Hindman’s December Sale Brings American and European Art, From N. C. Wyeth to Reginald MarshDec 13, 2021 10:00 EST
This December, Hindman will present a selection of works by American and European artists. One of the featured lots is N. C. Wyeth’s oil painting titled When Drake Saw for the First Time the Waters of the South Sea. The piece shows Sir Francis Drake at the top of a tree, looking out over the ocean. Wyeth (1882 – 1945) was an American illustrator and muralist. He went to Boston to learn drawing and illustration before training with artist Howard Pyle. Wyeth gradually gained popularity for his depictions of the American West. Throughout his artistic career, he produced over 100 illustration books, including children’s classics such as Treasure Island, King Arthur, and The Black Arrow.
The sale also includes Reginald Marsh’s The People’s Follies. Marsh was known for documenting urban life in the early 20th century. The offered painting shows a woman dancing for several businessmen in black suits. Art critic Emily Genauer stated about this work by Marsh, “It was [New York’s] people—and in their least attractive aspects—who fascinated him.” Explore more lots and register to bid online on Hindman.
