230 Lot 230: 1830 Tennessee Portrait Miniature of Kinheche, Chickasaw Indian 1830 Tennessee Portrait Miniature of Kinheche, Chickasaw Indian Lot 230: 1830 Tennessee Portrait Miniature of Kinheche, Chickasaw Indian

Caroline Dudley (Tennessee, 1802-1832) important watercolor miniature portrait painting, depicting Chickasaw Native American dignitary Kinheche in bright garb and headdress holding a bow and arrow. Inscriptions identifying subject as “Kinhichi”, en verso of interior paper liner, and as “Kinhishee” on the exterior of the back of the frame. Housed in a wooden frame with gilt metal sight edge and oak leaf hanger. Sight: 2 3/4″ H x 2 1/4″ W. Framed: 6″ H x 5″ W. Circa 1830. Note: this portrait was painted in Franklin, Tennessee in August of 1830 during the landmark treaty summit between President Andrew Jackson and the Chickasaw Nation, conducted at the city’s Masonic Hall. Caroline Dudley was the daughter of a prominent Middle Tennessee settler and leader, Guilford Dudley; both were among the spectators invited to witness the treaty event. According to family history, Miss Dudley was so impressed by the appearance of Kinheche or Kin-hee-shee (who according to some accounts may have been a son of the chief), that she was inspired to paint his likeness. Miss Dudley may have been a teacher of art or other similar subjects at the Young Ladies Boarding School run by her mother, Anna Bland Eaton Dudley on the West Harpeth River in Williamson County from 1809-1840 or at Mrs. Long’s School on West Main Street in Franklin, which was run by her sister, Judith from 1826-28 and 1834-37. After Caroline Dudley’s death just two years later at the age of 30, the painting was inherited by her sister Frances and descended in the family to its last private owner, Mary Bright Wilson of Lincoln County, Tennessee. Historical background: “After his Indian Removal Act was passed in May of 1830, President Andrew Jackson invited the Chickasaw Nation to a treaty council to be held the following August in Franklin, Tennessee. During their stay, the Chickasaw delegation met Jackson in the Franklin Masonic Hall, a National Historic Landmark which still stands at 115 2nd Ave South in Franklin. This would be the first treaty negotiation under the Removal Act and a successful outcome was important to the President, who was a charismatic and influential figure among the Chickasaw. Some of the older minkos (chiefs or headmen) had served under Jackson’s command at the Battle of New Orleans and the Creek War, during the War of 1812. They called him “Sharpe Knife”. Jackson appointed John Coffee and John Eaton as treaty commissioners. Coffee was a long time friend who had also served with Jackson in 1812. Eaton, Jackson’s Secretary of War, lived in Franklin. The Chickasaw delegation was led by Levi Colbert – Itawambe Miko (Bench Chief), and included George Colbert, James Colbert, John McLish, Captain William McGilvery, Captain James Brown, Isaac Alberson, Topulka, Ishtayatubbe, Ahtokowa, Hushtatabe, Innewakche, Oaklanayaubbe, Ohekaubbe, Immolasubbe, Immohoaltatubbe, Ishtekieyokatubbe, Ishtehiacha, Inhiyouchetubbe, and Kinheche…” President Jackson met and welcomed the Chickasaw delegation when they arrived in Franklin on August 20, 1830. During the next several days, support for Chickasaw education, Removal expenses, and other related details were worked out. On August 31 the treaty was signed. The Chickasaw agreed to exchange their remaining land in Mississippi and Alabama for land “West of the territory of Arkansaw”, with a stipulation that they could examine the land beforehand. If they didn’t find suitable land, the treaty would be null and void. A supplemental treaty concerning other details was signed the next day, September 1, and “thereupon, the council broke up.” The Chickasaws sent several delegations west of the Mississippi to look for land over the next two years, but nothing suitable was found. In the meantime, the signing of the 1830 Franklin treaty caused a land rush of white squatters anxious to stake their claims before the Chickasaws had even left. By 1832 the Chickasaw Nation was being overrun, even though the Franklin treaty was supposed to prohibit such intrusions. Article 3 extended the protection of the United States to the Chickasaws, but the federal government did nothing to stop the invading squatters – apparently Jackson had let his blade grow dull, at least when it came to protecting Chickasaw land. Since the Chickasaws found no suitable land in the west, the Franklin treaty was considered null and void and was never ratified by Congress. In October, 1832, President Jackson sent John Coffee to the Chickasaw Nation to negotiate a new treaty. Coffee met 65 Chickasaw leaders at the Chickasaw council house on Pontotoc Creek, near present day Tupelo, Mississippi. On October 20, the Chickasaw leaders signed the Treaty of Pontotoc Creek with the United States, agreeing to sell their remaining homeland in Mississippi and Alabama. The Chickasaws became dissatisfied with the Treaty of Pontotoc Creek, believing John Coffee had misrepresented the terms during the negotiations. In 1834 they sent a delegation to Washington, D.C., to amend the treaty. Levi Colbert, then 75 years old, began the journey but became ill and died. Before his death he dictated instructions for the delegation, which included his brother George, who had also been present at the Franklin treaty council. George Colbert and the rest of the delegation then traveled on to Washington and negotiated the desired amendments. In 1837, under the provisions of the Treaty of Doaksville, a treaty between the Chickasaw and Choctaw Nations, the Chickasaw bought a section of Choctaw land in Indian Territory. The people whose allegiance and friendship arguably prevented the destruction of fledgling Nashville and the other Cumberland settlements, and helped shape the map of the southeast to the benefit of the United States, finally left the soil of their birth and removed to the west.” Source: The Native American History Association (http://www.nativehistoryassociation.org/franklin_treaty.php) Note: This portrait miniature was the subject of a 1932 article in the Franklin, TN Review Appeal by Park Marshall, cousin of Mary Bright Wilson. A copy is available on request and we thank Williamson County Historian Rick Warwick for providing it. We also wish to thank Janet Hasson of the Tennessee Sampler Survey for providing information on the Young Ladies Schools operated by Caroline Dudley’s mother and sister.

