LOUIS BOSWORTH HURT Born in 1856 in Ashbourne, Kent, Louis Bosworth Hunt is best known for his evocative landscape paintings. Hurt lived in Derbyshire with his wife Harriet where he painted the local moors and his own herd of highland cattle. Part of his early training was as the pupil of George Turner, who was dubbed ‘Derbyshire’s John Constable’. Most of Hurt’s work was carried out at his home in Ivonbrook, and he also owned a cottage in North Wales, where he would paint autumn scenes of Snowdonia and the surrounding landscape, however, his foremost inspiration lay in the wilderness of the Scottish Highlands. In this painting Hurt masterfully depicts the Scottish landscape, capturing its magnificent scale and grandeur. In the foreground Hurt depicts a herd of highland cattle, whilst conveying a sense of atmospheric drama through the swirling mist and the storm passing over the mountains.

18 LOUIS BOSWORTH HURT (BRITISH 1856-1929) IN THE HIGHLANDS Signed and dated 1900, oil on canvas 51cm x 76cm (20in x 30in) Provenance: Richard Green Fine Paintings, London

£8,000-12,000

Hurt continued in the tradition of Victorian landscape painting that is most famously depicted by artists such as Horatio McCulloch, Edwin Landseer and John Constable. A prolific painter, he exhibited thirteen paintings at the Royal Academy, starting in the 1880s, as well as at the Royal Society of British Artists. His paintings were highly sought after by collectors for their poetic sense of nostalgia during a period when the effects of rapid industrialisation caused a widespread sense of longing for a rapidly disappearing way of life.

27 SAM BOUGH R.S.A. (SCOTTISH 1822-1878) FIREWORKS OVER EDINBURGH 10TH MARCH 1863 Signed and indistinctly dated, inscribed on a contemporary label verso ‘The Marriage of the Prince of Wales’, oil on panel 24cm x 54.5cm (9.5in x 21.5in) Note: There is a contemporary cutting from The Courant newspaper verso dated March 16, 1863 which states ‘We had the pleasure of seeing in Mr Bough’s studio on Saturday last, a small sketch in oils of the splendid illuminations which gave such universal satisfaction on Tuesday evening. The sketch is taken from the Calton Hill; and the long line of Princes Street filled with a living tide of happy and good humoured sightseers; the deep valley between the Old and New Town; the Scott Monument; the steep slope of the Castle bank blazing with padelle (sic), the grand old fortress itself with its battlements and embrasures lit up with flickering flames; the spire of St.Giles with its coronets of coloured lights and the beautiful outlines of the dome of St.George’s defined by long lines of pure white light are all brought before us within the space of a foot square ......No artist in our school is so well fitted as Mr Bough to depict ‘The festal city’s blaze’.

£4,000-6,000

‘No artist in our school is so well fitted as Mr. Bough to depict the festal city’s blaze’ - The Courant newspaper Considered to be one of the most influential and prolific Scottish landscape painters of the 19th century, Sam Bough was a self-taught artist who spent much of his career working in Scotland. Born in 1822 in Carlisle, Bough settled in Manchester where he worked as a scene painter in the Theatre Royal. After moving to Glasgow he continued to paint whilst working at the New Princes Theatre. Bough’s reputation as a topographical and landscape painter grew during the 1850’s, and by the time he resettled in Edinburgh he had established himself as a successful landscape artist. Whilst living in the capital he created some of his most important paintings. Fireworks over Edinburgh 10th March 1863 masterfully depicts the city amidst its celebrations of the marriage of Prince Edward VII, the eldest son of Queen Victoria and Prince Albert. Bough’s experience of working as a theatre scene painter is reflected through the confidence by which he works in a small scale and effortlessly captures the fleeing atmospheric effects. Sketched from the top of Carlton Hill, the painting is both a celebration of the wedding and the city itself. The firework display illuminates the city’s landmarks including the fortress, Scott Monument and spires of St. Giles Cathedral. Bough’s interest in the depiction of the changing effects of light is reflected through the dramatic representation of the fiery night sky over the city. Whilst in the foreground a tide of sightseers adds to the sense of vitality to the scene. Bough’s restless energy is revealed through his expressive colouring which effortlessly captures the mood of the joyous event. His spontaneity, loose technique and interest in capturing the fleeing atmospheric effects establishes him as an important predecessor of the Scottish Impressionists, paving the way for the development towards a freer, plein air style. Contemporary historical records reveal the extent to which this Royal Wedding was a national celebration. In the English village of Goudhurst, there was a full day of public celebrations, starting with the ‘distribution of meat to the widowers, widows, sick poor and aged,’ followed by a procession, different servings of tea and refreshments, and a large bonfire in the evening. In the week following the wedding, a whole ox was roasted on the Plain, and the meat distributed to over 400 people over the course of the next few days. A rib from the ox remains in the collection of the Goudhurst historical society. The sale of this striking painting coincides with another Royal wedding, that of the Prince of Wales and Meghan Markle on 19th May 2018.

(SCOTTISH 1882-1931) ’EXOTIC’ Signed, oil on canvas 113cm x 87cm (44.5in x 34.25in) Exhibited: Royal Glasgow Institute of the Fine Arts 1924, no.283, Ill.48 Kelvingrove Museum and Art Gallery, Glasgow Girls - Women in Art and Design 1880-1920, 1990-91, Illustrated fig. 315 Note: The model for the painting was Rita McIlraith but the artist did not want to use her name in the title and hence it was called ‘Exotic.’

