359 William Bradford (American, 1823-1892) Fishing Off Labrador Signed and dated “Wm Bradford/61� l.r. Oil on canvas stretched over panel, 18 x 30 in. (46.0 x 76.0 cm), framed. Condition: Lined, retouch, craquelure. N.B. William Bradford, one of the preeminent Marine painters of the 19th century, was born and raised near the harbor town of New Bedford, Massachusetts. Against the wishes of his strict Quaker parents, he pursued a career in painting. Initially self-taught, Bradford began to study with Dutch painter Albert Van Beest in the late 1850s, and the two artists frequently collaborated.

Starting in 1861, Bradford made a series of trips to Labrador and the Arctic, where he was profoundly influenced by the bright light and vivid colors of the area. By 1868 Bradford had managed seven trips to the Arctic. His paintings of that region contain rich detail in sailing vessels and fishermen while, at the same time, capture the expressiveness of the clouds, water, and ice formations. This rich scenery and atmospheric light remained a constant source of inspiration for Bradford throughout his career. $15,000-25,000

370 John Singleton Copley (American, 17371815) Portrait of Rebecca Dudley Gerrish, c. 1763-66 Unsigned, identified on loan labels from the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, affixed to the frame backing. Oil on canvas, 30 x 25 in. (76.0 x 63.4 cm), framed. Condition: Lined, scattered retouch, craquelure. Provenance: Direct descent from the sitter to her great-niece, Mrs. Henry Bradlee (Hephsibah Hall, b. 1821), by 1893; to her son-in-law Edward N. Fenno; to his daughter Mrs. Arthur W. Bell by 1950; to her cousin John Brooks Fenno; through to the current owner by family descent. N.B. The portrait is accompanied by an expert opinion written by Theodore E. Stebbins, Jr., dated July 24, 2013, confirming the attribution to John Singleton Copley and suggesting the date of the mid-1760s, when, by various commissions, Copley painted a small group of portraits of mature, handsome women in Boston. Dr. Stebbins writes that the Gerrishes were well-known patrons of Copley. The portrait of Rebecca Dudley Gerrish is clearly a pendant to one of her husband, Benjamin Gerrish, painted probably five years after hers. The Benjamin Gerrish portrait descended in the Gerrish family and was listed and reproduced in the work of several Copley scholars, including the catalogue raisonné of the artist (Jules Prown, 1966, no 313). Mrs. Gerrish’s portrait, which descended in the Dudley line, had not been seen by mid-20th century scholars, but was listed in Prown’s catalogue raisonné among the attributed pictures, based on its mention in a 1913 history of the family of Captain John Gerrish by Arthur Eaton.

John Singleton Copley is one of the most beloved American artists. Largely self taught, Copley was a sought-after portrait painter among the elite in colonial Boston. He painted likenesses with objective accuracy and powerful insight. He could masterfully convey every detail of his sitter’s costume, making palpable the sheen of satin, the delicacy of lace, the richness of damask and pearls, and could capture reflections in highly polished wood. More importantly Copley used these elements to reinforce the sense of the sitter’s character. The combined effect was such that John Adams wrote of Copley’s portraits “...you can scarcely help discoursing with them, asking questions and receiving answers.” 1 However, a man of ambition and intellect, Copley was not content to remain a provincial portrait painter. Portraiture, while lucrative, in his view lay closer to craft than high art. Nor did he feel that colonial Americans had great appreciation for the fine arts. Copley aspired to the elevated role of History Painter, and in Europe he saw the opportunity to learn from the Old Masters and to broaden his subject matter for more sophisticated audiences. Copley left Boston for England in 1774 to pursue his career (and, some say, to avoid the instability of the political situation). He found continued success abroad, and he never returned to America. 1. Virgil Barker, American Painting, History and Interpretation (New York: Macmillan, 1950), p. 134.

399 David Howard Hitchcock (American, 18611943) Big Island of Hawaii Signed and inscribed “D. HOWARD HITCHCOCK H.I.” l.l. Oil on canvas, 14 1/4 x 20 1/4 in. (36.0 x 51.0 cm), frame probably of koa wood. Condition: Lined, scattered retouch. Provenance: Descended within a Hawaiian family. N.B. Native Hawaiian artist David Howard Hitchcock was born at Hilo in 1861. His earliest formal training was under Jules Tavernier, who traveled to Hilo in 1885 with fellow landscape painter Joseph Strong (1852-1899). Hitchcock joined the two artists on a sketching expedition to Kilauea volcano, which instilled in the young Hitchcock a love of painting as well as a special attachment to the forms and varied light qualities of volcanoes.

