        Frauenfigur vor angedeutetem Männerkopf im Hintergrund. Pastös, teils mehrschichtig aufgetragene expressive Malweise. Eingeritzte Signatur oben links. Nicht datiert.,

      (ca. 1930/1950). - 65 x 49 cm. *Melzer war zunächst als Porzellanmaler tätig, 1903 Beginn eines Kunststudiums in Weimar, 1906 wurde er Schüler von Prof. L. von Hoffmann. Als Mitbegründer der Neuen Secession baute er in den Jahren 1910/11 gemeinsam mit Georg Tappert die Schule für freie und angewandte Kunst auf und entwickelte nach impressionistischen Anfängen einen ganz individuellen expressiven Figuralstil. Großen Einfluss hatten 1912/13 Studienaufenthalte in Paris und Florenz. 1918 wurde er Mitbegründer der "Novembergruppe" und seit 1921 auch Lehrer an der Reimannschule. Im Nationalsozialismus wurden seine Bilder als entartet eingestuft und aus den Museen entfernt. Melzer blieb ein Individualist und ist nicht einer bestimmten Silrichtung zuzuordnen. Sein Werk bewegt sich vom Impressionismus zum expressiven Realismus, enthält ebenso kubistische Elemente bis hin zum Neorealismus und andere Sileinflüsse. - Das vorliegende Gemälde hat innerhalb seines Oeuvres eine gewisse Einzigartigkeit, es ist nicht in seine diversen Stilentwicklungen einzuordnen. Sprache: de Gewicht in Gramm: 3000 Öl auf Hartfaserplatte in schlichtem Atelierrahmen.

        A collection of 18 personal New Year greetings etchings and drypoints by Troy Kinney 1916-1937

      1930. Troy Kinney. A grouping of etchings and drypoints of various dancers created by Troy, and used by Troy and his wife Margaret as New Year greetings. The earliest, 1916, depicts a pre-Revolutionary couple in a minuet style dance. Through the years the portrayals included ballerinas, mythical satyrs, classical and whimsical risqué ballerinas, Russian dancers and exotic dancers. For a number of years, following the move to Connecticut, a whimsical ballerina was portrayed doing various household chores from chopping wood to stoking a fire. Several signed in pencil. Some with brief New Year greetings. The only indication as to the recipients is a “Dear Anna & Nat” at the base of one card. Each measures approx 5 ½” x 4 ½”. Some mounted or with mats.  Troy Kinney ((Kansas City, 1871 - Falls Village, Connecticut, 1938) was most notable for his works portraying dance performers, fanciful subjects, and classically styled nudes. He worked with dance performers, including Ruth St. Denis, Anna Pavlova, and Sophie Pflanz among others. He co-authored with his wife the books "Social Dancing of Today" and "The Dance: Its Place in Art and Life", for which he traveled throughout the world to study various dance styles. It remains to this day one of the most comprehensive works on the subject. Kinney's original drypoints and etchings are now included in the collections of the Library of Congress, Washington, DC., the Chicago Art Institute, the Cleveland Museum and the New York Public Library.

        La tradición de América. Su valoración subjetiva. Prólogo del Excmo. Duque de Alba, Buenos Aires, (Junta de Historia y Numismática, Col. “Biblioteca”, tomo VIII, “El Ateneo” Casa editora), 1930.