£8,000-12,000

Norah Neilson Gray was a Scottish artist known for her striking portraits, and remarkable ability to capture the essence of the sitter. She achieved international status and recognition during her lifetime, and was one of the most esteemed female painters of the early twentieth century. Born in 1882 in Helensburgh, Gray began her artistic career at ‘The Studio’; a private drawing studio where young ladies received artistic instruction before they were granted entry into the schools of art. The studio received notable visits from Glasgow Boy artists, such as Alexander Roche and John Lavery. Soon after, in 1901, Neilson gained entry to the Glasgow School of Art. Impressively, whilst still a student, she exhibited at the Salon in Paris, as well as the Glasgow Institute and the Royal Academy, where she was to continue to show until 1926. After graduating in 1906, she stayed at the school to teach fashion and design. By 1910 Gray had her own studio, and held her first solo show at Warneuke’s Gallery in Glasgow. Following the outbreak of the First World War, she went to France to work as a Voluntary Aid Detachment nurse for the Scottish Women’s Hospital. During her limited free time she continued to paint, and used her experience to produce some of her most emotionally powerful work. After the end of the war she returned to Glasgow where she quickly began to receive a large number of commissions for portraits, many from well-known Glaswegians. In the spirit of Gustav Klimt, Gray was known for giving prominence to flowers, textiles and other

decorative elements. In 1921 her talent was further recognised when she became the first women to be appointed to the hanging committee of the Royal Glasgow Institute of Fine Arts. Following this, her successful career continued, and she regularly exhibited in Scotland, London and Paris. At the time of her early death in 1931, she was considered ‘the foremost Scottish female painter’. Exotic (1923) was painted at the height of Gray’s artistic career - the same year she won her second Bronze Medal at the Paris Salon. The painting was kept as a ‘masterpiece’ work, on show in her studio to demonstrate her skill to potential patrons. Gray’s talent and experience as a design teacher is reflected in the sitter’s exquisite yellow dress, fashionable necklace and matching bright earrings. Surrounded by an array of flowers, which subtly echo the patterns on her clothing, the image reinterprets notions of orientalism and the exotic. She is depicted against a stark background which allows the viewer to focus and marvel at her beauty. The dress reveals the sitter’s shoulders and pale skin, which is complimented by her dark hair and striking red lips. Depicted sitting down with her hands clasped, her direct gaze confronts the viewer, whilst her rather sombre expression juxtaposes with the bright and colourful clothing. The piece is an excellent example of Gray’s masterful handling of paint, and remarkable talent as a portraitist.

46 WALLER HUGH PATON R.S.A., R.S.W. (SCOTTISH 1828-1895) DREAMTHORP Signed with a monogram and dated 1865, old label to stretcher verso with title and inscription, oil on canvas, arched top 73cm x 137cm (29in x 54in) Provenance: John Mood, Rosehall for £100 c. 1865 Exhibited: Royal Scottish Academy 1865, no.437 Literature: Waller H. Paton, Pen and Pencil memoranda of Exhibited works by me in Oils and Watercolour, Vol 1 1848-1865, unpublished m.s

£8,000-12,000

The Pre-Raphaelite movement had a profound influence on 19th century Scottish painting and this is none more evident than in the vivid sunsets and naturalism of Waller Hugh Paton’s idealistic landscapes. The younger sibling of artist Sir Joseph Noel Paton and sculptor Amelia Robertson Hill, Waller Hugh Paton was almost entirely self-taught, except for a few lessons in watercolour by John Adam Houston. Working mainly in both watercolour and oil, Paton’s success grew rapidly with his landscapes enjoying enormous popularity with the public. His reputation earned him a royal commission from Queen Victoria in 1862 and he became a member of the Royal Scottish Academy in 1965, where he exhibited extensively. His remarkable skill for depicting the natural beauty of Scotland can be seen clearly in Dreamthorp. Named after a group of essays by renowned Scottish poet, Alexander Smith, Paton clearly draws influence from the work. Based on the town of Linlithgow,

Dreamthorp is a fictional place created by Smith. He uses vivid descriptions reminiscent of the West Lothian town such as ‘a castle, a chapel, a lake, a straggling strip of grey houses, with a blue film of smoke over all, lying embossed in emerald.’ These descriptions captured the imagination of Paton, who developed his painting from sketches of Linlithgow completed the previous year. The sunset bathes the palace and loch in a warm, inviting light, with the figure in the boat contributing to a sense of peaceful solitude, framed on either side by greenery and nature. In perhaps a playful reaction to Smith’s lines ‘I make a frame of my fingers, and look at my picture. On the walls of the next academy’s exhibition will hang nothing half so beautiful,’ Paton’s picture perfectly complements Smith’s vivid and atmospheric descriptions. Painted during the peak of Paton’s career, the work is an excellent example by one of the most prominent Scottish landscape painters working in the Pre-Raphaelite style.

£8,000-12,000

The Mural for St Peters Primary School was painted by the Scottish artist John Duncan, as part of the Sir Patrick Geddes initiative to promote art in public areas. Geddes sought to apply his motto, Vivendo Discimus, ‘by living we learn,’ to every aspect of his life and work. He founded the Edinburgh Social Union, endeavouring to make art accessible to all social classes, so that everyone had the opportunity to learn from it.

