The present work was acquired by the Servanti Family from Jacob Ruppert, the brewer who owned the Yankees – for their restaurant The Clam Broth (with the bronzes illustrated in an archival photograph from the 1940’s). The restaurant was a famous landmark in Hoboken, opened in 1899, with clientele ranging from Woodrow Wilson to local celebrity Frank Sinatra. When the restaurant was sold in 1970, the collection of Remington bronzes went to Marie Servanti Garibaldi and her husband Dr. Louis Garibaldi. Their only child was the famous jurist Marie Garibaldi – the first woman to serve on the New Jersey Supreme Court and at her death she bequeathed the collection to the Newark Museum.

231 JOHN CLYMER (1907-1989) Territorial Dispute oil on board 24 x 40 inches signed lower left: John Clymer Widely recognized for recording western history and wildlife in his art, John Ford Clymer was born in Ellensburg, Washington in 1907. Clymer developed an interest in art from a very early age. Following high school, he moved to Vancouver, British Columbia, where he worked as an illustrator and attended art school. In 1930, Clymer attended the Wilmington Academy in Delaware, where he encountered and found inspiration from the illustrator and western artist, N.C. Wyeth. In 1932, Clymer married his childhood sweetheart Doris and moved to Westport, Connecticut to join the artist gathering there. During World War II, Clymer and illustrator Tom Lovell joined the Marines. Stationed in Washington State, they spent their time painting war illustrations. After the war Clymer decided to create historical paintings. In order to accurately depict the West in his work, Clymer researched and traveled throughout the region. In 1966, Clymer and his wife settled down in the quiet western town of Jackson, Wyoming, to better pursue Clymer’s interest in painting local western people and regional wildlife. Clymer received many honors, including the National Academy of Western Art’s Prix de West Award and the National Museum of Wildlife Art’s Rungius Medal. His hometown of Ellensburg, Washington established the Clymer Museum. Clymer’s family generously donated the contents of his studio to the National Museum of Wildlife Art in Jackson Hole, Wyoming. In Territorial Dispute Clymer combines the drama with which he typically depicted western and Native American subjects with the subject matter of wildlife. While many of Clymer’s wildlife paintings are leisurely and even peaceful, in this painting Clymer elevates the subject to a new level, treating it with the same intensity with which he completed his epic historical scenes.

242 N.C. WYETH (1882-1945) Untitled (Portrait of a Cowboy), 1908 oil on canvas on board 10 ½ x 10 ½ inches initialed lower center: N.C.W. Newell Convers Wyeth, better known as N.C. Wyeth, grew up on a farm in Massachusetts at the end of the nineteenth century. Wyeth showed his artistic talent early, and studied at the Massachusetts Normal Art School in Boston. In 1902, Wyeth received the opportunity that would shape the rest of his career and firmly cement his place in the canon of American art—to study with the father of American illustration, Howard Pyle. Arguably the most successful of Pyle’s protégés, Wyeth encapsulated all of his teachings and within two years was well on his way to establishing his own career. Wyeth ventured west in 1904 and 1906, spending vital time observing, studying, and absorbing all the rich subject matter of the west. In his own words, Wyeth described this early attraction, saying “The West appealed to me as it would to a boy; a sort of external effervescence of spirit seemed to be all that substantiated my work.”1 With trips to both Arizona and Colorado, Wyeth not only worked as a cowboy but also lived with the Navajo for a short time. He received numerous commissions for western subjects from Scribner’s, The Saturday Evening Post, and many more. Executed in 1908, Wyeth’s Untitled (Portrait of a Cowboy) undoubtedly draws inspiration from Wyeth’s personal experience in the West just two years prior. One of five illustrations that Wyeth created for Hamlin Garland’s short story “The Outlaw and the Girl,” published in the The Ladies’ Home Journal in 1908, this piece served to introduce the male protagonist of the story. Billed as ‘A Singular Romance of a Girl in the Rocky Mountains,’ the story follows New Yorker Alice Mansfield’s ill-fated travels into the West. When her surveying party becomes stranded, Alice holes up in a deserted mountain cabin where she meets the rugged ex-Rough Rider, Hall McCord. As the story progresses it becomes clear that McCord is an outlaw, and like all good westerns the story ends with a tragic clash between McCord and the Sheriff’s posse—leaving the girl heartbroken. Wyeth’s depiction of McCord draws upon iconic images of the American cowboy. Replete with hat, bandana, plaid shirt, and chiseled features—Wyeth presents McCord as a dashing romantic interest for the protagonist Alice. The shadow dropping across McCord’s face, as well as his gaze—cast to the side—hint at a darker side to this seemingly wholesome character. 1

