Pearce, Esq.; Peregrine Fairfax, c. 1963; anonymous sale Sotheby’s 28 Oct. 1964 (90); anonymous sale Sotheby’s 2 Feb. 1966 (lot 143); purchased by current owner in 1966 from the Fulton Art Gallery & Picture Framing Co., New York City. N.B.   “Mrs.” Elizabeth Field was the sister-in-law of the Reverend Joshua Reynolds, paternal uncle and godfather of the painter, Sir Joshua Reynolds.  Although a maiden lady, the sitter was referenced as “Mrs.” as was customary in the era.  The portrait is described in very complimentary terms by William Cotton, who wrote, “There is also in Captain Palmer’s possession at Torrington a very beautiful portrait of Mrs. Field, the sister in law of the Rev. J. Reynolds (Sir Joshua’s uncle), which must have been painted before he went to

Italy. The carnations are of great delicacy and clearness, and the gestures well defined, although not so strongly pronounced by means of that depth of shadow which he afterwards adopted from the works of Titian and other Italian masters.”1  There is some discrepancy among scholars as to the exact date of the portrait.  Graves and Cronin dated the painting to 1748, while Ellis Waterhouse dated it to 1744, and the earlier date is suggested also by David Mannings (c. 1744) in the catalogue raisonné.2 1.

306. American School, 19th Century Lot of Two Female Portraits, Possibly Mother and Daughter Unsigned. Oil on canvas, 9 1/4 x 7 1/2 in. (23.5 x 19.1 cm), framed. Condition: One lined, retouch, varnish inconsistencies, craquelure, surface grime. $800-1,200 307. After John Hoppner, R.A. (British, 1758-1810) Bust-length Portrait of the Right Honorable William Pitt the Younger (1759-1806) Unsigned. Oil on canvas, 30 x 25 in. (76.0 x 63.2 cm), framed. Condition: Lined, retouch, craquelure, minor paint loss. Provenance: Purchased by the family of the current owner in 1935 from a New York City gallery, possibly Howard Young Galleries. N.B. John Hoppner, R.A, (1758-1810) was a celebrated portraitist of the leading political and social figures of his day. The painting at hand is based upon Hoppner’s original threequarter length portrait from life of the British statesman, the Right Honourable William Pitt the Younger, who died in January, 1806, at the age of 46 years. The original Hoppner portrait, commissioned by then foreign secretary Lord Mulgrave (Sir Henry Phipps [1755-1831]) and completed October 25, 1805, was the last portrait for which Pitt the Younger sat, and it was regarded as an excellent likeness. When Pitt died, the portrait was still in Hoppner’s studio where it was being engraved. After Pitt’s untimely death, many requests were made for copies of the portrait, which were authorized by Lord Mulgrave; Hoppner himself painted about twenty versions of varying sizes, and he hired assistants who also painted copies. There were undoubtedly also further replicas made from these copies. Seventeen examples based on the Mulgrave portrait are noted in John Hoppner, R.A. by William McKay and W. Roberts (London: P. & D. Colnaghi & Co and George Bell & Sons, 1909), including one at the National Portrait Gallery in London. The portrait also served in part as the basis for the full-length sculpture of Pitt done by Joseph Nollekens (1737-1823).1

306

The painting at hand, which is unsigned and focuses on the bust of Pitt, is likely an early 19th century version. The bold brushwork and freshness seem to suggest close familiarity with the original. Specific details, such as the dusting of wig powder resting on the sitter’s collar, lend immediacy and closely parallel a descriptive analysis by George Scharf of the portrait of Pitt at the National Portrait Gallery.2 However, due to the number of contemporary copies based on the Mulgrave portrait, and without specific documentary evidence, it is very difficult to trace the painting to a particular hand. 1.

