14 4 GREAT AUCTION OF IMPRESSIONIST ART American Association to Offer Works ly Monet, Hcnoir, Degas and Manet. TOETIIAITS BY REYNOLDS Collection Includes Sir Josh- ua's \Misses Paine\ and \Duko of Leinstcr.\ What Is likely to prove the Important picture auctlor) of tllo season has now been stuged by the American Art Asso- ciation. It Is certain to be the year's most Important test of the work of the, great French Impressionists, for ther are twenty.sevei canvases by Claude Monet, and collections In which this master Is represented to that extent are raro In the world. In addition thero are nine Renoir and examples by Plssarro, Blsley, Manet and Degas. Besides these modern masterpieces there aro an equal number of works Whose fame Is older, 'noludlng many eighteenth century portraits, hearted by Sir Joshua Reynolds and George Horn-ne- The sale will requlro two evenings At the Hotel Plaza for their disposal, on January 14 and 15, and tho Impression-1s- t canvases will be In the first sale. They aro sure to set an auction pare that even the old masters of tho fee-on- d day's sale will find hard to follow, although old mastors. ro the cables say. have been \going\ unprecedentedly of late. But In recent years somo subtlo Influ- ence has gradually been swaying tho general publlo Into an appreciation of the work of Monet, Manet and their fel- lows, and the very painting i that were once reviled aro now everywhere praised. The present opportunity to catch the Monet tone is, as has been said before, unrivalled. It contains five of the cele- brated studies of \The Thames\ at Lon- don, all of them glowing symphonies of color. The audacious freedom of the study of the sunlight cxplod'ns Jut over tho towers of Westminster made tho English gasp years ago, for In tho drama .Monet records, Westminster, so sacred to man, plays second fiddle to tho sun. In the \Sun Through the Mtsi.\ one of the Waterloo Bridge series, the sun Is still moro dominant. It la an orange colored lamp swinging hjph In tho moving fogs, and almost everything has been eliminated but the faint sun nnd Its reflections In the river. Vet no one would daro to call the canvas empty. On the contrary It Is ono of thi most eloquent of the Monet series, and the series Includes a set of Venetian scenes, studies o' water lilies nnd scenes at The recent death of Renoir will prob- ably accentuate the Interest In his works, which Include somo Important figure pieces. Ono of these Is the JOarsmen of Chaton,\ a vivid study of outdoors that sparkles with color even from the farthest end of the gallery. The \Two Sisters\ have all the uncon- sciousness that Renoir's young girls have. One of them, whose face Is shaded by her hat, gives the artist an opportunity for subtle values. A \Mother and Child\ la In Renoir's early manner and a curious contrast to the looseness of style In the \Young Woman Seated.\ One of the paintings by Manet shows a woman dressing before a. mirror, and two others are portrait heads In pastel, in which hie Kciilua In this medium Is fully exhibited. Tito Desna Faitela. Degas Is , represented by two large pastels also; one of them a study of ballet girls. They are in his last period when the old artist had acquired a freedom of touch that was so amazing that some of his admirers, like the ad- mirers, of Beethoven and Rembrandt, claim that the later end of a great man Is finer than the beginning. The Interest in the modern division of this sale is by no means confined to the vivid Work of the Imoresslonlsts. It will be a pleasant surprise to Americans to find a canvas by no less a personage than John Singer Sargent, whose can- vases are so firmly guarded by the col- lectors who possess them that there never has been the cltance to establish nn' auction rating for him commensurate with' his fame. The present work Is a three-quart- length study of an Italian laborer, with a brown cloak wrapped about him partly, leaving his arm and shoulder bare, and giving Sargent an opportunity for some especially dexter- ous flesh tones. Alfred Stevens, who had so much In- fluence upon Chase and Whistler, ,s represented by a charming figure of a girl In a doorway. J. Francis Murphy's \September Afternoon\ shows this' painter at his best, the George Inness landscape Is characteristic, and two can vases by W. M. Hunt sljow an unfa- miliar phase