117 Lot 117: William Edmondson Sculpture, Miss Amy William Edmondson Sculpture, Miss Amy Lot 117: William Edmondson Sculpture, Miss Amy

William Edmondson (American/Tennessee, 1874-1951), “Miss Amy,” companion sculpture to “Miss Lucy,” sold in our January 2019 auction (lot #110). Carved limestone sculpture depicting a standing woman wearing a dress with square neckline; her bountiful hair is tied back, creating negative space between her back and her hair, and she holds a book in her left hand; her long skirt reaches all the way to the integral base. 14 1/2″ H x 4 3/4″ W x 7 3/8″ D. Circa 1930/1935. Exhibited, “Will Edmondson’s Mirkels” at the Tennessee Fine Arts Center at Cheekwood (April 12 through May 21, 1964), and listed as #5 in the catalog, published by Louise Dahl-Wolfe. Additionally exhibited in “The Art of William Edmondson” at the Tennessee Fine Arts Center at Cheekwood’s exhibit, January 28 – April 23, 2000 (which traveled to four other museums including the Museum of American Folk Art in New York and the High Museum in Atlanta); listed in the exhibition catalog “The Art of William Edmondson” on page 136, figure #23. Provenance: The estate of Janet Marsh Pruitt (Mrs. Earl Pruitt) of Pennsylvania, formerly of Nashville, Tennessee. By descent from her parents, Ross and Anna Marsh. Mrs. Marsh acquired this sculpture along with “Miss Lucy” from a member of the Art Department, likely Professor Sidney Hirsch, while working for Peabody College in Nashville, just a few blocks from where Edmondson lived. Professor Hirsch (who frequently walked past Edmondson’s house) 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. Unlike many Edmondson figures acquired by Nashvillians in the days before Edmondson gained international fame, “Miss Amy” and “Miss Lucy” were not kept outside as garden sculptures. Mrs. Marsh told her family the limestone figures were always used inside as doorstops (which has helped the sculptures avoid surface bleaching and erosion). According to the 1964 “Mirkels” exhibit catalog, which quoted the Marshes, “Miss Amy” was a good member of Edmondson’s Nashville Primitive Baptist church who had been “uplifted to heaven.” Artist’s 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 artist to have a solo show at the Museum of Modern Art, and he is regarded as one of the most important self-taught artists of the 20th century. CONDITION: Overall very good condition. CONDITION: Overall very good condition with old patina. Number 1 or 7 (underlined) written in marker on underside of base. Old tape residue to underside of base. Small whitish surface scratch to top of base, about 1/4″L. Overall minor wear particularly to right side in hair (abrasions from door when used as doorstop). Vertical line extending from base near subject’s right shoe appears to be natural variation in stone and does not illuminate under UV light inspection. Minor wear to base, particularly at corners and lowermost edges. [See more photos →]

114 Lot 114: Catherine Wiley O/C, The Pea Shellers Catherine Wiley O/C, The Pea Shellers Lot 114: Catherine Wiley O/C, The Pea Shellers

