Two Oval Bas Relief Portrait Plaques: Thomas Couture, 1848 and Profile of a Woman in a Ruffled Cap, Thought to be Jane Maria Leavitt Hunt, 1841 Both monogrammed “WMH” and dated in the bronze, Couture titled l.c., Leavitt stamped “THE HENRY-BONNARD BRONZE CO./ FOUNDERS. N-Y. 1898.” l.r., incised “Jemima Leavitt/Married Jan. 1st, 1800” on the reverse. Bronze with brown patina, oval format, sizes to 10 3/8 x 7 5/8 in. (26.3 x 19.5 cm), with applied hanging rings. Condition: Dust and dirt to the interstices, Couture with minor wear to the patina. Provenance: By descent within the artist’s family. N.B. The female portrait is thought by the family to be Jane Maria Leavitt Hunt (18011877), the artist’s mother, although the incised notation on the reverse, scratched into the bronze in a later hand, names the sitter as “Jemima Leavitt/Married Jan. 1st, 1800.” Jemima Loomis Leavitt (d. 1846) was the artist’s maternal grandmother, and a marriage date of 1800 would seem likely, given that Jane, her oldest child, was born in 1801. The male portrait is the painter Thomas Couture, with whom William Morris Hunt studied in Paris from 1846 to 1852. $1,500-2,000

N.B. The sitter was the wife of Walter Hines Page, one-time ambassador to Great Britain and partner in the publishing firm of Doubleday, Page, and Co. John Singer Sargent remained in great demand throughout his career as a portrait artist for the leading individuals of his day. Over time, Sargent came to prefer making charcoal drawings of his subjects. He could complete these portraits relatively quickly, often in one sitting, and the medium was very well suited both to his technical virtuosity and his adeptness at capturing his subject. Between 1910 and 1925 Sargent made over 500 such portrait drawings, while limiting his oil portraits to under thirty.1 1.

656 Harry Bertoia (American, 1915-1978) Maquette for the MIT Kresge Chapel Altar Screen, c. 1950-1955 Unsigned. Welded, painted, and gilt metal, 24 x 9 3/4 x 4 5/8 in. (61.0 x 24.8 x 11.7 cm), mounted to a hardwood base. Condition: Very minor oxidation, minor surface grime. Provenance: Collection of Robert Bradford Newman (1917-1983), professor of architectural acoustics at Massachusetts Institute of Technology School of Architecture and the Harvard Graduate School of Design, and principal of Bolt, Beranek and Newman Inc., Cambridge, Massachusetts. The present work is a maquette for one of the earliest commissioned site-specific architectural sculptures created by Bertoia for his friend and Cranbrook colleague, Eero Saarinen.

The Kresge Chapel at MIT was completed by Eero Saarinen and Associates in 1955, and a key feature of the Chapel’s design is an oculus window which illuminates an otherwise windowless and cylindrical building. Saarinen commissioned Bertoia to create a monumental work to complement this direct and elevating light source, befitting a sacred space. Bertoia created a floor-to-ceiling altar screen of vertical rods and gilt-metal plates, which gleam and dematerialize in natural and electric light. The Kresge Auditorium and Chapel would not have their unconventional forms without the collaboration of the acoustical engineering firm of Bolt, Beranek and Newman. The firm comprised a physicist, electrical engineer, and architect, respectively. Newman was the firm’s youngest principal, having served as a teaching assistant to Dr. Richard Bolt, and obtained his MArch from MIT in 1949.1 Saarinen felt that the Auditorium’s form should not simply serve its function, but have a “meaningful relation to its site and neighbors.”2 Saarinen defended his Auditorium’s spherical form against the more conventional shoebox form by arguing that its shape created a feeling of shelter and inclusivity, and that a building of progressive design, acoustic technology and materials befit a progressive university. To break up the “unusual resonances” of a domed ceiling, Bolt, Beranek and Newman innovated an acoustical ‘cloud’ system of sound-reflective ceiling panels.

The Chapel was designed, in Saarinen’s words, “in both opposition and harmony” to the Auditorium, and intended to complete a hub of civic and cultural life on campus. Saarinen defended its windowless cylinder form against critics by stating that it “implied the self-contained, inward-feeling which was desirable” for a non-denominational place of worship, and that its undulating interior walls were acoustically necessary and emphasized “an enclosed feeling.”3 Bolt, Beranek and Newman acoustically designed the Chapel for both small instrumental groups, as well as the pipe organ installed above the entrance to the chapel. 4 1.

If the purchaser breaches any of its obligations under these Conditions of Sale, including its obligation to pay in full the purchase price of all items for which it was the highest successful bidder, Skinner Inc. may exercise all of its rights and remedies under the law including, without limitation, (a) canceling the sale and applying any payments made by the purchaser to the damages caused by the purchaser’s breach, and/or (b) offering at public auction, without reserve, any lot or item for which the purchaser has breached any of its obligations, including its obligation to pay in full the purchase price, holding the purchaser liable for any deficiency plus all costs of sale. 7. In no event will the liability of Skinner, Inc. to any purchaser with respect to any item exceed the purchase price actually paid by such purchaser for such item. 8. Shipping is the responsibility of the purchaser. Upon request, our staff will provide the list of shippers who deliver to destinations within the United States and overseas. Some property that is sold at auction can be subject to laws governing export from the U.S., such as items that include material from some endangered species. Import restrictions from foreign countries are subject to these same governing laws. Granting of licensing for import or export of goods from local authorities is the sole responsibility of the buyer. Denial or delay of licensing will not constitute cancellation or delay in payment for the total purchase price of these lots. 9. All purchases are subject to the Massachusetts 6.25% sales tax unless the purchaser possesses a Massachusetts sales tax exemption number. Exemption numbers from other states are accepted in Massachusetts if presented with a business card or letterhead. Dealers, museums, and other qualifying parties can apply for a Massachusetts exemption number prior to the auction by contacting the Massachusetts Department of Corporations and Taxation at 100 Cambridge Street in Boston. 10. A premium equal to 23% of the final bid price up to and including $100,000, plus 20% of the final bid price from $100,001 up to and including $1,000,000, plus 12% of the final bid price from $1,000,001 and over will be applied to each lot sold, to be paid by the buyer as part of the purchase price. 11. Bidding on any item indicates your acceptance of these terms and all other terms printed within, posted, and announced at the time of sale whether bidding in person, through a representative, by phone, by Internet, or other absentee bid. 12. Skinner, Inc. and its consignors make no warranty or representation, express or implied, that the purchaser will acquire any copyright or reproduction rights to any lot sold. Skinner, Inc. expressly reserves the right to reproduce any image of the lots sold in this catalog. The copyright in all images, illustrations and written material produced by or for Skinner, Inc. relating to a lot, including the contents of this catalog, is, and shall remain at all times, the property of Skinner, Inc. and shall not be used by the purchaser, nor by anyone else, without our prior written consent. 13. These conditions of sale shall be governed by the laws of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts (excluding the laws applicable to conflicts or choice of law). The buyer/bidder agrees that any suit for the enforcement of this agreement may be brought, and any action against Skinner in connection with the transactions contemplated by this agreement shall be brought, in the courts of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts or any federal court sitting therein. The bidder/buyer consents to the exclusive jurisdiction of such courts and waives objections that it may now or hereafter have to the venue of any such suit.