248 FRANK TENNEY JOHNSON (1874-1939) Branding a Maverick, 1913 oil on canvas 34 x 24 inches signed lower left: Frank Tenney Johnson - 1913 Frank Tenney Johnson was born in 1874 in Big Grove, Iowa, near the old Overland Trail. While the trail had ceased to be the main thoroughfare it once was, the tales of explorers, covered wagons, and Indian parties filled Johnson’s mind with ideas from childhood. After his mother passed away, Johnson’s father sold the family farm and moved them to Milwaukee in 1888. After attending high school in Milwaukee for one year, Johnson dropped out, determined to pursue his artistic endeavors fulltime. Johnson scrounged up what little money he had and enrolled in art classes taught by the watercolorist F.W. Heine. After a short apprenticeship with Heine, Johnson began studying with Richard Lorenz, a member of the Society of Western Painters. While continuing his studies, Johnson got a job with a local engraving firm and began to make a small living from his work with commercial entities throughout the city. Johnson saved his money and spent what he could to travel to the Indian country in South Dakota, to study and sketch from life. With the death of his aunt in 1895, Johnson inherited enough money to travel to New York to further his studies. He joined the Art Students League and studied under John Henry Twachtman. Johnson’s money ran out after five months, and he returned to Milwaukee. In 1986 he met and married his life-long love Vinnie Reeve and in 1902 they moved back to New York. Johnson then began his studies at the New York School of Art with Robert Henri and William Merritt Chase. Looking for illustrative work in the city, Johnson had the opportunity to create advertisements for Winchester rifles, at which he excelled. Furthermore, he met the editor of Field & Stream, who in 1904 paid for Johnson to take a rail tour of the west. This trip proved to be the most pivotal moment in Johnson’s career. From the Colorado cowboys to the Cheyenne rodeo and back down to Navajo country in New Mexico, Johnson sketched his way across the west. During this venture Johnson not only observed the west, but he truly got his hands dirty. He participated in cattle roundups, branding, and more—experiencing the cowboy way of life from the saddle rather than the studio. Following this influential trip west, Johnson returned to New York and cemented his place as a premier illustrator—sought after by numerous magazines and publishers. In 1912 Johnson made another trip west, where he spent five months travelling through South Dakota, Montana, California, New Mexico, and Colorado. Later that year he became a member of the prestigious Salmagundi Club, a clear sign of his growing success. With the west fresh on his mind, Johnson painted Branding a Maverick in 1913. Unlike some of his contemporaries, Johnson had the hands-on experience from which to depict this classic western scene. During this period Johnson experienced immense commercial success, which allowed him artistic freedom not afforded him in prior years. Able to draw upon his authentic understanding of the west, Johnson did not strictly adhere to the text he illustrated, but rather let his vision dictate the outcome rather than being hemmed in by the constraints of an illustrator. In the 1920’s Johnson moved to Alhambra, California, where he sought to focus on his oil paintings rather than his illustrations. Johnson’s studio became a meeting place for leading western artists like Edward Borein and Charles M. Russell.

281 ARTHUR FITZWILLIAM TAIT (1819-1905) A Slight Chance, 1883 oil on canvas 20 x 30 inches signed lower left: A.F. Tait NY 83 One of America’s earliest sporting artists, Arthur Fitzwilliam Tait was born near Liverpool, England, in 1819. At the age of twelve, Tait secured a position working for Agnew’s, an art dealer in Manchester. During his time with Agnew’s, Tait became an adept lithographer. Largely self-taught, Tait spent his evenings learning to paint by copying works at the Royal Institute. His first taste of the American West came when he assisted George Catlin with his Indian Gallery in London and Paris in the 1840s. In 1850 Tait immigrated to the United States to pursue his career as an artist. Just two years later Currier & Ives began to publish his work, which proved to be the beginning of his rise to fame. Around this same time, Tait traveled to the Adirondack Mountains, where he found great inspiration in the wildlife, landscape, and sporting activities there. The region would continue to inspire Tait’s work for the remainder of his life. Tait not only painted sporting scenes, but also became an avid huntsman and naturalist, which lent an air of authenticity to his work that greatly appealed to the nineteenth-century art market. In 1854 Tait became an associate of the National Academy of Design, and he participated in their annual exhibitions for over fifty years during his long career. Painted in 1883, A Slight Chance epitomizes Tait’s developed technique and intimate knowledge of the Adirondack region. Two hopeful hunters glide across the foreground, the first poised with his shotgun on the bow of the canoe, while the second quietly maneuvers their craft around a log that serves as their last remaining bit of cover. Their prey—a pair of deer—graze in the exposed lush grasses on the opposite bank of the river. Tait depicts the most charged moment of anticipation, the hunters have not yet emerged, but some noise has alerted the wildlife—birds take flight across the river and the deer raise their heads to gaze towards the hunters. The next moment will determine the success or failure of their venture, and as the title implies, they have a slight chance.

