Neal Auction Company is pleased to present property from the Estate of Janice Lane Young (1930-2015) of Richmond, VA. Mrs. Young spent her childhood in Izmir, Turkey where her father was an executive with American Tobacco. She grew up in her family’s historic Psiachi-Lane House (seen below at left) in the Bornova district, which is noted for its handsome Levantine mansions. The family’s roots in Izmir go back to the 19th century when it was the commercial center for transactions between the Ottoman Empire and the West, and her Ralli and Psiachi ancestors, from the well-known Greek merchant families, were prominent in that trade. Adelina Helene Ralli Psiachi (Mrs. Young’s greatgrandmother) is shown at left Her daughter, Marie Adeline Psiachi married American diplomat Rufus W. Lane in 1898, bringing the Psiachi House and its contents as her dowry. Mr. Lane served as U.S. Consul to Izmir from 1898 to 1905. At the outbreak of World War II the young Janice Lane came to Virginia to attend St. Catherine’s School in Richmond. She would marry Armistead Churchill Young III who ran his family’s E.M. Todd Co., famous for their Virginia hams, and spend her adult life in Richmond. This many-layered collection includes fine 19th c. paintings and traditional French antiques and decorations, as well as exotic objets reflecting her family’s history in international trade and diplomacy.

Built between 1847 and 1853 by architect/ builder James Lull for Col. Charles McLaren, Riverview is one of the grandest examples of residential Greek Revival architecture in Mississippi. However, when Dr. and Mrs. John Murfee purchased the house in 1970 it had seen better days. The Murfees undertook an extensive and thoughtful restoration, and brought the same scholarly approach to assembling their collection of appropriate period objects to furnish it. Riverview is on the National Register of Historic Places and is the only National Historic Landmark in Columbus. Riverview, the stately Greek Revival home sited on a bluff above the Tombigbee River showcased the Murfee/DeBardeleben collection of 19th c. furniture, paintings and decorative arts for almost fifty years.

Over the years, Patty Murfee DeBardeleben has generously shared Riverview and its collection by opening it to scholars, preservationists and architecture students.

Neal Auction Company is pleased to offer select objects from the Murfee/DeBardeleben Collection in our 2016 Louisiana Purchase Auction™


Gaspar Cusachs Collection

of Important Historic Louisiana Material Culture

Exhibited by the Louisiana State Museum for over 100 years, The Gaspar Cusachs Collection contains some of Louisiana’s most treasured historical objects. These artifacts were an instrumental part of the early exhibits displayed at the museum and variously remained on view to thousands of museum visitors until early 2016. The collection was originally loaned to the museum by Gaspar Cusachs beginning in 1909 and includes pieces exhibited at the Louisiana Purchase Exposition at the St. Louis World’s Fair in 1904. Gaspar Cusachs (1855-1929) was a successful entrepreneur through business ventures in civil engineering and construction. Cusachs was born in New Orleans in 1855 to a Spanish-born father and a mother of French descent. At the age of five, he was sent to be educated in France and returned home to New Orleans in 1867 when he was 12 years old. After completing his education in Pass Christian, Mississippi, Cusachs went to work in banking for his maternal uncle until 1878, when he became a dealer of building material for the construction of canals in the New Orleans area. During the 1890s, Cusachs’ business achieved considerable success after he spearheaded civil engineering projects in Beaumont, Texas, shortly after oil was discovered in the region. Gaspar Cusachs was active in numerous social and philanthropic organizations and was a member of the Orleans Parish School Board. He had an immense passion for history and served as the seventh president of the Louisiana Historical Society from 1914 until his death in 1929. While president, Cusachs published a number of essays in the Louisiana Historical Quarterly, the society’s quarterly periodical. Cusachs also served on the board and on various committees of the Louisiana State Museum, after it was founded by the Louisiana Historical Society in 1906. Along with his passion for history, Cusachs maintained a vast collection of antiques and historical ephemera. According to historian and former president of the Louisiana Historical Society Alcee Fortier, Cusachs had “one of the most valuable collections of curios to be seen anywhere in the country.” In addition to extremely rare and important objects such as the “Jordan B. Noble Infantry Snare Drum” and the “Andrew Jackson Presentation Flag Celebrating the Victory at the Battle of New Orleans,” offered as lots 111 and 112, Cusachs collected countless swords, pistols, maps, documents, colonial manuscripts, paintings, and an abundance of other unique items from Louisiana’s past, which he generously loaned to the Louisiana State Museum. This important historic collection is being offered in the Friday, December 2 session of Neal Auction’s annual Louisiana Purchase Auction™.

Alexandre Alaux (French/New Orleans, 1851‑1932), “Portrait of Free Woman of Color Wearing a Tignon (previously thought to be Marie Laveau)”, oil on copper, signed mid‑right, 3 3/4 in. x 3 in., period frame. $1500/2500 Note: Alexandre Alaux was born in France, but New Orleans became his home by the time he was just four years old. A talented artist from a young age, Alaux studied with Francois Bernard (1812-1875) and began earning medals and prizes in 1869. An accomplished artist, Alaux was proficient in painting miniatures, landscapes, portraits, and historical paintings. Among the subjects of his portraits, Alaux enjoyed copying earlier works of prominent New Orleans citizens such as Etienne de Boré and Don Andres Almonaster y Roxas. The woman in this miniature, although of unknown identity, presents a fascinating look at a prosperous free woman of color. The mixture of patterns on the fabric of her dress and tignon add an interesting layer of exoticism, while still maintaining the current fashion in western society. Probably self-commissioned as evidenced by the sitter’s apparent control of the manner and style of the painting, the painting includes a tignon to signify the sitter’s racial status; however its bright pattern makes a beautiful complement to her face, and the pose has a sense of refinement and strong sense of self. The sitter’s elaborate jewelry, as well as the fact that she had the means to commission a portrait, indicates that she had both wealth and position in society. Other well-known artists painting portraits of free women of color in Louisiana, just one to two decades earlier, were Jacques Amans and Franz Fleischbein, whose works Alaux undoubtedly had studied.

56. Continental School, early 19th c., probably after an 18th c. miniature, “Bernard‑Xavier‑Philippe de Marigny de Mandeville (1785‑1868)”, oil on canvas, unsigned, 36 in. x 28 in., antique frame. $4000/6000 Ill.: Harter, John Burton and Mary Louise Tucker. The Louisiana Portrait Gallery, Volume 1 to 1870. New Orleans: Louisiana State Museum, 1979, p. 41. Note: Two ineluctable circumstances prove that this portrait is an original work of the 1820s or c. 1830. The first is that this particular subject proudly displays his award—the highest of the recently-restored French royal court—of the Étoile du Saint-Esprit; his father’s tombstone, in the Cathedral of New Orleans (while citing his father’s lesser Order, that of St-Louis) conspicuously omits any mention of this higher Order. The second even more persuasive circumstance is that four early carte-de-visite albumin photographs, made in August 1883 by the New Orleans author/ journalist Edward Clifton Wharton (1827-1891) for Mme. Gustave de Marigny, the daughter-inlaw of this very subject are all clearly labeled by Wharton as “Bernard de Marigny,” with copious biographical notes about him and her. (Gustave de Marigny is noted as Bernard’s son by his first wife, whereas “Col. Marigny de Mandeville is correctly noted on the carte-de-visite photographs as Bernard’s fourth son, by his second wife.) Extrinsic as well as intrinsic features also convincingly tie this portrait to the circle of LouisPhilippe, King of the French (1773-1850, reigned 1830-1848). A year before the death in 1800 of Philippe de Marigny in New Orleans, on the occasion of a French royal visit to America, the Marignys had entertained the Duc d’Orléans and his brothers at their estate near Mandeville; the Duke was then 25 years old, and young Bernard de Marigny was at that point a youth of 14. Their continuing friendship resulted in Bernard’s spending no less than ten years in France, by the direct invitation of the Duke (later the King; hence Bernard’s extraordinary award of the Star of the Holy Spirit, and the notably Royalist cast of this portrait). The motif of the sitter’s hand inserted into the central opening of his uniform of course derives from the well-known use of that pose by Napoleon (First Consul 1799-1804; Emperor 1804-1815), while the golden epaulets demonstrate the high rank that Bernard de Marigny’s royal favor afforded him.

