1947 Oscar for “A Double Life” — Best Actor Award Given to Ronald Colman

Oscar statuette awarded to Ronald Colman for “Best Actor” for the 1947 film, “A Double Life.” This “A Double Life” Oscar is one of the last to be publicly available, as award recipients were forbidden to sell their Oscars after 1950. The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences presented the award to Coleman on 20 March 1948 at the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles. English actor Colman co-starred with Signe Hasso and Edmond O’Brien in this film noir about an actor whose mind becomes affected by the character he portrays. Two engraved plaques are placed on opposite sides of the pedestal. One reads, “Academy of / Motion Picture / Arts and Sciences / First Award / 1947”. The other reads, “Academy First Award / To / Ronald Colman / For His Performance in / ‘A Double Life'”. The figure and film reel, composed of gold-plated britannium measuring 10.25″ tall, top the pedestal, bringing the total height to 13.25″. The pedestal’s diameter measures 5″ and the award weighs 6 pounds. Moderate tarnishing to statuette and chipping to base; small tears and edge wear to green felt. Overall in very good condition. Sold for $206,250.

Norman Rockwell Oil on Canvas Painting of Richard Nixon — The National Portrait Gallery Study for ”Mr. President (Richard Nixon)”, Painted in 1968

Norman Rockwell oil on canvas painting of Richard Nixon, signed ”Norman / Rockwell” at lower right. Painting is the study for ”Mr. President (Richard Nixon)”, which resides in the National Portrait Gallery, Smithsonian Institution, and was published in the 4 February 1969 issue of ”Look” magazine, captioned ”Weighed, yet buoyed, by the American past and present, Richard M. Nixon, 37th President, faces the future in this Rockwell portrait”. 

Rockwell painted this study in late 1968 of then President-Elect Richard Nixon, a man whose portrait he found ”elusive” but whose features here are unmistakenly Nixon, revealing at the same time both the guardedness and warmth of the 37th President. As the premiere portraitist of the 20th century, one would expect no less from Rockwell. Oil on canvas measures 14” x 11”. Provenance is from Judy Goffman Fine Art of New York, and then subsequently the Charles E. Sigety Collection. Exhibited at the Mississippi Museum of Art in ”Norman Rockwell: The Great American Storyteller” from 2 March-15 May 1988, no. 64. Painting is in very good condition, with a stretcher bar mark along upper edge. Wax lined, with no inpainting. Sold for $125,000.
