Lot 28: "Desmoines House" print, 277/300 by Richard Schmid

by WorldCrest Auctions, Inc.

November 29, 2014, 10:00 AM CST

Arlingon, TX, USA

Estimated Price: $500 - $750

Description: The oil painting, "DESMOINES HOUSE" was painted by Richard Schmid, the Gilcrease Museum Rendezvous painter for 1986. This limited edition print of "Desmoines House" was issued in May, 1986 to commemorate the 1986 Gilcrease Rendezvous exhibition of works by Richard Schmid. This is number 277/300 of the signed, limited edition print. 17" x 26" Richard Schmid was born in Chicago, Illinois in 1934. His earliest artistic influence came from his maternal grandfather, Julian Oates, an architectural sculptor. Richard's initial studies in landscape painting, figure drawing, and anatomy began at the age of twelve and continued into classical techniques under William H. Mosby at the American Academy of Art in Chicago. Mosby, a graduate of the Belgian Royal Academy in Brussels and the Superior Institute in Antwerp, was a technical expert on European and American realism. Studies with him involved working exclusively from life, at first using the conceptual and technical methods of the Flemish, Dutch, and Spanish masters, and eventually all of the late 19th century European and American painters. The emphasis in each period was on Alla Prima, or Direct Painting systems of the various periods. However, Richard's individual style and the content of his work developed along personal lines. In 2005, Richard Schmid was presented with the Gold Medal award from the Portrait Society of America during their annual portrait conference held in Washington DC. Richard is also the recipient of an honorary doctorate degree from the Lyme Academy College of Fine Arts in Old Lyme, CT. At ceremonies hosted by the American Society of Portrait Artists in the Grace Rainey Rogers Auditorium in the Metropolitan Museum of Art in 2000, Richard Schmid received the John Singer Sargent Medal for Lifetime Achievement. Richard Ormond, Sargent's grandnephew, presented the award. In May 2005, Schmid received the prestigious gold-medal award from The Portrait Society of America at their annual conference held in Washington, DC.

Spells of Russia, Worthing, The Public Art Gallery, 1920, No. 76, listed. N. Jarintzov, Nicholas K. Roerich, London, The Studio, 1920, p. 8, illustrated. C. Brinton, The Nicholas Roerich Exhibition Catalogue, 1920-1921-1922, New York, Redfield-Kendrick-Odell Company, Inc., 1921, No. 9, listed, pl. [2], illustrated. F. Grant et al, Roerich. Himalaya. A Monograph, New York, Brentano's Publishers, 1926, p. 197, listed. Roerich Museum Catalogue, New York, 1930, No. 9, p. 11, listed (with incorrect year 1918). The Treasure displays Roerich's fascination with legends of ancient wanderers who "remembered to call of other remote mountains, and again strove onward, counting nor the days, nor years, no centuries of their wandering". The treasures they left behind, which were cultural and spiritual rather than material, were not simply tangible relics but symbols whose very essence rested in their mysterious and unreachable quality. The secrets within them had to be kept hidden in order to be preserved, especially in desperate times. Roerich himself was forced to flee to Finland in 1917 at the outbreak of the revolution, and the tragedy and dissolution of his surroundings inspired a nostalgic appreciation of the mystical past. The Treasure reflects typical Karelian scenery, and depicts a more polished culmination of the hundreds of rough sketches the artist produced in the earlier couple of years. The landscape's bold outlines and relatively simple composition reflect a primitiveness that is conceptual and carefully constructed rather than spontaneous, as if every inch of paint is as sacred as the ancient traditions he admired. We are grateful to Gvido Trepša, Senior Researcher at the Nicholas Roerich Museum, New York, for catalogue information. Nikolai Roerich visited Karelia on many occasions: he was captivated by its epic past - the runes of the Kalevala, its ancient heroes and legends. For this reason, when chronic pulmonary illness forced the artist in 1916 to seek a change of climate, he chose North Ladoga. Roerich and his family settled in Finland, which won her independence after the revolution, to see out the cataclysmic events of that historic time. In the summer of 1918, the Roerichs moved from Serdobol (now Sortavala) to the island of Tulolansaari - called simply Tulon by the local people. This is one of the largest islands in Lake Ladoga, between 8 and 9 kilometres to the East of Sortavala. In the central and eastern parts of the island are massifs of the Serdobol granite that was used in the building of St Petersburg. The wild landscape of the North with its vast lakes delighted Roerich and inspired him. In this region the artist conceived and created around two hundred oil paintings. These included Holy Island, the series entitled Karelia, Cloud Messenger, Missive to Theodore Tyron, Ecstasy, Sons of Heaven, and the Heroica series that presaged the path Roerich's life would follow later, and his spiritual mission. His picture entitled The Treasure was also painted using the studies and numerous sketches he made while living at Tulon. Roerich's interest in the North was inseparable from his interest in Russia's past - her history. It was also at this time that the artist began to study the ancient local churches, laying emphasis on the uniqueness of Finnish mural painting; the fantastic decoration, birds, and wild beasts reminded him of Nordic rock carvings -"there is a sense in them of the time when Christianity laid its hands on a hallowed shamanism". There was an attraction for Roerich in digging down to the very ancient, deep-lying strata from the time when the spirit of the North was being forged, when people and Nature lived together. His love for the old tales and legends is also reflected in the offered painting The Treasure, whose meaning is in the eternal quest for an ancient magical Knowledge long since associated with the lands of the North. Legend speaks of folk from the North who went away to live below the earth, carrying with them the mystic knowledge of the creation of the world, whose scattered traces - the greatest spiritual treasures that there are - the earth still bears. From time immemorial the Russian people's dream of a better life has fixed its gaze on the North. It is in the North, in the opinion of many Russian bibliophiles and visionaries, where that happy and blessed land lies which may be compared to an earthly paradise, and which has been preserved in folk memory under the name of Belovodye, the ideal land of Slav legend that is not an objective, but a spiritual reality, with an image that has garnered all the human wisdom of a thousand years. Roerich looked to the North to seek out the origins of the lore surrounding this enigmatic land. He made a serious study of the northern fables and legends, did academic research, and drew. As a result of his research, the idea emerged that an ancient spiritual tradition exists, forming a single unbroken chain that begins in the North and ends in the East, in Tibet and the Himalayas. In this chain, there is no sense in which the importance of Karelia to Roerich's spiritual and artistic quest is outshone by the Himalayas, and the pictures he created in the North are full of equally deep, mystical meaning.
