Description:
Lot 75 Francis Hopkinson Smith American, 1838-1915 Voorstraat Haven-Dordrecht (Holland), circa 1890 Signed F. Hopkinson Smith (ll) Gouache, pastel and graphite pencil on paper laid to board 20 x 29 1/2 inches Provenance: Private collection In "Between Showers in Dort" ( Scribner's , May 1899), Francis Hopkinson Smith wrote of painting while traveling along the canals of Dordrecht in the "good ship, the Red Tub," accompanied by his regular boatman, Peter Jansen, a former sailor. Dordrecht was among Smith's favorite painting spots (along with Venice, Paris, and London), and he returned frequently to the southern Dutch city between the late 1870s and late 1890s. This gouache, depicting a view along the city's principle canal and featuring the fourteenth century brick cathedral, the Groote Kerk, is similar to his watercolor An Ancient Groote Kerk , illustrated in his Scribner's article, suggesting that it was created before or near the time of the article's publication date. Another related watercolor by Smith is Behind the Groote Kirk , Dordrecht (Brooklyn Museum), dated between 1878 and 1892. The use of a diagonal to draw the viewer through a scene was a pictorial device used often by Smith; he employed it effectively within this tightly cropped and well-balanced design. C The Spanierman Gallery, LLC Estimate $2,000-4,000 The board is warped. Some frame rubbing and minor losses along the edges of the work. Paper is toned.

Lot 66 Francis Hopkinson Smith American, 1838-1915 The Inn of William the Conqueror Signed F. Hopkinson Smith (ll) Watercolor and pencil on paper 24 1/2 x 18 3/4 inches Provenance: Private collection, CA Private collection, NY Exhibited: New York, Spanierman Gallery, Works on Paper , Nov. 20, 2008-Jan. 3, 2009, no. 11 (26-27 color ill.) Literature: Carol Lowrey, in Carol Lowrey and Lisa N. Peters, Works on Paper , exh. cat. (New York: Spanierman Gallery, 2008), 26-27 color ill. (no. 11) Smith was a prodigious watercolorist and inveterate traveler, as well as a novelist. On his travels, among the locales that captured his imagination most was the Hostellerie Guillaume le Conquerant, a quaint and historic inn in the Normandy town of Dives-sur-Mer, the place from which William the Conqueror and his knights set sail for England in 1066. Smith described the site in his 1912 novel, The Arm-Chair at the Inn, noting its "flower-choked yard flanked about on three sides by a chain of moss-encrusted, red-tiled, seesaw roofs, all out of plumb." Combining opaque strokes and translucent washes, Smith captured the charm of this setting in this work, while demonstrating his consummate control of his medium.