57. Continental School, 19th c., probably after an 18th c. miniature, “Soldier of the Marigny de Mandeville Family, Either Francois‑Philippe (1680‑1728) or His Son, Antoine Philippe (1722‑1779)”, oil on canvas, unsigned, “Louisiana State Museum” label en verso, 36 in. x 29 in., antique frame. $3000/5000 Ill.: Harter, John Burton and Mary Louise Tucker. The Louisiana Portrait Gallery, Volume 1 to 1870. New Orleans: Louisiana State Museum, 1979, pp. 40‑41. Note: This handsome image is a copy on canvas of an untraced engraving, mezzotint, or portrait miniature, possibly executed before 1728, or in 1763, when its possible sitters were probably in France. The first specific record of this present painting is an early albumin carte-de-visite photograph, made in August 1883 by the New Orleans author/ journalist Edward Clifton Wharton (1827-1891), for this portrait’s owner, Mme. Gustave de Marigny [née Bienvenue], the daughter-in-law of Bernard Xavier Philippe de Marigny de Mandeville. As noted on the carte-de-visite, this sitter was “either the father or the grandfather of Bernard Xavier Philippe de Marigny de Mandeville [1785-1868]”. Although in all likelihood, Mme. Gustave de Marigny meant the grandfather or great-grandfather of Bernard Xavier Philippe de Mandeville. Bernard’s “father” would have been Pierre-Philippe Enguerrand de Marigny de Mandeville (1751-1800), while his “grandfather” would have been Antoine-Philippe de Marigny de Mandeville (1722-1779), who was born in Mobile while his own father, Francois-Philippe de Marigny de Mandeville (1680-1728) was in colonial service. AntoinePhilippe was married in New Orleans in 1748, and is successively described as a “Lieutenant of Colonial Troops” in the New Orleans 1762 power of attorney to his wife, preceding his voyage to France. He was also described as “Capitaine de l’infanterie au service de France” on his tombstone, where both he and his father are named as “chevalier[s] de l’ordre royale et militaire de Saint-Louis,” the decoration displayed on this breastplate. Since the highly accurate depiction of this armor is datable to the early 18th c. or just possibly, in retrospect, to 1763, it is likely that the compilers of the 1979 Cabildo catalogue [cited above] were at least partly correct—that this portrait represents either AntoinePhilippe de Marigny de Mandeville, or his father, Francois-Philippe de Marigny de Mandeville.

Note: This painting remains faithful to the pictorial legacy of Nicholas Poussin in a number of ways. The density of its trees and its shadowed foreground, as well as its central temple silhouetted against another castle-topped crag, recall (albeit at a distance of at least several decades) the composition and arrangement of that master’s great painting of 1648, The Ashes of Phocion Collected by His Widow, in the Earl of Derby’s collection at Knowsley. Also proximate is a generic similarity with Poussin’s 1657 Landscape with Diogenes in the Louvre, with its distant town, leafy foreground, and tranquil pools. This picture manifests its later date by its denser, more crowded composition, its more complicated cloudscape, and the episodic narrative implied by its more randomly-placed figures. It seems close enough to Poussin’s painterly character to justify the conclusion that it may be principally indebted to Poussin examples, although influences from later painters such as Gaspard Dughet (1615-1675) may also be detected, particularly in the conspicuously stormy sky, that frequently formed a special feature of Dughet’s landscapes. The intended subject of this impressive painting remains enigmatic due to the deterioration of the legend on the fallen inscription tablet in the right foreground, to which the closest couple gesture meaningfully from their position on the road in the center. That tablet’s fictive inscription was once legible; plausibly it once held the key to this (probably Classical) iconography. 58.

Eugene Louis Lami (1800 -1890), The Battle of New Orleans, 1839, Oil on canvas, Courtesy of the Louisiana State Museum.

Jordan Bankston Noble (1800-1890) was the drummer who beat the call to arms for General Andrew Jackson’s troops at the Battle of New Orleans in 1815, the final battle of the War of 1812. Most recognized for his time on the battlefield as Jackson’s drummer, Noble’s life spanned almost an entire century and he left a legacy as one of the most revered figures of 19th century New Orleans. Noble became an accomplished military drummer through his service in four wars and his frequent performances at battle commemoration events were widely popular. Outside of his rise to fame as a prominent military drummer, Noble was a community leader and an active participant in the fight for equality and citizenship. Born in 1800 as a slave in Georgia, Noble and his mother passed through the slave trade of the American South and landed in New Orleans after being sold to John Noble in 1812. John Noble was a member of the U.S. 7th Infantry Regiment, commanded by General Andrew Jackson, part of the defense of New Orleans against the British. The young Jordan Noble served as the drummer boy of the 7th Infantry and fulfilled the important role of rallying the troops for battle. According to writer Jerry Brock, “With young strong arms, Jordan Noble powerfully alerted the call to arms, the long roll of attack or a quick and definite retreat from fighting.” General Jackson’s forces were ultimately victorious over the British, and Jackson and his men, including Jordan Noble, were proclaimed the new heroes of New Orleans. During the decades following the Battle of New Orleans, Jordan Noble continued his service as a military drummer. Noble served President Andrew Jackson in 1836 during the Second Seminole War as a member of the Louisiana Volunteers. Noble was also the drummer for the Washington Artillery during the Mexican War in 1846, under the command of General Zachary Taylor. After his return to New Orleans following the Mexican War, Noble began regular performances playing his drum at public events. Beloved by the public who knew him as Andrew Jackson’s drummer, Noble had no difficulty drawing a crowd. His performances included yearly Battle of New Orleans commemorations, the dedication of the Andrew Jackson monument in 1856, the Abraham Lincoln Memorial Convention and Emancipation Celebration in 1864, ceremonies held in New Orleans after the death of President James Garfield in 1881, and, at the age of 84, several performances at the 1884 World’s Industrial and Cotton Centennial Exposition in New Orleans.

While Jordan Noble was venerated by the general public for his distinguished military record, he was regarded by the black community as a leader in the movement for racial equality. Noble traveled to Cleveland in 1854 to attend a meeting of the National Emigration of Colored People, where he was elected to serve as the organization’s delegate from Louisiana. During the Civil War, Noble served on the Union side as Captain of Company C of the 7th Regiment of the Louisiana Volunteer Infantry. Near the end of the war, Noble attended the Convention of Colored Men of Louisiana, held in January of 1865 in New Orleans, where he served on a committee alongside prominent black Louisiana political figures, including Oscar J. Dunn, who would later serve as Lieutenant Governor during Reconstruction.

He served under Gen. Jackson, on the plains of Chalmette, and under Gen. Taylor, on the fields of Mexico, and it had been his fortune to have come under immediate observation of those distinguished men, both of whom had taken him by the hand and complimented him for his services, not caring whether his skin was white or black. - “Old Jordan.” The Daily Picayune. October 29, 1855.

After Jordan Noble’s death in 1890, The Daily Picayune ran Noble’s obituary under the headline “Answered the Last Roll: Death of the Drummer Boy of Chalmette.” The obituary detailed the events of Noble’s remarkable life and notably stated that “many will remember the white-headed old man and his well-worn drum.” Along with “The Andrew Jackson Presentation Flag Celebrating the Victory at the Battle of New Orleans” once owned by Noble, the well-worn drum described in the obituary was displayed at the 1904 World’s Fair in St. Louis and at the Louisiana State Museum for over 100 years.

Credited with owning the first outdoor coffee stand in New Orleans, by 1871 Nicaud was listed in the City Directory with a location in the French Market at the corner of Dumaine and Chartres Streets. The current lot depicts Nicaud, wearing a dress, apron, and tignon, serving coffee to three seated customers. A similar scene, titled “Rose, who sells coffee in the French Market,” was published in a book of “New Orleans Characters” by artist Leon Joseph Fremaux (1821-1898) in 1876. According to contemporary descriptions, Nicaud was known to call out “Café Noir!” and “Café au Lait!” to attract customers and was a fixture in the French Market community for over thirty-five years.

Hennessey was shot multiple times by a group of assailants. Before succumbing to his gunshot wounds the following day, Hennessey identified the assailants as a group of Italian men. Public outrage encouraged police to round up any Italians who they felt had a connection to the murder of Hennessey, which led to the arrest of nineteen men. In February and March of 1891, all nineteen Italian men were acquitted due to lack of evidence or mistrial, inciting an outraged public to form a mob. The mob stormed the Orleans Parish prison where they carried out the lynching of eleven of the acquitted men, with little interference from police. According to historians Joseph Maselli and Dominic Candeloro, the incident, which was heavily covered by the national press, introduced terms like “Mafia” and Mafioso” into the popular lexicon of American culture.

Note: This informal portrait shows “le grand Empereur” bareheaded and wearing an ordinary uniform, decorated only with the star of the Sant’Esprit and several lesser ribbons; its sense of majesty and power comes from Gros’ intimate relationship with the sitter and his mastery in the handling of paint. This inspired characterization clearly demonstrates why Gros was recognized as the fountainhead of the Romantic Movement. The almost Leonardesque sfumato, or haziness of outline (especially in the handling of the eyes), the delicate treatment of features and the vivacious coloring, all bring this portrait very close to an ideal of ‘the romantic hero.’ Gros takes full advantage of Napoleon’s youth and vigor to transmit a vision of the perfectibility of state portraiture, even in so private and personal an image as the one offered here. An independent confirmation that the Emperor actually had such an aspect, at the time this picture was painted, is afforded by a full-length portrait by Robert Lefèvre (1755-1830), Napoléon en Costume du Sacre (Napoleon in Coronation Robes), of 1806 [Château de Versailles], and its nearly 40 autograph replicas, extending at least until 1808. The Emperor himself is said to have approved these many versions particularly for their apt likeness; in this picture by Baron Gros, we find the same informal curl of hair across the forehead, the same smoldering gaze, and the same sense of majesty, albeit in a much more relaxed costume. The inscription on the verso (if probably not in Gros’ own handwriting, with which it has slight differences) is at least certainly contemporaneous, as evidenced by the date of 1807, and the degree to which the likeness parallels Lefèvre’s of the same years. The superb frame is almost as important as the painting: its laurel wreaths accurately symbolize military prowess, and the huge sheaf of thunderbolts (modeled on ancient Greek coins of Olympia, Zeus’ sanctuary in Elis) stand for the omnipotence of a monarch who was then at the height of his power and reputation. We are grateful to Professor O’Brien and his colleague at the Château de Versailles for their kind commentaries on this painting. Ref.: O’Brien, David. After the Revolution: Antoine-Jean Gros—Painting and Propaganda Under Napoleon. University Park: Pennsylvania State University Press, 2006. 259. Narcisse Garnier (French, late 18th/early 19th c.), “Portrait de Femme Coifée d’un Turban”, 1810, oil on canvas, signed and dated “fecit 1810” lower right, printed label in French with title and artist identified as “Elève de David [Student of David]” en verso, 25 1/2 in. x 21 in., period gilt frame. $1500/2500 Note: Narcisse Garnier painted in the Neoclassical style, adopting techniques in portraiture similar to those used by his teacher, Jacques-Louis David (1748-1825). Garnier was commissioned to paint both posthumous depictions of historical figures as well as contemporary French aristocrats, such as Baron Carl Mayer von Rothschild. The lovely woman depicted in the current lot wears the height of Empire era fashion. The squareneck dress with short, puffed sleeves and high waistline were all aspects of this famous style. In 1809, stronger colors such as reds and greens came into popularity. The patterned shawl and turban-like headdress here were inspired by clothing worn in India and show an increased interest in the exotic in early 19th century fashion.

