Estate-to-wall. You may or may not have noticed a trend in contemporary cuisine that has taken hold

across the country known as farm-to-table, which brings to mind a parallel in the art and design world. If the food on your dinner plate can arrive via the most direct route from a farmer's field, then it will use fewer resources, support local economies, cut out middlemen, and create less waste. It can also be picked later, presumably closer to when it’s freshest. At LAMA, we have been increasingly offering fresh picked art and design from estates on the West Coast and bringing them directly to your home for over 20 years. Unlike big supermarket auctions that have dozens of departments to churn out an obscene amount of dealer inventory, we represent the best material that can be sourced locally and from original owners, estate professionals, and regional pickers. Many of these sources do not have the ability to market their goods directly, so LAMA has become a kind of co-op for getting material directly to the collector. Our most recent crop of fresh works comes from the Estate of Ruth and Dalzell Hatfield. Key figures in the development of the Los Angeles art scene, Ruth and Dalzell are responsible for exhibiting the works of major European artists in America, often for the first time. The works represented from this estate come directly from Ruth and Dalzell’s personal collection, which amount to over 40 lots of European, American, and Latin American paintings, prints, ceramics, and glass, many of which were acquired directly from the artists themselves. Take for example the Millard Sheets painting, The King’s Tent (1928). Ruth and Dalzell Hatfield acquired this painting directly from Sheets in 1928 for their own residence. When Ruth passed away in 1984, the painting went into storage and is only now coming onto the market for the very first time in 85 years. It is merely one of the 40 lots that have been packed away unseen for decades. In addition to fostering the careers of local artists, the duo brought countless European artists – Picasso, Cézanne, Monet, Gauguin, Rouault, Kandinsky – to the attention of Angelinos. Their tireless promotion of Picasso’s La Suite Vollard would see them sell several complete sets and hundreds of individual impressions. The 16 lots of Picasso etchings in this sale are among the very last examples to be sold by the keeper of the suite, Baron Henri Petiet. And, because Ruth was partial to deep royal blues, it makes sense that she would keep some of the best works of this color that came through their hands, including Emil Nolde's painting Amaryllis and Alfredo Ramos Martínez' Flores Tropicales (c. 1930). In addition to Ramos Martínez, we have a very strong selection of Latin American works. Nearly 40 lots in all, each comes to the market from fresh Southern California sources including the Los Angeles County Museum of Art. The Pedro Coronel oil on canvas, Untitled (1981), was painted in Paris during his most color-obsessed period and is a masterwork from the Generación de la Ruptura (The Breakaway Generation). This work reminds me of how many artists and designers of the 20th century did not so much reject their country's past as much as infuse the cultural dynamics into a modern sensibility. Coronel and Tamayo were to Mexico what Nakashima and Noguchi were to Japan, Wegner and Jacobsen to Denmark. As for decorative arts, this sale includes an important collection of Natzler ceramics, which is being offered for the first time in half a century. This collection of 14 works comes directly from the collection of Leopold and Patricia Hirschfeldt, close friends of Gertrud & Otto Natzler and avid ceramic collectors. These jewel-like works were handpicked by Otto Natzler himself and were included in several important exhibitions and catalogues. If your taste for art favors the iconic, let me recommend the $ (Quadrant) (1982) duo by Andy Warhol, or perhaps the proto-Pop masterpiece by Larry Rivers titled Valentine Painting (1959), a rare offering from the artist's most desirable period - both of which are being sold by owners who acquired them when almost new. With over 200 lots being sold for the very first time, you will see that LAMA, through experience and reputation, continues to bring fresh material from local estates to your wall. The aforementioned highlights exemplify this practice, and we feel that the consumer benefits from knowing where their art comes from. Indeed, like farm-to-table, the consumer can feel more connected to the artworks knowing that they are essentially buying the love, care, and meaning that inspired the original owners to acquire these works. LAMA provides a generous helping of expertise, context, and some curating, but you can provide these pieces a home. PETER LOUGHREY, DIRECTOR

NATZLER CERAMICS from the HIRSCHFELDT COLLECTION On Sunday morning, July 30, 1933, Otto Natzler (1908-2007) prayed for rain. Two days prior, his friend Hans Amon had brought his sister Gertrud (1908-1971) to Otto’s apartment for a few minutes before going out for the night. Gertrud had mentioned that if it rained on Sunday, she would like to go to her parents’ summerhouse to relax with the family. She left a few minutes later, and according to Otto, “Though I had hardly exchanged a word with Gertrud, I was terribly interested in seeing her again.” He accepted a longstanding invitation from Hans to join them at the summerhouse. Come Sunday, the rain fell, and Otto was off to the countryside. The young Austrians enjoyed each other’s company, and on their train ride back to the city, Gertrud told Otto about the pottery courses she started a few weeks prior. Three days later, Gertrud brought Otto a 20-pound slab of clay. Intrigued, and eager for any excuse to see Gertrud again, he made a few sculptures and a mask. Gertrud’s teacher was impressed enough to invite him to take classes at his studio. Otto quickly realized that his weakness was Gertrud’s gift: forming the clay. She displayed incredible prowess, a harmony of hands and material. Otto remembers the first bowl she gave him: “That bowl had no resemblance to any ceramic I had known before – I love that pot and Gertrud gave it to me.” Fortunately, Otto was fascinated with the liquid compounds that formed a glaze once fired. Beginners in ceramics, their relationship blossomed as they discovered their separate skills could be combined. They rented their own studio, spent a year experimenting with forms and glazes, and started selling their ceramics in Vienna shops, eventually becoming successful enough to support themselves financially. They won the Silver Medal at the 1937 World Exposition in Paris, and even had their first solo exhibition in Vienna. One year later, as Nazi tanks rolled into Vienna, the Natzlers emigrated to Los Angeles with nothing but their wheel and kiln. Upon their arrival in Los Angeles, the Natzlers were embraced by the community and instantly recognized as masters in their field. Throughout the 1950s and 60s, Gertrud and Otto honed their craft, innovating forms and glazes, constantly inching closer to perfection. The introduction to their 1966 Los Angeles County Museum of Art retrospective exhibition catalogue,

