COLLECTORS & COLLECTIONS

1. [Brummer] The Notable Art Collection Belonging to the Estate of the Late Joseph Brummer [and] Classical and Medieval Stone Sculptures, including pieces suitable for Garden and Patio, Furniture & Works of Art -Joseph Brummer Collection. New York; Parke-Bernet Galleries: April 20-23rd, May 11-14th, and June 8-9th, 1949. Joseph Brummer was a giant in the field of art collecting in the first half of the 20th century. A sculptor who had trained under Rodin, he subsequently opened art galleries in Paris and New York and advised such important collectors as Henry Walters, William Randolph Hearst and Bradley Martin. He was one of the experts involved in the founding of The Cloisters, and his gallery exhibitions brought the works of Seurat, Derain and other modern artists to America. The Brummer Gallery was always packed with Gothic, Renaissance and ancient art and antiques, and so were these auctions. Romanesque, Gothic and Renaissance sculpture, enamels, tapestries, ivories, bronzes, silver, furniture, jewelry and maiolica, and Egyptian, Roman, Greek, Persian, Byzantine and early Christian antiquities are all here in abundance. These three auctions were Parke-Bernet's "big sale of the 1948-9 season", and the accuracy of Leslie Hyam's cataloging of the collection "astounded most of the experts" (Towner, "The Elegant Auctioneers"). A magnificent and important collection and sale. 3 vols. Softcover. 7"x10", 247 pages, 841 lots; 245 pages, 888 lots; [and] 6.5"x9.5", 167 pages, 674 lots; all with b/w illustrations; light wear, a little soil, several small institutional stamps.

Crane, on the premises of Castle Hill at Ipswich, Mass.  New York; Parke-Bernet Galleries: June 29-July 1st, 1950. Sale 1175. To call "Castle Hill" and its contents magnificent would be damning it with faint praise. The 59-room Stuart-style mansion adjacent to Crane's beach has been preserved as an historic site and is today open to the public. It has been re-furnished with antiques, but what we have here are the original furnishings, as the Crane family collected them. Softcover. 7"x10", 225 pages, 1032 lots, b/w illustrations; light wear; several light institutional stamps. [07484] $25.00

The modern artists represented are largely French, and although a large portion of the collection is devoted to Corot, there are also fine works by Degas, Manet, Daumier, some nice Renoirs including "La Pensee", "Jeune Femme" and "Cafe-Concert" (now in the National Gallery as "La Première Sortie" (all 3 illustrated); the second volume contains watercolors, pastels and bronzes.

Original card covers with colored coats of arms; covers scuffed and soiled; some cover chipping on the spines; the spine of Volume 1 (a thick, heavy volume) has split internally and is very fragile. Endpapers with some spotting and discoloration; there is some toning to the page edges and a little internal spotting, but overall a very attractive set internally. If the set is to be used in any manner it should be bound into hardcovers with the original card covers preserved, as a set this heavy was never meant to be bound in softcovers for any length of time. [00815] $300.00

A tiny note at the front disclaims Sotheby's responsibility for the condition of everything, which may be either a standard weaseling-out clause or an indication that she threw things. An interesting sale which proves, if nothing else, that even the coolest, most elegant fashionistas can fall victim to occasional lapses in taste. Softcover. 8"x10.5", 45 pages, b/w illustrations; light wear. [05303] $20.00

13. [Seney] Catalogue of Mr. George I. Seney's Important Collection of Modern Paintings to be sold by auction, absolutely without reserve... New York; American Art Association; February 11th-13th, 1891. George Seney was, directly and indirectly, one of the moving forces in the formation of the American auction. In 1885 he had been President of the Metropolitan Bank and a well-heeled art collector who fell upon hard times when it turned out he had been using bank money to speculate on the railroads. The bankruptcy court moved in and ordered Seney's enormous art collection to be liquidated, and it was, in the first real "blockbuster" auction sale in America, run by Thomas Kirby and the American Art Association, the firm which eventually became Parke-Bernet. After the 1885 sale Seney's paintings were gone, but he had retained some "worthless" railroad stock which turned out to be not so worthless after all, and within a few years he was a well-heeled art collector once more. This 1891 auction represents paintings by foreign and American artists, including George Inness, Eastman Johnson, John La Farge, and many others. The catalog to Seney's 1885 sale also sometimes appears on the market, and we would be happy to attempt to find a copy for anyone wishing to acquire one. Hardcover. 5"x7.5", 293 pages, 307 lots; bound in period quarter red leather with marbled boards; spine with raised bands, gilt title and gilt emblems; marbled endpapers; covers scuffed and worn, front hinge crudely reglued; front endpaper detached but present; light internal soil, a few page tips chipped.

The magnificent bequests of American furniture and paintings he and his wife made to Boston's Museum of Fine Arts earned them a place in the pantheon of Boston's patrons of the arts, and their rediscovery and championing of the works of Fitz Hugh Lane and Martin Johnson Heade, along with 19th century American fine and folk artists earned them a place in American collecting lore. The Karoliks deflected such honors, and in an open letter to the MFA's Director, Maxim Karolik declared "We are not 'Patrons of Art' or 'Public Benefactors.' We refuse to accept these banal labels. We accept with pleasure only one label: 'Useful'." Amazingly, even after he gave three collections to the MFA, there was plenty left over, which was auctioned in this sale.
