los angeles modern auctions | June 3,2007

Welcome to another great auction of Modern Design and Fine Art. As we celebrate our fifteenth anniversary, we continue to bring you the best examples of furniture and objects of the past century. During this time we have also been offering more and more Fine Art. This sale is no exception with a wide variety of Twentieth Century styles and periods from a rare 1913 Erich Heckel German Expressionist print to Ken Price’s groundbreaking 1961 sculpture on the cover. One collection worth highlighting is that of the late Barre Schlaes. Mr. Schlaes was a life long patron of the arts and collected with an emphasis on the Spanish School. We are particularly excited about a unique hand-colored etching by Joan Miro and two very early paintings by Luis Feito. Among other highlights is a Sandoz Monkey, from a group of objects consigned by the Education Art Collection, Cleveland Museum of Art. This is a rare opportunity to acquire work with provenance associated with one of the world’s great Art Institutions. All proceeds from the sale of these items will benefit the Education Art Collection. Each of these lots is marked with a bullet point ( ) after the lot number.

Finally, we are very proud to continue representing the work of Jan de Swart, an extraordinary craftsman and sculptor whose work was at the very forefront of the California Craft and Design movement. We hope you will share our enthusiasm for this great selection of Modernist work; enjoy!

Frank Gehry Group of modular Parson’s tables (8) Easy Edges, Inc., designed 1971 Corrugated cardboard & Masonite Each 14”h x 38”l x 12”w and can be configured in many ways The purpose of the Easy Edges line of furniture was multifold. Not only was it lightweight, durable, and easy to produce, but it was also an early example of “Green” architecture. The Masonite and cardboard materials were designed so that when discarded they would be more quickly biodegradable than other materials. Durability was the most surprising quality of the line. Early advertising campaigns showed a number of images conveying the strength of the material including a car being supported by three barstools and Gehry himself jumping on a desk.

Le Corbusier was arguably the most influencial architect of his time. While he may be less well known as an artist, it is probably safe to say he considered himself equally an artist as much as an architect. Throughout his entire professional life he was rarely seen without a sketchbook to record observations and ideas. In 1932, Le Corbusier spent the summer in Le Piquey, France. During this time he made numerous sketches of beach scenes including several of seated women reading and many seashells. This imagery later became the basis for many drawings and paintings. The drawing offered here was not created at Le Piquey, but is a combination of imagery first observed there.

CONDITIONS OF SALE / NOTICE TO BUYERS The following are our “Conditions of Sale” for the items listed in this catalogue to be sold by Modern Auctions, Inc. (L.A. Modern Auctions or “LAMA”). We are acting as an agent on behalf of our consignors. Payment All sales are final. All sold lots are to be paid for on the day of the sale. We accept cash, bank wire transfers, checks, and Mastercard and Visa. PLEASE NOTE: Credit card payments are accepted only in person and will not be accepted over the phone. All payments made by personal checks will be subject to clearance before purchases can be collected. Buyers who have not purchased from Modern Auctions, Inc. (dba: Los Angeles Modern Auctions) previously are asked to provide a method of payment and/or letter of reference from a bank or creditor prior to the auction. Bank wire information is available upon request, please phone (323) 904-1950. If payment is not received by June 11th collection & storage fees will begin incurring. Buyer’s Premium A buyer’s premium of 20% will be added to the hammer price on all property sold with Modern Auctions, Inc. For all property sold via eBay Live Auctions the buyer’s premium is 22.5%. California Sales Tax Sales tax of 8.25% will be collected on all purchases removed from our premises or delivered within the state of California. Those holding a valid California State Resale License must register before each sale and present their valid resale number. No purchases will be released until all sales tax requirements are satisfied. Estimates & Reserves The estimates printed after each lot should be used as a guide only and should not be relied upon as a prediction of final selling prices. Many of the lots offered for sale carry a reserve and are confidential. This is a minimum price at which the seller has agreed to let the auctioneer sell the property. Condition EVERYTHING IS SOLD IN “AS-IS” CONDITION. No statement regarding condition of any item, whether it is made orally at the auction or at any other time or in writing in this catalogue shall be deemed to be a warranty, representation or assumption of liability. It is the sole responsibility of the buyer to inspect all goods prior to the sale. We strongly encourage all bidders to request a condition report on any item before bidding. All electrical items are sold for decorative value only and should be assumed not to be working. All measurements are approximate. Photographs of any lots not illustrated can be found on our website www.lamodern. com Collection and Storage All lots must be removed from the auction showroom by 12:00 pm on June 6th. All property remaining after June 6th will be removed and stored in an offsite storage facility at the cost of the buyer. Purchases not removed by June 6th will be assessed a removal fee of $15 per lot, and daily storage fees of $15 per day per lot. Items in storage are not insured by MAI. Unless other arrangements are made and confirmed in writing shipping, packing, insurance, and storage concerns are the sole responsibility of the buyer. A list of shippers can be provided upon request. Bidding We encourage you to attend the sale in person however, if you can not attend in person we offer an “absentee” or phone bidding service. For this service fill out and submit an “Absentee/Phone bid” form. To obtain this form please call (323) 9041950 or go to our website. We will not execute absentee or phone bid orders unless a signed and completed bid form has been received. All Absentee/Phone bid forms must be received by Saturday, June 2nd by 5:00 p.m. via fax to (323) 904-1954. We encourage you to call after faxing to confirm we have received your bid. We kindly ask that you do not call on the day of the sale to submit bids or to see if your bids were successful. All successful absentee bids should be notified by phone by June 4th. In addition, the auction prices realized will be posted the day after the sale on our website. Do not rely on any auction results (prices realized) unless published on www.lamodern.com or as provided directly by L.A. Modern Auctions.

