ORIG Stephen Hickman Oil/Canvas Unicorn Painting Science Fiction Fantasy Art Done Covers For Heinlein Niven Pournelle McCaffrey etc.

Stephen Hickman has been illustrating science fiction and fantasy for three decades. His work is inspired by the masters of fantasy and science fiction writing — J.R.R. Tolkien, H.P. Lovecraft, A. Merritt, Edgar Rice Burroughs and Clark Ashton Smith.

His illustrations have been used as cover work for many contemporary writers: Stephen Brust, Hal Colbatch, Tom Cool, Gordon Dickson, David Drake, Harlan Ellison, Robert Heinlein, Anne McCaffrey, Larry Niven, Andre Norton, Jerry Pournelle, and Steve Stirling among others.

Hickman’s work has earned him critical acclaim, including a World Science Fiction Convention’s Hugo Award and 5 Chesley Awards from the Association of Science Fiction and Fantasy Artists.

Since 1976 Hickman has illustrated over 400 covers for Ace, Baen, Ballantine, Bantam, Berkeley, Dell, Del Rey, Doubleday, Phage Press, Tor, Warren Publications and others.

In 1988 Hickman wrote The Lemurian Stone (Ace Books), which formed the basis for his Pharazar Mythos illustrations, The Lion Pavillion, is one example, and is also reproduced along with The Archers, in the 1994 edition of Spectrum.

In 1994 he was awarded a Hugo Award from the World Science Fiction Convention for the United States Postal Service’s Space Fantasy Commemorative Booklet of stamps, the first official recognition by the government of the SF genre.

In 1996, Hickman created the Cthulhu statuette inspired by an earlier cover illustration done for H.P. Lovecraft’s story The Call of Cthulhu (Baen Books). The statuette was produced and distributed by Bowen Designs. A second edition is now available, as well as a bust of H.P. Lovecraft himself.

For those not familiar with Currier & Ives or perhaps just curious about them, here is a little history from Wikipedia:

Currier and Ives was a successful American printmaking firm headed by Nathaniel Currier (1813–1888) and James Merritt Ives (1824–1895). Based in New York City from 1834–1907, the prolific firm produced prints from paintings by fine artists as black and white lithographs that were hand colored. Lithographic prints could be reproduced quickly and purchased inexpensively, and the firm called itself “the Grand Central Depot for Cheap and Popular Prints” and advertised its lithographs as “colored engravings for the people.”

The name Currier & Ives first appeared in 1857, when Currier invited James Merritt Ives (1824–95), the company’s bookkeeper and accountant, to become his partner. James Merritt Ives, who was born on March 5, 1824 in New York City, married Caroline Clark in 1852. She was the sister-in-law of Nathaniel’s brother, Charles Currier, and it was Charles who recommended James Ives to his brother. Nathaniel Currier soon noticed Ives’s dedication to his business and his artistic knowledge and insight into what the public wanted. The younger man quickly became the general manager of the firm, handling the financial side of the business by modernizing the bookkeeping, reorganizing inventory, and streamlining the print process. Ives also helped Currier interview potential artists and craftsmen. The younger man had a flair for gauging popular interests and aided in selecting the images the firm would publish and expanding the firm’s range to include political satire, and sentimental scenes such as sleigh rides in the country and steamboat races. In 1857, Currier made Ives a full partner.

The firm Currier and Ives described itself as “Publishers of Cheap and Popular Prints”. At least 7,500 lithographs were published in the firm’s 72 years of operation. Artists produced two to three new images every week for 64 years (1834–1895), producing more than a million prints by hand-colored lithography. For the original drawings, Currier & Ives employed or used the work of many celebrated artists of the day including J.F. Butterworth, George Inness, Thomas Nast, C.H. Moore, and Eastman Johnson. The stars of the firm were Arthur Fitzwilliam Tait, who specialized in sporting scenes; Louis Maurer, who executed genre scenes; George H. Durrie, who supplied winter scenes; and Fanny Palmer, who liked to do picturesque panoramas of the American landscape, and who was the first woman in the United States to make her living as a full-time artist. All lithographs were produced on lithographic limestone printing plates on which the drawing was done by hand. A stone often took over a week to prepare for printing. Each print was pulled by hand. Prints were hand-colored by a dozen or more women, often immigrants from Germany with an art background, who worked in assembly-line fashion, one color to a worker, and who were paid $6 for every 100 colored prints. The favored colors were clear and simple, and the drawing was bold and direct.

http://yqz.me/taxes ORIG Antique Etching James Gillray British Political Satire Cartoon On Taxes yqz
The Battle Over Taxes NEVER Ends!

