15 THEODORE VAN SOELEN (1890-1964) Untitled oil on canvas 34 x 36 inches signed lower center: VanSoelen Theodore Van Soelen’s earliest training began in his hometown at the St. Paul Institute of Arts and Sciences. He went on to earn a travel-study scholarship to Europe while at the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts, before relocating to Albuquerque in 1916 for health considerations. After four years illustrating and painting, he wanted to observe Indian life more closely, so he moved to a remote trading post. A stay on a Texas ranch offered Van Soelen pointed insights into the life of the working cowboy, a theme he explored both in paint and print throughout his career. Eventually, he settled in Tesuque, just north of Santa Fe, where he recorded the area and its inhabitants, and created works such as Untitled, a hymn to an ordinary autumn day in northern New Mexico.

21 WARREN E. ROLLINS (1861-1962) Pueblo at Santa Fe, 1910 oil on canvas 26 x 40 inches signed and dated lower right: W E Rollins - / 1910 Warren E. Rollins achieved his greatest successes on canvas in the years between 1908 and 1928. His sensitivity to his surroundings can largely be attributed to his practice of painting his subjects from within their communities. Rollins’ reputation preceded him when he arrived in Santa Fe in 1910—the year the present work was completed—and, in time, he served as Dean of the Santa Fe School, first president of the Santa Fe Art Club, and as an art instructor at the Palace of the Governors. His landscapes and town views were among the first to be shown at the newly established Museum of New Mexico and, between 1916 and 1977, he was featured in no fewer than twenty-five museum exhibitions in Santa Fe.

24 HOMER BOSS (1882-1956) Empty House Near San Gabriel oil on canvas 20 x 24 inches signed lower left: HOMER BOSS Massachusetts-born Homer Boss was a silent party to some of the twentieth century’s loudest art revolutions. His early style was influenced by his teachers, from William Merritt Chase to Thomas Anschutz to Robert Henri. He would participate in the 1910 Exhibition of Independent Artists exhibition and the landmark International Exhibition of Modern Art, or Armory Show, in 1913. After teaching at the Independent School, Art Students League, and Parsons School of Design in New York, Boss visited New Mexico in 1925, before settling permanently in Santa Cruz, a small community north of Santa Fe, in 1933. Boss’s modernist-leaning landscapes, such as Empty House Near San Gabriel, speak volumes about his training and, indeed, about his affections for the Southwest.

As a child, he taught himself to draw and would paint pictures of the Indians and their horses that would come through the trading post. Around 1900, Black moved with his family to Chicago and, in 1906, enrolled in art classes at the Art Institute of Chicago, where he studied until 1908 while also working as a newspaper illustrator. Due to declining health, Black relocated to the arid climate of Taos in the 1920s. While there, Black produced numerous paintings of the Indians of the region, either on horseback or engaged in everyday activities. Painted in an impressionistic style with bold swaths of color, works like Taos Winter Morning are some of the most celebrated of the artist’s career.

47 SHELDON PARSONS (1866-1943) Autumn Afternoon, Velarde, NM oil on board 16 x 20 inches signed lower left: Sheldon PARSONS Sheldon Parsons’ talent for portraiture, the genre for which he was best known early in his career, emerged while he was still a student at the National Academy of Design. Following his wife’s untimely death in 1913, Parsons and his daughter, Sara, sold their possessions and traveled to Denver, Colorado, before settling permanently in Santa Fe. Parsons was welcomed warmly by Santa Feans and, captivated by the color and light of his new home, he recorded the town, nearby Indian Pueblos, and natural beauty of the New Mexico desert and surrounding mountains. Parsons became an accomplished landscape artist, ultimately adapting his early Barbizon and Impressionist training to the sun-soaked scenery of the Southwest. Serving for a time as an administrator at the Museum of New Mexico, he fostered many later arrivals to the thriving artistic community in Santa Fe.

70 WALTER UFER (1876-1936) The White Pack oil on canvas 12 ¼ x 16 ¼ inches signed lower right: wufer inscribed on stretcher: The White Pack by W Ufer One of Walter Ufer’s many contributions as a member of the Taos Society was an honest, tactile representation of Pueblo life and culture – the result of his German heritage and training, his affinity to contemporary American Realism, and his sensitivity to the tension inherent in the gradual absorption of one culture by another. Ufer was both a humanitarian and political radical whose belief in labor rights and security extended to artists. Less romanticized than those of Couse or Phillips, Ufer’s Taos pictures often contain subtle social commentary that may, in part, be explained by his egalitarian views. Born in Lexington, Kentucky in 1876, Ufer’s father was a German emigrant who apprenticed his son to a local lithographer after recognizing his nascent talent for drawing. Ufer left Lexington for Germany in 1893, where he studied in Hamburg and at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts in Dresden. Although he was to make several more excursions to Germany over the next twenty years, Ufer settled in Chicago in 1900, the cosmopolitan outlet of the Midwest. There he earned a living by working in advertising and teaching art at the J. Francis Smith School. In 1911, Ufer returned to Germany for two years of additional study at the Royal Academy in Munich, where he worked alongside Victor Higgins and E. Martin Hennings, both fellow artists from Chicago. Returning to Chicago in 1913, Ufer initially struggled to make his way as a professional artist. Fortunately, his work attracted the attention of Carter H. Harrison, who was then serving his fifth term as the city’s mayor. Harrison bought two works at Ufer’s first one-man show, and encouraged him to visit New Mexico. Towards the end of the summer of 1914, Ufer left for Taos, where he encountered Buck Dunton, Bert Phillips, and Joseph Henry Sharp. When he returned to Chicago later that year, he was full of enthusiasm for Taos, and initiated a correspondence with his future associates in New Mexico. During this visit Ufer also acquired the patronage of Oscar Mayer and Charles Herrmann, both of whom would become important collectors of his work. The following summer he brought his wife, Mary, with him and, as his summers in New Mexico lengthened, his association with the Taos Society of Artists deepened. In August 1916, he was invited to show with the Society in a Santa Fe exhibition and, at its annual meeting on July 15, 1917, he was elected a member alongside Victor Higgins. An active member until the Society’s dissolution in 1927, Ufer painted southwestern subjects almost exclusively after 1919. The effect New Mexico had upon Ufer is discernable in his light-filled palette and strong use of shadow. His Taos scenes reflect a genuine interest in the predicament facing Pueblo culture as it hurtled towards a crossroads. Often shown in western dress, Ufer’s Indian subjects are depicted as succumbing to the forces of modernization without enjoying the benefits – an element of social realism forged from the artist's political agenda and unbridled commitment to recording the deleterious effects of an uneasy transition.

85 WILLIAM R. LEIGH (1866-1955) Blind Hopi Girl Returning from a Desert Watering Hole, 1915 oil on canvas 11 x 15 ½ inches signed lower left: W.R. LEIGH inscribed verso: First Mesa Arizona / Sept 1915 / W.R. Leigh / A blind hopi girl returning from a desert watering hoal [sic] / The original sketch, from which a picture has been painted William Robinson Leigh was born in Berkeley County, West Virginia in 1866. He began sketching at an early age and, at 12, was paid $100 for a drawing by W.W. Corcoran, founder of the Corcoran Gallery of Art. After three years of study at the Maryland Institute of Art in Baltimore, he departed for Europe, where he would spend twelve years at the Royal Academy in Munich. In 1897, after returning to New York, Leigh cemented his reputation as one of the day’s foremost illustrators through his work for leading national publications. Leigh fulfilled a childhood dream of going west when Scribner’s sent him to North Dakota on assignment in 1897. During the next 29 years, Leigh returned to the West often, sometimes on assignment and other times independently. Some of his favorite subjects were the lands of the Hopi and Navajo. In his paintings from this period, he adopted a palette of soft pinks, purples, reds, and yellows as a means of faithfully representing the landscape. So vivid were his colors that critics who had not witnessed the desert southwest firsthand railed against their unnatural brilliance. In the late 1920s, Leigh spent two years in Africa; the sketches he made on this trip were used for later illustrations. In subsequent years, he executed a series of historical dioramas for the Museum of Natural History in New York. All the while he continued to paint western subjects, relying on earlier compositions for inspiration. Leigh’s enormous talent enabled him to document the rapidly fading West, from its impressive landscapes to the daily routines of its native inhabitants, as in Blind Hopi Girl Returning from a Desert Watering Hole.

He made his first trip west in 1893, when he traveled to the Ute Reservation in the southwest corner of Colorado. He subsequently traveled to Arizona, where he sketched cowboys and photographed the native populations. It was here that he learned sign language and became fluent in Dakota Sioux, a skill that enabled him to communicate with the Indians and arrange for portrait sessions. During his travels, Schreyvogel visited with several different tribes, including the Utes, Apaches, Bloods, Blackfoot, Crow, Sioux, and Ponca, throughout the Dakotas, Montana, Arizona and Colorado.

