Bauernschlagerei.  (The Peasants' Festival and Twelve Months.  The Peasants’ Brawl)., Sebald (Beham)
14 Sebald (Beham) Bauernschlagerei. (The Peasants' Festival and Twelve Months. The Peasants’ Brawl).
Germany, c.1550. 
A small engraving on laid paper, measuring 71 x 51 mm. Tape residue on reverse. Trimmed up to, and very slightly within, plate lines. Not the first state. See Pauli 185a referring to it as a “Originalseitige täuschende Kopie” in which the farmer with the spear has no feather in his hat. The image is of six peasants fighting with swords and other weapons. From a series of ten engravings first issued in 1547. Sebald, who may have trained under Durer, was one of a group who are referred to as the Northern Renaissance Little Masters, so named because of their practice of producing exquisite small-scale engravings.

Nessus Und Deianira., Sebald (Beham)
15 Sebald (Beham) Nessus Und Deianira.
Germany, c.1550. 
A small engraving on laid paper, measuring 52 x 72 mm. One tiny hole in satyr’s arm, tape residue and paper repair on reverse. Trimmed right up to or very slightly within plate lines. The image is of a nude female figure (Deianira) sitting on the lap of a satyr. This is not the first state, but is a reverse copy after Sebald Beham, with the female figure at left, facing right. The tablet in the upper right corner is without the monogram; there is no scenery behind. See Pauli 110b, who refers to it as a "Gegenseitige Kopie". The British Museum has another variant (their number: 1850,0612.266) which is interesting to compare. Sebald, who may have trained under Durer, was one of a group who are referred to as the Northern Renaissance Little Masters, so named because of their practice of producing exquisite small-scale engravings. This image is an uncommon one.

An original painting by Mona Thrasher of Inuvik., Thrasher (Mona)
16 Thrasher (Mona) An original painting by Mona Thrasher of Inuvik.

This framed canvas measures about 34 inches in height, about 28 inches wide. It is a portrait of an aged Inuit woman wearing a parka. Condition is very good - there is one small perforation in the upper part of the canvas, but it is not near to and does not affect the image. Mona Thrasher was born in 1942 in a bush camp between Aklavik and present day Inuvik. At a young age, a hunting accident left her partially deaf and mute. Mona is a self taught artist, with no formal training . At the age of 18, she was approached by Father Adam to paint the Stations of the Cross in the Roman Catholic Church in Inuvik (the Igloo Church). Even though she had never done such a large project, Father Adam knew she was capable. It took Mona just three months to paint all 14 Stations, which still hang in the church today. Since then she has created many paintings, mainly using the colours Blue and White because she believes they best represent the traditional Inuit life - the sky, water, snow and ice. She hopes that through her art, people get a better understanding of the North and its people.
