Overview

The previous page referred to accounts in the Times newspaper which reported the sale of the more important works of art at Christie's in 1913.

McCulloch's widow, who had next married Scottish painter James Coutts Michie, had in fact sold eleven pictures through Christie Manson and Woods in 1909 (ref 1), a further forty three lots in 1911 (refs 2, 3), with the majority (326 lots) being sold over three days in 1913 (refs 4, 5, 6), making 378 sold by Christie, Manson and Woods in all, (less two withdrawn).

Two paintings by the American artist Whistler, who had died in 1903, appear to have been sold privately in 1909 to buyers in Detroit.

At the RA winter exhibition at London in January 1909, 360 works including sculptures had been exhibited, but there were likely to have been some minor works which were not exhibited, and a few others which the family either did not sell or had been gifted. So it's possible McCulloch's total collection may have approached 400 work's.

This compilation of the Times and Christie's Sale information includes a significant contribution from historian and author LR McCallum who is researching the collection (ref 7), and from the Archives Department of Christie's, and we are most grateful for their assistance..

You will see from the transcription below which artists commanded the highest prices.

To simplify transcription the dimensions of the pictures are mostly quoted rounded down to the nearest inch.

Sale at Christie's on 16th July 1909

Eleven paintings were auctioned by Messrs Christie, Manson and Woods at 8 King Street, St James Square, London on Friday 16th July 1909. Here is a transcript of the sale:

81. Waller, SE, 1891, 'One and Twenty', 64 x 100 (Lister) £420

The next day, on the 17th July 1909, The Times newspaper reported on the auction under the banner - Sale of Important Pictures. Here is a transcript of the paragraph about McCulloch's pictures:

Lots 71 to 81 described as ‘the property of a gentleman' were from the famous collection of the late Mr George McCulloch, which formed last winter's exhibition at Burlington House. The protracted correspondence in our columns on the subject of this exhibition will be fresh in the minds of our readers; and we may call attention to the fact that on January 5th The Times published a letter from Sir Edward J Poynter in which he stated that 'we received the most positive assurances that no sale of the McCulloch collection was in contemplation', an assurance which apparently induced the President and Council of the Royal Academy to exhibit the collection in its entirety.

The more important of the McCulloch pictures in yesterday's sale included two by Peter Graham, 'From Beetling Sea-crags, Where the Gannet Builds', 67 x 50 in, from the Royal Academy of 1896, and engraved by JB Pratt - 700gns; Evening: Highland Cattle crossing a Stream, 63 x 47 in, 1,220gns (both purchased by Messrs Tooth).

Shortly after, newspapers reported the sale of a painting by Whistler to an American buyer. It seems likely a private sale had been separately arranged by David Croal Thomson on behalf of McCulloch's widow.

Private sale of Whistler's in 1909

Englands lost picture

The 'Nocturne in Blue and Gold - Valparaiso' CL Freer of Detroit Buys a Whistler (American Art News 4 August 1909)

Whistler self portrait

The other picture by American artist James Abbott McNeill Whistler in the McCulloch collection was a self portrait - Portrait of the Painter, that is now in the Detroit Institute of Arts. This was apparently also sold privately in 1909.

Description and Provenance: Oil on canvas, 29 x 21 in, circa 1872. Arrangement in Grey: Portrait of the Painter, signed above dado on left with butterfly (also signed with butterfly on frame).

Half-length, body facing left, looking out at viewer, wearing round hat and grey painting jacket, holding two paintbrushes in right hand.

Henry Glover Stevens (1879 - 1934) was the son of wealthy businessman William Henry Stevens (1820 - 1901); the latter had discovered lead and silver ore and became a founder of Leadville in Colorado USA. Both men were philanthropists.

A report on this sale appeared in The Times on 1st May 1911 under the banner - SALE OF MODERN PICTURES.

Only the sale of the four most valuable pictures was highlighted, which were:

The Times then went on to report the sale of pictures 'thinly disguised as the property of a gentleman who has given up his London house.'

  • Alma Tadema, Sir L, 1868, The Roman Flower Market, 16 x 22 (Sampson) 420gns

These were probably not part of the McCulloch Collection - do you know who sold them?

Sale at Christie's on May 23, 29, and 30, 1913

The main sale by Christie, Manson and Woods, was held at London in 1913 over three days. The auction catalogue was described:

'Catalogue of the well-known collection of modern pictures and water colour drawings of the British and continental schools, statuary and bronzes formed by the late George McCulloch, Esq, of 184 Queen's Gate, SW'

Catalogue cover

Catalogue frontpiece: courtesy of Christie's Archivist

A copy held by the National Library of Australia is described as having an ownership stamp on the front cover - for the French Gallery, 120 Pall Mall, London and the notes go on to say:

The French Gallery operated at this address from 1854 to 1929, and specialised in the sale and exhibition of contemporary art.

The copy has handwritten annotations throughout with selling prices paid and names of buyers (a running total is cumulated to £136,179 on page 95).

The annotations are likely to be those of David Croal Thomson (1855-1930), who worked as a partner for Thomas Agnew and​ Sons from 1898 to 1908 and acted as McCulloch’s agent in the formation of his collection.

After McCulloch’s death David Croal Thomson was a partner in the French Gallery from 1908 to 1918; he subsequently opened his own gallery, Barbizon House, and dealt from it from 1918 until his death in 1930.

Place of sale: London. Date of sale: Friday 23 May 1913; Thursday 29 May 1913; Friday 30 May 1913, at one o'clock.

Based on information from Robert Holden, August 2016.

We wondered if this information had come from either the British art agent Robert Holden (1956 - 2014), whose obituary was published in the Daily Telegraph on 5th October 2014, or his company Robert Holden Ltd, now trading as Omnia Art Ltd.
