OTTAWA, Ill. – An amazing array of Native American-themed fine art and sunken treasure recovered from the wreck of the Nuestra Senora De Atocha – along with reverse-on-glass portraits of George and Martha Washington — are featured lots at Matthew Bullock on Saturday, March 2. The catalog is now available for bidding at LiveAuctioneers.

The sale’s top lot is an original from Native American portraiture specialist Elbridge Burbank (1858-1949). Entitled No-Flesh Sioux, the 13 by 9in portrait was made in Pine Ridge, South Dakota, and the lot notes claim the image was used in a period railroad advertisement. Burbank created more than 1,200 portraits of American Indians from more than 125 tribes in his lifetime, so originals are highly sought by collectors. This one is estimated at $5,000-$10,000.

Grace Ravlin (1873-1956) was a free-spirited artist who painted the places she visited all across the world. She attended the Art Institute of Chicago and was a member of the Taos art community. Indian Dance is likely from her time in New Mexico, a framed oil on canvas measuring 28 by 36in. It carries an estimate of $5,000-$10,000.

In the 19th century, fabric banners were a common form of advertising for elections. This ‘extremely rare’ banner for the  Cleveland – T. A. Hendricks 1884 Democratic Party ticket is double-sided and measures 113 by 10.25in. Interestingly, Cleveland was the first Democrat to win the presidency since the Civil War. The banner is estimated at $4,000-$8,000.

Two items brought up from the depths by Mel Fisher at the Nuestra Senora De Atocha 1622 shipwreck should have bidders on the edge of their seats. Certified as genuine by Fisher’s Treasure Salvors, the silver ingot ($5,000-$10,000) and iron knife ($1,000-$5,000) represent an amazing opportunity to own a piece of history.

Dated to around 1800, the reverse-on-glass portraits of George and Martha Washington have an almost life-like quality to the renderings. The Martha portrait has a unfortunate crack but the works are otherwise in good condition. They are together estimated at $2,000-$4,000.
