Description:
LÖIS MAILOU JONES (1905 - 1998) Vineyard Haven Harbor. Watercolor on wove paper, 1924. 254x356 mm; 10x14 inches. Signed and dated in pencil, lower right. Provenance: collection of the artist; thence by descent to the current owner, private collection, New York, with the artist's hand-written label on the frame verso. This charming view of Vineyard Haven Harbor is one of the earliest known examples of the artist's painting on Martha's Vineyard we have located. These docks in Tisbury were typical of the Martha's Vineyard subjects which Jones would revisit many times over a 60-year period. Jones knew the area well from summer visits to her family's residence in Oak Bluffs. In the summer of 1924, Jones had just finished her first year as a design major at the School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston. According to Tritobia Hayes Benjamin, Jones then met both the musician and composer, Harry T. Burleigh, and Jonas Lie, president of the National Academy of Design, on the Vineyard who offered their support of her artistic career. Benjamin p. 125.

Description:
LÖIS MAILOU JONES (1905 - 1988) Menemsha. Drypoint on cream wove paper, circa 1940s. 178x214 mm; 7x8 3/8 inches, full margins. Signed and titled in pencil, lower margin. A very good impression of this scarce print with rich burr and inky wiping. This is only the second intaglio print by Jones to appear at auction at Swann Galleries. Intaglio printmaking (etching, drypoint and aquatint) is a medium in which she experimented briefly during her time at Howard University in the early 1940s. Two other etchings of hers, The Quarry and Les Clochards, Paris, are in the collection of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York.

Description:
LOÏS MAILOU JONES (1905 - 1998) Still Life with Grapefruit. Oil on canvas board, 1928. 300x445 mm; 11 3/4x17 1/2 inches. Signed and dated "April '29" in oil, lower right. Provenance: collection of the artist; thence by descent to the Loïs Mailou Jones Pierre-Noël Trust. According to a notation on the frame backing, this bright still life is the artist's first oil painting, completed a year after she graduated with honors from the School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston. There, she studied textile design and painted in tempera and watercolor. In 1928, she finished graduate study at the Designers Art School of Boston. Later that year, she attended a summer session at Harvard University while working as a freelance textile designer for F.A. Foster Company. Jones did not begin a body of work in oil until joining the faculty of Howard University in 1930. Most of her early still lifes were made during her studies of Cezanne while at the Académie Julian in Paris--Cauliflower and Pumpkin, 1938, in the collection of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York, is from this early period. Benjamin p. 125; Messenger p. 21. Estimate $10,000 - 15,000

This beautiful Martha's Vineyard landscape is of an area that Jones knew well from her youth. Her grandmother worked as a housekeeper and nanny on the Vineyard, and had saved up to purchase land in Edgartown and Oak Bluffs, where Jones began spending summers in 1906. Her parents also purchased a summer home there in 1909, and Jones spent every summer on the picturesque waterfront. She maintained ties to the community while studying graphic design and art in Boston. In 1928, she finished her graduate studies at the Designers Art School of Boston. Later that year, she attended a summer session at Harvard University while working as a freelance textile designer for F.A. Foster Company. Jones had a body of watercolors from the Vineyard and a solo exhibtion at Oak Bluffs before joining the faculty of Howard University in 1930. Estimate $6,000-9,000
