Raphael Gleitsmann, (American/Ohio; 1910 - 1995), Substance of a Town, Oil on board., 27 1/2

Lot 25: Raphael Gleitsmann, (American/Ohio; 1910 - 1995), Substance of a Town, Oil on board., 27 1/2" x 39 1/2"

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

Description: Raphael Gleitsmann (American/Ohio; 1910 - 1995) Substance of a Town Oil on board. Signed LR. Raphael Gleitsmann, born in 1910, spent most of his life in Akron, Ohio. He was a self-taught artist whose only "formal" training came from Miss Calvin at Central High School and Paul Travis at the Cleveland School of Art. Although he favored oil painting, he also worked in watercolor, photography and other media. The artist's earlier works were idealized presentations of life in Middle America during the Great Depression in the realistic style. Gleitsmann served as a combat engineer in World War II from 1943-1945. While in Europe he created quaint sketches that also recorded the devastation caused by the war. He was wounded at the Rhine River, received the Purple Heart and returned to Akron. Everything he saw and experienced at war abroad affected his art. Although he initially returned to painting in his signature realistic manner, he quickly began to grow into a more abstracted, expressionistic style, based on imagination and memory, which focused on post-Apocalyptic imagery such as ruins and cemeteries. "The war experience put something into the work that it had never had before-a greater awareness of such things as the attrition of time . . . what happened to us," said Gleitsmann in a 1982 interview. "It's something deep in the experience that does shift focus around, and you are different and often better." Gleitsmann received national recognition for these works when he received first prize in a 1948 Carnegie Institute exhibition of international contemporary painting beating out Andrew Wyeth. These war-inspired paintings, may also have led him to end his career as an artist around 1954, Gleitsmann may have wished to put the horrors of war behind him "it's something like having a belief-believing that what you're doing is of importance . . . when you lose the belief, it seems there's no return . . . mostly I just found I really had nothing to say anymore," said Gleitsmann. After Gleitsmann retired from painting, he first tried framing and then focused on restoration work on oil paintings and works of paper. The artist passed away in 1995.

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

Description: August Biehle (American/Ohio; 1885 - 1979) Oil on canvas The son of a German immigrant painter of decorative murals in Cleveland, Ohio, he achieved distinction as one of Ohio's most prolific and talented artists, especially noted for design and draftsmanship. His styles embraced Expressionism, Fauvism, Cubism, and American Scene Realism, and he worked in a variety of media including graphite, oil, gouache, pastel, tempera, and lithography. He started drawing as a youngster and served as an apprentice to his father working on decorative commissions in Cleveland, Chicago, and surrounding areas. In 1903, when he was eighteen, he went to Munich to study at the Kunstgewerbeschule, a respected arts and crafts school. In 1908, he began working as a color consultant to Sherwin Williams Paint Company, and two years later returned to Munich where he studied at the Royal Academy and came under the influence of various modernist movements. He became an important link between these styles and Ohio painters, joining the artists' colony led by Henry Keller near Sandusky. In the 1920s and 30s, he did numerous American Scene paintings and painted WPA murals during the Depression. From 1913 to 1952, he earned his living as a lithographer but during this time painted independently. In the 1960s, he turned to complete abstraction. He died in 1979, having had a career of nearly seventy years. His paintings have been in numerous exhibitions including the Cleveland Museum of Art, the Butler Museum in Youngstown, the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts in Philadelphia and the Whitney Museum in New York City. 24" x 30"

Lot 30: Alfred Maurer, (American; 1868 - 1932), Still life with flower, Watercolor on paper, 21" x 13 1/2"

