Preview: February 25 - March 5, 10-6pm Auction: Sunday, March 6, 12pm (PST) 16145 Hart Street Van Nuys, CA 91406


For only the second time since 1992, LAMA is having an auction in March. Due to the increase in fresh material from local estates, we have added this auction to the schedule to handle the volume. With over 500 lots there is a lot to absorb, however, here are a few of the many special highlights. Ettore Sottsass has long been recognized as a major force in architecture and design for the latter part of the 20th century. Today, he continues to influence a new generation of designers and architects. His work has been the subject of many books, retrospectives, and museum exhibits around the world, including a landmark exhibition held at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art in 2006. Critics, historians and design professionals have known for some time that his works are historically significant, however collectors and dealers have been slow to recognize the power Sottsass pieces can bring to a collection. Max Palevsky was an early supporter of Sottsass and lived with an exciting mixture of ancient artifacts, Modern Art, Arts & Crafts, and Sottsass’ own distinct brand of Post-Modern. In fact, the timelessness of Sottsass’ designs helped showcase and enhance the beauty of Lichtenstein paintings, Roman statues, and Rodin bronzes, as well as the Malibu coastline they all shared together. LAMA is very proud to bring to the market for the first time a large number of Sottsass’ unique creations, and we are especially honored to represent them on behalf of the late Max Palevsky, a true visionary. All of the works from the Palevsky collection will be sold with no reserve, which makes for a once in a lifetime opportunity to acquire a piece with what will likely become legendary provenance in the future. Our special thanks to Ron Labaco for his essay on this collection starting on page 28. Another remarkable opportunity in this sale is the chance to acquire artworks from the first Curator of Modern & Contemporary Art at Los Angeles County Museum of Art. James Byrnes has collected Modern Art since the 1930’s from Man Ray, Alexander Calder, Emerson Woelffer, Elaine de Kooning, Al Held, and Roberto Matta, all of which are represented here. I particularly like the Harry Bertoia brooch that Mr. Byrnes acquired through his close friendship with Bertoia’s father in law, William Valentiner. Don’t miss our blog which can be found on our home page at www.lamodern. com for more interesting stories about this collection. As if there was not enough fresh material in the sale already, I am personally thrilled to be part of bringing back to the market a landmark sculpture of the 20th century. I first encountered Reg Butler’s “Maquette for The Unknown Political Prisoner” while writing a paper as a student at Sotheby’s Institute in London. It has not been on the market since 1963, and only two later replicas (one in the collection at MoMA, the other in the Tate) have been exhibited since the original was removed from public view in 1953. Read more about this work on page 59.

We hope you will enjoy this sale,

ALBERT FREY: THE INTERNATIONAL While most know him as a Palm Springs Modernist architect, Albert Frey’s (1903-1998) career spans the western hemisphere and most of the 20th century. In the late 1920s, Frey worked for the Modern architecture master Le Corbusier designing buildings in Paris. Before moving from his native Switzerland to America in 1930, he worked in Brussels as the chief designer at the offices of Jean-Jules Eggericx and Raphael Verwilghen where he worked on the urban planning and design for two cities in Zaire. Fascinated by America and eager to evolve his modern technological aesthetic, he arrived in New York and immediately began working with architect A. Lawrence Kocher. One of their first projects was the Aluminaire, a full-scale house constructed of prefabricated materials first exhibited at the Grand Central Palace in New York in 1931 to “demonstrate the possibilities of affordable housing achieved through modern technology.” During the 1930s, Kocher and Frey’s partnership proved to be one of the most influential of the decade due to their frequent articles in Architectural Record exploring low-cost, yet functional single-family housing. As a result of economic conditions, the work was sparse for the pair and in 1934, Frey designed modern flat-roofed houses for the United States Department of Agriculture on its Farm Housing Project. In 1940, after achieving success with the Kocher-Samson Building and numerous residential constructions in Palm Springs, he designed and built the Frey House I, one of his most celebrated commissions and “the first house to exhibit his new interest in horizontal wall planes extending into the landscape.” This side chair and plywood bedroom storage unit are two pieces of furniture designed by Frey that add to the futuristic atmosphere of the Frey House I.

