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 drawing, pen and ink 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.

Rembrandt Peale’s Painting of “Napoleon”

1812 portrait of Napoleon Bonaparte Rembrandt Peale painting, noted American Neoclassical painter and son of acclaimed artist Charles Willson Peale. Painted by the famed portrait artist who captured the likenesses of nearly all of the important statesmen of the 18th century, including George Washington and Thomas Jefferson. This compelling 22.5″ x 27.5″ oil on canvas comes with a fascinating backstory. Since Bonaparte was unwilling to sit for any artists, Peale spent hours sketching the Emperor on public occasions, such as during the procession of deputies in the Champ de Mars where Bonaparte sat still for hours on end. Contrary to the famously romanticized, larger than life interpretations of the French dictator by such artists as Jacques-Louis David, here Peale offers a very human-scale Bonaparte. Peale employs a palette of muted burgundies and blacks, soft lighting and an echo of the background wine-colored drapery in Bonaparte’s scarf. Painting comes with a transcript of the letter Peale gave to artist Thomas Hollingsworth Morris, original owner of the portrait, datelined Philadelphia, 26 January 1858. Letter reads as follows: “Dear Sir, The Portrait you allude to, is an Original Study of the Head of Napoleon Bonaparte, which I made in Paris, in the Year 1812 (not when he was 1st Consul)–but Emperor). It was the result of many paintings, after seeing him at Reviews & other occasions – for he had decided never to sit to any Artist, after the design to assassinate him by Cerachi [sic] the Sculptor who was making a Bust of him–The same Cerachi who was in this Country & made a Bust of our Washington, which is more like Cerachi himself than like Washington. He was guilliotined [sic]. This Head, the effort of repeated Memories, David the Emperor’s Painter thought a good likeness. I am sorry you did not subscribe your address, as I should like to see this Portrait again when I visit Baltimore. Respectfully Yours, Rembrandt Peale (signed).” An excellent portrait of the legendary military genius by an American master portraitist. Excellent Rembrandt Peale painting. Sold for $32,000.

Antonio Jacobsen Painting

Antonio Jacobsen’s oil on canvas, “The Vaderland.” The 1909 maritime painting by Danish-born American artist Antonio Nicolo Gasparo Jacobsen, depicts a realistic steamship in black with red trim, cutting across choppy ocean waves. The tormented sky behind the cruising vessel, depicted in an array of moody blues and greys, swirls with dark clouds as violent and ominous as the icy black & grey ocean waves in the foreground. Jacobsen’s eye for ship detail established him as the premier nautical artist of his day. An American folk art hero born in Copenhagen in 1850, Jacobsen’s works reflect the history of domestic and international ships. A prolific painter and creator of some 6,000 paintings, Jacobsen came from a long line of Danish violin-makers. He left his family in Denmark and arrived in New York in the early 1870’s. Like many immigrants, Jacobsen went to New York City’s Battery Park seeking work, and passed his days sketching ships that sailed in and out of the harbor. A representative from Marvin Safe Company noticed his drawings and offered him a job decorating safes. Jacobsen’s detailed artwork, drenched with his personal passion for nautical subjects, led to commissions from sea captains and ship owners and, inevitably, steamship companies to document their entire fleet. The Old Dominion Line, The Fall River Line and The White Star Line are among the steamship companies that commissioned Jacobsen to paint portraits of their sea vessels. Jacobsen died in Newark, NJ in 1921. Portrait measures 36″ x 22″ (41.5″ x 27.5″ with frame) and shows very light wear along right edge, not noticeable except upon close inspection. A beautiful and foreboding image by one of the most sought-after nautical portraitists in American art.  Sold for $13,771.

Marjorie Reed Western Landscape

Marjorie Reed original landscape painting. Oil on canvas, signed to lower right. Measures 24″ x 20″; 29″ x 25″ framed. Marjorie Reed was born in 1915, the daughter of artist Walter Reed, an illustrator for Walt Disney. She was raised in Los Angeles, but from a young age yearned for the life of the country. After attending the Chouinart Art School and the Art Center school in Los Angeles, she found her most significant tutelage with renowned California landscape artist Jack Wilkinson Smith. She moved dozens of times throughout her adult life, living primarily in Arizona and Southern California. Her paintings often feature stagecoaches, cowboys, horses and other iconography of the west. Horses were a particular passion of Reed’s, an interest she traced to her girlhood dream of living on a ranch. In this painting, she depicts a placid scene of a Native American couple on a pack mule in the midst of a sprawling desert. Light general soiling to canvas. Excellent condition. Sold for $3,267.
