PHILLIP RUSSELL GOODWIN (American, 1882-1935) HUNTERS IN A CABIN USED FOR PETERS 1921 CALENDAR. This wonderful signed oil on canvas by Philip R. Goodwin was originally commissioned in 1920 by Peters Cartridge Co of Cincinnati, OH, one of the largest ammo manufacturers of the period. It is the subject of a famous 1921 Peters Cartridge Co. Calendar. The image is of four men in their period hunting gear, two with double guns, eagerly preparing for a cold weather hunt inside a cozy wooden shack. Image includes a wooden crate of PETERS shotshells, clearly marked, and shows several PETERS 2-piece shotshell boxes. Goodwin’s signature appears in the lower left corner of the image. The Peters Co. was sold to Remington Arms in 1934 as was the original painting. Sometime prior to 1970, it is not known exactly when, Remington sold the painting privately. Once again in 1983, the image would become calendar art as the original was loaned back to Remington Arms’ Richard Baldwin for the production of a retro-look calendar having many of the same attributes as the 1921 Peters version. This painting is illustrated in Larry Len Peterson’s book, “Phillip R. Goodwin: America’s Sporting & Wildlife Artist” on p.239. Philip R. Goodwin (1882-1935)is known for his illustrations of hunting, fishing, and cowboy scenes, especially scenes featuring firearms. By the age of eleven, he had already sold his first illustrations to Collier’s magazine. He was educated at the Rhode Island School of Design in Providence and the Art Students’ League in New York. He also studied with Howard Pyle in Pennsylvania. His works exhibit much of Pyle’s earnestness and discipline. Goodwin produced many notable pictures, the subject matter always being very convincing and dramatic in color. In his early twenties, he established a studio in New York and met Charles Russell, whose paintings provided a great influence on Goodwin’s work. This is seen not only in Goodwin’s use of bright, vivid colors, but also in the romanticized subject matter. Goodwin’s pictures were published in The Saturday Evening Post, Harper’s Monthly and Weekly, Outing, Scribner’s, and Everybody’s magazines, in addition to calendar subjects for Brown & Bigelow, advertising for Winchester including their famous Horse/Rider logo, Marlin, and Remington/Peters Company. He also illustrated African Game Trails for Theodore Roosevelt and Jack London’s Call of the Wild. This is a unique and rare opportunity to own a sporting classic that has never been offered for sale to the public. NOTE: Accompanying this painting is a copy of the Peter’s Cartridge Co. calendar of 1921 in very good condition. SIZE: 40″ x 30″. CONDITION: Several old patches to reverse with corresponding inpainting, craquelure, very good. 4-42712 (50,000-75,000)

Additional Information: In November 1961 an article in The Magazine Antiques, on page 410, states that when first re-discovered, the prestigious Kennedy Art Galleries of NYC identified this as a “Work by Thomas Birch 1779-1851, who is as noted for his paintings of Naval battles of the War of 1812 as for his winter and marine scenes. This view of the engagement between the Constitution and the Guerriere was engraved (in reverse) in aquatint about 1820 and published by F. Kearney during his brief period in business alone.”

Based on this esteemed art galleries original assessment we have represented this as by Thomas Birch in our catalog. We recently have talked with a couple of individuals who disputed Kennedy Galleries assessment and we therefore will change our representation to read that this painting is “Attributed to Thomas Birch”. Thank you for your interest and if you have any questions we would be happy to elaborate.

THOMAS BIRCH (American, 1779-1881) ENGAGEMENT BETWEEN THE CONSTITUTION AND THE GUERRIÉRE. Oil on wood panel scene depicts one of the most famous US Naval engagements of all time, that of the USS Constitution versus the Guerriére in which the USS Constitution prevailed during the War of 1812. This exact painting, sometime in 1820, was used to prepare an engraving for purposes of aquatints. The prints were published by F. Kearney during his brief period of business alone. According to an article in Antiques Magazine, November, 1961 on page 410, only four prints were known to exist and up until 1961, the painting had been lost from view and had just been rediscovered and was, at that time, displayed at Kennedy Galleries, 13 East 58th Street, New York, 22. This painting has been included in the Smithsonian Institute’s painting and sculptural database. Birch, who was born in England, became the earliest marine painter specialist in America. He was also noted for his landscapes. Birch immigrated to the United States with his father in 1794 and there they took up residence in Philadelphia where they conducted business for many years. Some of his best known paintings include the battle between the United States and the Macedonia as well as this painting and the Constitution. It is recorded that usually his paintings were created for one of the commanders of the ship(s) and is depicted in his painting. Unsigned. The reverse carries the original Kennedy Galleries label from the 1960s period. Framed in a contemporary antique-style gilt frame. SIZE: 23-1/2″ x 36″. CONDITION: Very good with very, very minor spot inpainting. 4-44164 (150,000-200,000)
