STUART DAVIS | Portrait of a Woman

Estimate: Log in or create account to view price data

Description: oil on canvas

Condition Report: The following condition report has been provided by Simon Parkes, Simon Parkes Art Conservation, Inc. 502 East 74th St. New York, NY 212-734-3920, simonparkes@msn.com, an independent restorer who is not an employee of Sotheby's. This work has not been restored for many years, probably since the early 1970s when it was acquired by the present owner. Many early Davis paintings have suffered, mainly from a chaotic studio environment not uncommon for young artists. In this case, it seems that the painting has a glue lining from the 1970s and was probably heavily varnished and retouched at that time. Beneath the heavy varnish and dirt layer are restorations that are not visible under ultraviolet light. However, it can be seen with the naked eye that there is a horizontal disturbance beneath the chin of the sitter running towards the right edge and another running through the center of the torso. These areas may indicate that the canvas was removed from its stretcher and perhaps folded or improperly packed. There are other spots of retouching around the edges, but these are not significant. Some or all of these retouches or repainted areas could be Davis’ own. If and when the work is cleaned, the heavy varnish would be removed to reveal a considerably more textured and lively surface and a brighter and more colorful palette. However, there is a good chance that horizontal losses and damages across the center of the work and through the lower quarter of the work would also be revealed after any soluble retouches were removed. The signature and date are original. The condition and timeline and origin of the repainting or restoration can only be determined if the picture is properly tested.In response to your inquiry, we are pleased to provide you with a general report of the condition of the property described above. Since we are not professional conservators or restorers, we urge you to consult with a restorer or conservator of your choice who will be better able to provide a detailed, professional report. Prospective buyers should inspect each lot to satisfy themselves as to condition and must understand that any statement made by Sotheby's is merely a subjective qualified opinion.NOTWITHSTANDING THIS REPORT OR ANY DISCUSSIONS CONCERNING CONDITION OF A LOT, ALL LOTS ARE OFFERED AND SOLD "AS IS" IN ACCORDANCE WITH THE CONDITIONS OF SALE PRINTED IN THE CATALOGUE.

WILLIAM JAMES GLACKENS | Nymphet Series, with Man

Estimate: Log in or create account to view price data

Description: Around 1915, Glackens produced a few enigmatic works in which he experimented with the female form in motion, usually within a mythological context. Professor William Gerdts speculates that the artist's inspiration for his 'Nymphet Series' might be earlier works by Pierre Puvis de Chavannes, Arthur B. Davies, Henri Matisse or even Edouard Manet.  He writes that these works 'have little in common with Glackens's trademarks, showing no hint of romance, gentility, or domestic bliss.  Instead, they are infused with an air of mystery, exoticism and even danger' and reveal 'an unexpectedly dark and threatening side of Glackens' (William H. Gerdts, William Glackens, New York, 1996, p. 182). Here, a voluptuous nude woman, a nymph, emerging from a tree, prods a young girl forward into the forest as a grown man lurks threateningly in the background. In mythology, the nymph is the guardian of wild nature and a symbol of female fertility, who can sing and dance with abandon and enjoys complete sexual freedom.  While one can speculate endlessly about the symbols and meaning, it is clear that the artist was experimenting with the scene's artistic possibilities.

EDWARD HOPPER | Figure Study for

Estimate: Log in or create account to view price data

Description: The present work is a study for one of Hopper's seminal paintings, Cape Cod Morning, also painted in 1950, which is in the collection of the Smithsonian American Art Museum, Washington, D.C. Hopper’s drawing gives us a fascinating glimpse into his artistic process and how he uses the hands and forearms of the model to create dramatic tension. From the standing figure, Hopper adds two vignettes. He specifically focuses on the tensed muscles in the hands as they grip around a table edge and as they support the weight of the body.   The muscles in the upper part of the forearm also receive special attention; they clench and bulge as the model leans forward.  Here is what the final figure in the painting feels physically as she looks beyond the window out into the start of the day.  From this drawing, Hopper proceeds in the painting to slightly adjust the angle of her back and the turn of her head to complete an image of morning in America that continues to engage our thoughts and emotions to the present day .
