CLARENCE COLES PHILLIPS (1880-1927). LIGHT CONSUMES COAL. Circa 1918. 28x20 inches, 71x52 cm. Edwards & Deutsch Litho Co. Chicago.

by Swann Auction Galleries

August 5, 2015, 10:30 AM EST

New York, NY, USA

Estimated Price: $2,000 - $3,000

Description: CLARENCE COLES PHILLIPS (1880-1927) LIGHT CONSUMES COAL. Circa 1918. 28x20 1/2 inches, 71x52 cm. Edwards & Deutsch Litho Co. Chicago. Condtiion B+: losses in left corners; water staining in image and text; tears at edges; creases in margins and image. Paper. In what is perhaps the most "artistic" of the American World War I posters, Phillips unites the bold, direct elements of German object posters by artists such as Lucien Bernhard with the intricate swirls and patterns of American Art Nouveau in the style of William Bradley. Interestingly, while it may echo the work of European artists (specifically a 1907 image by Peter Behrens featuring a light bulb), the poster represents a drastic divergence from Phillips' usual style. He was nationally known for his "fadeaway girls," which graced the covers of LIFE magazine from 1908 onward. These images featured attractive young women whose clothing was the same color as the background, forcing the viewers to complete the image with their imagination. Rawls p. 20, Modern American 28, Darracott p. 36, Theofiles 79.

DESIGNER UNKNOWN. VICTORY FOR THE AMERICAN WAY. 1942. 27x20 inches, 68x50 cm. Kelly-Read & Co, Rochester.

by Swann Auction Galleries

August 5, 2015, 10:30 AM EST

New York, NY, USA

Estimated Price: $800 - $1,200

Description: DESIGNER UNKNOWN VICTORY FOR THE AMERICAN WAY. 1942. 27x20 inches, 68 1/2x50 3/4 cm. Kelly-Read & Co, Rochester. Condition B+: tears and abrasions in upper left corner; creases in margins and image. Paper. "A group of Rochester industrialists . . . were concerned about the mental sabotage of their workers by the infiltration of subversive propaganda from outside their plants . . . Out of this problem our company developed what is known as the 'Think American' program. It is now in use in over 5,000 of the largest industrial, business, financial, and educational organizations in nearly every state. 'Think American' consists of weekly illustrated messages, each of which points up vividly and intelligently a virtue or advantage of the American way of life. Plants display these posters near time clocks, in restrooms, and at other points of heaviest employee traffic. In these days when we are doing everything in our power to speed material preparedness and to prevent material sabotage, the need for mental preparedness and the prevention of mental sabotage cannot be overlooked. 'Think American,' we feel, is helping to do both of these jobs. Its messages are now reaching 7 million people weekly throughout the nation" (The Rotarian, September 1941, p. 3-4).

Frederick Accum A PRACTICAL TREATISE ON THE USE AND APPLICATION OF CHEMICAL TESTS 1818 Second Edition With Plates Antique Science

by National Book Auctions

August 2, 2015, 12:00 PM EST

Ithaca, NY, USA

Estimated Price: $150 - $300

Description: Title: A Practical Treatise on the Use and Application of Chemical Tests, with Concise Directions for Analysing Metallic Ores, Metals, Soils, Manures, and Mineral Waters. Illustrated by ExperimentsAuthor: Frederick Accum - Friedrich Christian Accum or Frederick Accum was a German chemist, whose most important achievements included advances in the field of gas lighting, efforts to keep processed foods free from dangerous additives, and the promotion of interest in the science of chemistry to the general populace. From 1793 to 1821 Accum lived in London. Following an apprenticeship as an apothecary, he opened his own commercial laboratory enterprise. His business manufactured and sold a variety of chemicals and laboratory equipment. Accum, himself, gave fee based public lectures in practical chemistry and collaborated with research efforts at numerous other institutes of scienceIntrigued by the work of Frederick Winsor, who had been championing the introduction of gas lighting in London, Accum too, became fascinated by this innovation. At the request of the Gas Light and Coke Company, he carried out many experiments in this novel field of inquiry. After a time of close working association with this company, he became a member of its board of directors in 1812. The company was charged with founding the first gasworks in London to supply gas lighting to both private and public areas. Accum was instrumental in the conception and design of this extremely successful gasworks.The majority of Accum's publications were written in English. They were executed in a style that made them quite accessible to the common man. Many scientific contributions were brought forth through his writings, which were influential in the popularization of chemistry during this era. In 1820, Accum published "Treatise on Adulteration of Food," in which he denounced the use of chemical additives to food. This ground breaking work marked the beginning of an awareness of need for food safety oversight. Accum was the first person to tackle the subject and to reach a wide audience through his activities. His book, controversial at the time, found a wide audience and sold well. However, it threatened established practices within the food processing industry, earning him many enemies among the London food manufactures. Accum left England after a lawsuit was brought against him. He lived out the rest of his life as a teacher at an industrial institution in Berlin.

