                  Provenance: The Friedle‑Garrison Collection, New Orleans.

Note: The impressive sculpture offered here is after of one of the prototypes of the “Venus Italica” by celebrated sculptor, Antonio Canova (Italian, 1757-1822). The earliest iteration of the piece, completed in 1811, featured additional drapery which provided more coverage to the disconcerted Venus who is depicted tousled and undressed, as if startled by an intruder. The marble in this lot is after the later version of the “Venus Italica,” which Canova revisited almost ten years subsequent to his 1811 masterwork. Unlike its predecessor, the fabric in the second version is shown hanging loose in Venus’s proper right hand, and her expression and posture appear more relaxed and casual.

Note: A native of Bohemia where he trained as a cabinetmaker, Wenzel Friedrich immigrated to San Antonio, Texas in 1853 and subsequently opened a furniture business that sold revival pieces to wealthy Texans. By 1880, Friedrich began crafting his innovative horn pieces after being inspired by similar European examples and seeing the plentiful availability of longhorn in Texan stockyards. He went on to exhibit horn furniture at several world expositions, including the 1884 Cotton Centennial Exposition in New Orleans, where he received a gold medal. This recognition, along with a cultural fascination with the American West during a period of rapid westward expansion, made his pieces immensely popular in both the U.S. and Europe. He sold pieces to many wealthy East Coast clients and to world dignitaries including Queen Victoria and Kaiser Wilhelm I.

109.           American Renaissance Carved and Inlaid Rosewood Parlor Suite, late 19th c., attr. to Herter Brothers, New York, incl. settee and 2 slipper chairs, bellflower motif inlay, tapered legs, casters, settee h. 34 1/2 in., w. 57 in., d. 27 in.; chair h. 32 in., w. 23 in., d. 21 in.  $3000/5000

Note: The overall form and modeling of the parlor suite in the present lot is indicative of the influence of French design in Herter Brothers furniture—a stylistic shift evident in the firm’s work after Christian Herter’s residency in Paris from 1869-1870. The distinctive bellflower inlay and gilt-incised motifs on this parlor suite are nearly identical to a chair made by the firm for the music room of the LeGrand Lockwood Mansion in Norwalk, Connecticut.

                  Provenance: Marine Arts Gallery, Salem, MA, 1981.  

Note: Along with fellow artists Nicolas Cammillieri and various members of the Roux family, Joseph Pellegrin helped to transform the bustling seaport of Marseilles into a center of marine painting. Pellegrin was admired for his technical accuracy and clear, soft color palette. Adhering to the preferred style of the time and region, he concentrated on the characteristics of the particular vessel, only briefly detailing the background. As with all accomplished ship portraitists, he had a true understanding of the workings of a ship and the sea, and his precise depictions made him popular with ship owners and mariners. Ernest Lane, captain of the ship depicted here, was from the small fishing village of Annisquam, MA. He was a member of a prominent sea-faring family; his brother and nephews were all captains of ships working out of nearby Gloucester Harbor. Lane later served in the Navy during the Civil War.

                  Provenance: Acquired from the artist; thence by descent.

Note: Descended in an important New Orleans family, this meticulously detailed watercolor by George Louis Viavant of a pintail drake was acquired directly from the artist and has been maintained in pristine condition. A lifelong New Orleanian, Viavant’s paintings of fresh game from his hunts along the swamps and bayous surrounding the city were his particular forte.  Only two artists in Louisiana, Viavant and Achille Perelli, worked predominantly in the nature morte genre, an historic and nationally popular subject matter which seemed a perfect fit given Louisiana’s reputation as a hunter’s paradise with a wide variety of wildlife species.  During his career, Viavant successfully invented a tool for modifying a camel-hair brush that allowed him to scrumble the gouache and watercolor until he achieved the exact hues and texture needed in the brief time allowed by the medium. He often spent three to four days on one painting, and his attention to detail accomplished “a completely accurate image in line, texture, and color of the fish and fowl he and his friends hunted throughout his lifetime.” According to Viavant biographer and expert George E. Jordan regarding the pintail drake offered here: "This is Viavant at his finest! Every piece is detailed to perfection! Such a beauty!"

