Circle of James Hayllar (1829-1920) - Portrait of The Coleridge Daughters, Audrey Jane and Phyllis

Lot 186: Circle of James Hayllar (1829-1920) - Portrait of The Coleridge Daughters, Audrey Jane and Phyllis

by Dreweatts & Bloomsbury

March 25, 2015, 2:00 PM GMT

Newbury, United Kingdom

Estimated Price: £8,000 - £12,000

Description: Both seated on a yellow sofa, looking at a picture book Oil on Canvas 110.5 x 141 cm. (43 1/2 x 55 1/2 in) Provenance: Sale. Sotheby's, London Olympia, The Chanter's House Collection of Lord Coleridge and a Coleridge Family Trust , 24th October, 2006, (£22,000 hammer); where purchased by Mallett (cost price: £30,170) Literature: Mallett, Spring Catalogue , 2007 Given the ages of the two young girls, this intimate double portrait is likely to have been painted between 1885-1888. The artist provides a sense of domesticity within the limited space of the picture, suggested by the pastoral scene on the 18th century screen behind the two sitters, the doll's house and flowers beside them and a story book, possibly a fairy tale, which they are in the process of reading. The picture book, which is partially obscured by Audrey's hand, appears to depict a bear and cubs. The artist explores various interesting themes within this work, including maternity, protection, love and imagination, and is thus a quite touching illustration of childhood and the connection between sisters.

Pre-Columbian Peruvian pottery jar w human face, Chimu 900AD

Lot 465: Pre-Columbian Peruvian pottery jar w human face, Chimu 900AD

by Eternity Gallery

March 8, 2015, 2:00 PM EST

Tampa, FL, USA

Estimated Price: $1,000 - $2,000

Description: Pre-Columbian Peruvian pottery jar with human face, Chimu 900-1470 AD Height: 4.6" inches = 11.5 cm; Width: 3.25" x 3.75" = 8 cm x 9 cm; Age: 900-1470; Origin: Peru; Condition: very good; no chips, cracks or repairs. Provenance: When acquired it had a certificate inside saying it is Chimu, Peru circa 1200 AD, signed by Mendel Peterson. References: Chimu culture The Chimú were the residents of Chimor, with its capital at the city of Chan Chan, a large adobe city in the Moche Valley of present-day Trujillo city. The culture arose about 900 AD. The Inca ruler Tupac Inca Yupanqui led a campaign which conquered the Chimú around 1470 AD. This was just fifty years before the arrival of the Spanish in the region. Consequently, Spanish chroniclers were able to record accounts of Chimú culture from individuals who had lived before the Inca conquest. Similarly, Archaeological evidence suggest Chimor grew out of the remnants of Moche culture; early Chimú pottery had some resemblance to that of the Moche. Their ceramics are all black, and their work in precious metals is very detailed and intricate. The Chimú resided on the north coast of Peru: "It consists of a narrow strip of desert, 20 to 100 miles wide, between the Pacific and the western slopes of the Andes, crossed here and there by short rivers which start in the rainier mountains and provide a series of green and fertile oases." The valley plains are very flat and well-suited to irrigation, which is probably as old as agriculture here. Fishing was also very important and was almost considered as important as agriculture. The Chimú were known to have worshipped the moon, unlike the Inca, who worshiped the sun. The Chimu viewed the sun as a destroyer. This is likely due to the harshness of the sun in their desert environment. Offerings played an important role in religious rites. A common object for offerings, as well as one used by artisans, was the shell of the Spondylus shellfish, which live only in the warm coastal waters off present-day Ecuador. It was associated with the sea, rainfall, and fertility. Spondylus shells were also highly valued and traded by the Chimú. The Chimú are best known for their distinctive monochromatic pottery and fine metal working of copper, gold, silver, bronze, and tumbaga (copper and gold). The pottery is often in the shape of a creature, or has a human figure sitting or standing on a cuboid bottle. The shiny black finish of most Chimú pottery was achieved by firing the pottery at high temperatures in a closed kiln, which prevented oxygen from reacting with the clay. Condition: very good; no chips, cracks or repairs Low Estimate: 1000; High Estimate: 2000; Original: Yes; Circa: 1100 AD;

