Note: This impressive bust is a version of a well-known type representing Homer, of which good prototypes are in both the Naples National Museum and the Louvre, Paris. The characteristics which prove the identification are the hair, beard, and moustache, the thin fillet across the bangs over the forehead, the long nose, and the ferocious “squint” of Homer’s blind eyes. Of the two models, that in the Louvre is the more exact in all these particulars, and is evidently the source for the present version—a point emphasized by the French base on which it sits.

An Important American Renaissance Carved and Ebonized Walnut Bedroom Suite, late 19th c., atributed to Allen & Bro., Philadelphia, comprising two mirror-backed dressing chests and a monumental bedstead; the bedstead with fan crest above an arched cornice, paneled frieze with bronzed roundel of Demeter surrounded by garlands, paneled headboard, fan-carved corners, conforming footboard and rails; dresser height 119 in., width 49 in., depth 23 in. and height 118 in., width 60 1/2 in., depth 20 in.; bedstead height 113 in., length 80 1/2 in., width 62 1/2 in. $25000/35000 Note: The bold geometric juxtaposition of ebonization and robustly carved and burled panels on this suite is indicative of work attributed to Allen and Brother, including a center table from the Judith Hollander collection, seat furniture in the Berke collection and an Allen cabinet sold in these rooms as lot 109, October 11, 2008. William Allen Sr., a purveyor of exotic woods and furniture, was succeeded by sons, William Jr. and Joseph in the Allen workshop at 137 Walnut Street, Philadelphia in 1847. By 1869 Joseph partnered with another Allen brother, James, and Allen and Brother had solidified a reputation for fine goods and custom cabinetwork. James Allen closed the firm in 1902.

An American Birdseye Maple Faux Bamboo Dressing Table, c. 1870-1880, New York, rectangular spindled mirror, uprights with quarter-round spindled shelves, the base with long drawer and two small drawers, outswept legs, stretchers, height 59 in., width 43 in., depth 20 1/2 in. $4000/6000 Note: A dressing table identical to the lot seen here was sold by Neal Auction Company as lot 253, June 8, 2002. A dressing table with identical mirror, stile supports, legs and feet to that seen here is conserved by the Metropolitan Museum of Art (acc 68.97.15). A desk bearing the Horner label with legs and feet also identical to those seen here is conserved by the High Museum of Art (acc.1993.142.1) Introduced to Americans by French and English designers at the 1876 Centennial Exposition in Philadelphia, the Japanese aesthetic greatly influenced late 19thcentury American design. American furniture in the Japonesque taste was produced by New York firms such as that of Robert J. Horner, established in 1886 on East 23rd Street. The 1888 Horner publication Our American Homes and How to Furnish Them recommends for bedrooms, “If there is an absence of sunshine, a lighter wood is preferable...” clearly maple furniture like the dressing table here met this requirement.

152. Italian School, 18th c., “The Muse Euterpe, Seated at a Pianoforte”, oil on canvas, unsigned, 53 in. x 38 in., in an attractive antique hand-carved wood frame. $12000/18000 Provenance: 20th Century Fox, Inc.; Darryl Zanuck Note: The motif of pan-pipes-visible in the carved frieze on the urn at the upper right, and accompanying the satyr in the painted panel on the piano-case, clearly identifies the figure as the Muse of Lyric Poetry (that is of instrumental music to be accompanied by flutes), or Euterpe. The Muses of Mount Helicon were said to be the offspring of Zeus himself, in his union with Mnemosyne, or Memory; and indeed the fictive marble figures on the sculptural hemicycle in the background suggest this exalted parentage, as they are glimpsed beyond the charming device of the roll of sheet-music, whose tubular form hints at the flute, the identifying characteristic of this particular Muse. Indeed all the Muses (of whom there were traditionally nine) are at times recorded as playing flutes, and this figure’s gesture toward other pages of sheet-music laid out on the pianoforte might suggest her

34

alternate identification as Polyhymnia (or of song accompanied by musical instruments), were not the pan-pipes so conspicuously featured on the marble urn. The rich but pastel-tinted palette and the serene classical features argue for a date in the first half of the 18th c., probably in Emilia, but with substantial influences from Venice. The segmentally-curved sculptural hemicycle and the gem-studded diadem are both borrowed from Paolo Veronese (Italian, 1528-1588), though the powerful filling of the frame with a richly endowed three-quarter-length figure is more up-to-date, and the delightful motif of the bacchante being fed with grapes on the piano’s painted panel is inspired by such recent masters as Sebastiano Ricci (Venetian 1659-1734). The gestures of the background sculptures recall Tiepolo (Venetian, 1696-1770) and Bortoloni (Italian, 1696-1750); but the central figure has a physical weight and gravitas that is probably Bolognese or Ferraran. The picture was acquired by the middle of the 20th c. for the famed Hollywood studio, and was used as a cinematic property. References: N.G.L. Hammond & H.H.

