XUE SONG 1965Experiences are often the source of artistic creation. When Xue Song’s studio burned to the ground, the accident inspired him to use ash and soot as a symbol of rebirth in his art. Xue uses charred and burned fragments of his previous works, newspapers and books to create collages of iconic politicians, calligraphy, Western art icons and pieces inspired by classical Chinese watercolour paintings. In Monument on Grey Background (lot 24), Xue draws from one of Xu Beihong’s famous horse paintings, reconstructing its iconic imagery using hundreds of prints of historically and politically famous figures, whilst prints of early Chinese stone rubbings are used for the background. In doing so, Xue attempts to generate a conversation with the old masters, creating a discourse between the old and the new, and building bridges between the East and the West.

金釋

The iconography depicted presents the historical Buddha in the earth-witness gesture. This refers to when Shakyamuni triumphed over the demon Mara, who was attempting to divert him from his objective of becoming enlightened through meditation. When Mara challenged Shakyamuni’s right to enlightenment, Shakyamuni moved his hand from his lap to touch the ground with his middle finger calling the earth to witness his entitlement to spiritual enlightenment. Shakyamuni’s unshakable resol e forced ara and his army of demons to ee moments later, Shakyamuni attained enlightenment.

69 λ TWO RARE CHINESE NODDING HEAD FIGURES OF MANCHU OFFICIALS 18TH/EARLY 19TH CENTURY Their heads and hands carved in ivory, their robes and hats of woven silk, one with a rank badge enclosing a golden pheasant for a second rank civil official, each stands with his hands held slightly before him, their eyes, mouths, moustaches and beards detailed in black, each with his long hair in a plaited queue, the figures stand on later gilt and black lacquer rectangular plinths, 58cm. (2)

£7,000-9,000 Cf. W R Sargent, The Copeland Collection: Chinese and Japanese Ceramic Figures, pp.192-195, no.93 for a similar pair of seated Manchu nobles with ivory heads and hands in The Peabody Essex Museum of Salem, Massachusetts; see also Christie’s London, 23rd November 2006, lot 94 for a related plaster nodding head figure of a lady wearing embroidered silk robes. Such figures may have developed from the tradition of three-dimensional ancestral figures which originated in Hunan and Fujian, probably as an extension of ancestor paintings. Ancestral figures were first produced before the 1st century AD, and the tradition continued in Fujian into the Qing dynasty. However, as with the pair in The Peabody Essex Museum, the stylisation of these figures suggests that they are more likely to have been created for the export market rather than as functional ancestral images, and so they are probably more related to the many unfired clay nodding head figures exported to the West in the 18th and 19th centuries.

123 A MASSIVE CHINESE BLACK AND CELADON JADE ‘YINGXIONG’ GROUP QING DYNASTY The stone skilfully worked with a single-horned mythical beast carved from the black section of the stone whilst an eagle is predominantly picked out in celadon, both creatures stand side by side gazing backwards with well-defined bulging eyes, the eagle with its left leg raised and talons tightly clasped, with an old paper label to the shoulder of the lion-like beast, all raised on a rocky platform, the black and celadon areas of the stone both with white and russet markings, 34cm, 10kg.

£8,000-12,000 Provenance: from the collection of Reverend Victor Farmer (1898-1977) and thence by descent. Whilst Farmer sold several Chinese ceramics at Sotheby’s in 1961, he was primarily a collector of Chinese hardstones and other works of art. Much of his collection was also sold at Phillips on 15th February 1978. The imagery depicted is an interpretation of the motif of an eagle, ying, and a bear, xiong, which together form the word yingxiong, a homophone for ‘hero’. The theme of an eagle and bear first appeared on Western Han dynasty bronze ‘champion’ vases. This developed throughout later periods into more stylised representations where the bear is often rendered as a mythical beast resembling a lion and the eagle is sometimes portrayed as a phoenix. Cf. A Forsyth and B McElney, Jades from China, p.292, no.292 for a Ming dynasty jade carving of an eagle perched on a lion-like mythical animal in the collection of The Museum of East Asian Art, Bath; see also Sotheby’s Hong Kong, 1st December 2016, lot 172 for another Ming piece with a comparable subject matter and lot 203 for a related small 17th/18th century yellow jade ‘yingxiong’ carving depicting a bird of prey with a similarly rendered mythical beast.