261. Charles Camoin (French, 1879‑1965), “Le Jardin de Pigonnet, Aix en Provence”, oil on canvas, signed lower right, pencil‑titled, “M. Gadin, Couleurs et Toiles, Paris” stamp and “Christie’s, New York” labels en verso, 21 1/2 in. x 25 3/4 in., framed with artist and title plaque. $8000/12000 Provenance: In Christie’s, London, Mar. 19, 1991, lot 43; Northgate Gallery, Chattanooga, TN; a Tennessee Collection Note: Charles Camoin was part of the infamous group, along with Henri Matisse, André Derain, and Jean Puy, who exhibited their artwork in the 1905 Salon d’Automne in Paris, where the term “Fauves” was notoriously coined by the shocked and disgusted art critic, Louis Vauxcelles. Vauxcelles, in seeing the bold and strident canvases, declared that they were the works of “wild beasts” or fauves; hence Fauvism was born. Camoin’s ties to Aix-enProvence can be traced back to 1901, when he was stationed there for military service and developed what would be a life-long friendship with Paul Cézanne. In the lot presented here, Camoin’s dedication to the Fauvist style is evident in the thick brushstrokes and simplified forms of the flora in the garden. He enhances the natural vibrancy of the scene by utilizing overly saturated hues. Ref.: “Vit et Oeuvre.” Charles Camoin. www.charlescamoin.com. Accessed Oct. 23, 2016.

Adelina Ralli was the daughter of Adele Wilkinson (1811-1904) and George Ralli (1806-1874). She married John Psiachi (1818-1883), and the couple had a daughter, Marie Louise Psiachi (1868-1937), who married the United States Consul to Turkey, Rufus Walt Lane (1869-1943), in 1898.

293. Martin Rico y Ortega (Spanish, 1833‑1908), “Picnic”, oil on wood panel, signed “Rico” lower right, “M. Knoedler & Co.” label en verso, 11 1/2 in. x 6 1/2 in., framed. $7000/9000 Note: Martin Rico Y Ortega was born in 1833 in Madrid during a time of civil unrest. It is perhaps because of the conflict in Spain and resulting lingering effects that Rico felt drawn towards Paris and, later, Venice to establish himself as a painter. At the Escuela de Bellas Artes de San Fernando, he studied under Jenaro Pérez Villaamil, who himself was highly influenced by the works of English artists such as John Constable. As a result, Rico became quite accomplished at rendering the interplay of light, shadows, sky and clouds. In 1860, he was able to further his artistic studies in Paris, where he became acquainted with Barbizon painters like Charles-Francois Daubigny. Rico’s works certainly reflect the plein-air approach of the Barbizon school, while also including the detailed representation of everyday minutia in the style of the Realists. Later in life, Rico would often return to his native Spain. He would spend time exploring the scenes of once Moorish areas and committing them to canvas. In the painting offered here, Rico captures a picnic outside the walls of an impressive villa. His realistic depiction of the ornate building in the background as well as the shadows cast by the high sun, the attention to color and the meticulous detail are all characteristics of the skilled artist.

Note: Antonio Frilli was a Florentine sculptor who worked primarily with Carrara marble and alabaster. His delicately executed original works and replicas garnered national acclaim, and he was highly sought-after in his lifetime, notably commissioned by Leland Stanford to create several of the impressive statues that decorate the Stanford University Campus. Frilli founded the Frilli Gallery in 1860, as a studio and art atelier in Florence, the capital art city of the Belle Epoque. An astute businessman, Frilli ensured that his gallery participated in many World Fairs, garnering international attention and taking home awards and prizes throughout the year. In 1904, he posthumously won the Grand Prix at the Louisiana Purchase Exposition in St. Louis for his exquisite marble sculpture entitled “Woman Lying on a Hammock,” which showcased his exceptional talent and ability to manipulate a notoriously difficult medium. In this lot, Frilli’s tremendous skills are on display, particularly in the various textures that create the composition. His execution of the coarse fringed textile compared to that of the ringlets of hair and the details of the cabbage leaf crown is remarkable given the challenge inherent in accurately rendering each component. The maiden’s shawl falls open, revealing her left breast, a striking visual reminiscent of Amazonian warriors which lends gravitas to the figure who is being presented in such high esteem.

413. Thomas Addison Richards (British/New York, 1820‑1900), “An Outing; Hudson River Valley Landscape”, 1853, oil on canvas, signed, dated and inscribed “N.Y.” lower center, “A Heydenryk Frame, The House of Heydenryk, New York” label en verso, 48 1/2 in. x 48 1/4 in. (painted circle), framed. $20000/30000 Provenance: Henry B. Holt, Inc., Essex Fells, NJ, Oct. 1982; Private Collection, Louisiana. Exh.: “The Romance of American Landscapes: The Art of Thomas Addison Richards” Georgia Museum of Art, Athens, GA, 1983 and listed in the accompanying catalogue Note: Thomas Addison Richards was born in London and immigrated to America in 1831 with his family, moving first to Hudson, New York, and then to Charleston, South Carolina. Around 1837, they settled in the small town of Penfield, Georgia, the original site of Mercer University, where Richards’s father, a Baptist minister, served as a charter trustee. In 1838, working first from Augusta, Georgia and then Charleston, Richards offered drawing lessons and began to write a series of illustrated travel accounts for which he would eventually earn national fame. His pioneering regard for the splendors of the American landscape, as evidenced in the monumental canvas offered here, was first recognized in an 1843 publication, which noted that his “drawings of the beautiful scenery of the Southern States are almost the first pictures which have been made from this rich store-house of nature.”Late in 1844, Richards settled permanently in New York City, where he gave art lessons from his studio and began taking classes at the National Academy of Design. He subsequently became a full academician and served as the institution’s corresponding secretary from 1852 to 1892. Many of the paintings he regularly contributed to academy exhibitions were romantic landscapes of the South and Hudson River Valley. From his base in New York, he continued to travel, seeking out both views for his brush and his pen. For the weekly Southern Literary Gazette, published by his brother out of Athens, Georgia, and Harper’s New Monthly Magazine (New York), he submitted essays on his travels through the South. Richards enlivened his travelogues with personal anecdotes, legendary stories, tips on lodging, and engravings after his on-site drawings. Tallulah and Jocasse, a collection of Richards’ short stories about the South named for two waterfalls in north Georgia, one being the famed Tallulah Falls, once known as the “Niagara of the South,” was published in 1852, just one year prior to the creation of the work offered here. In 1854, a series of engravings after Richards’s southern sketches appeared in Romance of American Landscape. Richards was painting at the height of his career when he created the panoramic and important landscape offered here. Clearly influenced by his Hudson River School contemporaries, the artist offers a scene that reflects man’s peaceful coexistence with nature and a reverence for the American landscape. The sweeping scene is anchored by the inclusion of a couple with a picnic basket in the foreground, highlighting the expansive countryside beyond them beautifully lit by the setting sun. The exacting brushwork of the foliage and expert composition attest to Richards’ skill at capturing a landscape.During and following the Civil War, Richards increased his teaching activity. He served as the first director of the Cooper Union School of Design for Women in New York, a position he held from 1858 to 1860, and taught at New York University from 1867 to 1887. Richards’ works can be found in the collections of the National Academy of Design, Brooklyn Museum, Harvard Art Museums/Fogg Museum, Morris Museum of Art, Gibbes Museum of Art and Ogden Museum of Southern Art.

Note: Charles Wellington Boyle painted this idyllic Louisiana landscape near his home in Lewisburg, on the north shore of Lake Pontchartrain.

