Spring

is synonymous with anticipation, isn’t it? The world waits for the snow to melt, the air to warm, the bulbs to

bloom. Here at Eldred’s, we’ve been eagerly anticipating this Spring Sale, our big first auction of 2019. It’s a wonderfully eclectic group of material, from historic 18th Century documents to mid-Century art, from an important Russian sculpture to a rare bird carving. We live in a fast-paced world of instant gratification, where overnight shipping, expedited pick-up of your morning coffee run and immediate responses to emails are the norm. The auction process is the antithesis of that – it takes time to build a sale, then there’s the slow build-up of bidding before the final flurry when an item hits the block. The auction process requires a customer wait a few weeks for a chance to bid and possibly buy something, and then, given the unique nature of that item and its special shipping and handling requirements, it might not be in the customer’s hands for another few weeks. It’s a process replete with anticipation. But the anticipation makes it all the sweeter in the end, just like that first warm spring day after a cold winter. As always, we thank you for anticipating and participating in the auction process. We look forward to seeing you at the Spring Sale! Joshua Eldred President

P.S.: Talk about anticipation – we’re incredibly excited about our summer auction season, which will include an inaugural auction on Nantucket island in July, and two important Marine Art collections! See more about what’s coming up in the back of this catalog.

EIGHT INDEPENDENCE DAY ORATIONS Late 18th and Early 19th Centuries Most delivered in Massachusetts in 1799 or 1800. See a complete list at www.eldreds.com. 200/300

IMPORTANT MASSACHUSETTS PROCLAMATION OF INDEPENDENCE BROADSIDE Dated 1776 “By the Great and General Court of the Colony of Massachusetts Bay. A Proclamation. The Frailty of Human Nature, the Wants of Individuals, and the numerous Dangers which surround them, through the Course of Life, have ... impell’d them to form Societies, and establish Governments. As the Happiness of the People is the sole End of Government, so the Consent of the People is the only Foundation of it ... therefore every Act of Government, every exercise of Sovereignty, against, or without the Consent of the People, is Injustice, Usurpation and Tyranny ...”. With a list of grievances and a call for an independently elected government that doesn’t recognize the sovereignty of the crown, and boldly concluding “God Save the People” instead of “God Save the King”. Written by John Adams and others as the Massachusetts General Court absolved its allegiance to the Crown in January 1776, this was one of the first documents in which Americans championed independence and was a precursor to the Declaration of Independence, drafted with similar language in the following months. Believed to be published by Benjamin Edes, Watertown, Mass., 1776. Dated in print January 23, 1776 and signed in print by Perez Morton, William Cooper, et al. Ordered to be read at the opening of court sessions and at town meetings, and recommended to be read at church services. Though the proclamation was seemingly widely distributed at the time, very few copies are known to still exist. Approx. 17” x 13.75”. 3,000/5,000

“ARTICLES OF CONFEDERATION” 1777 Fully titled “Articles of Confederation and Perpetual Union Between the States of New-Hampshire, Massachusetts-Bay, Rhode Island and Providence Plantations, Connecticut, New York, New-Jersey, Pennsylvania, Delaware, Maryland, Virginia, North-Carolina, South-Carolina and Georgia” (Lancaster, Pennsylvania, Printed; Boston, Re-Printed: John Gill, 1777). This copy contains the thirteen articles adopted by the Continental Congress on November 15, 1777, followed by related excerpts of Congressional minutes from November 17 and 22, 1777, which outline that the Articles of Confederation would be submitted to the individual states for their ratification, and the economic proportions to be paid by states. String-bound with an address to the “Friends and Fellow Countrymen” of MassachusettsBay that answered the objections of individual towns “to be printed in hand bills, one of which to be sent to the Selectmen of each town in this State to be communicated.” With marginalia, including notes such as, “Each State to Pay thare Equel Proportion of Money to have Justice Done them in the End.” Signed on reverse by Jacob Davis, Esquire, possibly Jacob Davis of Charlton, Massachusetts, who served as a Revolutionary War Colonel and helped found Leicester Academy, the second academy incorporated in the state. 16 pp plus an additional 4pp address. 14” x 8.5”. 3,000/5,000 An important part of American history, the Articles of Confederation was the first document to serve as a Constitution for the United States, an important cornerstone in the formation of the Federal government. The document outlined that states would enter into “a firm league of friendship with each other” but maintain their own rights, resulting in a weak central government. Massachusetts would ratify the Articles in March of 1778, though the document was not fully adopted until Maryland ratified it in 1781. By 1786, the ineffectiveness necessitated the creation of a new governing document, resulting in the creation of the United States Constitution.

