CHICAGO, IL.- Hindman will present property from the collection of Frances G. Scaife as a highlight of its December 7th American & European Art auction. Mrs. Scaife’s collection of 19th century dog paintings is one of the most significant private collections of these paintings held in the United States. A lover of all animals, Mrs. Scaife has been a collector of English dog paintings for many years. Known in New York and Palm Beach for her keen eye and sense of style, this collection is a result of Mrs. Scaife’s strong curatorial vision.

The 14 paintings from the Scaife collection offer a comprehensive survey of the types of dog painting that developed over the course of the nineteenth century, including portraiture, scenes of the hunt, and images imbued with sentimentality.

Highlighting the group will be John Sargent Noble’s 1891 Off Duty (lot 36; estimate: $50,000-70,000), which is among the most impressive paintings of its type to come to auction in recent years due to its scale and content. John Frederick Herring the Elder’s 1839 painting Clio (lot 35; estimate: $60,000-80,000) is the earliest work in the group, and also considered to be the most quintessential of its type. While known primarily as a painter of horses, this portrait of a greyhound shows Herring’s skill in depicting other animals.

Additional portraiture highlights include Alexander Pope’s English Setters, 1891 (lot 38; estimate: $50,000-70,000) and Maud Earl’s Four Friends, 1893 (lot 34; estimate: $30,000-50,000). Arthur Wardle’s Look Out! (lot 42; estimate: $10,000 - $15,000) is a strong example of a dog in action, while John Emms’ In the Kennel (lot 40; estimate: $5,000-7,000) is a striking sentimental work.

Hindman will also present furniture and decorative arts from the Scaife collection in its December 8th Palm Beach Collections sale and additional fine art in its February 22nd Palm Beach Fine Art sale.
