T. BOONE PICKENS COLLECTION

Visionary, icon, legend, maverick, magnate, tycoon—these are just some of the words that come to mind when T. Boone Pickens’ name is mentioned. One of America’s most influential entrepreneurs, Pickens left an indelible impression on every industry he touched, and there were many. Born in 1928 in Boldenville, Oklahoma, Pickens had a deep love for his birthplace, and his adult home in Texas. Pickens passed away in September of 2019. “T. Boone Pickens became a household name across the country because he was bold, imaginative, and daring,” former President George W. Bush said in a condolence statement. “He was successful – and more importantly, he generously shared his success with institutions and communities across Texas and Oklahoma. He loved the outdoors, his country, and his friends and family.” The legacy of T. Boone Pickens is lengthy and illustrious.

In addition to his prowess in business, Pickens was an avid art collector, selecting only the best western, wildlife, and sporting art. In describing his collection, Pickens said “I have collected Western art with a hope that it will help preserve these values for successful living and perpetuate them for future generations.” In the following selection of works from the T. Boone Pickens Collection, those values shine through. From the impressive scale and narrative quality of Howard Terpning’s Vanishing Pony Tracks to the impactful and innovative First Visit, Mariner 4 on its Fly-by of Mars by Wilson Hurley, each work in Pickens’ collection reflects the values of the collector. As an individual, Pickens was often described as larger than life, something that is manifested in his collection. It is an honor to offer this selection of works on behalf of the T. Boone Pickens Estate.

189 JOHN CLYMER (1907–1989) Buffalo Hunt oil on board 20 x 30 inches signed lower right: John Clymer verso: titled 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.

T. BOONE PICKENS COLLECTION

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. A skilled storyteller, Clymer was passionate about wildlife and historical western subjects. As he himself wrote, “I painted more and more history and fewer animals. Fortunately, my two favorite subjects often combine, for there is also an opportunity to include wildlife in the Indian and mountain man subjects.” In Buffalo Hunt, Clymer found just such an opportunity. In this scene, a thundering herd of bison run towards the viewer, kicking up a cloud of dust behind them. Native American hunters on horseback infiltrate the herd, striking out with spears and shooting arrows. The central figure flings a bison hide over his shoulder, an indication of how the hunters snuck up on their prey. No need for disguise now, he literally throws caution to the wind, the hunt is on. 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.

192 HOWARD TERPNING (1927– ) Vanishing Pony Tracks oil on canvas 60 x 42 inches signed lower left: © Terpning 2006 CA verso: signed Often referred to as the Storyteller of the Native American, Howard Terpning’s realistic paintings are among the most sought after and acclaimed images ever produced of Native American traditions, customs, and history. In his masterfully created historical works, we see his deep dedication to the accurate, compassionate, and insightful depiction of the Native American culture. Born in Oak Park, Illinois, he attended the Chicago Academy of Fine Art and the American Academy of Art. Terpning then worked in commercial art in Chicago before moving to New York City where he had a successful career as a commercial illustrator for magazines and movie posters.

T. BOONE PICKENS COLLECTION

In 1977, Terpning moved to Tucson, Arizona to document Native American culture and the American West. Two years later, he was elected to the National Academy of Western Art as well the Cowboy Artists of America. Over the last four decades, his remarkable career has been recognized with every top award in western art including countless Gold Medals from the Cowboy Artists of America, two Prix De West Purchase Awards from the National Cowboy and Western Heritage Museum, the Hubbard Award for Excellence and the Lifetime Achievement Award from the Autry National Center of the American West. Painted in 2006, Vanishing Pony Tracks represents a major work within Terpning’s oeuvre, both in subject and scale. “Horse stealing was a sport among the Plains Indians and an important way to gain honor and prestige among other members of the tribe. These Blackfoot warriors hope to throw off the trappers who are in pursuit to reclaim their stolen ponies. The waterfall and boulders are a grand composite brought together in this majestic scene. The Native riding toward us churns the stream and the complexity of his shadow upon the water reflects an unseen blue sky. The foreground rock in shadow is indispensable.”1 A beautiful countermeasure, narratively the waterfall serves to erase the horse thieves’ trail and compositionally it fills the vertical space, pulling the viewer into the scene.