N.B. Thomas Gainsborough spent his youth in Sudbury, Suffolk, in southeastern England, where his father was a cloth merchant.  His early landscapes, done roughly between 1748 and 1752, depict the chalky cliffs, cloud filled skies, gnarled trees, and rutted cart tracks that characterized the Sudbury/Ipswich area. This painting shares many of those elements, but was probably painted by a contemporary of Gainsborough who pulled together vignettes from other Gainsborough works.  Even in his own time, Gainsborough had many imitators.  In his book, The Landscape Paintings of Thomas Gainsborough: A Critical Text and Catalogue Raisonné (Ithaca, NY: Cornell University Press, 1982), John T. Hayes illustrated several early landscapes that relate to the painting at hand.  Specific elements found in this work include the seated figure (Hayes, cat. 29), the track (Hayes, cat. 35) and the standing figure (Hayes, cat. 47).  Although clearly talented and skillful, the painter of this view of Sudbury does not seem to have had the painterly touch of Gainsborough, himself. We wish to thank Malcolm Cormack, Virginia Museum of Fine Arts Paul Mellon Curator Emeritus, for his help with this entry. $2,000-3,000

By an act of Congress, fifty thousand dollars was allocated for the purpose, along with a steam-powered vessel, the Polaris, made available by the U.S. Navy. A group of scientists was also assembled to establish the exact location of the Pole. On September 31, 1871, the vessel sailed to northern Greenland and set up a base for the scientific party at Thank God Harbor. From the start, the expedition was troubled as rival factions engaged, presumably over the conduct of the ship’s commander, Charles Francis Hall, who died from arsenic poison shortly after the base was established. With his death, the remainder of the crew and the scientific party abandoned the purpose of the voyage and departed from the Arctic without completing its mission.” $10,000-15,000

(30.5 x 40.6 cm), in a Couse-designed Taos Arts & Crafts frame (under glass). Condition: Minor losses. Provenance: A private New England collection. Literature: Falk, Peter, ed., The Annual Exhibition Record of the National Academy of Design, 1901-1950, Madison: Sound View Press, 1990, p. 147. Exhibitions: National Academy of Design Annual Exhibition, March 16–April 15, 1923, exh. no. 260. N.B. We wish to thank Virginia Couse Leavitt for her assistance with cataloguing the lot. The work will be included in her forthcoming catalogue raisonné on the artist. The Couse-designed frame is significant to the present work, and reflects the Arts and Crafts philosophy of beautiful utility. Though many of the Taos school artists chose hand-carved frames for their works, Couse is one of the few that worked closely with framemakers to create distinctive motifs and finishes “mated” for particular paintings. Couse likely derived his highly-stylized motifs from Southwestern Indian pottery and other artifacts that he collected.1 He was also known to finish his frames with earth tones, “often adding washes of color through the interstices of the carving to bring the frame into closer harmony with the particular lighting in the painted image.”2 The frame on the present work closely resembles one designed by Couse for “Indian Drinking from a Lake,” c. 1911-1925, in the Cincinnati Art Museum collection. Both share deep, incised lines and abstracted fan-shaped motifs. As a pictorial device, Couse favored single-figure compositions tightly cropped. In the way that his frames attract the viewer’s attention through their bold patterning, it may be argued that his frames truly “contain” rather than expand the pictorial space, imparting a greater intimacy to the moments depicted. 1.

At its peak, the shop employed fifteen people and provided custom frames to museums, galleries, and collectors throughout America. In 1939 the corporation was dissolved, and the operation moved to the Vose Galleries’ premises. These notes are based upon information from the Smithsonian Institution’s catalogue entry for the microfilm records of the CarrigRohane Shop. $5,000-7,000

456. Jane Peterson (American, 1876-1965) His Bungalow/Percival Lowell’s House, Flagstaff, Arizona Signed “JANE PETERSON” l.r., identified on a label from Hirschl & Adler Galleries, Inc., New York, on the backing. Gouache on paper, sheet size 18 x 24 in. (45.7 x 61.0 cm), framed. Condition: Not examined out of frame. Literature: Leonard, Louise, Percival Lowell: An Afterglow, Boston: Richard G. Badger, 1921, pp. 18, 70 (illus.) N.B. Percival Lowell, a descendant of the original Boston Lowell Family, built the Lowell Observatory in Flagstaff, Arizona, in 1894. He is credited with laying the groundwork for the discovery of Pluto in 1930, which he had only speculated to exist before his death in 1916.