Geddes felt strongly that unlike pictures in books, mural paintings shaped the physical environment. Based on the principal that art was essential to public good, murals were envisioned as permanent images that could be seen daily by the impressionable young, in hope that they might instil values or inspire belief. John Duncan, a close associate of Geddes, and one of the principal artists for his periodical ‘Evergreen’, created this mural for St Peter’s Roman Catholic School in Edinburgh in 1912. Reflecting his experience as a teacher in the early 1900s, Duncan attempts to enter the child’s imagination, by creating a vivid and exciting piece with scenes from nursery rhymes, mythology and fairy tales.

£40,000-60,000

When this painting was begun in 1886, James Guthrie was struggling with the use of larger canvases, often leaving them unfinished in his studio. One such picture of fieldworkers pitting potatoes was subject to his frustration due to the light and the shadows refusing to come together in the way he envisioned. It was destroyed in a turn of anger. He wrote to his cousin, James Gardiner, requesting a university calendar in order to give up his art and go back to studying law. Gardiner convinced him to keep painting, giving him a commission to paint a portrait of his father, and to return to Glasgow to escape the isolation of winters in Cockburnspath. Luckily, there were other similarly challenging canvases which did not meet the same fate. One of Guthrie’s most well known works, In the Orchard, was painted during this troublesome period, also in Cockburnspath. Now belonging to the National Galleries of Scotland, the painting was critically acclaimed throughout Europe and the UK and widely acknowledged as one of the greatest paintings to come out of the Glasgow Boys’ movement.

Note: Bearing letter from Guthrie’s son verso ‘This unsigned oil picture (a landscape with cattle) was executed by my father the late Sir James Guthrie, RSA. It was painted about the year 1886 but not finished; and later, some two or three years before his death, he had it relined, with the intention of completing it, but he did little further work upon it. The picture was in his studio at the time of his death. It is included in the catalogue compiled Sir James L. Caw for his biography of my father, under the title ‘Cattle in Orchard’. Signed J. W. B. Guthrie and dated 27th June 1932.

Mentioned in the catalogue in Caw’s monumental biography of Guthrie under the title of Cattle in Orchard this painting is stated as belonging to Sir F.C. Gardiner. This refers to the shipbuilder and wellregarded benefactor of Glasgow University, Frederick Gardiner, who was Guthrie’s cousin and the subject of a portrait by Guthrie which belongs to Glasgow Museums. Cattle in Orchard lay unfinished for many years, however, three years before Guthrie’s death it was brought back into his studio with the intent to complete it, indicating that he had not given up on the idea of finishing the painting. It is very similar in style to In the Orchard, depicting the light coming through the fruit-bearing trees onto a woman and cattle standing in the orchard. The reverse of the painting features a letter from Guthrie’s son, explaining the picture’s history.

JOAN EARDLEY Joan Eardley is recognised as one of the great Scottish artistic talents of the 20th century, capturing the essence of some distinctly Scottish people and places; from the energy and community of a quickly disappearing urban way of life in the east end of Glasgow, to the drama and brutality of varying weather effects on the small fishing village of Catterline on the North-East coast. In the two scenes offered here, Eardley turns her original eye and hand to the streets of Paris and her favoured home of Glasgow, though in a rare turn, this time she focusses on the structures her subjects inhabited rather than the subjects themselves. In Glasgow Tenement with Grafitti, it is a delight to see Eardley working in oil to capture the vivid texture and palette of a Glasgow tenement. She has cropped the scene so specifically, and worked so loosely that it takes the viewer a moment to adapt and recognise what they are seeing. As the subject comes into focus, we are drawn to the details – the strikingly graphic graffiti, the little heads peeking through the window, the cat curled up on the steps – that reveal the community and life inhabiting this dilapidated building. It is a strikingly accomplished artwork, and a visually powerful image, yet it also works as an historical record of a community way of life that Eardley knew, even as she was painting, was coming to an end.

In Houses, Paris, Eardley takes a more typical viewpoint, depicting the structure of Parisian apartments, revealing their distinctive character, and intriguing the viewer as to what lives and dramas may be occurring inside. The work unfolds across two pieces of paper that the artist has joined – a typical action of Eardley, and an adaptation that only adds to the appeal for her collectors. She was a committed artist, who took her work very seriously, yet she rarely became precious about the condition or approach of individual pieces, happy to add extra expanses of paper when required, or work loosely on the rough texture of sandpaper, to stuff sketches in drawers where they gained additional tears and textures. When working in Catterline, she would even go as far as to leave her large oil works outside subject to exposure to the elements, feeling this experience improved rather than ruined her art. ‘Houses, Paris’ is mostly worked in shades of brown and grey, exactly as we would expect, yet Eardley is able to lift and energise the composition with flashes of bright blue and green. In both these works, an order and vision arises out of an image that at first glance may seem or feel to be messy or chaotic. In essence, this is Eardley’s distinct skill in art; she was always led by her dynamic, chaotic subjects – the innocence of the street children of Townhead, the awe-inspiring drama of the Catterline coast, and her techniques were guided by them. These were difficult, ever-changing subjects but somehow she manged to engage with them, experience them and capture an essence of them for us; revealing with care both the order and the chaos, the beauty and the mess, an artistry and the reality.

