Josef Israels  (1824 - 1911) Oil/Canvas

by Sarasota Estate Auction

February 27, 2016, 12:00 PM EST

Sarasota, FL, USA

Estimated Price: $9,000 - $12,000

Description: Jozef Israels was educated at the Amsterdam Academy (1840) and at the École des Beaux-Arts in Paris, under Vernet and Delaroche. On his return to Amsterdam in 1847, he worked as a historical and religious painter and increasingly, from 1852, concentrated on Dutch history. The work for which he was best known dates from the 1860s, when his brushwork loosened and he developed a soft tonal range of grays and browns (e.g. Maternal Bliss, 1890, Amsterdam, Rijksmuseum). In the 1870's he settled in The Hague and became one of the leading members of The Hague School. He has been called the "Dutch Millet" due to his similar subject matter and sympathy for the poor (e.g. Growing Old, 1878, The Hague). During his lifetime Israels won great popularity for his piously sentimental approach to his work. Israels' paintings were especially popular in Britain after Fishermen Carrying a Drowned Man (1861, London, National Gallery) was exhibited at the Royal Academy. His participation in the Paris Exhibition of 1878 cemented Israel's reputation. His son, Isaac (1865-1934) also worked at The Hague, but in a style almost completely independent of his father's. In his later life Israels' work was influenced by his son, towards a lighter, more impressionistic palette. Max Liebermann, his pupil and contemporary, wrote that "Israels first realized himself at an age at which most painters have already produced their best work; and, had he had the misfortune to die at forty, Holland would have been unable to boast of one of her greatest sons." Sight Size: 12 x 15.25 in.

O/C Rocky Shoreline, Xavier Barile, (1891-1981)

by Louis J. Dianni, LLC

February 15, 2016, 11:00 AM EST

West Palm Beach, FL, USA

Estimated Price: $400 - $800

Description: This oil on canvas painting depicts a rocky shorelined beach in Rockport, MA, In 1907 created by Xavier Barile. His mother brought him, his two younger brothers and two sisters to New York, to join their father who had been in New York for several years, preparing the way. He quickly learned English and spent some time helping his father, who was earning a living for the family as a tailor. Having learned English well, Barile then enrolled in the Evening Art Classes at Cooper Union Institute in New York. In due course he enrolled in the Art Students League, New York City. Here he came under the influence of John Sloan, Reginald Marsh and Victor Perard as teachers and George Luks, Robert Henri and Everett Shinn of "the Eight" as friends and colleagues. In 1939 John Sloan dedicated his book, Gist of Art as follows, "To my old friend, first monitor of my first class at the Art Students League 1914." This friendship and mutual regard lasted until Sloan's death in 1951. Of course, it was only natural that Barile should be a part of the "Ashcan School," painting the New York Scene. During this time that he was on his own he worked with all mediums - oil, watercolor, pastel, casein, charcoal, etc. - and he did some fine work with monotypes. It was during these years, the 20's and 30's, that he began to exhibit in such places as the Whitney Studio Club (forerunner of the Whitney Museum of American Art), The Kit Kat Club, The Anderson Gallery, The Cincinnati Museum, The New Mexico Museum, National Society of Painters in Casein, The Salmagundi Club and many other exhibits throughout the United States. He is currently represented in The National Collection of Fine Arts (NCFA) Smithsonian Institution, Washington, D.C. In the mid 30's, like many another struggling artist, XJB worked on the WPA Art Project. One of the murals he worked on is in the U.S. Customs House, Bowling Green, N.Y.C. In this project he collaborated with Reginald Marsh who was the supervisor of this phase of the work. The years until 1939 were spent working in all parts of the United States and in conducting his own classes for aspiring artists. In 1939, on the recommendation of John Sloan, he became the founder, first teacher and Chairman of The Department of Fine Arts, Pueblo Junior College, Pueblo Colorado. He held that position until 1945 when he returned to his beloved New York. His work during that period reflects his interest and fascination with the West and Southwest. The Pueblo-College History says, "Mr. Xavier J. Barile came to the college as Head of the Art Department in 1939. Under his guidance the Department developed into an outstanding asset in the community" After his return to New York, he again began teaching, with his Barile Fine Arts Group. He continued teaching and producing, to the point where every part of the United States, Nassau and Mexico is represented in his word. In 1961, at the age of 70, he married his student, Lolita de Silva, a budding artist much younger than himself. It was the first marriage for both of them. The marriage lasted until 1979 when Lolita, who had suffered several nervous breakdowns, was taken back to Mexico by her family. Barile lived to ninety years of age, mentally alert almost to the end of his life. At his age, he was one of the last, if not the last of the artists of the Ashcan School.

