“Equally, Villa does not see his works as isolated end products, but rather as phases in the continuous process of the awareness of being. He creates intuitively and many series of works contain the germ of an idea that generates the next series. Sometimes sculptures are stripped, rebuilt or enhanced, reincorporated into the flow of his creativity. Thus, for example, he reworked aspects of previous sculptures such as Mapogga Woman…to create a completely new piece.”1 In Untitled I, executed in 1999, Villa revisited the 1964 heraldic form of an erect female figure. This act of revisiting previous themes is Villa’s interpretation of ‘continuous becoming’- a 20th century precept of motion and change. In Untitled Villa has translated the solidity of Mapogga Woman into sweeping planes of steel whilst retaining the strong gender references. P.D.

Executed in 1991 with later alterations, Throne forms part of the series developed by Edoardo Villa inspired by Jackson Hlungwane’s series of the same title. Hlungwane’s work had been exhibited in Johannesburg in the late 80s. Villa’s work however moves sharply away from Hlugwane’s work in that Villa’s thrones are not functional objects but rather low-slung, anti-utilitarian and complex in their design. As the series evolved “the sculptures…became plane and line, slicing into and floating in space.”2

Throne rests on pointed supports, not new to Villa’s work as these had first appeared in the 1960s. These delicate points create a contradiction between the solid-yetorganic planes of steel making up the throne. Thus the work appears to resist the pull of gravity.

561 William Joseph Kentridge (SOUTH AFRICAN 1955-)

DRAWING FOR THE FILM STEREOSCOPE

signed charcoal and pastel on paper 122 by 159,5cm

In DRAWING FOR THE FILM STEREOSCOPE the split screen serves to divide Eckstein from himself. Divided by a blue line denoting the two-screens Eckstein stands in a room devoid of homely comforts despite the single bed alongside one wall. He appears strangely shut off from, and impervious, to the blue lines of communication. By splitting the image Kentridge has effectively split Eckstein into his two selves.

Question 4: Why did you choose to use a split screen in some parts of the video?

The following interview is taken from http:// www.ubu.com/film/kentridge_stereoscope. html6

Question 5: Was Stereoscope inspired by specific events in South African history?

ILLUSTRATED

R 1 200 000 - R 1 400 000

“All of my work is about Johannesburg in one form or another. My schools: university, art school, all the training I had has been here in Johannesburg - apart from my year in Paris. Thematically I suppose I work with what’s in the air, which is to say a mixture of personal questions and the broader social questions. Questions this year, questions last year, responsibility, retribution, recrimination, before issues of what histories are hidden in the landscape. Often they’re fairly broad questions but generally they arrive through quite a personal or particular starting point.”1 Stereoscope (1999), as well as Kentridge’s previous seven films, was fashioned through Kentridge’s unique process of animation. Using consecutive modifications to a single charcoal drawing, adding to and erasing from, he arrives at the stills which are then seamed together to create the final film. In essence, there are a thousand alterations to only a few drawings.2 Soho Eckstein, the film’s protagonist, a pin-striped suited businessman, strongly resembles Kentridge3 himself. Eckstein is a solitary figure whose sole companion and sometime source of comfort is a black cat.4 The cat ultimately becomes the “cipher of destruction and ultimate annihilation.”5 The cat later morphs into an electric blue animal that roams feral through the modern cityscapes and finally settles into the cannonball that obliterates the landscape. The sole survivors of this holocaust are Eckstein and the cat. A stereoscope, the photographic device that produces the illusion of a three-dimensional image by combining two pictures of a single subject taken from different points of view, runs visually and thematically throughout the film.

Question 1: Your works appear very labour intensive. How long did it take you to create Stereoscope? Can you talk a little bit about the significance of your laborious process and how you maintain momentum and focus? W.K. The work is very labour intensive. Stereoscope took 9 months to make - with some breaks for travel and exhibitions during that period. It takes a long time because there is no script or storyboard - the ideas are worked out in the making. In the construction of Stereoscope, most of the first four months work had to be abandoned. Momentum - because the work is so slow, unless one works fast and intensely, the project would never get finished. So one has to begin each day running. Making the film is about finding the focus, finding what the film is about. If the film had been storyboarded, it would be difficult to maintain focus; but because it is thought out as it is done, that becomes part of the subject. Question 2: The music in Stereoscope is very striking. Was it composed specifically for the work? If so, were you involved in that process? W.K. Music. Philip Miller, a South African composer, wrote the music for the film. He has written music for four of my films. His involvement comes at quite an early stage - after a couple of months, when there are a few minutes of rushes to look at, we sit look at them at an editing table, with different pieces of music - anything from Monteverdi to jazz - and try to understand the musical grammar of the film. From then on we work closely, and the music becomes more and more precise as the film nears completion.

cat symbolises, if anything - I simply knew that I needed a cat at that moment of the film. Blue lines are simply a literal drawing of different lines of communication in the film.

W.K. Come on! The film is called Stereoscope, a machine which needs two separate images to make one threedimensional view. Any more clues needed?

W.K. No specific events in SA history. The section of chaos in the city towards the end of the film contains images from newspapers and TV from the weeks in which I was working on that part - police beating students in Jakarta, Indonesia; riots outside banks in Moscow, Russia; rebels being thrown over a bridge, and then shot at in the river below, Kinshasa, Congo; someone picking up rubble to throw at a building - US embassy in Nairobi, Kenya. But of course the images are all of Johannesburg. This piece, DRAWING FOR THE FILM STEREOSCOPE, acquired at the time of the inaugural exhibition at the Goodman Gallery in Cape Town, was used as the exhibitions frontispiece.

