505 Cornelis De Heem (Flemish, 1631-1695) Autumn Still Life with Pomegranates, Chestnuts, Oranges, White and Red Grapes, Plums, Wheat, and Insects Signed “C. DE HEEM” l.r., inscribed “Wolfe...” on the reverse, identified on a label from Harvard University Art Museums, affixed to the backing. Oil on canvas, 25 1/2 x 21 1/2 in. (64.8 x 54.6 cm), within an ebonized frame. Condition: Lined, retouch, craquelure, subtle varnish inconsistencies. N.B. Cornelis de Heem apprenticed under his father, the sumptuous still life painter Jan Davidsz de Heem (Flemish, 1606-1684). He began his career in Antwerp, where he became a master of the painter’s guild in 1660, and later worked in Utrecht, IJsselstein, and The Hague. (1)

His still lifes are characterized by “daring colour harmonies, sometimes with a strong blue” as the ribbon in the present work illustrates. (2) Like his father, he devoted himself to floral, fruit, and opulent still lifes, capturing the most difficult and ephemeral details—the reflection on silver, dewdrops on fruit, and the subtle sheen of rich fabric. The present work celebrates the splendor of autumn in the rich variety of the harvest depicted, but true to a vanitas, such details as half-eaten fruit, woody vines, and powdery mildew also foreshadow the subtle passing of the season. The present work was on long-term loan to the Fogg Art Museum in Cambridge, Massachusetts, since 1995.

569 Fitz Henry Lane (American, 1804-1865) Camden Mts. from the Graves Signed and dated “FH Lane 1862” l.r., titled, signed, dedicated, and inscribed “...F.H. Lane to J.L. Stevens Jr./Gloucester 1862./A Souvenir of our excursion to Penobscot Bay, Septr. 1855.” on the reverse. Oil on canvas, 13 x 22 in. (33.0 x 55.9 cm), framed. Condition: Lined (with window to inscription), retouch, fine craquelure, minor abrasions along tacking edges. Provenance: The artist to Joseph L. Stevens Jr., Gloucester, Massachusetts; [...], Quester Gallery, Greenwich, Connecticut; private New Hampshire collection. N.B. Lane first visited Maine in 1848 when he was invited by his close friend from Gloucester, Joseph Lowe Stevens, Jr. (18231908), to visit his family’s home.1 A friendship blossomed between Lane and Dr. and Mrs. Joseph Lowe Stevens, Sr. In the 1850s Lane was invited several summers to stay at the “Old Homestead,” as the Stevens’ residence was known, in Castine. The home offered direct access to the Penobscot Bay, and Stevens, Jr., would row or sail Lane to various locations to make preparatory sketches for his oils. Lane continued to visit this region through 1863, where he “would paint many pictures of the vicinity as well as small oils of the family house and views done especially for presentation to the Stevens family.”2

By 1855, Lane had made three welldocumented cruising trips of the Penobscot Bay region—one in 1850, 1851, and 1852. Most of his sketches were made “while sailing leisurely, conditions permitting, or at anchor with a favorable prospect before him,” sometimes partway up the mast for an elevated view, while others were from the deck of a steamer either arriving or departing Rockland.3 Based on the dedication on the reverse, it can be surmised that the present work originates from sketches during the first leg of his trip in September 1855 around the southern shores of Penobscot Bay, and completed in his Gloucester studio in 1862. Lane’s 1855 excursion was his penultimate visit to Maine. Scholars have noted that the paintings completed in the years prior to his fourth and final visit in 1863, such as the present work, reflect his mature style and are distinguished by a sophisticated minimalist approach. John Wilmerding notes that “these later paintings especially tend to be more generalized in location and poignant in feeling, perhaps because they were more detached images made from memory” and Franklin Kelly notes “an increased refinement and elegance” whereby “gradually, he distilled the essentials from long-familiar subjects.”4 Kelly has speculated that this approach may have been partially motivated by nostalgia, as the lower Penobscot Bay shoreline was becoming less pristine and increasingly industrial in the 1860s. Lane’s reference to the present work as a “souvenir” of his 1855 excursion supports this interpretation of his later work being rooted more in memory and emotion than faithful documentation.

