maria-mela muter (french/polish, 1876-1967) Maria-Mela Muter is considered one of the first Polish women to successfully achieve an internationally recognized career in painting. Born in Warsaw in 1876, she married in 1899 and moved with her family to Paris in 1900. Although she briefly attended various art schools in Paris, she left before completing her studies. In later years, she would say that she was influenced by fellow École de Paris artists and was largely self-taught. Her early technique, marked by her careful use of color and short, energetic brushtrokes, reflects her own distinctive style and reveals the influence of the post-impressionist and fauvist painters to whom she would surely have been exposed during this time. In spite of her relocation to Paris, Muter remained intimately connected to her Polish roots as she worked intensively on her career.  Her first individual exhibition took place in Warsaw in 1902 at the Society for the Promotion of Fine Arts. This was only the second presentation by a woman artist in the history of the institution. She also participated in exhibitions at the Society for the Friends of Fine Arts in Krakow and Lvov. In Paris she showed her work in exhibitions organized by Societé Nationale des Beaux Arts, Salon des Indépendents, Salon d’Automne and Salon des Tuileries. The present work, Waldspaziergang (A Walk In The Woods) was executed in the early 1920’s, during what was a turbulent time both for the artist personally and for Europe as a whole, given the upheaval caused by World War I. A few years prior she had met an intellectual and socialist activist, Raymond Lefebvre, with whom she formed a relationship that would precipitate the demise of her marriage in 1919. Along with Lefebvre, Muter surrounded herself with other left-wing French intellects like Romain Rolland, Anatole France and Henri Barbusse, and began publishing pacifist drawings for the magazine, “Clarté.”  The present work, a serene depiction of two figures traveling a meandering path through colorful woods dappled with sunlight, belies the dark, political backdrop of the post-war era.

15 PABLO PICASSO (spanish, 1881-1973) “PORTRAIT DE JACQUELINE AU CHAPEAU DE PAILLE” (TÊTE DE FEMME) 1962-63, pencil signed and numbered 8/50, with wide margins, Galerie Louise Leiris, Paris, publisher.

Captivated by her large almond-shaped eyes, classical profile and long elegant neck, Picasso created more works of art based on Jacqueline than any of his other lovers. Indeed, she was his principal subject during the last two decades of his life, a period that has since been referred to as ‘L’Epoque Jacqueline’. The 72 year old artist first encountered the 27 year old salesgirl while she was working at the Madoura pottery studio in the South of France, where he made his ceramics. At the time, he was living with Francoise Gilot and their two children, but he and Jacqueline kindled a romantic relationship that would endure until the artist’s death in 1973. $50,000-80,000

emil nolde (german, 1867-1956) Expressionist painter Emil Nolde first began to explore watercolor in the 1890s while attempting to capture the fleeting beauty of a vibrant red sunrise in his native Germany. His subsequent experimentation with the medium played a significant role in the development of his artistic identity, as it allowed for the intense use of color and gestural impasto which have come to define his style. He preferred using absorbent Japan paper, which he moistened slightly before saturating it with paint-soaked brushes, applied with varying degrees of pressure. As a result, the colors would blossom on the paper, overlapping with each other and revealing luminous depth, subtle transitions and nuanced tones. In the words of his wife, “when painting, he is lavish with his watercolors. He is little troubled if splotches fall from his brush…I have often marveled at how reckless he is with the wet brushes, even though he could fear at any moment one of the threatening drips might fall… he takes that danger in his stride and accordingly is free to work in a rush, with no inhibitions…” After decades of such exploration and experimentation with the medium, painting with watercolor developed into what the artist referred to as an ‘inner need.’ The spontaneous and fluid nature of the medium allowed him to explore his natural impulses and instinctive creativity. He would start each painting without any preliminary drawings, and instead yielded to the organic inspiration of his imagination. “I like to avoid all prior contemplation (...) The product emerges through the work of our hands,” he wrote.   These two intensely colored works are representative of the artist’s fascination with the natural world and are fine examples of his most revisited themes: seascapes and still lifes. Nolde painted the Fisherman on a Lake around the years 1925 - 1930, likely during a journey to Switzerland. Nolde preferred to work directly from the natural environment, often choosing to venture out in all weather in order to experience first-hand the natural forces of his immediate surroundings, thus imbuing his paintings with an inherent and visceral energy. Nolde’s landscapes are said to be expressions of his own emotions. They are an attempt at transmitting not just the visual sensation of the landscape before him, but also the physical and emotional effect this environment instills in man.   Nolde executed Bowl of Flowers with Fuchsia around the year 1930. The flowers shown in this composition were likely arranged by his wife Ada at their home in at Seebüll where they cultivated lush gardens. Full of radiant color and vitality, the artist’s emotional preoccupation with nature is evident here. For Nolde, flowers were a symbol of happiness, and painting them provided solace from the anxieties of his political realities, transporting him into a vibrant world of color. 1. S.

