It is likely that this bookcase with the reticulated tracery was inspired by the same source as the étagères.

XV) in George Smith’s Guide (London, 1828) may also have been influential. The filigree decoration above a Greek Revival portico (pl.30) in Asher Benjamin’s Practice of Architecture (Boston, 1847) is also related. Reference: Feld.

Plate 202 of Pierre de la Mèsangére’s 1806 Collection de meubles et objets de goût illustrates a vide poche with a trestle base, similar to that seen here. The fine lotus carved stretcher on this table closely relates to those on tables designed by George Bullock (published by Ackerman in 1824) and George Smith. Perhaps the strongest design precedent for this “occasional” table appears in Thomas King’s 1829 Modern Style of Cabinet Work Exemplified described in the “old French style” having a lyre-form support comprised of opposing C-scrolls, as seen here. The extensive English precedents for this form can be seen in games tables designed by Thomas Sheraton, a table published by Rudolf Ackerman in 1814, and a 1820 “occasional table” design by Richard Brown.

John Abbot (1751-1840) Although revered in his lifetime for his work advancing the knowledge of the flora and fauna of the American South, Abbot’s exquisite watercolors of birds, insects, moths and butterflies remain scarce in this country. Most of his work was published in England and kept there in private collections. Born in London in 1751 to a prosperous family, Abbot became fascinated with studying birds and insects and eventually learned drawing from the master Jacob Bonneau, becoming an intimate within the circle

of noted naturalists of the time. In 1773, armed with commissions from the Royal Society and other private collectors in London, Abbot set out for the New World, settling in Jamestown, VA, and two years later moving to Georgia. He remained active in Georgia for the next five decades, collecting and documenting natural history specimens, producing watercolors, and sending his work to collectors in Europe and the United States. We are pleased to offer these fine and rare examples of Abbot’s work.

Abbott Fuller Graves (American, 1859-1936), “Brulatour Courtyard, Vieux Carré, New Orleans”, c. 1927-28, oil on canvas, signed lower right, 21 in. x 18 in., period frame. $35000/45000 Note: Abbott Fuller Graves was an influential Boston painter known for floral garden scenes painted in a colorful, Impressionistic style. Not fond of the cold New England winters, Graves traveled to different tropical locales during that time of year. He visited New Orleans during the winters of 1927 and 1928 and was inspired to paint the courtyards of the Vieux Carré. The painting presented here is a lovely example of one such scene - a painterly view, with the effects of sunlight and shadow rendered very skillfully. In his view of the often depicted Brulatour Courtyard, Graves imparts his own style and penchants for tropical scenery by prominently and vibrantly painting the colorful flowers and plants. The Brulatour Courtyard was a popular subject for many artists of the period since the Brulatour Mansion at 520 Royal Street was the home of the Arts & Crafts Club of New Orleans for many years. The Arts & Crafts Club of New Orleans was the epicenter of New Orleans’ art and historic preservation movements in the first half of the 20th century. The social and cultural hub for the many artists, writers and musicians who lived in the French Quarter, the club introduced modern art and important artistic trends to New Orleans through exhibitions, instruction and lectures by such influential persons as Gertrude Stein. The club was in operation from 1922 until 1951. Reference: Bonner, Judith H., The New Orleans Arts & Crafts Club: An Artistic Legacy, The Historic New Orleans Collection, 2007.

An American Classical Carved Mahogany Writing Table and Bookcase, c. 1820, attributed to Duncan Phyfe, New York, stepped cornice over glazed doors, shelf interior, three drawers below, foldover baize-lined writing surface, kneehole configuration of drawers below, turned and faceted legs ending in brass ball feet, height 89 in., width 50 in., depth 24 1/4 in. Bears old inscription top side of base (under the bookcase) “Handle with care ?Jna? Dassel Company, Cal”. $6000/8000 320

Note: Phyfe’s progression of the Grecian Style, specifically in the form of the desk and bookcase, begins with a cylinder desk, c. 1815-20, now in the collection of the Metropolitan Museum of Art (acc. 1985-236a, b). Throughout this progression, the proportion of the cornice, bookcase and kneehole configuration of drawers remains consistent. The Metropolitan desk relates to the bookcase offered here in its similar flat projecting cornice as well as in the configuration of drawers. A labeled Phyfe desk and bookcase, c. 1820, and probably purchased by Thomas Latimer (1765-1833), shares a similar cornice, albeit with the addition of a scrolled pediment, and shares the same bookcase and kneehole proportions as seen here. The form continues its evolution in the Grecian Style well into the 1830s with another desk from the Richard and Beverly Kelley collection, again with the same cornice and bookcase proportion, but with a scroll and pillar base.