423. Attributed to James Guy Evans (American/New Orleans, 1809‑c. 1859, act. 1835‑1859), “U.S. Treasury Schooner Whig”, 1848, oil on canvas, unsigned and inscribed “Presented to Hon. Henry Clay by his Friend Capt. William Jones” lower margin, “Prepared by Edward Dechaux, New York” canvas stamp en verso, 25 in. x 30 in., period gilt frame. $35000/45000 Exh.: Ashland, The Henry Clay Estate, Lexington, KY, 2003. Note: Biographical information about James Guy Evans has always been scarce. Previously thought to have been born in England in 1810, United States Marine Corps records show that Evans was born in New York in 1809. Evans joined the Marine Corps as a young man and traveled throughout the Mediterranean area, including the island of Minorca, where he married his first wife, Ana. The couple had a son c. 1836 and after a brief stint in Cuba, Evans moved to Mobile, Alabama; two daughters were born c. 1837 and 1839, either in Alabama or Cuba. A Mobile marriage license indicates that Evans married a second time in 1842 to Frances Pennington, and 1850 census records show them living in New Orleans with two more daughters born c. 1843 and 1848 in that city. As a maritime painter, it is not surprising that Evans traveled often between Cuba, Mobile, and New Orleans. Evans established a brief partnership with fellow artist Edward Everard Arnold in New Orleans. He often painted ships at port or arriving in the city at the Balize, an old fort and landmark at the mouth of the Mississippi River, as shown in the two masterworks, “Tow Boat Conqueror of New Orleans, Capt. John Heaton, Coming up from the Balize, October 29th, 1847,” and “Arrival of Gen. Z. Taylor & Staff at Balize on the U. S. Steam Ship Monmouth, B. T. Willse Commander / November 30th 1847,” sold in these rooms in November 2010 and November 2011, respectively. Captain William Jones of Raleigh, North Carolina, an ardent admirer of fellow Whig Henry Clay, disembarked at the Port of New Orleans from Vera Cruz, Mexico in the first half of 1848 on the Schooner Whig. Upon arrival, he commissioned James Guy Evans to paint a likeness of the ship, which Jones then sent as a gift to Henry Clay at his home, Ashland, in Lexington, Kentucky. Clay, a prominent lawyer and politician, helped found the Whig party and exemplified all of its best qualities, which particularly appealed to Captain Jones. The letter accompanying the painting still exists; in it, Jones speaks of his ardent admiration “both personally and politically” of Clay, and praises the ship’s “beauty of model, fleetness, and good sea qualities generally.” In the postscript, Jones proclaims a desire to know Clay’s thoughts about the recent Whig party nomination of Zachary Taylor for presidential candidate. Taylor, popular from his part in defending Texas during the Mexican-American War, won the election in 1848 and became the twelfth president of the United States. Aboard the ship Monmouth, Taylor was also a subject of an Evans painting in 1847. In 2003, when the Whig painting, with its inscription indicating it was a gift to Henry Clay, was re-discovered in Boston, it was revealed that the letter from Jones to Clay, which originally accompanied the painting, was published in a book of Clay’s papers. The painting and the letter (which was in a family collection) were subsequently reunited and exhibited at Ashland, the Henry Clay Estate, in Lexington, Kentucky.

424. Achille Peretti (Italian/New Orleans, 1857‑1923), “Interior at St. John the Baptist Catholic Church”, 1899, oil on canvas, signed and dated lower right, “Artists’ Association of New Orleans” exhibition label with artist and title en verso, 38 in. x 28 1/2 in., period frame. $8000/12000 Note: St. John the Baptist Church’s golden steeple has long been an architectural landmark in New Orleans. Built in the late 1860s and early 1870s, the church’s formal dedication was January 7, 1872. The original structure still stands today. Although the floor plan has not been altered, the interior has undergone several campaigns of restorations. The current lot provides a fascinating view into the original design of the interior. The renowned stained glass, which is now featured in the side windows of the church, had not yet been installed in every window. The stained glass was donated over a course of almost a century – the first donation occurring in 1874 and the last in 1962. In 1963, the church underwent a more extensive renovation and restoration. Unfortunately, the ornate altar featured in this painting was damaged beyond repair by termites and was replaced. In 2002, a renovation took place that saw to the repainting of the interior and the gilding of the column capitals and other details throughout the church. The figures portrayed in the church give the viewer a sense of the Catholic community in the late 19th century. The women depicted are, based on their clothing, fashionable ladies of means, adhering to the latest styles of dresses or blouses and skirts with high necks and long gigot sleeves. Hats with flowers, ribbons, or other decorations were extremely popular during this time period; ladies’ heads would have remained covered in a church during the late 1800s. The inclusion of an African-American woman in the painting indicates that St. John the Baptist Church had an interracial congregation in the 1890s, a circumstance that was more common during the antebellum period than in the later part of the century. Many slaves were baptized and attended the same churches as their owners. After the Civil War, African-American Catholics began forming their own communities. Orders such as the Sisters of the Holy Family, which had been founded in 1842 by Mother Henriette Delille, evangelized and converted both slaves and free persons of color before the war and expanded into full congregations after the war. St. Augustine Church was another community where interracial worship was common. Free black and white people rented approximately the same number of pews, raised funds, and sang in the choir together. Post-Civil War, as more black Catholic communities were formed and money from religious leaders such as Sister Katharine Drexel was donated to those communities, interracial Catholic congregations became less common. Although depictions of exteriors of the beautiful churches of New Orleans are quite common, views of the interior of a house of worship are relatively rare. Peretti, from the time he arrived in New Orleans in 1885 from his native Italy, had an interest in religious art. In addition to painting a number of varied subjects, he also worked decorating churches in Bay St. Louis, Mississippi at Our Lady of the Gulf and in New Orleans at numerous churches, including St. John the Baptist, St. Stephen’s, and St. Patrick’s. Through this fascinating look at a slice of life in the New Orleans Catholic community in the late 1800s, Peretti is able to provide some introspection into both the racial and religious history of the city.

425. Jacques Guillaume Lucien Amans (French/Louisiana, 1801‑1888), “Félicie Aime, Mme. Alfred Roman (1825‑1859)”, oil on canvas, unsigned, 36 1/2 in. x 29 1/4 in., framed. $15000/25000 Provenance: By descent in the family of the sitter. Note: Félicie Aime, the daughter of prominent sugar planter, Valcour Aime, spent her childhood on the plantation officially known as St. James Plantation and widely referred to as “Le Petit Versailles” for its lavishness. The Aime, Fortier, and Roman families were intricately linked through multiple marriages, intertwining the family tree branches, and amassing many properties along the Mississippi River, including Elmwood, Felicity, Oak Alley, and Cabahanoce Plantations. Louisiana artists would often travel to plantation owners’ homes to paint portraits of multiple family members on site. Many of Félicie Aime’s family members, including her father, Valcour Aime, her mother, Josephine Roman Aime, her sister, Félicité, and her cousins, Robert and Jeanne Roman (whose portraits were sold in these rooms in Nov. 2012) had likenesses painted by Amans in the late 1830s. Félicie married her cousin, Alfred Roman (1824-1892) in 1849 in St. James Parish, Louisiana. She died in Paris in 1859, and her portrait was passed down in her sister, Félicité’s family. In 19th century portraits, girls and young women were often depicted in impeccable white gowns, whether indoors or with an outdoor background; the current lot has an almost identical pose and doublepuffed sleeve, off-the-shoulder dress as Amans’ portrait of Clara Mazureau from 1838. In both paintings, Amans’ remarkable brushwork detailing the facial features, hair, and dress of the sitter is beautifully offset by a brilliant blue sky and a low horizon landscape.

Note: Many features of the armoire offered here, including the star inlay, exaggerated skirt, and molded cornice, are related to similar Louisiana armoires conserved by the Judice Family and the Baudouin Collection. The example conserved by the Judice Family was originally used at the Ursuline Convent in New Orleans. Ref.: Furnishing Louisiana: Creole and Acadian Furniture, 1735-1835.

Note: The designer of this chair, Thomas Ustick Walter (1804-1887), architect of the U.S. Capitol, was responsible for the interiors of the House of Representative wing. The chairs were in use from 1857 to 1873, when remodeling resulted in the sale of Walter’s furnishings.

Note: This desk follows a design by Thomas Ustick Walter for the House of Representatives Chamber in use after 1857. Desks in the chamber were of two forms: a two-compartment desk and a single seat desk such as the lot featured here. An illustration of the United States House Chamber in the March 1865 edition of Frank Leslie’s Illustrated News announcing the passage of the 13th Constitutional Amendment abolishing slavery depicts a desk like the one seen here in detail.

461. Everett B.D. Fabrino Julio (St. Helena, 1843‑1879, act. Louisiana, 1870‑1878), “Life along a Louisiana Bayou”, 1877, oil on canvas, signed, dated and inscribed “N.O. LA” lower left, 15 1/4 in. x 30 1/4 in., framed. $100000/150000 Note: Everett B.D.F. Julio created a very small body of work as his life was cut short by illness at the young age of thirty-six. His grand masterpiece, The Last Meeting of Lee & Jackson, earned him fame and recognition during his lifetime. The painting was on almost constant display in New Orleans from 1870 to 1879, either in Julio’s studio or at the Wagner Art Gallery on Camp Street. The monumental painting is currently on view at the Museum of the Confederacy in Richmond, Virginia. In 1873, Julio traveled to France and studied with Leon Bonnat, considered the best colorist of the modern French artists. He returned to New Orleans in 1875, and in addition to painting, he arranged exhibitions of his work and of other artists, such as Richard Clague. The magnificent canvas offered here was painted in 1877, several years after his return to New Orleans. It is an extremely detailed and accomplished composition remarkable for its fine brushwork and accurate depiction of place. A bayou diagonally traverses the composition where two men ply the waterway with a skiff loaded with logs. In the right foreground, a man poles his tented pirogue. All along the left bank of the bayou, various goats and cows populate the scene, many finding shade under the moss-laden live oak tree. Their presence indicates the proximity of a nearby important plantation. All of the lush foliage is finely painted and juxtaposed against a brilliant blue sky. Julio paintings rarely appear on the market and as yet not one with this complexity has ever been found.

