        • William Sidney Mount (American, 1807-1868) Oil
          Mar. 23, 2024

          William Sidney Mount (American, 1807-1868) Oil

          Est: $2,000 - $3,000

          This is an original work of art attributed to William Sidney Mount (American, 1807-1868) oil on canvas of a woman and children from the Sjaardema Art Collection. The piece shows an oil painting on stretched canvas in an original period early-to-mid 19th century gold gilted ornate frame. William Sidney Mount (born 1807; died 1868) was a prolific 19th-century American oil painter. William Sidney Mount grew up on a farm in Setauket, Long Island, and was the first American-born genre painter of significance to depict the daily lives and tasks of the average citizen. He worked during a time when other artists emulated the European academic tradition of painting historical, religious, or literary scenes, yet Mount remained steadfast and depicted rural American subjects in a skillful, realistic style. Mount was influenced by the artwork of British genre artists Hogarth and Wilkie, whose engravings were popular in the United States. However, Mount's scenes are undoubtedly American in subject, such as Rustic Dance After a Sleigh Ride, exhibited at the National Academy of Design. Mount's paintings were popular among the growing number of newly rich collectors, many of whom came from country towns such as those that Mount painted. Mount's best-known patron was Luman Reed, who offered to pay for Mount to study art in Europe. Mount declined "For fear I might be induced by the splendor of European art to tarry too long, and thus lose my nationality. We have nature, it speaks to every one and what efforts I have made in art have been appreciated by my countrymen." While a boy, Mount recalled that his curiosity with painting was piqued when his younger sister Ruth began painting lessons at home. His oldest brother Henry was the first member of the Mount family to make a living as an artist and William first trained as his apprentice. From 1826 to 1827, Mount was among the first students to study art at the National Academy of Design in New York City. In 1829, Mount and another brother, Shepard ,set up a studio and painted portraits. In 1830, he returned to Stony Brook, Long Island, where he lived and painted for the remainder of his life. Mount's success spread nationally and internationally with the reproduction of his paintings into popular prints and later into color lithographs published by the French firm, Goupil and Company. His paintings are housed in numerous public collections including The Metropolitan Museum of Art, Corcoran Gallery of Art, National Gallery of Art, Brooklyn Museum of Art, Art Institute of Chicago, and the Stony Brook Museum of American Art. This painting shows exquisite detail of a woman holding her two children in a rural Long Island home sitting on the edge of her bed in the cramped room with her spinning wheel at her feet. The artwork is marked below with a brass plaque identifying the piece as being from (William) Sidney Mount 1807-1868, American, dating the painting to circa 1835 and stating it as being in the style of the Dutch Masters, oil with a reference from Davenport, Benezit. The artwork itself is overall well kept with the original painting being in good condition. There is a small approx.. 3/8” x 3/8” puncture at the center which could be repaired; as well the right side shows a long dark spindle with white cloudiness to it, likely a touch up or old damage, similarly seen to the left of the woman on the bed., The frame shows some small chipping to the elaborate plaster work and carvings but displays beautifully and is in solid structural condition. The artwork canvas itself measures 17.25” x 12 5/8” and the frame is 22 5/8" x 18 1/8”. The work was identified as being a William Sidney Mount through extensive research by the Sjaardema's, though unsigned. Provenance: From the renowned collection of Henry and Jean Sjaardema.*

          William Sidney Mount (American, 1807-1868)

