quickly as possible. These are for guidance only, and all lots will be sold “as is” as per

for use at the sale. Once the first bid has been placed, the auctioneer asks for higher
bids in increments determined by the auctioneer. To place your bid, simply raise your

random gesture for a bid.

through a Freeman’s representative. Phone lines must be reserved in advance. Requests
must be submitted no later than 24 hours prior to the scheduled start of the sale.

or marine ivory. Such materials may require specific licenses, certificates, or CITES

in order to establish which species or genus the material came from. Freeman’s is
unable to provide this information, and the obligation is on the purchaser of a lot
containing any of these materials to ensure that they are able to obtain all the
necessary or required documents should they need to, prior to bidding on the lot.
If proper documentation or licenses etc. cannot be obtained for a purchased lot,
the purchaser will still be required to make an on time payment for the lot as per our
standard terms and conditions. Freeman’s cataloguing of the lots marked with this
symbol * represents the best of our opinion, and the absence of this symbol from any
lot description does not form a warranty that the lot will be free from any licensing
or certification restrictions.

These should be submitted in person, by mail or by fax no later than one hour prior
to the scheduled start of the sale. The auctioneer will bid on your behalf up to the limit.

F
reeman’s is pleased to present its first American Art and
Pennsylvania Impressionist auction of the year. The sale
includes works by many of this country’s most renowned and
influential artists.
Among the highlights is a charming scene by N. C. Wyeth,
patriarch of one of America’s most revered artistic dynasties.
Titled “After the Day’s Work,” this painting captures a blissful
slice of Americana, replete with white picket fence, playful
toddler, and a faithful canine companion as a happy family
is reunited under the full moon of early evening. Echoing last
December’s auction—Freeman’s most successful American
art sale to date—all three generations of the Wyeth family are
again represented, with works by Andrew and Jamie completing
the triumvirate.
While the Wyeths are often associated with Pennsylvania’s
Brandywine Valley and Maine, other regions of the United
States are also well-represented. The energy and glamor of
New York City are captured in several works, notably by Martin
Lewis and Everett Shinn.
Sincerely,
Alasdair Nichol, Vice Chairman | Head of Department

The American West has proved fertile territory for the imagination of many artists. This auction includes several, ranging from
Albert Bierstadt and Henry Farny from an earlier era, to contemporary artists Luke Frazier and Gerald Harvey.
Closer to home, Freeman’s has been for some time a market
leader in the field of Pennsylvania Impressionism, and is again
delighted to offer a fine group of works by preeminent members
of the school such as Edward Redfield, Fern Coppedge, George
Sotter and Walter Schofield. Other artists with strong ties to
Philadelphia are also represented. Two impressive and monumental double portraits of a prominent Philadelphia family of
the arts are rendered with great painterly brio by Cecilia Beaux,
while a classic double-sided beach scene by Martha Walter is
also sure to garner attention.
Wherever your interests in American art may lie, I very much
hope to see you during our exhibition and look forward to being
of assistance.

note:
The present print depicts New York City’s
glowing Chanin Building in the distance, which
had just been completed when Lewis executed
this work. It is still standing today at the corner
of 42nd Street and Lexington Avenue. The
foreground, replete with elements of modernity
and urban development, shows a woman
surrounded by hanging laundry, fire escapes, and
multiple apartment buildings. During his lifetime
and up to the present day, Lewis is recognized as
a master of printing techniques, particularly his
skillful portrayal of the light and dark contrast
between the illuminated and the obscured. Lewis
was awarded the Print Club of Philadelphia's
Charles M. Lea Prize for this print in 1930, and is
considered by some to be his most important
and iconic work.