TRIBUTE TO UCCELLO NO. 2

signed and dated 89; inscribed with the title on the reverse carved, incised and painted wood panel 121,5 by 122,5cm ILLUSTRATED

R 700 000 - R 900 000

“For me as an artist working...in the twentieth century, having been born into an time of great strife, and travail, and difficulty, I looked forward to coming to terms with… my own existence and my own way of thinking…”1 In Tribute to Uccello Skotnes fuses two figures which, in essence, become indistinguishable Siamese twins that seem

to share a voice. Uccello, referenced in the title, was an Italian painter and mathematician working in the early 15th century who is best known for his pioneering work on visual perspective in art. Uccello’s paintings are distinguishable from other Renaissance works by his fascination of geometric precision.

The exactness of Tribute to Uccello fully demonstrates Skotnes’ confidence with the medium with which he had become best known, that of the carved and painted woodblock panel. P.D. 1

566 "These [landscape] paintings, therefore do not suggest the intention of representing either the physical or metaphysical properties of geography. The pictorial language is evidently self-referential and its meaning should be sought not in any external reality but rather within the framework of the artist’s experience. The manner in which Skotnes’ landscapes have been constructed tends to confirm the priority of the formal, rather than representational concerns in the works."

“The face had many characteristics and appeared to Skotnes to grow from the inside out. The result was that he started at the nose…despite their drastic distortion and formalisation which almost deny them their humanity, these portraits have a presence which can convince viewers that the likenesses are true.”1 In Icon 15 the sole facial feature of the subject is the nose, the remainder of the face is a composite of abstract forms.

This near-patterning continues throughout the entire form of the being whose head, shoulders and torso are clearly delineated against the plane of the surround or background. The hand-tooled brass areas of the frame lend the figure a heraldic and monumental quality fitting for a modern icon. P.D. 1 Freida Hamsen, Artist Resolute, Cape Town, 2006, p 58-59

"I never concocted the idea of the African mask at all…" In Icon 13, produced in 1990, the head or mask is reduced to a series of textured and coloured planes. The title suggests a history of stylisation and rich visual elements. In this work, the polished plates of brass containing the image, add to the decoration of the image as a whole. P.D.

595 “Isolation, impermanence and the inevitable destruction by hostile environment forces are Alexander’s central subject...in [this] work, there is the odd sense of being able to see the outlines of high drama. One senses that behind the disciplined, remarkably controlled and unflurried reality, there are those tensions and the kind of anguish that accompanies isolation and loss.”1

In The Caller, executed in 1992, we see the familiar checkerboard floor, crumbling in parts, leading to the omnipresent desert. Alexander’s masterful use of dramatic light and shadow effects form an integral part of the powerful composition of this work and the ambiguity of the figure-like shadow beyond the doorway leads the viewer to ponder the true nature of this desolate scene.

The ghost mining town of Namibia provided Keith Alexander with a bounty of vistas upon which to build the body of work for which he first garnered public acclaim in the late 1980s.

R 600 000 - R 800 000

The formative years of Walter Battiss were lived in small towns surrounded by wilderness. As a child, he had experienced the openness of the Karoo, which left an indelible impression on his perception of experienced and imagined reality. He recalled looking up at the vast desert sky and thinking that the stars existed on one plane, with the darkness as another plane, beyond the stars, and in between was a space that he felt he could inhabit where he “could bargain with the unreal”1. His exposure to the rock engraving of the Bushmen at the age of 11 struck a chord within him and in his twenties he began actively seeking out the paintings and engravings of South Africa’s first people: “[w]hat I had recognised was that in all of us there is still some aspect of primitivism – the vestigial Adam”2. He realised that within this seemingly simplistic art form lay an expression of sophisticated, stylised and schematised vision, one that combined perceived and imagined reality. The harsh light of the Karoo and Highveldt influenced his move towards dispensing with his early Impressionistic style of painting and the illusionary rendering of space in preference for “a representation of the spiritual essence of visual reality on a two-dimensional plane.”3 Prelude to a Dance belongs to the period of artworks created between 1955 and 1962, which includes African Rocks and Figures (in the collection of the South African National Gallery), Fishermen Drawing Nets (1955), African Women (1960) and African Paradise (1961). These paintings share the same stylistic devices and subject or themes. They show Battiss looking to Africa for inspiration

and combining scenes from everyday rural village life, rites and rituals, the art of the Bushmen and that of the Ancient Egyptians. In Prelude, Battiss creates his own elusive narrative, much as the explicit meaning of the paintings of the Khoi-San artists now elude us, Battiss invites us into his imagined world to create our own narrative. The stylised figures become calligraphic symbols that hold whole phrases of meaning as opposed to a single letter within the Roman alphabet. During this period, Battiss was also examining Egyptian Hieroglyphics and Islamic calligraphy – that a word formed a symbolic picture of meaning. In terms of the conventions of hierarchical proportioning in Egyptian mural painting, the three female figures (centre mid-left) may be read as being of the greatest importance or significance. However, we may also read these as symbolic of contemporaneous reality overlaying the mythical past. These figures seem to be conversing with one another; one of the women holds a fruit, perhaps an apple, which then recalls the judgement of the Three Graces by Paris. Aside from the three large female figures rendered in black silhouettes and draped in brightly coloured and patterned wraps, all the other figures are depicted within the language of Khoi-San figurative stylisation. They are rendered in swift, calligraphic line-work, which is then filled in with flat tones of colour. Battiss sought to free colour from symbolic meaning: “To enjoy colour as colour not servile to tone or science dogma, thus beholding polychrome paintings as chords of colours unsullied by superstitious associations – yellow ochre to be enjoyed

