“Life & Legacy” A Special Presentation Honoring George Rodrigue by Wendy Rodrigue

Neal Auction Company is pleased to host “Life & Legacy,” a special presentation honoring one of New Orleans’ most beloved artists, George Rodrigue (1944-2013). For this unique event, Wendy Rodrigue – the artist’s wife, model, muse, and business partner – will examine original paintings from Neal Auction’s upcoming Major Fall Estates Auction (Sept. 15-16) as well as artwork from Rodrigue’s own archives and the couple’s private collection. In 2017, Wendy began a statewide tour in which she shared original artwork and personal insights from her life with George Rodrigue. Originally conceived as a statewide education project focused on arts integration throughout Louisiana A+ Schools, the “Life & Legacy” tour will expand this fall to include schools, museums, and other venues nationwide. Wendy’s blog “Musings of an Artist’s Wife” remains the primary source for biographical information about George Rodrigue and the history of his work. The “Life & Legacy” event will be followed by a signing of Wendy’s book, The Other Side of the Painting (UL Press). Proceeds from the book sales will benefit the arts in education programs of the George Rodrigue Foundation of the Arts.

September 10, 2018 at 5:30 p.m. 4038 Magazine Street, New Orleans, LA Free and Open to the Public. Limited seating. Please RSVP to fineart@nealauction.com.

Note: Known for his sensitively portrayed genre scenes, Victor Gilbert achieved high acclaim in his lifetime for his body of work, eventually receiving the distinctive Chevalier de la Légion d’Honneur title by the French government in 1897. While he remained a realist throughout his career, he was inevitably influenced by Impressionism which is evident in the bright color palette he utilized to capture his views of domestic simplicity.

In this painting, Gilbert depicts a grandmother, seated and reading aloud to a child who is standing in the middle of a shop. The contrast of the youthful versus older figure imbues the work with a sense of nostalgia and provides an added poignancy. The details of the surroundings are faithfully depicted from the overfilled baskets of fruit, the hares hanging from the ceiling, and the fowl lined atop the cage down to the needles of hay on the floor, kicked to the ground no doubt by the rabbit peeking through the bars of its enclosure.

Note: Following the popular Egyptian display at the 1876 Philadelphia Centennial Exposition, the New York firm of Pottier & Stymus began producing Egyptian Revival furniture and became the maker most commonly associated with the style.

Ref.: The Metropolitan Museum of Art. metmuseum.org/art/ collection/search/237. Accessed Aug. 14, 2018; Museum of Fine Arts Boston. mfa.org/collections/object/side‑ chair‑546887.

66. American Rococo Carved Rosewood and Grained Armoire, mid‑19th c., attr. to the workshops of Prudent Mallard, New Orleans, highly carved crest centered by a floral basket over an arched cornice, mirrored ripple‑molded door, lower frieze drawer, disc feet, h. 113 1/2 in., w. 59 1/2 in., d. 25 1/2 in. $7000/10000

Note: The high‑style rosewood armoire offered here is closely related to documented examples attributed to New Orleans cabinetmaker and retailer Prudent Mallard. An armoire in the collection of the Gallier House in New Orleans shares the same overall form, proportions, and large mirrored single door as the armoire in the present lot. This armoire is also directly related to a well‑known bed in Lansdowne Plantation in Natchez, Mississippi, purchased from Mallard in New Orleans, with a similar arched beaded cornice surmounted by a beautifully carved floral basket and winding foliate scroll motif crest. Ref.: Dubrow, Eileen and Richard. American Furniture of the 19th Century: 1840‑1880. Pennsylvania: Schiffer, 1983, p. 151; Lansdowne Plantation. lansdowneplantation.com/ tour.html. Accessed Aug. 14, 2018.

67. Rare American Classical Ormolu‑Mounted Mahogany Pier Table in the French Taste, early 19th c., Boston, marble top, mounted frieze, columnar supports, mirrored back flanked by pilasters, turned tapered feet, h. 37 1/4 in., w. 39 in., d. 15 1/8 in. $1200/1800

Note: Several aspects of the pier table shown here, such as the delicate ormolu mounts, incurvate plinth, and overall proportions, relate closely to pier tables made by Boston cabinetmakers during the American Classical period. A pier table by the Boston firm of Emmons & Archibald in the collection of the Museum of Fine Arts Boston features similar overall proportions, an incurvate plinth, and bulbous‑turned feet. In the tradition of French Empire pier tables, both the table offered here and the MFA Boston example are smaller in size and are distinctively shallow in depth, compared to most American examples.

