301. American Classical Carved, Stenciled and Bronze-Mounted Mahogany Pier Table, c. 1825, attr. to Anthony Quervelle, Philadelphia, later walnut top, gadrooned frieze, acanthus and grape-carved scrolled supports with paw feet, mirror back flanked by reeded vasiform columns, shaped plinth, turned and gadrooned feet, h. 39 in., w. 42 in., d. 21 in. $3000/5000
Note: The pier table offered here is exemplary of the work of Philadelphia cabinetmaker Anthony G. Quervelle. Retaining its original bronze mounts and gilt stencil decoration, this table features scrolled supports ending in paw feet over a raised plinth, a distinctive element of Quervelle pier tables.
The table is related to several examples illustrated in the Boor publication Philadelphia Empire Furniture. Among these examples, the present lot shares many of the same features as a Quervelle pier table made for the White House under President Andrew Jackson, including the intricately carved scrolled supports, gadrooned molding, gilt stencil decoration, a similarly shaped lower shelf, and lobed feet.

302. American Aesthetic Carved Giltwood Footstool, late 19th c., shaped legs with faux bamboo brackets, h. 7 in., dia. 14 1/2 in. $200/300

303. American Carved Walnut Tester Bed, c. 1840, ogee cornice, scrolled headboard, octagonal faceted posts, bulbous-turned feet, h. 114 in., l. 86 in., w. 66 in. $3000/5000
Provenance: Judge Reuben Lee "Buzz" Harper, Natchez, MS; to a private collection.



304. George Rodrigue (American/Louisiana, 1944-2013), "Untitled (Bayou Scene with Sugar Kettle and Cabin)", 1996, oil on canvas, signed lower left, artist stamp and inscribed en verso, 24 in. x 30 in., framed. $20000/30000
Note: Around the time of the painting offered here, George Rodrigue acquired a sugar pot (as he called them) for his front yard in Lafayette, which he converted into a fish pond with fountain. The artist had a longstanding fascination for sugar kettles, so perhaps not surprisingly, the image of one made an appearance on this rare canvas. Created in 1996, this classic Rodrigue landscape harkens to the artist's earliest series of paintings with his iconic dark oaks and high horizon line. The palette is key to the later date however, as Rodrigue increasingly imbued his landscape with vibrant color. The bright blue of the sky is reminiscent of the Blue Dog series, and the unusual red brick supports beneath the cabin punctuate the dark ground.
Neal Auction Company would like to thank Wendy Rodrigue for her assistance with this catalogue note.

305. George Rodrigue (American/Louisiana, 1944-2013), "Blue Dog", mixed media on canvas board, signed lower left, 14 in. x 11 in., framed. $6000/8000

Note: To be included in John Fowler's forthcoming catalogue raisonné on William Aiken Walker.

306. George Rodrigue (American/Louisiana, 1944-2013), "Pirogues on the Bayou", pastel on paper, signed lower left, 9 1/4 in. x 14 3/8 in., framed. $2000/3000

307. Attributed to William S. Robinson (American/Mississippi, 1861-1945), "Ships in a Harbor", oil on canvas, unsigned, 11 in. x 12 in., framed. $2000/3000
Provenance: Descended in the family of William Woodward.
Note: William S. Robinson and William Woodward met early in life, when both were students at the Massachusetts Normal Art School in Boston, and they remained friends throughout their lives. Robinson’s favorite locale to paint was Old Lyme, Connecticut, and he lived there for the majority of his life. However, when the patron of the Lyme Art Colony, Florence Griswold, died in 1937, Robinson decided to move to Biloxi, Mississippi, where he had previously visited Woodward and his family. Robinson was well-known for his acclaimed landscapes and seascapes in New England. In the work offered here, the shapes created by the multiple boats at shore provide an interesting, almost abstract composition with the tangle of masts, sails, and ropes in the upper portion of the canvas. Woodward, who also painted seascapes and boats, clearly admired this work of Robinson’s, and it descended in the Woodward family collection.

313. William Trost Richards (American, 1833-1905), "Waves Crashing on a Rocky Shore with Distant Schooner", 1901, oil on canvas, signed and dated lower left, 34 1/2 in. x 60 in., framed. $40000/60000
Provenance: MARK Arts, Mary R. Koch Arts Center (formerly Wichita Art Association), Wichita, KS, 2018.
Note: Working in the Pennsylvania, New Jersey, and Rhode Island area, William Trost Richards was best known for his coastal scenes, which included the crashing waves and cloudy skies of New England seascapes. Richards also admired the American landscape, and he worked to hone his technique in realism, rather than the more romanticized style of the Hudson River School painters.
The painting on offer here brings together marine and landscape painting in one monumental canvas with a rocky shore in the foreground, finely painted asymmetrical outcropping of rocks on the right, schooner in the background, and distant mountains. Soft sunlight illuminates the mountainside with delicate hues, gently kissing the edges of the rock formations and resulting in a dramatic, spiritual scene that envelopes the viewer. The white meringue-like peaks in the far distance paired with the small scale of the boat sailing along the horizon underscore the immensity of the view and evoke a sense of grandeur.

