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.

Pierre-Auguste Renoir Drawing — Portrait of a Young Girl ”Fillette”

French Impressionist master Pierre-Auguste Renoir pen and ink drawing with ink wash of a young girl with a hat, entitled ”Fillette”. The drawing, created circa 1882, is signed with the initial, ”R”. Renoir, who had been painting Parisian scenes for many years, saw his fame take off when, along with other Impressionist painters, including Monet, Degas and Cezanne, his work was represented in the first Impressionist Exhibition in 1874. He painted scenes of people at work and play, often painting women and girls. He was known for his free brush strokes and the warm sensuality present in the light and color of his palette. Two of Renoir’s most famous paintings, ”Luncheon of the Boating Party” and ”Girl With a Hoop”, were completed during the early 1880’s when this drawing was made. The drawing, measuring 5.5” x 7.75”, is in fine condition. With provenance from Sotheby’s. Also featured in: (1) page 171, Vol. II of ”Pastels & Drawings of Pierre-Auguste Renoir” by Ambroise Vollard. Paris: 1918; (2) page 568, Vol. II of ”Renoir. Catalogue Raisonne of the Paintings, Pastels, Drawings and Watercolours 1882-1894” by Guy-Patrice & Michel Dauberville. Paris: 2009. Described here as watercolour and without mention of signature. Sold for $65,959.
