Folk Art Portrait, Young Woman, by Ralph D. Curtis
Ralph Curtis (1808-1885) New York
Date/Period: Circa 1835 - SOLD


Folk Art Portrait, Young Woman, by Ralph D. Curtis Ralph Curtis (1808-1885) New York, entire view

Measurement: 32" x 21.75"

Material: Oil paint on mahogany panel

Condition: Scatters trivial…minor retouch

LITERATURE: See the November 2009 issue of The Magazine Antiques 1. for a
discussion of Ralph D. Curtis and his previously unknown body of work.

Additional Information: Of the fifty extant works only one is signed, all but one, are
painted on panel; most of his portraits, as is the case with this portrait, were never
framed. Only one portrait displaying the artist’s signature has been discovered. Stylistic
traditions/features of this hand include the long face and high prominent forehead; faces
are simply modeled and display a dark outline; noses are often elongated… bushy
eyebrows and a deep philtrum. Pepi Jelinek states “jewelry figures prominently in
Curtis’s portraits, and he took particular care in depicting women’s earrings, brooches”
1.
This lady wears a brooch…

Material: Oil on mahogany panel (an early 19th century door panel), within a period

Condition: Very good, minor restoration; images taken under blacklight available

Additional Information: Portrait of Baltimore native William Hindman Campbell (1795-
1839) in his dress uniform as a lieutenant in the U.S. Navy, probably to celebrate his

however his promising career was cut short when he died on 5 September 1839; he
was buried in Brooklyn, New York.

William James Hubard, a noted British-born artist, came to the United States as a
young man. Already well-known as a silhouette artist, he studied under Thomas Sully
and Gilbert Stuart and established a studio in Baltimore, where he became one of the
leading artists in that city. His portraits of Jackson, Calhoun, Clay, Marshall, John
Carroll, and others are known to survive in institutions and private collections.

Another portrait of Lt. William Hindman Campbell by Hubard is in the Maryland
Historical Society, as are his papers.

Provenance: Harry D. Berry, Jr. Collection to 1970’s; private collection.

Vintage Portrait, African American Gentleman, African American Southern Artist Signed in brick red paint: Spencer, Likely Circa 1900 Oil on academy


Vintage Portrait, African American Gentleman, African American Southern Artist
Signed in brick red paint: Spencer, Likely Circa 1900
Oil on academy, entire view

All we know is that “SPENCER” was likely a nomadic portraitist traveling the Southern
United States after the Civil War through the turn of the twentieth century…perhaps
through the 1920s and 1930s. We have other information suggesting that he was active
in Georgia and Richmond 1865-1872 capturing the images of ordinary people and well-
known Abolitionists active during the tragedy of this most unfortunate period in history.

We have sold two other paintings by SPENCER and are very pleased to present this
portrait (and another). We know of approximately eight portraits that were found in a
Georgia estate, all depicting African American subjects: most signed SPENCER in brick
red paint [this one in oyster white paint]. The sitters were ministers, church related; a
woman celebrating her beauty, and a soldier. A group of three portraits of Abolitionists
were in the “Freedmen’s Bureau, 10th Street Chapter” of Richmond, Virginia…these
were portraits of Sojourner Truth, Frederick Douglas and Harriet Tubman. The extant
portraits that we have represented other than a gentleman’s portrait painted on sheet
iron were found in the previously mentioned Georgia estate; we have a copy of the old-
time collector’ s obituary which may lead to a possible journey of discovery.
