DR. ROBERT R. WHITE (1942 – 2014)

Born and raised in Houston, Robert’s attention often focused on a painting hanging on his grandmother’s wall—E. Martin Hennings’ In the Foothills—that depicted two Indians on horseback riding through sage-brush under a brilliant northern New Mexico sky. It was only when he visited the Land of Enchantment years later that Robert determined that New Mexico skies truly were that bright. Ever curious, he inquired about Hennings while travelling in Santa Fe in 1973, and was directed to Hennings’ widow in Taos. Robert’s interviews with her resulted in his first article, “Taos Founder, E. Martin Hennings” in Southwest Art the next year. After permanently moving to New Mexico in 1974, he gradually abandoned his career as a hydrologist and soon found a way to become an independent scholar, merging his interests in nineteenth and early twentieth century southwestern art and history. Robert authored or co-authored over fifty books, articles, chapters, and essays in history and the arts. These works included The Taos Society of Artists in 1983 (updated in 1998), his University of New Mexico doctoral dissertation “Artists of Territorial New Mexico, 1846-1912” in 1993, and his co-authored Bert Geer Phillips and the Taos Art Colony in 1994. He participated in numerous cultural organizations, including the Southwest Art History Council and the Historical Society of New Mexico, the latter of which he served as President from 1991 to 1993. He spoke at art history conferences across the nation, and his expertise was pursued by other researchers, museum curators, and gallery owners—Robert provided essays for two catalogues produced by the Gerald Peters Gallery, E. Martin Hennings: Paintings and Works on Paper from Europe and Taos in 1991, and The New Mexico Painters in 1999. He also extensively collected New Mexican art, prints, and etchings.

30 Ernest Martin Hennings (1886-1956) Winter in Taos, ca. 1920 oil on board 10 x 10 inches signed lower left: E. M. Hennings Ernest Martin Hennings was born in 1886, the son of German immigrant parents. He studied at the Art Institute of Chicago, and initially pursued a career as a commercial artist. Having grown weary of the commercial art world, however, Hennings resumed his fine art studies at the Royal Academy in Munich in 1912, where, he met Walter Ufer and Victor Higgins, who would also become prominent Taos society artists. The avant-garde modernists working at the Academy at the time influenced Hennings’s style; and, while he never abandoned realism, he began to paint with a more modernist approach. Forced to leave Germany at the outbreak of World War I, Hennings returned to Chicago, where he formed relationships with two major patrons: Cart Harrison, the former Mayor of Chicago, and Oscar Mayer of the famous meat-packing company. With their financial support, Hennings traveled to Taos in 1917, where his friends from the Academy, Higgins and Ufer were working. 1 Inspired by the majestic New Mexican landscape, Hennings’ paintings took on a lighter, more whimsical quality. Accepted into the Taos Artist Society in 1924, he became one of the group’s most prominent and respected artists. Provenance: Estate of Dr. Robert White $15,000 - $25,000

