African Art Collection Benefiting the Auschwitz Institute of Peace and Reconciliation, Lots: 31–82 Fred Schwartz established a legacy of humanitarianism over a lifetime of service, garnering recognition as one of the foremost experts in the field of genocide prevention. Mr. Schwartz officially represented the United States at the 2004 Stockholm Forum on the Prevention of Genocide, and in January 2005, was appointed by President Bush to the United States Delegation commemorating the 60th Anniversary of the Liberation of the Auschwitz Camps. To ensure continued education in the field of genocide prevention, Schwartz founded the Auschwitz Institute for Peace and Reconciliation in Auschwitz, Poland, in 2005. Soon after, the significance of its mission expanded the Auschwitz Institute’s presence globally to New York, Argentina, and Uganda, and has worked with the United Nations to develop programs all over the world to protect human rights and prevent genocide and other mass atrocities. Over the course of their global travels, Mr. Schwartz and his wife Allyne amassed a collection of art originating from the many cultures their mission allowed them to visit. Following his death in 2016, that collection reflects a dignified life of humanitarian service spanning many nations, and Allyne decided to honor his memory by donating proceeds from the sale of their African art collection to the organization that continues to carry out Mr. Schwartz’s legacy. All proceeds from the sale of these items will go to the Auschwitz Institute for Peace and Reconciliation, directly funding a multilateral genocide prevention approach.

203 Hethuska Society Painted Hide, c. 1880s, probably Ponca, depicting drummers, a buffalo hunter, and a multitude of dancing warriors wearing regalia associated with this particular dance, mounted on a linen-covered wood frame, (some restoration), the hide 51 x 44 1/2 in. Provenance: Collected by Edwin Knickerbocker Losee (1863-1934), who lived in Upper Red Hook, New York, and worked as a physician in that town. Following graduation from medical school, in 1890 his father sent him on a railroad trip across the United States, heading west on the Northern Pacific line. During his trip he took several side trips through country only recently accessible due to the completion of the railroad—such as Kansas and Nebraska.

40

It is assumed that he purchased the hide on one of these side trips. He also visited Pompei’s Pillar along the Yellowstone River, and Gardner, Montana, to see the newly established Yellowstone Park. Losee left a photographic album of his journey that documents several events and landscapes along his routes, copies of several are provided with the lot. He recorded his return trip on the Denver and Rio Grande Railroad through Colorado, and he is pictured posing in front of a wigwam on that trip. Following Edwin’s death, the hide was passed to his son, James Knickerbocker Losee (18991982), and was displayed in his home, “The Boulderado Ranch,” in Las Vegas, Nevada, in the 1940s and 50s.