PATRICIA & LEOPOLD HIRSCHFELDT

“The Ceramic Work of Gertrud and Otto Natzler,” reads, “They appeared with us each of the first five years they worked here, in the Museum exhibitions of 1939-43. And in 1944 we presented a one-man, or one-family show of Natzler ceramics.” Additional career retrospectives followed, including “The Ceramic Work of Gertrud and Otto Natzler” at the M.H. de Young Memorial Museum in San Francisco in 1971 and “Form and Fire: Natzler Ceramics 1939-1972” at the Renwick Gallery of the Smithsonian Institution in 1973. Close friends of the Natzlers, Leopold and Patricia Hirschfeldt lent their impressive collection of ceramics to each of these retrospectives. In 1947 while vacationing in Switzerland with his brother, the young Swede Leo Hirschfeldt met a beautiful Canadian girl named Patricia, who had been traveling in Europe for the past six months. They had an instant connection, and three years later they were married in Los Angeles. With the money from Leo’s successful seismic engineering firm, the couple bought their home – a bungalow with hand-carved ceilings designed by a Mexican architect – on South Carmelina Avenue in Brentwood in 1955. During numerous trips to the desert, they became interested in Navaho and Zuni pottery, and Leo would return from family visits in Stockholm with sets of miniature pottery. As their enthusiasm for ceramics grew, the Hirschfeldts became good friends with the Natzlers. Through this friendship, the couple amassed an impressive collection of bowls and pots, including a group of rare miniatures that Gertrud could only form with her fingertips when she developed an elbow inflammation. She produced these miniatures for only one year, from 1965-66. In addition to “Form and Fire,” these miniatures were featured in “Masterpieces on a Small Scale” at Bullock’s Gallery on Wilshire in 1966. This diverse collection of Natzler ceramics includes brilliant glazes and delicate forms, and spans one of the most productive and successful decades of the Natzlers’ career. Natzler, Gertrud & Otto.

“This small bowl demonstrates vividly Gertrud’s approach to form. The angular shape is softened by the treatment of the base 'flowing' into the main body of the bowl and the slightly curving lip balancing the base. The use of my favorite gray celadon glaze was rewarded by extreme luck in the accidental happenings of the fire - very complementary tracery pattern of melt fissures, 'skinning' of the glaze and smoke marks.” - OTTO NATZLER (TAYLOR 54)

FRANCISCO ZÚÑIGA Francisco Zúñiga (1912-1998) was born José Jesús Francisco Zúñiga Chavarría in a small suburb of San Jose, Costa Rica. By the age of 13, Zúñiga assisted his father in the studio by whittling slabs of wood for Santos, traditional religious sculptures of saints and angels for local clients and churches. The European Colonial style in which his father rendered these holy figures clashed with Francisco’s aspiration to depict veritable and humanistic forms. Seeking further training, Zúñiga enrolled at the School of Fine Arts in 1927, followed by a move from his native Costa Rica to Mexico City in 1936. While in Mexico, Zúñiga studied ancient artifacts at local museums. The delicately rounded yet stoic forms of Pre-Columbian idols intrigued the artist and confirmed his desire to refine his sculpting skills. He abandoned painting in 1937 by enrolling in the Direct School of Carving (later known as the School of Painting and Sculpture) where he stayed as a faculty member for over thirty years. In 1958 he was awarded the first prize in sculpture from the Instituto Nacional de Belles Artes y Literatura at the Palacio de Belles Artes in Mexico. In Mujer Envuelta con Rebozo (1978), the artist shows his mastery in deriving sentiment from a figure made of impenetrable bronze. The woman is crouched and enveloped head to toe by a traditional shawl. Although only her face and hand is exposed, it is enough to convey a sense of deep introspection. The woman’s face is weathered with a series of crevices that form as wrinkles around the curves of her nose, lips, and eyes. To Zúñiga she represents not only an anonymous Mexican woman but also a holy figure full of power that could challenge any traditional Santos. Although the artist ceased to paint he frequently drew and sketched, as he deemed it significant to the formation of all his sculptural works: “Various sketches sensed as sculptures help me to create three-dimensional forms. I am particularly careful of the contours of objects, their projections and depressions, their rhythm of composition, their structure which creates tensions in the interplay of masses in which the play of light and shadows define the contrasts and sinuosities; in which the forms emerge in their full monumentality.” In Desnudo Sentado (1969) a large-scale work on paper, the viewer is again presented with the lone female figure seated on a small plinth. She is sage-like and resigned, a contemporary version of the curvaceous Pre-Columbian idols the artist loved. Her full-figured form bows and undulates with the fluid lines of tawny red and orange that outline her frame. Although the women Zúñiga renders may be anonymous, they are unified by the artist’s hand in elevating the ordinary woman into the realm of the spiritual and sacred. Hickman, Ronald.

PEDRO CORONEL Painter and sculptor Pedro Coronel (1922-1985) was associated with a new generation of artists dedicated to revitalizing Mexican art through personal expression and universal aesthetics. Born in Zacatecas, Coronel studied under the guidance of Diego Rivera at "La Esmeralda," the National School of Painting, Sculpture, and Printmaking, before settling in Paris shortly after a visit in 1946. For the next twenty years, he divided his time between Mexico City and Paris, where he studied with Victor Brauner and Constantin Brâncusi. Sculpture rapidly gave way to oil painting, and by the 1960s, Coronel was regularly exhibiting his works in France, Mexico, and the United States. As Coronel began incorporating elements of his pre-Hispanic heritage amidst his abstract compositions, he soon became associated with the Generación de la Ruptura (The Breakaway Generation), a group of young artists who criticized Mexican muralism in favor of universal painting styles such as Abstract Expressionism and Cubism. Since this movement focused on personal expression as a rejection of the status quo in Mexican painting, their individual styles varied greatly. They were unified, however, in their stance against government funded nationalistic art so that they could expose the rich landscape of Mexican art to an international audience. Influenced by his Breakaway Generation contemporaries, chiefly his friend Rufino Tamayo, Coronel transitioned from figurative painting to abstract works with indigenous themes, ending his career with a quest for intense color. Untitled (1981) – painted in Paris four years before his death – achieves a pure spectrum of pink and red forms in harmony with a brown background. Similar examples of this work were included in the 2005 Coronel retrospective at the Museo de Arte Moderno in Mexico City. “Latin American Visionaries: Pedro Coronel.” AnitaShapolskyGallery.com.

