        Untitled (Seveal Birds)

      1920 - Frank Weston Benson (1862-1951) was an American Impressionist artist, and a member of the Ten American Painters. He began his Studies at the school of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston in 1879, under Otto Grundmann, and later studied at the Académie Julian in Paris. Upon return to America, he would become an instructor at the School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston. In 1888 Benson gained favorable attention in his first showing with the Society of American Artist in New York, with a piece that suggested the influence of academic Realism rather than Impressionism. By the early 1890s he began using his family as subjects; Benson later recalled having realized at the time that ¿design¿ was the most important component of painting. Consequently, works of the period provided evidence of a greater interest in patterns, silhouette, and abstract design. Late in his career, Frank Benson returned his boyhood interest in ornithological illustration. Following the 1913 Amory Show, Benson quietly moved to revolutionize the field of American sporting art. His rendering of wildlife, hunting, fishing, and camping infused the field with heightened artistic sensitivity, and reinvigorated a tradition- burdened field. Historical accounts indicate that Benson¿s teenage bird studies were extremely realistic. We can infer that they were similar to works by Alexander Pope (American, 1849-1924) and Louis Agassiz Fuertes (American, 1874-1927). Those painters concentrated on painting objects with precision. Each blue jay painted by Fuertes had exactly the same color tones and patterns. This is realism in the sense that twelve jays in a cage look precisely the same. In contrast, Benson¿s artistic training brought him to realize that a viewer¿s experience of a jay¿s appearance varies with the tint of light cast by the sky, whether the jay is front lit or back lit, and the background. Furthermore, Benson realized that we did not perceive the precise feather pattern of a bird at a distance of 20 feet. Benson had learned that our eyes perceive light, not objects, and he introduced that realization into the sporting art field. Other artists such as Roland Clark, A. L. Ripley, and Richard Bishop quickly followed his lead. In 1915 he first exhibited etchings of wild fowl, to popular acclaim. After 1920 Benson turned increasingly to the depiction of landscapes featuring wild life, an outgrowth of his interest in hunting and fishing, from then on producing a steady and profitable output of etchings and watercolors in this vein. At the request of fellow artist and conservationist Jay Norwood ¿Ding¿ Darling, Benson designed the second Federal Duck Stamp on 1935. Etching, 12.8 x 17 inches

Gedruckt auf die Rückseite einer Ankündigung des Propyläenverlages, Berlin (o.J.) für die Vorzugsausgabe einer Kalbpergamentmappe, in 200 Exemplaren gedruckt, mit einer Original-Lithographie von Max Slevogt. Vermutlich handelt es sich um die Ankündigung für: Alte Märchen mit der Feder erzählt. Berlin, Propyläen-Verlag 1920. (Vgl. Max Slevogt. Das druckgraphische Werk. 1914-1933. Düsseldorf, G. Söhn 2002, Nr. 329. Provenienz: Sammlung Max Osborn (1870 - 1946), Publizist in Berlin; Galerie Michael Hasenclever, München.. Max Slevogt studierte ab 1885 an der Akademie der bildenden Künste in München. Er orientierte sich zunächst an den realistischen Malweisen von Wilhelm Leibl (1844-1900) und Wilhelm Trübner (1851-1917), die den Stil seines Frühwerks bestimmten. Durch einen Aufenthalt an der Academie Julian in Paris 1889 begann er sich dann mit dem Impressionismus auseinanderzusetzten. 1901 zog er - zusammen mit Lovis Corinth (1858-1925) - nach Berlin, wo er Mitglied der 'Berliner Secession' wurde. In dieser Zeit entwickelte er seinen eigenen, charakteristischen Malstil, der anfangs noch vom Jugendstil beeinflusst war. Neben seinen meisterhaften Porträts, Figuren- und Landschaftsbildern begann Slevogt 1906 in Berlin Bühnenbilder und Kostüme für Max Reinhardt und die Kammerspiele des Deutschen Theaters, die gerade neu gegründet worden waren, zu entwerfen. Auf einer Reise durch Ägypten 1914 entstanden 21 Gemälde und zahlreiche Aquarelle und Zeichnungen, die einen Höhepunkt in seinem künstlerischen Werk darstellen. Nach Ausbruch des Ersten Weltkriegs wurde er als 'Kriegsmaler' an die Westfront geschickt. 1917 erhielt er den Vorsitz einer Meisterklasse für Malerei an der Kunstakademie in Berlin. Große Bedeutung erlangte er auch als geistreicher und phantasievoller Illustrator sowie durch sein reichhaltiges und umfangreiches grafisches Werk.

