My fellow art lovers, While there are several galleries and museums worldwide that have launched their versions of “Women in Art” exhibitions to help address the gender disparity in artist visibility, to my knowledge it has only rarely been done in an auction setting. The women that are represented in this catalogue each had their own struggles, whether it was to be married to another artist whom almost certainly overshadowed their own careers, being less prolific because of societal pressures to stay home and raise a family, or the treatment of their art as a “hobby”. Despite more women being enrolled in art school (6075% at the university level [Steinhauer]), they are less represented as fine artists in galleries, museums, and at auction. Acknowledging “discovery and subsequent recognition is the lifeblood of the art world” (Gaudens, p. xii), I see this catalogue as a celebration of female artists, their struggles, and their passion, and my goal is to illuminate the works of underrepresented artists working from the 19th century through today. By giving these pieces an elevated platform, the quality of the works speak for themselves. In the auction world, putting together any sale is always a labor of love. Part of you has to love what you sell, as creating a catalogue is no small task. Our job is to make it look easy to the outside world, but in truth, it is hard, time consuming, and takes an entire team of dedicated people to pull it all together. I am proud of this sale and am happy to see it come to fruition; I am also excited to see it grow and evolve in the coming years. My aspiration is that our next Women in Art catalogue will be even more diverse and have an emphasis on influential Post-War and Contemporary women artists such as Lee Krasner, Joan Mitchell, Marilyn Minter, and the Guerilla Girls, all of whom were massively influential in the progression of feminist and political art. This catalogue was made possible by the support I received from the other specialists who asked every client, vetted and actively called all their sources to find special pieces; our clients who were excited by and supported my vision or who consigned to the sale; my mentor Katie Halligan for her amazing essay contributions that showcased some of these women; my colleague Kim Jarand for being the sounding board to help launch this idea; and the entire team at Moran’s who worked together in various capacities to make the idea a reality. Warm wishes, Morgana Blackwelder Fine Art Director

Edith White 4

Edith White was one of the only professionally trained female artists working in Southern California by the time she established her studio in Los Angeles in 1882. Known best for her complex, realistic and academically formal compositions of roses, White was also a noted landscape, mission and portrait painter. Born in Iowa, White and her Quaker family migrated to California via ox-drawn cart when she was four years old. They initially settled in a mining camp in the Sierra Nevadas in 1859 and remained in Nevada County or San Francisco until 1868. White studied art at Mills Seminary (now Mills College) and graduated in 1874. She continued her studies in San Francisco under Virgil Williams before moving to Pasadena in the early 1880s. Except for a year studying at the Art Students League in New York from 1892-93, White was an active member of the Southern California arts community for decades. She exhibited widely, particularly in the 1890s, and, in 1896, was a founding member of the Pasadena Art Association. White and her family were very close and deeply religious, and her parents encouraged her to focus on painting while discouraging her from marrying or starting a family. White and her parents were also active in the Theosophical Society, a 19th Century esoteric religious movement, and moved to Pont Loma about 1902 in order to live in the Theosophical community, Lomaland, that was lead by noted Theosophist Katherine Tingley. For 28 years, White taught painting at the Raja-Yoga School in the Lomaland settlement while producing her own work without commercial pressures (P. Trenton, “Independent Spirits: Women Painters of the American West,� 1890-1945, p. 44). White returned to Northern California in 1930 and settled in Berkeley. She had a studio and also taught there until her death in 1946.

Mabel Alvarez

(1891 - 1985)

Mabel Alvarez was an innovative and well-known 20th century California painter who worked in a variety of mediums including oil, watercolor, works on paper and murals; and painted wide-ranging subjects including portraits, still lifes, and landscapes. Will South writes of the artist, “[She was] more adventurous than the Impressionist-oriented instruction that formed her and less radical than most emerging Modernist trends around her – but always sensitive, seductive, and searching” (reprinted on www.mabelalvarez.com from the book “Mabel Alvarez, A Retrospective,” Loyola Marymount University, 1999).