623 Conrad Wise Chapman (American, 18421910) Cavalry Camp of the So. Ca. Holcomb Legion, New Kent, Co. Va. Mar., 1863 Monogrammed, inscribed, and dated “CWC…186…” l.l., titled, dedicated, and signed “…for Revd. Dr. Lyman/by C.W.Chapman” in whiting on the reverse, also with the embossed stamp and label of Charles Robertson & Co., London, on the reverse. Oil on paperboard, 10 x 14 in. (25.4 x 35.6 cm), framed. Condition: Minor losses, abrasions, fine craquelure, very subtle bowing, minor surface grime. Provenance: Probably Reverend Thomas Benedict Lyman, fourth bishop of the Episcopal Diocese of North Carolina, then descended within the family; through to Joseph Valentino Toschi, JV Fine Arts Gallery, San Francisco, private Illinois collection, c. 1960s.

N.B. Chapman’s path to becoming an official artist of the Confederacy came full circle by way of Rome, Italy. Chapman was born in Virginia, but in 1850, his artist father, John Gadsby Chapman, moved his family to Rome to pursue the booming market for works to Americans on the Grand Tour. Subsequently, J.G. Chapman, who had trained professionally at the National Academy of Design, apprenticed both of his sons as painters in Rome. Despite having been raised abroad, Chapman retained a deep sense of loyalty to his Southern roots. At the outbreak of the Civil War, the nineteen-year-old Chapman enlisted with the Confederacy, and sold what works he could to pay for a return trip to America. Chapman saw battle in the years between 1861 and 1863, first in the Company D, 3rd Kentucky Infantry Regiment, where he fought in the Battle of Shiloh in Tennessee, and later in the 59th Virginia Infantry Regiment. He made the switch from soldier to artist in 1863, when he was recommended as a fine artist to the Department of South Carolina, Georgia and Florida and headed to Charleston to assist General P.G.T. Beauregard to document the city’s fortifications for the general’s memoir.

The present work, previously known only from an etching by J.G. Chapman, depicts a day of respite in the Confederate army encampment of the Holcombe Legion. The Legion, which saw battle in the defense of Charleston and elsewhere in South Carolina, was formed on November 13, 1861, and named for Lucy Petway Holcombe Pickens, the spirited wife of South Carolina Governor Francis W. Pickens. Though now indistinct, it can be surmised that the inscription and date lower left read “ROMA 1864,” which was the year that Chapman was given leave to return to Italy to attend to his ailing mother. The work is dedicated to a Dr. Lyman, believed to be Reverend Theodore Benedict Lyman, D.D. (1815-1893), the fourth Bishop of the Episcopal Diocese of North Carolina. Dr. Lyman traveled extensively in Europe and the Middle East in the 1860s, serving as chaplain at the American Embassy in Rome in 1865, and leading the St. Paul’s Episcopal Church in Rome from 1866 to 1879. $400,000-600,000

CRAIG” l.l., identified on a label from Combridge’s Fine Art Galleries, Dublin, Ireland, and with labels from the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, and John Magee, Belfast, Ireland, affixed to the stretchers. Oil on canvas, 18 x 24 in. (45.7 x 61.0 cm), framed (under glass). Condition: Minor craquelure. Provenance: Collection of Henry L. Shattuck, c. 1938; by descent in the family of the current owner; a North Shore, Massachusetts, estate.

The present work is one of several Irish paintings collected by notable businessman, civic leader, and philanthropist Henry Lee Shattuck (1879-1971). Among his works were Paul Henry’s The Bog at Evening, 1922–3, and Mountain Village, 1926–9, currently in the permanent collection of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, as well as Paul Henry’s A Bog Near Dingle, Co., Kerry, c. 1928-1930, sold at Skinner, Inc. Shattuck was a New Englander of part Irish descent, and supported Irish cultural exchange through his activities with the Charitable Irish Society of Boston.1 He was also a treasurer and senior fellow of the board of Harvard University from 1929 to 1952, a member of the Massachusetts House of Representatives from 1920 to 1930, and from 1943 to 1948, and a member of the Boston City Council from 1933 to 1938.2 Today, he is perhaps best remembered as both the namesake of a public service award that honors employees of the City of Boston, and for his 300-acre woodland bequest in Medfield to the Trustees of Reservations.

Oil on canvas, 20 x 16 in. (50.8 x 40.6 cm), framed. Condition: Good. Provenance: A private Massachusetts collection. N.B. Exhibition catalogs for John Sonsini, January 10 to February 10, 2007, Cheim & Reid, New York, published in an edition of 1000, and John Sonsini: New Paintings, March 8 to April 16, 2005, Anthony Grant, Inc., New York, accompany the lot. Sonsini is best known for his work depicting Latino day laborers in his neighborhood, the Pico-Union district in Los Angeles. In the present work, the portrait’s frontal and tightly cropped frame evokes a reference to an ID portrait, raising the politically charged issue of immigration and legal documentation. Through his tactile and visceral brushwork, however, Sonsini diffuses the overt politics of this series, focusing on the humanity of his sitters. According to Sonsini, “The information on cards in wallets is of little help to me. For me painting the portrait is about recreating the sensation of presence, the experience of having the sitter in my studio.”1

