Description:
Thomas Waterman Wood American, 1823-1903 Only a Dime , 1887 Signed T. W. Wood and dated 1887 Watercolor, gouache and graphite pencil on paper laid down to fine linen 29 3/4 x 20 inches Exhibited: New York, American Watercolor Society, Feb. 26, 1887 Literature: Illustrated Catalogue Twentieth Annual Exhibition of the American Watercolor Society , New York: National Academy of Design, 1887, no. 321, detail illus. facing p. 40 Provenance: James Buchanan Houston, New York (purchased from the exhibition) Buchanan Houston, Ossining, NY and Worcester, MA Tacie-Belle Houston Hale, Cambridge, MA and Dublin, NH Sally Harper Hale (Sears) Taggart, Manchester, MA and Blue Hill, ME Thence by descent to the current owner This richly detailed composition of a young boy selling feather dusters is one of a number of single figure pictures of boys and girls executed by Thomas Waterman Wood. The figures typically are depicted engaged in some type of gainful activity, as seen here. Wood had the custom of drawing small detailed ink illustrations which were employed as illustrations in exhibition catalogues. Such a drawing, depicting the upper body of the young street vendor within a rondel, served as an illustration in the exhibition catalogue published in 1887 for the twentieth annual exhibition of the American Watercolor Society. The original pen and ink drawing is included in the permanent collection of the Thomas Waterman Wood Art Gallery. We extend our thanks to Paul Worman for his kind assistance in authenticating and documenting the present work, which will be included in the forthcoming catalogue raisonne that he is preparing for the T. W. Wood Art Gallery in Montpelier, Vermont. Paper is laid down to a fine linen fabric. Traces of what may be mold as well as what appear to be acid stains from a wood backing are evident on the back of the fabric, the edges of which are friable. These are not apparent on the watercolor itself. There is a small 1/4 x 1/4 inch area of restoration approximately two inches to the left of the young boy's proper right shoe.

Description:
Thomas Waterman Wood 1823 - 1903 A CRITICAL MOMENT The present work refers to another painting of the same theme by the artist, Fresh Eggs, from 1881. When that work was shown at the Inter-States Exhibition in Chicago in the same year, it drew the attention of Daniel L. Wells, a successful Milwaukee businessman and art collector who commissioned Wood to paint another version of it for his collection. He did not want an exact copy, so Wood made a few changes, among them altering the viewing angle and the stance of the young girl who, in this case, is facing us rather than facing away. The young models are the same. The boy's identity is unclear, as Wood does not mention his name in his diary. The girl is Jennie Durkin, whom Wood had portrayed before and is easily identifiable from the distinctive bangs in her hair. We thank Paul Worman for his assistance in the cataloguing of this lot. signed T.W.

In 1846, Wood traveled to Boston, where he may have studied with Chester Harding. A successful portraitist in the 1850s, Wood interrupted his career in 1858 to go to Paris to study the Old Masters and establish a studio. In the Louvre, he copied paintings by Gleyre, Titian, Greuze, Murillo and Rembrandt, while concentrating on genre subjects in his studio. He finally settled in New York in 1867 after years of travel and eventually became President of the American Water Color Society and served as the Vice President of the National Academy of Design.
