil War. He is best known for organizing the defense of Virginia along the Potomac River soon after the state's secession from the Union. On April 21, 1861, Cocke was appointed as a brigadier general in the service of the Commonwealth of Virginia by Governor John Letcher. He was assigned command of all state forces along the Potomac River. Three days later, from his headquarters at Alexandria, Virginia, he reported to newly commissioned Maj. Gen. Robert E. Lee (assigned on April 22 to the command of all Virginia forces) that he had only 300 men to defend against what he thought was 10,000 Union troops across the river in Washington, D.C. Cocke made his headquarters at Culpeper, Virginia, on April 27, in order to better oversee the entire line of the Potomac as well as the mustering of volunteer troops in a large part of the state. Alexandria was evacuated by Lt. Col. A. S. Taylor on May 5, despite Cocke's orders "not to abandon it without fighting, even against overwhelming numbers". Under Robert E. Lee's orders, Cocke organized a new defensive line at Manassas. Cocke may have been the first to formulate the Confederate defensive strategy of concentrating forces at Manassas and at Winchester in the Shenandoah Valley, and using the Manassas Gap Railroad to allow them to be mutually supporting. This strategy would be a decisive factor in the Confederate victory in the First Battle of Bull Run. When Virginia's state forces were consolidated with the Provisional Army of the Confederate States, Cocke was given the rank of colonel in the new CSA forces. Because of this effective demotion, Cocke was superseded in command at Manassas on May 21 by Brig. Gen. Milledge L. Bonham and took command of the 19th Virginia Infantry Regiment. Cocke was eventually assigned to the army of P. G. T. Beauregard in command of the 5th Brigade, consisting of the 8th, 18th, 19th, 28th, and 49th Virginia Infantry regiments. His brigade was initially assigned to Centreville, but in the face of advancing Union forces, withdrew behind Bull Run on July 17. On July 20 Cocke was stationed at Ball's Ford on Bull Run. In the subsequent First Battle of Bull Run on July 21, 1861, Cocke was assigned to advance against Centreville, a plan abandoned when the Federals began their flanking movement against the Confederate left. While Col. Nathan George Evans, reinforced by Brig. Gen. Barnard Bee and Col. Francis S. Bartow, opposed the enemy, Cocke's forces defended against attack in the vicinity of the Stone Bridge, with his headquarters at the Lewis house. At 2 p.m., about an hour before the arrival of Elzey, he led his brigade into action on the left with "alacrity and effect." He was promoted to brigadier general in the Confederate Army on October 21 and given command of the 3rd Brigade, 3rd Division of the Confederate Army of the Potomac. First Bull Run was Cocke's last battle. After eight months' service, during which he was promoted to brigadier general in the provisional Confederate army, he returned home, "shattered in body and mind". Exhausted from the strain, and despondent over perceived slights from General Beauregard stemming from the Battle of Manassas, Cocke shot himself in the head on December 26, 1861, at his mansion, "Belmead", in Powhatan County, Virginia.

Circa 1825 album including a sonnet penned by John Quincy Adams, 6th President of the United States.

The possibly original sonnet, unsigned but in writing identical to samples of John Quincy Adams' handwriting, is titled "A Theory of Comets To the Comet Seen at Quincy 6. October 1825 / A Sonnet". It reads "Portentous Stranger from a world unknown!/Short visitant from realms of bounle[s]s grace,/Oh! Say shall man be never taught to trace/Thy path immense around the Solar throne?/Art Thou to Mortal vision only shown/To glare, the fear and wonder of our race?/To flash and flit acro[s]s the walking pace,/Then traverse the void infinite, alone?/Me thinks thou art the Spectre of a Star:/An orb deceas'd, and disenthrall'd of day./In light, refin'd from elemental War,/And bound to regions of eternal day.–/Cease, Soul presumptuous, and enquire [sic] no more:/But, Silent Him who made these countle[s]s Worlds, adore.".