285 PAOLO PETROVICH TROUBETZKOY (1866-1938) Catchin’ Up, 1921 bronze 19 x 18 inches inscribed: © 1921 Paul Troubetzkoy stamped: Cire Perdue C. Valsuani Referred to by George Bernard Shaw as “the most astonishing sculptor of modern times,” Paolo Petrovich Troubetzkoy was the son of Russian diplomat Prince Peter Petrovich Troubetzkoy. Born in Lago Maggiore, Italy in 1866 Troubetzkoy spent time in Italy, France, England, the United States, and Russia. While he studied briefly with Ernesto Bazzaro in Milan, Troubetzkoy’s formal artistic education was short-lived and he was largely self-taught. A member of the aristocracy, Troubetzkoy moved freely in the circles of the elite throughout Europe and made a name for himself sculpting portrait busts and statuettes in his note-worthy impressionistic style. Leo Tolstoy, Grand Duchess Elizabeth Feodorovna, Count Sergei Yulyevich Witte, and many others numbered themselves among his clients. Troubetzkoy received early acclaim in Italy and Paris, before exhibiting at the World’s Columbia Exhibition in Chicago in 1893. The following year his bronze Indian Scout won the gold medal at the National Exhibition in Rome. Modeled after performers in Buffalo Bill’s Wild West Show in Milan, Indian Scout serves as an early example of Troubetzkoy’s successful foray into western sculpture. Despite his distinctly European roots, Troubetzkoy also had an intimate connection with America. He may have received his aristocratic name from his Russian father, but he received a prevailing interest in the west from his American mother, opera singer Ada Winans. Troubetzkoy’s star continued to rise, and he saw immense critical success throughout the early 1900s. While in New York for an exhibition at Knoedler & Co in 1914, WWI took hold of the global stage, and Troubetzkoy found it safest to remain stateside. During this period he brought his talent for portraiture from the European elite to the American—among his sitters were Franklin D. Roosevelt, Gertrude Vanderbilt Whitney, and James Van Buren. In 1919 Troubetzkoy won a commission in Los Angeles for a monument honoring Los Angeles Times owner General Harrison Gray Otis, who had passed away in 1917. Inspired by his transcontinental train ride from New York to Los Angeles, Troubetzkoy returned to the western subject matter he had begun exploring decades earlier. It was during this period that he created Catchin’ Up, an intimate portrayal of two cowboys. While Remington and Russell explored the west through a lens of realism, Troubetzkoy brought his emotional impressionism to the subject—a refreshing and powerful take on an iconic American theme.

292 OSCAR BERNINGHAUS (1874-1952) Taos Field of Workers, 1950 oil on canvas 25 x 30 inches signed lower right: O.E. BERNINGHAUS / -50 Oscar E. Berninghaus, born in 1874 in St. Louis, Missouri, displayed his inclination for art at an early age. At sixteen he quit school to work for a lithography company and later attended night classes at the School of Fine Arts in St. Louis. In 1899, the Denver and Rio Grand Railroad hired him to travel west to sketch and produce watercolors of the mountain scenery, people, and villages. It was during this journey that Berninghaus encountered the magic of Taos, the Pueblo, and its Native inhabitants. Berninghaus continued to return to Taos almost every summer for the next twenty-five years. As early as 1905, his work received critical acclaim in the newspapers with some writers comparing him to Frederic Remington. In the summer of 1915, Berninghaus co-founded the famous Taos Society of Artists along with Joseph Henry Sharp, Bert Geer Phillips, Ernest Blumenschein, E.I. Couse, and Herbert Dunton. In 1925, Berninghaus moved permanently to New Mexico where he continued to paint in Taos until the time of his death. For the majority of his career, Berninghaus painted from life—live models and plein air landscapes. However, towards the end of his career the people and terrain of Taos became so ingrained in the artist’s mind that he could paint just as accurately from memory as from life. A cornerstone of the Taos community, Berninghaus earned the trust and respect of Pueblo members, and as a result was given unprecedented access to the kivas and sacred dances. This intimate relationship between artist and subject lends an unshakeable authenticity to Berninghaus’ work. While Russell and Remington viewed the cowboy or the Plains Indians as hallmarks of American art and identity, Berninghaus saw his work and that of his contemporaries in Taos as something undeniably American. He described this, saying “I think the colony in Taos is doing much for American art. From it I think will come a distinctive art, something definitely American—and I do not mean that such will be the case because the American Indian and his environment are the subjects. But the canvases that come from Taos are as definitely American as anything can be.”1 Painted in 1950, just two years prior to the artist’s death, Taos Field of Workers embodies Berninghaus’ fully matured style and the depth of his artistic skill. Larger than many of the figures in his work, the central figures in this painting fill the foreground as they toil to work the land. The Pueblo lies in the distance behind them—the entire scene dwarfed by the towering Sangre de Cristo mountains. Ever an important element in Berninghaus’ work, the enchanting New Mexico light suffuses the entire scene in a warm glow, setting the stage for this daily drama of agrarian survival. 1

