Framed – 6 5/8" square. American, late 20th century. Biography: "Born in 1907 in Terre Haute, Indiana, Burton Callicott spent much of his childhood and his seventy-year career as an artist and educator in Memphis. Callicott graduated in 1931 from the Cleveland School of Art, where he began an exploration of the use of light and dark that would follow him throughout his life. He is perhaps best known regionally for his set of three large murals in the Memphis Pink Palace Museum titled The Coming of De Soto. Completing his training in sculpture at the Cleveland School of Art in the midst of the Depression, Callicott returned to Memphis, where his mother and stepfather, Michael Abt, resided. The director of the western division of Tennessee's Federal Works of Art Project, Abt played a major role in launching Callicott's career. He put Callicott to work immediately on Memphis Cotton Carnival floats and displays for other Memphis festivals while also helping him secure a commission for a Public Works of Art Project mural in 1933. Installed in the Memphis Museum of Natural History (now the Memphis Pink Palace Museum), the three-panel mural depicts Hernando De Soto's arrival in West Tennessee. Another of Callicott's most recognized works, The Gleaners (1936), was completed during the early years of his career and received much attention at the 1939 New York World's Fair. These early projects set Callicott off on a long and successful career in Memphis. Callicott became a founding faculty member of the Memphis Academy of Art (now the Memphis College of Art) in 1937. Callicott became professor emeritus in 1978. Callicott's works have been exhibited at various museums across the state and region, including the Cheekwood Museum of Art and the Tennessee State Museum in Nashville, the West Tennessee Regional Art Center in Humboldt, the Knoxville Museum of Art, the Carroll Reece Museum at East Tennessee State University, the Arkansas Art Center in Little Rock, and the Morris Museum of Art in Augusta, Georgia. Samples of his artwork are on permanent display at the Memphis Brooks Museum of Art and the Memphis Pink Palace Museum. The Tennessee Arts Commission chose to honor the work of Callicott in 2000 with a specialty license plate for which he designed a rainbow with the caption, "art is…a rainbow." Callicott continued to live in Memphis until his death in 2003". (source: "Burton Callicott"by Elizabeth H.

Upon his return to the United States, Gardner resumed study at the National Academy of Design in New York. Afterwards, he moved to Aberdeen, Mississippi, where he taught art at a female academy. He next moved to Winchester in Franklin County [TN], where he spent five years on the faculty at Mary Sharp College. Gardner made his last home in Nashville, where he had his greatest artistic influence. He made the first woodcuts and pen portraits for photoengraving used in the local daily newspapers, including the first published pen portrait of Sarah Childress Polk. Although Gardner was listed in the catalogue of the 1885 Watkins Institute Art Show as a teacher there, he actually taught under the auspices of the Nashville Art Association [which he co-founded] in the art room which Watkins provided. His first official association with Watkins's Night School probably came in September 1910, when he was hired to teach industrial art. (School commissioners were perhaps still uncomfortable with the term "fine" art.) Gardner's presence on the Watkins Institute faculty gave the school a teacher trained in commercial and fine arts. He encouraged his students to draw by taking casts and using live models, and this laid the foundation for the school's Department of Fine Art." (source: "Edwin M.

645Lot 645: Andrew Jackson ALS, 1830Andrew Jackson ALS, 1830Lot 645: Andrew Jackson ALS, 1830

