Cameron Booth: Minnesota Master

Biography

Cameron Booth was born in 1892 in Erie, Pennsylvania. After moving several times, his family settled in Moorhead, Minnesota, where Booth graduated from high school in 1912. During his studies at the Art Institute of Chicago, Booth was introduced to the work of Picasso, Cezanne, and Braque, as well as Post-Impressionism and Italian Primitives.

Drafted into the army in 1917, Booth was in France when World War I ended. He stayed and studied with the Mexican cubist Angelo Zaraga, supporting himself in part by selling his sketches and portraits. Booth returned to Minnesota in 1921, teaching for a time at the Minneapolis College of Art and Design before moving to the Leech Lake Reservation at Onigum. There, Booth began sketching and painting northern Minnesota landscapes and scenes of Ojibwe Indian life.

Booth’s oil paintings won recognition at the Minnesota State Art Society and were presented in the Annual Exhibition of American Paintings and Sculpture in Chicago. He was commissioned for painting installations and regularly presented his work in exhibitions and competitions.

After a return to Europe to study with Andre L’hote in Paris and Hans Hoffman’s school on the Italian Island of Capri, Booth continued teaching in Minneapolis and became director of the St. Paul Gallery and School of Art in 1931. During the 1930s he led the Public Works of Art Project to provide employment to artists, and in 1942 he won a Guggenheim fellowship. He traveled and exhibited throughout the American West and in New York, and taught at the University of Minnesota. He died in 1980.

Cameron Booth’s Paintings

Booth’s works include Minnesota landscapes, portraits, and pictures of animals, especially horses. He often used color and rough brushstrokes to convey emotion and movement, and worked in many painting media, from oil with gouache to watercolor and acrylic.

His work is included in the collections of many institutes and galleries, including the Bertha Schafer Gallery in New York, the Minneapolis Institute of Arts, the Art Institute of Chicago, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, and the Museum of Modern Art in New York.

Tsuguharu Foujita was known not only for his art which blended techniques from around the world, but also for being quite the fashion icon of his time. His round glasses, gold hoop earrings, and boxcar mustache perfectly suited his vibrant personality. Here, we’ll cover a quick biography of the artist, what artistic mediums and subjects he was known for using, and the value of his works.

Who Is Charles Schulz?

Charles Schulz was born on November 26, 1922 in Minneapolis, Minnesota to parents Carl Schulz and Dena Halverson. He grew up in Saint Paul, MN, and graduated from Central High School before being drafted into the United States army in 1943. After the war ended, Charles Schulz returned to Minnesota, where he found a job teaching for Art Instruction, Inc.

In June 1947, Schulz began a run of one panel cartoons called Li’l Folks, which were published weekly in the Saint Paul Pioneer Press through January 1950. During this same time period, Schulz had 17 one-panel drawings printed in the Saturday Evening Post.

In 1950, Schulz approached United Feature Syndicate with his Li’l Folks comics, presenting some new four-panel samples as well as his traditional one-panel comics. The Syndicate preferred his longer, four-panel comics, and agreed to represent his comics under the new name Peanuts. On October 2, 1950, the first Peanuts comic strip appeared in 7 newspapers across the US.

Schulz continued to draw Peanuts comic strips for the next 50 years, and collaborated to create numerous TV specials featuring his characters. Besides his work with the Peanuts cartoon, Schulz was also an avid fan of hockey and other winter sports. Before the commercial success of Peanuts, Schulz also created a sports-themed comic strip called Its Only A Game. After moving to Santa Rosa, California in 1969, Schulz opened a hockey rink called Redwood Empire Ice Arena. Schulz was still an active hockey player later in life, and hosted an over-75 hockey
tournament at his arena in 1998.

Schulz was diagnosed with colorectal cancer among other health issues in 1999, and announced his retirement from the Peanuts comic on December 14th of that year. He died of a heart attack in his sleep on February 12, 2000, just two days before his final Peanuts strip would be published.

History of the Peanuts Cartoon

Charles Schulz visited New York in 1950, where he presented his four-panel Li’l Folks comic strips to United Feature Syndicate. They liked his work and agreed to represent it, but the group faced some legal challenges from the creator of the 1930s cartoon Little Folks, who felt that the name Li’l Folks was infringing on his copyright. Schulz was unable to come up with a marketable alternative name, and the comic was eventually named Peanuts against his wishes.