Note: From a young age, Frederic Remington enjoyed sketching soldiers and cowboys, as well as maintaining an avid interest in journalism.  Studying at Yale Art School and the Art Students League of New York, Remington also worked for his uncle's newspaper before moving to the West, where he attempted ranching, owning a hardware store, and operating a saloon.  Although these occupations were not his ultimate career, the experiences he gained in the West and the sketches he made allowed him to capitalize on America's interest in western life and create illustrations, drawings, and paintings based on his observations.

Working for newspapers and magazines, Remington became a correspondent, producing sketches and drawings, as well as taking photographs.  He gained great commercial success and also began creating bronze sculptures.  In 1898, William Randolph Hearst commissioned Remington to cover the Spanish-American War as a war correspondent.  This conflict was the result of Cuba attempting to liberate their island from Spanish control.  America joined the fight and ultimately defeated Spain, gaining sovereignty over Cuba, Puerto Rico, Guam, and the Philippines.  The drawing presented here depicts the soldier encampment of the 25th U.S. Infantry in Key West, Florida, during preparations for the fighting in Cuba.  With his careful pen and ink cross-hatching technique, Remington gracefully captured the everyday work of making the camp ready for the upcoming battle.

142A.         Frederic Sackrider Remington (American, 1861‑1909), "Landscape from The Song of Hiawatha", pen and ink on paper, signed lower left, inscribed "349/Landscape" upper left and "IV Image 83" en verso, 12 1/2 in. x 15 3/4 in., framed. $3000/5000

                  Provenance: Collection of Houghton, Mifflin and Company, Boston, MA; Kennedy Galleries, Inc., New York, NY, Dec. 12, 1973.

                  Ill.: Longfellow, Henry Wadsworth. The Song of Hiawatha. Boston, MA: Houghton, Mifflin and Company, 1890, p. 83. 

Note: Throughout Frederic Remington's career, he had a fascination with Native American life and culture.  Having worked in the American West and meticulously sketched and photographed western subjects, Remington soon began creating illustrations and paintings with Native American subject matter.  When Henry Wadsworth Longfellow's The Song of Hiawatha was published in 1855 with no illustrations, Remington was inspired to create drawings to accompany the text.  Around 1890, his first illustrated edition of the book was published by Houghton, Mifflin, and Company, and the present lot is a pen and ink drawing that was reproduced for Chapter IX - "Hiawatha and the Pearl Feather." This lovely landscape with dappled light on the tree trunks accompanies the verse below and reflects upon on the beauty of Longfellow's words.

 

On the shores of Gitche Gumee,

Of the shining Big-Sea-Water,

Stood Nokomis, the old woman,

Pointing with her finger westward,

O'er the water pointing westward,

To the purple clouds of sunset.

Fiercely the red sun descending

Burned his way along the heavens,

Set the sky on fire behind him,

As war-parties, when retreating,

Burn the prairies on their war-trail;

- Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

                  Provenance: Acquired from the artist.  

Note: Returning to Louisiana from studies at the Art Center College of Design in Los Angeles in 1967, George Rodrigue dedicated himself to capturing his heritage and the landscape of Acadiana in his paintings. Rodrigue determined to depict Louisiana differently from those who had preceded him, and his focus became the oak trees and their relationship to the sky, land and Cajun people. In the stunning work offered here from 1970, the oak tree dominates the composition, and its unique shape against the glowing sky makes this canvas truly stand out among Rodrigue’s earliest landscapes.

        

155.           George Rodrigue (American/Louisiana, 1944‑2013), "Louisiana Bayou with Bridge" and "Louisiana Bayou with Cabin", 1970, 2 oils on canvas, each signed lower left, signed, dated and artist stamps en verso, both 8 in. x 10 in., framed alike in original artist frames. (2 pcs.) $15000/25000

                  Provenance: Commissioned from the artist, 1970.  

Note: George Rodrigue’s earliest landscapes in the late 1960s often included additional elements such as cabins and small figures. As he worked to refine his unique vision of Louisiana, he most often abandoned these components in favor of the oak tree alone. The silhouetted oak tree in the background, cropped at the top, and a rich, dark foreground dominated his compositions. As he began to develop local supporters, Rodrigue was introduced to the famous Louisiana architect, A. Hays Town, in the late 1960s, and his advice to the young artist transformed Rodrigue’s approach.  Town told him to “treat each painting like a jewel, because if it is precious to you, it will be precious to others as well.” Commissioned in 1970, this rare, early pair of landscapes featuring a cabin and bridge exemplifies Rodrigue’s care and ever-increasing success following this sage advice. At the same time, Rodrigue began to receive critical acclaim for his work. The Louisiana State Art Commission sponsored a Rodrigue exhibition at the Louisiana State Museum in the Old State Capitol in Baton Rouge in 1970, featuring seventy oak tree paintings. His work was also featured in an exhibition at the Beaumont Art Museum, now the Museum of Southeast Texas, which opened to glowing reviews in August of 1971.