He likes to keep his figures somewhat anonymous so that the viewer can imagine himself in the picture." (Adapted from Art of the West, September 2002).

Benjamin Franklin Reinhart (American, 1829-1885) large oil on canvas portrait of Martha "Mattie" Ready Morgan of Tennessee, wife of Confederate General John Hunt Morgan. The subject is depicted seated on a red chair with upswept dark hair and attired in a pale grey formal gown with flowers to the bodice and a matching ornate satin robe or coat behind her. She wears a glove on her right hand and holds a white lace fan with her left hand. In the background is a window with red silk drapery. Signed and dated lower right "B. F. Reinhart Pinxit 1868". Housed in a gilt carved pebbled cove style frame with applied foliate ornaments to the corners, egg and dart decoration to the outer edge and bead course decoration to the inner edge. Sight: 49 1/2" H x 39 1/4" W. Framed: 62" H x 50" W. Note: the wedding of Mattie Ready Morgan (1840-1887), daughter of Tennessee Congressman Charles Ready, to then-Captain John Hunt Morgan of Kentucky has been described as the social event of the Confederacy. It took place at her father's stately home in Murfreesboro on Dec. 14, 1862. Their marriage lasted only 630 days (ending when Morgan was captured and killed), but has been romanticized as one of the great love stories of the Civil War. American historical painter and portraitist Benjamin Reinhart spent most of the Civil War in London, but returned to Kentucky in the late 1860s, where this painting is believed to have been created. He also painted portraits of Gen. Robert E. Lee and Gen. P.T. Beauregard. The date on this painting is 4 years after Morgan's death and 5 years before Mattie's second marriage to Judge William Henry Williamson of Lebanon, TN; it may have been intended to depict Mattie Morgan in her wedding attire. Although John Hunt and Mattie Morgan's daughters both died young, leaving no direct descendants, the painting has descended in Mattie Morgan's family on the Bone side, along with a tea set said to have belonged to her (also being sold in this auction). This lot also includes two (2) first edition hardcover books related to Martha Ready Morgan and General John Hunt Morgan, including: Author signed, MORGAN AND HIS RAIDERS: A BIOGRAPHY OF THE CONFEDERATE GENERAL, First Edition, by Cecil Fletcher Holland, published by The Macmillian Company, New York, 1942; and THE BRIDE AND THE BANDIT: THE STORY OF MATTIE READY OF MURFREESBORO, TENNESSEE, WARTIME BRIDE OF GENERAL JOHN HUNT MORGAN, First Edition, printed by Evansville Bindery for private publication, Evansville, 1998.