Title en verso on paper label for Sessions Hootsell American Paintings, Natchez, MS. Later giltwood frame with linen liner. Sight – 11 1/2" H x 13 1/2" W Framed – 19" H x 21" W. Provenance: the collection of Mr. and Mrs. H.R. Slaymaker, Nashville, Tennessee; the collection of Dr. Benjamin H. Caldwell, Jr., Nashville; Sessions Hootsell American Paintings, Natchez; estate of the artist. Biography: A key person in the establishment of the Old Lyme, Connecticut art colony in 1899, Henry Ward Ranger is regarded as leader of the Tonalist movement in America. He was born and raised in New York. While studying art in France, he became greatly interested in the Barbizon School of painters. A trip to The Hague, Holland, was even more influential when he met a large colony of Dutch painters called "The Hague School", whose emphasis was on Realism and Tonalism. In 1885, Ranger moved to New York City and took up easel painting, increasingly favoring oils over watercolors. Gradually his palette lightened with color and luminosity suggesting the influence of George Inness. In the summer of 1899, Ranger discovered Florence Griswold's boardinghouse in Old Lyme, Connecticut, and he eventually became the leader of the artists' colony of Old Lyme for three years. However, the prevalent style changed to Impressionism with the 1903 arrival of Childe Hassam. He became disenchanted with painting at Old Lyme with the arrival of Childe Hassam in 1903 and the subsequent influence of his Impressionist style. In protest of the plein-air, fast painting, and lightened palette and abstraction of these Impressionists, Ranger, in 1905, moved farther down the coast to Noank, Connecticut near the mouth of the Mystic River. Like many of his associates, he also maintained a studio in New York City, where he was very prominent and often lectured and wrote about art and took an active part in the art community. He was a member of the National Academy of Design and the National Arts Club. He left his estate to the National Academy of Design to establish the Ranger Fund, whose income was to purchase the works of living American artists beyond the age of forty-five. (source: Askart).

Miniature drawings approximately 3 1/2" H x 3 1/2" W. Provenance: The Estate of Ougust Delaney, Knoxville, TN. Biography (courtesy of Frederick C. Moffatt): Joseph Delaney was born in Knoxville in 1904. He and his older brother, Beauford, discovered their interest in art by drawing on Sunday School cards. In 1930, Joseph left Tennessee for New York where Beauford was also working as an artist, and enrolled in the Art Students League under the tutelage of Thomas Hart Benton and Alexander Brooke. The subject matter he found there, including the city's landmarks and its people, are the images for which he is best known. In 1986, Delaney returned to Knoxville to live and was artist-in-residence for the University of Tennessee Art Department until his death in 1991. Delaney's works are included in the collections of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, The Chicago Art Institute, The Knoxville Museum of Art, and The Smithsonian American Art Museum. Note: Delaney and Haley began a friendship sometime in the 1940's. In Haley's "Shadowland of Dreams" he writes: "Through him (his friend George Sims) I met other struggling artists like Joe Delaney, a veteran painter from Knoxville, Tennessee. Often Joe lacked food money, so he'd visit a neighborhood butcher who would give him big bones with morsels of meat and a grocer who would hand him some wilted vegetables. That's all Joe needed to make down-home soup. Another Village neighbor was a handsome young singer who ran a struggling restaurant. Rumor had it that if a customer ordered steak, the singer would dash to a supermarket across the street to buy one. His name was Harry Belafonte. People like Delaney and Belafonte became role models for me. I learned that you had to make sacrifices and live creatively to keep working at your dream. That's what living in the Shadowland is all about". Additionally, Delaney was named artist-in-residence at The University of TN, an appointment facilitated by his friend Alex Haley. CONDITION: Overall good condition with surface scuffs. Two (2) tears, largest 1", left and right of wire sketchbook spiral. [See more photos →]

Provenance: The Estate of Charles Boyd Coleman, Jr., Chattanooga, TN, by descent from the subjects, Lewis Minor Coleman and his wife, Mary Ambler Marshall Coleman (daughter of James K. Marshall and granddaughter of U.S. Chief Justice John Marshall (1755-1835); their son, Lewis M. Coleman Jr. was related to the family of U.S. War Secretary Major General Henry Dearborn (1751-1829) by his marriage to Julia Wingate Boyd, daughter of Annette Maria Dearborn Boyd. Annette was the daughter of Greenleaf Dearborn (1786-1846) and his wife Pamela August Gilman (1802-1880) and was the great-granddaughter of Gen. Dearborn on her mother's side). Biography: "Coleman, Lewis Minor, born in Hanover County, Virginia, February 3, 1827; graduated with high honors at the University of Virginia, in 1846, and became principal of the Hanover Academy; in 1859, upon the resignation of Dr. Harrison from the chair of ancient languages in the University of Virginia, Mr. Coleman, who had been a pupil of Dr. Harrison, was elected professor of Latin, and relinquished his position in the Hanover Academy to accept the same; he served in that capacity but for two years, for in 1861, at the outbreak of the Civil War, he joined the ranks of the Confederate army, in which he enlisted as captain of an artillery company which he recruited; he was promoted to the rank of lieutenant colonel of artillery in 1862; at the battle of Fredericksburg, December 13, 1862, he was severely wounded, and after three months died from his injury, March 21, 1863". (source: "The Encyclopedia of Virginia Biography:, Volume III, by Lyon Gardiner Tyler, LL. D., 1915). Artist biography: Living in Richmond, Virginia during the Civil War, Louis-Mathieu Guillaume was likely the best trained portraitist there at that time. His best known work is "Surrender of General Lee to General Grant, April 9, 1865," and it appears to have been based on photographs although he is said to have been present at the event. He also completed six equestrian portraits of Confederate leaders. He was born in Nantes, France and studied in Paris with Paul Delaroche and Pierre Lacour. In 1855, he came to the United States and spent several years in New York City and then in 1857 settled in Richmond, Virginia until 1871 when he moved to Washington DC. (Source: Askart). CONDITION: Female Portrait: extensive old repairs, including 4 tears with patches and inpainting. Significant bloom in varnish particularly to sitter's dress. Scattered brown accretions/splatter across canvas. Male portrait: Recently professionally cleaned with some areas of inpainting.

