The Collection of David and Pamela Harmon, Everhope Plantation, Eutaw, Alabama This historic plantation house was built in 1853 for Nathan Carpenter, who had served with the Eutaw Rangers in the Mexican-American War, and later served as captain of the Confederate Rangers (Company B of the 36th Regiment, Alabama Infantry). The house was known as the Captain Nathan Carpenter House for many years. The Harmons, antiquarians and avid preservationists, purchased the property in 2005 and restored it to its present state, renaming it Everhope Plantation, and filling it with beautiful period objects. Everhope is now on the National Register of Historic Places. Neal Auction Company is pleased to present the entire contents of Everhope Plantation.


Joseph A. Davenport III Joseph A. Davenport III (1937-2010) was a Mer Rouge, Louisiana planter and businessman whose family roots in the area go back to the 1806 arrival of Captain Josiah Davenport in what was then known as Prairie Mer Rouge in Orleans Territory.

An avid collector with discriminating taste, Joe Davenport selected antique furniture, paintings and decorations from exclusive purveyors over several decades, creating an elegant home and garden in his family’s historic Southern setting. Neal Auction Company is pleased to offer the Davenport Estate Collection.


The Barrow/Brandon/Bedgood House at Greenwood Plantation, Pinckneyville, MS Greenwood Plantation has been in the same family since its acquisition by a Spanish land grant of 1790; the earliest part of the house itself dates to 1792. Notable family members include Gerard Chittocque Brandon (17881850), the first native Mississippian to be elected governor, and Confederate General William L. Brandon (1801-1890). Closely allied plantations in Wilkinson County, Mississippi and the adjoining Feliciana Parishes of Louisiana include Arcole, Columbian Springs, Desert, Cold Spring, Richland, Highland and Como.

The Barrow/Brandon/Bedgood Collection represents a layering of material culture by many generations of this important early family. When Pierrine Bedgood, an amateur historian and avid genealogist, returned to the family home in 1974, she studied and catalogued the collection. In 1992, in celebration of the 200 year history of Greenwood Plantation, Mrs. Bedgood organized the exhibit, “Brandons, Barrows and Bedgoods�, presented at the Wilkinson County Museum. Greenwood Plantation will be prominently featured in the forthcoming History of the Plantations of Wilkinson County by Stella Pitts and Ernesto Caldeira. Neal Auction Company would like to thank the authors for sharing their research. Neal Auction Company is pleased to offer Part I from this historic family collection. Ref. Floyd, William Barrow.

Sir John Edward Poynter, P. R. A.

58

$800/1200 Provenance: Colnaghi’s, London, 1961; James R. Lamantia, New Orleans and New York. Note: This drawing is inscribed on the mount “Study of ‘Thrown’ Drapery—painting Captive Andromache.” But the very famous painting of Captive Andromache (the widowed wife of Prince Hector of Troy) is not actually by Poynter, who is certainly the author of this stunning sheet. It is rather the acknowledged masterpiece of Frederic, Lord Leighton (1830-1896): it was painted in 1888, and is now at the Manchester City Art Gallery. More than a decade and a half earlier—in 1872/79—the increasingly prominent Poynter (though the younger of the two artists, and already deeply influenced by those of Leighton’s paintings which he had seen in Rome in 1853-54) had been commissioned by Edward Montagu Stuart Granville, 3rd Baron and 1st Earl of Wharncliffe, to produce four large canvases to decorate his billiard room at Wortley Hall in Yorkshire (all now unfortunately destroyed). One of these is Medievalizing in content, but the other three are classical; and it must have been the Perseus Rescuing Andromeda (of 1872) among these, to which a member of Colnaghi’s evidently meant to refer—apparently only orally—when he told Lamantia the origin of this splendid sheet. Those classical paintings for Wortley Hall did in fact incorporate the actively fluttering draperies and frieze-like arrangements of Leighton’s mature works (prefiguring those of the latter’s confusingly-named Andromache of sixteen years later); and indeed the windy sea-coast setting of Poynter’s lost Andromeda is in actual fact more likely as a context for this drawing’s magisterial wind-blown swirl than the elegiac quietness of Leighton’s great painting of 1888. In any event, the Wortley paintings did earn for Poynter his election as a member of the Royal Academy in 1876; he became Director of the National Gallery from 1894 to 1904, and President of the R. A. from 1896 to 1918. He was also knighted in 1896, and created a baronet in 1902; he is buried in St. Paul’s Cathedral.