Note: The elegantly carved and painted cabinets shown here are closely related to French‑influenced furniture made by the New York firm Herter Brothers—most notably the furniture from the firm’s commission for Thurlow Lodge in Menlo Park, California. Originally the William Barron estate, Thurlow Lodge was purchased by gold rush investor and California politician Milton S. Latham in 1871 and the Herter Brothers were chosen to design the mansion’s lavish interiors during the subsequent renovation. Shortly after the renovation began, the mansion burned to its foundation and was completely reconstructed in the French Second Empire style. During the reconstruction, Christian Herter, head of the Herter Brothers firm, had recently returned from Paris and applied the latest Second Empire designs to the opulent rooms of the newly constructed Thurlow Lodge.

The pair of cabinets offered here are similar in style to a cabinet from Thurlow Lodge held in the collection of the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, made by the Herter Brothers for Milton S. Latham. These cabinets also correlate to a crème peinte bedroom suite in the same French taste that was sold by Bonhams in 2015, with provenance to Thurlow Lodge and the Herter Brothers commission.

Note: Wouterus Verschuur, a Dutch artist born in Amsterdam to a jeweler father, became one of the premier animal painters of his time; he was particularly renowned for his depictions of horses. Studying under Pieter Gerardus Van Os, Verschuur was influential in the training of Anton Mauve, as well as his own son, Wouterus Verschuur, Jr. The Van Os School taught many generations of Dutch artists collectively known as the forerunners of the Hague School, and they were particularly well‑versed in the anatomy of sheep, cows, horses, dogs, and other animals. The monumental painting offered here displays Verschuur’s talent with the portrayal of horses in motion. The artist perfectly captures the movement of the rearing horse in the foreground, as well as creating a well‑composed and complex scene including dogs and hunters.

100. Daniel Ridgway‑Knight (American, 1839‑1924), “Gathering Flowers”, oil on canvas, signed and inscribed “Paris” lower left, 32 3/4 in. x 25 7/8 in., framed. $20000/30000 Provenance: Kurt E. Schon, Ltd., New Orleans, LA.

Note: American artist Daniel Ridgway‑Knight was known for his quaint scenes of peasant and provincial women in bucolic settings. Often he painted in a glass studio attached to his property in Poissy, France overlooking the Seine River. This ingenious structure sheltered him from the elements while he observed and faithfully documented models posed within his verdant garden.

In the scene depicted here, the model is perched on a simple wood bench, engrossed in the act of picking a pink rose. She perhaps decided to venture outside for some mending in the sunlight, as she is gingerly holding a stretch of fabric in her right hand with another patterned cloth forgotten on a nearby stool. The hazy horizon and textured grassy foreground is punctuated with pops of deeply saturated flowers which frame the young woman, instilling this everyday sight with a sense of voyeuristic intimacy. With its delicate brushstrokes and romantic setting, this canvas is a poignant example of Ridgway‑Knight’s love for the idyllic life of the French countryside.

Provenance: Sotheby’s New York, Nov. 18, 2010, lot 165.

Note: Innovative and metamorphic tables, such as the table en échelle or “ladder table” in present lot, became prevalent among French furniture styles during the 18th century through pieces made by royal artisans, such as Jean Francois Oeben’s mechanical writing table for Madame du Pompadour, the mistress of King Louis XV. In the late 18th century Louis XVI taste, the table offered here was likely influenced by similar English forms, such as the metamorphic library table designed by Thomas Sheraton in 1793. At first glance, this table appears to be a close match to Sheraton’s design, however, several aspects of the table are distinctively French, including the brass hardware and stop‑fluting along the tapered legs.

109. Jose‑Maria Cundin (Spanish/New Orleans, b. 1938), “Las Visitaciones de Palemon El Estilita”, 1978, oil on canvas, signed and dated lower right, signed, titled and dated en verso, “Covo de longh Gallery” stamp en verso, 60 in. x 50 in., framed. $20000/40000 Provenance: Covo de Iongh Gallery, Houston, TX, 1978.

