In her monograph on Sonntag, Nancy Dustin Wall Moure describes a change in Sonntag’s style around 1870, in which the artist moved away from the broad vistas and large canvases of his “classic” style of the 1860s toward more intimate scenes and smaller size canvases with more poetic handling. The change may have been influenced in part by the Barbizon painters, whose works had been introduced to America by William Morris Hunt in the 1860s and had found favor with collectors. Sonntag’s color palette also changed during this period, assuming a more limited range that coincided with his interest in portraying the atmospheric effects of sunrises, sunsets, moonlight, and misty weather. During and after the Civil War, Sonntag no longer painted his former haunts of Virginia and Kentucky, but turned to New Hampshire and the White Mountains for inspiration, spending summers in the area of Shelburne on the Androscoggin River.1 Interestingly, the back of the frame of this painting is inscribed “Shelburn [sic], N.H.” 1.

317. John F. Francis (American, 1808-1886) Elaborate Still Life with Melons and Fruit on a Marble Slab Signed and dated “J. F. Francis P. 1858.” l.r. Oil on canvas, 25 x 30 1/4 in. (63.5 x 76.9 cm), framed. Condition: Puncture l.l., paint loss, canvas deformation, craquelure, surface grime. Provenance: A New England estate. N.B. John F. Francis was born in 1808 in Philadelphia, and lived and worked in Pennsylvania. Little is known about his art training, although he began his career as a portrait painter in the 1830s and 1840s. He turned to still life painting in the early 1850s and, during the next thirty years, became one of the most accomplished still life painters of the 19th century, establishing himself as “the master of luncheon and dessert pictures.”1 Francis was interested in the ordering of shapes and in expressing the individual, tactile qualities of the objects he depicted. His still lifes range from simple table-top studies to elaborate compositions with fruits, nuts, cheeses, baskets, serving pieces of glass, ceramic, and metal, and various utensils, set usually against a simple background but occasionally with a view through to a landscape on one side. In After the Hunt, Alfred Frankenstein wrote that Francis used a very limited repertoire of items in his still lifes and often repeated motifs, making his paintings difficult to date. Frankenstein further noted that dated paintings were somewhat rare, citing only twelve dated examples from 1854 to 1879 among the oeuvre known to him at that time.2 In the painting at hand, one of his more elaborate, Francis employed some of his favorite motifs, the rough-cut watermelon, various fruits opened or quartered, and a fruit basket draped with a fringed napkin. 1.

343. Fausto Zonaro (Italian/Turkish, 1854-1929) Torre de Leandro/A View of Salacak and Kiz Kulesi [Leander’s Tower], Istanbul, Turkey Signed “F. Zonaro” l.l. Oil on canvas, 15 3/4 x 26 in. (40.0 x 66.0 cm), framed. Condition: Losses, craquelure, re-stretched. Provenance: Gift to Georg Ruckmann (1870-1961) of Lübeck, Germany, from a doctor that fled to Turkey before World War I; by family descent to a private New England collection. Ruckmann was an administrator of a hospital in Lübeck. N.B. The authenticity of this work has been confirmed by Erol Makzume, and the work was documented in Elisa Zonaro’s photo archives. We wish to thank both Erol Makzume and Cesare Mario Trevigne for their assistance with cataloguing the lot. Zonaro was born into a Paduan family of modest means, and had he not shown artistic promise as a child, would have been apprenticed into his father’s bricklaying trade.1 He was fortunate to attend a technical school near his hometown, and was later sponsored by a local noblewoman to attend the Accademia Di Belle Arti G. B. Cignaroli in Verona for his artistic training. After graduation, Zonaro moved to Venice where he opened his own studio on the Grand Canal. He developed a fine reputation for picturesque views and genre scenes which was bolstered by ducal patronage. Despite his commercial success, Zonaro grew dissatisfied by the late 1880s with his lack of artistic growth and sought ways to distinguish himself from his contemporaries. At this juncture, he made two critical decisions—the first was to take a year-long sabbatical in Paris to learn new techniques. Zonaro’s works created after this intensive year are considered to be in his mature style, where “the product of his training in French Impressionism, Venetian coloring, and Neapolitan realism were fused.”2 Zonaro’s second life-changing decision was to move to the city of Constantinople. He was fascinated with the exotic vision of this outpost of the Roman and Ottoman Empires, and opened a studio there in 1891. Through his skill and the promotional efforts of his wife and former pupil Elisabetta (Elisa) Pante Zonaro, he was introduced to the Ottoman Sultan Abdul Hamid II (1842-1918) who selected him as his court painter in 1896. Zonaro remained at the court until Abdul Hamid II’s regime was overthrown in 1909, and returned to Italy thereafter. 1. http://www.faustozonaro.it/biografia.html 2. Ibid.