Ralph Albert Blakelock (New York/California, 1847-1919) oil on canvas landscape painting depicting a heavily forested area under a hazy sky; a river runs through the center of the work and into the foreground where a figure stands fishing, rendered in a delicate impasto. Signed "Blakelock" lower right. Housed in a giltwood frame with bead course decoration. Sight: 11 1/2" H x 9 1/2" W. Framed: 17" H x 15" W. Biography (courtesy Askart and Michael Zellman, 300 Years of American Art): Ralph Albert Blakelock studied briefly at Cooper Union, and at the Free Academy of the City of New York. In 1867, he first exhibited at the National Academy of Design. Primarily self taught, he declined his wealthy father's offer to pay for more extensive art schooling, and in 1869, embarked on a horseback tour of the West that lasted several years. He lived with Plains Indians, painting pictures of their villages, and traveled and painted through the Rockies and the Sierra Nevadas and in San Francisco and Mexico. His western paintings were in the Hudson River style, although they were rough and more painterly. Returning to New York, he developed what became his signature expression: quiet, moody, nocturnal scenes accented with bright colors depicting light, and trees silhouetted against the sky. He had a labor-intensive technique, which was building up of multiple layers of thick paint, scraping some away, and "adding more to build a complex tonality". (Zellman 420). In 1899, Blakelock had a mental breakdown. He spent the final two decades of his life in a mental institution in New York. It was only in the final few years before his death that collectors began paying substantial sums of money for his work.

He was also a member of the NC Provincial Congress and the NC House of Commons, and the NC Council of State under Gov. Richard Caswell (ref. William S. Powell, The Dictionary of North Carolina Biography, p. 131). Gen. Eaton had considerable wealth and was listed in the 1790 census as one of the largest slaveholders in the state; a note found with the portrait states that he equipped a regiment at his own expense.

CASES RULED AND ADJUDGED IN THE SUPREME COURTS OF LAW AND EQUITY AND FEDERAL COURT FOR THE STATE OF TENNESSEE BY AND OF THE JUDGES OF THAT STATE, BOOK THE THIRD. This early hand written legal book contains entries describing cases and opinions brought before the forerunner of the TN State Supreme Court, from May 1805 to Nov. 1808. It opens with a case in the Mero District (later known as Nashville) of "Jackson and Evens," over whether a contract made in another state should be subject to the statute of limitations of that state or of Tennessee. The book continues to detail cases argued in the Mero, Washington and Hamilton Districts involving slave rights, property and contract disputes, horse auctions, and even the authorization of George Roulstone to publish law journals. There is extensive writing recording the opinions of judges John Overton, Hugh Lawson White, and David Campbell, who served during this time period. (Overton, in particular, seems to have had much to say on many of the cases, and the book may have been written in his hand). 277 pp. 11 1/2"H x 7 1/4"W. Note: Tennessee's early legal system relied on a series of Districts, added as the then-territory became more populated. The 1796 Constitution of Tennessee formally instituted the frontier practice of having 2 types of courts: an "inferior" Court of Common Pleas and Quarter Sessions (which heard law cases involving modest sums of money or property and minor punishments) and the Superior Court of Law and Equity, considered the "superior" court. The Superior Courts of Law and Equity had sole jurisdiction over cases punishable by loss of life or limb and cases of greater dollar value. They also served as courts of appeal, for those dissatisfied a Court of Pleas decision. The three traveling Superior Court judges heard cases in Jonesboro (Washington District), Knoxville (Hamilton District), Carthage (Winchester District), Clarksville (Robertson District), and Nashville (Mero District). Many of Tennessee's leading pioneers served as Superior Court judges, including Andrew Jackson (who stepped down in 1804), John Overton (who took Jackson's place), John McNairy, Archibald Roane, and Willie Blount.

