Print, Japanese Woodblock 'The Great Wave'

by Louis J. Dianni, LLC

August 8, 2015, 12:00 PM EST

Garrison, NY, USA

Estimated Price: $100 - $300

Description: Antique and Collectables Category: Japanese Description: This famous print depicts an enormous wave coming down over top of a pair of long boats with the top of a mountain visible between the swells. Material: Ink, Paper Maker/Artist: Hokusai Date: 19th C. Provenance: History: Hokusai had a long career, but he produced most of his important work after age 60. Great Wave or simply The Wave, is a woodblock print by the Japanese ukiyo-e artist Hokusai. It was published sometime between 1830 and 1833[1] in the late Edo period as the first print in Hokusai's series Thirty-six Views of Mount Fuji. It is Hokusai's most famous work, and one of the best recognized works of Japanese art in the world. It depicts an enormous wave threatening boats off the coast of the prefecture of Kanagawa. While sometimes assumed to be a tsunami, the wave is, as the picture's title suggests, more likely to be a large rogue wave or okinami ("wave of the open sea").[2] As in all the prints in the series, it depicts the area around Mount Fuji under particular conditions, and the mountain itself appears in the background. Copies of the print are in many Western collections, including the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City, the British Museum in London, the Art Institute of Chicago, LACMA in Los Angeles, the National Gallery of Victoria in Melbourne,[3] and in Claude Monet's house in Giverny, France, amongst many other collections. Bio:His most popular work is the ukiyo-e series Thirty-six Views of Mount Fuji, which was created between 1826 and 1833. It actually consists of 46 prints (10 of them added after initial publication). In addition, he is responsible for the 1834 One Hundred Views of Mount Fuji (???? Fugaku Hyakkei?), a work which "is generally considered the masterpiece among his landscape picture books." His ukiyo-e transformed the art form from a style of portraiture focused on the courtesans and actors popular during the Edo Period in Japan's cities into a much broader style of art that focused on landscapes, plants, and animals. A collection of woodblock Thirty-six Views of Mount Fuji prints, contained in the wellness spa of the Costa Concordia was lost during the collision of the ship on January 13, 2012. Both Hokusai’s choice of nom d'artiste and frequent depiction of Mt. Fuji stem from his religious beliefs. The name Hokusai (???) means "North Studio (room)," an abbreviation of Hokushinsai (????) or "North Star Studio." Hokusai was a member of the Nichiren sect of Buddhism, who see the North Star as associated with the deity Myoken (?????). Mount Fuji has traditionally been linked with eternal life. This belief can be traced to The Tale of the Bamboo Cutter, where a goddess deposits the elixir of life on the peak. As Henry Smith expounds, "Thus from an early time, Mt. Fuji was seen as the source of the secret of immortality, a tradition that was at the heart of Hokusai's own obsession with the mountain." The largest of Hokusai's works is the 15-volume collection Hokusai Manga (?????), a book crammed with nearly 4,000 sketches that was published in 1814. These sketches are often incorrectly considered the precedent to modern manga, as Hokusai's Manga is a collection of sketches (of animals, people, objects, etc.), different from the story-based comic-book style of modern manga. Dimensions: H 15.25 in W 20 in D 0.25 in Size of Artwork: 10.0" x 14.5" Weight: 2.8 pounds Condition: Slight darkening of the paper with a few pin sized holes in the paper at the corners.

CHARLIE CHAPLIN - A DOG'S LIFE ORIGINAL 1920'S R STILL.

by Simon Parr's Auctions Ltd

August 8, 2015, 2:00 PM BST

Wallsend, United Kingdom

Estimated Price: £60 - £80

Description: Film Description: A Dog's Life, the 1918 Charlie Chaplin silent screwball comedy (The one and only Charles Chaplin in his first million dollar picture His Signature. A First National Attraction) starring Charlie Chaplin (as the Tramp), Edna Purviance, Syd Chaplin, Henry Bergman, and Charles Reisner. Note that one of the lobby cards refers to the dog as Jack, but the IMDb lists him as being billed as scraps and that he is played by Mut. Note that Chaplin was so incredibly popular in 1918, that First National had to pay him a million dollars per movie to lure him away from his previous studio (which was a staggering amount of money in 1918)! Naturally, they wanted to get some advertising value out of their massive expenditure, so they advertised the movie as His First Million Dollar Comedy.

Condition Report: Very good.

