J O H N RO LLI N S grew up in the Northeast and got his undergraduate degree in New Hampshire. He later obtained a doctorate in geology in Nebraska where he taught for a short time. As a professional geologist and avid outdoorsman, he traveled the world exploring for oil on most continents. He spent many months in the most desolate spaces on the planet with only his pack on his back. Despite the hardships of remote travel, experiencing several airplane crashes and dealing with numerous bouts of malaria, he was a very successful and admired oil geologist. While in the Far East, he was approached by local merchants wanting to sell him Chinese porcelain pieces. He was intrigued with the beauty, quality and history behind them and he started his collection. He used his spare time during his many years in Indonesia studying the history of ancient porcelain and seeking out more pieces. He subsequently added to his collection through auction acquisitions.

ABOUT THe ARTIST

2021

Nova Scotian native Jack L. Gray was always drawn by the sea and especially through his art. The artist lived much of his life on various sailing boats, witnessing firsthand the last of the schooner inland fishery, to capturing the industrial harbor of New York, in Gray’s art, the sea abounds. So, it is no wonder that there is an amusing antidote where Gray, during Arther Lismer’s life drawing class in Montreal, was observed drawing the hull of a boat instead of the model. To this, Lismer stated that had it been a boat drawing class, Gray would have been drawing a nude. So, turning to the sea, Gray produced a body of work that remains highly sought after, and although marine in nature, contains diverse subjects from dory fishing to aircraft carriers in battle. And a range in territory of the Canadian maritime down the east coast of the US to Florida.

ABOUT THe ARTIST

2136

Landscape painter of the Hudson River School, an apprentice to, and lifelong friend of Frederic Edwin Church, McEntee was a fully elected member of the National Academy of Design in 1861. McEntee kept a series of journals, from which we have much of our knowledge about the Gilded Age painters of the Hudson River School. One of the charter residents of Richard Morris Hunt's Tenth Street Studio, and frequent traveler with fellow artists Sanford Robinson Gifford, Worthington Whittredge, John Ferguson Weir, and Eastman Johnson, McEntee’s work was darker and more melancholy than that of his compatriots. While many fellow artists painted with a bright spring-like pallet, McEntee favored a darker, usually Fall type pallet, resulting is what was chronicled as “moody.”

“Generally considered one of the greatest visual artists in the history of art, “ Rembrant Van Rijn was an expert in three different media, and featured a diverse range in style as well as subjects from figurative, genre, and landscape scenes to the historical, biblical, and even mythical. His contributions to art came at a wealthy and prosperous time known as the Dutch Golden Age.

While his later years saw personal and financial hardships, his art was always in favor and his etchings were in demand during and sold well in his lifetime.

Copied from the original, late 19th c. From the Royal Trust Collection: RCIN 912491. “A drawing of eight heads; there are three grotesques in the top tier and three male heads, possibly all of the same subject, in the middle tier. In the lower tier are two heads of male and female grotesques, facing each other in profile. As in RL 12493, these heads were copied from an extensive series of Leonardo’s grotesques. The first two here are a study in morphological contrasts - a sloping forehead opposite a beetling brow, a long pointed nose opposite a flat nose and so on. The ape-like creature with a monstrous lip at upper right is an extreme example of Leonardo’s ugly old women, and one of his few genuinely disturbing, rather than comic, inventions. The woman at lower right with an elaborate coiffure is yet another satire on aged vanity.

Gary R. Haynes (1945-2021)

G

ROWING UP IN KNOXVILLE, TENNESSEE, GARY HAYNES revealed his passion for art early on, taking mail-order drawing lessons in high school while saving money to attend art school. After working for a year, he left home to attend the Harris School of Advertising Art in Nashville, but after two years took a job in the advertising department at a grocery company, painting store ads… Eggs for 39 Cents. He took night classes at the University of Tennessee and watercolor lessons with Carl Sublett. It was the late 1960s, Andrew Wyeth’s first book had been published, and Sublett was painting with Wyeth, coming back to Tennessee with stacks of delicious tempera paintings. Gary started following the Wyeths’ work closely, particularly Andrew’s, and longed to see where he painted.

