Captain Pringle of Houston; Ian G. Lindsay and thence by descent

£10,000-15,000 Thomas Shairp, the Fifth Laird of Houston, a friend of Ramsay's, commissioned the artist to paint five portraits of himself and his family in 1750. Shairp, who had married his cousin Janet sometime before 1723, their son Thomas, daughter Janet and Thomas' wife Anne were sent the portraits upon completion by Ramsay in his London studio later that year. His daughter Janet's portrait now hangs in the collection of Aberdeen Art Gallery and his son Thomas' in the Edinburgh City Art Centre. The two further portraits have found a home in private collections. Ramsay was arguably at the peak of his career by this period. This portrait of Shairp effectively demonstrates the stylistic elements which set Ramsay's work above that of his peers. Following French trends, Ramsay favoured more naturalistic and less artificial compositions. This is

the reason Ramsay's portraits are always such fascinating and lively character studies, the sitter engaging with the viewer with a directness that was rare in British portraiture up to this point. Consequent to this, Ramsay's most successful works were arguably portraits of those

close to him. Indeed Alastair Smart, one of Ramsay's chief scholars, described the Shairp portrait series as being “among Ramsay's most sensitive things” (p.57, The Life and Art of Allan Ramsay, by Alistair Smart, 1952).

48 FG328/8 SIR EDWIN HENRY LANDSEER R.A. (BRITISH 1802-1873) HEAD AND SHOULDER PORTRAIT OF LORD MELBOURNE Oil on board 25.5cm x 20cm (10in x 8in) Provenance: Bears back label verso: 'Thos. Agnew and Son Ltd, London, no. 23624

£10,000-15,000 One of the most notable figures in 19th century British art, Landseer was famed for his skilled depictions of animals and his patronage by Queen Victoria. He also produced numerous portraits of society figures, with this study of Lord Melbourne being one such example. Melbourne was Prime Minister of Britain between the years 1834-1841 but is best remembered as the young Queen Victoria’s political mentor, a position he undertook at the age of 58. Victoria famously adored her advisor, and the pair forged an intense companionship. Prior to this, Melbourne’s most remarkable claim to fame had been the spectacularly public end of his marriage to the beautiful but flighty Lady Caroline Ponsonby. Ponsonby had conducted an overt and passionate affair with Lord Byron during which she famously described the poet as “mad, bad and dangerous to know.”

32

Landseer was first commissioned to paint Lord Melbourne by Lady Holland, the wife of fellow Whig politician Henry Vassall-Fox and hostess of famous literary and political salons. His most famous likeness of Melbourne, however, is held in the collection of the National Portrait Gallery. Queen Victoria’s verdict of the painting was positive, if

curiously inconsistent, stating that it was “like him but too fat and though flattering is not in my opinion half pleasing enough. It is very well done.” It is likely this work is a study for one of these portraits, depicting Melbourne from a slightly different angle than that of the fully worked up examples. It would have been executed c. 1836 while the

precociously talented Landseer was still in his early thirties. Lord Melbourne is shown as a handsome man of advancing years, his countenance kindly and his characteristic heavy sideburns and brows easily recognisable. The face is boldly formed and the hazily defined background an increasingly recognisable characteristic of Landseer’s mature work.

Jan Zoetelief Tromp was born in Batavia, an outpost of the former Dutch East Indies where his father was working as an official. Many artists had travelled to the Dutch colonies to paint and to educate the locals in Western art practise and one could postulate that Tromp developed his interest in art amidst this cultural hub. By 1893 however, Tromp had returned to Holland and enrolled at The Hague

40

Academy under Frederick Johannes Jansen, later also studying at the Academy in Amsterdam. He lived the majority of his life in France where he died in 1947. Tromp carved a highly successful career which spanned genre scenes, landscape and seascapes. Works like the two shown here were particularly popular; featuring charming children in rural and seaside idylls.

Having married the daughter of Hague School artist Bernadus Blommers, it was perhaps inevitable that his father-in-law’s style would influence Tromp in the development of his own oeuvre. The Hague School had initially been characterised by its sombre palette but latterly, due to the influence of French Impressionism, figures such as Jacob Maris and Jozef Israels began lightening and enriching their tonal range.

Tromp favoured bright light and vivid tonalities, evoking a romantic sense of halcyon summertime within his work. In a region that had suffered so greatly at the hands of war during the past century, his signature sense of idealised optimism and references to childhood innocence held great appeal to the buying public, as they indeed still do today.