10

Alvarez was born on the Island of Oahu in Hawaii in 1891. When she was 15 her family moved to Berkeley, California and then finally settled in Los Angeles three years later, in 1909. Alvarez exhibited artistic talent from a young age and was a star art student at Los Angeles High School. She had her first major mural commission in 1915 when she worked with her high school art teacher, James Edwin McBurney, on a Panama-California Exposition mural project that won a gold medal. That same year Alvarez enrolled in the School for Illustration and Painting and worked under artists and school co-founders William Cahill and John Hubbard Rich, whose teachings gave her strong foundations in French and American Impressionistic techniques, and exceptional skill in draftsmanship.  Alvarez constantly endeavored to have new experiences, and to investigate different artistic styles and mediums. At the same time that she would take commissions from prominent Los Angeles families to create cheerful paintings for children, Alvarez was also exploring the writings of Will Levington Comfort, a Los Angeles philosopher who championed meditation practices as a way to achieve harmony. From her experiences learning from Comfort and attending meetings at his spiritualist colony in the Hollywood Hills, Alvarez created a number of symbolic dream-like paintings beginning in about 1918. In 1919 Alvarez became a pupil of important California Modernist Stanton MacDonald-Wright who had previously co-founded the avant-garde art movement of Synchromism with Morgan Russell. In 1922, Alvarez and fellow artists John Hubbard Rich, Henri de Kruif, Luvena and Edouard Vysekal, Donna Schuster, Roscoe Schrader, and Clarence Hinkle formed the “Group of Eight,” a group distinguishing themselves as having more modernist-leaning tendencies than the California Art Club’s singular focus on Impressionism. In 1927 she was exposed to the work of Morgan Russell and finally met the artist in 1931. The color-sense and rhythmic forms of Russell’s work were strong influences on, and fit well with, Alvarez’s innate tendencies to seek harmony and balance in her own works’ compositions, subjects and palettes. Through the 1920s and 1930s, Alvarez was regularly and successfully exhibiting her work. Her 1923 “Self-Portrait” won the Women’s Federation Prize that year (and is the cover image of the 1995 book “Independent Spirits: Woman Painters of the American West, 1890-1945”). After mourning both her father's death and a broken relationship in 1937, Alvarez spent a year in Hawaii and painted brightly colored portraits, figure studies, and still lifes. In 1941, the Los Angeles Museum mounted a one-woman show of her Hawaiian subjects. Explorations of color balance and harmony continued to be a singular focus of her work into the 1950s, particularly evident in paintings made on her travels to the Caribbean islands and Mexico. Painting into her seventies, later works often depict religious and symbolic subjects. Alvarez died in a Los Angeles nursing home at age 94 in 1985.

Nell Walker Warner 20

Nell Walker Warner was an active member of the Southern California plein air arts community from about the 1920s to the 1950s. Warner is known best for opulent floral still lifes, depictions of the Cape Ann, Massachusetts harbor, and varied and detailed California landscapes. Warner was born in Nebraska and graduated from the Central College for Women in Lexington, Missouri in 1910. She taught briefly in Colorado Springs, Colorado before moving to Los Angeles where she furthered her studies at the Los Angeles School of Art and Design. From 1916-18, Warner taught art classes at the Hollywood School for Girls and the Westlake School for Girls in Los Angeles and established a studio and home in La CaĂąada. Beginning in the 1920s, Warner experienced tremendous professional growth and success. She studied under local artists Nicolai Fechin, Fritz Werner and Paul Lauritz, spent time in Europe, and summered three times in Cape Ann, Massachusetts. Warner served as art curator of the Tuesday Afternoon Club and worked as an artist on backgrounds for titles of silent motion pictures. She was an active member of many arts clubs including the California Art Club, the Laguna Beach Art Association, and Women Painters of the West (serving as its president from 1946-48), and was exhibiting extensively, often winning awards for her work, throughout California. After a divorce and later remarriage, Warner moved to Carmel in 1952 where she continued a successful career painting and exhibiting. She remained in Northern California until her death in 1970.

