300. Willem Claesz Heda (Dutch, 1594-c. 1680) Still Life with Tazza, Peeled Lemon, and Roemer, 1630 Unsigned. Oil on cradled panel, 15 1/2 x 22 1/2 in. (39.4 x 57.2 cm), framed. Condition: Retouch including to repair two horizontal cracks to the panel, fine craquelure, surface grime. Literature: Bode, Wilhelm von, Die Sammlung Oscar Huldschinsky (Frankfurt a. Main: Joseph Baer & Co., 1909), cat. no. 12 (illus.). Provenance: J.M. Heberle, Cologne, Gemälde-Sammlung, May 19, 1890, Lot 45 (illus.); to the collection of Oscar Huldschinsky, Berlin; Paul Cassirer und Hugo Helbing, Berlin, Die Sammlung Oscar Huldschinsky, May 10, 1928, Lot 12; [...]; to the collection of Jack Partridge, Maine, c. 1950s; through to a private Maine collection. N.B. The still life at hand was reviewed via photographs by Dr. Fred Meijer, Curator, Department of Old Netherlandish Painting, Netherland Institute for Art History (RKD), who has determined the work to be by the hand of Willem Claesz Heda, painted in 1630. Dr. Meijer has provided the provenance up to the 1928 auction record. Haarlem painter Willem Claesz Heda is known for his keenly observed still life compositions rendered in delicate gray and silvery tones and set against grey-green backgrounds. Dr. Meijer noted that the material and handling of the work at hand are fully consistent with what we can expect of a Heda from 1630. The composition is very close to that of a dated still life by Heda from 1630 that was handled by H.M. Cramer in The Hague during the mid-1970s. A comparison of the two works would suggest that the current version may have been cropped by a few centimeters at the top and probably also a little to the left. $30,000-50,000

Provenance: Through a private Boston collection. N.B. The sculpture depicts Princess Ida, the central character of Alfred, Lord Tennyson’s 1847 poem, “The Princess: A Medley.” Ida believes that women are superior to men, and chooses to establish a women’s college over accepting a prince’s hand in marriage. Ida’s headstrong independence is no match for fate, however, and through a comedy of errors, Ida marries the prince that she was betrothed to at birth. While the poem’s ending was conventional for its time, it was still among the first to engage with the debate over equal rights for women in Britain, as championed by Mary Wollstonecraft in the late 18th century. Another example of this sculpture is in the permanent collection of the Smithsonian American Art Museum. $15,000-25,000

Oil on canvas, 20 x 28 in. (50.8 x 71.2 cm), framed. Condition: Lined, retouch. Literature: A Catalogue of Paintings, most of them by Stephen Parrish (1846-1938), as compiled by Maxfield Parrish, Jr., item 521, p. 9, (ill p. 10), a privately published inventory (September, 1976) in the collection of Dartmouth College, Rauner Special Collections Library. N.B. The landscape at hand is a late work by Stephen Parrish. It is described by his grandson, Maxfield Parrish, Jr., in the inventory referenced above as, “One of his best but needs repair…Possibly Beaver Brook Road and brook north of Plainfield, north on Rte. 12 A.” By the 1920s, Stephen Parrish had stopped sending paintings to exhibitions. He sold works from home, sometimes right off the easel, but would not release them to the new owners until the paint was dry. Maxfield Parrish, Jr., went on to write that he knew of no Stephen Parrish paintings dated after 1923. The frame on the work appears to be original; it matches the one in the photograph in the inventory and bears a pencil inscription “Ann Dunn” as noted in the inventory description. We would like to thank Sarah Hartwell, Rauner Special Collections Library, Dartmouth College, for her assistance with the Parrish family archives. $10,000-15,000

N.B. We wish to thank Isabelle de Lannoy for her kind assistance with cataloging the lot; the work will be included in Volume 3 of her Catalogue Raisonné Henner. Henner created two versions of Liseuse; the present work is a study for the 1886 version (see Catalogue Raisonné Henner, C. 840, Vol. 2, p. 69), which is now lost. The 1886 version was itself a variant of an 1883 version that is in the Musee d’Orsay permanent collection (see Catalogue Raisonné Henner, C. 740, Vol. 2, p. 36). De Lannoy also notes that the octagonal label on the reverse is consistent with Jules Henner’s inventory of his uncle’s studio contents, and below it is a half envelope (probably by Frederique Dujardin, his sister-in-law) from Bernwiller (Alsace region) to Jules Henner who lived in Paris at 41 rue La Bruyere. $800-1,200