205 WILSON HURLEY (1924–2008) First Visit, Mariner 4, Fly-by of Mars oil on masonite 72 x 45 inches signed lower right: Wilson Hurley Born in 1924 in Tulsa, Oklahoma, Wilson Hurley moved to Santa Fe, New Mexico, with his family in 1935. While still in his teens, Hurley studied with Theodore Van Soelen, Josef Bakos, and John Young-Hunter. After high school, Hurley enrolled at West Point, where he studied engineering. Following graduation, he served in the air force, before deciding to attend law school at George Washington University.

T. BOONE PICKENS COLLECTION

Truly a renaissance man, Hurley continued to pursue painting throughout his various careers. In 1952 Hurley returned to New Mexico and became an established lawyer, before turning to painting fulltime in 1965. From 1968 to 1969 Hurley took a hiatus from his artistic career to serve in the Vietnam War. Drawn to the wide open expanses of the western landscape, Hurley is most renowned for his depictions of Yellowstone, the Grand Canyon, and the New Mexico landscape. Often compared to the foundational American landscape artists like Albert Bierstadt, Frederick Church, and Thomas Moran, Hurley was influential in promoting and developing the genre of twentieth-century American landscape painting. Defying gravity, Hurley even applied his skill for landscape painting beyond this planet. In First Visit, Mariner 4, Fly-by of Mars, he takes us to space. He described this painting, saying, “As you stand twelve feet from the front of this painting you see Mars as it would appear were you 6,000 miles above it on its equator looking back toward Earth. The sun is setting on the 3,000-mile- long canyon named after the fragile Mariner 4, which is proceeding out of radio contact with Earth as we watch it on its way to oblivion. The images that Mariner sent back to Earth were the first detailed looks at the many awesome features of our neighbor planet with three-mile deep canyons and its fifteen-mile high mountains. There is a swirling dust storm coming down from the north and ice is still visible toward the South Pole. The surface appears desolate.” Few artists dare to cross this frontier, but Hurley did so with resounding success. This iconic painting greeted visitors as they alighted from the elevator in the office of T. Boone Pickens. Embodying the visionary spirit of space exploration, it is no wonder that this painting spoke to Pickens—himself an American visionary. Hurley became a member of the National Academy of Western Art in 1972, and received numerous awards and recognitions throughout his illustrious career. His work is housed in many permanent collections including the Denver Museum of Art, The National Cowboy & Western Heritage Museum, and The Eiteljorg Museum.

I had seen them many times, sometimes solitary and sometimes in a large herd. I had also wanted to paint this mountain scene for some time. Eventually, I put two and two together! During the painting design process, I experimented with other subjects, but I kept returning to this bull elk - both subject and scene just seemed right together.

217 BOB KUHN (1920–2007) Stuff of Legends, 1999 acrylic on masonite 22 x 30 inches signed lower left: kuhn 99 verso: titled, signed, dated Born in Buffalo, New York, Bob Kuhn received his artistic training at the Pratt Institute in Brooklyn, where he studied design, anatomy, and life-drawing. For the next thirty years, Kuhn made his living as one of the most popular wildlife illustrators in America, before turning to easel painting full time in 1970. Kuhn traveled around the world to obtain inspiration, with many of his wildlife expeditions lasting up to eight weeks. He made countless trips to Africa, six trips to Alaska, and numerous journeys into Canada and the American West. Originally inspired by African wildlife, Kuhn turned to the mammals of North America in later years. Kuhn worked primarily in acrylic and strove to capture the particular movements and personalities of the wild animals he painted. A member of the Society of Animal Artists in New York, Kuhn had paintings in many prestigious permanent collections including The John L. Wehle Gallery of Sporting Art at the Genesee Country Museum in Mumford, NY, The National Museum of Wildlife Art in Jackson Hole, WY, and The National Cowboy Hall of Fame in Oklahoma City, OK. In discussing his affinity for certain subjects, Kuhn described wolves as “among the most animated and interesting of the wild creatures.” Despite this clear interest in the subject, wolves are rather rare within his oeuvre. Many of Kuhn’s depictions of wolves focus on the hunt, featuring wolves in action. In Stuff of Legends Kuhn captures a unique in-between. One wolf seemingly lounges in the front, while two others stand on the ridgeline behind, all three physically at rest but clearly alert. Ears forward, they all gaze in the same direction. Has movement drawn their attention? Did a pack member sound the call? At any moment these apex predators could leap into action, but Kuhn has given the viewer a paused moment to appreciate them in charged stillness.

