Watercolor. 12-3/4" x 9-3/4". No date. Signed by Cummings at the lower left with "Pornic" written in his hand on the lower right. Cummings visited Pornic, a seaside village on the French Atlantic coast, and painted a number of outdoor scenes while he was there, frequently of French peasants at their work. This painting was part of an exhibit at the Gotham Book Mart some time in the late '60s or '70s and bears their notation "GBM #412" on verso. Although a prolific painter, Cummings seldom signed his work. [#026723] $5,000
A stylized portrait by Cummings of Marion Morehouse, renowned New York model and Cummings' third wife -- and a frequent subject of the artist's work. Cummings, one of the best-loved American poets of the 20th century, was also a prolific visual artist: he considered writing and painting to be his "twin obsessions," and he exhibited his work in the annual Society of Independent Artists shows from 1916-1927 and was the art editor of the Dial magazine, the pre-eminent Modernist literary journal in the U.S., in the 1920s. In 1933 he published a book of his artwork in a limited edition. Called CIOPW, it took its title from the media he used in his art: charcoal, ink, oil, pencil and watercolors. In his early years he emphasized abstract painting; from the 1930s on he tended toward representational images, albeit with a range of inventive palettes, as this painting shows, and which some have compared to his inventiveness with words and poetic forms and structures. 9" x 11-1/4", oil on cardboard. In fact, this is painted on the underside of the top of a box that held typewriter paper -- a linking of his twin obsessions. Undated. Edges a bit chipped, with a couple of creases but very good condition overall. [#029553] $5,000
Oil on canvas. 16" x 12". Summer on Chocorua. No date. [#031571] $5,000
A landscape painting by Cummings of a colorful tree on the shore of Silver Lake in New Hampshire, where the Cummings family had a summer home. In the background is Mount Chocorua, one of the most frequent subjects of Cummings' artwork. The use of a bright and vivid palette is reminiscent of Matisse, Kandinsky, and the Fauvists, all of whom have been cited as influences on Cummings as an artist. Thematically and as a composition, this image also owes a debt to Cezanne, one of Cummings' great idols as a painter and an influence, as he said, on both his and other Modernist writers' poetry and fiction by virtue of his providing "a new way of seeing things." In Cummings' work one can almost see an echo of Cezanne, with Cummings' frequent and varied depictions of Mount Chocorua echoing Cezanne's repeated returns to Mont Saint-Victoire as a subject for his paintings. 8-3/4" x 11-1/2", oil on cardboard. Painted on the underside of the cover of a box of his typewriter paper. Undated. Edges slightly rough, and a few random water spots on the image; overall very good condition. [#029554] $5,000
