“View from the Sprague House, Prouts Neck, Maine” (off Winslow Homer Road), a seascape from the shore, oil on canvas, signed lower left, inscribed “To my friend Sprague” and dated 1905, in the original hand carved gilt matched corner Arts & Crafts frame, OS: 32 1/2” x 37 1/2”, SS: 22” x 27”. Very good, untouched condition. $100,000 - $200,000 PROVENANCE: Gift from the artist to Phineas W. Sprague. Descended through the family. Joseph Rodefer DeCamp (1858-1923) American Impressionist from Boston, one of the avant-garde group “The Ten”, which like parallel events on the Continent would show, provided a transition from the more staid academic studio schools, emphasizing plein-aire painting and a focus on light and atmosphere created by the use of loosely applied brilliant color. His portraits were more traditional, having studied under Frank Duveneck in Munich when young (both were raised in Cincinnati), and always remaining a member of the ‘Boston School’ of portraiture. But it was his landscapes and seascapes, transformed by time spent at Annisquam, Massachusetts and Maine, that would inspire generations of American painters. Few of DeCamp’s landscapes exist today, as many were destroyed in a tragic studio fire in Boston at the Harcourt Building in 1904; his Maine studio also burned. It is thought that fewer than 100 canvases survived between the two.

CONDITION OF ITEMS & WARRANTY INFORMATION: Thomaston Place Auction Galleries (TPAG) makes every attempt to uphold the highest standards in the auction industry. Our goal is to consistently deliver the highest level of products and services to our customers. Our catalog descriptions represent what we have deemed appropriate to identify each object and we stand behind our descriptions as they relate to authenticity, however all items for sale are offered “as is,” and it is the bidder’s responsibility (present, absentee, phone or online) to determine the exact condition of each item. Our warranty does come with parameters and it is the bidder’s responsibility to understand those parameters fully. Please take time to familiarize yourself with what is covered and make your bidding decisions accordingly. 1) All items are “as is,” and it is the bidder’s responsibility to inspect, research, and determine the authenticity of all items upon which bids are placed. Determination of age, materials, condition, quality, authenticity, classification, purported history and perceived value, regardless of what is written or said by TPAG, is the sole responsibility of the bidder/buyer. 2) TPAG nor its consignor(s) makes any expressed or implied guarantees, warranties or representations in regard to the property merchantability or the correctness of the catalog or other description of the authenticity of authorship, physical condition, size, quality, medium or material, period, culture, source, rarity, importance, provenance, exhibition, literature or historic relevance of the property or otherwise. 3) The absence of any reference to the condition of a lot does not in any way imply that the lot is in perfect condition or completely free of wear, imperfections or the effects of aging. 4) Condition Reports for items may be requested up to 48 hours prior to the date of the auction. We will make every effort to answer all submitted questions in a timely manner however, we cannot guarantee that a request submitted within 48 hours will be answered prior to the auction date. Neither TPAG nor its consignor makes any guarantee or warranty with regards to these reports. It is the buyer’s responsibility to examine each item and make their own assessment prior to the auction.

5) All items are sold for display purpose. If electrical, mechanical or other working parts are inoperable, even if working at the time of sale, TPAG is not liable due to the inherent nature of the age of antiques and items. 6) Goods made from or containing materials from protected species - TPAG does not accept any responsibility or liability for the sale of items containing materials from protected species or for any omissions in marketing or labeling goods as containing materials from protected species. Such materials include, but are not limited to ivory from elephants and walruses, tortoise shell, crocodile skin, whalebone, rhinoceros horn, some species of coral and certain woods. Restrictions on the importation, exportation, sale, transfer, and/or possession of goods containing materials from protected species derive from international, federal and state laws and regulations promulgated thereunder. It is the sole responsibility of the buyer to research and satisfy the requirements of any laws and regulations that apply to the import and export of property as described in the aforementioned paragraphs. All buyers agree to comply with any and all domestic and international restrictions and licensing on the trade of protected species as a condition of the sale. The inability or delay in obtaining permits, licenses or other permissions to import or export goods containing material from protected species will not constitute a basis for rescission or cancellation of the sale or the delay of payment of purchased items in accordance with these bidder Terms and Conditions of Sale. (If you are not able to make what you consider to be a comfortable decision about an item or if you believe an item may be incorrectly described in our catalog, we suggest that you refrain from bidding on said item.) RETURNS 7) Items may be considered for return under very specific conditions and within 30 days after the auction. It is important that you pay for and acquire your item in a timely fashion. In the event we have made a significant attribution or disclosure of condition error such that there is a major effect on the value of an item, please contact us immediately (within 30 days after the auction.) We will review under the following circumstances:

A. The item has been paid for and the buyer has possession of the item. B. The buyer must have the item reviewed by an independent party who is approved by TPAG, and is a recognized expert within the field of the item in question. C. The expert provides a written report with specific and detailed reasons as to why the item is not as it was represented to be. The written report must be submitted to TPAG. D. Our descriptions include what we deem to accurately portray an item’s general condition. However, opinions about condition can vary and as such, the auctioneer shall make the final determination in the possible event of a refund. E. The timeline for this process is 30 days from the date of the auction. In the event a committee or review board must convene to review the item, TPAG must be notified in order to extend the time beyond the 30 day limit. Otherwise after 30 days, ALL SALES ARE FINAL. F. Once TPAG has accepted the ruling of the expert(s), the buyer is to return the item to TPAG at buyer’s expense. In order to be eligible for a refund, the item must be returned in the same condition it was in when it left TPAG’s possession. G. In the event a refund is issued, it will be for the cost of the item, buyer’s premium and any sales tax paid. The refund will be made in the same form as the payment of the original transaction. 8) No Chargeback Policy - Purchasers agree that disputes of any nature will not be resolved by a credit card chargeback and further agree to refrain from filing any chargeback claim against Thomaston Place Auction Galleries and/or its credit card merchant. By purchasing with us, the purchaser waives the right to initiate a chargeback and furthermore agrees to pay a minimum of $500 plus administrative fees, attorney fees, and/or any other charges associated with responding to said chargeback. 9) Jewelry, Timepieces, Stamps & Coins: All sales are final. There are no returns or refunds for any reason. Jewelry and items with mechanical parts such as clocks, timepieces, mechanical banks, music boxes, etc. are sold “as-is” on the day of sale and may require servicing.
