Vintage WWII Era Vincent Zito Caricature of Benito Mussolini

Lot 244: Vintage WWII Era Vincent Zito Caricature of Benito Mussolini

by Piedmont

May 2, 2015, 11:00 AM EST

Philadelphia, PA, USA

Description: Zito (1900-1966) was a talented artist most famous for his caricatures of the celebrities he encountered throughout his life in both Europe and America, primarily working in Paris and Palm Beach. Original sketchbook used by famed caricaturist Vincenzo Maria Zito during the 1930s and 40s while in Paris, measuring approximately 8 x 10.5, containing over 80 caricatures of celebrities and notables, many of them signed by the subject. Benito Amilcare Andrea Mussolini 29 July 1883 - 28 April 1945) was an Italian politician, journalist, and leader of the National Fascist Party, ruling the country as Prime Minister from 1922 until his ousting in 1943. He ruled constitutionally until 1925, when he dropped all pretense of democracy and set up a legal dictatorship. Known as Il Duce ("the leader"), Mussolini was one of the key figures in the creation of fascism. After destroying all political opposition through his secret police and outlawing labor strikes, Mussolini and his fascist followers consolidated their power through a series of laws that transformed the nation into a one-party dictatorship. Within five years he had established dictatorial authority by both legal and extraordinary means, aspiring to create a totalitarian state. Mussolini remained in power until he was deposed by King Victor Emmanuel III in 1943. A few months later, he became the leader of the Italian Social Republic, a German client regime in northern Italy; he held this post until his death in 1945. The inside cover, and other pages, of the sketch book which contains Zito's information has been imaged to this listing. HOWEVER, THESE PAGES ARE NOT INCLUDED IN THIS LISTING WITH THE CARICATURE.

by Auctionata US

April 29, 2015, 12:00 PM EST

New York, NY, USA

Estimated Price: $3,200 - $4,000

Description: Digital gelatin silver printUSA, 1955, printed laterFrank Worth (1923-2000) - American celebrity photographer'Elizabeth Taylor Classic Portrait on Set of "Giant"'Numbered in ink lower left '22/48'With artist's estate blind stamp lower rightImage dimensions: 35 x 28 in. (88.9 x 71.1 cm.)Sheet dimensions: 40 x 30 in. (101.6 x 76.2 cm.)Very good condition Playing socialite Leslie Lynnton in the 1956 film "Giant," Elizabeth Taylor is captured here striking a coy pose for photographer Frank Worth between takes. Worth was given behind-the-scenes access on the set through his friendship with Taylor's co-star James Dean. Known for her otherworldly glamor and beauty, Elizabeth Taylor won two Academy Awards during her career and was honored with a Life Achievement Award from the American Film Institute, who named her on their list of "Greatest American Screen Legends." Executed in 1955 and printed later, this gelatin silver print is numbered twenty-two from an edition of forty-eight. With the artist's estate blind stamp, the sheet measures 40 x 30 inches. In overall good condition. Frank Worth (American, 1923-2000)American photographer Frank Worth was renowned for his intimate candid portraits of Hollywood actors and actresses. In an era when most stars limited themselves to carefully posed portraits, Worth's black and white images provided unique images of celebrities. Born in New York City, Worth moved to Hollywood in 1940, quickly becoming close friends of many top stars including Rita Hayworth, James Dean, Marilyn Monroe, Frank Sinatra, and others. These friendships allowed him access to capture unposed moments on the set of films. Many of his photographs were kept private and not seen until after his death.

Description: Gelatin silver printUSA, 1956Elliott Erwitt (b. 1928) - French/American photographerSigned in ink lower right 'Elliott Erwitt'Signed, inscribed and dated in pencil verso 'Elliott Erwitt / New York City / 1956'Image dimensions: 15 ¼ x 22 ½ in.

The present lot, with dramatic lighting and central composition of the figure, depicts a more intimate side of actress and sex-symbol Marilyn Monroe than what was commonly shown in the media. Known for her ability to play to the camera, Monroe is shown here in a bathrobe, coolly resting her fingertips on her exposed neck. Executed in 1956, this gelatin silver print is signed, inscribed and dated. The sheet measures 20 x 24 inches. Excellent original condition. Elliott Erwitt (French/American, b. 1928)Born in France to Russian parents, Elliott Erwitt immigrated to the United States in 1939. On his travels prior to his military service, Erwitt met Edward Steichen, Robert Capa and Roy Stryker who would become his mentors. After leaving the military, Erwitt was invited to join Magnum Photos as a member by Capa; Erwitt would go on to be President of the agency for three terms. His works were featured in numerous publications, and he is best known for his black and white candid shots of the absurd within the everyday. Erwitt's works have been the subject of numerous solo exhibitions worldwide, including the Museum of Modern Art, New York; the Chicago Art Institute; Palais de Tokyo, Paris; the Reina Sofia Museum, Madrid; the Barbican, London; and the Kunsthaus, Zurich, among many others.

