The First Miracle by James Seward

Lot 848S: The First Miracle by James Seward

by Artistic Holdings Company

April 19, 2014, 5:00 AM PST

Las Vegas, NV, USA

Estimated Price: $300 - $380

Description: The First Miracle by James Seward - Edition Size: Open - Giclee on Canvas, Open Edition Signed Dimensions: 8 x 16 Release Date: 2-2010 ???.James Seward was born in Alabama, and raised in Tennessee. He spent summers with his grandparents in the wild back-country of Alabama. When he was six, his grandfather bought him his first set of oil paints, and as a young child he often painted his grandparents by lamp-light, to their great astonishment. "From the time I was five years old, I was continually painting and drawing in that great environment,? the artist remembers with fondness. After military service, Seward spent a year studying art under Howard Boyd Johnson at Watkins Institute in Nashville. In 1947, he enrolled at the Art Institute of Chicago, where he met his wife, Lyn. A year later they were married. After graduation, Seward apprenticed at two Chicago commercial art studios, but in 1954, the family moved to the midwest. After a year with an agency, he joined Union Gospel Press for the next six years. Since that time, Seward has been self-employed as a freelance illustrator and painter and has created works for most of the large protestant denominations including Standard Publishing in Cincinnati, the Methodists and Baptists in Nashville, the Concordia Lutherans in St. Louis, and the Nazarene Publishing House. Although the artist had attended church since childhood, after leaving for the Navy in 1944, he dropped his church attendance. In 1953, two former friends with whom he?d lost contact felt moved to pray for his salvation. And in 1954 when he and his family attended church with a neighbor, Jim and Lyn gave their lives to Christ.. Currently Jim is an ordained minister for the "Christ-Life Fellowship? headquartered in Dallas, Texas. He has spoken around the United States as well as in South Africa. He writes articles, makes teaching tapes and works on religious books. His religious paintings express his passion for Christ. Seward has completed over 22 illustrations for a Doubleday book entitled, Ancient Greece. In 1987 and 1989, he was one of 100 artists from around the country picked for the National Arts in the Parks Competition. James E. Seward has been commissioned for portraitures by many organizations. His paintings grace the walls of such companies as the General Motors Corporation, the Wells Fargo Bank, The McDonald Investment Company, and the Will Rogers Museum in Oklahoma. "I try not only to inform, but to move and delight with my artwork?I want the viewer to have an emotional reaction to each painting. That?s what makes it a work of art rather than just an illustration.? - James E. Seward James Seward passed away in December 2011

Description: Artist: Batia Magal. Title: Aristocrats. Medium: Serigraph On Paper. Image Size: 25x19. Paper Size: 27.5x21. Limited Edition Size: 395. __________artist Biography: Batia Magal Was Born In Israel In 1953. From Childhood Onwards, She Displayed A Marked Talent For Drawing And An All - Embracing Interest In Art. It Is Therefore Not Surprising That She Was Accepted As A Student At The Avni Art Institute, Where She Came Under The Influence Of Such Well-known Artists As Streichman And Wexler, Just To Name A Few. Her Work Seems To Have Developed Along Various Lines, All Of Which Converged And Fused Into A Very Personal And Feminine Statement. The Basic Calligraphic Drawing Of The Female Figure Or Flower-filled Vase Is The Centerpiece Which Forms The Structural Base Of The Work, To Which The Brilliant Washes Of Lively Colors Act As A Counterpoint, With The Deeper And Warmer Hues Evoking The Luminosity Of Medieval Stained-glass Windows. More Recently, Yet Another Intriguing Factor Has Been Added By The Introduction Of Fabric Textures And Prints Of A Seemingly Unconnected Nature, Forming Collages In Which The Three Elements Of Drawing, Color And Print Or Fabric Texture, Maintain A Balance Which Tends To Emphasize The Works' Structural Composition.

He spent his childhood in Jerusalem, and after serving in the army, founded the legendary Kibbutz Eyal with friends. He studied at the 'Avni Institute of Art' and the 'Kallisher Institute for Contemporary Art', and has taught both art and graphic printing ever since.

"From the time I was five years old, I was continually painting and drawing in that great environment,? the artist remembers with fondness. After military service, Seward spent a year studying art under Howard Boyd Johnson at Watkins Institute in Nashville. In 1947, he enrolled at the Art Institute of Chicago, where he met his wife, Lyn. A year later they were married. After graduation, Seward apprenticed at two Chicago commercial art studios, but in 1954, the family moved to the midwest.

In 1953, two former friends with whom he?d lost contact felt moved to pray for his salvation. And in 1954 when he and his family attended church with a neighbor, Jim and Lyn gave their lives to Christ..