614. Frederick Carl Frieseke (American, 1874-1939) Nude (Giverny), c. 1906 Signed “F.C. Frieseke-” l.l. Oil on canvas, 24 x 19 3/4 in. (61.0 x 50.0 cm), framed. Condition: Good. Provenance: Everett St. John Chaffee and Caroline Peck Chaffee, Providence and Matunuck, Rhode Island, then by descent to the present owners. N.B. Born in Michigan in 1874, American Impressionist Frederic Carl Frieseke was a key figure of “The Giverny Group,” a cadre of American artists working in France in the early 20th century. Frieseke began his studies at the Art Institute of Chicago and the Art Students League in New York. In 1897 the young artist was drawn to Paris to study at the Académie Julian and then briefly with James A.M. Whistler at the Académie Carmen. France became his permanent home. Frieseke set up his studio first in Paris and then in 1906, also in Giverny, where he would spend summers until 1920. Art historians have noted that Frieseke effectively synthesized Impressionist style and subject matter with the flattened space and decorative patterning of Post Impressionists, such as Vuillard and Bonnard. Frieseke realized success early painting the female figure and nudes. The painting at hand was done c. 1906 in Frieseke’s first years at Giverny. Influenced by Impressionism and the palettes of Renoir and Monet, Frieseke set his subject outdoors and filled his canvas with sun dappled blues and greens and rosy flesh tones. It is not clear exactly how and when the painting found its way to Rhode Island, but the connection to Matunuck is significant. Everett St. John Chaffee and Caroline Peck Chaffee summered at Matunuck and lived next door to Anna Richards Brewster. Caroline herself was an artist, and the community became a summer artists’ colony, modeled on Giverny, largely at the hand of neighbor and former Givernois, Philip Leslie Hale. It is not known if the Chaffees acquired the work directly from Frieseke or through the connections of one of their artist circle at Matunuck. The painting at hand will be included in The Frederick Carl Frieseke Catalogue Raisonné, being prepared by Nicholas Kilmer with the support of the Hollis Taggart Galleries. The painting will be dated “by 1908.” $60,000-80,000

Skinner, Inc. - Conditions of Sale
1. Some of the lots in this sale are offered subject to a reserve. The reserve is a confidential minimum price agreed upon by the consignor and Skinner, Inc. below which the lot will not be sold. In most cases, the reserve will be set below the estimated range, but in no case will it exceed the estimates listed. A representative of Skinner, Inc. will execute such reserves by bidding for the consignor. In any event and whether or not a lot is subject to a reserve, the auctioneer may reject any bid or raise not commensurate with the value of such lot. 2. All property is sold “as is,” and neither the auctioneer nor any consignor makes any warranties or representation of any kind or nature with respect to the property, and in no event shall they be responsible for the correctness, nor deemed to have made any representation or warranty, of description, genuineness, authorship, attribution, provenance, period, culture, source, origin, or condition of the property and no statement made at the sale, or in the bill of sale, or invoice or elsewhere shall be deemed such a warranty of representation or an assumption of liability. 3. Except as provided in paragraph 1 above, the highest bidder as determined by the auctioneer shall be the purchaser. In the case of a disputed bid, the auctioneer shall have sole discretion in determining the purchaser and may also, at his or her election, withdraw the lot or reoffer the lot for sale. The auctioneer shall have sole discretion to refuse any bid, or refuse to acknowledge any bidder. Any bidder that plans on spending in excess of $100,000 should make arrangements with the accounting department at least five (5) days in advance of the sale, as a deposit may be required to participate. 4. All merchandise purchased must be paid for and removed from the premises the day of the auction. Skinner Inc. may impose, and the purchaser agrees to pay, a monthly interest charge of 1.5% of the purchase price of any lot or item lot not paid for within thirty-five (35) days of the date of sale. Skinner, Inc. shall have no liability for any damage or loss to property left on its premises for more than three (3) days from the date of sale. If any property has not been removed within three (3) days from the date of sale, at the option of Skinner, Inc.

Import restrictions from foreign countries are subject to these same governing laws. Granting of licensing for import or export of goods from local authorities is the sole responsibility of the buyer. Denial or delay of licensing will not constitute cancellation or delay in payment for the total purchase price of these lots. 9.

Exemption numbers from other states are accepted in Massachusetts if presented with a business card or letterhead.
