For today's #GeorgianJanuary theme of #pink - I've always loved how the sitter in this portrait stares so directly from the painting without even a hint of coyness. Her manner reminds me of the American portraits by John Singleton Copley that also have the same "here I am" quality. Her lace-trimmed cap and dress - that silk bow! - are so beautifully detailed. This is one of those 18thc portraits where I'm very aware of the straight-backed posture encouraged by her stays. She doesn't look uncomfortable, but she's not slouching, either.

Lynette Yiadom Boakye dazzled New York with her solo show at the New Museum, she returns to the city with 35 new paintings. Both Jack Shainman galleries are showing the oil on linen paintings. Her invented tribe of young, black, mostly male subjects are united by both steadfast gaze and a loose, confident brushstroke. With an almost AbEx freedom, the English born, Ghanian artist creates work with appealing emotional expressionism. Read Full Review on Artlyst @jackshainman #lynetteyiadomboakye

The Fine Art Society at Sotheby’s
An Auction to Celebrate 142 years on New Bond Street

James Abbott McNeill Whistler
The Dog on the Kennel, Executed in 1858.
Etching with plate tone, a good impression of this rare subject, Kennedy's only state, Glasgow's second (final) state, on laid paper
Plate: 7 by 8.8cm.; 2 3/4 by 3 1/2 in.; Sheet: 15.5 by 19.4cm.; 6 1/8 by 7 5/8 in.

This was drawn during Whistler’s tour of the Rhineland in search of subjects for etchings to be published in the French Set, between 14th August and 7th October 1858. Both the kennel and the dog were also depicted in The Unsafe Tenement. Frederick Wedmore recorded that Whistler was working on the larger plate when the dog jumped up on the kennel, but put it aside to make the small study. This information came from Samuel P. Avery, whose Whistler collection is in the New York Public Library, and who first met the artist in 1867. The etching has been rarely exhibited but was lent by Avery to the Union League Club in New York in 1881.

William Slater Mycock
Bottle Vase, Made in 1926.
Lustred ceramic, signed and dated, impressed factory marks

Born in Handford, Staffordshire, 1872, William Mycock spent his early years working in the painters’ shop at Wedgwood before joining Pilkington. He was the longest serving artist employed at Pilkington, starting as a tile artist in 1894 and retiring in 1938, the year the pottery section closed down after production had ceased. The year this vase was designed, the pottery production was very limited due to the post-war economic climate and lusterware in particular due to the complexity of its process and its luxury. However, Mycock, as one of the last remaining established artists of Pilkington in the post-war era, was able to sustain the production of lusterware, winning a gold medal in Paris in 1925 for his lusterware.

An Auction to Celebrate 142 years on New Bond Street

James Abbott McNeill Whistler
The Rialto, Executed between 1879 and 1880
Signed with the butterfly with shaded wings and inscribed imp in pencil (on the tab at lower left)
Etching with drypoint, printing with plate tone, an atmospheric, selectively wiped impression of Kennedy and Glasgow's first state (of three), on laid paper with a WW watermark

Only two other impressions of The Rialto in the first state are recorded (The Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Freer Gallery of Art). The artist’s vantage point has been identified as a first-floor window above the Sottoportico Pirieta in the Campo San Bartolomeo, San Marco.
The pencil signature of a large butterfly with veined wings would also indicate that this is an early printing of the etching, first exhibited at The Fine Art Society in 1883 in Arrangement in White and Yellow (no.41) before publication in the Second Venice Set, in 1886.

The Fine Art Society at Sotheby’s
An Auction to Celebrate 142 years on New Bond Street

Attributed to Edward William Godwin (for Collinson and Lock)
Rare Seven-Legged Centre Table, Executed circa 1872-1875.
Mahogany
68.3 by 68cm diameter.; 26 7/8 by 26 3/4 in.

This is the only known seven-legged version of Godwin’s eight-legged design for William Watt. As Soros notes: ‘Its reeded edge, turned decoration, and slightly splayed legs all point to the work of Godwin.’ Its lack of extraneous ornament, proto-modernist form and overall decorative qualities come purely from the interplay of its minimal and refined structural elements. Godwin remarked that ‘It is essential that the common objects of everyday life should be quiet, simple and unobtrusive in their beauty’.
A pencil and gouache drawing for a related eight-legged version is in the permanent collection of the Victoria and Albert Museum, London under accession number E.494-1963.