84 Ernest L. Blumenschein (1874-1960) Portrait of Sheldon Parsons oil on canvas 20 x 16 inches signed and inscribed lower left: Sheldon Parsons / by / EL Blumenschein Ernest Blumenschein arrived in Taos under un-planned, and somewhat inconvenient circumstances in 1898. He and his companion, the painter Bert Greer Phillips, had been traveling on a journey from Colorado to Mexico when the wheel on their wagon broke 20 miles north of Taos. Blumenschein then carried the broken wheel on horseback to Taos to have it repaired. Despite the difficult journey, he became immediately enamored of the landscape, and he and Phillips resolved to remain in Taos rather than continuing on to Mexico as planned. 1 Of his first impressions of the New Mexico landscape during his horseback ride to Taos, Blumenschein wrote: Never shall I forget the first powerful impressions; my own impressions direct from a new land through my own eyes. Not another man’s picture this, not another’s adventure. The great naked anatomy of a majestic landscape once tortured now calm; the fitness of adobe houses to their tawny surroundings; the vastness and overwhelming beauty of the skies; terrible drama of storms; peace of night – all in beauty of color, vigorous form, everchanging [sic] light. 2 The two artists remained in Taos, painting for three months. While Phillips enjoyed some relative financial stability that allowed him to stay in Taos permanently, Blumenschein felt anxious to get back to New York and secure some illustration commissions, which would not only provide valuable income, but also help to further develop his career and standing as a commercial artist. He was also eager to return to the Académie Julien in Paris, where he had trained for two years prior to his arrival in Taos, to complete his education. Blumenschein returned to France in 1899, and in 1905 married Mary Shepherd Greene, a classmate at the Académie and accomplished painter herself. 3 The Blumenscheins returned to New York in 1906, where they both worked as illustrators and teachers. Although Blumenschein enjoyed a fair amount of success as an illustrator, working with prominent writers of the day such as Jack London and Willa Cather, he continued to think about Taos, and hoped to one day return and work there as a fine artist, free from the constraints of the commercial world. By 1910, he was splitting his time between Taos and New York, spending the summer months in Taos, and, in 1919, he moved to Taos permanently. 4 During his time away from Taos, Blumenschein had also encouraged fellow painters to visit: E.I. Couse, Joseph Henry Sharp (who had visited Taos once in 1893 and again in 1897), who had been classmates at the Academie and Herbert “Buck” Dunton who had been a student of Blumenschein at the Art Students League, all made trips to Taos between 1899 and 1910. These artists, like Blumenschein and Phillips were so taken with the beauty of the landscape, as well as the opportunity to be near American Indians and their culture, that they also quickly became residents of the pueblo. With Sharp, Couse, Dunton, and Oscar Berninghaus, whom Phillips had met in Taos in 1899, Phillips and Blumenschein founded the Taos Society of Artists in 1915, 5 appointing Eanger Irving Couse the first President of the group. Blumenschein now had the freedom to paint what he liked, and took full advantage, using his eye for design and color to create paintings that exuded the majesty of the New Mexican vistas, and his admiration for the pueblo people and their culture. As a teacher, he had always encouraged his students to be sure that they were giving their paintings “something that is your own.” 6 In Taos, and surrounded by the Taoseños, he became even more convinced of the value of authenticity and of creating art that not only depicts nature, but also conveys personal expression. He observed of the pueblo Indians’ art: The Art of the Indian is not only beautiful, but it is unique. Originality is the priceless donation of all human endeavor and the aboriginal American has actually contributed more to the arts than two-hundred years of ‘civilized’ occupation of North America has produced. 7 Accordingly, he infused his own Taos paintings with his exuberance for the Northern New Mexican landscape, using a more vibrant palette than he had in the past and creating rhythmic compositions of land, trees and sky, as in his work, Juniper and Cottonwood (Lot 82). Likewise, Blumenschein’s paintings of Eagle Nest Lake, such as the present work (Lot 83), employ a stylized, linear composition, reflecting his interest in modernist painting and ability to manipulate the natural contours of the landscape to create an engaging, unique scene. Even his portrait of fellow artist Sheldon Parsons, though adhering to academic principles of proportion, employs a light palette, and shows the other man in a somewhat more relaxed manner, with a few hairs askew on his forehead, even as he looks seriously toward the viewer. Thus, even as Blumenschein proved an excellent academic draftsman and commercial illustrator, it was ultimately his years spent in Taos that provided the freedom and inspiration to develop his true artistic identity, and best works.

Mexico in / The Spring of 1954 According to Paul Horgan, Peter Hurd’s life-long friend who chronicled Hurd’s artistic career in Peter Hurd: A Portrait Sketch from Life, Hurd first began to experiment with tempera on gesso in 1929. He was intrigued by the luminous qualities the technique created, and studied Renaissance texts to understand how to mix minerals with egg yolks to make vivid tempera pigments. 1 In the mid-1930s, Hurd and his wife Henriette (who had been Henriette Wyeth, before her marriage and was the daughter of N.C. Wyeth), moved to San Patricio, near Roswell, New Mexico, where Hurd had spent his childhood. There, Hurd delighted in riding his horse over his land, and painting sweeping scenes of the landscape and aspects of ranch life, often in tempera on gesso, which became one of his preferred mediums. 2 The Fence Builders, demonstrates the full maturation of his artistic style, and mastery of the tempera and gesso medium.

93 Wood Woolsey (1899-1970) Three Men oil on canvas 36 x 30 inches signed lower right: Wood Woolsey Wood Woolsey was born in Danville, Illinois in 1899. He and his brothers, Carl and Jean were all artistically inclined, though Wood was the only one of the three who underwent any formal artistic instruction, studying for a short time at the John Herron Institute in Indiana. He then worked briefly as a commercial artist. In 1928, he joined his brothers in Taos. There, Wood and his brother Carl painted and showed their works at the Hoosier Salon and at the National Academy in New York and enjoyed some commercial success, as their father managed their career. Whereas Carl painted primarily landscape pictures, Wood was much more interested in figure painting. Although he had only drawn from a live model in a limited capacity during his time at the Herron School, he nevertheless proved a good draftsman. Wood developed a distinct painting style in Taos; often employing a strong juxtaposition of elements in his works to convey polarities inherent to the human experience. 1 The present work displays one such juxtaposition, with the figure in the foreground shown in with open eyes and a illuminated face, while the two figures in the background stand in the shadows. It is works like these that display Wood Woolsey’s talent as an accomplished painter and thought-provoking artist.

