Giovanni Paolo Panini, School of, Italian, 1691-1765. Giovanni Paolo Panini or Pannini (17 June 1691 – 21 October 1765) was a painter and architect, who worked in Rome and is mainly known as one of the vedutisti ("view painters"). As a painter, Panini is best known for his vistas of Rome, in which he took a particular interest in the city's antiquities. Among his most famous works are his view of the interior of the Pantheon (on behalf of Francesco Algarotti), and his vedute—paintings of picture galleries containing views of Rome. Most of his works, specially those of ruins, have a fanciful and unreal embellishment characteristic of capriccio themes. In this they resemble the capricci of Marco Ricci. Panini also painted portraits, including one of Pope Benedict XIV. As a young man, Panini for SAJ trained in his native town of Piacenza, under Giuseppe Natali and Andrea Galluzzi, and later the stage designer Francesco Galli-Bibiena. In 1711, he moved to Rome, where he studied drawing with Benedetto Luti. In Rome Panini became famous as a decorator of palaces, including the Villa Patrizi (1719–1725), the Palazzo de Carolis (1720), and the Seminario Romano (1721–1722). In 1719, Panini was admitted to the Congregazione dei Virtuosi al Pantheon. He taught in Rome at the Accademia di San Luca and the Académie de France, where he influenced Jean-Honoré Fragonard. In 1754, he served as the principal of the Accademia di San Luca. Panini died in Rome on 21 October 1765.Panini's studio included Hubert Robert and his son Francesco Panini. His style influenced other vedutisti, such as his pupil Antonio Joli, as well as Canaletto and Bernardo Bellotto, who sought to meet the need of visitors for painted "postcards" depicting the Italian environs.Some British landscape painters, such as Marlow, Skelton and Wright of Derby, also imitated his capricci. His paintings sell for up to 1.2Million Euro.

Claude Le Lorrain Gelee, French, 1600-1682. This painting is an exquisite example of Lorrain genius. It is oil on canvas 31" by 24" (79cm by 61cm), signed lower right. Provenance: It is likely painted in Rome, and exhibited throughout Europe. Documented to be from the collection of Robert Batke, circa 1888 in Germany. Acquisition by Batke, in Berlin, numerous generations back. Passed on to his son Richard Batke, it was inherited by Richards widow, the present Cecilia M Freed, with other Batke holdings. Claude Gellee, who was called Lorrain after his native province of Lorraine, was born in 1600 at Chamagne, France, near Nancy. He settled in Rome perhaps as early as 1613. He spent nearly all his adult life there. When a young man, he worked in the household of Agostino Tassi, the landscape and marine painter, in some menial function, either as a pastry cook or a general factotum. We know that he was in Rome at the time and continued to live there, working with Poussin and Salvator Rosa. His early work was chiefly in fresco, of which little remains, but his fame is based on landscape canvases, often with biblical or mythological subjects. Patronized principally by the Italian nobility, he also enjoyed an international reputation. Together with Poussin he is responsible for the classical revival in French landscape painting of the seventeenth century. Among the many later painters influenced by his work was Turner. He died in 1682.

John Frederick Kensett, 1816-1872, Conn, Long Island, NY. This equisite painting is a fine example of an early Kensett painting. It is oil on canvas, signed indistinctly lower right and signed verso, A Scene from Nature by Kensett, New York, 1844. It is 12 1/8" by 10" unframed. It comes after Kensett was influenced by the French Barbizon School of painting. Son of an English immigrant engraver, John Kensett lacked enthusiasm for that medium and became one of the most accomplished painters of the second generation of Hudson River School painters. His reputation is for Luminism, careful depiction of light, weather, and atmosphere as they affect color and texture of natural forms. He was particularly influenced by the painting of Asher Durand in that he focused on realism and detail rather than the highly dramatic views associated with Thomas Cole. Going to the western United States in the mid 1850s and the 1860s, he was the first of the Hudson River School painters to explore and paint the West. Kensett was born and raised in Cheshire, Connecticut, and learned his engraving from his father, Thomas Kensett with whom he worked in New Haven, Connecticut until 1829. He continued working until 1840 as an engraver of labels, banknotes and maps and was employed part of that time by the American Bank Note Company in New York City. There he met Thomas Rossiter, John Casilear, and other artists who urged him to pursue painting. In 1840, he and Rossiter, Asher Durand, and Casilear went to Europe where Kensett stayed for seven years and supported himself by doing engraving but became accomplished in landscape painting. Having sent canvases of Italian landscapes back to New York, he had a reputation for skillful painting that preceded him. When he returned to New York City in 1847, he was an "instant success" and very sought after by collectors. Two of his Italian landscapes had already been purchased by the American Art Union. By 1849, he was a full member of the National Academy of Design and was generally popular among his peers. His studio was a gathering place with travelers stopping by to see his canvases and to identify "precise locations in the Catskills or Newport or New England in the oil sketches and drawings that covered his walls." (Zellman 170). For the women, he was a popular bachelor, "romantic looking with high forehead and sensitive expression." (Samuels 262) He was also sought after by many organizations. Among his activities were serving on the committee to oversee the decoration of the United States Capitol in Washington DC, and becoming one of the founders of the Metropolitan Museum in New York. An inveterate traveler, Kensett spent summers on painting excursions away from New York City. One of these trips was a special painting excursion with fifteen other artists sponsored by the B & O Railroad from Baltimore, Maryland to Wheeling, West Virginia. Unlike many of the Hudson River painters, Kensett painted coastal views, a subject he began pursuing in the 1850s. It was a subject that lent itself to his skill in depicting heightened light, color and reflection. Beginning 1854, he traveled in the West, first going up the Mississippi River and then the Missouri River in 1857, to Colorado with Worthington Whittredge in 1866, and in 1870 back to Colorado with Whittredge and Sanford Gifford. He died two years later attempting to rescue the drowning wife of fellow artist Vincent Colyer.

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.