147 ALBERT SCHMIDT (1885-1957) Harvesting the Hay oil on canvas 16 x 40 Ÿ inches In 1921, when Albert Schmidt and his family were on their way to California, they stopped in Santa Fe, fell in love with the area, and decided to stay. Schmidt was struck by the expanse of the northern New Mexico landscape and devoted his entire life to painting those scenes. He relied on the European academic traditions he learned at the Art Institute of Chicago, in addition to the more modern techniques he absorbed by way of his travels: the patchwork color of the Impressionists, the serpentine lines of Art Nouveau, the blocky masses of the Cubists, and the bright colors of the Expressionists. Schmidt’s love for the land encouraged a special interest in light and color effects, design, and tonal harmonies, as well as in the rhythms and routines of farm life, as evidenced by Harvesting the Hay. He discovered in New Mexico a place where he could feel at peace with himself, and a place where human scale was not diminished by buildings but, rather, complemented by mountains, trees, and panoramic vistas. His career-long experiments in color, composition, and medium fostered a distinct body of work: still life, landscapes, figure studies, and genre scenes that run the gamut from tender to dynamic.

228 FRANK APPLEGATE (1881-1931) Untitled (Indian Village), ca. 1925 oil on canvas 24 x 27 inches signed lower right: F.G. Applegate inscribed verso: Frank G. Applegate / Santa Fe / N.M. Frank Applegate and his family arrived in Santa Fe in September 1921. By the second week of the month, the family had purchased land on Camino del Monte Sol where Los Cinco Pintores, a group of five young painters, would also build their homes. Although trained as a ceramicist, Applegate soon turned towards painting. In 1923, the New Mexico Painters, an avant-garde group of artists, was established. The group included Applegate, Jozef Bakos, Ernest Blumenschein, William P. Henderson, Gustave Baumann, Victor Higgins, Walter Ufer, and B.J.O. Nordfeldt. Their first exhibition was held in October 1923 at the Montross Gallery in New York. The following year, five more artists—including John Sloan, Andrew Dasburg, and Theodore Van Soelen—joined the group. By the mid-1920s, Applegate began working almost exclusively in watercolor. He focused on landscapes, town and street scenes, Indian ceremonies, and rural villages. After 1927, several members of the New Mexico Painters, including Applegate, regrouped as the Santa Fe Society of Artists. He continued to exhibit in major shows at the Art Institute of Chicago and Corcoran Gallery of Art in Washington, DC, with the Denver Art Museum awarding Applegate a one-man exhibition in November 1927.

231 JULIUS ROLSHOVEN (1858-1930) Taos Warriors oil on canvas 34 x 43 inches signed lower left: J. Rolshoven / TAOS - N.M. In 1916, after several years living and exhibiting abroad, Julius Rolshoven visited Taos. He remained in northern New Mexico for the next four to five years, was elected an associate member of the Taos Society of Artists in 1917, and became an active member the following year. Rolshoven was fascinated with pueblo culture, and admired deeply the way the Taos Indians coexisted peacefully with their natural surroundings. His style was rooted in the late nineteenth-century artistic principles of allegory and classicism, and his romantic paintings of Taos won critical favor within more traditional circles. Although his time in northern New Mexico was productive—as evidenced by Taos Warriors, a dynamic 34 x 43-inch canvas—Rolshoven returned to Europe in 1919.

Gaspard’s application of color and suggestive rather than definitive brushwork indicate an interest in Impressionism, yet he remained too devoted to representation to ever fully embrace abstraction. Although Gaspard was advised by artist John Marin to “go modern,” he elected instead to emphasize the values—and the customs, costumes, and traditions—of his pueblo subjects.1 Provenance: Fenn Galleries Ltd., Santa Fe, New Mexico (label affixed to verso) From a Private Collection $10,000 - $20,000

246 RAYMOND JONSON (1891-1982) Santa Fe Placita, 1925 oil on canvas 20 x 24 inches signed and dated lower right: Jonson / ‘25 Raymond Jonson was born in Iowa in 1891. After saving up enough money he went to Chicago where he studied under B.J.O. Nordfeldt at the Chicago Academy of Fine Arts and, later, at the Art Institute of Chicago. Following the completion of his education, Jonson spent several years working for the Chicago Little Theater as graphic arts director. Seeking a break from the city and longing to visit his friend, the poet John Curtis Underwood, Jonson made his first trip to Santa Fe in 1922. Immediately enamored of the landscape and region’s vast open spaces, Jonson settled in Santa Fe in 1924, staying until 1949. Once in Santa Fe, he established himself with the modernist painters in the area and, eventually, co-founded the Transcendental Painters Group. Jonson spent his first several years in Santa Fe experimenting with the gradual abstraction of natural forms, which maintained some roots in naturalistic representation, but ultimately transitioned to complete abstraction by around 1927. Santa Fe Placita was executed in 1925, a year after Jonson settled permanently in Santa Fe. The cool tones of the undulating landscape and the forms of traditional adobe architecture are clearly presented; however, Jonson’s interest in abstraction is evident, particularly in his treatment of the foreground and clouds and mountains on the horizon.

McClary Willard Nash was one of the earliest and most sophisticated artists of the Santa Fe Art Colony and a founding member of the artists’ group known as Los Cinco Pintores, or “The Five Painters.” This group, comprised of Willard Nash, Jozef Bakos, Will Shuster, Fremont Ellis, and Walter Mruk, believed in experimenting freely with modernist painting methods. They were united in their desire to experiment in the then avant-garde methods of Cubism, Fauvism and Expressionism. Under the tutelage of Andrew Dasburg, Nash, more so than the other members of Los Cinco Pintores, explored the structural principals of fragmented form made famous by Paul Cézanne. After moving to Santa Fe from Detroit in 1921, Nash’s work became increasingly infused with an abstract simplicity and Cubist spirit, and he became known to journalists and art critics of the 1930s and 1940s as the “American Cézanne.” Mexican muralist, Diego Rivera, further solidified Nash’s reputation in the early 1930s by calling him “one of the six greatest living American artists,” whose paintings proved there was “still personality in American art.” A Cubist sensibility—flattened space, bold color juxtapositions, and a semblance of nature and architecture—and, arguably, a great deal of personality, underscore Nash’s Santa Fe Landscape.

250 GEORGE BELLOWS (1882-1925) Santa Fe Canyon, 1917 oil on canvas 18 x 22 inches signed lower left (by artist’s wife): Geo. Bellows / ESB George Bellows was one of the most highly acclaimed American realist painters of the twentieth century. Known primarily for his depictions of New York, prize fighters and tenement children, Bellows was instrumental in the shift of American art into the modern era. Bellows arrived in New York in 1904, and immediately began studying with Robert Henri, who would remain influential to Bellows throughout his career, at the New York School of Art. In 1909, Bellows was the youngest artist to receive the honor of being elected an Associate member of the National Academy of Design, following his receipt of a prize in their annual exhibition the preceding year. Additionally, Bellows was one of twenty-five members of the Association of American Painters & Sculptors involved in organizing the groundbreaking Armory Show of 1913, which forever changed the course of American art. From 1912-1919, at the suggestion of his mentor Henri, Bellows would spend his summers in Maine and paint landscapes up and down the coast, with the exception of 1917, when he went to Carmel, California for four months to work on a portrait commission. On his way back east, he traveled through Santa Fe to visit friends Leon Kroll and Henri. Santa Fe Canyon was completed during Bellows’ brief stay in Santa Fe in 1917. A beautiful, richly colored landscape of the river flowing at the bottom of the Santa Fe canyon, the present work is a fine example of Bellows’ skill with color and composition.

134

Known for his use of very expressive color, Bellows was often viewed as a spontaneous painter, but in reality was very thoughtful and planned not only his compositions but also the palette of his paintings quite meticulously.1 Bellows died suddenly in 1915, at the age of 42, from appendicitis, while still at the height of his talent.

270 THOMAS MORAN (1837-1926) A Deer in a Mountain Landscape watercolor and pencil on paper mounted on board 10 x 14 inches monogrammed lower left: TM Thomas Moran was one of the foremost artists responsible for introducing America to its western frontier. Born in England, Moran immigrated to the United States with his family in 1844. At the age of 16, he commenced a three-year apprenticeship in a wood engraving firm in Philadelphia, his only formal training. He was painting independently at this time, and participated in his first public show around 1856, exhibiting six watercolors at the Philadelphia Academy of Design. In 1862, Moran traveled to England with his brother, marine painter Edward Moran. While Edward studied at the Royal Academy, Thomas copied the paintings of J.M.W. Turner at the South Kensington Museum (now the Victoria & Albert Museum). Long familiar with, and deeply appreciative of, Turner’s work through engraved reproductions, Moran was even more impressed upon viewing the paintings in person. He was particularly taken with the paintings’ luminosity, which he attempted to recreate in his copies, and which he later emulated in his own work. In 1870, Scribner’s Magazine commissioned Moran to produce a series of etchings of Yellowstone. The artist made his inaugural trip to Yellowstone a year later, accompanying the geological survey led by Dr. Ferdinand Hayden. The sketches and watercolors from this trip appeared in Scribner’s while, at the same time, serving as models for the artist’s fully-fledged oil paintings. When, in 1872, Congress purchased one of Moran’s paintings of the Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone to hang in the Capitol, he emerged as one of the nation’s most celebrated painters of the West. In the course of his career, Moran traveled extensively throughout the western United States—to the Rocky Mountains, the Grand Canyon, Yosemite, and the Tetons—and, in time, recorded the splendor of all eight of the newly established national parks. Moran did not produce topographically accurate images but, rather, composed large-scale paintings in his studio, combining various elements from the detailed field sketches he executed. Rather than record a specific sight faithfully, he sought to capture the essence of a place. From Castle Butte to Lake Tahoe, as well as destinations in between, Moran extolled the virtue—and the beauty and majesty—of the landscape of the West.

