The Lee B. Anderson Estate Collection Neal Auction Company is pleased to present property from the Lee B. Anderson Estate Collection, a rich and densely layered treasure trove of 19th century furniture, paintings and decorative arts removed from Mr. Anderson’s c. 1855 Manhattan townhouse. Anderson is widely considered one of the foremost collectors of Gothic Revival in America. In The Gothic Revival Style in America, 1830-1870, the seminal 1976 work on the subject, Katherine S. Howe and David B. Warren begin their acknowledgments, “A few lenders deserve special thanks: Lee B. Anderson, who probably knows more about America’s Gothic Revival than anyone else, has shared both his knowledge and his collection with us.” In her 1987 New York Times article “Evocative Gothic: Revival Amid the Gloom,” Patricia Leigh Brown writes that Anderson began his collection of Gothic furniture in the early 1970s, finding it “tranquil and restful” and attracted to its “sculptural quality,” matching his collection of Romantic paintings. In obsession: collectors and their passions, Stephen Callaway describes Anderson, “He had a great eye, even better judgment, and an amount of daring, buying works just before they became fashionable.” The Lee B. Anderson Estate Collection now includes objects that refer to nearly all aspects of material culture from antiquity to early 20th c. aestheticism.

Lots 1 through 222 (Session I) and Lots 781 through 998 (Session II) are sold for the benefit of the Lee B. Anderson Memorial Trust.

Note: The miniature by Ralph E.W. Earl is painted after the 1825 painting of Andrew Jackson by Kentucky artist Aaron H. Corwine. The Corwine portrait was painted in late March, 1825, during Andrew and Rachel Jackson’s four day visit to Cincinnati, Ohio. The Jacksons were making a bittersweet trip home to the Hermitage after his narrow loss for the presidency to John Quincy Adams. The fur collar significantly alluded to Jackson as a westerner and frontiersman. Ralph E.W. Earl, who received continuous requests for images of the Seventh U.S. President and Hero of the Battle of New Orleans, apparently painted a pair of miniatures of Andrew Jackson in 1836; one after Samuel Lovett Waldo’s circa 1819 portrait and the other after Aaron H. Corwine’s 1825 portrait. Both miniatures are of similar size and were placed in matching carved walnut frames.

Hayes into office and ending Reconstruction in the South.  This portrait roundel was most probably created during this time, celebrating Cooper’s third party candidacy against the big political machines of the time and honoring him at age 85 as the oldest party-nominated presidential candidate, a record which still stands today. 107.

School or Follower of Claude Joseph Vernet (French, 1714-1789), “Shipwreck on the South Italian Coast”, grisaille watercolor on laid paper, watermarked with the classic “CCC” of standard Venetian 18th c. paper, unsigned, 13 3/4 in. x 19 in., in a modern mat with attribution, title and size in pencil en verso of mat and again on drawing. $500/700 Provenance: James R.

245. Claude Marion the Younger (French, 18th c.), “A Parisien or Ile-de-France Gateway to a Ducal Property”, 1771, ink, grisaille wash and watercolor on paper watermarked with fleur-de-lis in crowned cartouche, and with countermark of “D & C” Blaum” as papermakers, inscribed “Marion fils en 1771” at lower center, 18 1/2 in. x 26 1/8 in.

Note: This superb drawing is very close to the magnificent 246 “Shipwreck” of 1772 by Vernet at the National Gallery of Art in Washington (acc. no. 2000.22.1.), showing in reverse the same ships at sea and foundering on rocks, the same radiant sun, the same castellated shore, and very similar figures. A sometimes over-regular idiosyncrasy in the draftsmanship, however, suggests that this example is perhaps more likely to be a version of Vernesque elements by a contemporary or even slightly posthumous hand.