Haynes’ career took him to a leading ad agency in Nashville, and from the art side of the business to the “business side of the business.” Over 25 years he grew it into a powerhouse, became its owner and ultimately sold it. Through the decades, he and his wife, JoAnne, would visit Maine, quietly collecting, ultimately opening Haynes Galleries in Thomaston and in Nashville. “I wanted to find the places Andrew Wyeth painted. I wanted to see them for myself—I sought his point of view, his perspective.” When Haynes got to Maine, he found it. “I saw a glorious sky, a wonderful landscape, great people,” he recalls. He began painting again. Maine Home + Design called his collection “so valuable in its artistic significance that it could easily be featured in one of the world’s finest museums.” Yet Haynes, who knew every work intimately, established his galleries as places where people came not only to admire the art, but to be inspired by it. “In addition to hanging the work on the walls and enjoying it, there are lessons to be learned,” he said. And he yearned to share those inspirations with others. A tireless supporter of the arts, arts education and the potential of the fine art economy, he was active in the Portrait Society of America and countless other organizations dedicated to the craft. A victim of the COVID-19 pandemic, Gary died on January 26, 2021 at the age of 75, having accomplished much but with ambitions cut unexpectedly short.

ABOUT THe ARTIST

John Singer Sargent was the most famous expatriate artist and portrait painter of his era. An equally awe-inspiring painter and watercolorist, Sargent was born in Italy to American parents, and studied in Paris under Emile Auguste Carolus-Duran. It was the influence of Duran’s “dispensing with the traditional academic approach which required careful drawing and underpainting, in favor of the alla prima method of working directly on the canvas with a loaded brush "which influenced the style Sargent is famous for.

ABOUT THe ARTIST

3063

American realist painter, and film maker, Bo Bartlett’s work is depicted in a grand narrative style while focusing on the everyday commonplace to the idiosyncratic. The artist splits time between Columbus, SC and Wheaton Island, Maine. Both places are the settings to his painting style which often elevates friends and family to a mythical scale and dreamlike state of his finished work. Bartlett’s work often causes one to pause, because while it is rooted in realism, there is an underlying surrealism which feels unnatural and causes one to reflect on the open-ended story before them. Bartlett has been featured in numerous solo shows, notably at Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts and the Farnsworth Museum.

ABOUT THe ARTIST

Painter of the often “unnoticed rhythms and subtleties of his surroundings,” artist Tim Allen Lawson creates paintings with texture and layers “to create the abstraction and nuanced depth he feels in nature and the world around him.” His work is most characterized by rural and small town life of his time in Sheridan, Wyoming and Rockport, Maine. A student of the American Academy of Art, Chicago and the Lyme Academy of Fine Arts in Old Lyme, Connecticut, Allen was chosen by the President and First Lady to create the painting for the 2008 White House Christmas Card. While collected nationally, both in public and private collections, Allen’s work is included locally in the Farnsworth Art Museum and the Portland Museum of Art.

Conditions of Sale Preserva�on Genera�onTM

Please Note: Our Conditions of Sale have recently changed TERMS OF SALE: By registering to bid on any lot or any participation in an auction at Thomaston Place Auction Galleries (TPAG), you (the bidder or agent bidding on behalf of others, ref. par.13) agrees to be bound by these Conditions of Sale. 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; 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. Please take time to familiarize yourself with our terms 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. We will make every effort to answer all submitted questions in a timely manner however, we cannot guarantee that a request submitted 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 purposes. 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, at his/her own expense, 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.

SOLD: $13,200 This miniature Persian Qur’an was brought to us on Free Appraisal Day. The consignor’s father was a US diplomat who purchased it as a gift for his wife in the 1950s.