WHO IS JAMES BYRNES From 1946 – 1953 James Byrnes was the first curator of Modern and Contemporary Art at Los Angeles County Museum of History, Science, and Art, which is now known as LACMA. In the thirties, Byrnes had studied art in New York at the National Academy of Design, the Art Students League, and the American Artists School, where he had met many artists before WWII. Byrnes, who served in the Navy during WWII, heard from an officer that a job was opening at the County Museum, so he left his home state of New York and moved to Los Angeles to pursue his career. In 1946, W. R. Valentiner became the director of the art wing of the County Museum and encouraged Byrnes in his love for modern art. While at the County Museum, Valentiner became Byrnes’ mentor and broadened his knowledge of art as a whole. As their friendship grew, Valentiner became the director of the North Carolina Museum of Art and decided to appoint Byrnes as his associate director. After Valentiner’s death in 1958, Byrnes subsequently became the director of the North Carolina Museum of Art. From 1962 – 1972, Byrnes would go on to direct the New Orleans Museum of Art, and finally from 1973 – 1975, he was the director of the Newport Harbor Art Museum where he would end his career of directing. James and his wife Barbara were heavily involved in the Los Angeles art scene in the 40s and 50s. They became friends with many noted artists from Man Ray, Emerson Woelffer, Harry Bertoia, Inez Johnston, to Max Ernst, Dorthea Tanning, and Roberto Matta, among others. Byrnes loved all that was modern. His son Ron Byrnes notes that his father “thought contemporary art was the thing that was happening.” Even though Byrnes painted early in his life, he decided that he was better suited to be a docent, a curator, and ultimately a director.

GLORIA DE HERRERA Gloria de Herrera (1929 – 1985) was first introduced to the Byrnes’ when she stepped into Barbara Byrnes’ American Contemporary Gallery on Hollywood Boulevard. Gloria, a young girl of seventeen at the time, would visit Barbara’s gallery to study the art and read art books. Barbara knew that James needed an assistant for his upcoming exhibit of contemporary California paintings at the 1949 California Centennial, so she suggested that Gloria take the job. While working for James, Gloria became friends with Man Ray and his wife Juliet, who asked Gloria to come with them to Paris in 1951. While in Paris, Gloria learned to restore art, where she put her skills to good use. Gloria’s first conservation projects included restoring a Mondrian and a damaged Chagall. She became known for her skills and was referred to Henri Matisse, who was seeking trained assistance with pasting together his cut-outs, which Gloria ultimately completed after his death. While living in Los Angeles and France, Gloria became friends with a variety of noted artists, such as Man Ray, Marcel Duchamp, and William Copley. James and Barbara Byrnes saw Gloria’s desire to surround herself with art and artists, and gave her the opportunity to seek out her passion.

ETTORE SOTTSASS & THE INFLUENCE OF MAX PALEVSKY BY RON LABACCO

Architect and designer Ettore Sottsass, Jr. (1917-2007) was one of the most powerful creative forces from the second half of the twentieth century. He is internationally acclaimed for his contribution to architecture, industrial design, furniture, ceramics, glass, jewelry, crafts, graphic design, and photography. One of Italy’s most versatile and expressive architect-designers, Sottsass’s prolific career spanned six decades of artistic production. His early landmark designs include the first Italian electronic computer—the Elea 9003—for which he was awarded the prestigious Compasso d’Oro in 1959; the bright red plastic Valentine portable typewriter (1969) which is now an icon of the period; and his mobile, multifunctional molded-fiberglass furniture units of the 1970s. His innovations continued in 1980 with the establishment of the Memphis group, whose groundbreaking approach to design made it a leader of postmodernism— spawning countless imitators and influencing the look of a decade. Sottsass’s exciting and provocative creations made him a living legend of design in the twentieth-century and on into the twenty-first. The Austrian-born Sottsass graduated from the Turin Politecnico in 1939 with a degree in architecture. In 1947 he opened a

design studio in Milan. Convinced that color played an essential part in the creation of space, Sottsass made a drastic break from the monochromatic preferences of the international style. In his early career, just after World War II, he was primarily interested in reconstruction projects for war-torn areas of Italy, and exhibition and product design. His architectural work emphasized the social role of spatial organization in encouraging community interaction.

groups, including Studio Alchimia, Cleto Munari, Global Tools, and Memphis. In 1980 Sottsass and four young architects formed a partnership, Sottsass Associati, with whom he created interiors, exhibitions, and hi-tech products. In the last decades of his life Sottsass’s commissions included furniture, ceramics, glass, jewelry, and architecture. Through his startling, eclectic, and irreverent aesthetic, he continued to be at the forefront of design.