Attributed to Cornelius De Beet (Dutch/Maryland, c. 17721840), A Mounted Drover with Cattle and Sheep, near a Rustic Bridge, in the Maryland Countryside, oil on wood panel, unsigned, with extensive Barrett & Co. of Baltimore framers’ label en verso, 11 3/4 in. x 14 1/8 in., in original gilt frame with anthemion corners. $3000/5000 Note: The Amsterdam painter De Beet was about thirty-eight when he came to Baltimore in 1810, so his full professional training in his native city may be assumed. It is thus hardly surprising that this deftly painted and consummately appealing landscape should betray not only contemporary Dutch influence, but especially the light, feathery style of the celebrated landscapes of Thomas Gainsborough (1727-1788). In form, mood, and handling, this jewel-like panel comes very close, for example, to Gainsborough’s Mountain Landscape with Bridge (c.1784) in the National Gallery of Art, Washington—with which painting it also shares its figural subjects and details of the landscape. De Beet exhibited at the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts from 1812 to 1832, and two of his first pictures shown there were A View on Jones Falls, near Baltimore, and A View of Jones Falls (nos. 14 and 199 in 1812); he also exhibited a View near Baltimore at that city’s Peale Museum in 1822. Jones Falls is a good-

363

sized river of over 20 miles in length (the early source of Baltimore’s water supply), which rises to the northwest of the city and flows through Shawan, Brooklandville, Mt. Washington, Pimlico, Woodberry, and Hampden, before it reaches North Avenue at Druid Hill; it almost exactly bisects the city as it runs into Baltimore Harbor just east of the main business district (its course was paralleled by Falls Road, now the Jones Falls Expressway of Interstate 83). Two of the artist’s later landscapes in the Maryland Historical Society are in fact Hollingsworth Mill on the Jones Falls at the 28th St. Bridge (c. 1830) and A View of the Great Bend of Jones Falls at the Belvedere Street Bridge (c. 1835). In the same range of approximate dates this fine painting may thus be placed, as another image in this famous sequence (if it is not, indeed, one of the similarly named pictures of 1812 or 1822).

While there are any number of German personal as well as place names such as Kulbach, Külbach, or Kuhlbach, the suffix ‘-gen’ seems to be rare to the point of non-existence (since it derives, instead, from Greek); the eliding of the initials of the artist’s given names might signify, for example, either ‘Franz-Joseph’ or ‘Johann-Frederick’; but concentrations of the “Kulbach-’ root in the regions east of Cologne might indicate that this artist came perhaps from Westphalia. The non-integral measures of the stretcher (which approximate instead to 80 cm. x 124 cm.) might even imply that the traveling artist took a sketch of this scene back to the Continent, and painted the finished picture there. But it is probably safer to assume that this dramatic panorama of the pioneer settlement of the West was both made (perhaps by an immigrant through the port of Galveston or New Orleans) and retained in America. The beautifully painted scene shows an evening encampment of three Conestoga wagons, functioning as ‘prairie schooners,’ drawn loosely around a number of fire-pits, beside which their animals and occupants are resting. The cattle, though conspicuously horned, are perhaps not true ‘longhorns’ in the modern definition of that eventual breed; the costumes have an indefinably indigenous or even Spanish flavor; and at least one Native American (perhaps a guide?) seems to be present at the central fire. The strong impression is that these settlers may have traveled some considerable distance, and are en route to a destination perhaps in east Texas. The landscape features seem to bear out this interpretation of the locale. Across the long horizon stretches an apparent cypress swamp; ancient oaks, hung with moss, provide a repoussoir effect on the left; they, and the small hillock at right, fall away gently into the red earth of the bottomland. The deftly painted setting sun casts a roseate hue over a low cloud-bank over the horizon, giving way to the few wispy clouds overhead, skillfully reflected on the canvas of the wagons. We are left with a powerful example of a heretofore unknown artist capable of majestic American landscape painting. W denotes the lot is illustrated at www.nealauction.com