The first Peanuts strip appeared in newspapers on October 7, 1950 as a daily strip. The first Sunday strip of Peanuts was released on January 6, 1952. The early comics had a crisp, minimalistic style and featured characters such as Charlie Brown, Shermy, Snoopy, Linus, Lucy, and more.

Throughout the 1950s and 60s, Schulz continued to refine his style and add new characters such as Peppermint Patty, Franklin, and Woodstock. Although Peanuts did not explicitly address social issues of the time, strips showing mixed gender sports teams and racially integrated schools resonated with many readers in a time when sexism and racial segregation were still commonplace.

Peanuts left behind an impressive legacy, and the characters have been drawn, painted, sculpted and otherwise remembered by thousands of artists since Schulz’ death.

What Determines the Value of Peanuts Cartoons?

  • Date: The date of print is a useful way to determine the value of Peanuts comic strip art. In the 1950s, Peanuts ran in only a small number of newspapers, and the strips had a distinct style that featured cleaner, simpler lines than later works. Because of their age and unique style, Peanuts art from this period can be very valuable to the right collector.

The 1960s and early 1970s were considered the golden age of Peanuts, when national interest in the characters spiked, and merchandise of the characters became widely available. A far greater number of newspapers printed the comics during this period, which introduced the characters to families across the country. Many collectors have a particular interest in this period of Peanuts history, which increases the value of Peanuts art from this period.

Peanuts comics produced between about 1975 and 2000 fall outside of this ‘golden era’. There is more art from this period on the market and fewer people collecting it, making them less valuable on average than comics from the 1950s and 60s.

  • Original vs. Printed: Original art for Peanuts comic strips by Charles Schulz can be very valuable, often selling for tens of thousands of dollars. Original drawings of individual characters can often be worth a few hundred to a few thousand dollars as well. Peanuts comic strips printed in newspapers and books of reprinted Peanuts strips are rarely worth more than a few dollars unless they are signed by Charles Schulz. The exception is very early strips from the 1950s. In its original 1950 debut, Peanuts only ran in 7 newspapers. Because of this low circulation, Peanuts cartoon strips from this period have the potential to be more valuable.
  • Other Considerations: In general, the larger, half-page Sunday comics are more valuable than the four-panel daily comics. The daily comics in turn are more valuable than single-panel sketches of the characters. Condition of the comic is another important factor to consider. Yellowing, smudges, tears, creases, or other signs of deterioration can lower the value of the comic strip.

What Determines The Value of Paul Cadmus Art?

Paul Cadmus art pieces have a huge range of final sale prices at auction, so determining the value of a particular Paul Cadmus piece may prove difficult for the average collector. The biggest difference in value comes from the art medium, with tempera paintings generally commanding far higher values than Cadmus’ other works due to their complexity and relative rarity. Other factors influencing the value of a Cadmus piece include its size and level of detailing. 

  • Medium: Perhaps most important in determining the value of a Paul Cadmus art piece is looking at the medium. Because egg tempera was a highly time consuming medium to work in, Cadmus produced relatively few tempera pieces in his lifetime. These works are far more complex and scarce than his other works, making them his most valuable pieces.
  • Size: As is true with many works of art, larger pieces by Paul Cadmus tend to be more valuable. The majority of his drawings and paintings are 20 inches or less in their largest dimension and feature a single male figure. Because of this, larger pieces, especially those showing full scenes, tend to be particularly sought after.
  • Detail: Cadmus’ drawings exhibit a huge range of detail from rough charcoal on paper nudes to lifelike figures drawn onto hand toned paper. Unsurprisingly, drawings that include extra detail, such as added color or particularly fine shading, may be worth thousands of dollars, while more basic sketches may be worth a few hundred.

The Values of Paul Cadmus Drawings and Paintings

Paul Cadmus, The Fleet’s In!

One of Cadmus’s most famous pieces, The Fleet’s In! was produced in 1934 while Cadmus was working for the Public Works of Art Project. After it was pulled from the exhibition at the Corcoran Gallery for its controversial depictions of sailors carousing with locals on shore, the painting was moved to assistant Secretary of the navy Henry Roosevelt’s house, where it remained until his death in 1936. It was then moved to the Alibi club for about four decades, then finally to the Naval History and Heritage Command, where it remains to this day. Since this piece has never been formally bought or sold, its value cannot be reliably estimated.

