AUCTION

Sunday, May 19, 2013 12 p.m. (PST)

16145 Hart Street Van Nuys, CA 91406


Let the Market Decide. After twenty years as an auctioneer, I have come to distill the basic

success of an auction down to these three simple rules: Know the Material, Know the Sellers, and Know the Buyers. Armed with these three principles one can develop a successful auction in any field; however, this year, I’m adding a fourth rule: Be Public. Or in other words, be transparent. Public auction records show more than just record high prices, they also build the very foundation of market value and consumer confidence. Auction houses large and small have been reporting an explosion of "private treaty" sales this year, so much so that many regularly scheduled auctions are beginning to look weak and picked over. The private treaty phenomenon is happening because exceptional works are easy to sell quickly and the revenue is instant; however, the long-term effect is an absence of feedback that the market needs to be stable. Savvy buyers are surely beginning to notice. While I will expound more on this later in our blog (lamodern.com/blog), I will say here that we feel it is critically important to assure the marketplace that we are offering the best works available here in these pages. For example, it would have been easy to find a buyer for the Vija Celmins painting (illustrated on the cover) with just a few phone calls; however, an important work such as this deserves to set a market level and will, by virtue of public sale, act as a bellwether for this artist’s work. Conversely, an undisclosed private sale would not give the market any information of which to gauge the currency or commodity of comparable work. In this sale we have several highlights that illustrate our commitment to bringing the finest examples of art and design to public sale. The aforementioned Celmins painting is not alone. There is also an extremely important painting by Billy Al Bengston, the first of his iconic "Dracula" works. This piece has all the hallmarks of historical import: it was shown at the legendary Ferus Gallery, the equally legendary Betty Asher acquired it, and it has exceptional exhibition history. Another grouping of works by Karl Benjamin shows the incredible range of this late local hero. From complex early works of the mid-1950s to the deceptively simple minimalist composition from 1965, each of these Benjamin paintings exemplifies one of California's first original modern art movements. Design, too, is represented with impressive offerings. Once again, we have a selection of rare Serge Mouille designs from an important continental collection, including a sublime ceiling lamp that was executed in 1960 for the Dior commission in Paris. The 1957 desk by Richard Artschwager beautifully bridges the gap between art and furniture in a way that surely forged a path for today's contemporary designers and artists that see no distinction between sculpture and function. In addition, the auction includes a collection of rare ceramics by Gio Ponti with the highlight being the Gli Amanti plate from 1925 manufactured by Richard-Ginori. Our Studio Craft offerings also do not disappoint with fine early examples from a quintet of inventive California ceramicists such as Glen Lukens, Peter Voulkos, Robert Arneson, David Gilhooly, and Ken Price. Additionally, works by George Nakashima, Sam Maloof, Paul Evans, and Dale Chihuly round out a uniquely American school of art. For better or for worse, let these pieces give us all a collective base for value. Compare these works to others you have seen and make your own judgments as to how much they may be worth. This is the real market at work. PETER LOUGHREY, DIRECTOR

Davidson (1889-1977) was instrumental in transforming the Los Angeles landscape through his mid-century houses that employed expansive yet sensible floor plans. A German émigré who traveled throughout Europe before arriving in Los Angeles, Davidson received little formal education in architecture. The rest of his knowledge was experiential, gained from apprenticeships in Berlin, London, and Paris. After many successful years in Berlin designing lighting and interiors, Davidson and his wife Greta moved to Los Angeles in 1924, just like his friends and future collaborators Richard Neutra and K.E.M. Weber. In addition to designing interiors, he ushered in a modern sensibility through commissions for building facades, as well as hotel and home remodels. As Davidson’s reputation for practical storage solutions and innovative designs grew, he earned commissions to design Los Angeles-area residences. In 1945, John Entenza, editor of Arts & Architecture asked Davidson to design the first Case Study House; he also designed Case Study Houses #11 (1946) and #15 (1947). While the plans for Case Study House #1 were being finalized, Davidson designed two houses on adjoining lots in the Pacific Palisades. The Kingsley family purchased land on an old lemon grove – with many of the trees intact – that sloped downward facing the ocean. The “houses without halls” incorporated wide-open rooms encased by thin walls and large sliding glass doors that opened onto raised terraces. Much of Davidson’s custom-designed furniture adorned the interior of the Kingsley houses, including a dining suite, coffee table, and wall

light. Davidson realized a distinctly California modern space he described as having masculine exteriors and feminine interiors. Architectural historian Esther McCoy agreed, extending his analysis, “But also feminine was the proximity into which he brought people, the tight warm areas with cool intervals between.” The Kingsleys were so enamored with the final realization of the project that they recalled Davidson to their home between 1958 and 1962 in order to make structural changes and updates to the interior.