Note: In “Las Visitaciones de Palemon El Estilita” dating from 1978, Jose‑Maria Cundin uses a soft pastel palette to convey the tale of Palemon the Stylite, the eponymous main character of the poem, “Palemon El Estilita” by Colombian writer, Guillermo Valencia Castillo (1873‑1943). The poem recounts the life of an early Christian hermit who lived atop a granite column. Though he had many followers who would listen to his proselytizing and even bring him food, no amount of beckoning could tear the devout ascetic from the top of his pillar for a number of years.

Cundin’s interpretation of the story showcases an array of Palemon’s visitors vying for space atop the column with him, some even suspended in the air. Using an ethereal pink backdrop, Cundin gives the impression that the column reaches the heavens. Alas, the long distance from Earth proves no respite from the metaphorical secular turbulence depicted on the canvas. The crowded scene delivers a visual feast of sensuous distractions: a man screaming through a blowhorn, a large po‑boy sandwich (likely a humorous nod by the artist to his adopted hometown of New Orleans), animals such as a cat and pig, and a group of loud revelers. All of these characters dominate the composition, yet in the center is Palemon, pious in mid‑sermon, oblivious to the commotion in which he is entrenched. Neal Auction Company would like to thank Jose-Maria and Marion Cundin for their assistance with this catalogue note.

110. Antonio Marti (Spanish/New Orleans, b. 1813), “Portrait of Mme. Felix Grima, neé Marie Sophie Adelaide Montegut (1811‑1876)”, 1852, oil on canvas, signed and inscribed “Hecho por Antonio Marti sordo‑mudo, 1852” lower right, 31 3/4 in. x 25 1/2 in., giltwood frame. $4000/6000 Provenance: Descended in the family of the sitter.

Note: Antonio Marti (also called Antonio Martí i Brach), a native of Barcelona, had a natural affinity for the visual arts from an early age, enrolling at the Escola Llotja (School of Arts in Barcelona) at the age of fifteen and winning multiple prizes over his nine years at the school, despite the fact that he was both deaf and mute. From 1837 to 1840, Marti enrolled in La Escuela de Sordomudos (School of the Deaf and Dumb) in order to overcome his disability and function within the art world as a practicing artist. At the time, his teachers praised his work, noting that after less than a year Marti “knows the idea of a thousand three hundred thirty significant words.” Certainly this education aided Marti’s career in Spain and overseas, including New Orleans, where he is known to have painted at least two portraits, including that of Senora Beltran now in the collection of the Louisiana State Museum. Marti’s beautifully rendered portrait of Adelaide Montegut Grima offered here highlights her beauty, as well as her fashionable 1850s clothing and jewelry. The granddaughter of Dr. Joseph Montegut (whose family was painted by José Francisco Xavier de Salazar y Mendoza), Adelaide Montegut married Felix Grima in 1831. An earlier portrait of Madame Grima and a portrait of her husband, both by Jacques Amans, are illustrated in the Louisiana Portraits book and are now in the Collection of the Hermann‑Grima House, 820 St. Louis Street.