Marion Kavanagh Wachtel 30

Marion Kavanagh Wachtel was a principal member of the early 20th century California Plein Air Impressionist landscape painting movement who worked in watercolors and later also oil painting. Wachtel was born into a third generation artistic family in Milwaukee, Wisconsin in 1873. Her mother, a leading late 19th century Milwaukee painter and teacher, and her great grandfather both attended the Royal Academy in London. Wachtel began studying painting with her mother and then later in Chicago under Henry Spread, perhaps at his eponymous school, Spread’s Art Academy. She continued her studies with a focus on portrait painting at the Art Institute of Chicago, working under John Vanderpoel, Pauline Doane, and Fredrick Freer; and was also a pupil of Richard Lorenz in Milwaukee and William Merritt Chase in New York. Wachtel taught at the Art Institute of Chicago for several years while pursuing her career primarily as a portrait painter, though she painted other subjects as well. In 1903, she was commissioned by the Santa Fe Railway to paint scenes of the West in exchange for free passage to California. Wachtel readily accepted the commission and briefly landed in Northern California where she became a pupil of William Keith. The following year, Wachtel prepared to move to Southern California and Keith suggested she study there with Elmer Wachtel. The artists quickly fell in love and married in Chicago in 1904 before returning to California and settling in the Arroyo Seco of Pasadena. After her marriage, Wachtel dropped the ‘u’ in her surname, spelling it ‘Kavanagh’. The Wachtels habitually painted together; Marion worked in watercolor while Elmer worked in oil. At this successful period of Wachtel’s career, she focused mainly on landscape painting though she periodically included figures in her compositions, and revisited portraiture and still life occasionally as well. The artistic couple exhaustively searched for fresh subject matter in remote, hard-to-reach areas of California, the broader Western United States and Mexico, via horseback and later by car. Wachtel was a founding member of the Pasadena Society of Painters (1924) and the California Water Color Society, and was elected to the New York Watercolor Society in 1922. Wachtel was nationally recognized and exhibited her paintings individually, in joint shows with her husband, and at group shows in various galleries specializing in watercolors or California Impressionism on both coasts. Between 1921 and 1926 she had regular exhibitions at the important early Los Angeles gallery Cannel and Chaffin. Wachtel’s plein air landscapes painted in the Southern California, Southwest and Mexican regions have been popular with collectors for more than a century. Early works in watercolor reveal her mastery of that medium in their tight and meticulously detailed scenes. Into the 1920s and certainly after the death of her husband in 1929, Wachtel’s work became more spontaneous and loose as she expanded her mediums to include oil painting.

Kathryn W. Leighton 40

Kathryn Leighton was a prolific painter of a variety of subjects including landscapes, still life and portraiture, but she is most celebrated for her large body of work depicting Native American peoples primarily from Midwestern and Southwestern tribes such as the present masterful example. Leighton produced approximately 700 formal portraits of Native American peoples that received international recognition during her lifetime and form a lasting, detailed record of the sitters and their tribes’ clothing, adornment and customs. Leighton was born near Plainfield, New Hampshire and graduated from the Massachusetts Normal Art School in 1900. Soon after she was married to Edward Leighton who would go on to become a prominent lawyer. Edward was both financially and emotionally supportive of his wife’s artistic endeavors throughout their happy marriage. The couple moved to Los Angeles in 1910 and Leighton opened a studio in South Los Angeles while continuing her studies at the Stickney School of Art in Pasadena and with artist Jean Mannheim. Leighton was active in the Los Angeles arts community and served as vice president of the California Art Club circa late 1910s. In this early period in Los Angeles, Leighton’s work was mainly focused on blooming deserts, floral still lifes and local landscapes. Around 1917, Leighton met important Western painter Charles Marion Russell at a party at Jack Wilkinson Smith’s Alhambra studio and the two became good friends. Russell encouraged Leighton to visit and paint Glacier National Park (which she did and produced a number of panoramic landscapes of the area) and later, in 1926, brought her back to Montana where he introduced her to members of the Blackfeet Indian tribe and officials of the Northern Pacific Railway. Leighton began painting portraits of Native American Indians, often out of her Los Angeles studio, starting around 1918, and her talent and reputation were established at the time of her meeting with the Northern Pacific Railway officials. They commissioned her to paint portraits of Blackfeet elders as part of an exhibition and lecture series the railroad was financing as a way (from their perspective) to present and preserve a vanishing way of life. Leighton and her family spent a summer in Glacier National Park as guests of the railroad, and the railroad paid Blackfeet elders to serve as her models. By the end of that successful summer, the railroad purchased 20 portraits for “high prices” for their exhibition which further solidified Leighton’s reputation as an expert portrait painter; and the Blackfeet people adopted her and gave her the name “AnnaTar-Kee” (meaning “beautiful woman in spirit”) (P. Trenton, “Independent Spirits: Woman of the American West, 1890-1945”, 62). Leighton continued to make annual painting trips to the Blackfeet tribe as well as other Midwestern and Southwestern tribes including Sioux, Cherokee, Pawnee, Osage, Hopi and Navajo. She even travelled as far afield as the Iroquois Nation. In each portrait, including the subject painting included in this sale, Leighton chronicled in great detail the leather clothing, bead and bone work, jewelry ornamentation, bonnets and headdresses, interior spaces, exterior dwellings, and especially the individual features of her sitters. In the present portrait, a Plains Indian, likely a member of the Blackfeet tribe, sits in profile in an upholstered western armchair looking intently beyond the painting’s right border. Exceptionally fine contouring and modeling of the figure’s distinct facial features is heightened by Leighton’s side-view composition. The interior walls behind the figure are decorated with images of primitive figures reminiscent of ancient cave drawings, and a small Nez Perce cornhusk bag with geometric overlay adorns the wall, partially cropped out of the frame. The figure is dressed in an elaborately decorated hide shirt and pants, and cradles a pipe in his right hand. A bone breastplate, bear claw necklace, turquoise-colored hair ties and a dramatic feather bonnet are all painted with exquisite detail and come together to create a powerful composition. This painting of a prominent member of a Plains Indian tribe is an exceptionally fine example of Leighton’s renowned series of Native American portraiture.

