        Nantes - Rue Fourchon - Quai de la Fosse.

      S.n. 1920 - - S.n., S.l. circa 1920, 25x30,5cm (dimensions du cadre) 11,5x14,5cm (dimensions du dessin), une feuille sous marie-louise encadrée. - Dessin original aux crayons de couleur et pastels représentant une vue de Nantes. Edmond Heuzé, pseudonyme d'Amédée Letrouvé (1884-1967), est un dessinateur, peintre, graveur et écrivain français. Pendant une trentaine d'années, Edmond Heuzé vivra de dix-sept petits métiers divers : Nénesse le fait entrer sous le pseudo de « Williams » comme danseur dans la troupe du Moulin Rouge avec La Goulue, ce qui lui permet de faire le tour du monde. Il devient également marchand, intermédiaire, camelot, régisseur de cirque ambulant, danseur de claquettes chez Maxim's, etc. C'est dans cette dernière profession qu'il aura l'occasion de peindre le monde du cirque à ses moments de loisirs. Il épouse Nina Bacquet, la directrice du cirque Médrano. Réformé en 1904, il s'engage comme volontaire en 1914. Avant la déclaration de la Première Guerre mondiale, il était conservateur de la collection d'émaux du grand-duc Nicolas Mikhaïlovitch de Russie. Il est incorporé au bout de six tentatives infructueuses comme gardien au magasin d'habillement du 22e régiment d'infanterie, comme André Utter, et s'en inspira pour une série de peintures intitulée Les Masques. En 1918, après divers métiers, il devient directeur de la Galerie Sagot, rue Laffitte, où il vend des toiles de ses amis Maurice Utrillo, Suzanne Valadon, Rouault, ainsi que les siennes. Les douze tableaux de la série Les Masques sont vendus durant les deux premiers jours. À cette époque Edmond Heuzé fut le témoin de mariage d'André Utter et Suzanne Valladon. Il conserva des liens étroits avec Maurice Utrillo, Jules Depaquit et Tiret-Bognet. Grâce à la générosité de Georges Chéron, marchand de tableaux, il peut recommencer à peindre. À partir de 1920, il expose à la galerie Bernheim-Jeune ainsi qu'à la galerie Chiron en 1923, et peut désormais vivre de son art qu'il consacre alors aux portraits, notamment dans le milieu du cirque. En 1938, il obtient le prix Paul-Guillaume pour le portrait du mime Farina. [Attributes: First Edition]

        Chtenie odna iz obyazannostei cheloveka (Reading is one of a Person's Duties)

      Petrograd Gosudarstvennoe Izdatel'stvo (1920) - Framed poster measuring 19 inches by 26 inches. This two-color lithograph was printed in Petrograd (now St. Petersburg) by the Petrograd State Publishing House and shows a man and a woman reading books while a hammer rests against the man's leg and more books lay in a pile at their feet. The accompanying text declares, in Cyrillic, "Reading is one of a Person's Duties." Starting in 1919, the Soviet government began a campaign to eradicate illiteracy by mandating compulsory education for children and enrolling illiterate adults in special literacy schools. Part of this new policy included issuing propagandistic posters linking literacy to one's duty as a Communist and positioning knowledge as the key to greater production. This poster, showing the tools of production next to books, was in close alignment with this new campaign. Writing in pencil and ink to upper margin of poster, otherwise fine in wooden frame measuring 23 1/2 by 30 inches. (White, The Bolshevik Poster, pp. 104-105, 108, plate 5.36)

        correspondance manuscrite sur la question de la Turquie : 22 pièces dont de nombreux documents autographes de Lyautey