Note: Chicago-born William Hemmerling moved to Ponchatoula, Louisiana as a young man. While he had a lengthy creative career as a decorator for Sears, his calling as an artist would not begin until 2002 after his retirement. His time as a “painter” (as he would refer to himself) was short-lived yet impactful and began at the Louisiana Furniture and Art Gallery in Ponchatoula when he was invited to display his artwork after he remarked to the proprietors: “I think you need more color on your walls.”

Friend and fellow artist, George Rodrigue, described him as such: “He paints from his heart, from his soul, he really paints what he feels...He has no boundaries. I think he's a free spirit. He's real sincere about himself. And the paintings are honest and straightforward. It's beautiful art." This open sincerity and wholesomeness is well reflected in the important painting offered here. School children waiting in line are depicted with sensitive grace, and the innocence of the artist and his intent are mirrored in the style and subject matter, resulting in a touching portrayal of the purity of childhood.

                  Provenance: Acquired from the artist, New Orleans, LA, 1991.

                  Ill.: Rodrigue, George. Blue Dog. New York: Viking Studio Books, 1994, ch. 9.  

Note: In 1990, George Rodrigue filled his New Orleans gallery with Blue Dog paintings for Super Bowl XXIV, attracting the attention of both collectors and the national media. These early paintings in the series originated from and still bore striking similarity to their loup-garou predecessors, with textured fur and a light blue-grey color. The Blue Dog remained within the Louisiana landscape of Rodrigue’s Cajun series, however, he began for the first time to think of them as something outside of the bayous and swamps. A phenomenon had begun, and the early Blue Dogs very soon shifted into a number of different series as the artist explored new directions. “My Moon My Life” offered here represents the brief, but highly important, transitional moment for Rodrigue, bridging the Cajun series and Blue Dog series.

“My Moon My Life” also served as the album cover of “Dans Le Creux Du Bois (In the Deep of the Woods)” by John “The Cajun Balladeer” DuBois. Born in Vermillion Parish, DuBois is credited with preserving many forgotten classic Cajun and French tunes, passed on to him by his grandparents and childhood music teacher. He recorded Cajun ballads for the Folk Music Archives in the Library of Congress and was a popular festival performer. A friend of Rodrigue, DuBois provided the music for the opening party of Galerie Blue Dog in Carmel-by-the-Sea, California in 1991 while Chef Paul Prudhomme catered for the crowds.

In the book, Rodrigue is quoted about this painting: “In My Secret Garden was inspired by my wife, who told me that she has a secret garden--- a private sanctuary all her own.  As I peer over the wall into her world, I am touched to see that her favorite thing to do is to plant blue flowers for me.”

Frontiers of Enchantment: An Artist's Adventures in Africa. New York: Simon and Schuster, 1938. (2 pcs.)  $5000/8000

Note: Trained at the Royal Academy in Munich, William Robinson Leigh returned to the United States and began working as a magazine illustrator.  Although he lived in New York primarily, Leigh often traveled, particularly to the American West to sketch scenes for his illustrations and paintings.  He also visited Africa in 1926 and wrote a book based on his experiences there titled Frontiers of Enchantment: An Artist's Adventures in Africa

Leigh enjoyed writing about and painting western scenes, including the Grand Canyon, cowboys, and Native Americans; he was particularly interested in the Hopi and Navajo nations.  In the painting presented here, Leigh portrays a young woman carrying a water vessel in a cloth carrier slung over her back. The Hopi people of Walpi, Arizona have lived in that area since 900 AD, and they have maintained their traditions, such as carrying water in this manner—"Hopi women preferred this method to balancing pottery jars on their heads as the women at Acoma and Zuni did."  Many of the villages on the mesa tops are still without running water today, and Leigh's portrayal of an important cultural tradition helps to teach others about the Hopi nation.  The beautiful brushwork of the cliffs, woman's clothing, and reflection on the surface of the water are well executed and exhibit Leigh's skill.

