187 Lot 187: C.M. Russell Bronze, Spirit of the Buffalo, 1929, CA Art Bronze Foundry C.M. Russell Bronze, Spirit of the Buffalo, 1929, CA Art Bronze Foundry Lot 187: C.M. Russell Bronze, Spirit of the Buffalo, 1929, CA Art Bronze Foundry

Charles Marion Russell (American, 1864-1926), "Smoking with the Spirit," California Art Bronze Foundry, circa 1929. Bronze sculpture depicting a Native American Medicine Man seated on a naturalistic ground, smoking a long pipe with the skull of a buffalo. Signature "CM Russell" with a copyright symbol, skull mark, and California Art Bronze Foundry mark to base. Mounted on a later graduated oval wooden base. Sculpture: 4 1/2" H x 9" W x 5 1/2" D. Overall with base: 6 7/8" H x 10 5/8" W x 8 1/8" D. Note: According to the book "Charles M. Russell, Sculptor," by Rick Stewart, about a dozen lifetime castings of "Smoking with the Spirit of the Buffalo" (modeled in 1914) were produced by the B. Zoppo foundry, and a few were made the same year Russell died, in 1926, by Roman Bronze Works. In 1929, Russell's widow Nancy acquired the model for this work from Roman Bronze Works and had the California Art Bronze company produce an unknown number of casts. Stewart writes, "in his 1949 inventory of the Russell Bronzes, Homer Britzman maintained that a total of eighteen casts had been made of the subject. If this is accurate, it seems probable that Zoppo cast as many as twelve copies in 1916, per the original agreement. That would leave only six casts to be assigned to both Roman Bronze Works and California Art Bronze Foundry; currently, at least three Roman Bronze Works casts and two bearing the mark of the California Art Bronze Foundry are known… Besides an example in the Amon Carter Museum Collection, Roman Bronze Works Casts are in the collection of the Gilcrease Museum and the National Cowboy Hall of Fame. One California Art Bronze cast is in a private collection, and another was sold at Sotheby's on October 31, 1975." The sculpture being sold in this auction is believed to be the California Art Bronze casting in the private collection referred to in Stewart's book (page 203). It has been in the same family since being acquired directly from Nancy Russell in 1929.

Biography: "Cadwalader Ringgold (1802-1867) was an officer in the United States Navy who served in the United States Exploring Expedition, later headed an expedition to the Northwest and, after initially retiring, returned to service during the Civil War with the rank of captain. While in command of the frigate Sabine on November 1, 1861, he effected the rescue of a battalion of 400 Marines from Maryland whose transport steamer, Governor, was sinking during a severe storm near Port Royal, South Carolina. In February 1862, he was a part of the search and rescue of the ship of the line Vermont which had lost her rudder in a storm. For these rescues, Ringgold received commendations from the Maryland Legislature and the U.S. Congress, along with a gold medal from the Life Saving Benevolent Association. Promoted to commodore on July 16, 1862, he was sent (still on the Sabine), to cruise the Azores, Cape Verde Islands, the coast of Brazil and then back to New York in a search for the Confederate raider CSS Alabama from November 1862 to February 1863. In mid-1863, Ringgold's assignment was to search (again unsuccessfully) in the vicinity of Bermuda and then the New England coast for the bark CSS Tacony, another Confederate raider. For reasons of age, he was retired on August 20, 1864, and placed on the rear admiral (retired) list in 1866 (a promotion that was given to all commanders of squadrons). In retirement, he lived at 18 East Eighteenth Street (at Union Square) in New York City. Ringgold, who had never married, died of apoplexy (stroke) in New York on April 29, 1867."

Framed: 43 1/2" H x 45 1/2" Q. Biography: Rudolph Ingerle, sometimes called 'The Painter of the Smokies', was born to a Moravian family, immigrated to the U.S. as a child and studied at the Art Institute of Chicago. He was an early founder of the Indiana School of Painting in Brown County and the Society of Ozark Painters. Ingerle first visited the Smoky Mountains in 1920 and fell in love with Eastern Tennessee and Western North Carolina. At that time, the natural beauty of the area was threatened by logging companies. Ingerle painted numerous landscapes there and is among the artists credited with raising awareness of the need for protection, which helped result in the establishment of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park in 1934. When not painting in the mountains, Ingerle maintained a studio in Chicago from which he exhibited paintings in many major museums and galleries including the Art Institute of Chicago and the Pennsylvania Academy, and one man shows at the Mint Museum and Hickory Museum of Art during his lifetime. His work was featured in the 2006 Art of Tennessee exhibit at the Frist Center for the Visual Arts and will also be featured in an upcoming exhibit on Smoky Mountain landscapes at the Tennessee State Museum.