Prior to moving West, Lowell had traveled and written extensively on Far East Asia, specifically Japan, documenting life and customs in the 1880s. Like other educated men of his social standing and time, he was fascinated by exotic culture and was inspired to understand it. His interest “…to know and interpret the dynamic and vital evolution of other worlds…” parlayed into a focus on planetary research, and Lowell chose to build his observatory in Flagstaff due to its high elevation and clear air which was ideally suited for viewing the night sky.1 The present work depicts Lowell’s Arts and Crafts bungalow in the high desert of Arizona. The incongruity of this style to the landscape (and his wishful attempt to grow Japanese iris in the desert) speaks to the deep influence of Japonisme on his aesthetics.

500. Willard Leroy Metcalf (American, 1858-1925) Purple and Gold/A Vermont Landscape Signed and dated “W. L. METCALF. 1922” l.l., titled and inscribed “...1216...RF 5036-E” in pencil on the stretcher, with a label from E. & A. Milch, Inc., New York, on the reverse. Oil on canvas, 26 x 29 in. (66.0 x 73.7 cm), in a probable Albert Milch frame. Condition: Minor surface grime. Provenance: A private New England collection. Exhibitions: Exhibition of Paintings by Willard L. Metcalf, February 12–March 3, 1923, The Milch Galleries, New York, no. 5. N.B. This painting will be included in the forthcoming catalogue raisonné of the works of Willard L. Metcalf by Ira Spanierman and Richard J. Boyle. The present work was one of fifteen works shown at a one-man exhibition in February 1923 that marked a critical point in Metcalf’s life and career. Having suffered a series of personal disappointments and low artistic productivity in 1921, Metcalf lapsed into a bout of alcoholism lasting several months. Metcalf, still in the grips of the addiction, was visiting Boston early in 1922 when several of his friends concerned for his wellbeing intervened and called his art dealer, Albert Milch.1 Milch gave him an ultimatum: quit drinking or lose representation.2 Metcalf promised to curb his drinking, and in a few months time, resolved to paint a group of superior works for an exhibit to be held a year later, in the early part of 1923. During this year, Metcalf worked in primarily two Vermont locations: Lower Perkinsville for most of the winter through summer, and Chester for the late summer through fall. The present work is likely from his Chester period, where he created his tour-de-force work, Indian Summer (No. 3), 1922, presently in the Dallas Museum of Art collection. A critic praised Indian Summer (No. 3) for its “reserved yet brilliant tones” that “permeate the canvas,” adding that, “a beautiful light envelops the composition and the soft warm haze of the season is felt throughout.”3 The same may be said of the present work, though it offers a quieter, resigning view. Perhaps as much out of pride as an assurance to Milch that he intended to deliver on his promise, Metcalf made a diagram of the fifteen works he had completed for his February exhibit. The present work is likely represented in the diagram as November Morning, as it is identical in composition and size, and one may speculate that it was renamed to distinguish it from November in the same show. The sales from the exhibit were highly successful for Metcalf, and he returned to Chester later in the month in high spirits.4 1. 2. 3. 4.

Exhibitions: Lee Lufkin Kaula 1865-1957, Post Impressionist of the Boston School, James R. Bakker Antiques and Robert E. Cleaves, Groton, Massachusetts, March 9-23, 1974. N.B. On July 20, 1897, William Kaula, future husband of the artist, wrote in his diary, “Miss L. is painting an excellent interior of the old stone church at La Chapelle. It is an old stained-whitewashed interior with old wooden pews, stone floors and green mould [sic] creeping up the side-walls. With the addition of a few figures, the priest, choirboy, and a few old women it will make an interesting work as it is painted with a pleasing simplicity and good feeling for subdued color. Miss L. has none of the insipid sentiment about the picturesque, and has no desire to paint the anecdotal picture- the bane of art students in Paris or France.” (Excerpted from the hand-written journal of William J. Kaula, July 20, 1897, while sojourning in Crécy, France, pp. 176-177.) The journal entry also mentions “Miss S,” presumably Claire Shuttleworth, with whom Lee Lufkin traveled to Paris. Lee Lufkin and William Kaula were married in 1902. Accompanying this lot are a notarized letter of authenticity signed by James R. Bakker and Robert E. Cleaves dated March 31, 1974, and five volumes of William J. Kaula’s handwritten diaries from October 13, 1896, through July 25, 1903. $1,500-2,500