369. American School, mid-19th c., “The Sinking of the Privateer CSS Petrel by the USS Frigate St. Lawrence, off Charleston SC on 1 August 1861”, oil on canvas, unsigned, with “CSS Petrel & USS St. Lawrence” inscribed in later black paint en verso of stretcher, 16 in. x 24 in., in period coved giltwood frame. $2000/3000 Published: Harper’s Weekly; issue of 24 August 1861, pages 536-537 (with the woodcut reproduction of this painting occupying a full two-page spread), text on p. 538. Note: This rare discovery apparently represents the oil painting of one of the famous woodcuts depicting the progress of the Civil War, published in Harper’s Weekly: or alternatively, a major oil painting exactly copying that woodcut. The text associated with that extra-large woodcut explains that the Federal frigate St. Lawrence was laying beside one of the small shoal islands just offshore from the Charleston harbor, on the afternoon of 1 August 1861, when “a trim-built, rakish vessel of war” put out from the harbor, under the misapprehension that the Federal ship might have been a large, valuable merchantman. That second ship turned out to be a former U. S. Revenue Cutter, the General Aiken, that had been seized in port by the 368 Confederates in December 1860, and recommissioned as the CSS Petrel. Since it did fly the Confederate flag (as seen in this painting), the St. Lawrence simply remained in readiness to await the outcome. The Petrel came close enough to shout orders for the supposed merchantman to heave to, with the intention of landing a boarding party on its decks. Getting no response, the Petrel fired three shots in quick succession: two fell in front of the frigate, while the third shot passed directly over its deck, “whistling through the rigging and falling in dangerous proximity to some of the officers.” The St. Lawrence then threw up her port lids, revealing its multiple cannon with crews already at work igniting them. The result is graphically shown in this exceptional painting: the Petrel, destroyed by that broadside in only a few moments, very rapidly filled and sank. From this point the story told visually by this painting—perhaps executed in the scant three weeks before its rushed reproduction in the matching woodcut—and the written account then published of the incident diverge sharply. In the painting and woodcut we see one of the Petrel’s own boats (presumably the one intended to board the ‘merchantman’) filled with survivors, two of whom are waving white tokens of surrender; many more hapless sailors are seen in the water, or clinging to the wreckage of the former cutter. The text, however, claims that the 369 St. Lawrence lowered all its boats, and picked up thirty-six of the Petrel’s crew—while five others (“either wounded or unable to swim”) went down with the ship. The text’s comment that “a shell 368. George Washington Sully (American/New Orleans, 1816-1890), exploded in her hold” is clearly represented in the painting and “Rack Picture, with Letter, Almanac, and Business Card”, mid-19th c., watercolor woodcut, instead, as a mishap that occurred on the cutter’s on trimmed papers, variously laid down on primed canvas board, unsigned, 9 afterdeck. Harper’s published text is headed “Another Privateer 1/2 in. x 11 3/4 in., attractively framed. Sunk,” and that term is often used in the story; the incident of $1000/1500 course took place barely three months after the Confederate firing Provenance: The artist’s son, New Orleans architect Thomas Sully; the latter’s daughter, Jeanne on Fort Sumter, and both Northern readers as well as Federal Sully West; collector and author William Barrow Floyd, Lexington, KY. military forces would have welcomed this event as a balancing of the score between North and South.

His artistic oeuvre includes birds, landscapes, scene, or a faithful (and more or less immediate) copy after caricatures, and cartoons, as well as rack pictures such as this. He may fairly be said to have Harper’s woodcut, this vivacious painting brilliantly captures the ‘inherited’ his artistic talent, for he seems never to have taken instruction. This composition is nature of this ill-fated maritime engagement. typical of his freedom of style, in containing a fictive letter (shown as postmarked from Norfolk in October of an unknown year), a simulated business card of Messrs. A. Murphy and C. Iveleth, ‘wholesale dealers in crockery etc.’ on Commerce Street in Mobile, and an ‘almanac’ inscribed as printed secondarily in Philadelphia and New York, but primarily by Hotchkiss in New Orleans; these locations strongly suggest that the composition may have been executed in Louisiana.

