Provenance The Collection of Ron Tunison | Lots 1–169 Ron, like myself, became interested in American Military History at a very young age. As he matured, his interest in the Civil War and other military themes grew and he began to collect related objects and artifacts. He was also a blooming artist. After Ron graduated from High School, he attended the School of Visual Arts in New York City where he studied painting, illustration, photography, and sculpting before graduating in 1969. He also attended the National Academy School of Fine Arts in New York City where he honed his artistic skills. Ron used his collection as study material and it surrounded him in his studio. When he was sculpting a figure real artifacts were used to capture the right look. Many pieces in his collection are associated with individual soldiers, which was another one of his passions. Identified artifacts brought the pieces a human identity he could research, study, and enjoy. He kept numerous files on historical subjects so that they could be used in his sculpting projects and was meticulous about getting the details correct. We became friends in the mid-1970s and worked together on quite a few projects. As an artist he knew exactly what other artists were looking for, and I enjoyed working with him. He was a good friend. The objects presented at Skinner were an important part of Ron’s work and his life. Here is a chance to own, study, and care for them as Ron did. —Don Troiani

204 Lead Hand, Wrist, and Forearm Likely from the Statue of King George III at Bowling Green, New York City, c. 1770, lead left hand, wrist, and forearm, with two small holes on the back of the hand, with internal iron nails for likely attaching the stature to an internal armature, overall lg. 21 in. Provenance: Found in Wilton, Connecticut, in 1991 by a resident of the town who lived in a home owned by Tory Job Burlock. Note: The statue, originally erected in 1770, was pulled down on July 9, 1776, broken up and shipped to Litchfield, Connecticut, to be melted and cast into musket balls. The carts hauling the pieces stopped for the night in Wilton, Connecticut. During the early morning hours loyalists living in the area took a number of the statue’s pieces and hid them in various locations in the town. PXRF analysis was performed on this fragment and compared with data collected from pXRF analysis conducted on two fragments of the statue in the New-York Historical Society collection. The data shows that this and the N-YHS fragments are a virtually perfect alloy match. $15,000-25,000