Artist and designer Robert Anning Bell was a member of the British Arts and Crafts Movement. Particularly well known as a book designer and illustrator, Bell additionally created mosaics for Westminster Cathedral and frequently exhibited his paintings in the Royal Academy, the New English Art Club and the Royal Society of Painters in Watercolours. The artist also held a succession of significant academic posts beginning at the Liverpool University School of Architecture before progressing to Chief of Design at the Glasgow School of Art from 1911, and ultimately Professor of Design at the Royal College of Art from 1918 to 1924. The fairy tale of Sleeping Beauty had enjoyed renewed popularity in the late 19th century; Tchaikovsky’s famous ballet was first performed in 1890 and Bell himself approached the

subject on several occasions, illustrating the children’s book ‘The Sleeping Beauty, and Dick Whittington and his Cat’ with author Grace Little Rhys in 1895. Between 1885 and 1890 the Pre-Raphaelite artist Edward Burne-Jones had created a monumental, much celebrated series of four panels entitled “The Legend of Briar Rose’. Bell’s painting of 1919, represented here, seems to echo BurneJones’ second panel, ‘The Garden Court’, which shows

the maidens of the castle slumbering under the fairies’ spell. It was accompanied by William Morris’ verse: “The maiden plaisance of the land Knoweth no stir of voice or hand No cup the sleeping waters fill The restless shuttle lieth still.” Victorian interpretations of Sleeping Beauty frequently seem to focus on this

moment; the women shown frozen in suspended animation, pure and peaceful in repose. Feminist art historians have since alluded to the sensual undertones of such depictions, the male artists electing to keep the beautiful young women eternally trapped in the innocence of sleep rather than allowing them the moment of (latent sexual) awakening granted by the prince’s kiss.

GASTON LA TOUCHE Our view of the Parisian ‘Belle Époque’ is somewhat blinkered by our fascination with the interpretation offered by the French Realist and Impressionist schools. Contemporaries who did not subscribe to the same Baudelairian theory of ‘Modernity’ have received less attention in recent decades, though their quality is none the less compelling. La Touche is one such example and an artist whose work is ripe for renewed appreciation. Though he elected to follow a different path from many of his contemporaries, he was a known and well-regarded figure in the same circles, frequenting the Café de la Nouvelle Athènes where he conversed with and befriended influential figures such as Manet, Duranty and Zola. What set La Touche aside from his fellow artists was his determination to paint exactly what and how he wanted to, ultimately bucking the trend towards realism in order to create a fantastical, almost fairy tale interpretation of Paris in the late 1800s. The escapism offered by his artworks led to fame and commercial success in his lifetime and he regularly exhibited at the annual Paris Salons, the Société Nationale des BeauxArts and the Société des Peintres et Sculpteurs. Each

64

artwork offered here for sale is an exemplary example of the principal motifs which he explored repeatedly throughout his career: from opera to allegory. La Touche’s interest was particularly piqued by the theatricality of society events. While Degas aimed his attention towards ballerinas and the orchestral pit, La Touche diverted the focus from the performance and instead made the foyers and opera boxes his stage and the audience his characters. In his work ‘La Loge’ he seeks, as ever, to stimulate his viewer’s imagination. Illuminated by romantic gaslight his ‘lead’, a glamorous woman, makes her way through the crowds. All eyes are turned towards her and a handsome figure in a top hat appears to help her out of her striking red jacket. What his relation is to her, what her role in society might be and whether she draws attention for her elegance or notoriety is left for us to decide. Though not an uncommon subject for artists of the time, La Touche’s feather-light touch and dream-like lighting effects elevate the scene from the modernity of knowing satire to something more ageless and ethereal. His painting ‘Les Amants sous le Pont’ takes us slightly

further into the realms of fantasy, depicting a pair of lovers floating down a tranquil river in a rowing boat, oblivious to all but each other. Represented in a romantic embrace, the figures are bathed in La Touche’s favoured golden autumnal light, presenting the viewer with an image of highly transportive qualities. Being a happily married man himself, romance was clearly a subject close to his heart. His wife was credited with widening the circles of the naturally retiring artist; contributing greatly to his success, particularly amongst North American art dealers and patrons. Amongst the advice Manet imparted to the young La Touche was a statement that clearly resonated strongly: “In painting there is no black or white, but only the colours of the rainbow”. [1] Embracing this philosophy whole-heartedly, La Touche’s artworks are united by their glowing palette and his refusal to shy away from tackling challenging light effects. Few artists of the period so successfully mastered the depiction of fireworks. In ‘Le Lac des Cygnes’ we see a nude figure swimming, Venus-like, among swans in a fountain in the garden at Versailles. The sky is illuminated by red smoke and the water glitters

with the glow of golden lanterns. Part Classical idyll and part celebration of Louis XIV’s decadent vision, the viewer is left wondering whether they have stumbled upon a bathing nymph or an elicit midnight dip in the 17th century. Now, as we move from a “Belle Époque” of our own into more austere times, the idealism and timelessness of his images begin to once again appeal strongly. In the wholly allegorical ‘L’Autel de l’Amour’ we find realism dismissed entirely and the implied narrative at its most fantastical. La Touche transports the viewer to a splendid classical palace where fireworks, a carpet of rose petals, curtseying maidens and attentive satyrs welcome the child-god Cupid. Such scenes were the subject of the artist’s largest canvases and allowed his imagination, and of course that of his viewers, entirely free reign.