A political cartoon by the famous late 18th- early 19th century British cartoonist, James Gillray. This hand tinted print is framed and under glass, with a label on the back that indicates it was sold by the Fine Art Pictures and Framing department of John Wanamaker of Philadelphia, New York and Paris. One of the things that the Wanamaker Department store used to do was to take wonderful old prints and engravings and frame them, putting them for sale in the store. This would be one of those.

Some things just never change. One of those things is taxes. For some reason, those who collect taxes never have enough, and those who pay taxes never want to pay them. In this picture, attributed to James Gillray, two prosperous looking men are at the door of a small business man, who doesn’t have anywhere close to the same well fed and clothed appearance of the tax collectors at his door. The business man protests that he is being taxed to the point where he won’t have a house nor hole to put his head in, while the collectors below, who obviously know better, inform the taxpayer that he doesn’t need a house. He could move into the garret (attic) or the cellar, but the taxes must be paid, for the good of the dear country. On the right hand side, of the picture, you can see some shabbily dressed people at the “New Brewery for the Benefit of the Poor,” one fellow is at the pump handle, while another has his mouth under the spigot, sucking it in while the overflow is wasted in the street, creating a puddle where the tax collector stands. There is more to the print, which you can see in the photos, but that is most of the story. Doesn’t it sound like today’s headlines?

This is in very good to excellent condition, some mellowing of colors from age, but the mat and print are clean, ready to be displayed. It measures approx. 11″ by 13½”, the mat opening 6¼” by 8⅝”. What a great piece, a reminder that there is nothing new under the sun. Good Luck!

We found this little bit of a biography about James Gillray on the Original Political Cartoon website, a Great website:

Gillray, James (1756 – 1815)

James Gillray was the leading caricaturist of the late eighteenth century, and is generally recognised as the father of the political cartoon. Gillray worked exclusively for Hannah Humphrey, the younger sister of William Humphrey of Gerrard Street. Gillray’s engravings helped Humphrey become London’s leading print-seller. In 1793, Gillray starting living in a room above Hannah Humphrey’s shop in Old Bond Street. He also accompanied her when she moved to new premises in 1794 (New Bond Street) and 1797 (St James’s Street). Gillray appears to have held liberal views in his youth but after 1793 he became a supporter of William Pitt and the Tories. When a friend asked Gillray why his prints were so critical of the Whigs he replied: “they are poor, they do not buy my prints and I must draw on the purses of the larger parties.” Gillray’s cartoons were especially critical of Radicals such as Charles Fox.

We are putting them up in separate auctions over the next few weeks. Check back regularly to see what we get up. GOOD LUCK!!

In this auction we have a carved wood statue. We believe this is a Asante Tribe statue, the head is very much in the disc head style. This is most likely a fertility figure or doll, measuring approx. 12¾” tall. You can see the carved details that indicate that this is a female and a great carved design on the back of the disc head. You can see signs of age in odd discolored spots and a crack in the wood high on the head as well as other small dings and scratches. We found this paragraph about Akua’ba dolls on the Zyama website, a GREAT website:

Asante (Ashanti, Achanti, Ashante, Ashanti), Ghana

The early Asante economy depended on the trade of gold and enslaved peoples to Mande and Hausa traders, as well as to Europeans along the coast. In return for acting as the middlemen in the slave trade, the Asante received firearms, which were used to increase their already dominant power, and various luxury goods that were incorporated into Asante symbols of status and political office. The forest surrounding the Asante served as an important source of kola nuts, which were sought after for gifts and used as a mild stimulant among the Muslim peoples to the north. In traditional Asante society, in which inheritance was through the maternal line, a woman’s essential role was to bear children, preferably girls.

