I was in pre-production in New York on the movie Something Wild in the summer of 1986…

…the late Norma Moriceau, an old friend from days gone by and the costume designer of the Mad Max films, was making her maiden voyage as production designer. At a certain point, Norma started returning to the production office with amazing visual items from this store she had discovered in then-pre-cool soho, called Craft Caravan. Melanie Griffith’s character, Lulu, was an extremely afro-centric young woman in terms of her musical choices, so Norma decided to go allout on visualizing Lulu’s preoccupation with things African. AND… Norma kept telling me that I HAD TO go to Craft Caravan myself, check out all of the amazing things for sale there from around the world, and I REALLY HAD TO MEET the eye behind Craft Caravan, this guy named Ford Wheeler. I was so turned on by the stuff that Norma was finding at CC that I made a bee-line to Soho the following weekend. Just walking through the door of this place was like entering the grooviest museum on the planet. Not only were the items — African business signs, paintings, sculptures, religious elements, clothing, ornamentation of all sorts and more — of an extraordinarily high quality, but the way all this visual richness was displayed —dispersed around the room — was truly something else. All these separate things of great beauty and cool were arrayed in the most stimulating and agreeable visual ecology imaginable! And… there was Ford Wheeler, towering at his near 7-feet height, in the middle of this feast of things that he had personally shopped and brought back from Africa and beyond. Ford greeted me with an ironic smile on his gorgeous face, refusing to take a compliment on his exceptional great taste. We became friends, and even better, Ford became a true member of my little family, and to this day is one of the very closest friends of each of my offspring, as well as with Joanne and with me. And the better one got to know Ford, the more you discovered that this brilliant ability of his to both acquire great items and then design a living space or work space or country space with them in such a way that the presentation became a work of art unto itself.

4

It used to amaze me, how Ford would be in the store one day taking care of that business, then racing off to various countries on Africa’s West and Northern coasts for a week or two of exploration and acquisition, then back in the store. As time went by and our friendship deepened, I became increasingly high on a self-serving idea: what if Ford were to dump his retail side and bring his uniquely keen and cultured eye to Movies? Like, my movies? As fate would have it, Ford was starting to tire of the constant trips abroad. After many years of growing the business (and providing a model for the multitude of CC-imitators that have popped up over the years), co-running Craft Caravan was starting to become a drag. Ford was acquainted with various people in the film-making community who he had met through Craft Caravan and suddenly, Ford had stepped away from the comfort zone of his hugely successful enterprise and entered the world of making films look great, starting out as a set-dresser and moving steadily up to Production Designer, where he has helped create the look for a wildly impressive list of titles. Google him! He’s as fine a Production Designer as can be found today. Over the many years of closeness that I have enjoyed to the max with Ford, our individual collector-ness has led us on jaunts together to an endless array of flea markets, antique malls, country barns, etc clear across America, as well as Jamaica, Mexico and France. Usually, I just follow Ford around and claim the rejects that he finds, considers but doesn’t grab. So it is such a grand hoot then, to be teaming up now at Material Culture with Ford in this melding of our “collections”. For me it’s called “credibility by association” — it being such a great honor to have my precious “stuff” gathered with his!

—Jonathan Demme


I started collecting things as a child… …I was always interested in the many options within a genre. The variations and similarities often intrigued me. Of course as a child there was no real value to what I collected but, as collections, the insects, shells, rocks etc. that I assembled, took on added value for me. Later in my life the juxtaposition of various objects became a comment on American values and a celebration of the differences and similarities that define the world’s population. I found significance in many objects that seemed beautiful, worthwhile and honest to me. I was inspired by an elderly artist who collected bits of metallic paper and tinfoil that she found in the NYC streets. She displayed them in the stairwell to her rundown second floor loft on Broome St. I understood that the sum of the whole was more than the parts. I understood that collecting could be more that just acquiring. It could be more than a honing down to the most valuable or “best” examples but could also be a fully creative visual or intellectual experience.