Framed – 19 1/2" H x 10 1/4" W. Provenance: The collection of internationally known ragtime pianist and historian Johnny Maddox, Gallatin, TN. Biography: Alvin Cullum York (1887-1964) was one of the most decorated soldiers of the First World War. A recipient of the Medal of Honor and the French Legion of Honour, York is considered one of the greatest of Tennessee's native sons. After the United States became involved in the war in 1917, Alvin York received his induction orders from the U. S. Government. He was twenty-nine years old and had never been more than a few miles away from home. He visited the general store of Parson Pile in order to send his military draft registration. York had reservations about serving in the war based on his religious convictions, but upon later reflection he determined it was his duty to fight in a war against the evils of the world. After basic training, Private Alvin York served at Camp Gordon, Georgia, in Company G, 328th Infantry Regiment, 82nd U.S. Army Infantry Division. Cpl. York and his company were sent to the battle lines in Western Europe. During an attack on his battalion along the Decauville rail line north of Chatel-Chehery, in the Argonne Forest of France on October 8, 1918, Sergeant Bernard Early, four non-commissioned officers and thirteen privates, including York, were ordered to penetrate behind the German lines and take out the nest of machine guns. The group was largely successful in their endeavor, capturing many Germans who were preparing a counter-attack against Americans. However, machine gun fire broke out on a ridge. Many in the unit were killed or injured. The losses put Cpl. York in charge, and he and seven infantrymen worked their way into position to take out the German guns. York encountered several Germans and attacked their position, killing many and capturing others. He "got hold" of a German Major who said that he would make the others give up.

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. (source: Askart).