Bowls, 5 Pieces, White and Blue, Mintons, 20th C.

by Louis J. Dianni, LLC

August 8, 2015, 12:00 PM EST

Garrison, NY, USA

Estimated Price: $50 - $150

Description: Antique and Collectables Category: Tableware Description: These five bowls are plainly glazed with vibrant blue flower patterns printed on the surfaces in varying degrees of complexity. Each bowl has six bunches of flowers along the rim and a single bouquet at the center. Material: Ironstone Maker/Artist: Mintons China Date: 20th C. Provenance: History: Early Mintons products were mostly standard domestic tableware in blue transfer printed or painted earthenware, including the ever popular Willow pattern. From c1798 production included bone china from his partner Joseph Poulson's near-by china pottery. China production ceased c1816 following Joseph Poulson's death in 1808, recommencing in a new pottery in 1824. On his death, Minton was succeeded by his son Herbert Minton (1793–1858) who developed new production techniques and took the business into new fields, notably including decorative encaustic tile making, through his association with leading architects and designers including Augustus Pugin and, it is said, Prince Albert. Minton entered into partnership with Michael Hollins in 1845 and formed the tile making firm of Minton, Hollins & Company, which was at the forefront of a large newly developing market as suppliers of durable decorative finishes for walls and floors in churches, public buildings, grand palaces and simple domestic houses. The firm exhibited widely at trade exhibitions throughout the world and examples of its exhibition displays are held at the Smithsonian Institution in Washington, D.C. where the company gained many prestigious contracts including tiled flooring for the United States Capitol. Hard white unglazed "statuary porcelain", later called Parian ware due to its resemblance to Parian marble, was first introduced by Spode in the 1840s. It was further developed by Minton who employed John Bell, Hiram Powers and other famous sculptors to produce figures for reproduction. In 1849 Minton engaged a young French ceramic artist Léon Arnoux as art director and he remained with the Minton Company until 1892. This and other enterprising appointments enabled the company greatly to widen its product ranges, one of the first innovations being the very colourful and highly successful Majolica ware launched at The Great Exhibition of 1851. The Franco-Prussian War of 1870 gave Arnoux the opportunity to recruit the modeller Marc-Louis Solon who had developed the technique of pâte-sur-pâte at Sèvres and brought it with him to Minton. In this process the design is built up in relief with layers of liquid slip, with each layer being allowed to dry before the next is applied. There was great demand for Solon's plaques and vases, featuring maidens and cherubs, and Minton assigned him apprentices to help the firm become the unrivaled leader in this field. Others introduced to Minton by Arnoux included the sculptor Albert-Ernest Carrier-Belleuse and the painter Antoine Boullemier. On his death Herbert Minton was succeeded by his equally dynamic nephew Colin Minton Campbell who took the company into a highly successful exploration of Chinese cloisonné enamels, Japanese lacquer and Turkish pottery. In 1870 Mintons opened an art pottery studio in Kensington, London directed by W.S. Coleman and encouraged both amateur and professional artists to become involved in pottery decoration and design. When the studio was destroyed by fire in 1875, it was not rebuilt. From the mid-1890s onwards, Mintons made major contributions to Art Nouveau ceramics with a fine range of slip-trailed majolica ware, many designed by Marc-Louis Solon's son Leon Solon and his colleague John Wadsworth. Leon Solon was hired by Mintons after his work was published in the hugely influential design magazine The Studio and he worked for the company from 1895–1905, including a brief stint as Art Director. Solon's early designs for Mintons were strongly influenced by the Viennese Secessionist art movement, founded by Gustav Klimt and others, and so became known as Secessionist ware. The Secessionist range covered both practical and ornamental wares including cheese dishes, plates, teapots, jugs and comports, vases and large jardinières. The shapes of ornamental vases included inverted trumpets, elongated cylinders and exaggerated bottle forms, although tableware shapes were conventional. Early Successionist patterns featured realistic renderings of natural motifs—flowers, birds and human figures—but under the combined influence of Solon and Wadsworth, these became increasingly exaggerated and stylised, with the characteristic convoluted plant forms and floral motifs reaching a peak of extravagance around the turn of the 20th century. The Minton factory in the centre of Stoke was rebuilt and modernised after the Second World War by the then managing director, J. E. Hartill, a great-great-great grandson of Thomas Minton. The tableware division was always the mainstay of Minton's fortunes and the post-1950 rationalisation of the British pottery industry took Mintons into a merger with Royal Doulton Tableware Ltd. By the 1980s Mintons was only producing a few different shapes but still employed highly skilled decorators. The factory, including office accommodation and a Minton Museum, was demolished as part of rationalisation within the Royal Doulton group. Royal Doulton was taken over in turn by the Waterford Wedgwood group in January 2005. The Victorian building which used to be the Minton Hollins tileworks is on a separate site from the former Minton pottery. It was threatened with demolition in the 1980s but was listed and has been preserved. Dimensions: H 1.75 in W 10 in D 10 in Size of Artwork: Weight: 5.7 pounds Condition: Slight dirt build up and mild rubbing to the bases. No noticed breakage or cracks.

