Biography: John Frost, born in Philadelphia in 1890, was the son of the famous American Illustrator Arthur B. Frost. He studied art with his father and then in Paris with notable French and Italian masters. A sickly man, he spent time in a Swiss sanitarium to combat tuberculosis. Coming to Pasadena, California in the late teens to recuperate in a dry climate, he brought with him his French-style impressionism and poetically interpreted the California landscape, especially the desert. He died in Pasadena in 1937 and is considered a follower of Guy Rose.

1931 John Frost O/C Wooded Landscape

Lot 37: 1931 John Frost O/C Wooded Landscape

Auction Date: Mar 31, 2018

Estimate: $4,000 - $8,000

Description: This lot features an original 1931 oil on canvas wooded landscape painting by John Frost (American 1890 - 1937). Frost was an American artist who holds a high place in the California school of Impressionism. He was born in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania on May 14, 1890 and his initial art training came from his famous father, Arthur B. Frost who was known as an illustrator. Later John Frost traveled to France to study at the Academie Julian under Richard Miller and Jean-Paul Laurens. For reasons of health, Frost decided to relocate to Pasadena, California in 1918. In California he became a highly respected artist, his paintings show the influence of his training in French Impressionism. Inspired by his new surroundings, Frost glorified the California landscape with atmospheric and impressionistic renderings of the Sierra Nevada mountains, sunsets, meadows, the small town of Lone Pine, California, shacks in Palm Springs, the arid California desert with pink verbena flowers and the coastal sand dunes near Carmel. Frost exhibited and sold his paintings at the Stendahl Gallery that was located at the Ambassador Hotel in Los Angeles. He was a member of the California Art Club, Painters and Sculptors of Los Angeles and the Pasadena Society of Fine Arts. He was awarded the Gold Medal at the Painters and Sculptors in 1924. His works can be found in the Gardena High School collection, the Irvine Museum collection, Irvine, California and important private collections. John Frost died at the young age of forty-seven in Pasadena, California on June 5, 1937. Signed and dated "John Frost 1931-" lower left register. Measures 15." x 24". This piece comes from the Dickenson Estate of Knoxville, Tennessee. See Photos for Details. Shipping Available....

  • Provenance
    Private collection, Southern California.

    Literature
    Phil Kovinick, John Frost, A Quiet Mastery, Irvine, 2013, p. 95, half-page color illustration.

    John 'Jack' Frost, as Los Angeles Times art critic wrote, came "by his talent for art by the 'Divine Right' of inheritance." The son of legendary illustrator, Arthur Burdett "Bo" Frost and Emily Phillips, an extremely talented artist in her own right, he received his early teaching from his parents while in Morristown, New Jersey. Later his skills were enhanced when the family went to Europe in 1906, where he studied at the Acadèmie Julian in Paris with Jean Paul Laurens, and with Richard E. Miller in Paris and in Giverny, the mecca of Impressionism. He also came to know and visit Claude Monet. Unfortunately, in the midst of this rich experience, he contacted tuberculosis in 1911 and was admitted to the Davos Platz Sanatorium in the Swiss Alps, where he remained until the family (his brother, A.B. Frost, Jr., stayed behind in Paris) returned to the United States in 1914.

    During the next few years, Jack divided his time between the family home in Wayne, Pennsylvania, and a studio in New York City, where he entered the field of illustration, much to the disappointment of his father. Then, in 1916, he became fascinated by tales of the American West, and traveled there twice to experience and sketch the vast pictorial vistas and lifestyles of the people of Arizona and California in rural settings. He also embarked on a two-month motor and pack horse trek with Guy and Ethel Rose to the Eastern Sierra, Mammoth and Convict Lakes, stopping at various points to paint and fish along the way. While he was traveling, his parents moved to Madison, New Jersey, and Jack joined them upon his return in early 1917, to continue his career as an illustrator. Sadly, in December of 1917 the family learned of the death of his brother, Arthur, Jr., who was gaining recognition as a fine modernist painter. The Frosts relocated to Morristown in the following year.

    In need of a drier climate, Jack returned California in 1919, staying in Palm Springs; his parents joined him in December. There, in 1920, he met an old friend from Giverny, Alson Skinner Clark. In the same year, Bo rented a house in Pasadena, where Clark also settled. Subsequently, from that time Jack and Clark went on numerous sketching jaunts, until Jack's marriage to Priscilla Morgrage in 1922.

    Jack enjoyed his most creative years as a painter during the 1920s. In 1922, he was awarded an honorable mention at the Southwest Museum's first Competitive Exhibition of California Artists, featuring many of the state's most notable painters. In the following year, he received first place for landscapes at the event. Among countless other achievements during the decade, he was represented in three traveling exhibitions and two one-person shows, and received a commission to paint murals for the prestigious Greystone Mansion in Beverly Hills, owned by Edward Doheny, Jr. Frost had a one-person exhibition at Stendahl Galleries in the Ambassador Hotel in 1924. A painting in the 1924 show is described as 'Goats on a Hill'. It is possible that this is the same painting, but three separate paintings, exhibited in 1924 and 1925 have very similar titles.

    Goats on a Hillside, Pomona is a unique departure from many of Frost's work by 1924. Many of his San Gabriel region and desert paintings are devoid of figures or animals, as the focal point becomes the land and the light. In this painting, the artist tries his hand at capturing a more complicated scene. Close attention is paid to each animal, each shadow and each collection of color combinations along their bodies. A simple hillside is filled with a depth and texture thanks to the arrival of the hungry goats, while puffy clouds silently pass overhead. This is a strong example of Frost's talents at the peak of his career and his ability to vary his compositions and broaden his oeuvre in fresh directions.

Literature:
Phil Kovinick, John Frost: A Quiet Mastery, p. 169, illus p. 179

Having suffered from tuberculosis for more than twenty years, John Frost entered the Allenwood Sanatorium in central Pennsylvania for treatment. Following his discharge from the Sanatorium, in late 1935, he returned to his family's estate near Bryn Mawr. Frost's biographer Phil Kovinick writes of this period, "Following his return from the Allenwood Sanatorium, Jack was improved but never enjoyed robust health. Despite his condition, compounded by the financial problems of the estate, he sketched throughout most of the remainder of the year. Extant dated and signed canvases from this period are few. The already-mentioned On the Brodhead, featured in The Sportsman, is one. Others are In the Stream (1935) also a sporting subject, and Tranquil Reflections, an oil on board depicting an estate scene, providing mute evidence that Jack was painting in a much looser style, using broad brushstrokes. The latter work is inscribed "March 29, 1935" on the back. A number of other extant renderings in this freer style, undated and unsigned, also were executed at the time."

Maryland Marsh

Lot 522: Maryland Marsh

Auction Date: Jul 26, 2014

Estimate: $35,000 - $55,000

Description: John Frost, called Jack, was born to noted sporting artist A.B. Frost in Philadelphia in 1890. The younger Frost studied art with his father and at the Academie Julian before settling in Pasadena, California, for health reasons. He found success with his impressionistic California landscapes, selling through the Stendahl Gallery in the Ambassador Hotel.
In addition to his California Impressionist success, Frost continued to depict the sporting life in paint throughout his career. Eugene V. Connett III founded The Derrydale Press in 1927 and dedicated it to publishing the finest outdoor and sporting books and prints. In 1936 Connett's Derrydale Press published "Maryland Marsh" in an edition of 150. This rare John Frost sporting painting is the only work by the artist made into a print by Derrydale.
John Frost continued to hunt and paint with his father and fellow artist Guy Rose. He became a member of the California Art Club and the Pasadena Society of Fine Arts before succumbing to an early death in 1937.