THE COLLECTION OF THE LATE DR. RENATE DAVIS This autumn Lyon & Turnbull are pleased to present for sale a selection of artworks from the collection of Albert Davis. Davis was born into a family of Russian Jewish immigrants in Manchester and, despite a strong interest in art, became a qualified doctor in 1925.

70

In the 1930s he started collecting an eclectic variety of fine art works. At that time, apart from some works by the Great Masters, art was not bought for investment as it has been since the Second World War, and as a successful doctor and single man he was able to start a

small but significant collection. During the war his service included casualty surgery in the London Blitz and medical support for the Unexploded Bomb Squad. Ironically, some of his collection, including work by Vlaminck, was destroyed by bombing.

After the war he started a family and pursued a successful career as an eminent gynaecologist in London, although by this time he could afford only modest additions to his collection. Now upon the death of his wife Renate, the collection returns to market for the first time in decades.

This superb sketch by Degas is likely to date to c. 18951900. By this stage Degas was fully immersed in the possibilities of his ballerina studies, focusing his attention behind the scenes in the dressing room and during rehearsals. Honing in on seemingly casual gestures – a girl pulling up a stocking or, as here, adjusting a shoulder strap – he would analytically repeat the movement from numerous angles, sometimes conveying the same action in a rhythmic, frieze-like composition. This study is likely to relate to completed works such as ‘Behind the Scenes’ from c. 1898 or ‘Dancers’ of 1899. Behind the incidental appearance of these sketches was of course meticulous choreography and stylization. His ability to capture the essential spontaneity of the dancer’s pose is testament to

his skill and the fluidity of his draughtsmanship. By this stage he had also begun to develop a technique of complicated shading and hatching - as seen in the textured lines that make up this drawing - a method that lent a softness of focus which further enhanced the sense of movement. As with many of his contemporaries, Degas was working in the light of comments made by the poet and critic Charles Baudelaire in his 1863 essay ‘The Painter of Modern Life’. Much of Degas’ work epitomises Baudelaire’s sentiments, perhaps most notably the assertion that, ““Modernity” signifies the transitory, the fugitive, the contingent.‘’ By describing a fleeting everyday moment, Degas purposefully elevates the mundane and makes us into an audience of voyeurs. The conscious

selection of a fragment of a wider scene makes his engagement with photographic technology evident, being a format he embraced in its own right as well as used as a drawing aid.

Once established in his career, Jacob Epstein was frequently commissioned to create portrait busts. Subsequently, they represent a significant proportion of his output. According to biographer June Rose he would first meticulously study his subject from all angles, “noting the shape of the skull, the relation of the features to each other and to the whole, and the dissimilarity between the two sides of the face.” He had a tremendous aptitude for conveying an accurate mental as well as physiological likeness. Since his more experimental beginnings, Epstein had been regarded as a member of the avant-garde and, as such, opposed to the strictures placed upon art practise by the traditional institutions. This cemented his popularity among more liberal patrons.

herself in 1931. She married the theatrical producer Maurice Browne, a founder of the Chicago branch of the Little Theatre. This constituted a movement which, in reaction to the increasing popularity of cinema, aimed to produce a more intimate “reformminded” theatrical experience. Epstein counters her sharp ‘Louise Brooks’ bob with a serene smile. This remains one of the few busts he created where his sitter displays anything other than a rather enigmatic, reflective expression. Epstein also depicted his family on several occasions. This bust of his daughter Kitty (with curls) was conceived in 1944 and was the first of three he created in her likeness. She was the daughter of his long-term mistress, and latterly second wife, Kathleen Garman who, famously, was shot in the shoulder with a pearl-handled pistol by his first wife Margaret. Kitty herself went on to become the artist Lucien Freud’s first wife, and was the muse behind several of his seminal early works such as ‘Girl with Kitten’ and ‘Girl with a White Dog’.