As the years passed I lived with and within my collections. My circumstances improved and I was able to surround myself with objects that inspired my imagination and gratified my sense of esthetics. I found a place in my environment for objects of all values. Many had financial value but most importantly they had the value of pleasing, entertaining, enlightening and in many cases even defining me. It is now time for me to make room for new ideas and new collections. In the process of collecting, many intriguing and valuable objects have come into my possession. I hope that in offering some of my favorites in this auction that these objects will find their way into other collections and bring pleasure to an expanding audience. It is hard to let go of things that have been such a part of one’s life. On the other hand change is exciting and keeps life growing and moving forward with greater understanding and appreciation. I am happy to still be open to change and look forward to sharing the objects that have been part of my life for so many years.

Lot 220. Hector Hyppolite (Haitian/St. Marc, 1894-1948) “Bosou Toi Conne”, Oil Painting On Board

Hector Hyppolite “I retain a vivid memory of the first painting by Hector Hyppolite that I ever saw… It was hanging near the foot of the stairway leading up to the exhibition rooms of the Art Centre in Haiti. The time was December 1945… The picture which brought me to a halt as I was walking past pervaded me as though it were the first exhilarating breath of spring… it was only after this thrill of recognition had passed that the work came into focus…” — André Breton Source: Master Painters of Haiti: In the Collection of Siri Von Reis (published by Meadow Brook Art Gallery, 1984)


Lot 99. Georges Liautaud (Haitian/Croix-Des-Boquets, 1899-1992) “The Marassa Twins”, Forged Metal Sculpture

Georges Liautaud (b. Croix-des-Bouquets, 1899) Because he was originally a blacksmith, iron was a most familiar medium to Georges Liautaud. The artist came to DeWitt Peters’ attention in 1953 through his forged graveyard crosses so obviously resembling vèvè. His artistic career began when he delivered the first nonfunctional sculpture Peters asked him to do. Liautaud was the first artist connected with the Centre d’Art to work with metal and, through example, developed what became today a traditional art form in Haiti. For about 10 years, Liautaud preferred to forge his sculptures. Then he began to chisel forms out of flattened metal sheets. The result was not only a change of style but also a change of statement. Typical for his earlier pieces is a concentration on motion and direction in space; omnipresent shape, achieved by contour and mass, is the primary concern of his later work. Liautaud was a religious man, and most of his sculptures are devoted to the voodoo gods and spirits. La Sirene was his favorite. His relationship with the loas is so personal and intimate that they appear as friends rather than as mysterious and distant spirits. He loved, for example, to adorn La Sirene with earrings or nose rings or to render, with carefully incised lines, the eyelashes of his supernatural beings, giving them a touch of earthy vanity.

Lot 221. Denis Vergin (Haitian, 20th c.) “Ascension”, 1948, Oil Painting On Cardboard

Denis Vergin Over and over in Haitian paintings can be found the syncretic mixing of Catholic and Haitian iconography. On a winding Haitian mountain road black disciples watch a mulatto Christ and Angel. Some authorities think that Vergin may have been assisted in this painting by Castera Bazile, another early master. Denis Vergin, now deceased, was associated with the Centre d’Art in the 1940s. He is said to have been one of the key figures who left the Centre in 1950 with the breakaway group that formed the Foyer de Artes Plastiques.

Minnie Evans In the tradition of visionary artists, Minnie Evans (1892-1987) has made a unique contribution which transcends the categorizations of folk, outsider or self educated artist; because of the power and imagination of her art, she merits serious recognition. The uniqueness of Evans’ work evolved from her ability to manifest from her imagination and dreams, visions that are transformed to paper and canvas. Source: Minnie Evans - Artist Wellington B.

Micius Stéphane (Haitian/Bainet, 1912-1996) “Scaring Off Birds”, c. 1963, Oil Painting On Masonite Micius Stéphane was born in 1912 in Bainet where he lived and worked as a cobbler, and then as a painter. He joined the Centre d’Art in 1948 at the encouragement of DeWitt Peters, subsequently moving to Port-au-Prince in 1956. He is credited with having brought Edger Jean-Baptiste to the Centre d’Art. His son, Peters Stéphane, and his daughter, Edith Stéphane, are also painters, each working in distinctive styles clearly influenced by their highly successful father. Stéphane died in 1996. His work is included in the permanent collections of the Musée d’Art Haitian du Collège Saint Pierre in Port-au-Prince and the Milwaukee Museum of Art.