O/C Still Life w/Artist's Brushes, Dobrinsky, '48

by Louis J. Dianni, LLC

August 8, 2015, 12:00 PM EST

Garrison, NY, USA

Estimated Price: $300 - $600

Description: Category: Paintings Description: This still life depicts the artist's work station with a sculpted bust, the artist's paint and brushes, and an oil lantern off to the left side of the desk. History:Dobrinsky lived in Kiev for six years. He began sculpting terracotta figures, and enrolled in Sabatovski art school. He worked as a storekeeper in a tin can factory during this period. In 1912, he won a prize for his sculpture which allowed him to move to Paris where he lived until his death in 1973. Upon his arrival in France, he became friends with the sculptor Marec Szwarc and the painter Chaim Soutine who helped him settle down in Paris and shared their studio with him. Dobrinsky abandoned sculpture in favor of painting a year after his arrival, as a result of ill health. His first painting was shown at the Salon d'Automne a few months later. In 1914, he joined the French Foreign Legion, but he was soon released on medical discharge. He then returned to Paris and attended the Colarossi Academy, where he met Vera Kremer (her father, Arkadi Kremer, was the founder of the Bund, the Jewish socialist party in Eastern Europe). The two got married in 1926. In 1934, he moved to a larger studio in Montparnasse, and in the next few years he made his major breakthrough in the art scene. These were happy days for the young couple, full of creativity. But Second World War put an end to this harmony. In the first two years of the German occupation, Dobrinsky and his family stayed in Paris, but in 1942, in order to escape deportation, they fled to a small village Dordogne. In 1944, after the liberation, Dobrinsky returned to Paris to find that the sculptures he had left behind were destroyed. In 1950, he was invited by Serge and Rachel Pludermacher (the founders of an orphan home) to paint the portraits of the children in their institute. In the course of two years, Dobrinsky worked on about forty portraits of young boys and girls. Dobrinsky used to say: “I don’t wish to be successful, I just wish to understand the mystery of creation”. Those who knew Dobrinsky say that there was something almost religious in his act of painting: very intimate and somewhat melancholic. Even though he had a heart condition during his last years, he had never stopped painting, and always in the same manner. When he died at the age of 81, he was working on a still life painting. Today he is remembered for his paintings rather than his sculptures.

Black Skunk Venetian Trade Beads White and Red Spotted

by Africa Direct

August 25, 2015, 1:00 AM MST

Denver, CO, USA

Estimated Price: $350 - $450

Description: Additional information: The term "Trade Beads" typically applies to beads made predominately in Venice and Bohemia and other European countries from the late 1400s through to the early 1900s and traded in Africa and the Americas. Many of these beads have been attributed to being made in Germany, France and the Netherlands as well.The heyday of this "trade" period was from the mid 1800s through the early 1900s when millions of these beads were produced and traded in Africa. The Venetians dominated this market and produced the majority of the beads sold during this time. The J.F. Sick and Co, based in Germany and Holland was one of the largest bead brokers/importers during this period. Moses Lewin Levin was a bead importer/exporter who operated out of London from 1830 to 1913. You can see 4 of the Levin trade bead sample cards from 1865 in The History of Beads (Dubin)The popularity of these beads was revived in the late 1960s when they began to be exported from Africa into the United States and Europe. The term "Trade Beads" became very popular during this time period and is still used for the same bead reference today. The millefiori beads were also called "Love Beads" and used in necklaces with peace symbols during the Hippie days.As the popularity and availability of these old beads grew they started getting "named". We started hearing terms like "Russian Blues", "Dutch Donuts", "King Beads". Although some of these folklore names are totally meaningless...ie...."Lewis and Clarke" beads, they do describe a specific type of bead.And today these beads are more popular and collectable than ever. Thousands of these beads are in private collections around the world. The African Traders are having to go deeper and deeper into Africa to find more of these beads and many styles which were readily available just 5 years ago are no longer seen today.To learn more about "trade beads" please read, The History of Beads (Dubin), Collectable Beads(Liu), Ornaments From the Past: Bead Studies After Beck (Bead Study Trust), The Bead Is Constant (Wilson), Arizona Highways (July1971), Africa Adorned (Fisher) and the John and Ruth Picard series of books; Volume III - Fancy Beads from the West African Trade, Volume IV - White Hearts, Feather and Eye Beads from the West African Trade, VolumeV - Russian Blues, Faceted and Fancy Beads from the West African Trade, Volume VI - Millefiori Beads from the West African Trade and Volume VII - Chevron and Nueva Cadiz Beads.There are exceptional museum collections of trade beads at the Museum of Mankind in London, the Pitt River Museum in Oxford, the Royal Museum of Central Africa in Belgium, the Murano Museum of Glass in Italy, the Tropical Royal Institute of Amsterdam, and the Picard Trade Bead Museum in California, US to name a few. One of the most intriguing aspects to these beads is how they have survived a hundred or more years of wear and the travel through at least three continents. Another mystery is who wore them before us who will have them next.......after us. Recommended Reading: COLLECTABLE BEADS (Liu)

Condition Report: Fair. Decoration has corroded from many of the skunk beads. Some of our beads have traveled at least three continents, and have graced numerous owners. Small chips, corrosion, and pitting are a normal part of their patina attesting to their age and extensive use. Loss of trail decoration to many beads, pitting.