One such client was Ellen Jansen, a poet and member of a bohemian American set, who commissioned the bust

JOHN PIPER The art of stained glass was one of Piper’s many passions. Though it was initially through his interest in architecture and archaeology that he focused his studies in this area, it was not long before it began to engage him artistically. In his early twenties Piper began to make watercolour copies of stained glass windows in his local area, a practise he later credited with having taught him “something of the emotional power of colour.” [1] Before long stained glass had become a serious academic pursuit. He made pilgrimages around the UK and Europe, France in particular, to see early medieval examples and modern interpretations by artists like Leger and Chagall. By the mid-1950s he began receiving commissions for his own designs. Piper developed a strong ideological stance towards stained glass practise, publishing the book ‘Stained Glass: Art or Anti-Art’ in 1968. He felt that very little excellent stained glass had historically been produced, stating that it had traditionally been condemned to the status of craft industry as opposed

78

to art form. As with Piper’s eclectic approach to all areas of his oeuvre, he felt that stained glass design “is in constant need of direction and control and nourishment of all kinds from art: from painting, sculpture and architecture. It seldom gets it.” [2] Piper proposed that artists should always be at the helm, aided by collaborative craftsmen, and urged, “good artists can be trusted: so clergy be bolder!”[3] Piper designed and executed many commissions alongside glass artist John Reyntiens including windows for Eton College Chapel, St Andrew’s in Plymouth, Llandaff Cathedral, the baptistery in Coventry Cathedral, Liverpool Metropolitan Cathedral and Robinson College, Cambridge. His designs were seldom figurative however, which makes the study offered here both interesting and a little unusual. Inscribed ‘Blasimon’, it is likely to have been created during a sketching trip to this particular area of France; perhaps a study of a preexisting window or a design inspired by his time there. Compositionally however, the

design bears close similarities to his first public stained glass commission for Oundle School’s chapel, created in 1954 at the instigation of his friend John Betjeman. Here too we see a trio of closely flanked male forms adopting a subtle contrapposto position, with green and red hues tonally dominating the motif.

£8,000-12,000

In 1926 Laura Knight travelled to Baltimore, America to join her husband Harold Knight who was in the process of completing a series of portrait commissions of the surgeons at John Hopkins hospital. Knight was given permission to draw and paint in the maternity and children’s wards which were racially segregated. There she produced some of the finest portraits of her career, many of black women and children, nurses and patients on the hospital ward. These works show a sensitivity towards the subject that marked Knight out from her contemporary figurative and portrait painters and contributed to her being made the second ever female Associate of the Royal Academy the following year. The present painting of a young woman perched on the

102

edge of a hospital bed is a particularly sensual example of the work from this period. The theme of the semi-clad nude is recurrent in Knight’s work; many of the paintings surrounding the theme of the ballet and theatre show actors and dancers backstage in the process of dressing or undressing - the tension between being clothed and unclothed is captured by Knight as a moment that is both exciting and natural. Here, the model, possibly a pregnant patient at the hospital, is shown with one shoe half on, the other under the bed. Her undergarments ride up around her waist and her blue dress rests on the bed. She appears distracted, as though she is glancing at

her reflection in an unseen mirror. Lit by artificial light, the colours are cool and the atmosphere is one of introspection. The light on the skin of the sitter emphasises her firm smooth flesh and the volume of her body. Knight’s portrait and figurative painting from the mid 1920s show a movement towards sculptural form and solid permanence. She later wrote ‘I was determined to get the last fraction of richness in the modelling, and a thirddimensional quality, such as I had not previously accomplished.’ The subject of this painting and the sculptural effects are a conscious nod to Knight’s friend Dod Procter whose painting of a sleeping woman

‘Morning’ (Tate Gallery illustrated below) won Picture of the Year at the RA summer exhibition in 1927. To celebrate her election to the Royal Academy in 1927, British Pathé made a short film of Laura Knight painting in her studio, surrounded by nudes and portrait studies from John Hopkins hospital. The film shows Knight at the peak of her success, an Academician (before her husband), producing paintings with impact and subtlety. Dressing is a compelling and finely painted example from this period of highly ambitious work.

£20,000-30,000

Born in St. Petersburg in 1904, Svetoslav Roerich spent much of his adult life abroad. Studying in Sweden, England and the U.S.A. at Columbia University and the Harvard School of Architecture, he eventually moved to India in the 1930s. His father Nicholas Roerich, a fellow artist to whom there is a museum devoted in New York, was living as a mystic in the Himalayan Mountains at the time. This was an area Svetoslav would also forge a deep connection with. He became close to the local population of the Kulu Valley, attracted by the romanticism of their colourful clothing and traditions and their rustic way of life in the snowy foothills. The painting offered here for sale is likely to relate to his travels in Tibet or Mongolia. The sitter offers him a warm smile, a testament to the high regard in which he was held by the locals of the region. The background is boldly abstracted and typically colourful. Roerich adopted the emotive use of colour

106

from the tradition of Indian miniatures, assimilating it with the Post-Impressionist influences he had acquired during his studies in Europe. The artist purportedly prepared many of the pigments he used personally, based on his knowledge of Himalayan plants.