      1920 - Maréchal Lyautey : Correspondance entre le Maréchal Lyautey et l’éditeur Max Leclerc, dans une enveloppe à l’en-tête de la Librairie Armand Colin, portant les mentions manuscrites : « Lyautey Poincaré Millerand ; efforts pour préparer départ Lyautey du Maroc et son orientation vers aff. Musulmanes en général ». Ce dossier inédit, d’une considérable importance historique, confirme la clairvoyance, la fermeté, le sens politique, voire l’intuition prophétique d’un des rares hommes politiques et administrateurs coloniaux qui ait gardé intactes sa réputation et sa popularité jusqu’à nos jours. Le dossier comprend : 1) Lettre dactylographiée de 6 p. signée de Lyautey, datée de Rabat le 20/11/1922, traitant de la politique extérieure de la France et critiquant sévèrement le Quai d’Orsay: « il n’y a pas de Maison plus déconcertante que notre Quai d’Orsay [ .] Le microbe est dans la maison. Nos agents à l’extérieur sont toujours dans le vide." Lyautey souligne que ses succès au Maroc ont été liés à sa maîtrise des moyens locaux, mais réfute à l’avance toute action de sa part en Turquie : « Mais que voudriez-vous que je fasse à Constantinople ? Où en tout cas, je ne serai pas le maître [ .] Je bénis donc le Ciel qu’on n’ait pas songé à m’y envoyer » 2) Lettre dact. de 12 p. sur papier en-tête (Le Maréchal Lyautey Résident Général au Maroc) signée de Lyautey, datée de Rabat le 18/01/1923, traitant de l’Orient, la question musulmane, la politique intérieure française, ses relations avec la Turquie, les erreurs et maladresses de la politique anglaise. Lyautey est opposé à une politique musulmane d’ensemble : « Si, toute l’année dernière, j’ai témoigné à toute occasion mes sympathies pour le mouvement d’Angora, si je me suis prêté à la manifestation que vous savez à la Mosquée de Paris, c’est parce que je me trouvais devant un fait acquis, la force d’Angora, l’enthousiasme que ce mouvement déchaînait dans le monde musulman, d’où intérêt immédiat, au point de vue des seuls intérêts de la France au Maroc d’en tirer le bénéfice [ ] Je rendais d’ailleurs ainsi service au gouvernement sans le compromettre [ ] Mais, tout en procédant à cette manœuvre nécessaire, je n’étais nullement emballé sur le succès turc dont je vois tout le péril [ ] La manœuvre est très délicate. Il s’agit là, je le reconnais cyniquement, de jouer constamment double-jeu ». Sur le maintien d’un régime d’ordre en Turquie, il écrit : « A cet égard son passé est très peu encourageant et si, aujourd’hui, elle compte un groupe d’hommes tels que Kemal, Ismet et autres Il poursuit sur la politique qu’il souhaite que la France tienne dans ses intérêts vis-à-vis d’Ismet pacha et Mustapha Kemal ; il se sent honoré et sûr de la confiance de Millerand et de lui seul, il précise que les autres hommes politiques qui l’ont subi bien malgré eux pendant quelques semaines au Ministère de la Guerre [ ] ont dansé la danse du scalp en me voyant hors de cause en tant qu’homme politique ». Il précise ensuite son opinion et son action sur la politique intérieure, et ce qui le sépare, bien qu’il soit pour une royauté parlementaire, de l’Action Française, regardant Valois « comme un péril public [ ] J’ai toujours eu horreur de tous les boulangismes [ ] Le boulangisme, puis l’antisémitisme, puis dans l’ordre inverse la poussée d’antimilitarisme et de révolution qui a suivi l’affaire Dreyfus [ ] c’est toujours la même chose ». 3) Correspondance manuscrite, échangée entre Lyautey (4 lettres), son épouse (1 pièce), Berthe Gaulis (10 pièces) et M. Leclerc, concernant en grand partie les rapports avec la Turquie. 4) 2 télégrammes de Lyautey à M. Leclerc. 5) Rapport dact., adressé à Lyautey le 06/01/1923, sur l’hygiène au Maroc et lettre du 12/02/1923. 6) Article dact. de M. Leclerc à l’éditeur du Times, du 26/08/1922. 7) Lettre à en-tête dact., portant de nbes corrections autographes, de M. Leclerc à Millerand, président de la République, et sa réponse. 8) Nombreuses enveloppes d’expédition conservées. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Soft Cover]