THE REVEREND VICTOR FARMER (1898-1977) The Farmer Collection was begun in the late 19th century by William Farmer, who moved to Hong Kong and became manager of the Peak Hotel in 1888 and later built and managed the Victoria Hotel. His son, Victor Farmer, served in the First World War as a subaltern in the Suffolk Regiment. Victor then joined Brunner Mondlate ICI in 1921 and married in 1925. The newly wed couple moved to Canton and subsequently to Harbin, eventually settling in Tianjin where they stayed several years, with Victor adding to the family’s Chinese art collection. He then became the chairman of Brunner Mondlate ICI and they moved to Shanghai.

After the formation of the People’s Republic of China, the Farmers were granted an exit visa in 1953, but sadly Mrs. Farmer died that year. Unusually Mr. Farmer was granted permission to take his entire collection with him on his departure from China. On leaving China, he first stopped briefly in Hong Kong, before returning to England in 1954, where he took Holy Orders in 1965. During this period he joined the Oriental Ceramic Society and lent many of the pieces from his collection to the Society for inclusion in its exhibitions. The Reverend Farmer eventually retired in 1975, dying two years later.

£50,000-70,000 Provenance: from an important Asian collection. The colour of this glaze is also known as ‘sacrificial red’. According to legend, the Xuande Emperor (r.1426-35) wanted to use a set of bright red ceramics to make offerings to the Sun, and so he instructed the workers at the Jingdezhen kilns accordingly. Despite numerous attempts, they were unable to create the red the Emperor desired, and so, unsatisfied by their work, he threatened to execute the workers. Upon hearing this news, one of the potter’s daughters went to the kilns, only to find that her father had been imprisoned for failing to produce the correct colour. In protest, she sacrificed herself by throwing her body into the blazing kiln. When the kiln was opened, the workers were astonished to find that all the ceramics inside were now red, supposedly having been stained by the girl’s blood. This is one explanation for the origin of the term ‘sacrificial red’.

2.

仲介:作為拍賣行,本公司通常以代理買方的 身份簽署合同。爲了保護客戶隱私權,本公司 不會公開競買人的資訊。

3.

估價:估價是爲了提供競買人一個大概的價格 浮動範圍。所有提供的拍賣品均設有賣家所定 的保密的最低價,拍品不會以低於此價出售。 圖錄上較低的估價價格即可能是該拍賣品的底 價。估價不包括競買人支付的傭金和VAT增值 稅。估價會在拍賣之前提供給競買人。

SOCIETY OF FINE ART AUCTIONEERS AND VALUERS and the ROYAL INSTITUTION OF CHARTERED SURVEYORS CONDITIONS OF BUSINESS INFORMATION FOR BUYERS 1.

Introduction. The following informative notes are intended to assist Buyers, particularly those inexperienced or new to our salerooms. All sales are conducted on our printed Conditions of Sale which are readily available for inspection and normally accompany catalogues. Our staff will be happy to help you if there is anything you do not fully understand.

2.

Agency. As auctioneers we usually contract as agents for the seller whose identity, for reasons of confidentiality, is not normally disclosed. Accordingly if you buy your primary contract is with the seller.

3.

Estimates. Estimates are designed to help buyers gauge what sort of sum might be involved for the purchase of a particular lot. The lower estimate may represent the reserve price and certainly will not be below it. Estimates do not include the Buyer’s Premium or VAT (where chargeable). Estimates are prepared some time before the sale and may be altered by announcement before the sale. They are in no sense definitive.

4.

The purchase price. The Buyer shall pay the hammer price together with a premium thereon of 25% plus VAT @20% (totalling 30% inclusive) on the first £500,000 and 12% plus VAT @20% (14.4%) inclusive thereafter.

5.

VAT. (†) indicates that VAT at the current standard rate is payable by the purchaser on the hammer price as well as being an element in the buyer’s premium. This imposition of VAT is likely to be because the seller is registered for VAT within the European Union and is not operating the Dealers Margin Scheme or because VAT is due at 20% on importation into the UK. The symbol (Ω) indicates that the lot has been imported from outside the European Union and the present position is that these lots are liable to a reduced rate of VAT (5%) on the gross lot price (i.e. both the hammer price and the buyer’s premium). Lots which appear without either of the above symbols indicate that no VAT is payable on the hammer price. This is because such lots are sold using the Auctioneers’ Margin Scheme and it should be noted that the VAT included within the Premium is not recoverable as input tax.