Note: Roesen, the most celebrated master of lush American still-life painting during and just after the mid-19th century, was apparently born in Cologne (where he is known to have exhibited in 1847), and may have studied in Düsseldorf. Emigrating to the United States in 1848, he worked in New York until 1852, then transferred to Pennsylvania, painting in the principal cities until about 1860, when he made his final move to the thriving lumber town of Williamsport, where he is last mentioned in the city directories in 1872. He was the principal American master of exactly this form, size, and composition of major still-life subjects, wherein he frequently recalled his own early training as a painter on porcelain: note the prominent blue bowl in this striking still life. Roesen trained a variety of pupils, including (besides the shadowy “Emmit[?] P…” of this canvas) Henry W. Miller, Lyle Bartol, and others; a careful cleaning of the apparently overpainted signature might well reveal this artist’s full name. This rare painting is very close indeed to Roesen’s style—even the vine leaf at upper left, afflicted with blight, is a recurring motif in his work—but the choice of a dark (marble?) tabletop, the slight crowding at the left center, and the unusually bright background, serve to denote the mysterious painter of this work as a pupil or follower. The fact that the two transparent objects are apparently fashioned of cut crystal (a typical art form of western Pennsylvania and the Ohio valley, toward the latter part of the 19th century) might possibly advance the date of this painting’s execution by a decade or so.

Attributed to Joseph Highmore (British, 1692-1780), “Portrait of a Lady, Probably Hannah Sansay”, c. 1730s, oil on canvas, unsigned, with 19th c. handwritten identification label en verso, 44 in. x 40 in., in the finely carved original gilt frame. $2000/4000 Provenance: In December 1978 with Julian Simon Fine Art, London (original receipt accompanying the painting). Note: This fine and impressive portrait bears the following identification label on the reverse of the top rail of its original frame: “Either / Maria Antrobus who married Edward / Sansay[?] 1715 Or else[?] probably / Hannah Sansay[?] who married / Thos. Antrobus 1719”. The beginning and end of this inscription are in a uniform handwriting, and were evidently penned in the early 19th century; word “probably”—and the indistinct word preceding it—were added somewhat later, in the same ink and presumably in the same hand, by family archive. The family record summarized is unusual, with the sister of a 1715 bridegroom marrying in 1719 the brother of the earlier bride; it may have been the very singularity of these conjoined events that

701

led—approximately a century later—to their quite accurate memory (though without a definite decision as to the sitter). This lady of the Sansay-Antrobus family appears to be in her early maturity, at least ten or fifteen years beyond the date of her marriage. Her very carefully painted costume is characteristic of the later 1720s or the 1730s, in that variants of it—the lace-edged double sleeves and shawl (with its central fastening), the lace cap, and the gloves—recur in paintings by Highmore’s contemporaries, such as Maria Verelst (Lady Binning, dated 1725, Earl of Haddington, Berwickshire); William Hogarth (The Beggar’s Opera, 1728/9, National Gallery of Art, Washington); and George Knapton (Lucy Ebberton, undated, Dulwich Gallery); these shared sartorial conventions ultimately derive from the fashions of Sir Godfrey Kneller (as for example in his Lady Mostyn, 1705, of which a version is in the National Portrait Gallery, London). The existing attribution to Highmore may be sustained, however, by the very pronounced warmth and geniality of this likeness, as well as the precision and sobriety of the draperies—qualities that readily distinguish him from Hogarth on the one hand, and Knapton (et alia) on the other. The London-born Joseph Highmore was initially trained to the law, but in 1713 entered Kneller’s Academy of Painting, and by 1715 became an independent portrait painter. He visited the Low Countries and the Rhineland in 1732, and Paris in 1734, after which he helped to introduce a more Rococo aspect into British portraiture. This painting’s directness and informality, its penetrating likeness, and the meticulous rendering of its fabrics, are all touchstones of Highmore’s style at mid-career. By the later 1730s he had approximated Hogarth’s more painterly handling; his style became still looser in the 1740s and 1750s, eventually following the rising star of Sir Joshua Reynolds. Highmore retired from painting in 1762, but pursued a second career as a writer on art and perspective; he died in Canterbury at age eighty-seven.

720. Attributed to George Cooke, A.N.A (American/ Maryland/New Orleans, 17931849), “A Gentleman presumably of the Lapsley Family of Alabama”, c. 1848, oil on canvas, unsigned, 32 in. x 25 3/4 in., in a period frame. $7000/10000 Provenance: Collection of Felix H. Kuntz, New Orleans, from c. 1940s (acquired from Albert Lieutaud, New Orleans).

