Florence Nupok Malewotkuk (B 1906 D 1971) running bear drawing. The drawing measures 13.5 by 9.5 inches, frame 21 x 17 inches. Born in the village of Gambell, on Saint Lawrence Island, Florence Nupok Melewotkuk became a painter and illustrator of daily-life scenes that reflected early 20th-century culture of the Siberian Yup'ik Eskimo. She favored a realistic style, somewhat naive, that earned her the title of "Grandma Moses of the Bering Sea." Promoted and marketed by people who believed in the quality of her work, she was inadvertently pioneering and unique in a culture where art was primarily a male pursuit. She began drawing at age eight and used any paper she could find including labels from canned goods. In 1926, she married Chauncy Malewotkuk and a year later began a series of drawings, about ninety in total, for Otto William Geist, who was conducting archaeological excavations on Saint Lawrence Island. This work included figure studies, fur clothing, and women's tattoo markings, and the entire collection is housed in the Archives of the Elmer E. Rasmuson Library at the University of Alaska, Fairbanks. Photos of these pieces are at the Smithsonian Institution in Washington DC.

Ruth Trobe hand forged bronze sculpture of a man and a woman. Born 1913 D 2009. The daughter of Samuel and Rose Weiner, Russian-Jewish immigrants,she was born In 1913 in the tiny Jewish community of Beaver Falls PA. In 1936, she married Harold Trobe, also of Beaver Falls. The Weiner and Trobe families knew each other well, although the Weiners were secular socialists and Harold Trobe's father was the town rabbi. In 1947, Ruth and Harold and their two sons, aged 4 and 2, moved to Vienna, Austria where Harold was in charge of displaced persons camps that housed the survivors of the Holocaust. Ruth opened a sculpture studio and soon began to exhibit her work. Harold's social service work on behalf of worldwide Jewry later took the family to Geneva, Rome, Paris, Rio de Janeiro, and Jerusalem, over a 33-year period of living abroad. With access to a glittering international society, Ruth hosted artists, musicians, composers, writers, journalists, Fulbright scholars, and ambassadors. For these peripatetic expatriates, who gathered in her salon, she made critical personal connections and found the best buys. She claimed that she could often identify the undercover CIA agents among them and sometimes even pry out their secrets. Her sculptures, mostly semi-abstract figures of men and women, were displayed in galleries around the world. Among the owners of her work were Golda Meir, past prime minister of Israel, and Leon Fleisher, the noted pianist. This information was obtained from her obituary at obits.mlive.com The sculpture measures 10.5 inches high by 9.5 inches wide.The marble base measures 8 x 3.5 inches by .75 inches. Very few sculptors have the skill to forge a piece by hand to this degree of detail. Shipping extra. Connecticut residents and buyers picking up in Connecticut add 6.35% state sales tax.

Hilton Leech abstract modern art expressionist movement landscape oil painting on artist board. The contrast between the murky greens and the brilliant orange red creates a subtle tension and moodiness. Measures 16.5 inches high x 12.5 inches wide framed, unframed 14 inches high by 10 inches wide. C1950 to 1960. Hilton Leech was a master watercolorist and painter. He was inventive and experimented with a variety of mediums and combined them with watercolor to advance the medium of watercolor beyond the purist aesthetic, mixing the rich quality of casein glazed with colored inks thus creating a range of textures and redefining opaqueness and transparency with a combination of stencils, watercolor and liquid plastics. Born in Bridgeport, Connecticut in 1906 and died in 1969. Hilton Leech was 20 before he made up his mind to become an artist. He knew he liked to draw and paint and had won a few local contests. His first love was nature and combined with his artistic aptitudes he decided to enroll in the Grand Central Art School and later studied lithography at the Art Students League.His association with his instructors Arshile Gorky and George Pearce Ennis at the Grand Central Art School moved his career forward as Mr. Ennis hired him as his assistant. In 1931, they came to Sarasota to teach at the new Ringling Art School.

Kintzler was and commissioned to make a portrait in bronze in honor of the 50th anniversary of Igor Sikorsky designing the first helicopter. In doing so David Kintzler made this bronze as an additional tribute to the event which took place in 1989. He has kept it all these years. This is the only one! there are no others. We have provided photographs showing the sculptor with the bronze portrait commissioned and now at the corporate headquarters.Measures in the book "Igor Sikorsky" His Three Careers in Aviation by Frank J. Delear with forward by General James H Doolittle page 250. 18 inches tall,8 inches deep and 14 inches outside the protruding blades of the helicopter.David Kintzler, sculptor, born 1939 in Cleveland, Ohio. Education: B.F.A. Sculpture, Kent State University. M.A. Painting, Kent State University. M.F.A. Sculpture, Syracuse University. Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture, Skowhegan, ME. Apprentice Stone Carver, Johnston Monument Works, Newburgh, NY. Taught sculpture at Syracuse University, Kansas City Art Institute, Housatonic Community College, Bpt. CT (Professor Emeritus). Commissions: Igor Sikorsky Life size Bronze Portrait, in Sikorsky Plant's Main Lobby. Benny Goodman, Eubie Blake, Dizzy Gillespi. Works in numerous private collections.Statement by David Kintzler A note from the Sculptor : As the 50th Anniversary of Igor Sikorsky’s first flight of the VS-300 helicopter in 1939 approached, my thoughts returned to the first of several meetings with Igor Sikorsky. I recall him telling me that I was the only sculptor who had ever done his portrait from life. He gave me several signed copies of books he had written, which revealed his being both a mystic and a realist as well as an inventor and businessman. Beyond that, he was a humanist, loved and greatly admired by his extended family of employees at the main plant located in Stratford, Connecticut. My idea was to create a sculpture that would go beyond the traditional portrait, creating a collage of related images. I began with a low relief image of the VS-300, a precarious open frame airship, piloted en plein aire by the designer himself wearing his ever-present fedora and plenty of faith. Located beneath the relief of the helicopter reads the following commemorative information: “First flight of the VS-300 helicopter, designed and piloted by Igor Sikorsky--September 14, 1939.” Following the commemorative information is a quote that I selected from the writings of Igor Sikorsky: “The work of the individual still remains the spark that moves mankind ahead.” Positioned in front of the relief is a full figure of Igor Sikorsky. I sought to capture his gentle formality with a balanced, symmetrical stance. All those fortunate to have met Igor Sikorsky will recognize his courtly demeanor as he glances upward toward the sky. This sculpture was cast at the Cavalier Foundry in Bridgeport, Connecticut, in 1989. The sculpture is signed, copyright 1989. It is the only casting produced and the molds have been destroyed.