Anna Catherine Wiley (Knoxville, TN, 1879-1958), “The Pea Shellers,” impressionist oil on canvas painting depicting three women seated on the porch of an East Tennessee home, Wolf Creek, shelling peas. The women are seated in ladderback chairs, filling woven baskets with green peas while pods accumulate on the floor; sunlight filters through foliage in the background. According to oral history, the three women in the scene are Helen Peck Allen, Nell Allen and “Mary,” a housekeeper. Miss Wiley was a friend of the Allen family and spent summer weeks at the Allen family estate at Wolf Creek, visiting Helen Peck Allen (in whose family this painting has descended). It was during one of these visits that Wiley painted this scene. Wolf Creek was a summer vacation community located in eastern Cocke County, alongside the French Broad River and bordering the Tennessee and North Carolina state line. The Allen house was also known as the Wolf Creek Inn. Note: This painting was exhibited at the Knoxville Museum of Art’s as part of their ongoing exhibit, “Higher Ground: A Century of the Visual Arts in East Tennessee”. Wolf Creek was the setting for several Wiley paintings including “Farmstead” and “Indian Woman at Wolf Creek” both illustrated in the 1990 TN State Museum exhibit catalog titled “Southern Impressionist: The Art of Catherine Wiley”, pages 15 and 34. Housed in a later gilt wood frame with egg and dart molded rabbet edge. Sight – 19 1/2″ H x 23 1/8″ W. Framed – 24 1/2″ H x 28 1/2″ W. Provenance: the collection of Helen Peck Allen, by descent to her son David Allen Dashiell, by descent to Georgia Ryan Mott Dashiell. “The art of Catherine Wiley has long been considered one of the more beautiful manifestations of Southern impressionism. Her animated broken brush work, her colorful sun splashed fields and her endearing depictions of genteel ladies and well-dressed children at rest and play seem to suggest a life lived quietly and at peace with the world. Yet her life may well have been far more turbulent, and her descent into the state of madness, which removed her from the world for the last 37 years of her life, far more apparent in her art than simple summations of her importance would imply. Large numbers of women entered the art world towards the end of the 19th century, their pathway smoothed by the arts and crafts route which saw them ushered on from sewing circles and homebased kilns into actual studios where they were taught by the male masters of the day. Catherine Wiley was one of those. She studied at the Art Students League in New York with Frank Vincent Dumond prior to returning to her native Knoxville where she became an associate of Lloyd Branson, the most important local artist of the day. She was a pioneer instructor at the University of Tennessee Art Department and a frequent winner of citations for her work at regional exhibitions, notably acclaimed for most meritorious collection at the Knoxville Appalachian Exposition in 1910. The Pea Shellers, here offered for auction, can be seen as one of the more telling revealing moments in her progress as an artist. Compositional format in her early work is largely horizontal, her decorative figures placed mid-field without any implication of depth or forced perspective. But in The Pea Shellers her subjects have moved inside a shed and are actually at work. Gone is the wide spread vista, replaced by the tri-angular projection of the roof shed over which trailing vine drops into the scene, a spontaneous insertion of nature in motion, as yet untrimmed. Her palette, though still bright, is here more tonal, an essay in the close color harmonics of blue and green which impart a slight shimmer to the otherwise mundane occupation of the inhabitants. This painting is surely mid-career. By 1923 she was painting in a far darker mood. “Under The Arbor,” (Morris Museum of Art) has a well dressed young woman standing at dazed attention beneath a canopy of black leaves, out of place with her setting, even as the setting itself is distant from lush agrarian idealism. By 1925 her mind was gone. One of her final paintings, to be seen at the East Tennessee Historical Society, is so heavily thick with paint that the actual scene itself is unclear, a swirling abstraction lost in space. The Pea Shellers importance springs from what it tells the viewer about Catherine WileyÕs potential, as it seems to indicate that she was beginning to move on from pastoral post card reveries towards an artistic expression more concerned with life than with appearance. It is a painting that can be viewed as evidence that her full potential as an artist was never to be seen by we, her subsequent viewers, for which we are all poorer.”– Estill Curtis Pennington, art historian and author, “Southern Impressionist: The Art of Catherine Wiley,” exhibit catalog for the 1990 exhibit at the Tennessee State Museum. CONDITION: Overall good condition. Two old circular repairs are visible en verso near the upper and lower edges, one measuring 1 3/8″ diameter and the other measuring 1 1/2″ H x 1 5/8″ W. UV light reveals area of touchup to post at lower left corner and to two small areas of beam, upper center, and to a few spots of foliage, upper center. One tiny area of touchup to the area where hair meets upper cheek on the woman facing the viewer and a few tiny scattered spots to background. Some fine scattered cracquelure. [See more photos →]

Rabbits were popular subject matter for Edmondson. A very similar rabbit is visible in the background of a photograph of Edmondson’s yard taken in 1941 by photographer Edward Weston (ref. Edmund L. Fuller, “Visions In Stone: the Sculpture of William Edmondson”, University of Pittsburgh Press, 1973, pages 7 and 9), and six rabbits were exhibited in the William Edmondson retrospective exhibit at the Tennessee State Museum in 1981 (ref. exhibit catalog, p. 64, for an example closely related to this one). Provenance: Private Pennsylvania Collection. 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. In 1937, Edmondson became the first African American artist to have a solo show at the Museum of Modern Art, and he is regarded as one of the most important self-taught artists of the 20th century.