          Est: $2,000 - $4,000

          William Sidney Mount (American, 1807-1868) Portrait of Elizabeth Letitia Russell Penfield, Possibly a Mourning Portrait circa 1833 oil on canvas illegibly signed or initialed, lower right 30 x 25 inches. Provenance: Sarah Pettibone (1788-1960), Waterbury, Connecticut; by descent within her family to Gertrude Ella Weed Billington (1869-1951), Savannah, Georgia; Mr. Otto M. Wasserman, New York City, New York; Purchased by the Montclair Art Museum, Montclair, New Jersey, Florence O. Long Acquisition Fund, 63.53, 1963; Christie's Fine American Paintings, Drawings, and Sculpture, March 10, 2010, Lot 175; Market Auctions, Lake Worth, Florida, April 6, 2023, Lot 26. Literature: M.S. Kushner, A. Anreus, M. Grzesiak and V. Wageman, Three Hundred Years of American Painting: The Montclair Art Museum Collection, New York, 1989, p. 166, no. 334, illustrated. Elizabeth Letitia Russell was born in 1804. She became the second wife of Josiah Penfield (1785-1828), a silversmith and watch and clockmaker originally from Fairfield, Connecticut. The couple wed on December 23, 1823, in Chatham County, Georgia, where they lived until Elizabeth’s death on May 11, 1833. Around this time, William Sidney Mount, struggling to find a foothold as a history painter, began accepting commissions for death or mourning portraiture to make ends meet. He returned to his hometown of Setauket, New York beginning in 1832, just across the Long Island Sound from Connecticut, where Josiah Penfield’s extended family still lived. Penfield had preceded Elizabeth in death on September 12, 1828, so if the portrait offered here was indeed a postmortem commission, the exact circumstances remain nebulous. However, Mount was known among clients for his practice of attending the wake or even visiting the deathbed of the deceased, where he made sketches and took notes for later work in his studio. The resulting portraits, formal and commemorative, often included symbolic, organic details, such as bodies of water or plants. The verdant island with sailboats seen at the lower right corner serves as this pictorial device in the Penfield portrait. According to paperwork from the Montclair Art Museum, which acquired this portrait in 1963, the work passed from a Sarah Pettibone of Waterbury, Connecticut, purportedly the mother of the sitter, to a Mrs. Robert Billington, identified as her niece. The exact chain of custody proves slightly more complex, albeit with a commensurate increase in the level of intrigue. Genealogical records in both Chatham County, Georgia, and variably throughout Connecticut confirm that Sarah Bolles Pettibone (1778-1860) was the mother of Josiah Penfield’s first wife, Sarah (1795-1818). Though Sarah Pettibone is buried in Savannah along with her daughter and husband John, the U.S. Federal Census of 1860 lists her as a resident of Waterbury, Connecticut, at the home of her son, Dr. Philo Guiteau, one of two children born after Sarah Pettibone’s marriage to her second husband. It is possible that she remained close to the Penfield family and kept this portrait after the death of her son-in-law’s second wife. After Sarah Pettibone died in 1860, the painting seems to have passed within her family in Georgia to Gertrude Ella Weed Billington (1869-1951), the daughter of Savannah Bank and Trust President and railroad magnate Joseph D. Weed. Both the Weeds and the Pettibones had connections in both Connecticut and Georgia, so it is possible that the branches of these two prominent families intersected at some juncture, if not by marriage, then likely by acquaintance, and the term “niece” may have been used colloquially to reference a close family friend. Gertrude Weed Billington served as the executrix of her father’s substantial estate, assuming control of his financial assets and personal property, which may have included the painting. It was subsequently purchased by the museum from Otto M. Wasserman (1901-1998), recorded as an antique dealer in the U.S. Federal Census of 1950, who possibly assisted Weed Billington with her father’s estate or even handled her own following her death in 1951.

          The Power of Music. W.S. Mount (1807-1868). Lithograph. New York: Goupil Vibert & Co., 1848. 20 x 22 3/4 inches sheet. William Sidney Mount’s The Power of Music is an iconic American painting in large part because Mount’s ostensible message about race, which is embedded in the composition, seems undermined by the figures. Mount clearly intended the painting to convey the idea that art has the power to bridge the separate spaces of whites and blacks.