231 E. MARTIN HENNINGS (1886–1956) Untitled oil on canvas 30 ¼ x 30 ¼ inches signed lower right: E. Martin Hennings Born in 1886 in Pennsgrove, New Jersey, E. Martin Hennings moved to Chicago with his family a few years later. After growing up in the city, Hennings developed an interest in art and attended the Art Institute of Chicago, where he graduated with multiple awards, recognitions, and scholarships—his career off to a promising start. After a few years of working as a commercial artist, Hennings entered the Prix de Rome, coming in second place. With a renewed determination to pursue a career as a fine artist, Hennings traveled to Germany where he studied at the Royal Academy in Munich. While there, he joined the American Artists Club where he met future co-members of the Taos Society of Artists, Walter Ufer and Victor Higgins. The onset of World War I cut Hennings’ stay in Germany short, and he returned to Chicago. In 1917 prominent art collector and former Chicago mayor Carter H. Harrison took notice of Hennings’ work and offered to sponsor him on a trip to Taos, New Mexico, in exchange for a few paintings. As Hennings’ reputation grew, so did his sponsorship. Business mogul Oscar Mayer added funding, as did financier and art patron Armand Hammer. Hammer’s neighbor, Dr. Carl Davis also offered to help fund the trip. Upon Hennings’ return to Chicago, Dr. Davis had the opportunity to select a piece from the newly created works—the fruits of his sponsorship—Davis selected this striking piece, and it has remained in the family until today. New Mexico proved to be a strong muse for Hennings; the light, landscape, and Pueblo Indians all inspired him to new artistic heights. In 1921 Hennings moved permanently to Taos, where he became a member of the Taos Society of Artists in 1924. Hennings split his time between Taos, Chicago, and Houston for the remainder of his career. Speaking about his love for New Mexico, Hennings said, “I constantly grew more enthusiastic over the West for I was impressed with the possibilities for landscape and figure composition. New Mexico has almost made a landscape painter out of me, although I believe my strongest work is in figures.”1 As Hennings himself said, his strength lay in his figural works. In Untitled, Hennings presents the viewer with what could almost be the same figure from two different angles. The landscape is stripped down to the most essential elements—two thirds of the composition dedicated to clouds and sky, a monotone outline denotes the Sangre de Cristo range in the background, and tall golden grasses fill the foreground, adding texture to the scene. In many works Hennings developed complex landscapes, rolling sage brush, and layers of foothills, but in this image the focus is completely on the figures. The bold red contrasts against the cool blue of the mountains, pulling the viewer in. The blankets appear to be twins, as the men themselves could be—reversed mirror images—allowing Hennings to show us the figure completely in the round, something usually impossible in a two-dimensional work. In viewing the work today, it remains as compelling as it must have been to Dr. Davis in the early 1900s. PROVENANCE: From a Private Collection $600,000 – $900,000

237 OSCAR E. BERNINGHAUS (1874–1952) Taos Field of Workers, 1950

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.”

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 twentyfive 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

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.