Sottsass’s intuitive, philosophical outlook was reflected in his work, whether it be office machines (1957-69) for Olivetti, ceramic vases (1964) inspired by his experiences in India, a neoclassically-proportioned cabinet with ceramic tile accents (1966) for Poltronova, an unconventional room divider clad in patterned, laminated plastic for Memphis (1981), or large-scale, sculptural silver vases (2002). Poetic and spiritual values were fundamental to his creativity, and they found expression in the form of symbolic shapes and strong colors in even his most rationalized technological designs.

The museum community has long recognized him as a major figure in his field. For the 1972 landmark exhibition Italy: The New Domestic Landscape at the Museum of Modern Art, New York, Sottsass created an “environment” by nullifying the need for conventional walls. Independent, free-standing plastic units on castors, each fitted with task-specific hardware such as shelves, tables, toilets, or sinks, could be combined, arranged, and rearranged to conform to the needs and whims of the individual. Sottsass viewed these units as exonerated from any formal commitment to a single conformation. In 1976 he was invited to exhibit a series of photographs of architecture in both desert and mountain environments by the Cooper-Hewitt Museum, now the National Design Museum, New York. That same year the Design Center in

A strong believer in collaboration, he worked with such internationally renowned designers as George Nelson and Camilo Olivetti. He was also co-founder of several successful design

Berlin organized Ettore Sottsass, Jr., a major exhibition of his work that traveled to Venice, Paris, Barcelona, Jerusalem, and Sydney. In 1994, the Centre Georges Pompidou in Paris held a retrospective, which covered his then almost fifty-year career. More recent retrospective exhibitions during his lifetime included the Museo di Arte Moderna e Contemporanea di Trento e Rovereto, Italy (2005); Los Angeles County Museum of Art (2006); Design Museum, London (2007); and Ghent Design Museum, Belgium (2007). It was in 1978 at the Israel Museum in Jerusalem that Max Palevsky (1924-2010) and Sottsass first met. A philanthropist and art patron, Palevsky had established the museum’s design center—the Palevsky Design Pavilion—where the exhibition Ettore Sottass Jr. was on view. The two quickly bonded through their mutual interests, and they developed a deep friendship that would last three decades. In fact, Sottsass mentions “Max” in his 1992 essay “I Colori” from the book of his writings, Ettore Sottsass: Scritti, 1946-2001 (2002). In it he describes a hyper-sensorial experience of color and nature in the  California desert at sunset, presumably while staying at Palevsky’s Palm Springs residence. Aaron Betsky captured the unique qualities of the Palm Springs retreat in his book Three California Houses: Homes of Max Palevsky

(2003). Also featured are the properties in Beverly Hills and Malibu, all noted for their architecture and remarkable art and design collections. He cites 1984 as the date that Sottsass was commissioned to transform the interior of Palevsky’s Spanish-Colonial style villa in Malibu, and other sources indicate that it was completed by 1985. At the time Sottsass had already achieved international fame as the founder of Memphis, established four years earlier, but he was already contemplating leaving the group. This may help explain the stylistic break of the Palevsky furniture from his Memphis designs that same year. Although the Malibu furnishings were still rooted in the principles of a Memphis design vocabulary, they reveal a growing interest in assemblage and in different combinations of color and materials that would later find full expression. One could say that the Malibu interior design commission served as the testing ground for this new aesthetic. Stylistically and materially, such furnishings (all unmarked) as the wall mirror and marble plant stand are closer in character to the Deldiaviolo floor mirror (1986) and Perlione pedestal (1987) that would be made by Ultima Edizione, Italy, when Sottsass turned to creating limited-edition furniture for art galleries. Other designs such as the writing desk take a nostalgic glance back at his oeuvre, like his furniture in wood for Poltronova from the