JACK HAMILTON BUSH

(canadian, 1909-1988)

One of Canada’s most celebrated artists, John Hamilton “Jack” Bush was born in Toronto, Ontario in 1909. He developed a talent and interest in art at a young age, studying at both The Royal Canadian Academy and The Ontario College of Art, while also pursuing a career as a commercial artist.  Early on, he was influenced by the work of Charles Comfort as well as the Group of Seven – a coalition of prominent Canadian landscape painters of the 1920s and 1930s. It was not until later, in the 1950s, that Bush was first exposed to a more radical style of abstraction.  During this time, he made frequent visits to New York City and grew familiar with the avant-garde work of the Abstract Expressionists, whose bold and experimental style captivated Bush, prompting a dramatic evolution of his own artistic philosophies. He left behind the representational subjects of his past work and began to explore abstraction in earnest. In 1953, together with ten other like-minded artists, he formed the Painter’s Eleven, an affiliation of artists who shared a common commitment to abstract painting. The group held their first solo exhibition – organized by Bush – in 1954 at the Roberts Gallery in Toronto, marking the first major commercial exhibition of abstract art in Canada. Soon thereafter, Bush’s work drew the attention and admiration of Clement Greenberg, the legendary art critic and champion of Abstract Expressionism, with whom Bush would share a lifelong friendship and who served as a mentor of sorts, encouraging the artist to explore and develop his style and vision. The present work, “Summer Gone,” is an exquisite example of the artist’s color-field paintings of the 1970’s, a particularly accomplished and esteemed period in his career. Indeed, in 1972 – just four years before “Summer Gone” was painted – Bush was awarded a solo exhibition at the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston. The noted New York Times art critic Hilton Kramer praised the show, noting “[Bush] is indeed a painter of enormous eloquence who has found in the vocabulary of color abstraction the means of articulating a range of feeling all his own”. “Summer Gone” is emblematic of the artist’s exceptional output during these last years of his life. Its gently mottled background, rendered in soft neutral tones, provides a compelling counterpoint to the energetic, colorful bursts of brushstrokes that dance across the surface. This elegant, lyrical and expressive painting, executed on a rare dynamically shaped canvas, is surely a very important work from the artist’s latter years. Purchased from the Barbara Divver Gallery in 1981, this painting has remained in the same private family collection for over thirty-five years.