Paul Cadmus, Seven Deadly Sins

The Seven Deadly Sins are a collection of seven paintings produced by Cadmus between 1945 and 1949. Each painting is a portrait of one sin depicted in surreal and horrifying detail. The collection is currently held by the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York. Although the Seven Deadly Sins paintings have never been publicly sold, studies for the paintings have sold for between $1,800 to $3,500 at auction.

A 21×35 tempera painting of a couple with a red barn, a horse, and two cows in the background.

It sold once in 1998 for $2,430,000 and again in 2006 for $452,800.

Paul Cadmus, Sailors and Floosies

Yoshida - In a Temple Yard

What is the Artist Hiroshi Yoshida Known For?

Artist Hiroshi Yoshida had an innate ability to balance authentic Japanese imagery, culture, and techniques with the Western-style painting he had learned and developed over the years. His travels around the globe further gave Japanese artist Hiroshi Yoshida the confidence that his artwork was unique. The artist mostly combined traditional ukiyo-e subject matter, particularly landscapes, with the Western-style Impressionist sensibility for light, perspective, and mood.

Japanese Woodblock Printing

Japanese woodblock printing originated in the Edo period (between 1603 and 1867) as a method to widely distribute writings, specifically Buddhist scripture. By 1765 new technologies allowed color to be added to the wood prints where previous artists would have to add them by hand. This led to the transition of text-based prints to prints of people, historical events, and landscapes that artists like Hiroshi Yoshida became known for.

Valuable Hiroshi Yoshida Woodblock Prints

Hiroshi Yoshida’s Japanese Woodblock prints are still famous today for their blend of Western style with Japanese hues and techniques. Here are a few popular pieces among the wide variety of oil, watercolor, and woodblock prints you can find today.

Yoshida - Kameido Bridge

Hiroshi Yoshida, Kameido Bridge

Grand Canyon (1925)

Grand Canyon is a bright and vibrant print measuring 11.5 x 16 inches. The bright blues and oranges add dimension to the canyon, while the deeper blues, greens, and grays enhance the contrast to give the impression that part of the canyon is illuminated in the sunshine.

Selling for: $8,000-$9,600

Kameido Bridge (1927)

The Kameido Bridge was part of a twelve-part series considered to be Hiroshi Yoshida’s masterpiece. There were 75 prints made of this scene, and it carries his trademark contrast of bright pinks and blues to darker hues.

Selling for: $1,600-$2,800

Pittsburgh (1928)

This small piece measures 3 ¼ x 5 inches. Also known as Evening in Pittsburg, this Hiroshi Yoshida made this woodblock print in 1928. The subtle sky offsets the moody deep colors of the bridge and boat. The negative space created to represent fog is made more real with the warm, golden yellow lights that illuminate the boat and reflect off the water.

Selling for: $800-$1,400

Yoshida - In a Temple Yard

Hiroshi Yoshida, In a Temple Yard

In a Temple Yard (1935)

The scenic view of In a Temple Yard captures Yoshida’s ability to balance color, form, and design with beautiful ease. The bright pink cherry blossoms and pink sky draw you in with shades of blue to add contrast to the background. The temple stands firmly in the center, but the women in bright kimonos draw your attention back to the foreground. Yoshida’s brilliant talent is apparent in the reflections we see in the pond that are just imperfect enough to make you believe the water can be touched.

Selling for: $2,000-$2,600

Mt Rainier (1925)

Part of his earliest works, this painting of the United States landscape shows a mastery of color and realism that Yoshida is known for. This piece measures 15.5 x 21 inches and is one of his larger pieces.

Selling for: $2,000-$3,000

Yoshida - Taj Mahal no. 1

Yoshida, Taj Mahal no. 1

Taj Mahal (1932)

The Hiroshi Yoshida Taj Mahal pieces showcase some of the views that captured Yoshida’s attention during his travels during his career. The bright sun in India provides the perfect environment for Yoshida to balance the cool air that the trees and shadows can provide, with the Taj Mahal as the centerpiece that stands out ever so slightly. True to form, the people that artist Hiroshi Yoshida depicts wear bright colors to stand out and add more depth to the landscape.

Selling for: $2,500-$5,500

Yoshida - Yarigatake