In fact Hitchcock and Tavernier, along with Charles Furneaux (1835-1913), became known locally as the “Volcano School.” Tavernier became Hitchcock’s life-long mentor and encouraged him to pursue formal training, both at the California School of Design and at the Académie Julian in Paris. Hitchcock was said to be the first Hawaii-born painter to receive formal art training in Paris. After his academic training, Hitchcock returned to Hawaii and continued to paint the landscape, gaining popularity and critical acclaim for his ability to capture the effects of tropical light. He had studios in Hilo and later Honolulu, and he traveled to and painted all the islands. He also played a major role in the development of the artistic community of Hawaii, helping found the Kilohana Art League and the Honolulu Art Society. $15,000-20,000

420 Emil Carlsen (Danish/American, 1853-1932) Early October, alternately titled Wood Interior Signed “Emil. Carlsen.” l.l., inscribed, dated, and signed “Painted at Ogunquit/Early October 1919./Emil. Carlsen./February 8th 1923” on the reverse, identified on labels from William Macbeth, New York, on the back of the frame and The Cooley Gallery, Old Lyme, Connecticut, on the frame backing. Oil on canvas, 20 1/4 x 16 in. (51.5 x 40.5 cm), in a period frame. Condition: Stable craquelure. Provenance: Descended within a Massachusetts family.

N.B. Still life and impressionist landscape painter Emil Carlsen was born in Copenhagen, Denmark, and first studied architecture at the Danish Royal Academy. At the age of nineteen, he left Denmark for the United States, working as an architectural draftsman and assistant to the Danish marine painter Laurits B. Holst in Chicago. In 1875, he traveled to Paris to paint and study, immersing himself in the still life paintings of Jean Baptiste Siméon Chardin (1699-1779) which would greatly inspire his own work. Back in the U.S. he lived in New York and Boston, befriending fellow painters such as John Francis Murphy and Childe Hassam, linking him to some of the best known American Impressionists. From 1884 to 1886, Carlsen returned to Paris, where his palette lightened. In 1887 he was called to direct the School of Design in San Francisco, where he shared a studio with Arthur Matthews.

In the end Carlsen was not happy in California, noting a dearth of opportunities for sales and exhibitions, and in 1891 he returned permanently to the East Coast, living in New York and Connecticut. Dogged by poverty in his early years, Carlsen later enjoyed great financial success. He exhibited widely at the best venues of his day, and he was awarded many prizes, including gold medals at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts and the National Academy of Design. He was made a full member of the National Academy in 1906. Carlsen painted many landscapes from his residence in Falls Village, Connecticut, and along the coast of Ogunquit, Maine. Emil Carlsen showed at the Macbeth Gallery in New York from 1911 to 1932, including several solo shows, as well as group shows with Childe Hassam, Frederick Carl Frieseke, Theodore Robinson, Willard LeRoy Metcalf, and J. Alden Weir. $15,000-25,000

490 Irving Ramsey Wiles (American, 1861-1948) Sunlight in the Studio Signed and dated “Irving R. Wiles 1888” l.r., titled on a presentation plaque. Oil on canvas, 18 1/8 x 22 3/16 in. (46.0 x 56.3 cm), in a period frame. Condition: Lined, stable craquelure, mild surface grime. Exhibitions: Winter Exhibition, National Academy of Design, New York, December, 1888; World’s Columbian Exposition, Chicago, Illinois, May 1–October 30, 1893. N.B. Sunlight in the Studio was exhibited at the World’s Columbian Exposition in 1893 and is listed in the Fine Art exhibition checklist as cat. no. 1122 (Lent by Charles D. Miller, Jersey City). In a letter regarding this painting, Wiles scholar Geoffrey Fleming noted that the work had been described in detail in The Nation when it was first exhibited at the winter exhibition at the National Academy of Design in December, 1888, and was subsequently listed as having been exhibited at the World’s Columbian Exposition in several other sources. Wiles received a bronze medal at the World’s Columbian Exposition, but research thus far has not revealed which of his works was so honored. Wiles showed six oil paintings at the Exposition, among which was A Girl in Black, lent by William Merritt Chase, and The Sonata, lent by W.G. Evans of New York, the latter being illustrated in the official exposition art catalog, The Art Gallery Illustrated (p. 235).