Attributed to Sir Peter Lely (Dutch, working in England, 1618-1680), “Seated Male Figure Looking to His Right”, 1666, black chalk with white highlights (the latter applied selectively to drapery modeling and anatomy), on prepared brown wove paper without watermark, unsigned, but inscribed en verso “2 may 1666”; 22 7/8 x 15 3/4 in., colored in later purplishwhite paint (apparently on original paper) in a 1 1/2 /2-inch inverted L-shaped strip extending approx. 20 in. along left edge, ending in a similar 4 1/2 in.-long strip horizontally along edge of triangular repair at upper left. $1000/1500 Provenance: James R. Lamantia Jr., New Orleans and New York.

Note: This unusually large, powerful, and impressive drawing is dated on its verso in English; and the evident contemporaneity of that inscription is proven by its close similarity to the date of “1666” written at the bottom of the Ashmolean Museum’s portrait drawing of John Aubrey, by Lely’s almost exact contemporary William Faithorne (1616-1691). It happens that 1666 is the very year that Lely inaugurated his most celebrated series of portraits, the Admirals (or flag-officers who had served under the Duke of York at the Battle of Lowestoft, 1665), now in the National 69 Maritime Museum at Greenwich. There is no evidence that this is indeed one of Lely’s standard “posture drawings” that were offered to sitters, as aids to the selection of their attitudes in his portraits; but its style, technique and materials are intimately close to theirs— though this sheet is in fact unusual in showing at least parts of an entire figure, arranged in a pose that is manifestly more informal than either those of a studio pattern book, or probably than those others which were made for a sitter’s retention (in very large numbers, and widely diverse types, principally by Lely himself). Lely, who grew up in The Hague and was trained at Haarlem, came to London in the early 1640s and in 1661-62 became a naturalized British subject, as well as First Painter to the King (that is Charles II, who was restored to the throne after the English Civil War in 1660). Entirely by his own hand, Lely produced many hundreds of paintings of the raffish worthies of the Restoration; with the help of the large army of assistants whom he employed, the number of his studio works and replicas rises into the thousands. He became enormously rich, and used most of his income to acquire works of art: he owned some twenty-five capital paintings by his great predecessor Van Dyck, and also (according to the catalogue of a 1682 sale after his death) pictures and sculptures by such preeminent artists as Veronese, Correggio, Holbein, Claude Lorrain, and Bernini. His roughly 10,000 prints and drawings constituted probably the finest collection assembled to that time (it was catalogued in 1688 and 1694); the drawings included sheets by Leonardo, Raphael, Giulio, Polidoro, Parmigianino (some 100 studies), Primaticcio, Barocci, the Zuccari, the Carracci, and Rubens. The present sheet was thought by James Lamantia to bear some affinity to life studies by Guercino (1591-1666), and indeed the latter’s Reclining Nude Youth of 1618/19 in the Royal Library at Windsor Castle (inv. no. 01227, MS inv. A. 125)—as well as in three other nearly identical “academy drawings,” in Malibu, Saint Louis, and Genoa—are all similarly rendered in black and white chalk on brown paper close to the shade and size of this drawing. But the Guercino full-figure “academies” are discernibly different in the minutiae of their handling, in precisely those respects in which this figure is most characteristic of Lely and his circle. So the label in English on this sheet (which does not simply record Guercino’s death, since he died at Bologna on 22 December 1666) tends to confirm its production by—or in the studio of—Peter Lely, who might very well have used as a model one of the drawings by Guercino that he may himself have owned.

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.