6.

We are, primarily, agents for the seller. We are dependent on information provided by the seller and whilst we may inspect lots and act reasonably in taking a general view about them we are normally unable to carry out a detailed or any examination of lots in order to ascertain their condition in the way in which it would be wise for a buyer to do. Intending buyers have ample opportunity for inspection of goods and, therefore, accept responsibility for inspecting and investigating lots in which they may be interested. Please note carefully the exclusion of liability for the condition of lots contained in the Conditions of Sale. Neither the seller nor we, as the auctioneers, accept any responsibility for their condition. In particular, mechanical objects of any age are not guaranteed to be in working order. However, in so far as we have examined the goods and make a representation about their condition, we shall be liable for any defect which that examination ought to have revealed to the auctioneer but which would not have been revealed to the buyer had the buyer examined the goods. Additionally, in specified circumstances lots misdescribed because they are ‘deliberate forgeries’ may be returned and repayment made. There is a 3 week time limit. (The expression ‘deliberate forgery’ is defined in our Conditions of Sale).

7.

Electrical goods. These are sold as ‘antiques’ only and if bought for use must be checked over for compliance with safety regulations by a qualified electrician first.

8.

Export of goods. Buyers intending to export goods should ascertain (a) whether an export licence is required for the goods to leave the U.K. and (b) whether there is any specific prohibition on importing the goods in question into the destination country because, e.g. they may contain prohibited materials such as ivory. Charges may be applicable for export licences. Ask us if you need help. The denial of any permit or licence shall not justify cancellation or rescission of the sale contract or any delay in payment.

9.

Bidding. Bidders will be required to register before the sale commences and lots will be invoiced to the name and address on the registration form. Some form of identification will be required if you are unknown to us. Please enquire in advance about our arrangements for telephone bidding.

10. Commission bidding. Commission bids may be left with the auctioneers indicating the maximum amount to be bid excluding buyers’ premium. They will be executed as cheaply as possible having regard to the reserve (if any) and competing bids. If two buyers submit identical commission bids the auctioneers may prefer the first bid received. Please enquire in advance about our arrangements for the leaving of commission bids by telephone or fax. 11. Methods of Payment. As a general rule any cheques tendered will need to be cleared before removal of the goods is permitted. Please discuss with our Office in advance of the sale if other methods of payment are envisaged (except cash). 12. Collection and storage. Please note what the Conditions of Sale state about collection and storage. It is important that goods are paid for and collected promptly. Any delay may involve the buyer in paying storage charges. TERMS OF CONSIGNMENT FOR SELLERS 1.

Interpretation. In these Terms the words ‘you’, ‘yours’, etc. refer to the Seller and if the consignment of goods to us is made by an agent we assume that the Seller has authorised the consignment and that the consignor has the Seller’s authority to contract. Similarly the words ‘we’, ‘us’, etc. refer to the Auctioneers.

2.

Commission is charged to sellers at the following rates: 15% + VAT on each lot sold for up to £999, 10% + VAT on each lot realising £1,000 and above.

3.

Removal costs. Items for sale must be consigned to the sale room by any stated deadline and at your expense. We may be able to assist you with this process but any liability incurred to a carrier for haulage charges is solely your responsibility.

4.

Loss and damage waiver. We are not regulated by the FSA for the provision of insurance to clients. However, we for our own protection assume liability for property consigned to us at lower pre-sale estimate. To justify accepting liability, we make a charge of 1.5% of the hammer price plus VAT or, if unsold, our mid estimate of the hammer price. If the owner of goods consigned instructs us in writing not to take such action, they then remain at owner’s risk unless and until the property in them passes to the Buyer or they are collected by or on behalf of the owner, and clause 4 is inapplicable.

5.

Illustrations. The cost of any illustrations is borne by you. If we consider that the lot should be illustrated your permission will usually be asked first. The copyright in respect of such illustrations shall be the property of us, the auctioneers, as is the text of the catalogue.