246 CARL RUNGIUS (1869–1959) Above the Treeline oil on canvas 30 x 40 inches signed lower right: C. Rungius Despite being one of the most famous painters of North American wildlife, Carl Rungius was born in Rixdorf near Berlin, Germany, in 1869. Rungius developed an early interest in studying and hunting wild animals, due in large part to the influence of his father and grandfather, both amateur naturalists and taxidermists. At a young age Rungius also showed a talent for drawing and pursued his formal artistic training in Berlin at the Berlin Art School, the Academy of Fine Arts, and the School of Applied Arts. Following his education, Rungius began his career as a romantic painter in Germany. As fortune would have it, in 1894 Rungius’s uncle invited him to travel to Maine for a hunting trip. It was then that Rungius’s passion for hunting big game and painting truly came together, as he found his inspiration for both in the wildlife of North America. Enchanted, Rungius spent a summer hunting in Wyoming before moving permanently to New York in 1897. Rungius’s studio in New York allowed him easy access to the art scene of New York City as well as the wilderness of the Northeast and the Canadian Rockies. In 1904 Rungius traveled the Yukon with Charles Sheldon, and in 1910 he traveled to Banff, Alberta for the first time. In Banff, Rungius found the ideal location for painting and hunting, particularly with the prevalence of the bighorn sheep in the region. Rungius built a studio there in 1921, nicknamed ‘The Paintbox,’ and visited annually until his death in 1959. The sure-footed Rocky Mountain goat appears in many of Rungius’s paintings, and has become a recognizable icon of his work. The mountain goat typically resides above the treeline in subalpine to alpine climates, and because of this, they are a relatively rare sighting. Rungius affectionately called the species, “the strangest animal on our entire list of big game.” PROVENANCE: From a Private Collection $300,000 – $500,000

EDDIE BASHA COLLECTION

Eddie Basha Jr. was one of the most well-known business executives from Arizona: the CEO of his family-owned chain of grocery stores for over forty years. His success accorded him the opportunity to participate as a civil servant, particularly in the areas of public education and humanitarian aid, as a political candidate, philanthropist, and a major collector of Contemporary Western American and American Indian art. As a child, Eddie was often cared for by his Aunt Zelma, who would draw pictures for him as a form of entertainment. This early artful influence was a strong and lasting one, and it was her encouragement later in life that led Eddie to make his first acquisition in 1971. Collecting art nurtured two of Eddie’s passions: art and history, particularly the history of the American West, which he studied at Stanford University. Throughout his life, Eddie would collect masterworks of contemporary artists and members of the prestigious Cowboy Artists of America organization. Through his support and involvement with the organization, he developed lifelong friendships with the artists he collected, including one of his closest friends, Arizona artist and a founding member of the CAA, Joe Beeler. The friendships gave each piece a story, and further contributed to the significance of the collection. Eddie personally selected each piece he acquired, and remembering the advice his Aunt Zelma gave him to collect what he loved. The collection became one of the largest and best troves of privately-owned, Contemporary Western American and American Indian art in the world. What began briefly as a hobby evolved and became a world-class collection of oil paintings, watercolors, acrylics, pastel and charcoal drawings, pen & inks, bronze, wood and natural stone sculptures, wood-turned bowls, basketry, pottery, kachinas and jewelry. Eddie said, “There’s a true and deep passion associated with the collection of art. It’s a love.” In 1992, Eddie designated a space in the Bashas’ Corporate Office in Chandler, Arizona, for an art gallery, where over 3,000 pieces are available for public viewing.

Eddie Basha, Jr.

Named for his aunt, The Zelma Basha Salmeri Gallery houses the admired collection, which has been deemed so important that masterworks have been loaned to top museums across the country, including The Autry, The Booth Museum, The Rockwell Museum, the National Cowboy & Western Heritage Museum and many others. Basha was a man of great humor and is remembered fondly as a jokester: “I want my epitaph to say, ‘Eddie Basha, he was a good man, but a bad boy,’ and that’s how I want to be remembered.” He was also a philanthropist and proponent of human rights, in particular for the less fortunate and American Indian Communities across Arizona. He enacted programs benefitting children, and led the fight against hunger and homelessness in his beloved state.

