The many aliases of Cappy Amundsen
The Aliases of "Cappy" Hjalmar Amundsen, the resource for this information is from the book "Cappy" written by Terry Wallace
Born Casper Hjalmar Emerson III in New York City...He was known a "Cappy" from birth. In 1946 legally changed his name to Hjalmar Amundsen in honor of his great-uncle, explorer Roald Amundsen, who located the magnetic center of the South Pole the year his great-nephew was born.. Cappy Amundsen...He used many different names in different markets, why he did this one only wonders? In addition he used many different biographies that went with each of the (pseudo-names) The Artist that painted this painting is William Hughes one of many many (pseudo- names) The many other names he painted under are...J.J. Enwright...William Ward Jr...F.H. McKay...William Hughes...Sven Sagg...R.B. Copper...J.C. Bennett...John Dunne...J.C. Bonac...H.Almar...A.Emerson...And of course H. Amundsen.
Wow...His skill as an Artist is without question, his personality, we will say was very complex. Cappy also utilized several different styles to create paintings under these styles.
We have a painting with Cappy Amundsen's alias, Sven Sagg. Its a painting of a sailboat anchored off a sandy beach. Is there any value to it?

I want to know more about my Grandfather. My mother is Nancy Moore Amundsen, born May 13 1948-49, (I think) in Hampton N.Y. I have a letter from my Grandfather from Sag Harbor to my father Phillip Ray in Texas about my birth. I also have Pictures of him and my grandmother Nancy Dennison painting in his studio in Sag Harbor. I have a few paintings of his also. My mother will not talk about him, except for the fact that my grandmother’s family forced her to leave him and move back to Glendale Ohio. I would like to know more about him. My grandmother passed after him on Jan 11 2003 in Cincinnati Ohio.

This Dennis Ainsley oil painting was purchased by my grandfather in europe pre world war 2.It has been in my family ever since.It has always facinated me as the people have no actual features.The rest of the painting is very detailed.Are they alllike this? A.Rock
We have two Ainsley paintings, both oil on artist board and both of street/market scenes. One I bought in Ireland and the other my wife found at Minneapolis antique dealer. I understand that Ainsley was American-born but lived much of his adult life in Europe. I'm also interested in learning more about him and his work.
Does anyone have any info on Enwright that might include a gallery name, a town where he lived, or any info that might help uncover who this man was?
I spoke with an art dealer in the late 90's and he was under the impression that @ the time Mr. Enwright was still alive and living in a nursing home somewhere along the south shore of Mass. I remember the conversation because we thought the location of the home to be a little ironic as most of his subject matter was in the vicinity of the north shore, to our limited knowledge.
There are a few listing regarding biographical info in this artist on the internet such as birth and death but I have beenunable to substantiate any of them by trad. sources. Would anyone be willing to shed some light on new information on this artist?