Antonia J. Greene 48

Antonia Greene was born in East Prussia, Germany in 1881 and immigrated with her family to New York when she was nine years old. She was married and had a son by 1919 and ten years later moved to Santa Barbara where she remained until her death in 1957. Details of Greene’s biography and artistic education are scarce, but within a year of settling in Santa Barbara, Greene’s female portrait study titled “The Ethiopian” was shown at the 1930 grand opening of the Faulkner Memorial Art Gallery and hung alongside paintings by other noted local artists including Colin Campbell Cooper, Fernand Lungren, Edward Borein and John Marshall Gamble. She exhibited at least two other times at the Faulkner: in a 1931 summer exhibition, and included another female portrait titled “The Leghorn Hat” in a 1939 show. In 1940, Greene had a one-person show at the Montecito Country Club. Greene’s known work consists almost entirely of portraits of women, though at least two depictions of her son are known as well as floral subjects and tabletop still lifes. Greene appears to have primary worked in the 1930s, perhaps in preparation for her 1940 exhibition.

(1909 - 1977)

Gertude Abercrombie 60

Gertrude Abercrombie was born in Austin, Texas in 1909, the daughter of two traveling opera singers. Moving from Austin to Berlin to Aledo, Illinois, the Abercrombie family eventually settled down in the Hyde Park neighborhood of Chicago, where Gertrude would spend the rest of her life. Following her graduation from the University of Illinois in Urbana-Champaign, Abercrombie briefly studied art at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago and commercial art at the American Academy for Art. In 1931, she took a job as an illustrator at Mesirow department store, and in 1932, at the advice of her friend Tom Kempf, began to paint seriously. Abercrombie's style, subject matter, and palette are often considered restrained compared to many of her contemporaries. In 1951, she said, "I am not interested in complicated things nor in the commonplace. I like to paint simple things that are a little strange." Indeed, her paintings are often composed of subdued palettes with minimal subjects and objects, including cats, jacks, playing cards, robin's eggs, doors, stairways, trees, and crescent moons. These objects were re-used often, rearranged in different dream-like compositions that echoed Abercrombie's own introspection, isolation, and reflection. While her paintings have visual connections to the works of Giorgio de Chirico and René Magritte, she did not describe her work in the same vein as European surrealism and can be considered a Midwestern regionalist with deep roots in Chicago and its arts community. To that end, Abercrombie was the self-appointed "Queen of Chicago", and throughout her life she maintained an incredible friend circle of artists, writers, and musicians. Abercrombie often threw salons and parties for her friends, who included Dizzy Gillespie, James Purdy, and Karl Priebe, and her apartment in Hyde Park served as social flashpoint for the Chicago creative community. For her incredible body of work and influence on the Chicago fine art scene, Abercrombie was given a retrospective at the Hyde Park Art Center in 1977 shortly before her death in the same year. While her work was never forgotten, it has gained momentum in the past several years, and her first exhibition in New York since 1952 was recently held at KARMA from August to September 2018.

