James Rosenquist, ‘Sketch for Kalyx Krater Trash Cans’, 1975

by Auctionata US

September 24, 2015, 10:00 AM EST

New York, NY, USA

Estimated Price: $10,000 - $15,000

Description: Graphite on paperUSA, 1975James Rosenquist (b. 1933) – American Pop artistSigned, titled and dated in pencil ‘Sketch for Kalyx Krater Trash Cans James Rosenquist 1975’FramedDimensions (irreg.): 24 x 16 ¾ in. (61 x 42.5 cm.)Frame dimensions: 26 ¾ x 19 ¾ in. (67.9 x 50.2 cm.)Good condition Estimate $10,000-$15,000ProvenanceGift from the artist to the present owner. This study for the artist’s famed “Calyx Krater Trash Can” series was created after Rosenquist learned of some deaccessions the Metropolitan Museum made from their permanent collection in order to purchase an ancient Greek vase by Eurphronios, called the Calyx Crater, for one million dollars. “The ridiculousness of the idea of selling a Modigliani and a Soutine weighed on my mind, and while I was brooding about it, my friend Ronnie Westerfield took some peyote and had a dream about Greek drawings on a garbage can. I thought, I know what I’m going to do, I’m going to make miniature Calyx Kraters as garbage cans and make them out ofsolid gold.” (James Rosenquist quoted in “Painting Below Zero: Notes on a Life in Art,” New York, 2009, p.245-6). James Rosenquist (American, b. 1933) Arguably the most openly political artist associated with the Pop Art movement, James Rosenquist studied at the University of Minnesota under Cameron Booth. He painted his first billboard in 1954, and a year later was awarded a scholarship to attend the Art Students League in New York. After completing his studies, he began a career as a commercial billboard painter, laying the foundations for his later large-scale compositions. His fragmented imagery drew from many commercial, social and political sources; During the Vietnam War, Rosenquist became more openly critical of the military-industrial complex and American consumerism. In 2003, the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum mounted a major retrospective of his works, which traveled to the Menil Collection, Museum of Fine Arts in Houston, and Guggenheim Museum Bilbao. Rosenquist lives and works in Aripeka, Florida. ConditionIn generally good condition with pale scattered foxing and minor soft handling crease in the upper left margin. Shipping costs excl. statutory VAT and plus 2,5% (+VAT) shipping insurance.

American Gothic Rosewood Dressing Chest

by Neal Auction Company

September 12, 2015, 10:00 AM CST

New Orleans, LA, USA

Estimated Price: $7,000 - $10,000

Description: American Gothic Carved and Grained Rosewood Dressing Chest, c. 1840, crocketed mirror, fluted supports, marble top with outset chamfered corners, conforming case with paneled drawers, shaped feet, h. 96 1/2 in., w. 51 1/2 in., d. 25 in. Provenance: Acquired c. 1974 from a St. Charles Avenue home, New Orleans. Note: Bedroom furniture in the Gothic Revival mode is rare, as taste makers like Alexander Jackson Davis and Pugin favored forms for foyers, libraries and parlors. Examples of Gothic Revival bedroom furniture with the monumental proportions and fine execution of this dresser and washstand in the subsequent lot are known from the Henry Clay/Rosedown suite by Crawford Riddell and an important bed from the collection of Lee Anderson.

CY TWOMBLY

by East Coast Books

September 12, 2015, 7:00 PM EST

Wells, ME, USA

Estimated Price: $1,000 - $1,500

Description: CY TWOMBLY (American 1928-2011) American painter, sculptor and photographer. He belonged to the generation of Robert Rauschenberg and Jasper Johns but made the specific choice to live in Italy after 1957. His works are in the permanent collections of most of the museums of modern art around the world, including the Menil Collection in Houston, the Tate Modern in London or the New York's Museum of Modern Art. He was also commisionned for the ceiling of a room of the Musée du Louvre in Paris. Twombly is said to have influenced younger artists such as Jean-Michel Basquiat, Anselm Kiefer, Francesco Clemente, and Julian Schnabel. Offered here is the rare offset lithograph for his 1967 exhibition at the Leo Castelli Gallery, plate signed historic mailer. It was in this exhibition where his grey paintings were exhibited for the first time ever. It measures 25.5 inches by 21.5 inches and is matrix signed center right in the plate. The mailer is shown when opened up, and also folded, as it was mailed. This one bears the original postmark of October 4, 1967 and it has tiny pinholes at the top corners as it was originally pinned up in the recipient's studio. The folds and corner creases (from having been actually sent in the mail). An extremely rare and desirable piece of art history - and a must have for fans of Cy Twombly, as well as collectors of vintage ephemera from the legendary Leo Castelli Gallery, the brilliant dealer who represented Andy Warhol, Roy Lichtenstein, Robert Rauschenberg, Frank Stella, Cy Twombly and many others -- but is perhaps best known as the dealer who discovered Jasper Johns and, who, along with his former wife, the innovative Ileanna Sonnabend, helped catapult Johns and other American Abstract & Pop artists to international superstardom. This is one of the more elusive and valuable early Castelli lithographic posters. VG.

