Nonconformist Removed by the State. Satyr / Pan Mythology
Located in Miami, FL
This cartoon by Charles Addams is generations ahead of its time. To get the punch line, you need to know the meaning of a Satyr or Pan. Satyr: Part man and part beast. - A male nature spirit with ears and a tail resembling those of a horse, as well as a permanent, exaggerated permanent erection. Early artistic representations sometimes include horse-like legs; Satyrs were characterized by their vulgar, indecent ribaldry, and were rowdy lovers of wine, music, dancing, and women. They inhabited remote locales, such as woodlands, and they often attempted to seduce or rape nymphs and mortal women alike. It's prudish 1950s America, where TV programs show husband and wife sleeping in separate beds. The discussion and representation of sex was repressed. To make a bold statement about censorship and the uncompromising moral climate of the time, Addams uses a reference from the mythical world to make a statement about the real world. In doing so, he anticipates the sexual revolution of the late 1960s and 1970s. The satyr/pan symbolizes nonconformistism. He has his own earthy customs, attitudes, and ideas. Because of that is being handcuffed and formally taken away by the state whose goal is to repress natural erotic fun and frolic that is ubiquitous in todays society. A proper and perfectly pressed Park Ranger cleans out a lustful undesirable from pristine woodlands. With startled expressions, a vulnerable family of correct women witness the event as they are about to have a picnic. The Satyr grasps his Pipes of Pan just over his crotch. The background is populated by phallic symbols. This is one a the rare instances where Addams address the issue of sex. The Ranger is a dead ringer as a self portrait of Addams. Original illustration for a cartoon, showing a uniformed ranger leading away a manacled satyr, in front of a startled picnic party.

Karl Hagedorn (1889 - 1969) The Villa Malcontenta, Venice Watercolour and ink 33 x 50 cm Signed and dated 1958 lower right (dated August 23rd to reverse). A watercolour of the Villa Malcontenta in Venice, nestled between willow trees. The River Brenta flows serenely in the foreground. Villa Foscari is a patrician villa in Mira, near Venice, northern Italy, designed by the Italian Renaissance architect Andrea Palladio. It is also known as La Malcontenta ("The Discontented"), a nickname which - according to a legend - it received when the spouse of one of the Foscaris was locked up in the house because she allegedly did not live up to her conjugal duty. Karl Hagedorn was a painter and illustrator. He was educated in Berlin, and at the Manchester School of Technology, Manchester School of Art, and Slade School of Fine Art (where he later taught), before training in Paris under Maurice Denis. Hagedorn showed regularly at the Society of Modern Painters in Manchester, and then (from 1913 onwards), at the Royal Academy and the New English Art Club. He became a British citizen in 1914, and served in the British Army during World War I. During World War II, he sold pictures...

On the Path
Located in London, GB
'On the Path', pastel and ink on art paper, by Suzanne Tourte (circa 1950s). Executed with a lively palette of colour, this is a surprisingly sophisticated modern work of art which belies its rather naive style. Flowered fields, green grassy patches, a curved path and blue skies all figure in this engaging landscape with two figures. Newly framed and glazed in anti-reflective glass, this work is in good overall condition. Signed: 'S X Tourte' in the lower right hand. Please enjoy the many photos accompanying the listing. Upon request, a video may be provided. About the Artist: Suzanne Tourte (1904-1979) was a French painter, engraver, medalist, fresco artist, lithographer and illustrator. She was also an excellent vocalist. She studied at the school of Beaux-Arts in Reims while continuing her musical studies at the Conservatoire de la Ville.

