William Abbott Willard spent nearly his whole life in Hartford, Connecticut, where he lived in a house with Mark Twain as his neighbor on one side and Harriet Beecher Stowe on the other side.

He often carved cane handles in the forms of distinguished gentlemen's heads, and he usually added an inscription explaining the occasion the cane commemorated. Most of his canes were carved from twigs he gathered on the grounds of Mark Twain's property, and he presented many to Twain and Stowe.

JEROME HOWES, American, b. 1955,

Lot 1241: JEROME HOWES, American, b. 1955, "Life Boat CG 36500 and the Pendleton"., Oil on masonite, 18.5" x 24". Framed.

by Eldred's

August 1, 2014, 10:00 AM EST

East Dennis, MA, USA

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

Description: JEROME HOWES American, b. 1955 "Life Boat CG 36500 and the Pendleton". Signed lower right "Jerome Howes". Also signed and titled verso. In what is often described as one of the Coast Guard's greatest rescues, four young Guardsmen manning a 36-foot lifeboat saved thirty-two crewmen off the Pendleton as it floundered ten miles off the coast of Chatham, Massachusetts in sixty-foot seas during a Nor'easter in February 1952. The Pendleton had broken in half during the storm and the bow section sank, taking with it the captain and seven crewmen. The remaining crew was trapped on the listing stern section and unable to send an SOS. Once the ship was spotted from shore, the lifeboat was dispatched, sometime around 6 p.m. It lost its compass and its windshield blew in, but the boat was able to traverse the treacherous Chatham Bar and find the Pendleton with only a searchlight for illumination. The Pendleton crew climbed down a Jacob's ladder and jumped onto the deck of the CG 36500 while both vessels and the ladder were wildly thrown about by the wind and waves. One member of the Pendleton crew was crushed to death when he was caught between the lifeboat and the ship's propeller, but the remainder made it onto the lifeboat just as the ship sank. The over-loaded lifeboat, with only a 90-hp engine and now carrying thirty-six passengers instead of its intended fifteen, headed for shore, hoping to run aground on a beach. Remarkably the Guardsmen found their way back into Chatham Harbor. The entire CG 36500 crew received the Gold Lifesaving Medal for their heroism. Oil on masonite, 18.5" x 24". Framed.

LITHOGRAPH BY ARTIST HENRI MATISSE

Lot 46G: LITHOGRAPH BY ARTIST HENRI MATISSE

by Wilson Fine Art & Antiques

August 3, 2014, 1:00 PM MST

Boulder, CO, USA

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

Description: LITHOGRAPH BY HENRI MATISSE, BEARING THE SIGNATURE IN A LIMITED EDITION TITLED "NU ASSIS, BRAS GAUCHE SUR LA TETE", CIRCA 1929. Matisse?s discovery of his true profession came about in an unusual manner. Following an attack of appendicitis, he began to paint in 1889, when his mother had brought him art supplies during the period of convalescence. He said later, ?From the moment I held the box of colors in my hands, I knew this was my life. I threw myself into it like a beast that plunges towards the thing it loves.? Matisse?s mother was the first to advise her son not to adhere to the ?rules? of art, but rather listen to his own emotions. Matisse was so committed to his art that he later extended a warning to his fianc�©e, Am�©lie Parayre, whom he later married: ?I love you dearly, mademoiselle; but I shall always love painting more.? Matisse had discovered "a kind of paradise" as he later described it. His drastic change of profession deeply disappointed his father. Two years later in 1891 Matisse returned to Paris to study art at the Acad�©mie Julian and became a student of William-Adolphe Bouguereau. After a discouraging year at the Acad�©mie Julian, he left in disgust at the overly perfectionist style of teaching there. Afterwards he trained with Gustave Moreau, an artist who nurtured more progressive leanings. In both studios, as was usual, students drew endless figure studies from life. From Bouguereau, he learned the fundamental lessons of classical painting. His one art-schooled technical standby, almost a fetish, was the plumb line. No matter how odd the angles in any Matisse, the verticals are usually dead true. Moreau was a painter who despised the "art du salon", so Matisse was destined, in a certain sense, to remain an "outcast" of the art world. He initially failed his drawing exam for admission to the �?cole des Beaux-Arts, but persisted and was finally accepted. Matisse began painting still-lives and landscapes in the traditional Flemish style, at which he achieved reasonable proficiency. Most of his early works employ a dark palette and tend to be gloomy. Chardin was one of Matisse's most admired painters having made four the French still-life master paintings in the Louvre. Although he executed numerous copies after the old masters he also studied contemporary art. His first experimentations earned him a reputation as the rebellious member of his studio classes. In 1896, Matisse was elected as an associate member of the Soci�©t�© Nationale, which meant that each year he could show paintings at the Salon de la Soci�©t�© without having to submit them for review. In the same year he exhibited 5 paintings in the salon of the Soci�©t�© Nationale des Beaux-Arts, and the state bought two of his paintings. This was the first and almost only recognition he received in his native country during his lifetime. In 1897 and 1898, he visited the painter John Peter Russell on the island Belle �?le off the coast of Brittany. Russell introduced him to Impressionism and to the work of Van Gogh who had been a good friend of Russell but was completely unknown at the time. Matisse's style changed completely, and he would later say "Russell was my teacher, and Russell explained color theory to me." Matisse also observed Russell's and other artists' stable marriages. This probably influenced him to find in Am�©lie Noellie Parayre, his future wife, his anchor.
