LETTERS FROM COL. ELLSWORTH'S PARENTS ABOUT THEIR SON'S DEATH.

by Garth's Auctioneers & Appraisers

May 15, 2015, 12:00 PM EST

Delaware, OH, USA

Estimated Price: $300 - $600

Description: LETTERS FROM COL. ELLSWORTH'S PARENTS ABOUT THEIR SON'S DEATH. Both to Fred Jackson. The first dated Mechanicsville, New York, January 26, 1862; on one side is a letter from Phebe Ellsworth that mentions her son's death, and on the other is a letter from E.D. Ellsworth in which he talks about retrieving his son's horse from Washington. Together with a letter dated Vergennes, Vermont, March 22, 1863, to Fred Jackson from Phebe Jackson, who writes "Would that I could express my sympathy for the sacrifice you have made in behalf of our afflicted country in her struggle for freedom..." Elmer Ellsworth (1837-1861) was an ambitious young man whose rise to prominence was cut short on May 24, 1861 when he became the first Union soldier killed in the Civil War. He grew up in Illinois and studied law in Chicago where he also mustered the Cadet Attachment to the 60th Illinois Militia. A Springfield attorney named Abraham Lincoln hired young Ellsworth as a clerk in 1860, and Ellsworth followed Lincoln to Washington in 1861. Shortly thereafter, he moved to New York and raised the 11th New York Volunteers, modeling their training, and their uniforms, on the Algerian and French troops fighting in North Africa, called the Zouaves. Having recruited firemen for his unit, Ellsworth nicknamed them the Fire Zouaves. On May 24, 1861, Ellsworth and his Fire Zouaves began their occupation of Alexandria, Virginia. There they encountered a large Confederate flag hanging over the Marshall House inn. In Ellsworth's determined attempt to take down the flag, he was gunned down by innkeeper James Jackson, who was promptly killed by Zouave Corporal James Brownell. Ellsworth immediately became a martyr for the Union cause, inspiring songs and poetry, and a nation of patriotic souvenir-collectors began seeking out photographs and autographs of the fallen soldier.

ELMER ELLSWORTH DEATH RELICS WITH GIFT LETTER.

by Garth's Auctioneers & Appraisers

May 15, 2015, 12:00 PM EST

Delaware, OH, USA

Estimated Price: $800 - $1,200

Description: ELMER ELLSWORTH DEATH RELICS WITH GIFT LETTER. Dated Washington, June 5, 1861, addressed to Ben Hopkins, Newton Upper Falls, Massachusetts. From Julius, addressed to "Bro Ben," the letter says, "Enclosed is a piece of the carpet on which Col Ellsworth fell when he was killed by Jackson in the Marshall house in Alexandria...I send also a piece of the secession flag staff." Retains the original envelope from Congressman E.H. Rollins, and accompanies a small scrap of flooring, and three fragments of wood, one of which is supposed to be that which Julius refers to in his letter. Elmer Ellsworth (1837-1861) was an ambitious young man whose rise to prominence was cut short on May 24, 1861 when he became the first Union soldier killed in the Civil War. He grew up in Illinois and studied law in Chicago where he also mustered the Cadet Attachment to the 60th Illinois Militia. A Springfield attorney named Abraham Lincoln hired young Ellsworth as a clerk in 1860, and Ellsworth followed Lincoln to Washington in 1861. Shortly thereafter, he moved to New York and raised the 11th New York Volunteers, modeling their training, and their uniforms, on the Algerian and French troops fighting in North Africa, called the Zouaves. Having recruited firemen for his unit, Ellsworth nicknamed them the Fire Zouaves. On May 24, 1861, Ellsworth and his Fire Zouaves began their occupation of Alexandria, Virginia. There they encountered a large Confederate flag hanging over the Marshall House inn. In Ellsworth's determined attempt to take down the flag, he was gunned down by innkeeper James Jackson, who was promptly killed by Zouave Corporal James Brownell. Ellsworth immediately became a martyr for the Union cause, inspiring songs and poetry, and a nation of patriotic souvenir-collectors began seeking out photographs and autographs of the fallen soldier.