for its special yellowness, and white for its special whiteness, and black for its special blackness.”4 The figures reside on one plane while the background has been reduced to a flat one-dimensional decorative surface – a patchwork of colour upon which the figures appear in friezes. While these three central figures hold the greatest visual gravitas within the composition we are soon drawn to a figure on their right, that of an artist as he holds a palette and paintbrushes. One is tempted to guess that this is the figure of Battiss, the shaman or Wisemantrickster. Beneath the paintbrush of the artist figure is a series of orange dots, in the lexicon of Bushman rock-art the most common interpretation of painted patterns and dots is seen to be evidence of the ocular stimulation that occurs in trance states. As a stylistic device within this painting, they lead the eye of the viewer from the artist to three dancing figures. These figures, their legs bent at the knees direct the eye to the group of figures in the top right hand corner. The turquoise figure is holding a black object which leads the eye across the top of the canvas to the three figures at top centre, who in turn direct our attention to the Khoi-San hunter figure on the extreme left. Showering down from him are turquoise dots leading to the large group of ochre and orange figures in the bottom right-hand corner. In the bottom centre is a singular non-human figure, a white bird. Its form is strongly reminiscent of the national bird of Zimbabwe, based on the soapstone carvings found at the Great Zimbabwe Ruins, of which Battiss would have been familiar with having

travelled there. Beside the bird, two white figures lead the eye to the last group on the middle right, their up-stretched arms leading us into the top right hand group again. Like Matisse’s La Dance (1909) the arms and legs of the dancing figures lead the eyes around and around the swirling motion of the dancing figures. Here too Battiss leads the eye through the outstretched limbs from one set of figures or dancers to the next. When questioned as to why he was so drawn to the artwork of the Bushmen he replied: “When thinking over and contemplating these traces of the past, we feel a deep sympathy with the soul of these men, reincarnating something of their thought in ourselves, and so,

resuscitating in our minds part of their secret life.”5 As the artist-shaman he invites us to participate in this dance of life that we too may be lifted out of our reality into a trance – like or elevated state by either participating in the dance or allowing ourselves to be absorbed by the artwork.

R 900 000 - R 1200 000

Marion Arnold observed that Stern’s still life paintings are among her most sumptuous and sensuous images.1 For Irma Stern, still life was the ideal genre in which to experiment and assert her confidence in her artistic talent. Painted in 1935, a year after her divorce from Dr Johannes Prinz, the choice of executing such a finished work in the very permanent yet delicate medium of gouache is representative of Irma’s new found freedom. Stern composed the still life paintings in her studio using her favourite objects, many acquired on her travels both within and beyond the borders of South Africa. The impersonal nature of the vase, tray and white cloth in this composition serve to entice the viewer to focus instead on the items which they contain.

“In this flower-piece, the delicacy of the gouache medium captures the ethereal quality of the yellow and orange poppies, and the tight composition, with the blooms reaching out to the edge of the picture, reflects the exuberance of Stern’s best still-lifes.”2 Irma Stern was always a master colourist and in this masterpiece the viewer can imbue many of the colours which she chose with emotive connotations: chartreuse (confidence, prosperity, travel and growth), tangerine (new ideas, increased vigour) and a full spectrum of blues ranging from sky to ultramarine (intuition, generosity, travel, harmony). Furthermore the inclusion of yellow Iceland poppies, a naartjie, long associated with prosperity and happiness, and apples emblematic of knowledge, all serve to underscore Stern’s growth exhibited at this time as an artist of merit.

Given the marriage of expressionism and keen observation, this painting demonstrates Stern’s confidence with the often challenging medium of gouache. The surety of Irma’s hand can be clearly seen in the composition and exuberant use of colour in her middle period. This work was included in the Standard Bank Gallery’s Irma Stern: Expression of a Journey Exhibition in 2003. Inspired by her numerous travels, it is truly a work that cements the visual legacy she left behind. P. D.

SPRINGTIME

signed oil on board 65 by 39cm ILLUSTRATED

R 200 000 - R 250 000

After Francois Krige’s death in 1994, an astonishing number of previously unseen works were discovered in his studio. According to Justin Fox, Krige’s nephew: ‘Still life is the genre in which Krige was to make his most important contribution to South African painting.’1 In this work, Springtime, one sees an abundance of spring flowers contained within the composition by a rough mud wall. This work thereby represents a visual bridging of the genre of still life and landscape painting. This subject matter occupied much of Krige’s productivity after moving to Montagu in 1967. A strong comparison can be made between this work and the body of work produced by Claude Monet in Giverny. Monet‘s time in Giverny was spent planting his garden in colour groupings which he then left to grow wild. Krige on the other hand benefitted from the wild flowers which grow in profusion in this area. Given Krige’s love for the landscape and nostalgia with which these works were rendered, it can be said that Montagu was Krige’s Giverny P.D. 1 Justin Fox, The Life and Art of François Krige, Fernwood Press, Cape Town, 2000, p 98

WILDEPAD IN DIE KNYSNA BOS

signed; inscribed with the title on the reverse oil on canvas 70,5 by 44,5cm ILLUSTRATED

R 400 000 - R 500 000

Naudé began his career as an artist focused on becoming a portraitist. His choices of attending the Slade under Alfonse Legros and the Munich Kunst Akademie under Franz von Lenbach showed his intent to master the human figure. His process of becoming an artist began with a mastery of construction drawing under Legros. His mentor’s affiliation was to the Realist movement, embodied by the plein air painters of Fountainbleau, in which everyday scenes including workers at their labours were allotted great credence. Naudé moved to Fountainbleau in 1895 where he could work among the artists of the area. Satyrs in a Forest painted in 1897, refers stylistically and thematically back to his time spent in London and the prevailing Victorian Romantics and their interest in the romantic myths of antiquity. The Wood Carriers and Two Figures working in the Afternoon Light were painted on his return to South Africa and reflect the Realist movement and the works of artist such as Gustave Courbet. Naudé found portrait commissions scarce and slowly became more enthused with the landscape. His style developed into a form of Impressionism for which he achieved his critical acclaim of which Wildepad in die Knysna Bos, Breede River Reflections and Amalfi Coast are all representative examples.

