Louis Valtat - Blue Vase with Guelder Roses, 1908
Louis Valtat (French, 1869 - 1952)
Vase Bleu, boules de neige
signed lower left: L Valtat

A leading founder of the Fauvist movement, Louis Valtat was an independent and versatile painter. Fauvist principles required a total liberation of local color in favor of palette of unmixed paint used straight from the tube, often applied with firm, even violent brushwork. Forms are simplified and flattened, giving precedence to a patterned, decorative surface.
 
Rare Grouping of Theorem Desk Boxes New York State, ca. 1830
Watercolor on velvet on pasteboard D-shaped theorem boxes, with braided borders, the pasteboards joined by sewn-thread in the manner of early wallpaper boxes. The mid-size box is particularly beautiful, with delicate basket, fruit, and foliage on the lid, and crisp leaves about the body. The lids are fitted with padding under the velvet, perhaps suggesting use as pincushions, or perhaps just for feel. They have a wonderful presence.
