CRANSTON, R.I. - eTradeWire -- A painting by the Dutch Impressionist Siebe Johannes Ten Cate (1858-1908) sold for $4,688, and a jazz-themed lithograph by the renowned African American artist Romare Howard Bearden (N.Y./N.C., 1911-1988) hit $2,125, in an Estate Fine Art & Antiques Auction held August 27th by Bruneau & Co. Auctioneers, live in the Cranston gallery and online.

"The Siebe Johannes Ten Cate painting was the surprise of the day," said Travis Landry, a Bruneau & Co. auctioneer and the firm's Director of Pop Culture. "We knew the subject matter was strong for the artist but recent records had been depressed. This certainly shows the market is there for good imagery." The painting was the top earner of the 344 lots that came up for bid.

The work, a fine example of Dutch Impressionism, depicted a fisherman on the bank of a river outside a city beneath a bright blue sky. It was housed in the original period carved wood frame that still had an old exhibition label on recto. The board was 10 ½ inches by 13 ¾ inches; the frame was 18 ½ inches by 21 ¼ inches. The painting was signed and dated "Ten Cate 1903".

Although Dutch by birth, Siebe Johannes Ten Cate spent most of his working life in France. Van Gogh was an acquaintance; he once described Ten Cate as "a very neat man, completely dressed in black cloth, and not at all like a typical poor artist." His favorite subjects were landscapes, city and harbor views. He also made some etchings and lithographs. He was revered in France but, remarkably, was mostly neglected in the Netherlands.

The Romare Howard Bearden lithograph – a Modernist depiction of an African American jazz band – was edition #129 of 200 on Arches paper measuring 22 inches by 29 ¾ inches. The frame was 26 ½ inches by 34 inches. The work was artist signed "Romare Bearden" lower right and numbered ("129/200") lower left.