91 [§] JOHN BULLOCH SOUTER (SCOTTISH 1890-1972) THE BREAKDOWN Signed and dated 1926-62, oil on board 51cm x 53.5cm (20in x 21in) Exhibited: Two Temple Place, Rhythm and Reaction: The Age of Jazz in Britain, 2018, ‘The study of this painting and its reception provides an important example of jazz provoking reaction, ranging from abhorrence to devotion, when first the idea and then the sound of music entered the consciousness of the British public.’

£40,000-60,000

John Bulloch Souter was a Scottish artist, best known for his portraits, and successful copies after Old Masters. Yet one painting by him caused such a furore, that it made headlines in the international press and was removed from display at the Royal Academy’s Summer Exhibition. The painting was The Breakdown, and the year was 1926. The Breakdown is a strikingly accomplished painting. Yet it was the subject that caused controversy, as the painting depicts a black saxophonist, sitting on a shattered classical statue of Minerva, the goddess of music, while a naked white woman dances to his music. The woman appears to move as though in a trance, totally abandoning herself to the music, and her discarded clothing and shoes are visible in the far corner of the composition. Within days of its exhibition, the British Colonial office contacted the Royal Academy to request the removal of the picture for ‘reasons of state, not art’ and ‘in the interest of the empire.’ Souter claimed that his painting was intended to ‘to illustrate the tendency nowadays for Jazz influence to permeate our daily lives,’ and this was true, jazz was beginning to filter through into wider cultural life and in many circles the radical change this represented, towards freedom and a breaking down of strict social norms, was met with celebration and enthusiasm. Yet, at the same time, the British Empire, and the wider racism it represented, were obviously felt to be under threat, and the incident was featured in news stories as far as the U.S.A., India and South Africa and records made of society figures making comments such as, ‘it would make ruling our natives difficult.’

As cultural researcher George McKay explains, the idea of Jazz had become at this time a catch-all for wider concerns about new social freedoms in the post-war era, as well as the perceived instability of the empire; everything felt to be ‘disruptive, chaotic and dangerous,’ could be located within this scene, and thus read either positively, or negatively, into the picture. We can even read Souter’s title as part of the dichotomy around the reception of jazz; on one hand the freedom it represented, but on the other the suspicions around its subversive nature. The very term ‘breakdown’ could be referring to a musical concept, or in a wider sense, The Breakdown of the established order. Most surprisingly, some of the British music establishment reacted strikingly negatively, the editor of Melody Maker, spoke out on the picture on behalf of the whole music scene, claiming ‘We jazz musicians … protest against, and repudiate the juxtaposition of an undraped white girl with a black man,’ the picture represents a ‘perversive danger to the community and the best thing that could happen to it is to have it … burnt!’ In fact, Souter did destroy the original painting following the outcry, but kept his original drawings and studies. The subject and painting obviously remained important to him, as much later in his career, he painted a new version, which he dated 1926-62, acknowledging the time that had passed. In 2018, the story of this sensation demonstrates the ability of art to capture attitudes, its power in upsetting standards and the wide-ranging variations in interpretation of a single image. Society has changed over the last decades, and now the positive enthusiasm for jazz and freedom wins out; looking at the painting today its artistry is evident, and the contemporary comment of the Academy’s President seems more apt, ‘a work of great promise executed with a considerable degree of excellence.’

Warmed by the sun, blown by the wind I sat Upon the hill top looking at the Sound. - One Sunday at Iona - F.C.B. Cadell, 1913

Cadell’s distinctive artistic talents were recognised at an early age, most notably by the artist Arthur Melville, who upon observing the younger artist’s drawings, stated that he appeared ‘to know instinctively what most people had to go to art school to learn’. At the age of sixteen Cadell travelled to Paris, where he studied at the Academie Julien. Living and training in Paris exposed the precocious young artist to the dynamic, avant-garde movements and developments in modern art that were occurring in the city at that time. As was to be expected, the time spent in Paris had a considerable influence on the young artist, and signs of this resonate throughout his career. Despite exploring and absorbing elements from these current trends and movements occurring in the vibrant, bustling streets and studios of Paris, Cadell developed a distinctively individual approach, reflecting his own character and interests. A man interested in all aspects of taste, elegance and style, he brought a sense of this to all his artworks.

The isle of Iona, off the west coast of Scotland, became an inexhaustible source of artistic inspiration, as well as a place of solace, peace and comfort for the artist. Cadell returned every summer from around 1912 to 1933, and encouraged fellow Scottish Colourist, S.J. Peploe to join him, evidence of his deep and longstanding infatuation with the stunning light and landscape of this special, spiritual place. The offered painting Iona: Ben More, is not only a beautiful example of his depictions of this ‘painter’s paradise,’ but has an important provenance, coming from the impressive collection of G.W. Service’s, one of Cadell’s earliest and longest standing patrons. Most likely to have been painted from Cows Rock, the piece depicts the distinctive rocky shore, white sands, and clear shallow turquoise waters that so captivated the artist. The painting reflects the artist’s talent of capturing the beauty of the island, and ability to impeccably transfer its jewel tones, wonderful light and distinct texture onto the canvas, instantly transporting the viewer to the peace and tranquillity of this sun-drenched scene.