        Fine original portrait drawing by Benedikt Dolbin (1883-1971), titled by the artist "Franz Lehar (drawn from life)" and signed by Dolbin just below the portrait

      [ca 1920], [Vienna] - "[Lehar] was the leading operetta composer of the 20th century, being primarily responsible for giving the genre renewed vitality. His most successful operetta, Die lustige Witwe, has established a lasting place in the opera as well as the operetta repertory and, along with Offenbach and Johann Strauss II, Lehár has remained one of the most popular composers of light music." Andrew Lamb in Grove onlineDolbin (pseud. Fred Pollack) was born in Vienna and studied there. Trained as an engineer, he subsequently studied musical composition with Arnold Schoenberg and became a member of the Viennese group "Die Bewegung." He commenced drawing portraits of leading artistic personalities from ca. 1917 onwards for Viennese newspapers and journals. Because of his Jewish origins, Dolbin's work was banned in Austria in 1935, at which time he emigrated to the United States. The composer is depicted in profile, wearing collar and tie. Executed in pen and ink and black chalk on a light yellow background wash. 343 x 250 mm.

        ELEONORA DUSE: Fine head and shoulders portrait photograph of the actress, with the photographer's label on verso. Gelatin silver print on smooth paper

      [New York?], ca. 1920. 13 x 10 inches; framed. . One corner chipped, one-inch tear without loss at lower margin, else fine. On the verso is the photographer's printed label reading "ARNOLD GENTHE / 41 East 49th Street / New York City". Beaton and Buckland, The Magic Image, p. 139 (illustrating this photograph) . A strong, evocative image of the near-legendary Italian actress, shown in profile toward the end of her life. Arnold Genthe (1869-1942) was born in Germany and came to San Francisco in 1895 as tutor for the son of a German Baron. He subsequently worked there as a professional photographer before moving to New York in 1911; he photographed the most famous people during a career that spanned four decades. "Many of [Genthe's portraits] are...period pieces, but immutable are his portraits of Duse and Garbo." (Beaton and Buckland). In "Arnold Genthe 1869-1942" a catalogue of an exhibition of his work held in 1975 at the Staten Island (NY) Museum, Dorothy Wilcock Neumeyer writes concerning this photograph (which is illustrated): "Genthe once said that one of his greatest pictures was of Eleonora Duse, made on her farewell visit to the United States...he telephoned Duse and told her that he would like to photograph her when she reached New York. Duse said 'You do not want to photograph an old lady. Besides, I am not sure I will be in New York.' Genthe said, 'I will go to you in Pittsburgh. As for being old, you can never change the exquisite bone structure of your lovely face.' He went to Pittsburgh and took this great photograph. No make-up, the white hair, worn in the simple manner, a face poignant with beauty even more compelling than in her earlier years. Duse wept when she saw this picture." ONE OF GENTHE'S FINEST WORKS

      Éditions d'Art F. Boissonas, Geneva 1920 - Folio, iv, 5-133 pp., with 40 full-page photogravure plates with printed tissue guards, and numerous photogravures in text. Decorative borders and devices in color, printed on handmade paper. Printed wrappers, titled in gilt, with an orange inset medallion of Pegasus on the front cover.

Fred Boissonnas (1858 - 1946) was from an influential family of photographers, initially situated in Geneva. His accomplishments in photography enabled him to travel widely and often, and from these travels he produced several books, including works on Greece and Egypt. His Greek images totaled over 7000 photographs made with large format cameras, and are inclusive of historical architectural remains, and vistas and landscapes. In the early 20th century he founded the publishing firm of Boissonnas S.A., which produced several exquisite limited editions illustrated with hand-pulled photogravure plates, elegant design and letterpress of several color inks. In 1910 he made EN GRÈCE PAR MONTS ET PAR VAUX from his enormous archive of Greek negatives. That lavish large folio was limited to 230 numbered copies printed on handmade paper; in 1936 he also issued a second edition in a smaller folio format with a larger limitation. This is the first edition published in English, and has a limitation of 300 numbered copies. [Attributes: First Edition]

        Turnstones

      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, 11 1/2 x 16 inches
