Chinese Export Porcelain from the Estate of Peter L. Rosenberg: Peter Rosenberg, who owned and operated Vallin Galleries of Wilton, Connecticut, was a highly respected dealer of Chinese and Japanese decorative arts, and of Chinese export porcelain. Peter was raised in the antiques business from the moment in 1940 that his mother Josephine opened a shop on 10th Street in Greenwich Village selling Chinese porcelain lamps. It was a world he took to effortlessly and successfully, and until his death last year, 73 years after its humble beginnings, Vallin Galleries was known as a leading gallery and Peter as an authority in the market.

Note: Major John Pitcairn, A Scottish-born officer in the British Marines, was sent to Boston in late 1774 with 600 marines under his command to help quell the unrest which had been brewing in the colonies. Taxation by the British Parliament, and events such as the “Boston Massacre” in March of 1770, had helped fuel the colonists’ fire. Although unsympathetic to the Provincial cause, Pitcairn endeared himself to the people he dealt with during the conflict by organizing civic improvements, and by showing fairness, consideration, and courtesy in settling disputes between the civilians and the military. He even won the respect of rebel colonist Paul Revere and his neighbor, an anti-British tailor named Samuel Shaw, at whose North End home Pitcairn was billeted at when martial law was imposed in Boston. It is reported that Pitcairn hosted social events at Shaw’s house in which he invited British officers and opposing locals, including Revere, to meet and exchange their views in a civilized manner. It is likely that during this time of close proximity that Revere, with his engraver’s eye for detail, may have executed this small and possibly unique portrait of Pitcairn on horseback. On the night of April 18th, 1775, Pitcairn volunteered to join British forces under Lt. Col. Smith on the expedition to Concord, a small town about 18 miles from Boston. For some time, colonists had been accumulating supplies in Concord to form an army, and the illegal Provincial Congress had also been meeting in the town. Pitcairn was made second-in-command, and placed at the head of the column. At dawn, Pitcairn reached the center of Lexington, where armed men had formed. The soldiers at the front of the column marched onto the green, and Pitcairn ordered the Lexington men to disperse. A shot rang out, and the men fired, killing eight and wounding another ten. Pitcairn’s horse was wounded two times during the exchange of fire. The scenario wasn’t much better in Concord, with most of the supplies being removed from the town prior to the arrival of the British. More blood was shed at the North Bridge by an attack of the Provincials, and as the British where marching back to Boston, they were attacked from all sides, barely making it back to the safety of Boston at nightfall. Provenance: According to typed inscriptions applied to the back of the frame the painting came from the estate of Duncan Phyfe, grandson of the late cabinet maker and from whom he inherited the painting. On June 17th, 1775, two months after the ill-fated expedition to Concord, British troops where again formed, this time to attack the Provincial army which had dug fortifications on the slope of Breed’s Hill in Charlestown. Three bloody assaults were made, and on the last Pitcairn fell, mortally wounded. Major John Pitcairn died at the age of 52 and is buried in the crypt of Christ Church (the “Old North Church”) in Boston. $20,000-30,000

Oil on panel, 25 x 20 in., unframed. Condition: Panels bowed, age crack at center on Rhoda’s portrait, scattered abrasions and retouch. Note: These portraits are probably related to a portrait sold at Skinner on August 12, 2001, Sale 2092, Lot 173, depicting Rollin Richmond (the brother of Rhoda, the woman portrayed here) of Barnard, Vermont, and which was dated February 1831 on the reverse. At the time it was sold, the portrait was attributed to Asahel Lynde Powers, an itinerant Vermont folk portrait painter, however, it was thought by the purchaser of the portrait to be the work of folk painter Amanda Powers, a relative of Asahel, and possibly his sister. These portraits were painted in 1830, two years before the sitters were married. According to William M. Newton, History of Barnard, Vermont, with family genealogies, Vol. II (Burlington: Burlington Vermont Historical Society, 1928), Captain Daniel Aikens was born on September 24, 1802, in Barnard, Vermont, the fourth child of Elijah and Rebecca (Tupper) Aikens, Elijah was a farmer who kept a country inn. Daniel married Mary Vanlora (1804-1832), and after her death, he married Rhoda Briggs Richmond, the daughter of Maj. Lemuel and Joanna (Briggs) Richmond, who was born November 8, 1814, in Barnard, and died December 19, 1876. Daniel owned the saw and grist mill in Barnard village. He was a captain in the militia, was town clerk from 1845 to 1848, and attended the Vermont constitutional convention in 1850. In the 1850 census Daniel was listed as a farmer living in Barnard with his wife Rhoda and four children, and as a carpenter in the 1860 census. He died on August 25, 1882, in Boston. $8,000-12,000

His early British landscapes and those by his wife Mary, also an artist, were featured at the Royal Academy of London from 1780-1793. In 1795, the couple migrated to the United States, hoping the sale of their paintings would be more profitable. The Becks first lived in Baltimore, where George painted scenes of the Potomac River, including two works, The Potomac River Breaking through the Blue Ridge and The Great Falls of the Potomac (c. 1796-1797)
188

which were purchased by George Washington in 1797 to hang at Mount Vernon. The couple moved to Philadelphia for a short time before they traveled from Philadelphia in 1804 to Pittsburgh, Niagara Falls, and Ohio, finally settling in Lexington, Kentucky in 1809. Mary opened a girl’s school there and George established a boy’s school, but devoted most of his time to painting, writing poetry, and translating classic Greek and Roman texts. The Becks remained in Lexington until George’s death in 1812. $3,000-5,000