Condition: One with canvas loss u.r., surface rubs, surface grime. N.B. In a report on these sketches, Frederick P. Moffatt noted that from 1893-1900, Dow was experimenting with flattened forms, synthesized colors, and asymmetrical compositions inspired by Japanese woodblock prints, but he also continued to paint less exotic interiors, landscapes and coastal scenes. The present sketches compare most readily with the more conservative offerings of the 1893-1900 period, and probably fall somewhere around 1900. We wish to thank Frederick C. Moffatt for his help with this entry. $600-800 545. Russian School, 20th Century Forest Glade Unsigned, titled, and inscribed “...Sinyavsky...� on a label in Cyrillic on the reverse.

Condition: Paint loss from frame abrasion l.l. Provenance: Purchased from Grand Central Art Galleries, New York, c. 1948, then by descent through the family. N.B. Of Armenian descent, Hovsep Pushman immigrated to the United States with his parents when he was in his late teens, settling in Chicago. His was a family of highly intellectual antiquarian collectors and dealers in Oriental rugs, who encouraged Hovsep in his artistic studies. Pushman pursued his education in China and in Paris, where he won his first bronze medal at the Paris Salon in 1914. By 1920, Pushman turned to painting still lifes almost exclusively, often basing his spiritual compositions around the rare antiquities, statuettes, ancient pottery and glass that his family had collected. His compositions often included wilted roses and other dried flowers.

Pushman preferred to work on wood or Masonite, although he understood that potential purchasers believed that canvas made a more desirable support. Hence, Pushman would occasionally back his paintings with a layer of canvas fabric and add a stretcher-like reinforcement to the back, as is the case with the work at hand. Pushman preferred to use antique frames, many of which he bought in Paris and had restored and refitted for his paintings in New York. In 1923 Pushman moved to New York and opened a studio at the Carnegie Hall Building. He joined Grand Central Art Galleries and enjoyed great success there; his solo show in 1932 contained 16 paintings, all of which sold on opening day. He also had solo shows in 1943 and 1945. Reviewers in Artnews and Art Digest praised the works for their timelessness and quietude, peace and mystery, while citing their dramatic lighting, richness of texture, and technical competence.1 1.

N.B. Born in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, in 1885, Beaux emerged as one of the most celebrated female artists of the late 19th and early 20th centuries. At the age of 16 she enrolled at the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts where she specialized in portrait painting. She then traveled to Paris from 1877-78 to continue her studies at the Academie Julian and the Academie Colorossi, where she studied with French Salon greats William Bouguereau and Robert Tony Fleury. Upon her return to America in 1895 she accepted a position to teach at the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts, a position she would hold for two decades. By 1902, she was recognized as one of the premiere portrait painters in America and won full membership into the National Academy. She respected fellow portrait artist John Singer Sargent yet regarded him as a true rival of her style, although one can observe noticeable similarities between these two artists’ brush techniques and color palette. $25,000-35,000

Condition: Small punctures, subtle canvas deformations, surface grime, abrasions, craquelure. N.B. Dean Cornwell was a leading illustrator and muralist active in the first half of the 20th Century.

His illustrations appeared in serialized fiction and in magazines such a Red Book and the Saturday Evening Post, as well as in major newspapers and in the Hearst Publications. He illustrated advertisements for blue chip companies such as Seagrams, Coca-Cola and General Motors, and created patriotic posters during the Second World War. Early in his career, Cornwell was influenced by Harvey Dunn, his instructor at the Art Students League, who introduced Cornwell to the teachings Howard Pyle and the Brandywine School of Illustration. Cornwell was passionate about his art, often working seven days a week and creating many studies for his finished pieces.

In 1929, Cornwell entered a new phase of his career when he apprenticed himself to Frank Brangwyn in England to learn the art of mural painting. He went on to earn commissions for many significant mural projects. Described as “A Painter who Illustrates and an Illustrator who Paints,”1 Dean Cornwell believed in the fusion of fine and commercial art. He was both a respected artist and teacher, who reflected changing American taste and culture as well as the art of his era. 1.

