Summer Estates Auction Highlights Sculpture by Cyrus Dallin and Painting by George HitchcockJul 18, 2021 09:00 EDT
In the upcoming Summer Estates Auction, Ahlers & Ogletree will highlight a sculpture by Cyrus Dallin, titled The Scout. Dallin is celebrated for his iconic sculptural depictions of Native Americans. Dallin grew up in the small village of Springville, which was surrounded by a wall for protection from the Paiutes and Utes. However, the nearby Native Americans only camped nearby to trade. Dallin spent most of his childhood in these camps, observing the daily lives and ceremonies of his neighbors. This inspired many of his sculptures. The available piece depicts a Native American mounted on a horse with a bow quiver on his back.
An oil painting by American painter and illustrator George Hitchcock is a leading lot. After graduating from Harvard Law School in 1874, George Hitchcock found little success as a lawyer. He then decided to pursue his interest in painting. In 1880, the artist set up his own studio in Holland. Depicting a windmill scene, the offered lot features warm tones and soft brushstrokes.
