Rifka Angel, (Russian/American; 1899 - 1986), Cats, Oil and encaustic on board., 15

Lot 7: Rifka Angel, (Russian/American; 1899 - 1986), Cats, Oil and encaustic on board., 15" x 16 1/2"

Estimated Price: Log in or create account to view price data

Description: Rifka Angel (Russian/American; 1899 - 1986) Cats Oil and encaustic on board. c. 1945. Signed and dated LR. Born in Russia, Rifka Angel was schooled at home as a youngster by Jewish parents. To escape religious persecution her father fled to New York City, and she joined him in 1914. A sister and brother refused to come and later perished in the Holocaust. Her father had art talent, and sketching in his spare time, encouraged her to do the same. She also said later that "her desire to create art was born out of the turmoil of her early life and her need to find peace of mind." However, she was 25 years old before she took up art with any seriousness. Enrolling at the Art Students League of New York, she studied with Boardman Robinson and was especially inspired by other artists she met there, especially John Sloan, Ernest Fiene, Emil Ganso and Alfred Maurer. Ganso was so impressed by her painting that he recommended her to Erhard Weyhe, who selected several of her gouaches for his Weyhe Gallery. Meanwhile, Robinson advised her to discontinue Art Students League classes and focus on her own spontaneity. In 1927, Angel returned to Russia for a two-year visit with a sister, and she studied for nine months with David Sternberg and others at the Moscow Academy of Art. During that period she was much influenced by the styles of Matisse and Cezanne. On her return home, she spent time in Paris, visiting museums and sketching. She married Milton Douthat, a naval architect with whom in 1930, she had a daughter, Blossom Margaret. The family settled in Chicago, and Rifka Angel did many modernist style genre, self portrait and figure paintings there, especially using her daughter as a model. She was also a part of the Illinois Federal Art Project in the Easel Division. In 1930, the Knoedler Gallery of New York held a one-woman show for Angel, and this exhibition included works from Russia and Paris. The next year, Knoedler held a second exhibition, which had many paintings of the daughter Blossom. In the mid 1930s, Angel and her family moved to New York City where she continued her career, focusing on genre, figure and floral still lifes in oil, watercolor and mixed media. 15" x 16 1/2"

Louise Woodroofe, (American; 1892-1996), Abstract Composition, Oilstick on paper., 11 7/8

Lot 11: Louise Woodroofe, (American; 1892-1996), Abstract Composition, Oilstick on paper., 11 7/8" x 9"

Estimated Price: Log in or create account to view price data

Description: Louise Woodroofe (American; 1892-1996) Abstract Composition Oilstick on paper. c. 1950. Fully signed verso. Louise Woodroofe's palette is vibrant, powerful, bold and uniquely artistic. Her brushwork is sure, immediate and precise and her individualistic artistic technique is uniquely hers. Influenced by the French Impressionist and Fauvist masters, Woodroofe also was a student of American architecture and had a degree in Painting from Syracuse University (1919). The artist was born in Champaign, Illinois, January 28, 1892. She yearned to be an artist from childhood and drew realistically in her early years. She studied and exhibited at the University of Illinois and Syracuse University in the teens and developed a fine impressionistic style but her extraordinarily bold Fauvist techniques took hold after she met and studied with the innovative Huge Breckenridge at the Breckenridge School of Art in East Gloucester, Massachusetts. Breckenridge was highly stimulated by the Parisian Pointillists and Impressionists but it was the dramatically placed vibrant colors of the "wild beasts" (the Fauvists) that changed the palette of Breckenridge and he taught the Fauve movement's use of brilliant pigments laid down in broken color to Woodroofe and other students in East Gloucester and at the PAFA. Woodroofe adhered to the American Fauvist movement as taught by Breckenridge, giving special attention to the scientific analysis of color as it applied to her needs and any given composition. Woodroofe was a confident painter who studied buildings and architecture for years, thus many of her canvases have houses and buildings in them. Her brushwork was laid down with vigor and speed. She painted in the picturesque fishing village of East Gloucester, where she painted in nature alongside Jane Peterson and Eleanor Parke Custis during the 1920s and 1930s. She also painted in Los Angeles, San Diego, San Francisco (CA) and in Milwaukee (WS) before settling in the Chicago (ca. 1927). Woodroofe exhibited at the 32nd Annual Exhibition of American Art at the Cincinnati Art Museum (1925), was given one-woman exhibitions at the Findley Gallery (Chicago) and by 1928 she was an Assistant Professor of Architecture at the University of Illinois (1928), becoming a full Professor of Art in 1948. She won numerous awards for painting excellence from 1930-1965 and was voted the "Most Supportive University Faculty Member" at the University of Illinois (1978). She was a member of the North Shore Arts Association (1931-1937), the National Association of Women Painters and the American Watercolor Society. Her paintings were shown at the National Arts Club and the National Academy of Design. She also exhibited at the North Shore AA, Butler Institute of American Art, PAFA and galleries in Chicago and London, England. After painting for over a decade in Gloucester, she traveled with the Ringling Brothers circus so that she could paint clowns and circus acts (1940s) and she was given free passes to the Ringling circus by John & Henry Ringling North throughout the 1960s. At the end of the 1940s the Crane Gallery of London, England gave Woodroofe a one-woman exhibition of her circus paintings and as late as 1955 she won an award for a circus subject at the National Academy. After 1940, when she was not teaching summer painting classes in Syracuse, she traveled throughout the U.S. painting villages and coastal towns. Never satisfied with her artistic output, Woodroofe continuously experimented with techniques and by the end of her life she was an Abstract Modernist. Well known throughout the U.S. and especially the Chicago area, The American Institute of Architecture gives deserving students The Louise Woodroofe Prize each year for artistic and academic achievement. 11 7/8" x 9"