Condition Report: Craquelure along the sky and some inpaint touchups in the rocks, umbrella and blanket.

IRAKLY SHANIDZE - Original Gelatin Silver - Signed

by Artelisted

March 3, 2016, 5:00 PM EST

Boca Raton, FL, USA

Estimated Price: $200 - $400

Description: Madonna, dimensions: 11" x 14" on Fujifilm Fujicolor Crystal Archive paper, signed lower right by Irakly Shanidze (Russia) . Irakly Shanidze was born in Tbilisi in 1968. He was graduated from the Chemistry Department Moscow State University with MS in Chemical Enzymology. In 1993, he moved to Detroit, Michigan, US, where he pursued PhD in Pharmacology/Molecular Biology at Wayne State University and then MPH/MHSA in University of Michigan, School of Public Health. Concurrently he studied at New York Institute of Photography and was graduated in 2000.Photography became a part of Irakly's life at the age of 12 after he received a pre-war Reflex Korelle from his grandfather as a gift. While studying at Moscow State University he contributed to the University newspaper "_______ ___________ ____________."[translation?] When on a military duty (1987_1989), Irakly held a position of a staff photojournalist at a regional military newspaper "_____ ______".In 2000, Irakly opened a photo studio in Detroit, USA. In 2004, he partnered with Pavel Kiselev to open International Academy of Photographic Arts.[1] In 2004_2007, he was commissioned by a mime theater "_______"[2]Irakly Shanidze's fine art work has found a place in permanent collections of Fotoloft Gallery, Moscow,[3][4] River Edge Gallery, Wyandotte, Michigan.[5] His photos have been shown at the State Exhibition Center Manezh, St. Petersburg,[6] The Museum of Russian Art (MORA)[7]As an advertising photographer, he has performed jobs for such multinational corporations as Japan Tobacco International, Lexar Microsystems, Inc.,[8] Leica Camera AG.He published a number of articles on Photography,[9][10][11][12][13][14]Irakly's photography features multiple unusual techniques that he himself invented, or perfected.He creates his Images with minimal, or no digital post-production by employing mirrors, subversive lighting setups, etc.He is one of the few photographers in the world who relies exclusively on Leica M camera equipment for his advertising work.Professional projects in the field of Advertising Photography vary between the 'straight' (though rarely totally so) style of well-lit and executed studio work and the intricate application to commercial purposes of his subversive and symbolic style, sometimes involving complex pseudo-real setups intended to imbue the product with the spontaneity and style of street life. His recent collection of images created for Japan Tobacco International as a symbolic representation of their brand "Sobranie" showcases the latter.[15]Much of his personal work is most tidily described as 'street' though it is in fact rather different from classical street photography in that he places greater emphasis on the imagined and the surreal. Whether it is a series of images in which strangers on the subway gradually emerge as spies,[16] or individual images in which found scenes take on allegorical overtones as a result of the manner in which their elements are juxtaposed, nothing in Shanidze's work is ever what it immediately seems. Whether subtly mocking a classical painting or using strongly symbolic elements, Shanidze invites the viewer to subvert his own views of the real in the process of decoding the surreal.[17][18][19][20]At the time of writing Shanidze has exhibited his work in more that twenty personal and group shows in the USA, Canada and Russia. He has published more than a hundred photographs and numerous articles in American and Russian magazines and web sites. He is a founder of the International Academy of Photographic Arts, and a visiting professor at Moscow Academy of Photography where he actively teaches the artistic side of photography online. He also holds seminars and workshops across the US and Europe.Currently resides and works in Detroit, Michigan, US. Recently his interest shifted heavily towards visual representation of classical dance. Among his clients are: Ballet Detroit Foundation, ArtlabJ and accomplished performers such as Alisa Sodoleva (Mariinsky Theatre), Keenan Kampa (Mariinsky Theatre, Boston Ballet), Viktoria Ananyan (Dutch National Opera and Ballet), Patricia Zhou (Berlin National Ballet), Olga Pavlova (formerly Bolshoi Theatre), Anton Korsakov (Mariinsky Theatre), Sergei Sidorsky (Kiev Theatre of Opera and Ballet), Daniil Simkin (American Ballet Theatre).