Pierneef visited Namibia initially on the insistence of friends who had travelled or lived there. He did so in 1923 and again in 1924. This new vista was important to the artist’s development on a number of levels; stylistically these works fused his visual languages of Impressionism with naturalistic observation. It was from this time in Namibia that the artist began to employ trees and mountains as compositional devices in the landscape for dramatic effect to express vastness and monumentality. The colouration and aesthetic of the landscape propagated a new palette of sun-baked hues with crisp-edged shadows. The artist also drew attention to the subtle gradation of earth tones visible in the Namibian sky. Most of these paintings were done early or late in the day, to avoid the extreme heat and exposure of the Namibian sun. Painting at these times necessitated a rapid technique which gave the work an energised and lively quality, fusing naturalistic observation with Impressionistic application of paint. After Namibia the artist’s work became more assured, compositionally powerful and finely nuanced than before. The following three works date from this period. Pierneef enjoyed a successful exhibition in July 1923 in Windhoek, where most of the works sold; an indication of the appreciation Namibian buyers had for the artist’s observation, compositions, palette and vision of the area.

Photograph of Peter Green taken outside his house in 1873; from the Mansell Collection The history of the island of Tristan da Cunha is fascinating, not the least of which are the stories surrounding the numerous shipwrecks along its shores. Situated in the centre of the South Atlantic ocean (roughly 37˚ south and 12˚ west) some 2800kms from the Cape of Good Hope and 3200kms from South America, it is currently the most remote inhabited island in the world.

1161 OBVERSE

Born in Holland in 1808, Peter Green was shipwrecked at Tristan da Cunha in October 1836. From 1865 until his death in 1902 he acted as spokesman for the islanders who held him in high regard. He was already 70 years old at the time of the ‘Mabel Clark’ sinking - when 16 members of the 22 man crew were saved - and 84 when the Italian barque, the ‘Italia’, ran aground on the 3rd of October 1892 and the islanders rescued the crew before the vessel went down.

IMPORTANT NOTICE TO PROSPECTIVE BIDDERS Glossary of Cataloguing Terms The following are examples of the terminology used in this catalogue. Please note that any statement made in this catalogue as to authorship, attribution, period, date, age, culture, source, provenance, condition or origin for any property are qualified statements, not to be taken as a statement of fact, and are made subject to the provisions of the Conditions of Business and Terms of Sale by Auction printed in this catalogue. We reserve the right in forming our opinion, to consult and rely upon any expert or authority considered by us to be reliable. Ceramics Fine Meissen Cup and Saucer; circa 1735 This title states three things: the cup and saucer are in excellent condition, both pieces were made at the Meissen factory, and they were made around the year 1735. The adjective ‘fine’ is the only adjective used in a title to describe condition of important lots. Meissen Cup and a Saucer, circa 1735 This states that the cup and saucer were made at the Meissen factory around 1735, but it also indicates that the cup and saucer may not have been ‘born’ together. Meissen Cup and Saucer, 1730-50 This states that the cup and saucer were made at the Meissen factory some time between 1730 and 1750. Meissen Cup and Saucer, dated 1735 This states that the cup and saucer were made at the Meissen factory and that the date 1735 appears within the decoration, although it may not be the actual year of manufacture. Only in the case of factories such as Sêvres, Frankenthal and Vienna, which incorporated date letters or numbers into their marks, does the term ‘dated’ mean the actual year of manufacture. Meissen Cup and Saucer, 19th Century This states that the cup and saucer are of the factory Meissen, and of the century specified. Meissen Cup and Saucer This title without a date simply states that the pieces were made at the Meissen factory, but does not specify when, implying that their age is questionable. Works of Art 1 Thomas Baines In our opinion a work by the artist. When the artist’s forename(s) is not known, a series of asterisks, followed by the surname of the artist, whether preceded by an initial or not, indicates that in our opinion the work is by the artist named. 2 Attributed to Thomas Baines In our opinion probably a work by the artist but less certainty as to authorship is expressed than in the preceding category. 3 Studio of Thomas Baines In our opinion a work by an unknown hand in the studio of the artist which may or may not have been executed under the artist’s direction. 4 Circle of Thomas Baines In our opinion a work by an as yet unidentified but distinct hand, closely associated with the named artist but not necessarily his pupil. 5 Style of …: Follower of Thomas Baines

In our opinion this is a work by a painter working in the artist’s style, contemporary or nearly contemporary, but not necessarily his pupil.

208 • DECORATIVE AND FINE ARTS

6 Manner of Thomas Baines In our opinion a work in the style of the artist and of a later date. 7 After Thomas Baines In our opinion a copy of a known work of the artist. 8 The term signed and/or dated and/or inscribed means that in our opinion the signature and/or date and/or inscription are from the hand of the artist. 9 The term bears a signature and/or date and/or inscription means that in our opinion the signature and/or date and/or inscription have been added by another hand. 10 Dimensions are given height before width. 11 Pictures are executed in oil on canvas and framed unless otherwise stated. Sculpture Casts in bronze, terracotta and other material are catalogued with the full name and dates of the artist who created the original model. In most cases, however, this does not mean that the cast is by the hand of the artist of that precise date, but rather cast after the model by that artist. Upholstered Furniture Whilst every care is taken in cataloguing these items, no guarantee can be given to the originality of the timber covered by upholstery of fabric. Condition of Lots Offered for Sale We are pleased to give a condition report on request. Nevertheless, intending buyers are reminded that all lots are sold as shown and their attention is drawn to Clause 14 of the Conditions of Business. The absence of reference to condition of the lot in the catalogue description does not imply that the lot is free from faults or imperfections.