Fertility Statue  http://yqz.me/Fertility-Statue

Fertility Statue http://yqz.me/Fertility-Statue

Akua’ba doll. The Ashanti region of southern Ghana is a remnant of the Ashanti Empire, which was founded in the early 17th century when, according to legend, a golden stool descended from heaven into the lap of the first king, Osei Tutu. In traditional Ashanti society, in which inheritance was through the maternal line, a woman’s essential role was to bear children, preferably girls to continue the matrilineage. Fertility and children are the most frequent themes in the wooden sculptures of the Asante. Such are akua’ba fertility figures. The akua’ba are dolls with disk-shaped heads embodying their concept of beauty and carried by women who want to become pregnant and to deliver a beautiful child. The fame of these objects derives from a legend asserting that a woman who has worn one will give birth to a particularly beautiful daughter. A Ghanaian source indicates another use: when a child disappeared, the akua’ba was placed with food and silver coins at the edge of the forest to attract the malevolent spirit responsible: the spirit would then exchange the child for the statue.

Purple Heart and WWII Bronze Star http://yqz.me/purple-heart

History of the purple heart from http://www.thepurpleheart.com/

The award known as the Purple Heart has a history that reaches back to the waning days of the American Revolution. The Continental Congress had forbidden General George Washington from granting commissions and promotions in rank to recognize merit. Yet Washington wanted to honor merit, particularly among the enlisted soldiers. On August 7, 1782, his general orders established the Badge of Military Merit:

“… The General ever desirous to cherish virtuous ambition in his soldiers, as well as to foster and encourage every species of Military merit directs whenever any singularly meritorious action is performed, the author of it shall be permitted to wear on his facings, over his left breast, the figure of a heart in purple cloth or silk edged with narrow lace or binding.”
This award was open only to enlisted men and granted them the distinction of being permitted to pass all guards and sentinels as could commissioned-officers. The names of the recipients were to have been kept in a “Book of Merit” (which has never been recovered). At the present time there are three known recipients of the Badge of Military Merit: Sergeant Elijah Churchill, 2nd Continental Dragoons; Sergeant William Brown, 5th and Sergeant Daniel Bissel, 2nd Connecticut Continental Line Infantry.

Washington stated that the award was to be a permanent one, but once the Revolution ended, the Badge of Merit was all but forgotten until the 20th century.

General John J. “Blackjack” Pershing suggested a need for an award for merit in 1918, but it was not until 1932 that the Purple Heart was created in recognition of Washington’s ideals and for the bicentennial of his birth. General Order No.3 announced the establishment of the award:
“…By order of the President of the United States, the Purple Heart, established by General George Washington at Newburgh, August 7, 1782, during the War of the Revolution is hereby revived out of respect to his memory and military achievements.

By order of the Secretary of War:
Douglas MacArthur
General, Chief of Staff

On May 28, 1932, 138 World War I veterans were conferred their Purple Hearts at Temple Hill, in New Windsor, NY. Temple Hill was the site of the New

Purple Heart WWII http://yqz.me/purple-heart

Purple Heart WWII http://yqz.me/purple-heart

Windsor Cantonment, which was the final encampment of the Continental Army in the winter of 1782-1783. Today, the National Purple Heart continues the tradition begun here in 1932, of honoring veterans who have earned the Purple Heart.
The Purple Heart has undergone many changes with respect to the criteria for being awarded. At first, the Purple Heart was exclusively awarded to Army and Army Air Corps personnel and could not be awarded posthumously to the next of kin. In 1942, President Franklin Roosevelt signed an executive order allowing the Navy to award the Purple Heart to Sailors, Marines, and Coast Guard personnel. Also in that year, the Purple Heart was made available for posthumous award to any member of the military killed on or after December 7, 1941.

Originally the Purple Heart was awarded for meritorious service. Being wounded was one portion of consideration for merit. With the creation of the Legion of Merit in 1942, the award of the Purple Heart for meritorious service became unnecessary and was therefore discontinued. The Purple Heart, per regulation is awarded in the name of the President of the United States to any member of the Armed Forces of the United States who, while serving under competent authority in any capacity with one of the U.S. Armed Services after April 5, 1917 has been wounded, killed, or has died after being wounded.