271 W. HERBERT “BUCK” DUNTON (1878-1936) Autumn (Mule Deer) oil on canvas 16 x 20 inches signed lower left: Dunton inscribed verso: Autumn / (Mule Deer) / by / W. Herbert Dunton / $950.00 Prior to his first visit to Taos in 1912, W. Herbert “Buck” Dunton traveled extensively throughout the West. His illustrative material for national periodicals centered on the open range, cowboys, and on the customs and traditions of native peoples. After returning to the East, Dunton enrolled in a course at the Arts Students League taught by Ernest L. Blumenschein, who, in 1914, encouraged Dunton to relocate to Taos. Once there, Dunton gave up illustration for painting and, a few years later, emerged as one of the founding members of the Taos Society of Artists. Dunton was raised as a keen outdoorsman from the earliest days of his Maine childhood, and hunting and fishing were to remain the centerpiece of his adult life in Taos. In younger years he worked as a cowboy in Montana—in the great tradition of Charles M. Russell—and became fast friends with a noted grizzly hunter, with whom he explored the mountains, filling sketchbooks all the while. Despite years in Boston and New York, rough and rugged outdoor life was Dunton’s preferred mode of living. Paintings like Autumn (Mule Deer) reflect the artist’s career-long love affair with the natural world and its inhabitants.

274 CHARLES M. RUSSELL (1864-1926) Buffalo on the Move, 1904 watercolor, gouache and pencil on paper 10 x 15 inches signed and dated lower left: CMRussell / (artist’s cipher) 1904 Born into an affluent St. Louis family, Russell went to Montana at the age of fifteen, first working on a sheep ranch and then working as a cowboy for several outfits. It was an outdoor life – a life that gave him enormous knowledge of and love for the landscape, dress, people, and customs of the West. In 1892, he moved to Great Falls, Montana and from then on he was determined to work as a professional, fulltime artist. With an unparalleled ability to depict a place and way of life that was rapidly disappearing, his work has been likened to “a great window opening on the past.” By the time Russell had settled in Montana, the Indian settlements there (Blackfoot, Arapaho, Kootenai, and Crow tribes) were receding due to the growing ranches and cattle business. Russell spent time with one tribe—the Bloods—both for friendship and with an artistic motivation. His reverence for the Indians, whom he described as “the only real American,” translated into his art. Russell had a number of favorite subjects, variations on which he would depict many times over, in bronze, on canvas, and on paper. The one he seemingly enjoyed more than any other was groups of Indians hunting buffalo, or buffalo herds on the Plains. In these works, Russell pays homage to the beauty, majesty and, for the Indian tribes he encountered, the cultural significance of the animal. Throughout his career, Russell’s depiction of the buffalo assumed many forms, from rapid pencil sketches to deliberately executed oil paintings. For Russell, as for many other western artists, the extinction of the buffalo in the late nineteenth century came to symbolize the poignant passing of the Old West and a treasured way of life. In much the same way that many of his compositions show compassion for the plight of the American Indian, Buffalo on the Move is indicative of the artist’s sympathy for these animals that once dominated the Plains. Perhaps Peter Hassrick best described Russell’s commiseration with the plight of the buffalo: In any event, once the herds vanished, they, like the pre-reservation Indian, claimed a warm place in Russell’s heart. In his day he garnered the reputation as the best painter of the buffalo. His quiet, reserved portrayals…proved his skill as an animal painter while revealing the reverence he felt for these monarchs of the prairie. With such sympathy for and pride in these beasts, it is little wonder that the artist chose the buffalo skull as part of his monogram.

275 CARL RUNGIUS (1869-1959) Prairie Wolf oil on canvas 30 x 40 inches signed lower right: C. Rungius. Carl Clemens Mortiz Rungius was born near Berlin, Germany, on August 18, 1869. He was the first son of the Reverend Heinrich and Magdalene Rungius. His childhood home was located on the outskirts of the German capital, and despite the Industrial Revolution that was sweeping Europe, still retained a farm-country atmosphere. Open fields, meandering streams, and patches of woodland became Rungius' playground. His father and grandfather were Lutheran ministers, their calling divided between the church and an active interest in natural history. Each had his sphere of expertise. Carl’s father, in today’s parlance, could be considered an amateur ornithologist and conservationist. His extensive plantings about the home attracted a wide variety of indigenous birdlife, which he observed and catalogued. Grandfather Rungius was a fine animal draftsman, who also dabbled in taxidermy. It is no surprise that such an environment formed the boy’s fascination with all things wild. His art education began at the Berlin Kunstschule (Art School) in preparation for the Kunstakademie (Academy of Art), which he attended for three winters. Though he completed the necessary work, he spent most of his free time at the Berlin Zoo where, drawing and sketching, he afforded special attention to the big cats, lions and lionesses, and tigers. His drawings highlighted all aspects of the animals’ physiognomy: legs, paws, musculature, and heads. Despite finding success as a draftsman, Rungius had few prospects for a comfortable income and soon accepted his uncle’s invitation to visit America. A principle commercial outlet for artists of the 1890s was the myriad of New York-based publishers of books and periodicals. Artists of the rank of Abbey, Remington, Pyle, Frost, Kemble, and Gibson graced the pages of weekly and monthly magazines. Rungius’ drawings and paintings found a ready admirer in George Bird Grinnell, conservationist-editor of Forest and Stream Weekly. For ten years, from the winter of 1894 through 1904, illustrations signed “C. Rungius” appeared in a diverse array of publications. Indeed, nearly every species of North American game was depicted in periodicals such as Forest and Stream, Everybody’s Recreation, and Outing. In heart, spirit, and temperament, Rungius was a painter, not an illustrator. After hunting and painting trips to New Brunswick from 19011910, and the Yukon in 1904, his fascination with North American game deepened. In time, Rungius shed his reputation as an illustrator and achieved critical acclaim on the merits of his painting alone. Trained in the school of German Romantic Realism, his early works reveal the influence of animal painter, Richard Friese, in style, composition and color. However, it was Rungius’ grounding in the German tradition that truly distinguished his pictures, whether of bull moose, bighorn sheep, or the Prairie Wolf, an uncommon subject within his oeuvre. Seamlessly comingling technical skill and anatomical accuracy with a passion for wildlife and the outdoors, Rungius remains the pre-eminent portrayer of North American animals and their habitats.

286 DAVID SHEPHERD (b. 1931) Kicking Up Dust, 1974 oil on canvas 28 x 66 inches signed and dated lower right: -David Shepherd- ‘74 inscribed verso: © 1974 DAVID SHEPHERD David Shepherd, CBE, was born in London in 1931. When he was 8 years old, he won first prize in a painting competition for the magazine, Nursery World, before matriculating into the Stowe School in Buckinghamshire. Upon the completion of his education, Shepherd traveled to Nairobi, Kenya with the intent of becoming a game warden. Unable to find work, he returned home to London and, upon the advice of his father, applied for admission to The Slade School of Fine Art. Rejected from the school, although committed to a career as a professional artist, Shepherd entered the studio of Robin Goodwin, a painter of portraits and marine life, with whom he studied for three years. In 1960, Shepherd sold his first wildlife painting—a depiction of an African rhinoceros, painted from life in Kenya—to the British Royal Airforce for £25. From this point forward, Shepherd’s career has been underscored by an intensive exploration of, and appreciation for, African game. Although equally celebrated for landscapes, portraits, and paintings of aircraft and steam locomotives, his wildlife pictures—and those of elephants above all—have earned him international acclaim. A committed conservationist and outspoken anti-poaching activist, Shepherd is founder of the David Shepherd Wildlife Foundation, an organization committed to saving endangered mammals in the wild. According to David Gower, art critic for The Times, “there is a sense of the atmosphere of the African bush that emanates from all [of Shepherd’s] work.”1 In Kicking Up Dust, Shepherd presents a frieze-like composition of eleven elephants, bathed in sunlight and advancing towards the viewer. The brush and dry grass of the savanna are only faintly described, offering a counterpoint to the more carefully delineated elephants that occupy the middleground of the canvas. Shepherd accentuates the beauty, power, and majesty of the animals, while sharing a conservationist’s familiarity with the elephants’ anatomy. One of the larger depictions of African elephants to be presented at auction, and certainly one of the more engaging, Kicking Up Dust is an impressive example of one of Shepherd’s most collectible subjects.

