                          proof, wm,
Original hand signed, with remarque, William de la Montagne Cary (1840-1922) antique 1891 proof etching. William Cary was known for his western themed art, based on travels in younger years. His works from 1866-1896 consisted of oils, watercolor, pen, ink, etchings, engravings, were based on memories of sites and scenes that he witnessed in his 1866 Westward expedition. Some of these works were published in popular magazines of the time such as Leslie's, Harper's, and Scribner's. His artwork and illustrations of the Plains Indians, came to be regarded as important historical documents due to the amount of detail the works included. His detailed drawings, paintings, and engravings were also made into lithographs, and book plates, that are also highly collectible today. This original proof etching depicts a scenic view of a Native American camp with teepee's and residents on one side of the river edge and a lone warrior with horses on the other. Etching is in its original ornate wood frame, under glass, with wood backing. (please note: pictures show some reflections in glass from lighting). The work is untitled, as was common with proofs. Later references refer to it as: Fresh Horses, or On the Upper Missouri. It is signed in the plate (bottom left) "Wm M. Cary". Hand signed in pencil "Wm M. Cary" on the right. Signed in plate "Copyright 1891 Fishcel Adler and Schwartz, New York" top left edge. Has a remarque, (the small original hand-drawn pencil work by Cary) in the lower margin, left, off center. This is a pronghorn antelope head and another in behind him and wood branch. Remarque's were used on the pre-publication proof's to test the etching prior to printing, and most were then removed from the plate before the edition was printed. Not examined outside the frame, the etching size is 8-1/2" x 21-1/2" (includes white edge). Overall size 15-1/2" x 29-1/2". Overall frame size is 19" x 34". The etching itself appears to be in very good condition. No holes, tears, or stains. Excellent impression with minut details. The background matte paper shows water staining (left corner) and overall toning. The glass is intact and wood frame is complete and solid overall. It displays well even though there are lite signs of age, wear. Be sure to click on the small preview photo to the left to see this amazing art work!  With the addition of a new matte this etching would make an outstanding addition to your wall or collection. Please note due to size, this can only be sold and shipped to US continental, lower 48 states only,

thomas sully, torn hat, antique print,
Antique THOMAS SULLY Orig Framed Lithograph 1899 Boy THE TORN HAT Detroit Publishing Co. This is an amazing antique lithograph of a boy in "The Torn Hat" by Thomas Sully (1783-1872). Sully, an American portrait painter, was born in Lincolnshire, England, came to American at the young age, living most of his life in Philadelphia. He is known today as one of Philadelphia's leading portraitist for the early nineteenth century. His works featured some of the most influential people of his time. Presidents, Queens, leading musicians, composers. This work features Thomas's nine-year old son, Thomas Wilcocks Sully. Wearing an open shirt, rumpled jacket and a straw hat with a torn brim. This work was published in the late 1800's to the early 1900's by the Detroit Publishing Company. It is marked in the lower right "Copyright Detroit Publishing Company, 65008" It is not a typical antique print as it was done with a unique printing technique known as chromolithography. In using this process the publisher has managed to capture the boy's true haunting quality that was the essence of the original painting. It portrays well in its original now 'shabby chic' looking frame, behind glass. The print has excellent coloring still with no visible stains, tears or damage. Original paper backing is long gone. Framer's label is now viewable on back, "H. Leiber Company, Indiana". The lithograph measures 10" x 13". Overall frame size is 12-1/4" x 16". Although the frame is scarred, chipped, finish worn it could be restored if a more refined look is required. For those of us who can never hope to acquire an original painting by Thomas, its a joy to come across an scarce original antique chromolithograph of one of his works.

There does not appear to be any blind stamp, or watermark, but I have not opened this up to see it first hand. The paper appears to be wove with lite texture. There does not appear to be any tears or holes and the coloring is still quite vivid and bright and does not appear to have been subjected to sunlight when displayed. There is no foxing. There is some stains on the border and some on her dress area. I've shown several pictures so you can see the quality and its condition. I've cleaned the front glass, but it really needs to be opened up and cleaned and have the old dingy cardboard backing replaced. I'll leave that to you.