GEORGE WASHINGTON MAHER Stained glass designs formed an integral part of George Washington Maher’s architectural commissions. Native flowers became Maher’s primary visual device and were carefully selected to represent each of his clients. Maher’s approach in employing a single motif as a unifying visual emblem within an architectural scheme reached its zenith in 1912 with the design for the home of E.L. King, known as Rockledge, where the tiger lily became the project's motif. One of the important key examples in the development of Maher’s “motif-rhythm” theory can be found in the architect's design for the John Rath residence, 1907. In this instance a poppy native to the region was selected, and as well as being incorporated into the patterning for the leaded glass panes in this design, also features in the design of the leaded windows in the dining room.

118 DIRK VAN ERP EARLY VASE Studio, executed c. 1911 Patinated, hand-hammered copper Stamped windmill motif “Dirk van Erp” and faint partially erased stamp “D’Arcy Gaw” 10.25” x 10” diameter Dirk van Erp opened his first shop in Oakland, California in 1908, but by 1910 had moved to a new location in San Francisco. During this first year in San Francisco van Erp began a design partnership with D’Arcy Gaw. This partnership terminated in 1911, and as a result van Erp attempted to remove all traces of Miss Gaw’s name from the Windmill hallmark on all existing inventory. Provenance:

130 PETER BEHRENS PRE-PRODUCTION TEA KETTLE Model no. 42417 Allgemeine Elektricitäts-Gesellschaft (AEG) Bingwerke, designed 1908, this example executed c. 1908 Silver-plated copper, cane Stamped mark “AEG BW” and numbered “42417” 8.75” x 7.5” x 6” From a selection of different design components such as the cover, finial, shape, and texture, Behrens had initially intended to offer as many as 81 different kettle designs to the public; however in eventuality only 30 design variations were ever offered for sale. The design of this cover and finial is not one of the 30 eventual production examples. It is possible that this example was one of the initial working models. A circular incision was made below the back of the handle and the circular fillet was welded back into place. It appears that the kettle body was mocked up to show where the electric socket heating element would be located. Following this use as a factory model rather than be discarded, the kettle was repaired and retained. Literature:

ILONKA KARASZ Ilonka Karasz (1886-1981) was the first woman admitted to study at the Royal Academy of Arts and Crafts in her native Budapest, before migrating to New York in 1913 to begin a career as an artist and designer. Karasz established the Design Group Inc., a guild of designers and craftsmen that made toys, lamps, wallpaper and various decorative items. An illustrator for several children’s books, her most noted drawings were for The New Yorker; spanning a tremendous period from 1924 to 1973 in which she executed 186 covers. Her designs and drawings can be found in the permanent collections of the Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Cooper-Hewitt National Design Museum.

HENRYK STAZEWSKI Although he was in his early sixties, 1957 marked the beginning of a new age for the Polish artist and art theorist Henryk Stazewski (1894-1988). In that year, he was featured in the monumental “Précurseurs de l’art abstrait en Pologne,” the first post-war exhibition to include Polish Constructivist and Avant-garde works, at Galerie Denise René in Paris. He showed alongside artists and friends including Kazimir Malevich and Wladyslaw Strzeminski. Leading up to this point, Henryk had been forgotten for years. Most of his paintings had been destroyed during the World War II bombings of Warsaw. The Nazi and Soviet invasions of Poland in 1939 threw Henryk into a state of shock. He no longer cared to explore his thoughts on the principles of color and shape, as he often did when he was co-editor for the radical and avant-garde magazine Blok which he helped organize in 1924. It was not until the late 1950s that Stazewski experienced his awakening. At a frenzied pace, Stazewski began work on a series of abstract and geometric reliefs. In the first issue of Praesens (1926), another quarterly where the artist served as editor, Stazewski writes, “The rapprochement between painting and architecture has been brought about by a new awareness of the inseparable nature of space, colour, and matter. The impact which colour exerts on shapes in the sense of being able to alter their dimensions, creates a whole new treasury of architectural instruments…these are the main foundations on which the great style of modern art is being built…” TEST TEST TEST Tied to his powerful manifestos from the mid-1920s, Untitled (Collage) from 1961 is a miraculous threedimensional work that not only illustrates but also validates his words. Razor-thin lines of white and black paint are meticulously applied to barrel-like shapes mounted to a rectangular board replete with lines shooting across vertical, horizontal, and diagonal axes. If one looks closely, the lines appear to swell, throb, and twist with the shift of an eye. A stationary and nonrepresentational image becomes animated and vivid when the opposing lines of the backboard meet the forms placed at the center. Like the works of the De Stijl movement’s architect, Theo van Doesburg, Stazewski’s collage promotes the idea that modern art need not be symmetrical, and that color is an organic form of expression which possesses the distinct ability to distort and alter forms when applied. Similar relief works from this critical period in the artist’s career reside in the permanent collections of major institutions such as the Brooklyn Museum and the Tate Gallery.