197 Lot 197: Jo Davidson Bronze Sculpture of Ida Rubinstein, dated Paris 1909 Jo Davidson Bronze Sculpture of Ida Rubinstein, dated Paris 1909 Lot 197: Jo Davidson Bronze Sculpture of Ida Rubinstein, dated Paris 1909

Joseph (Jo) Davidson (New York/Paris, 1883-1952) patinated bronze sculpture depicting Russian dancer and arts patron Ida Rubinstein in her role as Cleopatra in the 1909 ballet by Michael Fokine. Signed and dated, JO DAVIDSON PARIS 1909 at the back of base. 11 1/8″ H x 11 1/4″ W x 5 1/2″ D. Note: This sculpture was inspired during Davidson’s studies at the Ecole des Beaux-Arts by witnessing Fokine’s production for the Ballet Russes in 1909 which celebrated the strikingly beautiful heiress, Ida Rubinstein (Russia, 1885-1960), and her flair for drama and mystery. Born to one of the richest families in Russia, she defied her family and class to perform in and eventually own her own ballet company. Rubinstein’s beauty, dramatic personality, and considerable fortune drew the attention of many visual artists of her time. (Source: “Dance and American Art: A Long Embrace” by Sharyn R. Udall). Artist Biography (adapted from the Los Angeles County Museum of Art): Joseph “Jo” Davidson was born in New York City and studied at the Art Students League before attending Yale University to study medicine. After working as a sculptor’s studio assistant, he traveled to Paris to attend the Ecole des Beaux-Arts, where he met Gertrude Stein and Gertrude Vanderbilt Whitney, the latter of whom became Davidson’s patron. He exhibited widely after his return to the United States, including in the Armory Show of 1913, before and after serving as an artist-correspondent in World War I. During his lifetime, Davidson sculpted portraits of many of the most prominent American figures in the entertainment and political realms, such as James Joyce, Aldous Huxley, Gertrude Stein, Albert Einstein, Herbert Hoover, Franklin D. Roosevelt, Woodrow Wilson, and many more.

Circle of Jean Francois Lagrenee (French, 1725-1805), monumental 18th century oil on canvas mythological painting titled Hercules Going to War, depicting the Roman god departing a marble portico with club in hand and cherub at his side, leaving behind three women (one likely Minerva) and a child. Sight: 93" H x 61 1/2" W. Frame: 99 1/2" H x 67 3/4" W. Note: this painting bears an old plaque attributing it to German painter Anton Raphael Mengs (1728-1779), however, we believe the theme and style are more closely related to that of Jean Francois Lagrenee. Provenance: the estate of David Caldwell, Nashville, Tennessee. This painting, and its companion in the next lot, depicting Hercules Returning from War, have been a focal point of two important Belle Meade mansions in Nashville. Most recently the centerpieces of David and Yvonne Caldwell's home, they were acquired approximately 30 years ago from James Fowler Sr. of Nashville. Fowler acquired the paintings more than 20 years before that time, when he purchased his own mansion in Belle Meade, formerly owned by Mrs. Sally Smith.

CONDITION: Relined, restored and revarnished approximately 60 years ago; craquelure and scattered inpainting throughout.

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. Moore, originally published October 8, 2017, https://tennesseeencyclopedia.net/entries/burton-callicott/).

