Redheads in Flight

Lot 398: Redheads in Flight

by Copley Fine Art Auctions

July 26, 2014, 11:00 AM EST

Plymouth, MA, USA

Estimated Price: $300,000 - $500,000

Description: Frank Benson spent his boyhood hunting and fishing on the Essex County marshes near his Salem, Massachusetts, home. He was fascinated by ornithology and a great admirer of John James Audubon, often spending hours visiting the Museum of Comparative Zoology at Harvard. When he entered the School of the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston, Benson's goal was to be an ornithological illustrator. His first known oils are of a rail and a snipe. However, two years of study at the Academie Julian in Paris changed his mind. When Benson returned to Boston, he built his career on finely crafted portraits and stunning interiors of models lit by the glow of a fire or the shimmer of lamplight. Yet he never forgot his first love, the birds that filled the air and the waters of his New England home. His earliest known exhibited painting of wildfowl was "Swan Flight," a large canvas depicting the decorative effect of white swans sweeping across a wide expanse of pearl gray sky. By the time it was seen in the galleries of Boston's St. Botolph Club in 1894, it had already been bought by Dr. Arthur Cabot, a close friend and fellow hunter. Such early oils of wildfowl are rare. For the next two decades, Benson only exhibited four paintings of birds.(i) This is not surprising. During those years, as co-director of Boston's Museum School, Benson began creating his stunning wash drawings of wildfowl and started producing the many etchings and drypoints that won him great fame and earned him the title, "Dean of the American Sporting Print." In addition, his sunlit, Impressionist paintings of his daughters posed against the summer skies of his island home in Maine were in such demand that they sold as quickly as they were finished. By 1916, Benson's children, whom he called his "homegrown models" were growing up and leaving home. That fall, he accompanied Arthur Cabot to Cabot's private hunting club on the shores of Lake Erie. It was a trip that would deeply affect his painting for years to come and was, in all likelihood, the setting for "Redheads in Flight." It is probably not coincidental that Benson chose to commemorate his first trip to Long Point with this masterful painting of the birds that surrounded him there. The island in the background of this oil adds a striking note to the work. It is a compositional device that Benson employed in a number of his etchings set at Long Point such as "Over Sunk Marsh" and "Sunset at Long Point" as well as in at least one oil, "Long Point Sunset," 1923 and several watercolors.(ii) Formally called The Long Point Company, the club, a collection of buildings elevated about four feet above the water on pilings and connected by a network of boardwalks, was founded on a broad peninsula of land by a group of Canadian businessmen in l866. The express purpose of the club was to keep their favorite hunting ground from being depleted by almost year-round hunting. "The Point looks like a Florida mangrove Key," Benson wrote in his hunting diary. "Just a few trees that appear to be growing out of the lake." Eager to get in a bit of shooting his first day there, Benson recalled, "We set decoys hurriedly as it was late, and the ducks came often but not quite near enough. I shot down twenty one and retrieved fifteen. . . The prettiest afternoon's shooting I ever had."(iii) It is clear from Benson's diaries that his experiences at Long Point were some of his most treasured memories. In letters home and in interviews, Benson frequently mentioned the beauty of the land and the excellence of the shooting. For the sheer overwhelming numbers of the birds that he saw, it appears that nothing surpassed those hunting grounds. "I saw such a sight today as I never expect to see again," Benson wrote. "When we started out, ducks rose in thousands and thousands all over the marsh and the whole sky was covered. . . . Thousands of Redheads and Canvasbacks were coming in from the North in lines and V's high up against the sky all the morning . . . the noise was like thunder."(iv) It was undoubtedly a scene such as this that inspired "Redheads in Flight." The viewer feels that he is not so much observing the painting as he is in it. One can almost feel the rush of the ducks wings and hear their calls. Ornithologist Roger Tory Peterson praised Benson as a painter of bird "pictures," paintings that focused on the birds' world, while noting that Audubon, who killed his subjects and wired them into position, was more a painter of bird "portraits." Yet, like an ornithologist, Benson was careful to depict both male and female in various attitudes of flight. In "Redheads in Flight," the ducks are what command immediate attention, yet the work also focuses on composition, light, and design, elements that Benson felt were critical in any painting. As a contemporary writer wrote, "Frank W. Benson has added something imperishable--an artist's dream [that Audubon] knew not; a knowledge of bird flight which places him in a class by himself."(v) Decades of observing birds permitted Benson to portray them in flight or at rest not only accurately, but also with grace and fluidity. As Benson once told a writer, "I try to make them part of the landscape in which they occur, rather than to describe them as specimens. What I most enjoy about them is their wildness." Noting that birds rarely pose for a picture, he said, "My pictures of wild-fowl are entirely the result of things seen in nature and drawn from memory."(vi) "Redheads in Flight" clearly evoked for Benson the wonderful memories he had of his days at Long Point both shooting and painting. "Long Point was a wonderful place to me for I never had such a chance to see so many kinds of ducks so close at hand," Benson once wrote to a collector. "I passed one whole day watching every duck that came to my decoys to see how he used his legs when dropping, recovering, rising, et. cetera and, instead of making the best of the shooting, I had a very profitable day in another way."(vii) -------------------- We are grateful to Faith Andrews Bedford, author of the biography "Frank W. Benson: American Impressionist," "The Sporting Art of Frank Benson", and "Impressionist Summers: Frank W. Benson's North Haven" for this essay. Endnotes: i It is very likely that a few others were sold out of his studio for, as he wrote to a dealer who wanted such a work, "If I choose to be patient I can sell them all in Boston. If I make one with figure or birds, it is commonly sold as soon as it is framed, and often before." In closing he added, "if I were to create any larger demand, I simply couldn't fill it." Frank W. Benson to Robert Macbeth. 22 February 1926, Macbeth Gallery Papers, Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Museum. ii At least seven prints have titles that locate their setting as Long Point.