mid-1960s. But in general the works look to the future, predicting the interior designs of the residential masterpiece that he would soon realize—Wolf House in Ridgeway, Colorado, from 1987-1989. Architect and designer Johanna Grawunder was project architect for Sottsass Associati on Wolf House, among other important residential architecture commissions from the late 1980s and 1990s. She attributes the stylistic vocabulary of the Malibu furnishings to Sottsass’s “built-in” or “integrated” approach to furniture as elements within a broader architectural setting, in the vein of Adolf Loos, Frank Lloyd Wright, and Rudolf Schindler. This may be seen in the baldaccino-like structure in the living room, with red columns that visually reference the helical columns in the adjacent library, and its domed light source that echoes the arched windows above; the wall-mounted headboard-and-nightstands in the bedroom reflect this methodology as well. Thus the Malibu designs form a link between Sottsass’s break from Memphis and his return to his architectural roots.

Late last year, I went to a house in the hills above Malibu to look at furniture to possibly include in this auction. As the front door opened, I was exposed to a dramatic view of the Malibu coastline framed in floor-to-ceiling glass walls. It was the sort of architectural moment that real estate agents like to call “explosive”. However, I could hardly notice the view because of a small wire sculpture on a pedestal in the foreground.

92 REG BUTLER THE UNKNOWN POLITICAL PRISONER MAQUETTE

Many years ago, I was assigned a paper to write on the subject of propaganda in modern sculpture. I chose this very sculpture to illustrate a point that in the middle part of the 20th century, artists were using abstraction counter-intuitively to humanize their subjects.

Exhibited:

1952-53 Wire and metal on a cast plaster base Studio 17.5”h x 6.75” x 7.5” “ I N T E R N AT I O N A L S C U L P T U R E C O M P E T I T I O N : THE UNKNOWN PO L I T I C A L P R I S O N E R ” , I N ST I T U T E O F C O N T E M PORARY ARTS, LONDON, M A R C H 1 4 - 1 5 , 1 95 3 , H E L D AT T H E TAT E G A L L ERY.

Provenance:

Reg Butler’s “Maquette for the Unknown Political Prisoner” was chosen as the grand-prize winning entrant in a competition of the same name in 1952 that included entries from 3,500 artists. Other notable entrants were Calder, Hepworth, Chadwick, and Roszak to name just a few of the internationally known sculptors. The artists were asked to “pay tribute to those individuals who, in many countries and in diverse political situations, had dared to offer their liberty and their lives for the cause of human freedom.” Butler’s earlier studies for this work show a somewhat more obvious message of pain and struggle by impaling a human figure on the main vertical spire. But it was his final maquette, which captured the essence of the message through abstraction that impressed judges Roland Penrose, Alfred H. Barr, and Sir Herbert Read. The work resembles a large radar tower and at over 300 feet high, it would certainly have cut an imposing outline on the border of West and East Berlin, its desired location for construction. The figures below the structures (known as “watchers”) were to have been created much larger than life-size and captured not only the message of humanity looking out for examples of human rights violations, but also, with their heads looking upward, subconsciously reinforced growing fears and concerns surrounding the “red scare” and even UFO’s. This little maquette received extraordinary attention at the time, even appearing in Life magazine. Unfortunately the symbolism and implied scale were ignored by many art critics of the day, some of whom felt the works on exhibit were “too abstract (and therefore ‘inhuman’)”. When the exhibition of the winning entries were exhibited at the Tate Collection in London, a Hungarian refugee, echoing some of these opinions in the press, smashed the maquette in protest declaring the reduction of human suffering to “scrap metal” was “an absolute lack of humanism”. Butler quickly built a replica (now in the permanent collection at MoMA) to be on view until the end of the exhibition and carefully restored the original, which was eventually presented to the competition’s organizing director Anthony Kloman. A full-scale model was never realized, but a larger replica was created a few years later and was subsequently acquired along with studies and drawings by the Tate Gallery in London. Kloman sold the original maquette at Sotheby’s London salesroom in 1963, where it was acquired by an American private collector. It has been enjoying an “explosive” view of the Malibu coastline ever since.