720

Note: In 1848, a year before he died, the itinerant Maryland painter George Cooke developed a novel treatment of his traditional background vista, for the prestigious commissions he received from the Lapsley family of Alabama. At their home south of Selma near the confluence of the Cahaba and Alabama rivers (as perhaps shown here), he painted not only a more traditional image of the paterfamilias, Col. John Whitefield Lapsley (1806-1889), a prominent attorney and successful entrepreneur; but also—posthumously—his lately deceased infant son Joseph Fairfax Lapsley (1845-1847), into whose considerably more elaborate portrait (now in the Johnston Collection, Spartanburg, SC) Cooke introduced the same riparian vista as we see in this unnamed portrait. Only very minor differences occur in the two prospects: the rivers take a marginally different course, and there are somewhat fewer trees; the single brown horse in Fairfax’s portrait (which apparently had belonged to the child) is here changed to a group of four white cattle, of which the standing one is rendered in precisely the same stance and silhouette, on an identical foreground shore. The curiously designed small-river steamboat, already tentatively identified in Fairfax’s painting as one of the Lapsley family’s fleet, is brought much closer, encouraging the hypothesis that this strikingly handsome sitter might have been an elder brother of Fairfax—or, more plausibly perhaps, one of his uncles—who may have been especially concerned with cattle and with shipping. Cooke’s characterization of this gentleman is, itself, unusual for the sun-induced ruddiness of his nose and cheeks, the higher than customary lift of his collar points, and the sitter’s decision to dress entirely in black: that collar is in fact the only trace of what was otherwise a universally standard white shirt, here occluded by a cravat apparently so luxuriant as to descend, below its bow, in wide tassels completely covering the shirtfront (and possible waistcoat). Together with his dramatic coiffure and penetrating gaze, this robust gentleman indeed makes an unforgettably commanding impression. References: Donald D.

Eliab Metcalf (American/New York, 1785-1834), “The Artist’s Son James Whiting Metcalf Aged Twelve, Studying Geography”, 1827, oil on canvas, unsigned, 24 in. x 19 3/4 in., antique giltwood frame. $1200/1800 Provenance: The sitter (1815-1856); his son James Betts Metcalf (1843-1896); his son Bryce Metcalf Sr. (1874-1951); his son Bryce Metcalf Jr. (1915-1984); by further family descent to the New York consignor; Doyle’s, New York, 29 November 2000, lot 24; by purchase to the present consignor. Note: This captivating painting was unknown until a dozen years ago, when it came onto the New York market in a group of family pictures descending from the sitter himself. (One of that group was a standard, rather formal portrait of apparently the same sitter, aged eighteen.) This picture, though unsigned, is guaranteed to Eliab Metcalf through its survival in that group, which also included two Self-Portraits of the artist: the earlier one, an exceptional image painted in New Orleans in 1819, is included here as lot 914. The identification of this sitter as J. W. Metcalf, and the painting’s date of 1827, both descended in family documentation. The artist kept a meticulous “day-book” of the appointments of his sitters, beginning in New York on 1 January 1823 (immediately on his return from New Orleans) and extending to 4 April 1833, when his respiratory disease forced him to abandon work: that small notebook is presumably still in the Metcalf family’s possession, and is doubtless the source for these details. This touchingly complete image shows the artist’s son as a very well-dressed pre-teen, his head propped on his right hand, his left holding a lesson-book; beneath that subject of his study is a paper map (apparently including the Gulf of Mexico and the Caribbean, in whose warmer latitudes the elder Metcalf spent his winters). Below that is a green-covered lap desk, and on the table beside this ensemble is a terrestrial globe on a table-stand, its shape exactly echoing young James’ head. Along the back wall of the room, most surprisingly, an apparently extensive series of bookshelves are revealed by a curtain pulled aside at right: the volumes packed into its spaces attest to the very considerable affluence of this New York family. The handling is broad and confident, the tonality warmly appealing: this unusually intimate portrait easily succeeds in transmitting its atmosphere of pure delight.

