BERNARD LANGLAIS (American, 1923-1977) WISHY WASHY II.

Stained wood shadowbox sculpture Unsigned Bears Allan Stone Gallery label on verso Bernard Langlais was born in Old Town, Maine. While many of his audience may think first of his folk-like wooden figures of animals, Langlais’s early work was very abstract and urbane. As a member of Leo Castelli’s stable of avant garde artists, he exhibited in New York with artist/colleagues including Jasper Johns, Robert Rauschenberg and Louise Nevelson; Castelli in fact gave him a one person show in 1961. Langlais’s training included study at the Corcoran School of Art in Washington, the Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture and the Brooklyn Museum School, where he studied with German Expressionist painter Max Beckmann. He also studied in Paris at the Academie de la Grand Chaumiere in the early 1950’s and received a Fulbright Fellowship to study the work of Edvard Munch in Norway.

Please note: The two “Old Paris” vases are cataloged as depicting Lafayette. The un-uniformed example actually has his name beneath the image. One collector has indicated that he felt the uniformed version depicted someone else. I must admit though, to us in carefully looking at the vases, it seems they are both one and the same, Lafayette. The uniformed version shows the sitter looking directly at you; the non-uniformed version shows the sitter looking to the left. Please make your own decision before buying.

GROUPING OF MARQUIS DE LAFAYETTE MEMORABILIA FROM HIS 1825 VISIT TO AMERICA ON THE 50TH ANNIVERSARY OF THE REVOLUTION.

This material was for many years on display at the Atlanta Museum on Peachtree street until purchased by George Greene for his museum. This grouping consists of 2 Lafayette commemorative “Old Paris” porcelain vases with vignettes of Lafayette in uniform and as a civilian, a Leeds pearl-ware egg cup, a walking stick with crown stag top with an oval silver medallion reading “General Lafayette”. There are two 21mm gilded buttons with busts that appear to be George Washington with presentation cast on reverses which read “Presented to General Lafayette by L.H. & Scovill button manufacturers Waterbury Con.” These buttons are a 19th century re-strikes of the original solid gold buttons given to Lafayette. There is a mother-of-pearl ball tablet presented by Lafayette with a contemporary tag which states “Presented by M. de LaFayette to the daughter of his friend and compatriot of the revolution of 1775/77 Colonel Samuel Hammond who received and welcomed him to Augusta GA 1825.” There is also an embroidered cotton mesh table cover with later typed tag which reads “This cloth covered the refreshment table at a ball in Augusta, GE. in 1825 given by Col. Samuel Hammond to entertain Gen. Lafayette during his visit to America.” PROVENANCE: From the Greene Museum of Southern History. CONDITION: Paris-ware vases have heavy gold wear, chips to rims on each. Vase with civilian portrait has broken and repaired left handle, broken and missing right handle, additional chip in bottom where attached to base. Egg cup has minor chipping in lip. Ball tablet appears very good as sewn to cloth display, names are still discernible on each leaf. Buttons are fine retaining most of their original gilt. Cane is sound, solid, brass tip is loose and inset silver medallion is heavily tarnished. Table cover is poor with numerous tears and separations, soiling and staining. 9-28020 (2,000-4,000) – Lot 1404

MCKENNEY & HALL HISTORY OF THE INDIAN TRIBES OF NORTH AMERICA… COMPLETE 3 VOLUME OCTAVO EDITION.

This set is deluxe bound in full red Moroccan leather, raised ribbed spine with gold embossed decorations and gold edged pages. In 1844 the final volume of Thomas McKenney’s landmark History of the Indian Tribes of North America was published, completing a vast work whose genesis can be traced twenty-three years earlier to the winter of 1821. At that time, as Superintendent of Indian Affairs for the War Department, Thomas McKenney commissioned artist Charles Bird King (1785-1862) to paint the portraits of a delegation of Native American leaders in Washington, DC. The paintings captured the likeness of the leaders and provided a visual record of their tribes, many of which did not survive into the photographic era. The portraits, eventually over a hundred in number, lead to the establishment of the War Department’s Indian Gallery. They were later moved to the Smithsonian Institute. Thomas McKenney (1785-1859) was an early advocate for Native Americans and the survival of their cultures. Between 1816 and 1830 he held numerous government posts pertaining to Native American relations, eventually to be appointed the first head of the United States Bureau of Indian Affairs. Throughout his career McKenney acted on his concern that the world of the Native Americans would vanish without being documented. In 1835 he began work on the History of the Indian Tribes of North America the most extensive chronicle of the continents original inhabitants written to date. The ambitious work was to feature a series of hand colored lithographs in folio, based upon the paintings he had commissioned by Charles Bird King and to a lesser extent, works by P. Rhindesbacher, R. M. Sully and James Otto Lewis. Each portrait would be accompanied with a biography of the subject written by McKenney, many based on personal interviews granted to him by such notables as Sequoyah, Makataineshekiakiah (Black Hawk), Thayendanegea (or Brant), Osceola and Red Jacket. In addition to the biographies, a large essay on the history of Native Americans by James Hall (1793-1768) was included. It would take nine years and a huge financial outlay for the folio to be printed in its entirety. Volume I was completed in 1836 and published by the firm of Edward C. Biddle. Volume II followed in 1842 as well as a reissue of vol. I, published by Frederick W. Greenough, the successor firm of Edward C. Biddle. The firm of D. Rice and A. N. Clark, printed the final volume in 1844, as well as new issues of the first two volumes. The books’ large size and expense lead Rice and Clark to reissue the work changing its format to “royal” octavo in 1848 as this set. This edition also included material added by McKenney and one additional portrait, that of Red Bird (Zitkaduta) of the Winnebago tribe. The portrait illustrates an event that McKenney had direct involvement in, the surrender of Chief Red Bird after an attack on Praire du Chien in 1827. McKenney and Michigan Governor Lewis Cass negotiated the surrender, which prevented the outbreak of a larger war by promising not to place Red Bird and his party in irons. Red Bird is portrayed arriving at the surrender, having chanted his death song earlier. “I have given my life, it is gone…” (blowing some dust between his finger and thumb) “…like this. I would not have it back. It is gone.” Red Bird and his men were sentenced to hang for the attack but intercession by McKenney and Cass lead to their pardon by President Adams. Red Bird however, had died in prison before the pardon was granted. SIZE: 11″ h x 7-1/2″ l. PROVENANCE: From the Greene Museum of Southern History. CONDITION: Very good overall as can be seen in photos, volume 1 has archival repaired front hinge and spine edge. There are penciled drawings by a child on front end papers. Frontis print “Hunting the Buffalo” is chipped though not affecting image or text, frontis plate loose. Volumes all in all are complete and intact with soiling and minor staining and foxing.