291 WINOLD REISS (1886-1953) Falling Over the Bank, 1928 oil on canvas 48 x 36 inches signed lower right: Winold / Reiss Fritz Winold Reiss, better known as Winold Reiss, was born in Karlsruhe, Germany. He was raised in the Black Forest, where he studied under his father, who painted landscapes. Reiss also studied with Franz von Stuck at the Royal Academy in Munich and with Wilhelm von Diez at the Art School in Munich. Reiss came to the United States in 1913, and, inspired by the novels of James Fenimore Cooper, he planned to paint the American Indian. He was surprised, however, upon his arrival in New York, to learn that, in fact, there were not many Indians in the Northeastern United states at that point. He had been under the impression, from the historical novels he had read, that one could find Indians in America simply by venturing a few miles from any major city, so discovering that he would have to travel much further west to see any Indians frustrated him as an artist. Having no funds to make such a journey at the time, he remained in New York, establishing an art school in Woodstock and otherwise supporting himself and his family in any way he could. His intention to travel to the American West was further delayed by the outbreak the First World War, when prejudices against Germans in America made it difficult for him to both earn a living and to travel. Therefore, it was Robert Henri, who did not have these obstructions, who became the first artist to paint formal Indian portraits with a modern perspective. However, it was Winold Reiss who painted the Native Americans in their own settings rather than “importing” them to a studio, as was Henri’s practice in both New Mexico and California. It was this interaction with the native people in their territories, villages and homes that allowed Reiss to truly capture the nuances of each sitter–from the different physiognomies to the details of their outfits and possessions. In 1927, the Great Northern Railroad commissioned Reiss to paint portraits of the Blackfeet Indians in Glacier Park, Montana, to promote westward travel through posters, calendars and general décor in the trains and stations. Reiss was immediately enamored of Glacier and of the Blackfoot people, and returned for many years afterward, often inviting his art students in New York to accompany him, and ultimately establishing a summer art school. The first summer, 1927, was quite lucrative for Reiss, as the Great Northern Railroad was very pleased with his work and purchased 51 paintings at the end of the season. During this first summer, Reiss became intimate with the Blackfeet, and they with him. Reiss’ son, Tjark Reiss, who accompanied him on his western summer trips, recalled that his father preferred to paint his Indian subjects while others watched, and remarked upon his work: When my father was painting, there were always a few Indians sitting around watching him, telling stories to each other and commenting on the pictures. My father worked best with the constant murmur going on in the background. The intimate setting of the present work and its candid quality reflects this strong relationship and empathy with the Blackfeet people, and the degree to which Reiss became accustomed with their daily activities and habits. The subject of this work, Falling Over the Bank, was a Blackfoot Indian from the Blood clan, with whom Reiss associated during his summers in Montana. This work strongly conveys Reiss’ interest in design, reflected in his attention to the various patterns that appear in the background and on the man’s clothing. However, it also reflects Reiss’ commitment to portraying his Indian subjects in a dignified manner. Rather than asking his sitters to pose in what Reiss considered “gimmicky” or demeaning postures, astride a horse or pretending to dance, for example, as other artists of the time did, Reiss only painted his Indian sitters in poses they would assume naturally, as part of daily life, and more often, he simply focused on their faces. Accordingly, Reiss painted Falling Over the Bank smoking a stone-carved pipe, probably a pose the subject chose. He also included the tobacco “chopping and mixing board,” seen in the foreground, and the Indian’s tobacco pouch. The Indian is sitting in a tipi decorated with typical Blackfoot designs, with a backrest behind him. Reiss did not often paint such detailed backgrounds in his portraits, often choosing a solid color or sold pattern as background, so this attention to detail reflects the extra work, and special interest he bestowed on this work and in his Indian sitter. Although Falling Over the Bank is part of Reiss’ remarkable series of work depicting Native Americans, it is also a unique work for this artist. As his presentation painting at the National Academy, the portrait is significant in that it is a complete rendering of the subject’s figure–unlike many of Reiss’ other portraits which show only the head and shoulders of his subjects. Moreover, the artist painted Falling Over the Bank in oil, a more permanent and “important” medium, and on a much larger scale, signifying Reiss’ awareness that this is one of his masterworks.

292 GILBERT GAUL (1855-1919) Indians in Firelight oil on canvas 39 x 29 inches signed lower left: Gilbert Gaul Born in Jersey City, New Jersey, Gilbert Gaul quickly emerged as a painter of highly realistic western scenes. He attended classes in Newark and at the Claverack Military Academy, but ill health prevented him from pursuing a naval career. In the 1870s, he enrolled in the National Academy of Design and at the Art Students League, where, respectively, he studied under Lemuel Wilmarth and J.G. Brown. In 1882, he was elected a member of the National Academy of Design. Gaul spent four years in Van Buren, Tennessee, painting Civil War scenes and rural genre, in addition to working as an illustrator for Harper’s Monthly. In the late 1870s, he made numerous trips out West, during which time he lived on Army posts and with Indian tribes. Throughout his travels, he both photographed and sketched the people and places he visited. From his studios in New York City and Nashville, he executed fully-fledged oil paintings based on these preliminary studies. In the 1880s, he was among a group of eleven artists—including Peter Moran, Julian Scott, and Walter Shirlaw—commissioned by the Federal Government to illustrate the Eleventh Census of 1890. The result was one of the most comprehensive sources of American Indian life ever created. Provenance: Collection of Kathleen and Gerald Peters, Santa Fe, New Mexico $50,000 - $75,000

Although highly regarded today for his sensitive representations of Native Americans and anatomical studies of animals, little is known of Humphriss’ life and career. Born in England, Humpriss studied sculpture in Warwick with Thomas H. Kendall, who also employed Humphriss’ father, a sculptor and woodcarver. Humphriss immigrated to New York City in the late 1880s or early 1890s where, eventually, he would make his reputation as a sculptor. A member of the National Sculpture Society and the Society of Independent Artists, Humphriss exhibited bronzes at the National Academy of Design and at the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts. By 1902, he was employed at the Art Students League in New York as a sculpture instructor. The American West provided the inspiration for Humphriss’ many depictions of Native Americans and their traditions, while works like Indian Chief in Eagle Feathered Headdress reveal the sculptor’s abiding interest in native costumes and his thoughtful approach to physiognomy.

303 CHARLES SCHREYVOGEL (1861-1912) The Last Drop #5, 1903, cast 1904 bronze 5 11 ¾ x 18 ¾ x 5 inches inscribed: Copyrighted 1903 by Chas. Schreyvogel / Roman Bronze Works N.Y. stamped: 5 Charles Schreyvogel was born in New York City and became famous for his scenes of western military life through his paintings, illustrations, lithographs, and sculpture. He grew up on the Lower East Side of Manhattan and as a child sold newspapers and worked as an office boy while attending public school. He later earned a living in a variety of ways, including working as a pipe carver, an engraver, and a diesinker, before apprenticing to a lithographer in 1877. Within three years he was working as an independent lithographic artist, supplementing his income by teaching drawing. Generous patronage financed his study in Munich under Carl Marr and Frank Kirchbach, with whom he spent three years from 1887-1890. After sketching the performers of Buffalo Bill’s Wild West show in New York, Schreyvogel spent the duration of 1893 in the West. For five months he sketched at the Ute Reservation in Colorado before traveling to Arizona to observe and record the life of cowboys. The Last Drop, Schreyvogel’s second sculpture, was conceived as a model for the artist’s painting of the same name, a portrayal of the close relationship between a soldier and his horse. The artist utilized both Roman Bronze Works (for the initial castings and subsequent estate casts) and Cellini Foundry.

306 ALBERT BIERSTADT (1830-1902) Western Sunset, ca. 1863-73 oil on panel 8 x 10 inches monogrammed lower left: AB Some of Albert Bierstadt’s most exquisite works are his small landscapes, and the painting, Western Sunset, is a prime example of this genre. Because the artwork is not inscribed, it is not possible to identify the scene with certainty, but it compares most closely to the landscape views that Bierstadt did of Lake Tahoe, California. He visited the area several times between 1863 and 1873, recording the lake at different seasons and varying times of day and night. Western Sunset depicts a small cove along a lake’s shore. As are many of Bierstadt’s paintings, it is a sophisticated composition with a complex design of light and shadow that the artist uses to draw the viewer into the picture and to guide the eye around the whole of the painting. The eye is first drawn to the brightest spot on the canvas, the white reflection of the setting sun. Attracted to the bright light, the eye follows the reflection to the sun itself. Following the light emanating from the setting sun, the viewer is guided diagonally up and right, across the expanse of the sunlit clouds to the dark clump of trees which lead ultimately back to the lowly lit foreground and the curving line of the bank, which leads left across the front of the picture past a crane that stands on the shore to the rocks and trees on the far left that catch the last of the sun’s light. The painting is a wonderful yet subtle arrangement of contrasts. In addition to light versus dark, there is drama versus calm as seen in the dramatic sky that contrasts with the quiet foreground and the still lake. Just left of center, the crane waits patiently for his evening meal. The artist also juxtaposes detail with simplicity: the foreground is strewn with wildflowers, grasses and rocks whereas the horizon line is indistinct: an intervening atmospheric haze has obscured the distant mountains successfully creating a sense of depth to the scene. Hallmarks of many of Bierstadt’s western landscapes and particularly his Tahoe scenes include the presence of both deciduous and conifer trees, wildflowers dotting the foreground and boulders artfully placed to balance the composition. While we cannot be certain that Western Sunset depicts Lake Tahoe, assuredly it catches the magic of a setting sun in the scenic West and exhibits many of the stylistic elements that characterize the artist at his best.

