KANSAS CITY, MO.- Rachael Cozad Fine Art announces the company’s sponsorship of the George Caleb Bingham Catalogue Raisonné Supplement. In conjunction with their sponsorship, Rachael Cozad Fine Art is exhibiting four paintings by Bingham (three recently discovered) that appear in the new Catalogue and have never been publicly shown: Baiting the Hook, Horse Thief, and portraits of Miss Sarah Helen Rollins and L.A.D. Crenshaw.

Since 2005, fifteen newly authenticated paintings by Bingham have been added to his established body of some 500 recorded paintings, many of which are still unlocated. While the majority of Bingham’s paintings are portraits, more than fifty are paintings of the American scene and landscapes. Shooting for the Beef (Brooklyn Museum), Fur Traders Descending the Missouri (Metropolitian Museum of Art), and Jolly Flatboatmen in Port (St. Louis Art Museum) are among Bingham’s widely celebrated masterpieces of American Art.

Rachael Cozad, a private Kansas City, Missouri art dealer and appraiser, represents 19th and 20th century American art and has a special focus on George Caleb Bingham (1811-1879), often referred to as “The Missouri Artist.”

In 1986, E. Maurice Bloch first published The Paintings of George Caleb Bingham: A Catalogue Raisonné, in conjunction with University of Missouri Press. In that rigorous catalogue Bloch documented all of Bingham’s known paintings at the time of publication. Twenty years later, in 2005, The George Caleb Bingham Catalogue Raisonné Supplement (GCBCRS) was established by Santa Fe art historian Fred R. Kline through Kline Art Research Associates. The project is an ingoing work-in-progress directed at updating Bloch’s publication and continuing the high standard of scholarship on Bingham’s life and work that Bloch had set forth. The Bingham CRS Committee was organized by Kline, as Director and Editor, with a distinguished Advisory Board of art historians consisting of Bingham biographer and American historian Paul C. Nagel, Ph.D. (1926-2011), Art History Professor William Kloss, M.A. who, among many honors and achievements, served for ten years on the Committee for the Preservation of the White House. Lisa Fellows Andrus-Rivera, Ph.D.—noted author, lecturer, and Professor of Art History—has recently been appointed to the CRS Committee. Dr. Andrus-Rivera received her B.A. with honors in Art History in 1967 from Barnard College, New York, and later earned her M.A. and Ph.D. from Columbia University, New York. She was a professor of Art History for twenty-three years at Portland State University where she was awarded Professor Emeritus in 1999. Lecturing and teaching widely throughout her career, Andrus-Rivera has published many papers, including the highly acclaimed “Design and Measurement in Luminist Art.” Her widely influential Measure and Design in American Painting was first published in 1977 and a second-edition was published in 1997.

George Caleb Bingham (1811-1879) is recognized today as one of the most important 19th century American artists. He is distinguished among the first generation of painters of the early American West for his classic narrative scenes drawn from his actual observation and experience. Bingham did not sign many of his paintings; in fact, it is estimated that he signed fewer than five percent of his works. His unsigned paintings and his lack of record-keeping allowed many unsigned works to slip into obscurity and today remain unlocated and unidentified. Such was the case with Horse Thief, Baiting the Hook and thirteen other Bingham paintings that have been identified and authenticated since the completion of Bloch’s Catalogue Raisonné of Paintings in 1986.

Rachael Blackburn Cozad was formerly director and CEO of the Kemper Museum of Contemporary Art in Kansas City, Missouri (2001-2012). Prior to this, Cozad was Executive Director and Curator of the Iris & B. Gerald Cantor Foundation in Los Angeles, which holds the world’s largest collection of sculpture by French master Auguste Rodin (1840-1917). She holds a M.A. in art history from California State University, Los Angeles, and a B.A. from Texas Christian University. She has curated exhibitions for many major museums including the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Brooklyn Museum of Art, Los Angeles County Museum of Art, Philadelphia Museum of Art, and the Kemper Museum of Contemporary Art. She has led major projects at The White House and New York’s Rockefeller Center and internationally, in Australia, France, Russia and Singapore. Her record of publications produced in conjunction with these exhibitions is extensive and include, most recently, Wyeth: Three Generations of Artistry and The Kemper Museum of Contemporary Art: The First Ten Years as well as two authoritative books on Rodin, Rodin: A Magnificent Obsession (the Catalogue Raisonné of the Cantor holdings) and Rodin’s Monument to Victor Hugo.