Andrew Jackson (1767-1845) autograph letter, signed, as President (1829-1837), to Major Nathan Reid of New London, Virginia, detailing Jackson’s intervention with Lt. Col. (Sylvanus) Thayer of West Point on behalf of Reid's grandson, William Steptoe Reid (roommate of future author Edgar Allan Poe), and encouraging the younger Reid to embrace and continue his education there. One page folio letter on vellum, Washington, November 16, 1830. 10" H x 16" W. Note: Major Nathan Reid's son (and William Steptoe Reid's father), Major John Reid, was Jackson's aide de camp during the War of 1812 and did not survive the conflict. Nathan Reid helped raise his grandson, while his friend Jackson, who lost his own father at a young age, became an uncle-like figure to young William. According to a privately published family history, it was Jackson who persuaded William to enter West Point although William wanted to be a doctor. While at West Point, William Steptoe Reid roomed with Edgar Allan Poe (who soon grew disillusioned with military school himself, and whose exploits ultimately resulted in explusion). Although Andrew Jackson himself rose to become one of the most prominent generals in American history, he lacked a formal military education, making his efforts to ensure a successful career at West Point for young William all the more meaningful. Ultimately, even presidential pressure was not enough to keep Steptoe in military school. He left West Point in March of 1831, the same year as Poe. William entered the Medical School of the University of Pennsylvania, and became a prominent doctor in Holly Springs, MS and later Middle Tennessee, where he married Sarah Claiborne Maury. Dr. William Steptoe Reid's medical bag and a photographic portrait, which, like this letter, have descended in his family to the current consignor, are also being offered in this auction. Transcription of letter: "My Dr Sir, On the receipt of your letter of the 14th. of October last, on the subject of your Grandson Wm. J. Reid, I lost no time in laying before the proper department, your letter that it might be forwarded to the superintendent of the military academy, that the situation of your grandson might be fully known, and such preparatory steps taken as would prevent mortification to the youth, or unpleasant feelings to you. I have now the pleasure to inclose for your satisfaction, the reply of Lt Col. S. Thayer on this subject, which I trust will be fully satisfactory to you. Permit me to recommend it to you, to write your grandson to lay out of view every idea of leaving the institution until he graduates. This will stimulate him to diligence and put out of his view all idea of leaving the institution, & when this is the case, he has genius, that will surmount all difficulty, & place him in a respectable standing in his class. Tell him that his future prospects in life mainly depend upon his continuing there & procuring when it is within his grasp, a thorough education. I assure you my affection for the father has descended to the son, and as far as I can with propriety, he will be protected in all his rights, and encouraged to do right. Accept I pray you my best wishes & believe me your friend, Andrew Jackson." CONDITION: Letter was professionally conserved by Christine Young and enclosed in japon paper to address some separations and small losses at fold lines and scattered foxing. Small stain still evident on page 2 between "Nathan" and "Reid." Signature bold and clear, untouched by fold lines. [See more photos →]

Biography: "A native of Lauterecken, Bavaria, Carl Christian Brenner is noted for his landscapes and genre paintings. As a youth, he demonstrated sufficient artistic talent to be offered admission to the Munich Art Academy. However, Brenner's father insisted he decline the offer and instead be trained as a glazier. At the age of fifteen, Brenner immigrated to the United States, landing first at New Orleans in 1853. He worked as a sign painter and glazier in that city for a few years, but then moved to Louisville, Kentucky, where he made his home for the remainder of his life. Working from his adopted city, Brenner painted a panoramic view of Civil War scenes for the Masonic Hall of Louisville in 1863. In the 1870s, Brenner began to devote his energies to landscape painting, creating many detailed views of the parks, rivers and forests in Louisville and the Cumberland mountains, for which he became well known and especially beloved locally. He also traveled to the West to paint views of the Plains states, Colorado, California, Washington, and Oregon. Brenner exhibited landscapes in the Louisville Industrial Exposition of 1874 and Philadelphia Centennial Exposition of 1876. He participated regularly in annual exhibitions of the National Academy of Design from 1877 to 1886 and in those of the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts from 1881 to 1885. His work is in the collections of the Corcoran Gallery of Art, St. Louis Museum of Art, Speed Art Museum, Cheekwood Botanical Gardens and Museum of Art, and Morris Museum of Art."

Newman served with the Confederate forces during the Civil War before moving to New York. He returned to Tennessee in 1872 and tried to establish an academy of fine arts in Nashville, but by 1873 he was back in New York, where he resided the rest of his life. He rarely exhibited his work.