A Monumental Patinated Bronze Garden Fountain, in the Renaissance taste, the upper tier atop lion’s head masques over a larger basin cast with lion’s heads and foliage, pedestal with four classically draped females on stepped quatrefoil plinth inscribed “FLORA, RUTH, REBECCA AND VIOLA”, the conforming base with masques and scrolled acanthus, height 90 in., diameter 54 in. $6000/9000 154. An American Leaded Glass and Patinated Bronze SixLight Chandelier, early 20th c., of Renaissance inspiration, probably Duffner & Kimberly, New York, six panel ovoid body with black fleur-de-lis on a gold ground, the bronze frame with strapwork cartouches, long chain with strapwork links, C-scroll arms, electrified, height to chain 31 1/2 in., diameter 30 1/4 in. $7000/10000 Note: One of the leading leaded glass lighting designers of the early 20th century, Duffner & Kimberly competed directly and successfully with such firms as Tiffany Studios, Pairpoint and Handel. While the company’s artistic output was not as progressive as Tiffany Studios, Duffner & Kimberly’s excellent craftsmanship and niche production of historical styles such as Louis XIV, Roman, or Renaissance, as exemplified here, placed them on a par with leading contemporary design firms. The fine workmanship and well-molded strapwork as demonstrated in the present lot relate closely aesthetic designs of Duffner & Kimberly.

At the close of the French and Indian War, he had been sent to America by the British Admiralty to survey the coasts of the Maritime Provinces. These provinces, recently acquired from France, had never been adequately mapped, and Des Barres spent the following ten years constructing a series of charts of unparalleled accuracy and schematic beauty, of crucial importance for military maneuvers on the Northeast Coast. Ultimately the project was expanded to include the entire Atlantic and gulf coasts of North America. 199

At the outset of the Revolution, Des Barres was assigned the task of compiling his work and that of others surveying the coast and shorelines of North America into an atlas that would enable the British Navy and Merchant Marines to navigate safely in North American waters. Des Barres returned to England in 1774 and began to prepare his charts for publication. The collected charts appeared as the Atlantic Neptune, a magnificent work consisting of about 275 views, plans and charts, which is considered the first great marine atlas of the eastern seaboard, and by many, the most splendid collection of charts ever published.

He was born in Paramarimbo and appears to have inherited his father’s love of travel. He became one of the first of a new breed of naturalists who attained prominence towards the end of the 18th century, studying and recording their subjects in their natural habitat. Jacques Barraband (1767 or 1768-1809) worked for the Gobelin factory and was considered the best ornithological artist of his time. Langlois’s engravings capture the precision and beauty of his gouache and watercolor originals. Reference: Fine Bird Books; Nissen, IVB 559; Ronsil, 1780; Wood, p. 434; Zimmer, p. 393.

Mark Catesby (1683-1749), The Natural History of Carolina, Florida and the Bahama Islands: Containing the Figures of Birds, Beasts, Fishes, Serpents, Insects, and Plants..., 1771, published by Benjamin White, London, third edition, two volumes, folio, 21 1/2 in. x 15 in., full modern calf with gilt, modern red cloth cases, text in French and English, with 220 hand-colored engraved plates after Catesby. $200000/300000 Note: In 1712, the English-born artist and naturalist Mark Catesby embarked on a series of expeditions to the southern colonies of British North America. Catesby was enthralled by the wildlife of the New World, and he spent years traveling by foot through parts of present-day Virginia, Georgia, the Carolinas and the Bahamas. Over the course of his journeys, he encountered and documented numerous varieties of animal and plant life that were entirely unknown to Europeans. His drawings and written observations were the raw material for an unprecedented project: a scientific account of previously uninvestigated wildlife, with illustrations taken from life. Catesby initially encountered some difficulty in interesting sponsors in his monumental Natural History. Determined nonetheless to persevere in his project, and also wishing to maintain control over the translation of his drawings into print, the artist learned to engrave copper plates and set out to complete the Natural History himself. He produced all