Inspired by his experience there, the Indians and the beauty of Northern New Mexico, Sharp spoke of Taos to his classmates at the Académie Julien: E.I. Couse, Ernest Blumenschein and Bert Greer Phillips, who would all eventually become founders of the Taos Society of Artists. 1 After his return from the Académie to the United States, Sharp spent several years painting and teaching in Cincinnati; and made journeys to Montana, where he painted Plains Indians and views of the mountain landscape. During this time, Sharp attracted some important patrons, including President Theodore Roosevelt and Phoebe Apperson Hearst, the mother of William Randolph Hearst. 2 These patrons’ support allowed Sharp to take up residence and begin painting in Taos permanently in 1912. In Taos, Sharp developed deep, intimate relationships with the Taoseños and native people, and they allowed him a view of their customs and culture that they did not afford many out-siders. Sharp was, in turn, very concerned with depicting these people faithfully and accurately. As a result, Sharp’s works have often been referenced as anthropological sources.

BERNINGHAUS Of the six founding members of the Taos Society of Artist, or the “Taos six,” Oscar Berninghaus was the only one who did not undergo formal artistic training in New York or Europe. Born in St. Louis in 1874, and the son of a lithograph salesman, Berninghaus admired the lithographs his father sold and tried his hand at sketching, drawing and painting, later attending a few night school art classes. In 1899 he visited Taos for the first time and met Bert Greer Phillips. Taos and the Northern New Mexican landscape turned out to be exactly what the painter needed to develop the full depth of his artistic abilities. 1 Berninghaus was enchanted with the New Mexican scenery and its people and painted sweeping scenes of land, sky and clouds. Unlike some of his contemporaries, he was not interested in painting pictures that depicted only the authentically New Mexican or “Old West” concept, often painting tourists with backpacks into the edge of his scenes, exactly how they appeared. 2 Berninghaus began to split his time between St. Louis and New Mexico, shortly after his first visit, and became a founding member of the Taos Art Society. He was also an advocate for the idea of creating a uniquely American painting style, and felt proud that Taos Colony was leading the movement. 3 Provenance: Private Collection, New Mexico $80,000 - $100,000

Irving Couse NA C. 1932 for Amer. Litho Calendar Eanger Irving Couse first encountered American Indians as a child in Saginaw, Michigan, where he became fascinated with the Chippewa tribe. He drew and painted the Chippewa at every opportunity, and while he later trained at the Art Institute of Chicago, the National Academy of Design in New York, and, in 1886, the venerable Académie Julien in Paris, he never lost this interest in American Indian culture. Indeed, Couse’s mentor at the Académie, the painter William Adolphe Bouguereau, encouraged a strict adherence to classical painting, based upon Renaissance techniques and Christian subject matter. Though Couse never entirely abandoned the technical, academic approach to painting that he learned from Bouguereau, he often thought about the American West throughout his studies in France. In 1891, Couse and his wife, Virginia, traveled to the Pacific Northwest so that he could paint American Indians. He then submitted a painting of indians, The Captive to the 1892 Paris salon, which garnered admiration. At the suggestion of Joseph Henry Sharp,1 whom he had known at the Académie, Couse visited Taos for the first time in 1902. Couse was immediately impressed with the dramatic beauty of the New Mexico landscape, and, perhaps most important, he found that the pueblo Indians in Taos were often pleased to model for his paintings; whereas the Indians he had encountered along the Northwest coast had not been as willing. Couse had become convinced, moreover, that painting American Indians was essential to establish a national aesthetic identity and idiom for American Figure painters, and determined to be a leader in this endeavor. In 1903, Couse and his wife spent the summer in Taos, and would return increasingly often over the subsequent summers, spending their winters in New York. 2 During his early years in Taos, Couse began to integrate photography into his painting process, creating photo studies in the field for scenes he would later create in his studio. He then referenced these photographs in his studio, often simultaneously employing a model to help him compose his works. Between 1902 and 1929, Couse amassed an enormous collection of these photographs, which he referenced throughout the rest of his life. 3 It is likely that the present work, Spearing the Fish, is inspired by one such photo study. While these photographs provided a valuable reference for Couse, however, it is important to note that he used them more as springboards for his works, and less as one might use a preliminary oil field sketch. 4 The photographs helped Couse to see how his figure would naturally pose in a given scene, but he would then infuse his paintings with a personal, somewhat romanticized view. Couse then painted his concept of the landscape and surroundings and his perception of the Indian. Couse paintings are not, therefore, ethnographic representations of his Indian subjects, as some of his contemporary audience may have assumed. 5 Rather, they are modernist representations of how Couse interpreted the American West and its people; and communicate a certain mystique about the West that resonates even today.

