Work By Renowned Brazilian Painter Emiliano Di Cavalcanti Expected To Bring $150,000-$250,000 At Crescent City Auction

July 17, 2014

Work By Renowned Brazilian Painter Emiliano Di Cavalcanti Expected To Bring $150,000-$250,000 At Crescent City Auction

An important figural oil-on-canvas painting by the renowned Brazilian artist Emiliano di Cavalcanti (1897-1976), rendered in 1948 and titled “Pescadores” (Spanish for Fishermen), is expected to bring $150,000-$250,000 at an estates auction scheduled for Saturday and Sunday, July 26 and 27 by Crescent City Auction Gallery. The sale will take place in the firm's gallery located at 1330 St. Charles Ave. in New Orleans.
The framed work, measuring 21.5-by-29.75-inches, is signed in the lower left by the artist and depicts fishermen hauling in their netted catch, with a fishing boat and setting sun in the background. Di Cavalcanti was friends with many famous artists, among them Pablo Picasso. In May, one of his paintings sold at Sotheby's for $360,000.
The painting is the expected top lot in a sale packed with quality items. Headlining the auction will be the estate of the late Barbara Mequet Ochsner (1928-2011). Mrs. Ochsner was a graduate of the Charity School of Nursing in New Orleans, where she met her future husband, Dr. Alton Ochsner, Jr. The couple appointed their home with original artwork and other fine items.
The Ochsner name will be familiar to residents of Louisiana, where he practiced medicine and became internationally known for the various medical devices he invented and his findings that linked smoking with cancer. He was a visionary, and hospitals and clinics are named after him. The auction will also feature quality merchandise from other prominent estates and collections.
In all, more than 1,350 lots will come up for bid, in categories ranging from fine art to French provincial furniture to dazzling estate jewelry to Sterling silver pieces to pottery and decorative accessories. Internet bidding will be facilitated by LiveAuctioneers.com and Invaluable.com. Phone and absentee bids will also be accepted. Start times will be 9 a.m. Central time both days.
Figures on horseback will be among the auction's top lots. A 19th-century bronze sculpture by Antoine-Louis Barye (French 1796-1875), titled “A Mounted Tatar Warrior Checking His Mount,” 13 inches tall, should make $10,000-$20,000, while a pair of Chinese Tang Dynasty pottery archers on horseback (circa 900 AD), unglazed with traces of original paint, should hit $15,000-$25,000.
Three early 20th-century Continental sterling silver sculptures of jousting knights on horseback with ivory faces, decorated with cabochon agate stones, a foot tall and weighing 59.5 troy ounces each, are expected to fetch $6,000-$9,000 each. Also, a late 19th-century patinated bronze after Vasili Grachev (Russian 1831-1905), titled “Cossack's Farewell Kiss,” should go for $2,500-$3,500.
In the sterling silver category, a rare George Shiebler sugar and creamer set (circa 1885), in the Naturalistic Taste, both mounted with large spiders and weighing 7.7 troy ounces, is expected to hammer for $5,000-$7,500, while a suite of four George V weighted candlesticks made in the early 20th century, hallmarked Sheffield, in the Neoclassical Taste, should garner $1,500-$2,500.
The top lot in the estate jewelry category is an unusual three-piece gold overlay on silver and enamel diamond parure (matching set of jewelry), consisting of a necklace and a pair of pendant earrings mounted with numerous bezel set diamonds of varying shapes. The necklace is 17 inches long and the set has a total diamond weight of 29.81 carats. The lot should realize $20,000-$30,000.
French provincial furniture will feature a Louis XV-style carved apple wood vaisselier made in the 19th century, 84 inches tall (est. $1,000-$2,000); a monumental Louis XV-style carved walnut double door armoire made circa 1815, 92.5 inches tall (est. $1,000-$2,000); and an early 19th-century Louis XV-style parquetry inlaid cherry sideboard, 53.5 inches wide (est. $900-$1,500).
Artwork will be offered in abundance. An early 20th-century oil wash-on-cardboard by Alexander J. Drysdale (American 1870-1934) titled “Moss Draped Oak Tree,” pencil signed, is estimated at $6,000-$9,000, and a 20th-century woodblock print by noted Newcomb College artist Sadie Irvine (American 1887-1970), titled “Evening (Lake Ponchartrain),” also pencil signed, should make $3,000-$5,000. A signed oil-on-board by the renowned Louisiana folk artist Clementine Hunter (1886-1988), titled “Mary and Angels Awaiting the Birth of Jesus,” painted circa 1960, carries a pre-sale estimate of $3,000-$5,000.
Four artworks by the Ohio-born Louisiana artist Alberta Kinsey (1875-1952) will cross the auction block. One is a signed oil-on-board titled “Still Life on a Table Top,” measuring 23.5-by-18.5-inches, which is estimated at $5,000-$7,000). The other is a 20th-century watercolor work, signed and titled “Pirates Alley,” diminutive at just 8.75-by-5.75 inches. It's been estimated accordingly, at $400-$800.
A lovely 20th-century oil-on-canvas landscape scene by the Swedish-born Louisiana artist Knute Heldner (1877-1952), titled “Lake Scene With Birches in Spring,” in the original frame, should command $8,000-$12,000, and a watercolor painting by the Illinois-born Louisiana artist Morris Henry Hobbs (1892-1967), titled “Pygmy Owl and Bromeliad,” is expected to hammer for $1,500-$2,500.
Lots 1-800 will be sold on July 26, while lots 801-1,354 will be sold on July 27. A 22 percent buyer's premium will apply to all purchases.