$800/1200 W 248. Alfred-Émile-Léopold Stevens

(Belgian, active in France, 1823-1906), “Academy Study of a Male Nude”, 1844, graphite on white paper, signed and dated lower right, 23 5/8 in. x 15 in., float-mounted on an original French mat board inscribed by the artist at lower right “D’aprés Nature atelier [Camille] Roqueplan 1844/AS [in monogram]”. $400/600 Note: It is a truism that in the case of nudes drawn at life classes in studios or at academic institutions, an artist’s mature style is often insufficiently emphasized (in favor of the generic manner endemic to such exercises). The pose of this heavily bearded figure seems to have left a permanent impression on Stevens—who in 1844 was only twenty-one years old. The attitude of this studio model (shown with his posing stick, a step support, and a hint of an isolating sheet set up behind him) is virtually identical with Stevens’ fine full-length ink portrait drawing of Madame Eugène Montrosier, inscribed and dated at Paris in 1878: the only substantive difference between them is that Mme. Montrosier’s right hand is brought up to her chest, to hold a muff. Such a congruence of pose, stretching across more than thirty years, is certainly unusual, and testifies to Stevens’ intense concentration in the rendering of this sheet.

The digits on a Pottier and Stymus example could be penciled, impressed, stenciled, or inscribed in black ink, as seen here.

275

Herron notes that the numbers were probably assigned chronologically, low digits, such as “Ingersoll 3924” on an Egyptian Revival chair at the Metropolitan Museum of Art dates from c. 1870 and a c. 1882 wardrobe at Glenmont is marked with a higher number “Pedder 66595” The inscribed number in ink on this sofa “86694” indicates manufacture between 1883 and 1888. An 1888 fire in the manufactory destroyed the firms’ records, and probably terminated use of the numbers in subsequent work from Pottier and Stymus. Also distinctive of the Pottier and Stymus firm, the client’s name, “Graves” is inscribed on the sofa seen here along with the number.

Exhibited: One World, Two Artists: John Alexander and Walter Anderson, The Walter Anderson Museum of Art, Ocean Springs, MS, 2012. Note: This monumental and highly accomplished Shearwater Pottery bowl exemplifies the true genius and talent of Walter Anderson. Created c. 1945, the design and rendering of the ducks and waves are motifs which appear later in his linocut prints and the watercolors he creates at Horn Island. Rather than a symmetrical, repetitive pattern, the design of the bowl is a continuous varying scene of ducks flying above cresting waves and bubbling water. The rarity of this bowl in terms of its size, beauty, and strong aesthetic should not be understated. It is a truly unique example of Shearwater Pottery and a wonderful masterpiece by Walter Anderson.

(American/New Orleans, 1897-1959), “Saturday Night, French Quarter Cafe”, oil on canvas, signed lower right, 25 in. x 30 in., original painted frame. $15000/25000 Provenance: Acquired from the artist by the current owner, c. 1945. Note: Clarence Millet returned to New Orleans in 1924 after completing studies at the Art Students’ League in New York. His favored subject during this time was the distinctive buildings and street life of the French Quarter. Millet taught night classes at the Arts and Crafts Club where he was a founding member. The painting offered shows a scene Millet may have encountered one evening after class. Demonstrating his skillfulness at depicting light and shadow, the sunset streaked sky barely reveals the rising moon. A group of young men stand under a glowing street lantern while the patrons and illuminated interior of a restaurant are starkly contrasted against the dark evening. This major work is a large and very successful composition distinctly evocative of American Scene painting of this period. It astutely evokes daily life in the historic Vieux Carré with the vegetable seller seated in the doorway and the figure on the balcony under hanging laundry watching the activity on the street below.

A similar drawing by Hobbs is conserved by the Historic New Orleans Collection (acc. 2008).

$3000/5000 Note: Neal Alford Company’s August 30, 1986 on-site sale of the contents of the Sisters of Mercy Convent in Vicksburg, Mississippi featured four American Gothic oak hall chairs, two matching sofas and a hallstand. The chairs and hallstand were identical to those original to Frederick Stanton’s grand antebellum mansion, Stanton Hall, in Natchez, Mississippi. This was the first time furniture matching the Stanton Hall pieces had ever been offered publicly for sale. Two additional chairs by the “Stanton Hall Maker” were sold in these rooms May 28, 1988. One of the chairs from the 1986 Sisters of Mercy sale is now part of the High Museum in Atlanta, Georgia; another is now in the Bybee Collection at the Dallas Museum of Art. Other pieces by the “Stanton Hall Maker” include a sofa found in New Orleans conserved by the Metropolitan Museum of Art; a sofa at the New Orleans Museum of Art; a chair in the Winterthur collection; a chair at Grace Episcopal Church, St. Francisville, Louisiana; and a sofa with New Orleans provenance which sold in these salesrooms as lot 261 on April 5, 2003.

