Stolen for 40 Years, Norman Rockwell Masterwork May Bring $1 Million at Heritage Auctions

American Art Auction offers fresh-to-market paintings, works on paper and sculptures Nov. 3 in Dallas

 

DALLAS, Texas (Oct. 13, 2017) – Recently returned to a family after it was stolen more than 40 years ago, Norman Rockwell’s endearing Lazybones (Boy Asleep With Hoe), also known as Taking a Break, is expected to sell for more than $1 million in Heritage Auctions’ Nov. 3 American Art Auction in Dallas. The 1919 Saturday Evening Post cover makes its auction debut, highlighting an exceptional array of Golden Age illustration.

Purchased for less than $100 in 1954 and stolen in June of 1976, Rockwell’s painting stands as one of the artist’s first Saturday Evening Post covers, produced in 1919 when he was only 25. Lazybones illustrates not simply the classic Rockwell subject of childhood, but the quintessential American prankster-adventurer, Huck Finn. With his straw hat and bandana, work shirt, and tattered pants with suspenders, Rockwell’s character comes straight out of the pages of Mark Twain’s celebrated novel. Not least, the painting has its own wild back-story, ripped from the headlines, as it was taken from Robert and Teresa Grant’s house in New Jersey during a well-planned burglary. With the help of special FBI agents, the painting was recovered and returned to the family in March.

“The provenance of this masterwork is as remarkable as the painting itself,” said Aviva Lehmann, Director of American Art at Heritage Auctions. “We are thrilled to bring this classic Rockwell to auction, and find its new home.”

Heritage is also pleased to present The Golden Age: Property from a Distinguished New York Collection.  Comprised of 43 works spanning the Golden Age of Illustration, the single-owner collection embodies an era of unprecedented excellence in magazine and book illustration. The artists of this period captured the nostalgia of simple, innocent times and everyday life through accessible narrative. As such, their content was ideally suited for the imaginative tales published in periodicals of the time, including the Saturday Evening Post, Cosmopolitan, Ladies Home Journal, and Life, among others.  A large portion of the collection is comprised of original illustrations that were reproduced as covers of these magazines.  Impeccably curated, it features works by the best storytellers of the Golden Age, including works by the iconic Joseph Christian Leyendecker (Est. $100,000-150,000) and Maxfield Parrish (Est $8.000-12.000).

Additional iconic works from masters of American Illustration Art includes Bump Mobile, The Saturday Evening Post cover, June 22, 1940, by Albert W. Hampson (est. $30,000-$50,000) and Amateur Nite—Cowboy Bill’s Ramblers, The Saturday Evening Post cover, January 11, 1936, by Monte Crews (est. $20,000-30,000).

The Nov. 3 auction will also feature a spectacular oil by George Henry Durrie titled Winter in the Country, A Cold Morning (est. $300,000-$500,000). Painted circa 1863, this masterwork romanticizes the seasonal pleasures of bucolic life with great composition and attention to detail, prompting one notable Durrie scholar to proclaim the work “one of his best contributions to native winter landscape painting in the nineteenth century.”

Offered for the first time in nearly 30 years, William Merritt Chase’s Untitled (Nude Resting in a Chair), circa 1888. Chase executed the pastel as a classroom demonstration while teaching at the Art Students League in New York. The swivel chair upon which the model sits can be seen in a photograph of Chase, standing in his famous Tenth Street Studio in New York that was reproduced in a 1947 article about the famed studio building in The Villager.

Interior (est. $80,000-$120,000) by Louis Ritman is emblematic of the artist’s unique brand of American Impressionism, painted while the artist lived and worked in Giverny, France.  Interior has descended in the same family for more than 100 years and was last seen publically in 1912 at the Cincinnati Museum’s “19th Annual Exhibition of American Art.

Other highlights of the auction include:

Call for Artists – Peavy Landmark Tree Rebirth Competition – Friends of the Bath House Cultural Center

The Friends of the Bath House Cultural Center are sponsoring the Peavy Landmark Tree Rebirth Competition, an art exhibition and live auction that will take place during the annual Bath House Cultural Center Art MartNovember 17-19, 2017.

This project is in response to a recent incident where a landmark Dallas Park and Recreation pecan tree was vandalized. Twelve sections of the tree limbs (about 12” by 18” in size) were rescued. To celebrate the rebirth of the tree, the Friends of the Bath House would like to do a request for qualifications to select artists to reanimate each log into works of art.

The artwork will be on display during the Art Mart. The auction will take place on Sunday, November 19, 2017. Proceeds from the auction benefit the Friends of the Bath House Cultural Center, a not for profit organization that supports the center’s visual and performing art programs throughout the year.

Applications are due on Monday, September 18, 2017, by midnight.