      1920. first edition. With Eight Color Plates by Jessie Willcox Smith[SMITH, Jessie Willcox, illustrator]. A Child's Book of Modern Stories. Compiled by Ada M. Skinner and Eleanor M. Skinner. New York: Duffield and Company, 1920. First edition. Small quarto (9 1/4 x 7 inches; 235 x 178 mm.). [xii], 341, [1 blank] pp. Eight full-page color plates. Publishers dark blue linen over boards, front cover lettered in gilt and with an additional color illustration pasted on, spine lettered in gilt. Neat ink inscription dated 1920 on front free-endpaper. A fine copy in the original color pictorial dust jacket.This collection of sixty-six 'Modern Stories' is split into four section: Home Tales, The Story Garden, Cheerful Stories and Tales and Legends Beautiful."This is a companion volume to the famous "A Child's Book of Stories," but here the stories are by modern writers. There are between sixty and seventy stories by such authors as Thornton Burgess, Abbie Farwell Brown, Louisa M. Alcott, Josephine Scribner Gates, Mary Gaylord Jean Ingelow, George MacDonald, etc." (dust jacket, front flap). "Probably contributing most to Smith's fame was her continuing relationship with the Good Housekeeping Company. Impressed with her exemplary illustrations for Mother Goose, Good Housekeeping moved quickly to commission Smith to illustrate that journal's cover on consecutive issues in the calendar year of 1918. As it turned out, a Smith color picture would appear on each and every cover of Good Housekeeping from December 1917 through April 1933. There was no issue in January 1920 due to a strike. Smith added another cover in May of 1934, for a total of 184 separate illustrations. These covers for Good Housekeeping represent one of the longest runs of published covers by a single artist in the history of pictorial illustration. Although the subject matter varied, a predominant theme was the representation of the American home and family life, which invariably included children in all sorts of activities. Along with Smith's first published cover, the magazine included a short preface introducing the illustrator… Many of the illustrations first published as covers for Good Housekeeping were later assembled together as book illustrations. This was true of A Child's Book of Modern Stories (1920), A Little Child's Book of Stories (1922), A Very Little Child's Book of Stories (1923), Boys and Girls of Bookland (1923), and A Child's Book of Country Stories (1925).

        MAIN STREET, The story of Carol Kennicott

      New York: Harcourt, Brace and Howe, 1920. First edition. 8vo, publisher’s original blue cloth with orange lettering panels on the spine and upper cover lettered in blue and ruled in orange. (8), 451 pp. An unusually well preserved and handsome copy, tight and in very nice condition at the extremities. The cloth is dark and clean, the orange panels and lettering are complete and especially fresh and well preserved. FIRST EDITION OF THIS IMPORTANT AMERICAN NOVEL OF THE 20TH CENTURY. MAIN STREET is important for a number of reasons — among them is the portrayal of a strong female protagonist, and what one might now call feminist themes by a male writer. MAIN STREET was initially awarded the 1921 Pulitzer Prize for literature, but was rejected by the Board of Trustees, who overturned the jury's decision. The prize went, instead, to Edith Wharton for The Age of Innocence. In 1926 Lewis refused the Pulitzer when he was awarded it for ARROWSMITH.

        Main Street

      Harcourt Brace & Howe, New York 1920 - Blue cloth with small orange panels. Lacking dust jacket. This copy inscribed by the author "To Florence + Dick Boeckel, who endured me while I wrote it-Sinclair Lewis" Florence Boeckel was a prominent suffragist and press chairman of the National Women's Party. Also a noted pacifist, activist supporter of the League of Nations and the National Council for the Prevention of War, all things Lewis believed in. Lewis wrote the introduction to her famous pacifist manifesto, Between War and Peace: A Handbook for Peace Workers (1928). Lewis and Boeckel lived and worked in New York in the teens and he probably bounced passages of Main Street off them while it was still in manuscript. Well loved copy with overall wear, especially to the extremities. Interior clean.Nice association copy. Size: Octavo [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]