314. Clementine Hunter (American/Louisiana, 1886-1988), "Family Brawl", oil on canvas board, monogrammed lower right, 14 in. x 18 in., framed. $3000/5000

318. William Woodward (American/New Orleans, 1859-1939), "Feeding the Ducks by the Pier, New England", 1890, watercolor on paper, signed and dated lower left, 16 in. x 22 in., framed. $1000/1500

319. Alvan Fisher (American, 1792-1863), "Figures by a Rocky Inlet", 1855, oil on canvas, monogrammed and dated lower center, 21 in. x 17 in., framed. $1500/2500
Provenance: Lee B. Anderson Collection; Doyle New York, Sept. 19, 2012, lot 1003.



320. François-Adolphe Grison (French, 1845-1914) and Gaston Gilbert Daniel Save (French, 1844-1901), "The Tavern", 1874, oil on canvas, signed and dated lower right, "Kurt E. Schon, Ltd., New Orleans" label with artist and title on stretcher, 111 1/4 in. x 62 7/8 in., framed. $15000/25000
Provenance: Private Collection; Kurt E. Schon, Ltd., New Orleans, LA.
Note: Gaston Save, who had attended the École des Beaux-Arts in Paris, exhibited in the Salon of 1870 and won a bronze medal. Passionate about history, politics, and theater, Save often created illustrations for magazines as well as collaborating on large-scale wall decorations and theater sets. Adolphe Grison, who had exhibited at the Paris Salon in 1873, was a well-known genre scene painter. The two artists collaborated to create the cheerful late 18th century tavern scene offered here.
This immense canvas is a feast for the eyes. Splendor and frivolity abound as each square inch offers new details to be discovered. The foreground is framed with meticulously rendered flora and an abandoned game of lawn bowling. At the center of the canvas, a young child and man with a hurdy-gurdy play for a group of sumptuously-dressed and well-coiffed ladies and gentlemen, while the tavern owner and a comely maiden fetch mid-day drinks. In the background, a teeming crowd enjoys a festival on a bright summer day, and one can almost hear the revelry. The impressive verticality of the canvas topped with a carved arch makes the work a dramatic architectural feat as well as an artistic one.

321. Italian School, 18th c., "Capriccio with Ruins", oil on canvas, unsigned, 37 in. x 44 1/2 in., framed. $1200/1800

322. Eliab Metcalf (American/Massachusetts, 1785-1834), "Portrait of Theodoric Romeyn Beck", oil on canvas, signed and titled en verso, 28 in. x 22 in., framed. $1500/2500
Provenance: Neal Auction, Oct. 13, 2001, lot 454.
Note: Son of Caleb Beck and Catharine Theresa Romeyn, Theodric Beck became a medical doctor at the age of twenty in 1811. Working in New York as a physician, an author, and an educator, Beck became the first expert on forensic medicine, writing the book Elements of Medical Jurisprudence in 1823. The portrait of Beck offered here displays many of Eliab Metcalf’s classic techniques, including the gradation from light to dark in the background and the fine brushwork depicting the sitter’s facial features and hair. Metcalf lived much of his life in New Orleans, Cuba, and the Caribbean due to his health; however, he traveled yearly to New York City, painting prominent citizens throughout the area.

323. John Bunyan Bristol (American, 1826-1909), "A Ruined Building in an Upland Landscape, near an Andean Lake (possibly Alto, Peru)", oil on canvas, unsigned, artist label en verso, 18 in. x 30 in., framed. $1000/2000

Note: The extraordinary Regency cabinetry of the table offered here and especially the boullework, which may be of earlier date and incorporated within the frieze and the supports here, indicates a possible attribution to Thomas Hope. The Classical antique design is in the French style of Percier and Fontaine’s Recuil de Décorations Intérieures, 1802, promoted by the connoisseur Thomas Hope (1769-1831) in the furnishings of his Duchess Street mansion.