599. Edmund Charles Tarbell (American, 1862-1938) Girl with Horse, alternatively titled Girl on an Pony Signed “Edmund Tarbell.” l.l., identified on labels on the frame backing from Vose Galleries of Boston and Frances Aronson Fine Art, Atlanta, Georgia. Oil on canvas, 30 x 25 in. (76.3 x 63.7 cm), framed. Condition: Lined, retouch, stable craquelure Literature: Patricia Jobe Pierce, Edmund C. Tarbell and the Boston School of Painting (1889-1980), Hingham, MA: Pierce Galleries, Inc., 1980, pp. 195-196.

N.B. Edmund Tarbell was one of the most influential painters and teachers on the Boston art scene at the turn of the 20th century. Born in West Groton, Massachusetts, Tarbell studied at the School of the Museum of Fine Arts beginning in 1879. He was encouraged by his instructors to further his academic training at the Academie Julien, which he did in 1883. Living and working in Paris at that moment, the young artist was also exposed to Impressionism. After touring Italy and other parts of Europe, Tarbell returned to Boston in 1886, and in 1889 he began teaching at the Museum School, where he developed a cadre of devoted students who became known as “the Tarbellites.” Tarbell was an original member of The Ten, which included Chile Hassam, Willard Metcalf, and Frank Benson among others, who resigned from the Society of American Artists in 1897 to protest the politics and commercialization of the Society’s exhibitions and who continued to exhibit together for the next twenty years. He co-founded the Guild of Boston Artists in 1914 and served as its first president. Later in his career he was Principal of the Corcoran School of Art in Washington, D.C. Tarbell drew upon his family for much of his subject matter, painting portraits of domestic life and sun-filled plein air scenes in an Impressionist style. The painting at hand was painted c. 1892. $150,000-200,000

613. William James Glackens (American, 1870-1938) Still Life with Orange Lilies, c. 1930s Signed “W. Glackens” l.l. and incised “W.G.” on the frame reverse. Oil on canvas, 15 1/2 x 12 1/2 in. (39.4 x 31.8 cm), in a probable Glackens or Prendergast Studio frame. Condition: Minor craquelure, small puncture to u.l. quadrant. Provenance: Private Cincinnati collection. N.B. Though Glackens painted floral still lifes in his figural compositions as early as the 1900s, it was not until the mid-1910s that appeared as an independent motif.1 Over the next two decades, Glackens painted still lifes with greater frequency, and as a motif, they comprised his largest body of work.2

The present work is typical of a Glackens still life in its depiction of a casual arrangement of garden-cut flowers in a simple vase.3 Despite the simplicity of subject, the color relationships depicted are wonderfully complex, with subtle secondary hues throughout. As a motif, their “disarming” simplicity and “camouflaged” casualness was noted in 1937 by a critic who remarked of their formal and expressive qualities, “…what joy in pure painting these flower pieces afford! What lusciousness of pigment, what purity of color and astounding candor of statement…”4 1. 2. 3. 4.

641. Jamini Roy (Indian, 1887-1972) Horse and Rider in a Tanga Signed in Bengali l.r. Tempera on card, 17 3/8 x 24 1/2 in. (44.1 x 62.2 cm), framed. Condition: Minor losses, not examined out of frame. N.B. The primitive styles of native Bengali art began to inspire Bengali-born artist Jamini Roy in the 1920s. Until then, Roy had been working in a European academic style learned at the Government School of Art, Calcutta. By several accounts, Roy’s rejection of the academic style arose from an artistic dissatisfaction with naturalism and a desire for a more expressive technique. His attraction to the Bengali indigenous arts, however, can also be explained by the political climate of his time. A sense of Indian nationalism was growing—the stirrings of which would eventually result in independence in 1947. Roy had come to reject the “bourgeois notion of the artist’s uniqueness with an artisan’s modesty” and sought to “make art available to the Bengali middle class.”1 On this belief, Roy formed a workshop of artists trained to reproduce his native-inspired motifs.