Herr, USA, under Surgeon USV in Charge, Dr. Bowman Bigelow (B.B.) Breed. One of the CDVs depicts an unidentified woman in dark dress with braided ornamentation, possibly a nurse. BACKGROUND: After the Union took control of Nashville in February of 1862, the city became the Army’s base of operations in the Western Theatre. It was the only southern state capital in Union hands and was strategically situated from a geographic standpoint. Northern troops anticipated Confederates would attempt to re-take the city, and established numerous fortifications and hospitals surrounding the Cumberland River. The Battle of Nashville took place December 15-16, 1864, resulting in a Union victory that many historians believe sealed the fate of the Confederacy. But the city remained otherwise relatively stable during the war, and a number of Federal hospitals were established, including General Hospital No. 1 on College Hill. It comprised a former church and a former gun factory, converted to house 936 beds, and was under the direction of Dr. B.B. Breed. ZEBEDEE CULVER of Quincy, Michigan, enlisted in Company C, 19th infantry, as Sergeant July 28, 1862 (age 22). Was taken prisoner at Thompson's Station, Tennessee on March 5, 1863 and exchanged on May 4, 1863. He participated in the battles of Resaca, Georgia and New Hope Church and was wounded in action at Peach Tree Creek, July 20, 1864. He was transferred to the Veteran's Reserve Corps March 15, 1865 and discharged for disability at Nashville, Tennessee June 6, 1865 from the 160th company, Second Battalion, Veteran Reserve Corps. (Source: Record of Service of Michigan Volunteers in the Civil War 1861-1865).Sgt. Culver's letters are all written to his brother, Ben, from various locations, mostly in Tennessee. He writes of camp and hospital conditions including a smallpox outbreak, speculation about developments in the war elsewhere, and news of fellow "boys from Quincy". Culver, who appears to have been well educated for his time, writes with skill, some humor, and fairly legible penmanship. Some of the highlights include: HEADQUARTERS OF COMPANY C,19th Michigan Infantry, Near Danville, KY, illegible date, 1862: letter describing terrible conditions of Confederate prisoners, and his thoughts on some of his superior officers including Major Shafter or Shafer ("as noble a man as ever lived") and a scathing description of "Doc Clarke": "While he was principal of the post hospital at Nicholasville [Camp Nelson, KY], he would have a post mortem examination of all that died. And one of our co said that he would take his oath that he saw old Doc Clarke take some of their intestines and throw them out of the window because they were beloated [sic] so that they could not get them back. And the dogs were seen eating them afterwards. Ben, if I ever have a good chance at the old son of a bitch, I will cripple him so that he will never feed my insides to the dogs. If I don't you can shoot me for a butternut hide. It makes me so mad to think about him that I can't half write." He describes singing with other soldiers ("there are 4 of us in here that can howl the notes a little and when we get engaged we make the old tent get right up and howl…and it serves to pass the time away pretty well").CAMP DICK ROBINSON (KY), Dec. 12, 1862 : Descriptive letter of arriving at the camp to find, among other things, "three thousand barrels of pork here that the rebels left and about an acre of old wagons all chopped to pieces… and a few old cannons, one of them is a brass 6 pound Spanish gun which was made in the year 1723 and was taken from the Mexicans by Taylor and was got by the rebels at the Gosport Navy Yard." Culver also mentions his negative reaction to "the President's message" (likely the Emancipation Proclamation) saying it "stinks of compromise," and that "the only [way] this rebellion is put down so that it will stay is at the point of the bayonet, the extermination of every rebel both North and South and the immediate death of slavery." GUY'S (sp?) GAP, TN, July 8, 1863 – "I feel tip top this morning because we have rec'd news that Grant has got Vicksburg. Lee is all cut to pieces. Bragg is demolished and secession received a clip that made its head ache for a long time. Hip Hip hurrah. The boys are all in tip top spirits but have lots to do, about half the reg't are at work on the railroad…. We had a pretty rough march from Franklin to this place. It rained all the time and we had to come over a dirt road through the cedar woods. And where there were no rocks the mud was up to the wagon axles. The morning after we got in Murfreesboro I woke up and found the water full 4 inches deep in our bed. Our rations all wet. Knapsacks and cartridge boxes full and if my head had not been up on a chunk of wood I expect I should have been full too. The only dry thing there was about me was the inside of my canteen… I had to hunt quite a spell for my gun. But finally found it all covered up in the mud and water. There were nearly five days that I did not have hardly a dry thread in my clothes or a good hour's sleep." MURFREESBORO, TN, July 26, 1863: a cartoon drawing of "Old Morgan in Ohio" and a reference to the landscape laid waste by troops fighting the Battles of Murfreesboro and Stones River: "You can't see anything for 4 miles around the city but old camp grounds. Houses, barns, fences, in fact everything has been torn down. I was in a house yesterday that cost at least estimate $25,000. And there was nothing left but the bare walls. I made use of a part of the railing around the front porch. The only thing I could get my hands on."MCMINNVILLE, TN, March 23, 1864: briefly describes a skirmish with Rebel guerillas near McMinnville. "I heard Rebel bullets whistling around my ears the other night. I was on picket and the…I was in charge of was attacked by 10 guerillas…They fired 7 shots at us and we fired 12 at them. We wounded one man and one horse. They did not touch one of us but some of those shots came mighty close to me I tell you." NASHVILLE, TN – U.S. General Hospital No. 1, Nov. 27, 1864: "They say old Hood is about giving us a call here in Nashville. If he does I may get another finger knocked out, for all that are able to use a gun will have to go out and meet him." NASHVILLE, TN – U.S. General Hospital No. 1, April 2, 1865: "About the hospital, things move on finely. We have got an excellent Surgeon in Charge [Dr. B.B. Breed] to put things through. He has started another library, a chapel, two reading rooms, two gardens and is now trying to get up a singing school. If he fails in that it will be his first failure in anything he has undertaken since he has been here. We have all the books and papers we can read. They are furnished by the U.S. Christian Commission free of charge."NASHVILLE, TN, April 4, 1865 – "We received the news at noon yesterday of the Fall of Richmond and Petersburg and you had better believe there was some hallowing and and big goings on. Old "Negley" [likely Fort Negley] let loose 100 "blanks". Also the State House garrison forts…Zollicoffer and a host of smaller fry which with the muskets of the different regts garrisoning the city made it sound like the 15th and 16th of December [the Battle of Nashville]". Letter goes on to describe festivities lasting into the night as well as reaction from Secessionists. NASHVILLE, TN – U.S. General Hospital No. 1 (on US Christian Commission stationery), April 21, 1865: "The news of the tragedy in Washington [Lincoln's Assassination] came like a thunderbolt here. We were in the midst of celebrating recent victories when the news came and the reverse of feeling was beyond conception. Even among the Secession sympathizers the President's loss was deplored, for they had come to the conclusion that the rebel cause had gone under and that Lincoln was their protector from punishment which they richly deserve and which now there is little prospect for them to escape. I will send a paper home containing the proceedings in the city on the day of the President's funeral. One of the city papers estimated that there were 50,000 persons present. But I think they have got full 30,000 too many. I have seen a great many men together when it was known exactly how many were present and I think 20,000 is a fair estimate…"

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.

224 Lot 224: Carroll Cloar Drawing, Epitaph of Ezekiel Polk Carroll Cloar Drawing, Epitaph of Ezekiel Polk Lot 224: Carroll Cloar Drawing, Epitaph of Ezekiel Polk

Large framed Carroll Cloar (American, 1913-1993) graphite on paper drawing, "The Epitaph of Ezekiel Polk," depicting a little girl standing beside a tomb with lengthy inscription. Signed lower left. Sight: 38 1/2" H x 27 1/2" W. Frame: 39 1/4" H x 28 1/4" W. Note: this work is a study for a painting by the same name, featured on p. 140 of "Hostile Butterflies and Other Paintings" (Memphis State University Press, 1977). It was acquired by the consignor from Guy Northrup, a writer and arts editor for the Memphis Commercial Appeal, who wrote the introduction for the book. Colonel Ezekiel Polk was a Revolutionary War veteran, signer of the Mecklenburg Declaration, and grandfather of President James K. Polk. After the war, Polk's atheist beliefs brought him increasing conflicts with his neighbors, and by 1790 he resettled his family in Tennessee. He was a pioneer of the area now known as Hardeman County. Polk is said to have written his own epitaph, which appears on his tomb. Biography: Caroll 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 Adacemy of Arts under the artist George Oberteuffer. In 1936, he moved to New York to attend the Art Students League. There, Cloar's achievements earned him a McDowell fellowship which he used to travel across the American Southwest, West Coast, and Mexico. Cloar served with the Army Air Corps during World War II and upon his return, he was awarded a Guggenheim traveling scholarship to fund an extended sojourn to Central and South America. Two years later, several of his images were featured in a Life Magazine article titled 'Backwoods Boyhood,' and Cloar's career went on to receive additional national acclaim. By the mid-1950s, Cloar had settled permanently in Memphis, where he produced paintings, often executed in 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 artist selected to commemorate the inauguration of President Clinton.

