101. Louis C. Girault (American/Louisiana, act. New Orleans, 1870‑1892), "Bay Jaune (Fishing Camp on Pilings)", oil on artist board, signed lower right, partial "F.W. Devoe & Co., NY" label en verso, 11 3/4 in. x 18 1/4 in., period frame. $2000/3000
Provenance: Collection of Dagmar Foley, New Orleans, LA.
Note: Louis Girault, a cooper and cigar and tobacco merchant, pursued a career as an artist in the New Orleans area, where he was known to have honed his craft by copying works by other artists, including the renowned Richard Clague. This painting of a fishing camp on Bay Jaune closely follows an earlier painting of the same subject by Clague (sold in these rooms November 18, 2017, lot 344), which was owned by Mr. and Mrs. Aristide Hopkins of New Orleans and Biloxi. The Hopkins family was known for hosting social events for local artists at their family homes, and it is likely that is where Girault saw the painting. From there, he could have done sketches based on the painting itself, or gone to visit the site of the fishing camp before completing his own version.

Note: The current lot is very similar to a box sofa made by Duncan Phyfe in 1834 for George and Maria Clark Fox of New York City. The sofa and other seat furniture produced for the young couple are regarded as the earliest documented examples of Phyfe's work in the "Grecian Plain" style of the 1830s and 1840s. Like the Fox sofa, the lot offered here features rectangular legs, scrolled arm supports with molded bosses, and cylindrical arms terminating in square blocks. Among the variations on this sofa are the cylindrical crest rail, substituted for the scrolled crest rail seen on the Fox sofa, the ogee outline of the front seat rail, and the convex molded surfaces on the front of the legs, feet, and arm terminals. These same convex surfaces are found on the front of the plinth bases and feet of other furniture in the Grecian Plain style documented or attributed to Duncan Phyfe, including a sofa table dating 1837-1847, a pier table of similar date that descended in the family of William and Eliza Phyfe Vail, and a cellaret and cheval glass made for John L. and Susan Hampton Manning in 1841. Scrolled supports with molded bosses, which serve as arm supports on the sofa offered here, appear on various types of furniture made by Duncan Phyfe.

Note: The firm of Thomas Emmons and George Archibald, active between 1813 and 1825, was one of the leading cabinetmakers of Classical furniture in Boston. Made in the French Empire taste, the sécrétaireoffered as lot 167 is closely related to a stenciled Emmons & Archibald sécrétaire in the collection of the Museum of Fine Arts Boston (accession no. 1985.335). Both desks share the same overall form, bronze-mounted columnar stiles, cabinetry, and most notably, the distinctive foliate-carved front paw feet paired with bulbous-turned rear feet.

Provenance: Houmas House Plantation, Burnside, LA; Neal Auction Company, April 5, 2003, lot 258, and Sept. 12, 2015, lot 331.
Note: The proportions, use of finely figured veneers, poplar and pine secondary woods, fiche hinges, pressed brass escutcheons, restrained plinth with finely reeded legs and brass ball feet on this armoire are very similar to an armoire in the collection of Michael Hopping and an armoire from the collection of Nita D. Lide, sold by Neal Auction Company as lot 322, June 27, 2015. Interestingly the armoire offered here has a plain center stile and no side cabinet, unlike the aforementioned examples.