but two of the plates, and painted the impressions himself to further insure their fidelity to his models. The result was the most sweeping, complete and unique natural history study ever done. Despite Catesby’s initial difficulties in finding subscribers, his striking finished product received widespread acclaim. Cromwell Mortimer, Secretary of the Royal Society, declared the publication to be “the most magnificent work I know since the Art of printing has been discovered.” Catesby’s charming, distinctive style sets his work apart from all artists who later followed his example. The overt simplicity of his compositions is deceiving; the artist arranged each of his images with great care, often combining seemingly incongruous elements to create the most artful scene possible. A sense of Catesby’s enthusiasm for his subjects is palpable in his engravings. Very few artists were so personally involved in the completion of a published work, and Catesby’s images convey what the artist must have experienced in America: the colors and varieties of the exotic species of birds, fish, animals, insects and plants of the New World. Widely considered the great achievement of 18th-century art and science, Catesby’s Natural History of Carolina, Florida and the Bahama Islands has lost none of its power to delight in the 250 years since its publication. This remarkable study of American plants and animals is a monument to Catesby’s intelligence, scientific devotion and love of nature. The Natural History has provided an important model for ornithologists and scientists, including John James Audubon, who followed in Catesby’s footsteps a century later.

205 (4 of 12)

Note: The Twelve Months of Flowers was the result of a collaboration of three leading figures in their respective fields in England in the first half of the eighteenth century: the artist, Pieter Casteels III, the engraver, Henry Fletcher and the nurseryman, Robert Furber. Undertaken as a commercial venture in order to sell bound sets of hand-colored copper engraved plates to a group of subscribers, it also served to showcase, by acting as a highquality seed catalogue, Furber’s nursery at Kensington. This was the first commercial horticultural catalogue of its time and as such, it represents a defining point in the history of botanical illustration and horticultural literature in Britain. Over four hundred separate species are depicted. In the plates the individual plants are numbered with a corresponding key listing them by name at the bottom, thus enabling customers to easily identify and order them. 206.

This portrait and the following lot are the same size and proportion as the Antoinette Decuir portrait, and could easily have been done in either Point Coupée or New Orleans, as the family had connections to both locales. Amans had previously painted a portrait of Louise Suzanne Antoinette de Beauvais, Mme. Antoine Decuir, in c. 1835-40; it now hangs at Parlange Plantation. A receipt for two portraits, one of Mme. Decuir, and one of her daughter, exists in the Pointe Coupee Courthouse Records and has been compiled and translated by Creole West Productions. It reads “Received from Madame Descuirs [sic]/ the sum of 300 piastres for/ her portrait and that of her daughter/ New Orleans 1842/J. Amans.” Special thanks to Julie Eshelman-Lee of Creole West Productions for her assistance in research on these portraits. 250.

Robertson 1799” lower left, sight 5 3/4 in. x 4 3/4 in., in a gilt frame. $10000/20000 Note: This miniature is likely a memorial portrait, executed in the last months of 1799, when Walter Robertson had left America. Robertson painted a number of very beautiful miniatures characterized by Morgan and Fielding in their book The Life Portraits of Washington and Their Replicas as “of large size and exhibit[ing] the work of a thoroughly trained artist only equaled in color by those of Malbone.” This image is apparently a free version of one of the life-size full-length portraits by Charles Willson Peale, showing the General as much younger, and in the characteristic uniform of the Continental Army. This miniature’s precision and coloring are indeed remarkable, and make this wonderful image one of the most memorable of Washington’s portraits.

$4000/6000 Note: The Missouri River has a long history of importance to American explorers, frontiersmen, and settlers. The wide, muddy river extends from Montana to St. 252 Louis, Missouri, where it meets up with the Mississippi at its confluence with tributaries from seven states. The river was first investigated by the French explorers Jacques Marquette and Louis Joliet, followed by Etienne de Veniard, Sieur de Bourgmont, James MacKay and John Evans, and Meriwether Lewis and William Clark. Daniel Boone, John James Audubon, and numerous other frontiersmen are known to have travelled along the river. The Missouri River was made famous in paintings by artists including the great American painter George Caleb Bingham, who created compositions such as Fur Traders Descending the Missouri and The Jolly Flatboatmen. The present lot exhibits numerous similarities in subject matter to Bingham’s works, focusing on the carefree nature of life upon the river.

$3000/5000 Provenance: Dillon Antiques, French Quarter, New Orleans, Alvin C. Detwiler Fine Antiques, Royal Street, New Orleans.

$5000/10000 Note: This is a small scale version of the great portrait that Stuart began painting from life in the spring of 1796, and left unfinished in its lower parts. In terms of the costume and style, the miniature is closest to the “Edward Pennington portrait” of the same design, of 1796-1803, now in the Senate Collection in the U.S. Capitol building. The coloring is restrained and sober, in keeping with the General’s reputation; the fine case suggests that it may have been framed contemporaneously.