Framed: 11 5/8" H x 11 1/8" W. Biography: "A native of Charleston, Elizabeth O'Neill Verner was an artist, teacher, and preservationist who became one of South Carolina's best known practitioners of the early twentieth century. Pastels and printmaking were her preferred media, and her images of residences, churches, and street scenes were widely recognized for their skill and authenticity, and for capturing the romantic sensibility of Charleston. She began her art training under the guidance of Alice Ravenel Huger Smith and then continued at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts in Philadelphia, beginning in 1901 for two years with noted instructor Thomas Anshutz. Following her time at the academy, she taught art in Aiken, South Carolina, before returning to Charleston. In 1907, she met and married E. Pettigrew Verner and raised their two children. She resumed her studies with Smith and turned her attention to depictions of her hometown, which she infused with the charm and local color that distinguishes Charleston. In land- and cityscapes, Verner often focused on the architecture and environment while deemphasizing any human presence. She eventually expanded her range to become an able portraitist and figurative painter." Source: The Johnson Collection.

Neoclassical French patinated and gilt bronze chime clock, the movement by Louis Moinet (1758-1853), the case likely by Pierre-Philippe Thomire (1751-1843), featuring a Roman goddess figure, probably Minerva, the goddess of Wisdom and War, leaning against a bronze plinth topped with books and decorated with a rooster and torches. The plinth is raised on a larger rectangular base with bas-relief ornamentation including a winged figure with tablet and cherub, a globe and other objects emblematic of learning and education.

Jefferson's clock was used in the White House and now resides at Monticello; in 1817 Monroe commissioned the "Minerva" clock (somewhat similar to this one but entirely in gilt bronze), which has adorned the White House Blue Room for more than 2 centuries. Louis Moinet was an important horologist, scholar and inventory who served as President of the Chronometry Society in Paris and taught at the Academie des Beaux-Arts. He was secretary to the eminent clockmaker Abraham Louis Breguet and in 1851 presented a chronometer at the Great Exhibition of London. He and bronzier Pierre-Philippe Thomire produced a number of important clocks for world leaders in the first half of the 19th century, including Napoleon Bonaparte, George IV of England and Tsar Alexander of Russia.

He was an active member of the Dallas Artists League from its inception in 1932 where he exerted his influence during the Great Depression in the evolution of Texas Regionalists art. Lester was also a founding member of the Lone Star Printmakers who created and exhibited lithographic prints. He taught at the school of the Dallas Museum of Fine Arts (Dallas Museum of Art) as well as at the College of Fine Arts at the University of Texas at Austin, where he also served as chairman from 1952-1954. Lester was highly influenced from the mid-1950s onwards by the striking color and compositions of Mexican artworks, particularly the works of Rufino Tamayo, which led his painting towards greater levels of abstraction. He has been exhibited at the Texas Centennial Exposition in Dallas, the Rockefeller Center, The New York World's Fair Exhibition, the Art Institute of Chicago, and the Pan American Union. His work is permanently exhibited in the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Whitney Museum, the Dallas Museum of Art, the Witte Museum, the Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth, and the American Embassy in Paris among many others.

At 16, he worked on boats on the bayous of Louisiana, where he completed sketches of African-American culture. In the spring of 1874 he met a German portrait painter named Hoffman in St. Louis, and became his assistant and pupil. In later years Joiner became an itinerant painter, and eventually established a studio in Louisville, KY. He concentrated on portraits for the first twenty years of his career. Later he became famous for his woodland scenes, especially of beech trees, and exhibited all over the world. It is known that he exhibited in a private gallery in Denmark in 1923. Joiner's work is noted for its unique use of light and shadow, recalling the great French landscape artists of the 19th century.

218 Lot 218: Meyer Wolfe regional Realist Lithograph, Vanderbilt Clinic Meyer Wolfe regional Realist Lithograph, Vanderbilt Clinic Lot 218: Meyer Wolfe regional Realist Lithograph, Vanderbilt Clinic

