Mid-Century Beach Resort Oil Painting
This is a wonderful original oil on canvas painting of a day at the French seaside. Signed R. DeGoul, this playful painting has hints of Cezanne in the upper right corner view of the town. The suns light and shadows pour down on this lovely scene in wonderful cubist rays. The ocean is rendered with Seurat like Pointillist dabs of color. The lighthouse guards the bay from any danger and the fishing boats are all on shore, while the recreational sailboats bob and float on the days calm waters. A true delight!Read more
Tewa Plaza at first Mesa
An oil on canvas painting executed in bright, lush reds, blues, pinks and peach depicting the Tewa Plaza by Santa Fe artist Dan Namingha. Signed lower left corner, “Namingha, 1985”. Provenance: Purchased in 1985 from The Gallery Wall; Private Collection, CA. Dan Namingha studied at the Institute of American Indian Arts in Sante Fe, New Mexico and later went on to continue his studies in Chicago, Illinois. During Namingha's time at the American Academy of Art in Chicago, he was influenced by the artwork of Jackson Pollack, Adolph Gottlieb, Michelangelo, Vincent Van Gogh, and Norman Rockwell. Namingha has been a painter and a sculptor for the last 40 years. Namingha paints and sculpts images of his homeland, and the Hopi people. His complex heritage serves as a key inspiration for Namingha. Painting from before dawn to long after sunset, Namingha constantly challenges himself to try new styles, representation, abstraction, and minimalism. His subject matter has always been intimately linked to spiritual beliefs of the Hopi culture. He incorporates elements of Pueblo symbolism and beliefs about time and space in a Contemporary minimalist manner. Color and symbolism are important in Hopi tradition and culture. Circles, Squares, Dark Semi Circles, and Bold Lines represent the sun, moon, horizon, corn, and nighttime. The four colors of corn are associated with the four cardinal directions, the seasons, and the cycles of life. Namingha also works in mixed media, as seen in some of his work where he combines textured and colored paper and paint. The color "black" symbolizes "above", the upper world, and all colors represent "below", the lower world.Read more
Short time left!
14" Queen Anne Doll w/ Glass Eyes.
An admirable example of a Queen Anne doll, circa early 1800's, that Ms Jinkins had purchased in the early 1960's. Having won a first place ribbon, 1965-66, from a display at the Washington D.C. Dollology Club, Ms Jinkins proudly displayed this doll in a shadow box frame on the living room wall for over fifty years! Just recently her son, whom still lives in the family house, decided to downsize and felt that after his sister, Ms Cooper, had sold most of her mother's dolls this past December at Morphy's that the time was right to pass on this family treasure. For the most part the facial painting is original, black light inspection reveals a bit of touch up under the chin and around the nose. There might be some minimal enhancement to the rouge cheek area? Ms Jinkins was an accomplished seamstress according to her daughter and most likely she costumed this doll in an appropriately styled outfit. Lower arms and lower legs also appear to have repaint to their wooden parts and although there is some touch-up to the finish she is predominately in what appears to be original/period paint. Overall quite a nice package and fresh to the market after 50+ years!Read more

Three Burmese Buddhist Kammawasa Manuscripts, 19th C
Four beautifully detailed, red and gold lacquered sheets of Burmese Buddhist manuscripts describing rules of ceremony. Kammawasa are elaborately decorated manuscripts extracted from the Pali Vinaya pitaka, the monastic code of discipline which is generally read aloud at monastic assemblies. Topics covered would include formalities for the ordination of monks and the bestowal of their robes, the consecration of an ordination hall, celebrating the festival of the full moon, and other such ceremonies. Kammawasa may be inscribed on palm leaf, ivory, copper, or even on pieces of discarded monks robes which have been lacquered to provide a rigid surface. The text is composed in the large Burmese square script, known as tamarind seed script and are stored in an elaborate lacquer box made specifically for that purpose (see our listing TBS16 for an example). All pages of this group are double sided, one side with script and the other with rich and highly complex scenes in gold lacquer. All sheets are in very good condition and date to the 19th C.
