by Swann Auction Galleries

June 4, 2015, 1:30 PM EST

Estimated Price: $1,500 - $2,500

Description: BENJAMIN WEST Study of a Scull (Memento Mori). Pencil on cream wove paper. 220x260 mm; 8 5/8x10 1/4 inches. Born in Springfield, Pennsylvania, in a house that now sits on the campus of Swarthmore College, West (1738-1820) was among the most prominent, pre-Revolutionary, 18th-century American artists. With financial assistance from wealthy Philadelphia businessmen, he traveled to Italy in 1760 to pursue his artistic training and study the old masters, eventually arriving in England in 1763, where he established himself as a painter of historical scenes and portraits. Over the next few decades, West ascended to the upper eschelons of the English art hierarchy. He was appointed an official court painter by King George III in 1772 and became the second president of the nascent Royal Academy in London, following the inaugural presidency of Joshua Reynolds, in 1792. West's most famous painting The Death of General Wolfe, 1771, is now in the National Gallery of Canada, Ottawa.

GUY C. WIGGINS New York Skyline.

by Swann Auction Galleries

June 4, 2015, 1:30 PM EST

New York, NY, USA

Estimated Price: $70,000 - $100,000

Description: GUY C. WIGGINS New York Skyline. Oil on canvas. 630x760 mm; 24 3/4x30 inches. Signed and inscribed "N.A" in oil, lower left recto. Titled, signed and inscribed "N.A." in oil, verso. Acquired directly from the artist, thence by descent to the current owner. Wiggins (1883-1962) was born in Brooklyn to an artistic family. His father, Carleton Wiggins (1848-1942) was an accomplished painter and provided his son's early training. Later, Wiggins junior became the youngest member of the summertime Old Lyme Art Colony in Connecticut, painting alongside his father and Childe Hassam, among others (by 1915, Carleton Wiggins has settled in Old Lyme permanently). Wiggins also studied at the National Academy of Design in New York, where his teachers included William Merritt Chase and Robert Henri. Throughout his long and successful career, Wiggins painted in an Impressionist style and became especially well known for his snowy New York cityscape canvases capturing the buildings and landmarks of Manhattan enveloped in wintry weather (see lots 115 and 116). Like Hassam, Wiggins combined the traditions of FrenchImpressionism, from the likes of Claude Monet and Camille Pissarro, with a bold, American style, influenced by his National Academy instructors Chase and Henri. Wiggins was extremely popular in America throughout the first half of the 1900s, aided by his approachable style and his strong artistic pedigree. At the age of only 20 he was the youngest artist to have a work included in the collection of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York. When he started painting snowy, New York city winter scenes in the mid-1910s his popularity surged (he claimed to have been trying to paint a summer landscape, not able to progress, when he looked out the window of his studio on a winter day and decided to paint the row of buildings across the street blurred by the snow storm). He moved to Connecticut and purchased a gentleman's farm outside of Old Lyme in the 1920s, though he continued to keep a studio in New York for the next couple of decades. In 1920, Wiggins established an eponymous art school in Connecticut, teaching in New Haven during the "off-season" and in Old Lyme during the summer. In 1937, he relocated his art school year-round to Essex, Connecticut, and would invite important artists such as George Luks, Eugene Higgins and Bruce Crane as visiting instructors during the summers. Wiggins died at age 79, while on vacation in St. Augustine, Florida, and is buried in Old Lyme.