CONDITIONS OF BUSINESS Stephan Welz & Company (Pty) Limited, hereinafter referred to as Swelco, carries on business (whether with actual or prospective buyers and sellers or consignors requiring inspection, appraisal or valuation of property or persons reading catalogues or otherwise) on the following terms and conditions and on such other terms, conditions and notices as may be set out in any relevant catalogue.

8.

a) give to Swelco his/her name and address and, if so requested, proof of identity; b) pay to Swelco (see method of payment options to Stephan Welz & Company (Pty) Limited the ‘total amount due’;

The contents of any catalogue are subject to amendment by the posting of notices, by oral announcement made by the auctioneer prior to or during the sale, or by way of an agreement in writing signed by the parties concerned.

c) any payments by a buyer to Swelco may be applied by Swelco towards any sums owing by the buyer to Swelco on any account whatever without regard to any directions of the buyer or his/her agent, whether express or implied.

The definitions of words and phrases with special meanings appear in Condition 41.

9.

Conditions mainly concerning Buyers 1.

The buyer All lots will be invoiced to the name and address given at the time of registration and the issue of an allocated buyer’s number and cannot be transferred to other names and addresses. The highest bidder will be the buyer at the ‘hammer price’ and any dispute will be settled at the auctioneer’s absolute discretion. Every bidder will be deemed to act as principal unless there is in force a written acknowledgement by Swelco that he/she acts as agent on behalf of the named principal.

2.

Minimum increment The auctioneer will have the right to refuse any bid which does not exceed the previous bid by at least 5% or by such other proportion as the auctioneer will in his/her absolute discretion direct.

3.

The premium A buyer’s premium of 12% is payable on the hammer price for lots selling in excess of R5,000 and at 15% for lots selling at R5,000 or less for Fine and Decorative Arts, Books, Collectables, Jewellery, Silver, Furniture, Watches, Clocks, Carpets and Ceramics. A buyer’s premium of 17% is payable on the hammer price for Postage Stamps, Postal History, Coins, Medals, Militaria, Memorabilia and Models. VAT at the prevailing rate is applicable on such premium irrespective of the buyer’s domicile. The buyer agrees that Swelco, when acting as agent for the seller, may also receive commission from the seller in accordance with Condition 18.

4.

Valued Added Tax (VAT) Swelco acts as agent on behalf of the seller and should the seller be registered as a South African VAT vendor and has informed Swelco that his lots must be charged with VAT, then such lots will be indicated in the catalogue with the symbol “†” and VAT at the prescribed rate will be charged on the hammer price and will be payable by the buyer.

5.

Absentee bids Upon request, Swelco shall execute absentee bids on behalf of intending buyers. Absentee bids are a service provided by Swelco for the buyers’ benefit and Swelco cannot be held responsible for errors or omissions with respect to the bidding process. Lots will be bought as cheaply as is allowed by other bids placed and the seller’s reserves. In the event of identical bids, the earliest will take precedence. When absentee bids are placed by telephone they are accepted at the buyer’s risk, and must be confirmed prior to the sale by letter or facsimile. To ensure a satisfactory service, bidders are urged most strongly to send bids so that they are received at least 24 hours before a sale.

6.

Telephone bids Swelco will do its best to accommodate telephone bids from buyers who have made proper arrangements at least 24 hours prior to the sale and subject to the availability of sufficient telephone lines. Because this method cannot be entirely free from risk of communication breakdown, Swelco cannot be held responsible for losses arising from missed bids. Stephan Welz & Co. reserves the right to record telephone bidding, and all bidders consent to such recording.

7.

Company property It is the general policy of Swelco to act as agent only for the seller. Circumstances do, however, arise from time to time where Swelco or its director/s may have an interest in a lot or lots being offered. In the catalogue, such lots are designated “*” next to the lot number.

Credit terms Swelco may, before the auction, at its absolute discretion, agree credit terms with the buyer under which the buyer will be entitled to take possession of lots purchased up to an agreed amount in value in advance of payment by a determined future date of the ‘total amount due’.

10. Collection of purchases The ownership of the lots purchased will not pass to the buyer until he/ she has made payment in full to Swelco (see method of payment options to Stephan Welz & Company (Pty) Limited) of the ‘total amount due’. After an auction, only limited assistance with packing and/or loading of purchases is available from the staff of Swelco. Where such assistance is rendered, no liability will devolve on Swelco or its staff for any damage that may arise, from whatever cause, during such packing and/or loading. The buyer will at his/her own expense collect the lot purchased immediately after the auction and will be responsible for all packing, removal, storage and insurance charges.

11. Buyer’s responsibility for lots purchased The buyer will be responsible for the loss of or damage to lots purchased from the time of auction to date of collection. Swelco nor its servants or agents will thereafter be responsible for any loss or damage of any kind, whether caused by negligence or otherwise, while any lot is in its custody or under its control.

12. Import, Export, Copyright Restrictions and Licences 12.1 Swelco makes no representations or warrantees as to whether any lot is subject to import, export, copyright and licence restrictions. It is the buyer’s sole responsibility to obtain any copyright clearances or any necessary import, export or other licence required by law, including licences required under the Convention of the International Trade in Endangered Species (CITES). 12.2 No firearms will be delivered to any purchaser until he/she has produced for the inspection of agents for the auctioneers, a valid firearm licence or collector’s permit in terms of the laws of South Africa in respect of each lot purchased. No sale will be cancelled without proof to the satisfaction of Swelco that application was made for such licence or collector’s permit. The onus is on the purchaser to apply for such licence or permit.