335. Fine Suite of Four Antique Louis XV-Style Painted Fauteuils, shaped crest rail, padded back and arms, floral-carved seat rail, cabriole legs, floral Aubusson upholstery, h. 37 in., w. 25 in., d. 23 in. $2000/3000

337. Fine German Carved, Polychrome and Parcel-Gilt Bombé Commode in the Louis XV Taste, c. 1750, attr. to Johann Michael Hoppenhaupt, Berlin, molded serpentine marble top, three graduated drawers, elegantly carved rocaille stiles, conforming paneled sides, cabriole legs, incurvate scrolled feet, h. 34 3/4 in., w. 59 in., d. 28 in. $30000/50000
Provenance: Albrecht Neuhaus, Würzburg; Property of a German Private Collector, Christie's London, July 5, 2001, Lot 188; Property of a Gentleman, Christie's London, July 5, 2007, Lot 164.
Note: This exuberantly carved and beautifully proportioned bombé commode is closely related to the designs of the esteemed 18th century German cabinetmaker Johann Michael Hoppenhaupt. Renowned for the interiors of the great palaces in Potsdam and Berlin under King Frederick the Great, Hoppenhaupt’s Rococo style emulated the grandeur of the French court under Louis XV, while maintaining a distinctively German eccentricity through the use of exaggerated proportions and bold polychrome paint decoration.
In 1753, Hoppenhaupt published a series of designs that are linked to furniture from the palaces at Potsdam, including a gilt-gesso commode from the bedroom of Frederick the Great at Sanssouci, nearly identical in form to the commode in the present lot.

Provenance: Sotheby's London, Noblesse Oblige, Apr. 14, 2011, lot 258.
Note: According to the Sotheby’s Noblesse Oblige catalogue, by family tradition, the elaborately inlaid games table in the present lot belonged to August, Count Neidhardt von Gneisenau (1760-1831), a Prussian field marshal who was one of the key figures in rebuilding the Prussian army after its defeat by Napoleon in 1806. A brilliant military strategist, Gneisenau’s successes won him praise by Tsar Alexander I of Russia, Emperor Franz of Austria, and King Friedrich Wilhelm III of Prussia. As the chief of staff to Gebhard Leberecht von Blücher, Gneisenau aided in Napoleon’s eventual defeat at Waterloo in 1815.

351. School of Charles-Balthazar-Julien-Févret de Saint-Mémin (French/American, 1770-1852), "Profile Portraits of Judge Hugh Nelson and Eliza Kinloch Nelson", 19th c., 2 multi-colored chalks on woven beige paper, unsigned, full identifications on handwritten ink labels en verso of backing boards, sights 20 3/4 in. x 14 3/4 in., black-and-gilt-decorated verre églomisé mats in matching frames. (2 pcs.) $3000/5000
Provenance: Neal Auction, Sept. 13, 2014, lot 235.
Note: These fine drawings are a reprise of Saint-Mémin's typical style, on lightly-tinted paper, at precisely his standard size; they are displayed in black-painted and gilt-decorated glass mats very similar to the originals in the State Department. The inscription labels found here en verso, evidently of the 19th c.—together with Saint-Mémin's standard small circular engraving at the National Portrait Gallery in Washington, labeled in the artist's own hand, "Nelson 1808" – tell us that Mr. and Mrs. Nelson—then respectively 40 and 27 years old—sat for Saint-Mémin (using his famous technique of the 'physiognotrace') in Richmond, during his sojourn there from early July of 1807 to April or early May of 1808.
Hugh Nelson (1768-1836) was born in Yorktown and studied law at the College of William and Mary at Williamsburg. Nelson was a younger associate of Thomas Jefferson's; the latter's father, dying in 1757 when Jefferson was only 14, had appointed as his executor, and as his son's guardian, the eminent physician and statesman Dr. Thomas Walker (1715-1794), whose son John was Jefferson’s classmate. John Walker (1744-1809), only one year younger than Jefferson and perhaps his closest friend, also attended William and Mary with him, and made Jefferson one of the groomsmen at his marriage in 1764 to Elizabeth Moore. The Walkers' only daughter Mildredwas married in 1781 to a young Congressman from South Carolina, Francis Kinloch of Charleston. That couple had only one daughter, Eliza; she was almost the same age as Jefferson's own daughters, and given Jefferson's closeness to both the Nelson family and especially his neighbors and close friends the Walkers, it is hardly surprising that Hugh Nelson in fact married Eliza Kinloch in 1799.
Hugh and Eliza (the subjects of these two drawings) moved permanently to Albemarle County in 1802, and on the deaths of both her parents in 1809, she and her husband inherited their estate, "Belvoir," where they raised their ten children. Hugh Nelson represented his county in the Virginia Assembly from 1805 to 1809, while also being a magistrate in the state's General Court; in 1811 he was elected to the U. S. Congress, in which he served for a dozen years. He resigned that position in 1823 to accept his friend James Monroe's appointment as minister plenipotentiary to the Court of Spain, where he remained until 1825. Throughout his years of public service, he stayed in close touch with Thomas Jefferson, until the latter's death in 1826; a large selection of Nelson correspondence is preserved in the Library of Congress. Hugh Nelson served a final brief term in the Virginia House of Delegates in 1828-29; he also participated on several occasions in the General Convention of the Protestant Episcopal Church in America. He was, perhaps, principally celebrated for his extraordinary recall—mainly deriving from his long friendship with Jefferson and his intimate contact with Monroe—about the lives of the Founding Fathers.
