Guide for Prospective Buyers Buying at Auction The following pages are designed to give you useful information on how to buy at Larasati Muse Investments Pte. Ltd - herein referred to as LARASATI - fine art auction. Buyer’s Premium A buyer’s premium is payable by the buyer of each lot at a rate of 22% of the hammer price of the lot. GST at the appropriate rate is payable on the hammer price and premium. These charges are explained in detail under Larasati’s charges and GST at the back of this catalog.

1. BEFORE THE AUCTION Pre-sale Estimates The pre-sale estimates are intended as a guide for prospective buyers. Any bid between the high and the low pre-sale estimates would, in our opinion, offer a fair chance of success. However, all lots, depending on the degree of competition, can realise prices either above or below the pre-sale estimates. Reserves The reserve is the minimum price the seller is willing to accept below which the lot will not be sold. Condition of Lots Prospective buyers are encouraged to inspect the property at the pre-sale exhibition. Solely as a convenience, Larasati may provide condition reports. The absence of reference to the condition of a lot in the catalog description does not imply that the lot is free from faults or imperfections.

2. THE AUCTION Conditions of Business The Auction is governed by the Conditions of Business printed in this catalog. These Conditions of Business apply to all aspects of the relationship between Larasati and actual and prospective bidders and buyers. Anyone considering bidding in the auction should read them carefully. They may be amended by way of notices posted in the saleroom or by way of announcement made by the auctioneer. Bidding at Auction Bids may be executed in person by paddle during the auction, in writing prior to the sale or by telephone. All auctions are conducted in Singapore Dollars. Auction speeds vary, but usually average between 40 - 50 lots per hour. Consecutive and Responsive Bidding The Auctioneer may open the bidding on any lot by placing a bid on behalf of the seller. The Auctioneer may further bid on behalf of the seller, up to the amount of the reserve, by placing consecutive or responsive bids for a lot. Bidding Increments Bidding generally opens below the low estimates and advances in the following increments:

However, the auctioneer may change the increments during the course of the auction at his or her discretion.

Successful Bids The fall of the auctioneer’s hammer indicates the final bid. The auctioneer will call out and record the name or “paddle” number of the buyer, if your written bid is successful, you will be notified immediately after the sale by post. Bidding may be reopened at the auctioneer’s discretion. Currency Conversion Bidding is carried out in Singapore Dollars, but Larasati may provide a currency conversion board in the saleroom for the convenience of bidders. Please note that figures shown in foreign currencies are only approximates and do not represent exact exchange rates. Payment will be requested in Singapore Dollars.

3. AFTER THE AUCTION Bidding in Person To bid in person at the auction, you will need to register for and collect a numbered paddle before the auction begins. Proof of identity will be required. The paddle is used to indicate your bids to the auctioneer during the sale. Should you be the successful buyer of any lot, please ensure that your paddle can be seen by the auctioneer and that it is your number that is called out. Should there be any doubts as to price or buyer, please draw the auctioneer’s attention to it immediately. All lots sold will be invoiced to the name and address in which the paddle has been registered and cannot be transferred to other names and addresses. Please do not mislay your paddle; in the event of loss please inform the Sales Clerk immediately. At the end of the sale, please return your paddle to the registration desk. Absentee / Written Bids If you cannot attend the auction, we will be happy to execute written bids on your behalf. A bidding form can be found at the back of this catalog.

Working in a country where Islam is the official religion, there is a particularly local discourse that regulates image making – the notion of the halal, or permissible, became Jai’s next formal inquiry.

profane amongst Muslims – abject, the lowest of low, detestable, and Jai’s “babi” paintings make an acerbic allusion to the corruption within political structures of the country.

The return of the subject to the canvas not as noise but as a coherent, gestalt form is a return towards a locus of meaning. In order to determine whether an image, or subject, is halal or not, reference has to be made to the structure that polices its appropriateness and suitability, hence its context, meaning and significance.

More interestingly, Babi Harus turn to another new formal strategy in order to further explore the notion of banned images – graffiti. Recent urban political discontent in Malaysia has often found its most strategic expression in graffiti scrawl. There is an element of criminality in the guerilla-like assault of information, but it represents a counterpoint to any form of slick and smooth mainstream propaganda, relying on its baseness to carry through a message about corruption, filth and wrongdoings.