Russian Iwan Garikow 1968, Oil canvas: Nude on River

by Eternity Gallery

July 29, 2015, 1:00 PM EST

Tampa, FL, USA

Estimated Price: $2,000 - $8,000

Description: Iwan Garikow 1968, Oil on canvas: Nude on the river. Artist: Iwan Garikow, Iwan Garikow was born in Russia in 1918; Moved to USA; Died in 1982, USA; Oil on canvas: Nude on the river, painted in 1968; unframed; Height of the stretcher: 36 inches = 3 feet = 90 cm Width of the stretcher: 30 3/8 inches = 76 cm It has to be said Garikow was one of the most important Russian artists of the 20th century as he was the last formally trained artist at Repin Academy in 1941. One Garikow's painting sold at a charity auction in Alabama for $10,000 in 2008 Iwan Garikow painted about 250 works in his lifetime, 200 are owned by the Garikow's collection and a further 25 in private collections, leaving only about 25 on the open market of which you could own this one. Please, visit a website for Garikow's collection in USA www.garikow.com Ivan Garikow: A Russian Artist's Unique Perspective Ivan Garikow, born in Belaya Glina, a small town in the Russian Empire, in 1918 spent the better portion of his addled twentieth-century life making paintings. Though Garikow's career spanned from his early teens in Russia to the end of his life in 1982 in Philadelphia, PA, his style always remained distinctly, traditionally Russian. At first glance one may dismiss the collection as amateurish or uneven, but when digested as a whole and viewed through the lens of the brand of Nationalism apparent in Garikow's biography, the true art historian's eye acknowledges a valuable and worthwhile collection. Garikow grew up in a small town in the Soviet Union while his family valued religion during the time in Russia when the modus operandi of Communism was just beginning. He had one brother and his family lived in virtual poverty, but they maintained a relatively peaceful family life during a politically tumultuous, transitional period in Russian history. His early exposure to rural and small town settings and the firsthand experience of peasant life surely influenced not only his choice of subject matter in his future paintings, but also his naive personal style. One sees the delightful combination of his childhood environment and the future study of great masters like Vincent van Gogh (notice the thick, dark outlines) in the painting #0103 Belaya Glina. In fact, the setting of Garikow's childhood home and the period of history in which he lived, with its limited outlets for community socializing and lack of technology - there were no McDonald's or Nintendo's, after all - probably gave the child Garikow a better opportunity to hone his interests in drawing and painting. Teachers noticed Garikow's inclinations and his artistic talent during his early primary school years, and eventually Garikow received his training as a painter at The Arts Academy, or what is formally known today as Ilya Repin St. Petersburg State Academic Institute of Fine Arts in St. Petersburg, Russia. The Academy, founded in 1757 by Ivan Shuvalov, the first Russian minister of the Arts, was later renamed after the artist Ilya Repin whose style embodied the teachings of The Academy. When he was 18 years old Garikow submitted his work to The Academy for consideration. After he received his acceptance, Garikow left his home for the school and matriculated at Repin Academy from 1937-41 under pretty dire circumstances. As recounted by Ivan's sister-in-law to biographer Steven M. Nesbit, Garikow often ate little or no food and he had to sneak back into the academy's classroom in order to sleep with a roof over his head. He slept on a classroom floor with six or eight other students most evenings. Although many students enrolled came from families who were wealthy, many were not. To learn and study what they loved, many Repin Academy students endured many hardships.

by National Book Auctions

August 2, 2015, 12:00 PM EST

Ithaca, NY, USA

Estimated Price: $200 - $350

Description: Title: Pepper & Salt, or Seasoning for Young FolkAuthor: Howard Pyle - Howard Pyle was an American illustrator and author, primarily of books for young people. A native of Wilmington, Delaware, he spent the last year of his life in Florence, Italy.In 1894 he began teaching illustration at the Drexel Institute of Art, Science and Industry (now Drexel University). After 1900, he founded his own school of art and illustration, named the Howard Pyle School of Illustration Art. The scholar Henry C. Pitz later used the term Brandywine School for the illustration artists and Wyeth family artists of the Brandywine region, several of whom had studied with Pyle. Some of his more notable students were N. C. Wyeth, Frank Schoonover, Elenore Abbott, Ethel Franklin Betts, Anna Whelan Betts, Harvey Dunn, Clyde O. DeLand, Philip R. Goodwin, Thornton Oakley, Violet Oakley, Ellen Bernard Thompson Pyle, Olive Rush, Allen Tupper True, Elizabeth Shippen Green, Arthur E. Becher, William James Aylward, and Jessie Willcox Smith. Pyle's home and studio in Wilmington, where he taught his students, is still standing and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.His 1883 classic publication "The Merry Adventures of Robin Hood" remains in print, and his other books, frequently with medieval European settings, include a four-volume set on King Arthur. He is also well known for his illustrations of pirates, and is credited with creating what has become the modern stereotype of pirate dress. He published his first novel, "Otto of the Silver Hand," in 1888. He also illustrated historical and adventure stories for periodicals such as Harper's Weekly and St. Nicholas Magazine. His novel "Men of Iron" was adapted as the movie "The Black Shield of Falworth" (1954).Pyle travelled to Florence, Italy in 1910 to study mural painting. He died there in 1911 of a sudden kidney infection (Bright's Disease).

