Francis Augustus Silva Painting Offered Alongside Decorative Art From Southern & Murray C. Perlman EstatesJun 02, 2022 10:00 EDT
Session one of the upcoming Spring Southern Estates event from Everard Auctions and Appraisals will feature fine art, sculptures, furniture, and carpets from collections including the Estate of Murray C. Perlman. Leading session one is Francis Augustus Silva’s Early Morning Sailing. Silva (1835 – 1886) was a second-generation Hudson River School painter from New York. He is best known as an American Luminist painter who captured the marine life around the Hudson River and the coastline of Massachusetts. The available painting shows a sunrise with atmospheric effects. Also notable is an oil on board depicting sharecroppers titled Picking Cotton by William Aiken Walker (1838 – 1921). Three figures pick cotton in a field with cottages in the distance. Walker was a South Carolina artist whose most famous paintings document Southern scenes of plantations, cotton fields, docks, and wood cabins. The available lot is accompanied by a letter from Anne Cohen DePietro, from the Charleston Renaissance Gallery, certifying to her knowledge that the work is an original by Walker.
During session two, the catalog features Watson sterling silverware sets, jewelry, and fine armorial china sets. Included is a Watson Sterling silver set containing 143 knives, forks, spoons, pierced serving forks, a scalloped serving spoon, and a cheese knife. An 18th-century Chinese export armorial china set, comprising 14 bowls, plates, and an oval serving dish, each painted with a central shield, is also available in the second session. All the pieces are decorated with garlands and flowers, birds, and a cornucopia. Find the listed items and more online auctions on Bidsquare.