Meyer R. Wolfe (Tennessee/New York, 1897-1985), "Vanderbilt Clinic," 1939, American regional realist lithograph depicting a group of Black patients with weary expressions in a segregated waiting room at the Vanderbilt Medical Clinic in Nashville, Tennessee. A narrow doorway shows a white nurse, seated at a desk and reading, in an adjacent room. Titled and numbered "Ed 25" lower left. Signed and dated '39 lower right. Double matted and framed under glass in a giltwood frame. Sight: 13 5/8" H x 19" W. Framed: 18 1/4" H x 23 1/2" W. Note: this is perhaps the best recognized of a series of approximately 15 lithographs created by Wolfe depicting lives of African Americans in Nashville during the Jim Crow era, and speaks to healthcare challenges the artist observed facing many Black Nashvillians. There were 25 prints in the single edition; the stone plates used to create this and other prints in the series are no longer extant. This particular image, along with Wolfe's "Red Eye's Hall" and "Tuesday-Ophelia" from the same series, are among the labor related prints and drawings in the Ben and Beatrice Goldstein Foundation Collection at the Library of Congress; "Vanderbilt Clinic" is also in the collection of the San Francisco Museum of Art and Vanderbilt University. Biography: Meyer ("Mike") Wolfe was born into a Jewish Lithuanian immigrant family, the second of ten children. He was raised in a low-income, multiracial neighborhood of Nashville just north of the Tennessee State Capitol, where he observed the social and cultural lives of his African American friends. As a teen with an interest in drawing, he became a protege of Pulitzer Prize winning Nashville cartoonist Carey Orr. In 1917 he studied briefly at the Art Institute of Chicago and worked as an illustrator. In 1918 he moved to New York and met Ashcan School painter John Sloan, who became one of his most influential teachers. Wolfe traveled to Paris in 1926 to train at the Academie Julian in Paris. While overseas, he met (and later married) the fashion photographer Louise Dahl-Wolfe. Meyer exhibited at the San Francisco Art Association, the New York 1939 World's Fair, and in Nashville, where he later returned to live. However, much of his later life was spent supporting and managing his wife's career, and as a result, many of Wolfe's paintings and prints were never publicly shown or sold. His narrative lithographs of African American life in Nashville during the 1930s are considered among his most important works and very rarely come on the market. His work is also held by the National Museum of American Art-Smithsonian Institution, the Tennessee State Museum, and the Frederick R. Weisman Art Museum, Minneapolis.

Sawyer was the first untrained artist to have a one-man show at the gallery, and his second show there, in 1966, sold out. Shortly after this time, Sawyer traveled overseas. After his trip, for unknown reasons, Sawyer seems to have never painted again. He sought privacy, living quietly in Nashville, where he passed away in 2020. After 1966, his work went on to be exhibited at the Fine Arts Center at Cheekwood, and in the Art of Tennessee exhibit at the Frist Museum (2006).

Sight: 14 1/4" H x 18 1/2" W. Frame: 27 1/2" H x 32" W. Note: The elder brother of painter Gifford Beal, Reynolds was born in New York City. Beal painted the beaches in Provincetown, Key West, Rockport, Atlantic City and Wellfleet, circus scenes and carnivals. He used a variety of styles including Impressionism and Tonalism. As he got older, his work became more complex and vibrant. In addition to oils, he was admired as a watercolorist, and he and Gifford made Rockport, Massachusetts their home. Beal traveled widely. In November 1944, Reynolds and Gifford had a large joint exhibition at the Fitchburg Art Center (now Museum) in Fitchburg, MA, which included eighty-three oils, watercolors, and etchings that had been executed all over the world with subjects including Singapore, Trinidad, Samoa, China, Nassau, Egypt, Haiti, Cape Ann, Atlantic City, and Provincetown. By 1934, he was a participant in the Salmagundi Club, Lotus Club, Century Club, National Academy of Design, and the American Water Color Society. He was also a member of the Society of American Engravers and the National Arts Council. His progressive tenets marked him as a "modernist", and he helped found the Society of Independent Artists and the New Society of Artists, which consisted of fifty of the most important painters of the day, including George Bellows, Childe Hassam, John Sloan, William Glackens, and Maurice Prendergast.

211 Lot 211: Georgia Blizzard Folk Art Pottery Vase, Jacob's Well Georgia Blizzard Folk Art Pottery Vase, Jacob's Well Lot 211: Georgia Blizzard Folk Art Pottery Vase, Jacob's Well

Georgia Blizzard (also known as Georgia Michael, Virginia, 1919-2002) folk art pottery vase titled "Jacob's Well," rectangular form, with molded bibical scenes to each side, surmounted by a short, cylindrical neck with stipple decoration. Titled and signed "G. Blizzard" to underside of base. 8 3/4" H x 13 1/2" W x 7 1/4" D. Biography: Georgia Blizzard, also known as Georgia Michael, was born in Saltville, Virginia and lived in Chilhowie, Virginia. She had a mixed heritage including Apache and Irish ancestry. Her mother taught Blizzard and her sister how to create art using a pit-fire method. As a young girl, she began to make items from clay dug from a creek near her home. She continued to make items and "burn" them in a homemade "pit-fire" kiln on her property. During the Great Depression, she left school in order to be part of the National Youth Administration. She worked in a munitions factory in Bristol during World War II and after that, worked at a textile mill in Chilhowie until 1958. Blizzard contracted black lung and lost one of her lungs, and her husband was crippled in an accident in a coal mine and eventually their marriage failed; he subsequently died in 1954. Blizzard developed paranoid schizophrenia after these events and her art helped her deal with the feelings she needed to work through. She began making art for sale in the late 1950s and sold her pottery in her daughter Mary's shop on her property. In the early 1980s, her neighbor, Michael Martin, contacted a friend to take some of Blizzard's work to a gallery in Buckhead run by Judith Alexander, where Jonathan Williams discovered her work. Blizzard's works are on permanent display at the Smithsonian American Art Museum, The Abby Aldrich Rockefeller Folk Art Museum in Williamsburg, VA and The High Museum in Atlanta.

Wilkes was elected to the House of Commons several times, but was repeatedly expelled for attacking King George III and his loyalists. American patriots, including Boston's Sons of Liberty, rallied to the cry of "Wilkes and Liberty!" and incorporated his name and likeness into broadsides, drinking bowls, cuff links, and other items (Courtesy of Museum of the American Revolution).

