Description: Pierre-François Marie BOULANGER (1813-1891) Exceptionnelle et importante potence décorative, d'inspiration néo-gothique, figurant un dragon ailé à l'évocation d'une gargouille. L'animal, en ronde-bosse, est exécuté entièrement en fer travaillé et ouvragé à la forge, le corps et la tête d'un seul tenant, les ailes, les pattes, les oreilles et la crête fixées en rivetage. L'équerre de potence, également réalisée en métal forgé et cintré, présente un décor, de volutes et de lierre en feuilles, assemblé au moyen de vis et de rivets. Seconde moitié du XIXème siècle. Restaurations d'usage. Vendue avec son socle /support moderne, spécialement conçu pour cette œuvre. Signée Pre BOULANGER Ferronnier sur la traverse Œuvre seule : 130 x 110 x 30 cm Provenance : Collection de M. R., Côte-d'Or - France. Expert : Emmanuel Eyraud. Pierre BOULANGER, Émile ROBERT, Raymond SUBES ou l'Histoire de l'Art du travail du métal du XIXe au XXe siècle Pierre Boulanger naît à Paris dans une famille de serruriers, au sein de laquelle il se forme naturellement au travail de la forge. Il s'installe à son propre compte en 1840 effectuant principalement des travaux de restauration. Sa très grande habileté est rapidement remarquée : en 1845 l'architecte Lassus lui confie la réalisation des pentures du portail de l'église Saint-Séverin à Paris. La qualité de son travail est telle qu'il devient le " serrurier des diocésains ". Dès lors les commandes de grilles et autres travaux de ferronnerie affluent : basilique de Vézelay, cathédrale de Troyes, églises de Châlons-sur-Marne, Saint-Paul de Nîmes, Saint-Gilles du Gard, mais également au profit d'édifices civils comme l'Hôtel du Timbre ou le Musée du Louvre, pour lequel il restaure le garde-corps du balcon dit de Charles IX. En 1862 il reçoit la commande des trente-deux panneaux de la grille du chœur de la cathédrale de Bourges, dont il ne réalisera que le premier panneau, confiant le reste du chantier à Ernest Larchevêque, un serrurier berrichon qui aura plus tard pour apprenti un certain Émile Robert. Absent du chantier de Bourges, ce n'est que pour mieux se consacrer à une autre commande : la réalisation des pentures du portail principal et la restauration des portails latéraux de Notre-Dame de Paris, sous la direction de Viollet-le-Duc qui lui vouait une grande estime et une réelle admiration. Ce chantier l'occupera de 1859 à 1867. Ses travaux réalisés pour Notre-Dame ne cesseront de forcer l'admiration et d'influencer les ferronniers d'art du XXe siècle, tout particulièrement Émile Robert, véritable figure tutélaire du renouveau de l'Art du métal, dès les années 1890/1900, mais aussi Raymond Subes qui dans son ouvrage de 1961 consacré à Boulanger écrit en collaboration avec Georges Roty le petit-fils de l'artiste " …Pour la porte centrale, Boulanger déploya toute sa science, multipliant les ornements au point de donner à son travail un effet de relief assez important alors que les fers anciens restent assez proches du plan de la porte. Le nombre de pièces étampées qui ont été utilisées pour la confection d'une seule penture confond l'imagination ; pour la penture centrale, la plus importante, il dépasse sûrement les deux mille. Émile Robert étudiant la technique de réalisation d'un bouquet qui termine l'une des branches n'y dénombre pas moins de soixante soudures …"1. À la page 17 de son ouvrage, R. Subes poursuit "… C'est en étudiant les modèles anciens qui lui étaient confiés et en s'appliquant à les reproduire que Boulanger put conquérir le titre qu'il se donnait de " sculpteur sur fer ". Pour cela, afin de réaliser des personnages et des dragons semblables à ses modèles il dut apprendre à refouler en bout, à modeler le fer au marteau, à utiliser à chaud le ciseau …." puis, à la page 27, il fait le lien entre les deux virtuoses du fer dont il est le fils spirituel pour l'un et le disciple pour l'autre " …Les créations originales d'Émile Robert, ses chimères, ses têtes de dragons doivent beaucoup à l'exemple de Boulanger sculpteur sur fer et aux modèles que celui-ci réalisa à l'imitation de l'art gothique… " 1(L'œuvre du ferronnier Pierre-François Marie Boulanger 1813-1891 (sculpteur sur fer), Texte de Raymond Subes, Préface de Maurice Genevoix, Imprimerie du Compagnonnage, Paris, 1961)