N.B. N.C. Wyeth completed this painting in 1905 as a commission for the Saturday Evening Post. It is one of four illustrations done by Wyeth to accompany a story by Arthur E. McFarland, titled “An Antiente Greate Companie,” about the Hudson Bay Trading Company, which appeared in Volume 178, No. 20, on November 11, 1905. In a letter from N.C. Wyeth to his mother, dated October 1, 1905, the artist referred specifically to the painting at hand, saying “I have just completed a huge picture of the Cree Indians trading over the stockade with the early French, for the Post. It’s in full color and H.P. says it’s one of the most realistic pictures ever done in the school. You might know how I feel. Oh! if I only had time to paint what I have in my mind. I’ll do it some day.”1 “H.P.” refers to Howard Pyle (American 1853-1911), a noted and popular illustrator, writer, and teacher, called the “Father of American Illustration.” Wyeth studied with Pyle at his School of Illustration Art from 1902–1904 and remained one of Pyle’s life-long devoted students. 1.

441. Frederick Carl Frieseke (American, 1874-1939) Olive Trees, Cagnes Signed “F. C. Frieseke” l.l. Oil on canvas, 21 1/4 x 25 5/8 in. (54.0 x 65.0 cm), framed. Condition: Paint losses u.r., dent l.l. corner, rippling along bottom edge, small areas of craquelure, surface grime. N.B. Frederick Carl Frieseke is regarded as one of the leading American Impressionists. Born in Michigan, Frieseke began his studies at the Art Institute of Chicago and at the Art Students’ League in New York, before heading to France in 1897 where he would live for the rest of his life. He studied in Paris at the Academie Julian under Jean-Joseph Benjamin-Constant and Jean-Paul Lauren. He was influenced in his early work by J.A.M. Whistler, with whom he may have studied briefly, and also by the works of Monet and, more especially, Renoir. Frieseke rented a house in Giverny in 1906, and for the next 14 years he spent summers painting there with other expatriate artists drawn to the area by Monet. Following World War I, Frieseke left Giverny, settling instead in Normandy. Shifting away from Impressionism toward realism, Frieseke’s later paintings tend to have quieter palettes and contemplative moods. Frieseke received many prizes for his work, including a gold medal in Munich (1904), and both gold medals and a popular prize for his painting Torn Lingerie from the Chicago Art Institute (1920).  The painting at hand will be included in The Frederick Carl Frieseke Catalogue Raisonné, being prepared by Nicholas Kilmer with the support of the Hollis Taggart Galleries. A letter to this effect from Mr. Kilmer accompanies the lot. The painting will be dated “by 1920.” The landscape setting is Cagnes-sur-Mer along the Mediterranean coast of France near Nice. $50,000-70,000

An active exhibitor in the late 1880s through 1910, Loud showed her work at the Paris Salon of 1886, the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts, the Boston Art Club, the National Academy of Design, and the Art Institute of Chicago.1 May was married to Joseph Prince Loud, an architect trained at M.I.T. with a practice in Boston.2 In an abstract from an unpublished diary kept by both May Hallowell Loud and her husband in 1910, the couple’s address was listed as 82 Pinckney Street. The diary provides a glimpse into the daily life of the couple, including attendance at committees, clubs, and many cultural events in Boston. May, who was also known as Maria, described working in their home studio and sometimes mentioned specific projects, such as designing a poster for the Visiting Nurse Association or starting a new pastel portrait. She noted that a pastel was sent to an exhibit in Chicago on April 25, 1910. Both May and Joseph were interested in photography, and the diary refers to a darkroom as part of their home studio.3 1.