Raft Landscape in Sweden / - Temporary structures -
Located in Berlin, DE
Otto Eglau (1917 Berlin - 1988 Kampen), Raft Landscape in Sweden, 1956. Watercolor and ink on paper, 45 x 60 cm, signed in his own hand lower right with "Eglau" and dated "[19]56". - somewhat darkened Exposé as PDF - Temporary structures - About the artwork A wide river landscape stretches out before us, its horizon line running across the upper part of the picture, creating the impression of enormous depth. The depth is further extended by the dark tree trunks, most of which spill into the picture, and at the same time rhythmized by their different positions. This sequence of movements gives the landscape a strong dynamic moment. Indeed, the landscape seems to be "fleeing" from beneath us. To keep the gaze on the foreground alone requires a real visual effort. By looking at the foreground, we have already arrived at the background. Therefore, we cannot speak of pictorial grounds in the classical sense. Rather, we are confronted with a structurally rhythmic continuum of space, the dynamics of which are further accelerated by the cut tree trunks in the foreground and the upright trunks in the background, which function as target marks. Since the narrow strip of sky has the same white tonality as the ice, this area also fits seamlessly into the spatial structure, so that a deserted "structural landscape" unfolds before us. The structure, however, is not - as in the case of Piet Mondrian - completely abstract and thus something that exists independently of itself, removed from the time of natural space. The structures that Otto Eglau discovered in nature remain bound to it, which is why they exhibit a temporality that corresponds to the 'course of things'. Even if they correspond to an architecture of nature brought to representation, the structures are not substantial, but contingent. Artistically uncovered, they present themselves to Eglau at the very moment he captures them. In nature itself, these structures will never be repeated in the same way. Panta rhei - everything flows, even if the flow of time is frozen by his artistic representation and the image, for all its dynamism, radiates calm at the same time. "The structures I put behind things, and the lines that hold my paintings, are signs of transient life. They are random like the trace a wave leaves in the sand, blurred like the border between sea and land, ephemeral like the life of a shell I hold in my hand." - Otto Eglau About the artist After his release from captivity in 1947, Otto Eglau studied at the Hochschule für Bildende Künste in Berlin. He was a student of Oskar Nerlinger, Max Kaus and Wolf Hoffmann. From 1953 he taught free drawing for architects at the Technical University of Berlin. In the years that followed, Eglau undertook numerous study trips that took him to Scandinavia, the Arab world, the Far East and even Macau. During these travels he cultivated the technique of watercolour, which allowed him to work quickly in the open air, while retaining a strong painterly quality. Scholarships enabled Eglau to stay in Japan from 1962 to 1963 and in Naples in 1970. From 1969 to 1976 Eglau was professor of etching at the International Summer Academy of Fine Arts in Salzburg. Between 1983 and 1988 Eglau worked simultaneously in his Berlin studio at Lietzensee, which had its own printing press, and in his studio in Kampen on the island of Sylt. Otto Eglau's work has been shown in more than 100 solo exhibitions worldwide and in more than 120 group exhibitions. "I love the vastness of the island. The mudflats off Kampen are my treasure trove; here I discover new shapes and colors every day. Without Sylt, I would be like a fish without water." - Otto Eglau Selected Bibliography Hanns Theodor Flemming: Otto Eglau. Das graphische Werk, Flensburg 1966.