From Professor Woodrow Wilson, Princeton, New Jersey, to Lewis M. Coleman, Chattanooga, TN, dated October 31, 1900. Wilson writes "My dear Louis, You may be sure I would accept the invitation of your Bar Association, were it possible for me to do so. I have a very distinct vision of the "good time" I should have, and of the pleasure of meeting and other friends, old and new. But it isn't possible. I have just made arrangements with out Trustees here to get a fifteen months' vacation, from June 1901 to September, 1902, and I hope to be during that time in England and on the Continent. I am deeply obliged to you for your part of the invitation. I forego the pleasure with unaffected reluctance; and I feel the invitation of the Association as a very substantial honour. It has at least given me the pleasure of a letter from you, and a chance to remind you that I am, With warm regard, Your sincere friend, Woodrow Wilson". 10 3/8" H x 7 7/8" W. 2nd item: TLS. One page typed letter. From Professor Woodrow Wilson, Princeton, New Jersey, to Lewis M. Coleman, Chattanooga, TN, dated November 15, 1900. Wilson is writing to respond to a letter that Coleman wrote regarding the latter writing an article on John Marshall. Wilson regrettably refuses, writing "I have an intense admiration for John Marshall, I have a real affection for you…But I simply cannot. I had to refuse the most earnest solicitations to write a paper on Marshall for The Atlantic, for the same reason that I must decline this…I am writing a serial for Harper's Magazine to run through all of next year…Write as fast as I may, I cannot more than keep ahead of the printer. I dare not stop to do anything else, least of all to prepare an address on John Marshall, which I should wish to study and perfect to the utmost…I am more than sorry, but no other conclusion is possible. In haste, Cordially and faithfully yours, Woodrow Wilson". 10 3/8" H x 7 7/8" W. Note: Wilson's series of articles for Harper's Magazine was revised and published as "A History of the American People" in 1902. 3rd item: TLS. One page typed letter. From Professor Woodrow Wilson, Princeton, New Jersey, to Lewis M. Coleman, Chattanooga, TN, dated December 10, 1900. Wilson writes "My dear Coleman, I have taken pleasure in looking over the enclosed with a good deal of care; and I think it contains some excellent material. As you yourself say, it is as it stands too much in the form of extracts to suit ordinary magazine publication. If you cared to work these extracts into a connected narrative and to collect adequate and somewhat unusual illustrations for the article, it would answer excellently well to go with others of somewhat the same nature recently published in Frank Leslie's Popular Monthly. Or if you would work it over without illustrations, but with as full biographical details as could be brought within brief compass, I should think that the Suwanee Review would welcome such a contribution. It does not fall within the scope of any others I can think of; and I have got to know the individual plans of a good many editors in recent years. I sincerely hope that you will find a place for it and that I may see copy of it when completed, and printed. With warm regards, In the always inevitable haste, Faithfully Yours, Woodrow Wilson". 10 3/8" H x 7 7/8" W. 4th item: TLS. One page typed letter. From Governor Woodrow Wilson, State of New Jersey, to Lewis M. Coleman, Chattanooga, TN, dated December 23, 1912. Wilson writes "My dear Lewis:– You may be sure that if it is possible I will look in on Charlie when I go to New York. It would be very delightful if I could. I am delightful to hear that the little chap is doing so well. In haste, with affectionate regard, Faithfully yours, Woodrow Wilson". Letters do not include envelopes. 9 3/4" H x 8" W.

Hammermill Bond watermarks, visible to surface of five (5) drawings. 8 5/8" H x 11 1/8" W. Provenance: The Estate of Ougust Delaney, Knoxville, TN. Biography (courtesy of Frederick C. Moffatt): Joseph Delaney was born in Knoxville in 1904. He and his older brother, Beauford, discovered their interest in art by drawing on Sunday School cards. In 1930, Joseph left Tennessee for New York where Beauford was also working as an artist, and enrolled in the Art Students League under the tutelage of Thomas Hart Benton and Alexander Brooke. The subject matter he found there, including the city's landmarks and its people, are the images for which he is best known. In 1986, Delaney returned to Knoxville to live and was artist-in-residence for the University of Tennessee Art Department until his death in 1991. Delaney's works are included in the collections of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, The Chicago Art Institute, The Knoxville Museum of Art, and The Smithsonian American Art Museum. Note: Delaney and Haley began a friendship sometime in the 1940's. In Haley's "Shadowland of Dreams" he writes: "Through him (his friend George Sims) I met other struggling artists like Joe Delaney, a veteran painter from Knoxville, Tennessee. Often Joe lacked food money, so he'd visit a neighborhood butcher who would give him big bones with morsels of meat and a grocer who would hand him some wilted vegetables. That's all Joe needed to make down-home soup. Another Village neighbor was a handsome young singer who ran a struggling restaurant. Rumor had it that if a customer ordered steak, the singer would dash to a supermarket across the street to buy one. His name was Harry Belafonte. People like Delaney and Belafonte became role models for me. I learned that you had to make sacrifices and live creatively to keep working at your dream. That's what living in the Shadowland is all about". Additionally, Delaney was named artist-in-residence at The University of TN, an appointment facilitated by his friend Alex Haley.

