Signed in pencil lower right and titled lower left. Housed under glass in an ebonized and molded giltwood frame with black mat. Sight – 16" H x 12" W. Framed – 22" H x 18" W. Circa 1939. Note: This is considered one of Cloar's most important, and scarce, lithographs. One is in the collection of the Philadelphia Museum of Art and another was exhibited in the 2014 exhibit of Cloar Lithographs at the Georgia Museum of Art. It is the first work (and one of the few lithographs) set to poetry in the book "Second Sight: Poems for Paintings by Carroll Cloar" by Dabney Stuart (University Of Missouri Press, 1996, ref. p.3). Biography: Carroll Cloar was known for incorporating nostalgic images from his Southern childhood, often merged with dreamlike motifs, into powerful magic realist scene, and noted that literature, particularly by Southern Gothic writers such as William Faulkner or Eudora Welty, influenced his artistic approach. 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 upon his return, he was awarded a Guggenheim traveling scholarship to fund an extended sojourn to Central and South America. 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.

Kelly, Virginia Historical Society): "Portraitist Samuel M. Shaver was born in Sullivan County, the son of David Shaver and Catherine (Barringer) Shaver. He may have been influenced by William Harrison Scarborough (1812-1871), a native-born Tennessee artist, four years Shaver's senior, who did portraits of Shaver's relatives. Shaver's earliest known painting dates to 1845, but he was probably painting before that time. For the next quarter-century, he was East Tennessee's standard portraitist. In 1851 Shaver was professor of drawing and painting at the Odd Fellows Female Institute in Rogersville. In 1852 he advertised in Greeneville and Knoxville papers; for several years thereafter his whereabouts are unknown. The death of his first wife in January 1856 recalled him to Rogersville, where he remained until the Civil War. At the outset of the war, pro-Confederate Shaver moved to Knoxville, where he became one of the founders of the East Tennessee Art Association. The association commissioned him to do portraits of fifteen Confederate leaders and generals, presumably from photographs. None of the portraits have been located, and perhaps they were never painted. From 1863 to 1868 Shaver lived and worked near Russellville. About 1868 he joined his mother-in-law and family in Jerseyville, Illinois, near St. Louis, where he continued painting. He died June 21, 1878." CONDITION: Canvas adhered to paperboard.

151 Lot 151: Augusta Savage Plaster Sculpture, "Gamin" Augusta Savage Plaster Sculpture, "Gamin" Lot 151: Augusta Savage Plaster Sculpture, "Gamin"

Augusta Christine Fells (Moore) Savage (American, 1892-1962) plaster sculpture with bronze patina titled GAMIN along front edge, depicting a young African American male with a tilted cap and wrinkled shirt. Signed “Savage” vertically in rectangle on the backside. Created circa 1929. 9″ H x 5 3/4″ W x 4 3/8″ D. Biography (adapted from The Johnson Collection): Augusta Savage was a leading artist of the Harlem Renaissance. One of fourteen children born to a rural Florida preacher, she moved to New York in 1921 with less than $5 to her name to pursue the study of sculpture at the Cooper Union. Her skill in creating portrait busts of African Americans earned her praise, but she was denied admission to a women’s summer art program in France because of her race — an injustice that provoked national headlines. Her first “Gamin” sculpture was created in 1929 and was “a critical work not only to Savage’s career, but also as an embodiment of the Harlem Renaissance’s mission. The representation of the solemn, sensitive youth expressed the inherent dignity of an African American identity that many black artists sought to promote. Here, Savage captures an arrested moment, a sense of true immediacy; the child’s glance feels natural and uncontrived. While the subject is presumed to be her nephew, Ellis Ford, Gamin was conceived as a type rather than a portrait, representing one of the city’s countless street urchins. The critical and commercial success of Gamin catapulted Savage’s reputation far beyond Harlem art circles. The breakthrough sculpture garnered the attention of patrons and at last earned her a fellowship through the Julius Rosenwald Foundation to study in Paris. She arrived there in the autumn of 1929 and connected with fellow African American expatriates like Henry O. Tanner, Nancy Prophet, and Hale Woodruff. In late 1931, in the midst of the Great Depression, Savage returned to Harlem, where she concentrated on teaching and advocacy.” She established the Savage Studio of Arts & Crafts in 1932 and taught at the Harlem Community Arts Center and the Harlem Artists Guild, inspiring many future African American Artists. Provenance: private California collection, by descent from the estate of Clara D’Agostino, New York. CONDITION: A couple of shallow chips to hat brim, one to nose and another to the chin. All have been touched up with a blue color paint. Fleabite to one eyebrow and along the right side base edge. Scratching to the base. [See more photos →]

