BIOGRAPHY:
Because his family moved from Boston to Minneapolis, John Rich launched his career in America's Midwest yet he was born in Boston on March 5, 1876. During the period in which John Sloan was an illustrator for the Philadelphia Inquirer and Press, the slightly younger John Rich was similarly employed at the Minneapolis Times. In the evenings he attended art classes. Convinced of his talent, in 1898 his parents sent him to New York to study at the Art Students League. He worked there until 1902 under various teachers including Robert Blum, George Bridgman, Kenyon Cox, Frank Duveneck, and John H. Twachtman. The following three years of instruction under Edmund Tarbell at the School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston ended in his winning of the Paige Traveling Scholarship (in 1905) for two years of independent study in Europe. Also in 1905, he won the Ayer Prize of $100 "for the best portrait executed by a regular pupil in the advanced class of painting." (Bulletin, Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, August 1905, p. 26). Once in France, Rich's sympathies toward impressionism became more pronounced, especially regarding informal contemporary subject matter, which the artist successfully incorporated into his work. Apparently, judging from Rich's later paintings, the avant-garde art movements in Paris of ca. 1905 (including the Salon d'Automne) had little influence on the artist, who worked in a late, decorative impressionistic style. After his return to America, Rich became an instructor at the Groton School in Boston (1912) and shared a studio with William V. Cahill. Two years later, Rich and Cahill moved to Los Angeles; Rich's family had moved from Minneapolis to Pasadena while he was in Europe. The two founded the School for Illustrating and Painting (Hughes, 1985, p. 386). In 1915, Rich exhibited The Blue Kimono (Maureen Murphy Fine Arts, Santa Barbara, California) at the Panama-Pacific International Exposition in San Francisco. Gerdts and South (1998, p. 191) describe the painting as a "well-worn subject of an elegantly posed and appointed woman in an interior." Rich's reputation as a painter expanded locally and later that year, his works were shown at the Los Angeles Museum (15-30 December 1915). Several more one-man shows followed. Cahill went his separate way in 1918, eventually ending up in San Francisco. The remainder of Rich's career was spent in Southern California and included teaching appointments at the University of Southern California and the Otis Institute. He died in Los Angeles, on March 30, 1954.While Rich's compositions seem to be somewhat contrived, his figures are successfully animated so that they appear to exist in an actual living environment. His application of color, however, seems to be somewhat mechanical. The Flowered Dress (Fleisher Museum, Scottsdale, Arizona), ca. 1920-1926, features a woman in repose, lost in a busy web of decorative patterns. This may represent Helen Wood, curator of the Los Angeles Museum, and the woman Rich married in 1920. Rich, perhaps more than other California impressionists, melded the delicate finesse of East Coast impressionism to the broad manner of the West Coast. In the 1930s, Rich's style showed a drastic change. Around 1934, he painted We Do Our Part, N.R.A. (Ries Collection, Oakland), in which impressionism has been replaced by the more realistic, hard-edged American Scene style. All that remains here of the Boston school is the composition, built on elegant curves and counter-curves.

Terms and Conditions

TERMS & CONDITIONS
Any of the following conditions of sale may be amended, waived, or modified in the sole discretion of Broward Auction Gallery. By placing a bid, whether present in the saleroom or by any other means, the buyer (bidder, purchaser) agrees to be bound by the following conditions of sale:

1) All property is sold in "as is" condition and all sales are final. Neither Broward Auction Gallery nor their consignor(s) makes any representations or warranties, express or implied, with respect to the property or the correctness of the catalogue or other description of the authenticity of authorship, physical condition, size, age, quality, rarity, importance, provenance, exhibitions, literature or historical relevance of the property or otherwise. The Auctioneer and the Consignor assume no risk, liability or responsibility for the authenticity or the authorship of any property identified in the online catalogue (that is, the identity of the creator or the period, culture, source or origin as the case may be, with which the creation of any property is identified herein).
If any implied warranties of merchantability or fitness for a particular purpose can be construed from the catalogue, auction, or bill of sale, such warranties are disclaimed by the Auctioneer and the Consignor. No statement in the online catalogue or made at the sale or in the Bill of Sale or invoice or elsewhere shall be deemed such a warranty or representation or an admission of liability. Moreover, the Auctioneer will not be held responsible for any variations in appearance of online photographs.
ANTIQUES: Additionally, antiques, by the very nature of their age, have wear that reflects their years of use. As a result, honest wear from use is to be expected and is sometimes the proof that an item is an antique. Normal wear will not be noted in the description.
Broward Auction Gallery shall not be responsible for obtaining any permits or licenses on behalf of purchaser and no sale shall be cancelled or refunded for lack of purchaser's noncompliance with permitting and licensing issues.

2) Notwithstanding the preceding condition, if within 14 days of the sale of any lot the purchaser of any painting gives notice in writing to the Auctioneer that the lot so sold is a counterfeit and, if within 7 days after such notice the purchaser returns to the Auctioneer in the same condition as when sold, and gives written proof from a recognized impartial expert which establishes beyond reasonable doubt that the returned lot is in fact a counterfeit and that this was not indicated by a fair reading of the catalogue or the Auctioneer's comments at the time of sale, the Auctioneer as agent for the Consignor will rescind the sale and refund the purchase price.

3) The highest bidder acknowledged by the auctioneer shall be the buyer. The auctioneer reserves the right to reject any bid and shall advance the bid at his/her sole discretion. In the event of a dispute between bidders, the auctioneer has absolute discretion to determine the successful buyer or to re-sell the disputed lot. If a dispute arises after the sale, Broward Auction Gallery record of the successful buyer and final sale price shall be conclusive. Broward Auction Gallery reserves the right to withdraw, combine or divide any lot at any time before bidding commences. The Auctioneer reserves the right to withdraw any lot at any time before, during, or after the auction without liability.

4) Unless the sale is advertised and announced as "without reserve", each lot is offered subject to a reserve and the Company may implement such reserves by bidding through its representatives on behalf of the Consignors. In certain instances, the Consignor may pay less than the standard commission rate where the Company or its representative is a successful bidder on behalf of the Consignor. Where the Consignor is indebted to the Company, the Company may have an interest in the offered lots and the proceeds there from other than the broker's Commissions, and all sales are subject to any such interest. No "buy" bids shall be accepted at any time for any purpose.

5) Some lots offered for sale may be subject to a reserve, which is a confidential minimum price below which a lot will not be sold. Under no circumstance will a reserve exceed the low estimate of the lot being offered. Consignors are prohibited from bidding on their own property, however, the auctioneer may implement reserves by bidding on behalf of the consignor. If bids on a lot fail to reach the reserve, the lot will be "passed" or "bought-in".

Under no circumstances, including, but not limited to, negligence, shall Broward Auction Gallery and its consignors be liable for lost profits or any special, incidental, or consequential damages that result from the use of, or the inability to use Internet Bidding Services.

8) Title of each lot passes upon the fall of the auctioneer's hammer to the highest acknowledged bidder. Under no circumstances will Broward Auction Gallery liabilities to a purchaser exceed the purchase price actually paid.

9) A 23% buyer's premium will be added to the sale of each lot, plus applicable taxes, unless exempt by law.
