Nelson R. Sulouff
I have an oil-on-wood painting by Elihu Vedder. Caption on back reads, "Might be called Werness- Painted long ago - finished and signed 1911." Painting is on mahogany wood and measures approximately 15 in. by 3.5 in. I would like to learn of a catalog of Vedder's work that lists this painting.
Seeking lost Egyptian Vedders (NOT to sell or buy)
For a fall 2011 catalogue of Vedder's Nile drawings & paintings, I am listing all known related works, even if their current locations are not publicly available. Because the book is intended as a scholarly reference, not just an exhibit record, I am trying to find as many "lost" works as possible. In particular, I would greatly appreciate clues to the current locations of 6 paintings: Laboring in the Fields before the Colossi of Memnon (Graham Galleries, 1982); Assuan, Egypt (Soria catalogue #456/ Kennedy Galleries, 2001/ Sotheby’s Arcade, 12-12-06), Egyptian Nile (Soria #457/ Lent by Kennedy Galleries to Perceptions & Evocations, 1978, & Noble Dreams & Wicked Pleasures, 2000); Tombs at Assuan, Egypt—Nile—Rocks, & Egypt—Assuan—Nile (Soria #458, 459 & 461/ all Harold O. Love, 1970). Thank you. Laura Vookles, Chief Curator of Collections, Hudson River Museum.
Vedder sold at Sloan's
The Hudson River Museum is seeking the current owner of a North African View by Vedder purchased at Sloan's Bethesda in 2002. My research for an upcoming exhibit of Vedder's trip to Egypt has uncovered new information on the date and subject of the piece. email.
Young Marsyas Charming the Hares
I am looking for any information about this print. We found it behind another piece of art in an old frame while remodeling. It is signed by the artist with a copyright of 1899.
Vedder Nile exhibition
The Hudson River Museum in Yonkers is planning a Vedder exhibition for fall 2008 and is seeking any information on the whereabouts of Vedder's drawings and paintings of Eqypt, especially if they have been discovered since, or changed hands since, Regina Soria's catalogue raisonne. Thank you. Laura Vookles, Chief Curator of Collections

There are two Vedder firebacks at Virginia
Commonwealth University in houses that date from
the 1890s (The Sun God and Young Marsyas Charming the Hares.) The Sun God was manufactured by Smith & Anthony of Boston (with Vedder's knowledge) and other was manufactured by Scanlan & Co. of Kentucky (probably w/o Vedder's knowledge.) I would welcome any information on any other firebacks based on Vedder paintings as well as any information on the Sun God or Young Marsyas Charming the Hares (this
sold under the name Marsyas Enchanting the Hares.) And/or information on Vedder. I am currently a graduate student in Art History at VCU.