Hemingway, Ernest. Typed letter signed.

by Profiles in History

June 11, 2015, 11:00 AM PST

Calabasas, CA, USA

Estimated Price: $6,000 - $8,000

Description: 70. Hemingway, Ernest. Typed letter signed (“Papa”) in red pencil at the top of the second page, 2 pages (8.5 x 11 in.; 216 x 279 mm.), on “Finca Vigia, San Francisco De Paula, Cuba” letterhead, two separate sheets, 8 August 1948, written to screenwriter Peter Viertel. With additional notations written in pencil and red pencil on the borders of both sheets and on the verso of the second. Ernest Hemingway writes his friend and screenwriter Peter Viertel.“Man should do his work and love that the most; then his woman and his children, then his friends, then all the things he likes to do, then – none of this makes very good sense.”Hemingway writes, in part: ...You have to get out of the fnucking coast. You said good bye to it in the first book. Think Europe will be good for all of us. For a change anyway. I always get stink homesick for it and the last time was there we had lots of fun…but before that it was rugged and after that it was as bad as first war (not quite as bad but still bad). Am so happy in anticipation of seeing it now civilized and being able to see the pictures again and go into the old joints and have there be something to eat and to drink and find a good café where you don’t know anybody where you can read and write. Charley Sweeny and I always had out own cafes where we did not know anyone but the garcon. Then once a week or so he would meet me at my café and I would meet him at his. Then we would eat at wonderful places where we knew nobody. I think the main awfulness of NY which I dislike same as you the coast is the corruption of going places where everybody knows everybody. That is fine in Ketchum. But with a whole big city to be able to pick your spots in is different. We used to go to places where knew people when were lonesome. But a good man shouldn’t be lonesome all the time any more than he should be scared all the time. Man should do his work and love that the most; then his woman and his children, then his friends, then all the things he likes to do, then – none of this makes very good sense. It isn’t ordered that simply. Anyway will be wonderful to see you guys. I will be good and kind to John and if he wants me to work out something just on the Zelia Parla deal ever will be glad to do. Sylvester Broadway heel. But John knows I’m straight I think. That girl was married in our house. I have handled by request of both parties all sorts of things, financial and otherwise, between her and the man who is father of her child for some years now. Sylvester can not imagine anyone doing that sort of thing without getting at least ten percent. Her husband is one of my best friends in Cuba. Naturally I do not think it is just funny for Sylvester to libel her with complete irresponsibility and impunity. Also he made the mistake of sending me an advance copy of the book telling me who the principal character was. This gets up into evidence. He also went out to Winston Guest’s house on Gardner’s Island (where our boys and I have shot many times). Also if you have no religion, do not love your wife, do not give a shit and have a sound professional grounding it is not so difficult as if you had some religion, loved your wife and had never learned the trade. Anyway for me. It was not until read his book on Infantry Tactics that knew had fought Rummel [sic] in Italy. Also kicked shit out of same. He didn’t notice, like lots of krauts, that they did not get where they had to get and that everything else was cabbage. Must knock off now and get to work. Pete don’t let anything get to you. We have all been hit and will be hit again. We just shouldn’t have to stay in and you have to protect the very delicate and lovely mechanism you write with and still be a man and provide for your dependents. My god damned project was designed to try to do that. But I know it is a fine project because every time I think of it I light up the way I only light up when know am right…In the borders of both sheets and on the verso of the second, Hemingway has written the following notations: Gig and I worked good on trip. Also caught 6 big king 8 yellowtail, 7 wahoo, and shot 24 negro geese for the cats (four meals) Have good cow 1 Guernsey now called “Colsie’s Pride”. She saves 44.60 a month in milk. Gift of old friend. New when broke. Now has money I thought Marys [sic] idea was silly. But never tell anybody you love they are silly…Love to Jige. Please send back this introduction and only show it to Eddie Rolfe if you see him. Don’t want Wolfram publishing it…Latimer no good. Repeat no good.Early in 1949, after a relatively lean decade, Hemingway at last regained his stride as a novelist, and within a few short years had completed several novels, including, The Old Man and the Sea, for which he was awarded the Pulitzer Prize in 1953. Though Finca Vigia remained his permanent home, Hemingway continued to travel extensively, indulging in the outdoor pursuits so vividly described in these lines to Peter Viertel, who wrote the screenplays for his novels The Old Man and the Sea and The Sun Also Rises. On this occasion, he was accompanied buy his son “Gigi” (Gregory), like his father, an avid marksman. Hemingway’s fourth wife, journalist Mary Welsh, whom he had married in 1946, was working in London for Time-Life when they first met in late spring 1944. In Constantinople, in 1922, Hemingway met Colonel Charles Sweeny, a soldier of fortune who was said to have fought in seven wars with the armies of five countries. Sylvester is probably the novelist and short story writer Harry Sylvester, whom Hemingway had known since the 1930s. $6,000 - $8,000

