Lot 211: JEAN-MICHEL BASQUIAT AND KEITH HARING Graffiti Jacket.

by Swann Auction Galleries

May 12, 2015, 1:30 PM EST

New York, NY, USA

Description: JEAN-MICHEL BASQUIAT AND KEITH HARING Graffiti Jacket. Pelt-tip pen and ink on black Bonwit Teller leather jacket, circa 1984. 840x540 mm; 33x21 1/4 inches. This jacket serves as a "who's who" of the downtown New York City street art scene in the 1980s. As a door girl for the Danceteria VIP room "Congo Bill," the owner of this jacket helped originate the idea of tagged clothing in the early 1980s by inviting her social contacts to inscribe her accessories (see also lots 209, 210, 213 and 214). With Basquiat's "crown" and "s" in gold, left recto, and in silver, upper right recto, and Haring's neon green Three Eyed Smiling Face sticker, lower right recto. Additional tags include a large drawing Acid Rain in silver felt tip pen and ink, verso, by Shadi (David Scilken), a spray can by Futura 2000 (Leonard McGurr), as well as Ad-Rock (Adam Horowitz of the Beastie Boys). The b-boy group Rock Steady Crew is referenced in a tag by Crazy Legs (Richard Colón), and RP3 refers to his connection with Madonna in "Boy Toy" tags. Also tagged by graffiti artists CEY ADAMS, ENERGY (John Starr), FAB FIVE FREDDY (Fred Brathwaite), KANO (Dante Ross), DR. REVOLT, STASH (Josh Franklin), ZEPHYR (Andrew Witten), JIGS CITY (Julie Ashcraft) and others.