That?s what makes it a work of art rather than just an illustration.? - James E. Seward James Seward passed away in December 2011

Estimated Price: $280 - $420

Description: Artist: Batia Magal. Title: Heavenly Morning. Medium: Serigraph on Paper. Image Size: 26x12. Paper Size: . Limited Edition Size: 750. __________Artist Biography: Batia Magal was born in Israel in 1953. From childhood onwards, she displayed a marked talent for drawing and an all - embracing interest in art. It is therefore not surprising that she was accepted as a student at the Avni Art Institute, where she came under the influence of such well-known artists as Streichman and Wexler, just to name a few. Her work seems to have developed along various lines, all of which converged and fused into a very personal and feminine statement. The basic calligraphic drawing of the female figure or flower-filled vase is the centerpiece which forms the structural base of the work, to which the brilliant washes of lively colors act as a counterpoint, with the deeper and warmer hues evoking the luminosity of medieval stained-glass windows. More recently, yet another intriguing factor has been added by the introduction of fabric textures and prints of a seemingly unconnected nature, forming collages in which the three elements of drawing, color and print or fabric texture, maintain a balance which tends to emphasize the works' structural composition.

Description: Peace! Be Still! by James Seward - Edition Size: 35 - Giclee on Canvas - Grande Edition Dimensions: 30 x 45 Release Date: 11-2008 ???.James Seward was born in Alabama, and raised in Tennessee. He spent summers with his grandparents in the wild back-country of Alabama. When he was six, his grandfather bought him his first set of oil paints, and as a young child he often painted his grandparents by lamp-light, to their great astonishment. "From the time I was five years old, I was continually painting and drawing in that great environment,? the artist remembers with fondness. After military service, Seward spent a year studying art under Howard Boyd Johnson at Watkins Institute in Nashville. In 1947, he enrolled at the Art Institute of Chicago, where he met his wife, Lyn. A year later they were married. After graduation, Seward apprenticed at two Chicago commercial art studios, but in 1954, the family moved to the midwest. After a year with an agency, he joined Union Gospel Press for the next six years. Since that time, Seward has been self-employed as a freelance illustrator and painter and has created works for most of the large protestant denominations including Standard Publishing in Cincinnati, the Methodists and Baptists in Nashville, the Concordia Lutherans in St. Louis, and the Nazarene Publishing House. Although the artist had attended church since childhood, after leaving for the Navy in 1944, he dropped his church attendance.

Rejoice in the Lord by James Seward

April 19, 2014, 5:00 AM PST

Las Vegas, NV, USA

Estimated Price: $190 - $240

Description: Rejoice in the Lord by James Seward - Edition Size: Open - Giclee on Canvas, Open Edition Signed Dimensions: 11 x 14 Release Date: 1-2012 ???.James Seward was born in Alabama, and raised in Tennessee. He spent summers with his grandparents in the wild back-country of Alabama. When he was six, his grandfather bought him his first set of oil paints, and as a young child he often painted his grandparents by lamp-light, to their great astonishment. "From the time I was five years old, I was continually painting and drawing in that great environment,? the artist remembers with fondness. After military service, Seward spent a year studying art under Howard Boyd Johnson at Watkins Institute in Nashville. In 1947, he enrolled at the Art Institute of Chicago, where he met his wife, Lyn. A year later they were married. After graduation, Seward apprenticed at two Chicago commercial art studios, but in 1954, the family moved to the midwest. After a year with an agency, he joined Union Gospel Press for the next six years. Since that time, Seward has been self-employed as a freelance illustrator and painter and has created works for most of the large protestant denominations including Standard Publishing in Cincinnati, the Methodists and Baptists in Nashville, the Concordia Lutherans in St. Louis, and the Nazarene Publishing House. Although the artist had attended church since childhood, after leaving for the Navy in 1944, he dropped his church attendance. In 1953, two former friends with whom he?d lost contact felt moved to pray for his salvation. And in 1954 when he and his family attended church with a neighbor, Jim and Lyn gave their lives to Christ.. Currently Jim is an ordained minister for the "Christ-Life Fellowship? headquartered in Dallas, Texas. He has spoken around the United States as well as in South Africa. He writes articles, makes teaching tapes and works on religious books. His religious paintings express his passion for Christ. Seward has completed over 22 illustrations for a Doubleday book entitled, Ancient Greece. In 1987 and 1989, he was one of 100 artists from around the country picked for the National Arts in the Parks Competition. James E. Seward has been commissioned for portraitures by many organizations. His paintings grace the walls of such companies as the General Motors Corporation, the Wells Fargo Bank, The McDonald Investment Company, and the Will Rogers Museum in Oklahoma. "I try not only to inform, but to move and delight with my artwork?I want the viewer to have an emotional reaction to each painting. That?s what makes it a work of art rather than just an illustration.? - James E. Seward James Seward passed away in December 2011