462. Andres Molinary (American/New Orleans, 1847‑1915), “Lakefront, New Orleans”, oil on canvas, signed lower left, 8 in. x 14 in., period gilt frame. $15000/25000 Provenance: Previously in the Collection of Martha Ann Samuel, New Orleans, LA.

463. Annie L. Colladay Braidwood (American/Pennsylvania, mid‑19th c.), “Portrait of Andrew Jackson”, 1866, oil on canvas, signed, inscribed “From a Portrait from life / by E.D Marchant at New Orleans / in 1839”, dated and “L. Hausz, Philadelphia” stencil en verso, 24 1/4 in. x 20 in., framed with plaque. $15000/25000 Provenance: Private Collection, Arkansas; Hammer Galleries, New York; Collection of Sam Wyly, Dallas, TX, Private Collection, New Orleans. Note: As noted en verso of the canvas, this portrait of Andrew Jackson was based on a well-known portrait drawn from life of the illustrious Jackson by Edward Dalton Marchant, a former student of Gilbert Stuart. The famous portrait was completed by Marchant in early 1840, upon the occasion of New Orleans hosting a Silver Jubilee for Jackson celebrating his 1815 victory over the British in the Battle of New Orleans. The Marchant portrait was re-discovered in the mid-1990s at the Union League of Philadelphia, after decades spent misattributed to other artists or listed as artist unknown. The artist of the work offered here, Annie Colladay Braidwood graduated from the School of Design for Women in Philadelphia (now Moore College of Art) and studied at the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts. In 1865, she married the principal of the School of Design for Women, Thomas W. Braidwood. One year later, she painted this portrait of Jackson, seventh president of the United States, after the well-known image by Marchant. She perhaps may have seen the original portrait on display in Philadelphia or utilized one of the many miniatures and engravings already completed by other artists after the famous likeness as her inspiration. Braidwood’s skill as a copyist is evident, although her depiction of Jackson softens the features and presents a more approachable, animated visage. As part of a donation on behalf of the School of Design for Women in 1867 to a State Gallery of Art, this painting was placed in the new library room of the Pennsylvania House of Representatives.

464. Antonio Jacobsen (Dutch/American, 1850‑1921), “Schooner Blakely”, 1919, oil on board, signed and dated lower right, “New York Frames & Pictures, N.Y.C.” label en verso, 20 in. x 35 3/4 in., period frame. $7000/10000 Provenance: Descended in the family of Captain Lemuel Alton Scott (1879‑1945). Note: Antonio Jacobsen, known as the most prolific American marine painter, immigrated from his hometown of Copenhagen to New Jersey at just 18 years old. Situated across New York Harbor from Manhattan, Jacobsen had significant access to the ships waiting at port and was known for accuracy in his works. The depiction offered here of the Blakely, a schooner built by the Hall Brothers of Bainbridge Island, WA, incorporates this meticulous attention to minutiae, with detailed rigging and billowing sails. In 1919, the Blakely was purchased and refitted with modern conveniences in Tacoma, WA, by Lemuel Alton Scott. Captain Lemuel Scott worked with his brother, Jewett McLaughlin Scott (1873-1929), for the J.M. Scott & Bros. Company in the Bank of Mobile Building, Mobile, AL. The brothers worked as lumber exporters, shipyard owners, and merchants with alternate locations in New York, NY and Bluefields, Nicaragua. The Scott brothers were born on Cayman Brac, one of the Cayman Islands in the British West Indies. A ship captain, Lemuel Scott moved his family to Mobile, AL in 1912 – the brothers owned many ships such as the Blakely, the Hilbert L. Smith (also offered in this sale), the Salem, and the Mabel Gale. The Scott brothers’ business was a profitable one; ships with their wares sailed throughout the continental United States, Hawaii, South America, the West Indies, and Europe.

474. Jean Joseph Vaudechamp (French, 1790‑1866, act. New Orleans, 1831‑1839), “Portrait of a Lady in a Fur Stole”, 1828, oil on canvas, signed and dated lower left, canvas stencil “Age. Ottoz, Eleve de Mr. Belot, Rue de la Michodiere, Paris, No. 2. A. Paris” and handwritten label “M. Gadon, 1 piece, 73 x 60, de vernis, rectoy (?) restauration vernis” en verso, 28 3/4 in. x 23 1/2 in., period frame. $8000/10000 Note: Before Jean Joseph Vaudechamp traveled to New Orleans, he studied at the École des Beaux-Arts under Anne-Louis Girodet (1767-1824) and established himself as a portrait painter in Paris. Vaudechamp soon made a name for himself depicting wealthy, fashionable citizens of Paris and in 1831, he decided to travel to New Orleans, where portraitists were widely sought after in the Franco-American community. The lady depicted here wears a classic 1830s style dress with an off-the-shoulder neckline, gathered bodice, natural waist, and sheer, puffed sleeves. Her luxurious dress, fur stole, and gold jewelry indicate that she is a woman of the upper class. Vaudechamp applies his flawless technique to depict the woman’s porcelain skin, the different fabrics of the dress, and the short fur of the stole to create a sophisticated portrayal of a prominent French woman. One can clearly see how Vaudechamp subsequently became Louisiana’s most prominent portrait painter. 476.

Ill.: Woodward, William. French Quarter Etchings of Old New Orleans. New Orleans: Franklin Printing Company, 1938, pl. 3. Note: Through his paintings of New Orleans, William Woodward was intent on capturing the French Quarter in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. He depicted street scenes of iconic structures that still exist today, such as St. Louis Cathedral, the French Market, and the Arsenal, as well as private homes and commercial structures, some of which were later lost. Woodward’s intent – to preserve a moment in time of a city that constantly changed and morphed – yielded important and revered works of art such as the one offered here. The current lot depicts 522 and 524 Chartres Street in 1905, the location of the Ibos Brothers Tinsmith and Plumbing Company and a residence. Based on city directory records, Bertrand Firmin Ibos and Joseph Baptiste Ibos owned and operated the Ibos Brothers company on Chartres Street until 1923. In the scene, one can see a horse-drawn cart traveling down Chartres with an “Ibos Bros. – Tin Smiths – 524 Chartres Street” sign on the side while two children stand in the archway of the building. The attention to detail and sensitive use of color attest to Woodward’s skill as an artist and his goal of architectural preservation through his paintings. Later in Woodward’s life, he began a group of etchings based on his sketches and paintings; fifty-four of them form a book printed in 1938, French Quarter Etchings of Old New Orleans. While working on that group of etchings, Woodward meticulously noted the state of the buildings depicted, many of which had changed greatly in the 40 years since he painted them. Of the Ibos Brothers building, he wrote, “This shop and residence at 524 Chartres Street no longer exists. It was probably built in the late 1790s as its site was directly in the path of the great fires of 1788 and 1794 which deprived New Orleans of 1068 houses of the older type of Creole construction.” Ref.: Woodward, William.