Note: This extremely fine drawing is clearly preparatory to an engraving intended to be published, perhaps in Dumont’s famous Recueil de Plusieurs Parties d’Architecture, probably in the penultimate section, devoted to “Les Églises” (1761/1767). A few of the prints included in that part of his celebrated compendium have 183 dates as early as 1751 and 1752, so that this exceptional sheet might have been drawn as early as mid-century. It shows—above and inside its uniform Tuscan order—an altogether original and exciting vaulting system, in which the barrel-vaults over the arms of the Greek cross, the central hemispherical dome (capped by a steeper pointed shell as a protection against the weather), and the great half-dome over the apse, are all isolated behind immensely high perimeter walls, articulated on the exterior with Tuscan pilasters, a full cornice, and attic (with a semicircular pediment over the façade). A Parisian, Dumont won the Prix de Rome and from 1742 to 1746 worked at the Académie de France there, being elected in the latter year to the Accademia di San Luca (as well as to the academies in Florence and Bologna). He returned to Rome in 1750 with his lifelong friend (and the famous architect of “le Panthéon” or Ste-Geneviève in Paris), Jacques-Germain Soufflot (1713-1780); the two made a pioneering visit to the Greek temples at Paestum near Naples, which Soufflot published with many of Dumont’s plates in 1764 (and of which the latter issued his own series in 1769). Such detailed, accurate, and highly finished images as this design set the standard for instruction—for example by Jacques-François Blondel (1705-1774), who used the three volumes of the Recueil in his courses—at the Académie d’Architecture in Paris, in which Dumont was also a Professor.

European Paintings, lot 127. Note: An important French painter of the Second Empire, Yvon studied under Paul Delaroche, and was acclaimed for his battle scenes. Shortly after the end of the Crimean War in September 1855, Yvon was commissioned by the French government to paint a large picture of the capture of the Malakoff at Sevastopol. He sailed for the Crimea on February 19, 1856 where he spent six weeks compiling a portfolio of sketches, as well as visiting the battlefield of Inkerman. In 1857, the finished painting La Prise de la tour de Malakoff 8 septembre 1855 was shown at the Paris Salon, and two years later came La Gorge de Malakoff, and La courtine de Malakoff. La Prise was a massive piece measuring 6 metres by 9 metres and represented the moment when the fortification was captured around midday. In the succeeding years, Emperor Napoleon III began to admire Yvon’s battle scenes which glorified the carnage of Napoleon I campaigns. Yvon became an officer of the Légion d’Honneur in 1867, and painted Napoleon III’s portrait the following year (unlocated). Yvon was known as the leading teacher of drawing at the École des Beaux-Arts (1863-83).

Alfred Bryan Wall (American, 1861-1935), “Still Life with Rye Straw Basket and Apples”, oil on canvas, signed lower right, 22 in. x 30 in., period frame. $2500/3500 Note: The son of painter Alfred S. Wall and the nephew of William C. Wall, Alfred Bryan Wall was a second-generation member of the Scalp Level School, a regional group who painted the Pennsylvania landscape in which they lived and worked. Wall was not formally trained as a painter, but rather learned from his father and uncle. Like most of the Scalp Level School members, he primarily painted landscapes, and was known for his depictions of sheep at pasture, but sometimes also ventured into the territory of portraits or still lifes. His most well-known portraits are of Andrew Carnegie, Mrs. Henry Clay Frick, and Harry Darlington. The painting here depicts a coiled basket constructed from rye straw, as is the tradition brought to Pennsylvania by the German immigrants of the 18th and 19th centuries.

321

Following his father’s death, Wall took his place as a member of the Fine Arts Committee of the Carnegie Institute, where he helped select the pieces for the official collection. A friend of Thomas Eakins, Wall was painted by the notable artist in 1904 (portrait now located in the Bowdoin College Museum of Art). 323.

Rudolph was most adept with sunsets and nocturnal skies; in this painting, the Louisiana landscape lies below approaching storm clouds. Two large live oak trees stand prominently along the edge of the meandering bayou. As often found in his work, a pirogue with three figures plies the water. Few of Rudolph’s Louisiana landscapes are extant. His work is in the collections of the New Orleans Museum of Art, LSU Museum of Art and the Ogden Museum of Southern Art.

333. Robert S. Duncanson (American/Ohio, 18211872), “Ohio River Valley Landscape”, oil on canvas, unsigned, 28 1/2 in. x 52 in., framed. $40000/60000 Provenance: Descended in the Williams family of Cincinnati, Ohio. Exhibition: Cincinnati Museum of Art, 1972. Publication: James Dallas Parks. Robert S. Duncanson: 19th c. Black Romantic Painter. Washington, DC.: Associated Publishers, 1908. Note: Robert Seldon Duncanson, who is often mistakenly called Robert Scott Duncanson, was a premier American landscape painter also known in Canada, England, and Scotland for his artistic talent. An African-American born into a family of house painters and carpenters, Duncanson had loftier goals and taught himself to paint still lifes and portraits, moving on to landscapes, for which he is best known, in the late 1840s.