She had studied art at the Watkins Institute in Nashville, Tennessee, the Art Institute of Chicago and the Ropp School of Art. She described her paintings as "American Naive" and depicted numerous genre neighborhood scenes of people of the city's Near North Side. Her style and subject matter, which contrasted with social realistic views of industry and frustrated city dwellers among skyscrapers, placed her among the prevalent American Scene painters of the 1920s and 1930s. Fry's goal was to paint works that made people feel good and uplifted. During World War II, from 1942 to 1946, she taught art classes at the Great Lakes Naval Station, and also did paintings of students participating in those sessions. Exhibition venues included the Chicago Society of Artists and the Art Institute of Chicago. Her watercolors appeared in the International Water Color Exhibition at the Art Institute of Chicago in 1934 and also in an exhibition entitled, "Room of Chicago Art: watercolors by Rowena Fry and Ethel Spears in 1944. Her work is in the collection of the Illinois State Museum and Abbott Laboratories. 16" x 23"

Estimated Price: Log in or create account to view price data

Description: Alfred Thompson Bricher (1837 - 1908) Landscape with Wildflowers Watercolor on paper mounted on board 1897. Signed LL ATBricher/ (indiscernible) 7. Born in Portsmouth, New Hampshire, the son of English immigrants, Alfred Thompson Bricher studied art at the Lowell Institute. During his early years in Boston, he became familiar with the art of the Hudson River School, and was specifically inspired by the work of the Luminists, John Kensett, Martin Johnson Heade, Sanford Gifford, and Fitz Hugh Lane. In 1864, Lane's works were shown at the Boston Atheneum. By 1859, Bricher had established a studio in Boston, where he displayed sketches of open-air works. Throughout the 1860's, Bricher created Luminist views of New England shorelines and began to use watercolors. By the 1880's, Bricher had adopted a more tonal approach. His colors had always been predominantly pale blues and greens with touches of intense yellow; all harmoniously blended to convey the sensations of bright, sunny days. Now he concentrated on recording atmospheric conditions, which he conveyed by emphasizing a single, dominant color. Following his second marriage in 1881, Bricher spent summers in Southampton, Long Island, where he created a number of views of the expansive coastline and the village. However, throughout his career, Bricher traveled extensively, visiting the coasts of Maine, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, New York, and Canada. Bricher's work is represented in The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York; The Indianapolis Museum of Art; the Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco; the Dallas Art Museum, as well as many other public and private collections. 22" x 18"

Lot 23: John George Brown, (1831 - 1913), Peek-a-boo, Oil on canvas., 13 1/4" x 9 1/4"

