Charles Prendergast: A Glimpse of Heaven A Lecture by Carol Clark May 17, 2017 | 63 Park Plaza, Boston, MA Reception 5:30PM, Lecture 6PM

reservations are requested

Carol Clark will discuss the distinctive career of Charles Prendergast (1868-1948) who, along with his brother Maurice, participated in key aesthetic movements of the first half of the 20th century. Inspired by a wide range of art from the past, such as Persian miniatures and Egyptian reliefs, and by folk and modern painting, Charles’s contribution as a frame maker and his creation of fewer than 125 carved, painted, and gilded panels offer insight into an exciting moment in American art. Clark is a co-author of Maurice Brazil Prendergast/Charles Prendergast: A Catalogue Raisonné (Prestel, 1990). Her most recent book, published in conjunction with a 2010 exhibition she organized for the Denver Art Museum, Charles Deas and 1840s America, won a College Art Association Wyeth Foundation for American Art Publication Grant and was awarded the Western History Association’s Joan Patterson Kerr 2011 prize.

held in conjunction with a preview of Skinner’s May 19th auction of American & European Works of Art

N.B. Matisse was a prolific printmaker, creating more than 800 printed works in a broad variety of techniques, embracing intaglio, relief, and planeographic processes. The work presented here is an aquatint, an intaglio process in which the artist brushes a granular resin onto a metal plate. When the plate is placed into an acid bath the particles protect the surface, creating a fine network of channels that carry ink for printing. The results are tonal effects akin to an ink wash. Typically aquatint is used to augment etchings and dry points by giving them more nuanced values of dark and light, but Matisse tended to use aquatint by itself. The use of a brush and the resulting values appealed to Matisse’s interests in draftsmanship and skills as a painter. While Matisse began extensive printmaking in the first decade of the 20th century, he turned to aquatint only in the 1930s.

Matisse is most famed for his expressionistic color, dating back to his Fauvist paintings, but his economy of line—his ability to render figures with only a few simple gestures—is nearly as synonymous with his style. Both of these elements are present in Marie-José en robe jaune. Matisse created a black and white edition of this image as well as the color version seen here. Matisse’s use of line and color takes the contemplative subject of a woman seated by a table with a book open on her lap and turns it into something animated and vigorous. $50,000-80,000

142 Ansel Adams (American, 1902-1984) Leaves and Raindrops, Glacier Bay National Monument, c. 1948. Unsigned.

N.B. While best-known for his majestic views of the American West, Ansel Adams was also drawn to details of the natural world. His interest in printing mural-size photographs began in the mid-1930s. They were typically affixed to plywood or Masonite panels and coated with a thin layer of varnish. Adams preferred a smooth, matte double-weight paper with neutral tone, and sought out subjects like this detail of leaves and grass with raindrops that emphasized “design, pattern, and sheer beauty of tonal relationships.”1 1. Ansel Adams, “Photo-Murals,” U.S. Camera I, no. 12 (November 1940): 53. This print is from negative number 4-C-535 in the Ansel Adams Archive, Center for Creative Photography, Tucson, Arizona.

N.B. At the time Canadian photographer Edward Burtynsky made this image in 1998, the Oxford tire pile in Westley, California, about 80 miles east of San Francisco, was believed to be the nation’s largest, containing an estimated 7 million discarded tires rising to six stories high. Shortly after Burtynsky photographed the site, lightning started a fire in the pile that burned for 30 days, releasing heavy black smoke into the air and hot pyrolytic oils into the ground and retaining ponds. Burtynsky has brought attention to industrial blight worldwide in projects on topics such as oil, quarries, and mines, observing that we “come from nature...There is an importance to [having] a certain reverence for what nature is because we are connected to it... If we destroy nature, we destroy ourselves” (http://www.edwardburtynsky.com/). $7,000-9,000

N.B. Photographer Abelardo Morell is noted for his series of works made using camera obscura techniques. He describes the process in this way: “In setting up a room…, I cover all windows with black plastic in order to achieve total darkness. Then, I cut a small hole in the material I use to cover the windows. This opening allows an inverted image of the view outside to flood onto the back walls of the room. Typically then I focused my large-format camera on the incoming image on the wall then make a camera exposure on film… One of the satisfactions I get from making this imagery comes from my seeing the weird and yet natural marriage of the inside and outside.”1 1. http://www.abelardomorell.net/project/camera-obscura/