Note: The Comité Marc Chagall has kindly confirmed the authenticity of this work. “Le Luxembourg” captures the intrinsically dream-like qualities of Marc Chagall’s work from a time when themes of love, beauty, and intense personal happiness dominated his canvases. Chagall first trained in his hometown of Vitebsk, and then at the Zvantseva Academy in St. Petersburg under Leon Bakst. Here, Chagall was introduced to the work of artists such as Manet, Monet, Cezanne, and Matisse, which inspired him to move to Paris in 1910 to continue developing his artistic technique. Returning to Vitebsk in 1914 to marry his longtime fiancé, Bella Rosenfeld, Chagall would remain confined to Russia throughout World War I, working as a map maker, theater decorator, and expanding his painting oeuvre to include murals. Determined to begin again in France after the war, in 1923 Chagall collaborated with the French art dealer Ambroise Vollard to create a series of etchings illustrating famous books, including Biblical scenes. During these post-war years, Chagall’s name and works became well-known, and the artist exhibited in France and the United States. Although the rise of fascism in Europe was quickly becoming a threat, Chagall and his family continued living and working in France throughout the 1930s. With the Nazis in Germany on the rise, Chagall was particularly at risk once his works were removed from German museums and included in the “degenerate art” exhibition in Munich in 1937. Ultimately, the Chagalls fled Europe to America in 1941, crossing from France to Spain to Portugal and sailing from Lisbon just days before emigration from Nazi occupied territories was officially banned. In New York, Henri Matisse’s son, Pierre, had a gallery and offered space to Chagall for exhibitions. Chagall was not the only artist in exile from Europe; Fernand Leger, Piet Mondrian, Marcel Duchamp, Jacques Lipchitz, Andre Breton, Alexander Calder, and art historian Meyer Schapiro were all Chagall’s colleagues who had escaped the Nazi regime. Although he enjoyed spending time in the Lower East Side with its large Jewish population, Chagall never felt quite at home in New York and longed for France. Working in New York for only three years, Chagall and his wife, Bella, planned a return to Paris as quickly as possible following the conclusion of the war. Before their departure however, Bella tragically fell ill and died in September of 1944. Following the loss of Bella and dissolution of his subsequent relationship with Virginia Haggard McNeil with whom he finally returned to France, Chagall’s daughter, Ida, introduced him to Valentina “Vava” Brodsky, who became his second wife in July of 1952. Vava, who Chagall called “my joy and my delight,” handled his business affairs, as well as inspired the artist creatively throughout the remainder of his life. The provenance of “Le Luxembourg,” dating from 1953, originates with Vava’s estate, and it was perhaps a beautiful reminder of their early relationship. Chagall’s works from 1953 to 1956 such as “Le Luxembourg” are outstanding examples of the artist’s style and technique from his rare Paris Series and highlight a significant inspiration for Chagall throughout his life - the city of Paris. The paintings from this period are remarkably light-hearted and ethereal, combining Chagall’s ideas of romanticism and spirituality. These paintings depict a sense of starry-eyed youthfulness by employing vibrant colors, vigorous brushstrokes, and imagery of lovers and animals often combined with Parisian monuments. 20

“I thought that only love and uncalculating devotion towards others will lead to the greatest harmony in life and in art of which humanity has been dreaming so long. And this must, of course, be included in each utterance, in each brushstroke, and in each colour.” - Marc Chagall (Baal-Teshuva, p. 208


“Le Luxembourg” is an esquisse or study for the masterful work “Paris entre Deux Rives” also called “Les Deux Fleuves” of 1953-1956, currently held in a private collection. The latter has been recently exhibited at the Museo Thyssen-Bornemisza, Madrid, Spain, 2012; La Piscine de Roubaix, Roubaix, France, 2012 and 2015; the Dallas Museum of Art, 2013; and the Royal Museums of Fine Arts of Belgium, 2015. In the 1960s, “Paris entre Deux Rives” was selected as one of the fifty works included in the Peintures de Paris exhibition at the Musée de Beaux-Arts in Montréal, an impressive group show featuring the works of Pablo Picasso, Fernand Léger, and Georges Braque among others. Designed to highlight the talent of artists from the School of Paris, “Paris entre Deux Rives” was in excellent company. Chagall owned “Paris entre Deux Rives” at the time, and most likely, he was involved in selecting it for the exhibition as the most representative of his Paris Series.

Important for leading to the completion of “Paris entre Deux Rives,” the painting offered here is a significant work in its own right. “Le Luxembourg” provides an intimate glimpse into Chagall’s artistic processes, particularly how he developed his composition and color choices. Multiple pentimenti in both pencil and crayon are visible through the oil layer and reveal the hand of the artist to a great extent. “Le Luxembourg,” much like “Paris entre Deux Rives,” is dominated by the deep, saturated blue of twilight and includes key elements of Chagall’s Paris Series works. Of particular note, Chagall maintained the positioning of the bride, green horse, and crescent moon from this esquisse when completing “Paris entre Deux Rives.” The bouquet of red roses stemming from a vase centers the composition of “Le Luxembourg” and provides additional rich color. First seen in Chagall’s work in the early 1920s, the vase of flowers is often interpreted as a romantic component of his symbolic vocabulary representing his first wife, Bella, and the idyllic state of their union. During subsequent decades, this element remained, perhaps with the added poignancy as a reflection on the fleeting nature of life and as a metaphor for Chagall’s reuniting with Paris. To the right in faint outline, the figure playing a fiddle is reminiscent of the many other such musicians in Chagall’s canvases and is rooted in his deep-seated Jewish, Russian, and Belarusian heritage. Chagall’s first work in his long series of fiddlers was created in 1908. Often the fiddlers are not the main character of the scene, but rather, as depicted in “Le Luxembourg,” an emblematic addition to the composition providing an air of musicality. The instrument for centuries had been tied to Jewish songs filled with a nuanced range of emotion from joy to despair, a duality and complexity that would have appealed to Chagall.

