Gilbert Stuart Sold at Auction Prices

Portrait painter, Miniature painter, b. 1755 - d. 1828

Artist Gilbert Stuart, who was born in 1755, was America's most celebrated, most talented portraitist. The best-known Gilbert Stuart painting is his unfinished portrait of George Washington, known as the Athenaeum, which he started in 1796, but was still incomplete when he died. In between, Stuart was busy reproducing that portrait and completing his oeuvre of more than 1,000 portraits of celebrated Americans, including the first six U.S. presidents.

Artist Gilbert Stuart had an easy manner with his subjects, and although slow in his work, was commissioned again and again because he recreated exacting, natural likenesses that pleased the eye of his patrons. He used bold, florid, bravura brushstrokes in oil, lending an illustrious appearance to Gilbert Stuart's portrait subjects.

          Est: $40,000 - $80,000

          This masterful portrait set in a walnut frame, depicts George Washington in black velvet suit with white lace jabot at his neck, and powdered hair. Dating to the first quarter of the1800s, this unsigned oil on canvas is attributed to Gilbert Stuart, who painted approximately 75 "Athenaeum-type" portraits of Washington. Though each version is clearly based on one source, the individual works often have distinct appearances, with variations in costume and/or background. Accompanied by an Exhibition Book (see images). CONDITION: painting has been re-lined in the past, appears to be on original stretcher bars, minor tears & repairs in area of lower quadrant, in-painting noted under black-light examination, uneven varnish throughout. PROVENANCE: Purchased in 1991 from Hessney's auction house in Geneva, New York; the painting had previously been in a private collection in Auburn, NY, the home of an Ambassador in Foreign Service. After 1991, the portrait hung for many years at the consignor's bed & breakfast in Chincoteague, Virginia. Born in North Kingstown, Rhode Island, the son of a snuff-mill owner, Gilbert Stuart had the baptismal name of Stewart but later changed it to the Jacobite spelling, wanting to be associated in name with the royal Stuart family of England. Stuart began his career as a provincial portrait painter in the American colonies and eventually went to London for further training. Under the tutelage of expatriate Benjamin West, Stuart quickly mastered the painterly brushwork of the Grand Manner, the favored style of Sir Joshua Reynolds. Stuart realized that portrait painting could be a very lucrative business, so he opened what became a successful portrait studio in London. His extravagant tastes however left him with ever-growing debts, which he avoided by fleeing in 1787 to Ireland and establishing another profitable studio. In 1792, Stuart returned to America and became the most highly regarded portraitist of his day with nearly everyone in prominence in the government becoming one of his subjects. Always low on money and known for erratic behavior, which some attributed to his genius, he remained ever pursued by his creditors. Gilbert Stuart is buried in Boston in an unmarked pauper's grave. Overall Size: 35 1/2 x 30 1/2 in. Sight Size: 29 1/4 x 24 in.

