Peggy Bacon, Promenade Deck, 1920

Ships From: Boston, MA US

Description: Flint 47. One of six prints included in a folio titled "American Etchings", published in 1924 by the New Republic in an edition of about 500. Number of extant impressions unknown. Signed in pencil lower right margin: "Peggy Bacon"; titled in pencil lower left margin: "Promenade Deck". A fine impression in fine condition, aside from very light toning and foxing, as well as a small paper loss in the lower right corner, not extending to the image. Sheet measures 11 x 14 inches.Peggy Bacon was born in Ridgefield, Connecticut in 1895 to two painters: Charles Rosewell Bacon and Elizabeth Chase. As a result of her parents’ occupations, much of Peggy’s childhood revolved around the constant hunt for new painting locations in Nassau, France, New Hampshire and London, all the while being exposed to other painters and members of the art community. By 1914 Peggy Bacon had begun to pursue a professional career in art, joining the Art Student’s League, a group to which she would belong for the next six years. By 1919 she began to make drypoints that often reflected realist influence of her teachers George Bellows and John Sloan but her flattened forms and hardened contours indicated a more modern and abstract approach to art. After marrying fellow Art Student’s League member Alexander Brook, Bacon and Brook split their time between Provincetown, Rhode Island and Greenwich Village in New York City where they became valued members of the Woodstock art colony. During the 1920s, Bacon held several one-woman shows in New York while also illustrating children’s books. Much of her work was satirical and lighthearted and frequently commented on the New York art world. She also illustrated many ordinary events in the lives of city people, frequently giving these pieces a wry twist. Her satirical work culminated in 1934 with the Guggenheim Museum sponsoring her publishing a book entitled, “Off with Their Heads” that featured caricatures of prominent individuals. The great success of the book rocketed her to the forefront of modern satiric art but she ignored the increase in demand for her caricatures as she found them to be a hurtful theme. Bacon remained successful for the rest of her career, eventually joining a group of New York artists under the aegis of Gertrude Vanderbilt Whitney. Although she divorced her husband in 1940, Bacon continued to paint and took up writing. In 1953 she won the Edgar Allen Poe Mystery Award, given in recognition of the novel of the year, for her work The Inward Eye. Bacon retired to Cape Porpoise, Maine, and spent the rest of her days near her son, Alexander

Chauncey Ryder, [Walking on Cape Porpoise, Maine]

Ships From: Boston, MA US

Description: Signed in pencil lower right: "Chauncey F. Ryder". In fine condition aside from very minor toning within matburn.Chauncey Foster Ryder began to pursue an interest in painting between the ages of ten and twelve. In his early twenties he moved to Chicago for artistic instruction, studying first at the Art Institute and then at Smith’s Academy, where he became an instructor after his first year as a student. In 1901 he moved to France and enrolled in the Academie Julien, under Jean Paul Laurens and Raphael Colin; after two years there, he began to exhibit works at the annual Paris Salon, and showed works regularly there from 1903-1909. At this time he also developed a friendship with American artist Max Bohm, who profoundly influenced his style with his dramatic and moody compositions. 1907 was an important year for Ryder when the prominent New York art dealer, William Macbeth, began to represent him, selling the first of Ryder’s works after only two months of partnership. This was a lifelong business relationship, and Macbeth was responsible for the marketing of Ryder’s painting style, as well as his works, hanging, framing, and even titling the production that poured from Ryder's studio. That fall Ryder moved to New York City and began to show his work both in Paris and in New York, and finally in 1909 he opened a studio in New York. In 1910 Ryder began to travel through New England, the landscape of which provided much of the subject matter for his work. From this point until the end of his life, Ryder’s works gained great popularity due to his consistently recognizable style, what is called his “Ryder green…that was, in part, responsible for the pleasing quality and unique character of his work,”. Ryder began to undertake lithographs, in addition to the drypoint etchings, drawings, and watercolors he already produced, at the behest of Bolton Brown, one of the premier lithographers of his time. These lithographs were shown alongside his paintings at Macbeth’s gallery in New York.