Having explored the notion of halal(ness), or permissibility, how does this read against Jai’s new series of work in Chanang? Perhaps the logical sequel to halal is for Jai to delve into its opposite but complementary other, which gives the work halal its meaning. This is the notion of haram, describing the forbidden or inappropriate, which becomes a useful lattice with which to grid his new paintings. Perhaps the most abrasive of the haram can be found in Jai’s series of paintings of pigs. The pig, or babi in Malay, is considered as a symbol of the

Female Nude 1998 oil on canvas 81 x 62 cm signed and dated on lower right S$ 27,000 - 37,000 US$ 21,600 - 29,600

“Female Nude” by Masriadi was executed towards the end of the artist’s student years in Jogjakarta. As a student at the art school, Masriadi was introduced to many iconic works in art history, including that of Willem de Kooning’s, a towering figure in Abstract Expressionism. De Kooning’s ferocious Women of the 1950s are renowned monuments of Abstract Expressionism. They are not erotic paintings, but they triumph through their sexuality. Just like d Kooning’s “Woman and Bicycle”, Masriadi’s “Female Nude” bares big bulging eyes, mammoth breasts and protruding lush lips as if ready to kiss. The painting shows a giant leap from the conventional depiction of a female nude by his predecessors. While De Kooning’s Women reflect, among other things, the persistence of the sex symbol in American society, Masriadi’s early Female Nude is a contemporary portrayal of a Balinese woman in the 21st century.

Newspaper clipping collage of Gyalo Thondup (Dalai Lama’s little brother)

THE KNOT The Painting was executed after Chang Fee Ming returned from his first Tibetan journey. At first look, it seems like a painting that shows a Tibetan dancer untying the knot of his beautiful ceremonial costume. But a close look at the black and white collage surrounding the painting would indicate that the artist’s actual intent is to pass a message regarding the relationship between the Dalai Lama and the Chinese Government. In Chinese custom, a “knot” could also mean an issue, and someone who unties the knot refers to someone “who can solve the issue”. For a long time, Gyalo Thondup, the brother of Dalai Lama, has the important mission to negotiate on issues between the Dalai Lama and the Chinese government. Unfortunately until today the “knot” between this two parties is still intact and the artist himself wonders when this “knot“ will be untied or when the issue is solved.

The Early Years : Ronald Ventura Three superb works from Ronald Ventura’s early years are featured from the storied collection of Dr. Joel Mendez: The first, an untitled nude, dated from 2001, already combines Ventura’s trademark virtuosity as a draughtsman and his penchant for fusing styles, both ancient and new, in a unique paradigm. The female –- both goddess and sacrificial victim –- floats on an imaginary altar borne aloft by shadowy hands as well as melting candlewax, symbolisms of fleeting time. Two works, dated from 2002 and presented as a single lot, are created on weathered hardwood. Dr Mendez noted that Ventura selected, cleaned and smoothed the planks himself, found on Dimasalang Street in old Manila, famous as the repository of the bones of forgotten mansions. “Bridal Gown” is a tongue-in-cheek parsing of what is essential to the marital eye, surrounded by a hundred icons of feminine wiles. “The Shield” is another study in irony, where masculine past, present and future meld. The last work, “Anonymous”, dated from 2003, fuses the classical with the surreal, graffiti with the Renaissance, exploring the Ventura’s eternal juxtapositions of beauty and rage, captivity and release.