In 1926, with help from his father, he built his workshop, which he called Gatesbield, which was designed by the architect Kenneth Cross. He worked there for the rest of his life and adhered to the Arts and Crafts Movement's ideals of the craftsman-maker versus machine-production. He designed and made domes

Description: 127. Roosevelt, Franklin D. Rare autograph letter signed (“F.D.R.”) as President, 2 pages (5.25 x 8.25 in.; 133 x 210 mm.), on White House letterhead, 26 February [1934], to Secretary of Labor, Frances Perkins (the first female member of a Presidential cabinet) concerning appointments to the National Labor Relations Board. Expected folds; light uneven toning; mounting remnants on verso. Franklin D. Roosevelt writes to Secretary of Labor Frances Perkins concerning the re-origination of the fledgling National Labor Relations Board as the President prepared to make the board independent of the National Recovery Administration.Roosevelt writes in full: I suggest after talking with Sen. Wagner or others that we ask Clay Williams & Frank Walsh to act as Vice-Chairmen of Nat. Labor B[oar]d— When a Vice Chairman sits on a new case it is my thought he should carry it through to final decision & that Bob & the 2 V.C.’s should consult frequently as to the general policy. Will you talk this over with Bob & then I can make appointments. — Bob also suggests Grant, Draper, Dennison, Walter A Draper as additional members to represent industry  An important letter from a pivotal period early in the history of the National Labor Relations Board (N.L.R.B.) as he sought to give the board independence from the National Recovery Administration following its first tumultuous year of existence. Roosevelt’s suggestion that prominent labor attorney Frank P. Walsh serve as a co-chair with Samuel Clay Williams was dropped. However, Roosevelt did agree Senator Wagner’s suggestions of Ernest Draper of Hill Brothers Company, New York, and Henry Dennison of the Dennison Manufacturing Company, Framingham, Massachusetts to serve as additional vice-chairmen of the N.L.R.B. $10,000 - $15,000

Typed letter signed (“Rutherford”), 1 page (4.5 x 7 in.; 114 x 178 mm.), on “Newnham Cottage, Queen’s Road, Cambridge” blind-stamped stationery, 18 June 1931, written to “Dear Mr. Spicer”. Minor ink transfer below date.Ernest Rutherford – the father of nuclear physics.Rutherford writes in full: Dear Mr. Spicer, I thank you for your kindness in sending me copies of some of the films which are excellent. I must take this opportunity of thanking you for the very pleasant and interesting day you gave us at Sawston. Yours sincerely, RutherfordIn his early work, New Zealand-born British physicist Ernest Rutherford discovered the concept of radioactive half-life, proved that radioactivity involved the transmutation of one chemical element to another, and also differentiated and named alpha and beta radiation. This work, done at McGill University in Canada, is the basis for the Nobel Prize in Chemistry he was awarded in 1908. Interestingly, Rutherford performed his most famous work after he became a Nobel laureate. In 1911 he theorized that atoms have their charge concentrated in a very small nucleus, and thereby pioneered the Rutherford model of the atom. He is widely credited with being the first to “split the atom” in 1917 in a nuclear reaction between nitrogen and alpha particles, in which he also discovered (and named) the proton. In 1919 Rutherford became the Director of the Cavendish Laboratory at Cambridge University. Under his leadership, the neutron was discovered by James Chadwick in 1932. In the same year, the first experiment to split the nucleus in a fully controlled manner was performed by students working under his direction (John Cockcroft and Ernest Walton). $800 - $1,200