Iconic thematic elements punctuated Chagall’s work throughout his career. Animals, mythical creatures, the circus, lovers, musicians, and scenes of the cities in which he lived appear insistently on his canvases. His oeuvre, which was also inspired by Judaism and Yiddish fairy tales, evolved with elements of mysticism and Biblical allusion that combined toward the end of his life to reflect the artist’s own unique ideas of spirituality. Particularly in the time period of “Le Luxembourg,” Chagall seemed able to achieve in life and in each brushstroke a harmonious coexistence of past and present. “Le Luxembourg” is a romantic and evocative representation unified through the distinctive pictorial symbols present throughout Chagall’s most famous works - a quintessential, classic and powerful painting by the master of European Modernism. 21

169. Marie Atkinson Hull (American/Mississippi, 1890‑1980), “Untitled (Abstract)”, oil on paper, signed lower left, 27 1/2 in. x 22 in., framed. $4000/6000

Note: The gestural brushstrokes and rectangular forms in the painting offered here are a testament to Marie Hull’s evolving style throughout her life. Hull primarily painted portraits and landscapes throughout the 1920s and 1930s. Beginning around 1940, she began to experiment by including flat, interlocking planes of color to interpret her surroundings in Mississippi, inspired by Abstract Expressionism. The title “After the Hurricane” would most likely refer to Hurricane Camille. A particularly intense storm, Camille made landfall in Pass Christian, Mississippi on August 18, 1969. The beautiful, but chaotic shapes in Hull’s painting perfectly portray the aftermath of a storm on the Gulf Coast.

Provenance: Descended in a New Orleans family; thence to the collection of an esteemed New Orleans antiquarian on Chartres Street.

Note: A beautiful seascape in New England, likely near William Woodward’s native Seekonk, Massachusetts, the painting offered here displays the artist’s characteristic Impressionist brushwork and lighting. The reflections of light on the water and the rocky shore are created with patchy brushstrokes of varying colors that come together to create a coastal image with which the artist would have been familiar from his childhood in Massachusetts and his years of study at the Rhode Island School of Design. Woodward, who traveled extensively, often returned to the northeast to paint the landscapes of his youth.

An accompanying document and partial label on the frame mention that this painting was owned by John Ordway, a fellow professor at Tulane University. Ordway was Dean of the Faculty at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology before accepting a position at Tulane as Dean of the School of Technology in 1884; it is understandable that a fellow New Englander would appreciate a seascape depicting his former home. The two professors worked closely together in the Tulane Manual Training School, creating a program that would teach students to be “rounded in art expression – mechanical and architectural as well as artist.” Documentation also notes the inclusion of this painting in an exhibition at the Tennessee Centennial Exposition of 1897. This exposition, which took place to celebrate the 100th anniversary of Tennessee’s statehood, included a full‑scale replica of the Parthenon, which served as the Fine Arts building. The exhibit was so popular that it became a permanent structure and still stands in what is today Nashville’s Centennial Park. Woodward was a great admirer of Expositions, having first become interested in art after visiting the 1876 Philadelphia Centennial Exposition and having exhibited in the 1884 World’s Industrial and Cotton Centennial Exposition in New Orleans and the 1893 World’s Columbian Exposition in Chicago.

In the book, Rodrigue is quoted about this painting: “In My Secret Garden was inspired by my wife, who told me that she has a secret garden—a private sanctuary all her own. As I peer over the wall into her world, I am touched to see that her favorite thing to do is to plant blue flowers for me.” Ref.: Rodrigue, George. Blue Dog Man.

248. George Rodrigue (American/Louisiana, 1944‑2013), “Jolie Blonde Waiting”, 1984, oil on canvas, signed lower right, signed and dated en verso, artist stamp, titled and inscribed on stretcher, 36 in. x 24 in., framed. $25000/35000

Note: According to local legend, in the 1920s a Cajun imprisoned in Port Arthur, Texas wrote a song based on the Cajun legend “Jolie Blonde.” The ballad tells the story of a pretty blonde woman who left her Cajun lover for someone else.   Rodrigue painted Jolie Blonde, meaning “pretty blonde,” more than one hundred times, beginning in 1974 and continuing for the rest of his career. Over the years, he utilized numerous models, placing Jolie Blonde at first in bayou settings and later in more contemporary and even abstract environments. In the work offered here, Rodrigue characteristically makes all elements in the painting hold equal importance, including the oak tree and the shape that its branches form with the sky, perfectly framing the beautiful young woman.  While she is grounded by the bench, the figure is dressed entirely in white and glows against the dark Acadiana landscape. Unusually, Rodrigue chose to reveal Jolie Blonde’s foot, as opposed to covering the feet as typical of his Cajun figures. Interestingly, “Jolie Blonde Waiting” was created in 1984, the year Rodrigue also painted the first Blue Dog. Neal Auction Company would like to thank Wendy Rodrigue for her assistance with this catalogue note.