921. John Genin (French/New Orleans, 1830-1895), “A Creole Gentleman” (after an early 19th c. portrait), oil on canvas, signed lower right, 24 in. x 20 in. in a period gilt frame (with E. N. Kuntz label on side). $1500/2500 Provenance: Felix H. Kuntz Collection, New Orleans. Note: Genin was a native of Lyons who made many summer trips to France from New Orleans, but he painted portraits in that city from 1860 until his death (Census Records, and City Directories). A recurring feature, especially of his later career, is that he was sometimes commissioned to replicate earlier 19th century paintings, whose secondary versions evidently functioned as inheritable records of their sitters’ appearances for later family members. Just such an instance of replication occurred in Genin’s renderings of the portraits of Pierre François du Bourg and his wife, née Élisabeth Charest de Lauzon, which have descended in a branch of that family in Baton Rouge. The present depiction of this very similar Creole gentleman is—apart from his curly bangs and heightened skin tone—nearly identical with the former portrait, though it is painted as a rectangle rather than an oval. This accomplished canvas certainly captures the elegant restraint of the c. 1830s original, and would have served admirably as a fine record of the sitter’s likeness, for a younger member of his eventual family.

947. Clarence Millet, A. N. A.

From 1922 to 1924 Millet studied at the Art Students’ League in New York City, before returning in the latter year to New Orleans, where he worked for the rest of his life. The combination of these facts, with the Gimbels Department Store stencil on the reverse of this canvas board, very strongly supports the hypothesis that this bold and innovative painting was executed in New York during those formative years. Indeed the depicted cityscape seems to bear this out, with the broad “avenue” at left intersected by a typically narrower “side street” in the foreground. The unassuming commercial scene itself appears to fit this interpretation: the size and character of the buildings, their awnings and signage, the flickering images of fast-moving traffic, with a few rain-lashed pedestrians under a lurid night sky, all suggest the strong effect on this 26-year-old artist of the bombshell of European Expressionism, which had burst on the American scene through New York’s notorious Armory Show of 1913, just ten years before.

$2000/3000 Note: Alice Moseley (1909-2004) was a self-taught “idyllic folk artist” who began painting at the age of 60. For many years she had a log cabin studio at Plum Point Retreat near Batesville in northern Mississippi. Her work is based upon her memories and a lifetime of images of a folk past, rendered with brilliant color and simplistic detail. Her sometimes humorous titles convey her imagination in painting these scenes from her past. Moseley exhibited extensively and won numerous awards during her lifetime. In her later years, she moved to Bay St. Louis where her studio currently exists as the Alice Moseley Museum. The works offered here are from a private collection and were acquired directly from the artist over many years. The collectors and “Miss Alice” were great friends and enjoyed a delightful correspondence.

It is an essentially graphic theme found on Mesopotamian cylinders, Egyptian bas-reliefs, Mycenean pottery … and Dogon totems… it is a very stylized figure, probably a flower, that has been used as an ornament or an emblem by almost all civilizations of the old and new worlds.” – Michel Pastoureau in Traité d’Héraldique. Today, the fleur-de-lis is particularly associated with the French monarchy and with areas in North America formerly settled by the French, including Quebec, St. Louis, Louisville and Louisiana. The Acadiana region and various cities in southern Louisiana, such as Lafayette, New Orleans and Baton Rouge, rely heavily on the use of the fleur-de-lis as a symbol of civic identity. Following Hurricane Katrina, the fleur-de-lis witnessed widespread use throughout the city of New Orleans as an icon of grassroots support for recovery. In July 2008, Governor Bobby Jindal signed into law a bill making the fleur-de-lis an official symbol of the state of Louisiana. The Hornets, the Zephyrs and, most notably, the New Orleans Saints football team (est. Nov. 1, 1966) incorporate the fleur-de-lis into their logos.

Note: Morris Henry Hobbs print “The Village Depot” was included in the Albert Reese’s book American Prize Prints of the 20th Century published by American Artists Group. Hobbs wrote of his inspiration for the print “The little depot in Palatine, Ill., complete with cherry-red stove, and the usual musty station odors, seemed as dingy and uninteresting as waiting rooms generally are. The village loafer was sleeping in his usual seat, travelers were coming and going, and small boys on vacation for the Christmas holidays played tag in and out of the building. Through the window a thin snow was falling, dimming the outside world. It suddenly dawned upon me that here was a place of America, as characteristic of the small town as anything could be. I dug frantically into my pockets for a piece of paper to use for sketching, but found nothing except some Christmas cards, in fairly large envelopes. I opened one of these, and cut open the envelope to make it as large as possible. Upon this I made a pencil sketch, working as fast as possible, for my train was due any minute. Because of the snowstorm it was a few minutes late so I managed to get the sketch fairly well completed before rushing for the train. The plate was made a few weeks later in my New Orleans studio.” W 1215. A Neoclassical-

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.

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 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.