Archive of nineteen (19) documents related to William Gibbs McAdoo (1863-1941), 46th United States Secretary of the Treasury and United States Senator from California. 1st-16th item: Sixteen (16) TLS from William Gibbs McAdoo, dated 1911-1918. Many of the letters pertain to Woodrow Wilson's 1912 and 1916 presidential campaigns. Four letters on Secretary of the Treasury stationary, one letter on Director of General Railroads stationary. 1st item: TLS. One page typed letter. From McAdoo, Counselor at Law, New York, NY, to Lewis M. Coleman, Chattanooga, TN, dated November 4, 1911. Marked Personal, McAdoo writes "My dear Coleman:- I have your kind telegram, to which I replied that I doubted if I could make a speech at Chattanooga, but I shall let you know within a few days whether or not it can be accomplished. I am anxious to stop there for a few hours, anyway, to talk to you and other friends about Governor Wilson, and see if it will not be possible to harmonize the unhappy political condition in the State upon a Presidential candidate, at any rate. It was a pleasure to hear from you again, and I hope for the greater pleasure of seeing you soon. Believe me, with warm regards, Very sincerely yours, WG McAdoo". Note: In July 1911 Wilson brought William Gibbs McAdoo and Edward Mandell House in to manage the campaign. 2nd item: TLS. Two page typed letter. From McAdoo, Counselor at Law, New York, NY, to Lewis M. Coleman, Chattanooga, TN, dated November 13, 1911. The letter mostly discusses then Governor of New Jersey Woodrow Wilson's chances at obtaining the Democratic nomination for the Presidential election of 1912, stating "I am sure that Governor Wilson stands the best chance of any other man of the Democratic nomination, and I am more sure that he is the one Democrat who can be elected if nominated". 3rd item: TLS. One page typed letter. From McAdoo, Counselor at Law, New York, NY, to Lewis M. Coleman, Chattanooga, TN, dated November 18, 1911. McAdoo begins the letter by expressing his hope that he will be able to visit Chattanooga in the early part of December but requests that Coleman not make any announcements yet. Elaborating more on Wilson's efforts to obtain the Democratic nomination for President, he writes "I think as time passes, the true proportions of Wilson and [Governor Judson] Harmon will be more clearly defined, with the advantage enormously in favor of Wilson. When I speak in Chattanooga I shall try to make the situation clear and put at rest a number of false and malicious statements about Governor Wilson circulated by his enemies, of course with no other purpose than to injure him. The mendacity to which they resort in representing Governor Wilson as favoring the recall of judges, is one of the most audacious of their falsehoods. The Governor admirably expressed his views about judicial recall long before President Taft issued his veto of the Arizona statehood bill". He suggests to Coleman two upcoming magazines in which articles about Wilson will appear, stating "Everything is going along splendidly, and I think the Governor is growing in strength every day". McAddo includes a handwritten note written along the left margin of the paper, reading "Shall send you some most encouraging figures in a few days about the New Jersey vote. Gov. Wilson actually carried the state by about 10000 in the assembly vote". Note: Judson Harmon, then Governor of Ohio, was one of the leading contenders hoping to receive the Democratic nomination for the Presidential election of 1912. 4th item: TLS. One page typed letter. From McAdoo, Counselor at Law, New York, NY, to Lewis M. Coleman, Chattanooga, TN, dated November 18, 1911. The letter, written on a train, mentions his impending visit to Knoxville and Chattanooga, stating "I shall spend Saturday in Chattanooga, and would suggest that you arrange for a conference with such party leaders in the Southern Division of East Tennessee as you think will help the cause [Wilson obtaining the Democratic nomination]. I notice that Harmon is trying to organize in the State and certainly a vigorous effort should be made in Governor Wilson's behalf". 5th item: TLS. One page typed letter. From McAdoo, Counselor at Law, New York, NY, to Lewis M. Coleman, Chattanooga, TN, dated December 3, 1911. The letter discusses McAdoo's future travel plans to Tennessee with a brief note about Wilson's campaign reading "The sentiment for Governor Wilson throughout the country continues to grow, and I feel more than ever confident of his nomination. You have, of course, seen the official announcements of the result of the vote in New Jersey. The total vote on the Assembly ticket throughout the State showed that the Democrats carried it by a majority of more than 2,000. Last year, when Governor Wilson was elected, the Democratic majority on the total Assembly vote was about 14,000. I hope that the [Woodrow Wilson] Club is growing in numbers and influence, and that all factions of Tennessee may happily unite upon Governor Wilson. Very sincerely yours, WG McAdoo". McAdoo includes a handwritten note at the end of the letter about a friend of Coleman's that he saw in Washington. 6th item: TLS. One page typed letter. From McAdoo, Counselor at Law, New York, NY, to Lewis M. Coleman, Chattanooga, TN, dated December 12, 1911. The letter discusses McAdoo's future travel plans to Tennessee with a brief note about Wilson's campaign reading "Keep up the fight for the Governor. Interest in him is growing every day, and I do not believe it is going to be possible for his enemies to defeat his nomination. Always, with kindest regards, Very Sincerely yours, WG McAdoo". 7th item: TLS. One page typed letter. From McAdoo, Counselor at Law, New York, NY, to Lewis M. Coleman, Chattanooga, TN, dated December 22, 1911. The letter discusses McAdoo's future travel plans to Tennessee with a brief note about Wilson's campaign reading "The prospects grow brighter all the time for Governor Wilson. Don't let any pessimistic attac[k] disturb you. I wish I could have a long talk with you about the situation, and am looking forward with great pleasure to seeing you soon. Remember me to [William Little] Frierson and all my other friends in Chattanooga, and believe me, with best wishes for Christmas and the New Year, Sincerely your friend, WG McAdoo". 9 3/4" H x 8" W. Note: William Little Frierson (1868-1953) was an American lawyer, judge, and politician. During his career he served as the 16th United States Solicitor General (1920-1921), United States Assistant Attorney General (1917-1920), and mayor of Chattanooga, Tennessee (1905-1907). 8th item: TLS. One page typed letter. From McAdoo, Counselor at Law, New York, NY, to Lewis M. Coleman, Chattanooga, TN, dated January 20, 1912.