Description: James C. Christensen - College Of Magical Knowledge Personal Commission™ - Hand Signed Image Size: 22"w X 20"h. Limited Edition Of: 152 - "credendo Vides": By Believing, One Sees "the College Of Magical Knowledge" Is The Most Recognized And Adored Setting In Christensen’s “land A Little Left Of Reality” And Was Featured In His Best-selling Book "the Voyage Of The Basset." “the Inscription Over The Entrance Reads 'scientia Est Potentia,'” Relates Christensen, “so The Institution Was Founded On The Principle That ‘knowledge Is Power’ But It Is Vital To Realize That Here, At This Place, The Traditional Human Paths To Knowledge, To Become Political Beings Or Financiers, Are Incomplete. Science Itself Only Offers Us One Way Of Looking At Our Problems. One Needs To Add The Suspension Of Disbelief In Order To Gain Access To The Magic Found In Life. You Don’t Learn Ordinary Things Here. “'the College Of Magical Knowledge' Is Just The Opposite Of The Kind Of Institution Where The Fellowes Wear Black And Are Very Serious. It Is A Place Where The Professors Wear As Many Colors As Possible, Plus Two! I’d Guess That Nearly Every Character I’ve Painted Went To School Here. Certainly A Few Haven’t, But You Can See Here 'bird Hunters,' 'the Fishwalker,' A 'butterfly Fisherman' And The 'pear Balancer.' For As Stately As The Building May Appear, The College Is Far Bigger On The Inside Than Out. The Fellowes Have An Incredible Library Of Stuff At Which We Can Only Guess. But Two Of The Most Prized Possessions Are The Book Of Answers And The Book Of Questions. I’ve Heard That Most Find Learning How To Ask The Right Questions Will Get Them Farther Than Simply Having All The Answers, Which Isn’t Necessarily The Path Many Institutions Take.”

Ernie Banks 36

by Goldin Auctions

July 31, 2015, 8:30 PM EST

Rosemont, IL, USA

Estimated Price: $5,000 - $6,500

Description: Our National Pastime lost one of its greatest ambassadors in January with the unfortunate passing of Mr. Cub just a week shy of his 84th birthday. So it seems perfectly fitting that this year's National Sports Collectors Convention should be held in none other than Banks' beloved Windy City, just an "L" ride away from the Friendly Confines. Ernie had attended the National multiple times in the past—with true-blue fans coming out in droves to bask in their hero's sunshine—and he was slated to return for an encore autograph session this time around. What we all wouldn't give now to once again see that million-dollar smile, those twinkling eyes, to hear Mr. Cub's cheery voice deliver his carpe-diem message to the world: "It's a beautiful day for a ballgame...Let's play two!" With this reverent, breathtakingly realistic portrait, Ron Stark has brought Banks back to life in his 1960s glory. The effervescent joy, the deep wisdom, the physical prowess, the competitive drive, the big-hearted humanity—all of these qualities burned into our collective memory bank are writ large in Stark's haunting homage. Rendered in a Baroque style reminiscent of Caravaggio, the 36" x 26" work invokes a slice of Cubs heaven by bathing Banks in an angelic glow against a dramatic backdrop of billowing clouds. For the Florida-based Stark, this piece has extra-special personal resonance because shortly after completing it, Ron took his 18-year-old son—a die-hard Cubs fan—on a pilgrimage to the holy shrine of Wrigley as a high-school graduation present. Ernie Banks would no doubt be delighted. For as he liked to tell folks, "Life is a song. Sing it. Life is a game. Play it. Life is a challenge. Meet it. Life is a dream. Realize it." Bio: Son of legendary illustrator/artist Bruce Stark, Ron is one of the most popular and respected sports artists today. For nearly 25 years, Ron has perfected his craft while paying homage to history’s finest athletic icons. Stark’s work has been showcased at galleries and museums (including a special commission for the Ted Williams Museum), at Camden Yards, on Topps cards, and on the covers of books and magazines. He often paints directly for his loyal clientele and thus seldom surfaces at auction.