641

Perhaps in spite of his belief in democratic artistic production, his “genius” is considered by many to be his assimilation of the Bengali folk painting traditions and European art. Adopting the formal and thematic elements of both styles, Roy simplified his technique. He came to reject the Western painting medium and support of oil on stretched canvas, opting instead for folk materials such homespun cloth, wood, or paper. His color palette became limited to “yellow ochre, Indian red and cadmium green (all fashioned out of indigenous rock dust), vermilion (from powdery mercury), grey (out of river wash), blue (from indigo) and white (from chalk).”2 1.

In 1947, the Stephans founded the literary and art journal, “The Tiger’s Eye.” The title directly refers to William Blake’s poem “The Tyger” and was meant to evoke the idea of a “fierce life force looking out through the darkness.”2 The journal was innovative for its “anonymous” format—the identities of the contributors were indexed separately from the works at the center of the magazine, showcasing the art and not the artist.3 In its short two-year run, it featured new visual works by some of the best-regarded American artists of its day, including Milton Avery, Barnett Newman, and Arshile Gorky, alongside John Stephan’s own work. Stephan’s work evolved from a loose, expressivist style to hardedged color fields in the mid-1960s. Specifically, he began a series of ringed discs that he continued through the 1980s, which one may suppose naturally arose from his interest in the symbolism of the tiger’s eye. Stephan also became acquainted with Japanese art and culture at that time, and was likely influenced by the symbolism of the circle within Zen Buddhist philosophy. Regardless of the impetus, Stephan was fascinated by the effects of the circular form: “I see the circle-disc as being the simplest yet most subtle, inherently perfect form…I am, moreover, intrigued by the primacy that this austere image demonstrates within the space of the canvas; it appears to float and hover naturally…”4

Stephan worked methodically on his disc paintings, using a compass to mark lines and a rotating table to apply paint freehand. He also maintained an extensive catalogue of self-blended paint chips, allowing him to experiment with the “push-pull” effects of certain colors side-by-side prior to application. The resulting works look flawless in their execution, and allows viewers to fix their gaze meditatively at the center. 1. Franks, Pamela. The Tiger’s Eye: The Art of a Magazine.

669. Chuck Close (American, b. 1940) Untitled Signed and dated “Close 1962” l.r. Oil on canvas, 12 x 11 1/2 in. (30.5 x 29.2 cm), framed. Condition: Craquelure, minor surface grime. Provenance: Private Pacific Northwest collection through a gift from the artist. N.B. Prior to photorealism, Close worked in an abstract expressionist vein roughly from 1958 to 1962, beginning with his freshman year at Everett Junior College to his senior year at the University of Washington. Close immersed himself in the New York contemporary art scene vicariously, following the works of such artists as Jackson Pollock and Willem de Kooning in his college library through reproduced plates in magazines and exhibition catalogues.1 Of all the New York artists, he was particularly attracted to de Kooning because he continued to grapple with depicting the figure in abstraction.

Close’s enthusiasm for abstract expressionism was further encouraged by two instructors, particularly Alden Mason at UW who shared an appreciation of de Kooning and worked in a gestural style.3 The present work engages with one of the challenges of abstract expressionism, which is to capture a sense of freedom in improvisation. The heavy-loaded and heavy-handed strokes convey a confident hand, and the staccato movements throughout gather a collective energy much larger than its size. It also shows an indebtedness to Hans Hoffman and de Kooning in exploring the relationship between figure and ground. The work was created in the same year that Close graduated from UW and began the Yale MFA program, and marks the end of a transitional period before he began to focus on portraits and photography. 1. Finch, Christopher. Chuck Close: Work. New York: Prestel, 2010. pg. 23. 2. Finch, Christopher. Chuck Close: Life. New York: Prestel, 2010. pg. 60. 3. Ibid, 72.

$60,000-80,000

The energy and ambition of the abstract expressionist approach resonated with Close, and once he found his passion for it, he worked feverishly in it. By peer accounts, he “worked in a controlled frenzy…with a studied abandon” and at an “insatiable” pace, frequently creating on several canvases at a time.2
