Edward hopper
One of the great American realist painters, Edward Hopper studied with the great Robert Henri of the Ash Can School at the New York School of Art. The exquisite charcoal drawing on paper, Cherry tree, was owned by the Reverend and Mrs. Arthayer R. Sanborn, who resided at Hopper’s birthplace in Nyack, New York (est. $ 60,000-90,000).

Carl Clemens Moritz Rungius (1869-1959), A Cowboy’s Mount, 1920, oil on canvas, 19 x 20 1/2 inches. East. $ 20,000-40,000. Lot 86.

Carl Rungius
Carl Clemens Moritz Rungius’ A cowboy mount is a prime example of the artist’s anatomically accurate representations of the wildlife of the American West. Rungius’ highly fictionalized works show rugged and untouched wildlife in nature, which is now part of the American visual vocabulary. In A cowboy mount we see Rungius’ excellent design and superb use of color, effortlessly deployed to depict a relaxed view of a horse against a backdrop of cool greens (est. $ 20,000- $ 40,000).

Edmund Osthaus
German immigrant Edmund Henry Osthaus was director of the Academy of Fine Arts in Toledo before leaving to pursue his two passions: painting and training hunting dogs. Founder of the National Field Trial Association, Osthaus painted portraits of the first thirty years of competition winning dogs. A sublime work on canvas, Spaniel hunter is a sublime example of Osthaus’ skillful rendering of sport dogs (est. 25,000-35,000).

Antonio jacobsen
Creating more than 6,000 portraits of sailing and steamboats, Antonio Jacobsen is one of America’s most revered maritime artists. Painted in 1899, the Camanche was, during a period following the Civil War, the only heavy-duty naval warship stationed on the Pacific coast (estimated between $ 10,000 and $ 15,000).

Joseph henry sharp
Joseph Henry Sharp (American, 1859-1953) is known for his sympathetic views on the Native Americans of the Great Plains and further west. Born in Bridgeport Ohio, he studied in Munich and Paris. He traveled the American West and ended up settling in Taos Pueblo. In 1915, he and a number of other artists, including Eanger Irving Couse, also pictured in the sale, formed the Taos Society of Artist. Sharp’s intimate view near the artist’s studio makes it easy to understand why these painters would be drawn to the region with its expanding vistas and abundant flora (est. $ 10,000 to $ 15,000).

Edmund Henry Osthaus (1858-1928), Hunter with Spaniels, oil on canvas, 36 x 24 inches. East. $ 25,000 to $ 35,000. Lot 84.

Frank Henry Shapleigh
Frank Henry Shapleigh was born in Boston in 1842. He received his first artistic training at the Lowell Institute of Drawing, which offered free education. He continued his training in Paris, where he studied with the painter from Barbazon Emile Laminet. Perhaps it was Laminet who introduced Shapleigh to the genre of barnyard and rural scene painting, which would constitute a large part of his work. The Old Grain Mill, Limington, Maine, is painted with a frankness and frankness that reflects Shapleigh’s way of working in the open air. As in many of the artist’s evocations of American country life, the overall effect of the painting is one of calm and perhaps nostalgic longing (estimated at $ 6,000 to $ 9,000).