Svetoslav’s artwork combined Indian artistic heritage, a desire to chart the realities of indigenous populations and a passion, inherited from his father, to explore the spiritual strivings of humanity. He was well-known within Indian society, the friend of important academics and

statesmen, and in 1945 married India’s leading actress Devika Rani. Roerich was devoted to India and remained there until his death in 1993.

£2,000-3,000

Oswaldo Guayasamin was an important South American artist whose legacy as a vocal fighter against war, inequality and the rights of indigenous populations is globally recognised. Born and educated in Quito, Ecuador in 1919, Guayasamin quickly rose to renown, winning both the Barcelona

and São Paulo Biennials whilst still in his early thirties. He also received the French Legion of Honour and was awarded the UNESCO José Martí Prize. His murals can be found in the Central University of Quito, Barajas Airport in Madrid, the UNESCO headquarters in Paris and the Latin American Parliament in São Paulo.

His artwork, which also encompasses sculpture, is largely expressionistic in style with a marked debt to Picasso. In this work, an official portrait of the Ecuadorian Minister Luis Antonio Penaherrera, he adopts a slightly more naturalistic technique. A vivid, yellowtoned palette and bold backdrop is interestingly

juxtaposed with the minister’s neat and quietly authoritative appearance, conveying a sense of the sitter’s inward dynamism of character. It is a pleasingly period work; highly evocative in mood and tone of its 1950’s origins, from the sitter’s wide-brimmed spectacles to the patterned décor of the setting.

£50,000-70,000

Though recognition was never an issue for Winifred Nicholson - she was born into an eminent politically and artistically active family, exhibited regularly and sold consistently - interpretation of her career has been somewhat blighted by her status as ‘first wife of Ben Nicholson’. It is only in recent decades that her valuable contribution to 20th century British art has been evaluated in an individual sense. Hitting her artistic stride and finding her niche by the mid-1920s, her work has a rare focus and strength of personality. She is now felt to have been pivotal to her husband’s development

of the use of colour. Echoes of her technique - the purity of colour, the freedom of form - can be detected in the work of artists she frequently worked alongside such as Ivon Hitchens and Christopher Wood. Nicholson’s work was thematic but never repetitive. Her most common compositional device was that of the informal still life arrangement set somewhat surreally before a panoramic landscape, the work represented here being an archetypal example. Her work is in many ways deceptive, its sophistication only evident upon a closer reading. It is not naïve but instead fluidly articulate, highly dream-like as opposed to overtly realistic, and emotionally evocative rather than light-heartedly simplistic. There is a sense that her paintings contain much of herself. The parameters of the interior and exterior of the scene are blurred, as too are the parameters of what the artist sees and what she feels. Nicholson described this process in a letter to her daughter Kate, the same year this picture was painted:

“…All painting is to me painting of air and sky – that holds colours and light – not pictures of objects.” The foreground and horizon are typically merged here, anchored by the strong yellows and aquamarines in the middle of the composition. A keen colour theorist, Nicholson’s fascination with the quality and play of light led her to visit the West Coast of Scotland on an almost annual basis for many years. Here she found the northern light pleasingly crisp and silvery, slanting through objects as opposed to simply falling directly upon them.

was a battle to keep them from entering the cottage. Here, Nicholson humorously captures a family of scruffy black hens fleeing the scene having made one such an attempt. An important work, it contains all of her quintessential elements and encapsulates the virtuosity of her middle period. A favourite among curators and academics for many years, it was a star picture in the National Gallery of Scotland’s 2003 exhibition of Nicholson’s Scottish paintings and was additionally featured on the cover of the catalogue for her 1987 retrospective at the Tate.

Though stylistically a modernist, Nicholson felt that ideologically she was working within the romantic tradition. The folklore of the Hebridean islands and the timeless lifestyles of the inhabitants struck a chord, enhancing the ethereal element within her work. Her happiness during her time in Scotland is tangible in ‘Cheeky Chicks’ (1951), painted on a trip to the remote island of South Uist where she stayed with a local crofter and his family. Various dogs, cats and livestock roamed about the yard and it