252. George Rodrigue (American/Louisiana, 1944‑2013), “Louisiana Trail Bridge”, 1971, oil on canvas, signed and dated lower left, signed, titled, dated and artist stamp on stretcher, 18 in. x 24 in., framed. $15000/25000

Note: From 1968 to 1971, George Rodrigue worked to refine his unique vision of Louisiana. The canvas from 1971 offered here is an important window into the development of the twenty‑seven year old artist’s style. Saturated in rich colors, Rodrigue’s bayou is a carefully composed composition dominated by the silhouetted oak tree in the background and the diagonal dark river or coulee in the foreground. The wood trail bridge for which the painting is named melds into the landscape, much like the artist’s later Cajun figures.

By the early 1970s, Rodrigue had begun to receive critical acclaim for his work. The Louisiana State Art Commission sponsored a Rodrigue exhibition at the Louisiana State Museum in the Old State Capitol in Baton Rouge in 1970, featuring seventy oak tree paintings. He also was the subject of a one‑man exhibition at the Beaumont Art Museum, now the Museum of Southeast Texas, which opened to glowing reviews in August of 1971.

255. William Henry Buck (American/New Orleans, 1840‑1888), “Louisiana Bayou Settlement”, 1880, oil on canvas, signed and dated lower right, 9 1/4 in. x 12 3/4 in., period frame with artist plaque. $30000/50000

Provenance: Morris Newman; Jay P. Altmayer Collection, Mobile, AL, c. 1960; Christie’s, New York, Jan. 19, 2017, lot 34. Note: In 1880, William Henry Buck opened his own studio at 26 Carondelet Street in New Orleans, where he was instrumental in defining the easel‑sized landscape market. Dating from the same year, the delightful canvas offered here depicts a picturesque settlement with house and pasture along a Louisiana bayou. The scene includes the artist’s characteristic low horizon line, fluffy white clouds, oak trees and glistening water. The inclusion of the cows and chickens resting peacefully in the field is relatively rare within Buck’s oeuvre, although he clearly shows skill in their depiction. Perhaps at his best when working in an intimate scale, Buck’s brushwork is exceptionally well‑ rendered and captures the most minute details of the foliage, house and animals. Once included in the collection of the renowned Jay P. Altmayer at Palmetto Hall in Mobile, Alabama, this gem is among Buck’s finest work.

Provenance: Merce Cunningham and John Cage Collection; McCormick Gallery, Chicago, IL, 2010. Note: This exquisite painting by Fritz Bultman was in the esteemed collection of Merce Cunningham and John Cage. Cunningham is widely considered one of the most influential choreographers of all time, as well as being an accomplished dancer who founded the Merce Cunningham Dance Company at Black Mountain College. He worked frequently with his partner, John Cage, a world‑renowned music theorist and one of the leading American composers of the twentieth century. Together, they amassed an impressive art collection including works by their contemporaries such as Jasper Johns, Robert Rauschenberg, Philip Guston, and Fritz Bultman. The painting offered here is entitled “Prytania,” and like many of Bultman’s works, the canvas was inspired by his hometown of New Orleans. Layers of ochre pigment cover portions of the board, harmoniously co‑mingling with bright colors such as coral, rose and rich green. The overall effect is that of a humid, spring day in New Orleans, perhaps on the very street for which the canvas is named. Ref.: Vogal, Carol. “Art Among Friends Is Up For Sale.” The New York Times.

