Description: "The story of the relationship of Native peoples and horses is one of the great sagas of human contact with the animal worldÉWhen American Indians encountered horses-which some tribes call the Horse Nation-they found an ally, inspiring and useful in times of peace, and intrepid in times of war.

Description: Artist: P.S. Gordon Title: Metropolitan Opera 1992 Medium: SerigraphSignature: Signed by artistEdition: Out of 150 Image Size: 40 1/8" x 25 5/8" inches. Paper Size: 47 1/8" x 31 1/2"Condition: ExcellentBiographyPatrick S. Gordon (1953- ) gained national attention with a series of solo exhibitions, beginning in 1982, at the Fischbach Gallery in New York City, and Joseph Gierek Fine Art in his then-adopted hometown of Tulsa, Oklahoma. Patrick rose to prominence on the strength of his large, deeply saturated, somewhat eccentric watercolor still lifes and portraiture, gaining a reputation as an important painter of the "New American Realism" school. Coinciding with a move to New York City in 2003, Patrick began working almost exclusively in oil-on-canvas, an early love, and a shift that represented and embodied a creative infusion of urban life and new beginnings. Patrick's newer work, and most of the pieces featured on this website, are executed in this medium. Many of the subjects and themes of Patrick's important, earlier works are still present, but the personal and eccentric have asserted themselves anew in a subtle and beautiful bloom of fresh inspiration.

by Morgan O'Driscoll

April 20, 2015, 6:00 PM GMT

Skibbereen, Ireland

Estimated Price: €2,500 - €3,500

Description: Fred Cuming RA (b.1930) British Winter Sea oil on board signed lower left h:50.50  w:61 cm. Provenance: Jorgensen Fine Art, Dublin (label verso) Private Collection Fred Cuming was born in London in 1930 of English, Irish and Scottish ancestory. He received his art education at Sidcup School of Art and at the Royal College of Art in 1951-1955. He was awarded the Abbey Minor Travelling Scholarship to visit Italy. He was elected a Royal Academician (RA) in 1974. He is also a member of the New English Art Club. As well as continuing to paint Italian scenes, including Venice, he still devotes much time to the landscape of the Southern English coastline, including Hastings and Rye. His art has an impressionist quality which captures "the fleeting impressions of his surroundings."He first encountered such landscapes as a child evacuee during the Blitz. The powerful contrast to his home in London created an enduring love for it. In 1996 he was commissioned to paint a portrait of Stephen Hawkins which now hangs in the National Portrait Gallery, London. Cuming was honoured in 2001 with being the featured artist in the R.A. Summer Exhibition with an entire gallery dedicated to his work. He has continued to exhibit in many galleries and in solo exhibitions throughout the UK.

DEAN CORNWELL (American, 1892-1960) Police Holding Cuba

Lot 68060: DEAN CORNWELL (American, 1892-1960) Police Holding Cuba

by Heritage Auctions

May 2, 2015, 2:00 PM CST

Dallas, TX, USA

Estimated Price: $30,000 - $50,000

Description: DEAN CORNWELL (American, 1892-1960) Police Holding Cuban Gangsters at Waterfront, The Saturday Evening Post story illustration, May 17, 1947 Oil on canvas 21-5/8 x 50-5/8 inches (54.9 x 128.6 cm) Signed lower right: Dean Cornwell PROVENANCE: Illustration House, Inc., New York, March 21, 2005, lot 37. Dean Cornwell's monumental and intricate Police Holding Cuban Gangsters at Waterfront, accompanying the 1947 Saturday Evening Post story "Night Boat from Havana" by Burnham Carter, is one of the finest from the period to come to market. As a story illustration, the painting exhibits Cornwell's hallmark expressive characters, from the shifty, Clark Gable-inspired thug hiding against a dock post in the foreground, to the wildly gesticulating pack of gangsters surprised by a policeman in the background. In fact, Cornwell used as models for these captured smugglers his artist friends: Frank Reilly, Arthur William Brown, Gilbert Bundy, Harry Beckhoff, and John Gannam. The stylistic elements of Police Holding Cuban Gangsters at Waterfront also point to Cornwell's training as a muralist: deep, saturated colors; flattened, tapestry-like patterning created from the intersecting rope lines; and a panoramic format, where the narrative unfolds in multiple planes. One of America's most notable muralists, Cornwell painted over twenty murals for public institutions and served as president of the National Mural Painters Society in 1954.

T. 1887 FROM THE JEAN AND GRAHAM DEVOE WILLIFORD CHARITABLE TRUST Dwight Tryon was one of America's first Tonalists, and an influential artist and teacher who popularized the muted, poetic style epitomized by his marsh landscapes and quiet beach scenes, such as the present work of 1887. Born in Connecticut, Tryon developed his technique in France, where he studied at the École de Beaux-Arts in Paris and trained under Charles Daubigny in Barbizon. He returned to United States in 1881 and spent nearly forty years as an instructor at Smith College, eventually being named Director of the Art School. His atmospheric, Barbizon-inspired landscapes won countless honors, including gold medals at the American Art Association, the Carnegie Institute, the Munich Exposition of 1892, the Pan-American Exposition of 1901, and the St. Louis Expositions of 1904. The capitalist Charles Lang Freer was his lifelong patron, and the Freer Gallery of Art in Washington, D.C. now houses the largest collection of Tryon's work. His paintings are also in the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the National Gallery of Art, the Smithsonian American Art Museum, the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, the Brooklyn Museum of Art, and the Los Angeles County Museum of Art.
