Estate of Francois Bucher lots 1–87 Francois Bucher Born 1927, Lausanne, Switzerland, died 1999, Lloyd, Florida A Florida obituary described Bucher as, "an exotic combination of a classically trained Old World intellectual and a lifelong Bohemian." He was a brilliant medievalist and 20th century scholar, writer, teacher, art and architecture historian, whose passions encompassed traditional and offbeat European, American, and ethnographic art, artifacts, literature, modern painting, good food and wine, cigarettes and more, as well as the art history students who were influenced by his astounding intellect. After his graduate studies in Zurich and Rome, he taught at numerous universities, including Bern, (Switzerland), Minnesota, Yale, Brown, Princeton, SUNY Binghamton, and at the last academic stage of his life, at Florida State University, in Tallahasee.

He met Josef Albers when they were both at Yale University, and wrote a definitive book, Josef Albers: Despite Straight Lines, (1961, revised in 1977). His PhD dissertation was revised and published as Notre Dame de Bonmont and the Earliest Cistercian Monasteries of Switzerland; he also edited the art journal, Gesta, a publication of the International Center for Medieval Art, a facsimile edition of the Pamplona Bibles (1971), and a facsimile of architectural pattern and sketchbooks of the middle ages, published as Architector. He directed the Society of Architectural Historians. An apocalyptic novel, originally written in English, was published in German as, Ein strahlendes Ende in 1984.  In the 1980s, in the tiny town of Lloyd, 20 miles from Tallahassee, he bought a 400-acre tract of land, and began constructing the unusual elongated cinder block building his Nautilaus Think Tank, modeled on the ideas of R. Buckminster Fuller, and contained living quarters, a lecture hall, library and art gallery. 

After his death, Nautilus was bequeathed to the Collins Center for Public Policy and became the Collins Nautilus Institute for Advanced Study. The interior of Bucher’s house embodied the richness and cultural diversity of a classic, highly intellectual Europeanturned-American man of arts, letters and ideas. This eclectic collection includes fine and decorative art, furniture and books of many periods and styles, made in America, Europe, Asia, Africa, and the South Pacific. Among his favorite things were the Egyptian wood and bronze Ibis [lot 1], hand-woven Caucasian carpets [lots 45, 55], American Federal sofas [lot 49], African ceremonial wood masks [lot 6], Benin bronze heads [lot 5], and a group of carved wood angels and saints from European churches, and a Swiss long horn. All these diverse artifacts from many cultures and periods co-existed comfortably into the setting, acquired by a man with a giant intellect who made connections to all of them.

A former art history graduate student who took his Gothic Art and Architecture class at Florida State University recalls: “Francois Bucher insisted that we make the 40-mile round trip to his Nautilus Foundation for our weekly seminars. The reason he offered was that his library was far superior to FSU’s, which in some ways it was. We joked that it was because he wasn’t allowed to smoke in the classrooms. The first time I arrived at the Nautilus complex it took a while to find him. We encountered extraordinary but incomplete buildings whose slightly weird geometry invoked the progeny of Cycladic villages and Southwestern adobe, doors ajar. There were cats everywhere. And crumpled packs of cigarettes. And half-full bottles of wine. And coffee cups. And the most untidy and most impressive private library I had ever seen.  Francois was unstintingly generous with us—whatever he had, he shared. He’d offer us cups of coffee, a plate of pasta, a glass of wine, a cigarette, a kitten… He dazzled and mortified us by addressing us as if we were his intellectual peers, and had his breadth of experience and education, which of course we didn't.  He wanted to talk about what he wanted to talk about (which was fine, it was his seminar and he was the teacher), but sometimes he forgot we had no context for his chosen subject. One afternoon he tried to convince us that one of us should write a doctoral dissertation on the geometrical treatises of 16th-century Spanish architect Juan

de Herrera, brandishing a very dusty copy of the book. As students, we were disconcerted at meeting someone who refused to acknowledge so many conventional boundaries. The distinctions between work and play, art and science, medieval and modern, student and teacher, art and tool were not important to him. The seminars were unforgettable, though not necessarily because of the subject matter. In the years since his death, I have heard people say that Francois envisioned the Nautilus as a Florida version of the Institute for Advanced Study at Princeton. He never mentioned Princeton to us; he did speak, often and with reverence, about Arcosanti and Paolo Soleri. I think he envisioned Nautilus—with its buildings named after the liberal arts—as a bookish Arcosanti. Not a think tank, but a utopian community.  Despite his bohemian rejection of established academic protocols, I think he was a deeply moral man. Given his likely disappointment at the level of discourse our scraggly student band provided, I was always puzzled at Francois’s reluctance to see us go back to Tallahassee. In hindsight, I see our presence helped him imagine the fulfillment of his vision for Nautilus—we were understudies for the spirited and intellectual interlocutors he dreamed would inhabit it one day.”