The mat is water stained. The later frame is slightly worn. The dimensions of the sheet are 36.6 x 28 cm, while the frame measures 48 x 40 cm.Hubert Robert (1733-1808)Hubert Robert was born in Paris in 1733. He finished his studies with the Jesuits at the Collège de Navarre in 1751 and entered the atelier of the sculptor Michel-Ange Slodtz who taught him design and perspective but encouraged him to turn to painting. In 1754 he left for Rome and spent there eleven years. The contrast between the ruins of ancient Rome and the life of his time excited his keenest interest. Robert spent his time in the company of young artists in the circle of Piranesi, whose ‘capricci‘ of romantically overgrown ruins influenced him so greatly that he gained the nickname ‘Robert des Ruines’. The albums of sketches and drawings he assembled in Rome supplied him with motifs that he worked into paintings throughout his career. His success on his return to Paris in 1765 was rapid: the following year he was supported by the Académie Royale de Peinture et de Sculpture. Subsequently he was placed on the committee of five in charge of the New National Museum at the Palais du Louvre where some of his works can be found still today.

John Francis ? Antique Oil - Hudson River School Still Life with peaches

by Artelisted

March 3, 2016, 5:00 PM EST

Boca Raton, FL, USA

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

Description: This spectacular 19th C. still life with peaches from the Hudson River School is an authentic oil on canvas. Dimensions are 20" x 16" for the canvas and 1.5" w. for the original wood frame. Artwork is unsigned. This artwork might be by an important Hudson River School artist. probaly John F. Francis or William Mason Brown. The Hudson River School was Americas first true artistic fraternity. Its name was coined to identify a group of New York City-based landscape painters that emerged about 1850 under the influence of the English _migr_ Thomas Cole (1801_1848) and flourished until about the time of the Centennial. Because of the inspiration exerted by his work, Cole is usually regarded as the _fatherî or _founderî of the school, though he himself played no special organizational or fostering role except that he was the teacher of Frederic Edwin Church (1826_1900). Along with Albert Bierstadt (1830_1902), Church was the most successful painter of the school until its decline. After Coles death in 1848, his older contemporary Asher B. Durand (1796_1886) became the acknowledged leader of the New York landscape painters; in 1845, he rose to the presidency of the National Academy of Design, the reigning art institution of the period, and, in 1855_56, published a series of _Letters on Landscape Paintingî which codified the standard of idealized naturalism that marked the schools production. The New York landscape painters were not only stylistically but socially coherent. Most belonged to the National Academy, were members of the same clubs, especially the Century, and, by 1858, many of them even worked at the same address, the Studio Building on West Tenth Street, the first purpose-built artist workspace in the city. Eventually, several of the artists built homes on the Hudson River. Though the earliest references to the term _Hudson River Schoolî in the 1870s were disparagingly aimed, the label has never been supplanted and fairly characterizes the artistic body, its New York headquarters, its landscape subject matter, and often literally its subject. If Cole is rightly designated the founder of the school, then its beginnings appear with his arrival in New York City in 1825. He determined to become a landscape painter after a period of itinerant portrait painting in Ohio and western Pennsylvania, and a stint in Philadelphia during which he admired and imitated the landscapes of early American specialists such as Thomas Doughty. As significantly, in 1824, a tourist hotel was opened in the Catskill Mountains one hundred miles upriver from New York. Once in New York in late 1825, Cole sailed for the Catskills, making sketches there and elsewhere along the banks of the Hudson. He produced a series of paintings that, when spotted in a bookstore window by three influential artists, gained him widespread commissions and almost instant fame. He was welcomed into the larger cultural life of the city, and was befriended especially by William Cullen Bryant, the poet and newspaper editor, who wrote a sonnet to Cole when he departed on a Grand Tour of Europe in 1829. From the start, Coles style was marked by dramatic forms and vigorous technique, reflecting the British aesthetic theory of the Sublime, or fearsome, in nature. In the representation of American landscape, really in its infancy in the early nineteenth century, the application of the Sublime was virtually unprecedented, and moreover accorded with a growing appreciation of the wildness of native scenery that had not been seriously addressed by Coles predecessors. However, the wilderness theme had earlier gained currency in American literature, especially in the _Leatherstockingî novels of James Fenimore Cooper, which were set in the upstate New York locales that became Coles earliest subjects, including several pictures illustrating scenes from the novels. Fired by the initial reception to his work, as well as by engravings of historical landscapes by J. M. W. Turner and John Martin, Coles ambitions swelled during his European tour. After Cole returned to America, he continued to interpret the Italian