MARKET SCENE, LAHORE
Signed and located ‘E.L. Weeks/
Lahore’ bottom left, oil on canvas
19 x 13 in. (48.3 x 33cm)
provenance:
Private Collection, Pennsylvania.
exhibited:
“Empire of India Exhibition”, Earl’s
Court, London S.W., 1895, no. 12,
(As “A Street in Lahore, with houses
of carved wood and the Dome of
the Golden Mosque”).
literature:
Empire of India Exhibition, 1895.
Catalogue and Description of Paintings
and Studies of Indian Life, by Mr. E. L.
Weeks, no. 12.
Edwin Lord Weeks, From the Black
Sea through Persia and India, London
and New York: 1895, pp. 178-181
and p. 183 (a similar street view in
Lahore appears on p. 163, labeled “A
Lahore Street-Morning”).
note:
Weeks entered Lahore, at the time
in the Punjab of greater India in
December of 1892 or January 1893,
after traveling through Persia in the
summer and fall of 1892. This was
his third and last expedition into
India, since 1882-83 and 1887, and
his first experience of the city of
Lahore (now in Pakistan). In his
book, From the Black Sea through
Persia and India, Weeks noted,
“There are two domed edifices
which may have been tombs or
fountains, but which now shelter
various rude thatched awnings
projecting from their eaves.”
(pp. 178-179). Weeks renders these
in glistening sunlight, being so
adept at sunshine and shadow.
Of special note are the carved
wooden superstructures above the
shop fronts lining the street. Of
these he wrote:
“[I]n its display of carved and
weather-beaten wood-work, of
balconies and jutting windows, each
house exhibiting the individual taste
and fancy of its designer, it is
probably unequaled in any city of
the East.” (p. 180)
“[The] wealth of old woodwork
becomes fairly prodigal; the side
streets ... give one the impression
that each house-holder has vied to
outdo his neighbor in throwing out
these crowded ranks of beautiful
windows, and in covering every inch
of wall with decoration...” (p. 181)
“Beyond the group of gilded
domes...The Jumma Musjid, or
Great Mosque rises beyond an
open desert space near the end of
this street.” (p. 183)
This sunny painting was executed
on site and, coincident with Weeks’
descriptions, features an above eyelevel view of the row of elaborately
carved wooden windows and
balconies rising above the roofs of
the street-level shops of various
kinds, the street itself densely
packed with tradesmen coming and
going. These figures, as with the
two men in the foreground, have
heads wrapped in a heavy regional
turban of cotton and wear a dhoti
(underlying white cotton tunic and
pants), with overcoats of white and
yellow cloth, or entire white clothing
as with the two figures marching
down the street on the extreme left.
As indicated in his section on
Lahore, Weeks gives us a view of
the golden domes of the mosque
seen arising from the rooftops. But
the focus of the painting is clearly
seen in his rendering of the detailed
fanciful ornamented, paneled and
bracketed woodwork of the houses
lining the street, jutting forth at
different depths. This woodwork
fascinated Weeks in Lahore and
Ahmedabad (farther south). In
another in situ painting of Lahore
shown at the Empire of India
Exhibition, the woodwork is also
painted and seen with nautch girls
peering from overhead from the
balconies. But the present painting
is a finely detailed rendering of the
architecture and commerce of a
Lahore street. Weeks greatly relied
on these in situ works for backdrops
to some of his major paintings,
executed in his Paris studio during
the 1890s upon his return from
India.
The present lot will be accompanied
by a letter of authenticity by Dr.
Ellen K. Morris. This painting will
also be included by Dr. Morris in the
Catalogue Raisonné. We thank Dr.
Morris for researching and writing
the preceding catalogue entry.

Both John F. Lewis Sr. (1860-1932)
and John F. Lewis Jr. (1899-1965)
served as President of the Board at
PAFA. Lewis, Sr. served from
February, 1908 through December,
1932, and Lewis, Jr. served from
February, 1949 through October,
1958. According to the 1974-1975
exhibition catalogue, Beaux served
as a member of the PAFA faculty
from 1895-1915, and was well
acquainted with the Lewis family at
the height of her Philadelphia career.
The present portrait, as well as the
double portrait of Mrs. Lewis and
son, (see lot 20) were executed over
a period of several years as
commissions (ca. 1908-1910). These
two double portraits are striking and
show the artist’s skill and style at
their zenith. Beaux’s excellent sense
of balance in color, composition, and
design are evident in both paintings,
bringing out the sitters’ emotions,
affectations, and relationships to
each other in an exceptional
manner.