Ida Rubinstein was one of the stars of Sergei Diaghilev’s famous Ballets Russes; an itinerant troupe of avant-garde dancers and performers who took Paris by storm in the first two decades of the 20th century. Many art historians now attribute much of the revolutionary cultural activity of the period to the impact of the ballet on artistic circles. From the risqué dances, extraordinary set and costume design, and boundary pushing compositions and choreography, the ballet set the abandoned, progressive tone of the day. The list of their collaborators is startling; from Stravinsky and Dubussy, to Picasso, Kandinsky, Matisse and even Coco Chanel. Rubinstein was one of the spellbinding leads of the Ballet Russes. A Russian, born into a hugely wealthy aristocratic family in St Petersburgh, she demonstrated a passion for performance and dance from a young age. Though dance did not come entirely naturally, the determined Rubinstein compensated for this with a magnetic stage presence and was high spirited enough to pursue her ambitions in the face of family disapproval. Convincing her parents to let her go to Paris under the pretence of furthering her education, Rubinstein took to the stage as an actress, but was committed to an asylum by her conservative brother in law; aghast at her perceived departure from social proprietary. Released by her concerned family, the tenacious Rubinstein married her first-cousin who, madly in love with her, allowed her to travel and pursue her career in the performing arts.

1909, the year this work was created, was the year the Ballet Russes opened in Paris, and the year Rubinstein danced the title role of Cléopâtre. The timing and subject matter of this work demonstrates yet again how integrally positioned J D Fergusson was in the creative circles of Paris at this time. Fergusson sketched for the Ballet at the height of its success, impacting his decision to found the Rhythmist movement, the main output of which was the production of an influential art periodical entitled ‘Rhythm’, which featured the work of influential modernist artists and writers. His fascination with movement, the female form and dance persisted within his work for the duration of his career, further cemented by his long-term romantic partnership with the avant-garde dancer Margaret Morris.

101 GEORGE LESLIE HUNTER (SCOTTISH 1877-1931) A STILL LIFE OF TULIPS AND FRUIT Signed, oil on canvas 46cm x 56cm (18in x 22in) Provenance: William McInnes Esq A gift from the above and thence by descent Exhibited: Glasgow Art Gallery & Museum, George Leslie Hunter, no.241 Literature: Bill Smith & Jill Marriner, Hunter Revisited, 2012, pp.162,162, Ill.141 ‘At first glance Tulips appears to have a far freer feel but its simplicity belies the extent of manipulation employed by Hunter. The paint is thin and flat but he brings out the vitality of the flowers and beauty of the objects through his astute use of colour.’

£30,000-50,000

Hunter did not live to an old age; passing away suddenly at the age of fifty four. Fortunately for subsequent appreciators of his work, the friends and staunch supporters he made during his lifetime included influential members of the Scottish art establishment; most notably Professor T. J. Honeyman, a former doctor and collector turned dealer and curator. Clearly invested in their friend’s career and welfare, we are left with an unusually comprehensive record of his life and work, as told through the eyes of those who knew him, and his work, well. We are therefore able to understand exactly how and under what circumstances many of his artworks were executed, and enabled genuine insight into what Hunter was striving to achieve artistically during each period. The work offered here for sale is an excellent example of this unique level of understanding we are offered into the artist’s motivations. Tulips was painted in 1930, and is representative of a new chapter in his painting style at this time. We know that Hunter had been forced to return to Glasgow in 1929 having suffered a steep downturn in health while in the South of France. A recurring pattern in his life was to severely neglect his health whilst in the throes of artistic inspiration, or whilst suffering mentally in the aftermath of a disappointing exhibition or review. He had recovered well whilst under the care of his sister, though he was finding the reaction from the Glasgow Art Club towards his latest artistic developments depressing. Hunter was moving steadily towards a loosening of technique which involved a paring back of form and an increasingly vivid palette. For the last decade, he had progressed through a period of immensely complex formal arrangements and technical, patterned brushwork. This energetic, freer form was less a regression in skill, as some critics at the time perceived, but rather evidence of the fruition of a sophisticated fluidity in his handling; an organic development in style and virtuosity. There is an obvious pleasure and an absence

of struggle or labour in his works of this period. To his biographers, including Honeyman himself, this work was the best of his career; not least because Hunter quickly began to develop an unshakable belief in the merits of this latest direction, a fact which is tangible to the viewer. What is also obvious in works like Tulips, is that they belong to the same cheerfully progressive world as Matisse. Indeed, we know that at this time Hunter was directly reinvigorated by the stunning example of Matisse’s work, La Nappe Rose, belonging to his friend, the collector McInnes. Hunter’s connection with this painting was a significant and deep one. He and McInnes had travelled to Paris together in 1925, where they had viewed a new exhibition of the artist’s work. Encouraged by an infectiously enthusiastic Hunter, McInnes purchased the work in question, which is now held in the Kelvingrove Art Gallery, Glasgow. As well as the clear inspiration the picture offered in terms of vitality of tone and simplicity of structure, it likely resonated with happy memories for Hunter, whose own artwork was receiving much critical praise in the mid-1920s. It must be remembered that Hunter enjoyed a window of time where he was recognised internationally as a modernist of developing importance. In a letter to a friend in 1924, for example, Hunter references a particularly interesting commendation from the prominent Parisian art dealer, Etienne Bignou: “Bignou told McNeill (a collector) he thought Matisse the only man in Paris the equal of Peploe and myself.” That Tulips entered McInnes art collection is not, therefore, a great surprise. It is gratifying that key dealers and collectors continued to support Hunter through these latter important developments in his career, though of course tragic that these strides were to be cut short just a year later when the artist sadly and suddenly passed away.