Lot 244. Préfète Duffaut (Haitian/Jacmel, 1923-2012) “Ceremonia Sisbi-Deux Aus”, Painting On Masonite

Préfète Duffaut Préfète Duffaut, born in 1923 in Jacmel, inherited his father’s trade of shipbuilding. He is the half brother of painter Pauleus Vital, with whom he was raised by their shared mother. Fond of drawing since childhood , it is said that Duffaut, while working on the Island of La Gonàve, had a vision of the Virgin Mary, who asked him to decorate the walls of the local Catholic Church, Notre Dame de Lourdes, with her image, which he did. Upon his return to Jacmel, William Krauss, an American journalist living there, saw some of his drawings and encouraged him to make some paintings on Masonite and send them to DeWitt Peters. Duffaut was invited to join the Centre d’Art in 1948. “The Streets of Jacmel” and “The Temptation of Christ” are his contribution to the Episcopal Cathedral of Sainte Trinité in Port-au-Prince. Winner of the First Prize at the 1966 Festival des Artes Negres in Dakar, Senegal, Duffaut’s work is included in the permanent collections of the Musée d’Art Haitien du Collège Saint Pierre in Port-au-Prince, the Davenport Museum of Art in Iowa, the Milwaukee Museum of Art, the Waterloo Museum of Art in Iowa, the Museum of Modern Art in New York, and the New Orleans Museum of Art.

André Pierre André Pierre, born around 1916 in Port-au-Prince, was a farmer and an active Vodou practitioner before being introduced to the Centre d’Art in the late 1940s by filmmaker Maya Deren, who had admired his temple wall paintings. Pierre eventually became a Vodou priest internationally noted (via filmed documentary appearances and frequent discourse with the many foreign visitors to his studio) for his eloquent spoken insights into the Vodou religion as well as his highly respected visualizations of the Vodun pantheon of deities in his paintings. In 1996, Pierre was the Gold Medal Winner of the 5th Venezuelan Bienniele. His work is included in the permanent collections of the Davenport Museum in Iowa, the Milwaukee Museum of Art, the Wadsworth Atheneum in Hartford, Connecticut, and Ramapo College in Mahwah, New Jersey.

Lot 191. Laura Pope Forester (American/Georgia, 1873-1953) Four Planes In A Golden Sky, Oil Painting On Masonite

Laura Pope Forester (1873 - 1953) Laura Pope Forester, from Pelham, Georgia, started off building concrete sculptures in her garden. Mrs. Pope Forester takes her place as the first feminist outsider artist of the 20th century. She was a woman who had children and a family, and on top of everything, decided to make art. Over time, she made hundreds of fixed tableaux concrete sculptures — homage to men and women from the past, such as the people who made sacrifices in WWI, the founders of the Red Cross, the maker of the first flag and the first woman to fly across the Atlantic. Her paintings have never been shown in exhibits, but she also painted large sky and mountain scapes in the style of the Hudson River School and then decorated the homemade frames with plaster. These haunting, darkened scenes suggest a passing from this life into another. After her death, the family held onto the property without making significant changes, and for some time it remained a local tourist attraction. However, in 1974, her only surviving son sold it to a mill owner, saying that the sculptures “had done passed their days of bein’ useful,” so they dismantled and destroyed most of the freestanding works.

Daniel Pressley Daniel Pressley was born in 1918, on a farm in Wasamasaw, SC. He began drawing at the age of six; he wanted to make something that would last forever. In 1943, he went to New York where he spent the remainder of his life. Working for many years pressing clothes in a Laundromat, and building iron radiators and plumbing fixtures. Diagnosed in 1962 with stomach cancer, he spent time in and out of the hospital, was no longer able to work, and took up painting and carving as a full time vocation. By the mid-1960’s, he began to show his work at the Greenwich Village Art Fair. And what he found in Greenwich Village: “the nearest thing to being in a free world that I have ever experienced as an American Negro.” There, he exhibited his paintings and woodcarvings for which he is celebrated. There, he also produced two remarkable journals: an illustrated autobiography and a sketchbook of ghetto life he called Sweet and Bitter Sweet. By late 1970 stomach cancer debilitated him such that he needed to enter St. Rose’s Home nursing home in Brooklyn, and in 1971 he died leaving all his remaining work to his daughters and sisters.