Mihály Munkácsy, The Blind Milton Dictating

Ships From: Boston, MA US

Description: Born Michael von Lieb, Munkácsy was a renowned painter of genre scenes. As a youth he apprenticed under an itinerant painter before moving to Pest, Hungary, to seek tutelage with more established artists. He subsequently studied in Vienna, Munich, and Düsseldorf, before settling in Paris. Though he began his career with scenes of peasants and the poor, he gained fame for the emotional range and dynamic figure groupings of his historical and biblical paintings. He would later enjoy additional success painting salon scenes – images of domestic life and motherhood set within lavishly decorated interiors.In 1878 Munkácsy painted The Blind Milton Dictating “Paradise Lost” to His Daughters. The work was well received; art dealer Charles Sedelmeyer purchased and subsequently sold the piece, beginning a lucrative business relationship between himself and the artist. Munkácsy signed a ten-year contract with Sedelmeyer, bringing him fame and fortune in Paris and abroad. Paradise Lost was published in 1667, when John Milton was nearly sixty and had been blind for fifteen years. He wrote the epic poem entirely through the use of aides, friends, and family; Milton dictating the work to his three daughters was a favorite scene of artists. Munkácsy was known to have painted several versions of this tableau.

Werner Drewes, Aqueduct, 1965

Ships From: Boston, MA US

Description: Signed lower left: "Drewes".When Werner Drewes immigrated to the United States in 1930, he brought with him an active influence in German Expressionism and his formal training in the doctrines of the Bauhaus. At the Bauhaus, his most influential teachers included Paul Klee, Lyonel Feininger and Wassily Kandinsky who directed him toward the abstract style. While teaching at the Brooklyn Museum under the Federal Arts Project from 1934-36, Drewes concentrated on spreading this interest in German Expressionism and the avant-garde concepts of the Bauhaus. In an attempt to further attract American artists to these philosophies, Drewes helped found the American Abstract Artists Group in 1936, an organization that would eventually become a major force in the American art scene.

James Abbott McNeill Whistler, A Woman in Her Chemise, c.1858

Ships From: Boston, MA US

Description: In fine condition aside from pale staining and minor foxing.In a letter dated November 17, 2006, Margaret MacDonald states, 'I was very glad...to see the double-sided pen drawing of a young woman and confirm that it is, in my opinion, by James McNeill Whistler. It is a charming drawing done with a very fine pen, and resembles sketches done during Whistler’s early years in Paris, such as 'Reclining Lady' (private collection, MacDonald 214). It looks as if it was drawn from life, and records an intimate scene, showing a woman in her chemise, shoulders bare, half-dressed. Whistler’s mistress destroyed many of his early Parisian drawings, so this is a rare survival. I would date it to around 1857-1858.'

Robert Vickrey, The Blue Top, c.1954

Ships From: Boston, MA US

Description: Signed verso: "Robert Vickrey". Titled verso: "The Blue Top". In fine condition.Robert Vickrey was born in 1926. Vickrey attended Yale where he received his B.A. in 1947. He then went on to study at the Art Students League in New York, where he worked under Kenneth Hayes Miller and Reginald Marsh. Afterwards he returned to Yale to receive his Master in Fine Arts. Vickrey’s medium of choice was egg tempera, a process that requires the artist make their own paint by mixing finely ground color pigments, water, and diluted egg yolk. Typically praised for his skillful use of this medium, Vickrey rendered a realistic depiction of subjects and their surroundings, which frequently included textured surfaces that were made to appear highly tactile.Interesting to note is Vickrey’s ability to merge his highly realistic visual style with surreal undertones, as seen in The Blue Top. The artist admitted that his work has “strong psychological overtones” and the ethereal quality of his subjects is an intentional juxtaposition to his realistic depiction of the surrounding in his work. This contrast is what set Vickrey’s work apart.
