ARTHUR WESLEY DOW (American, 1857-1922) A Maine Headlan

Lot 68202: ARTHUR WESLEY DOW (American, 1857-1922) A Maine Headlan

by Heritage Auctions

May 2, 2015, 2:00 PM CST

Dallas, TX, USA

Estimated Price: $7,000 - $10,000

Description: ARTHUR WESLEY DOW (American, 1857-1922) A Maine Headland (Rocky Coast) Oil on canvasboard 12 x 16 inches (30.5 x 40.6 cm) Signed lower left: Arthur W. Dow Pencil notation verso: A Maine Headland PROVENANCE: William Doyle Galleries, New York, November 17, 1993, lot 21a. We are grateful to Dow specialist Frederick C. Moffatt, Professor Emeritus, School of Art, University of Tennessee, Knoxville for endorsing a full attribution to the artist and for preparing the following catalogue essay. This scene portrays a bright summer morning. In the middle distance is a large mound, its sides clad by tilted shelves of red-violet rocks, its top and flanks thinly carpeted by grass. At the viewer's right, the protuberance suddenly gives way, causing a rocky cliff to descend to the water's edge at a 45 degree angle. The cliff is cast into dark-blue shadows. The fore area is also under shadow. It is dominated by a low bench of rocks which vary in hue from pink-violet, to burnt umber, to a brownish mustard. Between it and the base of the mound is a wedge of cobalt-blue ocean. A white capped wave has just crashed into the rocks. Almost as arresting as the central monolith is a massive, sharply fractured, boulder at the left which, because of its precarious positioning, seems about to tumble downward. The bright glare of the sun essentially divides this megalith into two flatly painted planes, the illuminated side burnt sienna in color, the shadowed side a warm black. Throughout the painting, but especially with the stony platform of the foreground, the paint applique is vigorous , indelicate, even "primitive," in a modern sense of that word -- I am thinking here of Marsden Hartley's masterful Fox Island, Georgetown, Maine, of 1937. Further promoting the idea of unrelenting force is the fact that the artist of A Maine Headland often resorts to the use of a black slashing line to suggest the contours of forms. Arthur Wesley Dow (1857-1922) was a painter, printmaker, teacher, photographer, ceramicist, world traveler and author who in his free hours resided at his birthplace of Ipswich, Massachusetts. While teaching at the Pratt Institute in New York, the Arts Students League of New York, and finally while serving as director of the Department of Fine Arts at Columbia University's Teachers' College, Dow reordered the priorities of public school art education by introducing into the curriculum the compositional practices of Japanese art. In his own work he became best known for paintings and wood-block prints that featured the common landscape motifs he found in and around Ipswich: haystacks, marsh islands, fishing shacks, old dories, the ever mysterious Ipswich River -- he christened it the "Blue Dragan" -- and moon rises over the marshes. He seems to have made surprisingly few sketching trips to Maine. In the early 1890s, after returning to New England from France, he visited on several occasions Sarah Farmer's religious retreat known as "Green Acres" at Eliot, Maine. He was obviously well aware of the presence at Prout's Neck, Maine, of Winslow Homer, perhaps America's favorite portrayer of stormy seas, and of the many other artists who pictured the spewing waves at Kittery Point, or at Monhegan Island. Regarding coastal haunts, Dow much preferred the white dunes and calm waters of what became Crane Beach at Ipswich, or of Gay Head at Martha's Vineyard off the Massachusetts coast. I am confident that Dow painted A Maine Headland, but it is perhaps the only rocky seacoast painting he was to produce. His reason for painting it, I believe, was to satisfied his felt need to at least tackle a subject that was alien to him, and to allow his students and patrons to judge the results for themselves.

Condition Report: There appears to be frame wear along extreme edges with related abrasions in corners; upper left corner is creased; pinhole at the right bottom extreme edge and another at center left extreme edge; there appears to be no inpainting under UV exam.

by Garth's Auctioneers & Appraisers

May 15, 2015, 12:00 PM EST

Delaware, OH, USA

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

Description: CIVIL WAR AND BUSINESS ARCHIVE OF PETER HILL WATSON, ASSISTANT SECRETARY OF WAR. 1860s-1870s, including letters, notes, and telegram documents, detailing Watson's time as Secretary of War under Edwin M. Stanton, and through some of his post-war business dealings. Together with print outs of research and correspondence from the collector. Watson (1819-1885) was born in Yorkshire and emigrated to Canada with his family in 1830. He came to the US in the early 1840s, settling in Rockford, Illinois, and set up a law practice that was short-lived, as he removed to Washington, DC in 1845 to focus on patent law. It was in Washington that he worked in the same office building as Edwin M. Stanton, and the two became acquainted. Shortly after Fort Sumter, Stanton appointed his friend to be his assistant. Watson served in that position until the end of the war, often serving as Acting Secretary when Stanton was away from Washington. This archive includes numerous notes from Watson in Harpers Ferry to Stanton, written on American Telegraph Company stationery during the spring of 1862. Additionally, the archive includes additional Civil War-era correspondence between Watson and Stanton and other military and political figures, as well as the 1867 appointment, signed by Stanton, charging Watson to "arrange and prepare for publication, the official documents relating to the rebellion" (this project would, of course, lead to the publication of The Official Records of the War of the Rebellion in seventy volumes between 1881 and 1901 Following the Civil War, Watson entered the iron and coal mining industry, as well as the railroad industry, and he later served as president of the Erie Railway. The archives contain scattered correspondence and documents related to these activities. This is a broad and deep archive covering a range of important historical subjects and includes correspondence from some of the most prominent men in late 19th-century America.

by Cheffins

April 30, 2015, 11:00 AM GMT

Cambridge, United Kingdom

Estimated Price: £300 - £500

Description: § James Havard Thomas (British, 1854–1921) Side profile of a young woman with a plait signed with initials lower right "JHT" a bronze relief, in original black frame h:16 w: 10 cm One of James Havard Thomas's most well known works, "Lycides', is on display at Tate Britain. The National Portrait Gallery also holds a pencil drawing completed by Havard Thomas in 1913 of the poet Rupert Brooke. Havard Thomas's beautiful marble relief of Rupert Brooke is in Rugby School Chapel, and is used as the frontispiece often to his books of poems. James Havard Thomas (1854 -1921) was a Bristol born sculptor, who studied at the Bristol School of Art and went on to further study at the Royal College of Arts having won a scholarship. He later studied in Paris at the Ecole des Beaux Arts. This Classical study helped establish Thomas as a respected artist and he exhibited at the Royal Academy from 1872 onwards, his first solo exhibition being in 1902 at the Carfax Gallery, London. Thomas's work was much influenced by his time (1889 -1906) in Italy near Naples, where he drew inspiration from the popular Tanagra Statuettes. He would later go on to teach at the Slade, becoming Professor of Sculpture in 1915. Today his work continues to be esteemed, with paintings exhibited in several public collections including Sheffield City Art Galleries. Thomas was born in Bristol and studied at the Bristol School of Art, the R.C.A., as a National Scholar and the École des Beaux-Arts, Paris, under Pierre-Jules Cavelier (French, 1814 -1894). He went on to become Professor of Sculpture at the Slade School in 1915. Havard Thomas is known for his beautiful reliefs to be found in illustrations in almost every edition of his poems and in his biographies.