Fine Paintings & Sculpture Lots 200-539 to be sold Friday, May 19, 4PM


200

200 Attributed to Hendrick (Henri) Ambrosius Pacx (Packx) (Dutch, 1602-after 1658) Two Village Battle Scenes: The Melee and The Prisoners and Spoils Melee signed “H. PACX” l.r., Prisoners signed “H.” l.l. Both oil on panel, 9 3/8 x 12 1/2 in. (23.5 x 32.0 cm), framed. Condition: Retouch, panels partially reinforced.

N.B. This pair of paintings was reviewed by curators at the RKD-Nederlands Instituut voor Kunstgeschiedenis from digital photographs. Because there is very little documentation of the works of Henri Pacx, it is difficult to provide an absolute attribution. The RKD files do not hold any images of paintings by Pacx that are signed, and works attributed to Pacx are also often attributed to other artists, including Paulus van Hillegaert I. There are parallels to the works of Antwerp painters Sebastian Vrancx and Pieter van der Hulst as well.

Provenance: Purchased from Childs Gallery, Inc., Boston, February 28, 1967; a copy of the invoice accompanies the lot.

However, a work historically ascribed to Pacx, and strikingly similar to this pair, was sold at Bukowski’s in Stockholm in September of 1936, where it was interpreted as a scene from the Thirty Years’ War. The painting was offered again by the dealer P. de Boer in Amsterdam in 1938. The similarities to the pair presented here are strong enough to suggest it could be part of the same series. The painting was described as signed “H. PACX,” but the only extant photograph unfortunately does not show the signature. The RKD believes that it is by the same hand as this pair, and their analysis suggests a strong argument in favor of the attribution of the works to Henri Ambrosius Pacx. $800-1,200

Bronze with deep brown patina, height approximately 36 in. (91.5 cm), base 31 1/2 x 11 in. (80.0 x 28.0 cm). Condition: Minor dust and dirt to patina and to interstices.

N.B. A youthful Cyrus Dallin won the competition for Boston’s Paul Revere Monument in 1882 at the age of 21. However, his quest to complete the commission was a 58-year test of perseverance and resolve, with the sculptor designing seven versions before the monument was installed beside the Old North Church in 1940. The finished statue is a beloved landmark in the Paul Revere Mall, designed by landscape architect Arthur Shurcliff and architect Henry Shepley. The bronze at hand is one of an edition of twelve produced in celebration of the U.S. Bicentennial, issued by the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, in 1976, with sales benefiting the museum.

At that time, the MFA had just acquired by gift an original Dallin plaster of the 1899 version of the statue. The plaster had been in need of repair and was sent to Avard T. Fairbanks in Salt Lake City for restoration. Fairbanks was himself a sculptor and a friend of Cyrus Dallin, and father of MFA curator Jonathan Fairbanks. With the plaster restored, the museum authorized the limited edition bronzes to be cast. Most of these casts were made in Salt Lake City under the watchful eye of Avard T. Fairbanks. The advertising and sale of bronzes on behalf of the Museum of Fine Arts were handled by Vose Galleries of Boston. $20,000-40,000