PROVENANCE: Descended in the family of Judge John Overton through his daughter, Elizabeth Overton Lea of Nashville to present consignor.

Framed: 27" H x 37" W. Note: This painting is pictured on page 128 (figure 18) of the book "Robert Loftin Newman" by Marchal E. Landgren, published for The National Collection of Fine Arts by the Smithsonian Institution Press, City of Washington, 1974. At the time, the book listed the painting's whereabouts as unknown, with the known previous provenance as follows: "Purchased by Miss Palmie at Mrs. Sanborn's studio sale, 1909; E.C. Babcock, New York, 1926: Hon. John G. Winant, Concord, NH, 1928". It was recently discovered in a Northeastern estate sale. Artist Biography: Robert Newman was born in Richmond, Virginia, and grew up in Clarksville, Tennessee. He is sometimes associated with Albert Pinkham Ryder, an artist with whom he shared a similar style and artistic technique. For Newman (who never knew his father) mothers and children were frequent subject matter, along with Old and New Testament themes; in fact another painting with this same title and subject is in the collection of the Smithsonian Institution (accession no. 1975.57, gift of Mr. and Mrs. Donald Webster). Newman studied briefly with Thomas Couture in Paris in 1850, and on a second trip to Paris in 1854, William Morris Hunt introduced him to J. F. Millet and to the Barbizon painters. Newman served with the Confederate forces during the Civil War before moving to New York. He returned to Tennessee in 1872 and tried to establish an academy of fine arts in Nashville, but by 1873 he was back in New York, where he resided the rest of his life. He rarely exhibited his work. (Source: Matthew Baigell, "Dictionary of American Artists"; Peter Falk, "Who Was Who in American Art"; The Smithsonian American Art Museum).

CONDITION: Painting has been lined. Canvas with overall craquelure due to the artist's technique, which caused the top layer of heavy paint and resin to dry more quickly than the primary layer. Some of the resulting wide traction cracks have been lightly in-painted in the right-center of the work, and there is a small area of inpainting in lower-left corner, approximately 1". See UV light photos for reference. Frame with very minor scattered abrasions, slight losses. [See more photos →]

At the young age of 9, Nazis forced his family to live in the Mathausen concentration camp until the end of the war. Upon his return home, he developed an interest in art. He later went to study at the Bezalel Art Academy after his family immigrated to Jerusalem. However, due to his family's difficult financial state, he left school after only one year. He was allowed to continue his scholarship until his mobilization to the Israeli Army. Tarkay enrolled at the Anvi Institute of Art in Tel Aviv, graduating in 1956. His art has been exhibited both in Israel and abroad. This painting was purchased circa 1990 through designer Shirley Horowitz of Davishire Interiors, which carried some of Tarkay's original works.

He and his family emigrated to the U.S. in 1953. He studied at the Art Students League and began his career as a graphic artist. He worked in a photo collage style in the 1960s which later developed what he called a Cosmic 60s style, with distinctive line work and bold color combinations. His visual impact on the 1960s has been compared to the influence of The Beatles on music. Max created several special commissions for the U.S. Government including the U.S. Border murals, postage stamps, and a Bicentennial special installation and art book. In 1982 he painted six Statues of Liberty on the White House Lawn and later helped actualize the statue's restoration. His one man retrospective show at the Hermitage Museum in St. Petersburg in 1991 drew the largest turnout for any artist in Russian history. He has been designated official artist for the Grammys, the Woodstock Music Festival, and five Superbowls." (source: AskArt).