Note: Among Salazar’s oeuvre of portraits exist likenesses of some of the most prominent Louisiana citizens of the late 18th and early 19th century. The men and women he painted lived during a fascinating time in Louisiana history, residing first in Spanish Colonial territory during the turn of the 19th century, then observing the transition of the Louisiana Territory from Spain to France, and finally to America with the Louisiana Purchase in 1803. Known Salazar works include paintings of bishops, governors, mayors, military officials, and wealthy planters – most of whom were interconnected through business transactions or familial contacts in the vast web of Colonial Louisiana society. A few of Salazar’s sitters, such as Daniel Coxe, did not reside permanently in the New Orleans area, but visited the region and maintained connections there for many years. Born in Philadelphia in 1769, Daniel William Coxe was the brother of Tench Coxe (1755-1824), a merchant and politician who served as a delegate for Pennsylvania to the Continental Congress. The Coxe brothers descended from prominent colonial families with ties to the Founding Fathers. Their grandfather, Tench Francis, Sr. (d. 1758), an attorney in Pennsylvania, was a founding trustee, along with Benjamin Franklin, for the school that would become the University of Pennsylvania. Their great-grandfather, Dr. Daniel Coxe, Sr. (1640-1730), owned lands granting him the nominal title Colonial Governor of West Jersey, and their grandfather, Daniel Coxe, Jr. (1673-1739), traveled to the colonies and founded the American line of the Coxe family in the New Jersey/Pennsylvania area. As a young man, Daniel Coxe began his career in his brother Tench’s mercantile firm, and by 1791 he was at the firm of Reed & Forde. On an expedition for that firm to the West Indies and New Orleans in 1791-92, certainly the trip where he sat for this portrait, Coxe made the acquaintance of Daniel Clark, a merchant and dignitary with connections to the Spanish government in Colonial Louisiana. Together, Coxe and Clark mapped trade routes from Mexico to Philadelphia through the Caribbean, and back down the American rivers from Philadelphia to New Orleans, providing an exchange of goods that benefited each of the port cities where the ships docked. The two men formed a profitable firm together in 1793, and in 1801 they merged with Beverly Chew and Richard Relf, prominent attorneys and merchants in the city. In 1803, before knowledge of the Louisiana Purchase became public, Coxe and Clark began buying lands in Louisiana and Florida, including a tract of land on the Ouachita River that had been granted to the Marquis de Maison Rouge by Governor Carondelet in 1797. During the years surrounding the Louisiana Purchase a sense of instability encompassed the mercantile trade. The Spanish, who controlled the port of New Orleans, openly traded with the United States but imposed hefty fines and tariffs on goods shipped down the Mississippi River. In 1784, Spain closed New Orleans to trade with the United States, and as a result, discussions between the United States and France were held to attempt to negotiate trade laws with the Spanish. Thomas Pinckney of South Carolina successfully treated with Don Manuel Godoy of Spain to define the boundaries of the United States and Spanish colonies, as well as to obtain navigational rights on the Mississippi River and to remove cargo fees for Americans trading in the port of New Orleans. The Treaty of San Lorenzo, or Pinckney’s Treaty, was a major success for the United States. Coxe and Clark, both of whom benefited greatly from the treaty, are known to have assisted negotiations by gathering intelligence on Spanish trade before the Treaty was ratified and Spanish compliance with the treaty after it came into effect in 1795. Daniel Clark’s ties to the Spanish government were certainly helpful to his mercantile business. However, they also brought him to the periphery of a major United States scandal. Having worked in New Orleans with W.C.C. Claiborne, General James Wilkinson, Pierre Clement de Laussat, and other colonial Louisiana politicians, Clark was in a unique position to observe the behind-the-scenes dealings during the Louisiana Purchase. General Wilkinson’s now well-known treasonous schemes with Aaron Burr to separate from the United States and form an independent union were under dispute in the early 1800s. In an 1809 letter from Clark to Coxe, he mentioned a “pamphlet respecting Wilkinson – Our object is to make known the villainy of that man,” most likely referring to their 1809 publication Proofs of the Corruption of Gen. James Wilkinson, and of his Connexion with Aaron Burr. Although Wilkinson attempted to discredit Clark, the extent of the General’s scheming was not fully realized until historians uncovered more of his personal correspondence after his death, proving Clark’s innocence and Wilkinson’s involvement in many duplicitous activities. After a series of misfortunes and poor investments, Coxe and Clark, whose firm was in great debt, decided to dissolve their partnership. Clark, still working with Chew and Relf, shouldered all of the debts; in exchange, Coxe disavowed any interest in their jointly purchased Louisiana properties. Upon Clark’s death in 1813, he still owed money to multiple creditors, including Coxe. Chew and Relf divided his lands to settle his debts, with Coxe acquiring almost three quarters of the original land grant gifted to the Marquis de Maison Rouge on the Ouachita River. After Daniel Clark’s death, his will was disputed by his daughter, Myra Clark Gaines. Clark’s assets had been left to his mother, Mary Clark, and many legal issues surfaced regarding the vast property he owned. Coxe, Gaines, and Mary Clark, along with the lawyers handling Clark’s estate, Chew and Relf, were involved in multiple lawsuits, including the longest chain of cases in United States History, beginning with W.W. Whitney v. Eleanor O’Bearn, et al, in 1834, and ending with City of New Orleans v. Whitney, in 1891. The case went to the Supreme Court and, although the main participants of the original cases were long deceased, the suit was finally resolved with the City of New Orleans paying just under one million dollars to Gaines’ heirs. One of the most interesting aspects of Salazar’s painting is that its elliptical format is contained within a feigned oval stone molding, in what became known—a full generation after this picture—as the ‘porthole technique.’ Many of Salazar’s contemporaries, such as Charles Willson Peale (1741-1827) and Francis Cotes (1726-1770), applied similar treatments to their portraits. The tromp l’oeil oval serves to highlight the distinguished visage of Daniel Coxe. Salazar’s treatment of the brushwork on the face and the lace at Coxe’s neck and wrists is indicative of his distinctive style, although the inclusion of a natural background is a rarity. The illustrious figure Salazar painted perfectly fits this prominent citizen; Coxe’s contributions to the mercantile trade and his aide in establishing trade routes and securing beneficial trade laws were certainly a boon to the newly established United States and Louisiana Territory.

506. Clementine Hunter (American/Louisiana, 1886‑1988), “Baptism”, oil on paperboard, unsigned, “Eleanor M. Worsley, M.D.” handwritten en verso, 16 in. x 20 in., framed. $5000/8000 Provenance: Estate of Dr. Eleanor M. Worsley, Natchitoches, LA. Ill.: “Melrose Artist To Have Delgado Museum Exhibit”. Natchitoches Times Apr. 29, 1955.

Note: Dr. Eleanor Mendell Worsley (1918-2003), born in New Bedford, Massachusetts, began practicing medicine in Cloutierville in 1945 after graduating from Boston University Medical School and working as a fellow at Charity Hospital in New Orleans. As Natchitoches Parish’s first licensed female physician, Dr. Worsley and her husband lived in the historic Kate Chopin House in Cloutierville for two years, taking over the practice of Dr. Wenk, before moving to Natchitoches where she continued to practice medicine until 1998. Respected for her knowledge and experience and beloved for her dedication, Dr. Worsley treated those who came to her clinic, as well as traveled to rural areas to make charitable house calls to those too sick or too poor to come to her. Patients who were treated by her often commented that Dr. Worsley would accept unconventional forms of payment such as eggs, or even whole chickens. Named one of Louisiana’s Women of the Century in 2000, Dr. Worsley also helped found an Alzheimer’s facility in Natchitoches that now bears her name. Dr. Worsley was Clementine Hunter’s personal physician for many years. The current lot, depicting a church congregation with a baptism performed in the foreground, is an early work; a 1955 article in the Nachitoches Times on Hunter’s Delgado Exhibit of that same year includes a photograph of this painting from Dr. Worsley’s collection. Over the years, Dr. Worsley acquired a lovely collection including some of Hunter’s most iconic scenes of cotton picking, a hospital where Hunter convalesced, laundry day scenes, and the African House at Melrose Plantation.

Theora Hamblett (American/ Mississippi, 1895‑1977), “Girl at the Duck Pond”, 1974, oil on canvas board, signed and dated lower right, 10 in. x 8 in., framed. $7000/10000 Note: Theora Hamblett began her professional career late in life, dismissing the abstract style popular at the time for something more personal and unique. Many of Hamblett’s paintings concentrated on her childhood memories, especially of the chicken farm in Paris MS where she spent her childhood. In nearly all of her landscape paintings, she included animals or people, with the belief that those additions gave life to the scenes. She also painted many landscapes that featured children playing games to evoke a sense of nostalgia. After an accident that broke her hip and required surgery in 1954, she began to paint her dreams and visions, with many of her visions showing religious scenes. The same year, New York gallery owner and famous collector, Betty Parsons, discovered Hamblett’s work and subsequently one of her paintings was included in a 1955 show of new acquisitions at the Museum of Modern Art. In “Girl at the Duck Pond” offered here, the scene showcases two of Hamblett’s hallmarks – pattern and color. Almost obsessively flat areas of color off-set by the equally flat subjects are in drastic contrast to the highly patterned trees. The resulting effect of the foliage evokes movement and accentuates the background, drawing the eye to the key figures of the girl and ducks. Ref.: Wertkin, Gerard, ed. Encyclopedia of American Folk Art. New York, NY: Routledge, 2003, pp. 243-244. “Theora Hamblett.” Greg Thompson Fine Art. www.gregthompsonfineart.com. Accessed Oct. 24, 2016.

514. Knute Heldner (Swedish/New Orleans, 1877‑1952), “Sharecroppers”, 1943, oil on canvas, signed lower right, signed, monogrammed, titled and dated on label en verso of frame, 31 in. x 25 in., original frame. $10000/15000 Provenance: Sold in these rooms Oct. 6, 2007, lot 512. Note: Making his way from Verderslov, Sweden to New Orleans, Knute Heldner had many stops throughout his new country – Boston, Massachusetts, Duluth and Minneapolis, Minnesota, and Washington, D.C. were just some of the cities visited by the artist before he arrived in New Orleans for the first time in the winter of 1923. After their stay in New Orleans, he and his wife, Colette, decided to make it their winter home, spending summers in Duluth. Throughout his travels, Heldner, a religious man by nature, held a variety of jobs including cabin boy, shepherd, woodland guide, dishwasher, and cook in a lumber camp. This variety in employment allowed Heldner to interact with diverse groups of people and experience their hardships. One of his main goals in painting was to attempt to reach people through his art and inspire a reaction connecting the adversity in everyday life with a sense of divine purpose. The idea of finding God through art is not an uncommon one and can be seen in a number of Heldner’s works, both religious and secular. The current lot, depicting a family in a muledrawn cart, the mother nursing a young baby, calls to mind the Biblical story of the Flight to Egypt; framing the plight of the contemporary poor as a modern day Holy Family. Heldner’s lifelong passion for spirituality and social idealism are deeply felt through this empathetic portrait of a working class family.