6.

Minimum bids and our discretion. Goods may be offered subject to a reserve agreed between us before the sale in accordance with clause 7.

7.

We may sell lots below the reserve provided we account to you for the same sale proceeds as you would have received had the reserve been the hammer price. If you specifically give us ‘discretion’ we may accept a bid of up to 10% below the formal reserve.

Reserves. (a) You are entitled to place prior to the auction a reserve on any lot consigned, being the minimum hammer price at which that lot may be sold. Reserves must be reasonable and we may decline to offer goods which in our opinion would be subject to an unreasonably high reserve (in which case goods carry the storage and insurance charges stipulated in these Terms of Consignment). (b) A reserve once set cannot be changed except with our consent. (c) Where a reserve has been placed only we may bid on your behalf and only up to the reserve (if any) and you may in no circumstances bid personally. 8.

Electrical items. These are subject to detailed statutory safety controls. Where such items are accepted for sale you accept responsibility for the cost of testing by external contractors. Goods not certified as safe by an electrician (unless antiques) will not be accepted for sale. They must be removed at your expense on your being notified. We reserve the right to dispose of unsafe goods as refuse, at your expense.

9.

Soft furnishings. The sale of soft furnishings is strictly regulated by statute law in the interests of fire safety. Goods found to infringe safety regulations will not be offered and must be removed at your expense. We reserve the right to dispose of unsafe goods as refuse, at your expense. The rights of disposal referred to in clause 8 and 9 are subject to the provisions of The Torts (Interference with Goods) Act 1977, Schedule 1, a copy of which is available for inspection on request.


10. Descriptions. Please assist us with accurate information as to the provenance etc. of goods where this is relevant. There is strict liability for the accuracy of descriptions under modern consumer legislation and in some circumstances responsibility lies with sellers if inaccuracies occur. We will assume that you have approved the catalogue description of your lots unless informed to the contrary. Where we are obliged to return the price to the buyer when the lot is a deliberate forgery under Condition 15 of the Conditions of Sale and we have accounted to you for the proceeds of sale you agree to reimburse us the sale proceeds. The liability to reimburse the sale proceeds shall not arise where you are acting reasonably and honestly and are unaware of the forgery but we are or ought to have been aware of it. 11. Unsold and withdrawn items. If an item is unsold it may with your consent be re-offered at a future sale. Where in our opinion an item is unsaleable you must collect such items from the saleroom promptly on being so informed. Otherwise, storage charges may be incurred. We reserve the right to charge for storage in these circumstances at a reasonable daily rate. 12. Withdrawn and bought in items. These are liable to incur a charge of up to 10% plus VAT of the reserve or low estimate on being bought in or withdrawn after being catalogued. 13. Conditions of Sale. You agree that all goods will be sold on our Conditions of Sale. In particular you undertake that you have the right to sell the goods either as owner or agent for the owner. You undertake to compensate us and any buyer or third party for all losses liabilities and expenses incurred in respect of and as a result of any breach of this undertaking.

sold together with any premium, Value Added Tax chargeable and any additional charges payable by a defaulting buyer under these Conditions; (f) ‘sale proceeds’ means the net amount due to the seller, being the hammer price of the lot sold less commission at the stated rate, Value Added Tax chargeable and any other amounts due to us by the seller in whatever capacity and however arising.

(b) You authorise us in our discretion to negotiate a sale by private treaty not later than the close of business on the day of the sale in the case of lots unsold at auction, in which case the same charges will be payable as if such lots had been sold at auction and so far as appropriate these terms apply. 15. Warehousing. We disclaim all liability for goods delivered to our saleroom without sufficient sale instructions and reserve the right to make minimum warehousing charge of £2 per lot per day. Unsold lots are subject to the same charges if you do not remove them within a reasonable time of notification.

You authorise any sums owed by you to us on other transactions to be deducted from the sale proceeds. You must note the liability to reimburse the proceeds of sale to us as under the circumstances provided for in Condition 10 above.

