Provenance The Estate of N. David Scotti, Providence, Rhode Island N. David (Nino) Scotti (1941-2008) As a teenager, Nino Scotti began attending estate auctions with his mother. These trips no doubt inspired a love of history and its artifacts, and he joined the Rhode Island Historical Society at the young age of 14. With a voracious appetite for reading, a great memory and a discerning eye, he was self-taught in the areas of the China Trade, American silver, and maritime paintings. A tireless researcher, he possessed an extensive knowledge of Rhode Island history and genealogy. While still a young man, Nino and an associate founded Associated Appraisers, Inc., in downtown Providence, where they conducted estate auctions attended by dealers and wealthy clients. According to his obituary in the Providence Journal, Nino's “acerbic banter” was a highlight of the auctions held there, and he “prided himself on being able to conduct, with gavel in hand, what were usually twelve- or fourteen-hour auctions with nary a break and only a sip or two of ginger ale,” a fact corroborated by a number of Skinner buyers. Additionally, “he was generous with his expertise, examining and appraising antiques and artifacts.” Recalls Stephen Fletcher, "When Bob Skinner and I saw Nino entering the gallery, we could count on having an interesting and lively conversation about the things we had in common--antiques and art. We respected and admired his diverse knowledge and valued him as a friend and colleague" and are pleased to be offering his collection at Skinner.

Literature: See The Magazine Antiques, “Mary Balch’s Newport Sampler” by Betty Ring, September 1983, pp. 500-507. This sampler is similar in style to a group of samplers stitched in the last half of the 18th century by girls in the Newport, Rhode Island, area, including one worked by eleven year old Mary Balch, who went on to instruct girls in needlework in Providence, Rhode Island. Ring writes on p. 500, “The style was fully developed by 1767...distinguished by a composition of horizontal bands containing pictorial motifs and inscriptions, with wide floral borders along the sides and a cartouche at the bottom containing the needleworker’s name, birth date, and the date of the sampler. There is generally at least one bird in the top border, or playful people with animals, and one of the horizontal bands, usually second from the top, contains naturalistic strawberries. The pictorial motifs almost invariably include richly dressed figures with friendly pets, oversize birds and insects...and a building often worked in blue.” The sampler offered here is illustrated on p. 507, and the lot includes the magazine and a conservation report. $7,000-9,000

254. William Bradford (American, 1823-1892) Arctic Sunset with the Ice-Bound Panther. Signed and dated [18]75 l.r. Oil on artist’s board, 9 x 13 3/4 in., in original ornate giltgesso frame. Condition: Very good, uncleaned, light scratch on left, minor craquelure, frame rub upper and left edges. Provenance: A note affixed to the reverse of the frame is inscribed: “For Minnie Ida Reynolds/Painted by Wm Bradford for my New Year’s present-/Jan. 1st 1876.” Provenance: According to family lore, this painting passed from Minnie Reynolds through the family to the present owner. Minnie Ida (Conant) Reynolds (1867-1952) was the daughter of Prelet Drake Conant (Sept. 23, 1833-March 23, 1900) and Jane Monroe Rounds (1825-December 16, 1905), a wealthy socialite couple living in Fall River, Massachusetts. Prelet was involved in insurance, real estate, and stocks and was a justice of the peace. He was one of the directors of Laurel Lake Mills, a textile mill in Fall River, which operated from 1881 to 1931. Jane was a patroness of the arts and she hosted gatherings with local artists, including William Bradford. Even as a child, Minnie greatly enjoyed and appreciated art, so much so that at a New Year’s party held by her mother on January 1, 1876, William Bradford gave her a painting of his as a gift. Minnie was only eight years old at the time. Minnie later married Ralph Reynolds. They never had any children, and Minnie doted on her grand-nephew William Sidney Bateman, Jr. (18991967), the grandson of her sister Mary Jane Conant Neill. On her death, Minnie bequeathed her William Bradford painting to him, who passed it down to the present consignor. Note: William Bradford began his career painting ship portraits in New Bedford, Massachusetts, across the harbor from his birthplace of Fairhaven. In 1861 he traveled to Labrador to study and paint icebergs. He returned to the Arctic several times, and in 1869, he set out on his most ambitious voyage. With the financial backing of a New York businessman, Bradford chartered his own bark, the Panther, a converted sealing vessel and enlisted the help of two Boston photographers who documented the trip, while he sketched and painted. The result was hundreds of sketches and more than 300 photographs of arctic scenes, 141 of which were included in his 1873 book, The Arctic Regions, published in London. His body of work that resulted from his Arctic voyages gained Bradford worldwide acclaim, so much so that Queen Victoria commissioned him to paint an Arctic scene that was shown at the Royal Academy in 1875. Afterward, he traveled extensively giving lectures and slide shows about the Arctic. He eventually opened a studio San Francisco to paint the natural wonders of the American West, but it is his Arctic scenes that remain his legacy. $80,000-100,000