THE ESTATE OF RUTH & DALZELL HATFIELD

17 7


"AND IN THE END, WHEN THE DEALER DIES, IF THEY SHOULD TURN HIM UPSIDE DOWN AND SHAKE HIM, ALL THEY WILL USUALLY FIND ARE A FEW COINS, A LIFE INSURANCE POLICY AND 300 PAINTINGS." - DALZELL HATFIELD

Located in the legendary Ambassador Hotel on Wilshire Boulevard in Mid-Wilshire, the Dalzell Hatfield Galleries offered Los Angeles’ most impressive collection of paintings, sculpture, etchings, drawings, and decorative art from modern French, German, and American masters. Ruth and Dalzell Hatfield are responsible for introducing Los Angeles to some of the most celebrated artists of the 20th century. Their list of artists who were exhibited for the first time in Los Angeles is astounding: Édouard Manet, Claude Monet, Paul Gauguin, Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec, Paul Cézanne, Georges Rouault, Pierre-August Renoir, and Wassily Kandinsky, among others. The Hatfields also represented American and Mexican artists such as Gertrud & Otto Natzler, Millard Sheets, Russell Cowles, Pedro Coronel, and Alfredo Ramos Martínez. From the late 1920s to the early 70s, the Hatfields dedicated their lives to exhibiting and selling modern art, in the process educating Angelinos about cutting edge works of genius coming from Europe, Latin America, and the United States.


"IF A YOUNG PERSON CAME INTO MY GALLERY AND ASKED HOW TO GO ABOUT BECOMING A DEALER, I WOULD FIRST HAVE TO FIND OUT WHAT HIS BASIC CONCEPTS ARE, HOW MUCH MONEY HE HAS TO INVEST AND HOW MUCH TIME HE WANTS TO GIVE, BECAUSE IN THIS BUSINESS YOU GIVE YOUR ENTIRE LIFE." - DALZELL HATFIELD


Dalzell Hatfield’s fascination with art began at an early age. When he was 13, Dalzell earned his allowance by taking books back to Carnegie Library in his hometown of Pittsburgh. On his way, he would browse through the art gallery, captivated with what he saw. A few years later, he helped galleries organize traveling art exhibits for such artists as Winslow Homer and George Bellows. During his travels, he stopped in Los Angeles and realized that the rapidly expanding city would serve as the best place to sell art outside of New York. Dalzell initially opened up a small gallery in Chicago; however, the emerging gallerist was forced to put everything on hold when he provided service to the Navy during World War I. He went into business with Earl Stendahl in 1925, joining together as the short-lived Stendahl-Hatfield Galleries located in the Ambassador Hotel. Later that year, he opened his gallery in Los Angeles on Seventh Avenue near MacArthur Park, and one year later he married Ruth, who became an integral part of their growing business. After nine successful years, the gallery closed in 1934, but Dalzell, an expert on modern art and design, traveled the country as a guest curator and lecturer for major galleries and museums, including the Corcoran Gallery of Art in Washington, D.C. and the National Academy of Design in New York. The couple also took numerous extended trips to Europe to acquire the latest works in European art. They reopened the Dalzell Hatfield Galleries in 1939 at the Ambassador Hotel, establishing itself as one of the most prosperous galleries in Los Angeles. In the 1950s, Dalzell also operated the Barbizon-Plaza Galleries at the Barbizon-Plaza Hotel at 101 W. 58th Street in New York. Dalzell was active in the art world for nearly 40 years. Not only was he instrumental in setting up the first major American exhibitions of Renoir, Gauguin, and other post-Impressionist European artists, but he also exposed and encouraged regional California artists, his most noted discovery being Millard Sheets. Over the course of 24 years at the Ambassador, the gallery held more than 250 exhibitions. Dalzell passed away in 1963, yet the gallery maintained a steady output of modern exhibitions for another twenty years until Ruth's death in 1984. Ruth and Dalzell left behind a vast collection of art, in addition to a legacy of helping to establish Los Angeles as a modern art sanctuary.

MILLARD SHEETS Artist, designer, and educator, Millard Sheets (1907-1989) is responsible for some of the most iconic buildings in the Los Angeles area. He championed the incorporation of artwork into architectural plans, resulting in the Scottish Rites Temple, dozens of Home Savings and Loan banks, and the Garrison Theater, each of these lined with mosaics, stained glass, murals, sculpture, and furniture all created by Sheets. Originally from Pomona, Sheets graduated from the Chouinard Art Institute in 1929, having already established a reputation as a California Style watercolor painter. Beginning in 1932, Sheets became the assistant head of the art department at Scripps College, and only four years later he was named the full-time head. It was here that Sheets explored innovative ways to integrate various art disciplines such as architecture, art, dance, and music. Additionally, as commissions for murals, frescos, and buildings piled up, Sheets maintained an impressive and successful output of watercolors and oils. In 1926 during Sheets’ first year at Chouinard, the Dalzell Hatfield Gallery opened on 7th Street near MacArthur Park, just a few blocks away from the art school. Opting to save his money for paint supplies rather than lunch, Sheets would frequent the gallery to view the latest in European art, including his first Matisse and van Gogh. One year later, after seeing the young painter’s works in local exhibitions, Hatfield offered to represent Sheets, explaining, “We’ve seen it [Sheets’ painting], and we think that you have potential. We don’t know whether it’s going to be practical to handle it, but if you would put everything that you’ve got into it for five years, we’ll do the same.” His first one man exhibition opened at the Dalzell Hatfield Gallery one year later in 1929, and the day the exhibition opened, a telegram arrived announcing that Sheets had won the $1,750 prize for his painting Goat Ranch (1929) he entered in a national competition at the Witte Memorial Museum in San Antonio, Texas. These events marked the beginning of a 30-year relationship in which Hatfield sold at least 3,000 of his paintings and prints, “practically all that I’ve produced,” according to Sheets. Early in his career while he was still a student at Chouinard, Sheets painted primarily in oils. The King’s Tent (1928), one of his earliest oil paintings, displays a sophistication of color, brush stroke, and composition for such a young artist and remains a precursor to some of his most famous paintings, Angel’s Flight (1931) in LACMA’s permanent collection and Family Flats (1933-34) in the Smithsonian Museum of American Art’s permanent collection. For The King’s Tent, Sheets skipped class to attend the election of a new Gypsy queen at the Whittier Narrows, just east of Los Angeles. Over 1,400 Gypsies set up tents that remained for six weeks. Sheets recalls, “I went out there with these big canvases, scared to death, because I was so young and some of these people looked pretty tough to me. At first they didn’t particularly like to have me around, but they became intrigued.” Sheets eventually painted 15 canvases while sitting in the middle of the Gypsy encampment. That same year, Sheets’ professor at Chouinard encouraged him to paint in watercolor, a medium he quickly mastered. One of these watercolors, Below Half Moon Bay (c. 1935), was exhibited at the “17th International Exhibition of Watercolors” at the Art Institute of Chicago in 1938 and again in 1941 at the Faulkner Memorial Gallery of Art in Santa Barbara. These exhibitions were regular occurrences for Sheets thanks to Dalzell Hatfield, a visionary who fostered the modern art scene in Los Angeles by taking chances on young, talented artists such as Millard Sheets.