Pre-Columbian Llama carved Bone Flute Inca, Peru

Lot 468: Pre-Columbian Llama carved Bone Flute Inca, Peru

by Eternity Gallery

March 8, 2015, 2:00 PM EST

Tampa, FL, USA

Estimated Price: $500 - $1,000

Description: Ancient Llama Bone Flute Inca, Peru. Length: 3 inches = 7.5 cm; Weight: 22.46 g;. Provenance: Bought at Prehistoric and Historic artifact Auction in Ohio, USA. References: The llama (Lama glama) is a domesticated South American camelid, widely used as a meat and pack animal by Andean cultures since pre-Hispanic times. The height of a full-grown, full-size llama is 1.7 to 1.8 m (5.5 to 6.0 ft) tall at the top of the head, and can weigh between 130 to 200 kilograms (280 to 450 lb). At birth, a baby llama (called a cria) can weigh between 9 and 14 kilograms (20 and 30 lb). Llamas can live for a period of about 2030 years depending on how well they are taken care of.[citation needed] Llamas are very social animals and live with other llamas as a herd. The wool produced by a llama is very soft and lanolin-free. Llamas are intelligent and can learn simple tasks after a few repetitions. When using a pack, llamas can carry about 25% to 30% of their body weight for 5-8 miles. The name llama (in the past also spelled 'lama' or 'glama') was adopted by European settlers from native Peruvians. Llamas appear to have originated from the central plains of North America about 40 million years ago. They migrated to South America about 3 million years ago. By the end of the last ice age (10,00012,000 years ago), camelids were extinct in North America.[1] As of 2007, there were over 7 million llamas and alpacas in South America and, due to importation from South America in the late 20th century, there are now over 158,000 llamas and 100,000 alpacas in the US and Canada. The Inca Empire or Inka Empire[2] (Quechua: Tawantinsuyu[pronunciation?]) was the largest empire in pre-Columbian America.[3] The administrative, political and military center of the empire was located in Cusco in modern-day Peru. The Inca civilization arose from the highlands of Peru sometime in the early 13th century, and the last Inca stronghold was conquered by the Spanish in 1572. From 1438 to 1533, the Incas used a variety of methods, from conquest to peaceful assimilation, to incorporate a large portion of western South America, centered on the Andean mountain ranges, including, besides Peru, large parts of modern Ecuador, western and south central Bolivia, northwest Argentina, north and central Chile, and a small part of southern Colombia into a state comparable to the historical empires of Eurasia.

by Eternity Gallery

March 8, 2015, 2:00 PM EST

Material: Oil on Canvas Canvas is torn along the upper left edge of the stretcher. Age: 19th century. Size of the canvas: 9 x 12 inches = 23 cm x 30.5 cm. Size of the triple frame: 21 x 25 inches = 54.8 cm x 63.8 cm Weight with a frame: 8 lb Magnification research Condition is good for the age with natural aging of the wood frame and canvas. This is an oil painting on canvas with light brush strokes. There is an old (not restored varnish), delicate cracks/crackelures all over the canvas, including background, soldiers figures, their boots and Wilkies signature. Research under ultraviolet light Results of ultraviolet research: In ultraviolet light black boots of soldiers and signature stand out. It does not look like in-paint or over paint, because black color absorbs all kind of light and may stand out. In the left low corner there is a bright spot 8x7 mm, which may represent wear and repair. Pants of sitting soldier are more prominent than background. The edge on the right has some bright elongated spots - later repairs? Biography Sir David Wilkie, a Scottish painter, was born in Cults manse in Fife in 1785. In 1799, he was sent to study at the Trustees Academy in Edinburgh and on his return home in 1804, painted his Pitlessie Fair. The Village Politicians (1806) was of great success which made him settle in London. In 1817, he visited Sir Walter Scott at Abbotsford, and painted the family group now in the Scottish National Gallery. His fame mainly rests on his genre pictures in the Dutch style, such as the Distraining for Rent (1815), The Penny Wedding (1818), The Letter of Introduction (1818) and others. Later he changed his style, tried to imitate the depth and richness of coloring of the old masters and chose more elevated historical subjects, like The Preaching of John Knox before the Lords of Congregation, 10 June 1559. He also painted portraits William Chalmers-Bethune, his wife Isabella Morison and their Daughter Isabella (1804), and was successful as an etcher. In 1823, he was appointed Kings limner in Scotland, and in 1830 painter-in-ordinary to King William IV. In 1840, for his health, he visited Syria, Palestine and Egypt, but died on his voyage home. Benjamin Disraeli, 1st Earl of Beaconsfield Benjamin Disraeli, 1st Earl of Beaconsfield, KG, PC, FRS, (21 December 1804 19 April 1881) was a British Prime Minister, parliamentarian, Conservative statesman and literary figure. He served in government for three decades, twice as Prime Minister of the United Kingdom. Although his father had him baptized to Anglicanism at age 12, he was nonetheless the country's first and thus far only Prime Minister who was born into a Jewish family. He played an instrumental role in the creation of the modern Conservative Party after the Corn Laws schism of 1846. Although a major figure in the protectionist wing of the Conservative Party after 1844, Disraeli's relations with the other leading figures in the party, particularly Lord Derby, the overall leader, were often strained. Not until the 1860s would Derby and Disraeli be on easy terms, and the latter's succession of the former assured. From 1852 onwards, Disraeli's career would also be marked by his often intense rivalry with William Ewart Gladstone, who eventually rose to become leader of the Liberal Party. In this feud, Disraeli was aided by his warm friendship with Queen Victoria, who came to detest Gladstone during the latter's first premiership in the 1870s. In 1876 Disraeli was raised to the peerage as the Earl of Beaconsfield, capping nearly four decades in the House of Commons. Before and during his political career, Disraeli was well-known as a literary and social figure, although his novels are not generally regarded as a part of the Victorian literary canon. He mainly wrote romances, of which Sybil and Vivian Grey are perhaps the best-known today. He is exceptional among British Prime Ministers for having gained equal social and political renown. He was twice successful as the Glasgow University Conservative Association's candidate for Rector of the University, holding the post for two full terms between 1871 and 1877. Condition Canvas is torn along the upper left edge of the stretcher. The frame is original and old. Low Estimate: 25000; High Estimate: 50000; Original: Yes; Medium: Oil Paint; Circa: 1815; Style: Classicism;