A Beautiful Mind A chance encounter in 1999 –- in a printmaking session with the likes of Kiko Escora and Andres Barroquintos –- convinced Dr. Joel Mendez that the then-wholly unknown Ronald Ventura would be a name to be reckoned with in Philippine Art. “It was the way he put his brush to paper,” says Mendez, making little, gentle arabasques with his hand in the air. “I thought to myself, here is someone with a great talent that must be nurtured. It didn’t seem that I had any choice in the matter.” Mendez quickly became Ventura’s impresario, agent and agent provocateur, father and older brother. At one point, Ventura turned up at his doorstep, unexpected, with the announcement that he was moving in that instant, as if it was the most natural thing in the world. “Those were incredible years,” grins Mendez, “since I had very little money of my own since my practice was just starting.” Girlfriends would drift in and out of the house in a suburb north of Manila, the only other constant inmate being the doctor’s pet monkey called “Osang”, named after a local bombshell. Ventura resembled a rock musician in those early days (stringy, shoulder-length hair, tattered jeans) but Mendez says Ventura kept a pristine workplace (brushes and paints lined up like soldiers), subsisting for days only on air and sautéed beansprouts. The doctor would singlehandedly go from one established gallery to the next -– ‘hawking’ is the impolite word, says Mendez –- Ventura’s paintings. The art establishment raised its eyebrows and turned a cold shoulder. At Ventura’s very first exhibit, Mendez wound up purchasing the entire collection. Meanwhile, Ventura was soaking up the images that filled Dr. Mendez’s library – medical tomes like Gray’s Anatomy that illustrated the sinuous dissections that now inform Ventura’s works as well as books on Albrecht Duhrer who harnessed mathematics to create works of unmatched proportion and perspective, littered with allegorical symbols. Ventura was a graduate of Fine Arts at the University of Santo Tomas in Manila, later an instructor also in the same college. “He had all the benefits of a Catholic education,” says Mendez, “meaning he could champion convention with the best of them –- while at the same time tending to his inner demons.” Mendez describes Ventura as “the ultimate outsider”, having grown up in the outskirts of Manila, next door to a factory for fish sauce whose fermented odors soaked the air of his family’s house. His father was a cook who worked in other people’s kitchens overseas; his mother, a plain-spoken public school teacher who egged her son on to pursue art. Ventura was drawing before he had learned to write his ‘A, B, C’s’. When he came to Manila, Mendez says, Ventura was “completely watchful, all eyes, peering into our lives, his nose pressed up to the glass windows of our very bourgeois lives, seeing more than we ourselves could ever see.” The atmosphere was slowly shifting : Ventura was named Artist of the Year by Art Manila in 2001, two years later, one of the ’13 Artists’ of 2003 by the Cultural Center of the Philippines. Two more years later, he was likewise named winner of the Ateneo de Manila Art Awards 2005, with an Australian residency, the same

year that Dr. Mendez’ gallery, Big & Small Art exhibited his works in Singapore for the Art Fair. “In a way,” Mendez notes, “I put up this gallery for him.” Two other galleries had also decided to back Ventura, and Mendez noted with some self-satisfaction,”his works would start being sold-out.” And then, the Ventura-mania exploded. It was destiny, says Dr. Mendez.

Considered as Indonesia’s most renowned artist of the expressionist movement in the 1950s and 1960s, Affandi acclaimed praises from Indonesia as well as international art enthusiasts. Herbert Read, a famous art critic, once stated him as a painter who had succeeded in ‘developing a new course of Expressionism’. The artist’s life and career documented the daily life of a young nation in transition from colony to a republic. Affandi’s works display the artist’s fervent brush strokes, inundating his subjects with such emotions that every work screams out the true personality of the artist. His original rather conventional and realistic style gradually morphed into one of the distortion and deformation in the 1950s and since then his works of the 1960s showed the artist’s love of vitality and movement, often with forceful subject matters painted in dynamism of his brushstrokes. Through present lot titled “Nyeret” (in Indonesia: ‘nyandu’, or English: drugs addiction) dated 1968, Affandi tried to record a lifestyle that existed during and post-Dutch colonial era in Java In those days Javanese people did ‘nyeret’ for the purpose to resist sleepiness, for example a puppeteer who would perform a whole-night wayang performance. However, other parts of the communities such as Chinese traders and local Javanese people did nyeret for recreational purpose, social standing or as catharsis (escaping from the reality or problem). Back then it was reported that there was a special place that provided people to buy and enjoy the drug. At the rental place, wooden beds, tea pot, drinking water and some sugar cubes were provided so the addicts can enjoy their time while taking drugs. Levels of addiction is very high, so there were addicts who died in emaciated state. Affandi documented very well how such lifestyle existed in the Javanese culture, and in the present lot he combines together the closeness of life delight and death threat co-existing in a drug addiction with death symbolized by the skull at the back of the skinny man enjoying the ‘nyeret’. Executed in 1968 portraying the Javanese culture then, the painting expresses that addiction is a classic and global social threat and still popular until today. Society at large is systematically failing to engage on the issue. We can safely watch such tragedy, gawking as we drive by the destruction, insulated from the suffering and still unable to help.