MAX WEBER A leader of avant-garde art in the first half of the 20th century, Max Weber (1881-1961) worked in various mediums, but achieved acclaim through his expressionistic paintings of still lifes, nudes, and Jewish subjects. Raised in a strict Orthodox Jewish family who recently emigrated from Russia to Brooklyn, Weber showed an early interest in art, but showing his drawings at home was forbidden. His parents forced him to enter the Normal course at the Pratt Institute where he studied art theory in preparation for becoming a teacher. After a few years of teaching in Virginia and Minnesota, Weber took an extended vacation in Paris and the rest of mainland Europe. There he studied drawing and painting at various French art institutions, a study tour that culminated in a course taught by Henri Matisse where he became friendly with his classmates Gertrude and Leo Stein. Revitalized and ready to assume the life of an artist, Weber returned to New York in 1909. He exhibited his paintings from his time in Europe at Alfred Stieglitz’ Little Galleries of the Photo-Secession. During this time, Weber’s paintings became distinctly modern, and he “became concerned with

formal distortions as a means of activating pictorial space.” By the beginning of the 1920s, critics acclaimed Weber as the most important American modern painter of his time, and in 1930, the first major retrospective of his career was held at the Museum of Modern Art, New York. While Weber played with various genres and mediums throughout his career, he frequently returned to painting still lifes, landscapes, and nudes. During the 1940s, Weber “began to manipulate space in a more challenging fashion than he had done in two decades,” and the resulting paintings breathed with emotional fluidity. Untitled (Bathers) from 1942 renders the human subjects indecipherable, yet rich, sweeping lines “suggest an emotional and intellectual state.” Likewise in Flowers Still Life (c. 1942), Weber abstracts the flowers with bold color that fades into a muted background. Towards the end of his accomplished career that explored every corner of American modernism, he was honored with three major retrospectives at the Whitney Museum of American Art in 1949, the Jewish Museum in 1956, and the Newark Museum in 1959.

VIJA CELMINS Southern California is the birthplace for some of the most important contemporary art of the 20th century. A contemporary artist such as Vija Celmins (b. 1938) is greatly admired throughout the world, but many forget that she had her start in Venice, California. Though before she arrived in America, Celmins and her family fled their hometown of Riga, Latvia to escape the imminent Soviet occupation of 1944. After a brief stay at a United Nations refugee camp in Germany, they eventually found solace in Indianapolis, Indiana in 1948. As a 16-year-old art student, she traveled to New York City where she encountered paintings by de Kooning and other Abstract Expressionists. Her infatuation with Action Painting was short-lived however, and upon graduating the John Heron Art Institute, she moved to Los Angeles in 1962 to begin her MFA at the University of California, Los Angeles. According to Department Head and Curator of Contemporary Art at LACMA, Franklin Sirmans, “… it was between 1964 and 1966, before [Celmins] was thirty years old, that she created some of her most important pieces.” “…When I came to L.A., I thought it was a new beginning,” recalls Celmins. From her studio at 701 Venice Blvd., she purged herself of what she knew – Abstract Expressionism, specifically the influences of Gorky and de Kooning – in hopes of finding her own artistic voice. Referring to the intense strokes employed in Action Painting, Celmins remembers, “I couldn’t resolve the stroke-making with the essential stillness of the painting.” In 1964, Celmins chose to venture into a minimal, almost primitive style, painting still lifes of common objects in her studio: a space heater, a fan, a lamp, eggs on a hot plate, cups, spoons, and forks. Painting these everyday objects, cloaked in muted grays, served as a way for Celmins to stop thinking and inventing; this was a period for her to revitalize her work and while doing so, she ultimately broke through to create a form of art that was

