Descripción

Mottled blue cloth, black calf backstrip; oblong, 175 x 127; contains 18 pencil drawings, most of them titled and dated. It includes landscapes of the Catskill Mountains; studies of clouds, waterfalls, and tree and rock formations; a farm scene; "The great whist game" (image of 4 men at a table, playing cards); "Prairie Fire in Dakota, Night" (the artist was very well-traveled); and 5 portraits. Spine tips chipped; edges of boards lightly scuffed; a few leaves neatly excised; one leaf loose, laid-in. Nicely acccomplished works, most of them on one side of the leaf (therefore, removable, and suitable for display). Harley DeWitt Nichols (1859-1939) was born in Barton, Wisconsin. He began his education in art as early as 11 years of age. His first job putting his talent and training to use came in the form of an apprenticeship with the Milwaukee firm Marr & Richards, where he stayed for 3 years, drawing and engraving on wood. The subsequent years included many moves, from Milwaukee to Chicago, and later to New York, where he studied at ASL and was encouraged by Professor Packard to pursue a career as an illustrator at a European school. Nichols left for Munich in October 1885 to attend the Royal Academy, where he studied under Heckel, became a member of the American Club, and socialized with Carl von Marr, the club’s president. He went to London for a little while, and worked as an illustrator. By 1893 he’d returned to New York, working mostly in advertising, and illustrating for Harper’s Weekly and Century magazines. He helped organize the New York Water Color Club. Nichols didn’t curb his parapatetic lifestyle until he moved to Laguna Beach, California, in 1894. The art community in Los Angeles was in its infancy, but he got a teaching job at the Echo Mountain summer school, and he was inspired by the scenery of Yosemite, Monterey, San Juan Capistrano, and other locations in southern California. He stayed in Laguna Beach until his death in 1939. N° de ref. de la librería JC11167