EMIL NOLDE German Expressionist painter Emil Nolde (1867-1956) cherished spontaneity as the most essential element in his creative process. One of the preeminent painters of the 20th century, Nolde created oil paintings, watercolors, and prints with the vitality of a poet: “I try to avoid all thinking. A vague concept of color and luminosity suffices, and the picture evolves during the act of painting.” Throughout the first three decades of the century, Nolde enjoyed considerable recognition with numerous exhibitions throughout Germany and Europe. Beginning in 1933, however, the Nazi Party, having seen some of Nolde’s more controversial works, fired him from his post at the Akademie der Künste and then ordered his paintings removed from German museums. In 1937, the government officially forbade him from painting, which culminated in the embarrassing “Degenerate Art” exhibition and the confiscation of 1,052 of his works. He retreated to his farm at Seebüll on the German-Danish border, longing to continue painting. Fearful that the pungent oil paints and turpentine would arouse suspicion, Nolde revisited watercolors, a medium well suited for his instinctive and rapid style of painting. He completed hundreds of watercolors in these years of expulsion, later named the Unpainted Pictures. The aging painter had previously used watercolor many times throughout his long career: a mountain sunrise on 3.5 x 4 inch canvas in 1894; Sunset from 1908, painted using pieces of ice to form watercolor crystals; Hamburg harbor scenes in 1910 and Berlin night life in 1911; quick sketches on his trip to the German South Seas in 1913-14; and the subjects he revisited most often, flowers. Nolde’s love of flowers was lifelong and heartfelt, evidenced by his shift in personality in their presence. He was known to become “rhapsodic at the sight of his garden in bloom,” and in his autobiography he extolled their life cycle: “the purity of their colors… their shooting up, blossoming, glowing, bringing joy, drooping, fading…and ending on the rubbish tip.” At the two homes they bought, Utenwarf and Seebüll, Nolde and his wife Ada planted meticulously designed microclimates to ensure longer blooms, thus more time and subjects for Nolde to paint. Nolde credited his diligent study of flowers to his brilliant understanding of color. He began painting gardens in oil, but upon his return from the South Seas, he focused on the blooms of single species, many of these painted in watercolor. Amaryllis features the plants in full bloom against a blue background, allowing the viewer to focus on Nolde’s ability to preserve the character of the flowers – hues dance from soft yellow, pure white, and cream to crimson, pink, and blue all within one bloom. Similar floral watercolors from the same era reside in the permanent collections of the Philadelphia Museum of Art, the Norton Simon Museum, and the Nolde Museum at Seebüll and Berlin. King, Averil.

RUSSELL COWLES Equipped with the discipline of a scholar and a vast painting vocabulary, American painter Russell Cowles (1887-1979) produced brilliant landscapes in oil and watercolor. Originally from Iowa, Cowles studied painting in Paris and Rome, and upon returning to the United States in 1920, he exhibited his work at the Metropolitan Museum in New York. Cowles had a deep respect for the French masters Cézanne and Gaugin, though he filtered what he learned in Europe through a modern intelligence for color and form. Eager to expand his artistic knowledge, he traveled to Asia where he studied traditional Chinese painting with a Chinese master, and in Bali, he experimented with semi-abstract compositions. He eventually settled in Santa Fe, New Mexico, where he completed some landscapes of the Southwest, “painted with a profound appreciation of the exciting architectural aspects and exhilarating color of the country itself.” Wherever he traveled, Cowles demonstrated his technical prowess combined with patience for the subject: “When an artist sees something he wants to paint, his first step should be to look – to look long and sensitively – to feel what nature has to say.” The painting Nova Scotia Morning (1948), which was featured in the 1948 issue of LIFE magazine, portrays the daily routine of vacationers and locals, rendered in the delicate and capricious light of the eastern seaboard.

