5. John Bradley (British/American, d. after 1847), "Children on a Terrace", 1826, pencil and watercolor on paper, signed and dated lower left, inscribed en verso, 12 1/4 in. x 10 in., unframed. $1000/1500
Note: British-American artist John Bradley is believed to have arrived in the United States around 1830 or 1832. By the end of 1832, he was known to be working on Staten Island, and listings in New York City directories include him as a portrait and miniature painter from 1836 to 1847. Few paintings prior to the artist's arrival in New York are known, making this early work from 1826 a rare find. Bradley's most well-known and acclaimed painting, "The Cellist" of 1832, is located at the Phillips Collection in Washington, D.C. and clearly reflects Bradley's British origins. Bradley most often painted full-length figures of children, either in detailed interiors or within a landscape. An intriguing mix between the two settings, the work offered here poses three children on the railing of a classical portico with hints of a lush landscape behind them. The delicately painted, fresh-faced children look as though they were captured mid-play by the artist, who perfectly rendered their clothing and accessories. The detail of the figures and strategic use of color are striking amidst the architectural elements - a glimpse into the talent of this fascinating artist. Ref.: The National Gallery of Art.

21. Victor Gilbert (French, 1847-1933), "Reading Time", oil on canvas, signed lower left, "Sotheby's New York" label en verso, 18 in. x 15 1/4 in., framed. $4000/6000
Note: Known for his sensitively portrayed genre scenes, Victor Gilbert achieved high acclaim in his lifetime for his body of work, eventually receiving the distinctive Chevalier de la Légion d’Honneur title by the French government in 1897. While he remained a realist throughout his career, he was inevitably influenced by Impressionism which is evident in the bright color palette he utilized to capture his views of domestic simplicity.
In this painting, Gilbert depicts a grandmother, seated and reading aloud to a child who is standing in the middle of a shop. The contrast of the youthful versus older figure imbues the work with a sense of nostalgia and provides an added poignancy. The details of the surroundings are faithfully depicted from the overfilled baskets of fruit, the hares hanging from the ceiling, and the fowl lined atop the cage down to the needles of hay on the floor, kicked to the ground no doubt by the rabbit peeking through the bars of its enclosure.

A pier table by the Boston firm of Emmons & Archibald in the collection of the Museum of Fine Arts Boston features similar overall proportions, an incurvate plinth, and bulbous-turned feet. In the tradition of French Empire pier tables, both the table offered here and the MFA Boston example are smaller in size and are distinctively shallow in depth, compared to most American examples.

Originally the William Barron estate, Thurlow Lodge was purchased by gold rush investor and California politician Milton S. Latham in 1871 and the Herter Brothers were chosen to design the mansion’s lavish interiors during the subsequent renovation. Shortly after the renovation began, the mansion burned to its foundation and was completely reconstructed in the French Second Empire style. During the reconstruction, Christian Herter, head of the Herter Brothers firm, had recently returned from Paris and applied the latest Second Empire designs to the opulent rooms of the newly constructed Thurlow Lodge.
The pair of cabinets offered here are similar in style to a cabinet from Thurlow Lodge held in the collection of the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, made by the Herter Brothers for Milton S. Latham. These cabinets also correlate to a crème peinte bedroom suite in the same French taste that was sold by Bonham’s in 2015, with provenance to Thurlow Lodge and the Herter Brothers commission.

He became recognized for his skill as an animal portraitist after a commission by Count Hill of Rheintal Castle of his dogs caught the attention of the Austrian imperial court. Reichert eventually created over 600 additional portraits, all rendered in impressive detail, of Austrian nobilities’ pets.

98. Wouterus Verschuur (Dutch, 1812-1874), "Preparing for the Hunt", oil on canvas, signed lower right, 44 1/4 in. x 63 1/4 in., antique frame. $15000/25000
Provenance: Private Collection, Florida.
Note: Wouterus Verschuur, a Dutch artist born in Amsterdam to a jeweler father, became one of the premier animal painters of his time; he was particularly renowned for his depictions of horses. Studying under Pieter Gerardus Van Os, Verschuur was influential in the training of Anton Mauve, as well as his own son, Wouterus Verschuur, Jr. The Van Os School taught many generations of Dutch artists collectively known as the forerunners of the Hague School, and they were particularly well-versed in the anatomy of sheep, cows, horses, dogs, and other animals. The monumental painting offered here displays Verschuur’s talent with the portrayal of horses in motion. The artist perfectly captures the movement of the rearing horse in the foreground, as well as creating a well-composed and complex scene including dogs and hunters.

100. Daniel Ridgway-Knight (American, 1839-1924), "Gathering Flowers", oil on canvas, signed and inscribed "Paris" lower left, 32 3/4 in. x 25 7/8 in., framed. $20000/30000

Provenance: Kurt E. Schon, Ltd., New Orleans, LA.

Note: American artist Daniel Ridgway-Knight was known for his quaint scenes of peasant and provincial women in bucolic settings. Often he painted in a glass studio attached to his property in Poissy, France overlooking the Seine River. This ingenious structure sheltered him from the elements while he observed and faithfully documented models posed within his verdant garden.
In the scene depicted here, the model is perched on a simple wood bench, engrossed in the act of picking a pink rose. She perhaps decided to venture outside for some mending in the sunlight, as she is gingerly holding a stretch of fabric in her right hand with another patterned cloth forgotten on a nearby stool. The hazy horizon and textured grassy foreground is punctuated with pops of deeply saturated flowers which frame the young woman, instilling this everyday sight with a sense of voyeuristic intimacy. With its delicate brushstrokes and romantic setting, this canvas is a poignant example of Ridgway-Knight’s love for the idyllic life of the French countryside.