Note: Elizabeth Popham Montagu, Viscountess Hinchingbrooke, was the wife of Edward Richard Montagu, the son of the third Earl of Sandwich; they resided at their Castle in Huntingdon, known as Hinchingbrooke House. Hinchingbrooke House, which was also briefly home to the Cromwell family, was originally built in the 11th century as a convent. In the 20th century, the house was incorporated into Hinchingbrooke School and houses the 6th form in the British secondary school.

326. A Fine American Rococo Carved Rosewood Center Table, c. 1850-1860, New York, serpentine marble top, the skirt with clusters of flowers, seed pods and vines, raised on flower and fruit-carved cabriole legs connected by a large floral-carved tazza, fitted with casters, height 30 1/2 in., width 42 in., depth 30 in. $6000/8000 Note: The incorporation of very specific and symmetrical rococo highly carved motifs found throughout this center table may be easily associated with the John Henry Belter workshop. The general understanding of known Belter tables should cite several forms, i.e. those with laminated skirts (also used by John and Joseph W. Meeks), the Belter table related to the well-known example found at Rosalie, Natchez, MS. and a group of Belter less highly carved tables that have rather plain skirts. The table offered here, lot 326, is distinctive in that the upper oak skirt frame follows Belter’s work, the carving almost duplicates Belter elements and most especially the branch vine molding of the center skirt and each end of this table.

Similar carved scrolls appear on a bedroom suite labeled by Roux sold by Neal Auction Company as lot 593, November 1988. A bed, also labeled by Roux, with related carved elements is part of the original furnishings of the Henry Shaw House, St. Louis.

327. Joseph Alexander Ames (American, 1816-1872), “Portrait of General George Washington”, oil on canvas, signed and dated “1862” lower right, 30 in. x 25 in., in an antique frame. $7000/9000 Provenance: Grogan & Company, Boston, July 25, 1995 Auction, Sale #66, Lot #295 Note: This very attractive painting by Joseph Ames is based on the portrait in the Cleveland Museum of Art by Joseph Wright (1756-1793), which in turn is based on Wright’s drawing from life (for a miniature portrait) of the spring or summer of 1790. That original image was reproduced by Wright himself in a contemporaneous engraving; his print may be the indirect source for both the Cleveland canvas as well as for this version by Ames. The lower part of this canvas omits the buttons and buttonholes on both the General’s waistcoat as well as his uniform coat, and the panels in both the Cleveland picture as well as this one are shown without their normal gold-braid stars, which is a somewhat unusual feature. This version is slightly larger than the Cleveland canvas, and gives the sitter a robust gravity and a colonistic vitality which are quite exceptional in the portraits of Washington. Reference: John Hill Morgan and Mantle Fielding, The Life Portraits of Washington and their Replicas, Philadelphia, 1931, pp. 69-80, plates no. 6 (etching of 1790) and 7 (Cleveland Museum of Art, before 1815).

The vibrant red color of the flowers suggests Rodrigue’s more colorful Blue Dog series. The Acadian scenes, many of which were included in the New Orleans Museum of Art’s retrospective “George Rodrigue’s Louisiana: Forty Years of Cajuns, Blue Dogs and Beyond Katrina”, alludes to Rodrigue’s roots on the Bayou Teche.

$4000/6000 Provenance: Descended in the family of a friend and hunting companion of the artist, New Orleans. Note: An avid hunter and fisherman, as well as a talented artist, George Louis Viavant combined his two passions to create a successful career as a painter of swamp scenes and nature mortes of the indigenous animals of Southern Louisiana. Using his preferred medium of watercolor on paper, Viavant captures in this evocative painting the peaceful moment when the sun rises over the bayou. Often, his clients were hunting and fishing friends and acquaintances who brought their daily catch to be painted by the artist. Jordan, George E. , George Louis Viavant: Artist of the Hunt, The Historic New Orleans Collection, 2003.

346

Note: Marie Atkinson Hull was a beloved and well respected member of the community of talented artists centered around Jackson, Mississippi in the mid twentieth century. Trained at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts and Art Student League, she married a Jackson architect and pursued her painting career. Hull’s still life Southern flowers, as represented by this charming painting of Japanese magnolia in full bloom, proved to be popular among her local collectors. A believer in art as a continuous learning process, Hull’s paintings evolved over time as she embraced the modernist movement. W denotes the lot is illustrated at www.nealauction.com

Note: Born into a prominent French Louisiana family, Marion Sims Souchon was a wellrespected surgeon at Hotel-Dieu, but his enduring passion was painting. A self-taught artist, Souchon favored bright expressive colors, strong thick brushwork and an inclination toward modernism. In this painting, Souchon depicts a lively dancer, encircled by a group of admirers. 374.