Note: Known as the "Audubon of the 1980s," C. Ford Riley has spent his career documenting the wildlife and their habitats surrounding his hometown of Jacksonville, Florida.  With a particular passion for birds, Riley meticulously sketches the animals and their environment before beginning a painting, and he then uses layers of washes and paint to add depth to his work.  Although the paintings look extremely realistic, Riley maintains that he includes a "multitude of brush strokes which are probably more commonly associated with Impressionism."  In the painting presented here, Riley's technique is employed to depict a sun-dappled pathway through a wooded area of Florida.

Note: This delightful painted wood sculpture by Ida Kohlmeyer is part of the same series as the monumental public work entitled “Box of Artificial Flowers #6” that was recently installed at the intersection of Poydras Street and Loyola Avenue in New Orleans.  Kohlmeyer’s playful style and mastery of color is well displayed in this intricate design. True to her other sculptural masterpieces, this particular work explores perspective and dimension as each angle reveals a new and exciting composition. As Michael Plante noted: “Because a single color scheme or decorative element seldom exists on more than one plane, the colors, patterns, and even the profile of the given piece change depending upon the angle from which it is viewed."

175.           Jennifer Smith Rogers (American/South Carolina, b. 1973), "St. Michael's Glory", 2007, oil on linen, signed lower left, signed, titled, dated and inscribed en verso, 34 in. x 24 in., framed.  $2500/3500

Note: Charleston native Jennifer Smith Rogers often paints plein-air. Whether capturing the reoccurring themes of expansive skies or the city rooftops of Charleston, as seen in the work offered here, she strives “to capture a dramatic sense of light and mood.” Featured prominently in the scene depicted here is St. Michael’s Episcopal Church, built in the 1750s, on Broad and Meeting Streets. While Rogers has depicted locations worldwide in her work, she finds herself routinely drawn back to the familiarity of the Lowcountry and her hometown. Rogers' broad, impressionistic brushstrokes of the sky and clouds at sunset also capture her fascination with both natural and artificial light sources reflected on a cityscape.

                  Ill.: Rodrigue, George and Lawrence S. Freundlich. Blue Dog. New York: Viking Studio Books, 1994, epilogue.  

Note: George Rodrigue had a long history with Mardi Gras, first as a child entering costume competitions in his hometown of New Iberia, Louisiana and later in the 1970s declaring himself the tongue-in-cheek King of Mardi Gras in Lafayette. Outfitted in full regalia, Rodrigue hosted an annual and infamous social gathering for the passing of the parades and built a viewing platform in front of his house on Jefferson Street. 

“I displayed a huge banner that said ‘The Real King.’ Two parades passed my house on Mardi Gras Day. The party started small – just me and Tiffany [the original model for the Blue Dog] on the platform. Within three years we had 500 people, all throwing custom-designed Rodrigue doubloons.”  - George Rodrigue

In 1994, Rodrigue ruled as the official king of Washington Mardi Gras. The Mystick Krewe of Louisianians is comprised of Louisiana’s congressional delegation and each year hosts a private Mardi Gras celebration for 5,000 guests in Washington, D.C. The three-day event features Louisiana food, music, festival queens, parades, and an annual royal court.  Rodrigue is still remembered as one of the greatest kings in the over seventy year history of the celebration.

“It’s Good to be the King” from 1994 commemorates Rodrigue’s reign of Washington Mardi Gras, while drawing inspiration from his lifetime of celebrating the holiday. This colorful self-portrait of the artist includes a disco-inspired regalia, gold medallion harkening to his celebrations in Lafayette and the iconic Blue Dog so associated with the artist situated within the Louisiana landscape Rodrigue always called home.

                  Exh.: "Louisiana Landscapes", The Gallery at Manship Theatre, Baton Rouge, LA, 2012.  