332. Thomas Bigelow Craig (American, 1849-1924), “The Potomac, Near Sir John’s Run, Virginia, (now West Virginia)”, oil on canvas laid on wood, signed lower right, titled on label en verso, 4 1/2 in. x 9 1/2 in., original frame. $1000/1500

Duncanson created the majority of his Ohio River Valley landscape paintings in the 1850s, a period when he was also collaborating with the African-American photographer and abolitionist, James Presley Ball (18251904). These two artists exhibited their works together at Ball’s Cincinnati studio and also mentored younger artists, many of whom had immigrated to Cincinnati in order to learn more about the art trade. Duncanson clearly worked within the regional landscape tradition pioneered a generation earlier by John James Audubon (1785-1851) and Joseph Mason (1802-1842), making excursions in local rivers for inspiration and to gather precise records of topography, flora and fauna. Duncanson’s travels were by necessity confined to emancipated regions, specifically Ohio and Michigan. His works are typically monumental in scale and spiritual in tone, as seen in the canvas here. Duncanson also traveled and lived in Canada and England during the Civil War years, where his depiction of Tennyson’s The Lotus Eaters was highly praised, even delighting the poet himself. By the late 1860s and early 1870s, Duncanson’s fame had grown and he was known as “the greatest landscape painter in the west”. A resurgence of interest in Duncanson’s work has recently occurred; the National Gallery, Washington D.C. obtained their first Duncanson painting, an early still life scene from 1848 (acc. 2011.91.1) first on exhibition February 3, 2012.

334. William Bradford (American, 1823-1892), “The Painter Entering the Unknown, Greenland”, oil on canvas laid on board, unsigned, titled en verso and bearing label “Gift Philip Claflin...”, 18 in. x 30 in. $20000/30000 Provenance: An albumen photograph and glass plate negative of this painting are conserved by the New Bedford Whaling Museum. The photograph is included in a scrapbook compiled and inscribed “Into the Unknown” by the artist’s daughter. A digital image of the negative is catalog number 2000.100.1893.20 at www. whalingmuseum.org. Note: Artist and explorer William Bradford often painted scenes from his travels. Journeying to Nova Scotia, Labrador, and Greenland in 1861, Bradford documented the land with both photographs and paintings in his book, The Arctic Region, displaying the photographs. Bradford also lectured on the region, using slides of his paintings. As the title suggests, this may be a painting commemorating Bradford’s first experience in the uncharted territory of Greenland. The dramatic scene, juxtaposing looming mountains of ice and hazy clouds, is characteristic of Bradford’s Romantic style. 335.

The case, with inset lock, tongue and groove backboards, cockbeaded panels, and 18th c. derived skirt, is influenced by Anglo-American cabinetmaking rather than French/Sainte Domingue traditions used downriver closer to New Orleans. The pencil inscription relates to John Nathaniel Evans, Jr. (1832-1883), grandson of the original owner of Greenwood. J.N. Evans, Jr. owned Greenwood c. 1865-1883.

353. An American Rococo Carved and Grained Rosewood Half-Tester Bed, mid19th c., New Orleans, stepped and beaded serpentine tester containing a very fine ruche and pleated inset, tapered posts, paneled headboard centered by a flower filled urn, cascading leaves and scrolls to the sides, footboard with cabochons, conforming low posts with adjustable poles for mosquito netting, shaped rails, height 122 in., length 78 1/2 in., width 70 in.

Note: The finely executed Rococo Revival style of this armoire typifies that of French immigrant cabinetmakers working in New York in the mid-19th c. The scale and form of this armoire indicates probable use in an ambitious Southern house. An armoire related to this lot and bearing the stenciled label of Alexander Roux (France/New York 1813-1886) was sold by Neal Auction Company November 1988 as lot 593.

