Art piece measures 27.25" w x 22.25" t. Good antique condition, slight wear, no major defects. If professionally cleaned the color would really pop.
Please feel free to ask questions. This piece came out of the Holt/Witherspoon Estate in Nashville. The estate goes back to the early 1800's. Albert Marquet Albert Marquet was born in Bordeaux, 26 March 1875; died in Paris, 14 June 1947.
He was taken by his family to Paris at the early age of fifteen to begin a thorough training as an artist. Albert Marquet studied at the Ecole des Beaux-Arts, where he met Henri Matisse in 1890.
Matisse became a life-long friend; both artists were accepted in Gustav Moreau's painting class in 1897. In 1900 they worked together on the decoration of the Grand Palais at the Paris World Exhibition.
Marquet's first paintings of this period, with their decorative, bright colours, are strongly influenced by the Fauves. He participated in a group exhibition with Matisse, Derain and Vlaminck at the'Salon d'Automne' in 1905. John and Isabella Holt were the first of their family to settle in the area.
Their son, Thomas Holt, who became a prosperous cotton planter in Louisiana, bought the Witherspoon land, and many more surrounding acres, in the 1800s, according to a 2014 statement of expected finds. From a consulting firm hired to do historical research about the site.
Around 1835, he built a summer home on the land for he and his wife, Julia Herbert Holt. The house, known historically as the Holtland/Wildwood home, eventually became the familys primary residence and the central structure of a 1,200-acre plantation that was powered by 100 slaves and included a saw mill, a cotton gin and a grist mill. Thomas Holts grandson, John Page Holt, lived at Holtland/Wildwood with his wife, ODelle K. Charles Witherspoon III, their nephew, grew up in the home as well, but closed it up in 1965 due to its long list of maintenance issues and moved to a different property on his familys land. He shared his memories of what it was like to grow up in the big old mansion, for a previous Home page story.I didnt find it lonely at all, he said. I was able to entertain myself pretty much riding horses and ponies, riding bicycle. Playing around in the big woodpile in the back. I used to enjoy playing out there jumping from log to log, that kind of thing. Id invent games and things to do to pass the time. He died that same year. Witherspoons aunt, ODelle Holt, lived on a property on the familys remaining land until her death in 1993. She left part of the property to Witherspoon in the form of a life estate. Witherspoon decided to sell the land a few years back.
