EUGÈNE BOUDIN, (FRENCH 1824-1898),

Estimate: Log in or create account to view price data

Description: EUGÈNE BOUDIN (french 1824-1898) "VIEUX BASSIN À ANVERS" Signed, located and dated ''E. Boudin/Anvers 71'' bottom left, oil on panel 12 1/4 x 12 3/4 in. (31 x 32.4cm) provenance: Hôtel Drouot, Paris, The Collection of Charles de Bériot, sale of March 11, 1901, no.7. The Collection of Boussod-Valadon, Paris. Christie''s, London, sale of His Royal Highness Prince Michael of Kent, November 29, 1982, no. 15. Christie''s, London, sale of June 24, 1997, lot 263. The Estate of Andre and Nancy Brewster, Maryland. literature: Robert Schmit, Eugène Boudin: Catalogue Raisonné de l''oeuvre peint 1824-1898, Paris: 1984, premier supplément, p. 20, no. 3700, (illustrated). note: Famed 19th century French landscapist Jean-Baptiste-Camille Corot once called Eugène Boudin ''the King of the Skies'' – an ode to the latter''s command of painting oft cumulus-filled vistas of his native France, as well as of other continental seaside towns, characteristically executed en plein air. Born in Honfleur on the estuary of the Seine, Eugène Boudin''s oils are inextricably linked to the water and sea, and in his depiction of Anvers as well as Trouville featured in this auction, the master''s signature manner of painting notable vistas with a fine, feathery touch is on full display. Trouville, along with Toques, Deauville, Dunkirk, and Caudebec-en-Caux were all locations that Boudin visited and painted throughout his long and successful tenure as one of France''s most important 19th century painters of sea and sky. Boudin started painting at the age of twenty-two, travelling first to Paris, then to Flanders, and making regular trips to Brittany, Normandy, Belgium, the Netherlands, and Venice. A regular exhibitor at the Paris Salons, he was ultimately bestowed the honor of Knight of the Legion d''Honneur. Around 1857 or 1858, Boudin became acquainted with the then relatively obscure teenage artist, Claude Monet. Boudin and Monet would go on to become lifelong friends, with Boudin serving as a mentor and teacher to the younger French impressionist. Boudin in fact exhibited his work alongside the work of Monet and other French luminaries including Berthe Morisot, Camille Pissarro, Pierre-Auguste Renoir, Alfred Sisley, Leopold Robert, Adolphe-Felix Cals, and Edgar Degas in the first exhibition of Impressionist Painting in 1874. While generally not labeled as being one of the Impressionist group of painters, Boudin had a profound influence on many of his fellow artists, including Monet, who expressed his indebtedness to Boudin by stating simply: ''If I have become a painter it is entirely due to Eugène Boudin.'' So revered was Boudin and his paintings that in the artist''s mid-career, the renowned Parisian art dealer Paul Durand-Ruel purchased every painting in the artist''s studio, ultimately going on to serve as Boudin''s lifetime dealer.

JULES ACHILLE NOËL, (FRENCH 1815-1881),

Estimate: Log in or create account to view price data

Description: JULES ACHILLE NOËL (french 1815-1881) "PLAGE DU TREPORT" Signed, located and dated ''Jules Noël/ Treport/ 1874'' bottom left, oil on canvas 10 3/4 x 15 1/8 in. (27.3 x 36.4cm) And a companion: "PLAGE DU TREPORT" Signed, located and dated ''Jules Noël/ Treport/ 1874'' bottom right, oil on canvas 10 3/4 x 15 1/8 in. (27.3 x 36.4cm) A pair (2) provenance: Richard Green, London. The Estate of Andre and Nancy Brewster, Maryland. note: Born Louis Assez Noël, Jules Noël was a highly regarded French landscape and maritime painter who worked mostly in Normandy and Brittany. He exhibited at the Paris Salon from 1840 to 1879, and served as a Professor of Design at the prestigious Lycée Henri-IV. His canvases, including his numerous views of the beaches and beachgoers at Treport, and often his views of a seaside town''s boats, quays, port and cliffs, are amongst his most beloved and successful efforts within his vast oeuvre. Noël''s oils, often thinned like watercolor, have been compared to the paintings of his fellow Frenchman Eugène Isabey – though the latter''s keen interest in shipwrecks was not a favored subject of Noël. The artist''s charming and joyous Normandy beach scenes, like the present pair of paintings, are rendered in bright hues with a slight Impressionist touch, the slightly overcast blue skies coupled with gentle breeze, as represented by the flags blowing at center right.

Condition Report: Each painting in very good to excellent overall condition. The relined canvases with only very slight localized retouching in part/parts of sky. Specifically, the canvas signed at bottom left: with very slight, in some cases pinpoint retouches in the sky; an area of canvas at lower center left with slight indentation; the canvas signed at bottom right: with very slight, pinpoint retouches to top edge and to an area at upper left corner. Frame (each): 16 3/4 x 21 in. Descriptions provided in both printed and on-line catalogue formats do not include condition reports. The absence of a condition statement does not imply that the lot is in perfect condition or completely free from wear and tear, imperfections or the effects of aging. Interested bidders are strongly encouraged to request a condition report on any lots upon which they intend to bid, prior to placing a bid.

