Undated (1930) “Otis Kayes Coin Collection” by Otis Kaye (1885-1974). Oil on panel. Approximately 9.5 x 6.5 inches. Professionally re-framed in a modern wood frame reminiscent of the middle to late 19th-century styles. This is the only difference in the piece since our last offering of this impressive little work in our sale of May 2008. As such, we are pleased to offer it once again, described as in our previous presentation with minor edits:“Fourteen coins, accurately depicted, standing on edge or laying flat, on the three shelves of a time-worn wooden cabinet. Otis Kaye (1885-1974), was born in Nahma, Michigan. He produced relatively few paintings previous to 1929, but then suddenly became far more prolific. Kaye was one of the countless victims of the Great Stock Market Crash, losing his familys entire fortune consisting of over $150,000. He began painting pictures of money, and his paintings reflect Kayes deep feelings of anger and loss. At a time when wealthy coin collectors were keeping their numismatic treasures in ornate, stained and varnished wooden "cabinets," Otis Kayes "Coin Collection" is shown residing in a battered wooden kitchen cabinet, protected by a lock that might easily be opened with a skeleton key. Most of the coins are well circulated, having been pulled from everyday pocket change. The name of Kayes collection isnt set in gold leaf. Instead, the title has been typed on to a tattered scrap of paper, and thumb-tacked into place. Kayes frustration is further echoed by the scrap of paper pasted to the bottom of the cabinet which states "MONEY COSTS." In November of 1988, examples of Otis Kayes work were on display at Berry-Hill Galleries, on East 70th Street in New York, alongside other trompe-l’oeil masterpieces by John Haberle and others, some of which were priced well over a $1 million. Kayes oil paintings were then being offered for up to $100,000. <em>Otis Kayes Coin Collection</em> is a wonderful example of a genre that is both whimsical, and compelling. Paintings of this caliber are rarely offered, making this is an opportunity that should not be missed.”Indeed, D. Brent Pogue took advantage of the opportunity to acquire this lovely painting in our 2008 sale. While such works are not often seen in the realm of numismatic auctions, the particular subject matter and sentiments behind Kaye’s artistic expressions make this an ideal accompaniment to an advanced collection. <em>From our sale of the Minot Collection, May 2008, lot 3139. </em><em></em><em></em>