Anakku Cantik 1969 oil on canvas 75 x 60 cm signed with the artist’s monogram and dated (upper left), inscribed “Anakku Cantik”(lower right). S$ 55,000 - 75,000 US$ 44,000 - 60,000 Literature: Amir Sidharta, VISIBLE SOUL, Museum S. Sudjojono & Canna Gallery, Indonesia, 2006. Illustrated in color, p. 138

S. Sudjojono was a multi-talented artist as well as a profound thinker. He freely expressed what was in his heart and did not want to be restrained by the visual art conventions. He felt he had to paint as his heart urged him to. Most of his works display issues that emotionally matter to him, such as patriotism, social commentaries, political issues or national identity. After marrying Rose Pandanwangi, his more personal works were created, portraying his family members or daily activities reflecting his passionate love to his family and the importance of having them in his artistic and spiritual life. The present lot is an exquisite picture of the artist’s little daughter, Maya who, unlike her other sisters, enjoyed modeling for her father. As an active two-year old girl, it was not easy for any father, not only Sudjojono, to make her little girl stay still for a long time in order to find the perfect angle. And yet, when it comes to painting his loved ones, Sudjojono’s inner camera was always at its most powerful mode. The result in this case is a secondto-none portrait by the artist.

(Amsterdam, The Netherlands,1895 - Laren, The Netherlands,1978)

In February 1942, when Japan invaded Bali, a strange vacuum in time occured for Western artists living on the island. Rudolf Bonnet and Willem & Maria Hofker were imprisoned in Denpasar, but were released a few months thereafter as soon as the Japanese found out that they were artists. They returned to Ubud, and were confronted with an ambiguous situation: most Western tourists had fled the island, the Dutch government was gone, and the Balinese natives, without the economy of tourism, had to rely on their own natural resources again. Bonnet lived in relative freedom over the 1.5 years that followed. Drawing and painting material was scarce. At times, Cokorde Gde Raka Sukawati’s French wife, Gilberte Sukawati, a close friend of Bonnet and the Hofkers, used her power to arrange paper, canvas, and drawing media.

of women carrying offerings (mostly fruit and cakes, Gebogan) from their homes toward the temple. This ritual is held once every 210 days, during a temple anniversary. Clearly, Bonnet has stylized certain anatomic features, like the size of the girls’ eyes, and the sculptural shape of the breasts. Usually he stylized for artistic reasons, elongating faces and shoulders. However, one could suspect there was a more commercial purpose involved in the current lot to stylize the ladies’ features. Nevertheless, Bonnet once again shows his unrivaled talent in making portraits with strong cultural elements. Mepèèd is a rare example of a commercial work by Bonnet, made during the 1.5 years in Bali, just before his internment.

‘Zij (i.e. Bonnet & Hofker) voorzagen in hun onderhoud door tekeningen te verkopen aan winkeltjes in Denpasar, waarin deze werden verkocht aan Japanners. Vooral tekeningen van vrouwen met blote borstjes waren zeer in trek!’ ‘They (i.e. Bonnet & Hofker) provided for themselves by selling drawings to little shops in Denpasar, that sold these drawings to Japanese officers. Especially drawings of bare-breasted women were very popular!’ (Roever-Bonnet, Dr. H. de, Rudolf Bonnet, een Zondagskind, Wijk en Aalburg, 1993, p.39)