TWO HALF PLATE DAGUERREOTYPES OF US REPRESENTATIVE PETER WILSON STRADER AND HIS FAMILY BY JAMES PRESLEY BALL.

by Garth's Auctioneers & Appraisers

May 15, 2015, 12:00 PM EST

Delaware, OH, USA

Estimated Price: $2,000 - $4,000

Description: TWO HALF PLATE DAGUERREOTYPES OF US REPRESENTATIVE PETER WILSON STRADER AND HIS FAMILY BY JAMES PRESLEY BALL. Cincinnati, Ohio, ca.1855. In one portrait is Peter W. Strader, his wife, Cornelia Frances Hubbard Strader, their eldest son, Jacob, and their second son, William M.; in the other portrait is Cornelia's niece, Fanny Smith, and two of the Straders' daughters, Julia and Mary. In one leather case (hinges now separated), each brass mat with Ball's stamp, and accompanied by 19th-century handwritten identifications. Strader (1818-1881) was born in New Jersey and moved to Lebanon, Ohio, as a child. In 1835, he was in Cincinnati working in the steamboat industry as a clerk and engineer, and later as a ticket agent for the Little Miami Railroad. He served one term as a Democrat in the House of Representatives from 1869-1871, after which he moved to Ashtabula. Ball (1825-1904) was born in Virginia and learned the daguerrean trade from another African-American in Boston, John Bailey. He moved to Cincinnati in 1845 and found little success, so he traveled for a couple of years before returning to the Queen City in 1847, now partnering with his brother, Thomas. Ball had a successful career in Cincinnati until the 1870s when he moved throughout the South and West, finally relocating to Hawaii in 1902, just two years before he died. Based on the age of Strader's children, these portraits were likely taken about 1855, a time when African-American artist Robert S. Duncanson was working in Ball's studio, retouching and coloring photographs.

Description: Oil on canvas, relinedItaly, 17th CenturyCircle of Benedetto Gennari (1633 -1715) – Italian Baroque painterGilt stucco frameDimensions: 119 x 91 cmProvenance: Private Collection, EuropeExotic Queen and Femme Fatale - Cleopatra has inspired numerous artists from the Renaissance onwardsThe present depiction of the dying Cleopatra is the work of a painter from the circle of Benedetto Gennari, a student of Guercino (1591-1666). Gennari mainly depicted allegorical and mythological themes, and he was also a master of portraits. Gennari has often visited the subject of Cleopatra (69 BC - 30 BC). She was the last queen of ancient Egypt. Even such important figures such as Caesar and Mark Antony succumbed to her charm. According to ancient sources, Cleopatra died by a snake bite. In the present depiction, the dramatic event was implemented through the strategic use of light and shadow.The painting is well presented. The canvas has been relined. The paint surface has been consolidated to the background and is thin in parts. Small scattered areas of retouching affect the surface. Inspection under UV light reveals retouching to the flesh tones, the background and the costume. Die gilt stucco frame shows light wear consistent with age and use. The overall dimensions, framed, are 132 x 102.5 cm, and the stretcher measures 119 x 91 cm.Benedetto Gennari II (1633-1715) Benedetto Gennari belonged to a dynasty of painters. His teacher Guercino was a grandson of Benedetto Gennari I (1563-1658). In 1672, Gennari II went to Paris at the court of King Louis XIV, and received numerous commissions. In 1674, he moved to London and became court painter to Charles II of England and his successor James II. When James II was dethroned, Gennari followed him to the court in Saint-Germain-en-Laye. In 1692, Benedetto Gennari returned to Bologna. Shipping costs excl. statutory VAT and plus 2,5% (+VAT) shipping insurance.

A Springfield attorney named Abraham Lincoln hired young Ellsworth as a clerk in 1860, and Ellsworth followed Lincoln to Washington in 1861. Shortly thereafter, he moved to New York and raised the 11th New York Volunteers, modeling their training, and their uniforms, on the Algerian and French troops fighting in North Africa, called the Zouaves. Having recruited firemen for his unit, Ellsworth nicknamed them the Fire Zouaves. On May 24, 1861, Ellsworth and his Fire Zouaves began their occupation of Alexandria, Virginia. There they encountered a large Confederate flag hanging over the Marshall House inn. In Ellsworth's determined attempt to take down the flag, he was gunned down by innkeeper James Jackson, who was promptly killed by Zouave Corporal James Brownell. Ellsworth immediately became a martyr for the Union cause, inspiring songs and poetry, and a nation of patriotic souvenir-collectors began seeking out photographs and autographs of the fallen soldier.