To download an application and to get more details about this project, including information regarding prizes, deadlines, photographs of the landmark tree, and submission requirements, visit the website of the Friends of the Bath House Cultural Center at https://www.friendsofthebathhouse.org/competitions/

Newly Discovered Norman Rockwell Masterpiece Brings $1.6 million at Heritage Auctions

Austin, Texas, family learns ‘framed print’ is actually original painted study

Dallas, Texas (Aug. 20, 2017) — “Tough Call,” a classic original masterpiece by Norman Rockwell  — discovered hanging in Austin, Texas, and considered nothing more than a cheap print  —  has sold for a staggering $1.6 million at a public auction of high-end sports memorabilia held by Heritage Auctions in Dallas. The 16-inch by 15-inch painting was expected to sell for $300,000 but instead realized more than five times pre-auction estimates, once again breaking the record for any Rockwell study.

The buyer remains anonymous at this time.

 

“It is remarkable to still discover such an important Norman Rockwell original artwork after so many years,” said Chris Ivy, director of Sports Memorabilia at Heritage Auctions. “The art community and sports fans all over the world owe thanks to Beans Reardon’s family for preserving this piece of Americana for future generations despite not quite understanding what they had.”

 

The original painting for “Tough Call” was published as a 1949 Saturday Evening Post cover and became an instant classic of American illustration art. Rockwell’s study for the piece (a preliminary work that guided the master’s hand) was gifted to umpire Beans Reardon.

 

Auction house experts realized the work, signed by Rockwell, was much more than a simple print of the famous work. Close inspection showed it was an original oil on paper study for one of Rockwell’s most famous paintings.

 

“The Rockwell discovery is a wonderful story and the auction price exceeded all expectations,” added Chris Ivy, director of Sports Auctions at Heritage.

 

This is the second Rockwell study sold in Dallas recently, as Heritage Rockwell’s study for “Triple Self Portrait”  commanded over $1.3 million just months ago by Heritage Auctions, itself more than tripling any previous record for a Rockwell study.

 

Heritage Auctions is the largest fine art and collectibles auction house founded in the United States, and the world’s largest collectibles auctioneer. Heritage maintains offices in New York, Dallas, Beverly Hills, San Francisco, Chicago, Palm Beach, Paris, Geneva, Amsterdam and Hong Kong.

The Internet’s most popular auction-house website, HA.com, has over one million registered bidder-members, and searchable free archives of four million past auction records with prices realized, descriptions and enlargeable photos.

Belle Époque masters headline Heritage Auctions’ Fine European Art Auction Dec. 7

belleepoque

Works by notable French artists among coveted pictures in upcoming sale

DALLAS — The vitality and excitement of Belle Époque France, with its emphasis on elegance and fashion, modernity, urbanization, consumerism, color and creativity, is expressed in a host of masterworks by a fine array of blue-chip artists represented in Heritage Auctions’ Fine European Art Auction Dec. 7 in Dallas.

“Whether it’s the urban landscape with its dramatic boulevards, sophisticated portraits or depictions of daily life in Paris, Heritage Auctions’ Fine European Art auction has something for every collector,” said Ariana Hartsock, Consignment Director for European Art at Heritage Auctions. “The energy of this lively time in the ‘City of Light’ between the Franco-Prussian War and the beginning of World War I can be seen in the auction’s top lots by Louis Marie de Schryver, Jean Béraud, Paul Helleu and Edgar Degas.”

De Schryver’s tour de force (est. $200,000-$300,000) is an astonishingly naturalistic scene of women purchasing a blaze of floral bouquets from a vendor outside the recently renovated Gare Saint-Lazare, the largest and busiest railway station in France. Here, modern life is beautiful and genteel, but also fast-moving. Jean Béraud’s luminous view down the Champs-Elysées is full of spirited brushwork emphasizing the brisk pace of city life, its clattering carriages, and bustling pedestrians (est. $250,000-$350,000).

According to Dr. Marianne Berardi, Senior Fine Art Expert for Heritage Auctions, “Béraud achieved a cinematic quality in this and his other major scenes of the Parisian capital by painting from a custom-made carriage which served as a mobile painting studio. He was thus able to drive straight into the action, and record what was going on all around him.”

Portraits by Paul Helleu and Edgar Degas are fine examples of an Impressionistic approach to modern subjects from the period. Helleu’s Madame Helleu aboard the yacht ‘Bird’ (est. $200,000-300,000) portrays his wife Alice, lounging gracefully on the deck of her husband’s yacht, protected from the sun by her parasol. As Heritage Auctions’ European Art specialist Janell Snape notes, “Helleu’s financial success as a painter enabled him to indulge in a luxurious lifestyle which included yachting. In the present work, the cool palette and the quick, loose brushstrokes create a sense of a quick breeze filling the yacht’s sails.” The auction includes a historically-important pastel portrait by Degas from 1904 of the artist’s friends, Monsieur and Madame Louis Rouart (est. $100,000-$150,000). It is one of the last portraits Degas ever created, and explores the tension in the Rouarts’ relationship as well as a new portrait formula for a married couple.