13. Remedies for non-payment or failure to collect purchases 13.1 If any lot is not paid for in full and taken away in accordance with Conditions 8 and 10, or if there is any other breach of either of those conditions, Swelco as agent of the seller will, at its absolute discretion and without prejudice to any other rights it may have, be entitled to exercise one or more of the following rights and remedies: a) to proceed against the buyer for payment and/or damages for breach of contract; b) to rescind the sale of that or any other lots sold to the defaulting buyer at the same or at any other auction; c) to resell the lot or cause it to be resold by public auction or private sale and the defaulting buyer will be liable to pay to Swelco any resulting deficiency in the ‘total amount due’ (after deduction of any part payment and addition of resale costs) and any surplus will belong to the seller; d) to remove, store and insure the lots at the expense of the defaulting buyer and, in the case of storage, either at Swelco’s premises or elsewhere;


e) to charge interest at a rate not exceeding 2% per month on the ‘total amount due’ to the extent it remains unpaid for more than 5 working days after the day of the auction; f) to retain that or any other lot sold to the same buyer at the same time or at any other auction and release it only after payment of the ‘total amount due’; g) to reject or ignore any bids made by or on behalf of the defaulting buyer at any future auctions or require and receive a deposit in an amount determined by Swelco before accepting any bids in future; h) to apply any proceeds of sale then due or at any time thereafter becoming due to the defaulting buyer towards settlement of the ‘total amount due’ and to exercise a lien on any property of the defaulting buyer which is in Swelco’s possession for any purpose. 13.2 Legal Costs The buyer shall be responsible for the payment of Swelco’s legal costs calculated on the scale as between attorney and its own client incurred in the enforcement of Swelco’s rights irrespective of whether Swelco institute legal proceedings or not.

14. Liability of Swelco and sellers a) Goods auctioned are usually of some age. All goods are sold “voetstoets” (as is) with all faults and imperfections and errors of description. Illustrations in catalogues are for identification only. Buyers should satisfy themselves prior to sale as to the condition of each lot and should exercise and rely on their own judgement as to whether the lot accords with its description or not. Subject to the obligations accepted by Swelco under this condition, neither the seller, Swelco, its servants or agents is/are responsible for errors of descriptions or for the genuineness or authenticity of any lot. No warranty whatever is given by Swelco, its servants or agents, or any seller to any buyer in respect of any lot, and any express or implied conditions or warranties are hereby excluded. b) Any lot which proves to be a ‘deliberate forgery’ (which will only be the case if an expert appointed by Swelco for such purposes confirms same in writing) may be returned by the buyer (as his sole remedy hereunder or at law) to Swelco within 21 days of the date of auction in the same condition in which it was at the time of the auction, accompanied by a statement of defects, the number of the lot, and the date of the auction at which it was purchased. If Swelco is satisfied that the item is a ‘deliberate forgery’ and that the buyer has and is able to transfer a good and marketable title to the lot, free from any third-party claims, the sale will be set aside and any amount paid in respect of the lot will be refunded, subject to the express condition that the buyer will have no rights or claims against Swelco if: i) the description in the catalogue at the date of the sale was in accordance with the then generally accepted opinion of scholars and experts or fairly indicated that there was conflict of such opinion; or ii) the only method of establishing at the date of publication of the catalogue that the lot was a ‘deliberate forgery’ was by means of a scientific process not generally accepted for use until after publication of the catalogue, or by a process which was unreasonably expensive or impractical. c) A buyer’s claim under this condition will be limited to any amount paid in respect of the lot and will not extend to any loss or damage of whatsoever nature suffered, or expense incurred by him/her. d) The benefit of this condition will not be assignable and will rest solely and exclusively in the buyer who, for the purpose of this condition, will be and only be the person to whom the original invoice is made out by Swelco in respect of the lot sold.

15. Treatment & Condition of Gemstones Traditionally, gemstones have been treated by a variety of techniques to enhance colour and generally to improve their appearance. Typically, rubies and sapphires have been heat treated and emeralds have been treated by oil or resin to improve colour and clarity. These or other techniques, such as dyeing, irradiation, coating and impregnation, may be used on other gemstones. Although it is widely believed that heat treatments are permanent, buyers should assume that any treatment may not be permanent and that over time special care of the stone may be required. Prospective buyers are reminded that, unless the catalogue description specifically states that a stone is natural, Swelco have assumed that some form of treatment may have been used and that such treatment may not be permanent.

To the extent that Swelco has laboratory reports containing specific information on the treatment of a stone, these reports are made available for review by potential buyers. Available reports from internationally recognised gemmological laboratories will be noted in the description of the item. New forms of treatments and new scientific methods to discern them are constantly being developed. Consequently, there may be a lack of consensus among laboratories as to whether gemstones have been treated, the extent of the treatment or the permanence of the treatment. References in the catalogue descriptions to certificates or reports issued by gemmological laboratories are included only for the information of buyers, and Sweclo accepts no responsibility for the accuracy, terms or information contained in such certificates or reports. Statements in the catalogue regarding the condition of lots in this sale usually appear in the description. However, the absence of any such reference does not imply that a lot is in perfect condition or completely free from wear or imperfections. Swelco will be pleased to offer condition reports on all lots of the sale to potential buyers.

