        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. New spine applied, modest stain on rear wrapper and faint stain to top corner Over all certainly very good, with the photogravures beautifully rendered. 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

        ONE MAN'S INITIATION --- 1917

      George Allen & Unwin, London 1920 - First Edition. Inscribed by Dos Passos on the Front flyleaf, with also, glued to the second (blank) flyleaf, is an 11-line handwritten letter to the same collector agreeing to sign some of his books, and instructing him where & when to send them (in Provincetown). The book itself is a fine copy, and apart from one small edge-tear to the fore-edge of page 19/20, and some light fading to the spine edges, has almost no wear. This is thanks to a beautiful copy of the original dust-jacket, which has only the slightest wear to the extremities, but is otherwise bright and intact. This is the first issue of the book, with the word "flat" obliterated on line 32 of page 35. Highly desirable copy of this highspot - Dos Passos' first book - based on his experiences in the Great War. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]
