WALT KUHN (1877-1949), American painter Archive

Estimate: Log in or create account to view price data

Description: [ART] WALT KUHN (1877-1949), American painter. After studying in many European countries, he helped organize the famous Armory Show (International Exhibition of Modern Art, New York City, 1913). He is noted chiefly for his vigorous studies of circus performers, chorines, and trapeze athletes. His Blue Clown (1931, Whitney Museum, New York City) is the most popular example of his work. He also did a number of brilliant still lifes, as well as designs for musical reviews. Kuhn helped introduce the techniques and theories of modern art to the American public and to many American artists. Offered here are twenty-seven handwritten letters- twenty-five [25] letters are from 1943, one is 1940 & the last is 1948, the year before Walt died. Most are two pages on 8 x 11 in. sheets. The majority of the letters were written from Ogunquit, Maine where the Kuhn's owned a home with a studio. At the end of 1948 he had a nervous breakdown. In some of his letters he starts to wonder about his mental abilities. Walts' letters run the gamut of town gossip to art gossip mentioning names of artists who summered in Ogunquit, war activity near Ogunquit off Boone Island, descriptions of the areas where he paints, his feelings about tourists, how his painting is going, his art patrons and dealers. A Colliers article about Walts' paintings is mentioned in a few letters and a copy of the article goes with the group. One letter is answering a question from a Chicago woman about a version of the 1913 Armory Show held there. The only archive of Kuhn's letters still in private hands.

IMPORTANT ARCHIVE - LETTERS TO WALLY WALLGREN

Estimate: Log in or create account to view price data

Description: [WALLY WALLGREN] Abian A. Wallgren [1891-1948] better known as "Wally" Wallgren, worked as a cartoonist for the Philadelphia Public Ledger and Washington Post before World War I, creating strips like 'Inbad the Sailor' and 'Tired Timothy'. So who was he? A Marine, for starters. An American soldier in the AEF during WW1, Abian "Wally" Wallgren drew comics for "Stars and Stripes." The Stars and Stripes, published exclusively in France during its seventeen-month run, used a layout typical of American newspapers of the day, with wide columns, "all-cap" headlines, and lots of illustrations. The editorial staff assigned to the newspaper was composed mostly of enlisted men, including several career journalists. Second Lieutenant Guy T. Viskniskki from the Wheeler Newspaper Syndicate, New York Times drama critic Alexander Woollcott, bibliophile John Winterich, and cartoonist Abian "Wally" Wallgren of the Washington Post were among those who contributed their experience and skill. Besides expressing editorial opinion, cartoons entertained the troops, offering them humorous stories and images that satirized everyday life in the military. Many of these spoofs, written in 1918 and 1919, remain relevant today. The most popular among the soldiers were Private Abian A."Wally" Wallgren's cartoons and irreverent "Helpful Hints," which poked fun at army conventions from food to uniforms to rank. When a new issue of The Stars and Stripes arrived, the soldiers scanned it first for the cartoons by "Wally" Wallgren. OFFERED HERE are 57 letters (1943-47) from Harold E. Homrig to Wally Wallgren, plus one bank check signed by Wallgren. Most of the letters are from 1946 and all are about Homrig working on a project concerning the exhibition of Wally's cartoons at military sites. Many of the letters have brief handwriting by Wally.

