Pre-Columbian Copper Ball and Shell Necklace

Lot 102: Pre-Columbian Copper Ball and Shell Necklace

by ArtemisGallery LIVE

April 16, 2014

Erie , CO, USA

Estimated Price: $250 - $400

Description: Northern Peru, Moche, ca. 200-700 CE with contemporary assembly. This necklace features magnificent metal craftsmanship. The Peruvians favored the hammering process, using stone hammers and anvils to fashion metal, a tradition that had been practiced since the inception of gold working in the second millennium BCE to the time of the Spanish conquest in the sixteenth century. On this piece, the copper ball pendant and other copper beads were created via this technique. The necklace also includes countless flat, round beads composed of shells and several larger bright coral-hued beads of Spondylus shell. Spondylus, commonly known as the thorny oyster, was highly prized by the ancient Peruvians and of great importance in their ritual and economic life. Found off the coast of Ecuador, the Spondylus was particularly cherished by Andean peoples. The indigenous combed the Pacific in their quest for the so-called "spiny oyster" prized for the blush hue of its interior. Spondylus shells symbolized fertility and power and played a major role during religious ceremonies oftentimes serving as an offering to Pachamama as well as a form of currency. Main necklace measures 32"L (34"L with pendant). Provenance: Ex-Gamba Collection All items in this auction are legal to buy/sell under U.S. statute covering cultural patrimony per United States Code 2600, CHAPTER 14 -- CONVENTION ON CULTURAL PROPERTY, and are guaranteed to be as described or your money back.

Estimated Price: $90,000 - $110,000

Description: John Henry Twachtman American, 1853-1902 Sailing in the Mist, circa 1895 Oil on canvas 30 x 21 inches Provenance: Estate of the artist By descent to the artist's granddaughter Phyllis Twachtman, Brooklyn, New York Ira Spanierman, Inc., New York Jacqueline Getty, Los Angeles Geneva Marie Washburn Trust, Newport Beach, CA, after 1974 Sale: Butterfield & Butterfield, Los Angeles, CA, Nov. 12, 1987, lot 2263 Private Collection, Santa Barbara, CA Exhibited: Los Angeles, CA, Los Angeles County Museum of Art, American Painting in Los Angeles Collections, May 7-Jun. 30, 1974 (lent by Mrs. Jacqueline Getty) New York, Spanierman Gallery, LLC., John Twachtman: A Painter's Painter-Perceptions of Realism and Impressionism (1878-1902), May 4-Jun. 24, 2006 Literature: Stephen May, "Visual Poetry: The Landscapes of John Henry Twachtman," Art & Antiques, Feb. 2000, p. 87 Lisa N. Peters, John Twachtman: A "Painter's Painter", exh. cat. (New York: Spanierman Gallery, LLC), pp. 39, 172-173, color illus. no. 47 In John Twachtman, his monograph on the artist, Richard J. Boyle writes of a painting similar to the present one -- also titled Sailing in the Mist [Collection Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts] -- and other related works as achieving "a subdued and subtle poetry which extends beyond the particular method that conveys it. It is Impressionism, yes; but it is not the lush, bold, and gregarious painting of the French or of such compatriots as Childe Hassam or Frank Benson. Twachtman's painting is full of 'contradiction and complexity.' A myriad of brushstrokes, a manifold set of colors and tones, combine somehow to give the impression of great simplicity; or conversely, the rendering of a single tree or a pond or the glimpse of a small waterfall reveals an absorbing complexity of ideas and feelings." [Watson-Guptill Publications, New York, 1979, pp. 17-18]. The present work remained in the artist's family until 1968, and is still privately owned. The theme, that of a child in a catboat sailing into an amorphous, undefined space, is an anomalous one for the artist; Twachtman focused almost exclusively on landscape and few of his compositions incorporate the figure. Two of a larger series inspired by the tragic death in December 1894 of Twachtman's beloved daughter, Elsie, from scarlet fever at the age of eight, Sailing in the Mist is a tangible expression of the artist's grief; an additional two works from the series are known. In the exhibition catalogue, John Twachtman: A Painter's Painter, Lisa N. Peters writes that the present work, "is closely related to the Pennsylvania Academy's painting but represents a more intimate image. In the work in the academy, Twachtman portrayed the scene from a high vantage point, tilting the picture plane up to create a sense of the boat's movement into the distance. The perspective draws our eye toward a hazy zone in which the division between water and sky is blurred. Here, by contrast, the vertical canvas creates a narrower space, making the boat take on a larger presence within the scene. We look directly at the vessel, from the rear, rather than seeing it from above, so that we seem to accompany the figure on her journey. In the present painting, the boat also heads into a mysterious atmospheric realm lacking a horizon line and spatial differentiation, while the way that the figure is bent suggests that she has given into the will of the boat. Painted with thick broad strokes that do not fully cover the canvas, this painting seems a direct expression of Twachtman's feelings, as he faced this unspeakable loss." [Spanierman Gallery LLC, New York, 2006, p. 172-3] This painting will be included in the forthcoming catalogue raisonne of the work of John Henry Twachtman by Lisa N. Peters, Ph.D. and Ira Spanierman. C Property of the Barnard Estate

Boston, MA, USA

Estimated Price: $800 - $1,000

Description: Peruvian-born rancher (1853) who split his time between Texas and England, and perished with the sinking of the Titanic. ALS, one page, both sides, 4.75 x 6.5, crossed-out Breinton House letterhead, March 6, 1912. Letter to Charlie reads, in part: "You have not lost that very valuable picture, & illustration of what a shooter should not do I hope. The fellow who shot his unfortunate groom in the back of the head the other day when etching his hammer-gun to cross a fence would have benefitted by seeing it...When done with part two of 'the Puritan' you should get hold of the 'Foundations of the 19th Century' by Chamberlain, translated from the German...a pretty tough handful but so interesting." Scattered spots of light toning, otherwise fine condition. Also included is one of Rowe's embossed 3 x 1.75 personal calling cards, which has scattered toning, due to its being recovered from Rowe's body within a card case after the sinking of the Titanic. Card was originally sold by Aldridge and Sons Auctions on April 21, 2007. Though the official body effects list does not mention it, there was a report that Rowe's brother received his card case with cards inside. Ex. Brian Green Collection.
