SHELDON PECK (1797–1868)
Portraits of a Man and Woman, Painted About 1828
Oil on wood panel,
25"x 19 15/16”


SHELDON PECK (1797–1868) Portraits of a Man and Woman, Painted About 1828 Oil on wood panel

RECORDED: Marianne E. Balazs, Sheldon Peck, exhibition catalog (Whitney Museum of American Art, New York, 1975-76), the gentleman is number 13; the woman is catalog number 14.
EXHIBITED: Hirschl & Adler Folk, New York, Source and Inspiration, A Continuing Tradition, 1988, pp. 51 no. 27, 34 illus. in color // Hirschl & Adler Galleries, New York, 1991, American Folk Art, Selections from the Hirschl & Adler Collections, no. 48a
EX COLLECTION: acquired from descendants of the sitters in Cato, New York; to Mr. and Mrs. Richard Bury; to [William Samaha, Wellesley Hills, Massachusetts] Sheldon Peck was born in Cornwall, Vermont, one of eleven children of early settlers. It is thought that he received no formal art training, and his works are not signed. However, his portraits are easily identifiable and fall into three distinct stages within his life: Vermont, until about 1827-28; Onondaga County, New York, from 1828 until 1836; and the Chicago, Illinois, area until his death in 1868.
Peck's general portrait style is characterized by rather stiffly posed subjects, a frontal position, prominent staring eyes, and strongly defined facial planes. All his Vermont and New York portraits were painted on wood panels, and most have plain dark backgrounds. This half-length Portrait of a Man was painted while Sheldon Peck was in New York State. This Portrait of a Gentleman from his New York period is one of a group of four family members. Excellent condition…please call or email Dave for more information, 978-597-8084 or drh@aaawt.com (1300-2)

Oil on panel, entire view

An agreeable bust length portrait of a woman depicted with sloping shoulders wearing a lace collar and bonnet topped with a blue bow, tied with a blue ribbon. The subject holds a copy of The Mother At Home. On the reverse of the board are traces of a sketch in white paint depicting a boy holding a whip, wearing a jacket with two rows of buttons. Two battens on the reverse are original and prevented the panel from serious warping which is so often the case. As depicted, there is a fine craquelure and the expected ever-so-slight bow...no cracks and no apparent restoration to the painting. (23.25-inches x 28.5-inches.)
Interestingly, The Mother At Home or The Principals Of Maternal Duty was written at Worcester, Massachusetts in 1833.

Vintage Portrait, African American Gentleman by African American Georgia Artist, Signed: Spencer
Oil on sheet iron, entire view

All we know is that “SPENCER” was likely a nomadic portraitist traveling the Southern United States at the
turn of the twentieth century through the 1920s and 1930s. We sold this portrait of a gentleman some years
ago and are very pleased to present the work. We know of approximately eight extant works, all depicting
African American Subjects; all signed SPRNCER in brick red paint. The extant portraits other than the
gentleman were found in a Georgia estate; we have a copy of the old-time collector’s obituary to lead on a
possible journey of discovery. (Frame: 14.5" x 11"; view: 12" x 9")

The Provocative Image Compels Emotional Participation
Oil on artist board - SOLD


Vintage Portrait, Stunning Black Woman by African American Georgia Artist, Signed: Spencer
The Provocative Image Compels Emotional Participation 
Oil on artist board, sans frame

All we know is that “SPENCER” was likely a nomadic portraitist traveling the Southern United States at the
turn of the twentieth century through the 1920s and 1930s. We sold the portrait of gentleman published
herewith some years ago, also by “SPENCER”. We know of approximately eight extant works, all depicting
African American Subjects; all signed SPRNCER in brick red paint. The extant portraits other than the
gentleman were found in a Georgia estate; we have a copy of the old-time collector’s obituary to lead on a
possible journey of discovery. (Fine original condition; frame: 18" x 14.5"; view: 13.5" x 11")

Portrait of Graceful Young Woman, Half Length in Green Velvet Wrap
English School in the Circle of Frederick Kerseboom (1632 to 1693), entire view

An attractive work depicting an elegant lady wearing competently rendered fine and expensive silk, velvet and lace.

The canvas was mounted on a second canvas and stretcher during the late eighteenth or early nineteenth century; the most minor in-painting to a few scattered abrasions.