Confederate Civil War archive of twenty-two (22) items, pertaining to the Fulton brothers of Fayetteville, Tennessee, specifically Colonel John S. Fulton, 44th Tennessee Infantry Regiment, Johnson's Division; Colonel Alfred S. Fulton, 8th Regiment, Tennessee Infantry; Robert Fulton, 41st Regiment, Tennessee Infantry, Company C; and James Fulton, Pay Director in the United States Navy. The documents include autographed signed letters (ALS) from General William Brimage Bate (1826-1905), CSA Congressman James McCallum (1806-1889), and others. Subjects include the death of Lieutenant-General Leonidas Polk (1806-1864), the Battle of Fort Henry, the Battle of Fort Donelson, the capture of Nashville, the Overland Campaign, the Richmond-Petersburg Campaign, the Atlanta campaign, and more. 1st item: ALS. Double-sided one-page handwritten letter from General William Brimage Bate, front lines of the Atlanta Campaign, to Colonel John S. Fulton, undated, written circa June 14, 1864 in regards to the death of Lieutenant-General Leonidas Polk. The brief letter states that "Lt Gen'l Polk was killed yesterday on my front line–", en verso, while the main body of the letter urges Fulton to "…have it filed in…[the] War's Office at once–& get some friend to take it to the President–I have an interview with him…" he also writes that "…Gen'l Johnson is the man…". He explains that the letter has been delayed due to his frequent movements along the front lines of the Atlanta Campaign. 2nd item: ALS. Three page bifolium handwritten letter from General Bate, from his headquarters to Colonel John S. Fulton, dated April 28, 1864. He begins his letter by stating that he has not heard from Fulton for some time, writing "…I do not know now whether you are in Va. or near Bristol East Tenn. We did hear that your Brigade was with Longstreet…". Bate also mentions that if Fulton was to receive a promotion that he would like to be kept informed and that he "…regrets very much that [Fulton] is not in [Bate's] command…". Bate also reflects upon the state of the Confederate army and the importance of taking back Tennessee from the Union army, writing, "…it is the 'promised land' now in sack cloth and ashes 'mourning for the loss of her children'…". He also mentions his interest in the career of Captain M.W. Cluskey of Preston Smith Brigade, who fought in the Battle of Shiloh, April 6-7, 1862; that his division has now absorbed the Kentucky Brigade and Finley's (Florida) Brigade; and that a soldier by the name of McWinchester, who was the author to the reply of Ed Erwin's Amnesty letter, is still in prison. 3rd item: ALS. Double-sided bifolium handwritten letter from John R. Bright, Fayetteville, TN, writing to his cousin Colonel Alfred S. Fulton, dated February 21, 1862. The letter describes the Battle of Fort Henry, fought February 6, 1862; the Battle of Fort Donelson, fought from February 11-16, 1862; and the capture of Nashville on February 25, 1862. Bright writes, "…the excitement here has been so great since the fight at Fort Donelson…you cannot realize the intense agony which pervades our community–Donelson has fallen–Nashville is doubtless in the hands of the enemy–Gen[eral John Buchanan] Floyd who was at Nashville after the surrender of has burnt the Rail Road & Wire bridges acro[s]s the Cumberland…". He mentions the Union gunboats, stating, "…the gunboats were at a considerable distance and done no damage…" while later stating, "…the Gun Boats came up to within 200 yds of the Fort and shelled the Fort with 50 rounds of cannister…". Bright also gives estimations of the number of casualties and the number of soldiers involved in the fighting, writing, "…the loss on our side was comparatively small–the best estimate of the enemy's loss in killed is from 4000 to 6000 whilst our loss in killed and wounded does not exceed 600–it seems the enemy was receiving reinforcements, and on Saturday night their reinforcements swelled their army up to about 80,000 whilst our army at no time exceeded 16,000…". Returning to his description of the Battle and ultimate surrender of Fort Donelson, Bright writes "…Saturday night the enemy's whole force moved up and surrounded the Fort–about 1 o'clock Sunday morning the fact became known that the Fort must surrender, and our Generals…[Gideon Johnson] Pillow & Floyd left on a Steamboat…[Simon Bolivar] Buckner was left in command and surrendered with about 8,000 men…". After describing the events of the surrender in additional detail, Bright then relays General Albert Sidney Johnston's part in the events, writing "…Johnson[sic] was at Nashville all the time of the fight but it seems that Pillow telegraphed him that they did not need re-enforcements–Johnson's[sic] army had left Bowlingreen[sic]…and was in the neighborhood of Nashville Saturday when the news reached Nashville on Sunday that Fort Donelson had fallen…Johnson[sic] marched his army through Nashville on Sunday evening falling back to Murfreesboro…". Bright then also describes the fear that overcame the citizens of Nashville, stating that the pandemonium was "…equal if not greater than the retreat from Manassas…". Bright ponders if the Generals or the citizens of Nashville are more to blame for the city's fall, stating that while Johnston did not have to troops to defend the city and that there were many Union sympathizers in Nashville, he finds that "…there are too many [men]…so panic-stricken that they have not the nerve to stand up or never were true Southern men…". He concludes his letter by stating that McDonald's Regiment was not in the fight, that Albert's brother Colonel John Fulton returned from a few day's visit home, and that "these are gloomy times for us…the army may fall back to Lookout Mountain, if so Tenne[s]see is overrun…". 