entirely her own. Celmins describes the transition of her work in 1964 in an interview with Chuck Close: “I decided to go back to looking at something outside of myself. I was going back to what I thought was this basic, stupid painting. You know: there’s the surface, there’s me, there’s my hand. There’s my eye, I paint. I don’t embellish anymore, I don’t compose, and I don’t jazz up the colour.” This brief period in Celmins’ early years in Los Angeles served as a breakthrough, the catalyst for the next phase, yet only a handful of her object paintings still exist. The objects in Untitled (Knife and Dish) (1964) rest alone in a vacuum, “relegated to a purgatorial no-man’s land” that suggest action without a table on which to rest or food to cut. Out of this stillness the viewer feels the tension of inaction, the heavy breathing of stasis, and the objects come to represent some unknown force from what lies ahead. In 1965, Celmins’ thesis show marked a pivotal point in her career, replacing the common, everyday objects from her studio with surreal, radical imagery, commenting on current and historical disaster. The cups, forks, and space heater were replaced with a rhinoceros, a smoking gun, and a World War II fighter plane. Her thesis show and first solo show at David Stuart Galleries propelled Celmins’ career and ultimately launched her to produce some of the most influential contemporary art of our time. Similar examples of Celmins’ object paintings from the same year remain in permanent museum collections, including Heater (1964) at the Whitney Museum of American Art, Gun with Hand #1 (1964) at the Museum of Modern Art, New York, and Eggs (1964) at the Museum of Contemporary Art, San Diego.

MARK TANSEY Since he began painting in the early 1970s, Mark Tansey (b. 1949) has earned a reputation as a “painter-historian” who explores the outermost boundaries of reproduction and Postmodernism. In addition to his own detailed strokes, he juxtaposes images and words from magazines, books, and critical essays from multiple eras and movements to produce “pictorial rhetoric.” Like Richard Pettibone, Tansey surveys and reproduces his historical influences – Jasper Johns, Frank Stella, Marcel Duchamp – and shrouds them in playful alterations for the viewer to uncover. Tansey’s sphere of influence, however, is not only more literary, but also more extensive. Both of Tansey’s parents taught art history, and his mother was also an accomplished slide librarian who developed one of the first computerized slide archives. Tansey was exposed to the art history canon from an early age, which led him to classes at the San Francisco Art Institute and the museums in the Bay Area. Deciding to become a representational artist, Tansey studied under the painters Lorser Feitelson, Llyn Foulkes, and Larry Dreiband at the Art Center College of Design in Los Angeles from 1969-1972. It was here that he became interested in appropriation, laying the foundation for his representational works. With precision and detail similar to Mike Bidlo reproducing a Pollock, Tansey reaches back to Impressionism to reproduce Renoir’s most famous painting. Tansey once said, “I think of the painted image as summarizing the problem we face when confronted with reality. Which reality? The reality of the flat image, or the multi-dimensional reality that exists between the viewer and the artist?” In Renoir (Luncheon of the Boating Party) (c. 1970-71) Tansey moves beyond scholarship to action in an attempt to understand this relationship.

BILLY AL BENGSTON & KEN PRICE Preceding his depictions as Los Angeles’ own motorcycle-racing, rogue artist in Ferus Gallery and LACMA exhibition catalogues, Kansas-born Billy Al Bengston (b. 1934) had been discharged from the California College of Arts and Crafts in 1955. Under the faculty of Richard Diebenkorn, Billy’s training was curtailed due to his aggressive advancement in ceramics and more so, rapid depletion of the school’s clay reserve. By 1956 Bengston had enrolled at Otis Art Institute to study under master ceramicist, Peter Voulkos. The roster of students under Voulkos’ training in 1956 also included Billy’s friend and fellow surfer, artist Ken Price, whom he had met surfing on the job as a beach attendant in 1953. True to his boisterous character, Bengston terminated his studies prematurely. Despite this, the artist cites both Voulkos and previous teacher Richard Diebenkorn as “showing me how I might physically approach painting…” Bengston and Price moved into a studio with beach access in Venice, California in 1960. During this period, Bengston stopped making ceramics and took up painting. He experimented with color, surface texture, and simple symbols after he had encountered Jasper Johns’ target paintings at the Venice Biennale in 1958. The use of the iris leitmotif in Bengston’s work first occurred with the oil painting Count Dracula at the Chessboard (1960). The title was concieved after Price noted that the central form mimicked that of the transformational shape of Count Dracula from vampire to bat. The hues of color, rendered on canvas in golden and ochre yellows, interact in their variations and glimmer throughout. The beautifully impastoed surface of paint carefully raised around the sharp image of the iris at the center suggests his training as a ceramicist and as a technically advanced master in the exploration of color and form. Bengston aborted the iris motif to explore other symbols such as chevron stripes and would not revisit the iris again until the 1970s. Los Angeles native Ken Price (1935-2012) shared many affinities with his studio mate. Both were quickly hoisted by art critics as colorful beacons of Los Angeles’ emerging young artists