Although Bonnet’s artistic and personal focus was not primarily on portraying bare-breasted women, the situation he was in together with Hofker forced him to make more commercially appealing work. Stemming from his personal preferences, Bonnet was more inclined to make stunning portraits of young Balinese men. The current theme of idealised beautiful Balinese girls, however, could even remind the viewer more of the themes that Hofker so often depicted. But still, the decisive and thick chalk lines, heightened with gouache paint, the composition of two women, one of which is typically portrayed en profile, the bold diagonal hatching lines, and the unique spattering technique Bonnet had developed together with Hofker a few years earlier, clearly show the master’s hand. What we see here is an extremely rare example of work that Bonnet made in the Japanese year 2603, i.e. 1943, only a few months before he and his close friends Willem and Maria Hofker would be arrested again, just before Christmas 1943, to be deported to the work camps in South-Celebes. The two Balinese beauties wear wooden offerings on their heads, the left being a winged lion (Singha), the right one an offering box with a deity figure (Pratima). The title, Mepèèd, refers to the Balinese procession

Conditions of Business for Buyers We hereby inform all those participating in the auction, that it shall be held subject to the following conditions and that anyone taking part in it, hereby accepts these conditions as applicable. Larasati as agent As auctioneer, Larasati Muse Investments Pte. Ltd. here-in referred to as Larasati acts as agent for the seller. Unless otherwise agreed, sales of goods at this auction result in contracts made between the seller, through our agency, with the buyer. Definitions of terms used in these conditionsIn the conditions set out below, some terms are used regularly that need explanation. They are as follows: • the “Buyer” means the person with highest bid accepted by the auctioneer; • a “Lot” means any item deposited with us for sale at auction and, in particular, the item or items described against any lot number in any catalog; • the “Hammer Price” means the charge pay able by the auctioneer in relation to a lot; • the “Buyer’s Premium” means the charge payable by the buyer as a percentage of the hammer price; • the “Reserve” means the amount below which we agree with the Seller that the lot cannot be sold; • “Forgery” means a Lot constituting an imitation originally conceived and executed as a whole with a fraudulent intention to deceive as to authorship, origin, age, period, culture or source where the correct description as to such matters is not reflected by the description in the catalog nd which at the date of the auction had a value materially less than it would have had if it had been in accordance with the description in the catalog. Accordingly, no lot shall be capable of being a forgery by reason of any damage and/or restoration work of any kind (including repainting); • the “Insured Value” means the amount that Larasati in its absolute discretion from time to time shall consider to be the value for which a lot should be covered by insurance (whether or not insurance is arranged by us).

120

BEFORE THE SALE Examination of goods Prospective buyers are strongly advised to examine personally any goods in which they are interested, before the auction takes place. Condition reports are usually available on request. Larasati is not responsible for any faults or defects in any lot or the correctness of: - any statement as to the authorship; - origin; - date and age of the lot; - attribution; - genuineness; - provenance and conditions of any lot. Larasati does not make or give, nor has any person in the employment of Larasati any authority to make or give, any representation or warranty regarding the authorship, origin, date, age, size, medium, attribution, genuiness, description, provenance, condition or estimate selling price of any lot. Catalog descriptions Statements by us in the catalog or condition report, or made orally or in writing elsewhere, regarding the authorship, origin, date, age, size, medium, attribution, genuineness, provenance, condition or estimate selling price of any lot are merely statements of opinion given in good faith, and are not to be relied on as statements of definitive fact. Catalog illustrations are for guidance only, and should not be relied on either to determine the tone or colour of any item or to reveal imperfections. Estimates of the selling price should not be relied on as a statement that this price is either the price at which the lot will sell or its value for any other purpose. Many items are of an age or nature which precludes their being in perfect condition and some descriptions in the catalog or given by way of condition report make reference to damage and/or restoration. We provide this information for guidance only and the absence of such reference does not imply that an item is free from defects or restoration nor does the reference to particular defects imply the absence of any others.