JAMES A. M. WHISTLER The Pierrot.

Lot 312: JAMES A. M. WHISTLER The Pierrot.

by Swann Auction Galleries

April 29, 2015, 10:30 AM EST

New York, NY, USA

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

Description: JAMES A. M. WHISTLER The Pierrot. Etching and drypoint printed in dark brown, 1889. 231x162 mm; 9 1/8x6 1/2 inches. MacDonald's sixth state (of 8), with the butterfly in the plate upper left but before the additional shading below the windows to the left of the boy in the doorway. Signed with the butterfly and inscribed "imp" in pencil on the tab, lower left. A brilliant, richly-inked impression of this extremely scarce etching, with selective wiping to reveal the dark reflections in the water, similar to the sixth state impression of this subject in the Freer Gallery of Art, Smithsonian Institution, Washington, D. C. MacDonald notes a total of approximately 33 impressions and cites 29 of these in public instituitions. We have found only 7 other impressions at auction in the past 30 years. The Pierrot dates from Whistler's stay in Amsterdam, with his wife Beatrix, from August to Otcober 1889. Nearly all the impressions from the plate were printed in London in February 1890. The subject derives from the tragi-comic mime character in the Italian commedia dell'arte popularized durign the 17th century. According to MacDonald, "There was a revival of interest in the character of Pierrot in the 1880s. Adolphe Willette (1857-1926) illustrated sombre narratives featuring Pierrot in Le Chat Noir from 1882-1885 and in 1888 established a magazine, The Pierrot, satirising Montmartre life and cabarets. The journal, which appeared between 1888 and 1889, was certainly known to Whistler and may have been the immediate inspiration for the subject. The character was also appropriated by Symbolist poets, and Whistler, having recently met Stéphane Mallarmé (1842-1898), and being associated both with the French and Belgian Symbolists, may have been responding to their obsession with Pierrot as a tragic, enigmatic figure, distant from reality."

by Piedmont

May 2, 2015, 11:00 AM EST

Philadelphia, PA, USA

Description: Zito (1900-1966) was a talented artist most famous for his caricatures of the celebrities he encountered throughout his life in both Europe and America, primarily working in Paris and Palm Beach. Original sketchbook used by famed caricaturist Vincenzo Maria Zito during the 1930s and 40s while in Paris, measuring approximately 8 x 10.5, containing over 80 caricatures of celebrities and notables, many of them signed by the subject. Jean Harlow (born Harlean Harlow Carpenter; March 3, 1911 - June 7, 1937) was an American film actress and sex symbol of the 1930s. After being signed by director Howard Hughes, Harlow's first major appearance was in Hell's Angels (1930), followed by a series of critically unsuccessful films, before signing with Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer in 1932. Harlow became a leading lady for MGM, starring in a string of hit films including Red Dust (1932), Dinner at Eight (1933), Reckless (1935) and Suzy (1936). Among her frequent co-stars were William Powell, Spencer Tracy and, in six films, Clark Gable. Harlow's popularity rivaled and soon surpassed that of her MGM colleagues Joan Crawford and Norma Shearer. She had become one of the biggest movie stars in the world by the late 1930s, often nicknamed the "Blond Bombshell" and the "Platinum Blonde", and popular for her "Laughing Vamp" movie persona. She died during the filming of Saratoga in 1937 at the age of 26. The film was completed using doubles and released a little over a month after Harlow's death. The American Film Institute ranked her as the 22nd greatest female star in Hollywood history. The inside cover, and other pages, of the sketch book which contains Zito's information has been imaged to this listing. HOWEVER, THESE PAGES ARE NOT INCLUDED IN THIS LISTING WITH THE CARICATURE.