Gilbert Gaul (American, 1855-1919), oil on canvas landscape depicting a country road with two wooden structures painted red, one possibly a barn with weathervane, obscured by leafy trees, under a mostly cloudy sky. Titled "Tennessee Back Road" on previous sales label en verso, along with artist information. Signed "G. Gaul" lower left. Housed in a gold leaf cove molded frame with carved acanthus leaf ornaments at corners. Canvas – 12" H x 18" W. Framed – 20" H x 26" W. Provenance: Private Southern Collection. Biography: New Jersey born artist Gilbert Gaul studied art with Lemuel E. Wilmarth at the school of the National Academy of Design from 1872 to 1876, and privately with the noted genre painter, J. G. Brown. He continued his training at the Art Students League during 1875 and 1876. Gaul first exhibited his work at the National Academy in 1877. In 1881, he inherited a farm in Van Buren County, Tennessee, from his mother's family, and lived there four years to fulfill terms of the bequest. In 1885, he returned to New York though he also continued to spend time at the farm in Tennessee. Gaul gained acclaim for his illustration art and portrayals of Civil War scenes. He became a regular exhibitor at the National Academy annuals between 1877 and 1902; in 1882, he was accorded the status of full academician-the youngest artist to attain the honor. He exhibited at the 1889 Paris Exposition; the 1893 World Columbian Exposition in Chicago; and the 1902 Pan-American Exposition in Buffalo, where he was awarded medals. In 1876 Gaul made his first trip to the American West, an area for which he developed a particular affinity. He made numerous western trips in subsequent years, photographing and rendering scenes of Native Americans and the frontier, which he would later work up into paintings in his studios in New York or Tennessee. In 1890, he worked for the United States census on reservations in North Dakota. He also visited Mexico, the West Indies, Panama, and Nicaragua. An account of his travels was published in Century Magazine in 1892. In 1904, he returned to Tennessee and settled in Nashville. The decreasing interest in Civil War subjects resulted in financial hardship for Gaul. He gave private art lessons, and taught at the Watkins Institute, Nashville, and at Cumberland Female College, in McMinnville. He also spent time in Charleston, South Carolina. By 1910, he had moved to Ridgefield, New Jersey, where he continued to paint and live out his remaining years. (source: The Johnson Collection). CONDITION: Overall very good condition with small repair left center near edge of canvas (in trees), some spots of light grime in sky. Later frame. [See more photos →]

First quarter 20th century. Provenance: Estate of Carl Klein, Brentwood, TN. Biography: Born in Hawkinsville, Georgia, Jones was only five years old when her father, who had served as a captain in the Confederate forces, died and her family relocated to Brooklyn. Following graduation from Adelphi Academy, she taught elementary school. Jones' career objectives changed in the 1920s, when her husband, the etcher and painter Eugene Arthur Jones, encouraged her to focus on art. Her impressionistic landscapes appeared in the Southern States Art League's 1925 exhibition in Atlanta and, two years later, at the Holt Gallery in New York City. Jones traveled to Paris in 1929, where she was awarded a scholarship to the Fontainebleau School of Art, located in the heart of the French countryside made famous by the Barbizon painters. In 1936, Jones returned to Georgia and found inspiration in the South; this subject matter triggered a shift in Jones' aesthetic. She began to make periodic trips to the South, where she created landscapes as well as genre scenes of regional traditions. Frequently, her paintings depict African Americans at labor and in moments of leisure. Jones served as president of the National Association of Women Artists and, simultaneously, as the first female president of the Brooklyn Society of Artists. In 1941, Jones initiated efforts to establish an art museum at Berry College in Rome, Georgia, to which she donated twelve paintings. As Jones neared her centennial birthday, she was named Woman of the Year by the National Association of Women Artists and was honored with a Distinguished Citizen Award from the Brooklyn Museum.