CONDITION: Bowl in overall good condition with no chips or cracks. Examination under UV light reveals areas to exterior and interior that fluoresce, however, the glaze color and texture appears to be continuous throughout (please review UV photo).

White, Tennessee Historical Quarterly, Vol. 32, No. 2, Summer 1973, pp. 140-147 (8 pages). Biography: Col. John A. Fite, Judge of the Fifth Judicial Circuit, Tennessee, was born in 1832, in De Kalb County, a son of Jacob and Matilda (Baird) Fite. The father, of German origin, was born in North Carolina, and with his father came to Davidson County, then Smith County, and finally settled in De Kalb County, where he passed his days. Jacob married there, and was merchant at Alexandria as well as farmer. In 1846 he moved to nearby Lebanon, and died at the age of eighty-three. The mother, born in Hickman County, Tenn., died in 1876. Four of their eleven children were Dorcas R., widow of Leonard Scott; John A.; Dr. J. G. of Lebanon, and Edwin C. John, who went to Wilson County when he was fourteen years old and was educated in the university at Lebanon, and at Irving College. He began studying law at twenty-two, and in 1855 graduated from the law department of Cumberland University, and immediately began practice with his brother, Samuel, at Carthage. His brother was elected circuit judge in 1858, and he formed partnership with Hon. W. D. De Witt, now at Chattanooga. In 1861 John enlisted in Company A, Seventh Tennessee Regiment, Moore's Guards, was elected captain, and fought in Seven Pines; promoted major in 1862; he was in Mechanicsville (where he had two ribs broken), Chancellorsville, Cedar Run (where he received a wound in the leg), Fredericksburg and Gettysburg (where he was captured and taken to Fort McHenry), thence to Fort Delaware, thence to Johnson's Island, where he was retained for nineteen months, and paroled in February, 1865, but remained in North Carolina. After the war he resumed practice with his brother, and in 1871 was appointed clerk and master of chancery court holding it for over six years. In 1878 he and H. M. Hale became partners; in 1882 he was elected to the State Legislature to fill an unexpired term; and he was elected to his present position in 1886. December 29, 1866, he married Mary M., daughter of Leroy H. and Eliza Mitchell, and born in Smith County in 1841. Their two children are Bettie and Mattie.

Gaston Lachaise (American, 1882-1935) graphite on paper drawing of a nude, muscular man standing with fabric draped over one raised arm and the other arm bent as his hand rests on his hip. Signed "G Lachaise" lower left. Label en verso for the Museum of Modern Art, New York, identifying it as part of a circulating exhibit, along with a stamp for the Tennessee Fine Arts Center at Cheekwood, Nashville. Matted and framed under glass in a plain wood frame. Sight – 18 1/2"H x 11"W. Biography (from the Columbus Museum of Art): "Gaston Lachaise was born in Paris, France, the fourth child of an accomplished wood carver and cabinetmaker. At thirteen, he entered the ‚àö√¢cole Bernard Palissy studying drawing, carving and art history. Three years later, he went on to study at the ‚àö√¢cole de Beaux-Arts and his work was exhibited in four annual Paris Salons. Later he worked for the jeweler and glassmaker, Rene Lalique. By 1903, he had met Isabel Dutad Nagle, a married woman ten years his senior, and who would become the muse for his art. Lachaise used the funds he had saved from his work with Lalique to follow Nagle back to Boston in 1906. Marsden Hartley once wrote that Lachaise saw "the entire universe in the form of a woman." In 1912, he opened his own studio in New York, and in 1913 entered the Armory Show. He also apprenticed to the sculptor Paul Manship and worked with him on many garden sculptures as well as the J.P. Morgan Memorial at the Metropolitan Museum and on Rockefeller Center. By 1916, he had become an American citizen, and he finally married Isabel Nagel (now divorced from her first husband) in 1917. A year later, he had his first one-man show at the Stephan Bourgeois Gallery in New York. By 1927, he was producing his most mature work, which was mainly female torsos; but he also did head studies of John Marin, Georgia O'Keeffe and Alfred Stieglitz. Lachaise had always admired Houdon's portraits and he grew to maturity in the time of Rodin in Paris, so this form of sculpture would have been familiar to him. Lachaise made portraits of many of the pacesetters of American intellectual society, including a number of the distinguished group surrounding The Dial magazine. The artist joined Kraushaar Galleries in New York in 1922. In 1925 Lachaise had a solo exhibition at the Art Institute of Chicago. In 1927, he exhibited at Alfred Stieglitz's The Intimate Gallery. In early 1935, Lachaise was honored with a retrospective at the Museum of Modern Art, but many of his pieces were only in plaster, as he could not afford to have them cast in bronze. Many were cast again later for exhibitions at the Whitney, Los Angeles County Museum of Art and the Museum of Modern Art. His pieces are owned by many museums including the Art Institute of Chicago, Detroit Institute of Arts, Metropolitan Museum of Art, Museum of Modern Art, Philadelphia Museum of Art, Hirshhorn Museum and the Columbus Museum. Lachaise died in 1935 of leukemia at the age of 53. He is acclaimed by many as one who helped prepare the next generation for an appreciation of non-objective sculpture."

Prior to his death in 2014, Behrens was represented by Wally Findlay Galleries and collected by such dignitaries as George and Barbara Bush. (Source: Askart).

