        Archive of photographs from the personal files of LIFE photographer Dimitri Kessel

      v.p., 1960. Approx. 500 gelatin silver prints and some color prints, many SIGNED by Kessel and captioned in his or another hand. Contents generally very good or better. A comprehensive, career-spanning archive of the great Ukrainian-born photojournalist Dimitri Kessel (1902-1995), in all, some 500 unique photographs. During his 60-year career, Kessel worked as an industrial photographer, a war correspondent and combat photographer, and a photo essayist for LIFE. During World War II, he sailed on convoy escorts in the North Atlantic, covered the landing of American troops in the Aleutian Islands and the British landing in Greece. He also photographed the Greek civil war. In later years, Kessel lived on the Yangtze River in China for seven months while producing a photo essay for LIFE. He photographed the Andes Mountains in South America and mining operations in Central Africa. Kessel is world famous for the fidelity of his camera recreations of great art, but was also a tough and adventurous news photographer. Comprises: 1: Collection of approx. 400 photos from Kessel's personal files, the majority showing Kessel at work or relaxing with his LIFE co-workers, most ca. 1940s-1960s. Many captioned on front or rear, mounting stains. Locations include Guantanamo, Cuba; Birminham, AL (with Joe Scherschel); Maine; Central America; Cairo; Bangcock. Collegues pictured include Frank Capa, Ed Thompson, Gijon Mili, and Alfred Eisenstaedt. A fascinating record of the ever-smiling Kessel at work and play. 2: Three photographs of a nude model for lingerie ad. Gelatin silver prints. 10-3/16 x 7-15/16 inches, New York: [1934]. Very good. Faint creasing at corners. Docketed on verso in pencil. Three photographs, taken by an unknown photographer, of Dimitri Kessel at work on his first commercial assignment. 3: Photograph of John Hersey on the Yangtze River [With:] two photographs, one of Hersey alone, one of Hersey and Kessel. Gelatin silver print. 9-1/2 x 7-11/16 inches, [China]: [1946]. Some faint creasing to top corners. Docketed on verso; date stamped "Mar 12 1946". Kessel and Hersey were on assignment together in China for LIFE in 1946. Kessel devotes an entire chapter of his memoirs to his time on the Yangtze: "When I checked in, John Hersey, then a contract writer for LIFE, was there. He had been assigned to do a text piece on a farming village called Red Pepper [ ... ] John suggested that I accompany him to the village, only about forty miles outside Peking, to make photographs to illustrate his piece. I said, fine, if he would accompany me to the Yangtze to do the text to go with my pictures. New York thought it was a great idea" (Kessel, On Assignment, p. 149). The previous summer THE NEW YORKER dedicated an entire issue to Hersey's HIROSHIMA. His novel, A SINGLE PEBBLE, about an engineer searching for a dam site on the Yangtze, would be based on his time on the river with Kessel. 4: [KESSEL, Dimitri?].

        Signed and Inscribed Original Ink Sketch

      This Danish-born American artist grew so enamored with the American West, having worked ranches and even chased Pancho Villa back across the border, that he became a modern recreation of Frederic Remington, painting Western scenes and illustrating Western books, calendars and magazines. Original blue ballpoint signed and inscribed sketch, 1p, 10" X 5", n.p. [Phoeniz, AZ], 1960 March 5. Near fine. On heavy lined stock, Wieghorst sketches a Southwestern-style small adobe house with a covered porch, large chimney, separate small oven in front, fence and tree at left. A man in large sombrero squats in the shade of the porch, his horse resting nearby. Along the bottom, the artist writes: "To The Campbells with many thanks for a lovely party. / Mae & Olaf Wieghorst / Match 5th / 1960." Several others (doubtless fellow party attendees) sign the verso with various February and March 1960 dates and add comments. An outstanding example of this famed 20th century artist's work.

        Dintorni di Rovereto.

      1960 - Nato a Pirano d’Istria nel 1893, da Vittorio e Maria Chierego, ed arrivato a Rovereto nel 1939. Assolse a Pirano le scuole elementari ed a Trieste gli studi superiori. Nel 1919 congedato riprese lo studio e nel 1921 ottiene la licenza con il massimo dei voti e la lode presso l’Accademia delle Belle Arti di Venezia nel Corso Biennale di Ornato e Decorazione sotto la guida di Augusto Sezanne e quello di Incisione diretto dal professor Emanuele Brugnoli. Abilitato all’insegnamento del disegno per le scuole medie e superiori dello Stato, è stato cavaliere al merito della Repubblica Italiana, membro del Curatorio della Pinacoteca roveretana, Consigliere del Museo storico della Guerra, del Museo futurista "Fortunato Depero" nonché membro dell’Accademia degli Agiati di Rovereto. Ha ultimato la sua carriera scolastica come Preside nel 1963 presso la Scuola Statale di Avv. Industriale dove per sette anni ha insegnato disegno tecnico ed ornamentale.\rA Katzenau (località a nord-ovest di Linz nell’Alta Austria), dove è stato internato durante la guerra 1915/1918, aveva insegnato con mezzi di fortuna ai ragazzi esuli trentini e lì fu amato e ben voluto da tutti per la sua umanità e semplicità. Rappresentativi sono i disegni, perlopiù in bianco e nero, a testimonianza del periodo di internamento.\rAll’Accademia di Belle Arti di Venezia il suo modello fu Cort e Cezanne. Conosciuto ed apprezzato come acquerellista, in pochi conoscono quale sia stata all’inizio la vera passione di Piero Coelli.\rPortato all’architettura sacra, aveva disegnato e progettato altari, colonnati, volte di chiese, visi d’angelo e soffitti (1920/1921). Cominciò la sua carriera artistica partecipando nel 1921 all’Esposizione Nazionale di Padova e nel 1922 alla Mostra di Ca’ Pesaro a Venezia.\rA Rovereto, città da lui amatissima, trovò ispirazione per molti dei suoi lavori. Oltre a questi veniva richiesta la sua opera per pergamene personalizzate destinate a notabili roveretani, bozzetti per il Museo della Guerra, cartoline per la Campana dei Caduti, medaglie, busti e copertine per riviste locali e nazionali. Chi non lo ricorda col suo gabellino e cassettina lungo l’Adige, da Borgo Sacco ad Aldeno e nei vari luoghi di Rovereto. Non solo la città della quercia ha ispirato la sua creatività. ma Coelli ha dipinto in diverse città italiane e estere tra le quali Parigi (importanti sono le sue testimonianze riguardanti i lavori da lui eseguiti, raffiguranti i monumenti principali della capitale francese, su tutti il grande acquarello dedicato al Moulin Rouge). Piero Coelli morì a Rovereto il 31 agosto del 1980 all’età di 87 anni. Firmato in basso a destra.\rNotizie tratte da www.pierocoelli.it Formato: Acquarello su carta di cm 43x130 e con cornice di cm 56x44 Buono.
