19th century Bradley & Rulofson, Photography, San Francisco cabinet card featuring an image of this piece.

Notes:

  Senator John P. Jones married Georgiana F. Sullivan in San Francisco January 1, 1875. The bride received many extravagant gifts including this ivory "Ariadne" statue (which was the gift of Mr. Col. Simpson). This was reported in the San Francisco Chronicle January 5, 1875. The piece was personal to the couple as the bears were a symbol of California, the quartz specimens were from all the mines Senator Jones was interested in as well as all the mining accoutrements (these were also a symbol of California's pioneers and the bride's father was a "Forty Niner". The engraved "Crown Point" refers to Jones' Crown Point Gold and Silver Mining Company in Nevada's Comstock Lode. In the middle was the bride's monogram. The grape vines are a tribute to the bride's family's connection to the settling of the Napa Valley. The subject matter of the statue referenced Georgiana's interest in European art and literature. 

  Koehler & Ritter were San Francisco silversmiths and retailers. Gotthard Koehler (1823-1894) and Charles Ritter (1840-) were German immigrants who began their career under Friedrich R. Reichel. They were known for their gold quartz and custom work.

  Crown Point Mine was one of the richest mines of the Comstock Lode. 

  Joseph Klein (1899-1987) was a collector in the 18th century connoisseur style. He was an immigrant from Poland who started a luxury leather goods store in New York City. It was very successful and Klein enjoyed frequenting the auction houses and antique stores to surround himself with a diverse array of luxury items.

Jacques Henri Lartigue (1894-1986) Photograph "Bibi In Marseille"

Unframed matted Jacques Henri Lartigue (1894-1986) photograph, "Bibi In Marseille". Signed lower right. Affixed to backing of lower mat board. Stamped verso, "La Photo Galerie / 2, Rue Christine, Paris. Titled in pencil below stamp. Also handwritten verso, "H.L. 1932.MISC0014.1 / Roy DeForest Estate." Dimensions: (sheet) 12 x 15.62; (image) 9.5 x 14.12". Processing and shipping within the continental U.S. $50.00 plus 1.5% replacement cost insurance.

Jacques-Henri Lartigue was a French photographer and painter noted for the spontaneous, joyful photographs he took beginning in his boyhood and continuing throughout his life. Lartigue’s boyhood photographs were almost always candid images taken of his family and friends.. Lartigue studied painting at the Académie Julian in Paris from 1915 to 1916 and would always consider himself a painter first and foremost. It was nevertheless as a photographer that he would establish his reputation. In the 1910s and 1920s Lartigue enthusiastically photographed such subjects as automobile races, fashionable ladies at the seashore and the park, and kite flying. These photographs, with their informal approach to everyday subjects, reveal his free spirit and love of life, rather than a concern for photographic technique and craft, and often capture a sense of movement. He generally worked in black and white, but during this period he also experimented with the recently developed Autochrome color process, which satisfied his painterly interests. In the 1930s and ’40s he continued to capture images of middle-class leisure that, like his earlier images, display a charm and joy that is detached from the traumas of world war.

 Lartigue was discovered in the early 1960s and shown at a Museum of Modern Art exhibit in New York City in 1963. His photographs were acclaimed in part because of their departure from the formal, posed portraits that had been typical of early photography and also because of their ingenuous charm.

Gregory Kondos (1923-2021) Painting, "Fishing Hut"

Framed Gregory Kondos (1923-2021) oil on oil board painting, "Fishing Hut Mistique West Indies". Signed and dated (1991) lower right. Signed, titled and dated verso. Dimensions: (sight) 6.12"h x 3.75"w; (overall) 16.62"h x 12"w. Processing and shipping within the continental U.S. $50.00 plus 1.5% replacement cost insurance.

Gregory Kondos spent decades depicting California’s unique, majestic beauty, from its rolling farmland to its varied coastline, to the forests and peaks of Yosemite, where he often served as artist-in-residence. He was drawn to the deserts around Santa Fe, and to Europe, especially Greece, the country from which his parents emigrated. He was celebrated as one of the world’s foremost landscape painters, known for his light-filled palette and intuitive, organic forms that seem like effortless extensions of nature.

Kondos described his paintings as possessing a sense of quietude and cleanliness while maintaining a necessary lonely quality: “Less is more…and what is left out makes the picture more understandable.” His distilled images tend to feature a solitary element—a lone boat, a mountain peak, a house standing away from the others—that projects a contemplative sense of being alone in thought. His simple yet lively palette and elegant lines, influenced by artists like Willem de Kooning, Cezanne, and Gauguin, allow us to place ourselves within the space of the painting. Chief curator and associate director at Sacramento’s Crocker Art Museum, Scott A. Shields, who organized “A Touch of Blue: Landscapes by Gregory Kondos” at the museum in 2013, remarks: “His paintings simultaneously celebrate the terrain's inherent formal, abstract properties, as well as the beautiful possibilities of the paint itself."

William T. Wiley (b. 1937) Color Lithograph, "Blind Mickey's Blues"

Framed William T. Wiley (b. 1937) color lithograph on paper, "Blind Mickey's Blues". Signed and dated ('97) lower right. Dimensions: (sheet) 36.5"h x 20"w; (overall) 41.12"h x 24.37"w. Processing and shipping within the continental U.S. $300.00 plus 1.5% replacement cost insurance. 