After studying at the Colarossi Academy and the Ecole des Beaux Arts, one of Giberson's figural paintings was exhibited in the salon of the indepednent Société Nationale des Beaux-Arts at the Champ-de-Mars in 1899. In that same year, the Gibersons returned to Manhattan, and Anna continued to paint, showing her first work with the Art Institute of Chicago in 1904. It was around this time that she took her mother's name, Indiana, although she would not change the "I" to "Y" in Gyberson until 1919. In 1918, Gyberson settled in Chicago and began the most prolific time in her career working at Tree Studios, a living space and workshop for American artists that fostered Pauline Palmer, Richard Florsheim, and Anna Lynch, among others. In 1920 and 1924 her paintings were included in the exibition catalogue for the Art Institute's "Chicago and Vicinity" exhibition, and she was a member of the Associaiton of Chicago Painters and Sculptors and the Chicago Galleries Assocition, where her paintings won prizes in 1926 and 1928. Gyberson was known for her dark, exotic depictions of seminude women in fantastic costumes placed in carefully constructed interiors. Heavy shadows give a depth to her compositions, while bright highilghts on the face and torso of her subjects create a sense of isolation and contemplation that extend far beyond the male gaze. Gyberson's rough brushstrokes lend a dream-like quality to her paintings, imbuing her work with an ambiguity of power that shifts between subject and viewer. Like Gyberson herself, the paintings are a puzzle, and they ask the viewer to delve deeper than the typical female nude.

Indiana Gyberson

While little is known about the life of Indiana Gyberson, her distinct style and sensual subject matter set her apart from many of her contemporaries at the turn of the century. Born Anna Giberson in 1875 Brooklyn, she was the daugher of Civil War surgeon Charles Giberson and his wife, Indiana. Charles died in 1879, leaving Indiana, Anna, and Anna's sister, Mabel, what must have been a sizable inheritance. In 1896, Anna studied with famed American Impressionist William Merrit Chase at his Shinnecock School of art, and in the following year, the widow and misses Giberson traveled to Paris, where Mabel studied music and Anna devoted herself to painting.

Jae Carmichael 82

Jae Carmichael is perhaps most familiar to the California art community as a modernistleaning artist working primarily in the mediums of oil and watercolor, but she was also a writer, an independent filmmaker, a sculptor, a photographer, a gallery and museum director and an educator. Born in Hollywood in 1925, Carmichael studied at Mills College (1942-44), received a bachelor’s degree from University of Southern California (1951), a master’s in fine arts from what is now Claremont Graduate University (1955), and a doctorate in cinematography and art history also from USC (1972). In addition to her extensive institutional education, she studied under artists Francis de Erdely, Millard Sheets, Phil Dike, Dong Kingman, and William Gaw. Carmichael became a member of the California Watercolor Society in 1953 and exhibited annually with the group for decades. She was also an active member of the American Watercolor Society. In the 1960s, Carmichael served as director of the Wooden Horse Gallery in Laguna Beach; a gallery that exhibited noted Southern California modern artists such as Karl Benjamin, John McLaughlin and Sister Mary Corita Kent. In 1972 Carmichael became the founding director of the Pacific Asia Museum in Pasadena. During this period Carmichael also taught fine art classes at various local galleries and museums, Pasadena City College, and taught film and television classes at USC. Carmichael also served stints as director of the Pasadena Society of Artists and a director of the California Watercolor Society. Endlessly exploring new mediums and technology, Carmichael was nominated for an Emmy Award in 1976 for a film titled “Heritage of Hope” that she made for the Los Angeles Unified School District. She was also involved more recently, in the early 1990s, in creating the Mountain View Memorial Gallery at Mountain View Cemetery and Mausoleum in Altadena. While involved with that gallery she curated shows, made a film titled “Arbor of Light”, commissioned by the Pasadena Cemetery Association, and initiated the installation of Memory Medallions on a selection of historic tombstones in the cemetery (smart phone enabled barcodes that link to short films on notable people buried there). Carmichael was an active, important and avant-garde member of the Southern California arts community and regularly exhibited her painting, sculpture and photography nationally for over 60 years before her death in Pasadena in 2005.

