Auction Date: Jul 29, 2018

Estimate: $1,000 - $2,000

Description: E.E. Cummings
(American/New York/New Hampshire, 1894-1962)

"Mountain Road"

oil on canvas
unsigned, dated en verso "Sept. 6 '47".
Framed.
30" x 40", framed 31" x 41"

Provenance: Watson/deNagy Co., Houston, Texas; Meredith Long & Co., Houston, Texas; Corporate collection of Freeport-McMoRan, New Orleans, Louisiana.

Notes: While best known for his innovative avant garde poetry, Edward Estlin Cummings was also a passionate visual artist and considered painting his "twin obsession". The Armory Show that toured the U.S. in 1913 played a pivotal role in his artistic development. Of all the artists included in that exhibition, it was Cezanne who made the deepest impression on Cummings, not only stylistically but also with the subjects he chose to paint. As Cezanne lovingly painted his native Provence, Cummings did so with his studies of Mount Chocorua, near his parents' home in the White Mountains of New Hampshire. As a poet and a painter, he was drawn to a multitude of subjects, though nature played the most prominent role in his work.

CUMMINGS, Edward Estlin, (American, 1894-1962): ''Three

Lot 1155: CUMMINGS, Edward Estlin, (American, 1894-1962): ''Three

Auction Date: May 18, 2014

Estimate: $2,000 - $4,000

Description: CUMMINGS, Edward Estlin, (American, 1894-1962): ''Three Heads After El Greco'' (''The Despolations''), Oil/Board. Approx 7'' x 14''. William Plumley Estate. He is hailed by the critics as a critical observer and chronicler of the modem era. Ezra Pound placed Cummings' book of poetry, Is 5, as the second most important book of the 20th century, ahead of James Joyce's Ulysses. Although best remembered for his visual poetry, his academic training at Harvard was in Graphic art. He wrote to his father late in 1923, ''One's tastes have not, I fear, materially changed: am still convinced that |I| am primarily a painter....'' [From an unpublished letter in the Cummings Collection of the Houghton Library, Harvard.] Similar comments are sprinkled throughout the many books, monographs, and articles about his art, much of which is housed in permanent university archives, museums, and private collections. Although he achieved substantial acclaim as a painter in the years between the wars, he later viewed the artistic establishment as hopelessly anti-intellectual and abandoned the New York galleries. He received a number of honors, including an Academy of American Poets Fellowship, two Guggenheim Fellowships, the Charles Eliot Norton Professorship at Harvard, the Bollingen Prize in Poetry in 1958, and a Ford Foundation grant. Nearly a thousand pieces of his original art were placed at the Gotham Book Mart (Gallery) in NYC in 1973 by the estate of Mrs. E. E. Cummings (Marion Morehouse). ''Three Heads after El Greco'') is approx. 7 x 14 oil on stiff cardboard; GBM description, ''fragments in sienna from 'The Despoliation.'' It survived the Paris years. In 1980, Marianne Morehouse, his widow, consigned a collection through the legendary Gotham Book Marte on Manhattan's West Forty-Seventh Street. The art was displayed on the second floor, and each had a Gotham number assigned and fully described in the catalog. Marion Morehouse (1906-1969); She was a model and photographer, who met E.E Cummings in 1932'onen 'referred to as his third wife, it is not clear whether the two were ever legally married. Morehouse lived with Cummings until his death in 1962. [Note: For price comparisons, see the web site http://eecummingsart.com/ From the William Crawford Plumley Estate....

Lot 60: CUMMINGS, Edward Estlin (1894-1962). The Enormous Room. New York: Boni & Liveright, 1922.

Auction Date: Oct 11, 2002

Estimate: $6,000 - $8,000

Description: 8 o. Unbound, unopened and uncut, signatures sewn. RARE ADVANCE ISSUE OF THE FIRST EDITION. This is the only copy of the advance issue to appear at auction, according to American Book Prices Current since at least 1975. Cummings's first book, a novel about his experiences as a prisoner of war in World War I, is the cause of some book-collecting legend with relation to the offending word "shit" in the last line of p.219. It was widely believed that Boni & Liveright inked out the word in most copies, but in reality the publisher was not especially committed to making the emendation. It appears unadulterated in both this advance issue and the first edition below. Firmage A1. [ With: ] CUMMINGS, E.E. The Enormous Room. 8 o. (Some offsetting from dust jacket on endleaves.) Original light brown cloth; pictorial dust jacket (some minor edgewear, otherwise a very fine example). Provenance : Jose Garcia Villa (b.1906), Puerto Rican poet (presentation inscription). FIRST EDITION, A FINE LITERARY ASSOCIATION COPY, INSCRIBED BY CUMMINGS TO JOSE GARCIA VILLA on the front free endpaper: "A gift to my friend Jos‚ Garcia Villa E.E. Cummings October 22 1943." This fine copy may have been one retained by Cummings and presented to Garcia Villa when the younger poet visited New York City. Garcia Villa was a close friend of Wallace Stevens and the two carried on a lengthy correspondence. (2). ...