$8000/12000 Note: Monumental Rococo Revival beds such as the example here were made for the Southern market and proportioned for the grand rooms of houses in the Ohio and Mississippi River valleys. Perhaps taking inspiration from European “State Beds”, these finely carved and ambitious 355 American tester beds not only functioned with mosquito nets in summer and insulating drapes in winter, but also conveyed the traditional oligarchic society where they were used. Contrasting with the “closet” scale furniture seen in New England bedrooms, American Rococo tester beds were designed for a more public admiration. Many details on the bed offered here appear in other known beds, including the prominent bed at Lansdowne, Natchez; Gallier House, New Orleans; and a bed from a White Castle, Louisiana Plantation sold as lot 294 October 11, 2008.

356. An Important American Rococo Carved and Laminated Rosewood Center Table, c. 1850, attributed to John Henry Belter, New York, the serpentine white marble top above a conforming pierced skirt with grapevine carving, each side centered by a Renaissance portrait bust; fruit carved cabriole legs connected by C scroll stretchers, centered by a floral and fruit urn, casters, height 28 in., width 40 in., depth 29 in.

356

$25000/35000 Note: The portrait busts on this table are executed similarly to examples from John Henry Belter’s oeuvre: the rounded physiognomy relates to the “Founding Fathers” busts on a sofa and an “Ancient Poets” parlor suite, attributed to Belter in the Manney Collection; Romantic poets on the legs of a library table offered by Neal Auction Company as lot 811 September 13, 2009; and Classical poets on a table sold by Christie’s as lot 129, October 3, 2007. This table is nearly identical to a table with the portrait busts sold by Neal Auction Company as lot 838 on December 3, 2005, realizing $67,500.

357

76

Note: Though made in New York City, high style Rococo Revival furniture such as the méridienne seen here had particular historic appeal to plantation owners in the Deep South. Rococo style simultaneously evoked 18th-century estate living and robust 19th-century innovation that appealed to the agrarian society.

475. Alice Ravenel Huger Smith (American/South Carolina, 18761958), “Sunrise”, watercolor on artist board, signed lower right, 21 5/8 in. x 15 3/8 in., framed. $4000/6000 Provenance: Succession of Harry T. Howard III. The artist was a cousin of Mr. Howard’s mother, Elise Mason Smith Howard (1896-1990). Note: A founding member of the Charleston Etchers Club, Smith studied the Japanese woodblock collection of a cousin and built on those observations to produce a number of prints before giving up the medium to pursue watercolor full time. It was in this medium that Smith produced her best work, combining her study of Japanese art with her observations of the Lowcountry to create flowing tonalist watercolors, an excellent example of which is “Sunrise”, probably painted on a barrier island near her home. 476. William Henry Buck (American/New Orleans, 1840-1888), “A View in the Caribbean with a Rocky Cliff, ‘French’ House, and Palm Trees”, oil on board, unsigned, “French’s Artist Board, N.Y.” label en verso, 12 in. x 20 in.; together with two c. 1895 French language instruction books, both inscribed “Mina Buck”. $7000/10000 Provenance: Private estate collection, Birmingham, Alabama.

Note: The painting offered here is distinctly rare in the oeuvre of William Henry Buck. Depicting a view of a Caribbean island, it shows a rocky cliff which slopes dramatically to an idyllic beach with a French colonial house surrounded by a glade of palm trees. As is often found in Buck’s work, boats containing several figures ply the waters. Whether the artist traveled to the Caribbean is not known. He was a successful merchant and cotton broker, so perhaps he did have occasion to make a visit and record what he saw.

478. A Southern Walnut Campeachy Chair, early 19th c., arched crest with ball finials, scrolled arms with supports continuing to floor, curule supports with molded stretchers, presented in frame. $1500/2500 Note: The use of walnut, the demilune crest, shaped arms and the unadorned stretchers on this chair are likely indicative of a Virginia maker. A maple chair from Fluvanna County descended in the Gwathmey family has similar elements to those seen here.

$8000/12000 Provenance: Private estate collection, Birmingham, Alabama. Descended in the family of William Henry Buck. Note: The almost certain pendant to this painting is an oil on board, “Loading Ice, Bangor, Maine”, signed by Buck and sold as lot 804 by Neal Auction Company on December 4, 2005. In 1883, a Daily States newspaper article noted Buck’s New Orleans studio contained “...several fine canvases representing the Penobscot River, Maine and Canada”. The descent of this painting to the artist’s daughter, Wilhelmina (Mina) Buck (1870-c. 1930), makes this landscape a reference for the view in the 1883 newspaper article. Reference: H. Parrott Bacot, Louisiana Art from the Roger Houston Ogden Collection. exhibition catalogue, 1992, p. 27.