scene. In 1970 Price retreated to Taos, New Mexico to work on the Happy’s Curios Series, which consumed him for more than five years. A self-funded project that he had fantasized about executing since his surf trips to Baja, California with Bengston and Larry Bell, Price discussed the impetus behind the project: “We always made a special point of hitting the curio stores in TJ [Tijuana] because they had great pottery…the makers considered themselves to be operating factories…they weren’t aware of themselves as artists… I got turned on and thought I would make a tribute to Mexican pottery in the form of a curios store.” Throughout the mid-1970s, Pr ice would create hand-painted ceramic wares, in addition to a handful of brilliantly colorful weavings conceived from his interpretations of themes culled from Mexican craft decorations to be sold in his curio shop. After years of trials, and ultimately, financial exhaustion, Price retired from the idea of setting up shop. These two wall hangings from the Happy’s Curios Series (1975) exhibited at his monumental second solo LACMA show demonstrate the artist’s fascination with vivid color palettes. Woven by Zapotec Indians of Teotitlán del Valle, Oaxaca, based on the artist’s drawings, the tapestries are a magnificent display of Ken Price’s capacity to explore other mediums and processes in a period of polychromatic triumph.

RAIMONDS STAPRANS Originally from Latvia, Raimonds Staprans (b. 1926) creates paintings that unite the warm still lifes of the Bay Area Figurative Movement with the expressive capabilities of Color Field painting. Like many 20th century painters, Staprans experienced external turmoil early in his life that eventually informed his artistic sensibilities. Soviet tanks arrived in Latvia, forcing Staprans and his family to immigrate to the Pacific Northwest in 1940. “I decided to become a painter – [the invasion] also ended my innocence and forced me to become aware of aggression, injustice, and cruelty. Thus, in an oblique way, I owe my career as an artist to the misfortunes that befell us during that time.” After studying under Mark Tobey at the University of Washington, Staprans moved to the Bay Area to pursue his graduate studies. While his work shares many similarities with his Bay Area contemporaries Richard Diebenkorn, Paul Wonner, and Richard Park, Staprans focused on still lifes and distorted landscapes with color and light at the forefront. In Red Sky (1968) and Landscape (1972-78), color shards compete for space, yet reveal an expansive and dense spatiality. The subject matter is reminiscent of works by Richard Diebenkorn and Wayne Thiebaud, though according to poet and curator John Yau, Staprans' work achieves a distinct “emotional tenor” unlike Diebenkorn’s: “His landscapes are like tectonic plates. One senses that their alignment is precarious, and that everything could shift suddenly and violently in the blink of an eye.” Staprans’ work is held in the permanent collections of the Los Angeles County Museum of Art and the Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco, and a career retrospective was exhibited at the Pasadena Museum of California Art in 2006.

GIO PONTI One of the most remarkable designers and architects of the 20th century, Gio Ponti (1891-1979) strived to enhance every aspect of our environment, from buildings, furniture, and ceramics, to glass, silverware, and industrial products. Among his architectural marvels, the Pirelli Tower in Milan (1956) and the Denver Art Museum (1971) rank as two of his most famous constructions. While his architecture reached an unparalleled level of artistic achievement, he was equally adept in any medium, and his work ethic matched his prowess. When he was well into his 70s, Ponti worked an average of twenty hours per day, adhering to his principle, “Think at night and work during the day.” In the forward to the double issue of Design Quarterly dedicated to Ponti, Charles Eames described the tireless innovator’s genius: “In this process of design or growth, where he anticipates and relives the experience that others will have – in this enthusiasm – he surely thinks of all people as rich human beings possessing those same capabilities and sensitiveness to experience that are his own. This is the only way – and this is the secret.” This secret of Ponti the artist-philosopher, in any project and medium, guided him in the achievement of form, beauty, and function. Gio Ponti was an architect who began with ceramics. One of his many design maxims applies here: “In each different thing, there is always the same process and the same hand.” At the age of 32 and just two years after he graduated from the Politecnico di Milano, Ponti was hired as the artistic director at the Societa Ceramica Richard-Ginori where he was given free reign to revamp the entire design process. He articulated his design acumen in every aspect of the operation, from designing the ceramics to directing photography and marketing the final product. The beautifully crafted result, the Richard-Ginori