Southern School, late 19th c., “Cotton Picker on a Fence”, oil on canvas, unsigned, 20 in. x 15 3/8 in., in a giltwood frame. $1200/1800 Note: This surprisingly sophisticated pose is a close adaptation of that of Astronomy by Giambologna (Flemish/ Italian, 1529-1608). The gender of that famous bronze of c. 1575, in the Kunsthistorisches Museum, Vienna, is feminine; an even closer prototype is Apollo for the “Studiolo” of Francesco I de’ Medici, in the Palazzo Vecchio in Florence ,which demonstrates an exact reversal of the same but with masculine attributes. Since both bronzes are among the most celebrated works of Giambologna, a print or photograph of either one might well have inspired the adventurous artist of this work.

Note: Charles Reinike attended the Graham School of Art in his native New Orleans. After completion of his studies, he opened his own art school in 1927, The New Orleans Art League. It eventually became the New Orleans School of Art, and finally the Reinike Gallery. The artist’s son, Charles Reinike III, reminisced about this particular painting, “It is a view from our second floor porch at our home at 1130 Third St. looking toward the corner of Third and Camp Streets. Not sure when this was painted, but I would guess in the late 1940’s or early 1950’s. I spent many a night on that porch watching the stars or the street below as a child. Even slept on that porch in the summer.”

Exhibited in the “John Kelly Fitzpatrick Retrospective Exhibition” organized by The Montgomery Museum of Art, September 1 to November 1, 1970, listed in exhibition catalogue as no. 25. Note: In the Spring of 1926, John Kelly Fitzpatrick opened an exhibition of his paintings to the public at the “Morning View” home and garden of his friend and patron. The talented young artist had just returned from service in France during World War I and had embarked on a career as an artist. As an active member of the local art community, Fitzpatrick was instrumental in establishing the Alabama Art League, the Montgomery Museum of Art, and the Dixie Summer Art Colony.

378

Working in the tradition of the American Scene Movement, Fitzpatrick was continually inspired by the landscape, people and lifestyle of rural Alabama. Employing lush, thick brushwork and a rich, colorful palette, he creates an enchanting view of the fountain and blooming gardens at “Morning View.” Reference: Gay, Mae Belle, John Kelly Fitzpatrick Retrospective Exhibition, exhibition catalogue, The Montgomery Museum of Fine Arts, 1970.

As a youth, he studied architectural engineering at Louisiana State University while simultaneously taking art classes. Fellow Mississippian Marie Atkinson Hull was an early artistic influence on Bucci, and at seventeen, he began studying with her weekly. She eventually became his mentor and champion.

381

382

Bucci’s first show was at the Mississippi Art Colony at Allison’s Wells in Way, Mississippi in 1947. Taking advantage of his tour of duty in Paris during WWII, he studied at the prestigious Académie Julian. He continued his studies stateside at the Art Institute of Chicago, and Parson’s School of Design before settling in Washington DC and working for the National Meteorological Center in Maryland. Among various other achievements, Bucci had the distinction of designing a United States Postal Service Stamp and was honored with the 2009 Mississippi Arts Commission Governor’s Award for Excellence in the Arts. Currently in his eighties, Bucci continues to paint. His work can be found in The Corcoran Museum of Art, New Orleans Museum of Art, the Mississippi Museum of Art, and other public and private collections. In 2007 he donated his work and ephemera to the Smithsonian Institution. Black, Patti Carter. Art in Mississippi 1720-1980. Hong Kong: C & C Offset Printing Company, 1998, p. 244

Note: In Kohlmeyer’s paintings from the 1960s, she often expanded her geometric style into more organic forms that seem to expand from a central point towards the edge of the canvas. These radiating, concentric works are somewhat similar to Georgia O’Keeffe’s series of flower paintings and therefore have been compared thematically to O’Keeffe’s overt representations of female sexuality and genitalia. While some of Kohlmeyer’s works, such as Contained, 1969, illustrated in Michael Plante’s book Ida Kohlmeyer: Systems of Color, are more overtly sexual and comparable to O’Keeffe’s paintings, the present lot is more stylized, focusing slightly more on the geometric side of Kohlmeyer’s earlier works.
