Iconic "Indian Rider" To Be Sold

William Robinson Leigh's Painting In Heritage’s May 7 American Art Sale

Offered for the first time at auction, William Robinson Leigh's monumental “Indian Rider,” 1918, is expected to exceed $400,000 on Saturday, May 7, in Heritage Auctions' spring American Art Auction in Dallas, Texas. With its expressive force, dramatic movement, bold color, and compositional integrity, this dynamic masterwork has been held in private hands for the last century and will be offered alongside legendary works across California, Western and Illustration Art.
"This auction defines the term 'fresh to market'," said Aviva Lehmann, Director of American Art. "The selection we've assembled includes fresh works never before seen at auction - many of which embody the height of these artists' talents. For institutions and advanced collectors, this is a must-watch sale."
In the arena of Illustration Art, the original promotional art for the 1960 film "Cinderfella" (est. $300,000-$500,000) is making its auction debut. Conceptualized by the film's star and producer, the artwork embodies the artistic collaboration of two American legends: illustrator Norman Rockwell and comedian Jerry Lewis. It has remained in Lewis' collection since Rockwell presented it to him in 1960. As the producer, Lewis oversaw every artistic and marketing detail of Cinderfella. "My whole idea was to get an icon in the world of art and have that icon sell the movie," Lewis says in an interview filmed for Heritage Auctions.
Another important Rockwell painting in the auction is his classic “Portrait of a Young Boy,” circa 1955 (est. $100,000-$150,000). Possibly intended for a Crest toothpaste advertisement, few subjects capture the artist's mid-century appeal than his illustration portraits of children and adolescents. "’Portrait of a Young Boy’ personifies post-World War II mainstream values of wholesomeness, good manners, and a clean-cut appearance," said Lehmann. "Besides being just a wonderful representation of idealism, hard work, and family, the portrait is rare in that it was never published and could be an early study for one of Rockwell's most successful campaigns, the ‘Look, Mom, no Cavities!’ ads for Crest toothpaste."
The auction will also include an extraordinary selection of Western and California art. "Ranging from the early west to the Taos school, there is a sliver of western history for everyone." said Alissa Ford, Director of Western and California Art.
Highlighting the Taos Artists is Ernest Blumenschein's “Aspen in the Square” (est. $150,000-$250,000). “‘Aspen in the Square’ is truly a remarkable work by Blumenschein," said Ford. "Its perspective leads us to believe that we are not necessarily a part of the procession, rather an onlooker, observing the life of the locals."
Additional Taos School highlights will include Victor Higgins “Lower Hondo-Spring” (est. $60,000-$80,000), Leon Gaspard's “Festival of the Eagles” (est. $60,000-$80,000), and Laverne Nelson Black's “Burros in Winter, Taos” (est. $40,000-$60,000).
With a strong selection of Impressionism, three large-scale Birger Sandzens take the stage. Highlighting the trio, “Lake at Sunset, Colorado,” 1921 ranks among the artist's most significant landscape paintings (est. $300,000-$400,000). Appearing at auction directly from a Midwestern institution and measuring a grand 80-by-60-inches, Sandzén's masterwork firmly ranks the artist among the finest of America's plein air painters.
Amongst the impressive grouping of California impressionist paintings are Maurice Braun's large scale masterwork “Autumn” (est. $50,000-$70,000), Benjamin Brown's “Golden Poppies near Mount San Jacinto” (est. $25,000-$35,000) and Marion Wachtel's “Autumn, San Jancinto Canyon” (est. $15,000-$25,000). Each of these delicately handled works convey the iconic beauty of the California landscape.
Cyrus Edwin Dallin's bronze, “Appeal to the Great Spirit,” 1913, from the estate of Richard D. Bass, the first man to climb the "Seven Summits," the tallest mountains on each continent will be estimated at $50,000-$70,000.
Thomas Hill's large composition of Yosemite (est. $60,000-$80,000) a superb late 19th century depiction of the famed national park will also be included.