181 Lot 181: Dora Maar O/C, Expressionist Landscape Dora Maar O/C, Expressionist Landscape Lot 181: Dora Maar O/C, Expressionist Landscape

Dora Maar (France, 1907-1997) expressionist oil on canvas landscape painting depicting a willow tree on a hill beneath an overcast sky. Signed "Dora Maar" lower left. Old gallery label en verso for Ernest Brown and Phillips, Ltd. London. Housed in a distressed painted and parcel gilt wood frame. Sight: 19" H x 23 1/2" W. Framed: 24 3/4" H x 29 3/8" W. Biography: French photographer and Surrealist artist Dora Maar's career and work were overshadowed during her lifetime by her affair with Pablo Picasso, but in later years they began to be appreciated on their own merits. She was born Henrietta Theodora Markovitch (Markovic)and spent her childhood in Buenos Aires, where her father worked as an architect. She returned to Paris in 1926 and studied art at the Union Centrale des Arts Decoratifs, the Ecole de Photographie, the Academie Julian, and the atelier of Andre Lhote. In the early 1930s she began to pursue a career in photography and adopted the professional name Dora Maar. She served as a still photographer on the set for Jean Renoir's film Le Crime de Monsieur Lange (1936). By 1935 Maar was associated with the Surrealist circle and had strong ties to Andre Breton, Paul Eluard, and Georges Bataille. She photographed many of the Surrealists and exhibited with them. Her work began to take on more of the absurdist and dreamlike qualities characteristic of Surrealism. Portrait of Ubu (1936; also called Pere Ubu), a monstrous close-up image by Maar of what may be an armadillo fetus (she would never confirm), became an icon of the movement. Maar and Picasso began a love affair in 1936. Picasso painted Maar numerous times (e.g., Dora Maar Seated [1937]; Weeping Woman [1937]; Weeping Woman in a Red Hat [1937]; Woman Seated in a Garden [1938]; Dora Maar in an Armchair [1939]). They separated completely in 1946, and although Maar continued to create art, she did not exhibit for nearly 25 years. She struggled with mental health and became a recluse. Over the years, as her main source of income, she sold what she owned that had been made by Picasso. Her work was reintroduced in 1990 with "Dora Maar: Oeuvres Anciennes," an exhibition of her photographs and paintings at Marcel Fleiss's Galerie 1900-2000 in Paris. A major exhibition followed in 1995 in Valencia, Spain. After her death in 1997, the contents of her homes in Paris and in Menerbes (France), which among other things included her own works and those by Picasso, were auctioned off. Since Maar's death, her work has been included in numerous group exhibitions, and it has been the subject of solo exhibitions and new scholarship. In 2006 her home (the Dora Maar House) in Menerbes opened as a retreat for writers, scholars, and artists in a program administered by the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston.

Signed en verso in marker: "Mary T. Smith". 34"H x 24"W. Circa 1970s. Provenance: Private Nashville collection; acquired mid 1980s. Biography: Mary Tillman was born into a farming family in Copiah County in Southern Mississippi, the third of thirteen children. Although highly intelligent, she suffered from an early age from a hearing impairment, which made oral communication difficult, and she found an outlet in art. After working as a domestic servant and enduring two unsuccessful marriages, she began filling her Hazelhurst, Mississippi yard with art in the 1970s, using found materials such as tin and plywood. Many of Smith's paintings exhibited an abstracted religious iconography inspired by her deep faith. She also produced many portraits of family and friends. After a stroke in 1985, she is said to have slowed down to "only" producing two pieces of work a day, and she is believed to have painted very few if any pieces between 1991 and her death in 1995, when she died at the age of 91.

Framed: 13 3/8" H x 15 3/8" W. Artist Biography (Courtesy Knoxville Museum of Art): Krutch is regarded as one of East Tennessee's first painters to specialize in scenes of the Smoky Mountains. Krutch earned the nickname "Corot of the South" for his soft, atmospheric watercolor and oil paintings of the mountain range that served as his sole focus. Totally untrained as an artist, he often applied thick layers of oil paint with brushes as well as his fingers. Krutch's goal was to capture the changing "moods" of the mountains. Note: Before its founding, the town Newland, NC and the surrounding area, now Avery County, was known as "Old Fields of Toe". It was an early muster ground in the campaign against Indians and before the Battle of Kings Mountain. On November 9, 1783, the land was granted to Colonel Waightstill Avery. Toe refers to the name of the river that runs through the area. Avery County borders North East Tennessee.

He attended the Blair Academy and the Grand Central School of Art. In 1932, Cappy, along with Jackson Pollock, Willem de Kooning, Beaufort Delaney and others, founded the Washington Square Outdoor Art Show. Amundsen later traveled via yawl along the eastern seaboard working as a commercial fisherman to support himself for. During this time, he developed skill as a painter and.

Hughes, Sven Sagg, and many others. The multiple signatures were probably a marketing ploy to enable Amundsen to place different prices on his works, sometimes executed in differing styles, when displaying them in his usual outdoor/street art shows such as the Washing Square Art Show.

Both are unframed and unsigned. 13 3/4" H x 10 1/4" W and 11 3/4" H x 16" W. Both early 20th century. Note: Although both paintings are unsigned, included are two authentication letters by John Reeves and David Saltzman, attesting that these paintings, and the others in this series (sold in our past two auctions), were painted by Gilbert Gaul. A hand written note included with the series of paintings state that the paintings were done "on the battlefields of France during the World War". Copies of the authenticity letters are available to the winning bidder of this lot. 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).

