Hughie Lee-Smith, (African-American; 1915 - 1999), Woman in Red, Oil on canvas., 28

Lot 17: Hughie Lee-Smith, (African-American; 1915 - 1999), Woman in Red, Oil on canvas., 28" x 20"

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

Description: Hughie Lee-Smith (African-American; 1915 - 1999) Woman in Red Oil on canvas. 1970. Signed. Provenance: the family of the artist. Born in Eustis, Florida in 1915 and raised in both Atlanta and Cleveland, Ohio, Hughie Lee-Smith knew from an early age that art was his mission. His mother encouraged his talent by enrolling him in an art class for gifted students at the Cleveland Museum of Art. At 20, Lee-Smith won a Scholastic magazine competition that allowed him to study at the Art School of the Detroit Society of Arts and Crafts. He also studied art at The Cleveland Institute of Art in 1938 and art education at Wayne State University in 1952 and 1953. He also studied theater and dance. Throughout his career, he taught at several distinguished institutions including the Karamu House, Cleveland in the late 1930's, Princeton Country Day School, NJ, 1963-65, Howard University, Washington D.C., 1969-71, the Art Student's League, NYC, 1972-1987, and elsewhere. In 1938-39, Lee-Smith was employed by the Ohio Works Progress Administraion. At this time, he did a series of lithographic prints and painted murals at the Great Lakes Naval Station in Illinois. The Cleveland Museum recognized him for drawing in 1938 and for lithographs in 1939-40. His early works were shown mostly in Chicago and Detroit, at the Southside Community Center, the Snowdon Gallery, and the Detroit Artist's Market. Hughie Lee-Smith's work was characterized by magic realism and biting social commentary. He often depicted man alone in nature or nature disrupted by man-made objects or architecture. His solitary figures depict loneliness and isolation from society. Despite many accolades and awards thoughout his career, Lee-Smith did not enjoy a major solo exhibition of his work until 50 years after he began painting. His first retrospective was held at the New Jersey State Museum, Trenton in 1988. Just two years before his death, he was featured at the Ogunquit Museum of American Art in Maine. In 1994, he was commissioned to paint the official City Hall portrait of former mayor David Dinkins. He died in Albuquerque, New Mexico in 1999 after a long illness. His work can be found in many major collections including the South Side Community Art Center, Chicago; Howard University; the Detroit Institute of Arts, and Wayne State University. 28" x 20"

Leroy Allen, (African-American; 1958 - 2007), Ma'am (Tribute to P.H. Polk), Charcoal and chalk on paper, 39

Lot 18: Leroy Allen, (African-American; 1958 - 2007), Ma'am (Tribute to P.H. Polk), Charcoal and chalk on paper, 39" x 28"

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

Description: Leroy Allen (African-American; 1958 - 2007) Ma'am (Tribute to P.H. Polk) Charcoal and chalk on paper 1994. Signed, titled and dated. Provenance: the family of the artist. Exhibited: Stella Jones Gallery, New Orleans, LA Prentice Herman Polk was the official photographer at Tuskegee University from 1939 until 1984. This drawing by Allen was inspired by Polk's photograph titled, The Boss, executed in 1932. Polk photographed notable African-American figures such as George Washington Carver, the Tuskegee Airmen, and boxer Joe Louis. This remarkable drawing shows the influence of the later drawings of Charles White. Both artists were exceptional draftsmen. "I love to paint and draw. It allows me to share with any number of people my God given gift. My favorite subject is the complexity of our human existence, our interaction with nature, our movement, our expressiveness, our determination, our attitudes and our beauty. I don't necessarily look for all of those elements when I paint, but I am aware of their presence. I often find my subjects in very remote locations. I believe that this connection is spiritual, as are aspects of my art." Leroy Allen's innate artistic talents were initially honed by his parents, who supported and encouraged him every step of the way to remain close to art throughout his early youth. When he graduated from high school, Allen worked as a cartoonist for the Progressive Shopper News, a small black-owned monthly newspaper. He earned a bachelor's degree in design from the University of Kansas in 1977 and cultivated a successful career at Hallmark in Kansas City, Missouri. It was at Hallmark where he met a group of talented black artists known as "The Kansas City 6" who inspired him to enroll in painting classes at the Kansas City Art Institute in 1990. From here, in little more than a decade, he went on to show his work on a national level and receive many honors. Allen felt his first real break was winning the Picture Perfect Merit Award in 1995 from the National Oil and Acrylic Painters' Society. Leroy Allen held solo exhibitions at the Stella Jones Gallery, New Orleans, LA and the Robert Frazier Gallery, Kansas City, MO. He participated in group exhibitions at the American Jazz Museum, Kansas City, MO; Hearne Fine Art, Little Rock, AR, and was featured three years in a row in the Black Creativity Art Exhibition at the Museum of Science and Industry (1996, 1997, 1998). Allen participated in the American Watercolor Society's 133rd Annual Exhibition, NY, 2000 and the National Watercolor Society's 78th Annual Exhibition, CA. In particular, Allen's charcoal drawing entitled, "Papa Jim," was featured in the touring exhibition, Southern Journeys, African American Artists of the South. His pastel, "Jairo," received a merchandise award in "Pastel '98", a national juried exhibition sponsored by the Pastel Society of North Florida at the Fort Walton Museum of Art. Allen was also part of the Black Romantic Art Show at the Studio Museum in Harlem, NY, 2002. He was active in The Light In The Other Room, a collaborative of twenty-two, African American Kansas City based artists whose goal is to create positive images of black people. Allen was a noted figurative artist, adept at working in oils, charcoal, watercolors, and pastels. His technical accomplishments allowed him to reveal a greater depth of humanity and character in his subjects. His favorite subjects were young people. "I like the youth, the strength." A particularly poignant moment in his career occurred when the family of one of his youthful subjects attended the exhibition of the painting, "Sundrops," at the Mississippi Museum of Art. Leroy Allen was equally talented in his rendering of landscapes, especially those of his favorite fishing spots. "They are a part of me," he said, "...I see backroads places that most people don't see." Leroy Allen died in 2007. 39" x 28"

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.

She described her paintings as "American Naive" and depicted numerous genre neighborhood scenes of people of the city's Near North Side.

Exhibition venues included the Chicago Society of Artists and the Art Institute of Chicago.

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"

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.