121 Carl Rungius (1869-1959) Pack Horses on a Trail, ca. 1920 oil on canvas 30 x 40 inches signed lower right: C. Rungius Carl Rungius was born in Berlin in 1869, and from a very early age, he showed a precocious interest in the two passions that would characterize his life and career: hunting and painting animals. As the son of a pastor, he was expected to become a member of the clergy, which did not at all suit the young man. He managed to convince his father to let him instead pursue art, and enrolled in the Berlin Art Academy in 1888. Like many of his classmates, he often visited the zoo to sketch animals. However, he found the zoo animals somewhat unsatisfactory models, as he could not often closely study their muscular and skeletal structure. In search of another way to study animal anatomy, he began to work in glue factories, sketching from cadavers, a clear indication of his desire to fully understand the animals he wanted to paint. 1 Rungius first travelled to the American West in 1894, arriving in Cora, Wyoming and was immediately enchanted by breadth of the plains and the height of the mountains. The landscape was unlike anything he had experienced in Germany, and he felt both challenged and exhilarated by its vast expanses. In Wyoming, he hunted elk, antelope, and grizzly bears, and painted them during the winter, in New York where he eventually established a studio. 2 In 1910, Rungius made his first trip to Banf, Alberta at the invitation of an English-born trail guide named Justin James McCartney ( Jimmy) Simpson. Simpson and Rungius embarked upon long, difficult climbs in the Canadian Rockies to get above the treeline, so that Rungius could paint and hunt Rocky mountain goats and Bighorn sheep. As a result, it was here that Rungius first began to paint above the treeline, and took a broader interest in the landscape surrounding his animal subjects. 3 Before the outbreak of the First World War, Rungius and his wife, Louise, had made regular trips to Germany. Departing Germany during the summer of 1914, the two then spent the war years in Wyoming and Banff, with winters in New York. It was during this time that Rungius began to take an interest in painting scenes of life on the range, depicting cowboys, horses and packhorses. Having become a member of the National Academy of Design in 1913, Rungius began to submit these paintings for exhibition at the Academy in 1917. In 1919 he showed a painting of packhorses in the Canadian Rockies at the Fort Worth Art Association, and submitted several more paintings of similar subject matter to the National Academy during the next two years. 4 The present work was therefore probably painted around this time, during one of Rungius’ and Jimmy Simpson’s treks through the Canadian Rockies. While Rungius had enjoyed some loyal patronage in the past, these paintings of range life and “the trail,” earned him important critical recognition and acceptance into the fine art establishment. Unlike some of his contemporary artists’ romanticized visions of the West, which at the time were viewed as somewhat passé, these works were more frank representations of range life, and the awesome majesty of the mountains where Rungius loved to hunt and work. Moreover, the artist had developed such a deft ability to paint horses and saddles by this time, that, while he employed a somewhat loose handling of the brush, his packhorses seem to move gracefully though the mountain terrain of his high tundra works. 5 The works of this period thus demonstrate the full maturation of his artistic abilities.

127 Frederic Remington (1861-1909) Untitled (St. Lawrence River), ca. 1908 oil on board 9 1/4 x 12 1/4 inches signed lower left: To John Amory / from Frederic Remington Comparative Literature: Peter Hassrick and Melissa Webster, Frederic Remington: A Catalogue Raisonné of Paintings, Watercolors and Drawings, Cody, WY: Buffalo Bill Historical Center, 1996, Vol. II, no. 2848 and no. 3013, p. 820 According to Peter Hassrick, the present oil would most likely have been painted in 1908 when the artist and his wife Eva spent the summer on his Chippewa Bay island, Ingleneuk, in the St. Lawrence River. In describing Chippewa Bay – another larger oil of 1908- Hassrick writes, “Increasingly interested in painting small landscapes, Remington recorded in his diary the process of making this painting: July 14: “I explored Chippewa Bay- Oak Island & Grenidian for a subject sketch of Chippewa Bay- picked Forester’s place” July 16: “Went over to Forrester’s with Peter and sketched Chippewa Bay- which was very blue with the wind turning the water up to the clear sky. The wind nearly blew Pete and I away. It was more like a Greco Roman combat than summer sketching.” The 1908 Knoedler exhibition was Remington’s first time to exhibit some of the small landscapes in that he had been working on. One reviewer wrote, “A number of the pictures in the present collection are Eastern scenes, wood interiors and views of river and bay that are rendered with a frankness and simplicity in striking contrast with the note of strangeness in the pictures of the West” ( New York Times ( December 2, 1908). “ 1 John Amory, to whom this work is inscribed, was an acquaintance of Remington’s. Both men had attended Yale, lived in Westchester, NY and were associated with the same New York clubs and organizations. The Remington Art Memorial owns a sketchbook by the artist which includes a cartoon sketch of JM Armory from September 1899- which was then inscribed and dated by JM Amory: ”The artist has done the best he could with the subject. You can’t make a silk purse out of a sow’s ear.” Provenance: Private Collection, New Mexico $80,000 - $100,000