EDWARD SEAGO, (BRITISH 1910-1974),

Estimate: Log in or create account to view price data

Description: EDWARD SEAGO (british 1910-1974) "THE THAMES AT RICHMOND" Signed ''Edward Seago'' bottom left; also inscribed with title verso, oil on board 27 1/2 x 37 3/8 in. (69.9 x 94.9 cm) provenance: Richard Green, London. The Estate of Andre and Nancy Brewster, Maryland. note: Hailing from the County of Norfolk in Norwich, Edward Seago was not only a hugely popular painter in both oils and watercolors, he was also an accomplished illustrator and writer. Largely self-taught, Seago''s colorful biography includes an early stint in Bevin''s Travelling Circus, resulting in the production of circus-themed artworks and two circus-themed books: Circus Company, written in 1933, and Sons of Sawdust, written one year later. Seago served as a camouflage officer during World War II, and was later a member of the Royal Engineers, during which time he painted scenes of the Italian campaign at the request of Field Marshal Alexander. It was with the Royal Engineers that he met a number of important people, including George VI, Churchill, and Macmillan. Seago in fact travelled in numerous prominent social circles, leading directly to his receiving patronage from such notable figures as Henry Mond, Second Lord Melchett. His extensive journeys outside his native Norwich permitted him to paint scenes of Paris, Venice, Morocco, Holland, Portugal and Hong Kong, as well as many other distant locales. Still, it is his British landscapes for which Seago is arguably best known and admired, and today he is seen as an important painter who helped to carry forth the tradition of Norwich School painting into the 20th century. Seago''s realistically rendered landscapes have generally been described as being atmospheric, spontaneous, and impressionist in execution. A testament to his popularity and skill include his appointment as an official Coronation artist, his always sold out multi-year annual exhibitions at the prestigious Colnaghi Gallery from the years of 1945 to 1967, as well as the continual sales and eventually gifts of his paintings to the late Queen Elizabeth, the Queen Mother.

Condition Report: Excellent overall condition, with only very slight retouch in small areas of sky beneath top of frame; some hue variations seen under u.v. light are a result of pigments used, and are not restoration. Frame: 33 x 43 x 2 1/2 in. Descriptions provided in both printed and on-line catalogue formats do not include condition reports. The absence of a condition statement does not imply that the lot is in perfect condition or completely free from wear and tear, imperfections or the effects of aging. Interested bidders are strongly encouraged to request a condition report on any lots upon which they intend to bid, prior to placing a bid.

Description: EDWARD SEAGO (british 1910-1974) "HONFLEUR" Signed ''Edward Seago'' bottom left, oil on canvas 26 x 36 1/8 in. (66 x 91.8cm) provenance: The Estate of Andre and Nancy Brewster, Maryland. note: The lower Normandy town of Honfleur was one of Seago''s favorite subjects. Beginning in 1951, he travelled there often and painted the local topography and environs – including its quay, harbor, harbor steps, fishing boats and fishermen – as executed in the morning, afternoon, and evening hours. His deft touch, warm palette and ability to effectively capture the effects of dappled sunlight glistening off the port waters are fully on display in the present painting.

(66 x 91.4cm) provenance: Richard Green, London. The Estate of Andre and Nancy Brewster, Maryland. note: The present painting depicts a view from aboard the Royal Research Ship John Biscoe, which was a supply and research vessel used by the British Antarctic Survey. Its namesake was the British explorer and mariner John Biscoe (1794-1843), who among his many explorations circumnavigated the Antarctic from 1830 to 1833. It is mentioned by His Royal Highness The Duke of Edinburgh in the foreword of the book, Her Home The Antarctic: The Royal Research Ship John Biscoe, that Edward Seago was among the Duke''s guests aboard the ship in 1956. Seago was described as being a ''compulsive painter,'' having painted many scenes both inside and looking out from the ship, including one of the vessel in its icy surroundings which was given to hang in the wardroom upon his departure.

OGDEN MINTON PLEISSNER, (AMERICAN 1905-1983), HUNTING IN GEORGIA

Estimate: Log in or create account to view price data

Description: OGDEN MINTON PLEISSNER (american 1905-1983) HUNTING IN GEORGIA Signed ''Pleissner'' bottom right; also inscribed in pencil with date ''1960'' in the unpainted margin bottom right, watercolor over traces of pencil on paper Image size: 17 1/4 x 28 1/8 in. (18.4 x 71.4cm) Sheet size: 18 1/4 x 29 3/8 in. (46.4 x 74.5cm) provenance: The Estate of Andre and Nancy Brewster, Maryland. note: Though raised in Brooklyn, summers spent at a Wyoming boy''s camp had a profound effect on the young Ogden Pleissner, instilling in him a life-long love of nature. As an avid sportsman, Pleissner was keenly aware of the technical aspects involved with the pursuits of fly-fishing and salmon fishing, as well as grouse and woodcock hunting – knowledge of which he successfully applied as a draftsman and watercolorist to his very popular scenes depicting man at leisure in the great outdoors. The present painting will be accompanied by a copy of a handwritten letter from the artist, dated June 11, 1982, and locates the painting''s execution to ''quail country'' in Albany, Georgia, and references the artist''s plans to go salmon fishing the following week.

Condition Report: Framed, in excellent overall condition, with fresh colors and no evidence of restoration or losses. The work is executed on heavy grade (Whatman) paper, the (apparently) full sheet with an unpainted 'border' area outside the image, with three tape pieces at top edge, front of sheet, in the unpainted border area, affixed to undermat. The verso of sheet has three tape piece remnants that are no longer affixed to the mat, and the verso of sheet with some minor discolored old tape residue, which is not sticky or tacky (and only on the verso of the sheet). Along outer left edge, front of sheet, not in the image, there is a piece of brown papertape. We note apparent tack holes at outer upper left and upper right corners, in the image, presumably done by Pleissner during his painting of this work. The undermat to which this work is affixed has a lot of foxing spots. These foxing spots are located ONLY on the undermat and NOT on the painted work. Descriptions provided in both printed and on-line catalogue formats do not include condition reports. The absence of a condition statement does not imply that the lot is in perfect condition or completely free from wear and tear, imperfections or the effects of aging.