Glenna Hartmann 92

Glenna Hartmann is a noted California artist who worked in a contemporary plein air realist style principally focused on creating California landscapes in the pastel medium. Hartmann was a founding member of the Santa Barbara-based Oak Group and was also an active member of other important art groups including the Pastel Society of America, the California Art Club and the Laguna Plein Air Painters Association. Hartmann was born in Morristown, New Jersey and exhibited an early interest in painting and drawing. Following her scientific father’s path, Hartmann briefly studied mathematics and physics Wells College in Aurora, New York before shifting her focus to fine art and transferring to the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts. There she was mentored by artists Arthur De Costa, Will Barnet, Dan Miller and Marshall Glasier and spent seven months studying abroad in Europe. She also attended mural painting school in San Miguel de Allende, Mexico. In 1975 Hartmann moved to California and settled in Carpinteria. In this new environment, Hartmann initially painted portraiture and animal subjects but soon permanently shifted focus to landscape painting. In 1986, Hartmann and a group of friends started the Oak Group, a consortium of 25 shifting artists who exhibit throughout the year to benefit environmental organizations and preservation causes. Of particular importance to Hartmann was support of The Nature Conservancy’s successful Santa Cruz Island restoration project through an annual benefit art show. The Oak Group continues today and is nationally recognized for their efforts donating money and support to groups such as The Nature Conservancy, the Channel Islands National Park and the Land Trust for Santa Barbara County. Hartmann actively exhibited in galleries, particularly at Montecito’s now-defunct Easton Gallery where she was represented for 18 years; and regularly participated in “paint-outs,” including a 1997 experience painting and staying in a Normandy chateau in France. Her pastels were widely and regularly featured in books and national fine art magazines. Hartmann’s pastel and oil landscapes are a direct and emotional response to the beauty, diversity and quality of light of her favorite painting locations in the Santa Barbara environs, on Santa Cruz Island, at Rancho San Fernando Rey and even in Northern California and the Southwest.

1117 Mildred Kouzel (1922 - 2016 Long Beach, CA) “Stretch” Patinated and painted bronze Signed: M. Kouzel (c) 78 22.5” H x 12.25” W x 6.75” D $1,000/1,500 Notes: Mildred Kouzel’s first career was in nursing: she was an army nurse during World War II, and only began taking formal art classes in the early 1960s. In 1972, at the age of 50, she graduated from CSU Long Beach with a Masters of Art Degree. Kouzel fell in love with jazz music during her time in New York in the 40s and 50s; inspired by the “spontaneous, inventive and improvisational” nature of the music, she would often sketch while at concerts even late into her career. Kouzel was also influenced by feminism, human relationships, the movement of the human body, ancient societies, and the environment, and worked in a variety of media, including painting, drawing, mixed media, woodwork, and bronze. Along with her contemporaries Martha Bartholomew, Marjorie Kerr, Fay, Colmar, and Virginia Spencer, Kouzel was also a founding member of the “Bloody Marys,” a feminist artist collective based in Fullerton, CA.