Estimated Price: Log in or create account to view price data

Description: John George Brown (1831 - 1913) Peek-a-boo Oil on canvas. 1869. Inscribed LR: J.G. (illegible)/1869. Born into a poor family in Durham, England, John George Brown earned a reputation as one of 19th-century America's most skilled painters of children, especially entrepreneurial, cheerful street urchins who earned a pittance as boot blacks, newspaper vendors, etc. In some circles, he was dubbed the 'Boot Black Raphael' because of the glowing faces of his child figures and his skill of execution. His paintings of these sympathy-arousing children were so popular in a Victorian era of increased industrialization that he became rich from painting sales as well as royalties from lithographs. Brown showed early drawing talent but was discouraged by his lawyer father who insisted that he learned a trade, so he apprenticed for seven years with a glass cutter at Newcastle-On-Tyne. He worked at this trade in Edinburgh, Scotland and attended the School of the Royal Scottish Academy under Robert Scott Lauder. At age 22, he went to London and earned a living painting portraits. Inspired by a music hall performer singing about the fascination of American life, he emigrated to Brooklyn and supported himself as a glass cutter at the Flint Glass Works in Brooklyn. His designs so impressed his employer that he helped Brown study in New York with miniaturist Thomas Cummings whose daughter Brown married. He studied art at night at the National Academy of Design, and in May, 1856, rented his first studio, which was located in Brooklyn. In 1860, he began painting his signature portraits and juvenile figures, and in 1863, he was elected a member of the National Academy of Design. He also served as a teacher at the Academy where his classes were very popular. To escape the pressure of his buying public and pursue other talents, he painted landscapes, some of them rural scenes including the White Mountains of New Hampshire and the Hudson River Valley with treatment of light and shadow, in the style of Albert Bierstadt and Worthington Whittredge. One of his exhibition venues was the California State Fair in 1881 and 1884. Brown's works are found in numerous museum collections, including The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York, NY; Museum of Fine Arts, Springfield, MA; Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, MA; Newark Museum of Art, Newark, NJ; High Museum of Art, Atlanta, GA; Birmingham Museum of Art, Birmingham, AL; Terra Museum of American Art, Chicago, IL; Cleveland Museum of Art, Cleveland, OH; University of Wyoming Art Museum, Laramie, WY; Yale University Art Gallery, New Haven, CT; and the Corcoran Gallery of Art, Washington, DC; as well as many important private collections. 13 1/4" x 9 1/4"

Estimated Price: Log in or create account to view price data

Description: Charlotte Buell Coman (American; 1833 - 1924) Still Life of Wildflowers Oil on canvas Signed LL: C.B. Coman. Born in Waterville, Iowa, Charlotte Buell Coman was a prominent late 19th, early 20th-century landscape artist known for her Tonalist paintings. She was a key painter in bringing the Barbizon tradition from France to America. At age forty, after the death of her husband and loss of her hearing, she committed herself to a career in art. Her first teacher was James Brevoort, a landscape painter of New York City. She continued for another ten years abroad, first in Paris where she exhibited at the Paris Salon and studied with Harry Thompson and Emile Vernier, and then six years in Holland. A studio fire destroyed the output of these years. In France, she was greatly influenced by the Barbizon painters and their attention to contrasting light and atmosphere as well as working in a broad-sweeping manner without attention to detail. In the early 1880s, she returned permanently to New York City where she had already been exhibiting at the National Academy of Design. In 1876, her painting A French Village, had earned her much praise at the Philadelphia Centennial Exposition. Critics compared her work to Corot. However, she later turned away from European subjects and devoted herself to the American landscape, using a Tonalist approach and suggesting spirituality with misty effects achieved with dominance of subdued blues and greens. Coman received much positive attention including election in 1910 as an Associate to the National Academy of Design, but because of discrimination against women artists by male jurors, she always signed her work C.B. Coman. She continued painting almost to her death at age 89. Her reputation lapsed into obscurity until the mid 1970s when a renewed interest in feminine artists brought new appreciation to her work. 17 1/4" x 26 1/8"

Description: Paul Lauritz (Norwegian/American; 1889 - 1975) Along the Stream, Pasadena, CA Oil on canvas Signed LL: Paul Lauritz. Paul Lauritz was born in picturesque Larvik, Norway. The region's beauty attracted many artists and Lauritz seized the opportunity to observe them as they worked. One of the artists, an English watercolorist, gave Lauritz private lessons in exchange for his family providing room and board. Lauritz also studied at the Larvik Art School before he left for Vancouver, Canada, at the age of sixteen. Lauritz later moved to Portland, Oregon, where he worked as a commercial artist. In 1912, he married Mary Potterton and the couple soon moved to Alaska in search of gold. Although Lauritz did not find his fortune during the years spent in Alaska, he found inspiration for several paintings, and met Alaskan artist Sydney Laurence with whom he exhibited. In 1919, the Lauritz's abandoned their quest for gold and relocated to Los Angeles, California where Lauritz opened a studio. He gained early recognition with his portraits, snow scenes and marines, one of which was commissioned by the king of Norway. However, Lauritz's specialty became landscapes. In addition to painting along the coast of southern California, he traveled and painted extensively in the Sierra Nevada region as well as the deserts of California, Mexico, and Nevada. Lauritz taught at the Chouinard School of Art and the Otis Art Institute. He served as president of the California Art Club for two years and was a member of the Painters and Sculptors Club, the Los Angeles Municipal Art Commission, the Laguna Beach Art Association, the Royal Society of Art in England, and the Salmagundi Club in New York. Throughout his career, the primarily self-taught artist was bestowed with numerous awards for his work from museums, expositions, and clubs throughout California. Paul Lauritz died in Glendale, California in 1975. 16" x 20"

Lot 28: Anna Lee Stacey, (American; 1865 - 1943), Summer Afternoon, Oil on canvasboard, 10" x 14"