Note: While much of the story of Molly Pitcher is attributed to folklore, the most common narrative details Mary Ludwig Hays earning her famous nickname at the 1778 Revolutionary War Battle of Monmouth in New Jersey. Mary, along with other women, brought water to the soldiers facing not only the British, but the extreme temperatures of June heat. Legend has it that after Molly’s husband was either wounded or suffered heat exhaustion at the height of battle, Molly took his post at the cannon and continued to fight. In this depiction, Molly’s husband lies stricken on the ground as she intently mans the muzzle of the cannon holding the ramrod in defiance of the British attackers. In the upper right, General George Washington surveys the battle and the brave Molly from his mount. Artist Alonzo Chappel enjoyed a successful career in art and illustration. His depictions of American history both before and during his lifetime were reproduced many times in printed form.

408. Robert Brammer (American, 1811-1853, active New Orleans, 1842-1853), “Fishing in Kentucky near Louisville”, 1839, oil on canvas, signed and dated lower middle, 21 3/4 in. x 30 in., period giltwood frame. $8000/12000 Note: Robert Brammer was one of the earliest painters to depict the Southern landscape. Born in Ireland, he first appears in the Louisville, KY city directory of 1838-39 and worked in that city until 1841. In 1842 he opened a studio in New Orleans and worked there, as well as along the Gulf Coast of Mississippi, until his death in 1853. During his time in New Orleans he advertised as a landscape painter, especially of scenery along the American rivers. His fondness for the natural American landscape is evident in the painting offered here. An early work dating to 1839, “Fishing in Kentucky near Louisville” embodies the key characteristics of Brammer’s style of painting: a European influence evident in the detailed rendering of foliage combined with a decidedly American style of landscape with the use of radiant light and contrasting shadow to convey atmosphere. As shown in this painting, Brammer generally composes his landscapes with a body of water framed by trees and topography and a central grouping of two men, one wearing a red jacket, the other a blue one. His clear and honest depiction of the natural landscape was praised during his lifetime in the Daily Orleanian which described his paintings as “the embodiment of true poetry, glowing with all of fervid genius…” and noted that “his blended hues are so perfect” that the viewer is “in doubt whether he is looking on a picture, or an ideal creation, or reality itself.”

408

Despite his acclaim and apparent productivity during his lifetime, very few works by Brammer are known to survive. The painting offered here is a fine example of the artist’s work and has the distinction of being one of the earliest known views of the Kentucky landscape. This painting is listed in the Inventories of American Painting and Sculpture, Smithsonian American Art Museum, with control number IAP 60940337.

Claiborne, New Roads, LA; descended in the family. Note: In mid-19th c. America, still life trompe l’oeil painting was a new style which became popular across the country. “After-the-hunt” images were often the most sought after with nature mortes of wildlife among the first subjects for still life painting in Louisiana. Despite being a skilled and prolific sculptor, Achille Perelli is best known for his highly realistic depictions of game hanging from a nail against a wall. Painted with lifelike intensity and accurate detail, the images of the red snapper and sheepshead fish offered here are vivid examples of his skillful renderings. They are as appealing to the Louisiana sportsman of the present day as they were in the late 19th century.

Note: William Tolliver was a self-taught artist born in Vicksburg, MS. The second oldest of fourteen children, the family was very poor; his mother worked in the cotton fields. Despite their economic disadvantages, his mother was able to nurture his talent. She borrowed art books from the library for him to study the great masters. Tolliver bought watercolor sets from the dime-store and learned to mix and blend colors. Continuing on a course of self-study, Tolliver became skilled in a variety of media. In 1981, he moved to Lafayette with his wife and family and began successfully exhibiting his work at the Live Oak Gallery. He soon began to paint in a new and unique style that has been termed “representational abstract expressionism”. Tolliver believed that art was a means for documenting one’s history. Subsequently themes of rural black southern life are prominent in his work. Two fine examples are offered here, lot 416 and lot 469, each stylized depictions of workers in the cane fields. Unfortunately, Tolliver died at a young age, but not before creating a large body of work that has been critically acclaimed and included in collections of important institutions such as the New Orleans Museum of Art, the Corcoran Gallery, the Zigler Museum of Art and Hampton University Museum among others.