(engraving by Joseph Alexander Adams, 1803-1880, after the painting and entitled Boy on a Fence after Country Lad on a Fence) In 1834, a critic for the New-York Mirror described Country Lad on a Fence as "very simple; merely a country lad sitting upon a fence on his way home after the labours of the day; waiting, perhaps, for some loitering companion-or it may be, listening in rapt suspense, to the rural music that floats upon the air in summer evenings; the tinkle of the distant cow-bell, the faint cawing of the homeward-journeying crows, the wild, but not unpleasing scream of the night-hawk, and the melancholy wailing cry of the whip-poor-will.The painter, Mount, is fast and justly rising in the public estimation, and the day is not far distant when his rural scenes will be called upon as treasures."["The Picture of a Boy on a fence,' New-York Mirror 12, no. 18 (Nov. 1, 1834), as quoted in Deborah J. Johnson, William Sidney Mount: Painter of American Life, NY, 1988,p. 28.] Lance Humphries, an authority on the collection of Robert Gilmor, Jr., writes of the present work, "In 1831 William Sidney Mount painted this early composition, which by the time it was included in the National Academy of Design exhibition in 1832 was owned by the artist Asher B. Durand. Titled in the exhibition Sketch from Nature, a review described it as a 'pretty piece, representing a country lad resting himself on an old rail fence,' while generally observing that Mount was young, and developing his own style. In late 1833 Mount apparently exhibited the work again in New York, this time at the American Academy of the Fine Arts, although it does not appear in the catalogue for that year. Writing to Gilmor in November 1833, Mount requested that the publisher of The New-York Mirror, George P. Morris, be allowed to make an engraving of the painting 'which you purchased of me now exhibiting at the American Academy.' Gilmor informed Mount that he had no objection, although requested a copy of the engraving once completed, and hoped that the painting would be sent before the winter closed the rivers to navigation. "The engraving was published a year later, appearing in the November 1, 1834 edition of The New-York Mirror. The brief article which it accompanied discussed the importance of engravings in encouraging the arts, noting that 'the engraving which occupies a portion of this column, affords sufficient evidence that we speak not unadvisedly. It is by Adams, from the delicious little painting by Mount, which was so much admired in the exhibition of the National Academy. The subject is very simple; merely a country lad sitting upon a fence on his way home after the labours of the day,' Notably, although little narrative is inherent in the composition, the author supplied several scenarios of why the boy might be 'loitering' on the fence, including the sights and sounds he may have witnessed. Mount painted several paintings on the theme of a boy on a fence, but in his records noted that the picture painted in 1831 and engraved by Adams for The New-York Mirror was the work sold to Gilmor. Although Gilmor requested that Mount send him an impression of the engraving, it is not known whether one was sent. When it appeared, brief notices about the exceptional quality of the engraving appeared in the Baltimore papers, noting that American engravers on wood were attaining 'a degree of excellence seldom surpassed.' "Gilmor retained this painting throughout his life, informing his friend Jonathan Meredith in 1844 that he had this work, Mount's 'first picture of the boy getting over the fence I bought in the presence of Trumbull at the Academy, when it was left alone unsold, because I discovered merit in the sign painter as he was then.' He exhibited the piece in the 1848 exhibition at the Maryland Historical Society, there titled Boy getting over a Fence, Throg's Point, N.Y. Readily identifiable in Gilmor's estate inventory as 'Boy on the Fence,' which was displayed in the halls, it is probably the 'Mount' that he mentions in an 1848 letter to his niece Susan Smith Gilmor was in the hall, hanging below a landscape by George Morland. This painting was apparently distributed to Gilmor's nephew William Gilmor, although it does not appear on a list Robert Gilmor III created in Gilmor's 1823 catalogue of William's pictures. In William's 1863 sale, the painting, titled Boy getting over a Style, was purchased by William's nephew Robert Gilmor IV, who appears to have been purchasing at the sale for a number of Gilmor family members. Although twentieth century publications list the painting as unlocated identified as unlocated in the literature throughout the twentieth century, Country Lad on a Fence recently reemerged in a Baltimore collection."