      1930 - In-4º mayor.- 205 p.- Ilustrado con numerosas láminas, viñetas y facsímiles.- Uno de los 250 ejemplares en papel “Antique” (nº 133), de una tirada total de 300.- Encuadernación doublée en marroquí negro de grano grueso, lomo de cuatro gruesos nervios, títulos dorados, interior de tapas en marroquí habano con recuadro de filetes dorados, guardas en moaré marrón, cantos dorados sur témoins, cortes con filete dorado, cubiertas y lomo originales conservados, estuche de interior afelpado y bordes de marroquí (G. Levitzky).- Dedicatoria manuscrita del autor “Al Sr. Ingº Emilio Mihura, afectuosamente, su amigo E. Ruiz Guiñazú. S/c Arenales 1662”. Gran americanista e hispanófilo, la obra de Enrique Ruiz Guiñazú apunta a articular la tradición inaugurada en América por los colonizadores peninsulares con la construcción de una identidad continental indisociable de un mundo institucional, espiritual y hasta racial que inscribe sus raíces en la propia Edad Media. Sin embargo, este propósito no es ajeno a una clara intención vinculada con situaciones político-ideológicas inmediatas al momento en que fue redactada: “Doy a la estampa este libro para robustecer el alma del pueblo argentino, precisado de cohesión social y de un concepto histórico más definido; preservándole así, contra el aluvión inmigratorio que debilita el sentimiento nacionalista y el esplendor del fuego sagrado”. Distinguido ejemplar, encuadernado por uno de los grandes maestros del siglo XX. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        Sammlung von tls. eigenh. Notenhandschriften eigener und fremder Werke.

      Verschiedene Orte, ca. 1810-1930. - Zusammen 433 SS. eigene Werke bzw. Werkfragmente, Entwürfe u. dgl. und 1329 SS. Werke bzw. Werkfragmente, Entwürfe u. a. anderer Komponisten in Abschriften. Josef Schneider, geboren 1866 in Bad Reichenhall, kam 1888 als Schulleiter ins niederösterreichische Hautzendorf, wo er unterrichtete und die dortige Musikkapelle leitete. Sein kompositorisches Schaffen umfaßt zahlreiche Märsche, Mazurken, Gavotten und Walzer wie etwa "Der Lenz", "Im Mondenschein", "Maiglöckchen", "Mühlgang", "Kellergeister" und "Prinz Karneval" sowie Hymnen und sakrale Werke. Seinen Ruhestand verbrachte er in Wolkersdorf, wo er als Chormeister den Gesangsverein Wolkersdorf und als Dirigent das Hausorchester leitete und sich besonders mit dem Singspiel auseinandersetzte. So vertonte er etwa Ludwig Anzengrubers "G'wissenswurm" und zahlreiche andere Texte. Der Stadtgemeinde Wolkersdorf ist der Hinweis auf einige weitere Details aus seinem Leben zu danken, etwa auf das heute in und um Wolkersdorf noch bekannte Weihnachtsspiel "Christkindlein kommt" mit Text von Ernestine Berger und auf das Weihelied "Zu Euch Ihr Brüder", das Schneider anläßlich der Enthüllung des Kriegerdenkmals 1923 gleichfalls zu einem Text von Ernestine Berger, der Tochter des langjährigen Bürgermeisters Josef Berger, schuf. - Nach seinem Tode im Jahr 1940 geriet sein Werk kriegsbedingt in Vergessenheit, der hier vorliegende Bestand gestattet somit zumindest eine Übersicht über sein eigenes Schaffen wie über die Musik, mit der er sich im Rahmen seiner Tätigkeit als Kapellmeister und Musiker beschäftigte. Einige seiner Werke wurden von Josef Pleil für das Bläserquintett "Brass for Fun" arrangiert und seither regelmäßig aufgeführt. Die Stadtgemeinde Wolkersdorf benannte ihm zum Gedenken 1976 die verlängerte Krexnerstraße nach ihm. - Detaillierte Verlistung auf Anfrage.

        The Anthropometry of the American Negro

      New York: Columbia University Press. 1930. First. First edition. 280pp. Boards a little bowed else fine, without dustwrapper, probably as issued. Inscribed by the author: "For Professor H. Labouret with the compliments and kind regards of Melville J. Herskovits." Extensive scholarly study and explication of the physical characteristics of the American Negro. Herskovits was a world-renowned black anthropologist whose studies were instrumental in defining African-Americans as they perceive themselves today. He quantified the intermingling of African-Americans with other races and discovered African influences in what had been considered completely assimilated groups of African-Americans. Among many other things, he founded the first university program for African studies in the United States, contributed the essay "The Negro's Americanism" to Alain Locke's The New Negro, and was Katherine Dunham's mentor when she studied anthropology. A scarce book. .