 [MUSIC- THEATRE] Gertrude

Estimate: Log in or create account to view price data

Description: [MUSIC- THEATRE] Gertrude "Gertie" Millar (later Countess of Dudley) (1879-1952) English actress and singer of the early 20th century, known for her performances in Edwardian musical comedies. Beginning her career at age 13, Millar was a prominent star of musical comedies for two decades. She married composer Lionel Monckton, who composed many of her shows and songs that she made famous. After Monckton died in 1924, Millar married the 2nd Earl of Dudley. As a child, Millar performed in London pantomimes, beginning with Babes in the Wood at the St. James Theatre in Manchester, at the age of 13. She started out as a singer and dancer in the music halls of Yorkshire. Later, she moved to London where she was soon earning good notices and better pay appearing in variety show bills. By 1897, she was playing the role of Phyllis Crosby in A Game of Cards at Shodfriars Hall, Boston, England. Next she toured in The New Barmaid in the role of Dora; in The Silver Lining; and as Sadie Pinkhose, the "other woman", in The Lady Detective. In 1899, she played Dandini in Cinderella at the Grand Theatre, Fulham. In the new century, she starred in a series of hit musical comedies produced by George Edwardes. In 1900, she played Isabel Blythe in the touring production of The Messenger Boy. Edwardes's next show was The Toreador in 1901 at the Gaiety Theatre in London. Lionel Monckton, one of the show's composers, had seen Millar in The Messenger Boy and requested that she be given the role of the bridesmaid Cora in the new musical, singing "Keep Off the Grass". She made the song popular and earned a second song, "Captivating Cora", and a third, "I'm not a simple little girl". These hits, and her featured role in A Country Girl (1902), established Millar in London. The Gaiety Theatre closed for renovations in 1902, and the last show at the old theatre was The Linkman; or, Gaiety Memories. Millar starred as Morgiana. She married Monckton in 1902, and he continued to write hit songs for her in subsequent shows. Millar became one of the most photographed women of the Edwardian period. She had top billing as the Hon. Violet Anstruther in The Orchid, the show that opened the new Gaiety (1903; introducing the songs "Little Mary", "Liza Ann", and "Come with me to the zoo"). She starred as Rosalie in The Spring Chicken (1905; singing "Alice sit by the fire" and "The Delights of London") and as Lally in The New Aladdin (1906). She next starred as Mitzi in The Girls of Gottenberg (1907; singing the duet "Two Little Sausages", with Edmund Payne, and the Wagnerian parody "Rhinegold"). Soon afterwards, Edwardes cast her as Franzi at the Hicks Theatre in the English-language production of Ein Walzertraum (A Waltz Dream, 1908) by Oscar Straus. Although Millar was able to sell the light musical comedy songs composed for her at the Gaiety, Oscar Straus's music was too demanding for her small voice, and she was sent to New York to star in the Broadway production of The Girls of Gottenberg. After she returned to London, some of Millar's biggest successes were still in front of her. They included the title role of the hit Gaiety musical, Our Miss Gibbs (1909), with Millar introducing the songs "Moonstruck", "Yorkshire", and "Our farm", all written for her by Monckton. Monckton and Millar then moved to Edwardes' newest theatre, the Adelphi, where she played the title role, Prudence Pym, in another international hit, The Quaker Girl (1910). In this, she popularised the songs "The Quaker Girl", "The Little Grey Bonnet", and "Tony from America". After this, she returned to continental operetta, playing Lady Babby in Edwardes's English language version of Franz Lehár's Zigeunerliebe (Gipsy Love, 1912) at Daly's Theatre . In this role, the musical demands were light and the show was a moderate success. She returned to the Adelphi to play Nancy Joyce in The Dancing Mistress (1912), and back at Daly's she played Kitty Kent in The Marriage Market (1913). This was followed by the role of Nan in a major revival of A Country Girl (1914). She also played Sallie Denbigh in The House of Bondage, a 1914 film. SIGNED postcard size photograph from the play "The Girls of Gottenberg", dated 1908. Approx. 3-1/8 x 5-1/4". VG..

[LINCOLN] LEONARD W. VOLK (1828-1895) American sculptor

Estimate: Log in or create account to view price data

Description: [LINCOLN] LEONARD W. VOLK (1828-1895) American sculptor. Most famous for making a life mask of American President Abraham Lincoln. In 1857, he settled in Chicago, where he helped to establish the Academy of Design and was for eight years its head. In 1860 he made a life mask of Lincoln, of whom only one other was ever made (by Clark Mills in 1865). In the early part of spring in 1860, during Abraham Lincoln\'s visit to Chicago, Volk asked him to sit for a bust. When Lincoln agreed, the artist decided to start by doing a life mask. Lincoln found the process of letting wet plaster dry on his face, followed by a skin-stretching removal process, \"anything but agreeable.\" But he endured it with good humor, and when he saw the final bust, he was quite pleased, declaring it \"the animal himself.\" Volk later used the life mask and bust of 1860 as the basis for other editions, including a full-length statue of Lincoln.OFFERED HERE: Signed 1893 National Bank of Illinois bank check, approx. 3 x 6 in., star & one other cancellation.

Mezieres (1721-1789) French architect and theoretician

Estimate: Log in or create account to view price data

Description: Nicolas Le Camus de Mezieres (1721-1789) French architect and theoretician. He was born and died in Paris. He published several works on architectural and related subjects, including Architecture of Expression, and The Theatre of Desire at the End of the Ancien Régime; Or, The Analogy of Fiction with Architectural Innovation. Le Camus developed a theory of architecture in which the character of a building should express its destination or the social status of its client. Unlike previous character theories in architecture, Le Camus's theory was based on an explicit analogy between architecture and theatre. His architectural mode of expression followed a temporal progression similar to the dramatic unfolding of a play, and gradations in ornamentation throughout the interior of a building resembled a succession of stage sets in a theatrical performance.

He also served as art director for Spain's first four-reel film, in which he also played the villain. While still in his teens, Diego enlisted in the Spanish cavalry. He served with the Spanish forces for two years, including a six-month stint in the Rif War. Diego reported that he was wounded by an enemy saber during the Riff campaign. After the war, Diego cut off contact with his family and traveled to Paris, where he was exposed to the latest in Cubism, Abstraction, and Surrealism.