Note: Baton Rouge artist Lisa Di Stefano draws inspiration from the Louisiana landscape, not only its beauty and atmosphere, but also its struggles. To represent the loss of wetlands and barrier islands, her landscapes have the feeling of dissolving along the edges with fragmented foliage.  Low horizon lines allow for expansive skies and bold planes of color, particularly evident in the large-scale canvas offered here. Di Stefano’s skill in abstraction and masterful use of color are apparent throughout her paintings. A founding member of Studio 801, an artist cooperative in Baton Rouge, Di Stefano is also an artist-in-residence and Membership Director of the NUNU Arts and Culture Collective in Arnaudville, Louisiana.

180.           Mark Kelvin Horton (American/South Carolina, b. 1960), "Golden/Silent Marsh", oil on canvas, signed lower right, 40 in. x 30 in., framed.  $1800/2500

Note: Mark Kelvin Horton was born in North Carolina and spent eighteen years in New York City working in the design and marketing world.  Throughout his time in New York, he would paint, sketch and visit museums to study the old masters. In 2001, Horton left the city for South Carolina to devote his life to art.  During his many trips to museums, his discovery of George Inness, Hermann Herzog and Edward Steichen drew him to landscape and led to the decision to focus on the genre in the South. When painting a landscape, Horton’s aim is to study the “full 360-degree scope of a place” and eschew a literal interpretation to focus instead on a simple, yet dramatic moment—taking a slice of a landscape to capture its spirit and its relation to human experience.  As evidenced in “Golden/Silent Marsh” offered here, light, its effect on objects and how that light can influence one's perspective is of great interest to the artist when determining this defining moment of a landscape.

Note: This significant Ida Kohlmeyer painting is remarkable for having been painted most likely just before Kohlmeyer met and studied with Hans Hoffman in 1956, making it one of her earliest ventures into abstraction. The neutral palette and expressionistic brushstrokes act as a precursor to her later explorations in color blocks and formations as influenced by her friend and mentor, Mark Rothko, and also demonstrate an artistic kinship to her sister and fellow beloved artist, Mildred Wohl, whose works often explored a similar color palette and aesthetic.

185.           Darrel Austin (American/Connecticut, 1907‑1994), "Redhead", 1963, oil on canvas, signed upper left, dated upper right, partial "Perls Galleries, New York, NY" label with artist, title and date on stretcher, 10 in. x 8 in., framed. $2000/3000

                  Provenance: Perls Galleries, New York, NY; The Estate of Caroline P. Ireland.  

Note: Darrel Austin was born in Raymond, Washington and raised in Portland. He started his art career by completing murals for the Works Progress Administration at the University of Oregon medical school. After a solo exhibition in Hollywood in 1938, Austin moved to New York City where art dealer Klaus Perls discovered his work and represented him for the rest of his life. The work offered here is characteristic of Austin's enchanted landscapes in which he often painted a central female figure or animal within a deeply wooded setting. The redheaded woman and the background are painted with a palette knife in a technique often utilized by Austin and reminiscent of the style of artist Albert Pinkham Ryder.

186.           Ida Rittenberg Kohlmeyer (American/New Orleans, 1912‑1997), "Untitled (Still Life with Ceramics and Oranges)", 1980, oil on canvas, signed and dated lower right, 49 in. x 49 in., framed. $15000/25000

                  Provenance: The Estate of Caroline P. Ireland.  

Note: “Weak representational art is art tyrannized by nature. Weak abstract art squanders itself formlessly in its own emotionalism… a painted apple, no matter how much magic realism is brought to bear upon it, is abstraction if only because of the transposition it undergoes in being made of another substance.” – Ida Kohlmeyer

In the late 1970s and early 1980s, Ida Kohlmeyer reached an artistic impasse. In order to overcome this hurdle, she created a small group of paintings revisiting various themes both traditional and innovative. The painting offered here, an abstracted still life featuring oranges and ceramics, is one of a handful of canvases created in that time period and represents a fascinating and nostalgic return to representational painting long after Kohlmeyer had abandoned it in favor abstraction.  Her abstract symbolism, well-developed by this point, is carried into the classic subject matter in a way that makes the canvas instantly familiar as part of Kohlmeyer's unique visual language despite the inclusion of recognizable objects.

The overall form of this armoire is closely related to a cherrywood armoire found in St. Landry Parish with similar recessed-panel doors and a medial belt of drawers. Interestingly, the St. Landry Parish example has beehive feet of the same proportions as the feet noted on the present lot.