ROBERT HENRI
(american 1865-1929)
“MANOLITA MAREQUIS”
Signed and dated ‘Robert Henri 1908’ bottom left; also inscribed with title
bottom right; and inscribed with artist, title, date and location ‘Madrid’ verso,
oil on canvas
31 7/8 x 26 1/4 in. (81 x 66.7cm)
provenance:
Private Collection, California.
note:
Robert Henri is best known as the most prominent and celebrated member
of the Ashcan School, whose artists differentiated themselves from the
American Impressionists by focusing on urban realism. Rather than depicting
idyllic landscapes in bright colors, Henri and other Ashcan artists such as
John Sloan, Everett Shinn, William Glackens and George Luks espoused the
notion of creating “art for life’s sake” rather than “art for art’s sake”. This
meant portraying urban people and settings, particularly New York’s streets,
restaurants, theatres, and lower class neighborhoods, often using gestural
brushstrokes in a predominately dark color palette.
Henri frequently traveled to Spain, particularly between 1900 and 1926.
During that time he painted a large and significant amount of works
depicting Spanish people and their everyday life. Henri’s portraits present a
dynamic and diverse range of the country’s society and include such figures
as dancers, street performers, bullfighters, peasants and gypsies, skillfully
capturing the spirit and essence of each individual.
In 2014 Telfair Museums in Savannah, Georgia organized a travelling
exhibition of Henri’s work entitled “Spanish Sojourns: Robert Henri and the
Spirit of Spain”. Before this exhibition, many of the works from his Spanish
oeuvre were lesser known than his others, primarily because so many are
owned privately, or were acquired by museums soon after they were made.
“Manolita Marequis” is an excellent example of a privately owned work that
embodies Henri’s fascination with Spanish subjects, including dancers. Her
striking red and black floral dress and vivid rose in her hair are matched only
by her commanding expression. An exotic beauty, her bold features
immediately demand the viewer’s attention and the dark background and
animated brushstrokes add to the painting’s appeal.

The present lot is similar to several other small-scale grisaille works that Hassam executed
(mostly on paper) during 1892-1893, which depict the buildings and environs of the World’s
Fair in Chicago during that time. These works were often populated with figures moving
around the grounds of the fair, as seen here. One such comparable work, “View at the
World’s Columbian Exposition”, is owned by the Terra Foundation for American Art in
Chicago, Illinois.
This lot will be included in Stuart P. Feld’s and Kathleen M. Burnside’s forthcoming

provenance:
Property of the Ira Greenhill Revocable Trust.
exhibited:
The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York, New York, n.d.
note:
Born in Brooklyn, New York, Pène du Bois studied under William Merritt
Chase at the New York School of Art, and later trained under realist artists
Robert Henri and Kenneth Hayes Miller. Throughout his career he worked as
an illustrator, editor, and critic for publications such as the New York
American and Arts and Decoration magazine. He exhibited his work
frequently and also became a teacher for both the Art Students League in
New York City, and later in Stonington, Connecticut, where he founded an
art school of his own.
Pène du Bois is most well known for his clever and often sardonic depictions
of New York society, developing his quintessential stylized figures which
highlight pretentiousness and duplicity behind many human encounters.
Famed art collector and art critic Duncan Phillips praised him as “an
irrepressible mocker of human absurdity and a clever satirist of types
familiar to our modern world.” Phillips also admired Pène du Bois’s keen
sense of color and “flair for good painting,” referring to the artist as “a
remarkably able draughtsman [...] There is a clearness and a resonance in
his pinks, blues, scarlets, and blacks.” The aforementioned color palette and
stylized figures are prominent in the present lot, which shows a number of
various social interactions occurring as small vignettes throughout the
composition. Of particular note is the woman in pink-the only female in the
painting-on whom most of the color is concentrated, and who immediately
draws the eye through her appearance of isolation and contemplation. Each
encounter seems to be a separate engagement unto itself. The title, "Locked
Jury", indicates a sense of disagreement and stalemate; the dark, almost
smoky appearance of the room adds to the somber, yet intense sentiment
exuding from the canvas.

HENRY F. FARNY

provenance:

grandson.

Wilson.
By descent in the family.
Private Collection, Virginia.
note:
Henry François Farny was
particularly well-known for
depicting Native American life in
the nineteenth century. President
Theodore Roosevelt was a great
admirer, and once stated to Farny:
“The Nation owes you a great debt.
It does not realize now, but it will
someday. You are preserving
phases of American history that
rapidly are passing away.”
Born in Alsace, France, Farny
immigrated to the United States at
the age of six, settling in Warren,
Pennsylvania, close to a Seneca
reservation. His friendly relationship
with the Seneca tribe had a deep
impact and marked the beginning
of his fascination with Native
American life.
As demonstrated in “Moving
Camp”, Farny is recognized for his
skilled use of color and
compositions drenched in daylight;
the asymmetrical arrangement is
characteristic of his finest work.
Farny’s oeuvre conveys his nostalgia
and desire to preserve the details of
the quickly vanishing tribes he
came to know. Yet, he depicts his
subject matter without any explicit
dramatization or romanticism,
choosing candid scenes of figures in
a natural, open landscape.