In Blind Mickey’s Blues Wiley adopts the urban myth of a cryogenically preserved Walt Disney as a metaphor for technology employed for selfish ends.  Wiley superimposed the humorous image of a blues-singing Mickey Mouse over a cryogenic tank inscribed with his song, all of which floats like a satellite above a map of the world, implying that the sometimes silly choices we make can indeed have global meaning.

Robert Arneson (1930-1992) Lithograph, "Pic"

Framed Robert Arneson (1930-1992) lithograph,"Pic". Signed and dated (1980) lower center, numbered 26/35 lower left. Dimensions: (sheet) 39.75"h x 29.75"w; (overall) 47.5"h x 37.25"w. For shipping quote, please contact Box Brothers Sacramento at boxbrosacto@gmail.com. 

Notes:

  Born in Benicia, California, Robert Arneson almost singlehandedly transformed ceramics into a major contemporary medium.  In the early 1960s, he became a member of the Funk Art movement, a California style of Pop-Art focusing on absurd images of everyday objects.  In the 1970s, he began using humorous portraits as subjects both in ceramics as well as paintings and lithographs. He gave his pieces ironic titles and incorporated graffiti, giving him an opportunity to play whimsical games with the work.  In the 1970s, he began using humorous portraits as subject matter, sculpting his friends, heroes, and himself--all with ironic comments on the human condition.  His works also became increasingly larger, making them a combination of sculpture and ceramics, and with his introduction of colored glazes, he was part of a generation that integrated painting and sculpture. He taught at University of California - Davis.

Rufino Tamayo (1899-1991) Colored Mixograph, "Figura en Verde"

Framed Rufino Tamayo (1899-1991) colored mixograph, "Figura en Verde". Signed in pencil lower right, artist's proof numbered lower left (P de A X/X). Dimensions: 17.5"h x 12"w; (overall) 25.75"h x 20.25"w. Provenance: Southwest Gallery, Dallas - Private Collection. Processing and shipping within the continental U.S. $70.00 plus 1.5% replacement cost insurance.

Notes:

  Rufino Tamayo (1899-1991) is a modern master whose legacy is rooted in his contributions across a variety of media, including mural and easel painting, drawing, and the graphic arts. Produced between 1925 and 1991, his graphic work includes woodcuts, lithographs, etchings and Mixografia® prints — a new technique that was developed in the early 1970s to allow him to produce his prints in relief.

  The Mixografia® process begins in a similar way to that of traditional printmaking — the artist crafts a model from any variety of materials, from which a plate is cast and then covered in a layer of ink. At this point in the procedure, however, Mixografia® begins to differ.  Instead of pressing the plate against a sheet of paper, a paper pulp, made in-house out of cotton fibre, is applied over the print ink. Together the pulp and the plate are run under extremely high pressure, allowing the pulp to slide into each individual crevice of the plate and the ink to mix into the fibres of the pulp. The technique proved to be perfectly suited to what Tamayo wanted to achieve: the resulting print has a much richer colour as the ink becomes immersed in the fabric of the paper, while the surface is subtly nuanced and resembles a relief, unlike a typical two-dimensional print.

Kawase Hasui (Japanese, 1883-1957) Color Woodblock Print, "Zojo Temple"

Unframed Kawase Hasui (Japanese, 1883-1957) color woodblock print, "Zojo Temple", from "Twenty Views of Tokyo". Signed lower right, titles lower left with Watanabe publisher 6mm seal lower left. Dimensions: (sheet) 15.5"h x 10.25"w. Processing and shipping within the continental U.S. $50.00 plus 1.5% replacement cost insurance.

One of the most prolific of all shin hanga printmakers, Kawase Bunjirō was born into a merchant family and raised in the Shiba district of Tokyo. During a long illness he became interested in drawing and painting, and in 1897 he began to study with the painter Kawabata Gyokushō (1842–1913). However, he had to give up his education after only two years in order to take over his family’s business. Hasui was eventually able to resume his studies, this time with Kaburagi Kiyokata (1878–1972). It was not until 1910 that Kiyokata gave him his gō (artist’s name) “Hasui,” meaning “born of the reeds.”  While studying at Kiyokata’s academy, Hasui met and befriended a fellow artist, Itō Shinsui; after seeing Shinsui’s print series “Eight Views of Omi,” Hasui was inspired to create woodblock prints.

Hasui loved to travel and would often paint watercolors of Japan's most beautiful places. In 1918 he began a long collaboration with publisher Watanabe Shōzaburō, making prints from his original paintings. In the Great Kantō Earthquake of 1923, both Hasui's house and Watanabe’s studio were destroyed, along with most of Hasui’s work. Undaunted, Hausi soon set out on another journey, creating more designs for a print series that Watanabe published in 1924. Hasui continued to work for Watanabe until the artist’s death in 1957. Near the end of his career, in 1952, the Japanese government officially recognized Hasui for his contributions to the art of printmaking.

This is the smallest of the five banjo clock styles made by E. Howard.

The E. Howard & Company succeeded the Howard & Davis firm in 1857. The Howard and Davis firm was comprised of Edward Howard and David P. Davis and was established in 1842. Both men served their apprenticeship with Aaron Willard Jr of Boston. This firm was involved in watch and clock manufacturing since 1842. This firm also made high grade clocks, precision balances, sewing machines and fire engines. After the dissolution of Howard and Davis, Edward Howard went on to become Boston’s leading manufacture of weight driven clocks. This included residential clocks, commercial clocks and tower clocks. They also sold a large number of watchman and salve clock systems. These sold well in the late 1800’s.
