ABOUT THe ARTIST

Henry Moret was a French impressionist painter whose earlier works were more classical and have a similarity with Corot and Courbet. They are moody and poetic in nature. Like many French artists of the day, Moret was represented by Paul Durand-Ruel and completed over 600 oils and some 800 drawings and watercolors. In the 1890s he was heavily influenced by Paul Gauguin and the artists at Pont-Aven in Brittany. But, after 1900 Moret was more influenced by impressionism using small flecks of paint instead of the broader strokes of a decade earlier. And it is this fusion of two fundamentally opposing styles, PontAven and Impressionism, that was perhaps Henry Moret’s greatest achievement.

A CHAMPION OF AMERICAN REALISM 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.

“I wanted to find the places Andrew Wyeth painted. I wanted to see them for myself…” —Gary R. Haynes

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. Still, the momentum of his life’s work will continue for some time to come.

The July installment of SPLENDOR featured PART I of THE HAYNES COLLECTION which saw the following piece by JOHN SINGER SARGENT go for $60k! JOHN SINGER SARGENT (MA/UK/ITALY, 1856-1925) Sir William Headworth Williamson, 10th Baronet charcoal on paper, 1924 114 For additional details and images visit our website www.thomastonauction.com

ABOUT THe ARTIST

A prolific artist, illustrator and art family patriarch, NC Wyeth is said to have produced over 3,000 paintings and illustrated 112 books. Best known for his work with Scribner Classics, NC Wyeth illustrated 25 books, most notably “Treasure Island.”

His painting is perhaps best categorized in American regionalism similar in execution to Thomas Hart Benton or Grant Wood, but NC Wyeth is not easily pinned down as he worked rapidly and often experimented in style and execution. Many of his pieces are monumental in scale with extraordinary compositional skill in a manner that was “befitting his energetic and grand vision.” He could finish a large piece in as little as 3 hours.

One of the foremost artists of the 20th century dividing his time between Maine and Pennsylvania, Andrew Wyeth is synonymous with American art.

ABOUT THe ARTIST

Grandson to N.C. Wyeth, son to Andrew Wyeth, and “artistic heir” to the Brandywine School tradition, American realist Jamie Wyeth has forged a style all his own. While incorporating elements of his father and perhaps more stylistically in line with his grandfather, it could be argued that Jamie’s “artistic reach is broader. He excels in drawing, lithography, etching, egg tempera, watercolor, and mixed media”.

ABOUT THe ARTIST

Born in Russia, artist Louise Nevelson had humble beginnings in Rockland, ME where her father ran a lumber yard. Moving to NY in 1920 to attend the Arts Student League and eventually she traveled to Germany to study under Hans Hoffman. After a stint in Paris, she would return to the United States and for a brief time in Mexico where she was an assistant of Diego Rivera. In 1941 she had her first solo show featuring assemblage sculptures of found objects pieced together and painted matte black. These sculptures were a “harbinger of feminist and installation art that rose to prominence in America in the mid-twentieth century.” While primarily known for sculpture, she also worked in printmaking, painting, and drawing.

THE CAMDEN GARDEN CLUB WAS FORMED IN 1915 AND IS ONE OF THE OLDEST GARDEN CLUBS IN MAINE. his year, the club will hold its 74th Annual House and Garden Tour, featuring some of Camden’s finest homes and gardens. People plan their vacations around this event, which is always held on the third Thursday in July. Last year, my lovely wife was invited to create plein aire paintings of the gardens on the tour. We’re offering some today to raise funds for the Camden Garden Club’s Scholarship Fund. This fund has for many years supported local students who are interested in careers in environmental or horticultural sciences and which has helped them attend schools including the University of Maine and the Yale School of Forestry. These paintings offer a rare and unique look at some of the Midcoast’s loveliest private gardens. You can hang one of these beauties on your wall and know that you’re supporting a great cause!

ABOUT THe ARTIST

Forced to work from an early age, the artist Milton Avery, practiced his art in obscurity for nearly half his life. In the 1920s – 30s Avery would continue to hone his craft at the Art Students League of New York where Roy Neuburger would purchase over 100 of his pieces. Neuburger was able to promote and donate several of Avery’s pieces to museums around the world and from this point on, Avery was recognized as “seminal to American Abstract painting.” Often considered the “American Matisse,” his creative compositions with colorful and poetic drawings were at one point considered too radical for the conservative and too representational for the Abstract Expressionists.

An Italian physician prior to World War II, Alberto Burri was captured by British forces in Tunisia and turned over to Americans and eventually to a POW camp in Hereford, Texas.

Upon his liberation in 1946, the artist would move to Rome and focus exclusively on painting.

ABOUT THe ARTIST

3338

The self-proclaimed founder of Cubism, Albert Gleizes was painter, theoretician, and philosopher. His earlier paintings from the late 1890s till about 1908 resemble the impressionists Alfred Sisley and Camille Pissarro but there is also a clear deviation from Impressionism in them where one could potentially foresee the Cubist work which would soon follow.

ABOUT THe ARTIST

Synonymous with Pop Art, Andy Warhol’s early years were in Pennsylvania, studying at the Carnegie Institute of Technology where he received a BFA. Warhol would move to New York in 1949 and soon would obtain success as a commercial illustrator. By 1960 he began producing paintings and drawings of highly recognizable commercial products like Coca-Cola and Campbells soup cans, with his first solo show in 1962. Eventually substituting these early drawings with the readily reproducible silk screen process, Warhol was intentionally blurring the line between commercial illustration and fine art. His famed studio, “The Factory” industrialized the art process itself by lifting the commonplace and elevating it to art. By the 1970s after surviving an assassination attempt, Warhols art largely shifted to portrait work of the rich and famous. All with bold color, hard lines, and easily recognizable subject matter, Andy Warhol became as famous as the subjects portrayed.

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.

continued


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. The lack of a condition report does not imply that the item or lot is free from imperfections, defects or wear and tear of aging. This includes but is not limited to deficient stones, needed repair or defects.

GENERAL INFORMATION: 10) Bidder recognition: The auctioneer shall only accept bids from properly registered bidders who place bids live on the auction floor, by absentee bid, telephone bid, or online bid. The auctioneer shall acknowledge the top bidder as the winner. In the event of a disputed bid, the auctioneer will have sole and exclusive authority to resolve the dispute and determine the winning bidder. 11) The auctioneer has sole discretion and reserves the right to: A. Reject or refuse to accept any bid or bidder that may be deemed inappropriate for any reason. B.

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. The octagonal banner box, set with semi-precious stones, contained an octagonal Qur’an with gilt leather covers. At auction, this unique and rare item started a bidding war that far exceeded the consignor’s expectations!