Biography: Lilian Webb, also spelled Lillian Webb, was born Feb. 8, 1930 and grew up in Nashville, where her family ran a small grocery store of Nolensville Road. A self taught painter, her work was discovered by an art dealer named "Ms. Butler" who convinced Webb to let her offer her paintings for sale in a gallery in Nashville's former Church Street Centre. "Not many sold," Webb recalled in a 1994 interview documented by collector Carl Klein, "but she said she sold most of them in New York later." Webb's work came to the attention of nationally known outsider art patron Dan Prince, and a number of other collectors and dealers of outsider art, including some who tried to formally represent Webb. She refused, saying "I want to be unknown. I don't want to be in the limelight…When people start pressuring me, I quit painting." About her technique, Webb said "I paint real fast because Van Gogh could paint 3 paintings in one day. If I spend too much time on a painting it makes me nervous," and "I [paint] people I love the best very well." Webb's early works included interpretations of masters such as Renoir. Her later paintings focused on popular culture or historical figures such as presidents and celebrities. Webb's work can be found in the homes of several Nashville area outsider art collectors and has been exhibited at the Peninsula Fine Arts Center in Virginia (How Artists See their World: Outside Art from the Dan Prince Collection, 2010) and the Cannon County Arts Center (Dr. & Mrs. Benjamin Caldwell Collection, 2014).

Signed "Carrol Cloar" lower left. Unframed. 12" H x 16" W. 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-1950's, 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.

634Lot 634: Large Early Tennessee Legal Archive, 100 plus itemsLarge Early Tennessee Legal Archive, 100 plus itemsLot 634: Large Early Tennessee Legal Archive, 100 plus items

Approximately one hundred and forty (140) early Tennessee legal documents including sheriff summons, court filings, wills, land surveys, and land grants. Signatures include Colonel Francis A. Ramsey (1764-1820) and Major James Sevier (1764-1847). The documents, dated circa 1793-1871, pertain mainly to the Superior Court in Knoxville, Hamilton District, Jonesborough, Washington, County, Grainger County, and Greene County. 1st item: Colonel Francis A. Ramsey signed document commanding the coroner of Grainger County, TN to take the body of James Conn to the judges at the Superior Court in Knoxville, Hamilton District, TN, with the transcript of a case between Conn and Eliza Wilson, dated March 4, 1808. Biography: Francis Alexander Ramsey was born in Pennsylvania in 1764 to Scotch-Irish parents, and moved to Greene County, Tennessee in 1783. That year, North Carolina (which controlled what is now East Tennessee) opened up Cherokee lands north of the French Broad to settlement, and Ramsey, James White, and several other explorers began making excursions into what is now the Knoxville area in search of new land. He was issued a grant for Swan Pond and its surrounding land in November 1786. Ramsey's rise to prominence in the failed State of Franklin (1784-1788) kept him occupied for the remainder of the decade, and it wasn't until 1792, after he had been appointed clerk for the newly formed Southwest Territory, that he decided to move to Swan Pond, which lay just outside the territory's new capital at Knoxville. London-trained architect Thomas Hope designed the house, and probably built it between 1795 and 1797. 2nd item: Washington County Sessions handwritten document witnessed by Major James Sevier, Clerk, and John A. Aiken, Solicitor, circa 1814-1815. Biography: A Revolutionary War soldier at the age of 16, James Sevier fought at the Battle of Kings Mountain under his father Col. John Sevier, first governor of Tennessee. James Sevier served as Clerk of the Washington County, Tennessee Court for forty-six years; one (1) document witnessed by Valentine Sevier, clerk, Greene County, April 8, 1818. Biography: Valentine Sevier (1780-1854) was the son of Captain Robert Sevier, nephew of General John Sevier. He was a Circuit County Clerk of Greene County for about fifty years. He was buried in Old Harmony Graveyard, Greeneville, Greene County, Tennessee. (source: https://www.findagrave.com/memorial/20574894/valentine-sevier). 3rd item: document pertaining to a November 10, 1784 complaint against Colonel Stockley Donelson (1752-1805), brother of Rachel Donelson (wife of President Andrew Jackson), and Archibald Taylor, signed by Jonathan Langdon and John Carter, Washington District, circa March 18, 1802. Lot also includes approximately seventeen (17) documents handwritten and/or witnessed by Peter Parsons, Clerk, Jonesborough, Washington County, dated circa 1812-1818; approximately seven (7) documents handwritten and/or witnessed by James V. Anderson, Clerk of the Circuit Court, Jonesborough, Washington County, dated circa 1812-1821; one (1) transcript of a case between Charles Grayham and George Click vs. Ira Green, Washington County, handwritten and witnessed by John Blair, Attorney, John Patton, Justice of the Peace, and others, circa 1813-1817; (2) documents handwritten and/or witnessed by John Kennedy, attorney, dated circa 1815-1817; approximately sixteen (16) documents handwritten and/or witnessed by Dicks Alexander, Clerk and Master of the Court, Rogersville, Hawkins County, dated circa 1809-1852; and one (1) undated document addressed to "the good people of Grainger Jefferson & Hawkins County" pertaining to several crimes that were committed by William Rayl, his sons, and associates for several years, including "…Burning houses and stables stabing[sic]maiming killing & poisoning stock in a most cruel manner all of which was done in the night time when the honest citizens were a sleep…" The rest of the document continues to elaborate on the crimes and the restitution paid by some of the men who perpetrated the crimes, including F.W. Taylor and G.G. Taylor; and more. All housed in a three ring binder. Note: The first resident attorneys of prominence were John Kennedy, John A. Aiken, Peter Parsons and John Blair. Kennedy came to Jonesborough from Pennsylvania soon after Tennessee was admitted as a State, and continued to live in the town until the Ocoee purchase was made in 1836. He was then appointed one of the deputy surveyors of that district, and moved to Bradley County. Peter Parsons was the brother of Enoch Parsons, who was a candidate for governor in 1819. He was a resident of Jonesborough for several years and afterward removed to Alabama. John Blair came to the bar about 1812, and soon gained a high reputation as a sound lawyer and an honest man. In 1823 he defeated John Rhea for Congress, and for twelve consecutive years thereafter he held a seat in that body. After his retirement from office he engaged in merchandising, and also kept a hotel, which now forms part of the Washington House. Aiken was admitted to the bar about 1810, and practiced at Jonesboro until his death with the exception of a few years when he resided at Maryville. Among the other attorneys resident at Jonesboro in 1833, were James V. Anderson. He was the first named clerk of the circuit court, and was not actively engaged in the practice of law. Mark T. Anderson, his son, died soon after coming to the bar. (source: http://sites.rootsweb.com/~tncjones/goodspeed.htm). Provenance: Estate of Anne Harrison Taylor & Joseph F. Taylor, Morristown, TN.