304. George Rodrigue (American/ Louisiana, 1944‑2013), “Untitled (Bayou Scene with Sugar Kettle and Cabin)”, 1996, oil on canvas, signed lower left, artist stamp and inscribed en verso, 24 in. x 30 in., framed. $20000/30000

Note: Around the time of the painting offered here, George Rodrigue acquired a sugar pot (as he called them) for his front yard in Lafayette, which he converted into a fish pond with fountain. The artist had a longstanding fascination for sugar kettles, so perhaps not surprisingly, the image of one made an appearance on this rare canvas. Created in 1996, this classic Rodrigue landscape harkens to the artist’s earliest series of paintings with his iconic dark oaks and high horizon line. The palette is key to the later date however, as Rodrigue increasingly imbued his landscape with vibrant color. The bright blue of the sky is reminiscent of the Blue Dog series, and the unusual red brick supports beneath the cabin punctuate the dark ground. Neal Auction Company would like to thank Wendy Rodrigue for her assistance with this catalogue note.

307. Attributed to William S. Robinson (American/Mississippi, 1861‑1945), “Ships in a Harbor”, oil on canvas, unsigned, 11 in. x 12 in., framed. $2000/3000 Provenance: Descended in the family of William Woodward.

Note: William S. Robinson and William Woodward met early in life, when both were students at the Massachusetts Normal Art School in Boston, and they remained friends throughout their lives. Robinson’s favorite locale to paint was Old Lyme, Connecticut, and he lived there for the majority of his life. However, when the patron of the Lyme Art Colony, Florence Griswold, died in 1937, Robinson decided to move to Biloxi, Mississippi, where he had previously visited Woodward and his family. Robinson was well-known for his acclaimed landscapes and seascapes in New England. In the work offered here, the shapes created by the multiple boats at shore provide an interesting, almost abstract composition with the tangle of masts, sails, and ropes in the upper portion of the canvas. Woodward, who also painted seascapes and boats, clearly admired this work of Robinson’s, and it descended in the Woodward family collection.

Note: Working in the Pennsylvania, New Jersey, and Rhode Island area, William Trost Richards was best known for his coastal scenes, which included the crashing waves and cloudy skies of New England seascapes. Richards also admired the American landscape, and he worked to hone his technique in realism, rather than the more romanticized style of the Hudson River School painters.

The painting on offer here brings together marine and landscape painting in one monumental canvas with a rocky shore in the foreground, finely painted asymmetrical outcropping of rocks on the right, schooner in the background, and distant mountains. Soft sunlight illuminates the mountainside with delicate hues, gently kissing the edges of the rock formations and resulting in a dramatic, spiritual scene that envelopes the viewer. The white meringue‑like peaks in the far distance paired with the small scale of the boat sailing along the horizon underscore the immensity of the view and evoke a sense of grandeur. 313.

320. François‑Adolphe Grison (French, 1845‑1914) and Gaston Gilbert Daniel Save (French, 1844‑1901), “The Tavern”, 1874, oil on canvas, signed and dated lower right, “Kurt E. Schon, Ltd., New Orleans” label with artist and title on stretcher, 111 1/4 in. x 62 7/8 in., framed. $15000/25000 Provenance: Private Collection; Kurt E. Schon, Ltd., New Orleans, LA.

Note: Gaston Save, who had attended the Ecole des Beaux-Arts in Paris, exhibited in the Salon of 1870 and won a bronze medal. Passionate about history, politics, and theater, Save often created illustrations for magazines as well as collaborating on large-scale wall decorations and theater sets. Adolphe Grison, who had exhibited at the Paris Salon in 1873, was a well-known genre scene painter. The two artists collaborated to create the cheerful late 18th century tavern scene offered here. This immense canvas is a feast for the eyes. Splendor and frivolity abound as each square inch offers new details to be discovered. The foreground is framed with meticulously rendered flora and an abandoned game of lawn bowling. At the center of the canvas, a young child and man with a hurdy-gurdy play for a group of sumptuously-dressed and well-coiffed ladies and gentlemen, while the tavern owner and a comely maiden fetch mid-day drinks. In the background, a teeming crowd enjoys a festival on a bright summer day, and one can almost hear the revelry. The impressive verticality of the canvas topped with a carved arch makes the work a dramatic architectural feat as well as an artistic one.

Renowned for the interiors of the great palaces in Potsdam and Berlin under Frederick the Great, Hoppenhaupt’s Rococo style emulated the grandeur of the French court under Louis XV, while maintaining a distinctively German eccentricity through the use of exaggerated proportions and bold polychrome paint decoration.

Accessed August 16, 2018.