The theme of a figure in an interior was favored by Wiles. In Sunlight in the Studio, golden light passes through the shaded window and falls on the reclining figure and on the accoutrements within the artist’s studio; the oriental rug and vase, silver samovar, handsome furnishings, as well as the overstuffed artist’s portfolio. The model in this painting was thought to be the artist’s wife, but Geoffrey Fleming has noted that at the time of this painting, May Wiles would have been about to give birth (or just given birth) to the couple’s only child, Gladys, so this may not be accurate. However, the true subject of the painting is revealed in its title.

Although portraiture was considered his forte, Wiles also painted the hills and shores of Long Island. In the late 1890s Wiles built a studio and cottage on the shores at Peconic, and he summered there regularly with his family. Here he found painting the out-of-doors a pleasant change from the bustle of portrait painting in the city.

Irving Ramsey Wiles was born in Utica, New York. He was introduced to painting by his father, artist Lemuel Wiles (1826-1905), but it was not until he studied at New York’s Art Students League under James Carroll Beckwith and William Merritt Chase that he determined to make his father’s profession his own. Chase became Wiles’s mentor, and the two men remained lifelong friends. After two years at the Art Students League (18791881), Wiles went on to Paris to study at the Académie Julian, perhaps at the suggestion of another of the League’s teachers, Thomas Wilmer Dewing. In Paris in 1882, Wiles also entered the atelier of Carolus-Duran, an influential teacher who counted John Singer Sargent among his pupils.

The lot is also accompanied by period books about the Exposition, including: Kurtz, Charles, ed., The Art Gallery Illustrated, Official Illustrations from the Art Gallery of the World’s Columbian Exposition (Philadelphia: George Barrie 1893); White, Trumbull and William Igleheart, The World’s Columbian Exposition (Philadelphia: World Publishing Company, 1893); The Official Directory of the World’s Columbian Exposition, A Reference Book (Chicago: W.B. Conkey Company, 1893); Official Guide to the World’s Columbian Exposition, compiled by John J. Flinn (Chicago: The Columbian Guide Company, 1893); and copies of other ephemera relating to the fair. $100,000-150,000

We wish to thank Geoffrey K. Fleming, Director of the Southold Historical Society and author of Irving Ramsay Wiles, N.A., 1861-1948: Portraits and Pictures, 1899-1948 for his kind assistance with the cataloging of this lot. A letter from Mr. Fleming accompanies the lot.

Like many of his late 19th-century contemporaries, Wiles used the “new” vitality of the Impressionist brush stroke and palette to express the beauty of the world around him. Not unlike Chase, Wiles was known for his dexterous and energized portraits, which often idealized his subjects by placing them in elegant attire and settings. Wiles often depicted his female subjects in white dresses. When set outdoors, they were frequently drenched in warm sunlight and dashed with blue brushstrokes of shadow, a technique regularly employed by Chase, as well as John Singer Sargent and Frank Weston Benson.

495 Frank Weston Benson (American, 18621951) Figure in White Signed and dated “F.W.BENSON.1890” l.r., identified on a presentation plaque, with two partial exhibition labels and a cardboard plaque reading “MEDAL/World’s Columbian Exposition” affixed to the back of the frame. Oil on canvas, 40 1/8 x 30 1/8 in. (102.0 x 76.5 cm), framed. Condition: Lined, minor old retouch to the left of the figure’s head, stable craquelure with areas of shrinking, surface accretions and grime. Provenance: Collection of the artist, passing to his children, then by donation to the Salem Public Library in 1957. N.B. Figure in White is a quintessential example of Boston School painting, showing a beautiful young woman at ease within a handsomely appointed interior setting. Frank Benson exhibited three oil paintings at the World’s Columbian Exposition in Chicago in 1893, in the prestigious, juried, fine arts exhibition that brought together contemporary works from around the world to hang in the Palace of Fine Arts. Among Benson’s works was one titled “Figure in White” which appeared as item 175 in the catalog. No dimensions were provided in the checklist, but, given the label on the back of the frame, it seems likely that the painting at hand could indeed be the same “Figure in White.”

