Valentine Sandberg watercolor Illustration c1900. Sandberg was Swedish born in 1881, He is listed as one of the important artists in the Golden Age of Illustration. Here is a listing taken from AmericanArchives.com New York newspaper art departments until he his first assignment, a plumb one, painting a cover for The Munsey. With further Munsey work, he did covers for Success, Harper's Weekly, Life, Sunday Magazine, Home Life, Modern Priscilla, Judge, and People's Popular Monthly. Ad assignments included Ferry's Seeds, Swift's, Falstaff, and Vitralite. He was so popular, he was reprinted in posters and calendars. When Sandberg, like others, was asked to mimic the fade-away style of Coles Phillips, he fulfilled his assignment brilliantly and this became a curse with time. Other artists (Leyendecker, Stanlaws) did fade-aways, but Sandberg alone was saddled with "copying." Sandberg was capable of far more than his excellent fade-away work and deserves a re-evaluation.There was an article about Sandberg winning a prize for a patriotic U. S. art slogan that appeared in Time magazine July 11, 1932 under "Clarion Call". This piece is in original estate condition. The frame measures 20 inches by 20 inches, the image itself measures 16 x 16 inches. Signed lower left. Shipping extra.

David Kintzler Contemporary marble Sculpture. "Sculptor David Kintzler" This marble sculpture crafted by David Kintzler, 1981, measures 6 inches high overall, 7 inches deep and 7 inches wide. 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, Sculptor "I am of the school of stone carvers who prefers to start with a natural form like a boulder or a cut block which has been split or otherwise altered. The object now represents the beginning of a conversation. I work directly on the stone and only occasionally draw on its surface or sketch on paper. Besides the over all shape, I consider the grain and markings which when combined with my personal imagery, form an organic, bio-morphic image. These are not literal images rather they are meant to be multiple, elusive and mysterious, allowing the viewer to participate fully. The choice of titles is enigmatic and serves primarily as an identification of the piece. Hopefully the sculpture will be enjoyed in natural light allowing for infinite subtle changes to occur throughout the day". Shipping extra.

Henry Rankin Poore The Wood Gatherers landscape oil painting c1900. Frame measures 29 x 39 inches. The painting 20 x 30 inches. Bio from AskArt.com Born in Newark, New Jersey, Henry Rankin Poore became a painter of rural landscape subjects, fox hunting, portraits, and animals. He has been described as a "spirited and versatile artist, able to paint on diverse themes and noted for his sporting pictures as well as genre and landscape paintings." (Zellman 544) He was raised in California and planned to study for the ministry. However, the art exhibition section of the 1874 Centennial Exposition in Philadelphia re-directed his goals. In the early 1880s, he traveled to New Mexico and Colorado, and was the first American artist to have a painting published with a reference to the Taos Pueblo. This depiction was a burro train leaving the Pueblo and is recorded as being done in 1882. His mining illustrations of Colorado from that same trip were published in Harper's Weekly. In 1888, he is listed as having been in Taos again. To insure his art training, he studied at the National Academy of Design in New York for a year and then with Peter Moran at the Pennsylvania School of Fine Arts. He became a popular painter during this time of dogs, hunting and western mining, and made enough money from his art sales to study at the University of Pennsylvania, graduating in 1883. That year until 1885, he studied in Paris with William Bouguereau at the Academie Julian and was also in Paris again in 1892 following a foxhunting and sketching trip to England. In 1890, he became a special agent for the United States Census Bureau to illustrate the "Report on the Condition of Fifteen Pueblos of New Mexico in 1890." Collaborating with him were artists Peter Moran, Julian Scott, Gilbert Gaul and Walter Shirlaw. Henry Rankin Poore was a long-time active artist in Philadelphia, and from 1890, taught at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts. During this period, he turned his painting subjects to more ordinary genre---humble persons going about everyday life. This work has been described as being similary to that of the Barbizon painter Jean Millet (1814-1875). Poore also became part of the Art Colony at Old Lyme, Connecticut where, to get his rural landscape subjects, he constructed a portable studio drawn by oxen. He then created pictures of the oxen pulling farm laborers on hay carts. He lived at the end of his life in Orange, New Jersey where he died in 1940. Shipping extra.

Some time in the mid 1930s, Charles Hopkinson, an old professor, proposed that Calapai work only part-time and focus on his art work. Hopkinson offered to compensate him for the money he did not earn as a result. Calapai henceforth directed his attention entirely to printmaking. Experimenting with wood and metal engraving techniques, he made prints of rural and urban landscapes.He founded and chaired the Graphic Arts Department of the Albright Art School in Buffalo, NY (1949 - 1955), taught at the New School for Social Research (1955 - 1962), established the Intaglio Workshop for Advanced Printmaking in New York, and taught at various other universities and colleges.