16. Wristwatches All wristwatches are sold as viewed and cannot be returned on the grounds that repairs have been carried out or parts supplied by anyone other than the named makers. Watches may not be taken apart whilst on view. Prospective buyers or their agents wishing to do so should make an appointment with the Watch Department for a private view the week before the sale. Although condition reports may be given on request, such reports are statements of opinion only and may not specify all mechanical replacements or imperfections in the movement, case and dial. All dimensions are approximate. Swelco does not guarantee the authenticity of any individual component parts, such as wheels, hands, crowns, crystals, screws, bracelets and leather bands, since subsequent repairs and restoration work may have resulted in the replacement of original parts. Straps made of material derived from endangered or otherwise protected species (i.e. alligator and crocodile) are not sold with the watches and are for display purposes only. Swelco reserve the right to remove these straps prior to shipping. Furthermore, in reference to watch bands, Swelco does not guarantee the material of manufacture.

Conditions mainly concerning Sellers and Consignors 17. Inspections Swelco shall inspect items brought to its offices or viewed at seller’s domain for potential auction and will advise owners as to the value and suitability for sale within the Swelco auction trade markets. Items of insufficient value or unsuitable for the auction trade must be collected within 5 working days after having being notified. Items not collected will be sold in terms of clause 33. The service is without charge, though in certain instances it may be necessary to charge out-of-pocket and travelling expenses where the seller is out of town. Swelco reserves the right to accept or reject any item not meeting Swelco’s criteria for the auction trade markets.

18. Seller’s commission A seller’s commission of 12% is payable on the hammer price for lots selling in excess of R5,000 and 15% for lots selling for R5,000 or less for Fine and Decorative Arts, Books, Collectables, Jewellery, Silver, Furniture, Watches, Clocks, Carpets and Ceramics. A seller’s commission of 15% is payable on the hammer price for Postage Stamps, Postal History, Coins, Medals, Militaria, Memorabilia and Models. VAT at the prevailing rate is applicable on such commission irrespective of the seller’s domicile.

19. Illustration of items in catalogue The seller has an option to have items illustrated in the auction catalogue. The cost of illustration is R500 for a full page and R350 for less than a full page. VAT at the prevailing rate is payable on this amount. Swelco reserves the right to illustrate or not to illustrate a lot at their discretion.

20. Warranty of title and availability a) The seller warrants to Swelco and to the buyer that he/she is the true owner of the property or is properly authorised by the true owner and is able to transfer good and marketable title to the property, free from any third-party claims.

CAPE TOWN, 5 & 6 OCTOBER 2010 • 215


b) The seller of any property not held by Swelco on its premises or under its control, warrants and undertakes to Swelco and the buyer that the property will be available and in deliverable state on demand of the buyer. c) The seller indemnifies Swelco, its servants and agents and the buyer against any loss or damage suffered by either in consequence of any breach of (a) or (b) above on the part of the seller.

21. Late entries The general policy of Swelco is that once the cut-off date for the forthcoming auction has passed no other items will be accepted as late entries for that auction.

22. VAT a) VAT status The seller must give Swelco all relevant information as to his/her registered South African VAT status concerning the lot to be sold, and Swelco is entitled to rely on this information. If the seller is VAT registered he has the option of informing Swelco, who acts as agent on behalf of the seller, as to whether VAT must be charged on the hammer price or not. Once a lot has been designated vatable, a “†” symbol will appear alongside the lot number in the catalogue indicating that the hammer price will be charged VAT at the ruling rate. Swelco, acting as agent for the seller, will pay the VAT over to the seller in terms of clause 29 - Payment of sale proceeds. b) VAT on imported goods Overseas sellers consigning items for sale in South Africa will be liable for VAT on the importation of goods, at the prevailing rate, in terms of Section 13 (2) of the Customs and Excise Act. VAT will be calculated in terms of Section 65 of the Customs Act based on the transaction method, i.e. the actual amount paid or payable as a result of the contract of sale or if no sale and imported by intermediaries and sold by auction after importation, that value. Value Added Tax at the applicable rate will be deducted from the net hammer price on all such imports sent to Swelco for sale at auction together with any other costs relating to customs examination, customs clearing and delivery costs to our offices. Swelco will pay such VAT deducted to the relevant South African Revenue Services department on behalf of the seller.

23. Reserves The seller will be entitled to place, prior to the auction, a reserve on any lot, being the minimum ‘hammer price’ at which that lot may be treated as sold. A reserve once placed by the seller may not be changed without the consent of Swelco. Swelco may at its option sell at a ‘hammer price’ below the reserve, but in any such cases the sale proceeds to which the seller is entitled will be the same as they would have, had the sale been at the reserve. The auctioneer may open the bidding on any lot by placing a bid on behalf of the seller. The auctioneer may further bid on behalf of the seller, up to the amount of the reserve, by placing responsive or consecutive bids for a lot. The reserve, if any, on any one lot will not exceed the low estimate as published in the catalogue. Items under R500 will be sold without reserve.

24. Authority to deduct commission and expenses The seller authorises Swelco to deduct commission at the ‘stated’ rates, ‘illustration’ and ‘expenses’ from the ‘hammer price’ and acknowledges Swelco’s right to retain the premium payable by the buyers in accordance with Condition 3.

25. Written valuations The provision of written valuations for Insurance, Sale by Private Treaty, Estate Duty or other purposes is an important part of Swelco’s services. Valuations can be arranged through any of Swelco’s offices. Valuation fees vary according to the nature and amount of work to be undertaken and are subject to VAT at the prevailing rate, but will always be highly competitive. Swelco shall refund the valuation fee charged if the property is consigned to Swelco for sale within 4 months of the valuation.