152 Lot 152: William Edmondson Sculpture, Lady With A Book William Edmondson Sculpture, Lady With A Book Lot 152: William Edmondson Sculpture, Lady With A Book

William Edmondson (American/Tennessee, 1874-1951) “Lady with a Book,” carved limestone sculpture depicting a standing woman with short curly hair wearing a dress with bustle, holding a book in her left hand, her right arm bent upward at her waist. 12″ H x 3 1/2″ W x 7″ D. Provenance: the estate of Leah Levitt, Long Island, New York. While it is unknown exactly when or where Mrs. Levitt and her late husband, David Levitt, acquired this sculpture and the Edmondson “Critter’ sculpture in the following lot (#153), both have been in their collection for decades. (The “Lady with a Book” can be seen in the background of several of the Levitt family’s photographs taken in the late 1950s-early 1960s). It is possible Mr. Levitt became familiar with Edmondson, or at least with Edmondson’s work, in the 1940s when in preparation for his work in the Armed Services, he (Levitt) attended French Language training at Vanderbilt University in Nashville. By that time, William Edmondson was well known in his hometown of Nashville and beyond, having become the first African American artist to receive a solo exhibition at the Museum of Modern Art in 1937. Edmondson was born in Davidson County, Tennessee, the son of freed slaves, and worked most of his life in Nashville 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 a chisel, and he claimed divine inspiration for the works produced during his 17-year art career. In the 1930s, his work caught the attention of Professor Sidney Hirsch, who worked at Peabody College in Nashville, located just a few blocks from where Edmondson lived (and adjacent to the Vanderbilt campus). Professor Hirsch is credited with introducing Edmondson to well-connected arts patrons Alfred and Elizabeth Starr and Harper’s Bazaar photographer Louise Dahl-Wolfe. Wolfe’s now-famous photographs of Edmondson and his yard full of limestone sculptures brought him to the attention of the New York art world and gained him the acquaintance of Alfred Barr, Jr., director of the Museum of Modern Art, resulting in the landmark 1937 exhibit. Although Edmondson’s earliest work was more utilitarian in nature, such as tombstones and birdbaths, as his style matured his subject matter grew to include female figures (frequently based on women he knew from his community), Biblical figures, and various animals. PRE-APPROVAL IS REQUIRED TO BID ON THIS LOT. PLEASE CONTACT CASE ANTIQUES, INC. AT THE KNOXVILLE GALLERY FOR DETAILS. 865-558-3033 or BID@CASEANTIQUES.COM. CONDITION: Overall very good condition.

Best known for his depictions of the Tennessee Walking Horse, Streeter also created scores of other images using wrapped and twisted wireÉBy the time of his death in 1998, Streeter had gained national exposure. He participated in the National Black Arts Festival in 1990, and his work attracted collectors from around the United States. Born in 1919 in Wartrace, Tennessee, Streeter moved with his family to what would later become a Tennessee Walking Horse farm. At the time, owners were still training their mixed thoroughbreds to prance in front of buggies. The oldest of six brothers, he learned the horse grooming and training business from his father. When the first Walking Horse Celebration was held in Wartrace, Streeter was there to observe the high-stepping front legs and sliding, low-slung back legs that created the characteristic rocking gait. After the Walking Horse Celebration moved to its current home in the county seat of Shelbyville, Streeter took special pride in the fact that African American trainers helped develop the Walking Horse style and that champion horse "Strolling Jim" was from Wartrace."

592 Lot 592: Portrait of Gov. Jonathan Belcher, engraved by Faber Portrait of Gov. Jonathan Belcher, engraved by Faber Lot 592: Portrait of Gov. Jonathan Belcher, engraved by Faber

