178 Lot 178: Beauford Delaney Abstract Oil on Canvas Painting Beauford Delaney Abstract Oil on Canvas Painting Lot 178: Beauford Delaney Abstract Oil on Canvas Painting

Beauford Delaney (American/Tennessee, 1901-1979) large-scale vertically oriented oil on canvas painting presenting an abstraction comprised of horizontally lined brushstrokes in varying widths and set against a variegated and tactile background. The artist anchors the image with a rectangular shape in the lower half of the image, which includes two mirrored color centric arcs, one slightly larger than the other. The artist creates a viewer's scrim through an applied overall splatter pattern in off-white and raw umber. Unsigned. 63 3/4 x 51 1/4 inches. Circa 1972. Provenance: The Estate of Lois Imogene Delaney, Knoxville, Tennessee. Note: Beauford Delaney's studio practice has been characterized as a linear path from modernist urban scenes in New York City to atmospheric abstractions when he moved to Paris in 1953. Numerous late paintings by Delaney, such as this circa 1972 canvas, suggest that the artist used an inventive and experimental approach during the last 5-10 years of his career. During this period, he expanded his studio practice to include monoprints, screenprints, and lithographs. Additionally, he worked in a realist style, as in his series of portraits of Civil Rights-era leader Rosa Parks, while simultaneously producing non-objective compositions made up of swirling bands of color applied with a variety of tools. These and other stylistic and technical experiments attest to Delaney's remarkable energy and wide-ranging aesthetic interests during the latter part of his career. The painting being offered with a composition in muted, intuitive color choices possibly points to the American Modernist influence of Marsden Hartley. A Beauford Delaney oil of similar size dated 1974 with centric arches and horizontal stripes can be viewed in the San Francisco MOMA collection: https://www.artsy.net/artwork/beauford-delaney-untitled-81. Additional note: A photographic image depicting the oil on canvas being offered is pictured in the Knoxville, Tennessee art storage facility with the artist's niece, Ogust Delaney Stewart, in the foreground.

Bernstein Curator of the Knoxville Museum of Art), Derek Spratley (Administrator, Estate of Beauford Delaney), and Jane Jacob (President, Jacob Fine Art, Inc.) for their assistance on this Beauford Delaney oil painting.

176 Lot 176: William Edmondson Limestone Critter Sculpture William Edmondson Limestone Critter Sculpture Lot 176: William Edmondson Limestone Critter Sculpture

William Edmondson (American/Tennessee, 1874-1951) limestone "Critter" sculpture depicting a small animal sitting upright on its hind legs, with front feet cast downward, atop a rectangular integral base. 12 3/8" H x 5" W x 7 3/4" D. Provenance: Private Southern collection. Note: This "Critter" is stylistically similar to 2 sculptures sold by Case Antiques in 2011, Lot #190 and in 2020, Lot #153. While this form is most similar to the example sold in 2020 in the sculpting of the ears and the slope of the neck, this example has an elongated oval head more similar to the form sold in 2011. 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.

Biography: Born and raised in Cajun Country, artist George Rodrigue "portrayed on his canvas what he feared was his dying heritage – including its land, people, traditions, and mythology and sought to "graphically interpret the Cajun culture, preserving it in the face of a progressive world". Rodrigue began to draw and paint as a child, after being confined to bed with polio. Recovered, he went on to study art at the University of Southwest Louisiana and the Art Center College of Design, then in Los Angeles. In the early 1990s he was commissioned to create art for a book of Cajun ghost stories. This project was the genesis of his Blue Dog Series, inspired by the French-Cajun loup-garou legend, and modeled after his own childhood dog, Tiffany. Blue Dog catapulted him to worldwide fame. Rodrigue portrayed his famous melancholy canine subject in a variety of unlikely settings, with Presidents, celebrities and in ads for Absolut Vodka, as well as in traditional bayou landscapes. A passionate philanthropist, Rodrigue later founded the George Rodrigue Foundation of the Arts www.rodriguefoundation.org, advocating the importance of the arts in education. Programs include art supplies for schools, scholarships, and arts integration through Louisiana A+ Schools. Rodrique died of cancer in 2013 at the age of 69. (Source: The George Rodrigue Foundation).

East Tennessee oil on fabric portrait of Judge John A. McKinney (1781-1845) attributed to Samuel Shaver (TN, 1816-1878). The subject is attired in a dark suit and gold waistcoat and depicted seated in the "Napoleonic" pose. Housed in a carved mahogany veneer wood frame. Sight: 27 1/2" H x 24" W. Framed: 34" H x 30 1/2" W. Note: This portrait is illustrated in the Tennessee Portrait Project and referenced in "Portraits in Tennessee Before 1866," page 78, entry #318. Note: Family history states that this portrait was completed circa 1842, making it one of the earliest known Shaver attributed portraits. Biography of the sitter: John Augustine McKinney emigrated from Ireland to the United States in 1800. He married Elizabeth Ayer and moved to Rogersville, Tennessee to practice law. McKinney was a successful lawyer and landowner and built many prominent structures in Rogersville. In 1824-1825, he built the McKinney Tavern House which hosted three U.S. Presidents including Jackson, Polk, and Johnson. The tavern was eventually renamed The Hale Springs Inn which was famous for being the oldest, continuously run Inn in the state of Tennessee. McKinney tried cases in Hawkins, Hancock, Sullivan, Washington, Greene, Grainger, Claiborne, Campbell, and Union Counties. He was appointed U.S. District Attorney by President John Quincy Adams and was chosen to represent his County in the State Constitutional Convention in 1834. Biography of the artist (Courtesy of James C. 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 a 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, Shaver moved to Knoxville, where he became one of the founders of the East Tennessee Art Association. 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.