RACHEL WHITEREAD: SCULPTING NEGATIVE SPACE British artist Rachel Whiteread (born 1963), the first woman awarded the prestigious Turner Prize, is captivated by objects from the past that she transforms into representations using materials such as plaster, rubber, wood, and cardboard. Influenced by the formality of modern furniture design yet inextricably connected to her childhood experiences, Whiteread created “Untitled: Daybed” out of traditional mattress materials as a conceptual idea of the negative space underneath a daybed. By including four cylindrical holes at the corners and horizontal contours for slats or straps, “Untitled: Daybed” is a distillation of negative space evoked by the Mies van der Rohe Barcelona Daybed. Whiteread’s sculpture was first exhibited in Glasgow, Scotland and was then exhibited in the United States in New York in 2000. Rachel Whiteread: Daybed. A/D Gallery, 2000. Web. 14 Jan. 2011.

VASA: A CONTINUOUS VOCABULARY Known primarily for his multi-colored acrylic sculptures, Yugoslavian artist Vasa Mihich (born 1933) explores the interaction between light, color, and space. While studying and creating art in Belgrade, he visited Paris and was inspired by American art. In 1960, he moved to Los Angeles where his fascination with light and color came to fruition. After exhibiting his work at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, he sold his first piece, a painted plywood sculpture entitled “Crimson, Yellow, and Green”. Vasa is most well-known for employing acrylic in his sculptures, however, his early painted wood constructions show strong parallels to the Hard-edge painters in California, who were painting compositions marked by geometric shapes and abrupt transitions of color as a reaction to the gestural, more painterly style of the Abstract Expressionists. By 1967, he had quickly moved away from this static medium by utilizing new technologies in his Los Angeles studio to construct acrylic tubes allowing him to use a multitude of colors, as represented in “Untitled (#2963)”.

HARRY BERTOIA JEWELRY While teaching and working at the Cranbrook Academy in the late 1930’s, Harry Bertoia (1915-1978) began creating jewelry, which marked his first use of metal as an artist medium. Before this venture into such an unfamiliar form, Bertoia entered Cranbrook as a painting major, but found himself drawn to the metal shop. In the exploration of jewelry-making, he was faced with a very different set of challenges. According to John Willenbecher, “The jewelry forms he developed were highly sculptural in approach despite their small size.” This hammered, bent, and pierced silver brooch highlights Bertoia’s fascination with simple, organic forms blended with repeated voids. This example was created while Bertoia was living and working in Southern California between 1943 and 1950. It was acquired directly from Bertoia by James and Barbara Bynes who were close friends of William Valentiner, Bertoia’s father-in-law. . Schiffer, Nancy N., and Val O. Bertoia. The World of Bertoia.

HARRY BERTOIA “SOUNDING PIECES” As Bertoia was working on a sculpture that consisted of several standing rods, he accidentally broke a rod, causing it to crash into another rod, resulting in a sound that resonated deeply with the artist. According to Bertoia himself, this sound “initiated a deliberate gesture in search of understanding what a group of wires would do.” Throughout the 1960s, Bertoia created over 100 sound sculptures consisting of rows of flexible copper rods that sway when touched or blown, producing various tones depending on the length and mass of the rods. He referred to this sonorous atmosphere as Sonambient, the resulting environment created by the gentle clangor of the rods. These two pieces are early examples of the artist’s interaction with sound, evidenced by the brass cylinders atop the rods and the padded feet beneath the base. Schiffer, Nancy N., and Val O.

MIRKO BASALDELLA One of the most influential Italian artists of the twentieth century, Mirko Basaldella (1910-1969) was known for his abstract and figurative paintings. After achieving success with his solo exhibitions in Italy, some of his work was exhibited in the Comet Gallery in New York City alongside his influence and brother-in-law, Corrado Cagli. He then traveled to Paris and was heavily impacted by Cubism and Surrealism, which is evident in his paintings from 1939-1945. Upon moving to the United States in the early 1950s, his work was displayed at the Catherine Viviano Gallery and the Museum of Modern Art in New York. While continuing his artistic output that won him numerous awards, Mirko was appointed the director of Harvard University’s design workshop in 1957. In Mirko’s paintings from the early 1960s, there exists a primordial sense of life that is abstracted by dusky tones, characteristic of his idiosyncratic interpretation of Surrealism. Mirko.