The model for this painting is said to be the artist’s sister, Georgiana. Benson kept the painting for his collection, and according to Salem Library records, it hung in the dining room of his house in Salem, Massachusetts. Frank Benson had long-standing ties to the Salem Public Library, where he served as a Trustee from 1912 to his death in 1951. In 1957 the painting was given to the Trustees of the Salem Public Library by the artist’s children. Frank Benson was born into a prominent Salem family in 1862. He trained at the Académie Julian in Paris, where his work was greatly influenced by the contrasting light and dark palettes of master artists Vermeer and Velázquez. Upon returning stateside in 1885, he and fellow painter Edmund Tarbell became the leaders of the Boston School. Benson, Tarbell, and Joseph De Camp all taught at the Boston Museum School and influenced generations of artists. They formed the Boston nucleus of the Ten American Painters, which was comprised of both New York and Bostonbased Impressionists. Benson exhibited with The Ten between 1898 and 1919. Benson enjoyed a very successful career—he worked in an array of genres including portraiture, plein air, interiors, and still-life—and is perhaps best known for his portraits depicting his wife and three children. He was fascinated by the interplay of light and shadow and repeatedly used their effects to achieve both dramatic and aesthetically beautiful works. He maintained a consistent style in oil paintings throughout his career. An avid sportsman, Benson later focused on sporting subjects for his watercolors and etchings, but it is for his figural works that he is best known. $350,000-550,000

510 Boston School, 20th Century The Black Swan Unsigned. Oil on canvas, 39 1/2 x 35 1/2 in. (100.3 x 90.2 cm), framed. Condition: Craquelure, scattered losses, patch reinforcements on the reverse. Provenance: From a private New York collection. $2,000-3,000 511 Auguste Rodin (French, 1840-1917) or Camille Claudel (French, 1864-1943) Tête de rieur (Laughing Man), c. 1891-92 Signed or inscribed “A. Rodin” in the bronze on the left side of the neck, inscribed “·Alexis RUDIER·/Foudeur.Paris.” at the base of the back of the neck. Bronze with black patina, height approximately 6 1/2 in. (16.5 cm), depth 5 7/8 in. (15.0 cm), width 5 1/8 in. (13.0 cm), on a marble plinth. Condition: Dust and dirt to interstices. Provenance: Private Philadelphia collection, by descent to the current owner. N.B. The authorship of “Laughing Man” is an interesting puzzle. For close to 100 years, it has been attributed to Auguste Rodin. However, the sculpture has been seen in a new light following the research of Dr. Antoinette LeNormand-Romain for the catalogue raisonné of Rodin bronzes at the Musée Rodin in Paris (2007) and for her book Fateful Encounter that accompanied a traveling exhibition examining the relationship of Rodin and Camille Claudel in 2005.

510

LeNormand-Romain wrote that while at the time of Rodin’s death plasters in his studio were systematically ascribed to him, in fact several examples confirm that some plasters had been exchanged between the studios of Rodin and Camille Claudel as part of the normal working process, leading to misattribution. Some works probably by Claudel were later signed as Rodin, particularly when bronzes were being cast from plasters to fulfill the large order from Jules Mastbaum for the Rodin Museum in Philadelphia in 1925-26.1 LeNormand-Romain ascribed “Laughing Man” to Camille Claudel in Rodin et le bronze: catalogue des oeuvres conservées au Musée Rodin.2 It is interesting to note that in an earlier catalogue raisonné dedicated to the sculpture of Camille Claudel (Paris and La Chapelle, 1990), the authors specifically sited Rodin’s “Laughing Man” for its great similarity to the signed Claudel sculpture Tête de Rieuse (Cat. No. 23), establishing a link between the two works.3 1. Claudel, Camille, and Auguste Rodin, Camille Claudel & Rodin: Fateful Encounter (Paris: Hazan, 2005), pp. 66-67. 2.

538 Mario Carreño (Cuban, 1913-1999) Tropical Splendor Signed and dated “carreño -50” l.l., numbered and titled “#1163/...” on a partial label affixed to the stretcher. Oil on canvas, 24 x 34 in. (61.0 x 86.2 cm), framed. Condition: Small puncture l.l., faint stretcher bar marks, surface grime, minor abrasions. N.B. Mario Carreño was born in Havana, to a family of ten children. A precocious child, in 1922 as a nine year old, he won a drawing competition sponsored by the newspaper El Mundo. He gained entrance to Cuba’s San Alejandro Academy at the age of twelve. Six years later, in the face of volatile politics in Cuba, he left for Madrid, where he met Pablo Neruda and his intellectual circle. Neruda would be a life-long friend and lasting influence on the artist.