25 Venetian Trade Beads Green Bicones African Loose

by Africa Direct

August 25, 2015, 1:00 AM MST

Denver, CO, USA

Estimated Price: $450 - $500

Description: Additional information: The term "Trade Beads" typically applies to beads made predominately in Venice and Bohemia and other European countries from the late 1400s through to the early 1900s and traded in Africa and the Americas. Many of these beads have been attributed to being made in Germany, France and the Netherlands as well. The heyday of this "trade" period was from the mid 1800s through the early 1900s when millions of these beads were produced and traded in Africa. The Venetians dominated this market and produced the majority of the beads sold during this time. The J.F. Sick and Co, based in Germany and Holland was one of the largest bead brokers/importers during this period. Moses Lewin Levin was a bead importer/exporter who operated out of London from 1830 to 1913. You can see 4 of the Levin trade bead sample cards from 1865 in The History of Beads (Dubin) The popularity of these beads was revived in the late 1960s when they began to be exported from Africa into the United States and Europe. The term "Trade Beads" became very popular during this time period and is still used for the same bead reference today. The millefiori beads were also called "Love Beads" and used in necklaces with peace symbols during the Hippie days. As the popularity and availability of these old beads grew they started getting "named". We started hearing terms like "Russian Blues", "Dutch Donuts", "King Beads". Although some of these folklore names are totally meaningless...ie...."Lewis and Clarke" beads, they do describe a specific type of bead. And today these beads are more popular and collectable than ever. Thousands of these beads are in private collections around the world. The African Traders are having to go deeper and deeper into Africa to find more of these beads and many styles which were readily available just 5 years ago are no longer seen today. To learn more about "trade beads" please read, The History of Beads (Dubin), Collectable Beads(Liu), Ornaments From the Past: Bead Studies After Beck (Bead Study Trust), The Bead Is Constant (Wilson), Arizona Highways (July1971), Africa Adorned (Fisher) and the John and Ruth Picard series of books; Volume III - Fancy Beads from the West African Trade, Volume IV - White Hearts, Feather and Eye Beads from the West African Trade, VolumeV - Russian Blues, Faceted and Fancy Beads from the West African Trade, Volume VI - Millefiori Beads from the West African Trade and Volume VII - Chevron and Nueva Cadiz Beads. There are exceptional museum collections of trade beads at the Museum of Mankind in London, the Pitt River Museum in Oxford, the Royal Museum of Central Africa in Belgium, the Murano Museum of Glass in Italy, the Tropical Royal Institute of Amsterdam, and the Picard Trade Bead Museum in California, US to name a few. One of the most intriguing aspects to these beads is how they have survived a hundred or more years of wear and the travel through at least three continents. Another mystery is who wore them before us who will have them next.......after us. Recommended Reading: HISTORY OF BEADS (Dubin)

Shona Stone MERMAID S. Mubaiwa First Generation Africa

by Africa Direct

August 25, 2015, 1:00 AM MST

Denver, CO, USA

Estimated Price: $6,500 - $7,900

Description: Shona Stone Scutpture '“Mermaid Spirit—Njuzu" S. Mubaiwa Provenance: Sandra Kerno Collection  Additional Information: Signed by S. Mubaiwa (1960- ) known as "life", late First Generation Zimbabwe stone sculptor. Until the middle of the 20th century, with the notable exception of the famous birds carved in steatite, there was very little sculpture of any kind in Zimbabwe. It was not until the 1950s that the stone sculpture movement was born, a movement which would change the face of contemporary African art. In 1957, Frank McEwen, an Englishman, and a teacher, collector and exhibitor of modern art, was appointed Director of the National Gallery of Rhodesia, in Salisbury (now Harare). Soon after taking the position, McEwen began to make connections with talented local artists whom he supported and mentored. He encouraged them to find creative inspiration in their traditional religions and spirituality. In addition to what was taking place at the National Gallery, a workshop was created in Vukutu in Nyanga district, headed by Joram Mariga, an agricultural engineer turned sculptor. Mariga was the uncle of John and Bernard Takawira, and he taught both his nephews and many other young men who would become the famous First Generation of Zimbabwe Stone culptors. S. Mubaiwa belongs to the late First Generation or to the Second Generation. Mubaiwa was born in 1960 in the Nyanga Mountains of Zimbabwe, bordering Mozambique. He attributes most of his spiritual inspiration to his mountain homeland. He began sculpting in 1982 under the guidance of Luke and Frances Mugavazi and Brighton Sango. He especially enjoys carving tall ancestor spirits with tranquil eyes and restful faces. His works have been shown in New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Chicago, Houston, Dallas, Pasadena, Beverly Hills, San Diego, Tokyo and London.   Mubaiwa is still sculpting in Guruve under the "taken" name of "Life."  The Mermaid, a beautiful half-woman half-fish, is also known in Africa as "Mami Wata," the spirit of water, and is a very famous subject in the sculpture of Zimbabwe and other African countries.