£25,000-35,000

Dunira Hillside is likely to have been painted in 1959 when Eardley travelled to Comrie in Perthshire. There she visited the poet and artist Ian Hamilton Finlay and his wife, who were living a simple rural life. Eardley was attracted to primitive existence; she would have been drawn to the Finlays who lived in a shepherd’s cottage, earning enough to sustain themselves through fishing, shepherding and manual labour. Eardley had learnt to paint open vistas while living on the coast at Catterline - capturing the full panorama that a sea view offers. The lessons from Catterline have here been applied to the hilly landscape of Dunira. Eardley’s preliminary pastel sketches show that she would start in

one place with one sheet of paper but as the vista took her eye out to left and right she would need to add sheets of paper to either side of the original sheet in order to extend the panorama beyond the confines of the first sheet. Thus, she did not set out to paint a specific scene or view but would select a position from which to paint and from there she would twist and turn, sometimes executing a number of paintings from one spot. Painting in the open air, amidst hedgerows, burns and ditches Eardley was most at home. She became completely immersed in her environment, standing waist deep in grass until she was half submerged. She would leave her easel and paints on the ground overnight, the chosen spot being so far off the path. Painting outdoors came with its challenges and Eardley often wrote of battling with the elements, knowing

that her art was at its best during rain storms, grey skies and harsh winds. The rough texture of her painting, with spots of thick impasto, scored in areas by a palette knife and other areas of thin sweeping paint, capture expressively, the drama of the Scottish landscape. Here the rich colours of the autumnal palette: russet red, gold and blue-grey are applied almost in a patchwork with blocks of jewelled colour against the earthy tones. The suggestion of sheep in the landscape is merely hinted at and the landscape itself is loosely defined. In the centre of the composition, a dark rectangle suggests an outbuilding beside a fence. By painting with energy and perhaps a degree of abandon, the landscape becomes alive with expression - piecing together the details of the scene is left to the viewer’s imagination.

(SCOTTISH 1895-1965) TULIPS IN A WHITE JUG Signed, signed and inscribed verso, oil on board 51cm x 43cm (20in x 17in) Literature: Illustrated cover and plate 27 of 'Redpath', by Patrick Bourne, pub. Atelier Books, 1989 as 'White Tulips in a White Vase'

£70,000-90,000

‘As far back as I can remember I loved painting white‘ Anne Redpath reflected..‘when I was a student in Italy, when I had a room in a pensione on the Lugarno in Florence and the walls were white, rough white plaster. There was a gay, orange and red rug hung on a wall .... coming from the heat of Florence in summer to this cool room with the shutters keeping out the heat, and the lovely bit of colour which had far more intensity because it was against white’. The calming effects of white as well as its ability to highlight the colours around it are adeptly demonstrated in Tulips in a White Jug. During the 1940s Redpath used white with blue, lilac and

136

mauve, delighting in the many shades that this palette offered, allowing her to enjoy the physical expressiveness of oil paint, its texture and the visible signs of her brushwork which stand out on a white surface better than any other. At this time she also employed a technique of soaking the oil out of the paints so that the pigment had a chalky finish, similar to fresco painting. Despite the pale palette, there is quiet, solid strength in her still life paintings of the 1940s. Tulips in a White Jug, is highlighted as an example of this by Redpath’s biographer, Patrick Bourne, who, (illustrating the painting on the front cover) wrote ‘it successfully conveys an impression of mass and a feeling of sculptural quality. The objects seem to occupy their own definite space, an illusion in complete contrast to her later paintings where the objects appear to float and the space has been flattened’. The simplicity of this composition: three white

tulips in a white vase on a white cloth is beguiling. Closer inspection reveals that the cloth is patterned with letters. Patterns found on rugs, tablecloths and painted furniture feature in many of Redpath’s paintings. Her father was a textile weaver and his designs had a lasting effect on her; in some of Redpath’s paintings the colourful motifs woven into rugs and cloths appear to jump off the fabric surface. Here, however, the pattern is subtle - a means of breaking up the white surface and introducing a touch of pink. A resonating harmony is achieved through Redpath’s perfect placing of objects, the light, shadows and colour and the energy with which the paint is applied, in dabs of overlapping patches, blue upon blue, white upon white. There is a timelessness in Tulips in a White Jug which allows the painting to be seen as both classical and modern. Deceptively simple at first glance, it has enduring appeal.

STANDARD TERMS & CONDITIONS OF SALE

prevailing by law at the date of sale and is payable by buyers of relevant lots.

Lyon & Turnbull carries on business with bidders, buyers and all those present in the auction room prior to, or in connection, with a sale on the following General Conditions and on such other terms, conditions and notices as may be referred to herein.