Born in 1884 in what was then the Dakota Territory, Frank Stick spent his childhood hunting, fishing, and trapping. At the age of 17 he moved to Wisconsin where he worked as a hunting and fishing guide and supported himself by trapping in the winter. He produced sketches throughout this period along with written accounts of his explorations, many of which he sold to outdoors and sporting magazines. With their support, he was able to travel and adventure extensively throughout the Midwest, the Great Plains, the Rockies, and Montana. In 1904 Stick enrolled at the Chicago Institute of Art, selling a painting after only four months of classes. At the suggestion of his teacher, he traveled to Wilmington, Delaware, to study with famed illustrator Howard Pyle (1853-1911). After his training, Stick moved to Interlaken, New Jersey, where he had a successful career as an illustrator. His work appeared in magazines including "Colliers," "The Saturday Evening Post," "Sports Afield," and "Field and Stream," and he also illustrated multiple articles by Zane Grey in "Outdoor America." This painting, which is quintessential Stick, depicts a tense moment in the life of a besieged winter trapper. The lot is accompanied by a calendar reproduction from 1928, and the work captures the element of dramatic action for which the artist is known. The quality of the figures, the intensity of the action, and the dynamic composition of this important work led it to be chosen as the frontispiece in Michael Mordell's 2004 book on the artist, "Frank Stick: Splendid Painter of the Out-of-Doors." In 1929, Stick retired from the art world and dedicated himself to the outer banks in North Carolina, where he helped establish several state and federal parks to preserve the landscape. Today, the Frank Stick Memorial Art Show is held yearly in the area in his honor.

Description: Frank Lloyd Wright/Taliesin Architects (American, 1869 - 1959). "Vintage Frank Lloyd Wright/Taliesin Architects Designed Carpet from the Arizona Biltmore Hotel [01 "tile"] [Approximate size: 54" x 54" (4 1/2' x 4 1/2') square. The integral repeating design of the carpet consists of four green ?squares? with an ?arrow? through the middle of each square, pointing to the ?center.? Each one of the squares is approximately 27? square and four of them make the complete design, a ?tile.? The tile dimension is approximately 54 inches square (4 ½ feet x 4 ½ feet)]". Textile. The carpet has been professionally cleaned and bordered. Very good condition, with no holes, patches, stains, color bleeding, etc. Several minimal, virtually undetectable, professionally repaired tears. This carpet size is perfect for a wall hanging. It is also very impressive framed. Provenance: Arizona Biltmore Hotel, Phoenix, Arizona. Built in 1929 and known throughout the world as ?The Jewel of the Desert," the Biltmore resort was designed by Albert Chase MacArthur, with consulting from Frank Lloyd Wright and his Taliesin Architects, particularly on the brick design and general interior design, including the carpeting. Mr. Wright's carpet design was sent to the prestigious Wilton Carpet Manufacturing Company in Axminster, England, which used only the highest quality 100% wool available in its manufacture. In 1932 the carpet was installed throughout the hotel as an integral part of the overall interior design. On June 21st, 1973, a tragic fire led to the replacement of all the carpeting throughout the resort, of which our example is part (please see image of the carpet in place). The carpet was designed by Wright's Taliesin Architects based on a Wright drawing (dated by him in 1921) for the Second Imperial Hotel in Tokyo, constructed 1915-1923. "As classically correct today as the day it was created, Mr. Wright's modern use of line and rich jewel tones make this vintage carpet as modern and enduring as the Biltmore itself."