Indian grasps spear in left hand and has war shield hung on his back.’ . . . Remington’s desire to capture the essence of the nineteenth-century frontier is reflected in the attention to historically authentic detailing. Among the early castings, the buffalo robe on which he deftly balanced horse and rider was correct in size and appearance. The horse’s rear fetlocks depict anatomically correct bends.” (Greenbaum, p. 89) In 1908- for cast 21- Remington re-worked the model and straightened both of the horse’s rear fetlocks, having earlier made the base simpler and the shield lower on the rider’s back.

137 William Robinson Leigh (1866-1955) Three Riders Resting, 1949 oil on canvas 12 3/4 x 18 5/8 inches signed and dated lower left: © / W.R. LEIGH. 1949 William Robinson Leigh was born in 1866 in Virginia, into a somewhat aristocratic southern family. His childhood in Virginia was not easy, his father was extraordinarily hard on the young man, often losing his temper and administering harsh punishments. Further, the Leighs had fallen on hard economic times which not only worsened steadily during Leigh’s childhood, but also intensified family tensions. Nevertheless, Leigh loved to draw and sketch during his spare time and his mother, recognizing his talent, managed to secure him a position at the Maryland Academy of Art. Leigh then left America for Germany in 1883, and trained at the Royal Academy in Munich, the most well respected and established art school at the time. 1 As a child, Leigh had loved to play Cowboys and Indians with his siblings, and this fascination with the West endured throughout his life. 2 While working in Munich at age 26, his teacher discovered him painting a Western scene, a depiction of a bar brawl in a Western-looking saloon. His teacher declared that if the West and America were where his passions truly lay, Leigh should return to America and paint the West. 3 Leigh left Germany in 1896, and settled in New York where he worked as an illustrator. He also attempted, during this time, to find a wealthy patron in New York, who would provide funds for him to travel to the West and paint, but was unsuccessful. By 1906, Leigh had grown worried that if he did not get to the West soon, he would never get there. He managed to secure a commission with the Santa Fe Railway to paint the Laguna and Zuni Pueblos, and thus set out for New Mexico. 4 While the Indians were initially quite hesitant to let Leigh paint them, they eventually became comfortable with Leigh, and allowed him to observe and paint every detail of their lives, as in the work Cooking Pu-Vu-Lu (Lot 81), in which a Hopi woman sits near a cooking fire, stirring. Leigh had a great empathy and respect for the Indians, and their trust was therefore very important to him. Though Leigh struggled with poverty until he found dealer representation in New York during the 1910s, he got enough commissions from the Santa Fe Rail way to enable him to continue painting and traveling in the West. In 1910, he began what became a life-long friendship with the taxidermist and artist Will Richard 5, and the two travelled through Wyoming. Here, Leigh painted his first scenes of big-game hunting. He was transfixed with the Wyoming mountains and with the lives of cowboys living on the range. Leigh became known for his great ability to paint scenes that conveyed “the moment of utmost intensity,” 6 depicting horses at a full run, their riders straining to look behind at a pursuer, pistols drawn. However, he also became respected for his ability to paint scenes of utter calm and almost romantic, poetic beauty. Three Riders Resting is one such scene. Here, three horses stand calmly in the shade, while their riders luxuriate in in the sun on the nearby hillside. The land is bathed in a golden light that communicates the peacefulness of an afternoon nap after a long ride. After Leigh’s passing, in 1955, Grand Central Galleries, which had become Leigh’s dealer in New York, wrote that: “Probably no other artist has painted the Old West more faithfully and magnificently than William R. Leigh… He not only lived among Cowboys and Indians but did a great deal of research on their equipment and their methods of fighting and hunting. There was a romatic grandeur to all his paintings. When looking at a fine marine painting by Frederick Waugh, he said ‘It will be a thousand years before we have another Waugh.’ And I say, it will a thousand years before we have another Leigh.” 7 Though Leigh struggled early in life for artistic recognition, he was ultimately recognized not only as a truly original painter of the American West, but as a truly original painter in the history of American art.