289 RICHARD SCHMID (1934–2021) Yellow Roses, 1997 oil on canvas 20 x 30 inches signed lower right: Schmid. 1997 Richard Schmid was born in Chicago, Illinois in 1934. Schmid began drawing at an early age, and when he was twelve he enrolled in formal artistic training and began studying landscape painting. At eighteen, Schmid studied under William H. Mosby at the American Academy of Art in Chicago. Mosby redirected Schmid from his early interest in illustration and introduced him to an in-depth study of the old masters. As a result of his time with Mosby, Schmid began painting “alla prima,” in which the artist completes a painting in one session. Throughout his long artistic career, Schmid has seen representational art fall in and out of fashion, and despite changing artistic trends he has seen decades of wonderful success. While Schmid does not consider himself to be an Impressionist painter, he does use impressionism in his work frequently. Reminiscent of the Golden Age painters, Schmid applies these classic techniques to the modern era, reinventing and applying them in new and exciting ways. Known for his portraits, landscapes, and still lifes, some of Schmid’s highest grossing works at auction are his floral paintings. In reference to some of his florals, Schmid says that most flowers “beg to be painted, because they lend themselves so readily to simple, bold brushwork and palette knife application.” The perfect muse for his style, Schmid truly excels at capturing the vibrancy of flowers in his works, without overcomplicating them. Schmid’s work resides in several significant permanent collections, including The Smithsonian, and he has been honored with numerous awards like the John Singer Sargent Medal for Lifetime Achievement and the American Watercolor Gold Medal. Schmid is also a devoted educator and has published several widely distributed books.

These Terms and Conditions of Sale and all other contents of this catalog are subject to amendment during or before the sale. The property will be offered by the Jackson Hole Art Auction as agent for the consignors, unless the catalogue indicates otherwise. 1.

Jackson Hole Art Auction operates as an agent of the seller only. It is not responsible in the event any buyer or seller at the auction fails to live up to their respective agreements, including failure of the seller to deliver any property to buyers. The Jackson Hole Art Auction assumes no risk, liability, or responsibility beyond the limited warranty contained herein. a.

All property is sold “AS IS.” There are no representations or warranties that extend beyond these Terms and Conditions of Sale. All works shall be available for examination prior to the sale. The Jackson Hole Art Auction, and its agents and consignors, make no representations or warranties as to merchantability, fitness for a particular purpose, correctness of the catalogue or description, including, but not limited to, the authenticity, the physical condition, size, quality, rarity, importance, medium, provenance, dates, exhibitions, literary or historical relevance of any property, and, no statement anywhere, whether oral or written, whether made in the catalogue, an advertisement, a bill of sale, a salesroom posting or announcement, or elsewhere shall be deemed such a warranty, representation or assumption of liability. 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.

2.

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. If paying by cash or check, the purchase price will be the sum of the final bid price plus a buyer’s premium of 20% of the final bid price of each lot up to and including $1,000,000 and 12% of the excess of the final bid price above $1,000,000, plus any applicable sales tax, shipping and handling charges. The buyer’s premium is calculated separately for each lot. If paying by credit card, the purchase price will be the sum of the final bid price plus a buyer’s premium of 23% of the final bid price for each lot up to and including $1,000,000 and 15% of the excess of the final bid price above $1,000,000, plus any applicable sales tax, shipping and handling charges.

4.

The Jackson Hole Art Auction reserves the right to withdraw any property before or during the sale and shall have no liability whatsoever for such withdrawal.

5.

Except as may be announced by the auctioneer, all bids are per lot, as numbered in the catalogue.

6.

The Jackson Hole Art Auction reserves the right to reject any bid. The highest bidder acknowledged by the auctioneer will be the purchaser, subject to reserves. In the event of any dispute between bidders, or in the event of doubt as to the validity of any bid, the auctioneer will have the final discretion to determine the successful bidder, cancel the sale, or to reoffer and resell the article in dispute. If any dispute arises after the sale, the Jackson Hole Art Auction’s sale record shall be final and conclusive. The Jackson Hole Art Auction, in its discretion, may execute orders or absentee bids as a convenience to clients who are not present at the auction; however, the Jackson Hole Art Auction is not responsible for any errors or omissions in connection therewith.