6. PAYMENT

1. DEFINITIONS In these Conditions: (a) “Auctioneer” means the firm of Lyon & Turnbull or its authorised auctioneer, as appropriate; (b) “deliberate forgery” means an imitation made with the intention of deceiving as to authorship, origin, date, age, period, culture or source but which is unequivocally described in the catalogue as being the work of a particular creator and which, at the date of the sale, had a value materially less than it would have had if it had been in accordance with the description; (c) “hammer price” means the level of bidding reached (at or above any reserve) when the auctioneer brings down the hammer; (d) “terms of consignment” means the stipulated terms and rates of commission on which Lyon & Turnbull accepts instructions from sellers or their agents; (e) “total amount due” means the hammer price in respect of the lot sold together with any premium, Value Added Tax chargeable and any additional charges payable by a defaulting buyer under these Conditions; (f) “sale proceeds” means the net amount due to the seller, being the hammer price of the lot sold less commission at the stated rate, Value Added Tax chargeable and any other amounts due to us by the seller in whatever capacity and however arising; (g) “You”, “Your”, etc. refer to the buyer as identified in Condition 2. (h) The singular includes the plural and vice versa as appropriate. 2. BIDDING PROCEDURES AND THE BUYER (a) Bidders are required to register their particulars before bidding and to satisfy any security arrangements before entering the auction room to view or bid; (b) the maker of the highest bid accepted by the auctioneer conducting the sale shall be the buyer at the hammer price and any dispute about a bid, which must be raised before the next lot is offered, shall be settled at the auctioneer’s absolute discretion. (c) Bidders shall be deemed to act as principals. (d) Once made, no bid may be withdrawn. (e) Our right to bid on behalf of the seller is expressly reserved up to the amount of any reserve and the right to refuse any bid is also reserved. 3. INCREMENTS Bidding increments shall be at the auctioneer’s sole discretion. 4. THE PURCHASE PRICE The buyer shall pay the hammer price together with a premium thereon. 25% up to £25,000 / 20% thereafter. VAT will be charged on the premium at the rate imposed by law. 5. VALUE ADDED TAX Value Added Tax on the hammer price is imposed by law on all items affixed with an asterisk (*) or dagger (†). Value Added Tax is charged at the appropriate rate

142

(1) Immediately a lot is sold you will: (a) pay to us the total amount due in cash or in such other way as is agreed by us. We accept cash, bank transfer (details on request), Switch or Debit Cards and Visa or MasterCard (please note there is a surcharge of 2% (VAT included) when using credit cards). We do not accept American Express. (2) any payments by you to us may be applied by us towards any sums owing from you to us on any account whatever without regard to any directions of you or your agent, whether express or implied. 7. TITLE AND COLLECTION OF PURCHASES (1) The ownership of any lots purchased shall not pass to you until you have made payment in full to us of the total amount due. (2) You shall at your own risk and expense take away any lots that you have purchased and paid for not later than four working days following the day of the auction or upon the clearance of any cheque used for payment after which you shall be responsible for any removal, storage and other associated charges. (3) No purchase can be claimed or removed until it has been paid for. (4) It is the buyer’s responsibility to ascertain collection procedures, particularly if the sale is not being held at our main saleroom and the potential storage charges for lots not collected by the appropriate time. 8. REMEDIES FOR NON-PAYMENT OR FAILURE TO COLLECT PURCHASES (1) If any lot is not paid for in full and taken away in accordance with these Conditions or if there is any other breach of these Conditions, we, as agent for the seller and on their behalf, shall at our absolute discretion and without prejudice to any other rights we may have, be entitled to exercise one or more of the following rights and remedies: (a) to proceed against you for damages for breach of contract; (b) to rescind the sale of that lot and/or any other lots sold by us to you; (c) to resell the lot (by auction or private treaty) in which case you shall be responsible for any resulting deficiency in the total amount due (after crediting any part payment and adding any resale costs). Any surplus so arising shall belong to the seller; (d) to remove, store and insure the lot at your expense and, in the case of storage, either at our premises or elsewhere; (e) to charge interest at a rate of 1.5% per month above the current base rate on the total amount due, to the extent it remains unpaid for more than four working days after the sale; (f) to retain that or any other lot sold to you until you pay the total amount due; (g) to reject or ignore bids from you or your agent at future auctions or to impose conditions before any such bids shall be accepted; (h) to apply any proceeds of sale of other lots due or in future becoming due to you towards the settlement of the total amount due and to exercise a lien (that is a right to retain possession of) any of your property in our possession for any purpose until the debt due is satisfied. (2) We shall, as agent for the seller and on their behalf pursue these rights and remedies only as far as is reasonable to make appropriate recovery in respect of breach of these Conditions