All with 3 cent US Washington rose stamps except as noted. Biography: Known as "the Thunderbolt of the Confederacy," John Hunt Morgan was born in Alabama but is most closely associated with Kentucky. He equipped a militia company, known as the "Lexington Rifles," out of his own pocket and led them to Bowling Green at the start of the war to join forces with General Buckner. Morgan was made a colonel in 1862 and fought at Shiloh before being attached to Joseph Wheeler's division in General Braxton Bragg's Army of Tennessee. However, Morgan frequently defied orders and struck out on his own across "enemy" lines, destroying railroad and telegraph lines, seizing supplies and taking prisoners. In 1862, his marriage to Mattie Ready Morgan was called the "social event of the year" in Confederate circles. Mattie Ready was the daughter of a successful Murfreesboro, TN mayor and U.S. Representative (before the war); she attended Soule College in Murfreesboro and the Nashville Female Academy. John Hunt Morgan's most ambitious raid began in 1863, when against Bragg's explicit orders, Morgan and his 2,400 men crossed the Ohio River and rode over a thousand miles to terrorize the defenses of Southern Indiana and Ohio. Bragg was captured and sent to prison in Columbus, but escaped and made his way back to Confederate lines. In 1864 he set out to attack the largely pro-Union city of Knoxville, Tennessee, but was caught in a surprise attack in Greeneville and shot to death by a Union private who had once served under him. His death left Mattie Ready Morgan a pregnant widow after only 630 days of marriage. Source: Stephen Cox, "Civil War Flags of Tennessee"; and The American Battlefield Trust.

Thomas McKenney and James Hall: HISTORY OF THE INDIAN TRIBES OF NORTH AMERICA, Volume One (only). 32 plates present. Front cover, some color plates, and early pages, including title page, are missing. This partially complete single volume appears to be the first edition, published by Edward C. Biddle in Philadelphia in 1837. It retains 32 original plates: War Dance, Red Jacket, Kishkalawa, Pushmataha, Elskwautawaw, Eshtahumleah, Waapashaw, Meetakoosega, Weshcubb, Little Crow, Sequoyah, Nawkaw, Quatawapea, Payta Kootha, Pashepaw, Peamuska, Catahecassa, An Objibway Mother and Child, Okeemakeequid, Waemboeshkaa, Mcintosh, Ongpatonga, Nesouaquoit, Moanahonga, Tahchee, Ancamegishca, Wabishkeepenas, Tshusick, Lappawinsoe, Tishcohan, Shahaka, Tokacon. Sheet size of plates: 15" x 20". Provenance: private Middle Tennessee collection. History: The idea for this landmark book was conceived by Thomas McKenney, head of the U.S. Office of Indian Affairs. Through his job, McKenney had the opportunity to travel and become acquainted with Native American tribes and their leaders. By about 1820 he had become increasingly concerned about the survival of Native American culture in the face of Western expansionism. McKenney believed American Indians should be "looked up on as human beings, having bodies and souls like ours" and wanted to preserve "in the archives of the Government whatever of the aboriginal man can be rescued from the destruction which awaits their race." McKenney began commissioning portraits of American Indians who traveled to Washington, DC to negotiate treaties with the federal government. Charles Bird King and Peter Rindisbacher were among those artists hired to depict Native American chiefs, warriors and squaws, either from life or from watercolors by frontier artists like James Otto Lewis. In 1829, McKenney was dismissed from his post by President Andrew Jackson. McKenney began commissioning lithographs of the paintings in order to reach a wider audience through a subscription-based publishing project, and hired Judge James Hall to write biographies of the sitters and a general history of North American Indians. It became the most elaborate color plate book published in the United States when it was released over a multi-year period from c. 1837-1944.

Biography: "Aaron Bohrod studied at the Art Institute of Chicago and at the Art Students' League of New York under John Sloan. While living in Chicago during the 1930s, he worked for the Chicago Federal Art Project and was Artist-in-Residence at the University of Illinois-Carbondale. Bohrod painted in the Regionalist and Social-Realist styles, documenting Chicago street scenes. The somewhat brighter colors found in his earliest paintings, however, reveal that he was already taking liberties with the Regionalist style. From 1942 to 1945, Bohrod was an artistic war correspondent in the European Theater for Life Magazine and also worked for the Army Corps of Engineers. In 1948, Bohrod replaced John Steuart Curry as the second Artist-in-Residence at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. A few years later, his continued work with the university's Rural Art Program created enough interest in program activities that the Wisconsin Rural Artists Association (WRAA) was established. Bohrod was Artist-in-Residence at UW-Madison until his retirement in 1973. In the late 1940s, Bohrod became part of a growing tendency toward illusionism and fantasy called 'Magic Realism.' His later "trompe l'oeil" still lifes, begun in the 1950s, are filled with allusions, puns, and jibes that refer to many cultures and different eras. He often included art historical references, found objects, and faux surfaces in his works to create those illusions. In the early 1950s, he traveled extensively throughout Wisconsin and Michigan, making sketches of the landscapes along the way. His intense study of nature resulted in smaller paintings that became more detailed." (source: Museum of Wisconsin Art). Condition: Overall very good condition. [See more photos →]

