258. Enrique Alferez (Mexican/New Orleans, 1901-1999), "Fisherman Hauling in the Net", charcoal on paperboard, signed lower left, 29 1/2 in. x 41 3/4 in., framed. $2000/3000
Note: Enrique Alferez created hundreds of pieces throughout his career, designing works of art in both two and three-dimensional media. Photos of his studio show sculptures in progress as well as large scale drawings in charcoal and chalk, sometimes standalone pieces and sometimes sketches for a sculpture. His characteristic stylized figures and chiaroscuro shading technique are both exhibited in the drawing of a fisherman casting his net offered here. The cross-hatching of the net, combined with the chalk highlights, create an elegant pattern similar to those seen in Art Deco architecture and sculpture of the 1930s.

259. José Francisco Xavier de Salazar y Mendoza (Mexican/New Orleans, c. 1750-1802), "Portrait of a New England Gentleman", oil on canvas, unsigned, 40 1/4 in. x 31 1/4 in., framed. $20000/30000
Note: The handsome gentleman in a late 18th century-style frock coat and cravat in the portrait offered here typifies the archetypal sitter Salazar painted at the turn of the 18th century, as well mirrors the pose and composition often used by the artist. Salazar was known to have painted military figures, sea captains, and wealthy merchants, many of whom had come to New Orleans from other locales for business and political purposes. The standing portrait at waist-length with one hand in the sitter’s coat had become an iconic pose by the late 1700s, and Salazar implemented it often for his prominent male clients. Three other known paintings by Salazar, Colonel Thomas Butler, Jr., sold in these rooms in February 2017, Miguel Dragon, located at the Louisiana State Museum, and the Portrait of a Bristol, Rhode Island Gentleman, all have nearly identical poses, as well as the same trompe l’oeil painted oval seen in the current lot.

260. Clarence Millet (American/New Orleans, 1897-1959), "Old Gateway, New Orleans", oil on canvas, signed lower right, 22 in. x 26 in., framed. $10000/15000

261. Clarence Millet (American/New Orleans, 1897-1959), "The Shadow", oil on canvas, signed lower left, "National Academy of Design 1957 Annual Exhibition" label with title en verso, 36 in. x 30 in., framed. $20000/30000
Note: Known for popularizing the Impressionist style of painting within the New Orleans art community, Clarence Millet has long been acknowledged as one of the most important and influential painters working in the city in the early and mid-twentieth century. Millet frequently exhibited both in New York and New Orleans. The current lot, which depicts the courtyard of Millet's studio building, the Governor Claiborne House at 628 Toulouse Street, includes a label en verso detailing the inclusion of this painting in the 1957 Annual Exhibition at the National Academy of Design, where Millet was a member. Millet's studio space at 628 Toulouse Street, where fellow artist Alberta Kinsey also rented, had once been the residence of W.C.C. Claiborne, Governor of Louisiana from 1812-1816; the historic building has a beautiful courtyard that has been painted and photographed by artists for many decades. Millet admired the beauty of the space, and he sketched and painted the scene throughout day to capture the variations in the light, another Impressionist practice. "The Shadow" depicts an evening view of the courtyard from above, including dramatic lights and darks within the composition. The streetlight from the right side of the canvas adds a secondary light source to the moonlight, causing the long, sharp shadow, for which the painting is titled, of a person entering the courtyard.

262. Alexander John Drysdale (American/New Orleans, 1870-1934), "Monumental Louisiana Bayou with Live Oaks, Cypress and Cabin", 1929, oil on board, signed and dated lower left, 47 in. x 71 in., framed. $30000/50000
Note: This stunning example of a luminous bayou landscape by Alexander Drysdale exhibits the best of the artist’s techniques in both color and brushwork in a rare, large format composition. A beautiful scene depicting Drysdale’s iconic Live Oaks near a river, the inclusion of a small cabin adds a charming element to the composition. Drysdale blends his colors to create particularly vibrant blues, greens, and teals for the lush vegetation reflected in the water dotted with water lilies. Although he listed himself as a portrait painter in advertisements, Drysdale is best known for his Louisiana landscapes. Other known instances of Drysdale painting in a similar large-scale format to the work offered here include the canvases done to decorate the Weiss Dining Room, now conserved at Tulane University, the murals painted for the D. H. Holmes Department Store on Canal Street, and the murals done for the New Orleans Shushan Airport. Ref.: Buechner, Howard A. Drysdale: Artist of Myth and Legend. Metairie, LA: Thunderbird Press, 1985.

