Sartorius fecit' lower left on the edge of the table Dimensions: 92 x 72 cm Wooden frame: 104 x 83 cm Good condition A typical hunting still life of the artist. The current highest auction record for a similar oil painting by Sartorius is €18,000 The high artistic quality of the present painting by George William Sartorius (1759-1828) becomes evident especially in the plumage of the chicken and the sparrows as well as in the fur of the rabbit. The soft-looking surfaces contrast with the various, partly plain surfaces of the vegetables and the fish. The elaborate lighting enhances the three-dimensional effect of single elements in the painting.Condition: The color surface shows some craquelure and in places abrasion of the paint. The canvas has been relined. Inspection under UV light reveals various areas of retouching within the depiction and along the edges. Otherwise good overall impression. The frame has minor wear. The image dimensions are 92 x 72 cm, and the wooden frame measures 104 x 83 cm.George William Sartorius (1759-1828) George William Sartorius came from a dynasty of artists that portrayed mainly hunting scenes. George William specialized in animal depictions and still lifes. Between 1773 and 1779, he exhibited at the Society of Artists of Great Britain, which was modeled after the Paris Salon.

Toronto, ON, Canada

Description: MARY HIESTER REID, O.S.A., A.R.C.A.STILL LIFE WITH YELLOW ROSESoil on canvassigned and dated 1896 12.5 ins x 14.5 ins; 31.8 cms x 36.8 cms Literature:Brian Foss and Janice Anderson, Quiet Harmony: The Art of Mary Hiester Reid, Art Gallery of Ontario, 2000, cover for a related still life, reproduced in colour.Note:An exquisite sense of composition permeates the flower still-lifes, landscapes and interiors of Mary Hiester Reid. Painting what most appealed to her in her everyday life, Reid's canvases depict the domestic from a perspective of refinement, charm and grace. Mary Hiester Reid settled in the City of Toronto in 1885 with her future husband, fellow artist George Agnew Reid. They quickly became central figures within the arts community - Mary being one of the first women accepted into the Ontario Society of Artists and into the Royal Canadian Academy of Arts. In this still-life, four dulcet roses bow with the weight of their blossoms from the mouth of a vase. The background is a tracery of red petals and foliage - the remainder of the bouquet, setting the stage for the bright yellow flowers in the foreground. Estimate: $2,000-3,000

by Lempertz

March 18, 2015, 2:30 PM CET

Cologne, Germany

Estimated Price: €8,000 - €10,000

Description: This pair of works is traditionally thought to have been a wedding gift on occasion of the marriage of Egon VIII, Imperial Count of Fürstenberg-Heiligenberg (1588-1635) and Anna Maria Countess of Hohenzollern-Hechingen (1603-1652) in 1619. If this is true, the work would have been in the possession of this aristocratic family for four centuries, until 2013.The works can be attributed to the circle of the famous German still life painter Georg Flegel due to the close-up composition, viewed slightly from above, and the borrowing of several motifs from his repertoire.

HISTORIC INSCRIBED 1873 WINCHESTER RIFLE FROM BUFFALO BILL.

Lot 1196: HISTORIC INSCRIBED 1873 WINCHESTER RIFLE FROM BUFFALO BILL.

by James D. Julia

March 15, 2015, 10:00 AM EST

Fairfield, ME, USA

Estimated Price: $75,000 - $125,000

Description: This extremely important and historic Winchester SN #291 is the rarest first variation of the Winchester 1873 rifle. This gun includes rare early features such as hand engraved model designation and serial number on the lower tang "Model 1873, 291". The left sideplate appears engraved in the same hand "Presented To Major Frank North U.S.A. from Buffalo Bill". Frank North and William F. "Buffalo Bill" Cody had been great friends and fellow scouts since 1869. According to Buffalo Bill's biography concerning meeting North at Fort McPherson, in 1869, Cody states, "I made the acquaintance of Major Frank North and I found him and his officers perfect gentlemen, and we were all good friends from the start". There are numerous accounts in Cody's and North's biographies concerning their association. There are numerous accounts of Frank North's and Buffalo Bill's Indian fighting, scouting and friendship in massive accompanying files with this gun. This gun that was made early in 1873 and though factory letter does not state presentation, the inscription and provenance are impeccable. There is also known a Remington conversion revolver with Buffalo Bill presentation to North still in family of North descendants today. In a published memoir by Frank's brother Luther North, he states in an interview in the March 1927 issue of the American Rifleman, in an article titled The Truth About Wild Bill "we were in the cattle business in the '70s, after we quit 'Injuns' with Cody for a partner. One day, up on our ranch on North Platte, Bill and me were out back of the ranch house shooting our Winchesters, 1873 Model, 44 caliber, 8-squar magazine (just like subject gun). We struck up a 'tomatter' can and fired at it 50 yards off. Was we sober? You ask-absolutely. It was like the days around Fort McPherson as I was observing, 50 yards off, and Bill was missing it. Frank came out of the house and let go of all six shots, 44's, in his revolver and plugged the can five times out of six. He used at the time, one of a pair of Smith & Wesson Russian Model 44's. Cody walked off, and chucking his rifle up onto the dirt roof of the ranch house remarked I guess I won't shoot anymore today". About the time of the presentation of this gun, is about the time that William F. Cody was just becoming famous as "Buffalo Bill". He is mentioned in newspaper accounts as Buffalo Bill as early as January, 1873 and is thought to have received this nickname from the Grand Duke Alexis of Russia when Cody and George Custer took the Grand Duke hunting buffalo in 1872. Needless to say Cody was enamored enough with his new fame as "Buffalo Bill" to present his good friend Frank North using his new "sobriquet" which William F. "Buffalo Bill" Cody would now be known through history. At memorial services for Major Frank North, Buffalo Bill eulogized his partner as "one of the truest friends I ever had, he was a man on whom you could stake your life". This gun is in wonderful "as found" condition is one of the most historic Winchesters and the earliest known Winchester presented by William F. "Buffalo Bill" Cody. PROVENANCE: Frank North, North family descendants. Private Collection. CONDITION: This gun is very good overall, all matching. Bbl retains traces of finish being mostly gray/brown overall with scattered staining, pitting, nicks and dings. Rifling in bore still good and discernible with pitting. Magazine tube is smooth gray overall with scattered staining and pitting with small nicks and dings. Receiver and hammer retain tiny traces of case color turning silver/gray with areas of staining and pitting. Side plates are gray/silver with engraving crisp and discernible. Buttplate is gray overall with scattered staining and pitting especially at top toe. Stocks are sound and solid with scattered scratches, dings and dents. There is a 4" hairline crack starting at nosecap on right side of forestock and a 1" crack in same position on left side of forestock continuing back as can be seen in photos. The gun mechanically functions well and is complete with exception of left side nosecap screw and dustcover which are missing. The magazine tube bracket is loose at its dovetailed junction sight on barrel. 4-54482 JS102
