Description:
Lot 2075: TWO 19 TH CENTURY ENGRAVINGS OF STEPHEN DECATUR INCLUDING RARE ENGRAVED PORTRAIT BY SAINT-MEMIN. Description: 1) Charles Balthazar Julien Fevert de Saint-Memin (1770-1852) was a well known portrait engraver of prominent Americans including George Washington, Benjamin Franklin, Paul Revere and Thomas Jefferson which are done in identical style to the Stephen Decatur portrait profile. Saint-Memin fled France during the French Revolution and lived in the United States and produced his art between 1793-1814. His work is quite distinctive and after he returned to France he was the Director of the Musee des Beaux-Arts de Dijon until his death. This is a fine portrait in an old frame with ink inscription on reverse which notes "The property of Lila Mayo Garnett after my death signed Lila Deyo". Housed in a 9-1/2" wooden frame, the double matted vignetted round image is 2-1/4". 2) Housed in a 9" x 7" wooden frame, printed portrait of full standing Commodore Decatur on board ship holding telescope. PROVENANCE: A most historical and important collection from the estate of Maria Decatur Mayo Deyo (Lila) Garnett of Kittery Point, Maine. CONDITION: Both appear very good, though not removed from frames. The Saint-Memin has staining and foxing. Both images show yellowing in paper. 52714-194
