Watercolor on Paper

8 3/4 x 6 1/2 in.

Circa 1910


Acquired from the artist, thence by decent,

Acquired by Julius R. Wolf from the Estate of Paul J. Tillich (Hanna Tillich), East Hampton, New York, 1973

Sold from Estate of Julius R. Wolf (by the direction of Mr. Frank Burton, Collection Manager) to Rose Vagavich, 1982


I.                   This work has been scientifically tested by Bernhard M. Castle using both UV Light Testing and Pigment Intrusion Testing. Via the pigment intrusion test, the age of the materials used in this artwork prove to be from C. 1900 to C. 1930.  From the results of the UV test, there have been no evident alterations to the work since C.1930 .  The signature does not appear to ?float?, indicating that it most likely was applied at the time of creation of work as a whole. 

II.                   Julius R. Wolf was first introduced to the wife of Liberal, Protestant Theologian Paul J. Tillich in 1967.  By 1969 the friendship between Julius Wolf and Hanna had flourished to include weekly visits and short trips to the tropics.  In 1973 Mr. Wolf proposed the purchase of a considerable number of artworks that Mrs. Tillich and her late husband had collected throughout the course of their lifetime travels.

Julius R. Wolf was born in Cincinnati, the son of Businessman (department store owner), and Art Collector. During his childhood, young Julius attended a series of parochial schools in the Cincinnati area, only to go on to serve in World War II. After Wolf returned from the War, he earned a Bachelor of Arts degree from Dartmouth in 1951. In 1968, he met his future life partner, Artist, Ian Hornak while shopping at the famed Bergdorf Goodman?s in New York, and by 1969 Wolf and Hornak had taken up residence together at their jointly owned weekend home in East Hampton, New York. Wolfs Parents died in the early portion of the 1950?s and left their only son, Julius their significant collection of Fine Art and Antiques. Wolf worked as a prominent casting director for numerous important broadcasting companies along the eastern seaboard of the United States between 1952 and 1978, including NBC, CBS, and PBS; Latter in his life, he moved to performing freelance directorial work on such sets as ?The West Side Story?, his occupational focus tended to be on Dramatic Theatrical Productions. As a longtime resident of East Hampton (Handscreek Road), and a member of the extremely prestigious ?Players Club? of New York City, Wolf came to meet and ultimately befriend many of the most important artists of the twentieth century such as Willem De Kooning, Elaine de Kooning, Jackson Pollock, Lee Krasner, Josef Albers, John Ferren, Adolph Gottlieb, Lester Johnson, Joan Mitchell, Alfonso Ossorio, Ray Parker, Fairfield Porter, Saul Steinberg, Jack Youngerman, Andy Warhol, Ben Burns, Lowell Nesbitt, Hans Hofmann, Louis Nevelson, Philip Guston, Robert Motherwell, Frank Stella, Robert Indiana, Phillip Barry, Truman Capote, Leonard Bernstein, Elmer Bernstein, Virgil Thompson, and David Smith among many others. Julius R. Wolf died unexpected as a result of an asthma attack in his apartment at 26 West 63rd Street in New York City in 1978.  Wolfs legacy is preserved through his bequest of 95 works of art to the Hood Museum at Dartmouth College in New Hampshire.  The remaining portion of the Collection was dispersed to various friends upon his death, is now owned by two avid collectors from the Midwestern United States who intend to publish a catalogue at the end of the decade of the works known to have been known to have owned by Julius R. Wolf, the catalogue is expected to be published in multiple volumes.