AUCTION HOUSE AS AGENT Except as otherwise stated, John Moran Auctioneers Moran's) acts as agent for the seller. The contract for the sale of the property is therefore made between the seller and the buyer. BEFORE THE AUCTION (a) Public Preview: All property is available for inspection by public preview during the day of auction. In many cases, particular lots can be examined in advance by private appointment. Prospective buyers are strongly encouraged to personally examine any property in which they are interested. (b) Buyer's Responsibility: Buyers are responsible for determining to their own satisfaction the true nature and condition of any lot prior to bidding. Though buyers are not legally required to inspect lots prior to purchase, failure to do so may constitute a waiver of complaint that an item was not delivered in a condition equal to the existent condition at the auction. (c) Property Sold 'As Is': Neither Moran's nor the seller provides any guarantee in relation to the nature of the property, or to any errors or omissions in the catalogue or supplemental material apart from the Limited Warranty stated below. Condition reports are offered as a courtesy and are typically published in Moran's catalogue or can be made available upon request. The absence of a condition report does not imply than an item is free from defects or restoration, nor does a reference to particular defects imply the absence of others. AT THE AUCTION (a) Admission: The auction is open to the public, though Moran's reserves the right to refuse admission or participation to anyone at any time. The auctioneer may be recorded (visually, aurally or otherwise) and all participants consent to such recording. (b) Buyer Registration: Prospective buyers must register with Moran's before bidding. Moran's may require identification and financial references in advance of buyer eligibility. Registered bidders accept personal liability to pay the purchase price, including the buyer's premium plus all applicable charges, unless Moran's agrees in advance that the bidder is acting as agent on behalf of an identified third party acceptable to Moran's. In such case, Moran's will look to the third party for payment. (c) Bidding Guidelines: Bidding, whether in person, by agent, absentee bid, telephone, or internet, constitutes a bidder's acceptance of these conditions. The highest bidder acknowledged by the auctioneer shall be the buyer. The auctioneer retains the absolute right to reject any bid, to withdraw, pass or divide any lots, to combine multiple lots, to advance the bidding at his or her absolute discretion and (in the case of error or dispute, whether during or after the sale) to determine the successful bidder, to continue the bidding, cancel the sale or to re-offer and sell the lot in question. Under no circumstances are the consignors' or agents acting on their behalf, permitted to bid on their consignment. In the event of any dispute after the auction Moran's sale record shall be conclusive. (d) Absentee, Telephone and Internet Bidding: Moran's offers absentee, telephone and internet bidding as a convenience to clients and does not accept liability for errors or failures to execute such bids. Absentee and telephone bids must be recognized by Moran's prior to auction day. When identical absentee bids are submitted that become the highest bids at the auction, the bid first received by Moran's shall be accepted as the winning bid. Telephone bidders are encouraged to leave minimum bids in case of technical failure. (e) Reserves: Unless indicated otherwise, lots may be offered subject to a reserve, which is the confidential minimum price below which the lot will not be sold. The reserve for any lot shall not exceed its published estimate. Moran's shall act to protect the reserve by bidding through the auctioneer, who may open bidding on any lot below the reserve by placing a bid on the seller's behalf. The auctioneer may continue to bid on behalf of the seller up to the reserve amount, either by placing consecutive bids or by placing bids in response to other bidders. Lots without reserves are typically opened for bidding at 50% of their low estimate. In the absence of a bid at that level, the auctioneer may proceed backwards at his discretion or deem the lot unsold if a bid is not recognized. AFTER THE AUCTION (a) Payment and Title Transfer: The buyer agrees to pay the sum of the hammer price plus Buyer's Premium, plus any applicable sales tax. Buyer's Premium is calculated as follows: 25% on the first $500,000 of the hammer price, plus 18% on any amount between $500,000 $1,000,000, and 15% on any amount above $1,000,000 when paying by cash, check or wire transfer. Credit card payments will be subject to an additional 2% buyer's premium. Buyers outside the United States must submit payment via wire transfer. Credit cards are not an accepted form of payment for buyers outside the United States. Buyers are strongly encouraged to provide full payment at the auction. Payment must be received by Moran's within five business days immediately following the auction. The buyer shall not acquire title or take possession of the lot until all amounts (including the hammer price, premium and applicable taxes) due to Moran's have been paid in full. (b) Collection: Buyers are strongly encouraged to collect purchased items from the sale site at the time of the auction. Packing material and labor are provided free of charge at the sale site during the auction. Packing and handling of purchased lot is undertaken by Moran's solely as a convenience to customers. Moran's is not liable for damage to property, regardless of cause, in connection with this courtesy service (c) Storage: Following the auction, uncollected lots shall be relocated to and stored in Moran's warehouse. Moran's shall retain possession of all purchases until full payment has been received from the buyer. Lots remaining uncollected after the fifth business day following the sale, regardless of payment status, are subject to a per-lot daily storage charge of $10.00. In addition to other remedies available by law, Moran's reserves the right to impose upon delinquent buyers a separate 1% monthly charge (of the purchase price, or the maximum permitted by law) commencing on the sixth business day after the sale date. (d) Shipping: Buyers are responsible for arranging their own shipping estimates and deliveries. Moran's in our discretion and as a courtesy to buyers, can arrange to have purchased lots packed, insured and forwarded by a third party shipper at the request, expense and risk of the buyer. Moran's assumes no responsibility for acts or omissions in such packing or shipping by other packers or carriers, even if recommended by Moran's. Nor does Moran's assume any responsibility for any damage to picture frames or to the glass therein. In circumstances where Moran's arranges for such third party services, Moran's may apply an administration charge of 15% of that service fee. (e) All Sales Final: Notwithstanding other terms mentioned herein, refunds shall be given at Moran's sole discretion. Refunds requested on the grounds of authenticity must be made within 10 days of the auction and accompanied by a supporting written statement from a recognized authority (defined as a person who has authored, edited, or substantially contributed to a monograph on the artist, a person who has curated, organized or substantially contributed to a solo exhibition on the artist, a person who has represented the artist's estate or someone who represented or worked closely with the artist while they were alive and, in any of the above instances physically handled works of the period, medium and subject matter in question during the course of their duties) stating that the object sold is incorrect or not the work of the artist. Dealers, appraisers and representatives of other auction firms do not qualify as authenticators of individual artists unless they have had such specific involvement with that artist's work, as specified above, in addition to their daily duties. Refunded lots must be returned to Moran's in the same condition as when sold. Moran's does not grant extensions to refund considerations based upon authenticity due to shipping delays. There are no exceptions to this refund policy. LIABILITY AND LIMITED WARRANTY (a) Liability: The buyer expressly agrees that (i) neither Moran's nor the seller shall be liable, in whole or in part, for any special, indirect or consequential damages, including, without limitation, loss of profits and (ii) the buyer's damages, if any, are limited exclusively to the original purchase