Housed in a giltwood frame with off white linen liner. Sight: 7 3/4" H x 9 3/4" W. Framed: 13" H x 14 3/4" W. Provenance: Private Chattanooga, TN collection, purchased in California in the 1970s. Biography: Albert Pinkham Ryder, was born in New Bedford, Massachusetts. Ryder entered the National Academy of Design in 1870, but soon after he became allied with a group of more progressive artists, like J. Alden Weir, who formed the Society of American Artists in 1877. That same year Ryder traveled abroad for the first time, and he spent the summer of 1882 in Europe and North Africa where he became inspired by old masters. Between 1878 and 1887 Ryder exhibited at the Society of American Artist group shows, as well as at the National Academy. He was admired as a colorist and developed his own personal technique, using a dark palette, heavy pigment with multiple layers and glazes to create an inner luminosity. It is recognized that his inventive, imaginative mind and technique foreshadow the similar approaches made by later surrealist and abstract expressionist artists.

Biography: "Known for his decorative work, especially of anthropomorphic animals, Frederick Stuart Church was a native of Michigan who had a long career in New York City. He had in-depth knowledge of animal anatomy, which was evident in the depictions of this subject in oil, watercolor, and etchings. His first allegorical compositions were produced in the mid-1870s. Although he was a strong believer in academic training, Church did not visit Europe until late in life and felt that foreign art had little to teach Americans. He was directed by his parents toward a business career, and worked from the age thirteen to seventeen for the American Express Company in Chicago. He did a lot of drawing in his spare time. For three years, he served in Union artillery during the Civil War, and then returned to Chicago where he studied at the Chicago Art Academy with Walter Shirlaw. In 1870, he moved to New York and studied at the National Academy of Design with Lemuel Wilmarth and at the Art Students League. Early on, he earned his living as a commercial artist including illustrations for "Harper's Weekly." His illustrations often featured black and white drawings of animals. He also worked in watercolors and oils and was skilled as an etcher. He was a member of the National Academy of Design."

She married Captain James Richards (1774-1844), of Culpeper County, Virginia, circa 1799. They had seven children, including Harriet Somerville Richards, born March 12, 1820 at Culpeper County, VA, who married Philip Smith Hale, son of George Hale and Margaret Hamilton, on September 3, 1846 at Culpeper County, VA, and had ten children. Harriet appeared on the census of June 24, 1880 at Rogersville, Hawkins County, Tennessee, USA, as a widow. Harriet died on January 24, 1908 at Rogersville, Hawkins County, Tennessee, at age 87. She was buried Presbyterian Church Cemetery, Rogersville, Hawkins County, TN. (source: http://pembertonfamily.com/history/koplend/richards001.htm). Artist Biography (Courtesy of James C. 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. The Estate of Alice Wright Summers Hale, Rogersville, TN. Condition: Original canvas laid on board. Overall light craquelure. Old repairs to left side of subjects face and left margin.

Biography: Born in Paris, France in 1865, Leon Dabo apprenticed in his father's Detroit studio, then divided his time between Paris and New York. He studied with the artist Pierre-Cecile Puvis de Chavannes, who advised him to learn decorative arts because, 'if you don't you won't eat and you will die.' Dabo focused on architectural decoration until the early 1900s, when he was invited to exhibit his landscapes in New York. He painted broad views of mountains and rivers that emphasized the changing effects of light on the landscape. These images appealed to nineteenth-century Americans, who saw the countryside gradually disappearing as a result of industrialization. Dabo exhibited extensively during his lifetime, both in group shows and as a solo artist, including at the 1913 Armory Show. His work was also on display at many museums including The Metropolitan Museum of Art, Museum of Fine Arts Boston, and the National Gallery of Art. Dabo died in 1960 in New York City, and continues to be exhibited, praised, and widely collected today. (Adapted from the Smithsonian American Art Museum biography of Dabo).

Vance, was born in Clarksville, TN, November 26, 1816, and educated in Nashville. He landed in Memphis, February 6, 1835, more by accident than design. He was en route home from New Orleans by steamer, among the passengers on board being three agreeable gentlemen, merchants in the then new town of Memphis. They prevailed upon him to stop here and accept a business engagement, and he was promptly installed as clerk in a store on Winchester street, between Main and Front row. In the fall of that year he was one of a party of Nashville gentlemen forming a horseback expedition to the then Mexican Territory of Texas. There he found an opportunity for investment in lands, and did so, a few years later selling at an advance that formed a nucleus for his future fortune. While in that State he was present at the meeting called to declare its independence of Mexico, and was appointed to the secretaryship of the legation to the United States, headed by his brother-in-law, George C. Childress, Minister. He took a prominent part in the erection of many landmarks of the city, some of which still stand and are ornaments. The most prominent of these is the Gayoso Hotel, which was the result of his enterprise and that of his brother-in-law, Robertson Topp. In 1844, Col. Vance was married to Miss Letitia Thompson, daughter of George C. Thompson, of Kentucky. When the war broke out Col. Vance, who was then engaged in farming in Kentucky, deposited upward of $100,000 with the Barings, of London, and awaited the cessation of hostilities, though he took no active part in them, being beyond the age for military service. On the evening of April 14, 1865, he was in Washington, and attended Ford's Theater and witnessed the assassination of President Lincoln. Col. Vance was the first who reached Willard's Hotel with the news. In 1867 he went with a commission from Gov. Bramlette, of Kentucky, to the World's Exposition at Paris, France, accompanied by his daughters, Misses Bettie and Sue. In 1868 he sold his Kentucky property and returned to Memphis, where he resided until his death in 1888. (source: THE MEMPHIS APPEAL obituary, November 14, 1888).