113 [§] ALISON WATT O.B.E., F.R.S.E., R.S.A. (SCOTTISH B.1965) SELF PORTRAIT Oil on board

Watt is today best known for her crisp, elegant explorations of swathes of fabric in a palette severely limited to a spectrum of whites, offwhites and greys. With many high profile exhibitions and commissions surrounding this latter direction of her career, it is easy to forget that her origin, and indeed the area in which she initially found fame, was exclusively based in figuration and portraiture.

25.5cm x 18cm (10in x 7in) Provenance: Cyril Gerber Fine Art, Glasgow

£4,000-6,000

Born in Greenock in 1965, Watt went on to study at the Glasgow School of Art, graduating in the late 1980s as part of a remarkable wave of neo-figurative painters; her peers including Stephen Conroy and Ken Currie. In 1987 Watt won the National Portrait Gallery’s annual award, which secured her the representation of some of the country’s leading galleries including Marlborough Fine Art in London. In 1997, a decade on, Watt began to introduce her now famous folds of fabric to the backdrops of her portraiture, an angle she continued to cultivate and evolve until she had moved away from the figure altogether. This has made her earlier figurative output all the more desirable, being, as it is, scarce to the open market. Though not strictly self-portraiture, Watt frequently drew upon her own appearance in her work, deliberately lending her figures a homogenised and androgynous look; the elongated oval heads distinguished by a long straight nose and full mouth with a pronounced cleft to the upper lip. The distinctive look of her figures is at once classical and entirely modern, and one can trace the influence of artists from Ingres in the painstaking finish of the works, to Freud in the restraint of the palette and the deliberate focus away from typical ideals of beauty.

BIDDING PROCEDURES AND THE BUYER (a) Bidders are required to register their particulars before bidding and to satisfy any security and credit references or arrangements before entering the auction room to view or bid; (b) High Value Lots and High Cumulative Value of Lots: If you wish to bid on any High Value Lot (a lot with a lower estimate of £30,000 or above) or if you are bidding on several lots with a total lower estimate value of £30,000 or above, you are invited to complete the High Value Lot pre-registration. After you have successfully registered as a bidder with Lyon & Turnbull, you should complete the High Value Lot pre-registration before the date of sale by contacting the Office Manager or on the date of sale at the registration area. Unless otherwise agreed by us, you will be permitted to bid for High Value Lots only if Lyon & Turnbull has confirmed your payment of deposit and your completion of the High Value Lot pre-registration before the sale.

If you are not successful in any bid and do not owe Lyon & Turnbull any debt, the deposit will be refunded to you by way of wire transfer or such other methods as determined by Lyon & Turnbull. Please make sure that you provide your bank details in the pre-registration form. The exchange rate provided to us by the bank on the date of exchange is final. We will arrange to refund the deposit to you within seven days after the date of sale, however we do not guarantee when you will receive the payment due to the variance in time for banks to process fund transfers. Upon successful pre-registration, you will be given a numbered High Value Lot paddle for identification purposes. The auctioneer will usually only accept bids made with the High Value Lot paddle or

by its High Value Lot registered bidder. This applies to saleroom, telephone and absentee bids. Lyon & Turnbull has the right to change the High Value Lot pre-registration procedures and requirements from time to time without notice. (c) The maker of the highest bid accepted by the Auctioneer conducting the sale shall be the Buyer and any dispute shall be settled at the Auctioneer’s absolute discretion. (d) Once made, no bid may be withdrawn. (e) Our right to bid on behalf of Sellers is expressly reserved up to the amount of any reserve. (f) The right to refuse any bid is also reserved. (g) 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 nor our employees nor 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.

VAT at the appropriate rate is charged on the Buyer’s Premium. No VAT is payable on the hammer price or premium for printed books or unframed maps bought at auction. Live online bidding may be subject to additional premiums depending on the service provider selected (The-Saleroom at 3%, Invaluable at 5%). This additional premium is subject to VAT at the appropriate rate as above. 6. VALUE ADDED TAX Value Added Tax is charged at the appropriate rate prevailing by law at the

date of sale and is payable by Buyers of relevant lots.

payment in full to us of the total amount due.

(1) Lots affixed with (†): Value Added Tax on the hammer price is imposed by law on all items affixed with a dagger (†). This imposition of VAT maybe because the Seller is registered for VAT within the European Union and is not operating under a Margin Scheme.

(2) You shall at your own risk and expense take away any lots that you have purchased and paid for not later than 7 working days following the day of the auction or upon the clearance of any cheque used for payment whichever is later. We can provide you with a list of shippers. However, we will not be responsible for the acts or omissions of carriers or packers whether or not recommended by us.