catalogue, presented photographs of the entire inventory – some even in color – that the company could display at exhibitions and trade shows, events that Ponti was also instrumental in organizing. This multi-faceted and modern design approach precluded the marketing practices that would become standard in the second half of the century. Ponti’s Gli Amanti (1925) was most likely included in the Exposition Universelle in Paris where Ponti received the Grand Prix from an international jury for a Richard-Ginori stand. Two years later, Ponti’s name appears in the exhibition literature at the Monza Biennale, marking the beginning of the Gio Ponti brand. The porcelain plate, l’Amore della Antichita was produced in 1928; however, it carries two Ponti signatures from 1927 to commemorate his success at Monza. A contemporary account of the 1927 exhibition describes the porcelain on display: “They have a unity of style, and stand out among thousands, and have risen to the level of the best and most celebrated manufacturers of art ceramics in Europe.” Ponti continued producing the Richard-Ginori catalogue until 1930, using the publication as a springboard for the release of the first issue of his highly influential architecture magazine Domus in 1928. Ponti employed this passionate, streamlined approach – one that considered each multilayered aspect and possible outcome – for every project, from magazine layouts and furniture design to industrial products and massive skyscrapers. He worked from the ground upwards to examine life improved because ultimately, according to Charles Eames, he “practiced architecture in all his work.” Eames, Charles. Foreward.

This model was exhibited at the Paris Exposition, 1925, where Gio Ponti was awarded the Grand Prix for his neoclassical designs for Richard-Ginori. The nature and number of marks on this example together with the signature of Gio Ponti, dated 1925, indicate the strong possibity that this particular example was made to be shown at the Paris Exposition. The Made in Italy mark on this piece - which is highly unusual on porcelain models further supports this theory. An internal Richard-Ginori memorandum stated, "The head office wrote that the pieces for Paris must be marked as Made in Italy or better, in my opinion, Fabbricato in Italia. Please add this writing to our markings in a clear and correct way" (Letter, June 4th, 1925).

266 GIO PONTI L’AMORE DELLA ANTICHITA PLATE Richard-Ginori, designed 1923, executed 1928 Transfer printed porcelain Retains facsimile signature “Gio Ponti 1927” twice, “Richard-Ginori Pittoria di Doccia 1925”, “Richard * Ginori 28=1”, “Made in Italy” and “l’Amore della Antichita 1923” LAMA would like to thank Oliva Rucellai at the Museo Richard-Ginori, Florence, for her assistance in the cataloging of this work 1” x 13.25” diameter The nature and unusual number of manufacturer's marks may allude to the possibility that this plate was made for the purposes of exhibition. The date stamp for January 1928 may indicate that the plate was exhibited at the Quadriennale, Pesaro and Fiera Campionaria, Milan, 1928. The presence of the two Gio Ponti signatures dated to the year previous, 1927, may have been created in honor of Ponti's success at the Biennale in Monza that same year. The existence of two Gio Ponti signatures for 1927 is unusual. Loris Manna states, "They are rarely present, often preceded and followed by small arrows, and always single, whereas for porcelain, mostly for those dated 1925, they can be double, so as to witness both the execution and planning of the decor" (Manna 14).