Framed – 27″ H x 31″ W. Circa 1917. Note: this painting is illustrated as no. 238 on page 150 in “Leon Augustin Lhermitte: Catalog Raisonne,” by Monique Le Pelley Fonteny (Paris: Editions Cercle d’art, 1991). The catalog entry states that it is a smaller version of Lhermitte’s circa 1890 painting, “Fenaison au Soleil.” Provenance: Private Nashville collection. Biography (source: Museo Nacional Thyssen-Bornemisza): “Leon Lhermitte was born in the French region Aisne, as the son of a school teacher. In 1863 he went to Paris as a pupil of the Ecole Imperiale de Dessin, where he had the same teacher as Rodin, the well known Lecoq de Boisbaudran. A year later one of his drawings was admitted at the Salon in Paris; his first painting was accepted in 1866. In 1869 he went to London where he met Alphonse Legros, who eventually introduced him to the art dealer Paul Durand-Ruel. Lhermitte’s works sold well at Durand-Ruel’s gallery in New Bond Street. One of his paintings, “The Harvest ,” was awarded with a medal at the Paris Salon of 1874. In that period he made several trips to Bretagne. Degas invited Lhermitte to participate in the fourth exhibition of the Impressionists, but Lhermitte refused. His painting “The Payment of the Harvesters” was one of the highlights of the collection of the new Musee du Luxembourg in Paris. The art gallery Boussod, Valadon et Cie., signed a contract with Lhermitte for the exclusive rights to sell his paintings. Boussod and Valadon were the successors of the famous Goupil Gallery, which employed both Vincent van Gogh and his brother Theo as sales assistants. The French Government asked Lhermitte to decorate the Salle des Commissions in the Sorbonne, and the city of Paris invited him to make a monumental painting for the decoration of the new Hotel de Ville. At the Exposition Universelle of 1900 in Paris, Lhermitte was represented with seven paintings. He was created officer of the Legion d’Honneur and made a member of the Academie des Beaux-Arts. After the Great War, his health, which had never been very good, deteriorated and made it very difficult for him to continue his work. In his last years he only produced some pastels”. CONDITION: Painting is in excellent condition with no evidence of relining. Previous frame abrasions evident left, bottom, and right sides. UV light reveals 1 1/4″L area inpainting top right near forked hay. 1″ H x 2″ W area of scratching lower right between two women. Graphite pencil mark to right of signature evident.

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.

However, in 1903, with his friend Henri Matisse, Lebasque became a founder of the Salon d’Automne, an alternative to the conservative salons. There, he exhibited alongside Fauvist painters including his close friends Henri Matisse and Henri Manguin. His work is sometimes said to reflect the flatness of shape and color of Fauvism while employing a more fluid presentation. In later life, Lebasque worked closely with his friend and neighbor Pierre Bonnard. In 1957, MusŽe des Ponchettes in Nice presented the first retrospective of his works. His paintings are in the collections of several French and American museums. CONDITION: Overall very good condition with stretcher creases evident top and bottom.

591 Lot 591: Tennessee Sampler, Henley Family, Knox County Tennessee Sampler, Henley Family, Knox County Lot 591: Tennessee Sampler, Henley Family, Knox County

