Red-Breasted Merganser Drake With Open Bill

Lot 93: Red-Breasted Merganser Drake With Open Bill

by Copley Fine Art Auctions

July 25, 2014, 11:00 AM EST

Plymouth, MA, USA

Estimated Price: $350,000 - $450,000

Description: "Maine's greatest and most prolific carver was Augustus Aaron "Gus" Wilson... Wilson had few equals among decoy makers as a sculptor, only his contemporary Ira Hudson in Virginia carved so wide a variety of forms. Wilson carved both heads and bodies freehand, holding the piece of wood in his hands, and this approach allowed him the tactile immediacy that characterizes his work. His best birds are at once powerful and imaginative." -Robert Shaw, Bird Decoys of North America Merganser decoys have always held a special place amongst carvers and collectors of decoys and folk art. The species' animated forms, pronounced crests, and striking plumage lend themselves to artistic designs of virtually endless interpretations. From the earliest carvers of wooden decoys centuries ago to present day carvers, makers have been captivated by these seemingly playful diving birds. As collectors share this appreciation, many of the world-record auction results for top-tier carvers have come from merganser decoys, including such prestigious makers as Lothrop Holmes (1824-1899), Ira Hudson (1873-1949), and Captain Charles Osgood (1820-1886). Wilson was born "Down East," on Mount Desert Island, Maine. Though he is foremost remembered as a carver, Wilson was also a boatbuilder, waterman, outdoorsman, and a lighthouse keeper. He was an attendant to a number of Maine's lighthouses, including the Great Duck Island Light, Goose Rocks Station on Fox Island, Two Lights Station on Cape Elizabeth, Marshall Point Light at Port Clyde, and lastly Spring Point Light in Casco Bay. Wilson's interests were by no means limited to decoys. He carved a variety of songbirds, decoratives, weathervanes, and big cats. A pair of Wilson tigers is featured in the American Identities exhibit, on display as a part of the permanent collection at the Brooklyn Museum in Brooklyn, New York. This merganser sculpture epitomizes the decoy as American folk art. In 1992, the Maine-based firm Gary Guyette and Frank Schmidt Inc. stated, "It is certainly the finest Gus Wilson ever offered at auction," and also simply described it as, "the best merganser." The decoy later appeared on the front cover of Decoy Magazine's 1992 Year in Review after setting a new world record at auction for the maker. One of the pinnacle decoys to ever be offered at public auction, this boldly carved merganser features an exceptionally rendered cocked-back and turned head, along with raised-wing and uplifted-tail carving. The delicately carved open bill design is a treatment virtually never seen intact in working decoys and gives the bird an almost smiling air. Wilson's attention to anatomy is commendable, with the very tip of the upper bill slightly curved and the inside of the lower bill accurately painted red. The intricate bill's survival is remarkable given the bird's use as a hunting decoy. The bird measures over sixteen and one-half inches in length, and seven inches in both width and height. The two-piece construction features a prodigious four-and-one-half-inch by two-and-one-half-inch inletted head with a canted and scribed fit. It features pinched breast carving, tack eyes, full cheeks, and eyes grooves that taper to a pointed crest. The bottom displays original rigging with a screw eye and a pad-style weight. "Gus had a broadness of interest and artist's eye that allowed him to come up with birds of such merit that they rivaled the best of the others... Gus Wilson looked at waterfowl much the way the Ward brothers did. There was a similarity in their ability to capture an unusual pose and to produce a decoy that continues to enthrall..." -Maine decoy author and historian, Captain John Dinan.

Condition Report: In excellent original paint with gunning wear, a rub on the left wing, and an imperfection original to the carving under the left side of the tail.