515. Emily Hamilton Huger (American/Louisiana, 1881‑1946, act. Newcomb College, 1897‑1902), “Evangeline”, 1928, oil on canvas, signed and dated lower left, inscribed “Evangeline painted by Emily H. Huger, Presented by Lionel Jeanmard and Robert L. Mouton, Nov. 10, 1928” en verso, 36 in. x 48 in., framed with artist and title plaque. $10000/15000 Note: Emily Hamilton Huger was a graduate of the Art Department at Newcomb College who went on to study with such art world luminaries as William Merritt Chase, John Connah, and William A. Bell in New . Upon her return to New Orleans, she became a charter member of the Arts & Crafts Club and also belonged to the Art Association of New Orleans and the Southern States Art League among other organizations. Huger was an accomplished painter who embraced impressionism in her depiction of the distinctive Southeastern Louisiana landscape with it’s moss-laden live oak trees. The work offered here depicts Longfellow’s tale of Evangeline, and shows the young woman seated under a large live oak tree. Utilizing a fauvist palette and impressionist brushwork, Huger brings a great deal of energy to the composition. Interestingly, the painting bears a presentation inscription en verso; one of the men, Robert L. Mouton, was a two time mayor of Lafayette and later a member of Congress.

Note: Considered one of the masters of American Impressionist painting, Wilson Henry Irvine was active in art circles in Chicago in the late 19th c. In 1918, he established his permanent residence at the art colony in Old Lyme, CT. Irvine traveled extensively throughout Europe and the United States. He spent part of the winter of 1927-28 painting in New Orleans and informed a journalist the reason was that twenty-five years earlier he had a passion for reading George Washington Cable and never forgot. The reporter noted Irvine “had a mild word of praise for the renovated courts of the quarter, but kept his unstinted encomium for the old grey places where the walls were decaying.” Irvine painted a series of paintings of the courtyards of the Vieux Carré during this visit. The work offered here depicts the Brulatour Courtyard, at the time the home of the Arts & Crafts Club of New Orleans, and one of the best-known courtyards in the French Quarter. Here, the moonlight and its ethereal glow beautifully combine in an atmospheric scene. Ref.: The Item-Tribune New Orleans. Feb. 2, 1928, p. 12.

She was a member of the Artists’ Association of New Orleans and took classes at Newcomb Art School in the summer of 1908. Faure’s rare surviving works attest to her skill with traditional still life, as seen in the sensitive work offered here, and scenes of the Louisiana bayou.

Note: Clarence Millet returned to New Orleans in 1924 after completing studies at the Art Students’ League in New York.

The distinctive architecture of the Vieux Carré lies beyond the garden wall, with the spires of St. Louis Cathedral visible in the background. As is found in Millet’s best paintings, there is an atmospheric quality to his rendering of light and shadow and a sense of the breeze moving through the trees.

George Rodrigue (American/Louisiana, 1944‑2013), “Inferno”, 1992, acrylic on canvas, signed lower right, 30 in. x 24 in., framed. $30000/50000 Note: George Rodrigue first painted the Red Dog in 1990, near the beginning of his transition from the Cajun loup-garou into the Blue Dog, an image that moved well beyond the Cajun ghost story. Often interpreted as the darker, or devilish side, of the Blue Dog, the Red Dog was at that time more of an alter ego. Throughout the early 1990s in particular, paintings of the Red Dog alongside the Blue Dog or alone appeared in the artist’s body of work. As seen in the painting offered here, the black and white version of the dog most closely resembling Rodrigue’s original inspiration, his former studio dog, Tiffany, also occasionally joined the group, making an enigmatic trio and furthering the idea that the dog could have a “split personality.” The often used Rodrigue symbol of candles (presumably representing the three dogs, although most likely also influencing this work’s dramatic title), the looming dark and anthropomorphic trees and a background awash in swirling, intense colors combine for this truly spectacular and mysterious canvas titled “Inferno.” As Rodrigue continued with his explorations of the Blue Dog later in his career, the explanation for dogs in colors other than the famous blue would shift, as the artist made clear with his paintings that he was primarily creating “something that does not have all of the answers, but rather poses questions about life, while at the same time leaving no doubt as to each composition’s deliberate design and George Rodrigue’s passion for and study of color.” Ref.: Rodrigue, Wendy. “Red Dog.” Musings of an Artist’s Wife. www. wendyrodrigue.com.

Most famous for his ongoing series, Desert Cantos, Misrach has captured landscapes for over 40 years, focusing on the human and industrial impact on nature. The artist says of his work: “My own agenda is foregrounding the importance of time in photos, in its infinite number of permutations.” Misrach was commissioned in 1998 by the High Art Museum in Atlanta to produce an exhibit entitled “Picturing the South.” His time in Louisiana consisted of traveling between Baton Rouge and New Orleans in the area known as “Cancer Alley,” documenting the relationship of the local people and the petrochemical industry. Shocked at the environmental conditions he encountered, the artist returned in 2012 to complete a continuation of the series. Referring to the haunting nature of these photos, art critic Jeff Davis used an example of the photograph offered here as the best model of what Misrach was portraying “...the themes of death and pollution at the hands of machinery and the petrochemical industry…” Editions of this print are included in the collections of the Museum of Modern Art, Chicago Art Institute, High Museum of Art, Stanford University Cantor Arts Center and Aperture Gallery New York.

580. American School, early 20th c., “Dressed for the Theatre”, oil on canvas, unsigned, 36 in. x 24 in., framed. $2500/3500 Note: In the intriguing painting offered here, a fashionably-dressed woman is dramatically posed in front of a red wall covered with a trio of playbills, each partially visible in the background. Her vibrant costume, including a spectacularly plumed hat, is indicative of theatre culture in New York City in the 1930s. One playbill perhaps references the 1936 film “The Marriage of Corbal,” a British historical drama set against the backdrop of the French Revolution, while the another hints at the rise of African American theater and playwrights during the Harlem Renaissance.

The playbill on the far right gives references to James Weldon Johnson. Songwriter, poet, novelist, journalist, critic, and autobiographer, Johnson, much like his contemporary W.E.B. Du Bois, was a man who bridged several historical and literary trends. Born in 1871 during the optimism of the Reconstruction period, in Jacksonville, Florida, Johnson possessed an eclectic set of talents. Over the course of his sixty-seven years, Johnson was the first African American admitted to the Florida Bar since the end of Reconstruction; the co-composer in 1900 (with his brother John Rosamond) of ‘Lift Every Voice and Sing,’ the song that would later become known as the Black American National Anthem; field secretary in the NAACP; journalist; publisher; diplomat; educator; translator; librettist; anthologist; and English professor; in addition to being a well-known poet and novelist and one of the prime movers and shakers of the Harlem Renaissance. James and his brother, John, wrote more than 200 songs for the Broadway musical stage.

Davis (1899-2000), singer, songwriter, and two-term Louisiana Governor (1944-48 and 1960-64), c. 1942; to Kenny Gill (aka Walker Kenny Guillot, 1936-2010), world class guitarist inducted into The Louisiana Music Hall of Fame, The Rockabilly Hall of Fame, The North American Country Music Hall of Fame, and The Order of Living Legends, 1980 or 1981; to Earl W. Northrup (1934-2012), proprietor of world famous Earl’s Drive-In and Country Music Park, Chaffee, NY, offering “food for the body, music (including performances by Jimmie Davis) for the soul,” 1992; by descent to his heir and executor, Audie W. Northrup; to Bruce Bartlett, Western Americana collector, author and proprietor of Rio Grande Trading Co., San Antonio, TX, 2013; to Private Collector, Louisiana. Note: Leaving his home in Sweden at age 15 to immigrate to America, Edward Bohlin dreamed of horses, cowboys, and the Wild West. His visions of cowboy life were made a reality as he found work in Montana herding cattle. Finally settling in Cody, Wyoming, Bohlin opened a shop selling saddles and silver accessories of his own creation; the Edward H. Bohlin Company operated from the 1920s to the 1980s. During that time, Bohlin crafted elaborate saddles, in addition to spurs, holsters, buckles, bolos, and various accoutrements. Gaining popularity during the golden age of Hollywood Western films, Bohlin was called upon to outfit celebrities such as Mae West, Hopalong Cassidy, and Ronald Reagan. Before he began his political career, Louisiana Governor James “Jimmie” Davis had gained critical acclaim for his musical skills. Recording many country-western albums in the 1930s and 1940s, Davis also acted in several films, usually playing the part of a singing cowboy with his famous horse, Sunshine. For these roles, Sunshine wore the Bohlin saddle offered here, that Davis had purchased from the wife of Buck Jones, the famous Western movie star. Jones, with more than 160 film credits to his name, used the saddle in many of his roles. This “Louisiana-style” saddle features square skirts, elaborately tooled leather and intricately engraved sterling silver accents with conchos throughout. Born into extreme poverty to sharecropping parents in Beech Springs, Louisiana, Davis valued his education. He graduated from high school in Winnfield, Louisiana and earned his Bachelor’s degree from Louisiana College in Pineville, as well as his Master’s degree from Louisiana State University. In addition to his singing and acting work, he also served as a teacher and court clerk before seeking public office. His most popular song, “You Are My Sunshine,” which was written as an ode to his beloved palomino, was well known by the time Davis ran for Governor of Louisiana in 1944, and he would ride Sunshine, singing the song while campaigning. After a successful first term and a twelve year hiatus, Davis sought the governorship again. Upon winning the general election in 1960, Davis rode Sunshine up the steps of the Louisiana State Capitol, singing his song in victory. Davis’ accomplishments as governor include instituting mandatory licensing for all automobile drivers, building hospitals and roads, repairing infrastructure, and raising teacher salaries. However, it is likely the image of him on Sunshine, wearing a white cowboy hat and singing “You Are My Sunshine” for which Davis is best known. Ref.: Weill, Gus. You Are My Sunshine: the Jimmie Davis Story. Waco, TX: Word Books, 1977.