At the age of sixteen, he declared himself an artist and reportedly painted every day for the rest of his life. After attending art school in Rochester, he enrolled in the Art Students League in New York City and spent several summers in Woodstock, New York, studying with Charles Rosen and John F. Carlson, the latter being his most influential teacher. His forte was snowscenes, which he frequently painted in the Genesee Valley on his family farm near Fairport. He also spent many summers near Cape Ann, Massachusetts. He exhibited widely and won three Hallgarten Prizes from the National Academy of Design, 1926, 1928, and 1932. He was a camouflage artist in the army during World War I, and he also did WPA murals for the Federal Arts Project during the Depression years. His work is in numerous museums including the National Museum of American Art, the Memorial Art Gallery and Strong Museum of Rochester, New York; the Fairport Museum of Fairport, New York; and the Rockport Art Association in Massachusetts."

Anthony Thieme (Massachusetts/California, 1888-1954) impressionistic oil on canvas painting depicting two figures on a country road lined by trees in brilliant autumn foliage on each side, leading to a small cottage with body of water in the background. A partly cloudy blue sky is overhead. Signed "A Thieme" lower left. Housed in a giltwood Arts and Crafts style frame with carved corner elements. Sight: 29 1/2" H x 35 3/8" W. Framed: 38 1/2" H x 44 1/4" W. Provenance: Estate of Russell McAdoo, Murfreesboro, TN. Biography: Anthony Thieme was born in the Dutch port city of Rotterdam in 1888. He studied at the Academy of Fine Arts in Rotterdam, at the Royal Academy at the Hague, as an apprentice to George Hoecker, a well known stage designer in Dusseldorf, Germany, and to Antonio Mancini, an Italian Impressionist. After completing his studies, Thieme journeyed throughout Europe and South America, working in stage design to support his travels. Thieme first came to the United States in 1917 and initially worked as a set designer and book illustrator first in New York and later in Boston. By the late 1920s, Thieme had married and moved from Boston to Cape Ann in Rockport, Massachusetts, an emerging art colony. Like the other Rockport artists, his style was influenced by Impressionism, with special attention paid to the effects of light, but also by the Dutch tradition of seascape painting. Throughout his career, Thieme favored painting en plein air, or outside, because it allowed him to better capture the atmosphere's fleeting effects. He has been referred to as the "Master of Light and Shadow." Thieme's paintings were often met with critical acclaim and were displayed at galleries in New York, London, and Paris. He also established the Thieme School of Art at Cape Ann in 1929 and taught classes out of his studio until 1943. After the accidental destruction of his studio in 1946, he traveled south to Charleston, South Carolina and was inspired by the tropical foliage and coastal light. He spent two months in Charleston, before continuing on to Florida, the Caribbean, and Central America. Until his death in 1954, Thieme spent his summers in Rockport and the winter months based in St. Augustine, Florida Throughout his career, Thieme exhibited his work widely and was active in numerous art associations and clubs. He participated in exhibitions across the country including ones at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts, and the Corcoran Gallery in Washington, D.C. He was a member of the National Arts Club, the American Watercolor Society, the Salmagundi Club, the Boston Art Club, the Art Alliance of America, and the Rockport Art Association.

Framed: 19 1/4" H x 22 1/2" W. Biography: "Born in Portland, Maine, Walter Griffin became one of the better known landscape painters in Connecticut in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. His father was a carver of ship figureheads, and Walter grew up with exposure to art through his father's artist friends. At age sixteen, he began five years of study at the Boston Museum of Fine Arts school, and then went to New York where he studied at the Art Students League, and in 1882 enrolled in the National Academy of Design in New York. There he associated with William Merritt Chase, Willard Metcalf, and Emil Carlsen. In 1887, he went to France for a ten-year period and studied at the Academie Colarossi and the Ecole des Beaux Arts with Jean Paul Laurens and exhibited at the 1889 Paris Salon. He also painted at the village of Barbizon with Francois Millet. By 1898, he was in Hartford, Connecticut where he set up a studio and taught at a local art school. He also founded and taught at an art school in Quebec between 1897 and 1899. In 1889, he married Lillian Baynes, an associate from his art school teaching. Much of his landscape painting was in the environs of Farmington, Connecticut, which he called the "Barbizon of America" because of its bucolic charms. In 1903, he began painting in Old Lyme, and the artists there, especially Childe Hassam, influenced him to a brighter, more colorful palette. He became so intrigued with landscape painting that he gave up teaching. However, by 1908, he became itinerant because his marriage was unhappy. He moved around between Europe, especially France, and other parts of New England including Portland, Maine. In 1922, he was elected to the National Academy. After his death in 1935, the Academy held a joint memorial exhibition of his work and that of his close friend, Child Hassam. However, his work was largely forgotten until the mid 1970s because his sister had stored away most of his paintings. The Vose Galleries of Boston played a major part in exposing his painting to the public." (source: Michael David Zellman, "300 Years of American Art" and Peter Falk, "Who Was Who in American Art").