zao wou-ki (chinese/french, 1920-2013) Zao Wou-Ki, the Chinese-French master of postwar abstraction, created a unique visual language that drew from both western modernism and Chinese aesthetics. His artistic journey began at age fifteen when he enrolled in the art academy at Hangzhou, continued during wartime in Chongqing, and eventually led him to Paris in 1948, an anticipated twoyear visit that lasted a lifetime. Within a few years of arriving in Paris, his modernist aesthetic was recognized in Europe, America, and Asia, and today Zao Wou-Ki is celebrated as an early exemplar of global abstraction. “15.04.80 - Triptyque” captures the artist at the height of his mature style. Zao’s early explorations with Chinese calligraphy gave way to pure abstraction in 1957, and by the late 1960s, Zao softened the hard edges of abstraction with the sensibilities and structural nuances of his earliest artistic training: ink painting. One sees that shift in “15.04.80 Triptyque.” Its complex evocation of space oscillates between abstraction and tangibility, and at once suggests crashing waves, misty landscape forms, and cosmic forces made visible. The painting’s power can be attributed to Zao’s masterful color sense, and to his muscular application of pigments. The soft palette here deviates from the vibrant colors of many of Zao’s paintings. Indeed, “15.04.80 - Triptyque.” completed in early April, suggests the pale colors of springtime -- yellow, pink, blue -- veiled in mist, and punctuated by occasional passages of darker pigment. The richly textured surface, another distinctive feature of Zao’s paintings, further animates the work. Thickly applied pigments reach a crescendo in the central panel, giving every indication of having been applied with crumpled paper or cloth rather than swept on with conventional brushstrokes. Throughout his long career, Zao set continual artistic challenges for himself. He experimented with different media, moving between oils and watercolors, and mastered a variety of printing processes. He also experimented with scale, working on ever-larger compositions from the mid-1950s. And beginning in 1966, he tried working with multiple panels, which offered a means of increasing scale. Some of them -- diptychs, triptychs, quadriptychs – achieved near-monumental size. “15.04.80 - Triptyque,” though, is not one of these. Instead, it is one of a handful of smallscale triptychs, a format that Zao turned to occasionally beginning in the mid-1970s. While multiple canvases made perfect sense for enlarging overall compositional size, why these small ones? The answer may lie in the challenge they posed for him. “15.04.80 - Triptyque” cannot be understood merely as a reduction of a larger work. Instead, it required that Zao create a harmonious composition on an entirely different scale, one that made sense structurally and visually, given the three-canvas format. Balance and proportion needed to be accommodated. Furthermore, the bold gestural marks that are a hallmark of Zao’s large works required more restraint here, and yet needed to achieve similar visual impact – which they do. Arthur Hartman acquired Zao Wou-Ki’s “15.04.80 - Triptyque” shortly after its creation. As American ambassador to France, Hartman and Zao moved in the same cultural circles and came to know one another well. Given Zao Wou-Ki’s wide-ranging interests and magnetic personality, it comes as no surprise that the two forged a warm friendship, with this painting a physical manifestation of their bond.

selections from the collection of perry & june ottenberg | lots 75-82

Perry and June Ottenberg were married for sixty-five years and together they built an exceptional art collection, much of it focused on the artists and craftsmen of their native Philadelphia. They were ardent supporters of some of the city’s most important artists and institutions, including the Philadelphia Museum of Art, Woodmere Art Museum, Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts, Moore College of Art, and Tyler School of Art.   Dr. Ottenberg served on the board of Moore College of Art, as well as the Pennsylvania Academy, to which he ultimately donated a major collection of papers of Philadelphia artist Arthur B. Carles.  In this way, the Ottenbergs extended their personal interest in art into a public service of some of the city’s most important institutions.   Their collection reflects their particular regional interest and includes an impressive array of works by local contemporary artists such as Jane Piper, Elizabeth Osborne and Warren Rohrer, several fine examples of which are being offered here.   However, it is the work of the noted American modernist Arthur B. Carles that seems to have captivated them most of all.  Carles, a native Philadelphian, was featured in the 1913 vanguard Armory Show in New York, which introduced modern art to the American public for the first time.  The importance of his inclusion in this landmark exhibition and his influence both as an artist and teacher cannot be overstated. The Ottenbergs recognized his significance and their collection includes a large number of oil paintings and works on paper in various media by the artist.  Many of these works will be offered in Freeman’s American Art & Pennsylvania Impressionist Auction, to be held on June 3rd.   In addition to fine art, the Ottenbergs were deeply engaged with modern craft and design.  Among the most important collectors of Rudolf Staffel’s porcelain, the Ottenbergs lent or donated works to dozens of museums and exhibitions, including landmark shows at the Philadelphia Museum of Art.  Excellent examples of Staffel porcelain, important pieces of George Nakashima furniture and other fine works of design will be offered in Freeman’s Modern Design Auction, to be held on June 4th.