Jules PASCIN  Correspondance à André Warnod

by Artcurial - Briest - Poulain - F. Tajan

June 22, 2015, 2:30 PM CET

Paris, France

Estimated Price: €1,500 - €2,000

Description: Jules PASCIN Correspondance à André Warnod 13 lettres autographes signées, 1 télégramme à André Warnod, le tout de différents formats allant de in-12 à in-8. 22 p. vers 1925, signées "Pascin". Le peintre Jules Pascin, arrivé de Bulgarie à Paris en 1905, va être un élément essentiel de la vie artistique parisienne. Il sera même un personnage dans "Paris est une fête" d'Ernest Hemingway, où un chapitre est intitulé "Pascin au Dôme". Il va beaucoup voyager sur la côte d'Azur, de Sanary à Saint Tropez. Il a fait le connu portrait de Jeanine Warnod enfant et a rencontré André Warnod vers 1925. Ils deviendront très proches. C'est une correspondance précieuse, qui nous dévoile les traits de la personnalité d'un grand artiste, sensible et humain, aimant la vie et la nuit parisienne. Souvent sous l'emprise de l'alcool, ces lettres en témoignent largement. Il se suicidera tragiquement au printemps 1930 dans son atelier. "Mille merci pour votre mot. C'est très gentil de votre part d'avoir pensé à moi pour cette exposition de portraits d'enfants. Comme la date semble encore assez éloignée j'aurais peut être le temps de faire le portrait de votre petite fille. En ce moment je suis en plein travail pour "L'Araignée" des portraits sérieux d'après nature promettant une série assez embêtante. J'ai commencé quelques autres compositions, assez grandes et plus fantaisistes dont les portraits de Mac Orlan et Salmon." Il doit illustrer un livre de Warnod, mais ne veut pas le colorer. Il est assez exigeant pour les reproductions et donne de précisions aiguës. Même dans l'écrit, l'artiste reste bien présent : "J'ai fait des essays de colloriage [sic] mais comme j'ai prévu d'avance cela n'avantage pas du tout les dessins, n'ajoute rien à leur expression, abime le jeu des lignes et leur donne un genre journal rigolo quelconque, qui, bien que je n'avais aucune prétention d' "Art" en faisant mes dessins, n'était pas prévu. Du reste des personnes dont je respecte beaucoup le jugement et qui aimaient les dessins étaient épouvantées à l'idée que j'allais les barioler aux couleurs jaune, bleu, violet, vert, rose, etc. du coloris au pochoir. Je ne donne aucune importance à mes dessins mais en voyant les clichés j'étais quand même un peu content de voire que tous les dessins avaient l'air écrits d'un même trait. Cela peut donner un mouvement qui sera complètement détruit par le coloriage qui en fera des petits tableaux (que je n'avais pas prévu) et les abaissera à un niveau, "Pèle -Mêle" Benjamin Rabier qui a déjà fait du tort à quelques livres de Jonquières. Voilà pourquoi je voudrais vous embêter de demander à notre jeune éditeur de renoncer au coloris excepté pour le frontispice. Je vous garantis que notre livre en gagnera. Je ne sais pas si vous connaissez le plus beau livre illustré qui a paru depuis la vague des bibliophiles, "?le Manuscrit trouvé dans un chapeau" de Salmon, illustré par Picasso, entièrement en dessins au traits, sans couleurs […]" "J'ai encore reçu une longue découpure de "Aux Ecoutes" avec un article ignoble, dans lequel on me mêlait à Kiki "l'impudique modèle" à Gus Bofa et à une histoire arrivé à des allemands à Sanary des mois après mon départ […]" Joint : - Divers documents émanent du Tribunal de Première Instance, vers 1931, concernant un faux Pascin, vendu dans une galerie et pour lequel André Warnod, fut appelé à donner son avis d'expert. - Une lettre de Lucy Krogh, la maîtresse de Pascin, sur ses mêmes faux. - Une lettre d'Hermine David, épouse de Pascin. Provenance : Bibliothèque Warnod
