Violet Oakley (1874-1960), General Meade and Pennsylvania Troops in Camp before Gettysburg, a 17 5/8" x 24½" mixed-media on canvasboard study for a mural in the Senate Chamber of the Pennsylvania State Capitol in Harrisburg, sold for $22,500 (est. $10,000/15,000) in the salesroom to William Valerio, director of the Woodmere Art Museum in Philadelphia, which has a large Violet Oakley collection and is planning a show of her artworks.
"Woodmere wanted both [Oakley works in the sale]," Valerio explained, "but I chose the Meade because the Meade family lived in Chestnut Hill, near the museum, and the buyers of the Washington Marching through Philadelphia said they would lend it to the show."

It takes a creative and open minded museum director, and William Valerio, the director and CEO of Woodmere, is clearly that, to embrace such quirky subject matter, yet Valerio found Paone's collection to be compelling and worthy of an exhibition. I asked Valerio why he decided to exhibit, what are essentially simple dime store tin toys, in a museum that is known for having important Philadelphia artists from Charles Wilson Peale, in the age of the American Revolution, to painter Sarah McEneaney, who today is a leading figure in the city's increasingly vibrant art scene.
"We are showing the printed tin and paper objects because we consider them to be art," explained Valerio. In fact, the companies that produced many of these items, like Dennison and Avery, hired artists in the 1920s and 1930s to design these toys and ornaments for mass distribution, and somehow, he points out, that even today, the specific witches, cats, and pumpkin designs are immediately recognizable. "When imagery has this kind of lasting power-a ubiquity that is taken for granted-it is important to recognize, consider, and think," said Valerio.

"This exciting body of work will engage Woodmere's visitors with a fascinating evolution of forms and images," says William R. Valerio, the Patricia Van Burgh Allison Director and CEO of Woodmere.