308 FREDERICK W. MACMONNIES (1863-1937) Kit Carson, modeled 1910, cast ca. 1935 bronze 13 24 ¾ x 17 x 10 inches inscribed: F. MACMONNIES / ROMAN BRONZE WORKS N.Y. stamped underside: RB No 13 Frederick William MacMonnies was born September 28, 1863, in Brooklyn Heights, New York. He began his art studies in 1878 at a school in Lower Manhattan, and soon came to the attention of America’s premier sculptor, Augustus Saint-Gaudens. Saint-Gaudens employed MacMonnies as a studio assistant for two years before allowing him to become a formal apprentice. MacMonnies studied at the Art Students League, the National Academy of Design, and Cooper Union before leaving New York for Paris in 1884. He attended the Académie Colarossi and was accepted for the Ecole des Beaux-Arts. There, he gained recognition when, in two successive years, he won the highest prize available to foreigners, the Prix d’Atelier, which was second only to the Prix de Rome. As an expatriate in Paris from 1884-1914, MacMonnies absorbed the principles of the Beaux-Arts style. With a strong preference for working in bronze, he followed the lead of his master, Saint-Gaudens, and the contemporary French sculptors with whom he studied in Paris. MacMonnies enjoyed great professional success as the recipient of many important public commissions. Moreover, he was well received by the critics and was one of the most commercially successful artists of his time. One of his last public sculptural groups, and his only work based on a western theme, is Pioneer Monument to Kit Carson, which was commissioned in 1906 and completed

178

by 1911 for the city of Denver. On the base of the large monument are figures representing a pioneer mother and her child, a prospector, and Kit Carson. These figures are surmounted by a heroic representation of Kit Carson on his horse, with the pioneer-explorer gesturing toward the West. Several reduced versions of the monumental portrait were cast by the sculptor’s two favored foundries: the Jaboeuf & Rouard Foundry in Paris and Roman Bronze Works in New York. Stylistically, Kit Carson integrates the principles of the Beaux-Arts style with a naturalistic approach. It exhibits the lively surface modeling and fluid sense of movement through which MacMonnies secured his place as one of the leading innovators in the Gilded Age of American sculpture. Casts exist in the Birmingham Museum, the Norton (Shreveport), and the Denver Art Museum. Provenance: Private Collection, New York Literature: M. Smart and E.

312 WILLIAM GOLLINGS (1878-1932) The Camp Crier oil on canvas 29 ¼ x 20 inches signed and dated lower right: Gollings / (artist’s cipher) / 1925 inscribed verso: The Camp Crier Like Charles M. Russell, William Gollings was a cowboy artist who painted the way of life that he had come to know in the West. Gollings spent nearly all his life in the Sheridan area of north-central Wyoming. He knew his country “by creeks and divides,” to use his own words, and he painted the hills and fence corners that he worked on horseback. Born in the Territory of Idaho, Gollings was sent by his family to Chicago for schooling. In 1896, determined to work his way back west, the young Gollings traveled to Rapid City, South Dakota, where he signed on as a cowhand for an outfit heading for the Slim Buttes country. After a winter spent herding cattle, Gollings made his way to his brother’s ranch in Montana, on Rosebud Creek near the Yellowstone River. “I realized the cowboy days were about over,” he recalled in his autobiography. “The older men in the game told me as much, and I longed to be a part of at least the last of it.” He worked as an occasional hand over the next five years, gaining much experience, and began to make drawings of what he saw, particularly after becoming aware of Frederic Remington’s work. His fellow cowboys nicknamed him “Paint Bill,” and his efforts were reviewed in the Chicago press as being “filled with the breeziness of the plains, with spirited delineations of horses and men.” In 1909, Gollings built a small studio with a skylight in Sheridan and settled down to work. He met several other artists, most notably Edward Borein, W.H.D. Koerner, Joseph Henry Sharp, and Charles M. Russell. Gollings was in awe of Russell’s art and established a lifelong association with the Montana artist. Gollings’ own art, however, was more directly influenced by Sharp, who assisted him with his technique. “Every time I go out into the hills I get more and more convinced that there is no more West,” Gollings wrote to a friend in 1926. The West that Gollings mourned was preserved in his paintings, which remain valuable visual records of the early history of Wyoming.

316 BIRGER SANDZÉN (1871-1954) Pine and Aspen, Rocky Mountain National Park, Colorado oil on panel 30 x 40 inches signed lower right: Birger Sandzén Around 1910, Birger Sandzén developed a style of paint application and brilliant colors that made his work unique amongst his peers. He used powerful brushstrokes, strong outlines, and balanced forms to give his views of nature a vibrant impact uncommon in two dimensions, as seen in Pine and Aspen, Rocky Mountain National Park, Colorado. His rapid brushwork and thick, painterly application recall the influence of the Post-Impressionists, particularly Van Gogh. As an artist, Sandzén was concerned with the overall flow and rhythm of a landscape. Color was extremely important to him, and his rich palette included many colors, some of which can be seen in the present work, including cadmium yellow, emerald green, ultramarine blue, and cobalt violet. He also took into consideration, and tried to account for, the visual effects of the reflection and refraction of light on the natural forms he painted, according to the specific time of day and prevailing atmospheric conditions. Sandzén also discovered and appreciated the variety and divergent beauty of the western regions of the country. Beginning in 1926, he summered in Estes Park, Colorado and Logan, Utah. He visited Bryce and Zion Canyons while in Utah and traveled to the Grand Canyon in Arizona. According to Ron Michael, Director of the Birger Sandzén Memorial Gallery, “Pine and Aspen is quite a strong work from later in [the artist’s] career. The painting was originally purchased by writer and publisher, E. Haldeman-Julius, best known for printing the Little Blue Books [pamphlet series]. In 1945, Sandzén held an exhibition at Pittsburg State University and Haldeman-Julius purchased the entire exhibition, including Pine and Aspen. The sale is documented in Sandzén’s records and, though it was eventually sold, it remained in Haldeman-Julius’ family for many years." Provenance: The Artist Collection of E.

320 EANGER IRVING COUSE (1866-1936) The Lesson, 1902 oil on canvas 26 x 32 inches signed lower right: E-I-COUSEBorn in 1866 in Saginaw, Michigan, Eanger Irving Couse became familiar with Indian daily life and rituals from an early age, earning a reputation (even as a boy) as a faithful artist of the local Chippewa tribe. After raising tuition by painting houses in his hometown, Couse enrolled in the Art Institute in Chicago in 1884. The following year he moved to New York, where he became a member of the National Academy of Design. By 1887, the twenty-one year old Couse was lured to Paris, the cosmopolitan art center of the western world. In Paris, Couse immediately enrolled himself in the Académie Julian, which attracted numerous Americans due to its reputation for liberal attitudes towards experimentation. At Julian’s (as it was known to its American contingent), Couse was profoundly influenced by his professor William-Adolphe Bouguereau, who preached a classical doctrine based on Renaissance techniques and Christian values. Bouguereau, who enjoyed international acclaim as a figure painter, was immediately attracted to Couse’s strong sense of modeling and proportion. In 1902, on the advice of Joseph Henry Sharp and Ernest L. Blumenschein, Couse made his first visit to Taos. It was during this first year that he painted The Lesson. By 1906, Couse had established a residence and studio in Taos, where he lived during the summers. Although inspired by Taos, many of Couse’s paintings of Indian life were completed in his New York Studio, in keeping with the French

academic tradition. In 1928, Couse moved to Taos permanently, devoting himself entirely to painting the traditions, culture, and daily routines of the Pueblo Indians. Couse’s distinctive style and unique paintings of Indian subjects—often dramatically staged in the shadows of firelight or in varying degrees of natural light—earned him an international reputation.