301 Auguste Rodin (French, 1840-1917) Grande Main Crispée Gauche (Large Clenched Left Hand) Signed “A. Rodin” in the bronze base, inscribed “© by musée Rodin 1969” at the edge of the bronze base, stamped “Georges Rudier/ Fondeur Paris” also on the edge of the base, inscribed inside the base “A Rodin” raised, in an area corresponding to the back of the wrist, marked “2486” in red crayon on the interior, titled on accompanying documents (see below). Bronze with brown patina, 18 1/2 x 10 3/4 in. (47.0 x 27.3 cm), on an integral base. Condition: Interior with a green copper patina to the underside of the base, scattered small scuffs, abrasions, and wear to the patina, dust and dirt to interstices. Provenance: Musée Rodin, Paris; through to Leona Cantor (1969); to Dr. and Mrs. Irving Moskowitz (1972), by descent to the current owner. Literature: Antoinette Le Normand-Romain, The Bronzes of Rodin, Catalogue of Works in the Musée Rodin, Vol. II (Paris: Éditions de la Réunion des Musées Nationaux, 2007), p. 499. N.B. The work is accompanied by two documents. The first is a copy of the Certificat d’Origine from the Musée Rodin, signed by Madame C. Goldscheider, Curator of the Museum, dated November 18, 1969. In this document Mme. Goldscheider certified that the sculpture is proof number six from a limited edition of twelve, sold by the Musée Rodin as their inventory number “2.486.” The second document is a file copy of the bill of sale for the sculpture from Leona Cantor, Beverly Hills, California (first wife of B. Gerald Cantor), to Dr. and Mrs. Irving Moskowitz, Long Beach, California, dated November 20, 1972. Grande Main Crispée Gauche was originally modeled by Rodin c. 1885. The hand is often thought to have been a study for The Burghers of Calais, which was rejected in the course of the monument’s development. Hands always fascinated Rodin, and, as Rodin specialist Rachael Blackburn has stated, through the artist’s exploration it was clear that figurative sculpture did not depend on a whole figure to communicate meaning. By carefully modeling their musculature, proportion, texture, and balance, Rodin demonstrated that hands could convey profound emotion, from anger and despair to compassion and tenderness.1 The sculpture at hand is the sixth of eleven known casts by Georges Rudier made for the Musée Rodin between 1965 and 1974. Although twelve casts had been planned, only eleven are mentioned in the catalogue raisonné. Other examples from the series may be found in the collections of Stanford University and the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York, both as gifts from the Iris and B. Gerald Cantor Foundation. There is an earlier Alexis Rudier cast, c. 1925, in the Rodin Museum in Philadelphia. B. Gerald Cantor was an avid and astute collector of the works of Auguste Rodin and an important benefactor. Iris Cantor related that as a young man in his 20s, Cantor was captivated by the marble of Rodin’s Hand of God at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, and, two years later when he spotted a small bronze version in a Madison Avenue gallery, he bought his first Rodin. In the mid-1950s he acquired Rodin’s The Kiss, which prompted his more systematic collecting. Through the B.G. Cantor Art Foundation and later the Iris & B. Gerald Cantor Foundation, he continued to acquire works and to exhibit and share the collection. In all, 104 objects were purchased by the two Foundations, the first in 1969 and the most recent in 1996, the year of Mr. Cantor’s death. Today the Foundation continues to make gifts to museums, to fund research on Rodin, and to present exhibitions large and small. One such traveling exhibition, The Hands of Rodin, explored the artist’s fascination with the expressive capabilities of hands, both as independent sculptures and as parts of more complex pieces, demonstrating the artist’s mastery at communicating their strength and expressive potential.2 1. http://www.cantorfoundation.org/foundation/the-hands-of-rodin-a-tribute-to-b-geraldcantor/ accessed 4/15/2017 2. http://www.cantorfoundation.org/foundation/rodin-and-the-cantor-foundation/ accessed 4/15/2017

382 Charles E. Prendergast (American, 18631948) Untitled (Vase with Flowers and Birds) Signed “C. Prendergast” l.l., dated “1936” l.r. Tempera and gold and silver leaf on incised gessoed panel, 20 x 16 in. (50.5 x 40.0 cm) framed. Condition: Good. Provenance: Private collection, New York, by family descent; Sotheby’s New York, American Paintings, Drawings & Sculpture, December 2, 2010; through to the current owner. N.B. Nancy Mathews of the Prendergast Archive & Study Center examined this painting in 2010 and rendered her opinion that the work is by Charles Prendergast, based on its stylistic similarities to Flowers (MFA Boston) and Blue Vase and Birds (private collection). The present painting hung at one time in the home of Juliana Force, the first Director of the Whitney Museum of American Art. The location in Force’s home was documented in a photograph from the magazine Country Life, April 1937, depicting Force’s bedroom decorated with furniture by Max Kuehne. The Prendergast painting hung just to the left of the Kuehne folding screen. The photograph was subsequently reproduced in Max Kuehne, Artist and Craftsman (New York: Hollis Taggart Galleries, 2001), p. 36, figure 13.

