Tony Duquette One of the great style icons of the 20th century, Tony Duquette (1914–1999) created designs of timeless flair and magnetism. “Beauty, not luxury, is what I value” was his oft-repeated motto. Hutton Wilkinson, his longtime design partner, referred to his skill in conjuring finery when he claimed that Duquette “was a do-it-yourself de Medici.” Born in Los Angeles and educated at the Chouinard Art Institute in the 1940s, Duquette received peerless instruction as the protégé of Elsie De Wolfe—the eminent tastemaker often credited with originating the business of interior decoration, and a colleague of the great William “Billy” Haines. His own clients included both Hollywood royalty, such as actress Mary Pickford, and a platinum-clad roster of the wealthy and powerful, among them J. Paul Getty, Doris Duke, Norton Simon, and the Duchess of Windsor. Duquette’s style was broad and democratic. “I will use anything to help me capture the quality I am seeking; what I find in the street, in the attic, on the desert, in the sea, the gnarled tree root, the snail’s own shell.” The present lot is a classic example of this artfulness. Fashioned out of framed plastic and

mesh, this screen, or room-divider, was a prototype for the Paris apartment of American tycoon John Rosekrans and his wife Dodie, a patron of fine arts. 18th-century Chinese carved screens served as inspiration here. (Duquette also designed a snowflake pattern based on the Chinese décor, used in fabrics and wall-coverings.) His own Beverly Hills estate, Dawnridge, benefitted from this design, as Duquette made a similar piece for his home. With a love for theater (and theatricality), Duquette also fashioned costumes and set designs for films, including “Kismet” (1955) and “Can-Can” (1960). In 1961 he won a Tony award as costume designer for the original Broadway production of “Camelot.” By way of his baroque interiors for private homes and hotels, lavish costumes, and original set designs, the name Tony Duquette remains to be synonymous with glamour, fantasy, and excess.

Otis College: A Ceramic Legacy American ceramics over the last century have both evolved and endured, but Southern California holds claim as the breeding ground for revolutionary aesthetic and technical changes in the field. Beginning in the mid-twentieth century, a group of Los Angeles ceramists demanded the medium’s cultural reappraisal—away from associations of simple utility and domesticity. Through audacious experiments with scale, color, surface and technique, and by sheer drive and tenacity, this small faction of artists—including Glen Lukens, Peter Voulkos, Paul Soldner, John Mason, Henry Takemoto, Ken Price, and Billy Al Bengston—helped elevate the craft of ceramics to contemporary fine art. In the 1950s, Otis College of Art and Design (then the Los Angeles County Art Institute) was the crucible for the medium’s dramatic changes under the banner of the California Clay Movement. But this story began some 20 years earlier when Glen Lukens (1887–1967) became the founding head of the ceramics department at the University of Southern California’s School of Architecture in 1932. Lukens took a daring and unusual approach to pottery. Not simply decorative, his work married bright colors to raw, rough surfaces, inspired by the rugged landscape of the Mojave Desert, where the artist dug for alkalis to make glazes. More significantly, Lukens delighted in defects and happy accidents, such as cracked surfaces with hardened drops of over-applied glaze. His love of gesture and spontaneity would have a profound influence on other ceramists. No one was more deeply affected by Lukens’s example than Peter Voulkos (1924–2002). Montana-born, the burly and charismatic artist honed his talents at, among other places, Black Mountain College in North Carolina, the legendary school that nurtured such great artists as Robert Rauschenberg, Cy Twombly, Ruth Asawa, and John Chamberlain. In 1954 Voulkos became head of the ceramics department at Otis College. He brought with him energy, strength, and a bold streak influenced by Abstract Expressionism—all new elements for the discipline. Voulkos composed works in slabs of clay: stacked, perforated, and torn. Aggressively glazed and built in large format, they are reminiscent of Franz Kline or Willem de Kooning paintings, but rendered in three dimensions. There is nothing utilitarian about Voulkos’s ceramics; they are sculptural manifestations of force. The Otis kilns became the launching pad for this new ceramic artistry. Voulkos’s students and colleagues joined the signal artistic movements of the sixties and seventies. Paul Soldner (1921–2011), the first student in the nascent department, early on made staggeringly tall, monumental-sized pots, before creating sculpture of slabs in shapes reminiscent of