4 genuine fossil trilobites, 6-8 in., 520-250 million years

Lot 418: 4 genuine fossil trilobites, 6-8 in., 520-250 million years

by Eternity Gallery

April 28, 2015, 2:00 PM EST

Tampa, FL, USA

Estimated Price: $1,500 - $3,000

Description: 4 genuine fossil trilobites, 6-8 inches, in cement matrix 520-250 million years. Size of the cement matrix: 16 in. x 16 in. Weight of the display matrix: 15 lb. = 6.75 kg. Length of trilobites: 8 in, 7 in., 7 in. and 6 in. History: Trilobites (/tralbat/, /trlbat/; meaning "three lobes") are a well-known fossil group of extinct marine arthropods that form the class Trilobita. Trilobites form one of the earliest known groups of arthropods. The first appearance of trilobites in the fossil record defines the base of the Atdabanian stage of the Early Cambrian period (521 million years ago), and they flourished throughout the lower Paleozoic era before beginning a drawn-out decline to extinction when, during the Devonian, all trilobite orders except Proetida died out. Trilobites finally disappeared in the mass extinction at the end of the Permian about 250 million years ago. The trilobites were among the most successful of all early animals, roaming the oceans for over 270 million years.[2] When trilobites first appeared in the fossil record they were already highly diverse and geographically dispersed. Because trilobites had wide diversity and an easily fossilized exoskeleton an extensive fossil record was left behind, with some 17,000 known species spanning Paleozoic time. The study of these fossils has facilitated important contributions to biostratigraphy, paleontology, evolutionary biology and plate tectonics. Trilobites are often placed within the arthropod subphylum Schizoramia within the superclass Arachnomorpha (equivalent to the Arachnata), although several alternative taxonomies are found in the literature. Trilobites had many life styles; some moved over the sea-bed as predators, scavengers or filter feeders and some swam, feeding on plankton. Most life styles expected of modern marine arthropods are seen in trilobites, with the possible exception of parasitism (where there are still scientific debates).[4] Some trilobites Condition Well preserved and skillfully embedded into cement matrix Low Estimate: 1500; High Estimate: 3000; Original: Yes;

by Cheffins

April 30, 2015, 11:00 AM GMT

Cambridge, United Kingdom

Estimated Price: £300 - £500

Description: § James Havard Thomas (British, 1854–1921) Side profile of a young woman with a plait signed with initials lower right "JHT" a bronze relief, in original black frame h:16 w: 10 cm One of James Havard Thomas's most well known works, "Lycides', is on display at Tate Britain. The National Portrait Gallery also holds a pencil drawing completed by Havard Thomas in 1913 of the poet Rupert Brooke. Havard Thomas's beautiful marble relief of Rupert Brooke is in Rugby School Chapel, and is used as the frontispiece often to his books of poems. James Havard Thomas (1854 -1921) was a Bristol born sculptor, who studied at the Bristol School of Art and went on to further study at the Royal College of Arts having won a scholarship. He later studied in Paris at the Ecole des Beaux Arts. This Classical study helped establish Thomas as a respected artist and he exhibited at the Royal Academy from 1872 onwards, his first solo exhibition being in 1902 at the Carfax Gallery, London. Thomas's work was much influenced by his time (1889 -1906) in Italy near Naples, where he drew inspiration from the popular Tanagra Statuettes. He would later go on to teach at the Slade, becoming Professor of Sculpture in 1915. Today his work continues to be esteemed, with paintings exhibited in several public collections including Sheffield City Art Galleries. Thomas was born in Bristol and studied at the Bristol School of Art, the R.C.A., as a National Scholar and the École des Beaux-Arts, Paris, under Pierre-Jules Cavelier (French, 1814 -1894). He went on to become Professor of Sculpture at the Slade School in 1915. Havard Thomas is known for his beautiful reliefs to be found in illustrations in almost every edition of his poems and in his biographies.

Charles Sims (British, 1873-1928) The Wood beyond the World, 1913 signed lower right

Lot 258: Charles Sims (British, 1873-1928) The Wood beyond the World, 1913 signed lower right "Sims"

by Cheffins

April 30, 2015, 11:00 AM GMT

Cambridge, United Kingdom

Estimated Price: £3,000 - £4,000

Description: Charles Sims (British, 1873-1928) The Wood beyond the World, 1913 signed lower right "Sims" oil on canvas h:69 w: 101 cm Provenance: Private Collection, Cambridge. Charles Sims enrolled at the South Kensington College of Art in 1890 before moving to Paris for two years at the Académie Julian. Needing a bursary to support himself, he moved back to London and enrolled at the Royal Academy Schools in 1893. From 1896, he developed an increasingly successful career, first exhibiting "The Vine" at the Royal Academy in 1896, and selling another painting "Childhood" to the Musée du Luxembourg. An expert at portraying sunlit landscapes, he specialised in society portraits and neo-classical fantasies, typically idealised scenes of women, children or fairies in outdoor settings. In 1906 a one-man show at the Leicester Galleries brought him critical and financial success, allowing him to relocate to rural Fittleworth. In 1910 he was elected a Fellow of the Royal Watercolour Society, and in 1915 to the Royal Academy. "The Wood beyond the World" represents an idyllic scene celebrating springtide and the optimism of life. It is reminiscent of both "Primavera" by Botticelli and the work of Puvis de Chavannes. The children portray the chastity of youth, whilst alluding to pagan traditions and symbolism. The group of three female figures are the three Graces from classical mythology, whilst the central woman holding a child portrays the Madonna. A version of the present painting is in the collection of Tate Modern.