PABLO PICASSO: LA SUITE VOLLARD The most distinguished and researched set of etchings in the immense output of Pablo Picasso’s career, La Suite Vollard presents a deeply personal glimpse into Picasso’s life between 1930 and 1937. Amounting to 100 etchings in total, the suite was produced at a critical juncture in his life, both emotionally and artistically. Picasso was rekindling his interest in sculpture while inciting a passionate affair with his young lover and muse Marie-Thérèse Walter, resulting in a tension between “the rival claims of making art and making love.” While there is no strict order to the suite, the art historian Hans Bollinger categorized the plates into five main themes – Battle of Love, the Sculptor’s Studio, Rembrandt, the Minotaur, and the Blind Minotaur – in addition to 27 miscellaneous plates and three portraits of Vollard. The group of 100 started with eleven that Picasso, or most likely Vollard, had chosen from those made between 1930 and 1932. Picasso then produced about 40 plates in six weeks, and by 1936, he had produced 97. In 1937, Vollard convinced him to create an even 100 with three portrait etchings of Vollard himself. Picasso was a self-taught printmaker, but in his career he produced over 2,500 prints. La Suite Vollard shifts “from one state to another, from contemplative repose in the studio to brutal, animalistic violence, matched by changes in style from lucid crispness of line to aggressively worked plates.” The inclusion of this emotional turmoil, like most of his works, is characteristic of Picasso’s autobiographical style: “The paintings, finished or not, are the pages of my journal, and as such they are valid.” Each work is meticulously dated with the year, month, and day. At this period in his life, Picasso’s relationship with his wife, the dancer Olga Khokhlova, was disintegrating. He was exasperated by their differences in lifestyle and by 1925, the apartment was divided into separate living quarters – the downstairs pristine and bourgeois, the upstairs a frenzied artist’s studio. In 1927, Picasso began an affair with Marie-Thérèse Walter, a beautiful young girl with an athletic build and Grecian profile, the perfect muse for Picasso’s etchings and sculptures. The Sculptor’s Studio group of etchings features Picasso the sculptor contemplating his work as well as his model, the sculptor’s dilemma in attempting to create a perfect version of reality (Le Repos du Sculpteur et la Sculpture Surréaliste). Picasso weaves mythology throughout the suite, reimagining the events of his life as a fantastical drama. Marie-Thérèse figures prominently as a sort of Venus, a classical beauty posing for Picasso the sculptor, the scene teetering on the verge of passionate submission. The scene often becomes violent, as in Le Viol and Le Viol II, expressions of emotional and ultimately physical obsession with the subject. He later becomes the Minotaur, half-man, half-bull, “whose power, pride and ferocity he regarded as corresponding to his own personality.” In Minotaure attaquant une Amazone, the beast is possessed by “sexual frenzy and unbridled passion,” yet in the etching Minotaure mourant, the Minotaur dying in an arena reaches out to Marie-Thérèse for aid, forgiveness, pity. The 16 etchings offered here represent each theme of the suite as well as every stage of Picasso’s emotional life, “the bullfight to the end.” Ambroise Vollard (1866-1939) was originally from a small French colony in the Indian Ocean called La Réunion. Trained as a lawyer, he opened a small gallery in 1893 where he championed the French painters Edouard Vuillard, Paul Gaugin, and Paul Cézanne with solo shows. Throughout the first two decades of the 20th century, Vollard’s business sense earned him considerable wealth. In addition to dealing in the most avant-garde artworks of the era, Vollard published numerous books with poetry and illustrations, working with artists such as Auguste Rodin, Pierre Bonnard, Georges Braque, Marc Chagall, and Georges Rouault. The relationship between Vollard and Picasso began in June 1901 when Vollard gave the young painter an exhibition in his gallery. In 1910, Vollard purchased the originals of five of Picasso’s sculptures, and throughout the 1920s, the two worked together to publish Picasso’s etchings that would precede in subject matter La Suite Vollard. Having died in a car accident as the suite was being completed in 1939, Vollard was unable to effectively market the works and the entire inventory was soon sold to Baron Henri Petiet, another Parisian dealer who would disseminate sets and single impressions for the next several decades. Picasso was known to sign the edition only sporadically from the 1950s through the late 1960s, and many examples show up today with little provenance and spurious signatures. The following 16 lots were purchased directly from Petiet by the Hatfield Gallery on September 19, 1973 and are unsigned, as many impressions from the suite were. Coppel, Stephen.

JACQUES LE CHEVALLIER Jacques Le Chevallier’s talent encompassed an unusually large breadth of genre, from illustrating, stained glass design, engraving, and lighting design. Following the conclusion of his studies at the École Nationale des Arts Supérieur Décoratifs in 1915, he joined the studio of stained glass artist Louis Barillet, with whom he would collaborate until 1945. Echos of the designer’s foundation in the visual arts can be found in this lamp (Model no. 43), with its harmonious architectural qualities of balance, proportion, and graphic silhouette. This particular lamp is a development of table lamp Model no. 3, which is primarily made of wood. This example, however, designated as Model no. 43, is constructed entirely from man-made materials of aluminum and Ebonite, a form of early plastic, resulting in a strong industrial aesthetic. The design was first presented at the influential XXIème Salon d’Automne, Paris, 1928, recognized as one of the key moments in the development of international modernism. The design’s machine aesthetic belies the fact that Le Chevallier’s lighting designs were only ever produced to order in small batches, and subsequently very few examples were ever created. Robert Mallet Stevens ordered three examples of this model for inclusion in the interior of the Delza Boutique, Rue de la Paix, Paris. Just one year later Le Chevallier would cement his reputation as one of Europe’s leading modernist designers in becoming one of the founding members of the Union des Artistes Modernes (U.A.M.), together with notable designers such as Robert Mallet-Stevens, Eileen Gray, Jean Prouvé, Louis Sognot and Charlotte Perriand.

TAMARA DE LEMPICKA Polish artist Tamara de Lempicka (1898-1980) immortalized the aesthetics of the Art Deco era with her paintings of nude women, Parisian socialites in luxury convertibles, European kings and queens, and the ethos of Paris in the 1920s. The French painter André Lhote described de Lempicka’s style as “soft Cubism,” a highly stylized and precise representation of the cultural and social elite with whom she associated. Originally from Warsaw, she met the lawyer Tadeusz de Lempicka at a ball in St. Petersburg while visiting her relatives, and upon marrying in 1916, de Lempicka immediately improved her social status. They moved to Paris in 1918 where she enrolled in art classes at the Academie Ranson. Under the instruction of André Lhote, she learned how to “skillfully merge modern forms of illustration with the great academic tradition,” resulting in “an agreeable form which would flatter the conservative tastes of the affluent bourgeoisie.” As she began showing her paintings in the Paris salons, de Lempicka received numerous commissions for portraits from affluent socialites. In these paintings, she depicted strong females – many of them nude – celebrating the freedom of the era, a lifestyle she enjoyed publicly, having many affairs with both men and women. While her marriage crumbled into divorce, her clients grew to include European royalty, and in 1934 after marrying a wealthy landowner from Eastern Europe, she moved to America and became the preferred portrait artist to Hollywood stars. After the war, de Lempicka’s reputation faded as she attempted to paint works in surrealist and expressionist styles. After her death in 1980, collectors recognized her as an Art Deco icon, and her work achieved a renaissance in popularity, culminating in numerous international exhibitions and retrospectives at the Royal Academy of Arts in London, 2004, the Accademia di Francia (Villa Medici) in Rome, 1994, and the Palacio de Bellas Artes in Mexico City, 2009.

