"Price in Request" 

John James Audubon, 1785-1851, Haiti, New York. Original Artist's Proof Engraving,Hand colored by Audubon himself. It is 36"h by 26"w. It has excellent provenance direct from the artist in 1800's and through direct descent to present owner. John James Audubon's entire career was devoted to preserving images of rapidly declining species of birds and wild animals in watercolor and oil. Audubon was born in Santa Domingo (now Haiti) to a French naval officer and his Creole mistress. He was raised in France during the French Revolution. In 1803, Audubon fled with his father to the United States because Napoleon was seeking soldiers for his army. Although he studied with Jacques-Louis David (France) and John Stein in Natchez, Mississippi, Audubon was largely self-taught as an artist and a scientist. Audubon soon became enthralled with every bird in North America, and he traveled extensively up and down the Ohio and Mississippi River basins and as far south as the Florida Keys to study birds and to produce watercolors in preparation for The Birds of America. From 1819-1839, the ornithologist Audubon catalogued as many species as he could and his notes and paintings are represented in the now-famous John James Audubon: The Watercolors for the Birds of America.The artist, naturalist, explorer, publisher was also an entrepreneur, writer and an active, vocal environmentalist. He realistically and enthusiastically painted wildlife (especially birds) in flying or grounded positions with detailed accuracy and preserved in paint many now-extinct birds for future generations to study and observe. After 1826, Audubon went to Great Britain to raise subscription money and find engravers and publishers for Birds of America, published eventually from 1828-1838 with the help of Scottish engraver William Home Lizars (the early part of the series) and English engraver-publisher Robert Havell, Jr. From 1831-1832, Audubon returned to Florida to paint more birds. From 1845-1848, the series Viviparous Quadrupeds of North America was published and made the reputation of this naturalist.

SOLD 

Hal Robinson (1875-1933), NY and Connecticut. This lovely impressionist painting is oil on canvas, 7" by 9" and signed Hal Robinson lower right. Condition is excellent. Provenance: Private Midwestern Collection, Leslie Hindman Auction, Private Midwest Collection, Artist's Estate. Robinson painted at Old Lyme and exhibited After a Spring Rain, After the October Storm, The Last Glow, Saw Mill River and The Ice-Bound Hudson between 1909 and 1911 at the National Academy of Design. At the Corcoran Gallery he showed After a Spring Rain in 1910. In the following year he exhibited A Gray Day in November and The Ice Pond after a Thaw at the Carnegie International. Basically a naturalistic landscape painter, Robinson shows a degree of assimilation to impressionism in his use of violet hues and in the expressive application of impasto pigment. He obviously worked from a fully loaded brush that results in a textural impasto that is a delight in itself, yet there is no systematic use of broken color, as Childe Hassam practiced. Hassam’s arrival at Old Lyme in 1903, along with that of Willard Metcalf, changed the orientation of the artists’ colony almost completely from tonalism to impressionism. Robinson was obviously responding to those innovations. When Robinson died in 1933, the Lyme Art Association was undergoing financial problems. Florence Griswold would live until 1937, guiding visitors through her colonial house. But largely the Griswold Mansion had become a nostalgic curiosity. On the other hand, Old Lyme remained the choice of many landscape painters, and into the early 1960s, Will Howe Foote (1874-1965), William Chadwick (1879-1962), Guy Wiggins (1883-1962), and Harry Hoffman (1874-1966) were still exhibiting there.

This heartrending portrait of Indian Papoose in cradle crying his or her heart out is typical of this painter of Native American children and babies. It is oil on fine silk laid on board, 14" by 14" and signed G Hudson lower left circa 1895-1905. It is in overall good condition with minor frame rubbiing on bottom left. This heartrending portrait of Indian Papoose in cradle crying his or her heart out is typical of this painter of Native American children and babies. Provenance: Private Midwestern Collection, Leslie Hindman Auction, Private Midwestern Collection by direct descent, Purchased from Artist.Grace Carpenter showed artistic promise at an early age. After attending public schools in Ukiah and San Francisco, at age 14 she enrolled at the local School of Design. For five school terms she studied there with Virgil Williams, Raymond Yelland, Domenico Tojetti, and Oscar Kunath. After her marriage to Dr. John Hudson in 1890, she returned to Ukiah. Their home at 431 South Main (now a museum) was marked with a totem pole in front and was known as "The Sun House." The Pomo Indians who lived in the area accepted Grace as one of them and called her "Painter Lady." After her painting of Little Mendocino (a crying Pomo baby) caused a sensation at the Chicago World's Fair in 1893, she then specialized in painting the Pomos. Most of her subjects were of the children and babies of the tribe, the older Pomos being superstitious about having their images recorded. Her oils chronicled the Pomo culture and are of great historical value. In addition to the Pomos she spent several months painting the native children of Hawaii in 1901 and a commission took her to Oklahoma to paint the Pawnees in 1904. Mrs. Hudson died at her Ukiah home on March 23, 1937 having left a great legacy to our national art. The monument marking her grave in Ukiah Cemetery is of her own design, a basalt shaft capped with a mourning phoenix. Exh: Calif.