TERMS & CONDITIONS OF SALE   The following Terms and Conditions of Sale are the Santa Fe Art Auction Limited Co.’s (“Santa Fe Art Auction”) and its agents’ and consignors’ entire agreement with the prospective bidders, bidders and buyers relative to the lots listed in this catalog. The lots will be offered by the Santa Fe Art Auction as agent for the consignors, unless the catalog indicates otherwise.    1. The Santa Fe 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 Santa Fe Art Auction assumes no risk, liability, or responsibility beyond the limited warranty contained herein.     (a) Except as set forth in paragraph 1(b) below, all lots are sold “AS IS.” There are no representations or warranties that extend beyond these Terms and Conditions of Sale. All lots shall be available for examination prior to the sale. The Santa Fe Art Auction and its agents and consignors make no representations or warranties as to merchantability, fitness for a particular purpose, correctness of the catalog or descriptions of lots, including, but not limited to, the physical condition, size, quality, rarity, importance, medium, provenance, dates, exhibitions, literary or historical relevance of any lot and no statement anywhere, whether oral or written, whether made in the catalog, an advertisement, a bill of sale, a salesroom posting or announcement, or elsewhere, shall be deemed such a warranty, representation or assumption of liability. There are no representations and warranties, express or implied, as to whether the Buyer acquires any copyrights, including, but not limited to, any reproduction rights in any lot. Contents of this catalog are subject to change or supplementation before or during the sale, including the sale of any lot.    (b) The authenticity of the authorship attributed to the lots as described in this catalog is guaranteed only to the limited extent as stated in this paragraph 1(b).    (i) The authorship attributed to a lot includes name of the artist and any reservations therewith stated, as, for example, “attributed to,” “in the school of ” or “appears to have been signed by.” The Santa Fe Art Auction makes no warranties whatsoever, express or implied, with respect to any material in the catalog other than the authorship attributed to the lots.    (ii) This guarantee is further limited as follows: The benefits of this guarantee are not assignable and shall be available only to the Buyer of record; this guarantee shall remain in force and be effective only if notice of rescission is given to the Santa Fe Art Auction within three (3) years following the date of sale, provided the lot is tendered to the Santa Fe Art Auction in Santa Fe, New Mexico, in the same condition as the lot was found at the time of sale; and that the rescission of a sale and the refund of the total purchase price paid (i.e., the successful bid price, plus the buyer’s premium and applicable tax) is exclusive and in lieu of any other remedy which might otherwise be available, and that the Santa Fe Art Auction and its consignors shall not be liable to the Buyer for any incidental, consequential, special, compensatory or punitive damages.    (iii) In remitting payment hereunder, Buyer agrees and acknowledges that the absolute limit of Santa Fe Art Auction’s, its agents’ or consignors’ liability and responsibility shall not exceed the total purchase price.    2. Prospective bidders should inspect the lots before bidding to determine condition, size and whether or not the lot has been repaired or restored and to investigate all other matters relating to the lot that is of material importance to the prospective bidder.    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 17% of the final bid price of each lot up to and including $500,000, 15% of the excess of the final bid price above $500,000, 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 20% of the final bid price for each lot up to and including $500,000, 18% of the excess of the final bid price above $500,000, and 15% of the excess of the final bid price above $1,000,000, plus any applicable sales tax, shipping and handling charges.   4. Unless exempted by law, the Buyer 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. In the event of deliveries outside the state, it is the Purchaser’s responsibility to pay any applicable compensating use tax of another state on the total purchase price. If a buyer requests that artwork be shipped to an address in New York State, we must collect New York sales tax due to an affiliated business located in New York City under recent legislation (Part P-1 of Chapter 57 of the Laws of 2009).   • Why Santa Fe Art Auction Collects Sales Tax: New Mexico requires a seller of goods to register with the New Mexico Department of Taxation and Revenue and collect and remit sales tax if the seller maintains a presence within the state. More specifically, tax laws require an auction house, like Santa Fe Art Auction, with a presence in New Mexico, to register as a sales tax collector, and remit sales tax collected to the state. Unless exempted, New Mexico sales tax is charged on the hammer price, buyer’s premium and any other applicable charges on any property picked up or delivered in New Mexico, regardless of the state or country in which the purchaser resides or does business.    • Certain Exemptions: New Mexico allows for specified exemptions to its sales tax. For example, a registered re-seller such as a registered art dealer may purchase without incurring a tax liability, and Santa Fe Art Auction is not required to collect sales tax from such re-seller.  As sales tax laws vary from state to state, Santa Fe Art Auction recommends that clients with questions regarding the application of sales or use taxes to property purchased at auction seek tax advice from their local tax advisors.    5. The Santa Fe Art Auction reserves the right to withdraw any lot before or during the sale and shall have no liability whatsoever for such withdrawal.    6. Except as may be announced by the auctioneer, all bids are per lot, as numbered in the catalog.    7. The Santa Fe Art Auction reserves the right to reject any bid. The highest bidder acknowledged by the auctioneer will be the Buyer, 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 S A N TA F E A R T A U C T I O N