382

In 1911, at the height of his renown as one of the finest frame makers of his time, Charles and his brother, artist Maurice Prendergast, traveled to Italy. Their visits to Italian museums and churches inspired Charles to draw on the Christian tradition of gilded panels, as well as Middle Eastern and Asian imagery, to create decorated panels and objects. These works called on his talent with woodworking as well as his interest in and understanding of fine art. Like his Arts and Crafts-style frames, the panels featured carved and incised patterns highlighted with gesso (a mixture of chalk and glue coating the picture surface), tempera paint, and gold and silver leaf. Charles exhibited his panels alongside Maurice’s paintings in several joint exhibitions in New York following the brothers’ return from Italy, and before Maurice’s death in 1924. Charles continued to create panels and decorative objects, and his work was influential in the rise of interest in American primitive and folk art in the first half of the 20th century. $30,000-50,000

N.B. This bust of Louise Adele Dickerson Gould was commissioned by her husband, Charles W. Gould, a well-known New York lawyer, after Louise died tragically in 1883, after only two years of marriage. In fact, this wax sculpture is the last in a series of portraits that Mr. Gould had asked Augustus SaintGaudens to create. The first was a bas-relief depicting Mrs. Gould in her wedding gown (Metropolitan Museum of Art 15.105.1), the second was a bust cut in marble by Piccirilli Brothers in 1895 (MET 15.105.2), and the third, another bust, was completed in 1904 (MET 32.62.1). Gould believed this likeness of his late wife was “the most beautiful of the three designs,” and he ordered wax replicas of the third bust. The pigment was added by Herbert Samuel Adams (American, 18581945), who was known for his polychromatic busts of women. $2,500-3,500

401 Esperanza Gabay (American, 1875-1963) Woman Knitting in a Sunlit Bedroom Signed and dated “Esperanza Gabay 1928” l.r. Oil on canvas, 28 x 27 in. (71.0 x 68.5 cm), framed. Condition: Lined, scattered retouch, craquelure, natural pigment fluorescence. Provenance: The estate of George and Nancy Thurston. N.B. While not well known today, Esperanza Gabay was an active painter who exhibited widely in New York in the 1920s. Born in 1874, she grew up and lived in New York City where she studied with Kenyon Cox and Walter Shirlaw, presumably at the Art Students League.

She is known to have summered at the Cragsmoor Art Colony (1913-14) and on Martha’s Vineyard. In 1917 Gabay joined the National Association of Women Painters and Sculptors, later the National Association of Women Artists, and she exhibited with that group until the early 1930s, winning prizes and earning successful reviews in the New York Herald and the New York Times. Her works hung in National Academy of Design shows six times between 1917 and 1931, and she had two solo exhibitions in New York, one at Mrs. Malcom’s Gallery in 1922 and the other at the Holt Gallery in 1926.

When Gabay passed away in 1963, her estate was left to the Reverend and Mrs. William Weigle of Egremont, Massachusetts. The Weigle house and furnishings, along with the things remaining of Gabay’s estate, were purchased in 1975 by Nancy and George Thurston, who later began to research and assemble an archive about Gabay. The two works at hand (Lots 401 and 404) were found by the Thurstons in the Weigle house. Nancy Thurston is the author of an unpublished biographical sketch of the artist. $15,000-25,000

In the late 1920s Gabay relocated to Sheffield, Massachusetts, in the Berkshires, where she continued to paint and to exhibit at the Stockbridge Art Association and the Lime Rock (Connecticut) Art Association.

N.B. Mikhail Larionov and Natalia Goncharova were key figures in the development of Rayism (or Rayonism) in Russia. Reacting to modern art movements, especially Italian Futurism, they sought a way of creating art that moved beyond current forms of abstraction. They derived the name Rayism or Luchism (luch meaning ray in Russian) from the use of dynamic rays of contrasting color, representing lines of reflected light. The movement lasted from roughly from 1912 to 1914, when Goncharova and Larionov left Russia for Switzerland. From his study of the British artist Joseph Mallord William Turner, Larionov became fascinated with how to depict light in painting. Larionov internalized this quest, developing a theory of invisible rays (not unlike the Futurists “lines of force”), and he began to structure his paintings around slanting lines, resembling rays of light, shooting and converging across the picture plane. As the style evolved, the beams began to dominate the picture, moving to complete abstraction.1 1. http://www.visual-arts-cork.com/history-of-art/rayonism. htm accessed 4/20/2017