4th item: ALS. Double-sided bifolium handwritten letter from one of the Fulton brothers, Drewrys Bluff, VA, writing to his brother, dated May 29, 1864. He writes of the Overland Campaign, a series of battles fought in Virginia during May and June 1864, stating, "…Lee and Grant are now confronting each other. They may be fighting at anytime Lee has already killed wounded and captured between 50 & 7500 men–The Yankees…about 35 or 45,000…". He also mentions Maj. Gen. Benjamin Butler's army, writing, "…Butler…has made a signal failure–He came up the Penisula & sought to take Richmond on the south side–but they have been repulsed. He now has his army between the James and Appomattox rivers–". Unsigned. 5th item: Confederate States Secretary of War James Seddon signed military commission document conferring on John S. Fulton, the position of Colonel in the 44th Tennessee Infantry Regiment, dated May 5, 1862. Includes envelope addressed to Fulton with one blue 10 cent Jefferson Davis stamp. 6th item: ALS. Three page bifolium handwritten letter, from Colonel John S. Fulton, Bean Station, Tennessee, to Colonel Alfred S. Fulton, Bibb City, AL, dated December 17, 1986. He mentions the movements of his division near Knoxville, TN, writing "…We attempted to take Fort Loudon at the edge of Knoxville in the morning of the 29th–but failed–it is one of the strongest forts I ever saw–I think Gen Longstreet acted on this rashly in attacking the fort–We lost some 150 men killed & saw some several hundred wounded-it was a very fatal little fight…". 7th item: ALS. Double-sided one page handwritten letter from James R. Bright, Quartermaster's Office, Granbury's Brigade, to his cousin Mrs. E. L. Rogers, dated May 31, 1864. He begins by referencing a letter that he received, quoting, "…'Some think that [Lt. Colonel John L. McEwen, Jr.] will die, Col Fulton will soon be able to be with the command'…". He also mentions the state of the Army and Nathan Bedford Forrest's movements, writing, "…I am pleased to see that in every encounter our men have nobly sustained our cause and inflicted heavy injury upon the enemy–we are very anxious to hear from Forrest who is believed to be in the enemy's [territory]–if he succeeds in destrying the enemy's stores &c. it will make our success certain…". 8th item: ALS. One page bifolium handwritten letter from E.D. Baker, Captain and A.Q.M., Pulaski, TN, to an unidentified recipient, possibly one of the Fulton Brothers, dated January 17, 1864. The letter mentions that two rooms are now available for occupation and includes an ink inscription by Union General Richard W. Johnson with his signature, dated January 7, 1865, with later pencil inscriptions, en verso. 9th item: ALS. Two and one half-page bifolium handwritten letter from Congressman James McCallum, Richmond, VA, to Colonel John S. Fulton, dated June 6, 1864. The letter acknowledges Fulton's previous letter in which Fulton recommended a Colonel Keeble, possibly Colonel Richard H. Keeble, 23rd Tennessee Infantry Regiment, for an undisclosed appointment. McCallum mentions that Colonel Abram Fulkerson, 63rd Tennessee Infantry Regiment, is also up for consideration. 10th-11th items: Two (2) ALS. Double-sided bifolium and double-sided one-page handwritten letters, including one (1) from Colonel John S. Fulton, Headquarters of Johnson's Brigade near Petersberg, VA, to Captain R. E. Foote, dated June 28, 1864, and one (1) from the Head Quarters of the 44th and 25th Tennessee Infantry Regiments, possibly to a Captain Wein(?), dated June 21, 1864. The letters serve as reports regarding the movements of Johnson's Brigade from June 15, and 17-18, 1864, during the Richmond-Petersburg campaign, a series of battles around Petersburg, Virginia, fought from June 9, 1864, to March 25, 1865. 12th item: ALS. One page handwritten letter from Colonel John S. Fulton, Drewry's Bluff, VA, to the Editors of the "Atlanta Register", dated May 20, 1864, prior to the closure of the newspaper office in response to General Sherman's impending Atlanta Campaign. Fulton writes in regards to an article written by a reporter named Giles in the "Atlanta Register", in which the performance of Johnson's Brigade during that Battle of Chickamauga was mentioned. 13th item: ALS. Double-sided bifolium letter from Robert Fulton, 41st Regiment, Tennessee Infantry, Company C, Enterprise, MS, writing to his brother Colonel John S. Fulton, dated August 27, 1863.