ROBERT GRAHAM: VIRGIN OF GUADALUPE Mexican sculptor Robert Graham (1938-2008) is famous for his sculptures exploring the sensuousness and beauty of the human figure. He created a gateway structure for the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum to commemorate the 1984 Olympics as well as a bronze sculpture, The Dance Door, which sits prominently in front of the Los Angeles Music Center. In 2002, the Archdiocese of Los Angeles commissioned Graham to create The Great Bronze Doors for the Our Lady of the Angels Cathedral entrance. Above these doors stands The Virgin Mary, a humanistic rendering of Mary without a veil, arms outstretched and strong hands welcoming to the masses. One of his last major commissions, the front entrance has become the most prominent feature of the cathedral. This early study, Head of the Virgin of Guadalupe, with lips, nose, and eyes evocative of African, Asian, Latino, and Caucasian women, represents a dignified, hard-working Virgin Mary.

LORNA SIMPSON III 1994 Norton Family Christmas Gift sculpted wishbones encased in a felt-lined redwood box $1,000-1,500

Every year since 1988, computer programmer, software publisher, and Museum of Modern Art board member Peter Norton has been giving his annual Peter Norton Family Christmas Project gift to one thousand of his closest friends in the art community. Forgoing the typical holiday card, Norton chooses to showcase celebrated artists from his vast collection, resulting in these pieces becoming highly desirable objets d’art. Personally commissioned by Norton, the pieces intend to reinforce the idea that contemporary art can be “accessible and understandable, through an actual object that people can live with.” The 1994 gift from conceptual photographer Lorna Simpson, entitled III, consists of three sculptured wishbones encased in a felt-lined redwood box. Influenced by race and gender in the post-Civil War South, African-American artist Kara Walker created a pop-up book filled with 3-D cut-paper images of the dreams of “a soon-to-be-emancipated 19th-century Negress” for the 1997 gift. One of the largest and most difficult to produce, the 2002 gift by British artist Yinka Shonibare, Unititled (Dollhouse), is a replica of the 1872 Victorian town house in the East End of London where he now lives. Adorned with furnishings covered in Dutch wax print cloth and a miniature reproduction of Shonibare’s painting Diary of a Victorian Dandy: 14.00 Hours, his dollhouse is a mash-up of his traditional English historical references with his Nigerian roots.

348 GERTRUD & OTTO NATZLER RARE MINIATURE CERAMIC VASE Studio, executed 1965 Green Crystalline glaze Signed “n” .875”h x 1.125”diameter (2.2cm x 2.9cm) $1,500-2,000


THE NATZLER MINIATURE: A SMALL MASTERPIECE Otto and Gertrud Natzler, famous for some of the most admired ceramics of the 20th century, created each piece as a collaborative effort. Gertrud would throw each piece into a refined and elegant form and Otto would complete it using one of his 2,000 unique glazes. When asked about the relationship between Gertrud’s forms and his glazes, Otto explained, “the selection of the glaze is only half the story, since the form will interact with the natural performance of the glaze in the fire.” This creative relationship was particularly essential in 1965 when Gertrud developed a bothersome inflammation of the right elbow joint, which prevented her from effectively centering the clay on her wheel. Ceasing to mold clay was not an option for Gertrud, so she decided to create a set of miniatures that involved a low-impact, painless process. Initially, Otto thought she was wasting her time with such tiny creations, but upon closer inspection their beauty astounded him. Otto recalls this moment: “I realized with amazement that each form was sensed in its proportions to within a fraction of a millimeter; each was, in fact, a small masterpiece.” The next steps for Otto were to devise glazes that replicated the effects of the larger originals, a technique for applying them, and a firing process that would not distort the paper-thin forms. After several weeks of experimentation, Otto achieved success with his “miniature glazes” and multifirings and reductions. Throughout 1965 and 1966, the Natzler’s produced 300 miniatures, each about an inch in diameter and height. This particular miniature was one of nineteen applied with Otto’s customized green crystalline glaze. M.H. de Young Memorial Museum. The Ceramic Work of Gertrud and Otto Natzler.