(2) Lots affixed with (*): A reduced rate of Value Added Tax on the hammer price of 5% is payable. This indicates that a lot has been imported from outwith the European Union. This reduced rate is applicable to Antique items. (3) Lots affixed with [Ω]: Standard rate of Value Added Tax on the hammer price and premium is payable. This applies to items that have been imported from outwith the European Union and do not fall within the reduced rate category outlined above. 7. DROIT de SUITE This symbol § indicates works which may be subject to the Droit de Suite or Artist’s Resale Right, which took effect in the United Kingdom on 14th February 2006. We are required to collect a royalty payment for all qualifying works of art. Under new legislation which came into effect on 1st January 2012 this applies to living artists and artists who have died in the last 70 years. This royalty will be charged to the Buyer on the hammer price and in addition to the Buyer’s premium. It will not apply to works where the hammer price is less than €1,000 (euros). The charge for works of art sold at and above €1,000 (euros) and below €50,000 (euros) is 4%. For items selling above €50,000 (euros), charges are calculated on a sliding scale. All royalty charges are paid to the Design and Artists Copyright Society (‘DACS’) and no handling costs or additional fees are retained by the auctioneer. Resale royalties are not subject to VAT. Please note that the royalty payment is calculated on the rate of exchange at the European Central Bank on the date of the sale. More information on Droit de Suite is available at www.dacs.org.uk. 8. PAYMENT (1) Within 7 days of a lot being sold you will: (a) Pay to us the total amount due in cash or by such other method as is agreed by us. We accept cash, bank transfer (details on request), debit cards and Visa or MasterCard credit cards. (b) Please note that we do not accept cash payments over £5,000. (2) Any payments by you to us may be applied by us towards any sums owing by you to us howsoever incurred and without agreement by you or your agent, whether express or implied. 9. TITLE AND COLLECTION OF PURCHASES (1) The ownership of any lots purchased shall not pass to you until you have made

(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 sale room and the potential storage charges for lots not collected by the appropriate time. (5) Export of goods: Buyers intending to export goods should ascertain (a) whether an export licence is required and (b) whether there is any specific prohibition on importing goods of that character, e.g. items that may contain prohibited materials such as ivory or rhino horn. It is the buyer’s sole responsibility to obtain any relevant export or import licence. The denial of any licence or any delay in obtaining licences shall neither justify the recession of any sale not any delay in making full payment for the lot. 10. 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 Sellers 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 contract for 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). (d) to remove, store and insure the lot in the case of storage, either at our premises or elsewhere and to recover from you all costs incurred in respect thereof; (e) to charge interest at a rate not exceeding 1.5% per month above the current base rate on all sums outstanding for more than 7 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 which become due to you towards the settlement of the total amount due by you and to exercise a lien over any of your property in our possession for any purpose until the debt due is satisfied. 11. DESCRIPTIONS AND CONDITION (1) Whilst 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 only accept liability for opinions given negligently or fraudulently. Subject to the foregoing neither we the auctioneer or our employees or agents accept liability for the correctness of such opinions and no warranties, whether relating to description, condition or quality of lots, express, implied or statutory, are given. Please note that photographs/images provided may not be fully representative of the condition of the lot and should not be relied upon as indicative of the overall condition of the lot. (2) Condition reports: Condition reports are provided on our website or upon request. The absence of a report does not imply that a lot is without imperfections. Large numbers of such requests are received shortly before each sale and department specialists and administration will endeavor to respond to all requests although we offer no guarantee. Any statement in relation to the lot is merely an expression of opinion of the Seller or Lyon & Turnbull and should not be relied upon as an inducement to bid on the lot. Lots are available for inspection prior to the sale and you are strongly advised to examine any lot in which you are interested prior to the sale. Our condition reports are not prepared by professional conservators, restorers or engineers. Our condition report does not form any contract between Lyon & Turnbull and the Buyer. The Condition Reports do not affect the Seller’s obligations in any way. (3) Estimates: Estimates are placed on each lot to help Buyers gauge the sums involved for the purchase of a particular lot. Estimates do not include the Buyer’s Premium or VAT. Estimates are a matter of opinion and prepared in advance.


Estimates may be subject to change and are for guidance only and should not be relied upon. (4) Catalogue Alterations: Lot descriptions and estimates are prepared in advance of the sale and may be subject to change. Any alterations will be announced on the catalogue alteration sheet, made available prior to the sale. It is the responsibility of the Buyer to make themselves aware to any alterations which may have occurred. (5) Electrical Goods: are sold as “works of art” only and if bought for use must be checked over for compliance with safety regulations by a qualified electrician first. Use of such goods is entirely at the risk of the Buyer and no warranties as to safety of the goods are given. (6) Upholstered items: are sold as “works of art” only and if bought for use must be checked over for compliance with safety regulations (items manufactured prior to 1950 are exempt from any regulations). Use of such goods is entirely at the risk of the Buyer and no warranties as to safety of the goods are given. Lyon & Turnbull provide no guarantee as to the originality of any wood/material contained within the item. (7) 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 appearing in the catalogue. These notices and terms will also form part of our terms and conditions of sales. 12. BOOKS, CLOCKS & WATCHES (1) Books-Collation: If on collation any NAMED item in the sale catalogue proves defective, in text or illustration the Buyer may reject the lot provided he returns it within 21 days of the sale stating the defect in writing. This, however, shall not apply in the case of unnamed items, periodicals, autographed letters, music M.M.S., maps, drawings NOR in respect of damage to bindings, stains, foxing, marginal worm holes or other defects not affecting the completeness of the text NOR in respect of Defects mentioned in the catalogue, or at the time of sale, NOR in respect of lots sold for less than £300. (2) Clocks & Watches: All lots are sold “as seen”, and the absence of any reference to the condition of a clock or watch does not imply the lot is in good condition and without defects, repairs or restorations. Most clocks and watches will have been repaired during their normal lifetime and may now incorporate additional/newer parts. Furthermore, Lyon & Turnbull makes no representation or warranty that any clock or watch is in working order. As clocks and watches often contain fine and complex mechanisms, Buyers should be aware that a general service, change of battery or further repair work, for which the Buyer is