Tennessee needlework Family Register sampler, worked 1830 by Elizabeth M. Henley at the Knoxville Female Academy. Elizabeth Henley, granddaughter of Revolutionary War hero Col. David Henley, married Barclay McGhee, grandson of Knoxville settler and politician Col. Charles McClung. Silk on linen sampler with wide floral border, partially unfinished, with zig zag design satin stitch edging in contrasting light and dark threads, enclosing three rows of cross-stitched alphabet, the date 1830 and a row of numbers, over a bud and heart-with-cross motif band, over two verses: “Teach me to feel another’s woe/To hide the fault I see/that Mercy to others show /that mercy show to me” and “When age shall steal on me and youth is no more/and the moralist Time shakes his glass at my door/What charm in lost beauty or wealth shall find/my treasure my wealth is a sweet peace of mind”. Below the side by side verses is Elizabeth M. Henley’s signature and a family register with names and birth dates of her father, Arthur H. Henley, born Nov. 15, 1782; mother Ann E. Henley born Sept. 29, 1798, and siblings and/or possibly cousins: Sally H. Henley, born Feb. 20, 1816; David Henley, born Oct. 5, 1816; Mary K. Henley born Nov. 16, 1820; Alexander S. Henley born Nov. 15, 1822; and Mildred W. Henley (no birth date stated). Housed under glass in an early 20th century stained molded wood frame. 17 1/2″ H x 21 3/4″ W sight; 19 1/2″ H x 23 3/4″ W framed. Note: This sampler has been documented by the Tennessee Sampler Survey ( a copy of this report will accompany the sampler). Elizabeth Henley was born 1819 in Monroe County, Tennesssee to Arthur and Ann Henley. Her grandfather on her father’s side, David Henley, was a Continental Army officer during the American Revolutionary War, who served as George Washington’s intelligence chief and prisoner of war commandant. He later served as the Agent for the United States War Department for the Southwest Territory (later Tennessee) in the 1790s. Elizabeth’s name appears in the Knoxville Female Academy catalog for 1831 along with that of her sister Mary, and may have been worked while she was attending this school in Knox County, or at the Bolivar Academy in Madisonville, Monroe Co. as it bears a resemblence to other samplers made there at that time, according to the Tennessee Sampler Survey. Sadly, Elizabeth did not live long enough to reach the old age to which she alluded in her verse. She married Barclay McGhee in 1843 and died the following year at the age of 25, twelve days after the birth of their daughter. Barclay McGhee was the son of John Charles McGhee and Elizabeth Betsy Jones McClung McGhee (daughter of Knoxville settler and surveyor Colonel Charles McClung (1761-1835); he also was known as the master of land his family owned on the prehistoric Native American site in Monroe County called Toqua. Three years after Elizabeth’s death, Barclay married her sister Mary (whose name appears on the sampler). In 1856, at the age of 32, Barclay was found dead in a Chattanooga hotel room with a slit throat! Period accounts leave it unclear as to whether his wounds were self inflicted or the result of a deadly feud with a neighbor. Provenance: The Living Estate of Elizabeth Johnston Davidson Frierson, Knoxville, TN. CONDITION: Sampler has not been fully removed from frame but appears glued to cardboard backing. Overall discoloration to ground and fading to thread. Two significant areas of staining, 2″ diameter center right and 4″ diameter center left, other scattered minor spots of darker discoloration throughout. No apparent holes or significant losses, although the names Alexander and Mildred appear to have possibly been reinforced with darker thread or added later. [See more photos →]

While teaching at the university, she wrote art reviews for the Knoxville News Sentinel, created illustrations for the Volunteer college yearbook, served as President of the Nicholson Art League, and Director of the Fine Arts Department of Knoxville's National Conservation Exposition. Wiley also studied at the Art Students League in New York under Frank DuMond and William Merritt Chase, and spent summers learning from major American Impressionists such as Robert Reid, Jonas Lie, and Martha Walter. She won two gold medals at the Appalachian Exposition in 1910 for "Most Meritorious Collection" and claimed the prize for the best Southern artist at the Southwestern Fair in Atlanta in 1917. Her paintings, often depicting women in picturesque settings with vivid colors and expressive strokes, were exhibited at many prominent venues including the National Academy of Design in New York and the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts. In 1926, after the death of her father (1919) and mentor Lloyd Branson (1925), Wiley suffered a mental collapse which ended her painting career.