of his art. Wlnslow Homer's great talent can already be divined In the small and early water color of a girl In a garden. D. y. Cam- eron, who Is already widely known as an etcher, will probably be better known some day as a painter, and Ave of his interesting but sombre canvases are here Included. There are also paintings by W. U Metcalf, Thaulow, Veddcr, Wlllem Marls, Maufra and Boudln umon-- j the moderns. ' Spectacular Bidding- Likely. Interesting as It Is to artists to watch the steady Increase In vogue of the modern men the great world will prob- ably continue to reserve Its enthu- siasms for the spectacular struggles of the big collectors for the works of the long acknowledged masters. As the rres- - ont sale Includes highly Important by Raeburn, Lawrence, Roy-nold- x, Gainsborough, Romney and Van Mlprevelt, tho chances are that the spectators, upon this occasion will have all the drama they desire, Particularly will this bo so. as the Sir Joshua Reynolds portraits Include that of the young \Misses Paine,\ and recent developments In London Indicate that there Is an especial Interest In por traits of young children at this time. Tho recent sensational struggle there for the possession of the portrait of two young children, with Its attendant record breaking prlco Is fresh In every ones mina. The painting has all of Sir Joshua's Buavlty and elegance. The two children. It seems, were the daughters of James Palno the famous architect, and tho younger of the two married Tilly Kettle, tho artist. Two other portraits by Reynolds are of the Duke of Lelnster nnd the Earl of Huntington. In the latter there Is some brilliant reallum in the painting of the blue slllt coat with Its gold braid ornaments. Tho \Duke of minster\ Is one of Sir Joshua's studious portraits. Tho portrait of Blr Archibald Camrj bell by Romney Is tho most vigorous pne In the galleries. Sir Archibald fought with Wolfo at Quebec and was wounded there. He afterward was governor of Coromandel In the West Indies, later Decame an at. P. He died In 1791 and was burled In Westminster Abbey. He Is shown In a scarlet military coat and woarlng the Order of the Bath. The noso is easy and assured and the face is a commanding ono. \Master Arbuth not,\ who looks llko a youthful Byron, has been posed by Blr Thomas Law- - ronco with a huge and shaggy dog. \Lady Broughton\ by Sir Henry Rae burn, is a well composed directly painicu portrait or a typical British matron and his \Boy with Cherries\ is ono . of the interesting canvases that figured in tho sale of tho artist's works after his death. Portrait lr Cuyp. By Aelbert Cuyp Is a decorative nor trait of a little girl who wears aualnt flowing skirts In the Spanish style and with cleverly painted accessories In the way of still life. By Nicholas Maes Is a portrait of a cavalier wearing doublet and cloak and with long, curly hair falling upon his shoulders. This work, which was among those shown In the memorable Hudson-Fulto- n Exhibition ut the Metropolitan Museum of art, Is most highly finished, the artist having be- stowed unusual care upon the hands and upon tho accessories. \Alexander and Diogenes,\ by Sir Edwin Landseer, Is one of tho most striking dog pictures that ho has painted, \Alexander\ being a formidable bull terrier and \Diogenes\ ii small, shaggy dog, who maintains a discreet position of safety In the tub with a philosophical air. Two views of Venlco by Canaletto have all of his decoratlvo charm a landscape by Courbet has n masculine quality; Bonlngton, the Eng- lishman, Is represented by a clever pic- ture of a Turk taking his siesta, and of tho Barblzon school there nro two at mospherlo landscapes by Corot, a Dau blgny landscape, \Blind Tobias,\ by Jean Francois Millet ; a cattle piece by Emlle Van Marcke, and a fine saeep picture by Jacques. There are also three admirably characteristic landscapes by Henri These pictures are the property, of several owners. Most of the Monet land- scapes are the property of Arthur B. Emmons, now of Newport Mr. Em mons gave a number of years to the work of assembling them, but 111 health obliged him to give up his New York residence, hence the sale. Other owners are Joseph F. Flanagan of Boston and the estates of Thatcher M. Adams, Henry Sayles and Harris B. Dick. The art objects, palntlnss and furnl ture collected by tho late Frank W.
