The Prints of Ernest Fiene:
A Catalogue Raisonné

(In Progress)

Topic Gallery:
Works pending entry into or withdrawn from the catalogue raisonné; or of otherwise questionable status
(The prints listed below are not included in the catalogue raisonn
é proper.)
(Click the image or a linked title for more information about a particular work listed below. If the title is not a link,
information other than that presented on this page is not yet available.)
The works referenced below are listed in alphabetical order by available title or similar indicator.

This Topic Gallery lists prints that have been noted in one way or another as being by Ernest Fiene but which have not been included in the catalogue raisonné proper. Instead they are listed separately here for one of the following reasons:

  1. A print, in some manner, has been attributed to Ernest Fiene, but that attribution has been determined to be inauthentic;
  2. A print/work fails to meet the criteria required for inclusion in this catalogue raisonné;
  3. Not enough information is available about a print to warrant an entry in the catalogue at this time. (Some of the prints in this last category are, however, referenced in the list of thumbnails presented chronologically, if a date for the print has been noted, and the work is still under consideration for inclusion in the catalogue.)

"Baiting the Line, Monhegan Island"/ "Fishermen Monhegan"

In a list of lithographs hand-written by the artist and dated June 14, 1958, Fiene specifies two titles, "Baiting the Line, Monhegan Island" and "Fishermen, Monhegan." Either or both of these titles could refer to Fisherman's Cove, Maine, Cat. # 92, but may also imply the existence of one or two undiscovered Monhegan prints. For now the existence of these other prints remains unconfirmed.

"Bather"

(Not the lithograph titled Bather, Cat. # 63, 1931)

An etching entitled "Bather" (first proof) dated 1922, appeared in an auction record but the print has not been observed nor the information verified.

No image available
"Burro"

A lithograph entitled "Burro," dated 1926 in an edition of 30 appears in an auction record but the print has not been observed nor the information verified.

No image available
Cathedral Etchings

A series of etchings, probably from the early twenties, [Chartres, Street in Chartres, The Clock of Rouen] have appeared in an auction record but the prints have not been observed nor the information verified.

No images available
Eleven unspecified etchings

The New Gallery catalogue "Ernest Fiene" of 1924 includes a "portfolio of eleven etchings" as being part of the sale and exhibition, but gives no further detail. Though these eleven prints may refer to some of the etchings otherwise referenced in this catalogue, no verifiable information about their identity is available.

No images available
"Frosty Morning"

In a list of prints hand-written by the artist and dated June 14, 1958, Fiene specifies a print to which he gives the title "Frosty Morning." In 1937, A painting titled "Frosty Morning" won the Norman Wait Harris Silver Medal from the Art Institute of Chicago (Illustrated Art Digest, Dec. 1 1937). The image in the painting is similar to the lithograph, Winter Morning, Cat. # 79. which is probably the print Fiene refers to on the above referenced list; however, it may be a reference to an as yet unfound print.

Phaethon in the Stable (image below)
and Fall of Phaethon (image at right)
1932
Formerly Catalogue #s 68 and 69

These works, in the collection of the BMA, were originally thought to be etchings used as illustrations for the book Phaethon, Son of Apollo by Joseph Gavorse, but have subsequently been reclassified as electrotype reproductions of drawings and hence withdrawn from the catalogue raisonné proper of Fiene's prints.

"Rheims"

A print titled "Rheims" [cathedral town in northeastern France], dated 1930,
appears in an auction record, but no such print has been verified or observed.

No image available
"Sleeping Nude"

In a list of prints hand-written by the artist and dated June 14, 1958, Fiene specifies a print to which he gives the title "Sleeping Nude." As the lithograph Asleep is also on this list, presumably the print referred to is another work. It may refer to [Nude Reclining (in front of Window)] Cat. # 49, 1928, or to an as yet unfound print.

No verifiable image available
"Young Girl"

In a list of prints hand-written by the artist and dated June 14, 1958, Fiene specifies a print to which he gives the title "Young Girl." An auction record also refers to a print by this title. These may be references to the print, Untitled
[Portrait of a Young Woman in Jacket] Cat. # 59 1928; however, it may be a reference to an as yet unfound print.
