            May. 18, 2024

            IN THE MANNER OF GERTRUDE ABERCROMBIE (AMERICAN, 1909-1977)

            Est: $500 - $1,000

            IN THE MANNER OF GERTRUDE ABERCROMBIE (AMERICAN, 1909-1977) Oil on canvas, spuriously signed lower right. The surrealist, folk art scene composed of a woman with an apple below a crescent moon, a set of stairs to a false door before a skeletal tree at the left. Unframed. Susan Weininger, Professor Emierita, Lincoln University, writes: This painting of a woman in an austere landscape, devoid of anything but a leafless tree and a strange, isolated staircase topped by a door, with a crescent moon and single black bottomed cloud in the dark sky, is made up of elements frequently seen in other paintings by Abercrombie. It does not appear in my extensive records of the artist's work, nor is there a secure provenance. This does not automatically mean that it is not an authentic work but does require an analysis of the style and content of the painting to determine its authenticity. There are a number of anomalies in the painting that are immediately apparent, despite the use of many of Abercrombie's favorite motifs. The figure itself is peculiar in proportion—a very large head atop a short necked, short armed, sway backed body which is fuller than the usual streamlined silhouettes that Abercrombie usually painted. She was not a skillful figure painter and developed a formulaic and characteristic, simplified figure type that Youth strives for but fails to execute. The long neck, a distinctive trait in Abercrombie's conventional self-portraits, as well as her representations of herself as a full-length figure is of particular importance (see, for example, Search for Rest [Nile River], 1951, Dijkstra Collection; Dilemma, 1947, Barbara Tannenbaum Collection; Serpentina [Pink Snake Lady] [Lady and Staircase], 1947, private collection; Strange Shadows [Shadows and Substance], 1950, private collection). Abercrombie's own long neck was exaggerated in her figures, perhaps as a way of lending them an elegance, and creating a sense of proportion in the extreme simplifications of the human form she produced. The strange, truncated staircase topped by a door in the center of the painting is reminiscent of those in a number of Abercrombie works from the late 1940s, most of which seem to relate to the period when the artist was leaving her first marriage and entering her second. These staircases that are set in a landscape (such as that in Dilemma or Between Two Camps, 1948, private collection) are symbolic of one path open to the figure, resonating with the new path that Abercrombie was taking in her own life. The staircase in Youth, in contrast to those in the paintings just mentioned, is tiny and culminates in a door that sits at an odd angle to the top of the stairs. While Abercrombie's figures are often generalized and simplified, her inanimate objects have the beauty of exquisitely conceived three dimensional objects, rendered with great care. She was trained in her very traditional art classes at University of Illinois (some of her class projects are in the collection of the Illinois State Museum, Springfield) to create believable three-dimensional objects with the careful use of light and shade, an effect we see in many of her still life paintings and in the rendering of the staircases in Between Two Camps and Dilemma. The stairs in Youth, if somewhat uneven, are placed at an angle to the picture plane in a believable way, but the door on the top step is parallel to the picture plane (we see it head on, rather than at an angle conforming to the stairs). In the respect for her training that is apparent throughout her career, it is unlikely that Abercrombie would have made this kind of error in consistency. The door itself does not have the usual careful rendering of light and shade that we see in Abercrombie's innumerable doors—here there is a dark outline around each of the panels of the door, with so sense of light and shade to give a sense of the depth of the panels. While Abercrombie's leafless trees are ubiquitous, those in the distance are usually crisp silhouettes, while the one in Youth seems careless and sloppy. And Abercrombie often made use of shadows to increase the sense of solidity of the objects she painted—there are no shadows at all in this work. This brings us to meaning. The collection of Abercrombie themed motifs in the painting do not seem to add up to anything. Abercrombie's work is infused with meaning, and the staircase that meant something as one choice at the crossroads of her life does not work in this configuration. It is arbitrarily placed in the center of the painting without any sense of why it is there. In 1954, Abercrombie was very busy. She had two solo shows in addition to her participation in a number of group exhibitions. The same was true for the years immediately preceding and following. She was extremely productive and recorded the names of numerous paintings done in these years, which makes an unrecorded painting even less likely. In addition, the anomalies of style and the lack of ostensible meaning, along with the lack of secure provenance, lead me to conclude that in my opinion, this is not an authentic Abercrombie.