303 THOMAS HART BENTON (1889-1975) Study for the Pathfinder, 1925 oil on board 14 x 11 inches signed lower right: T. Benton In 1919 Thomas Hart Benton began his self-commissioned mural series The American Historical Epic, which he conceived of as a series of seventy-five mural panels that would visually tell the history of the United States from the fifteenth century through the 1920s. Benton completed ten panels in the series and placed all of them on display in New York between 1923 and 1928 in the hopes of receiving a formal commission. Although the artist’s efforts did not immediately lead to any commissions, the mural program provided a glimpse into the type of large-scale, public work that would make Benton famous in the following decade. The Pathfinder, now in the collection of the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art (Kansas City, Missouri) was part of the second set of five murals that comprised the series. Study for The Pathfinder is the oil study that Benton used to prepare his largescale painting. Benton, who turned to American subjects with an intensely personal tone, used this series as a way of documenting the progress of American civilization.1 The Pathfinder depicts John Charles Frémont, who was born in 1813 and died in 1890. A relative of the artist’s, Frémont married Jessie Benton, daughter of Thomas Hart Benton’s great uncle. Benton learned of Frémont’s endeavors while working on this mural series and found his muse for the main figure. Frémont gained the nickname Pathfinder in the 1840s when he was leading expeditions through the American frontier and acting as guide along with other legendary figures, like Kit Carson. As a military officer, Frémont led an expedition over the Santa Ynez Mountains during the Mexican-American War to capture Santa Barbara, which lead to the surrender of Mexican General Pío Pico. Frémont’s political career includes a short stint as a U.S. Senator for California as well as presidential candidate for the anti-Lincoln Radical Republicans. Towards the end of his life, Frémont served as governor of the Arizona Territory. In his study for The Pathfinder, with its spatial discord and expressive contours, Benton reflects the upheaval of American society and the turmoil precipitated by its growth. The setting invokes America’s past, before industrialization when Americans lived off the land. The turbulence of the brush strokes and the arresting sharpness of color reflect the changes that modern America inflicted on the land and its people. The subject matter itself, a white mountain man watching a group of Native American hunters, emphasizes a loss of the native values originally associated with American civilization. Focusing on images of the past allowed Benton to “project [a broad range of American experiences] into a style of painting that would be rooted more in the agrarian past than in the urban present but would take into account all those experiences.”2 Ironically Benton used his undeniably modern American style to harken back to the country’s past, challenging change while stylistically echoing it. 1