Buyers Responsibility Buyers are responsible for satisfying themselves concerning the condition of the goods and the matters referred to in the catalog description. AT THE SALE Refusal of admission Our sale takes place on our own premises or premises over which we have control for the sale, and we have the right, exercisable at our complete discretion, to refuse admission to the premises or attendance at the auction. Registration before bidding Every prospective buyer must complete and sign a registration form and provide identification before making a bid at auction. Prospective buyers should be aware that we usually require buyers to undergo a credit check. Bidding as Principal When making a bid, prospective buyer will be accepting personal liability, unless it has been agreed in writing, at the time of registration, that a bidder is acting as agent on behalf of a third party acceptable to us. Commission Bids If a prospective buyer gives us instructions to bid on his behalf, by using the form printed after the catalog entries, we shall use reasonable efforts to do so, provided these instructions are received not later than 24 hours before the sale. Bids should be placed in Singapore Dollars. Bids placed in other currencies will be converted to Singapore Dollars using the one month forward rate of exchange quoted to us by HSBC Bank at opening on the date of the auction and the Singapore Dollars figure may be subject to rounding. The Buyer’s invoice will be in Singapore Dollars and we shall not be liable to the buyer for any loss suffered as a result of exchange rate movements after the date of the sale. If we receive commission bids on a particular lot for identical amounts, and at auction these bids are the highest bids for the lot, it will be sold to the person whose bid was received first. Commission bids are undertaken subject to other commitments


at the time of the sale, and the conduct of the sale may be such that we are unable to bid as requested. Since this is undertaken as a free service to prospective buyers on the terms stated, we cannot accept liability for failure to make a commission bid. Prospective buyers should therefore always attend personally if they wish to be certain of bidding. Telephone Bids If prospective buyers make arrangements with us not less than 24 hours before the sale, we shall use reasonable efforts to contact the bidders to enable them to participate in bidding by telephone, but under no circumstances will we be liable to either the seller or any prospective buyer as a result of failure to do so. Currency Converter At this auction, a currency converter may be operated, based on the one month forward rates of exchange quoted to us by HSBC Bank at opening on the date of the auction. Bidding will however take place in Singapore Dollars. The currency converter is not always reliable, and errors may occur beyond our control either in the accuracy of the lot number displayed on the converter, or the foreign currency equivalent of Singapore Dollars bids. We shall not be liable to the buyer for any loss suffered as a result of the buyer following the currency converter, rather than the Singapore Dollars bidding. Video images At this auction there will be a video screen. Mistakes may occur in its operation, and we cannot be liable to the buyer regarding either the correspondence of the image to the lot being sold or the quality of the image as a reproduction of the original. The auctioneer’s discretion The auctioneer has the right at his absolute discretion to refuse any bid, to advance the bidding in such manner as he may decide, to withdraw or divide any lot, to combine any two or more lots and, in the case of error or dispute, to put an item up for bidding again. Successful bid Subject to the auctioneer’s discretion, the striking of his hammer marks the acceptance of the highest bid and the conclusion

of a contract for sale between the seller and the buyer. AFTER THE SALE Buyer’s Premium In addition to the hammer price, the buyer must pay us the buyer’s premium at a rate of 22% of the hammer price of the lot. Good and Service Tax (GST) Unless otherwise stated in the catalog, GST is payable by the Buyer on the Hammer Price and premium at the rates prevailing on the date of the auction. And unless otherwise informed, all sums payable to Larasati by the buyer are exclusive of any goods and service tax or other value added tax (whether imposed is Singapore or otherwise) which shall, where appllicable, be paid by the Buyer in addition to the sums otherwise payable, at the rate in force at the due time for payment or such other time as is stipulated under the relevant legislation. Payment Following the sale, the buyer must provide us with his or her name and permanent address and, if so requested, details of the bank from which payment will be made and then pay the full amount due (comprising the hammer price and the buyer’s premium) within seven days after the date of the sale. The buyer will not acquire title to the lot until all amounts due to us have been paid to us, even in circumstances where we have released the lot to the buyer. Collection of Purchases Unless we specifically agree to the contrary, we shall retain items sold until all amounts due to us, or to Larasati or to any of its other subsidiaries, have been paid in full. Items retained will be covered by our insurance from the date of the sale for a period of seven days or, if by then the goods have been collected, to the time of collection. After seven days or from the time of collection, whichever is the earlier, the lot will be entirely at the buyer’s risk. Packing and handling We shall use all reasonable efforts to take care when handling and packing a purchased lot but remind the buyer that after seven days or from the time of collection, the lot is entirely at the buyer’s risk.