Description: AutographsThomas L. McKenney's Handwritten 1848 Letter to Dolley MadisonTHOMAS L. McKENNEY (1785-1858). Superintendent of Indian Affairs under President James Madison in 1816 and Author the historic 3-Volume "History of the Indian Tribes".December 29, 1848-Dated, Historic Content Autograph Letter Signed, "Tho L McKenney" addressed to Dolley Madison (Prior First Lady as Wife of President James Madison), New York City, 3 pages, measuring 7.5" x 10", Choice Very Fine. This personal and historical content Letter partially reads:"... I hope to be excused for taxing your memory... the only Interview I ever had with Mr. Madison, upon any subject connected with General Armstrong, was on F. Street, (he being on horseback) when I was Commissioned by General Smith, in Company with Major Williams to report to the President, the state of revolt in which the Troops on Windmill Hill, were thrown, on the Appearance of General Armstrong among them, after the Conflagration of the Capitol... It is for History I ask this Information -- as well as to shew before it shall have passed to the final record, the falsehood of connecting me with this 'Hanson and Bavie' Committee..."Aside from some expected light even tone, one small perforation this important Letter is in very nice overall condition. A few unrelated pencil notations and a brief red manuscript biography of McKenney appear on the blank back panel. The Handwritten text and signature are very clear and easily readable being upon clean period wove paper. A wonderful addition to any historical Autograph collection combining Thomas L. McKenney's Handwritten Letter and sent to none other than Dolley Madison!Thomas L. McKenney (1785-1858) was a Georgetown merchant, was appointed Superintendent of Indian Affairs in 1816 by President James Madison. He went on to author the 3-volume "History of the Indian Tribes" and maintained a close relationship with the Madison Family.Thomas Loraine McKenney (1785-1859) started out his career as a merchant. In 1815 he ran a commission store near the ferry wharf in Georgetown. He was also on the board of directors of the Bank of Columbia, in Georgetown, with John Cox, John Threlkeld, and Henry Foxall. In 1816 McKenney secured a Federal appointment as Superintendent of Indian Trade. The Bureau of Indian Trade had its office in the old Bank of Columbia building at 3210 M Street, N.W.McKenney was appointed by President Madison to be Superintendent of Indian Trade, April 2, 1816, to replace John Mason, who had resigned (Intelligencer, April 9, 1816); he knew nothing of Indians, but was well-versed in trade."My commission bears date the 2d day of April, 1816. I entered upon the duties of my office on the 12th of the same month. I had for some time, nearly two years before, disposed of my mercantile establishments, of which I was owner of two in Georgetown, and held an interest, till about the period of my appointment, in a store in Washington, under the firm of J. C. Hall & Co." (McKenney, Thomas L., Memoirs, Official and Personal: Thomas L. McKenney, 1846)In those days delegations of Indians that came to Washington generally stayed in hotel rooms; the beds had been removed to accommodate their preference for sleeping on the ground. Some of these representatives of southern and western tribes also visited Weston, McKenney's farm on Georgetown Heights.In 1820, Sans Nerf, a chief of the Great Osages, and two companions, were there. In the winter of 1821-22 a delegation of Pawnee, Sauk, Fox, Menominee, Miami, Sioux, and Chippewa Indians came to the farm, and in 1824, Cherokee chief Elijah Hicks was there.The Factory System of government trading posts involved commodities as coffee, sugar, lead, salt, penknives, northwest blankets, calico, and strouding (coarse woolen cloth used in the Indian trade). What came back were furs. "Thomas L. McKenney - furs, peltries for sale at the Superintendant of Indian trade in Georgetown". (Alexandria Gazette, March 19, October 16, 1817; November 10, 1818)The Factory System ended in 1822, over opposition by the John Jacob Astor's American Fur Company, and by manufacturers and merchants who resented McKenney, and the Georgetown merchants he favored. One such merchant was John Cox, importer and banker, and later mayor of Georgetown. Cox loaned money to McKenney to buy Weston, and McKenney bought from Cox for the Indian trade, nearly to the exclusion of other merchants. (McKenney, Thomas L., Memoirs, Official and Personal: Thomas L. McKenney, 1846)From 1824 to 1830, McKenney served as Superintendent of Indian Affairs. While his upbringing as a merchant had no doubt prepared him for the earlier position, supervising the Indian Trade, his qualifications to be an architect of Indian policy are harder to picture.McKenney's transactions with the "civilized" southern tribes had, at one time, persuaded him that Indians might be able to adopt white values, and McKenney made several experiments along these lines of his own (albeit at government expense).In 1818, James Lawrence MacDonald, son of a Choctaw woman and a white man, raised by Baltimore Quakers, came to Weston, McKenney's farm on Georgetown Heights, and worked for him at the War Department. In 1827 McKenney brought two Creek boys back to Washington to be educated. One was William Barnard, son of Major Timpoochee Barnard, an ally of Andrew Jackson in the Creek War. A boy named Lee Compere was William Barnard's companion. The boys remained with McKenney for three years. Finally, in 1828, Dougherty Colbert, age 15, the son of a Chickasaw chief, came to live at Weston, to attend school in Georgetown. Colbert was praised by McKenney for losing the Chickasaw language!As wrong-headed as such experiments must appear to us, in McKenney's view the alternatives were worse: Indians who did not assimilate, or move beyond the Mississippi River, were doomed. In 1829 McKenney wrote: "We believe if the Indians do not emigrate, and fly the causes, which are fixed in themselves, and which have proved so destructive in the past, they must perish!" (Stuart Banner, How The Indians Lost Their Land, p.209)Although these views would seem to conform to those generally ascribed to Andrew Jackson, in 1830 McKenney was dismissed for not being in harmony with the Indian policy of the Jackson administration. At the same time President Jackson ordered the War Department to remove McKenney's Indian boys from school and return them to their people.McKenney's dismissal ushered in the second phase of his career. Perhaps as early as 1816 McKenney had imagined an Indian archive, which would be "preserved for the information of future generations and long after the Indians will have been no more". During the years McKenney worked in the War Department he had made it standard procedure that members of Indian delegations would, at War Department expense, have their likenesses recorded in oil paint. By 1830 the artist Charles Bird King had painted about a hundred and twenty portraits, which McKenney did not permit any other artists to copy; his intention, from the start, had been to publish them himself.Shortly before being fired by President Jackson, McKenney announced plans for the portfolio of hand-colored lithographs of these portraits, "with biographical sketches and anecdotes of the principal chiefs". McKenney moved to Philadelphia, where his publisher was, and had the paintings sent to him one at a time, to be copied in oil for the lithographer to work from.The text, which was to consist of history and individual biographies, was not written by McKenney -- who knew "knew nothing but the names", according to his co-author James Hall -- but by Hall, based on interviews with Indian agents, traders and soldiers, but not -- it need hardly be said -- with Indians.The History of the Indian Tribes of North America, by Thomas McKenney and James Hall, which came out in three volumes between 1836 and 1844, is now considered a landmark of American ethnography, and one of the major American publications of the nineteenth century.Sources: Historical Sketches of Glover Park, Upper Georgetown, and Georgetown Heights by Carlton FletcherHerman J.

Description: Vintage 1920's or 1930's Era Vincent Zito Caricature of John D. Rockefeller Zito (1900–1966) was a talented artist most famous for his caricatures of the celebrities he encountered throughout his life in both Europe and America, primarily working in Paris and Palm Beach. Original sketchbook used by famed caricaturist Vincenzo Maria Zito during the 1930s and 40s while in Paris, measuring approximately 8 x 10.5, containing over 80 caricatures of celebrities and notables, many of them signed by the subject. John Davison Rockefeller, Sr. (July 8, 1839 May 23, 1937) was an American business magnate and philanthropist. He was a co-founder of the Standard Oil Company, which dominated the oil industry and was the first great U.S. business trust. Rockefeller revolutionized the petroleum industry, and along with other key contemporary industrialists such as Andrew Carnegie, defined the structure of modern philanthropy. In 1870, he founded Standard Oil Company and actively ran it until he officially retired in 1897. Rockefeller founded Standard Oil as an Ohio partnership with his brother William along with Henry Flagler, Jabez A. Bostwick, chemist Samuel Andrews, and a silent partner, Stephen V. Harkness. The inside cover, and other pages, of the sketch book which contains Zito's information has been imaged to this listing. HOWEVER, THESE PAGES ARE NOT INCLUDED IN THIS LISTING WITH THE CARICATURE.