He also references several officers, including Captain Tierney, Colonel Ferguson, Adjutant Anthony, and others. 14th-15th items: Two (2) ALS.

Bright, Quartermaster's Office, Smith's Brigade, Near Atlanta, GA, to his cousin Mrs. E. L. Rogers, dated July 20, 1864.

In 1922 she sailed for China to begin a course in nursing at the Peking Union Medical College; she graduated with an RN equivalency in 1925. In 1926 Perkins applied to the Board of Foreign Missions (PCUSA). She was assigned to the Douw Hospital in Peiping. She served that hospital for nearly twenty years, eventually becoming Superintendent of Nurses. She was imprisoned by the invading Japanese for six months in 1942-43. Once freed, she resumed her hospital work. In 1951 she was arrested and imprisoned by the Chinese communists. She was freed in 1955 and retired from missionary service two years later. After Sara died, Gertrude lived with Mary Rawlings (1897-1996), aunt to the consignor (https://www.history.pcusa.org/collections/research-tools/guides-archival-collections/rg-352 and Perkins autobiography, Red China Prisoner).

Housed in a giltwood frame. Sight: 19 3/4" H x 15 3/4" W. Framed: 24 1/2" H x 20 1/2" W. Biography: "Eggemeyer was born in New Castle, Indiana to an artistic family. Her father, W.S. Kaufman, was a well-known architect in Indiana. In Richmond, he designed the Westcott Hotel, the 1908 YMCA building and the State Hospital. It was her father who first gave her art instruction; her first teacher was Dean of the Richmond Group, John E. Bundy. Eggemeyer also studied from the famed Hoosier Group painter, John Ottis Adams. Eggemeyer was a founding member of the Richmond Palette Club and a jury member of the Art Association of Richmond's annual exhibition. Her most active time was during the 1920's, in which she had several one-woman shows in Toledo, Cincinnati, Indianapolis, and New York. She actively painted in and around her home, Twin Oaks, located on New Paris Pike, northeast of Richmond. Madison, Indiana, and Michigan were also favorite painting grounds for her. It was in 1924 that Eggemeyer, John Bundy and George Baker were invited to exhibit their work at the Brooklyn Museum of Art. In 1926, she was selected as one of the seven vice presidents of the Hoosier Salon Patron's Association. She won two merit awards at the Hoosier Salon in 1925 and 1930. In 1925, she was the winner of the DePauw University Alumni Association of Chicago's award for best floral. She received three awards from the Hoosier Salon, Marshall Fields Gallery, Chicago including the Beaumont Parks prize in 1924, the Crilly prize in 1927 and the Salon Patrons Association prize in 1928. In 1931, her last exhibition at the Palette Club, Richmond, she exhibited 51 works. This would be the last time Eggemeyer would exhibit her work. Her husband, Elmer took his own life in 1931, leaving her to manage her affairs alone and perhaps ending her career as an artist. She moved in with her sister, Mrs. Parsons in Asheville, North Carolina, where she died in 1959." (adapted from the Richmond Art Museum, Richmond, Indiana).