709 Lot 709: J.M. Barrie – Mrs. Patrick Campbell Letter Archive J.M. Barrie – Mrs. Patrick Campbell Letter Archive Lot 709: J.M. Barrie – Mrs. Patrick Campbell Letter Archive

Mrs. Patrick Campbell (born Beatrice Stella Tanner, 1865-1940) letter archive, including twelve (12) ALS written by Peter Pan author, Sir James Matthew Barrie (1860-1937) to the famous British actress. The twelve J.M. Barrie letters, written between 1888 and 1925, reflect a growing fondness between the pair over the years; James Barrie begins by formally addressing her as "Mrs. Campbell"and progresses from calling her Beatrice to Stella, and in his 1925 letter, he signs off: "My Love, JMB". The most significant letter appears to be one dated 23 Oct. 1921, transcribed by Campbell in her autobiography, "My Life and Some Letters" (beginning on page 349), in which Barrie expresses jealousy over her relationship with George Bernard Shaw: "My Dear Stella, I am much elated to find that you have preserved for so long these two old letters of mine. Is the faint perfume that I fondly think comes from them really lavender? And if it is (I wish I hadn't thought of this), is it lavender meant for me, or were my little missives merely kept so near the beautiful G.B.S. [Shaw] budget that in time they stole some of the sweetness in which, I am sure, he lies wrapt?". He also notes that writer's cramp has forced him to use his left hand to write instead of his usual right hand. Barrie letters approximately 7" H x 5" W. Lot includes four (4) additional letters and 1 telegram, all approximately 8 1/2" H x 11" W, dating from Mrs. Campbell's film career in the 1930s with signatures of Norbert Lusk, Belford Forrest, and Edmund Goulding. Biography (source: The University of Chicago Library, which holds a collection of Campbell's papers): "Beatrice Stella Campbell, known professionally as Mrs. Patrick Campbell, was a renowned English actress, famous for her portrayal of characters at once passionate and intelligent. The daughter of an English businessman in India and an Italian countess, she began her professional stage career in 1888. Her first great success was as Paula in "The Second Mrs. Tanqueray" by Arthur Pinero. Among her famous Shakespearian roles were Juliet, Lady Macbeth, and Ophelia. She also starred as Melisande in Maeterlinck's "Pelleas and Melisande," and in the title roles in Hofmannsthal's "Elektra," and Yeat's "Deirdre." In 1914 she created the role of Eliza Doolittle in George Bernard Shaw's "Pygmalion," and she maintained a warm friendship with the playwright. After World War I, she played few new roles, mainly recreating her former starring parts on tour in the United States and England. During the 1930's she also played minor roles in several American films. She died in 1940 in Pau, France." Provenance: a Middle Tennessee estate, by descent from Thomas G.B. Wheelock.

She did not start painting until her 50s. She used whatever surfaces she could find, and, working from memory, recorded everyday life, from work in the cotton fields to baptisms and funerals. She rendered her figures, usually black, in expressionless profile and disregarded formal perspective and scale. Though she first exhibited in 1949, Hunter did not garner public attention until the 1970s when both the Museum of American Folk Art in New York and the Los Angeles County Museum of Art exhibited her paintings. Even with such success, Hunter chose to stay in Louisiana, working at Melrose Plantation until 1970 when she moved to a small trailer a few miles away on an unmarked road.

Note: The SS Vesta was a Triple Expansion Engine, 42" stroke, 1875 HP, 5075 DWT. Commissioned April 9, 1913 at New York Shipbuilding Corp at Camden, New Jersey. This vessel was named after the Vesta Oil Works, Brooklyn, which came into the Standard Oil Group on April 1, 1879. The Vesta began her career by hauling Barge 94 from Baton Rouge to ports north of Hatteras. Later she teamed up with Barges 84 and 85. A round trip took from 23 to 25 days. Distinctions: The Vesta opened the port of Beaumont, Texas in 1916 by being the first vessel to go up the newly completed ship canal. The Vesta searched for and found Barge 88, which had broken away and become separated from her tow steamer in the Gulf of Mexico. The Vesta continued tow-tripping until May 1931, when she was sent across the Atlantic to deliver herself to Istanbul to new owners, a British flagged subsidiary, then known as the Standard Transportation Company, Ltd. of Hong Kong.This delivery took place June 20, 1931, three months after the Vesta's name had been changed to Pegasus at Trieste in March. As Pegasus this vessel served in and around the eastern Mediterranean up to and including part of WWII. (source: The Mariners' Museum and Park, Newport News, VA). Artist's Biography: Danish born Antonio Jacobsen became one of America's best known and most prolific painters of nautical subjects. He received some artistic training in Copenhagen as a young man before emigrating to America in 1873 and settling in Hoboken, New Jersey. He got a job decorating safes, which eventually led to a job painting portraits of the vessels of the Old Dominion Steamship Line, and worked the rest of his life as a maritime portraitist. He is said to have created some 6000 ship portraits in the New York Harbor between 1876 and 1919, many of which are now in museum collections. (sources: Harold S. Sniffen, the Mariners' Museum, and AskArt). Provenance: The Estate of Vance C. Carter, Knoxville, TN.