landscape in the form of monumental allegories comprising several pictures, such as The Course of Empire (1834_36; New-York Historical Society) and, following his second European trip in 1839_40, The Voyage of Life (1840; Munson-Williams-Proctor Arts Institute, Ithaca, N.Y.). Cole continued to produce scenic American subjects, but even in those his aims were aggrandized by the historical and religious preoccupations of his mature career. He died rather suddenly in Catskill, New York, where he had moved in 1836, starting a tradition followed by many Hudson River School artists. The engraver, portrait, and genre painter Asher Durand was one of the three discoverers of Thomas Cole in 1825 and, in the following decade, was gradually moved to take up landscape painting himself. However, by the time Durand wrote _Letters on Landscape Paintingî in the 1850s, he had seen the plein-air work of John Constable, Turners colleague and rival, in England, and held Constables naturalism up as the standard for young landscape paintersÜin the process, gently relegating Coles histrionic subjects and style to the past. With the example of Durand in both word and practice, outdoor sketching in oils as the foundation of and model for studio landscapes became common, and both plein-airism and the loosening authority of Sublime aesthetics led to a less inflected idiom whose most conspicuous features often were the light influencing terrestrial forms and the air bathing them. This trend coincided with the proliferation of tourist resorts both inland and on the coast during the Civil War period, along with the refinement of the vacation experienceÜincreasingly pursued to relieve the pressures of urban workaday life. Painters who both reflected the new aesthetic standards and accommodated the vacationing class of patrons were John F. Kensett (1816_1872), Martin Johnson Heade (1819_1904), Worthington Whittredge (1820_1910), Sanford Robinson Gifford (1823_1880), Jasper Francis Cropsey (1823_1900), and Jervis McEntee (1828_1891). Somewhat exceptional were Frederic Church and Albert Bierstadt, who in a measure extended the heroic landscape ambitions of Cole after his death. Church enjoyed the privilege and distinction of being Coles student (1844_46), but supplanted his teachers literary and historical conceits with scientific and expeditionary ones. Establishing his reputation with outsize depictions of North American scenic wonders such as Niagara Falls, Church was stirred by the travel accounts and scientific tracts of the German naturalist Alexander von Humboldt to journey twice to South America in the 1850s and paint large-scale landscapes of the equatorial Andean regions that encompassed torrid to frigid habitats in a single pictureÜthe Earth in microcosm. The Museums ten-foot-wide Heart of the Andes (09.95) is the most ambitious and acclaimed of these works. It was promoted as a single-picture attractionÜi.e., set in a dark, windowlike frame draped with curtains and starkly illuminated in an otherwise darkened roomÜthat drew thousands of paying spectators in New York, London, and eight other American cities. Later Church exhibited _full-scaleî paintings of the Arctic regions and the Holy Land. In the Civil War years, Churchs only serious rival was Albert Bierstadt, an _migr_ who returned to his native Germany to study art at the Dªsseldorf Academy. After a stint in Switzerland and Italy, he returned to the U.S. to seizeÜjust as Church had the southern hemisphereÜthe American West as his artistic frontier. The Museums six-by-ten-foot Rocky Mountains, Landers Peak (07.123) was the chief product of Bierstadts first journey to the Rockies of Wyoming with the government survey expedition of Colonel Frederick W. Lander. The great painting was placed as a deliberate complement and competitor opposite The Heart of the Andes in the art gallery of the Metropolitan Fair in New York in 1864. In another gallery of the fair, the artist mounted a tableau vivant of real Indians recalling those in the foreground of his picture. In 1866, Bierstadt was among the earliest white visitors to Yosemite, and produced many large paintings of that region. He toured many times in the West, as well as in Canada, Alaska, Europe, and the Bahamas, and cultivated a large international clientele. His numerous sales enabled him to build a baronial mansion on the Hudson River at Irvington in 1866, even as Church was beginning his great home overlooking the river at Hudson, New York. By the time Church and Bierstadt died, respectively in 1900 and 1902, the Hudson River School had been virtually forgotten. Its fall from grace began about the time of the Centennial. After the Civil War, the aesthetic orientation of the United States shifted from Great Britain, the mother culture, to the Continent, especially France. The appeal of figure painting grew somewhat at the expense of landscape, but the face of landscape painting itself altered with the influence of the softer, more intimate French Barbizon style first adapted to American scenery by George Inness (1825_1894). At first spurned or ignored by critics, Inness gained admiration through the Civil War and Reconstruction periods. By the 1880s, he had become the most highly regarded landscape painter in America and was attracting many followers. The Hudson River School, on the other hand, was increasingly assailed for its scenic and monumental aesthetics, prompting the derogatory label it has worn through its revival in the mid- and later twentieth century.