A self-taught artist, Meyers sketched and photographed local buildings to use later as reference material for his paintings. Rendering his works in the preferred medium of acrylic, Meyers once said, “The real art of living, I believe, is blending equally the past, present, and concern for the future. Real art should reflect principle.”

The depiction of Fountain’s Walking Club’s 25th anniversary clearly demonstrates Meyers’ desire to preserve this historic New Orleans event for future generations; it was made into the 25th anniversary poster for the Club. While he had initially taken up the clarinet to help expand his lungs for medical reasons, Fountain soon learned to combine the sounds of his idols, such as Benny Goodman and Irving Fazola, with his own distinct technique. By the late 1950s, he had become a New Orleans legend and opened his own nightclub. In 1961, Fountain began marching informally on Mardi Gras Day with his band; over the years they named themselves the Half Fast Walking Club. The original route began at a tavern on St. Charles Avenue and ended up on Bourbon Street at Pete Fountain’s Night Club. In the 1970s, the parade’s route changed to its present course; it now begins at Commander’s Palace on Washington Avenue and ends at the Hilton Riverside Hotel. The scene in Meyers’ painting depicts Fountain and his walking club concluding their march at Pete Fountain’s Night Club, although the surrounding architecture is fictionalized. The banner carried by a member of the club indicates that this is the 25th anniversary of the Half Fast Walking Club. W 1160. Elaine Forstall (American/Louisiana, b. 1930),

CONDITIONS OF SALE Placing a bid at auction constitutes buyer’s acceptance of and agreement to these Conditions of Sale. 1. WAIVER OF WARRANTY: All lots are sold “AS IS”. No statement regarding condition, kind, value, or quality of a lot, whether made orally at the auction or at any other time, or in writing in this catalogue or elsewhere, shall be construed to be an express or implied warranty, representation, or assumption of liability. 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 a reasonable time 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. C. Neal Auction Company shall not grant rescission regarding any lot unless the buyer presents to Neal Auction Company a written document signed by a recognized art expert acceptable to Neal Auction Company that the lot in question is a forgery. D. Neal Auction Company shall not grant rescission to any person (including but not limited to the original buyer’s heirs, legatees, assigns, transferees, or subsequent purchasers) other than the original buyer, and any rights of the original buyer are not transferrable or assignable. E. Neal Auction Company shall not grant rescission when: (i) there is a conflict of expert opinion as to the authorship; (ii) expert opinion supported authorship at the time of sale, although expert opinion may have changed after the date of sale; and (iii) scientific processes that were unavailable, expensive or impractical at the time of sale have revealed since the time of sale that the author or period Neal Auction Company believed to be accurate at the time of sale was inaccurate. 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. The auctioneer shall have absolute discretion in determining the successful bidder. At the fall of the auctioneer’s hammer, title to the offered lot will pass to the bidder acknowledged by the auctioneer. The bidder thereupon assumes full risk and responsibility and will pay full purchase price for the said lot.

3. The auctioneer may decide that any original bid is not commensurate with the value of the article offered, or that any advance thereafter is not of sufficient amount, he may reject the same. 4. The auctioneer reserves the right to withdraw any item at any time before the sale of the item. 5. No merchandise will be released before the end of the auction. 6. If the buyer fails to comply with any of the conditions of sale, Neal Auction Company reserves the right to hold such defaulting buyer liable for the purchase price; to cancel the sale, retaining as liquidated damages any payment made by the buyer; resell the property without reserve at public auction or privately on seven days’ notice to the buyer or, take such other actions available by law as deemed necessary or appropriate. If Neal Auction Company resells the property, the original defaulting buyer shall be liable for the payment of any deficiency in the purchase price and all costs and expenses, including warehousing, the expenses of both sales, reasonable attorneys’ fees, commissions, incidental damages and all other charges due hereunder.