Note: The table offered here is identical in form, decoration, and proportions to a center table labeled by New York cabinetmakers John and Joseph W. Meeks, sold in these rooms on July 16, 2016. The printed paper label on the latter sold table bears the addresses of the company's wareroom and manufactory at 43 & 45 Broad Street in New York City and at 23 Chartres Street in New Orleans. In 1821, Joseph W. Meeks opened a warehouse in New Orleans and city directories listed the Meeks branch at 29 Chartres Street in 1830, 29 Chartres Street and 39 Royal Street in 1834, and 23 Chartres Street in 1838.

While center tables in a variety of designs are illustrated in the famous Meeks broadside of 1833, none exhibit the bold architectural quality of the present lot, distinguished by the complexly molded frieze and concave-sided standard. The collection of the New York State Museum in Albany includes a similar center table with a Meeks paper label bearing the addresses of No. 14 Vesey Street, New York, and 23 Chartres Street, New Orleans.

Note: The pair of sofas in the present lot feature the same overall form, proportions, and distinctively modeled shell carvings as a sofa from the Arlington Mansion in Natchez, Mississippi made by Philadelphia cabinetmaker Charles H.

Northern cabinetmakers, including White, crafted pieces specifically for the Southern market—the sofas offered here, though made in Philadelphia, were likely made for the parlor of a grand Southern home.

                  Provenance: Henry Plauché Dart (1853‑1934), thence by descent; Estate of Jane and Stewart Maunsell.  

Note: Born in Sweden, Bror Anders Wikstrom’s first career was that of a sailor, making numerous trips between the Netherlands and the United States.  The scenery from these voyages stayed with him when Wikstrom decided to become an artist.  Wikstrom worked in many different media throughout his career; he was an illustrator, printmaker, painter, and cartoonist, as well as spending time designing Carnival pageant sets in New Orleans.  Wikstrom taught art; he, along with Andres Molinary, Paul Poincy, and Achille Perrelli, founded the Artists’ Association of New Orleans, where young artists in the city could have lessons in drawing, oil painting, watercolor, and sculpting. 

Many of Wikstrom’s oil paintings harken back to his past at sea; he often portrayed ships sailing or in the harbor, using his keen sense of color and atmospheric effects to highlight the maritime vessels.  In the current lot, Wikstrom demonstrates his technical skills with a brush, depicting a hazy background and fine details for the rocks and boats with a neutral and mauve palette that suggests an early morning on the water.

          

304.           Noel Rockmore (American/New Orleans, 1928‑1995), "Self‑Portrait of the Artist", 1958, oil on canvas, signed, dated and inscribed "Painted in Brooklyn Heights" upper left, 50 in. x 28 in., framed. $5000/8000

                  Ill.: Marvin, Shirley, Rich Marvin and Tee Marvin. Noel Rockmore & Shirley Marvin: Our Journey to the Discovery of Rockmore. LaGrange, GA: Stephens Printing, 2013, cover photo.  

Note: Born the child of artists in New York City, Noel Rockmore was considered a prodigy at both the violin and art at a young age. At eighteen, Rockmore painted a self-portrait which was “the first oil he considered successful." This work would begin Rockmore's lifelong experimentation and exploration of the self-portrait, resulting in a series of paintings that document his location, appearance and artistic style throughout his life. At the time of the important self-portrait offered here, Rockmore was thirty years old and had already seen his work exhibited at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York and the Whitney Museum. The full-length work displays Rockmore’s confidence as an artist, with realistic details of his own features and aspects of the studio while the scene outside the window appears decidedly surrealistic. These are aspects that can be found in many of Rockmore’s most successful works - the blending of the fantastical and realistic within an urban landscape.

The illustration portrays two couples in evening clothes, as one of the women opens a flower arrangement.

Note: Studying at the Arts and Crafts Club of New Orleans and the Art Students League in New York, Martha Wright Ambrose had a distinct background in art, although she did not begin her art career in earnest until 1961 following the death of her husband. Throughout the rest of her life, Ambrose traveled in the United States, Mexico, Guatemala (where she was born), and Europe.  She was a prolific artist and enjoyed painting a wide variety of subject matter.  However, the care she took in documenting architecture, particularly that of New Orleans, displays her commitment to preserving scenes of the city.  The painting offered here is a lovely French Quarter view and shows a quieter side of neighborhood life with couples out for a leisurely stroll and a woman walking her dog.