jagged “angry” flowers using his own new version of raku, the 16th-century Japanese firing method. At first with runic motifs, then in cruciform, John Mason (b. 1927) fabricated large-scale totemic sculptures; in his late career his art was geometric and minimalist. Henry Takemoto’s (b. 1930) early works—often large, rugged, fired clay forms, were overlaid with patterns and organic shapes referencing traditional Asian ornamentation. Ken Price (1935–2012), a student for a brief time at Otis College, later became arguably the most important sculptor of ceramics in the late 20th century. Though from Voulkos he learned a freedom of expression in clay form, he would later reject his teacher’s penchant for big and brawny sculpture in favor of small, fierce pieces. Price developed a personal visual vocabulary that shifted back and forth between geometric shapes and biomorphic forms with eye-piercing, vibrantly colored surfaces. Price, Mason, Soldner, and another Otis College alumnus, Billy Al Bengston (b. 1934), were among the first artists shown at Ferus Gallery—the venue credited with establishing Los Angeles as a contemporary arts center. Bengston, unlike the others, would forgo clay for paint—materials taken from the California car and motorcycle culture, like sprayed enamel on metal. Yet Bengston credits Voulkos with teaching him a rakish, assertive spirit and “how to handle . . . actual physicality. The strength, the tenacity.” The progenitors of key elements in Bengston’s later work are evident in his student ceramics: he placed blunt, forceful emblems in the center of his compositions, and created sharply-angled mug handles shaped like chevrons, a motif he would regularly employ in later works. In recent years the art of ceramics has enjoyed consistent recognition at art institutions. The Museum of Fine Arts in Boston opened a yearlong survey exhibition in January 2015 dedicated to the interpretation of more than a century of ceramic production in the United States, called Nature, Sculpture, Abstraction, and Clay 100 Years of American Ceramics. The show follows other acclaimed presentations of work in clay, mounted at major museums including the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, the Philadelphia Museum of Art, the Nasher Sculpture Center in Dallas, and the Los Angeles County Museum of Art.

André Brasilier André Brasilier was born to painters in the Loire Valley region of France in 1929. He studied art at the École des Beaux-Arts, Paris, and was a success early on. For example, he was awarded the Prix Florence-Blumenthal in 1952, and the Grand Prix de Rome in 1953, for which he spent the following three years living at the Villa di Medici Medici as an artist in residence with a stipend, a privilege extended by the French Academy to prizewinners until 1968. He also received the Prix Charles-Morellet at the Salon de la Jeune Peinture in 1961. A distinguished French landscape painter with a languid, lyrical style, Brasilier has staying power–his career has spanned six decades. Natural beauty abounds in his pastoral scenes rendered almost abstract and surreal. Notes French critic Bernard de Montgolfier: “One could say that Brasilier has a very personal way of being non-figurative within figuration.” Or, in the artist’s own words, he distills nature: “I always try to give the quintessence of a subject, to say a great deal with a little, like Japanese artists who focus on asceticism and simplicity.” Over the years Brasilier has had numerous exhibitions all over the world: throughout France, and in Germany, Switzerland, Japan, England, Mexico, Canada, and the United States. Notably, one hundred of his paintings were shown in a retrospective at the State Hermitage Museum, Saint Petersburg, Russia, in 2005. André Brasilier. New York: Findlay Galleries, 1968. Print.

Emile Grau-Sala Emile Grau-Sala (1911–1975), born Emilio Grau-Sala in Spain, attended the Escuela de Bella Artes, Barcelona, and later studied under Antoni Clavé. He and his wife, painter Ángeles Santos, relocated to Paris at the outbreak of the Spanish Civil War. He was influenced by both his contemporaries in Paris, and painters of older generations, such as Raoul Dufy, and great impressionists, particularly Manet and Renoir. In Paris he found professional success and exhibited both in galleries and the Salons, and also in the galleries of his native Barcelona. Internationally, his paintings were shown in London, Buenos Aires, and Los Angeles. He was associated with the Jeune Peinture (Young Painting) artists of the School of Paris, the postwar generation of painters working in a modern (less traditional and figurative) style in the 1950s. Known as a figurative painter who used thick, built-up slabs of intense color in oil, Grau-Sala often depicted graceful landscapes and scenes of genteel French society. Exteriors included the racetrack or the circus, seascapes, and elegant parties. Stylish domiciles, portraits, and nude

studies were the subjects of interior scenes. The artist lived in France some twenty-five years before returning to Spain, having first acquired a vacation home in northwestern France–an extremely picturesque setting with a glamorous, international social set. Grau-Sala favored painting the local markets, beaches, and racing scenes–featuring horses and paddocks. A famed illustrator as well, he also painted in watercolor and used pastels. His work illustrated notable editions of books by Maupassant, Colette, and Baudelaire. In 1937 Emile Grau-Sala was awarded third-honorable mention at the Carnegie International exhibition of paintings in Pittsburgh. Distinguished banker, philanthropist, and art collector Robert Lehman bought two Grau-Sala paintings (one with a paddock theme) from Paris dealers in 1964; both are in the collection of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York.