Absentee/Phone bids are on a first come first serve basis; thus, we encourage you to submit your form as soon as possible. If identical absentee bids are submitted, the earliest received will take precedence. The number of phone lines available are limited so please submit your phone requests early. On all absentee/phone bid forms, please leave a valid credit card number with expiration date; a deposit of 25% may be required for all absentee and phone bids. Please note that we only accept credit card payments in person. For those absentee/phone bidders who can not come in personally to pay, we will only accept either a certified check or wire transfer as a method of payment (see “Payment” notice). The party responsible for submitting the absentee or phone bid is solely responsible for the payment in full of the total invoice. We will not make any changes to an invoice. Should a dispute arise after the sale, our sale records are conclusive. We are not responsible for failure to execute a bid and have the right to reject any bid. We reserve the right to withdraw any property before the sale and shall have no liability whatsoever for such withdrawal. Should an item be withdrawn, the auctioneer will make an announcement at the time the lot would have been put up for sale. In addition, the auctioneer may add lots not previously listed in the catalogue or addendum. If the buyer does not comply with all of the notices to buyers, Modern Auctions, Inc, reserves the right to cancel the sale, hold the defaulting buyer liable for the purchase price and buyer’s premium, retain any deposit, and resell the property privately or at auction without further notice. In the latter, the defaulting buyer will be held responsible for all incurred expenses, such as warehouse and transportation costs, commissions, incidentals, and shall be liable for payment of any deficiency in the purchase price. This is strictly enforced. We reserve the right to assess a late charge of 1.5% of the total purchase price per month if payment is not made in accordance with any of these conditions of sale. Guarantee The authenticity of every item offered for sale is guaranteed. Modern Auctions, Inc. warrants only the authorship of an item (as printed in RED type) and does not guarantee the condition, age, or any identifying characteristic used by Modern Auctions, Inc, in any descriptions such as color, method of construction, and type of materials. Any lot using the terms “attributed”, “attribution,” “in the style of,” “in the manner of,” or “after” does not qualify for our guarantee. In addition, the buyer assumes responsibility of reading all addendums and posted corrections to the catalogue prior to bidding. Should the authenticity of an item be disputed after a sale, it is the buyer’s responsibility to provide written documentation or conclusive opinion of a mutually agreed upon independent expert that the item in question is not as stated in the catalogue. In the event of an error, Modern Auctions, Inc. will reimburse the buyer for no more than the hammer price plus the buyer’s premium and only after the item is returned to the original point of sale in the condition in which it was sold. Taxes, packing, shipping and storage costs will not be reimbursed.
