George Bellows, Ohio, NYCity, 1882-1925. "Study for Portrait of My Mother, Ink and wash on paper, 24.25h x 18.5w inches. Signed lower right, G. B. and Geo Bellows. Provenance Private Southern Collection, Eldred's Auction, H.V. Allison & Co., NY. Label on reverse from H. V. Allison & Co., NY. There are two oil on canvas similar versions of Portrait of My Mother, 1922 in a book titled: The Paintings of George Bellows, by Alfred A. Knopf, NY. 1929, pages 109 and 113. Born in Columbus, Ohio, George Bellows was a major American artist of the early 20th century, known for his paintings of boxing match figures and for his lithographs, numbering nearly two hundred, of his paintings. He became an instructor in New York at the Art Students League and at the Art Institute of Chicago. He graduated from Ohio State University in 1903 and then attended the New York School of Art where he studied with Robert Henri, Kenneth Hayes Miller, and Hardesty Gilmore Maratta. Henri inspired him to treat urban subjects in a realist, painterly manner, and between 1906 and 1913, he produced a number of scenes from New York life that defined his fine arts career. In 1908, he won a prize at the annual show at the National Academy of Design, the first of many honors during his life. Bellows also worked as a newspaper and magazine illustrator and won early acclaim for those activities. He was elected to the National Academy of Design, but he was part of the group that rebelled against them in 1919 with the Exhibition of Independent Artists and the 1913 Armory Show. In 1920, he settled in Woodstock, New York where he purchased property next to his good friend Eugene Speicher and lived during the summers until his early death from a ruptured appendix in 1925.

Maurice Utrillo, French, 1883-1955.Oil on cardstock, 6"h by 4.45"w signed LL, in good condition. Petit VaseBlanc de Fleures. Born in Paris with the name of Maurice Valadon, Maurice Utrillo specialized in painting city scenes, especially of his beloved Paris. He was the son of teenage model, Marie-Clementine Valade, who painted under the name of Suzanne Valadon, and perhaps an amateur painter name Boissy. Unsure of the father, Valadon reportedly took him around among some of her male acquaintances including Renoir, all whom denied parentage, and so she named him after Miguel Utrillo, who was sympathetic but likely not the father. Among the artists for whom Valadon posed were Berthe Morisot, Toulouse Lautrec, and Pierre-Auguste Renoir. By the age of 21, Utrillo was having the mental problems that would reoccur throughout his life. To divert him, his mother encouraged him to paint, so he made pictures of what he saw around him in his neighborhood of Montmartre. His landscapes were unique, some said bizarre, and people bought them. They became popular and influential in that they encouraged other artists to depict their own environs realistically instead of following the prevailing trends towards abstraction. Many of his Parisian scenes, painted 'en-plein air', have appeared on postcards. In the 1920s, when he was in his 40s, he had an international reputation, and in 1929, he received the Legion of Honor from the French government. In 1935, when he was 52, he married a woman named Lucie Valore, and the couple settled in Le Vesinet, near Paris. He lived into his seventies, although he had many bouts with alcoholism. He died November 5, 1955 and is buried in Montmartre in the Cimetere Saint-Vincent.

His paintings sell for up to $2,709,303 and works on paper sell for up to $150,000. This French painter and writer born Albert Leon Gleizes was raised in Paris and was the son of a fabric designer who ran a large industrial design workshop. After finishing secondary school, he worked with his father and then while serving in the army from 1902 to 1905 he began to paint seriously. Initially influenced by the Impressionists, at twenty-one his work La Seine a Asnieres was exhibited at the Societe Nationale des Beaux-Arts in 1902. With several friends in 1906 he founded the Abbaye de Creteil outside Paris. This commune of artists and writers scorned bourgeois society and sought to create nonallegorical, epic art based on modern themes. The commune closed in 1908 due to financial restraints and in 1909 he came under the influence of Fernand Leger, Robert Delauney, Jean Metzinger and later to Henri Faucconnier who led Gleizes to his cubist style. In 1910 he exhibited at the Salon des Independents, Paris and the Jack of Diamonds in Moscow.In 1914 Gleizes re-entered the military service. His paintings had become abstract by 1915. Galeries Daimau, Barcelona held his first one man show in 1916. Then beginning 1918 while in America, Gleizes developed an interest in spiritual values and as a result the theme of religious thought entered many of his subsequent writings. He founded Moly-Sabata, another untopian community of artists and craftsmen in Sablons. Later in his career he was commissioned for murals for the Paris Worlds Fair of 1937. In 1947, a major Gleizes retrospective occurred in Lyons at the Chapelle du Lycee Ampere. From 1949 to 1950 Gleizes painted illustrations for Pascal’s Pensees and in 1952 he painted a fresco, Eucharist, for the chapel Les Fontaines at Chantilly. Gleizes died in Avignon on June 23, 1953.

Italian artist Duilio Barnabé (1914-1961). Oil on canvas in beautiful silver leafed frame. 21cm h by 28cm w. (8.6" by 11.2"). Provenance: Private Collection, Leslie Hindman Auction, Private Collection. Barnabe reduced all subject matter in his paintings to their purist form and removed all clues to place and time through the use of monochromatic backgrounds. I believe in understated simplicity in design and art, so it goes without saying that I am a fan of Barnabé's work. Sadly, Duilio took his life while in his prime. On October 7, 1960, the night of his 46th birthday, he drove his car off the side of a mountain in the French Alps; miraculously, he escaped without injury. At the time, many questioned if it was just an accident. That question was answered when exactly one year to the day, at the same time of night and on the very same corner, he drove his car off the road once again, killing himself.

Abraham Bloemaert, Dutch, 1564-1651. This exquisite drawing in ink, wash and chaulk is a fine example of Bloemaert's talent. It is 13.2 cm h by 9.5 cm w.Provenance: Private Collection, Leslie Hindman Auction, Private Collection, Fine English Collection ( paper verso ). Condition is good and it has an old label from Folio fine Art LTD in London. The son of an architect, Abraham Bloemaert, known for painting, engraving and teaching, was born in Gorinchem, Holland in 1564. At age nine, he moved with his family to Utrecht where he became a pupil of Gerrit Splinter and Joos de Beer. Subsequently he studied in Paris for three years, and then returned to Holland to study with Hieronymus Francken. He was one of the "Haarlem Mannerists" from about 1585, but in the new century altered his style to fit new Baroque trends. He mostly painted history subjects and some landscapes. From 1591 to 1595, he was in Amsterdam, and then settled in Utrecht where he served as Dean of the Guild of Saint Luke, the city guild for painters and named for Saint Luke, the patron saint of artists. Of his artistic talents, it was written: "He excelled more as a colourist than as a draughtsman, was extremely productive, and painted and etched historical and allegorical pictures, landscapes, still-life, animal pictures and flower pieces." His works are in all the major museums.