407 BALTASAR LOBO TORSE AU SOLEIL

BALTASAR LOBO

1973 Patinated bronze #4 of 8 Susse Fondeur, Paris Incised signature “Lobo” with edition near base; incised foundry mark “Susse Fondeur Paris” near base; retains International Art Transport label inside sculpture Together with Lobo Galerie Nathan 1979 exhibition catalogue, signed and with drawing by the artist 17.25” x 19.5” x 7” (49.25” x 18” x 10” with base, not illustrated)

The Spanish sculptor Baltasar Lobo (1910-1993) found his voice in modern sculptural expressions of classical forms, namely the female figure. After briefly attending art school in Madrid, Lobo emigrated to Paris in 1939 following the Spanish Civil War. He worked as an assistant to the sculptor Henri Laurens and befriended fellow Spaniard Pablo Picasso. In 1945 he achieved his first major exhibition alongside Picasso, Matisse, and Utrillo at the Galerie Vendôme. His bronze, marble, and granite statues depicting mother and child and the female form received international acclaim, including numerous outdoor commissions in Spain, Austria, and Venezuela. Abstraction plays a significant role in his interpretations of the human form, likely influenced by equal parts classical tradition and his modern contemporaries. Many of his works are displayed publicly throughout Spain and reside in the permanent collections of European and Latin American museums inlcuding the Museo Baltasar Lobo in Zamora, Spain.

LARRY RIVERS One of the first artists to combine the spontaneity of Abstract Expressionism with the everyday objects of Pop Art, Larry Rivers (1923-2002) developed a daringly idiosyncratic artistic style that allowed him to explore political, sexual, and historical themes. Born in the Bronx, Rivers briefly served in the US Army during World War II, and upon his return he established a successful career as a jazz saxophonist in New York clubs. He was introduced to art through the painter Jane Freilicher in the summer of 1945, and shortly thereafter enrolled in the Hans Hoffman School to study painting. Perhaps due to his jazz background, he was initially drawn to Abstract Expressionism’s emotional immediacy, but upon viewing the Pierre Bonnard exhibit at the Museum of Modern Art in 1948, Rivers began incorporating figurative subjects in his works. While his first one-man show featured paintings heavily influenced by Bonnard, contemporaries such as Willem de Kooning saw a talented newcomer unafraid to incorporate abstraction. In 1953, the Museum of Modern Art acquired his most ambitious work to date, Washington Crossing the Delaware (1953), a “controversial reinterpretation of a banal historical subject.” Beginning in 1953, Rivers spent a productive four years in Southampton, Long Island with his two sons and mother-in-law Berdie. During this time he developed a figurative style characterized by a marriage of “drawing and color in a fluent harmony,” resulting in a renewed understanding of the human form that would last throughout his career. Paintings from this period – including a nude study of his elderly mother-in-law, Double Portrait of Berdie (1955) – earned him both approbation and criticism. By 1957, the year Berdie passed away, Rivers’ paintings were becoming personal allegories, often featuring his entire family in multiple poses amidst rich spots of color and blank canvas. He was evolving as a figurative painter, yet his tendency toward abstraction reentered his artistic vocabulary. 1958-59 was a short-lived period when Rivers returned to Abstract Expressionism. He also returned to his beloved literary and artistic circle, which included the poets Frank O’Hara and John Ashbery. “The strokes got laid down like bursts of talk, sometimes simultaneously with them,” recalls Ashbery, who described Rivers’ paintings from this era as “very much an extension of his daily life,” which included his lover and muse, Maxine Groffsky, who at the time was in control of the New York literary circle. Like de Kooning’s women, she exuded confidence and decadence. Valentine Painting (1959) features Groffsky – who Rivers nicknamed “Miss New Jersey” – as an obfuscated blur sitting in his Second Avenue loft. At the center of the chaotic brush strokes resides the focal point – a shimmering white bracelet rendered in metallic paint, enclosed within thin black lines forming a heart. A little over a year later, their intense four-year relationship abruptly ended, and Groffsky became the Paris editor of the Paris Review, a position she held for many years. A similar series of paintings called Miss New Jersey were exhibited at the Whitney Museum of American Art in 1961. These were some of the final works – essential to his transition – before Rivers began incorporating non-traditional materials and commercial subject matter to create the three-dimensional proto-Pop constructions of the next decade.

MAGDALENA ABAKANOWICZ Polish artist Magdalena Abakanowicz (b. 1930) transcends medium by deftly transforming fiber and textiles into haunting figures that depict the various states of the human condition. Abakanowicz remained in Poland throughout the chaos of World War II and post-war communism, both eras influencing her art-making process and themes of her work. During her studies at Warsaw’s Academy of Fine Arts, Abakanowicz focused on drawing and painting, but quickly shifted her concentration to fabric and fiber tapestries, one of which was exhibited at the International Tapestry Biennale in 1962. Abakanowicz’s bold experiments with textiles – her three-dimensional Abakans (1960s) hang from the ceiling to create shadowy inner folds – were instrumental in elevating “weaving from a craft to an art form.” From the 60s onward, Abakanowicz forged unique methods of manipulating fiber to result in massive sculptural forms made from a combination of textiles and metal. In each of her sculptural cycles, repetition is essential in conveying the theme, and these repeated forms – Alterations: Heads (1973-75), Seated Figures (1974-79), and Backs (1976-82) – take on new meaning depending on the location. Abakanowicz thought that it was “extremely important” to travel to these exhibitions to prepare her works: “I arranged it, I gave to it the power, the climate, the whole atmosphere.” For Backs, “her first attempt to deal directly with the human figure,” Abakanowicz created a plaster mold of the human body and then formed burlap and rope against the plaster to create a rough shell of a seated figure. Hunched-over and hollow, the bodies are always exhibited facing in the same direction away from viewers. Upwards of 80 Backs in a group have been exhibited at once in various international locations, from the banks of a river in Poland to a hillside in South Korea. Cast in bronze in 2005, Backwards on Bench carries marks left by the burlap and rope that resemble “arteries, veins, and sinew, giving the impression that one is looking into the body.” Critics tend to associate the nameless, faceless Backs with Polish citizens rendered helpless at the hands of the post-WWII totalitarian regime, or victims of the Holocaust. Abakanowicz confirms and clarifies: “People who saw the Backs would ask: ‘Is it Auschwitz?’ ‘Is it a religious ceremony in Peru?’ ‘Is it a dance from the Ramayana?’ The answer to these questions is affirmative, because it speaks about the human condition in general.” During her retrospective at the Musée d’Art Moderne de la Ville de Paris in 1982, a viewer contemplating 80 Backs said to Abakanowicz, “I understood: the face can lie, the body cannot.” Abakanowicz, Magdalena.