Eugène Galien‑Laloue (French, 1854‑1941), “Villagers Feeding Fowl beside a Path”, oil on canvas, signed lower left, 12 1/2 in. x 18 1/4 in., framed. $3000/5000 Note: Though mostly known for his gouaches and watercolors of bustling Parisian street scenes, Eugene Galien-Laloue also painted the countryside of Normandy and excelled with oils. Due to the exclusive representation he had with a single gallery, Galien-Laloue would frequently paint in different styles and under different aliases including, “E Galiany,” “J. Lievin,” and “L. Dupuy” in order to sell his works through other vendors. Not one for the outdoors, he often looked to photos and postcards for inspiration for his country scenes. In the oil painting presented here, Galien-Laloue depicts a clear sunny day in rural France with a farmhouse in the distance. While his Parisian scenes are densely packed with details and people, energetic in their compositional complexity, his provincial landscapes are serene, while maintaining the same technical excellence for which he is known.

(6 pcs.) $8000/12000 Note: The six engaging works presented in this lot represent tangible places in Europe as well as several architectural capricci, or imagined scenes, of different famous landmarks. Among the realistic representations are the highly detailed iterations of the El Escorial near Madrid and the Acqua Felice in Rome. Of the capricci, the most striking and telling is the one featuring the Arch of Septimius Severus, which is extensively inscribed in French en verso. The translation reveals detailed, almost studious, descriptions of the architectural elements of the arch as well as historical notes on its origin. While the Church of Santi Luca e Martina is accurately represented to the right of the Arch as it stands in the Roman Forum, the third building in the center background is an imaginative displacement of a Baroque church, possibly the Santa Susanna located northeast of where the other two buildings stand. 604.

The Centennial allowed these firms the opportunity to examine the work of their peers which influenced the design of later pieces.

A chair featuring a similar gilt medallion has been conserved by the Brooklyn Museum in New York City. The distinctive ornamented design of this sofa and armchair has been described as resembling machine works by some scholars and is considered the apogee of Hunzinger’s oeuvre.

Obin is credited as largely responsible for the flowering of Haitian Art since 1945, and he is described by some critics as “the greatest of all Haitian artists. “Obin tried to emulate French classicism in his draftsmanship, resulting in what the critic Selden Rodman referred to as “magical-pseudo realism.” Obin’s style was considerably more subtle than his contemporaries, but one that influenced all northern Haitian artists since he first became a noticed painter in the 1940s. The painting offered here is a scene of a country wedding, evidencing the artist’s subtle use of color to capture the quiet dignity of his countrymen through the his own unique sense of perspective.

Duffaut became known for his paintings of imaginative constructions of mountains dotted with small houses and always referencing the coast. Each of his works, such as the one offered here, are filled with didactic meaning expressing the artist’s moral, philosophical and religious ideals.

850. Andrew LaMar Hopkins (American/New Orleans, 20th c.), “A Typical Day in Antebellum New Orleans”, 2015, acrylic on canvas board, signed and dated lower right, signed, titled, dated and artist’s card en verso, 20 in. x 16 in., framed. $1000/1500 Note: Born in Mobile, AL, Andrew Hopkins’ art is greatly influenced by New Orleans and his love of all things French. Hopkins, an avid student of history, meticulously researches and immaculately executes his historic tableaus of the 18th and 19th centuries, resulting in beautifully rendered architectural interiors with period dress and exacting detail such as the work offered here. Each object included in his composition is period correct and often inspired by items within Hopkins’ own collection of antiques. A person of Creole descent, Hopkins is passionate about his ancestry, and his subjects typically focus on Creole and free people of color in New Orleans. On his paternal side, he is a direct descent of Nicolas Baudin, who obtained a land grant in 1710 for an island south of Mobile, which he named Mon Louis. As a descent of Baudin, Hopkins is related to several French governors of Louisiana. As evidenced in “A Typical Day in Antebellum New Orleans,” Hopkins creates scenes that are both familiar and intriguing. Combining his period subject matter with simple, non-dimensional renderings of people reminiscent of the Early American Primitive School of portrait painters, Hopkins is often compared to artists such as Joshua Johnson and Julien Hudson. However, his contemporary use of color and often whimsical elements imbue his works with a style uniquely his own. Ref.: Cutrone, Lee. “Andrew LaMar Hopkins.” New Orleans Homes & Lifestyles.

947. William Henry Buck (Norwegian/New Orleans, 1840‑1888), “Grain Harvest, Lowlands”, 1878, after Hugh Collins (British, c. 1834‑1896), oil on canvas, signed, dated and inscribed “W.H. Buck after Collins” lower right, 30 in. x 42 in., period gilt frame. $5000/7000 Provenance: Purchased from the artist, descended in the Airey family of New Orleans. According to the family, this painting was commissioned by Thomas Lyon Airey (1837-1894), a New Orleans cotton broker in the late 19th and early 20th century. Airey held several prominent positions in the cotton industry at both the local and the national level; he was a partner in the cotton firm of T.L. Airey & Co. and served as Vice-President of the Louisiana National Bank, twice as President of the New Orleans Cotton Exchange, and as President of the National Cotton Exchange of America, among others. His son, Joseph A. Airey, Sr. (1872-1949) was also a New Orleans cotton broker and lived at 555 Audubon Street. Thomas L. Airey’s daughter, Cecile (1868-1945), married John Milliken Parker (1863-1939), who served as the 37th Governor of Louisiana from 1920-1924. Note: William Henry Buck exhibited his work at the William Seebold Gallery on Canal Street in New Orleans. Seebold, a native of Germany, was active as an art dealer in New Orleans from c. 1865 to 1920. He was one of the foremost art connoisseurs in the city, exhibiting works by local artists as well as many of the top European artists of the day. From 1879 to 1916, almost every notable artist who visited New Orleans dined at his home on Prytania Street. His gallery was a meeting place for Clague, Buck, E.B. Julio and others. Seebold’s gallery and home were the nexus of the art world in late 19th century New Orleans. Buck and his contemporaries certainly benefited from the opportunity to see the many European paintings that Seebold had on offer at his gallery as well as installed in his gracious mansion.

Any such warranty is WAIVED. Regarding works of art, Neal Auction Company does not make any express or implied warranty as to authorship. No statement in the catalogue or elsewhere, orally or in writing, shall be construed as an express or implied warranty, representation or limitation of liability as to authorship. Any such warranty is WAIVED. Buyer agrees and acknowledges that: (a) buyer is not relying on Neal Auction Company’s skill or judgment in selecting to purchase any lot; (b) no oral or written statements in the catalogue of Neal Auction Company or elsewhere regarding condition, attribution, kind, quality, value or authorship are the cause of or reason behind buyer’s purchase of any lot; (c) buyer would have incurred the purchase of any lot regardless of any oral or written statements about condition, attribution, kind, quality, value, or authorship made in the catalogue or elsewhere; (d) Neal Auction Company did not know and could not have known that condition, attribution, kind, quality, expressed value, or authorship is the cause or reason why buyer decides to purchase any lot; (e) buyer’s purchase of any lot is not intended to gratify a nonpecuniary interest; and (f) Neal Auction Company did not know, nor should it have known, that any oral or written statement about a lot in the catalogue or elsewhere would cause a nonpecuniary loss to buyer. Notwithstanding the foregoing WAIVER OF WARRANTY, agreements and acknowledgements, Neal Auction Company may in its sole discretion, but shall not be obligated to, consider any reasonable request for rescission of a sale on the basis of authenticity of authorship of a work of art under the following terms and conditions only, all of which must be met: A. Neal Auction Company shall not grant rescission regarding lots identified by Neal Auction Company by the terms “attributed to,” “school of,” “manner of,” “after,” or “signature of.” B. Neal Auction Company shall not grant rescission regarding any lot unless the buyer notifies Neal Auction Company in writing within 25 calendar days from the date of the auction, and returns the lot to Neal Auction Company in the same condition that the lot was in at the time of sale.

F. In any dispute between Neal Auction Company and buyer regarding authorship of a work of art, it is stipulated that rescission of the sale and refund of the price paid shall be the buyer’s sole recourse or remedy, if any is available, and Neal Auction Company shall not be responsible or obligated for any damages (including compensatory, general, incidental, exemplary or special damages), non-pecuniary losses, costs, expenses, injury, mental anguish, lost profits, attorney’s fees, or any other monetary or injunctive relief. 2.

Jordan Noble and the Battle of New Orleans Shelene Roumillat received her Ph.D. from Tulane University in 2014. Her dissertation was a social and cultural history of the Battle of New Orleans titled “From the ‘Hour of Her Darkest Peril’ to the ‘Brightest Page of Her History’: New Perspectives on the Battle of New Orleans.” Roumillat published an article in Louisiana Cultural Vistas (Winter 2014) titled “The Glorious Eighth of January” for the 200-year anniversary of the Battle of New Orleans.

Presented by Shelene C. Roumillat, Ph.D.

Originally from Charleston, Roumillat moved to New Orleans to attend Tulane University in 2001 and instantly developed an intense passion for the city. Her love of Louisiana history and artistic talents grew simultaneously while in graduate school, and she became active in the local parading and costuming community.