GERMAN VERSION Otto Eglau (1917 Berlin – 1988 Kampen), Floßlandschaft in Schweden, 1956. Aquarell und Tusche auf Papier, 45 x 60 cm, unten rechts eigenhändig in Blei mit „Eglau“ signiert und mit „[19]56“ datiert. - etwas nachgedunkelt Exposé als PDF - Temporäre Strukturen - zum Werk Vor uns erstreckt sich eine weite Flusslandschaft, deren Horizontline im oberen Bereich des Bildes verläuft, wodurch der Eindruck einer enormen Tiefenerstreckung entsteht. Die Tiefe wird von den dunklen, zumeist ins Bild hineinfluchtenden Baumstämmen zusätzlich geweitet und – durch ihre verschiedenartigen Lagen – dabei zugleich rhythmisiert. Durch diese Bewegungsabfolge weist die Landschaft ein starkes dynamisches Moment auf. Und tatsächlich stellt sich der Eindruck ein, als ob die Landschaft unter uns ‚hinwegfluchten‘ würde. Den Blick einzig im Vordergrund zu halten, verlangt regelrecht eine visuelle Anstrengung. Auf den Vordergrund schauend sind wir bereits im Hintergrund angelangt. Daher kann gar nicht von Bildgründen im klassischen Sinne gesprochen werden. Vielmehr steht hier ein strukturell rhythmisiertes Raumkontinuum vor Augen, dessen Dynamik von den angeschnittenen Baumstämmen vorne und den als Zielmarken fungierenden aufgerichteten Stämmen hinten zusätzlich beschleunigt wird. Da der schmale Himmelstreifen dieselbe Weißtonalität wie die Wasserlandschaft aufweist, fügt sich auch dieser Bereich bruchlos in das Raumgefüge ein, so dass sich vor uns eine menschenleere ‚Strukturlandschaft‘ ausbreitet. Die Struktur ist aber nicht – wie dies bei Piet Mondrian der Fall ist – gänzlich abstrakt und dadurch etwas eigenständig für sich Bestehendes, das der Zeit des Naturraums enthoben ist. Die von Otto Eglau in der Natur entdecken Strukturen bleiben an diese zurückgebunden, weshalb sie eine dem ‚Lauf der Dinge‘ entsprechende Temporalität aufweisen. Auch wenn sie einer zur Darstellung gebrachten Architektur der Natur entsprechen, sind die Strukturen nichts Substanzielles, sondern kontingent. Künstlerisch aufgedeckt, bieten sie sich Eglau in eben jenem Moment dar, den er festhält. In der Natur selbst werden diese Strukturen niemals in derselben Art wiederkehren. Panta rhei – alles fließt, auch wenn sich der Fluss der Zeit durch seine künstlerische Darstellung verfestigt hat, wodurch das Bild – trotz aller Dynamik – zugleich auch Ruhe ausstrahlt. „Die Strukturen, die ich hinter die Dinge setze, und die Linien, die meine Bilder halten, sind Zeichen des vergänglichen Lebens. Sie sind zufällig wie die Spur, die eine Welle im Sand hinterlässt, unscharf wie die Grenze zwischen Meer und Land, vergänglich wie das Leben einer Muschel, die ich in der Hand halte.“ - Otto Eglau zum Künstler Nach seiner Entlassung aus der Kriegsgefangenschaft 1947 nahm Otto Eglau ein Studium an der Hochschule für Bildende Künste in Berlin auf. Dort war wer Schüler von Oskar Nerlinger, Max Kaus und Wolf Hoffmann. Ab 1953 unterrichtete er freies Zeichnen für Architekten an der Technischen Universität Berlin. In den Folgejahren unternahm Eglau zahlreiche Studienreisen, die ihn nach Skandinavien, in den arabischen Raum, nach Fernost und bis nach Macau führten. Auf diesen Fahrten kultivierte er die Technik des Aquarellierens, die eine zügige Bildschöpfung im Freiraum erlaubt und dennoch eine stark malerische Qualität aufweist. Stipendien ermöglichten es Eglau, sich von 1962 bis 1963 in Japan aufzuhalten und 1970 länger in Neapel zu verweilen. Von 1969 bis 1976 hatte Eglau die Professur für Radierung an der Internationalen Sommerakademie für Bildende Kunst in Salzburg inne. Zwischen 1983 und 1988 war Eglau parallel in seinem Berliner Atelier am...