note: This lot is accompanied by a certificate of authenticity issued by the Archivio Consagra and will be included in their forthcoming catalogue raisonne. According to the Archivio, the present lot is the second sculpture created by the artist from this edition of two. Rather than using moulds to cast his sculpture, Consagra constructed his creations by hand. Therefore, the two pieces in this edition differ from one another slightly. The present example, executed in 1963, includes details within the arrangement of the welded bronze bars at top left that differ somewhat from those in the first edition, which was created in 1962. $25,000-40,000

flash: british photography from the collection of jeffrey m. kaplan | lots 83-114 A true renaissance man, Mr. Kaplan’s life and experiences have led him to pursue many areas of collecting, rather than limiting himself to a specific genre or medium. As a result, he has assembled an extensive and eclectic collection that spans centuries and continents, including European prints, Chinese ceramics, American modernist works on paper and 20th century design. Freeman’s had the privilege of offering over 500 works from this impressive collection on April 6th, 2017, which were received with great enthusiasm by collectors, dealers and advisors as evidenced by the sale’s 96% sell-through rate. It is with great pleasure that we now present an additional selection of artwork from a collecting category that Mr. Kaplan amassed with great passion: British photography, of the 1950s and 1960s.The artists featured here are some of Britain’s most well-recognized photographers and their work has come to define the visual culture of the 20th century, both in the United Kingdom and beyond. Their photographs, which have graced the pages of iconic publications such as The Sunday Times, British Vogue, Queen, and Harper’s Bazaar, showcase their quintessential interpretation of fashion, celebrity, and landscape through the British lens.

Born in the Hampstead neighborhood of London in 1904, Sir Cecil Walter Hardy Beaton was a renowned photographer, as well as an award-winning theater, costume and interior designer. Beaton began working as a photographer for British Vogue in 1927, and was later appointed by Queen Elizabeth II to the Ministry of Information, where he served as a war photographer during WWII. He frequently photographed the Queen and other members of the Royal Family, and it is his portraits of celebrities and the aristocracy for which he is best known. Beaton received Knighthood in 1972.

Terence O’Neill was born in London in 1938. He quickly found his niche in the world of fashion and celebrity that so dominated the English capital in the 1960s. O’Neill photographed many famous subjects, most of whom he knew personally, such as pop legends like The Beatles, Elton John and The Rolling Stones, as well as film icons Audrey Hepburn and Brigitte Bardot. O’Neill is best known for the spontaneous, casual and candid nature of his photography, which he achieved with a 35mm camera that required less distance and a higher degree of intimacy between him and his subjects. O’Neill is an Honorary Fellow of the Royal Photographic Society, and his work is included in the permanent collection of the National Portrait Gallery in London.

terence donovan Terence Donovan was born in the East End of London in 1936, and first experimented with photography at the age of 11 when he enrolled in the London School of Photo-Engraving. Along with photographer Brian Duffy (Lot 95), Donovan was instrumental in documenting the cultural and fashion movement which occurred in London in the 1960s, known as ‘Swinging London.’ His close associations with prominent actors, musicians, and royalty elevated Donovan to a celebrity status of his own. Donovan was known for the irreverent and sensual quality of his photographs, which were regularly featured in publications such as Vogue and Harper’s Bazaar. Often choosing to capture his models in offbeat locations, such as the war-ravaged streets of London, or in industrial settings, against steelworks and iron bridges, his gritty black-and-white style sometimes resembled reportage more than fashion photography. This new visual language was unlike anything that came before and eventually earned him the highest distinction of Fellow in the Royal Photographic Society.

patrick lichfield Patrick Anson, known professionally by the name of his inherited earldom, was born in 1939. After serving in the British Army for three years beginning in 1959, Lichfield started his career as a photographer’s assistant before establishing his own reputation independently. He championed digital photography, adopting the medium quickly and pioneering its eventual acceptance as the professional standard. Known for his portraits of high society, Lichfield’s aristocratic upbringing—his mother was Princess Anne of Denmark—afforded him access to the British Royal Family. He was the official photographer at the wedding of Prince Charles and Diana Spencer in 1981.

snowdon Anthony Armstrong-Jones was born in 1930 into the aristocracy, the son of a barrister and the Countess of Rosse. An established fashion photographer and portraitist, he served as the art adviser for The Sunday Times Magazine, and his work was regularly featured in Vogue and the Daily Telegraph. In 1957, he photographed the official portraits for both Queen Elizabeth II and the Duke of Edinburgh for their Canadian tour. It was through his marriage just three years later to the Queen’s sister, Princess Margaret, that he was granted the title Earl of Snowdon, which he would use professionally for the rest of his career, despite the couple’s divorce in 1978.

