Portrait from Life attributed to John Johnston
Minister Simeon Howard (1733-1804)
Rev War Activist
Boston
Advocate for Right to Bear Arms (2nd Amendment)
Oil on canvas - SOLD


Portrait from Life attributed to John Johnston
Minister Simeon Howard (1733-1804), entire view

Simeon Howard was minister of the West Church, Boston, (1767-1775) and defines the importance of West Church in the events leading to the American Revolutionary War. Howard left briefly in 1775 for Nova Scotia, with many of his parishioners, to avoid British retaliation, but returned after a year and a half. Of significant importance is A Sermon Preached to the Ancient and Honorable Artillery-Company, in Boston, New-England, June 7th, 1773. Being the Anniversary of Their Election of Officers, by Simeon Howard, A.M. Pastor of the West Church in Boston. The sermon is regarded as a call to arms justifying the right to take up arms against an oppressor, and Howard is generally touted as one of the big 3 (Adams, Howard, and Paine) when is comes to precursors, proponents, and justifications for our Second Amendment. In modern times, Howard is often cited in NRA literature on the right to bear arms. Howard is a significant figure to Boston, and in the founding of our country.
The portrait remains in generally excellent condition on original stretcher; lightly cleaned and stabilized. (Frame: 28.25 x 33.25 inches; view: 24.25 x 29.25 inches)

Portraits Of A Rhode Island Couple
Attributed William W. Kennedy
Oil On Canvas
Circa-1840's - SOLD


Portraits Of A Rhode Island Couple
Attributed William W. Kennedy
Oil On Canvas
Circa-1840's, entire view

These paintings were purportedly found in southern Rhode Island; based on the consignors receipt...what we can guarantee is that they are without compromise. Stylistically the sitters clothing falls within the period that Kennedy worked at New Bedford, Massachusetts that borders Rhode Island. In the flat style with characteristics common to Kennedy's1 hand...bright eyed, pristine skin-tones and general attitude. The paintings are mounted in appropriate gilt frames of the period that measure 25 by 21-inches.

1There are less than twenty signed examples of Kennedy's portraits extant-approximately 40 others have been found that closely resemble the documented works. Stylistically, Kennedy's crisp, flat likenesses strongly resemble the Prior and Hamblen portraits. His likenesses are distinguished by consistent portrayal of his sitters with steeply sloping shoulders, squared noses, and small, pursed lips. Characteristic of his portrait-painting style is excessive shading around the nose and a single dark line between the lips.

329-5 - SOLD




Portrait of Two Boys

The siblings hold a bouquet together in their left hands, the older boy's right hand rests on the younger boys shoulder while the younger boy reaches into a basket of fruit beside him-a depiction of unity and childhood innocence. The background is in muted earth tones and is unsigned; the date "1836" is inscribed on the reverse in black paint. The work is mounted within its original molded gilt gesso frame with an arched mat. The picture descended in the Diman family of Bristol, Rhode Island and remains in very good original condition. (48-inches x 38.75-inches framed.)