At the time of the Spanish Civil War, Carreño went to Mexico, where he worked with the great muralists of the period, including Diego Rivera, David Siqueiros, and José Orozco. This group provided inspiration and led Carreño to explore subject matter from his Latin American roots. From 1937 to 1939 Carreño was in Paris studying at the Académie Julian. He rubbed shoulders with the avant-garde painters of the period, including Picasso, and gained recognition for his work. To escape World War II, Carreño relocated to New York, where he taught at the New School for Social Research and showed with Perls Gallery. During this decade he turned toward more abstract painting, influenced by Mondrian, Pollock, and Moholy-Nagy. He experimented with geometric forms, though he never abandoned the figurative tradition entirely. Over the years his style varied between figurative, Cubist abstraction, and Surrealism, as he combined

the influence of international art movements with personal and Latin American themes. He returned frequently to Cuba in the 1950s, but politics again intervened. As a modern artist, he was considered a counterrevolutionary, his name was expunged from Cuban art programs, and his works were removed from public spaces. At the invitation of Pablo Neruda, Carreño had made a visit to Chile in 1948. He fell in love with Chile and chose to live there permanently, becoming a cultural leader in his adopted land. With colleagues he founded the Universidad Catolica’s School of Arts, taught, and created public art works. He became a citizen of Chile in 1969. He did return to Cuba in 1993, when the National Museum organized a retrospective exhibit of his work, and again in 1994 to sign prints for the Rene Portocarrero Graphic Workshop in Havana. $30,000-50,000

Exhibitions: Art on Paper, Weatherspoon Annual Exhibition, 1977, November 13– December 18, 1977, Weatherspoon Art Gallery, The University of North Carolina at Greensboro, cat. no 86 (illus.); The Eye of Stieglitz, Hirschl & Adler Galleries, New York, October 7–November 2, 1978, illustrated p. 64 of the catalog; Georgia O’Keeffe: The Bermuda Respite, Bermuda National Gallery, Hamilton, Bermuda, October 29, 1994– January 25, 1995. N.B. Georgia O’Keeffe sojourned in Bermuda in 1933 and 1934, to rest and recuperate from a serious illness. She had suffered a nervous breakdown in 1933, and after a sevenweek hospital stay, decided to take a trip, accompanied by her friend Marjorie Content. She sought the solitude of a place where she was not known, and she found comfort in the warm climate and beauty in the green-blue waters of Bermuda. During her two Bermuda trips O’Keeffe executed a series of charcoal and pencil drawings of banana blossoms and banyan trees. This aspect of her work was not well known. It was considered surprising that O’Keeffe produced these drawings at a time when it was supposed she was not working at all. However, this series of drawings also seems to fit a pattern in her oeuvre. After times of personal crisis she would often turn to drawing rather than painting to regain her creative energy and focus. In a letter to Rebecca Strand dated “Bermuda, 26 April 1934,” O’Keeffe mused about the drawings, “I have been drawing some here—very dull drawings—I get so interested in them it quite amuses me.”1 In that same letter she expresses her early thoughts of finding a house in New Mexico, calling it the easiest way for her to get back to work.

582 Georgia O’Keeffe (American, 1887-1986) Banyan Tree with Palms, Bermuda Unsigned, titled and dated “...1934” on a detached label with the printed heading “GEORGIA O’KEEFFE/Abiquiu, New Mexico” and identified on detached labels from Hirschl & Adler Galleries, Inc., and Robert Miller Gallery, Inc., both of New York, and the Weatherspoon Art Gallery, The University of North Carolina at Greensboro (see below). Graphite on paper, sheet size 21 3/4 x 14 3/4 in. (55.3 x 37.6 cm), framed. Condition: Gentle toning, slight creases to lower corners.

Provenance: From the artist to Dorothy Bray until 1975; through to Harold Diamond, New York, 1977; to Robert Miller Gallery, New York; to Hirschl & Adler Galleries, Inc., New York; purchased from Hirschl & Adler in 1981 by Elizabeth Stanley, Tucson, Arizona, then by descent to the current owner. Literature: Barbara Buhler Lynes, Georgia O’Keeffe (New Haven and London: Yale University Press, 1999), catalogue raisonné number 842, vol. I, p. 523; The Eye of Stieglitz (New York: Hirschl & Adler Galleries, 1978), p. 64 (illus.); Art on Paper (Greensboro, North Carolina: Weatherspoon Art Gallery, 1977), cat. no. 86 (illus.).

O’Keeffe would not visit Bermuda again after 1934, settling in New Mexico with its vast open space and heat, where she would enter a period of great creativity. However, Bermuda appears to have offered the artist a timely place of respite before the next phase of her career. In 1994, to commemorate the sixtieth anniversary of O’Keeffe’s visit to the island, The Masterworks Foundation organized an exhibition of the Bermuda works at The Bermuda National Gallery. Georgia O’Keeffe: The Bermuda Respite gathered together many of the fourteen drawings she created on the island, including Banyan Trees with Palms. 1.

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.

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. 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.