Born in London in 1912, Edwin Smith was a prominent photographer and artist. Beginning in 1935, he was a freelance photographer for Vogue, although his interests ultimately lay outside the glamorous realm of fashion and celebrity. The son of a stonemason and an architect by training, he was more fascinated by the English landscape and craftsmanship of its architecture. Lured out of the capital city into the countryside, Smith toured the nation photographing small mining communities, cathedrals and abbeys, farm yards, docks and follies.

herbert ponting Expedition photographer Herbert Ponting was born in Wiltshire, England, in 1870. He was already an established photographer, having traveled extensively throughout Asia and Europe as a professional photojournalist, when he embarked on a three-year expedition to Antarctica. In 1911, he joined the Terra Nova to Cape Evans, Ross Island, where he took glassplate photographs and short movies—called cinematographs, at the time—of the barren, hostile tundra. Ponting’s work captures the southernmost tip of the globe during what is considered to be the “Heroic Age of Antarctic Exploration.”

These are for guidance only, and all lots will be sold “as is” as per our Terms and Conditions of Sale.

Once the first bid has been placed, the auctioneer asks for higher bids in increments determined by the auctioneer. To place your bid, simply raise your paddle until the auctioneer acknowledges you.

Endangered Species Lots marked * are manufactured in whole or in part of restricted materials that may include tortoiseshell, ivory, mother-of-pearl, coral, rhinoceros horn, whalebone or marine ivory. Such materials may require specific licenses, certificates, or CITES documentation for import, export, moving between states in the U.S., or resale. Obtaining these documents may require scientific, laboratory or other expert analysis, in order to establish which species or genus the material came from. Freeman’s is unable to provide this information, and the obligation is on the purchaser of a lot containing any of these materials to ensure that they are able to obtain all the necessary or required documents should they need to, prior to bidding on the lot. If proper documentation or licenses etc. cannot be obtained for a purchased lot, the purchaser will still be required to make an on time payment for the lot as per our standard terms and conditions. Freeman’s cataloguing of the lots marked with this symbol * represents the best of our opinion, and the absence of this symbol from any lot description does not form a warranty that the lot will be free from any licensing or certification restrictions.

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.

Freeman’s will not be responsible for any loss, damage, theft, or otherwise responsible for any goods left in Freeman’s possession after ten (10) days. 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

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 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.

The Buyer’s Premium shall be: 25% on the first $200,000 of the hammer price of each lot, 20% on the portion from $200,001 through $3,000,000, 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. Freeman’s is not responsible for any acts or omissions in packing or shipping of purchased lots whether or not such carrier is recommended by Freeman’s. Packing and handling of purchased lots is at the responsibility of the buyer and is at the entire risk of the buyer. 16 In no event shall any liability of Freeman’s to the buyer exceed the purchase price actually paid. 17 No claimed modification or amendment of this Agreement on the part of any party shall be deemed extant, enforceable or provable unless it is in writing that has been signed by the parties to this Agreement. No course of dealing and no delay or omission on the part of Freeman’s in exercising any right under this Agreement shall operate as a waiver of such right or any other right and waiver on any one or more occasions shall not be construed as a bar to or waiver of any right or remedy of Freeman’s on any future occasion. 18 These Conditions of Sale and the buyer’s, the Consignor’s and Freeman’s rights under these Conditions of Sale shall be governed by, construed and enforced in accordance with the laws of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania and Consignor and Buyer agree to the exclusive jurisdiction of the Philadelphia, Pennsylvania Court of Common Pleas and the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania.