The campeche form has a distinctive history in North America. With origins in the “Butac” chair known in Campeche, a port city of the Yucatan Peninsula, scholars Cybele Gontar and Francis Puig posit that this Central American chair form evolved in the Lower Mississippi River Valley during Spanish rule of the late eighteenth century. A mahogany chair, now in the James Madison Museum, was given to Madison by Thomas Jefferson who used it as a model for “Campeachy” chairs made at the Monticello joinery.

The distinctive continuation of the arm support to the floor on this lot is a rare innovation that cleverly reinforces structural vulnerabilities known in the form.

Note: African-American painter and preacher William Arthur Cooper first began his art career as a means to illustrate his sermons. Born near Hillsborough, NC in 1895, Cooper’s talents led him to several careers including law and insurance brokerage. His art career flourished in the 1930s beginning with his inclusion in an exhibition sponsored by the Harmon Foundation in New York. His work became more secular and he focused on the everyday lives of the people in his Charlotte congregation. In the mid 1930s he toured the state speaking at both black and white colleges and schools. It was during this time he published his first book A Portrayal of Negro Life. The book was illustrated by twenty-seven of his paintings. Cooper left North Carolina in 1940 and moved to St. Louis where he preached and wrote several more books.

511. Walter Inglis Anderson (American, 1903-1965), “Cecropia Moths, ‘The Heavenly Twins’”, c. 1960, watercolor with traces of graphite on paper, estate stamped with initials “WIA” lower right, Albers Fine Art Gallery, Memphis, TN label en verso, 11 in. x 8 1/2 in., floatmatted and framed. $8000/12000 Exhibited: Albers Fine Art Gallery, Memphis, Tennessee, October 22-November 24, 1993. Note: Walter Anderson spent long stretches of time on Horn Island painting colorful watercolors of the flora and fauna. Despite enduring the sometimes harsh elements of nature, he created a large group of watercolors during the last fifteen or so years of his life. Anderson’s best work from this period uses his technique of vivid colors set down separately, with the white ground of the paper used as part of the composition. The painting offered here depicts two cecropia moths. Unlike most of his work of the nature of Horn Island, this piece actually has a story behind the subject. Anderson found two cecropia moth cocoons, one on Belle Fontaine Beach near Ocean Springs and the other on Horn Island, which he placed in a large jar. They hatched the same day and were called “the heavenly twins”. He created a series of watercolors of the two moths, one of which is illustrated in The Art of Walter Anderson (p.219). The work offered here depicts the “twins” in an active state with their wings upraised.

Note: Following his retirement from the Newcomb Art School in 1921, William Woodward and his family moved to Biloxi, MS. They bought a lot at 123 Benachi Avenue where they built a studio/home. Benachi Avenue was Biloxi’s “Avenue of Oaks” and provided much inspiration to Woodward. The painting offered here depicts a windswept moss-laden live oak tree before the meandering Biloxi River. A beautiful example of Southern Impressionism, Woodward employs a bright palette in his portrayal of the Gulf Coast landscape. The work contains an energy and sense of atmosphere and motion not often found in his work of this period. Importantly, Woodward himself thought highly of this painting as indicated by its extensive exhibition record.

Rodrigue often painted her, with the typical “black eyes” and “brown tresses” from the poem. While he used several models, sitting most often was Diane Bernard Keogh, the daughter of friends of the artist. The figure here is depicted here with her basket of roses, as narrated in Longfellow’s poem, and the model’s melancholy expression adds to the romantic sadness of the story of the star-crossed lovers Evangeline and Gabriel.

Frye opened a second portrait studio two years later in Huntsville, Alabama. In 1865 the Kentucky legislature commissioned Frye to paint a posthumous portrait of Henry Clay. Frye’s career was cut short by mental and physical health problems. Eventually he was committed to the Alabama Insane Hospital, where he died at the age of 50. Reference: Adams, E.