Provenance: A private Massachusetts collection. N.B. The drawing is rendered in the style of those Kent produced for publications such as Vanity Fair (circa 1916-1925) under the pseudonym Hogarth, Jr. These drawings, like the Th’ Avenue (Skinner Inc., May 21, 2010, Lot 483), were created as whimsical decorations to illustrate the satire of George S. Chappell. Unlike Th’ Avenue, which was created specifically for a satirical tale, this drawing, in reduced styling, served as one of several designs for the artist’s reverse paintings on glass known as “Hogarth mirrors”: used as headings for the elongated, vertical mirrors, framed by artist Max Kuehne. We wish to thank Scott R. Ferris for his kind assistance with cataloguing the lot. $2,000-2,500

Condition: Minor wear to deckled edges, toning. Provenance: A Florida estate to the present owner. N.B. Dasburg first arrived in Taos, New Mexico, in January 1918, at the invitation of Mabel Dodge Luhan, a wealthy patron and avant-garde literary bohemian.1 Over the next decade and a half, Dasburg split his time between Woodstock, New York, and Taos, and in 1935, chose to reside near Taos full-time. The present work shows the influences of two important modernists on both sides of the Atlantic—Paul Cezanne, whose works Dasburg first encountered in 1909 while living in Paris; and John Marin, whom he was introduced to in New York and befriended in Taos over the summers of 1929 and 1930.2 Though Dasburg worked in a variety of media, ink and pastel are considered by many to be his most engaging, as they showcase his skill in creating rhythmic lines. 1.

Pastel and tempera on paper, sheet size 27 1/2 x 39 5/8 in. (69.8 x 100.6 cm), framed. Condition: Tack holes to corners, minor smudges to the reverse. Provenance: A private New England collection. N.B. Tancredi was born in Feltre, a remote Northern Italian town in the foothills of the Dolomite Mountains. In his late teens, he headed south to the coastal metropolis of Venice where he attended the Accademia di Belle Arti. Tancredi had already exhibited at galleries in both Venice and Rome, including the Galleria Nazionale d’Arte Moderna, when he met Peggy Guggenheim in Venice in 1954.1 Guggenheim became his patron by providing him with studio space and exhibiting his work in her palazzo.2 He first exhibited in the United States in 1958 at the Saidenberg Gallery in New York, and continued to exhibit in solo and group shows in Europe, including the 1964 Venice Biennale. Tancredi was associated with the Movimento Spaziale, a group founded by Lucio Fontana, who believed that “matter should be transformed into energy and invade space in a dynamic form.”3 Unlike Fontana, who chose to break up the pictorial plane by cutting into his supports, Tancredi maintained the integrity of his paper and canvas supports and instead focused on compositions which threatened to float, spill, or explode into the viewer’s space. 1) http://www.guggenheim.org/new-york/collections/collection-online/show-full/bio/?artist_name=Tancredi%20(Tancredi%20Parmeggiani)&page=5&f=Name&cr=43 2) Ibid. 3) “Spazialismo,” In Grove Art Online, Oxford Art Online, http://www.oxfordartonline.com/subscriber/article/grove/art/T080465 (accessed December 26, 2010).

Provenance: Collection of Larom B. and Barbara Munson; private Massachusetts collection. N.B. Twombly’s first solo exhibition including sculpture was at The Little Gallery in Princeton, New Jersey, from October 25 to November 7, 1953. Larom B. Munson was the director and manager of The Little Gallery from 1947 to 1962, and Twombly was introduced to Munson through a mutual friend, Tom B. Wilber of Schenectady, New York. In a letter dated July 6 and 7, 1953, Wilber relays his conversation with Twombly to Munson regarding the scope of the show—“He then is planning a show with you in October as we planned. His NY show is planned for November, but the things will be different. I have talked him into picking things from everything he has now. He is going to make it as diversified as possible, some expressionist things he did in 1949, into semi-cubist abstractions into abstract expressionism into pure abstraction. He is going to include…a couple sculptures…The choice will be tremendously diversified.”1 Wilber further points to The Little Gallery’s small exhibition space and the monumental size of Twombly’s recent work as reasons for assembling a retrospective show.2 The present work, which had been in the Munson family collection until 1995 and was referred to by Barbara Munson as “my Twombly which doesn’t look like the work which he is famous for,” is believed to have been purchased from Twombly in this show. 1.