Recently, however, it regained some popular awareness when lines from the address were used in the song “One Last Time” in the hit Broadway musical “Hamilton”.

Framed 21” x 18”. 3,000/5,000 Provenance: Private Collection, Providence, Rhode Island. D.H. Lawrence, the son of a miner, was a novelist, poet, playwright, essayist, literary critic, and, later in life, a painter. His works were briefly on display at the Warren Gallery in London’s Mayfair, though they were deemed extremely controversial. Police seized 13 of the 25 paintings after a gallery visitor filed a complaint. The works were returned to the artist, on the condition he never show them again in England. Many of his literary contemporaries, including James Joyce, defended Lawrence’s works, hence the note from James Joyce seen here.

Ephemera accompanying the lot, showing the basket on display at Sillman and McNair Associates in the enlarged photograph.

Ruth Asawa began creating sinuous woven wire sculptures in the 1940s, while a student at Black Mountain College in North Carolina. The New York Times quotes her, “I was interested in it because of the economy of a line, making something in space, enclosing it without blocking it out. It's still transparent.”

Sewell Sillman (1924-1992) attended Black Mountain College with Asawa and the two remained friends. When Josef Albers left Black Mountain College, Sillman followed his teacher and mentor to Yale University, earning a B.F.A. in 1951, an M.F.A. in 1953 and remaining on the faculty until 1966. The Ruth Asawa Papers at Green Library, Stanford University also reference the Sillman and McNair Associates show.

immigrants. During World War II she and her family were interred under Executive Order 9066. She was encouraged to pursue her interest in art throughout her childhood. Following graduation from the internment center’s high school, she attended Milwaukee State Teachers College with the intent of becoming an art teacher. While studying in Mexico before her final year of college, Asawa met Albers, who was teaching at Black Mountain College. Asawa studied under Albers from 1946 to 1949. The wire sculptures that she began creating in the 1940s attained prominence in the 1950s, and her work appeared several times at the Whitney Museum. In the next decades her work became increasingly geometric and abstract. Asawa was also a passionate advocate for art education. She served on the National Endowment for the Arts and was the driving force behind the creation of the San Francisco School of the Arts, later renamed in her honor.

HUDSON M. KITCHELL New York/New Jersey/Rhode Island, 1862-1944 Autumn landscape, similar to the work of Ralph Blakelock. Signed lower left “H. Kitchell”. Oil on canvas, 9” x 7” sight. Framed 10.75” x 8.5”. 500/800 Hudson M. Kitchell’s career is entwined with that of master tonalist Ralph A. Blakelock. The two met and worked closely together painting at a mass-production factory in the early 1880s, and some years later Kitchell was accused of forging Blakelocks. Despite the highly publicized scandal and multiple investigations, the accusations against Kitchell were never substantiated. While little is known about Kitchell’s early years or his art education, he was moderately successful with his own work prior to the Depression. In addition to his work as a commercial artist, he also was a paper salesman and an embosser. He lived in obscurity the last years of his life and purportedly died a pauper in Providence, Rhode Island in 1944.

Roger Norman Medearis California/Missouris, 1920-2001 Lot 830

830

An American Regionalist painter, Roger Medearis’s career was largely shaped by one of the style’s masters, Thomas Hart Benton. Medearis met Benton at age 18, when he enrolled in the Kansas City Art Institute in 1938, and he would study under him for the next three years. Medearis’s career was interrupted by World War II, when he took a job with the Navy as a cartographer. After the war he established a studio in Connecticut but became deeply depressed and abandoned his wife and child as well as his artistic career at age 30. He returned to the Midwest and re-married. By the 1960s his artistic passion was re-kindled. In 1966 a Maryland art dealer, Philip Desind, tracked Medearis down with the help of Benton, who referred to him as “his finest pupil in the late 1930s”. Desind became Medearis’s primary dealer and they had a long and productive partnership until the artist’s death in 2001. Painted in 1970, “Missouri Farm” represents a fine and desirable work from the early
