#700 - Jonas Lie (American, 1880-1940) Manhattan

Sgn. Lower right, Jonas Lie. Oil/canvas.

Jonas Lie was a Norwegian-born artist who received great acclaim for his luminous renderings of New York City. Influenced by Monets use of color and light, his unique merging of Impressionism, with a bold, painterly realism, was admired for its potency and vigor. In 1905, three of Lies works were exhibited at the Pennsylvania Academy in the company of fellow artists Winslow Homer, Thomas Eakins, William Merritt Chase, and Mary Cassatt. Lie was also actively involved in mounting the famous 1913 Armory Show, where four of his own paintings were shown. Lie was quoted as saying, Art is not an emotional expression; it is a controlled expression of an emotion.

This painting of Manhattan, by Jonas Lie, by descent of Emily Sibley Watson, founder of The Memorial Art Gallery in Rochester, NY. She was the daughter and daughter-in-law of Western Union co-founders Hiram Sibley & Don Alonzo Watson. Emily was fortunate enough to sail the world with her husband, James Sibley Watson, and amass an extensive collection of art.

Condition: Excellent, original untouched condition and frame. Areas of craquelure.

Dimensions: 36" x 42"

Provenance: Sibley-Watson Estate.

Estimate: $50,000 - $80,000

Price Realized: $126,500 - See more at: http://www.cottoneauctions.com/displayItem.php?displayItem_id=8998#sthash.FokuBzSR.dpuf

GENESEO, N.Y. A bold original gouache painting by the renowned American artist Alexander Calder (1898-1976), titled Loops Filled In, signed lower right and dated (1972), measuring 23 inches by 31 inches, sold for $78,200 at the annual Winter Fine Art & Antiques Auction held March 29th by Cottone Auctions, in the firms gallery located at 120 Court Street in Geneseo.

The painting was one of two artworks that brought identical selling prices. The other was a color linocut on Arches paper by Pablo Picasso (Sp., 1881-1973), titled Faunes et Chevre. The work was numbered in pencil lower left (26/50) and on the reverse. Like the Calder, it also fetched $78,200. In all, just under 500 lots came up for bid in an auction that grossed about $1.5 million.

It was a busy day for Cottone Auctions staff, which had to tend to a packed house of around 250 people in the gallery, as well as nearly 3,000 approved online bidders (who participated through LiveAuctioneers.com and Invaluable.com). And, for some lots as many as 15 phone lines were humming, in addition to the estimated 1,000 left (or absentee) bids that were recorded that day.

It was exhausting, but it was exhilarating, too, remarked Matt Cottone of Cottone Auctions. Fortunately, the market is very strong for better artwork and fine decorative accessories, as we had plenty from both categories in this auction. We stayed true to our philosophy of trying not to sell too much merchandise in any one sale and only offering better, fresh-to-the-market items.Cottone Auction a barnburner in Geneseo, New York, March 27, 2010

Its difficult to find a high quality, diverse auction nowadays, as auctions have become more and more specialized. Cottone Auctions put together a fabulous sale on March 27, 2010 and got the results to go with it. Geneseo, New York, is a rural town in the northwest section of the state. One would think it would be difficult to get high-quality, fresh goods in that area. But guess what? Theyre doing it. Apparently upstate New York, which includes Buffalo and Rochester, is fertile territory for great consignments. The sale included great paintings, Tiffany, Handel, Duffner & Kimberley lamps, French cameo glass, Imperial Russia china, silver, furniture and more.