Therefore, all property is sold “AS-IS”. Freeman’s is acting solely as an auction broker, and unless otherwise stated, does not own the Property offered for sale and has made no independent investigation of the Property. Freeman’s makes no warranty of title, merchantability or fitness for a particular purpose, or any other warranty or representation regarding the description, genuineness, attribution, provenance or condition to the Property of any kind or nature with respect to the Property. 4 Freeman’s in its sole and exclusive discretion, reserves the right to withdraw any property, at any time, before the fall of the hammer. 5 Unless otherwise announced by the auctioneer at the time of sale, all bids are per lot as numbered in the printed catalogue. Freeman’s reserves the right to determine any and all matters regarding the order, precedence or appropriate increment of bids or the constitution of lots. 6 The highest bidder acknowledged by the auctioneer shall be the buyer. The auctioneer has the right to reject any bid, to advance the bidding at his absolute discretion and in the event of any dispute between bidders, the auctioneer shall have the sole and final discretion either to determine the successful bidder or to re- offer and resell the article in dispute. If any dispute arises after sale, the Freeman’s sale record shall be conclusive in all respects. 7 If the auctioneer determines that any opening or later bid or any advance bid is not commensurate with the value of the Property offered, he may reject the same and withdraw the Property from sale. 8 Upon the fall of the hammer, title to any offered lot or article will immediately pass to the highest bidder as determined in the exclusive discretion of the auctioneer, subject to compliance by the buyer with these Conditions of Sale. Buyer thereupon assumes full risk and responsibility of the property sold, agrees to sign any requested confirmation of purchase, and agrees to pay the full price, plus Buyer’s Premium, therefore or such part, upon such terms as Freeman’s may require. 9 No lot may be removed from Freeman’s premises until the buyer has paid in full the purchase price therefor including Buyer’s Premium or has satisfied such terms that Freeman’s, in its sole discretion, shall require.

Subject to the foregoing, all Property shall be paid for and removed by the buyer at his/her expense within ten (10) days of sale and, if not so removed, may be sold by Freeman’s, or sent by Freeman’s to a public warehouse, at the sole risk and charge of the buyer(s), and Freeman’s may prohibit the buyer from participating, directly or indirectly, as a bidder or buyer in any future sale or sales. In addition to other remedies available to Freeman’s by law, Freeman’s reserves the right to impose a late charge of 1.5% per month of the total purchase price on any balance remaining ten (10) days after the day of sale.

If the foregoing conditions or any applicable provisions of law are not complied with, in addition to other remedies available to Freeman’s and the Consignor (including without limitation the right to hold the buyer(s) liable for the bid price) Freeman’s, at its option, may either cancel the sale, retaining as liquidated damages all payments made by the buyer(s), or resell the property. In such event, the buyer(s) shall remain liable for any deficiency in the original purchase price and will also be responsible for all costs, including warehousing, the expense of the ultimate sale, and Freeman’s commission at its regular rates together with all related and incidental charges, including legal fees. Payment is a precondition to removal. Payment shall be by cash, certified check or similar bank draft, or any other method approved by Freeman’s. Checks will not be deemed to constitute payment until cleared. Any exceptions must be made upon Freeman’s written approval of credit prior to sale. In addition, a defaulting buyer will be deemed to have granted and assigned to Freeman’s, a continuing security interest of first priority in any property or money of, or owing to such buyer in Freeman’s possession, and Freeman’s may retain and apply such property or money as collateral security for the obligations due to due to Freeman’s. Freeman’s shall have all of the rights accorded a secured party under the Pennsylvania Uniform Commercial Code. 10 Unless the sale is advertised and announced as “without reserve”, each lot is offered subject to a reserve and Freeman’s may implement such reserves by bidding through its representatives on behalf of the Consignors. In certain instances, the Consignor may pay less than the standard commission rate where Freeman’s or its representative is a successful bidder on behalf of the Consignor. Where the Consignor is indebted to Freeman’s, Freeman’s may have an interest in the offered lots and the proceeds therefrom, other than the broker’s Commissions, and all sales are subject to any such interest.

11 No “buy” bids shall be accepted at any time for any purpose. 12 Any pre-sale bids must be submitted in writing to Freeman’s prior to commencement of the offer of the first lot of any sale. Freeman’s copy of any such bid shall conclusively be deemed to be the sole evidence of same, and while Freeman’s accepts these bids for the convenience of bidders not present at the auction, Freeman’s shall not be responsible for the failure to execute, or, to execute properly, any pre-sale bid. 13 A Buyer’s Premium will be added to the successful bid price and is payable by the buyer as part of the total purchase price. The Buyer’s Premium shall be: 25% on the first $50,000 of the hammer price of each lot, 20% on the portion from $50,001 through $1,000,000, and 12% thereafter. 14 Unless exempted by law from the payment thereof, the buyer will be required to pay any and all federal excise tax and any state and/or local sales taxes, including where deliveries are to be made outside the state where a sale is conducted, which may be subject to a corresponding or compensating tax in another state. 15 Freeman’s may, as a service to buyer arrange to have purchased property posted and shipped at the buyer’s expense.