Calder in California Alexander Calder (1898–1976), a modernist master known for revolutionizing abstract sculpture and originating kinetic art mobiles, lived much of his professional life between France and New York. A member of the avant-garde, he employed Surrealist tendencies and counted Marcel Duchamp, Joan Miró, Jean Arp, Piet Mondrian, and other art world stars, as friends and confidants. After World War II, Calder returned to Paris for many exhibitions and he quickly found enthusiastic support in the form of Galerie Maeght. Aimé and Marguerite Maeght provided refuge for the artistic elite and literati during the occupied years in France. Later, the prestigious gallery became a nexus for like-minded artists, and nurtured the careers of Duchamp, Miró, and Marc Chagall, among other 20th-century icons. From 1950 to his death, Calder showed with Galerie Maeght, Paris. Whimsical, colorful, and popular—as an artist who “radically translated French Surrealist vocabulary into American vernacular”—it is no surprise that Calder found a receptive audience in California. Indeed, the link between the artist and Southern California was established very early on. From 1906 to 1909, Calder's family lived in Pasadena. His father, also a sculptor, worked on commissions for California locations. For one project he created archways for a building on the campus of what would become the California Institute of Technology. His parents encouraged his skill in making things by hand. They gave him his first tool set and provided the young boy with his first studio in the cellar of the family’s Pasadena house. At the height of his career Alexander Calder happily obliged numerous requests for commissions in California. In 1947 he had a solo exhibition at San Francisco Museum of Modern Art. The museum boasts a large standing mobile in red, black, blue, and white, in its rooftop sculpture garden. A milestone achievement, Calder’s Three Quintains (Hello Girls) (1964) fountain was commissioned by the Los Angeles County Museum of Art to coincide with the opening of the museum on Wilshire Boulevard in 1965. He also designed the celebratory poster announcing LACMA’s start. In November 2013, the county museum presented the critically lauded, Frank Gehry designed, Calder and Abstraction: From Avant-Garde to Iconic, which exhibited the artist’s sculp-

tures, mobiles, stabiles, and maquettes, spanning forty years. Other key public artworks include the Bunker Hill landmark in downtown Los Angeles: Four Arches (1974), so-titled in homage to his father’s archway reliefs at Caltech. In UCLA’s tranquil sculpture garden rests Button Flower (1959), and Spinal Column (1968) lies at the front steps of the San Diego Museum of Art. Lot 167, Quatre Blancs (1976), is a prime example of Calder’s artistic genius. “The substantial size, the simple construction, the elegant balance, and the primary colors—Quatre Blancs shows Calder’s masterful ability to distill his life’s work into a simple gesture,” states Peter Loughrey, Director of Fine Art & Design at LAMA. Among Calder’s very last works, this outstanding sculpture was made for his Galerie Maeght show in December 1976, which opened shortly after his death. This lot will be offered at auction for the first time since the original owner purchased the work in 1978 through Galerie Maeght, Paris. Calder’s long-standing relationship with Galerie Maeght was significant in establishing the artist’s international market: with the gallery his work traveled from Paris, across America, to California. This lot was acquired through Galerie Maeght by a Northern California collector and comes direct to Los Angeles to trade hands. Major exhibitions of Calder’s sculptures will open at Pulitzer Arts Foundation, St. Louis, Missouri, in May 2015; and at Tate Modern, London, in November 2015. Alexander Calder is one of fourteen renowned artists heralded in American Icons: Masterworks from SFMOMA and the Fisher Collection, on view April 8–22 June 2015, at the Grand Palais in Paris.

“I want to be a machine.” – Andy Warhol

Campbell’s Soup I is a major suite in the Andy Warhol canon. Defining emblems of Warhol’s artistry, these prints are icons of the Pop art movement, and arguably are among the most famous images in all of postwar art. In these prints, Warhol returned to the subject of his first solo show as an artist and to that which made his name: Campbell’s Soup Cans, a group of 32 silkscreened paintings on canvas with hand-lettering (now in the collection of the Museum of Modern Art, New York) exhibited in 1962 at the legendary Ferus Gallery in Los Angeles. The 1968 Campbell’s Soup I prints represent a refinement of that work. They realize a concept that Warhol expressed often and variously throughout his career, but never more succinctly than when he said: “I want to be a machine.” With the use of the mechanical silkscreen technique, he removed the direct hand of the artist from the artistic process. “Traditional, manual virtuosity no longer mattered,” in light of Warhol and his silkscreens, write art historians Tony Scherman and David Dalton. “The result alone mattered: whether or not it was a striking image. Making art became a series of mental decisions.” This notion turned centuries of fine art orthodoxy on its head. After Warhol, artists would be seen not only as makers of compelling objects, such as painting and sculpture, but also as makers of ideas.