Framed: 20 1/4" H x 24 3/8" W. Biography: Sometimes referred to as "The Caribbean Gaugin" for his use of bold colors and depictions of island life, Angel Botello Barros, later known simply as Angel Botello, was born in Galicia, Spain. He moved to Bordeaux, France with his family in the 1920s and studied for four years at L'Ecole des Beaux Arts in Paris. In 1935 he returned to Spain to study at the Academia de Bellas artes de San Fernando in Madrid. The Spanish Civil War disrupted his life and education. He joined the army as a cartographer, and eventually was reunited with his family in France in a refugee camp. They resettled in the Dominican Republic, where Botello's career flourished. Many of his paintings created at this time were presented at the Latin American Art Exposition at the Riverside Museum in 1940. His paintings gained the attention of the Peruvian ambassador, who invited Botello to show them in Port-au-Prince, Haiti in 1944. There Botello met his future wife, Christiane. The couple lived in Haiti for about ten years until the 1950's when they moved to San Juan, Puerto Rico. In 1953, they opened an art gallery at the Caribe Hilton Hotel.

110 Lot 110: Mississippi Gov. Alcorn Coin Silver Pitcher & Goblets Mississippi Gov. Alcorn Coin Silver Pitcher & Goblets Lot 110: Mississippi Gov. Alcorn Coin Silver Pitcher & Goblets

Gorham coin silver water pitcher and two goblets, all monogrammed "Alcorn" and descended in the family of James Lusk Alcorn, KY politician, Confederate General, Governor of Mississippi, and U.S. Senator. Pitcher, marked with early Gorham Lion-anchor-G marks and stamped 290 COIN, features a draped ribbed handle with Bacchus or Satyr mask; a flared, scalloped rim and spout; acanthus, egg and dart banding at neck, and a body with elaborate Rococo style repousse floral bouquets and central cartouche with engraved monogram ALCORN, all on a ribbed, spreading footring. 11" H. 39.17 oz troy. Goblets are unmarked with beaded rims, grape clusters, leaves and vine motifs surrounding cartouches engraved ALCORN, and beaded foot rings. 6 5/8" H. 11.75 oz troy. Combined weight: 50.92 oz troy. Provenance: Private Indiana collection, acquired from Benjamin Solomon Antiques of Indianapolis, who acquired the pieces from the great grandson of Gov. Alcorn. Note: The High Victorian style pitcher bears a strong resemblance to the Gorham silver tea set acquired by First Lady Mary Todd Lincoln in 1861, with its masks, Rococo floral vignettes, and naturalistic leaf forms. That pattern was not made expressly for the White House but is believed to have been an off-the-shelf item. Ref. Charles H. Carpenter, "Gorham Silver," pp. 54-57. Biography: James Lusk Alcorn was born in Illinois, and attended college in Kentucky. He served in the Kentucky House of Representatives in 1843 before moving to Mississippi, where he set up a law practice in Panola County. His practice flourished, allowing him to amass large holdings of land and slaves. A Whig, he served in the Mississippi House of Representatives and Mississippi Senate in the 1840s and 50s, and initially opposed Secession. But when the Civil War began, he joined the Confederacy and served as a Brigadier General for 18 months. Two of his sons died during the war. Alcorn managed to hold on to his wealth by trading cotton with the North, and by the time the war ended, he was estimated to be one of the 50 wealthiest men in the South. Now a Republican, Alcorn supported suffrage for Freedmen, endorsed the 14th Amendment, and became the leader of the Scalawags. He was elected Governor of Mississippi in 1869 and served until 1871, when he resigned to become a U.S. Senator. An advocate of education, he supported (segregated) public schools for African American students and a new college for African American students in Mississippi, now known as Alcorn University. Although a former slaveholder himself, he called slavery "a cancer upon the body of the Nation". Alcorn lived and died at his plantation, Eagle's Nest, in Coahoma County. He was married to Mary C. Stewart of Kentucky and, following her death in 1849, to Amelia Walton Glover of Alabama. He is buried in the cemetery on his family's former property; the house was destroyed by fire many years ago. Source: National Governor's Association website; Congressional Globe, 42 Congress 2 Session, pp. 246-247; Eric Foner, "Reconstruction" (1988). Condition: Overall very good condition. Pitcher: several scattered minor scratches and very small dents, under 1/4". Goblets: The section of foot next to the base of the stem has a lower profile on one goblet than the other, possibly a result of dents being repaired or possibly as made (they are otherwise identical). Goblets otherwise in excellent condition with minimal scratching and a few tiny dents. No additional monograms (other than Alcorn) or monogram removal on any of the pieces. [See more photos →]

Biography: "Born in Portsmouth, New Hampshire, Alfred Bricher grew up in Newburyport, Massachusetts, and by 1851 was working in Boston. He became a professional painter in 1858, after meeting Charles Temple Dix and William Stanley Haseltine while sketching at Mount Desert, Maine. The following year he had his own studio in Newburyport. During the 1860s, Bricher made pictures for L. Prang and CompanyÕs print catalogue; like many New England artists of this period, he sought to bring his work before a wider public. In 1868 he married and moved his studio to New York, but over the next decades spent a great deal of time traveling, primarily sketching seascapes up and down the Atlantic coast. Most of his summer trips were to the New England states. On these trips he made landscape studies that were later transformed into oils and luminous watercolors. He was particularly impressed with Grand Manan Island off the Maine coast in the Bay of Fundy, whose rugged cliffs and surrounding sea he drew and painted for seventeen years."