Coleman, Chattanooga, TN, dated April 4, 1912. McAdoo writes "Mr dear Coleman:- I have your letter of the 29th ultimo, an am very sorry to hear of the mix-up in Tennessee. It would appear, from what you tell me that there will be contesting delegations from Tennessee. My own idea is that, if the so-called "Regular" are fighting Governor Wilson, as I understand they are, Governor Wilson's friends ought to support the independent organization, which, as I understand it, is supporting him. In the final line-up, I think this course ought to be adopted. However, you are on the ground and your view would go very far with me. The victory in Wisconsin the other day, where we had our first chance for a clean, straightforward fight with the opposition, is highly encouraging, and I hope it will help you in Tennessee. Very Sincerely yours, WG McAdoo". 11th item: TLS. One page typed letter. From McAdoo, Counselor at Law, New York, NY, to Lewis M. Coleman, Chattanooga, TN, dated May 6, 1912. The letter, marked Personal, reads "My dear Coleman:- I hope that you won't be discouraged by the result of the primaries in Massachusetts, Georgia and Florida. Col. Gray, of the Atlanta Journal, tells me that fully $100,000. was spent by the opposition to defeat Governor Wilson in Massachusetts only 30,000 people voted in the primary, where-as the total Democratic vote in the state is more than 100,000. I am sure Governor Wilson is the second choice of both the Florida and Georgia delegations and also of the Massachusetts delegation…The convention is going to settle this question. I am certain that when the deliberative body looks at the whole situation squarely in the face and comes to a conclusion, that conclusion will be Governor Wilson. Always, with warm regards, Sincerely yours WG McAdoo". 12th item: TLS. One page typed bifolium. From McAdoo, Secretary of the Treasury, Washington, D.C., to Lewis M.

From McAdoo, Secretary of the Treasury, Washington, D.C., to Lewis M. Coleman, Chattanooga, TN, dated June 3, 1916. McAdoo begins the letter by referring to the 1916 Democratic National Convention in St. Louis, MO, stating that while it was unfortunate that Coleman would not be able to attend he has "no doubt that the country will endorse the President by a great vote". Note: The 1916 Democratic National Convention was held at the St. Louis Coliseum in St. Louis, Missouri from June 14 to June 16, 1916.

And they seem to be constantly at it. I have thought it possible that China might be quietly forming an army that would enable her to assert herself a little later…It has, to my mind, seemed so evident that they [are] maneuvering to get a strong hold on China in the time of her weakness, that would enable them to take away her independence and place her under a protectorate later. Of all the governments, China has been led to have a greater regard for the United States. This [regard] was greatly strengthened by the magnanimous handling of the Boxer Indemnity [Scholarship] fund…if Our Government would promptly recognize the New Republic, I have no hesitancy in saying that the Chinese would simply be capacious, in their affection for our Country. And the Chinese Republic is here to stay…One day China will have an army–one that in numbers and discipline, can handle any other known military organization…". He also writes of the impending 1912 Presidential election, stating "The time is near when our President will be elected–The Election will all be over when you shall receive this,–and it will be President Wilson…I was delighted at Mr. [William Jennings] Bryan's action, and thought it thoroughly characteristic, and believe that in him and President Wilson we have two men who mean much to future good government in the United States". As personal note, Rankin request for Coleman to "Take my place in cleaning up Chattanooga. You can do what I couldn't. With–may I say–love, and best wishes, I am–Sincerely–Chas. W. Rankin" with additional typed note reading "Care of University of Soochow, Soochow, China". Also includes TLS from Joseph Patrick Tumulty (1879-1954), Private Secretary of President Wilson, to Coleman, dated March 21, 1913.