525 Alexander Calder (American, 1898-1976) Untitled (Standing Mobile), c. 1953 Unsigned. Sheet metal, brass wire, and paint, height 3 in. (7.5 cm) to topmost disk. Condition: Paint losses, slight bend to upper point of the sheet metal base, tarnish to brass wire. Provenance: Commissioned from the artist by Betty Milton, by family descent to the current owner. N.B. This work is registered in the archives of the Calder Foundation, New York, under application number A28299. The standing mobile was reviewed by the Calder Foundation in New York on March 23, 2017, at which time they confirmed the date of c. 1953. By the 1950s, Alexander Calder had become an internationally recognized and respected artist. He was chosen to represent the United States in the 1952 Venice Biennale at which he won the grand prize for sculpture. That same year, he designed sets and costumes for the play Nuclea which opened in Paris, and he worked on the design for a fountain for architect Eero Saarinen’s General Motors Techinical Center project in Michigan.

Throughout this period, Calder maintained a very high rate of production, working on largescale sculpture commissions as well as small works like this standing mobile. Though born into a family of artists, Calder initially rejected an artistic career, choosing instead to study mechanical engineering. Ultimately, he conceded to his artistic roots and enrolled in the Art Students League in New York in 1923, soon afterwards he began making regular visits to Paris where he worked on and exhibited small, figurative wire sculptures. In Paris, Calder met fellow artists Joan Miró, Fernand Léger, and Piet Mondrian, all of whom influenced Calder’s progression to abstract forms in his works. Calder created his first kinetic sculptures in 1931, and Marcel Duchamp began referring to the works as “mobiles.” At first, Calder’s mobiles were motorized, but he quickly realized that he could propel his works through ambient air currents. Calder worked persistently throughout his career on variations of his abstract mobiles (suspended moving sculptures), standing mobiles (anchored moving sculptures), and stabiles (stationary constructions). The scale of his sculptures varies widely, from colossal outdoor stabiles to diminutive standing mobiles.

Though he often made small maquettes as part of the design process for large sculptures, he meant the majority of his small sculptures to be artworks in their own rights. For this untitled standing mobile, Calder employed his hallmark form—colorful, abstract shapes suspended on carefully balanced systems of wire hangers. Calder’s interests in physics, astronomy, and kinetics, coupled with his involvement in the Abstraction-Création group of artists in Paris, informed the primary colors and geometric and organic shapes he used in his carefully engineered constructions. The sturdy base of this tiny standing mobile gives way to a thin, delicate wire that sits on the tip of the base via a tiny dimple on the underside of the wire. Calder weighted the circular shapes on either end of the wire to enable it to balance perfectly. Engineering skill, artistic genius, elegance, and playfulness all characterize Calder’s œuvre. Describing his motives, Calder told an interviewer, “I want to make things that are fun to look at, that have no propaganda value whatsoever.”1 1. “Calder” in Selden Rodman, Conversations with Artists (New York, 1957), pp. 136-42; Martha Prather, Alexander S.C.

Hans Hofmann, an influential teacher and artist involved with the New York School of Abstract Expressionism, probably created this drawing early in his career, sometime between 1926 and 1929, while running his eponymous art school in Munich. Drawn on translucent paper, the work may have been used to produce lichtdruck (collotype) prints—a photomechanical technique popular in Germany in the first half of the 20th century.

N.B. Dove Bradshaw began her Contingency Series in 1984, first pouring or brushing silver leaf and liver of sulfur (a chemical agent that causes silver to become unstable and to change in response to temperature, humidity, and light) onto paper, and later using the same materials on a variety of supports including linen, wood, and silver plates. Influenced by the elements of chance and indeterminacy in the works of Marcel Duchamp and John Cage, she sought to create compositions that would mutate over time, and over which she had little control. Immediately after applying the liver of sulfur, the silver would become vibrantly colored. After one day, the colors would deepen, and later, darken even further. Bradshaw worked indoors and outdoors, and in different seasons, to produce varied results.