9. THIRD PARTY LIABILITY All members of the public on our premises are there at their own risk and must note the lay-out of the accommodation and security arrangements. Accordingly neither the auctioneer nor our employees or agents shall incur liability for death or personal injury (except as required by law by reason of our negligence) or similarly for the safety of the property of persons visiting prior to or at a sale. 10. COMMISSION BIDS While prospective buyers are strongly advised to attend the auction and are always responsible for any decision to bid for a particular lot and shall be assumed to have carefully inspected and satisfied themselves as to its condition we shall if so instructed clearly and in writing execute bids on their behalf. Neither the auctioneer or our employees or agents shall be responsible for any failure to do so. Where two or more commission bids at the same level are recorded we reserve the right in our absolute discretion to prefer the first bid so made. 11. WARRANTY OF TITLE AND AVAILABILITY The seller warrants to the auctioneer and to you that the seller is the true owner of the property consigned or is properly authorised by the true owner to consign it for sale and is able to transfer good and marketable title to the property free from any third party claims. 12. AGENCY The auctioneer normally acts as agent only and disclaims any responsibility for default by sellers or buyers. 13. TERMS OF SALE The seller acknowledges that lots are sold subject to the stipulations of these Conditions in their entirety and on the Terms of Consignment as notified to the consignor at the time of the entry of the lot. 14. STANDARD VENDOR FEES AND CHARGES (Subject to VAT) (1) Commission: 15% of the first £3000 and 10% thereafter is charged on the selling price of each lot (subject to a minimum charge of £30). Loss and damage warranty: 1.5% on value of lots sold. Photography: max £40 mono per lot, max £250 colour. Internet Marketing Service: £10 per lot. (2) If a vendor wishes to withdraw a lot organized for sale, a withdrawal fee will apply; (a) If withdrawn over 28 working days prior to the sale, this will be charged at 10% of the mid estimate along with any ancilliary incurred (such as photography), all subject to VAT at the current rate. (b) If withdrawn within 28 working days of the sale, this will be charged at 20% of the mid estimate along with any ancilliary incurred (such as photography), all subject to VAT at the current rate. 15. DESCRIPTIONS AND CONDITION (1) While we seek to describe lots accurately, it may be impractical for us to carry out exhaustive due diligence on each lot. Prospective buyers are given ample opportunities to view and inspect before any sale and they (and any independent experts on their behalf) must satisfy themselves as to the accuracy of any description applied to a lot. Prospective buyers also bid on the understanding that, inevitably, representations or statements by us as to authorship, genuineness, origin, date, age, provenance, condition or estimated selling price involve matters of opinion. We undertake that any such opinion shall be honestly and reasonably

held and accept liability for opinions given negligently or fraudulently. Subject to the foregoing neither we the auctioneer or our employees or agents or the seller accept liability for the correctness of such opinions and all conditions and warranties, whether relating to description, condition or quality of lots, express, implied or statutory, are hereby excluded. This Condition is subject to the next following Condition concerning deliberate forgeries and applies save as provided for in paragraph 6 “information to buyers”. (2) Private treaty sales made under these Conditions are deemed to be sales by auction for purposes of consumer legislation. 16. FORGERIES Notwithstanding the preceding Condition, any Lot which proves to be a deliberate forgery (as defined) may be returned to us by you within 21 days of the auction provided it is in the same condition as when bought, and is accompanied by particulars identifying it from the relevant catalogue description and a written statement of defects. If we are satisfied from the evidence presented that the lot is a deliberate forgery we shall refund the money paid by you for the lot including any buyer’s premium provided that (1) if the catalogue description reflected the accepted view of scholars and experts as at the date of sale or (2) you personally are not able to transfer a good and marketable title to us, you shall have no rights under this condition. The right of return provided by this Condition is additional to any right or remedy provided by law or by these Conditions of Sale. GENERAL 17. We shall have the right at our discretion, to refuse admission to our premises or attendance at our auctions by any person. 18 (1) Any right to compensation for losses liabilities and expenses incurred in respect of and as a result of any breach of these Conditions and any exclusions provided by them shall be available to the seller and/or the auctioneer as appropriate. (2). Such rights and exclusions shall extend to and be deemed to be for the benefit of employees and agents of the seller and/or the auctioneer who may themselves enforce them. 19. Any notice to any buyer, seller, bidder or viewer may be given by first class mail in which case it shall be deemed to have been received by the addressee 48 hours after posting. 20. Special terms may be used in catalogue descriptions of particular classes of items (Books, Jewellery, paintings, guns, firearms etc) in which case the descriptions must be interpreted in accordance with any glossary or guidance notes appearing in the catalogue. These notices and terms will also form part of our terms and conditions of sales. 21. Any indulgence extended to bidders buyers or sellers by us notwithstanding the strict terms of these Conditions or of the Terms of Consignment shall affect the position at the relevant time only and in respect of that particular concession only; in all other respects these Conditions shall be construed as having full force and effect. 22. Scottish law applies to the interpretation of these Conditions.
