Description: LITHOGRAPH BY HENRI MATISSE, BEARING THE SIGNATURE TITLED "ODALISQUE A LA JUPE DE TULLE", CIRCA 1923 . 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.

Estimated Price: $2,000 - $3,000

Description: A possible rigmate to the two other two-piece shorebird decoys in this sale, lot 112.

Typical of Long Island carvings, this decoy has a ridge on the top of its tail. Verbal history recorded by the consignor states that this shorebird could be attributed to John Henry Verity, it was acquired by Philip Brasher (1813-1879) from Verity, and used by Rex Brasher (1869-1960), the well-known bird illustrator and artist. J. P. Giraud, Jr's 1844 book "The Birds of Long Island" cites his friend Philip Brasher extensively and the renowned guide John Verity.

Lot 29: Luftwaffe Hans Rossbach signed collection. We have

by Chaucer Covers & Auctions

July 25, 2014, 5:00 PM GMT

Folkestone, United Kingdom

Estimated Price: £5,000 - £7,000

Description: Luftwaffe Hans Rossbach signed collection. We have just acquired a complete set of the Hans Rossbach Luftwaffe aces collection. This is quite a incredible set of covers with over 270 signature of top Luftwaffe VIP's. It would be a great shame to break up these wonderful collectors items so we would like to sell it complete. It took Hans over three years to assemble back in the 1970's. He personally visited all aces including great names like Willy Messerschmitt, Werner Von Braun, Herman Obarth, Albert Speer, Erich Hartmann, Adolf Galland, Gerd Barkhorn plus many more. There is even a cover signed by five members of Richthofen's original flying circus. Many of the individual covers are now worth well over £200 with the Von Braun and Messerschmitt now worth £1500. Other rare signatures include Rudel, Batz, Hanna Reitsch, Hans Baur (Hitlers pilot), Matoni, Skorzaney, and Kurt Tank.

Joe Page Cut Signature Matted with a Signature Certified by JSA James Spence Authentication

Lot 46: Joe Page Cut Signature Matted with a Signature Certified by JSA James Spence Authentication

by Piedmont

July 26, 2014, 11:00 AM EST

Philadelphia, PA, USA

Description: JSA Joe Page cut signature matted with a photograph. This item measures 8 x 10 inches. Joseph Francis Page (October 28, 1917 ? April 21, 1980), nicknamed Fireman and The Gay Reliever, was a Major League Baseball relief pitcher. Page, who was left-handed, played with the New York Yankees from 1944 to 1950 and with the Pittsburgh Pirates in 1954. Joe DiMaggio?s nickname for his happy-go-lucky, blue-eyed friend was the Gay Reliever (when gay meant carefree). The Yankee Clipper drew the line, however, when it came to heavy drinking. He often chided Joe about how his carousing hurt might hurt the team one day.

Timberlake Turkeys

Lot 416: Timberlake Turkeys

by Copley Fine Art Auctions

July 26, 2014, 11:00 AM EST

Plymouth, MA, USA

Estimated Price: $6,000 - $9,000

Description: Robert Abbett, born in Indiana in 1926, is best known for his depictions of sporting dogs, fly-fishing, and western life. He began his career as an advertising illustrator, attending night and weekend classes at both the Chicago Academy of Fine Art and the American Academy of Art where he found himself drawn to editorial and advertising art. In 1953 he moved from Chicago to Connecticut to be closer to the editorial markets. There he illustrated for "Argosy," "The Woman's Home Companion," "Sports Afield," "Reader's Digest," and "True" magazines. He also worked with several West Coast motion picture studios and drew covers for many of the leading paperback publishers. Robert Abbett was commissioned to paint his first animal portrait of "Luke" in 1970. It was with this painting that he transitioned from working as an illustrator to a full-time gallery artist. Abbett is recognized as a master in the field of sporting dog portraiture. His popularity and appeal have been attributed to allowing his subjects to remain individuals. In his dog images, for example, he incorporates a pose, or an expression, that makes the animal appear real and endearing. Abbett also spends significant time creating the "right" background for his images. By setting the perimeters of the story, the background supplies much of the narrative. Using his impressionistic style, Abbett often suggests time and space without giving all of the details. The intention is to draw viewers in and give them the opportunity to complete the picture with their own experiences.

July 26, 2014, 10:00 AM PST

Santa Fe, NM, USA

Estimated Price: $5,000 - $6,000

Description: Tarkay Limited Edition Serigraph Hand signed by the artist. Custom framed. Includes certificate of authenticity. Approx 24x28 inches.

Condition Report: This is in excellent condition. Hand signed by the artist. Includes certificate of authenticity. Tarkay drew upon the entire realm of art history in a body of work that is not only aesthetically agreeable and compositionally seductive, but a cultural phenomenon responsible for countless love letters, innumerable nights of passion and incalculable furtive glances - the very substance of visual poetry. Todays roots as a painter take hold in the decisive years of modern art. The bright colors and flat patterns build on the paths forged by Matisse, Mouly, and the Fauves.Tarkay constructed a perspective and then took it away. The paintings go through an abstract transformation, the perspective dissolves into colors and shapes, her face remains, and the world reconstructs around her. There is an ancient mystery in the work of Tarkay that must be discovered for oneself. Tarkay dove deep into history, and brought up pearls for our times. The quality of his line was organic, the quality of his woman, his art, was magic. Tarkay died 2012.