Condition Report: Under UV there does appear to be large areas of retouching, notably in the sky. On the surface the retouching is translucent and has been applied up and around the trees and other features of the scene. Some of the figures also have retouching in their draperies, reinforcing these areas. Retouching has been applied around the signature at the bottom. The painting is unlined, there are signs of mould growth visible on the reverse. It is not immediately obvious why the retouching has been applied in such a wholesale manner. Some areas of original paint show signs of wear and abrasion, the tops of the canvas weave are exposed in these areas, but the translucent retouching does not completely cover areas of abrasion. It may have been applied to even out the appearance of the work. It would be very interesting to compare this to the version in Tate in terms of painting technique and condition.

by Heritage Auctions

May 2, 2015, 2:00 PM CST

Dallas, TX, USA

Estimated Price: $3,000 - $5,000

Description: WALTER KING STONE (American, 1875-1949) Rocky Cliffs over Valley Oil on canvas 24-1/2 x 29-1/2 inches (62.2 x 74.9 cm) Signed lower right: Walter King Stone PROVENANCE: Private collection, Virginia; Estate of the above. From the early 1900s until 1920, when he began a twenty-three-year tenure as Professor of Fine Arts at Cornell University, Walter Stone King had an active career as an illustrator and writer. He won widespread recognition for his nature illustrations, which appeared in books as well as the major national magazines including Scribner's, Century, Colliers', Outing Country Life in America, St. Nicholas, and The Country Gentleman. His favorite medium as an illustrator was flat watercolor wash combined with charcoal drawing. During his years at Cornell, however, his work went through a shift as he began painting in oil, exploiting not only the vivid color the medium afforded but also the varieties of texture it was able to achieve. In this dramatic view of the plains below a towering rocky cliff, Stone seems to have adopted the vantage point of one of the birds of prey he often illustrated. Like Maxfield Parrish and other successful illustrators who were sophisticated colorists, Stone rendered the shadows in this scene with a searing blue, which creates a forceful optical dazzle against the golden cliffs. Stone was a friend and favorite painter of the poet Robert Frost.

Lot 267: A DIDACTIC SPIROMETER, CIRCA 1880 nickel-plated overall and designed a

by Charles Miller Ltd

May 12, 2015, 11:00 AM GMT

London, United Kingdom

Estimated Price: £800 - £1,200

Description: A DIDACTIC SPIROMETER, CIRCA 1880 nickel-plated overall and designed as a single-cylinder mill engine with drive wheel, governor, oscillating arm and eccentric crank with crossed string drive to dial stamped 10-200 cubic inches supported from four-pillar frame, the whole mounted on a shaped ebonised base with air inlet -- 29¾ x 15½ x 10in. (75.5 x 39.5 x 25.5cm.); together with a contemporary framed broadside extolling the virtues of correct breathing without belts or corsets, as demonstrated by the spirometer, with substantial quotes from Lennox Browne (2) Lennox Browne (1841-1902) a specialist throat practitioner, co-founded the Central London Throat and Ear Hospital (now the Royal National Ear, Nose and Throat Hospital) in 1874. He enjoyed considerable success and gave lectures on correct breathing, speech and singing, and co-wrote Voice, Song and Speech with voice trainer Emil Behnke in 1883. Articles in The Times from 1883 and 1894 refer to Browne using a spirometer in his lectures and, whilst unproven, this example with its large visible dial, polished finish and animated engine would be ideal for such purposes. ++In good working order at the time of writing; the broadside yellowed with age and old marks and abrasions.

19th century, Irish Merchant Navy Green Ensign.

Lot 85: 19th century, Irish Merchant Navy Green Ensign.

by Whyte's

May 9, 2015, 1:00 PM GMT

Dublin, Ireland

Estimated Price: €300 - €500

Description: 19th century, Irish Merchant Navy Green Ensign. A scarce unofficial flag of Irish owned shipping. h:108  w:56 in. Other Notes: There is evidence that the Green Ensign, although never officially approved, had been used by some Irish ships since the 17th Century. The early versions use the emblem of the Irish Revenue – a 'Mermaid' Harp surmounted by a crown in gold. However the background should have been St. Patrick's Blue rather than emerald green according to the authorities. In the 1830s The Western Yacht Club used the Green Ensign for a while. In some cases Irish vessels had this flag confiscated by authorities in harbours in Britain, Ireland and the West Indies according to some records. In 1872, the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland, in reply to the Admiralty, declared the use of the Green Ensign to be incorrect, and in support attached a well researched paper by Sir J. Barnard-Burke, Ulster King of Arms, supporting the choice of blue as the National Colour of Ireland. Thus the Harp is shown as gold on blue in the Royal Standard, and indeed since the 1930s the same is the Standard of the President of the Republic of Ireland.