Stunning, large signed photograph of Enrico Caruso as the Duke of Mantua in the Met Opera's 1904 production of 'Rigoletto'

by Lion Heart Autographs

September 30, 2015, 12:00 PM EST

New York, NY, USA

Estimated Price: $2,400 - $2,800

Description: CARUSO, ENRICO. (1873-1921). Italian tenor and perhaps the most famous singer in history. SP. (“Enrico Caruso”). 1p. Folio. New York, 1904. A stunning Aimé Dupont photograph of Caruso as the Duke of Mantua in Rigoletto, leaning on an ornately carved chair and gazing directly at the camera. ********** Following his debut in Rigoletto at London’s Royal Opera House, Caruso made his American debut in the same opera at New York’s Metropolitan Opera House in 1903, where he quickly became a sensation and the stage’s most popular attraction. Initial American reviews of Caruso’s London performances were unremarkable and the new general manager of the Met, Heinrich Conried (1855-1909), unsuccessfully attempted to reduce Caruso’s contracted performances from 25 to 10. However, his New York debut on November 23, 1903 as the Duke in Rigoletto quickly established him as one of the greatest tenors ever. His performance immediately resonated with his audience, and his version of “La donna è mobile” led to a standing ovation, with many critics viewing it as the highlight of the performance. “The climax he made with a grand rush and a superb vocal flourish. The house rose to him, and his countrymen made the walls ring with their bravas.” (New York Journal). ********** Of the more than 50 roles he played, the majority were at the Metropolitan. Following his Met debut, Caruso signed a lucrative contract with the Victor Talking Machine Company and began producing American discs in early 1904. Thanks in part to his phonograph recordings, some of the first made by any singer, Caruso is remembered as one of the most talented tenors ever. “His phenomenal tone production, the smoothness of his registers, the nobility of his acting and singing style are even today to be marveled at on his more than two hundred records” (A Concise Biographical Dictionary of Singers, Kutsch & Riemens). ********** This 10.5’’ x 13.5’’ image is mounted onto the photographer’s 12’’ x 17.5’’ matte and bears some slight wear. The recipient’s name has been artfully removed so that it is nearly invisible. In very fine condition, and uncommon in this large format. Framed.

Rare John Adams 1799 signed naval appointment as president

by Lion Heart Autographs

September 30, 2015, 12:00 PM EST

New York, NY, USA

Estimated Price: $4,000 - $6,000

Description: ADAMS, JOHN. (1735-1826). Second president of the United States; known for his role in drafting the Declaration of Independence and negotiating the peace treaty with Great Britain that ended the American Revolution. DS. (“John Adams”). 1p. Small Oblong Folio. Philadelphia, October 1, 1799. Appointment of DAVID DEACON (?-1840) to the rank of midshipman in the U. S. Navy. ********** Massachusetts delegate to the first and second Continental Congresses and one of the authors and signers of the Declaration of Independence, Adams, along with Benjamin Franklin, served as joint commissioners to France in 1777 after which he spent the next ten years representing American interests abroad. Along with Jay and Franklin, he facilitated an end to the American Revolution, restoring peaceful relations and commercial ties between the U.S. and Great Britain in the 1783 Treaty of Paris. After disbanding the Continental Navy in 1784, American merchant ships were subject to seizure by French revolutionaries, a practice that escalated into an undeclared “Quasi-War.” Under President Adams, Congress established the Department of the Navy and the United States Marine Corps in 1798. The dispute between France and America, however, was not formally resolved until the Convention of Paris in 1800. By recognizing American naval rights it helped free the young nation from any lingering allegiance to France that had been forged during the American Revolution. ********** After beginning his naval career as a midshipman in 1799, Deacon was promoted to lieutenant in 1807, master commandant in 1814 and captain in 1826. From 1834 to 1837, he was captain of the frigate Brandywine, charged with patrolling South America’s Pacific coast under the command of Commodore Alexander S. Wadsworth. Deacon nearly sparked an international incident when, acting as commander of the Brandywine in the commodore’s absence in 1836, he denied Chilean consul-general Venture Lavalle permission to board during the War of the Confederation, the conflict between the Peruvian-Bolivian Confederation and Chile, its Peruvian dissidents and Argentinian allies. “The furious Lavalle promptly moved on to the French frigate Flora, ‘where he was instantly admitted, and hospitably entertained.’ The U.S. chargé at Lima mourned the commodore’s absence, for he thought that Deacon’s insulting behavior had produced for his country ‘great mortification, and, consequently, diminution of usefulness,” (Gold Braid and Foreign Relations: Diplomatic Activities of U.S. Naval Officers 1798-1883, Long). ********** A partially-printed vellum document, bearing a large if somewhat light, but entirely legible, John Adams signature. Some darkening in the folds and scattered spotting. The Navy Department paper seal is still attached to the upper left corner. Countersigned by BENJAMIN STODDERT (1744-1813), America’s first secretary of the navy. Framed with a steel engraving of Adams. Not examined out of the frame. Surprisingly uncommon in this format.