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

Description: Alfred Maurer (American; 1868 - 1932) Still life with flower Watercolor on paper Signed LR. Called the first American modernist painter, Alfred Maurer began as a traditionalist and then explored many styles including Impressionism, Tonalism, Fauvism and Cubism. He developed a rich, brushy, tonal style, influenced by Frans Hals and Diego Velasquez, as well as William Merritt Chase, John Singer Sargent and James Whistler. In 1901, his painting titled "An Arrangement," done in the rich, impressionist, tonal style of Whistler won first prize at the Carnegie International Exhibition. In the 1920s, he focused on still life and figural pieces, many of them Cubist in style. He was born in New York City, the son of Louis Maurer who was a commercial artist for Currier & Ives. Young Alfred learned commercial art from working in the same lithographic business as his father. In 1884, he enrolled in the National Academy of Design and in 1897, left for Paris where he stayed until 1914 and studied briefly at the Academie Julian. Between 1905 and 1907, Maurer abandoned his tonal style, and a promising career as a traditionalist, and developed instead a brilliant Fauvist approach to color and form. His conversion may have been prompted by friendship with Gertrude and Leo Stein. He was using high-keyed colors in place of muted tonalities, strong contracts of color and more simplified, angular schemes of figural representation. Between 1905 and 1907, Maurer, influenced by his friendship with expatriates and avant-garde focused Gertrude and Leo Stein as well as Henri Matisse and Paul Cezanne, moved away from Tonalism to Fauvism, and for this reason, some have called him the first modernist American painter. He returned to New York City and circulated among most of the young modernist painters of the city and seemed much influenced by the painting of Marsden Hartley and Arthur Dove. Interestingly he was not of particular interest to Alfred Stieglitz, who prided himself on sponsoring leading-edge artists, but he did exhibit in Stieglitz' Photo-Secession Gallery in 1909. Since almost all American artists had left Europe after the outbreak of World War I, the period between 1914 and 1919 was most important for the development of modern art in America. Maurer returned from Europe in 1914 and became friendly with most of the young modernists. Exhibition venues for him included ones oriented towards modernism such as the Armory Show of 1913, when modernist art was first widely exhibited in America, and the Society of Independent Artists beginning 1917 until his death in 1932. In 1932, he committed suicide, which some attributed to his alienation from popular acceptance and from his stressful relationship with his father who lived to be one-hundred years old and died a few months before his son. 21" x 13 1/2"

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

Description: Konrad Cramer (American; 1888 - 1963) Two Dancers Casein on board 1954. Estate Stamp, Date & Title verso. A painter of abstraction including numerous still lifes and non-objective work, he became one of America's earliest modernist painters who founded and directed the Woodstock, New York Art Association and the Woodstock School of Painting. In painting style, he was one of the more radical artists working there, adapting cubism to the local landscape. He divided his time between Woodstock and Manhattan and was highly prominent in progressive art circles. He was a close friend of Alfred Stieglitz, who interested him in photography, and this led to Cramer's directing and teaching at The Woodstock School of Miniature Photography. He was also a skillful illustrator and textile designer. He was born in Wurtzburg, Germany, and was early influenced by the Munich expressionists called der "Blaue Reiter," translated "Blue Rider." The group was founded by Wassily Kandinsky and was the avant-garde art movement of its day. Cramer used oil, watercolor, and ink in a loose, free flowing style that depicted fish, nudes and other objects. From that subject matter, he switched to Cubism, inspired by Cezanne's planes of light. In 1911, he married an American art student and emigrated to America, where he began his distinguished career. In 1913, he established his American reputation with a pioneering series of abstract paintings. His post World War I style became a fusion of European modernism with imagery of American culture such as common household objects in his still lifes. His work is in numerous museums including the Phoenix Art Museum in Arizona. 16" x 20"

