        Est: $1,000 - $1,500

        Attributed to Sarah Miriam Peale (1800-1885) Portrait of a Young Gentleman, Possibly from Baltimore, MD, circa 1820s Bearing apocryphal cipher and partial date, "TS 180...," l.r., oil on canvas, framed. (29 1/2 in. x 24 1/4 in. (sight)) Provenance A Maryland collector. Note The subject's position, with the inclusion of a chair arm, and the way the figure's arm is leaned and the hands are rendered, bears a strong resemblance to other documented works attributed to Sarah Miriam Peale, including the Portrait of James Searles Woodward (1790-1862) in the collection of Woodford Mansion, Fairmount Park, Philadelphia. The original gilded wood and gesso frame is also identical to frames surrounding other portraits by Sarah, including the Portrait of William Jessop and Portrait of Mrs. Charles Jessop, both sold at Pook & Pook in Downingtown, Pennsylvania on May 13, 2006, lots 819 and 820. 39 1/2 in. x 33 1/2 in. (frame); lined; cracquelure; generally with green fluorescence under UV light, and evidence of scattered retouching and selective cleaning; repaired vertical tear to forehead; the cipher and partial date are later additions; frame is period, likely original, with some occasional losses to gesso and gilding commensurate with age

        Dec. 05, 2009

        Sarah Peale (MI/PA, 1800-1885), Wm. Walter

        Est: $3,000 - $5,000

        Sarah Peale (MI/PA, 1800-1885), Wm. Walter oil on canvas, circa 1820, unsigned, housed in the likely original gilt composition frame. The sitter, William Bicker Walter (1796 - 1822), was the son of William Walter (1771 - 1814) and Sarah Bicker (1774 - 1811). His paternal grandfather, the Reverend William Walter (1739 - 1800), a 1756 graduate of Harvard and rector of Trinity Church, Boston, was a firm loyalist whose lands, buildings, and belongings on South Street W. in Boston were confiscated and sold to Samuel Quincy and others. The sitter, who graduated from Bowdoin College in 1818 and studied Divinity at Cambridge; is best known as an author "possessing an active fancy and great faculty of versification." His best known work , "Sukey," was first published in 1821 by Cummings & Hilliard, E. Bellamy, Printer. In 1822, Walter began his journey of "southern states to give lectures on poetry, but died shortly after his arrival in Charleston, SC." (from The Loyalists of Massachusetts and the Other Side of the American Revolution by James H. Stark, publisher The Salem Press Co., 1910.) Prior to taking his leave for Charleston, on December 4, 1822, William Bicker Walker wrote his "Last Wishes." In this document he writes, "The picture of myself - painted in Baltimore by Miss Sarah Peale - I give to my sister Harriot L. Hunter - as the best and last pledge of that affection which I have ever entertained for her, from infancy .---In looking upon it, she will think of William." This portrait was most likely done in 1822, when both the sitter and the artist were in Baltimore. A copy of the will accompanies this lot. Also accompanying this lot is a "Preface" handwritten by William B. Walter in Boston in 1822 giving his philosophical discourse on "poetry, sonnets, and ditties." SS 35 x 28 in; DOA 44.75 x 33.25 in

        Attributed to Sarah Miriam Peale (American,

        Est: $5,000 - $7,000

        Attributed to Sarah Miriam Peale (American, 1800-1885), "Portrait of a Young Man in a Gray Vest", oil on canvas, unsigned, 30 in. x 25 in., in a richly carved period giltwood frame. Provenance: Private Collector, Baltimore. Note: The youngest daughter of James Peale, Sarah Miriam Peale was taught to paint by her father and her uncle, Charles Willson Peale, from an early age. She and her sister, Anna, often traveled together from Philadelphia to Baltimore and painted portraits of families and of public figures. It is feasible, therefore, that the two sisters may have had some of the same sitters in their portraits; the young man in the picture illustrated here bears a striking resemblance to the young man in the painting Four Children by Anna Claypoole Peale, listed and illustrated in the Smithsonian Art Inventories Catalog. Both the ruddiness of the cheeks and the treatment of the background in Portrait of a Young Man in a Gray Vest are reminiscent of Sarah's painting techniques in multiple examples of her portraiture. Both sisters were known to have painted the Jessop Family of Baltimore - through Sarah's well known Portrait of Charles Lavallen Jessop (Boy on a Rocking Horse), c. 1840, now in a private collection, and Anna's miniature watercolor on ivory, Mary Gorsuch Jessop with Charles Jessop on Reverse, n.d., also in a private collection. The resemblance of Charles Lavallen Jessop's features to both the young man in Four Children and in the painting illustrated here; the fact that Charles had three younger sisters (who could be the other three children in Four Children); and the fact that the Jessop family resided in Baltimore, indicate that this portrait of a young man in a gray vest may, in fact, be a portrait of Charles Lavallen Jessop.