                  Provenance: Acquired from the artist.             

408.           Emilie de Hoa LeBlanc (American/New Orleans, 1870‑1941, active Newcomb College, 1897‑1921), "The Praline Seller", watercolor on paper, unsigned, label and additional information on subject on backing, 19 1/2 in. x 13 3/8 in., framed. $1000/1500

                  Provenance: Anita de Hoa LeBlanc Breisacher.  

Note: Pralinieres, women who sold pralines on the streets of New Orleans, were some of the first women of color – along with coffee sellers, callas sellers and laundresses – to work for themselves as opposed to being employed as domestic help.  According to Newcomb College tradition, Mary Louise was the “praline lady” on Washington Avenue near the old campus of Newcomb College before it was moved to Broadway in 1918.  Depicted by several of Newcomb’s art students, including Sadie Irvine and Selina Bres, Mary Louise was a well-known figure in the Newcomb community, as was her daughter, Azelie, who took over her mother’s business after Mary Louise’s death.  The sensitively painted portrait presented here shows Mary Louise in her traditional scarf and tignon, an ensemble that many pralinieres of the time wore.  The lovely watercolor brushwork that Emilie de Hoa LeBlanc used to capture Mary Louise’s pensive expression is a testament to her skill as a painter.

          

409.           Dorothy Jurisich Coleman (American/New Orleans, 1919‑2018), "Lush Landscape with Water Lilies", oil on canvas, signed lower right, 18 in. x 24 in., framed.  $700/1000

Note: Noted artist and philanthropist Dorothy Coleman maintained a longstanding relationship with the New Orleans art community throughout her life.  First studying art with Will Henry Stevens at Newcomb College, Coleman returned to painting after raising a family with encouragement from Auseklis Ozols.  Additionally, the two artists founded the New Orleans Academy of Fine Arts, which still operates from its Magazine Street location today.  Whether admiring sunsets over the Mississippi River, the beaches of Hawaii, or the landscapes of Ireland, Coleman constantly noticed the beauty surrounding her and sought to capture it on canvas or paper.  The beautiful landscape presented here includes an interesting foreshortened composition that draws the viewer's eye across the pond and into the bushes and trees beyond.  The sunbeams reflected off the lily pads and the dappled surface of the water create a lovely balance of light and shadow.

Note: The sitter in the charming portrait offered here, a genteel southern lady, wears a beautifully rendered blue silk dress with a wide neckline, ruching on the bodice and sleeves, and lace at the neckline and cuffs.  The fashionable dress, paired with a classic double-part hairstyle and curls framing the face, indicates that this portrait was most likely painted in the late 1830s or early 1840s.  The sitter’s accessories – black lace gloves, a gold bracelet, and a pink rose – emphasize her femininity and highlight the unknown artist’s skill and attention to detail.

Note: The bold carvings, elaborate stag head crest, and overall form of the present lot relate closely to a Mitchell and Rammelsberg sideboard held in the collection of the Cincinnati Museum of Art. Originating in France and developed in the U.S. by cabinetmaker Alexander Roux, sideboards incorporating animal figures and themes of hunt and harvest became highly sought-after staples for lavish dining rooms during the mid-19th century. The Cincinnati firm of Mitchell and Rammelsberg brought this extravagant style to Mid-Western clients by the 1860s.

Note: Raymond Thomas received his degree from the prestigious School of the Art Institute of Chicago.  A man of many talents in addition to being an accomplished painter, he served as creative manager for Johnson Publishing Co. and Ebony Magazine, art teacher, award winning filmmaker and screen writer, board member of The South Side Community Arts Center of Chicago and is currently creative director of the Jazz Institute of Chicago. He also has a lifelong mission mentoring the youth of Chicago.  Thomas’ strongest artistic inspirations were the collage work of Romare Bearden and the Black Arts Movement of the 1960s and 1970s.  Both of these influences can be seen in his three-part exhibition “Son Of Man: A reVision of the Christ,” of which the painting offered here was a centerpiece.  Thomas’ intent with the series was to bring a modern interpretation to the story of the Christ by fusing Jazz-inspired spontaneity and structure.  In referring to the series as a whole, journalist Lynn Norment wrote of Thomas' painting as: “…works that dare to strip away dogma and challenge perceptions of the image and personage of Christ."  “The Conversion of Mary Magdalen” won both Best Painting and Best in Show at the Black Creativity Exhibition held at the Museum of Science and Industry in Chicago and was exhibited in several Chicago area galleries.  Thomas describes his approach to art as “an ongoing exploration for the truth and enlightenment, motivated by an unwavering devotion to craft and culture.”