bidder, cancel the sale, or reoffer and resell the lot in dispute. If any dispute arises after the sale, the Santa Fe Art Auction’s sale record shall be final and conclusive. The Santa Fe 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 Santa Fe Art Auction is not responsible for any errors or omissions in connection therewith.   8. If the auctioneer, in his or her discretion, determines that any bid is below the reserve of the lot, he or she may reject the same and withdraw the lot 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.   9. 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 of Sale set forth herein, and is immediately obligated to pay the full purchase price. All sales are final and there shall be no exchanges or returns. Payment shall be made by cash, check or wire transfer. As set forth in paragraph 3, above, for an additional percentage Santa Fe Art Auction will also accept credit cards as a form of payment. (Visa and MasterCard only).    In addition to other remedies available to Santa Fe Art Auction by law, we reserve 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.    (a) All lots must be removed by the Buyer at his or her expense not later than ten (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, or a portion thereof from the tenth day after the sale (until its removal) will be payable to us by the Buyer, with a minimum of 5% of the total purchase price due for any lot not so removed within 60 days after the sale, and (ii) Santa Fe Art Auction may send the purchased lot to a public warehouse for the account of and at the risk and expense of the Buyer.    (b) If any applicable conditions herein are not complied with by the Buyer, the Buyer will be in default, and in addition to any and all other remedies available to the Santa Fe Art Auction and its agents and consignors by law, including, without limitation, the right to hold the Buyer liable for the total purchase price, together with all fees, charges and expenses set forth in these Terms and Conditions of Sale, the Santa Fe Art Auction, at its sole option, may (i) cancel the sale of that, or any other lot or lots sold to the defaulting Buyer, or (ii) resell the purchased lot or lots, whether at auction or by private sale, or (iii) effect any combination thereof. The Buyer 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. The Santa Fe Art Auction and its agents and consignors shall have all of the rights accorded to a secured party under the New Mexico Uniform Commercial Code. The Buyer of each lot agrees that each lot is unique and that Santa Fe Art Auction, in its sole discretion, shall not be required to sell or otherwise seek to mitigate damages should such Buyer fail to pay the total purchase price. Payment will not be deemed to have been made in full until the Santa Fe Art Auction shall have collected good funds. The Santa Fe Art Auction reserves the right to hold all purchases pending collection of the total purchase price, together with all additional fees, charges and expenses incurred pursuant to these Terms and Conditions of Sale.    10. All lots (unless otherwise indicated by the letters “nr”) are subject to a reserve, which is the confidential minimum price acceptable to the consignor. The Santa Fe Art Auction, or its agents or consignors, may implement such reserve by opening the bidding or they or either of them may bid up to the amount of the reserve by placing successive or consecutive bids for a lot or may bid in response to other bidders. In instances where the Santa Fe Art Auction has an interest in the lot, it may bid up to the reserve to protect such interest. The Santa Fe Art Auction, or its agents or consignors, may also bid upon other lots listed in this catalog.    11. Santa Fe 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 Santa Fe Art Auction.   12. These Terms and Conditions of Sale, together with the parties’ respective rights and obligations hereunder, shall be governed and construed and enforced in accordance with the laws of the State of New Mexico, without regard to New Mexico’s rules concerning conflicts of laws.   13. Prospective bidders, bidders and Buyers agree that, in the event of any controversy or claim arising out of or relating to a sale of any lot, the party asserting such controversy or claim shall provide written notice thereof to the other party; that any such controversy or claim not settled within fourteen (14) days of delivery of notice by the other party, including, without limitation, any controversy or claim arising from, or relating to, the sale of any lot or any of these Terms and Conditions of Sale, including the terms of this paragraph, the sole and exclusive means for resolving the dispute shall be by binding arbitration in Santa Fe, New Mexico. Said arbitration shall be confidential and shall be pursuant to the New Mexico Uniform Arbitration Act, shall be conducted before a single arbitrator, and shall otherwise be guided by the then extant New Mexico Rules of Arbitration. This Agreement is deemed made in Santa Fe, New Mexico, and is subject to the internal substantive law of the State of New Mexico without regard to conflicts of laws. The award of the arbitrator shall be final, and may be entered into any court having jurisdiction thereof. Each party shall bear that party’s own costs of arbitration and attorney’s fees. 14. The Santa Fe Art Auction may, in its discretion and at a Buyer’s request, pack and ship items as directed by the Buyer. In such event, Buyer agrees to the following conditions:    (a) All such packing, handling and shipping is at the sole risk of the Buyer and the Santa Fe Art Auction shall have no liability for any loss or damage to such items, and  (b) Buyer shall pay all related expenses in advance. Buyer should allow four to six weeks for shipping from the date of the auction.    15. Results are posted on the Santa Fe Art Auction web site and, upon request, may be sent to Buyers, catalog subscribers, absentee and phone bidders, and other registered bidders.    16.  If any part of these Terms and Conditions is held invalid or unenforceable for any reason, the remaining provisions shall continue to be valid and enforceable to the fullest extent permitted by law.   17.  These Terms and Conditions are not assignable by any buyer without the prior written consent of the Santa Fe Art Auction. However, these Terms and Conditions are binding on the buyer’s successors, assigns and representatives.   18.  No act, omission or delay by the Santa Fe Art Auction shall be deemed a waiver of its rights and remedies under these Terms and Conditions. 12 6