solely responsible, may be necessary. Buyers should also be aware that Lyon & Turnbull cannot guarantee a watch will remain waterproof if the back is removed. Buyers should be aware that the importing watches such as Rolex, Frank Muller and Corum into the United States is highly restricted. These watches cannot be shipped to the USA and only imported personally. 13. CITES Please be aware that all lots marked with the symbol Y may be subject to CITES regulations when exporting these items outside the EU. These regulations may be found at http: //www.defra.gov.uk/ ahvla-en/imports-exports/cites Lyon & Turnbull accepts no liability for any lots which may be subject to CITES but have not be identified as such. 14. SALE BY PRIVATE TREATY (a) The same Conditions of Sale (Buyers) shall apply to sales by private treaty. (b) Private treaty sales made under these Conditions are deemed to be sales by auction and subject to our agreed charges for Sellers and Buyers. (c) Lyon & Turnbull undertakes to inform the Seller of any offers it receives in relation to an item prior to any Proposed Sale, excluding the normal method of commission bids. (d) For the purposes of a private treaty sale, if a lot is sold in any other currency than Sterling, the exchange rate is to be taken on the date of sale. 15. 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, safety and security arrangements. Accordingly, neither the Auctioneer nor our employees or agents shall incur liability for death or personal injury or similarly for the safety of the property of persons visiting prior to, during or after a sale. 16. GENERAL (a) We shall have the right at our discretion, to refuse admission to our premises or attendance at our auctions by any person. (b) Any notice to any Buyer, Seller, bidder or viewer may be given by email if not available then first class mail in which case it shall be deemed to have been received by the addressee 48 hours after posting. (c) Notices to Lyon & Turnbull should be in writing and addressed to the Managing Director at 33 Broughton Place, Edinburgh EH1 3RR, quoting the reference number specified at the beginning of the sale catalogue. (d) Should any provision of these Conditions of Sale be held unenforceable for any reason, the remaining provisions shall remain in full force and effect. (e) These Conditions of Sale are not assignable by either party without the

other’s prior written consent. No act, omission or delay by Lyon & Turnbull shall be deemed a waiver or release of any of its rights. (f) The contract between the parties may be varied by the parties by agreement and in writing. 17. AUTHENTICITY GUARANTEE Lyon & Turnbull guarantees that the authorship, period, or origin (collectively, “Authorship”) of each lot in this catalogue is as stated in the BOLD or CAPITALISED type heading in the catalogue description of the lot, as amended by oral or written salesroom notes or announcements. Lyon & Turnbull makes no warranties whatsoever, whether express or implied, with respect to any material in the catalogue other than that appearing in the Bold or Capitalised heading and subject to the exclusions below. In the event Lyon & Turnbull in its reasonable opinion deems that the conditions of the authenticity guarantee have been satisfied, it shall refund to the original purchaser of the lot the hammer price and applicable Buyer’s Premium paid for the lot by the original purchaser. This Guarantee does not apply if: (i) the catalogue description was in accordance with the opinion(s) of generally accepted scholar(s) and expert(s) at the date of the sale, or the catalogue description indicated that there was a conflict of such opinions; or (ii) the only method of establishing that the Authorship was not as described in the Bold or Capitalised heading at the date of the sale would have been by means or processes not then generally available or accepted; unreasonably expensive or impractical to use; or likely (in Lyon &Turnbull’s reasonable opinion) to have caused damage to the lot or likely to have caused loss of value to the lot; or (iii) there has been no material loss in value of the lot from its value had it been in accordance with its description in the Bold or Capitalised type heading. This Guarantee is provided for a period of one year from the date of the relevant auction, is solely for the benefit of the original purchaser of the lot at the auction and may not be transferred to any third party. To be able to claim under this Authenticity Guarantee, the original purchaser of the lot must: (i) notify Lyon & Turnbull in writing within one month of receiving any information that causes the original purchaser of record to dispute the accuracy of the Bold or Capitalised type heading, specifying the lot number, date of the auction at which it was purchased and the reasons for such dispute; and (ii) return the Lot to Lyon & Turnbull’s registered office in the same condition as at the date of sale to the original purchaser of record and be able to transfer good title to the Lot, free from

any third party claims arising after the date of such sale. Lyon & Turnbull has discretion to waive any of the above requirements. Lyon & Turnbull may require the original purchaser of the lot to obtain, at the original purchaser of lot’s cost, the reports of two independent and recognised experts in the field. The reports must be mutually acceptable to Lyon & Turnbull and the original purchaser of the lot. Lyon & Turnbull shall not be bound by any reports produced by the original purchaser of the lot, and reserves the right to seek additional expert advice at its own expense. It is specifically understood and agreed that the rescission of a sale and the refund of the original purchase price paid (the successful hammer price, plus the buyer’s premium) is exclusive and in lieu of any other remedy which might otherwise be available as a matter of law. Lyon & Turnbull and the Seller shall not be liable for any incidental or consequential damages incurred or claimed, including without limitation, loss of profits or interest. 18.