RICHARD ARTSCHWAGER Richard Artschwager (1923-2013) straddled many genres of art throughout his career, from Pop to Minimalism to NeoMinimalism. This mercurial nature is partly due to his choice of materials: Artschwager has worked with a diverse array, including wood, paint, photographs, Formica, and metal. This versatility propelled him to international success throughout the second half of the 20th century, culminating in retrospectives in 1988 and 2012 at the Whitney Museum of American Art. In his most famous sculptures, including Table and Chair (1962-3) and Table with Pink Tablecloth (1964), Artschwager employed furniture-making techniques to “produce sculptures that mimicked actual objects while simultaneously betraying their identity as artistic illusions.” He learned these skills about a decade before his furniture was intended as fine art. To support his family, Artschwager worked as a furniture maker, and then opened his own workshop in the

early 1950s. His simple, well-constructed furniture was not only commercially successful, but also critically acclaimed. Built in 1957, this American walnut desk – along with a swivel chair and shelves – was exhibited in “Furniture by Craftsmen” at the Museum of Contemporary Crafts, New York, just one year before his workshop and all of his materials were consumed in a fire. He continued receiving furniture commissions throughout the 50s and early 60s, but 1958 marked the moment when Artschwager left a successful furniture practice and turned definitively to art.

MORRIS GRAVES A member of the Northwest School that included the painters Guy Anderson, Kenneth Callahan, and Mark Tobey, Morris Graves (1910-2001) was an eccentric painter who channeled the lingering, dusky light of the Pacific Northwest. In his teenage years, Graves found a job on an American Mail Line ship headed to Asia, which included stops in China, Manila, and Japan. This marked the beginning of a lifelong fascination with the religion, aesthetics, and even art-making materials from the East. Upon his return, he began his painting career and quickly achieved success by winning the Seattle Museum of Art’s Northwest Annual Exhibition in 1933. The winning painting, Moor Swan, “a symbolic self-portrait, depicting the regal, aloof black swan smoldering in a dusky field,” was purchased for the museum’s permanent collection. Throughout his career, the subject matter of his immediate surroundings – the Northwest landscape, Pacific Ocean, and animals, particularly birds – remained as constant as his life of solitude. In Seattle in 1940, Graves met architect and furniture designer George Nakashima. They spoke of their shared belief that “form should grow from the natural properties of materials.” This friendship likely inspired Graves to build a house on twenty acres of land he bought for $40 on Fidalgo Island just north of Seattle. Secluded and submissive to the Northwest climate, Graves took midnight strolls around the island and painted until sunrise. Oriental Vessel with Candle (c. 1940) portrays this solitude with a single glowing candle amongst greens and blues steeped in warmth, representative of Graves’ lifelong adherence to self-determination. In 1942, Graves was included in the exhibition “18 Americans from 9

States” at the Museum of Modern Art in New York, where all 19 of his paintings sold, two of which remain in the permanent collection. The success of the MoMA show encouraged Graves to apply for a Guggenheim Fellowship, which he received in 1946. With the original intention to study in Japan, he ended up in Hawaii, inspired by the Oriental objects he found at the Honolulu Academy of Art to create the Chinese Ritual Bronze paintings. In Conflict Battling Crane Heads with Chinese Ceremonial Bronze (1947), Graves depicts birds at each other’s necks imagined as a ceremonial vessel, representative of the artist’s inner conflict and inability to finish his voyage to Japan. After many fruitful years of painting, with highlights including the Life magazine article “Mystic Painters of the Northwest” that celebrated Graves as the most important painter of the bunch, as well as a long-awaited return to Japan, Graves moved to the Dublin countryside in 1958. He dedicated his time to restoring his Irish manor and painting, yet he destroyed much of his work from this period when he left in 1964. In Glass with Flower from 1961, a solitary flower sitting in a chalice bathes in the same intermediate light reminiscent of the Washington sunset. Through all of his work, Graves is both inextricably connected with his surroundings and deeply concerned with the nature of human and spiritual consciousness. In this way, according to Los Angeles painter and writer Frederick S. Wight, “He speaks to the imagination. He is needed to connect two worlds, that of his painting and that of the daily existence to which his painting relates.” Wight, Frederick S. “Morris Graves.” Morris Graves: Retrospective.

