        Original pen-and-ink drawing, "Fascism"

      1938. Grunbaum (1909-2009) was born in Seattle and graduated with a degree in fine arts from the University of Washington. After a brief engagement as a WPA art instructor, he moved to New York City, where he participated in numerous exhibitions of politically-engaged art throughout the Thirties and Forties, as well as serving on the editorial board of the left-wing art journal Art Front. His later career was spent as an art director for various mainstream publications, including The New Republic and Scientific American, but he continued to exhibit work at least through the 1960's. He experimented with both social-realist and surrealist techniques, and the current work clearly draws inspiration from both. A few of the highlights have been touched up with white ink, as if for publication, but we have not discovered a published example of this drawing. Pen-and-ink on heavy composition paper, sheet size 17-1/2" x 22" (ca 45cm x 56cm), with ca. 2" margins on all sides. Slight mat burn; small tear into lower edge (far from image); light soil, still fine and bright. Titled and signed in pencil below image area; also signed and dated in ink, lower right. A large, expertly-rendered composition.

        JEAN DUFY. Othon Friesz. als.

      Plaza Hotel / Perls Galleries, n.d. 1938., New York - 4 page, 5" x 8 3/4" folded exhibition promotional catalogue printed in black & white on stiff semi-gloss paper stock. With the original Othon Friesz autograph manuscript used as text for the introduction of the catalogue of the Jean Dufy exhibition held at the Perls Galleries. Written in French on The Plaza Hotel, New York, stationery, 1938, 1 page, about 6 by 8 inches, in very good plus condition. The manuscript in Friesz's hand is not signed but credited in the catalogue in which the introduction by Friesz has been translated into English. Friesz writes: "An Exhibition of Jean Dufy's works coincides with my sojourn in New York. I am happy to see the sparkling and witty canvases of our "little" Jean so fortunately placed here. It has been said too often, and erroneously, that he imitates his big brother Raoul. Surely, he directly stems from him. He absorbed the color technique of his elder brother, as well as the expressive and spontaneous form of statement which he uses with savor to express his very personal emotions. But to see him as any servile imitation of Raoul Dufy would be a serious blunder. In the case of brothers so closely united within their family and their lives - was not Jean the best draftsman in his brother' s atelier? - it would be almost strange that they should not resemble each other. Instead of deploring the resemblances, one should rather see in the case of the brothers Dufy a situation paralleling that of the brothers Le Nain". Othon Friesz was one the most important painters at the start of the twentieth century; one of the founders & leading painters of Fauvism from Le Havre, along with George Braque & Raoul Dufy. During his early years of painting before & in the Fauve style, he often painted & exhibited with Henri Matisse, Albert Marquet, Henri Manguin, Jean Puy, Andre Derain, Maurice Vlaminck and others. He remained a life long friend of Raoul Dufy, both of whom were born & learned art in Le Havre. A lovely item. Original artist autograph manuscripts like Friesz are extremely scarce & seldom come on the market. This one is enhanced because it discusses one great artist's impressions of another. [Some glue mounting remains on the verso of the catalogue otherwise fine] [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy]

The author's exceptionally rare first book, a collection of short pieces from his days as a reporter for the New York World-Telegram, the New York Herald Tribune and The New Yorker. Anecdotally it has been said that Mitchell would not allow this book to be reprinted in his lifetime because of some racial characterizations that are now considered inappropriate. This may be the case but Mitchell's writing, while never precious, could hardly be considered insensitive. We have seen only a handful of jacketed copies in thirty years of searching. .

        THE DRAWINGS OF THE FLORENTINE PAINTERS (Complete in Three Volumes) Amplified Edition

      Chicago: The University of Chicago Press. Near Fine in Very Good dust jacket. 1938. First Edition Thus. 1. Hard Cover. The Amplified Edition, complete in three volumes. Publisher's full, bright blue cloth with gilt lettering on spine. Copiously illustrated with hundreds of B&W reproductions. Volume 1: Text. xiv, 367 pp. Volume 2: Catalogue. Xii, 388 pp. Volume 3: Illustrations. Approximately 400+ pp. Bernard Berenson (1865 - 1959) was an American art historian specializing in the Renaissance. He was a major figure in establishing the market for paintings by the Old Masters. This work, The Drawings of the Florentine Painters, is considered his masterpiece. Among U. S. Collectors of the early 1900s, Berenson was regarded as the pre-eminent authority on Renaissance art. His verdict of authenticity increased a painting's value. While his approach remained controversial among European art historians and connoisseurs, he played a pivotal role as an advisor to several important American art collectors, such as Isabella Stewart Gardner, who needed help in navigating the complex and treacherous market of newly fashionable Renaissance art. In this respect Berenson's influence was enormous, while his 5% commission made him a wealthy man. Starting with his The Venetian Painters of the Renaissance with an Index to their Works (1894) his mix of connoisseurship and systematic approach proved immensely successful. In 1895 his Lorenzo Lotto, an Essay on Constructive Art Criticism won wide critical acclaim. It was quickly followed by The Florentine Painters of the Renaissance (1896) that was lauded by William James for its innovative application of "elementary psychological categories to the interpretation of higher art". In 1897 Berenson added another work to his series of scholarly yet handy guides publishing The Central Italian Painters of the Renaissance. After that he devoted six years of pioneering work to what is widely regarded as his deepest and most substantial book, The Drawings of the Florentine Painters, which was published in 1903. In 1907 he published his The North Italian Painters of the Renaissance, where he expressed a devastating and still controversial judgment of Mannerist art, which may be related to his love for Classicism and his professed distaste for Modern Art. His early works were later integrated in his most famous book, The Italian Painters of the Renaissance (1930) which was widely translated and reprinted. He also published two volumes of journals, Rumor and Reflection and Sunset and Twilight. He is also the author of Aesthetics and History and Sketch for a Self-portrait. His beautiful residence in Fiesole near Florence, which he named I Tatti, is now the Harvard Center for Renaissance Studies. It houses his art collection and his personal library of books on art history and humanism, which Berenson regarded as his most enduring legacy. Berenson's works include: * Venetian Painters of the Renaissance (1894) * Lorenzo Lotto: An Essay in Constructive Art Criticism (1895) * Florentine Painters of the Renaissance (1896) * Central Italian Painters of the Renaissance (1897) * The Sense of Quality: Study and Criticism of Italian Art (1901; second series, 1902) * The Drawings of the Florentine Painters (1903) his masterpiece* North Italian Painters of the Renaissance (1907) * A Sienese Painter of the Franciscan Legend (1910) * Venetian Painting in America: The Fifteenth Century (New York, 1916) * Essays in the Study of Sienese Painting (New York, 1918) * The Italian Painters of the Renaissance (1930) * Sketch for a Self-Portrait (1949) * Rumor and Reflection (1952) * The Passionate Sightseer (1960) * Sunset and Twilight: Diaries 1947-1958 (1963) .

Folio - over 12" - 15" tall. xiv, 367; xii, 388 pp .