DESCRIPTIONS AND CONDITION

(a)

(b)

Any statement as to authorship, attribution, origin, date, age, provenance and condition is a statement of opinion and is not to be taken as a statement of fact. The Company reserves the right, in forming their opinion, to consult and rely upon any expert or authority considered by them to be reliable. Edward Lear: In our opinion a work by the artist. (When the artist’s forename(s) is not known, a series of asterisks, followed by the surname of the artist, whether preceded by an initial or not, indicates that in our opinion the work is by the artist named. Attributed to Edward Lear: In our opinion probably a work by the artist but less certainty as to authorship is expressed than in the preceding category. Studio of Edward Lear: In our opinion a work by an unknown hand in the studio of the artist which may be or may not have been executed under the artist’s direction. Circle of Edward Lear: In our opinion a work by an as yet unidentified but distinct hand, closely associated with the named artist but not necessarily his pupil. Style of ...; Follower of Edward Lear: In our opinion a work by a painter working in the artist’s style, contemporary or nearly contemporary, but not necessarily his pupil. Manner of Edward Lear: In our opinion a work in the style of the artist and of a later date. After Edward Lear: In our opinion a copy of a known work of the artist. The term signed and/or dated and/or inscribed means that in our opinion the signature and/or date and/or inscription are from the hand of the artist. The term bears a signature and/or date and/or inscription means that in our opinion the signature and/or date and/or inscription have been added by another hand. Dimensions are given height before width. Pictures are framed unless otherwise stated.

(a) Whilst we seek to describe lots accurately, it may be impractical for us to carry out exhaustive due diligence on each lot. Prospective buyers are given ample opportunities to view and inspect before any sale and they (and any independent experts on their behalf) must satisfy themselves as to the accuracy of any description applied to a lot. Prospective buyers also bid on the understanding that, inevitably, representations or statements by us as to authorship, genuineness, origin, date, age, provenance, condition or estimated selling price involve matters of opinion. We undertake that any such opinion shall be honestly and reasonably held and accept liability for opinions given negligently or fraudulently. Subject to the foregoing neither we the auctioneer nor our employees or agents nor the seller accept liability for the correctness of such opinions and all conditions and warranties, whether relating to description, condition or quality of lots, express, implied or statutory, are hereby excluded. This Condition is subject to the next following Condition concerning deliberate forgeries and applies save as provided for in paragraph 6 ‘information to buyers’.

(c)

(b) Private treaty sales made under these Conditions are deemed to be sales by auction for purposes of consumer legislation.

(j) (k)

15. FORGERIES

ARTIST’S RESALE RIGHT / DROIT DE SUITE

Notwithstanding the preceding Condition, any lot which proves to be a deliberate forgery (as defined) may be returned to us by you within 21 days of the auction provided it is in the same condition as when bought, and is accompanied by particulars identifying it from the relevant catalogue description and a written statement of defects. If we are satisfied from the evidence presented that the lot is a deliberate forgery we shall refund the money paid by you for the lot including any buyer’s premium provided that (1) if the catalogue description reflected the accepted view of scholars and experts as at the date of sale or (2) you personally are not able to transfer a good and marketable title to us, you shall have no rights under this condition. The right of return provided by this Condition is additional to any right or remedy provided by law or by these Conditions of Sale. GENERAL 16. We shall have the right at our discretion, to refuse admission to our premises or attendance at our auctions by any person. 17. (a) Any right to compensation for losses liabilities and expenses incurred in respect of and as a result of any breach of these Conditions and any exclusions provided by them shall be available to the seller and/or the auctioneer as appropriate. (b) Such rights and exclusions shall extend to and be deemed to be for the

Droit de Suite is a royalty payable to a qualifying artist or the artist’s heirs each time a work is resold during the artist’s lifetime and up to a period of 70 years after the artist’s death. Royalties are calculated on a sliding percentage scale based on the hammer price excluding the buyer’s premium. The royalty does not apply to lots selling below the sterling equivalent of €1,000 and the maximum royalty payable on any single lot is the sterling equivalent of €10,000. Droit de Suite, which is not subject to VAT, will be added to the buyer’s purchase price and then passed on to the relevant collecting agency by the auctioneer. Please enquire for the accepted exchange rate on the day of the sale. Royalties for Droit de Suite are as follows: 4% Up to €50,000 3% €50,000.01 - 200,000 1% €200,000.01 - 350,000 0.5% €350,000.01 - 500,000 0.25% In excess of €500,000 Up to a maximum levy of €10,000