price paid for the lot. (b) Limited Warranty: All property is sold as is. Neither Moran's nor the consignor or our associates make any representation, express or implied warranty (including merchantability and fitness) or guarantee in condition, age, size, provenance, medium, signature, inscription, exhibition history, importance, rarity, country of origin, genuineness, historical relevance, monetary or other value, framing or lack thereof, mounting, conservation, coloring, palette, inscription, edition, style, label or other descriptor. No statement in the catalogue, brochures, website, bill of sale or invoice, any supplementary material, or statements by any Moran's employee shall be deemed such a warranty or representation or an assumption of liability. (c) Descriptions: No warranty, whether express or implied, is made with respect to any description contained in this auction or any second opinion. Any description of the items or second opinion is for the courtesy of identifying the items for those Bidders who do not have the opportunity to view the lots in person, and no description of items has been made part of the basis of the transaction or has created any express warranty that the goods would conform to any description made by the Auctioneer. Color variations can be expected in any electronic or printed imaging, and are not grounds for the return of any lot. (d) Estimates: All estimates provided are carefully considered opinions of Moran's specialists, and are merely suggested guidelines for interested buyers. Buyers must be aware that all property sold is subject to fluctuating values depending on the subjective interests of collectors and a wide variety of other uncontrollable factors. The lots auctioned may sell at prices above, within, or below estimate. (e) Notices, Demands and Refunds: Any demands for refunds, problems with the lot(s) sold or notices of any kind concerning the auction shall be in writing and addressed to John Moran Auctioneers, Inc, 145 East Walnut Avenue, Monrovia, CA 91016. ADDITIONAL MATTERS (a) Copyright: The copyright on all images, illustrations and written material produced by or for Moran's for this auction is and shall remain at all times the property of Moran's. Moran's and the seller make no representation or warranty that the buyer will acquire any copyright or reproduction rights to a purchased lot. (b) Buyer's Breach of Conditions: If a buyer fails to comply with any of these conditions, Moran's may, in addition to asserting all remedies available by law, including the right to hold that buyer liable for the purchase price, (i) cancel the sale, retaining as liquidated damages any payment made by the buyer, (ii) resell the property without reserve at public auction or privately upon notice to the buyer, or (iii) take such other action as we deem necessary or appropriate. If Moran's resells the property, the original defaulting buyer shall be liable for the payment of any deficiency between the original sale price and any subsequent mitigation sale, including warehousing, the expenses of both sales, reasonable attorney's fees, commissions, incidental damages and all other charges due hereunder. In the event that such buyer pays a portion of the purchase price for any property, Moran's shall apply the payment received to such property that Moran's in our sole discretion, deems appropriate. Moran's shall have the benefit of all rights of a secured party under the Uniform Commercial Code adopted in the State of California. (c) Severability: Should any of these conditions be deemed unenforceable, invalid or illegal in any court having jurisdiction, that part shall be discounted and shall have no effect on the enforceability of the remaining provisions contained herein, which shall remain valid to the fullest extent permitted by law. (d) Jurisdiction: The rights and obligations of the parties with respect to these conditions and the conduct of the auction shall be governed and interpreted by the laws of the State of California. By bidding, whether in person or by agent, by absentee bid, telephone, internet or other means, the buyer shall be deemed to have consented to the exclusive jurisdiction of the courts of the state of California or, if applicable, the federal courts sitting in this state. Further, the buyer agrees that the venue for any action arising out of the failure to abide by these conditions, or any conduct related to or arising out of the auction, shall be the Los Angeles Superior Court, Pasadena Branch located at 300 E. Walnut Street, Pasadena, California 91101 or the Federal Court Central District located at 312 North Spring Street, Los Angeles, California, 90012-4793.