Published Civil War archive of seven (7) letters from Confederate States of America (CSA) Colonel John Amenas Fite (1832-1925), 7th Tennessee Infantry, Company B, captured at the Battle of Gettysburg on July 3, 1863, while he was a prisoner of war at Johnson's Island, Ohio, dated May 20, 1864, to January 29, 1865. The autographed letters signed (ALS) are all one page and written to various family members, including his brother Judge Samuel McClary Fite (1816-1875). 1st item: ALS from John A. Fite, Johnson's Island, OH, to his sister Kate, dated September 8, 1864. He writes of significant changes that have occurred in the prison, stating "…formerly we could write each day now we write our letter on only Monday and Thursday…we have not been restricted in the number we receive. Our living is also materially changed. We are not prohibbited[sic] from receiving provisions from [anyone] living within the U.S. Military lines and cannot purchase from sutler's store. In short we are [dependent] upon Government rations…". 2nd-3rd items: Two (2) ALS, one-page handwritten letter from John A. Fite, Johnson's Island, OH, to his brother Samuel McClary Fite, dated October 16 and December 21, 1864. His October 16 letter addresses his disappointment in the lack of letters from family members and "…[dispairs] of getting out [of prison] during the war…". He requests for books and socks to be sent to him and provides specific instructions on how they should be packaged. He also remarks upon how much weight he has lost since first coming to Johnson's Island. John's December 21 letter again references his desire for receiving books stating that any are fine to send, as long as they "…do not in any way refer to the military or Naval service [etc.]…". He also mentions that "…I am now convinced I am here for good, only knows how long, perhaps till Gabriel shall blow may be only for life…". 3rd-7th items: Four (4) ALS from John A. Fite, Johnson's Island, OH, including two (2) to his sister(s), dated May 20, and August 27, 1864, and two (2) to his brother(s), dated October 27, 1864, and January 29, 1865. The letters primarily address correspondence that he has received from family members, or lack thereof, and his health. His letter dated May 20 does state that "…Capt Allen…[has] gone to Richmond on exchange…". Note: This archival material has been documented by the Department of State of Tennessee Library and Archives. (see: https://sos-tn-gov-files.tnsosfiles.com/forms/FITE-JAMES_FAMILY_PAPERS_1811st-1879.pdf). Note: His letters were also published in "Colonel John A. Fite's Letters From Prison" by Raymond D. White, Tennessee Historical Quarterly, Vol. 32, No. 2, Summer 1973, pp. 140-147 (8 pages). Biography: Col. John A. Fite, Judge of the Fifth Judicial Circuit, Tennessee, was born in 1832, in De Kalb County, a son of Jacob and Matilda (Baird) Fite. The father, of German origin, was born in North Carolina, and with his father came to Davidson County, then Smith County, and finally settled in De Kalb County, where he passed his days. Jacob married there and was a merchant at Alexandria as well as a farmer. In 1846 he moved to near Lebanon and died at the age of eighty-three. The mother, born in Hickman County, Tenn., died in 1876. Four of their eleven children were Dorcas R., widow of Leonard Scott; John A.; Dr. J. G. of Lebanon, and Edwin C. John went to Wilson County when he was fourteen years old and was educated in the university at Lebanon, and at Irving College. He began studying law at twenty-two, and in 1855 graduated from the law department of Cumberland University, and immediately began practice with his brother, Samuel, at Carthage. His brother was elected circuit judge in 1858, and he formed a partnership with Hon. W. D. De Witt, now at Chattanooga. In 1861 John enlisted in Company A, Seventh Tennessee Regiment, Moore's Guards, and was elected captain and fought in Seven Pines; promoted major in 1862; he was in Mechanicsville (where he had two ribs broken), Chancellorsville, Cedar Run (where he received a wound in the leg), Fredericksburg and Gettysburg (where he was captured and taken to Fort McHenry), thence to Fort Delaware, thence to Johnson's Island, where he was retained for nineteen months, and paroled in February 1865, but remained in North Carolina. After the war, he resumed practice with his brother, and in 1871 was appointed clerk and master of chancery court holding it for over six years. In 1878 he and H. M. Hale became partners, and in 1882 he was elected to the State Legislature to fill an unexpired term and elected to his present position in 1886. December 29, 1866, he married Mary M., daughter of Leroy H. and Eliza Mitchell, and was born in Smith County in 1841. Their two children are Bettie and Mattie. He was a Master Mason and he and Mrs. Fite were members of the Methodist Episcopal Church South. For years he was one of the leading lawyers of Smith County bar.

Werner Wildner (Nashville, Tennessee, 1925-2004) surrealist oil on panel still life painting titled "October Leaf" depicting an upright leaf behind a nest filled with eggs and surrounded by feathers on a wooden table against a black background. Signed with a monogram "W." lower right. Handwritten label with title and additional information, en verso. Housed in a black painted wooden frame with dark gilt trim and a giltwood fillet. Sight: 9 1/2" H x 7 1/2" W. Framed: 16" H x 14 1/4" W. Biography: Wildner was born in Germany but moved to Detroit with his family as a child and then, as a teenager, to Nashville. He served in the Army in 1944 and went on to study art briefly at the Meinzinger Art School in Detroit. He returned to Nashville to practice commercial art, but by the mid-1950s had decided to pursue his own art career. Whimsical animals and fantastical, often grotesque creatures were a recurring theme of his work. Wildner met with critical and commercial success after a 1962 exhibit of his art at the Nashville site now known as Cheekwood.