          Est: $10,000 - $15,000

          Attributed to Gilbert Stuart (American, 1755-1828) Portrait of Mrs. Isaac Chauncey Circa 1818 oil on panel 25 1/2 x 20 3/4 inches (sight). Catherine Sickles (circa 1778-1855) married American naval commander Isaac Chauncey (1772-1840) around 1794. The couple lived in Fairfield, Connecticut and had three children, Charles W. Chauncey, John S. Chauncey, and Peter S. Chauncey. Isaac Chauncey served during the Franco-American War, both Barbary Wars, and the War of 1812, where he famously commanded all naval forces on both Lake Ontario and Lake Erie. Following his accomplishments on the Great Lakes, Isaac was named commodore and was given command of the New York navy yards. Around 1818, Gilbert Stuart painted a distinguished portrait of Isaac on panel, and he likely executed this portrait of Catherine at the same time. Isaac's portrait was given to Secretary of the Navy Robert Smith, thence to the Lyceum of the Brooklyn, New York Navy Yard in 1842. It was later transferred to the U.S. Naval Academy in Annapolis, Maryland, as discussed in Lawrence Park's Gilbert Stuart: An Illustrated Descriptive List of his Works, Vol. 1 (1926, New York), number 150, page 229. Catherine's portrait, by contrast, remained in the family, passing from her son Peter Schermerhorn Chauncey (1810-1866) to his daughter Augusta Chauncey Anderson (1835-1919) and then to her son, Peter Chauncey Anderson (1868-1933). Peter's two surviving children, Elbert Chauncey Anderson (1903-1941) and Olive Yale Anderson Wood (1907-1987), inherited the painting and shared in its ownership. While in their possession, Catherine's portrait was exhibited twice, first at the Union Club in 1934 and again at the Newport, Rhode Island gallery of M. Knoedler & Company in 1936. The associated Newport exhibition catalogue, Portraits by Gilbert Stuart, contains a brief essay: €œMrs. Chauncey was the wife of Commander Isaac Chauncey, who was acting Captain of the Chesapeake in 1802, and later Commander of New York Navy Yard; from 1833 to 1840 he was the President of the Board of Navy Commissioners. . . [The painting] was inherited by Mr. E. Chauncey Anderson, who was the great-great-grandson of the sitter; and it is owned jointly with Mrs. Horatio C. Wood. III, who is also the present owner of the crescent pin worn by the subject of the picture.€ (Portraits by Gilbert Stuart (1936, Newport), number 5, pages 4€”5). Most recently, the painting was owned by direct descendants of Olive Yale Anderson Wood and Horatio C. Wood III.

          Sep. 30, 2021

          Attributed to Gilbert Stuart (American, 1755-1828)