The French academic tradition was a mainstay of the Belle Époque, and is also highlighted in the auction with two works by William Adolphe Bouguereau: Bohemienne au tambor de Basque (est. $300,000-$500,000) and the charming La frileuse (est. $100,000-150,000), as well as an exquisite life-size painting of a beautiful young woman in classical garb seated in a garden by Charles Amable Lenoir (est. $300,000-$500,000).

Other highlights include but are not limited to:

· Laveuses au bord de la Touques, 1894, by Eugène Louis Boudin (est. $80,000-$120,000)
· L’entrée du village by Maurice de Vlaminck (est. $50,000-$70,000)
· Cupid and Venus by Guillaume Seignac (est. $50,000-$70,000)
· Portrait d’Alfred Isaacson, circa 1883, by Camille Pissarro (est. $40,000-$60,000)
· Le Lavoir (Vue et ruines du Château de Scey-en-Varais), circa 1872, by Gustave Courbet (est. $40,000-$60,000)

Heritage Auctions is the largest auction house founded in the United States and the world’s third largest, with annual sales of more than $800 million, and over one million online bidder members. For more information about Heritage Auctions, and to join and receive access to a complete record of prices realized, with full-color, enlargeable photos of each lot, please visit HA.com.

Attention Grabbing Results

Dallas Auction Gallery’s Fine Art Auction yields success across multiple categories

DALLAS (October 6th, 2016) – Achieving a sell through rate of 96%, Dallas Auction Gallery’s Fine Art Auction achieved strong results from top American artists. The sale, which featured the collection of Dallas’s Sam Wyly, achieved $5.9 million in sales and was led by Thomas Hart Benton’s “Roasting Ears” (est. $700,000-$900,000) which sold on the phone for $1,877,000. “We were not surprised by the amount of interest or the result as this is a wonderful example of how Benton was at the forefront of the American realist modern art movement. The two Benton works on paper also had strong demand and sold for $200,000 including premium.” said Scott Shuford, President of Dallas Auction Gallery.

David Martin’s “Portrait of Benjamin Franklin”, (est. $250,000-$450,000), is one of three portraits of Benjamin Franklin by the artist. The other two reside in the collections of the White House and the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts. The painting sold for $785,000.00 to a private buyer on the telephone.

picassosaleOther historic paintings from the sale included, Charles Bird King’s 1825 portrait “Timpooche Barnard, a Yuchi Warrior” (est. $60,000-$80,000) selling on the auction floor for $665,000.00. The sale also featured works by N.C Wyeth which attracted collectors and galleries alike. Spirited bidding on the floor and phones produced strong results for “Stirling Castle” (est. $100,000-$150,000.000)which sold for $485,000.00 and “Black Arrow Endpapers” (est. $60,000-$80,000) which sold for $365,000.00. “Autumn Woods”, by Maxfield Parrish was another great example of the passion Mr. Wyly had for American Art, selling for $425,000.00 against a presale estimate of $200,000-$300,000.00.

Three unique Picasso ceramic pieces were highly sought after and achieved premium prices selling for a total of $261,500. Françoise Gilot’s “Le Citron et les Poissons (Lemon and Fish)” oil on canvas ended the sale on a high note, selling for $137,000.00 against an estimate of $25,000-$35,000.00.

“We were honored to offer important artwork from the collection of Sam Wyly in our October 5th Fine Art Auction. It was more than just a collection of Sam Wyly; it personified Sam Wyly as the man. Numerous significant works of art with outstanding provenance and fresh to the market appeal well exceeded their estimates. American Art led the prices realized with phenomenal results across the board. It was an exciting evening marked by competitive bidding.”

co|action
 
December 5th – December 20th
Opening Reception – December 5th, 7-10 pm
 
500X will host 10 artists in an exhibition showcasing work between mentor/artist pairs. At some point in an emerging artist’s early career, someone comes alongside him or her to give critique, counsel, support, more critique, advice, training, and even to write letters of recommendation for employment or grant opportunities. The mentor-mentee or educator-student relationship is integral to the growth of the artist and mentor, as well as the art community.
For this exhibition, 500X extended 5 invitations to artists/educators/mentors in the DFW area and asked them to choose a student or mentee with whom to exhibit. The educator-student pair will either collaborate on a new work or display individual pieces side-by-side to visually convey the working relationship or influence.