Description: John Hauser (1858/59 - 1913) Four Indians on horseback Gouache on paper Signed and dated 1909 LR. Featured in the 2005 Antiques Road Show, Indianapolis Edition. Born in Cincinnati, Ohio, John Hauser was one of several early 20th-century Ohio artists known for paintings of Western Indians. His birth date is given as both 1858 and 1859. He is given credit for doing much to educate Americans about the culture of frontier Indians, including Apache, Navajo, Pueblo, and Sioux. He also did a series of portraits of Indian chiefs such as Sitting Bull, Red Cloud, Spotted Tail and Lone Bear. Hauser was the son of a German cabinet maker and showed early aptitude for art. Before age 15, he studied at the Ohio Mechanic's Institute and at the Cincinnati Art Academy, and he later studied with Thomas Noble at the McMicken Art School. In 1880, he enrolled in the Munich Royal Academy of Fine Arts as a student of Nicholas Gysis and then did further study in Dusseldorf and Paris, staying in Europe until 1891. He taught drawing in the Cincinnati public schools, and in 1891, the same year he accepted that teaching assignment, he traveled to Arizona and New Mexico where he was captivated by the scenery and Indians. After this initial trip, he continued to make yearly visits to reservations where he did highly realistic depictions of Indian figures, genre, and animals. He did many portraits of famed Indian chiefs including Lone Bear, Spotted Tail, and High Horse. His love and sympathy for the Indians was recognized in 1901 when he and his wife were adopted into the Sioux nation, and he was given the name "Straight White Shield" and his wife was named "Bring Us Sweets." His last work was a mural titled Perry's Victory for the Cincinnati Yacht Club, of which he was one of the founders. 11 3/4" x 17 3/4"

Webber was a leader in Cincinnati art circles during the latter half of the 19th century.

The painting shows fugitive slaves arriving at the farm of the notable Cincinnati abolitionists Levi and Catherine Coffin and Hannah Haycock leading a group of blacks to freedom at dawn on a cold wintry day. The painting was created for the 1893 World's Fair in Chicago, but represents an event that would have occurred much earlier. Levi Coffin, a station master of the Underground Railroad helped more than 3,000 slaves escape to freedom. Ted Lind from the Cincinnati Art Museum, where the painting "Underground Railroad" is in the collection of, describes the painting, "as an art object, historic document, or an illustration of a great American story. . . . It makes history come alive and can serve to motivate students to see the history of the underground railroad as being the stories of real, flesh and blood people."

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

Description: Paul Lauritz (Norweigian/American; 1889 - 1975) Summer Farm Oil on board Signed. 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. He 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 he 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. 11 1/2" x 14 1/4"

Lot 49: Oscar Bluemner, (German/American; 1867 - 1938), Longhill, New Providence, NJ, Colored pencil on paper, 4 1/2" x 5 3/4"

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

Description: Oscar Bluemner (German/American; 1867 - 1938) Longhill, New Providence, NJ Colored pencil on paper c. 1915. Provenance: Hirschl & Adler. An early modernist painter, Oscar Bluemner was trained as an architect in Berlin. A disagreement over art with Emporer William II led to his emigration to America (Chicago) in 1892. After moving to New York City, he won a competition in 1900 for the design of the courthouse in Bronx, New York, but his partner stole the commission from him. Eventually he won a lawsuit against him, but by then he had turned to painting and away from architecture. Bluemner first adopted the impressionist style and urban subject matter of Maurice Prendergast, but after a trip to Europe, his style changed drastically to that which was geometric and reflected Cubism and Futurism. His work was well received by the critics, especially when he was endorsed and promoted by Alfred Stieglitz who sponsored Bluemner's first American exhibition. However, sales were not strong during most of his career. As he suffered increasing poverty and poor health, he became more and more depressed and committed suicide in 1938. During his career, he exhibited at the Royal Academy of Berlin, 1892 (medal); Gurlitt Galleries, Berlin, 1912 (solo); Armory Show, NYC, 1913; 291 Gallery, NYC, 1915 (solo); Forum Exhibition of Modern American Painters, 1916; Bourgeois Gallery, NYC, 1917-1923; The Intimate Gallery, NYC, 1928 (solo); Whitney Museum of American Art, 1932; Salons of America; University Gallery, University of Minnesota, 1939 (retrospective). His work can be found in the Whitney Museum of American Art; Philadelphia Museum of Art; Metropolitan Museum of Art; the Fogg A. Museum, Harvard University; and the University Gallery, University of Minnesota, Minneapolis. 4 1/2" x 5 3/4"