Warhol’s 1962 Campbell’s Soup Cans appear, at first glance, to be faithful and exact replicas of the soup company’s labels. But the handiwork of the artist is noticeable in the slightly askew lettering of the soup names, and in the fleur-de-lis images that run along the bottom of each label (made by using hand-cut rubber stamps). In the fourth edition catalogue raisonné of Warhol prints, curator Donna De Salvo says of the 1968 silkscreens: “The ten screenprints in each portfolio, based on paintings from 1962, possess none of the color variations or painterly effects of the other prints. They remain the most mechanical and uniform prints Warhol ever produced.” Warhol, in other words, improved upon himself— with his 1968 Campbell’s Soup I edition, he made a Warhol more properly a Warhol.

Agnes Martin Canadian-born Agnes Martin (1912–2004) was a major figure of 1950s and 1960s abstraction, known for her square-format works with all-over grid patterns, rendered in paint and graphite. Described as an artist who bridged Abstract Expressionism and Minimalism, she exhibited an austere North American pragmatism, influenced by Protestantism. In a similar vein, her belief in the tenets of Zen Buddhism aligns with her oeuvre’s classical refrains. Martin’s paintings evoke ancient (Greek, Egyptian, and Chinese) ideals—simplicity and perfection, or a search for solitude. She said, “My interest is in experience that is wordless and silent, and in the fact that this experience can be expressed for me in artwork, which is also wordless and silent.” The time after her first solo show in 1958 at Betty Parsons Gallery, New York, marked increasing commercial and critical success for Martin, both national and international. But just as she was gaining acclaim, in 1967 the artist abandoned the New York art scene and painting in general. Martin traveled across the U.S. and Canada, and settled in New Mexico, where she had lived previously, to write. When she returned to painting some six years later, she refined her practice. Still subtle and meditative, her late 1970s paintings feature wide horizontal watercolor washes of pale blue, yellow, and light red, delicately defined by penciled lines. Their variations in color, opacity, and transparency evoke optical and textural allusions. They seemingly refer to the Southwestern landscape: like luminous, dissolving stretches of the desert horizon. The artist said these works “are light, lightness, about merging, about formlessness, breaking down forms.”

Martin joined New York’s Pace Gallery in 1975 (to this day she is one of their featured artists). Untitled (1977), in watercolor, graphite, and ink on paper, has excellent gallery provenance. This lot retains Pace Gallery and Margo Leavin Gallery labels and will be offered on the market for the first time in decades. (A similar watercolor, also from 1977, is in the collection of the Guggenheim, New York.) Since her first solo exhibition, Martin’s work has been the subject of more than 80 solo shows and two retrospectives. Early one-woman exhibitions were at the Institute of Contemporary Art, University of Pennsylvania, Philadelphia (1973); the Museum of Modern Art, New York (1973); and the Hayward Gallery in London (1977). The retrospective Agnes Martin: Paintings and Drawings 1974–1990 was organized by the Stedelijk Museum, Amsterdam (1991); and the Whitney Museum of American Art organized the survey Agnes Martin in 1992. In 1989 Martin was inducted into the American Academy and Institute of Arts and Letters. Other honors include the Skowhegan Medal of Painting and Sculpture (1987), and the Golden Lion at the 1997 Venice Biennale. In June 2015, Tate Modern, London will present the first retrospective of Agnes Martin since her death in 2004. Brandauer, Aline. “Bearing Witness.” Agnes Martin: Works on Paper.

MGM studio actress Ann Rutherford had a long career during the Golden Age of Hollywood, boasting more than 50 film credits to her name. Famously she played Scarlett’s younger sister, Careen, in the 1939 film “Gone With the Wind.” She was married first to David May II, the grandson of the May Department Stores Company founder, then from 1953 William Dozier, the 1960s “Batman” TV series producer.

John Harris (1937–2002) lived an artist’s life in New York during the sixties, but his roaming spirit took him back west to California (he was originally from Oregon), to Venice and Big Sur, where he remained for the rest of his life. In the High Sierra Mountains he produced log tables from felled tree trunks, which became his signature line of furniture. The northern mountains’ abandoned mining towns and rough-hewn buildings influenced Harris’ next projects in Venice, where he designed and manufactured furniture of railroad spikes and steel.

314 TOM DIXON Punch XL is a prototype for a series of bespoke aluminum shades that are infinitely customizable–the geometric pattern and size of each is unique. This prototype is made of 12 panels, 30 ribs, and 20 nodes, or joints. Designed in partnership with Trumpf Inc., one of the world’s leading sheet metal fabricators, Punch XL was created for the 2013 Sotheby’s (RED) Auction–all proceeds were donated to the Global Fund to Fight AIDS. This is a prototype model of a design, and not a fully developed product. It should not be used as a light, but rather as an installation piece.