321 E. MARTIN HENNINGS (1886-1956) Pueblo Village, ca. 1935 oil on canvas 30 x 36 inches signed lower right: E. Martin / Hennings. The member of the Taos Society upon whom the region had the most noticeable impact was arguably E. Martin Hennings. The surfaces of Hennings’ bright, sun-drenched landscapes, rendered with a thick yet meticulous brushstroke, have a tactile quality not unlike those of Victor Higgins. Yet, his commitment to detail and use of dramatic shadows affect a degree of hyperrealism. Frozen in the moment, Hennings’ cowboys and Indians, and even his own children, seem like fixed inhabitants of a timeless world. Hennings was born to German immigrants in Penns Grove, New Jersey in 1886. When he was two, his family moved to Chicago, which then served as the primary metropolitan link between the East and West Coasts. Hennings was drawn towards Chicago’s bustling art community, which was then centered around the Chicago Art Institute. After his first visit to the Art Institute as a teenager, Hennings knew his life had been profoundly changed, boldly proclaiming: “I know what I’m going to do; I’m going to be an artist.”1 Upon finishing high school, Hennings enrolled in the Art Institute, graduating with honors in 1904. He continued studying there until 1906, and returned briefly in 1912, disillusioned by his experiences in the commercial art world and longing for more intensive study. Although he failed to win a European scholarship in the prestigious Prix de Rome competition (he finished second), he traveled to Germany and entered the Munich Academy. In Munich, he kept company with fellow Americans, Walter Ufer and Victor Higgins, both of whom he had known from his Art Institute days. In 1915 Hennings returned to Chicago, forced to leave Germany on account of World War I. As Hennings’ reputation as an artist grew, he attracted the patronage of some of Chicago’s most respected citizens, including former Mayor Carter Harrison and Oscar Mayer, the meat-packing mogul. In 1917, Harrison suggested that Hennings work in Taos for a season, with the guarantee that any paintings executed would be purchased. Despite the profound impression that Taos had on Hennings, he did not settle in the town immediately; that winter he returned to Chicago, where he continued to work for several more years. After careful consideration of several different artists’ colonies on the East Coast, Hennings made Taos his permanent home in 1923. Already well acquainted with Ufer and Higgins, Hennings was invited to join the Taos Society of Artists later that year. A peaceable man with an appetite for intellectual stimulation, Hennings remained an active member of the Society until it disbanded in 1927.

322 RALPH MEYERS (1885-1948) The Plains Across, ca. 1919 oil on board 18 ½ x 16 ½ inches inscribed verso: The Plains Across / by Ralph Meyers / No 280. For such a small village, remote from historical centers of wealth and patronage, Taos, New Mexico harbors a breathtakingly complex and vigorous tradition of artistic expression.1 Enriched by the thousand-year-old culture of the Taos Pueblo, centuries of Spanish Colonial expression including Moorish influences from the Middle East, and decades of wondrous discovery by Anglo and European artists, the stillness of Taos is belied by its myriad currents of creativity. At the center of this cultural mix, in what may have been its most vibrant phase—the ‘teens and ‘twenties of the Twentieth Century—Indians, Spanish, Anglos and Europeans alike found Ralph Meyers. Although Meyers was out of necessity a businessman and a connoisseur of local and regional crafts, underlying all these endeavors was his dream to make a living as a painter. His first visits to Taos were on the heels of artists Bert Geer Phillips and Ernest L. Blumenschein who decided to explore the area in 1898 upon the suggestion of Cincinnati artist Joseph H. Sharp. Soon artists from around the world were summering in Taos, capturing the American Indians in traditional garb, and distilling the light and the landscape of the wide-open West in their imagery. Although few made it their permanent home, Meyers settled in for the long haul. While only some of Meyers’ paintings are dated, the chronological progression in his style, technique, and composition are perceptible. One thing that is consistent is the small size of his paintings. Meyers was forever roaming the Southwest for work and adventure and would carry with him portable canvas boards and his oils, stopping to paint where and whenever he could. His early work offers a novitiate study of the architecture of Taos Pueblo, adobe buildings, and mountain landscapes. One can sense Meyers’ feelings while he traveled the beautifully desolate territory…natives working in the field, the Spanish Peaks on the horizon en route from Denver to Northern New Mexico and tipis set against the intense colors of sunrises and sunsets that swathe the vast plains. 190

Between 1910 and 1930, Meyers was fairly prolific with the brush and canvas and heavily influenced by the Taos Society of Artists that coalesced in 1915. His landscapes, such as The Plains Across, appropriate a low horizon line, distant mountains, and large skies, akin to TSA artist Oscar E. Berninghaus and his paint handling similar in style to that of Walter Ufer.2 Although Meyers had no art education per se, he drew upon the remarkable skills of the artists around him in Taos. His oils model paintings and compositions of many of the TSA artists, especially those of friends Joseph Sharp, E.I. Couse, and Buck Dunton, and in his more mature work, the explosive brush strokes and dazzling palette of Leon Gaspard. Though Meyers came under the critical eyes of the TSA members, in his untutored manner he captured the wide-open skies and fecund landscapes of Taos in an unparalleled manner. His abilities were possibly best summed up in the book D.H. Lawrence in Taos: “He’s perhaps the only one here who can paint what can’t be seen.”3 Provenance: Private Collection, Taos, New Mexico Literature: A Taos Original: Ralph Meyers, Taos Art Museum at Fechin House, Taos, New Mexico, 2015, exh. cat., p. 18 Exhibited: A Taos Original: Ralph Meyers, Taos Art Museum at Fechin House, Taos, New Mexico, May 22-October 4, 2015 $8,000 - $12,000

330 LEON GASPARD (1882-1964) Russian Peasants, Mountains and Snow, 1935-45 oil on canvas 54 x 42 inches signed lower left: Leon Gaspard In Vitebsk, Russia, Leon Gaspard was a student of Julius Penn and Marc Chagall. He studied in Odessa and Moscow then, at age seventeen, traveled to Paris to study under Édouard Toudouze and William-Adolphe Bouguereau at the Académie Julian. His first one-person show in Paris sold out. In 1908, he married an American and took a two-year honeymoon in Siberia. The paintings from that trip were also well received in Paris. An aviator for France in World War I, Gaspard was shot down and went to New York to recover from his injuries. Urged to seek out a drier climate, Gaspard and his wife, Evelyn, first visited Taos in 1916, and settled permanently there in 1918. Gaspard’s circle of friends in Taos included notables such as Mabel Dodge Luhan, D.H. Lawrence, John Marin, Buck Dunton, and Gaspard’s countryman, Nicolai Fechin. An inveterate traveler, Gaspard left Taos regularly to undertake extensive sojourns in China, Mongolia, Tibet, North Africa, and Russia. His travels are reflected in his oeuvre—as evidenced by Russian Peasants, Mountains and Snow and In Cairo—along with vibrant New Mexico landscapes and portraits of the people of Taos Pueblo.

334 CATHERINE CRITCHER (1868-1964) Indian Drummer oil on canvas 18 x 17 inches signed lower right: C.C. Critcher When Catherine Critcher first visited Taos in 1922, she was immediately attracted to the expressive potential of the Pueblo’s Indians. While she did occasionally produce landscape scenes featuring Indians posed or on horseback, she remains best known for her portraits of the people of Taos. Although Critcher never settled permanently there, she spent summers in Taos throughout the 1920s, returning to Washington, DC in the winters to sell and exhibit her work. In 1924, alongside E. Martin Hennings, she was unanimously elected the first and only female member of the Taos Society of Artists. While the exact nature of her role within the Society remains somewhat unclear, she did participate in the Society’s exhibition circuit and remained an active member until the group disbanded in 1927. Indian Drummer, likely executed in the mid-1920s, betrays many of the hallmarks of Critcher’s Taos portraits: a spare interior space, diverse studio props—from the hanging textiles to the titular drum—and, most notably, a sitter caught (presumably) amid a contemplative moment.

335 OSCAR E. BERNINGHAUS (1874-1952) Harvest Season, ca. 1925 oil on canvas 25 x 30 ¼ inches signed lower left: O.E. BERNINGHAUS / TAOS. Of the six founding members of the Taos Society of Artists, or the “Taos Six,” Oscar E. Berninghaus was the only one who did not undergo formal artistic training in New York or Europe. Born in St. Louis in 1874, the son of a lithograph salesman, Berninghaus admired the works his father sold and tried his hand at sketching, drawing, and painting, ultimately attending art school classes to refine his talent. In 1899, he visited Taos for the first time and met Bert Geer Phillips. Taos and the northern New Mexico landscape turned out to be exactly what the painter needed to develop the full depth of his artistic sensibilities.1 Berninghaus was enchanted with New Mexican scenery and the people of the region, painting sweeping vistas of land, sky, clouds, and everyday life. His style was one of short, quick brushstrokes, lending his work a unique texture. He depicted Indians in a naturalistic, unromanticized manner, going about their lives and routines. In Harvest Season, Berninghaus presents an intimate look at an important autumn ritual.

337 VICTOR HIGGINS (1884-1949) Field Before Dotted Hills watercolor on paper 12 ¾ x 22 ¾ inches signed lower left: VICTOR HIGGINS Victor Higgins was born in Shelbyville, Indiana and, at 15, moved to Chicago after learning about the newly opened Art Institute of Chicago from a traveling sign painter. Following ten years of study in Chicago, Higgins went to New York in 1911, where he studied with Robert Henri, before leaving for additional training in London, Paris, and Munich. In 1913, Higgins returned to Chicago and was able to view the reduced-format Armory Show, which introduced the young artist to modernist painting. In 1914, at the behest of his patron, Mayor Carter Harrison, Higgins made his first trip to Taos. He immediately established residency there, painting the unchanged lifestyle of the area’s Pueblo Indians. In 1917, Higgins was invited to join the Taos Society of Artists, and remained with the group until they disbanded in 1927; however, he was not one of the most active participants and, by 1920, was spending more and more time with progressive artists, Andrew Dasburg and Kenneth Adams. Following the dissolution of the Taos Society, Higgins turned his focus almost entirely to the depiction of Cubist forms and to the patterns apparent in the surrounding landscape. In Field Before Dotted Hills, Higgins explores these Cubist tendencies through an emphasis on abstract forms, broad planes of color, and the rhythmic undulations of the northern New Mexico landscape.