TONY ROSENTHAL IN LOS ANGELES

Bernard (Tony) Rosenthal (1914-2009), known for his monumental public art sculptures, employed an abstract expressionist style to create sculptures of wood, steel, bronze, iron, and aluminum. In 1967, Rosenthal was bestowed the honor of creating Alamo, the first public outdoor sculpture commissioned by New York City, which still sits opposite Cooper Union in Manhattan. However, from 1946 to 1960, Rosenthal had been quite prolific as a sculptor of public art structures and smaller-scale works where he lived in Los Angeles. In 1946, influenced by Charles and Ray Eames to relocate, Rosenthal began exhibiting his work in west coast galleries to much acclaim. In the next few years, Rosenthal began teaching sculpture at UCLA while creating public art structures for buildings throughout Los Angeles, including Computer Symbols for IBM’s western headquarters and a fountain for Robinson’s department store in Beverly Hills. Fountain (1952), a graceful bronze composition of flowing sea plants and open space, represents Rosenthal’s style at the time, which is continued in The Three Kings. In the November 1953 issue of Arts & Architecture, the magazine showcased his studio on the cover and ran a full spread chronicling his most recent work. The author described The Three Kings as “an adventure in space…lyric with the gaiety and gravity of a superbly wrought ballet”. This sculpture was exhibited at the Catherine Viviano Gallery in New York City where it was purchased in 1953. Albee, Edward, and Sam Hunter. Tony Rosenthal. New York: Rizzoli, 1999. Print.

COY HOWARD & MAX PALEVSKY In 1988 when Max Palevsky asked architect Coy Howard to renovate his 1928 Beverly Hills Italianate villa, it was Howard’s most expansive commission to date. After moving to Los Angeles to complete his graduate studies in architecture at UCLA, Howard stayed on as a teacher and began his career as a designer and architect. Palevsky and Howard had become acquainted through their involvement with the design of the Museum of Contemporary Art and additionally, Howard had advised Palevsky in some of his collecting endeavors. According to Aaron Betsky, Coy Howard’s approach to the Palevsky house “is clearly related to an understanding among the ‘third-generation modernists’…that they needed [to create] an aesthetic that delighted in the sensuality of the unfinished.” The house is an experimentation of forms emerging from an existing structure. Howard even taught himself woodworking in order to create furnishings for the home’s interior. Betsky, Aaron. Three California Houses: The Homes of Max Palevsky. New York: Rizzoli, 2002. Print.

VENINI: THE RECENT YEARS Established early in the 1920s, Venini & Co. produced some of the most beautiful and innovative glass sculptures of the 20th century. As the company’s reputation as a leader in artisan glass grew, they began collaborating with Gio Ponti and Fulvio Bianconi in the 1950s. Venini glass was beginning to be exhibited in museums all over the world, including New York’s Museum of Modern Art. The 1990s and 2000s, the later years of Venini glass designs, were marked by a vigorous redirection to the pioneering methods that established the company. Contemporary artists such as Alessandro Mendini, Laura Diaz de Santillana, and Ettore Sottsass began producing provocative designs with Venini & Co. History of Venini. Venini & C. Glass, 2010.

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 March 16th collection & storage fees will begin incurring.

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 20% if payment by cash, check or bank wire is received by March 16th. The buyer’s premium will not be discounted for internet bidding (27.5%) or payment by credit card. (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 9.75% 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.

Absentee/Phone bids are on a first come first serve 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 is payment is not made in accordance with any of these conditions of sale.

ESTIMATES & RESERVES

GUARANTEE

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.

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 MARCH 16TH. All property remaining after March 16th will be removed and stored in an off-site storage facility at the cost of the buyer. Purchases not removed by March 16th 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, MARCH 5TH by 5:00 p.m. via fax to (323) 904-1954. 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 see if your bids were successful. All successful absentee bids should be notified by phone by March 8th. 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 experts 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 fees, attorney’s fees and other costs.