DIMITRI HADZI Internationally recognized American sculptor Dimitri Hadzi (1921-2006) created modern bronze sculptures that evoke classical subjects through a careful interplay of abstract forms and open space. Raised in Brooklyn, New York, Hadzi studied art at Cooper Union and earned a Fulbright Scholarship to study in Greece upon graduating in 1950. He was immediately impressed with the ancient sculpture he could only encounter in museums as a child, “I was stunned. Very great invention was involved, and what was powerful to me was their interaction with the architecture of the Parthenon.” Preferring to learn from the masters of classical antiquity to “do something as new as possible,” Hadzi moved to Rome and didn’t return to the United States until the mid-1970s. As the American representative to the Venice Biennales of 1956, 1958, and 1962, he was at the forefront of European Modernism. Museums such as the Guggenheim, the Museum of Modern Art, New York, and the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden purchased his work for their permanent collections. Thera II (1967-68) stands “like a ceremonial object placed on a tripod,” achieving a balance of vertical columns and bulbous masses. The sculpture is reminiscent of some of his major commissions such as K. 458 The Hunt (1966) in Avery Hall at the Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts in New York and Thermopylae (1969) on the plaza of the Walter Gropius designed John F. Kennedy Office Building Fox, Margalit. “Dimitri Hadzi, 85, Sculptor and Art Professor, Is Dead.” NYTimes. com. New York Times, 1 May 2006. Web. 30 Mar 2013.

Conditions of Sale/Notice to Buyers The following are our “Conditions of Sale” for the items listed in this catalogue to be sold by Modern Auctions, Inc. (L.A. Modern Auctions or “LAMA”). We are acting as an agent on behalf of our consignors.

PAYMENT All sales are final. All sold lots are to be paid for on the day of the sale. We accept cash, bank wire transfers, checks, and Mastercard and Visa (PLEASE NOTE: Credit card payments are accepted only when presented in person and will not be accepted over the phone, fax, or e-mail). All payments made by personal checks will be subject to clearance before purchases can be collected. Buyers who have not purchased from Modern Auctions, Inc. (Los Angeles Modern Auctions) previously are asked to provide a method of payment and/or letter of reference from a bank or creditor prior to the auction. Bank wire information is available upon request, please phone (323) 904-1950. If payment is not received by May 29th, collection and storage fees will begin incurring immediately.

BUYER’S PREMIUM A buyer’s premium of 25% will be added to the hammer price on all property sold if bids are placed directly with Modern Auctions, Inc. This buyer’s premium can be discounted to 22.5% if payment by cash, check, or bank wire is received by May 29th. The buyer’s premium will not be discounted for internet bidding (27.5%) or payment by credit card or if full payment is not received by May 29th, 2013. (PLEASE NOTE: Credit card payments are accepted only when presented in person and will not be accepted over the phone, fax, or e-mail).

CALIFORNIA SALES TAX Sales tax of 9% will be collected on all purchases removed from our premises or delivered within the state of California. Those holding a valid California State Resale License must register before each sale and present their valid resale number. No purchases will be released until all sales tax requirements are satisfied.

ESTIMATES & RESERVES The estimates printed after each lot should be used as a guide only and should not be relied upon as a prediction of final selling prices. Many of the lots offered for sale carry a reserve and are confidential. The reserve is a minimum price at which the seller has agreed to let the auctioneer sell the property.

Absentee/Phone bids are on a first-come, first-served basis; thus, we encourage you to submit your form ASAP. If identical absentee bids are submitted, the earliest received will take precedence. The number of phone lines available are limited so please submit your phone requests early. On all absentee/phone bid forms, please leave a valid credit card number with expiration date; a deposit of 25% may be required for all absentee and phone bids. Please note that we only accept credit card payments in person. For those absentee/phone bidders who can not come in personally to pay, we will only accept either a certified check or wire transfer as a method of payment (see “Payment” notice). The party responsible for submitting the absentee or phone bid is solely responsible for the payment in full of the total invoice. We will not make any changes to an invoice. Should a dispute arise after the sale, our sale records are conclusive. We are not responsible for failure to execute a bid and have the right to reject any bid. We reserve the right to withdraw any property before the sale and shall have no liability whatsoever for such withdrawal. Should an item be withdrawn, the auctioneer will make an announcement at the time the lot would have been put up for sale. In addition, the auctioneer may add lots not previously listed in the catalogue or addendum. If the buyer does not comply with all of the notices to buyers, Modern Auctions, Inc., reserves the right to cancel the sale, hold the defaulting buyer liable for the purchase price and buyer’s premium, retain any deposit, and resell the property privately or at auction without further notice. In the latter, the defaulting buyer will be held responsible for all incurred expenses, such as warehouse and transportation costs, commissions, incidentals, and shall be liable for payment of any deficiency in the purchase price. This is strictly enforced. We reserve the right to assess a late charge of 1.5% of the total purchase price per month if payment is not made in accordance with any of these conditions of sale.

