771 Constantino Brumidi (Italian/American, 1805-1880) Study for George Washington with Jefferson and Hamilton, c. 1872. Unsigned. Oil on canvas, dia. 14 x 12 1/4 in., unframed. Condition: Relined, restretched, varnished. Provenance: According to a January 1975 Sotheby Parke Bernet catalog (sale 3720), this painting was previously owned by Mrs. E. Crane Chadbourne, of New York. It was offered at auction there as Lot 522. Literature: Barbara Wolanin, Constantino Brumidi: Artist of the Capitol (U.S. Government Printing Office, Washington, D.C., 1998), p. 112. Note: In the late summer of 1852, artist Constantino Brumidi arrived in New York City from Italy, an expatriate artist of great skill and experience. Many of his fresco series in the classical style adorned public buildings, baroque-era residences, and churches throughout Rome, though it was to be his works in America that would define his career. Born in 1805, Brumidi began studying art at a young age, and continued his education under such 19th century luminaries (and classically trained artists) as Antonio Canova and Bertel Thorwaldsen. As early as 1840, scholar Barbara Wolanin tells us, Brumidi was doing public work at the Vatican, restoring 16th century frescoes in the Vatican’s Third Loggia. Throughout the 1840s, Brumidi worked steadily, building his resume and receiving acclaim.

Political winds in Italy shifted in the late 1840s, and a series of unfortunate events landed Brumidi in jail as a revolutionary. After some legal maneuverings, his sentence was commuted in March of 1852, and he left for the United States as a refugee half a year later, arriving in New York. There he worked regularly for two years, as his reputation grew. Late December of 1854 was the turning point in his career, Wolanin says, when he met Captain Montgomery C. Meigs, who was overseeing the ongoing construction and decoration at the United States Capitol building, in Washington, D.C. (Wolanin, p. 49). The Captain, knowing Brumidi’s talents, gave the artist an opportunity: to paint a fresco in what was to become the Agriculture Committee’s room, as a trial. Brumidi’s work on that fresco was a great success by all accounts, and as a result Meigs and the design group at the Capitol employed him steadily thereafter. Over the next quarter century, Brumidi would establish and cement his reputation as the “Artist of the Capitol.” Among the many works he created was a fresco in a lunette on the south wall in what is now known as the Senate Reception Room, showing the first president George Washington and his top cabinet members, Alexander Hamilton and Thomas Jefferson. Wolanin writes of and shows Brumidi’s sketches and studies for this work, which was originally intended to be one work in a series which showed each of the early presidents. Wolanin reports that the figure of Hamilton in Brumidi’s slightly rearranged first efforts was instead second president John Adams. Nevertheless, the Brumidi submitted an oil sketch for the current scene sometime after August 1872, which was accepted and subsequently followed closely when he executed the fresco. The present lot is very likely that sketch. $8,000-12,000

Lincoln obtained a piece of that rail after the convention, and had three keepsakes (a cane, a mallet, and this cup) made for Mr. Ira Haworth, a delegate at the convention and friend of Lincoln. Upon his death in 1909, Mr. Haworth passed the cup to his niece, Mrs. Pearl Bartle, the owner at the time of the article’s writing. $3,000-5,000

Note: A copy of a typewritten and undated note that has remained with the piece for some time reads, “The little brown ‘Rum Jug’ with a face was found on the HarrisonHamilton Plantation, 12 miles to the South of Fernandina Beach, Florida about 1950. The Plantation was a Spanish land grant to the Harrison-Hamilton families during the 1700s and maintained until 1860 approximately 500 slaves. Charles Engles, of Bushnell, Florida sets an age of 200 years and states that ‘without doubt it came to the plantation either with a slave trader from the Carribbean [sic] or in the possession of a slave. The present glaze is the origional [sic].’” While the HarrisonHamilton family provenance is likely accurate, recent scholarship puts the year of origin of this jug somewhere closer to 1870, made in the tradition of other, slightly earlier jugs known to have been made by slaves. $4,000-6,000

The reserve is a confidential minimum price agreed upon by the consignor and Skinner, Inc. below which the lot will not be sold. In most cases, the reserve will be set below the estimated range, but in no case will it exceed the estimates listed. A representative of Skinner, Inc. will execute such reserves by bidding for the consignor. In any event and whether or not a lot is subject to a reserve, the auctioneer may reject any bid or raise not commensurate with the value of such lot. 2. All property is sold “as is,� and neither the auctioneer nor any consignor makes any warranties or representation of any kind or nature with respect to the property, and in no event shall they be responsible for the correctness, nor deemed to have made any representation or warranty, of description, genuineness, authorship, attribution, provenance, period, culture, source, origin, or condition of the property and no statement made at the sale, or in the bill of sale, or invoice or elsewhere shall be deemed such a warranty of representation or an assumption of liability. 3. Except as provided in paragraph 1 above, the highest bidder as determined by the auctioneer shall be the purchaser. In the case of a disputed bid, the auctioneer shall have sole discretion in determining the purchaser and may also, at his or her election, withdraw the lot or reoffer the lot for sale. The auctioneer shall have sole discretion to refuse any bid, or refuse to acknowledge any bidder. Any bidder that plans on spending in excess of $100,000 should make arrangements with the accounting department at least five (5) days in advance of the sale, as a deposit may be required to participate. 4. All merchandise purchased must be paid for and removed from the premises the day of the auction.

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.

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.