Provenance: Estate of Carl Klein, Brentwood, TN. Biography: "A student of the sky, waves, and snow-covered hills of Maine and Vermont, Jay Connaway belonged to the generation that presented the region as timeless and quiet in the face of modernity and ensured that the image of New England maintained a prominent role in the American imagination. Connaway enjoyed a reputation as one of the most promising young marine painters of the 1920s. Prolific, well-known, and highly regarded both as an artist and a teacher, Connaway moved to Maine in 1922 and took up permanent residence on Monhegan Island with his wife Louise in 1931. For 17 years, Connaway observed and painted the ocean and its many moods in the tradition of Winslow Homer and Rockwell Kent before moving to Vermont in 1947 where he lived out his life. Born in Indiana, Connaway studied in New York City at the Arts Students League under William Merritt Chase before interrupting his studies to volunteer for service in the First World War. Upon discharge from the army, Connaway studied in Paris at the Academie Julian and the Ecole des Beaux-Arts before returning to the United States and settling in New England. Sticking to his guns as abstraction gained in popularity in the years after World War II, Connaway's bold brushwork and subtle palate served as hallmarks of his unique style of masculine impressionism. Connaway enjoyed close to 90 one-man shows in his lifetime. He was elected an associate of the National Academy of Design in 1933 and a full academician in 1943. His work was exhibited at the leading galleries of his day, including Macbeth, Vose, Kennedy, and Doll & Richards. In his own lifetime, Connaway's vision of the landscape of New England could be found hanging at the Art Institute of Chicago, Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, Corcoran Gallery of Art, and Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts."

Note: The USS Smith Briggs was a Union Army gunboat destroyed in the American Civil War. Originally a tugboat built in East Albany, NY for the Schuyler Steam Towing Company, it was named for Smith Briggs, Freight Agent of the Hudson River Railroad. The private ship was leased by the U.S. Government for use in the Civil War and converted into a gunboat in 1863. During the Battle of Smithfield in Virginia on Feb. 1, 1864, it was hit and run aground, with its crew taken prisoner. Confederate soldiers and civilians converged on the ship and looted it, taking its eagle figurehead and anything else on board of value they could find. The ship was then set on fire and blown to bits. The exact connection of this silver tea service to the boat – including whether it was ever actually used onboard – is unknown. It may have been made after the ship's destruction as a consolation gift to Smith Briggs, the Hudson River Railroad executive for whom the ship was originally named. Condition: Excellent condition.

During his growing years where he was raised on a farm in Fairport, a Rochester suburb, he was exposed to a variety of artistic movements including the Hudson River School painters, tonalist tradition, Ashcan School, American impressionism, and early modernism. At the age of sixteen, he declared himself an artist and reportedly painted every day for the rest of his life. After attending art school in Rochester, he enrolled in the Art Students League in New York City and spent several summers in Woodstock, New York, studying with Charles Rosen and John F. Carlson, the latter being his most influential teacher. His forte was snowscenes, which he frequently painted in the Genesee Valley on his family farm near Fairport. He also spent many summers near Cape Ann, Massachusetts. He exhibited widely and won three Hallgarten Prizes from the National Academy of Design, 1926, 1928, and 1932. He was a camouflage artist in the army during World War I, and he also did WPA murals for the Federal Arts Project during the Depression years. His work is in numerous museums including the National Museum of American Art, the Memorial Art Gallery and Strong Museum of Rochester, New York; the Fairport Museum of Fairport, New York; and the Rockport Art Association in Massachusetts."

Housed under glass in a giltwood frame with linen liner. Sight: 16″ H x 28″ W. Framed: 25 1/2″ H x 37 1/4″ W. Biography: John Wesley Chumley was born in 1928 in Rochester, Minnesota while his father, a Tennessee native, was in his surgical residency at Mayo Clinic. He attended McCampbell School and the Tennessee Military Institute in Sweetwater, Tennessee. His concentration on art quickly grew. His post-graduate study under Walter Stuempfig at the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts further convinced him that his field was realism and the rural countryside his stimulus. As he refined his work, there were other influential centers of art along the way–the Ringling School of Art in Sarasota, Florida, where he met his wife Bettye (Skip) Roberts; and the Fort Worth Center of Art, Fort Worth, Texas, where he was artist-in-residence from 1958-1961. In 1961 the couple moved to a 200-acre farm in Middleton, VA that provided scenery, wildlife, plants and inspiration for the artist. Chumley’s character and personality were reflected in the choice of his chief medium–egg tempera, the most difficult and “slowest,” although he also painted in watercolors and oil. His painstaking representation of scenery, plants, and lifelike human and animal subjects with tempera–a tedious process involving a mixture of pigment, egg yolk, and water which dried quickly–enabled him to express his perception of light. As John observed, “Light is my bag.” (source: Adapted from Askart, taken from http://www.fountaincitytnhistory.info/People5-Chumley.htm with the permission of Fountain City Historian J.C. Tumblin) Condition: Watercolor overall excellent condition. Frame with a few slight abrasions. [See more photos →]