GUARANTEE The authenticity of every item offered for sale is guaranteed. Modern Auctions, Inc. warrants only the authorship of an item (as printed in BLUE type) and does not guarantee the condition, age, or any identifying characteristic used by Modern Auctions, Inc., in any descriptions such as color, method of construction, and type of materials. Any lot using the terms “attributed,” “attribution,” “in the style of,” “in the manner of,” or “after” does not qualify for our guarantee. In addition, the buyer assumes responsibility of reading all addendums and posted corrections to the catalogue prior to bidding.

CONDITION EVERYTHING IS SOLD IN “AS-IS” CONDITION. No statement regarding condition of any item, whether it is made orally at the auction or at any other time or in writing in this catalogue shall be deemed to be a warranty, representation, or assumption of liability. It is the sole responsibility of the buyer to inspect all goods prior to the sale. We strongly encourage all bidders to request a condition report on any item before bidding. All electrical items are sold for decorative value only and should be assumed not to be working. All measurements are approximate. Photographs of any lots not illustrated can be found on our website LAMODERN.com.

COLLECTION AND STORAGE ALL LOTS MUST BE REMOVED FROM THE AUCTION SHOWROOM BY 12:00 PM ON MAY 29TH. Purchases not removed by May 29th will be assessed a daily storage fee of $15 per day per lot. Items in storage are not insured by Modern Auctions, Inc. Unless other arrangements are made and confirmed in writing; the buyer assumes sole responsibility for shipping, packing, insurance, and storage concerns. A list of shippers can be provided upon request.

BIDDING We encourage you to attend the sale in-person. However, if you can not attend in person we offer an “absentee” or phone bidding service. For this service fill out and submit an “Absentee/Phone bid” form. To obtain this form please call (323) 904-1950 or go to our website. We will not execute absentee or phone bid orders unless a signed and completed bid form has been received. All Absentee/Phone bid forms must be received by Saturday, May 18th by 5:00 p.m. (PST) via fax to (323) 904-1954 or scan and send via email to: shannon@lamodern.com. We encourage you to call after faxing to confirm we have received your bid. We kindly ask that you do not call on the day of the sale to submit bids or to check if your bids were successful. All successful absentee/phone bids should be notified by phone by May 21st. In addition, the auction prices realized will be posted the day after the sale on our website. Do not rely on any auction results (prices realized) unless published on www.lamodern.com or as provided directly by Modern Auctions, Inc.

RESCISSION Should the authenticity of an item be disputed after a sale, the buyer has 90 days from the date of the auction to provide written documentation or conclusive opinion of a mutually agreed upon independent expert, retained at the buyers sole expense, that the item in question is not as stated in the catalogue. In the event of an error, Modern Auctions, Inc. will rescind the purchase contract. Modern Auctions, Inc. will reimburse the buyer for no more than the hammer price plus the buyer’s premium and only after the item is returned to the original point of sale in the condition in which it was sold. Taxes, packing, shipping, and storage costs will not be reimbursed. Modern Auctions, Inc. is not liable for any costs, such as expert's and attorney’s fees. If the item is authentic, as stated in the Modern Auctions, Inc. catalogue, then the purchaser shall bear Modern Auctions, Inc.’s expenses incurred in defense of the allegation, such as attorney’s fees and other costs. The limited right of rescission is only available to the original purchaser from Modern Auctions, Inc. Once the item is resold, then all rights and liabilities of Modern Auctions, Inc. regarding authenticity end. THE PURCHASER’S SOLE AND EXCLUSIVE REMEDY AGAINST MODERN AUCTIONS, INC. FOR ANY REASON IS THE LIMITED RIGHT OF RESCISSION DESCRIBED IN THIS SECTION. The purchaser shall not be entitled to damages, compensatory, incidental, consequential, nominal or punitive, nor any expenses incurred during the proceedings, such as expert's fees, attorney’s fees, and other costs.