James Ensor Belgian, 1860-1949 Vierge et Mondaine, circa 1933   Signed Ensor (ll) Pastel on paper ...

by Doyle New York

May 5, 2015, 11:00 AM EST

New York, NY, USA

Estimated Price: $15,000 - $25,000

Description: James Ensor Belgian, 1860-1949 Vierge et Mondaine, circa 1933 Signed Ensor (ll) Pastel on paper 8 x 11 1/4 inches (20.3 x 28.5 cm) Provenance: Acquired in Belgium in the 1950's Thence by descent In this light-filled pastel, the artist assembles objects he gathered together in the attic studio he occupied for most of his life, above the family's antique and souvenir shop in Ostend, Belgium. A crowned figure of a Virgin dominates the scene on one side and a dainty female figure in a purple gown on the other. The table is laid with vases of flowers, books, shells, a puppet whose deflated body drapes over the table and a figurine with a carnival-mask lying on its back. The outwardly peaceful arrangement is upset by the presence of an Asian skeleton mask which appears ready to devour the recumbent figurine. The puppet is the same one that Ensor used in his painting Still Life with Chinoiserie (Xavier Tricot, James Ensor Catalogue Raisonne of the Paintings, 1992, vol. II 1902-1941, no. 576). Ensor's world was inhabited by demons and dreams, from his early memories of his grandmother wearing a frightening Carnival mask to the yearly Carnival revels in Ostend. The artist's early work was filled with dark bourgeois interiors, but his palette lightened in response to avant-garde movements. Ensor remembered that his childhood was spent in the family shop: ...surrounded by the curiosities from the sea and the splendours of mother-of-pearl with a thousand iridescent gleams and bizarre skeletons, monsters and marine plants. The proximity of these wonders, the colours, this light-filled gleaming opulence, undoubtedly helped turn me into a painter in love with colour and sensitive to the dazzling play of light. [Xavier Tricot, James Ensor, Life and Work, The Complete Paintings, Brussels, 2009, p. 13] The pastel is a version of the oil Vierge et Mondaine, circa 1933 in the Fine Arts Museum in Bilbao, Spain. We are very grateful to the Ensor Advisory Committee for their assistance in dating and cataloguing this pastel.We have received a report from the Committee discussing the date and motifs of this work, which is available on request.

A sculpted marble model after the 'Hope Isis'

by Dreweatts & Bloomsbury

May 27, 2015, 2:00 PM GMT

Mayfair, United Kingdom

Estimated Price: £20,000 - £30,000

Description: A sculpted marble model after the 'Hope Isis', a 1st-2nd century AD archaistic marble of the Romano-Egyptian earth goddess, 20th century, the standing figure expertly and faithfully carved after the Antique, portrayed standing and wearing chiton and himation over her voluptuous form, the left breast exposed beneath the folds of her himation draped diaphanously, the head and forearms missing in the manner of the original, 155cm high The famed 'Hope Isis' was originally secured by Sir William Hamilton, the diplomat, antiquarian, archaeologist and vulcanologist, whilst serving as British Ambassador to the Kingdom of Naples . Hamilton could reasonably be described as having been obsessed with collecting antiquities and his buying habits nearly bankrupted him more than once. His collection was highly important though and he negotiated its sale in entirety in 1771 to the British Museum, but on his return to Naples he found it difficult to stop amassing further antiquities In 1798, as Hamilton's posting drew to a close he organised for the shipment of his replenished collection of antiquities and Magna Graecia vases back to England, (a small part of the second vase collection being lost when HMS Colossus foundered off the Scilly Isles). In financial trouble again, Hamilton attempted to negotiate for the sale of the surviving part of the second collection to the British Museum, but this time was unsuccessful. The compulsive collector was forced to have the whole collection catalogued for sale at Mr James Christie's auction house, when at the eleventh hour Thomas Hope (1769-1831) stepped in and purchased the lot. The Roman marble of Isis that the version offered here so finely reproduces was part of that collection On Hope'a death ownership of the Isis passed through his family descendants, being offered for sale at Christie's again in July 1917, after which it graced various private collections before coming to auction one last time, this time at Sothebys New York in 2004.