Framed: 36 1/2" H x 57" W. Biography: "Edmund Niemann was born in Islington, London in 1813. His father, John Diedrich Niemann, was a native of Minden, Westphalia and was a member of Lloyd's, working in the City of London. As a young man, Edmund was employed as a clerk at Lloyd's, but he decided to devote himself to art and in 1839 settled in High Wycombe, Buckinghamshire, mostly painting out of doors. Though he especially enjoyed painting the scenery of the Thames and of the River Swale, near Richmond in Yorkshire, many other areas of the British Isles are covered in the corpus of his work. Between 1844 and 1872, he exhibited paintings at a wide range of prestigious galleries including the Royal Academy, the British Institution, the Society of British Artists in Suffolk St, the Royal Scottish Academy, the Royal Institute, the Glasgow Institute, the Paris Salon, the Liverpool Academy of Arts and the Manchester Academy of Fine Arts. The first picture exhibited was a view "On the Thames, near Great Marlow, Bucks" — a small canvas shown at the Royal Academy in 1844. Niemann and a number of other artists, including Edward Armitage were dissatisfied with the exclusiveness showed by the management of several leading art societies. In 1848 Niemann returned to London for the foundation of the 'Free Exhibition' held in the Chinese Gallery at Hyde Park Corner. This exhibition opened with 500 works of art including sculpture. In 1850 this became the Portland Gallery, Regent Street, and Niemann was chosen as one of the trustees and honorary secretary. The society later assumed the name 'The National Institution'. The existence of the society was short lived with 1861 seeing the last of their exhibitions. Niemann lived at Mount Vernon House in Hampstead in the 1850s. His paintings are characterized by versatility, natural colors, and visual realism, often in the romantic artistic style of J.M.W. Turner, Corot and Caspar David Friedrich. His son, Edward H. Niemann, was also a painter imitating his father's style. Ill for a number of years in his later life, Niemann died suddenly at Brixton Hill, Surrey of apoplexy on 15 April 1876."

By some accounts, he fought in the Revolutionary War as a teen. Other accounts say it was actually his father, Frederick Davis, who fought, securing the land grant that prompted 18 year old John Davis to strike out for what was then Davidson County, North Carolina. Davis fought Indians in the territory, doing battle at Buchanan Station in 1792, and worked as a Davidson County surveyor. He brought his entire family, including Frederick Davis and sister Ciddy Davis (who would marry the son of Nashville founding father James Robertson), to Davidson County. In 1798, he began a family of his own by marrying a Virginia-born girl, Dorcas Gleaves. One of their daughters, Nancy Davis, married Edward Dickson Hicks, but the young couple died not long after she gave birth to their son, Edward Dickson Hicks II. John and Dorcas Davis raised the child, and all the while, John Davis was surveying and amassing land. The property around their farm grew, as did the red brick home, and by the time of his death in 1853, Davis's legacy included more than 30,000 acres of land–and, according to his obituary, "an unspotted reputation for integrity and honesty, which was never questioned." 7th-21st items: Fifteen (15) land indentures and other documents, including copies, pertaining to property owned by John Davis of Davidson County, TN and others, one (1) signed by Andrew Ewing (1783-1813), the first County Court Clerk for the Cumberland Territory, dated circa 1797-1848. Note: "The office of Court Clerk was created in 1780 by the Cumberland Compact, the original articles of agreement signed by settlers who established Fort Nashborough. Andrew Ewing, a Revolutionary War veteran born in Pennsylvania, and who arrived in 1780 with John Donelson, was appointed as the first County Court Clerk for the Cumberland Territory. Ewing was reappointed in 1783 when Davidson County, North Carolina was established. During his tenure he set the precedence for transcribing the county's earliest legal proceedings, recording of all land deeds and transactions, wills, marriages, births, and deaths in the territory. He even transcribed some of Founder James Robertson's state documents. When Tennessee became a state in 1796, Ewing remained as County Court Clerk. He held the position until his death in 1813."

Provenance: the Collection of Sylvia Roberts, Nashville, TN, formerly in the collection of Dr. Benjamin Caldwell of Nashville; acquired Brunk Auctions, May 20, 2006, lot 508. Biography: Carroll Cloar was known for incorporating nostalgic images from his Southern childhood, often merged with dreamlike motifs, into powerful magic realist scenes, 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, CloarÕs 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.

Framed: 31" H x 22 1/2" W. Provenance: Art Collection of former Watkins College of Art; proceeds benefit scholarship endowment for students in the new Watkins College of Art at Belmont University. Note: In 1920, the artist Jacques de Villon was commissioned by the Galerie Bernheim-Jeune to create aquatint engravings based on the canvases of several important painters including Matisse, Modigliani, Picasso, and even Villon himself, "for the purpose of promoting Impressionism and supporting contemporary creation. … No photomechanical processes were used in this project and the resulting prints are miracles of the engraver's art." (Orozco,p. 16). Villon employed a painstaking and time consuming 18th century color engraving method using three and sometimes four plates to complete the final proof, in an effort to create a final print as true as possible to the original painting. After the original run of about 200 prints (plus several artist proofs) for the Galerie Bernheim-Jeune, these plates were acquired by the Chalcographie du Louvre, which reissued an unknown number of the Villon prints in the mid 20th century, prior to Villon's death. For an excellent explanation of Villon's process as well as a detailed catalog of his prints, refer to Miguel Orozco, "The Prints of Jacques Villon Vol. 1" https://www.academia.edu/42703372/The_prints_of_Jacques_Villon_Vol_1_Interpretation_works Condition: Both overall good condition.