Remedies for non-payment or failure to collect purchases If the buyer fails to make payment within seven days, we shall be entitled to exercise one or more of the following rights or remedies: • to charge interest at a rate per annum not exceeding (Hongkong and Shanghai Bank Corporation) base rate plus 4 per cent on the full amount due to the extent it remains unpaid for more than seven days after the date of the sale; • to exercise a lien on any of the buyer’s property which may be in our possession for any purpose and, following 14 days’ notice to the buyer of the amount outstanding and remaining unpaid, arrange the sale of such property and apply the proceeds in discharge of the amount outstanding to us; • where several amounts are owed by the buyer to us, or to Larasati, or to any of its other subsidiaries, in respect of different transactions, to apply any amount paid to discharge any amount owed in respect of any particular transaction whether or not the buyer so directs; • to reject at any future auction any bids made by the buyer or on his behalf or obtain a deposit from the buyer before accepting any bids; If the buyer fails to make payment within 21 days, we shall in addition be entitled to exercise any one or more of the following remedies: • to issue proceedings on behalf of the seller against the buyer to recover the full amount due, together with the costs of such proceedings on a full indemnity basis and with interest, charged at 4% per annum above (Hongkong and Shanghai Bank Corporation) base rate; • to cancel the sale of the lot or any other item sold to the buyer at the same auction; • to arrange a resale of the lot publicly or privately, and, if this results in a lower price being obtained, claim the balance from t he buyer together with any costs incurred in connection with the buyer’s failure to make payment. Failure to collect Where purchases are not collected within seven days after the sale, whether or not payment has been made, we shall arrange storage at the buyer’s expense, and only release the items purchased after payment has been made in full of storage, removal, insurance and any other costs incurred, together with payment of all other amounts due to us.

Seller’s representations and warranties regarding the Lot The seller warrants and represents to Larasati and to the buyer that: (i) The seller is the sole owner of the lot with an unrestricted right to transfer title to the buyer free from all third party rights or claims (including copyright claims); (ii) All information supplied to Larasati by the seller or his agents is accurate; (iii) The seller has complied with all requirements, legal or otherwise, relating to any export or import of the lot and has notified us in writing of any failure by third parties in complying with such requirements in the past; and (iv) The seller has notified us in writing of any material alterations to the lot of which the seller is aware and any concerns expressed by third parties in relation to the ownership, condition or attribution of the lot. If any of (i), (ii), (iii) or (iv) above is incorrect, the seller undertakes to and will indemnify Larasati and/or the buyer on a full indemnity basis against any liability, claims, costs or expenses whatsoever incurred as a result, whether arising in the relation to the lot or proceeds of sale or in dealing with any claim arising out of that respect. AT THE SALE Sale Arrangements (i) We shall have complete discretion as to the way a lot is described and illustrated in the catalog or any condition report, the place and manner sale; the decision as to which person should be admitted to the auction, and as to which bids should be accepted; whether expert advice should be sought; and the combination or division of goods for sale.


(ii) Any estimate given, orally or in writing, is a matter of opinion only and is not an assurance in relation to the price that the lot will eventually fetch. (iii) Upon signing the Consignment Agreement, the seller may not withdraw a lot from auction without the consent of Larasati. Should such lot be withdrawn, the seller agrees to indemnify Larasati on a full indemnity basis in respect of all costs and expenses incurred in putting up the lot for auction or against any liability, claims, costs or expenses howsoever incurred as a result of dealing with any claim arising out of that respect. (iv) Larasati may at its sole discretion withdraw a lot from auction at any time if (a) we have any doubt as to its attribution or authenticity or as to the accuracy of the statements made by the seller in the Consignment Agreement, (b) there is any breach of these conditions or the terms and conditions of the Consignment Agreement or (c) we believe it would be improper to include the Lot in the sale. (v) If we withdraw the lot, we shall charge the seller a equal to 10% of the insured value, plus an amount equal to our commission if the lot had been sold at the insured value, together with any applicable Government Service Charge and insurance and other expenses. Conduct of Sale (i) The lot will be sold subject to the reserve, which cannot be above the low estimate printed in the catalogue unless the reserve is agreed to in a currency other than Singapore Dollars, and the exchange rates fluctuate between the time the reserve is agreed and the day of the sale. In this case, unless we agree otherwise, the reserve shall be an amount equal to the Singapore Dollars equivalent based on the closing exchange rate on the business day immediately preceding the sale. We shall in no circumstances be liable if bids are not received at the level of the reserve. If we do so, we shall be obliged to account to the seller as if hammer price was equal to the reserve. (ii) The seller may not bid for the lot nor employ any person to do so on the seller’s behalf, although we shall have the right to bid on the seller’s behalf up to the amount of the reserve. AFTER THE SALE Accounting After the sale, we shall require payment in full from the buyer, including payment of the buyer’s premium. Provided this has occurred, we shall remit to the seller an amount equal to the hammer price less all charges due to be paid by the seller, within