The Waterfall, mid-century watercolor landscape, Cleveland School Artist
Located in Beachwood, OH
Frank Nelson Wilcox (American, 1887-1964) The Waterfall, 1956 Watercolor on Whatman board Signed and dated lower right 30 x 22 inches 35.5 x 27.25 inches, framed Frank Nelson Wilcox (October 3, 1887 – April 17, 1964) was a modernist American artist and a master of watercolor. Wilcox is described as the "Dean of Cleveland School painters," though some sources give this appellation to Henry Keller or Frederick Gottwald. Wilcox was born on October 3, 1887 to Frank Nelson Wilcox, Sr. and Jessie Fremont Snow Wilcox at 61 Linwood Street in Cleveland, Ohio. His father, a prominent lawyer, died at home in 1904 shortly before Wilcox' 17th birthday. His brother, lawyer and publisher Owen N. Wilcox, was president of the Gates Legal Publishing Company or The Gates Press. His sister Ruth Wilcox was a respected librarian. In 1906 Wilcox enrolled from the Cleveland School of Art under the tutelage of Henry Keller, Louis Rorimer, and Frederick Gottwald. He also attended Keller's Berlin Heights summer school from 1909. After graduating in 1910, Wilcox traveled and studied in Europe, sometimes dropping by Académie Colarossi in the evening to sketch the model or the other students at their easels, where he was influenced by French impressionism. Wilcox was influenced by Keller's innovative watercolor techniques, and from 1910 to 1916 they experimented together with impressionism and post-impressionism. Wilcox soon developed his own signature style in the American Scene or Regionalist tradition of the early 20th century. He joined the Cleveland School of Art faculty in 1913. Among his students were Lawrence Edwin Blazey, Carl Gaertner, Paul Travis, and Charles E. Burchfield. Around this time Wilcox became associated with Cowan Pottery. In 1916 Wilcox married fellow artist Florence Bard, and they spent most of their honeymoon painting in Berlin Heights with Keller. They had one daughter, Mary. In 1918 he joined the Cleveland Society of Artists, a conservative counter to the Bohemian Kokoon Arts Club, and would later serve as its president. He also began teaching night school at the John Huntington Polytechnic Institute at this time, and taught briefly at Baldwin-Wallace College. Wilcox wrote and illustrated Ohio Indian Trails in 1933, which was favorably reviewed by the New York Times in 1934. This book was edited and reprinted in 1970 by William A. McGill.

Crashing Waves on Atlantic Coast, Mid-century Seascape, Cleveland School Artist
Located in Beachwood, OH
Frank Nelson Wilcox (American, 1887-1964) Crashing Waves on the Atlantic Coast, 1957 Watercolor and graphite on paper Signed and dated lower right 22 x 29 inches Frank Nelson Wilcox (October 3, 1887 – April 17, 1964) was a modernist American artist and a master of watercolor. Wilcox is described as the "Dean of Cleveland School painters," though some sources give this appellation to Henry Keller or Frederick Gottwald. Wilcox was born on October 3, 1887 to Frank Nelson Wilcox, Sr. and Jessie Fremont Snow Wilcox at 61 Linwood Street in Cleveland, Ohio. His father, a prominent lawyer, died at home in 1904 shortly before Wilcox' 17th birthday. His brother, lawyer and publisher Owen N. Wilcox, was president of the Gates Legal Publishing Company or The Gates Press. His sister Ruth Wilcox was a respected librarian. In 1906 Wilcox enrolled from the Cleveland School of Art under the tutelage of Henry Keller, Louis Rorimer, and Frederick Gottwald. He also attended Keller's Berlin Heights summer school from 1909. After graduating in 1910, Wilcox traveled and studied in Europe, sometimes dropping by Académie Colarossi in the evening to sketch the model or the other students at their easels, where he was influenced by French impressionism. Wilcox was influenced by Keller's innovative watercolor techniques, and from 1910 to 1916 they experimented together with impressionism and post-impressionism. Wilcox soon developed his own signature style in the American Scene or Regionalist tradition of the early 20th century. He joined the Cleveland School of Art faculty in 1913. Among his students were Lawrence Edwin Blazey, Carl Gaertner, Paul Travis, and Charles E. Burchfield. Around this time Wilcox became associated with Cowan Pottery. In 1916 Wilcox married fellow artist Florence Bard, and they spent most of their honeymoon painting in Berlin Heights with Keller. They had one daughter, Mary. In 1918 he joined the Cleveland Society of Artists, a conservative counter to the Bohemian Kokoon Arts Club, and would later serve as its president. He also began teaching night school at the John Huntington Polytechnic Institute at this time, and taught briefly at Baldwin-Wallace College. Wilcox wrote and illustrated Ohio Indian Trails in 1933, which was favorably reviewed by the New York Times in 1934. This book was edited and reprinted in 1970 by William A. McGill. McGill also edited and reprinted Wilcox' Canals of the Old Northwest in 1969.