Provenance: Estate of Carl Klein, Brentwood, TN. Biography: "In a wide-ranging career spent in both Europe and America, Bernhard Gutmann created paintings, prints, and graphic designs, taught art, served as an arts administrator, and published several art manuals. Gutmann was born in Hamburg, Germany, the son of a merchant; he was educated in elite schools and attended the art academies of Dusseldorf and Karlsruhe. Rejecting the pedantry of academic training, he worked in Haarlem, in the Netherlands, before emigrating to the United States to join his brother, an electrical engineer and inventor, in Lynchburg, Virginia. The energetic and gregarious Gutmann organized the Lynchburg Art Club, painted a mural, designed book illustrations, and taught widely, including at the newly founded Randolph-Macon Woman's College. In 1899 he moved to New York City to work as a graphic designer while continuing to paint using the dark color schemes in which he had been schooled in Germany. With his marriage in 1907 to financial heiress Bertha Goldman, Gutmann was freed permanently to pursue his art with little concern for the opinions of critics and patrons. Working in Europe for the next five years, he embraced the bright colors and vibrant brushwork of impressionism in his landscapes, figure paintings, and still lifes. On his return to the United States in 1912, Gutmann pursued numerous opportunities to exhibit his work in his adopted homeland. He contributed paintings to several conservative juried exhibitions, but he also was represented in the so-called Armory Show of 1913, a showcase for the latest trends in European and American modern art. Gutmann's work met with considerable critical favor even as it shifted toward the concerns of post-impressionism, with its expressive use of strong color, richly textured surfaces, and powerful outlining of forms. In 1913, Gutmann and his family joined the artists' colony at Silvermine, Connecticut, one of several East Coast centers for the development of indigenous American artistic expression at the turn of the twentieth century. Gutmann helped organize the Silvermine Guild of Artists in 1922. He returned to his Silvermine home after a three-year visit to Spain and Paris. He then turned his attention to ceramics and to printmaking. A trip to Europe just after the collapse of the Stock Market in 1929 inspired a new burst of creativity in various drawing media and resulted in exhibitions at several New York City galleries. In 1934, Gutmann was appointed regional director of the Public Works of Art Project, a federal artists' relief program, for New Canaan, Connecticut. The artist died two years later, in 1936. Today, his work is held at the Terra Museum of American Art." (Source: the Terra Foundation Collection website). Condition: Overall good condition with buckling to canvas.

582 Lot 582: Limestone Sculpture of a Woman, attr. Puryear Mims Limestone Sculpture of a Woman, attr. Puryear Mims Lot 582: Limestone Sculpture of a Woman, attr. Puryear Mims

Attributed to Thomas Puryear Mims (American/Tennessee, 1906-1975), limestone sculpture depicting a standing nude woman on an integral base; the subject's head is tilted up toward her right side, and her right arm is stretched across her torso. Unsigned. 29" H x 10 1/2" W x 7 1/2" D. Sculpture weighs 95 pounds. Provenance: The Estates of Ora and Eleanor Eads, Nashville, TN. Biography: Born into a distinguished Southern literary family, Puryear Mims earned an English degree from Vanderbilt University and taught the subject for a brief period. His fascination with sculpture eventually led him to study at the Academie Julian in Paris and the Art Students League in New York, where he trained under two of America's pioneer abstractionists, Robert Laurent and William Zorach. He also worked in the studio of the sculptor Saul Baizerman in New York. In 1934 he worked on the Mount Rushmore project as an assistant to Gutzon Borglum, but found it to be more "mechanical" than artistic. He returned to the Art Students League and eventually, to Nashville. Mims taught art at Vanderbilt University and in 1958 was appointed Sculptor in Residence. He created numerous public sculptures around Nashville, participated in several one-man and multi-artist exhibits, and, following his death, was the subject of a retrospective at Cheekwood. While Mims's early work was largely representational, he was influenced by cubism in the late 1950s and evolved into an abstract, organic, curvilinear style of sculpture. Women as voluptuous, creative beings, in particular Eve and Athena, were frequent subjects in the 1960s. Mims retired from Vanderbilt in 1972 and taught privately until his death three years later.

He began his professional career as a paint chemist at Pittsburgh Plate Glass Company but gradually gave it up in favor of painting. He studied art at Milwaukee Normal School under Gustave Moeller and George Oberteuffer and at Wisconsin State Normal School under Alexander Mueller from 1921 to 1923. His understanding of oil paints led to his interest in easel painting. Being very methodical, he numbered and kept meticulous records of his 1,381 paintings. At first he copied others' works, but then began doing his own compositions. He was a member of the Walrus Club in Milwaukee, and a member of the Wisconsin Painters & Sculptors. Hicks was very fond of painting Wisconsin landscapes. They are quite literal renderings of nature, but he also played with special effects of lighting. He particularly liked to capture shoreline atmospheres on canvas."(Source: The Museum of Wisconsin Art). Condition: Overall good condition.

Best known for his depictions of the Tennessee Walking Horse, Streeter also created scores of other images using wrapped and twisted wire. By 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."