Important c. 1734 mezzotint portrait of Jonathan Belcher, the Colonial Governor of Massachusetts and founder of the College of New Jersey, now Princeton University; engraving by John Faber the Younger (British, 1684-1756) after the now-lost painting by Richard Phillips. Over the subject's left shoulder is a view of Beacon Hill and its environs, derived from a circa 1723 engraving by William Burgis. Belcher is depicted standing in curly white wig and formal coat, holding his commission, with the royal seal (lower right) and the Belcher family arms (center, lower margin). Old Bowling Green, KY framer's business card taped to back of frame. Housed under glass in an ebonized frame with gilt rabbet edge. Sheet – 9 3/4" H x 13 7/8" W. Framed – 16" H x 12 1/2" W. Note: Jonathan Belcher (1682-1757) was a third-generation descendant of an early settler of the Massachusetts colony (Andrew Belcher). He became a prosperous merchant and was colonial governor of the British colonies of Massachusetts and New Hampshire from 1730-1741, and of New Jersey from 1746 until 1757, the year of his death. According to the Princeton University website, Belcher, "alienated by religious developments at his alma mater, Harvard, sympathized with the fledgling college in New Jersey. On September 14, 1748, Belcher granted a second charter, which expanded the trustees from 12 to 23, stipulating that the governor would chair the Board of Trustees and that four seats would be reserved for members of the New Jersey Council. He also added three leading Philadelphians, placating a group that had felt excluded. These appointments, by not specifying religious affiliation, made Princeton the first American college whose trustees were drawn from more than one denomination. On November 9, 1748, at the College's first Commencement, the trustees conferred on Belcher Princeton's first honorary degree. Belcher encouraged the trustees to raise funds for a college building and played a central role in its location. While Newark, Elizabeth and New Brunswick were initial favorites, Belcher threw his influence behind Princeton — 'as near the center of the Province as any and a fine situation.' Just before the College moved to Princeton, Belcher donated his 474-volume library, a full-length portrait of himself, his carved and gilded coat-of-arms, a pair of terrestrial globes, and portraits of 10 kings and queens of England. In gratitude, the trustees asked his permission to name the new building in his honor. Instead, the governor persuaded them to name it Nassau Hall, "for the glorious King William the Third of the illustrious House of Nassau," who was highly regarded by dissenters as a champion of religious freedom and political liberty. Although only six of Belcher's books have survived, he is still honored as the library's oldest benefactor. When Firestone Library was built in 1948, his coat of arms was carved in stone over the main entrance along with those of the University. Belcher's full-length portrait and the paintings of the 10 English monarchs were destroyed during the Revolution." (Source: https://princetoniana.princeton.edu/history/early-years/belcher). CONDITION: Even, overall toning. Margins trimmed to plate edge. Print has been fully adhered to a sheet of toned paper, which has been adhered to a mat board.

598 Lot 598: 19th century Portrait of Andrew Jackson 19th century Portrait of Andrew Jackson Lot 598: 19th century Portrait of Andrew Jackson

American School, 19th century portrait painting of President Andrew Jackson. Three quarter view, bust length portrait of the 7th President of the United States after the daguerreotype portrait attributed to Anthony Edwards, taken shortly before his death in 1845. Jackson is depicted wearing a dark suit and tie with white shirt. Possibly oil on paper, laid down on canvas. Spurious signature and date "G C BINGHAM 1840" near subject's upper right shoulder. Housed in a mid-19th century lemon gilt molded wood frame. Stamp en verso of frame for previous exhibition at the Tennessee Fine Arts Center at Cheekwood (Nashville, TN), paper label on stretcher for McCaughen & Burr Fine Arts and Picture Framing, 1010 Locust Street, St. Louis, MO. Sight – 17 1/2" H x 13 1/4" W. Framed – 25" H x 21" W. Provenance: the estate of Andrew Jackson scholar and author Stanley Horn, Nashville, Tennessee, by descent to consignor. In 1845, less than two months before Jackson's death, New York photographer Edward T. Anthony visited the Hermitage to photograph the ailing president (source: The Tennessean newspaper, April 16, 1845). This portrait appears to be a posthumous portrait based on Anthony's daguerreotype, with artistic liberties taken to make Jackson look slightly younger, and a retrospective date assigned. 1840 was an important year for Jackson, as it marked the Silver Jubilee of his victory at the Battle of New Orleans, celebrated by a return trip to the city for a series of ceremonial events. While George Caleb Bingham (American/Missouri, 1811-1879) is known to have painted a full length portrait of Jackson (after Thomas Sully) in 1860, no confirmed account of him painting the president in 1840 in New Orleans or anywhere else has been found, and the signature and date exhibit some fluorescence, suggesting possible later addition. Please note the Riverbank Foundation has declined to add this painting to their update of the George Caleb Bingham catalog raisonne. In our opinion, this painting is likely instead the work of a lesser known 19th century artist seeking to meet increased demand for likenesses of President Jackson following his death or near the 100th anniversary of his birthday. Stanley Horn (1889-1982) was a Nashville, Tennessee historican and author of books including THE HERMITAGE: HOME OF OLD HICKORY. His collection of Andrew Jackson papers was gifted to the Tennessee State Library and Archives upon his death. An interesting transcription of an interview with Horn can be found here: https://foresthistory.org/wp-content/uploads/2016/12/HornOHI.pdf CONDITION: Painting has had significant restoration including relining, overpainting, and revarnishing. Ultraviolet light reveals two fluorescent areas under 1/2" located on subject's right eyebrow and lower forehead area, and a small spot on subject's right eyeball, along with two small areas, each under 1", at his lower right chin and collar. Frame: Scattered abrasions and small losses, 5" area of repair to upper right side. A few small areas of re-gilding at edges. [See more photos →]