Heyd Fontenot is director of CentralTrak, UTDallas’ international artists’ residency program and exhibition space located in the Expo Park neighborhood.  Previous to being in at CentralTrak, Fontenot lived in Austin and worked as a theater designer, art director,  filmmaker and artist.
In Fontenot’s current studio practice, he concentrates primarily on figurative painting and drawing.  The artist recruits his friends and artistic peers to model and has in this process created a comprehensive portrait of his community over the last two decades.   He exhibits his work and is represented by Conduit Gallery in Dallas and by Inman Gallery in Houston.
Shawn Mayer completed his MFA in Arts and Technology at the University of Texas at Dallas in spring 2014 and holds a BA in Music and a BFA in Drawing from the University of Missouri (2008). He has worked in animation, production and post-production for television and commercial programming. His work aims to bridge the gap between physical, traditional and technological media, combining them with immersive and interactive elements to create new and unconventional art. His areas of focus include online media, emergent play and folk practices displayed in gallery spaces to create unexpected experiences. Shawn was accepted as a resident at CentralTrak: the UT Dallas artists’ residency in 2013. His work has been shown at the Lawndale Art Center, the Houston Art League, CentralTrak, RO2 Art, 5oox Gallery, and Deep Ellum Windows. His work is currently being represented by the Liliana Bloch Gallery in Dallas, Texas.
 
Zac Travis is a visual artist with a concentration in photography. His work contradicts traditional roles of image-making and focuses on examining the culture of today: a culture thoroughly influenced by digital technologies, virtual experiences, and the digital self. Zac earned his BFA in Studio Art from the University of North Texas in Denton, TX, and is currently living and working in North Dallas.
Paho Mann‘s work has been included in exhibitions at the Arizona State University Art Museum (Tempe, AZ), Tucson Museum of Art (Tucson, AZ), Walker Art Center (Minneapolis, MN) and the Carnegie Museum of Art (Pittsburgh, PA) among others. Mann’s work is included in the collections of the Tucson Museum of Art, the Museum at Texas Tech University, the Nerman Museum of Contemporary Art, and the City of Phoenix Public Art Program.
Mann was born in 1978 on his parents homestead near Snowflake, Arizona. In 1992 he moved with his family to Albuquerque, New Mexico where in 2001 he received a BFA from the University of New Mexico. He received his MFA from Arizona State University in 2007. Currently, Mann lives and works in Dallas, Texas where he is an Associate Professor of Photography at the University of North Texas.
Tanya Synar received her MFA from the University of Washington-Seattle and her BFA from Colorado State University and currently teaches Sculpture at Texas Woman’s University. She has exhibited nationally and internationally and won numerous awards including an Illinois Arts Council Grant, Puffin Foundation Grant and several TWU research and development awards and garnered support from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration for The Deception Pass Project.  She creates by casting metal, searching scientific data, experimenting with color shifting paint, machining plastic and capturing moving images and sound. Currently in progress, Mapping Galaxy’s in Iron involves 3D imaging photographic data taken from the Hubble Space Telescope.
Julie McKendrick received her MFA in New Media Art from the University of North Texas and her BFA in Sculpture at Texas Woman’s University. With the adoption of sound, performance, moving images and installation art, her work is realized through experimental processes and challenges the viewers to decontextualize identity and gender within social constructs. McKendrick’s work has received critical acclaim internationally via the award winning music group, Vulgar Fashion. In 2013 she was invited along with a small group of international artists to participate in a residency located in Iceland. Currently, Julie co-directs Voertman’s gallery in Denton Texas and teaches animation at Richland College in Dallas.
Christopher Blay is a North Texas artist with a B.F.A. in photography from Texas Christian University. He works primarily as an installation artist, with an eye towards institutional critique. His work incorporates video, sculpture and performance, notably as Frank Artsmarter. Blay’s current work, “Kara Walker,Texas Ranger”, is a response to historical violence against African Americans, by law enforcement officers. Other recent projects include Satellites, at Centraltrak, the UT Dallas residency gallery and two ongoing public art projects in Dallas and Fort Worth. In 2013, Blay received the SMU Meadows museum’s Moss/Chumley award, given to artists whose works intersect with both the arts and their community. Blay is currently curator of Tarrant County
College’s Art Corridor Gallery.
James Talambas is a composer, producer, dj, and installation artist. He owns and operates New Media Recordings, a production company and creative venue on the south side of Fort Worth. Talambas does original scores and sound design for a number of films, and has recorded, produced, programmed, and arranged for a variety of local, national and international artists in a myriad of genres. Talambas consistently employs technology, improvisation and space into the pieces he composes, creating site specific, and musician specific electro-acoustic works. His most recent sound installations were featured in the exhibition Cultural Affairs, in Fort Worth.
He currently also plays piano and trumpet in the band, The Theater Fire.