Wieghorst: “From the opening of the American West until this present day, artists have

our national heritage. None have been more successful than Olaf Wieghorst.” Today,
Cajon, California is home to the Olaf Wieghorst Museum.
The present painting, as well as lot 75, are featured in the film Olaf Wieghorst: Painter of

Impressionist (1875-1976)”, David
David Gallery, Philadelphia,
Pennsylvania, November 2December 3, 1977.
literature:
Antiques Magazine, November, 1977,
(illustrated).
note:
This exceptional double-sided
painting provides two excellent
examples of Martha Walter’s
quintessential beach scenes, both
rendered in her impressionistic style
and vivid palette. The vertical
orientation of “Under the
Boardwalk” is particularly rare, as
Walter executed the majority of her
landscape compositions in
horizontal format. Both images
feature the artist’s characteristic
figures at leisure, as mothers and
rosy-cheeked children relax on
blankets, their parasols blocking the
bright sun. The figures in the
foregrounds of both paintings wear
recognizable fashions of the period;
the compositions convey movement
and life. Walter painted the
background figures, particularly in
the horizontal work, in a swift,
gestural manner that adds vitality.
A student of William Merritt Chase
at the Pennsylvania Academy of the
Fine Arts in Philadelphia, Walter
went on to study at the renowned
Académie Julian in Paris, established
her own Paris studio and continued
to travel and paint passionately for
many decades. She received many
awards throughout her career and
lived to more than 100. Her work
has hung in the permanent
collections of the Musée d’Orsay in
Paris, the Art Institute of Chicago,
the Pennsylvania Academy, the
Detroit Institute of Arts, and the
Cincinnati Art Museum. At the time
of her death, Walter was
internationally acclaimed and
respected, and her work continues
to increase in popularity and value in
today’s art market.

By descent in the family.
Private Collection, Arizona.
note:
Edward Redfield and his family moved to the Belle Island Farm in Centre
Bridge in 1898, after which the surrounding landscape became the artist's
most frequently depicted subject for the remainder of his career. Redfield
maintained a studio in Point Pleasant, Pennsylvania, which is located close
to the Delaware River, off River Road, just north of the artist's home in
Centre Bridge. He executed numerous scenes of Point Pleasant, particularly
during the spring months, between 1920 and 1930. His familiarity with the
landscape, paired with his en-plein-air execution of the paintings, provide
an impressionistic, yet truthful, depiction of his beloved environs. These
scenes, including the present lot, abound with brightness and life; the vivid,
luminous colors of spring cover the canvas and invite the viewer into the
scene. “House in Point Pleasant” boasts an impeccable provenance, passing
directly from the artist through his family to the present owner.
The present painting will be included in the forthcoming Catalogue
Raisonné of Redfield’s work compiled by Dr. Thomas Folk.