Note: According to the Sotheby’s Noblesse Oblige catalogue, by family tradition, the elaborately inlaid games table in the present lot belonged to August, Count Neidhardt von Gneisenau (1760-1831), a Prussian field marshal who was one of the key figures in rebuilding the Prussian army after its defeat by Napoleon in 1806. A brilliant military strategist, Gneisenau’s successes won him praise by Tsar Alexander I of Russia, Emperor Franz of Austria, and King Friedrich Wilhelm III of Prussia. As the chief of staff to Gebhard Leberecht von Blücher, Gneisenau aided in Napoleon’s eventual defeat at Waterloo in 1815.

In 1753, Hoppenhaupt published a series of designs that are linked to furniture from the palaces at Potsdam, including a gilt-gesso commode from the bedroom of Frederick the Great at Sanssouci, nearly identical in form to the commode in the present lot.

351. School of Charles‑Balthazar‑Julien‑Févret de Saint‑Mémin (French/American, 1770‑1852), “Profile Portraits of Judge Hugh Nelson and Eliza Kinloch Nelson”, 19th c., 2 multi-colored chalks on woven beige paper, unsigned, full identifications on handwritten ink labels en verso of backing boards, sights 20 3/4 in. x 14 3/4 in., black-and-gilt-decorated verre églomisé mats in matching frames. (2 pcs.) $3000/5000 Provenance: Neal Auction, Sept. 13, 2014, lot 235.

Note: These fine drawings are a reprise of Saint-Mémin’s typical style, on lightly-tinted paper, at precisely his standard size; they are displayed in black-painted and gilt-decorated glass mats very similar to the originals in the State Department. The inscription labels found here en verso, evidently of the 19th c.—together with Saint-Mémin’s standard small circular engraving at the National Portrait Gallery in Washington, labeled in the artist’s own hand, “Nelson 1808” – tell us that Mr. and Mrs. Nelson—then respectively 40 and 27 years old—sat for Saint-Mémin (using his famous technique of the ‘physiognotrace’) in Richmond, during his sojourn there from early July of 1807 to April or early May of 1808.

Hugh Nelson (1768-1836) was born in Yorktown and studied law at the College of William and Mary at Williamsburg. Nelson was a younger associate of Thomas Jefferson’s; the latter’s father, dying in 1757 when Jefferson was only 14, had appointed as his executor, and as his son’s guardian, the eminent physician and statesman Dr. Thomas Walker (1715-1794), whose son John was Jefferson’s classmate. John Walker (1744-1809), only one year younger than Jefferson and perhaps his closest friend, also attended William and Mary with him, and made Jefferson one of the groomsmen at his marriage in 1764 to Elizabeth Moore. The Walkers’ only daughter Mildred was married in 1781 to a young Congressman from South Carolina, Francis Kinloch of Charleston. That couple had only one daughter, Eliza; she was almost the same age as Jefferson’s own daughters, and given Jefferson’s closeness to both the Nelson family and especially his neighbors and close friends the Walkers, it is hardly surprising that Hugh Nelson in fact married Eliza Kinloch in 1799.

350. Petrus Pieter Gerardus Vertin (Dutch, 1819‑1893), “Snowy Street Scene” and “Street Scene with Wheelbarrow”, 2 oils on panel, signed lower left and right respectively, each 7 1/2 in. x 5 3/4 in., framed alike. (2 pcs.) $2000/3000

Hugh and Eliza (the subjects of these two drawings) moved permanently to Albemarle County in 1802, and on the deaths of both her parents in 1809, she and her husband inherited their estate, “Belvoir,” where they raised their ten children. Hugh Nelson represented his county in the Virginia Assembly from 1805 to 1809, while also being a magistrate in the state’s General Court; in 1811 he was elected to the U. S. Congress, in which he served for a dozen years. He resigned that position in 1823 to accept his friend James Monroe’s appointment as minister plenipotentiary to the Court of Spain, where he remained until 1825. Throughout his years of public service, he stayed in close touch with Thomas Jefferson, until the latter’s death in 1826; a large selection of Nelson correspondence is preserved in the Library of Congress. Hugh Nelson served a final brief term in the Virginia House of Delegates in 1828-29; he also participated on several occasions in the General Convention of the Protestant Episcopal Church in America. He was, perhaps, principally celebrated for his extraordinary recall—mainly deriving from his long friendship with Jefferson and his intimate contact with Monroe—about the lives of the Founding Fathers.