Attributed to Maria Louisa Wagner (New York, 1815-1888) and/or Daniel Wagner (New York, 1802-1888), two miniature portraits of unknown subjects, one signed en verso in pencil "by M. Louise(a) Wagner Albany 1847" and depicting a young woman with long dark ringlets, white gown and choker necklace; the other, larger and unsigned portrait of a young man with dark hair and wearing a black coat and tie, his right hand tucked into his jacket. Both paintings framed under glass in gilt metal cartouche shaped frames. Young woman: Sight – 3" H x 2 1/2" W. Framed – 5" H x 4 1/4" W. Young man: Sight – 4" H x 3 1/3" W. Framed – 6 1/2" H x 5 1/2" W. Note: Siblings Daniel and Maria Louisa Wagner were two of thirteen children born to Frederick and Anna or Hannah Walwort Wagner. They lived and worked in New York City and other towns in New York state in the mid 19th century. The book "Women's Culture: American Philanthropy and Art" states that Maria Wagner took up portrait painting "to help care for her crippled brother," although a newspaper article written in 1888, the year both died, suggests it was Daniel who began painting, following a hip injury that left him permanently disabled, and who then taught his sister to paint. Daniel and Maria seem to have painted both as a team and separately. Before setting up a successful studio in the Dodworth Building in New York, they traveled the state seeking work, eventually earning commissions to paint members of the New York legislature in Albany, Martin Van Buren, Silas Wright, Daniel Webster, and Millard Fillmore and his family. The siblings died within a few months of each other. (For more information, see an excellent history on the Wagners at http://aminports3.blogspot.com/2008/04/wagner-daniel-and-maria-louisa-portrait.html). Provenance: the collection of Frank Ingraham, Tap Root Farm, Franklin, Tennessee, by descent in his family. CONDITION: Portrait of young woman in excellent condition.

Louis Maurer (New York, 1832-1932) watercolor painting on paper depicting cowhands on horseback, herding long horn cows at a watering hole. Monogram signature lower right. Unframed. Sight – 3 3/8" H x 5 5/8" W. Overall – 8 1/4" H x 12 5/8" W. Biography: A native of Germany, Louis Maurer, immigrated to America in 1851 with his family, having trained in mechanical drawing, anatomy, lithography and ivory carving. He had also helped his father with cabinet making. Maurer took a job for eight years as a lithographer for Currier and Ives, earning a beginning salary of five dollars a week. He became known especially for his prints of trotting horses, and one of his most famous series was called The Life of a Fireman. He developed a system whereby several artists worked on a single print, with each having their specialty. He and Arthur Fitzwilliam Tait painted Indian and western subjects, and plagiarized their early efforts from pictures they found in the Astor library that were done by George Catlin and Karl Bodmer. From 1872 to 1884, he had his own successful lithographic firm. At age 50, Louis Maurer began study at the Gotham Art School and later studied with William Merritt Chase at the National Academy of Design. He made two extensive trips West, one of them in 1885 as the guest of Buffalo Bill Cody. On the second trip, he did numerous Rocky Mountain paintings and animal depictions. At the age of 99, he had his first solo exhibition, which was held in New York City.