He is also one of the most recognized American painters in the Barbizon style. Fornier was born on July 4, 1865 in St. Paul, Minnesota. He began his artistic career in his teenage years, working as a sign painter and traveling to the San Juan Valley to sketch homes of cliff dwellers for the 1893 World’s Fair in Chicago. Fournier later attended the Minneapolis Academy of Fine Arts, where he studied under Douglas Volk. He furthered his studies abroad at the Julian Academy in Paris. He also spent several years at the Barbizon School, studying the works of masters Jean-François Millet, Theodore Rousseau, and Charles – François Daubigny. Elbert Hubbard, founder of the Roycroft Arts and Crafts community, discovered Fournier and his work while lecturing in Chicago. Hubbard invited him to Roycroft, and in 1903, Fournier relocated to East Aurora where he contributed several murals to the Roycroft Inn. In addition to his work with Roycroft, Fournier worked with other artist colonies in Woodstock, New York; Provincetown, Massachusetts; and Brown County, Indiana. He was a member of several professional organizations including the National Arts Club, the Cliff Dwellers’ Club and the Chicago Galleries Association, and was an honorary member of the Arts Club of Buffalo and the Buffalo Society of Artists… His landscapes are included in collections at the Minneapolis Institute of Arts, the Minnesota Historical Society, the Minnesota Museum of American Art, and the Snite Museum of Art at the University of Notre Dame."