N.B. Shanghai-born Way was a student of the modern Chinese calligrapher Li Jian (Chinese, d. c. 1950). He immigrated to the United States in 1956 and settled in Boston, where he studied Architecture at Massachusetts Institute of Technology.1 The Abstract Expressionist ethos resonated with him throughout his career, and his oeuvre can be characterized as a synthesis of Chinese calligraphy (particularly cursive script) and gestural abstraction. Way was the only AsianAmerican artist to exhibit alongside

Jackson Pollock, Helen Frankenthaler, and Morris Louis, among others, in the 1965 show, Painting Without a Brush at the Institute of Contemporary Art, Boston. More recently, he was the subject of exhibitions at Shanghai Art Museum in 2001 and at the Honolulu Academy of Arts in 2006.

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. (a) Skinner Inc., may impose, and the purchaser agrees to pay, a monthly storage charge of 1.5% of the purchase price of any lot or portion of a lot not removed within the three days, and/or (b) Skinner Inc. may place the merchandise in a subsequent auction, without Reserve, to be sold to the highest bidder, and after deducting the standard commission and any additional charges that may apply, remit the proceeds to the purchaser. 5. Skinner accepts cash or check for payment. Personal checks will be acceptable only if credit has been established with Skinner, Inc. or if a bank authorization has been received guaranteeing a personal check. Skinner, Inc. reserves the right to hold merchandise purchased by personal check until the check has cleared the bank. The purchaser agrees to pay Skinner, Inc. a handling charge of $25.00 for any check dishonored by the drawee. Please contact Accounting for additional payment methods. Skinner does not accept payment by credit card for merchandise purchases. 6. If the purchaser breaches any of its obligations under these Conditions of Sale, including its obligation to pay in full the purchase price of all items for which it was the highest successful bidder, Skinner Inc. may exercise all of its rights and remedies under the law including, without limitation, (a) canceling the sale and applying any payments made by the purchaser to the damages caused by the purchaser’s breach, and/or (b) offering at public auction, without reserve, any lot or item for which the purchaser has breached any of its obligations, including its obligation to pay in full the purchase price, holding the purchaser liable for any deficiency plus all costs of sale. 7. In no event will the liability of Skinner, Inc. to any purchaser with respect to any item exceed the purchase price actually paid by such purchaser for such item. 8. Shipping is the responsibility of the purchaser. Upon request, our staff will provide the list of shippers who deliver to destinations within the United States and overseas. Some property that is sold at auction can be subject to laws governing export from the U.S., such as items that include material from some endangered species. 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. All purchases are subject to the Massachusetts 6.25% sales tax unless the purchaser possesses a Massachusetts sales tax exemption number. Exemption numbers from other states are accepted in Massachusetts if presented with a business card or letterhead. Dealers, museums, and other qualifying parties can apply for a Massachusetts exemption number prior to the auction by contacting the Massachusetts Department of Corporations and Taxation at 100 Cambridge Street in Boston. 10. Except for property purchased via On-line Auctions, a premium equal to 20% of the final bid price up to and including $500,000, plus 12% of the final bid over $500,000, will be applied to each lot sold, to be paid by the Buyer as part of the purchase price. The buyer’s premium on property purchased via On-line Auctions will be in an amount up to 23% of the final bid price. 11. Bidding on any item indicates your acceptance of these terms and all other terms printed within, posted, and announced at the time of sale whether bidding in person, through a representative, by phone, by Internet, or other absentee bid. 12. Skinner, Inc. and its consignors make no warranty or representation, express or implied, that the purchaser will acquire any copyright or reproduction rights to any lot sold. Skinner, Inc. expressly reserves the right to reproduce any image of the lots sold in this catalog. The copyright in all images, illustrations and written material produced by or for Skinner, Inc. relating to a lot, including the contents of this catalog, is, and shall remain at all times, the property of Skinner, Inc. and shall not be used by the purchaser, nor by anyone else, without our prior written consent. 13. These conditions of sale shall be governed by the laws of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts (excluding the laws applicable to conflicts or choice of law). The buyer/bidder agrees that any suit for the enforcement of this agreement may be brought, and any action against Skinner in connection with the transactions contemplated by this agreement shall be brought, in the courts of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts or any federal court sitting therein. The bidder/buyer consents to the nonexclusive jurisdiction of such courts and waives objections that it may now or hereafter have to the venue of any such suit.