308 EDWARD POTTHAST (1857-1927) Bright Angel Trail, Grand Canyon, 1911 oil on canvas 30 x 24 inches signed lower left: E Potthast Born in Cincinnati in 1857 to German immigrant parents, Edward Henry Potthast received his education at the McMicken School of Design. Potthast spent over a decade studying with Thomas Noble at McMicken, working as a lithographer and illustrator to support himself during his studies. Throughout the 1880s Potthast traveled to Europe, where he continued his artistic education in Antwerp, Munich, and Paris. In 1896 Potthast moved to New York City, where he found work with popular magazines like Harper’s, Scribner’s, and Century. Potthast also pursued his academic artistic career during this period, exhibiting at the Art Institute of Chicago and the National Academy of Design, where he became an associate member in 1899—the same year he won the Thomas B. Clarke prize for best figure painting. After developing a strong market for his work in New York, Chicago, and Cincinatti, Potthast gave up his commercial lithography work and devoted all of his attention to painting. Most well-known for his sunny impressionistic scenes of Coney Island and Rockaway Beach, Potthast went beyond the New England coast in search of inspiration—he headed west. In 1910 Potthast joined fellow artist Thomas Moran on a Santa Fe Railroad sponsored trip to the Grand Canyon. Along with four other artists, they were also accompanied by Nina Spaulding Stevens, assistant director of the Toledo Museum of Art. She described the moment Potthast first saw the canyon, writing, “The artists were led to the rim with their eyes closed, that the vision might burst upon them for the first time in its entirety. All was still with the silence of infinity.”1 Inspired by the grandeur of the canyon, the quality of light and color, Potthast made several return trips to the Grand Canyon. Painted in 1911, just a year after his first trip to the Grand Canyon, Bright Angel Trail, Grand Canyon evokes the immensity of the canyon and its profound effect upon the artist. A myriad maze of shifting light and color, the landscape of the Grand Canyon proved to be a perfect match for Potthast’s impressionistic style. The small figures of horses and people dot the trail beneath the rim, heading down into the expansive depths. Potthast effectively conveys the enormity of the landscape, placing the human element as a mere footnote, while nature rules supreme. 1

320 KENNETH RILEY (1919-2015) Midnight Solitude acrylic on masonite 12 x 16 inches signed lower right: Kenneth Riley Kenneth Riley attended the Kansas City Art Institute where he studied drawing with Thomas Hart Benton. Riley later earned a scholarship to attend the Art Students League and Grand Central Art School in New York, where he studied under Harvey Dunn—one of America’s most influential artists and teachers. After WWII, Riley spent the next twenty-five years making a name for himself as a much sought after illustrator for major magazines including The Saturday Evening Post, National Geographic, Reader’s Digest, McCalls, Redbook and Life Magazine, among many others. In later years Riley shifted focus and became a highly sought after western artist. Utilizing the original journals of western adventurers, artists, and others, Riley developed his narratives from actual events. Using an abstract approach and a stunning, sophisticated palette, he focused his art on the history and culture of the American west; notably the life, culture, and philosophies of the Apache, Mandan, and Plains tribes. Using rich layers of color and dramatic design, his paintings offer not only a literal story, but also an allegorical and spiritual interpretation of Native American life and culture. In 1973 Riley became a charter member of the National Academy of Western Art, and in 1982 was voted into the Cowboy Artists of America. Riley won the coveted Prix De West Award in 1995. His original works are displayed at major venues and museums across the nation including the White House, the Smithsonian Institute, The Air Force Academy, and the Little Bighorn Battlefield National Monument in Montana. The Booth Museum added a work by Kenneth Riley to their permanent collection in 2018. PROVENANCE: The Artist, by descent $25,000 – $45,000

327 ALBERT BIERSTADT (1830-1902) Source of the Snake River oil on paper mounted on canvas 14 x 19 inches signed lower right: ABierstadt Unlike so many celebrated artists, Albert Bierstadt saw great financial success and critical acclaim during his lifetime. Born in Soligen, Germany, in 1830 Bierstadt immigrated to the United States as a toddler; settling with his family in New Bedford, Massachusetts. In 1853 Bierstadt returned to Germany to pursue his formal artistic training at the Royal Academy in Dusseldorf, studying alongside Worthington Whittredge, Emmanuel Leutze, and Carl Wimar. Upon returning to the United States in 1857, Bierstadt painted the mountain ranges of the East Coast, developing his skill as a landscape painter. Renowned for his paintings of the American west, Bierstadt first traveled west in 1859 as part of Frederick Lander’s road building crew. Like John Mix Stanley had done for Isaac Stevens’ expedition, Bierstadt served to provide a visual record of the journey and to depict the grandeur of the West. Enchanted by the Rockies, Bierstadt developed a keen interest in Wyoming’s branch of them, known as the Wind River Range. Like Thomas Moran, and others before him, Bierstadt also fell under the spell of Yellowstone’s magic. A land of surreal geothermal features, towering waterfalls, and unbelievable beauty, Yellowstone is also the birth place of Western Wyoming’s largest river—the Snake. In Source of the Snake River Bierstadt clearly expresses his love and admiration of the region as well as artistic ability. The meticulously detailed foreground gives way to softly rendered mountains—the stylistic contrast effectively conveys the enormity of these peaks, creating a sense of vast space despite the scale of the piece. Snow lingers on the mountain tops, and the bright green of the wooded hillsides below speak to the natural flow of the melt, leading the eye down into the valley. Rather than showing us the immensity of the river in its fullness, Bierstadt gives the viewer only a glimmer of water, perfectly framed between the rise and fall of the hills in the foreground. Unpopulated, untouched, untainted, the wilderness at the source of the Snake is shown here in its pristine primal beauty; embodying the freedom, expansion, and American pride that marked the late nineteenth-century. Throughout his time in Wyoming and the West, Bierstadt sketched, photographed, and meticulously recorded his surroundings. Returning to the East Coast, he created numerous large scale paintings of the region.