19. The Santa Fe Art Auction shall use reasonable efforts to contact prospective buyers who have made prior arrangements to place telephone bids in order for these buyers to participate in the auction. The Santa Fe Art Auction shall not be liable for its failure to contact said bidders or for any errors or omissions made in connection with telephone bids since telephone bids are offered as a free service that is undertaken subject to the other commitments of Santa Fe Art Auction during the sale.    20. Santa Fe Art Auction shall use reasonable efforts to execute online bids in order for online buyers to participate in the auction. Online bidding is provided as an alternative bidding service and should not be considered a replacement for bidding in the room. Santa Fe Art Auction encourages its buyers to weigh the advantages and limitations of live online bidding when deciding whether to bid in the room or online. Santa Fe Art Auction shall not be liable for any errors or omissions made in connection with online bids or the online bidding process. Although Santa Fe Art Auction will do everything in its power to assure all online bids are recognized, Santa Fe Art Auction has no way of guaranteeing that the internet and the online bidding process will be free from technical malfunctions. In the event of a tie between an online bid and a “room” bid, the “room” bid generally will take precedence. “Room” bids include those bids taken from the live auction room(s), telephones, absentee bidders, or bids made by the auctioneer to protect the reserve. Santa Fe Art Auction will not be responsible for errors or failures to execute bids placed on the internet, including, without limitation, errors or failures caused by (i) a loss of connection on Santa Fe Art Auction’s or on the Buyer’s end, (ii) a breakdown or problems with the online bidding software, and/or (iii) a breakdown or problems with a Buyer’s internet connection, computer or system. Santa Fe Art Auction does not accept liability for failing to execute an online internet bid or for errors or omissions in connection with this activity.

GUIDE FOR BIDDING ABSENTEE BIDS If you are unable to attend the auction in person, and wish to place bids, you may give the Santa Fe Art Auction Bid Department instructions to bid on your behalf. Our representatives will then try to purchase the lot or lots of your choice for the lowest price possible, and never for more than the top amount you indicate. The Santa Fe Art Auction offers this service as a convenience to clients who are unable to attend the auction. However, the Santa Fe Art Auction will not be responsible for failure to execute bids, or any errors in executing bids. PLACING ABSENTEE BIDS Absentee bids are accepted only if you have returned a signed Absentee Bid Form by mail or fax which authorizes the Santa Fe Art Auction to place bids on your behalf. The Absentee Bid Form appears in the back of this catalog. Please complete and return to the Santa Fe Art Auction by December 5, 2014. To place bids, please use the absentee bid form provided in the back of this catalog. Be sure the lot number and the descriptions are accurate and note the top price you are willing to pay for each lot. No bid will be placed unless you indicate a Top Limit (i.e., the amount that you would bid if you were attending the auction yourself ). Any alternative bids should be indicated by using the word “OR” between lot numbers. Then if your bid on an early lot is successful, we will not continue to bid on other lots for you. Or, if your early bids are unsuccessful, we will continue to execute bids for alternative lots until a bid is successful. Bids must be placed in the same order as the lot numbers appear in this catalog. Please place your bids as early as possible. In the event of identical bids, the earliest bid received will take precedence. TELEPHONE BIDS Telephone bids are accepted only if you have returned a signed Absentee Bid Form by mail or fax which authorizes the Santa Fe Art Auction to place bids on your behalf. The Absentee Bid Form appears in the back of this catalog. Please check the telephone bid box on the form, complete, and return to the Santa Fe Art Auction by December 5, 2014. Telephone bidders are encouraged to leave back up bids in case of techincal failure. BUYER’S PREMIUM The Top Limit you indicate on your bid form is the gavel price exclusively. Please keep in mind that a buyer’s premium, as stated in paragraph 3 of the Terms and Conditions of Sale, will be added to the successful bid price of each lot you buy and is payable by you together with the applicable sales tax which is applied to the total cost of the purchase. SUCCESSFUL BIDS Successful absentee bidders will be notified and invoiced within a few days of the sale. Successful absentee bidders shall arrange to make payment via cash, check, credit card or wire transfer upon receipt of notification of purchase. TO FAX A COMPLETED BID FORM, DIAL (505) 954-5785.