"$50,000." 

Jules Dupre, French,1811-1889,Born in Nantes. His father was an artist who decorated porcelain and held the position of director at porcelain manufactories. In 1822, Dupré worked for his father as an apprentice porcelain decorator. His early training as an artist was in the industrial arts, as it was for many of his contemporaries. While working with his father, he also executed drawings and paintings from nature.Dupré was influenced by his close association with DeMarne and Bertin and in 1829 he went to Paris where he further developed as an artist through his friendship with Cabat. Associations with the artists Decamps, Jeanron, and Huet were also formed at this time.Traveling to Great Britain in 1831, Dupré made a study of the paintings by English landscape artists. He also sketched and returned to France with a portfolio of imagery. His travels did not stop there though and the French provinces also provided great inspiration for the young artist. Early success came when he began exhibiting in the 1830’s and especially in 1833 when four of his works were accepted into the Salon. Official recognition came in 1835 when he exhibited four landscapes at the Salon and received a third-class medal. He also included works in regional exhibitions, which were becoming increasingly important as they supported and promoted local painters and upcoming Parisian artists. It was at this time that Dupré became a key figure in the Barbizon group. He developed close ties with other Barbizon painters and began to promote relations with independent art dealers. When Dupré showed seven paintings at the 1839 Salon, it was to be his last exhibition, until 1852, and a turning point in his career. This was due to the insensitivity of the jury and the lack of understanding of many of his colleagues. Together with Cabat, Huet, Isabey, Corot, and Rousseau, Dupré organized a petition to change the jury system.After the 1848 Revolution Dupré became a member the commission created to reorganize the Salon. In 1849, he received the Legion d’honneur and continued to achieve financial success. At this time he reentered the Salon as an exhibitor. In 1867 he exhibited at the Exposition Centennale.Jules Dupré had fully developed as an artist by the 1870’s and was considered one of the leading landscapists of his time. He continued to paint until his death in 1889.Museums:Baltimore, Walters Art Museum; Boston, Museum of Fine Arts, McMullen Museum of Art; Chicago, DePaul University Museum; Cincinnati, Art Museum; Cleveland, Museum of Art; London, National Gallery, Wallace Collection; Minneapolis, Institute of Art; New York, Frick Collection, Metropolitan Museum of Art; Paris, Louvre, Mobilier National, Musée d’Orsay; Pasadena, CA, Norton Simon Museum; Rennes, Musée des Beaux-Arts; Saint Petersburg, Hermitage; San Francisco, Fine Arts Museums; Toronto, Art Gallery of Ontario; Vic-sur-Seille, Musée Départemental Georges de la Tour; Washington D.C., National Gallery of Art; West Palm Beach, FL, Norton Museum of Art;

Adolphe Monticelli, French, 1824-1886. This lovely oil on panel is 14 6/8"h by 11 3/8"w in a lovely 19th C Frame (22 1/4"h by 18"w). It is signed and in good condition. A pupil of Paul Delaroche, the master who was to have the greatest influence over the young Monticelli was N. V. Diaz de la Peña, whom he met when he returned to Paris from 1855 to 1856. Monticelli’s visits to Paris exposed him to the Rococo Revival, which was being popularized by artists including Diaz, and he started producing scenes of courtly figures in garden settings à la Watteau. This became a favorite subject, and from the 1860s until the end of his career Monticelli treated numerous variations on the theme. His final sixteen years were his most productive. The vibrant colors and thick, impastic surfaces of his late works struck a responsive chord in the young Vincent Van Gogh, who collected Monticelli’s paintings and expressed his indebtedness to the older artist’s work.Museums:Atlanta, High Museum of Art; Caen, Musée des Beaux-Arts; Compiègne, musée national du château; Dijon, Musée national Magnin; London, National Gallery; Lyon, Musée des Beaux-Arts; Marseille, Musée Cantini, Musée des Beaux-Arts; New York, Metropolitan Museum of Art; Paris, Musée du Louvre, Musée d’Orsay, Musée national Jean Jacques Henner; Péronne, Musée Alfred Danicourt; Rouen, Musée des Beaux-Arts; Strasbourg, Musée d’art moderne et contemporain;