Rutherford B. Hayes presidential china soup plate from the 1880 edition of the service originally designed for the White House by Theodore Davis, manufactured by Haviland & Company, France. The interior of the soup plate depicts an okra plant with butterfly and hen while the exterior is decorated with an American eagle with gilt swags below a scalloped gilt rim.

Note: In 1879, a state dinner service for President and Mrs. Rutherford B. Hayes was commissioned from Haviland & Co. During a meeting with Mrs. Hayes in the White House conservatory, Theodore R. Davis, an artist for Harper's Weekly, advocated a service designed with American flora and fauna. The idea appealed to Mrs. Hayes, and Davis was asked to assume direction of the designs. The original set comprised 562 total pieces for 9 courses, including appetizer/oyster, soup, fish, entree, roast, ices, game, salad, dessert, and fruit & cheese with coffee. The service was decorated with 130 different American plants, animals, and scenic views, and created a public sensation. Shortly after it was delivered to the White House in 1880, Davis granted Haviland the right to duplicate many of the pieces from the Hayes service for sale to the public. On these, the original patent mark dated 1879, unique to the White House service, was replaced by a blue 1880 patent mark, as on this offered example.

His Futurist-influenced works like "Mystery" and "Legend of Atlantis" began to appear in group shows by the late 1920s. Lomoff exhibited numerous times with the Society of Independent Artists between the mid-1920s and early 1940s. In 1934, as part of the Public Works of Art Project, he painted a mural titled "Nursery Tales" in the Children's Hospital on Charity Island (now named Roosevelt Island). In 1937, amidst Congressional cuts to the Federal Arts Project, he was among those painters showing at a "Pink Slip Exhibition" in New York City. Subsequently, "Toilers of the Sea" appeared at the Brooklyn Museum (1943), and he was part of an innovative 1946 exhibit at Loew's Mayfair Theatre in Times Square–which had been organized following Thomas Hart Benton's statement that art should be in public places and not "buried in mausoleum-like art galleries." He is known for his Abstract cubist, and social realist paintings. (Adapted from Genesee Valley Council on the Arts).

Murray (Murry) (American, Georgia, 1908-1988) folk art "spirit writing" painting on paper towel, water color and marker. 35" W x 11 1/8" H (total surface with writing). Biography: John Bunion Murray was an African American artist who grew up in rural Glascock County, GA where he worked as a tenant farmer. At the age of 50, his wife left him, and his eleven grown children had moved from home, leaving Murray in isolation, where he turned to art. He began creating "yard shows" displaying his works on his front porch and into his home. Using predominately primary colors, he expressed his beliefs and emotions through abstract works, each color having consistent meaning. Though he could not read or write, he created his own cursive writing inscribed in many of his works called "spirit writing" which he was able to read through a glass bottle he called "holy water" while praying. His body of work reveals his experience as an African American in the rural south with a unique faith and a surreal imagination.

I have said he, often and often in the course of the Session, and the vicissitudes of my hopes and fears as to its issue, looked at that behind the President without being able to tell whether it was rising or setting: But now at length I have the happiness to know that it is a rising and not a setting Sun" (https://www.ushistory.org/more/sun.htm).