Estimated Price: Log in or create account to view price data

Description: Anna Lee Stacey (American; 1865 - 1943) Summer Afternoon Oil on canvasboard Signed LR: Anna L. Stacey. Born in Glasgow, Missouri, Anna Lee Stacey began her studies at the Kansas City Art Association and School of Design, where her instructors included landscape painter and teacher John F. Stacey, whom she married in 1891. The couple settled in Chicago, where Anna enrolled at the Art Institute. By the time she graduated with honors, in 1896, she already had exhibited in the Art Institute's annual exhibition of American art and with the Art Students' League of Chicago and the women artists' Palette Club. Influenced by her Art Institute instructor Leonard Ochtman, a landscape painter, Stacey specialized in figures posed out-of-doors, solidly rendered with the bright color of impressionism. Her watercolors and oil paintings found favor with critics, prize juries, and the women's clubs that offered important patronage to local artists in turn-of-the-century Chicago. In 1905 and again in 1914, she was honored with solo exhibitions at the Art Institute, and she received numerous prizes over the course of her career. In 1900, the Staceys visited Paris for the Exposition Universelle, and Anna studied briefly at the Académie Delecluse; they also stopped in the artists' enclave of Auvers-sur-Oise. Thereafter, Anna's painting style shifted toward a more tonal approach, often featuring subdued light and evening settings. Her work included landscape and marine views as well as images of women and girls posed out-of-doors; later, she gravitated toward portraits and still-life painting. Anna Lee Stacey was a member of the Palette Club, Chicago; the Chicago Watercolor Club, and the Artist Guild of Chicago. She was featured in exhibitions at the Art Institute of Chicago, Illinois; the Corcoran Gallery, Washington D.C., the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts, Philadelphia; and the Panama-Pacific Exposition, San Francisco, California. Her work can be found in the collections of the Chicago Women's Club; Kenwood College, Chicago; the Bridges Collection, Chicago; and the Brauer Museum of Art, Valparaiso, Indiana. 10" x 14"

Estimated Price: Log in or create account to view price data

Description: Harvey Otis Young (1840 - 1901) Colorado Mountain Scene Oil on canvas. 1901. Signed and dated LR: Harvey Young 1901. Born in Lyndon, Vermont, Harvey Young became one of Colorado's leading 19th-century artists, known for his Rocky Mountain landscapes and mining scenes in oil and watercolor. Young attended St. Johnsbury Academy in Vermont, and in 1859 went to California, via Panama, to prospect for gold and pursue painting. He established a studio in San Francisco where he earned an excellent reputation. After serving in the Civil War, he returned to California in 1866 and established a studio. Between 1869 and 1879, he made six trips to Europe to further his art study, which included classes in Paris at the Academie Julian and private classes with Carolus Duran as well as academic training in Munich. In 1878, his work was exhibited at the Paris Salon. He also retained his ties to the American West. In the early 1870s, he went with his wife and children on the railroad's first cross-continental train trip to California. By 1879, he determined to mine for silver in Colorado, and earning a fortune from mining, he abandoned painting for many years. However, he lost the money during the Panic of 1893, and he returned to painting, focusing especially on scenes along the Denver and Rio Grande Railroad. Later Railroad personnel loaned him the use of a private studio car in which he traveled and painted advertising literature for the railroad. For his painting, he had a special formula that combined oil and watercolor, and then he covered the paintings with a varnish that he invented after years of experimentation. His travels also took him often to southern Arizona between 1889 and 1894. There, traveling by burro, he did many sketches including drawings of Tucson in the winter of 1890, although he was much more focused on business matters than his art talents. Young was in Denver in 1893 and was a charter member of the Artists Club formed in December of that year for the purpose of 'advancing the Art interests of Denver.' The Club consisted of members who were themselves artists, including Emma Richardson Cherry, Charles Partridge Adams, and Charles M. Carter. The organization later made it their mission to purchase art work for a collection to be housed in their art museum, a building that did not materialize until 1922 when the Chappell family gifted the group, now called the Denver Art Association, the family's home. The Chappell House was immediately renamed the Denver Art Museum and has evolved into one of Denver's premier cultural agencies, which is currently housed in distinctive architectural structures designed by Geo Ponti and Daniel Liebeskind. His work is in the collection of the Oakland Museum, the Denver Art Museum, the Copley Library in La Jolla, California, Colorado College in Colorado Springs, and the Colorado Historical Society (untitled 1891 gouache/oil on paper). 20" x 28 1/2" (image)

Description: Old Hickory, salesman sample chair; In southern Indiana, a newly transplanted North Carolinian, Billy Richardson, began to make hickory chairs and sell them on Saturdays on the town square in Martinsville.

Others in the Martinsville area studied Richardson's products and banded together in 1892 in an abandoned church, producing hickory sapling furniture as a full-time business. They chose "Old Hickory" as the company name, the same nickname as the late President Jackson. When the company incorporated in 1898, a full line of products was available.