7.

If the auctioneer, in his or her discretion, determines that any bid is below the reserve of the article offered, he or she may reject the same and withdraw the article from sale, and, if having acknowledged an opening or other bid, the auctioneer decides that any advance thereafter is insufficient, he or she may reject the advance.

8.

On the fall of the auctioneer’s gavel, the highest bidder acknowledged by the auctioneer assumes full risk and responsibility for the offered lot, subject to all of the terms and conditions set forth herein, and is immediately obligated to pay the full purchase price or such parts thereof as the Jackson Hole Art Auction may then require. All sales are final, and there shall be no exchanges or returns. Payment shall be made by cash, check, wire transfer, Visa, MasterCard, or American Express. (See, paragraph 3 above: “If paying by credit card . . .”) In addition to other remedies available to us by law, the Jackson Hole Art Auction reserves the right to impose, from the date of sale, a late charge of 1.5% per month (18% per annum) of the total purchase price, if payment is not made in accordance with the conditions set forth herein.

9.

a.

All property must be removed by the purchaser at his or her expense not later than (10) business days following the sale, and if it is not so removed, (i) a handling charge of 1% of the total purchase price per month from the tenth day after the sale (until its removal) will be payable to us by the purchaser, with a minimum of 5% of the total purchase price due for any property not so removed within 60 days after the sale, and (ii) we may send the purchased property to a public warehouse for the account, at the risk and expense of the purchaser.

b.

If any applicable conditions herein are not complied with by the purchaser, the purchaser will be in default, and in addition to any and all other 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.

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. — 187 —

Proof of exemption in the form of a current Non-Taxable Transaction Certificate must be provided at registration.

S A LE S TA X A recent Supreme Court ruling has led to changes nationwide regarding sales tax laws. In 2018 the Supreme Court of the United States ruled against Wayfair in favor of the state of South Dakota regarding the state’s right to collect sales tax on online purchases from a business without a physical presence in that state. This decision changed the existing status quo and has created a precedent for other states to collect sales tax from businesses without a physical presence in their state. The new laws vary from state to state and require all businesses (not just auction houses) to collect sales tax if they meet a given state’s threshold for an economic nexus. An economic nexus is used in place of a physical presence in the state and can be met by either a total sales amount limit into that state or a total number of individual transactions into that state. Currently the Jackson Hole Art Auction has met the threshold for an economic nexus in the following states: Arizona, Colorado, New Mexico, Oklahoma, Texas, Utah, Wisconsin, and Wyoming. If the purchaser is shipping to any of these states, the Jackson Hole Art Auction is required by law to add the appropriate state and local sales tax to the purchaser’s invoice. The following states do not currently have sales tax and/or applicable economic nexus laws, and as a result the Jackson Hole Art Auction is not required to collect sales tax from Alaska, Delaware, Montana, New Hampshire, or Oregon. Due to the variable nature of auction sales, and the small window in which they occur, the Jackson Hole Art Auction does not yet know if the states not listed above will require sales tax collection, as that will be determined by the total dollar amount sold into each state—which cannot be predicted. The Jackson Hole Art Auction will be tracking these totals live during the sale using tax software, and will strive to inform the purchaser at the time of invoicing if sales tax collection is required; however, it may be necessary to bill for sales tax post-sale if the threshold for an economic nexus in the purchaser’s state is met after the purchaser has paid. Even if the Jackson Hole Art Auction is not required to collect sales tax from the purchaser’s state, unless exempted by law, the purchaser will be required to pay all applicable state and local sales, gross receipts, and compensation tax per the terms and conditions. If the purchaser has a valid resale certificate, the purchaser will not be required to pay sales tax. Please provide a copy of this certificate at the time of registration for tax compliance.