          Est: $30,000 - $50,000

          Attributed to Gilbert Stuart (American, 1755-1828) Pair of Portraits: Moses Michael Hays (1739, New York - 1805, Boston) and Rachel Myer Hays (1738, New York - 1810, Boston) Circa 1790 oil on canvas   25 x 20 inches.   Moses Michael Hays (1739-1805) was arguably the most important Jewish citizen of Colonial and early Federalist America. He was a merchant, civic leader, philanthropist, and longtime Freemason, who lived in New York, Boston and Newport, Rhode Island. In 1769, Hays was admitted as a Freeman of the City of New York, where his occupation is listed as watchmaker. (Harry Smith and J. Hugo Tasch, Moses Michael Hays: Merchant- Citizen- Freemason (Boston, Moses Michael Hays Lodge A.F. & A.M., 1937) p. 33) Hays was also a family man. He married Rachel Myers Hays (1738-1810), the sister of New York silversmith Myer Myers (1723-1795), on August 13, 1766, and together they had six children- Judith, Rebecca, Catherine, Judah, Sarah, and Slowey. Judah (1772-1832) was their lone son and was a founder of the Boston Atheneum. (ibid, p.39) They also helped raise the children of Moses Michael's deceased sister, Reyna Hays Touro (1743-1787)- Judah (1775-1854), Abraham (1777-1822) and Rebecca Hays (1779-1833). Moses Michael was born in New York City on May 9, 1739, to Judah Hays (1703-1764) and Rebecca Michaels (1709-1801). Judah, immigrated to New York City in 1720 from Holland, along with his five brothers- Jacob, Isaac, Solomon, Abraham, and David. Judah was naturalized in 1729 and recorded as a Freeman in New York City on December 2, 1735. He became a successful ship merchant, and in October 1760, one of his ships, The Duke of Cumberland, was granted a privateer commission. The small, 160-ton ship was fitted with sixteen guns and carried a crew of fifty, to prey on enemy vessels and commerce during the French and Indian War. (ibid, pp. 28-29) It is thought that Hays moved his family from New York to Boston after Washington withdrew from the Battle of Long Island in August 1776. Upon arriving in Boston, Hays engaged in the insurance business opening an office at 68 State Street. He prospered in this field and gained the respect and confidence of those he worked with. Soon after the end of the Revolutionary War, the leading merchants of Boston, including Moses Michaels Hays, saw the need for a bank and took steps to form one during the winter of 1783-84. On July 5, 1784, they successfully opened Massachusetts Bank, now the Bank of America. The first name entered on the bank ledge was that of Moses Michael Hays, whose initial deposit was $14,500. (ibid, p.36) Hays came to Freemasonry as a young man. A 1769 warrant issued by Provincial Grand Master of the 'Moderns" in New York, George Harison, appoints Moses Michael Hays to be 'Master of King David's Lodge in the city of New York." He later took the warrant to Newport, Rhode Island where he opened the third lodge in that state in June 1780. (ibid, pp. 45-46) Hays also served as Master of the Massachusetts Lodge of Boston from December 1782 to May of 1785 when the lodge was closed. When it reopened in 1788, Hays served as Grand Master until 1792. When he once again reelection to the post in 1791, he appointed Paul Revere to be his deputy. Moses Michael Hays died on his 64th birthday, May 9, 1805. A few days later the Boston Centinel posted a tribute to his memory: "On Thursday evening, M.M. Hays, Esq Aet 64. [sic] In the character of the deceased, there is much worthy of our admiration- much for our imitation. Possessed by nature of a strong intellect, there was a vigor in his conceptions of men and things which gave a seeming asperity to his conversation, which was ever frank and lucid. He walked abroad fearing no man, but loving all. Under his roof dwelt hospitality- it was an asylum for friendship, the mansion of piece. He was without guile, detesting hypocrisy as he despised meanness. Take him for all in all, he was indeed a man. In his death, society will mourn the loss of a most valuable citizen; his family, the kindest of husbands, the most indulgent of fathers. But what consolation shall we offer to assuage the violence of their grief?- Why, this is all- the recollection of his virtues;- and that as he lived, so he died: that to his last moment the cheerfulness and benevolence of his whole life, wasted not on his falling brow. Calm, and without a sigh, he sunk to rest, and is now secure in the bosom of his Father and our Father, of his God and our God." (ibid, p. 42) The Appendix Harry Smith and J. Hugo Tasch's 1937 Moses Michael Hays: Merchant- Citizen-Freemason discusses portraits of the Hays family, suggesting that the current work may depict Hays' eldest son Judah. "Only one portrait is extant of Moses Michael Hays. It is a copy of an original attributed to Gilbert Stuart, destroyed by fire at Richmond, and is now hanging in the Masonic Temple at Boston. The frontispiece which adorns this volume is from a photographic copy of the Temple painting. A portrait of Hays' son, Judah, which was not destroyed in the fire that ruined the one of the father, is still in Richmond being owned by Mrs. William C. Preston of that city. Portraits also exist, by Stuart, of other members of the family, notably Samuel Myers, Moses Myers and Mrs. Moses Myers' Lawrence Park's Gilbert Stuart: An Illustrated Descriptive List of his Works, Vol. 1 (1926, New York) discusses the above-mentioned portrait of Judah, which is listed as catalog number 386, on page 392. It goes on to describe the painting, and that it had been badly scorched by a fire in 1912. The portrait of Judah was passed to his brother in-law, Samuel Myers (1755-1836) of Richmond, Virginia, then passed to his daughter, Ella Myers, who died unmarried in 1892. The portrait was then inherited by her nephew, Major Edward Dana Trowbridge Myers, then to his daughter Elizabeth Myer, who married William C. Preston of Richmond, Virginia. It was then passed down through the Preston family to the current owner. This pair of portraits descended along the same family line and were likely descended in the family of Moses and Rachel's eldest daughter, Judith. Provenance: Judith Myers (1767-1844), the eldest child of Moses Michael and Rebecca Myers Hays, who married Samuel Myers (1755-1836); to their son, Samuel Hays Myers (1799-1849), who married Elizabeth Kennon Mordecai (1809-1861); to their son, Edmund Trowbridge Dana Myers (1830-1905), who married Frances Colquhoun Trigg (1838-1899); to their eldest daughter, Eliza Kennon Myers (1860-1934) who married William Carruthers Preston (1862-1901); to their son, Edmund Myers Preston (1898-1945), who married Jane Daves Strudwick (1899-1996); to their eldest daughter, Elizabeth Myers Preston (1926-2017), who married John Barclay Lottimer (1922-2007), to their children, the present owners.
