    Auction Date: Aug 05, 2021

    Estimate: $800 - $1,200

    Description:
    EDWARD PENFIELD (1866-1925)

    THE LAST OF THE KNICKERBOCKERS. Circa 1901.


    20x29 inches, 50 3/4x73 1/2 cm. Carqueville Litho Co., Chicago.
    Condition B / B-: tears, creases and abrasions at edges, in image and along sharp vertical and horizontal folds. Paper. Matted and framed.

    A rare and wonderful work by Penfield that is exceptional for both its size and its content. "Although Penfield continued at Harper's as Art Editor until 1901, his poster series stops in 1899" (Designed to Persuade, p. 15). In all, he designed over 75 images advertising the periodical, each one small enough to hang in a store window. After his tenure with the magazine, Penfield went on to design advertisements for other publishers and manufacturers. "However, the scope of his career is not well-documented in this second phase, and the works of the first two decades of this century are more difficult to rediscover" (ibid, p. 17). This unusually-sized promotion for a novel features many of the images that Penfield used in his Harper's posters, such as the horse-drawn sleigh and the dapper figures. "Studying coach design and history was a favorite hobby [of the artist], and he later became a collector of these vehicles, and wrote about them for Outing magazine. The unfinished manuscript of a book on coaches survives among family papers" (ibid p. 13). Bustling street scenes also figure prominently in his work, such as the crowds of passersby in People We Pass, circa 1896, (Swann sale 2016, lot 84) and his poster for Adler Suits & Overcoats (Sale 2099, lot 124), which presents a very similar scene.

    Description: ARTIST: EDWARD PENFIELD (1866-1925) SIZE: 22 1/4 x 28 1/8 in./56.5 x 71.4 cm PRINTER: DESCRIPTION: While occasionally lacking a solid definition, a Victory Girl was typically a young woman or teenager who patriotically offered her services during the war. By World War II, this term would come to be synonymous with a “good time girl;” however, here, it still maintains all the wholesomeness expected in a Penfield poster by simply showcasing a girl rowing her way toward (American) victory amidst the choppy waters.

    EDWARD PENFIELD (1866-1925) Golf Calendar for 1900. [GRAPHICS / POSTERS / CALENDAR / GOLF]

    Lot 272: EDWARD PENFIELD (1866-1925) Golf Calendar for 1900. [GRAPHICS / POSTERS / CALENDAR / GOLF]

    Auction Date: Jan 28, 2021

    Estimate: $8,000 - $12,000

    Description: EDWARD PENFIELD (1866-1925)
    Golf Calendar for 1900. Nine prints (two months doubled on a single sheet), each representing a hole on a nine-hole course, plus the cover, published by R.H. Russell, New York 1899. Each sheet measures 438x241 mm; 17 1/4x9 1/2 inches, with two hanging holes at top as printed. Condition varies (see report).

    Provenance: Private collection; thence to Dick McDonough, October 2019.

    Edward Penfield, among the most famous and prolific graphic artists of all time, is credited for initiating the American phase of the international phenomenon known as the "poster craze," the burst of creative commercial activity in the 1890s. During this period in Penfield's career, he was working as Art Editor at Harper's, where he produced many of his most famous posters and illustrated books, but was also quite active as a freelancer. Among those projects were a number of themed poster calendars, produced largely by R.H. Russell Publishers. "The posters created for the Golf Calendar 1900 are among the most beautifully colored images conceived by Penfield, with clear, flat shapes and striking compositions"--David Gibson, Designed to Persuade: The Graphic Art of Edward Penfield published by, and in conjunction with, the exhibition at The Hudson River Museum, Yonkers, May 20-July 15, 1984.

    The Golf Calendars were produced for 1899 and 1900. A comparison of images between them shows that they are nearly identical except for the cover and the illustration for February. Either is extremely uncommon, especially complete, and this is the only example of the 1900 calendar we could find appearing on the auction market in a search covering two decades.

    Edward Penfield, among the most famous and prolific graphic artists of all time, is credited for initiating the American phase of the international phenomenon known as the "poster craze," the burst of creative commercial activity in the 1890s. During this period in Penfield's career, he was working as Art Editor at Harper's, where he produced many of his most famous posters and illustrated books, including his highly collectible golf calendars (see lot 272). Though this image does not appear in the published calendars, its size and composition hint at the possibility of its being considered for one.

    Auction Date: Nov 15, 2020

    Estimate: $7,000 - $9,000

    Description: ARTIST: EDWARD PENFIELD (1866-1925) SIZE: 28 x 42 in./71 x 106.5 cm PRINTER: J. Ottmann, New York DESCRIPTION: Best known for his Harper?s series, this is one of three spectacular bicycle posters produced by Penfield in a larger format. It?s not just the size: they "show the true genius of the artist. In these and other posters, Penfield can be compared most favorably to Lautrec?his figures are at once introspective and yet powerful, gathering their impact from a delicate balance in composition and the use of wide areas of flat colors? (Bicycle Posters, p. 10). This printing bears the stamp of Sagot, Paris' foremost poster dealer. (Art Nouveau; Bicycles; American; Artist: Penfield)...

    Lot 410: Hart Schaffner & Marx : 7 Drawings. ca. 1920.

    Auction Date: Nov 15, 2020

    Estimate: $2,500 - $30,007

    Description: ARTIST: EDWARD PENFIELD (1866-1925) SIZE: Each approximately: 19 1/2 x 16 3/8 in./49.7 x 41.7 cm PRINTER: DESCRIPTION: War images might not be expected advertising materials for a men's department store, but Hart Schaffner & Marx opted for patriotic bravery when they commissioned Penfield to create these images at the end of World War I. They recall the American Revolutionary War, perhaps in an attempt to revive the bravado of protecting this new nation. Indeed, both the store and Penfield focused their practices on the war effort; Hart Schaffner & Marx turned their production from fashion to military uniforms in both WWI and WWII. The scenes here include the Aldens, the Wright Tavern in Concord, the Battle of Lexington, and the Boston Tea Party. Note that one drawing is the original design for the Washington Number (see No. 411). (Art Nouveau; American; War & Propaganda; Artist: Penfield)...

It's a perfect, succinct graphic narrative, both true to life and effortlessly hilarious. (Art Nouveau; American; Literary; Artist: Penfield)...