DOUG OHLSON With the precision of a sculptor, painter Doug Ohlson (1936-2010) applied an expansive palette of colorful vertical bars to large canvases. In his native Iowa, Ohlson worked long days on the family farm below a spacious sky of changing colors. After earning his art degree at the University of Minnesota, he became the studio assistant to abstract painter Tony Smith at Hunter College in New York where he eventually joined the faculty in 1964. After successful shows at the Hudson River Museum and the Fischbach Gallery, Ohlson was included in the Museum of Modern Art exhibition “The Art of the Real: 1948-1968.” Throughout the 1970s and 80s, Ohlson shifted from strictly Hard Edge lines to softer transitions between swaths of color, resulting in a more layered abstraction, as seen in the 1987 acrylic on canvas, The Mighty Gus. Ohlson’s work can be found in the permanent collections of the Brooklyn Museum, the Whitney Museum of American Art, and the Metropolitan Museum of Art.

LLYN FOULKES Los Angeles artist and musician Llyn Foulkes (b. 1934) creates paintings, installations, and tableaux of biting social commentary, often utilizing a concoction of pop icons, American landscapes, and violent imagery. Foulkes was born in a small farming town in Washington State where he idolized Salvador Dali, the musician Spike Jones, and comedian Charlie Chaplin. After serving in the Korean War, Foulkes moved to Los Angeles to attend the Chouinard Art Institute and had his first exhibition at Ferus Gallery in 1959. Throughout the 1960s and 70s, his work ranged from melancholy assemblages and skillful American landscapes to his “bloody head” portraits. During this period, in addition to amassing international awards including the 1967 Prize for Painting at the Paris Biennale, Foulkes played drums in the bands City Lights and The Rubber Band, culminating in 1979 with his Machine, a one-man band constructed of car horns and percussion instruments, influenced by Stan Kenton, Gene Krupa, and Lionel Hampton. He continues to perform on the Machine to this day. The Hammer Museum recently exhibited Foulkes’ 50-year retrospective, “LLYN FOULKES,” which highlighted some of his most recent “narrative tableaux that combine painting with woodworking, found materials, and thick mounds of mixed media, seamlessly blended into the painted surface to create a remarkable illusion of depth.” Some taking years to complete, these tableaux tell a story of corporate America’s hijacking of art and creativity. The materials and subject matter refer back to some of Foulkes’ earliest paintings, The Flag (1962) and The Leg (1963), both of which incorporate lacquer and found text to create a shimmering symbology of letters, numbers, and ubiquitous symbols such as a cross. Foulkes’ work resides in the permanent collections of the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, the Whitney Museum of American Art, and the Norton Simon Museum. “LLYN FOULKES.” Hammer Exhibitions.

FRANK BOWERS Frank Howard Bowers (1905-1964) was an American painter and muralist born in California. He moved to Los Angeles during the Depression Era and was assigned to execute grand-scale murals for the WPA’s Federal Art Project as part of President Roosevelt’s New Deal program. Noteworthy commissions include a mural for the interior of the South Gate, California City Hall in 1941, and a series of murals for the Fruit Growers Exchange in Downtown Los Angeles (also known as the Sunkist Building, which has since been demolished) in the early 1930s. Aside from his involvement in the Federal Art Project he also leisurely painted several custom oil on canvas murals for bars and lounges in and around Long Beach and South Los Angeles. Some of the commissions were reportedly in exchange for his bar tab. This mural was executed for the interior of restaurateur Vivian Laird’s Restaurant and Jungle Room in Long Beach. Los Angelenos may find some of these tremendous murals in situ at the Veterans of Foreign Wars Hall and Buccaneer Lounge in Sierra Madre, Foc’sle Bar in Wilmington, and outside state lines at the Hard Hat Lounge in Las Vegas, Nevada.

RUT BRYK During the late 1930s and early 40s, the Arabia ceramics factory found an increasing demand for pictorial tiles and wall reliefs. In order to respond to this demand, in 1943, artistic director of Arabia, Kurt Eckholm hired the talented graduate student printmaker and artist Rut Bryk, protégé of acclaimed art teacher Arttu Brummer. Unlike the other members of the factory’s design department, Bryk had no prior experience in the study or practice in the field of applied arts. Her exceptional skills in printmaking translated perfectly into the design of tiles and wall reliefs, the zenith of which came in her design for a monumental architectural wall relief for the Rosenthal Factory in Germany, 1960. In 1945 Rut Bryk married Tapio Wirkkala, and the two began a long and fruitful period of intense creative collaboration. During this period, Bryk's artistic style began to move away from the figurative to the abstract, of which this panel is an esquisite example. Aav, Marianne.

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 October 23rd, 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 October 23rd. 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 October 23, 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.

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 OCTOBER 25TH. Purchases not removed by October 25th 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, October 12th by 5:00 p.m. (PST) via fax to (323) 904-1954 or scan and sent 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 October 15th. 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.

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 title, 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.

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.