            Still life nocturne depicting three white owls on a branch and one at the base of a tree. Signed and dated lower left. Frame Measurements H 12.25" W 14.25" We are grateful for the research conducted by Dr. Susan Weininger, Professor Emerita, Roosevelt University, Chicago, Illinois and leading scholar of Gertrude Abercrombie. Provenance: The Artist; Collection of Dr. Lawrence and Helen Breslow, Chicago, IL; By descent to their daughter, Bloomfield Hills, MI. Lot Essay 'The Truant' by Gertrude Abercrombie Written by Dr. Susan Weininger, Professor Emerita, Roosevelt University Authentication for Gertrude Abercrombie, The Truant (4 Owls), 1956, 8” x 10”, oil on Masonite, signed and dated lower left This painting appears in my records as The Truant (4 Owls), a title that incorporates the typical wit of the artist.  It was exhibited at the Hyde Park open air art fair in 1956 (priced at $75), and subsequently at the Old Town Art Gallery in 1957 where it was sold for $75 to Dr. Breslow (Lawrence and Helen Breslow).  It passed by descent to the current owner in Bloomfield Hills, Michigan.  Its provenance is secure. The painting has many elements characteristic of Abercrombie:  owls, a simple tree, crescent moon, lone white rock, all in a landscape devoid of any other detail.  These elements held personal meaning for the artist, but despite appearing again and again in her work, each composition was unique, contributing to the differing significance of each painting. There are quite a few paintings in which owls were situated in or on leafless trees (see, for example, Four Trees and Three Owls [Four Trees], 1950, sold at Hindman, 2023; or Dizzy Gillespie, 1949, sold at Wright in 2023, which features the tree, the owl, and the single white stone), sometimes with Abercrombie overseeing the scene as a director or teacher (for example Owl Trainer [School for Owls], 1945, Private Collection;  Owl Trainer #2, 1947, Private Collection).  So while this work certainly shares dimensions of these and other works, it is sui generis.  Abercrombie’s work is deceptively simple and often beautifully composed, as is evidenced in this painting.  The tree dominates the center of the painting, moving in a slight diagonal from near left to near right, its bare branch extending out like a human arm, the leafy top serving as a head.  Three owls sit on the branch, two of them small, the third presumably the mother (Abercrombie’s owls were gendered), the fourth and smallest sits at the base of the tree in the shadow cast by its trunk.  The shadow extends toward us on a diagonal anchoring the tree in three dimensional space.  The delicate crescent moon in the upper left balances the heavy rock in the lower right. Like the other animals who make frequent appearances in her work--the cat, the giraffe, sometimes a chicken, a snail or even a dinosaur—the owl has personal meaning for Abercrombie.  Associated with both wisdom and darkness, the owl serves as a surrogate for the artist.  She possessed characteristics of both the dominant owl in the tree and the rebellious truant on the ground.  In addition to the independence exercised by the latter, the tiny owl may also convey something of the loneliness and vulnerability Abercrombie experienced despite her ostensible popularity and active social life.  The power she exercised in her role as “Queen of Chicago” resonates with the large, wise and commanding owl who sits confidently on the end of the branch. That Abercrombie was able to convey these complex and often contradictory feelings in what looks like a simple image is part of her magic.  She was able to transform difficult and conflicting emotions into mesmerizing works of art, which is what makes the viewer want to return to them again and again.  And in this case, she includes a bit of wit and humor as well.  l Susan Weininger Professor Emerita Roosevelt University