Terms & Conditions
All property offered and sold (“property”) through Samuel T. Freeman & Co, (“Freeman’s”) shall be offered and sold on
the terms and conditions set forth below which constitutes the complete statement of the terms and conditions on which
all property is offered for sale. By bidding at the auction, whether present in person or by agent, by written bid, telephone,
internet or other means, the buyer agrees to be bound by these terms and conditions.
1
Unless otherwise indicated,
all Property will be offered by
Freeman’s as agent for the
Consignor.
2
Freeman’s reserves the right to
vary the terms of sale and any such
variance shall become part of these
Conditions of Sale.
3
Buyer acknowledges that it had
the right to make a full inspection
of all Property prior to sale to
determine the condition, size, repair
or restoration of any Property.
Therefore, all property is sold “ASIS”. Freeman’s is acting solely as an
auction broker, and unless otherwise
stated, does not own the Property
offered for sale and has made no
independent investigation of the
Property. Freeman’s makes no
warranty of title, merchantability or
fitness for a particular purpose, or
any other warranty or representation
regarding the description,
genuineness, attribution, provenance
or condition to the Property of any
kind or nature with respect to the
Property.
4
Freeman’s in its sole and exclusive
discretion, reserves the right to
withdraw any property, at any time,
before the fall of the hammer.
5
Unless otherwise announced by
the auctioneer at the time of sale,
all bids are per lot as numbered in
the printed catalogue. Freeman’s
reserves the right to determine any
and all matters regarding the order,
precedence or appropriate increment
of bids or the constitution of lots.
6
The highest bidder acknowledged
by the auctioneer shall be the buyer.
The auctioneer has the right to reject
any bid, to advance the bidding
at his absolute discretion and in
the event of any dispute between
bidders, the auctioneer shall have
the sole and final discretion either
to determine the successful bidder
or to re- offer and resell the article
in dispute. If any dispute arises after
sale, the Freeman’s sale record shall
be conclusive in all respects.
7
If the auctioneer determines that any
opening or later bid or any advance
bid is not commensurate with the
value of the Property offered, he may
reject the same and withdraw the
Property from sale.
8
Upon the fall of the hammer,
title to any offered lot or article
will immediately pass to the
highest bidder as determined in
the exclusive discretion of the
auctioneer, subject to compliance
by the buyer with these Conditions
of Sale. Buyer thereupon assumes
full risk and responsibility of the
property sold, agrees to sign any
requested confirmation of purchase,
and agrees to pay the full price, plus
Buyer’s Premium, therefore or such
part, upon such terms as Freeman’s
may require.
9
No lot may be removed from
Freeman’s premises until the buyer
has paid in full the purchase price
therefor including Buyer’s Premium
or has satisfied such terms that
Freeman’s, in its sole discretion,
shall require. Subject to the
foregoing, all Property shall be paid
for and removed by the buyer at
his/her expense within ten (10)
days of sale and, if not so removed,
may be sold by Freeman’s, or sent
by Freeman’s to a public warehouse,
at the sole risk and charge of the
buyer(s), and Freeman’s may
prohibit the buyer from
participating, directly or indirectly,
as a bidder or buyer in any future
sale or sales. In addition to other
remedies available to Freeman’s by
law, Freeman’s reserves the right to
impose a late charge of 1.5% per
month of the total purchase price on
any balance remaining ten (10) days
after the day of sale. If Property is
not removed by the buyer within ten
(10) days, a handling charge of 1%
of the total purchase price per
month from the tenth day after the
sale until removal by the buyer shall
be payable to Freeman’s by the
buyer; Freeman’s shall charge 1.5%
of the total purchase price per
month for any property not so
removed within 60 days after the
sale. Freeman’s will not be
responsible for any loss, damage,
theft, or otherwise responsible for
any goods left in Freeman’s
possession after ten (10) days. If the
foregoing conditions or any
applicable provisions of law are not
complied with, in addition to other
remedies available to Freeman’s and
the Consignor (including without
limitation the right to hold the
buyer(s) liable for the bid price)
Freeman’s, at its option, may either
cancel the sale, retaining as
liquidated damages all payments
made by the buyer(s), or resell the
property. In such event, the buyer(s)
shall remain liable for any deficiency
in the original purchase price and
will also be responsible for all costs,
including warehousing, the expense
of the ultimate sale, and Freeman’s
commission at its regular rates
together with all related and
incidental charges, including legal
fees. Payment is a precondition to
removal. Payment shall be by cash,
certified check or similar bank draft,
or any other method approved by
Freeman’s. Checks will not be
deemed to constitute payment until
cleared. Any exceptions must be
made upon Freeman’s written
approval of credit prior to sale. In
addition, a defaulting buyer will be
deemed to have granted and
assigned to Freeman’s, a continuing
security interest of first priority in
any property or money of, or owing
to such buyer in Freeman’s
possession, and Freeman’s may
retain and apply such property or
money as collateral security for the
obligations due to Freeman’s.
Freeman’s shall have all of the rights
accorded a secured party under the
Pennsylvania Uniform Commercial
Code.
10
Unless the sale is advertised and
announced as “without reserve”,
each lot is offered subject to
a reserve and Freeman’s may
implement such reserves by
bidding through its representatives
on behalf of the Consignors. In
certain instances, the Consignor
may pay less than the standard
commission rate where Freeman’s
or its representative is a successful
bidder on behalf of the Consignor.
Where the Consignor is indebted to
Freeman’s, Freeman’s may have an
interest in the offered lots and the
proceeds therefrom, other than the
broker’s Commissions, and all sales
are subject to any such interest.
11
No “buy” bids shall be accepted at
any time for any purpose.
12
Any pre-sale bids must be submitted
in writing to Freeman’s prior to
commencement of the offer of the
first lot of any sale. Freeman’s copy
of any such bid shall conclusively be
deemed to be the sole evidence of
same, and while Freeman’s accepts
these bids for the convenience of
bidders not present at the auction,
Freeman’s shall not be responsible
for the failure to execute, or, to
execute properly, any pre-sale bid.
13
A Buyer’s Premium will be added
to the successful bid price and is
payable by the buyer as part of the
total purchase price. The Buyer’s
Premium shall be: 25% on the first
$200,000 of the hammer price of
each lot, 20% on the portion from
$200,001 through $3,000,000, and
12% thereafter.
14
Unless exempted by law from
the payment thereof, the buyer