The incised and stippled panels on this bookcase resemble panels on pieces within Pabst's Modern Gothic oeuvre related to the work of English designer Christopher Dresser. Pabst examples with similar carving include a bedroom suite in the Philadelphia Museum of Art and an armchair from a private collection illustrated in The Art that is Life by Wendy Kaplan.

                  Provenance: Webb Family, New Orleans and Minden, LA.  

Note: In the early hours of June 6, 1862, a naval battle ensued between five Union gunboats, the flagship Benton, and four rams against eight cottonclad Confederate rams.  The Confederate boats, known as the “River Defense Fleet,” were split into two formations, one to fight against the Union ships coming up the Mississippi River at the Gulf of Mexico opening under Admiral David Farragut, and one to protect the river from a Northern attack near Memphis.  The Union ships were under the command of Flag Officer Charles Henry Davis and Colonel Charles Ellet, Jr., while the Confederate fleet was led by James E. Montgomery, a riverboat captain with no military training.  The lack of coordination between military and non-military personnel on the Confederate side led to general chaos as the Union rams sank all but one of their ships in the foggy, early morning of June 6. This battle led to the surrender of Memphis to the Union and allowed Union naval forces to proceed farther down the Mississippi River toward Vicksburg, meeting there with Farragut’s forces from New Orleans.  The painting offered here depicts the horrors of a major naval battle of the Civil War, possibly this First Battle of Memphis, and includes a fiery explosion in the background with stranded soldiers among the wreckage of sunken ships in the foreground.  The center of the composition shows several of the remaining ships with Union Navy flags amidst the debris.

910.           Louisiana School, 1854., "Portrait of a Member of the Godchaux Family, Probably Michelette Lazard Godchaux (1790‑1878) Wearing Portrait Brooch", c. 1860, oil on canvas, faintly signed "Moses pinxt" and dated lower right, 36 in. x 29 in., framed. $800/1200

                  Provenance: Estate of Eve Godchaux Hirsch, New Orleans. 

Note: Paul Godchaux (possibly originally spelled Godchot) married Michelette Lazard in Metz, France in the early 1800s.  The couple and their children immigrated from France to the United States in the 1830s, and by 1841 the family owned land for sugar cultivation.  The descendants of the Godchaux family became prominent members of the New Orleans community including Leon Godchaux, who founded the famous department store Godchaux’s that existed on Canal Street from 1840 to 1986.

In this portrait, the sitter, likely the matriarch Michelette Lazard Godchaux, wears a brooch with a portrait, possibly that of her husband, who had passed away in 1850.  Also on display are her fine jewelry and lace bonnet, collar, and cuffs, in addition to the beautiful fresh flowers in her hair, making for a distinctive portrait of a prominent New Orleans citizen.

This painting was probably created by one of the Moses brothers, Bernard (1832-1899) or Gustave (1836-1915), both of whom were portrait painters and photographers. The Moses family arrived in New Orleans from Bavaria before 1850, with the patriarch, Samuel Moses, establishing a daguerreotype, painting, and photography studio.  In due course, his sons and grandsons joined the family business as well, continuing the tradition at their Canal Street location.

Note: Born in Michigan, Martin Arnold worked as an automation machinery designer for the automotive industry for thirty-seven years before leaving the business and going south to Mississippi to seek a degree in the arts in 2006. While his subjects are primarily figurative, Arnold’s engineering background makes itself known through his meticulously rendered works and his almost photorealistic attention to detail.  Arnold places his subjects within a sparse setting with little or no background, forcing the viewer to focus on the models, who often stare directly at the viewer. When speaking of his art, Arnold notes: “I offer viewers an opportunity to speculate on my subject’s mind-set and demeanor as they probe the commonality and simultaneous, utter uniqueness of each of my models.  As a figurative artist, my goal is to produce artwork that assumes the role of a psychological mirror, wherein viewers may recognize and examine aspects of their own psyche in its inescapable, unrelenting reflection."