26. Insurance Swelco will insure property (other than ‘motor vehicles’) consigned to it which is held at its business premises or place of auction, or put under its control for sale and may, at its discretion, insure property put under its control for any other purpose. The insurance cover provided will at all times be subject to the insurance excess applicable to all claims and

216 • DECORATIVE AND FINE ARTS

the terms and conditions of any relevant Swelco policy that is in force from time to time and Swelco assumes no additional liability for the property held in their possession. Save for the aforesaid insurance the property will remain at all times at the risk of the seller or consignor and neither Swelco nor its servants or agents will be responsible for any loss or damage, whether caused by negligence or otherwise. The basis of valuation for insurance purposes will be the mid price between Swelco’s low and high estimates or the amount agreed upon in writing between Swelco and the owner and/or representative of the owner thereof. If there is a reserve then such reserve will be regarded as the insured amount. The insurance will cease immediately when the property is collected by the buyer or after the final date and time for collection as stipulated in the conditions have passed, or once delivery to the consignee (or the consignee’s nominee) at the address agreed by prior arrangement. In no event will Swelco be liable for damage to glass or picture frames. Swelco reserves the right to deduct from any insurance payout commission at the stated rates, illustration and other reasonable expenses before remitting the balance to the seller.

27. Electrical and mechanical goods The seller or consignor of electrical or mechanical goods warrants and undertakes to Swelco that the date on which the same are consigned to Swelco or put under Swelco’s control and except as previously disclosed to Swelco are safe if reasonably used for the purpose for which they were designed and free from any defect not obvious on external inspection which could prove dangerous to human life or health and hereby indemnifies Swelco, its servants or agents, against any loss or damage suffered by any of them in consequence of any breach of the above warranty or undertaking.

28. Rescission of the sale If before Swelco remits the ‘sale proceeds’ to the seller, the buyer makes a claim to rescind the sale under Condition 14 or otherwise and Swelco is of the opinion that the claim is justified, Swelco is authorised to rescind the sale and refund the buyer any amount paid to Swelco in respect of the lot.

29. Payment of sale proceeds Subject to Condition 20 above, Swelco will remit the ‘sale proceeds’ for Fine and Decorative Arts, Books, Collectables, Jewellery, Silver, Furniture, Watches, Clocks, Carpets and Ceramics to the seller not later than 1 month after the date of auction or, in the case of Postage Stamps, Postal History, Coins, Medals, Militaria, Memorabilia and Models within 45 days after the auction, but if by that date Swelco has not received the ‘total amount due’ from the buyer, then Swelco will remit the ‘sale proceeds’ within 5 working days after the date on which the ‘total amount due’ is received from the buyer. If credit terms have been agreed between Swelco and the buyer, Swelco will remit to the seller the sale proceeds not later than 30 or 45 days after the auction unless otherwise agreed by the seller. If the buyer fails to pay Swelco the ‘total amount due’ within 3 weeks after the auction, Swelco will endeavour to notify the seller and take the seller’s instructions as to the appropriate course of action and, so far as in Swelco’s opinion it is practicable, will assist the seller to recover the ‘total amount due’ from the buyer. If circumstances do not permit Swelco to take instructions from the seller, the seller authorizes Swelco at the seller’s expense to agree special terms for payment of the ‘total amount due’, to remove, store and insure the lot sold, to settle claims made by or against the buyer on such terms as Swelco will in its absolute discretion think fit, to take such steps as are necessary to collect moneys due by the buyer to the seller and if necessary to rescind the sale and refund money to the buyer. If, notwithstanding that the buyer fails to pay to Swelco the ‘total amount due’ within 3 weeks after the auction, Swelco remits the ‘sale proceeds’ to the seller, the ownership of the lot shall pass to Swelco.

30. Charges for withdrawn lots Where a sale is cancelled for any reason whatsoever, including but not limited to a claim of ownership to the lot by a third party, Swelco may charge the full buyer’s premium and seller’s commission on Swelco’s middle estimate of the low and high estimate of the property withdrawn together with Value Added Tax thereon and “expenses” incurred in relation to the property.

31. Rights to photographs and illustrations The seller gives Swelco full and absolute right to photograph, illustrate, or otherwise produce images, of any lot placed in its hands for sale and to use such photographs and illustrations and any photographs and illustrations provided by the seller at any time at its absolute discretion (whether or not in connection with the auction).


32. Provenance Swelco may print in the catalogue the history of ownership of a lot if such information contributes to scholarship or is otherwise well known and assists in distinguishing the item. However, the identity of the seller or previous owners may not be disclosed for a variety of reasons, including a seller’s request for confidentiality or because the identity of prior owners is unknown.

33. Unsold lots and uncollected items Swelco reserves the right to sell any unsold lot within 5 working days from the auction date, at the reserve price on behalf of the seller. Where any lot fails to sell after the above period, Swelco will notify the seller accordingly. Uncollected items not suitable for auction must be collected within 5 days after being notified of their unsuitability as per clause 17 and failing timeous collection they will be dealt with on the basis set out in paragraph 33(c) below. The seller must make arrangements either to re-offer the lot for sale or to collect the lot. If such arrangements are not made: a) within 7 days of notification, the seller will be responsible for any removal and storage expenses; b) within 3 months of notification, Swelco will have the right to sell the lot at public auction without reserve and to deduct from the ‘hammer price’ any sum owing to Swelco including (without limitation) removal, storage, commission at the stated rates, and other reasonable expenses before remitting the balance to the seller; c) if Swelco is unable to sell the lot at a public auction as contemplated in paragraph 33(b) above then Swelco is entitled to sell the lot and any uncollected items without auction at the highest attainable price and to deduct from the selling price any sum owing to Swelco including (without limitation) removal, storage, commission at the stated rate, and other reasonable expenses before remitting the balance, if any, to the seller. Any shortfall which may be owing by the seller to Swelco consequent upon the seller’s failure to collect the unsold lot shall be payable together with interest and legal costs on demand.

Any notice or process delivered on any party in connection with any matter or subject arising out of this agreement or any notice shall be deemed to have been delivered if handed to any responsible person at the domicilium chosen by any party and it shall not be necessary to hand such process or notice to any party personally.