Nor are there any representations and warranties, express or implied, as to whether the purchaser acquires any copyrights, including, but not limited to, any reproduction rights in any property. Contents of this catalogue are subject to change or supplementation before or during the sale, including the sale of any lot.

Prospective bidders should inspect the property before bidding to determine its condition, size, and whether or not it has been repaired or restored.

3.

A buyer’s premium will be added to the successful bid price and is payable by the purchaser as part of the total purchase price.

remedies available to the Jackson Hole Art Auction and its agents and consignors by law, including, without limitation, the right to hold the purchaser liable for the total purchase price, including all fees, charges, and expenses set forth herein, the Jackson Hole Art Auction, at its sole option, may (i) cancel the sale of that, or any other lot or lots sold to the defaulting purchaser, or (ii) resell the purchased property, whether at auction or by private sale, or (iii) effect any combination thereof. The purchaser will be liable for any deficiency, any and all costs, handling charges, late charges, expenses, and commissions of both sales, legal fees, and expenses, collection fees, and incidental damages. In addition, a defaulting purchaser will be deemed to have granted and assigned the property or money to the Jackson Hole Art Auction or its agents and consignors or any of their affiliated companies, and the Jackson Hole Art Auction may retain and apply such property or money as collateral security for the obligations due. The Jackson Hole Art Auction and its agents and consignors shall have all of the rights accorded to a secured party under the Wyoming Uniform Commercial Code. The purchaser of each lot agrees that each lot is unique and that the Jackson Hole Art Auction, in its sole discretion, shall not be required to sell or otherwise seek to mitigate damages should such purchaser fail to pay the total purchase price. Payment will not be deemed to have been made in full until the Jackson Hole Art Auction shall have collected good funds. The Jackson Hole Art Auction reserves the right to hold all purchases pending collection of the total purchase price. 9.

All lots are subject to a reserve, which is the confidential minimum price acceptable of the consignor. In such instances, the Jackson Hole Art Auction may implement the reserve by bidding on behalf of the consignor. In instances where the Jackson Hole Art Auction has an interest in the lot, it may bid up to the reserve to protect such interest. The Jackson Hole Art Auction, or its agents or consignors, may also bid upon other property listed in this catalogue.

10. Jackson Hole Art Auction is the owner of images of each lot offered for sale and may use such images for its own archival purposes, as well as for advertising and publicity in connection with this or future sales by the Jackson Hole Art Auction. 11. Unless exempted by law, the purchaser will be required to pay all applicable state and local sales, gross receipts, and compensation tax. Proof of exemption in the form of a current Non-Taxable Transaction Certificate must be provided at registration. It is the purchaser’s responsibility to pay any applicable compensating use tax of another state on the total purchase price. 12. These Terms and Conditions of Sale, together with the parties’ respective rights and obligations hereunder, shall be governed by and construed and enforced in accordance with the laws of the State of Wyoming, without regard to Wyoming rules concerning conflicts of law. 13. Prospective bidders and purchasers agree that, in the event of any controversy or claim arising out of or relating to a sale of property, the party asserting such controversy or claim shall provide written notice thereof to the other party, and that any such controversy or claim not settled within fourteen (14) days of delivery of notice by the other party, including any controversy or claim arising from or relating to the sale, or to these Terms and Conditions of Sale, including the terms of this paragraph, shall be resolved and settled by binding arbitration in Jackson Hole, Wyoming, or such other place upon which the parties may agree, in writing; such arbitration shall be pursuant to the commercial arbitration rules of the American Arbitration Association then in effect; the award, which shall include costs of arbitration and an award of reasonable attorneys’ fees to the prevailing party, shall be final, and the judgment on the award may be entered in any court having jurisdiction. 14.