After a brief stint studying to become a mechanical engineer, Marin spent several years working as a draftsman for architectural firms. At the age of twenty-eight, he chose to pursue his art education and enrolled in the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts, followed by a tenure at the Art Students League in New York. In 1905, Marin left for Paris to study abroad for five years. While in Paris, Marin was introduced to Alfred Stieglitz, who began showing his work at his New York gallery 291. The annual one-man exhibitions that Stieglitz staged of Marin’s work effectively launched his career, making him one of the most successful artists in America. In 1929, Marin embarked on his first of two trips to New Mexico and was fortunate to be there at the same time as Georgia O’Keeffe, Andrew Dasburg, and Marsden Hartley. Marin visited New Mexico again in 1930 and, during this pair of trips, created over 100 watercolors of the region. Region of Taos, NM is a superlative example of the artist’s output while in New Mexico for his second visit. With simple, confident brushwork, Marin’s modernist aesthetic complements the beauty of the region’s unique natural forms.

345 FRANK TENNEY JOHNSON (1874-1939) Mountain Meadows, 1929 oil on canvas 45 x 56 inches signed and dated lower left: F Tenney Johnson / 1929 inscribed on stretcher: Mountain Meadows. / by F. Tenney Johnson / 22 Champion Place Alhambra, Calif. / RETURN TO BILTMORE SALON Frank Tenney Johnson’s Mountain Meadows was an important painting for the artist. He painted it for the National Academy of Design’s 1929 winter exhibition. Earlier that year, on March 18, 1929, he was elected an associate member of the prestigious artist organization. It was the first step to becoming a full member, a status all artists sought, and the ultimate recognition as a fine artist. Johnson was honored with a full National Academy membership six years later, in 1937. The inspiration for Mountain Meadows came in the summer of 1928 when Johnson made a road trip to northwestern Colorado. He had been invited by Los Angeles oilman and real estate developer Alfonzo Bell to visit his ranch, the Bar Bell, just outside of Meeker, Colorado. Bell had commissioned Johnson to paint equestrian portraits of Bell and his wife. While visiting the ranch, Johnson explored the nearby White River National Forest. It was there, high in the backcountry near Trappers Lake, that Johnson found an idyllic spot for a painting. In a letter regarding the composition, Johnson wrote that the figure is a ranger and that “A thunderstorm was approaching from the right which casts the shadow over the foreground.” In the background is a mountain of the red metamorphic rock that typifies the area. The ranger and his mount, rest calmly as the storm approaches. It must have been a particularly favorite composition for the artist because he made three versions of it, all dated 1929. Colorado Forest Ranger, in the Figge Art Museum, the smallest of the three, is probably a study for Mountain Meadows. Measuring 45 x 56 inches, Mountain Meadows is a large painting for Johnson. The third version, The Forest Ranger, measures 24 x 30 inches and is signed “A.N.A.” and so was painted after Johnson was chosen to be an associate member of the National Academy of Design, and therefore the last of the three compositions to be painted. Northern Colorado held a special place in Frank Tenney Johnson’s heart. It was the region he explored when he first came west in 1904 to work on a ranch and experience life in the West. And it was this experience that set Johnson on his life’s mission to record on canvas life in the West, old and new, in a realistic but original style.

350 GERARD CURTIS DELANO (1890-1972) Land of the Dineh oil on canvas 20 x 24 inches signed lower left: Š Delano Gerard Curtis Delano was born in Massachusetts; his family traced its ancestry in North America to the early 17th century. As a young boy, Delano demonstrated talent for depicting cowboys, Indians, horses, and storybook adventures. He began his formal training in New Bedford, Massachusetts and, by 1910, was studying under George Bridgman at the Art Students League in New York. Delano also studied with Dean Cornwell, Harvey Dunn, and N.C. Wyeth at the Grand Central School of Art. In 1919, shortly after his separation from service in the United States Navy, Delano accepted a job at a ranch in Colorado. It was only after his return to New York City in 1923 that he sold his first western cover to Ace-High Magazine. This led to work with other publications, including Western Story, Adventure, Cowboy Stories, Ranch Romances, and Colliers. Despite enjoying initial success, with the onset of the Great Depression his career as a commercial artist faltered. Persevering through an economic downturn, Delano continued to work as a commercial illustrator, and by 1940 had staked his future on producing paintings rather than illustrations. Delano visited Arizona and the Navajo Reservation in 1943, and was instantly enamored of the region’s native people and natural beauty. Betraying Delano’s deep admiration for the Navajo, works like Land of the Dineh capitalize on the themes that surfaced, and resurfaced, throughout his career.

361 JACKSON POLLOCK (1912-1956) Untitled, ca. 1938-41 gouache on cardboard 11 ¼ x 19 ¾ inches Pollock’s output prior to his first generally recognized masterpiece—the 1943 painting Pasiphaë—offer a valuable glimpse into the creative evolution of one of the twentieth century’s greatest artists. Untitled reveals five separate, yet related, rectangular compositional drawings executed on a single sheet of gray cardboard. Together, the studies suggest diverse sources of inspiration, from Pollock’s friend and mentor, Thomas Hart Benton, to renowned Mexican muralist, Jose Clemente Orozco. Although vaguely suggestive of recognizable subject matter, Untitled, executed ca. 1938-41, prefigures the artist’s forthcoming experiments in non-representation.

TERMS & CONDITIONS OF SALE The following Terms and Conditions of Sale are the Santa Fe Art Auction Limited Co.’s (“Santa Fe Art Auction”) and its agents’ and consignors’ entire agreement with the prospective bidders, bidders and buyers relative to the lots listed in this catalogue. The lots will be offered by the Santa Fe Art Auction as agent for the consignors, unless the catalogue indicates otherwise.   1. The Santa Fe Art Auction operates as an agent of the seller only. It is not responsible in the event any buyer or seller at the auction fails to live up to their respective agreements, including failure of the seller to deliver any property to buyers. The Santa Fe Art Auction assumes no risk, liability, or responsibility beyond the limited warranty contained herein.     (a) Except as set forth in paragraph 1(b) below, all lots are sold “AS IS.” There are no representations or warranties that extend beyond these Terms and Conditions of Sale. All lots shall be available for examination prior to the sale. The Santa Fe Art Auction and its agents and consignors make no representations or warranties as to merchantability, fitness for a particular purpose, correctness of the catalogue or descriptions of lots, including, but not limited to, the physical condition, size, quality, rarity, importance, medium, provenance, dates, exhibitions, literary or historical relevance of any lot and no statement anywhere, whether oral or written, whether made in the catalogue, an advertisement, a bill of sale, a salesroom posting or announcement, or elsewhere, shall be deemed such a warranty, representation or assumption of liability. There are no representations and warranties, express or implied, as to whether the Buyer acquires any copyrights, including, but not limited to, any reproduction rights in any lot. Contents of this catalogue are subject to change or supplementation before or during the sale, including the sale of any lot.    (b) The authenticity of the authorship attributed to the lots as described in this catalogue is guaranteed only to the limited extent as stated in this paragraph 1(b).    (i) The authorship attributed to a lot includes name of the artist and any reservations therewith stated, as, for example, “attributed to,” “in the school of” or “appears to have been signed by.” The Santa Fe Art Auction makes no warranties whatsoever, express or implied, with respect to any material in the catalogue other than the authorship attributed to the lots.    (ii) This guarantee is further limited as follows: The benefits of this guarantee are not assignable and shall be available only to the Buyer of record; this guarantee shall remain in force and be effective only if notice of rescission is given to the Santa Fe Art Auction within three (3) years following the date of sale, provided the lot is tendered to the Santa Fe Art Auction in Santa Fe, New Mexico, in the same condition as the lot was found at the time of sale; and that the rescission of a sale and the refund of the total purchase price paid (i.e., the successful bid price, plus the buyer’s premium and applicable tax) is exclusive and in lieu of any other remedy which might otherwise be available, and that the Santa Fe Art Auction and its consignors shall not be liable to the Buyer for any incidental, consequential, special, compensatory or punitive damages.    (iii) In remitting payment hereunder, Buyer agrees and acknowledges that the absolute limit of Santa Fe Art Auction’s, its agents’ or consignors’ liability and responsibility shall not exceed the total purchase price.    2. Prospective bidders should inspect the lots before bidding to determine condition, size and whether or not the lot has been repaired or restored and to investigate all other matters relating to the lot that is of material importance to the prospective bidder.    3. A buyer’s premium will be added to the successful bid price and is payable by the purchaser as part of the total purchase price. If paying by cash or check, the purchase price will be the sum of the final bid price plus a buyer’s premium of 17% of the final bid price of each lot up to and including $500,000, 15% of the excess of the final bid price above $500,000, and 12% of the excess of the final bid price above $1,000,000, plus any applicable sales tax, shipping and handling charges. The buyer’s premium is calculated separately for each lot. If paying by credit card, the purchase price will be the sum of the final bid price plus a buyer’s premium of 20% of the final bid price for each lot up to and including $500,000, 18% of the excess of the final bid price above $500,000, and 15% of the excess of the final bid price above $1,000,000, plus any applicable sales tax, shipping and handling charges.   4. Unless exempted by law, the Buyer will be required to pay all applicable state and local sales, gross receipts, and compensation tax. Proof of exemption in the form of a current Non-Taxable Transaction Certificate must be provided at registration. In the event of deliveries outside the state, it is the Purchaser’s responsibility to pay any applicable compensating use tax of another state on the total purchase price. If a buyer requests that artwork be shipped to an address in New York State, we must collect New York sales tax due to an affiliated business located in New York City under recent legislation (Part P-1 of Chapter 57 of the Laws of 2009).   • Why Santa Fe Art Auction Collects Sales Tax: New Mexico requires a seller of goods to register with the New Mexico Department of Taxation and Revenue and collect and remit sales tax if the seller maintains a presence within the state. More specifically, tax laws require an auction house, like Santa Fe Art Auction, with a presence in New Mexico, to register as a sales tax collector, and remit sales tax collected to the state. Unless exempted, New Mexico sales tax is charged on the hammer price, buyer’s premium and any other applicable charges on any property picked up or delivered in New Mexico, regardless of the state or country in which the purchaser resides or does business.    • Certain Exemptions: New Mexico allows for specified exemptions to its sales tax. For example, a registered re-seller such as a registered art dealer may purchase without incurring a tax liability, and Santa Fe Art Auction is not required to collect sales tax from such re-seller.  As sales tax laws vary from state to state, Santa Fe Art Auction recommends that clients with questions regarding the application of sales or use taxes to property purchased at auction seek tax advice from their local tax advisors.    5. The Santa Fe Art Auction reserves the right to withdraw any lot before or during the sale and shall have no liability whatsoever for such withdrawal.    6. Except as may be announced by the auctioneer, all bids are per lot, as numbered in the catalogue.    7. The Santa Fe Art Auction reserves the right to reject any bid. The highest bidder acknowledged by the auctioneer will be the Buyer, subject to reserves. In the event of any dispute between bidders, or in the event of doubt as to the validity of any bid, the auctioneer will have the final discretion to determine the successful bidder, cancel the sale, or reoffer and resell the lot in dispute. If any dispute arises after the sale, the Santa Fe Art Auction’s sale record shall be final and conclusive. The Santa Fe Art Auction, in its 244