35 working days after the date of the sale, unless we have received notice that the lot is a forgery (as defined in the definition of terms used in these Conditions of Business). In the event of late payment by the buyer we shall make such remittance to the seller within seven days of receipt of such payment by the buyer. If for any reason we make payment to the seller of any amount before payment by the buyer, we shall acquire complete ownership of and title in the lot, save only that in the event that we are obliged to accept the lot back from the buyer on the basis that it is a forgery, the seller will refund to us all proceeds of sale that have been paid to the seller. Payment will be made in Singapore Dollars. Non-Payment by the Buyer If the buyer fails to pay the full amount due within 35 working days after the date of sale, we shall be entitled (i) on the seller’s behalf, to agree special terms with the buyer for payment, storage and insurance, and (ii) to take any steps we consider necessary to collect the amount due from the buyer. However, we shall not be obliged either to remit the price due to the seller ourselves, nor to take any legal proceedings on the seller’s behalf. We shall discuss with the seller the appropriate course of action to be taken to recover the purchase price from the buyer. Forgeries If within 6 (six) months of the date of the auction the Buyer satisfies us that the Lot is a Forgery, with the condition that claim must be accompanied with satisfactory evidence in the form of a written opinion of at least 3 (three) independent experts with knowledge on the related property, confirming that the lot is a forgery, then: (i) if the Buyer at that time has not yet paid the full amount due, we shall have the right to cancel the sale and/or (ii) if the Buyer has paid the full amount and if we have at the time not paid the seller the whole or part of the full amount due to the seller, then we will refund to the Buyer the purchase price of the lot and/or (iii) If the Buyer had paid the full amount and if we at that time had also paid the Seller the whole or part of the full amount due, then the Seller must refund to us, on demand, the total amount paid. We shall then refund the total amount received from the Seller to the Buyer plus any balance due to the Buyer to pay back the full purchase price of the lot. The Buyer does not reserve the right to claim any interests on the purchase price paid by the Buyer. In the latter case we shall exercise a lien over any property of the Seller under our control as security for the amount due.

We reserve the right to seek for further expert opinion. There will be no refund if there is a conflict of opinion among the related experts. Larasati is not responsible for any faults or defects in any lot, including the genuineness of the work. Unsold Lot If any lot is unsold, or is not included in a sale, or is withdraw from the sale for any reason, it must be collected from us within 7 days after we send the seller a notice requiring the seller to collect it. If any such lot remains uncollected for a period exceeding 7 days, a storage charge of S$ 30 per item per day will apply and additional charge will be made for insurance. The seller will not entitled to collect the lot until all outstanding charges are met. If any such lot is not collected within 30 days after the date of the sale or the date of the notice referred to above (whichever occurs first), it may be disposed of by us as we see fit, which may involve its removal to a third party warehouse at the seller’s expense and its sale by public auction on such terms as we consider appropriate, including those relating to estimates and reserves. We shall then account to the seller for the proceeds of sale, having deducted all amounts due. CONDITIONS APPLICABLE TO BOTH BUYERS AND SELLERS Copyright The copyright in all images, illustrations and written material relating to a lot is and shall remain at all times our property and shall not be used by the buyer nor anyone else without our prior written consent. Notices Any notice given under these conditions is to be in writing and, if given by post, will be taken to have been received by the addressee on the second working day after posting, or if the addressee is overseas, on the fifth working day after posting. Severability If any part of these conditions is found by any court to be invalid, illegal or unenforceable, that part may be discounted and the conditions shall continue to be valid and enforceable to the fullest extent permitted by law. Law and Jurisdiction These Conditions of Business are governed by Singapore law, which shall apply to their construction as well as to their effect.
