    horse The principal purpose was to settle a wager based on the positioning of a horse s legs in the action of trotting the question being whether all four hooves came off the ground at the same time After a few unsuccessful attempts Muybridge managed to set up a battery of cameras enabling him to record split second movements His continuing work with animals and models in motion eventually led to his invention of the zoopraxiscope a moving picture machine that showed a rapid succession of images Throughout the 1880s Muybridge lectured in America and abroad With the help of Thomas Eakins he found sponsors at the University of Pennsylvania and there Muybridge continued his work taking thousands of locomotion studies of men women children animals and birds The results were published in a epic portfolio of 781 folio prints after his photographs Animal Locomotion Muybridge s motion studies are considered to be a critical step in the evolution of photography to motion pictures Horses indicates images that show four hooves off the ground Pl 593 Racking saddle Pronto 1 500 Pl 599 Trotting bareback Dusel Chip in upper left corer of margin light stain upper left away from image and light tide mark 600 Pl 602 Trotting bareback rider 43 Smith Small chip out of right margin light tide mark 1 400 Pl 603 Trotting saddle rider 43 Smith Light tide mark 1 400 Pl 616 Canter saddle rider 106 Daisy Light spots in upper right not affecting image 1 550 Pl 636 Jumping a hurdle saddle Daisy 1 400 Pl 640 Jumping a hurdle saddle bay horse Daisy Scattered spots mostly in margins 1 400 Pl 647 Jumping a hurdle bareback rider 105 Pandora rider is Rush Shippen Huidekoper first dean of veterinary medicine at University of Pennsylvania

  • Prints by 18th and 19th Century American Artists
    daily life from American heartland A number of these were made into prints of which this is one of the most desirable and rare The image is an icon of American art and politics A group of voters all men the only enfranchised citizens at the time gather beneath an oak tree on a Missouri farm to listen to the candidates present their positions and qualifications The speaker leans forward for emphasis while an imposing opposing candidate sits behind listening and another makes notes on a pad This latter individual is thought to be Bingham himself who was involved in politics for a number of years Though based on actual events witnessed by Bingham the scene is general and iconographic The mix of ages and social classes thoughtfully considering the candidates is an ideal image of American democracy 6 200 George Caleb Bingham Martial Law or Order Number 11 Columbia and Kansas City Missouri George C Bingham Company 1872 21 1 2 x 30 3 4 image plus full margins and text 27 x 37 o d Engraving and mezzotint by John Sartain Designated PROOF Some age spotting Excellent impression A number of George Caleb Bingham s genre pictures were made into prints This composition is unusual because rather than being a general situation such as a genre scene on a river raft or at an election this is a strong polemical piece depicting a particular event during the Missouri Kansas fighting before and during the Civil War The scene of murder devastation and misery is explained by the subtitle on the print AS EXEMPLIFIED IN THE DESOLATION OF BORDER COUNTIES OF MISSOURI DURING THE ENFORCEMENT OF MILITARY ORDERS ISSUED BY BRIGADIER GENERAL EWING OF THE FEDERAL ARMY FROM HIS HEAD QUARTERS KANSAS CITY AUGT 25TH 1863 Prior to this event in the 1860s a veritable war existed in western Missouri and Kansas between pro and anti slavery advocates Due to some cruel raids and pitched battles as well as outright murders the officer in charge of the federal military district around Kansas City decided to clear the countryside of farming people The result saw Union and Confederate sympathizers as well as partisans expelled from homes which were destroyed Despite protests by Bingham and other powerful citizens the order was enforced Many innocent people suffered horribly Bingham never forgave Ewing and hounded him on the matter for the rest of their lives Between 1865 and 1867 Bingham worked on his painting with the plan to issue prints of the image Not until 1872 was the plate readied by John Sartain in Philadelphia and published with financial backing by the Rollins family in Missouri Distribution of the print even included circulating it in Ohio where Ewing was running for political office in later years The likeness of Ewing in the picture shows him drawing a gun while women old men and boys plead for mercy The Negro man and boy in the foreground exemplify how the innocent were victimized Burning farms are seen across the far horizon Art historians claim that this is not the artist s best work but it is the most powerful image of the border war in the 1860s by a participant 5 000 Thomas Cole Voyage of Life Youth New York American Art Union 1850 15 1 2 x 22 3 4 image Engraving by John Smillie Wide margins with light soiling in margins Excellent impression Overall very good condition Ref Thomas Cole One Hundred Years Later A Loan Exhibition Boston and New York Wadsworth Athenæum and Whitney Museum of American Art 1949 Matthew Baigell Thomas Cole New York 1981 Thomas Cole 1801 1848 is known as the founder of the Hudson River School of landscape painting and produced primarily realistic and imaginary landscapes Samuel Ward commissioned Cole to paint a set of four allegorical paintings in 1839 These four prints engraved after Cole s paintings depict the stages of life from birth to death Cole s inspiration may have come from a sermon by Reverend Reginald Heaver referring to life which bears on us like the stream of a mighty river In 1849 Smillie engraved Youth for the American Art Union 1839 1851 an organization created to support and develop popular appreciation of American art by issuing prints engraved after paintings which the organization owned The favorable reception of this print led Smillie to engrave the three other voyages and issue the four print set in 1855 This image shows the man just beginning to depart from his guardian angel before he begins to deal with the difficult currents of manhood through appeal to God 1 200 Emanuel Leutze The Angel s Whisper Philadelphia Bradley Co Rochester R H Curran 1858 16 x 12 Mezzotint by John Sartain Minor tear in bottom margin expertly repaired Otherwise very good condition This print is after a painting by Emanuel Leutze Born in Germany in 1816 Leutze is known mainly as an historical and portrait painter He and his family emigrated to the United States and settled in Philadelphia where he studied painting under John Rubens Smith In 1840 Leutze traveled back to Germany to study under Lessing He lived in Germany for twenty years before returning to America in 1859 to paint Westward the Course of the Empire an allegorical historical mural for the House of Representatives in Washington D C Leutze here shows a mastery of the more intimate tender moments of human experience In his engraved interpretation Sartain beautifully captures the range of tone that makes the composition so successful Below the image an excerpt for the Irish poet Samuel Lover s ballad The Angel s Whisper lends a title to the print and enhances its tender effect Celebrating both virtuosity of motherhood and the saintliness of children this print is a beautiful example of Victorian sensibility and sentiment 325 Frederic Edwin Church The hearts sic of the Andes Berlin F Sala Co
