American Indian & Western Art

The September 10th, 2010 American Indian and Western Art auction will contain over 500 lots in the first session and over 150 lots in the second session immediately following. We are pleased to offer selections of early beadwork from the Fraser Douglass Collection, Cincinnati; contemporary art from the Van Zelst Collection, Chicago; and a group of ethnographic Arctic material from Clifford J. MacGregor, a meteorologist and Arctic explorer. A few highlight lots include a monumental Western Mono basket (lot 93) which has been published both in the George Wharton James and Otis Tufton Mason reports on Indian Basketry, and a finely carved eastern woodlands gunstock club (lot 481). For Western art lovers, two important 1893 Sharp/Hauser Western Photograph Albums surfaced showing images which Hauser and Sharp used to execute some of their paintings. Two paintings by Hauser (lots 305 and 306) offered in this auction have corresponding photographs in the album. In addition there is Southwest textiles, pottery, basketry and jewelry; beadwork from the Plains and Northeast; Eskimo bone and ivory carvings and tools, plus Arctic dolls; baskets from the Aleutian Islands, Northwest Coast and California; Northeast bark containers and quillwork, plus burl bowls and ladles, and much more