263. John McCrady (American/New Orleans, 1911-1968), "The Creation of Adam and Eve", 1951, oil on canvas, signed and dated lower left, remnant of exhibition label en verso, 25 in. x 48 in., original frame enhanced by the artist; together with a copy of photograph of McCrady family with the painting. (2 pcs.) $40000/60000
Note: Throughout his career, John McCrady painted numerous religious scenes inspired by his own spirituality and Biblical stories. These scenes, while still adhering to McCrady’s regionalist style, also verge on surrealism and abstraction. On the subject of these varying styles of painting, McCrady wrote, "I have never liked being classed in any definite school, as my work has much American Scene subject matter – but also plenty of fantasy – and is built on the abstract. All the painters of the stories of the Bible and Greek mythology were surrealists…any time a man paints an angel floating in the sky, he is painting surrealism. I have certainly done that." The work offered here, with a larger-than-life Adam and Eve dominating the composition while reclining in a stylized Garden of Eden, stylistically fits the criteria of a surrealist and abstract painting. The color scheme, with lush green fields and a bright blue sky, relates more to McCrady’s more traditional palette for his American Regionalist paintings and highlights the embedded traditional Biblical symbols. The emphasis on Adam’s ribs is a reference to the titular Bible story, where God made Eve from Adam’s rib. The small fig leaf on the left is clear foreshadowing of the fall of man, when Adam and Eve eat from the tree of knowledge, recognize their nudity, and cover themselves with fig leaves. Through these components, McCrady manages to successfully merge his Regionalist landscape style with a haunting and modernized Biblical subject.

264. Joseph Rusling Meeker (American/Louisiana, 1827-1887), "Bayou Lafourche", 1882, oil on canvas, signed and dated lower left, titled, dated and monogrammed en verso, 14 in. x 12 in., framed. $10000/15000
Note: The luminous Joseph Rusling Meeker bayou landscape offered here with a low horizon line and wide-open sky exhibits many of Meeker’s characteristic techniques. Meeker, who traveled throughout Louisiana sketching the rivers, lakes, and bayous, created many of his paintings at his studio in St. Louis, relying on his sketches and his vivid memories of the landscape to complete a finished canvas. In the painting here of Bayou Lafourche, the trees with Spanish moss, the reeds and water lilies, and the boat in the foreground display Meeker’s skill and attention to detail. This charming painting displays a lovely view of a Louisiana waterway.

265. George David Coulon (French/New Orleans, 1822-1904), "On the Tchéfunté River, (Tchefuncta.) Madisonville, La. / House of Mr. Lesassier", 1896, oil on academy board, signed and dated lower left, signed, titled, dated and inscribed en verso, 9 1/2 in. x 12 in., period frame. $8000/12000
Provenance: The Jay P. Altmayer Family Collection, Mobile, AL.
Note: In 1828, Louis Lesassier (1796-1859) married Carmelite Baham (1804-1846), whose grandfather, Jean Baptiste Baham (1730-1812), founded the city of Madisonville, Louisiana, in 1800. Originally known as Coquille, which means "shell" in French, the town was also sometimes referred to as Baham Village and is located where the Tchefuncte River meets Lake Pontchartrain. The couple had at least nine children, and the house likely was owned by one of them in 1896, when Coulon depicted it in the jewel-like work offered here. Well-established as a portraitist and landscape painter by the end of the 19th century, Coulon’s painterly style is evident. The meticulous depiction of the details on the house, trees, and the reflection in the Tchefuncte River demonstrate Coulon’s delicate technique and beautiful palette.

266. Alexander John Drysdale (American/New Orleans, 1870-1934), "Live Oak Tree, Louisiana Bayou", oil wash on board, signed lower right, sight 5 1/2 in. x 19 1/2 in., framed. $2000/3000

291. David Harouni (Iranian/New Orleans, b. 1962), "Untitled", c. 1998, oil on canvas, signed lower left, 114 in. x 114 in., unframed. $20000/30000
Note: The monumental lot offered here by New Orleans artist, David Harouni, is an exceptional example of his figural work. Harouni is well known for his series of haunting faces, which he refers to as representations of the "self." As Doug MacCash writes, "[t]hough his brushwork seems emotionally explosive… his iconic faces are meant to be still and Zen." That concept of "Zen" can be applied to the current lot. Despite the energetic brushwork and evocative color palette, the face is expressionless and tranquil, perhaps to make it easier to transpose one’s own thoughts and feelings onto the figure or "self" on the canvas. With its massive size, this work proves particularly poignant and immersive.
