"PHOTOGRAPHER AND SITTER" SCULPTURES BY JOHN ROGERS, 1878

Postby BruceBleier » Sun Mar 20, 2016 12:39 pm

I am offering for sale a set of rare and desirable authentic photography related antique sculptures.

John Rogers was an American sculptor who worked in NY from 1859 through 1893. He executed about 80 different subjects during his career, including a pair of statues called "The Photographer" and "The Sitter" which he sculpted in 1878. Rogers only sold plaster castings of his "groupings". He did not make many castings of "The Photographer and Sitter," so they are today quite rare and collectible.

As noted above, this is a two piece set. One piece shows the photographer with his camera sitting atop a beautifully carved pedestal. The other piece is a standing woman with her young child sitting atop a very decorative pedestal of his own.

I am a nationally known coauthor of a book on Rogers and have studied his work for most of my life. I have been fortunate enough to recently come across an authentic circa 1870-1890 casting of this pair and thought you might have an interest. As I have been collecting Rogers' works for decades, I have had few other identical sets of these statues in the past and have sold them to other antique photography collectors.

The pair is in wonderful condition, having been restored to its original condition. I am the country's leading restorer of Rogers Groups and have done work for all the major collectors, as well as a number of museums. There is no damage or missing parts and the set appears the way it did when it was first produced. Both pieces are signed John Rogers and each is patented Oct. 31, 1878. "The Photographer" is 18 1/2" tall, and "The Sitter" is 17" tall.

Again, this is an original late 19th century casting guaranteed to be made in the studio of John Rogers. If you need additional photos or have any questions, please feel free to contact me via email at brucebleier@aol.com. You are also welcome to visit my website johnrogers.info where you will see additional information on Rogers and a picture of another set of "The Photographer" and "The Sitter," as shown in the book my parents and I wrote on Rogers. You are also welcome to call me at 516-791-4353 any time.

The price is $2,500, which is under the market for this set, as evidenced by various auction results and the few other sets that have sold privately.

Thanks for reading!

What a story, it seems to me that such a definition of a topic is a sensational option.
