Description:
Lot 9 Xanthus Russell Smith American, 1839-1929 Bombardment and Capture of Fort Hatteras, NC, August 29, 1861 Signed Xanthus Smith and dated 1888 (ll); signed, dated and inscribed on the reverse Bombardment of Fort Hatteras N.C./ Painted for Wm G. Williamson Esq./ Formerly 1st. Asst. Engr U.S. Navy Oil on canvas 21 1/8 x 34 1/8 inches Provenance: Private collection, Long Island, NY, circa 1970 Thence by descent to the current owner Although Xanthus Smith served in the U.S. Navy from 1862-1864, he saw little action. He sketched hundreds of ships in a variety of media, both for official purposes as well as for his own pleasure, and earned a reputation for his artistic ability. After the war, he made a name for himself painting some of the Civil War's most famous sea battles, meticulously researching these engagements and corresponding with the officers and sailors who were present. Depicting the first significant Union Victory in the Civil War, Bombardment and Capture of Fort Hatteras, NC, August 29, 1861 was actually painted more than twenty years after the bombardment took place. According to the inscription on the reverse of the painting, it was commissioned by William G. Williamson, a former first Engineer in the U. S. Navy, whose role in this historic event is unknown. The Battle of Hatteras Inlet Batteries (also known as the Battle of Forts Hatteras and Clark) on August 28 and 29, 1861 marked the first significant Union victory in the Civil War. The Confederate Fort Hatteras and nearby Fort Clark on North Carolina's barrier islands were bombarded by amphibious Union forces, and the ill-equipped and undermanned Confederate forts surrendered on the second day. The Union assault comprised over 800 men and a flotilla of seven ships with cannons that had greater range than those protecting the earthen forts. Additionally, the steam-powered Union ships were able to change position and fire without reliance on wind and currents. The Union victory gave them strategic control over Hatteras Inlet, the only deep water access to Pamlico Sound and the North Carolina shore beyond. C Estimate $20,000-40,000 Canvas appears to be trimmed to the tacking edge with a strip lining. Scattered touches of inpaint. Minor wrinkling of paint film in the clouds. At the horizon line at center is a globule of what appears to be paint that fluoresces upon examination. Any condition statement is given as a courtesy to a client, is only an opinion and should not be treated as a statement of fact. Doyle New York shall have no responsibility for any error or omission. The absence of a condition statement does not imply that the lot is in perfect condition or completely free from wear and tear, imperfections or the effects of aging.