discretion, may execute orders or absentee bids as a convenience to clients who are not present at the auction; however, the Santa Fe Art Auction is not responsible for any errors or omissions in connection therewith.   8. If the auctioneer, in his or her discretion, determines that any bid is below the reserve of the lot, he or she may reject the same and withdraw the lot from sale, and, if having acknowledged an opening or other bid, the auctioneer decides that any advance thereafter is insufficient, he or she may reject the advance.   9. On the fall of the auctioneer’s gavel, the highest bidder acknowledged by the auctioneer assumes full risk and responsibility for the offered lot, subject to all of the Terms and Conditions of Sale set forth herein, and is immediately obligated to pay the full purchase price. All sales are final and there shall be no exchanges or returns. Payment shall be made by cash, check or wire transfer. As set forth in paragraph 3, above, for an additional percentage Santa Fe Art Auction will also accept credit cards as a form of payment. (Visa and MasterCard only).    In addition to other remedies available to Santa Fe Art Auction by law, we reserve the right to impose, from the date of sale, a late charge of 1.5% per month (18% per annum) of the total purchase price, if payment is not made in accordance with the conditions set forth herein.    (a) All lots must be removed by the Buyer at his or her expense not later than ten (10) business days following the sale, and, if it is not so removed, (i) a handling charge of 1% of the total purchase price per month, or a portion thereof from the tenth day after the sale (until its removal) will be payable to us by the Buyer, with a minimum of 5% of the total purchase price due for any lot not so removed within 60 days after the sale, and (ii) Santa Fe Art Auction may send the purchased lot to a public warehouse for the account of and at the risk and expense of the Buyer.    (b) If any applicable conditions herein are not complied with by the Buyer, the Buyer will be in default, and in addition to any and all other remedies available to the Santa Fe Art Auction and its agents and consignors by law, including, without limitation, the right to hold the Buyer liable for the total purchase price, together with all fees, charges and expenses set forth in these Terms and Conditions of Sale, the Santa Fe Art Auction, at its sole option, may (i) cancel the sale of that, or any other lot or lots sold to the defaulting Buyer, or (ii) resell the purchased lot or lots, whether at auction or by private sale, or (iii) effect any combination thereof. The Buyer will be liable for any deficiency, any and all costs, handling charges, late charges, expenses and commissions of both sales, legal fees and expenses, collection fees and incidental damages. The Santa Fe Art Auction and its agents and consignors shall have all of the rights accorded to a secured party under the New Mexico Uniform Commercial Code. The Buyer of each lot agrees that each lot is unique and that Santa Fe Art Auction, in its sole discretion, shall not be required to sell or otherwise seek to mitigate damages should such Buyer fail to pay the total purchase price. Payment will not be deemed to have been made in full until the Santa Fe Art Auction shall have collected good funds. The Santa Fe Art Auction reserves the right to hold all purchases pending collection of the total purchase price, together with all additional fees, charges and expenses incurred pursuant to these Terms and Conditions of Sale.    10. All lots (unless otherwise indicated by the letters “nr”) are subject to a reserve, which is the confidential minimum price acceptable to the consignor. The Santa Fe Art Auction, or its agents or consignors, may implement such reserve by opening the bidding or they or either of them may bid up to the amount of the reserve by placing successive or consecutive bids for a lot or may bid in response to other bidders. In instances where the Santa Fe Art Auction has an interest in the lot, it may bid up to the reserve to protect such interest.   11. Santa Fe Art Auction is the owner of images of each lot offered for sale and may use such images for its own archival purposes, as well as for advertising and publicity in connection with this or future sales by the Santa Fe Art Auction.   12. These Terms and Conditions of Sale, together with the parties’ respective rights and obligations hereunder, shall be governed and construed and enforced in accordance with the laws of the State of New Mexico, without regard to New Mexico’s rules concerning conflicts of laws.   13. Prospective bidders, bidders and Buyers agree that, in the event of any controversy or claim arising out of or relating to a sale of any lot, the party asserting such controversy or claim shall provide written notice thereof to the other party; that any such controversy or claim not settled within fourteen (14) days of delivery of notice by the other party, including, without limitation, any controversy or claim arising from, or relating to, the sale of any lot or any of these Terms and Conditions of Sale, including the terms of this paragraph, the sole and exclusive means for resolving the dispute shall be by binding arbitration in Santa Fe, New Mexico. Said arbitration shall be confidential and shall be pursuant to the New Mexico Uniform Arbitration Act, shall be conducted before a single arbitrator, and shall otherwise be guided by the then extant New Mexico Rules of Arbitration. This Agreement is deemed made in Santa Fe, New Mexico, and is subject to the internal substantive law of the State of New Mexico without regard to conflicts of laws. The award of the arbitrator shall be final, and may be entered into any court having jurisdiction thereof. Each party shall bear that party’s own costs of arbitration and attorney’s fees.   14.

19. The Santa Fe Art Auction shall use reasonable efforts to contact prospective buyers who have made prior arrangements to place telephone bids in order for these buyers to participate in the auction. The Santa Fe Art Auction shall not be liable for its failure to contact said bidders or for any errors or omissions made in connection with telephone bids since telephone bids are offered as a free service that is undertaken subject to the other commitments of Santa Fe Art Auction during the sale.    20. Santa Fe Art Auction shall use reasonable efforts to execute online bids in order for online buyers to participate in the auction. Online bidding is provided as an alternative bidding service and should not be considered a replacement for bidding in the room. Santa Fe Art Auction encourages its buyers to weigh the advantages and limitations of live online bidding when deciding whether to bid in the room or online. Santa Fe Art Auction shall not be liable for any errors or omissions made in connection with online bids or the online bidding process. Although Santa Fe Art Auction will do everything in its power to assure all online bids are recognized, Santa Fe Art Auction has no way of guaranteeing that the internet and the online bidding process will be free from technical malfunctions. In the event of a tie between an online bid and a “room” bid, the “room” bid generally will take precedence. “Room” bids include those bids taken from the live auction room(s), telephones, absentee bidders, or bids made by the auctioneer to protect the reserve. Santa Fe Art Auction will not be responsible for errors or failures to execute bids placed on the internet, including, without limitation, errors or failures caused by (i) a loss of connection on Santa Fe Art Auction’s or on the Buyer’s end, (ii) a breakdown or problems with the online bidding software, and/or (iii) a breakdown or problems with a Buyer’s internet connection, computer or system. Santa Fe Art Auction does not accept liability for failing to execute an online internet bid or for errors or omissions in connection with this activity.