Lot 223. Peterson Laurent (Haitian/St. Marc, 1888-1958) “Three Fishes”, C. 1950-55, Oil Painting On Masonite

Peterson Laurent Active 1940 – 1958 All we know about Peterson Laurent is that he was apparently a railroad blacksmith and that he lived and died in St. Marc. His themes included scenes of Haitian country life, American battleships, still life, roosters and hens, fish, and vases filled with flowers. Some of Laurent’s themes appear to come from the realm of voodoo: the peculiar vases filled with flowers usually found on voodoo altars; the fish, which could be connected with Agoué, loa of the sea; and the roosters and hens, which could have something to do with the ritual of sacrifice. It is conspicuous that these three subjects are always depicted against a neutral background, as are their counterparts in temples. Possibly Laurent came to painting via the decoration of houmfor walls. Typical of Laurent’s style is a looseness of drawing and a quick, spontaneous brushstroke underlining directions and creating textures. His palette, composed primarily of warm, earthy tones, is proof of a line sense of color that enriches his paintings with many subtleties. Source: Haitian Art, by Ute Stebich (published by Harry N.

Originally employed in Jacmel, in the craft of fé blantye (the creation of funeral floral arrangements fashioned from tin), Byron first came to the Centre d’Art in the mid 1950s at the suggestion of Préfète Duffaut, where one of his paintings was immediately sold to Bishop Voegeli of the Episcopal Cathedral. He also practiced occasionally as a doktè fè, or leaf doctor (herbalist). His daughter Benita and his son Guy are also painters, working in the distinctive Byron style. His work is included in the permanent collections of the Musée d’Art Haitien du Collège Saint Pierre in Port-au-Prince, the Milwaukee Museum of Art, and the Waterloo Museum of Art in Iowa.

Lot 201. Victor Joseph Gatto (American, 1893-1965) Ship On Stormy Sea, Oil Painting On Canvas

Victor Joseph Gatto (1893–1965) was born in New York City, and he had served in the US Navy and boxed as a featherweight long before he turned his mind or hand to painting. In 1938, out of work due to an injury, he came across a sidewalk art show in Greenwich Village, and, seeing the prices that even amateur paintings commanded, decided to take it up. This decision luckily coincided with a swell of interest in the “naïve” style of art, and his work received interest from galleries, museums, and celebrities. Painters Elaine and Willem De Kooning, who lived in the apartment next door to Gatto and his widowed stepmother, were among the many artists who encouraged him to continue. Gatto painted using finely-haired brushes, continually layering pigment to achieve endless and exacting detail. Whether depicting a Biblical story, tropical beasts, or fantastical scenes, Gatto’s work is frequently full of incident, passion and the push and pull of life’s opposing forces. His paintings are in the permanent collections of the Museum of Modern Art, the Whitney Museum of American Art and the Museum of American Folk Art, all in New York, and the Smithsonian American Art Museum in Washington DC, amongst many others.

He was an articulate, disciplined, and wise man, a poet at heart. His paintings reflect his personality. He produced pictures of infinite variety. Among his favorite topics were still life, carnivals, and scenes from nature. Before starting a painting, Philippe-Auguste finished a precisae pencil drawing on transparent paper. He later transferred the drawing onto prepared Masonite. The artist was proud of this special technique, which let him reuse successful designs in new combinations and served as a record of all his work.

Edger Jean-Baptiste Edger Jean-Baptiste was born January 31, 1917, in Bainet. Originally a cobbler and a tailor, Jean-Baptiste and his wife raised five daughters and two sons. Before joining the Centre d’Art in 1954 with the help of Micius Stephane, he occasionally painted village scenes and characters on the surface of sun-bleached rocks chosen from the extraordinary Bay of Bainet shoreline, the rocks themselves worn to an incredible smoothness by the endless tidal movement of the surf. Known by his devotees as the “Master of Twilight” for his frequent exploration of the effects of the shifting sun on the color of sky, clouds, and landscape, Jean-Baptiste was forced to stop painting in the late 1980s due to the onset of glaucoma and his subsequent loss of vision. Edger Jean-Baptiste’s work is included in the permanent collections of the Musée d’Art Haitien du Collège Saint Pierre in Port-au-Prince, and Yale University Art Gallery in New Haven, Connecticut.

Lot 117. Sénéque Obin (Haitian/Cap-Haïtien, 1893-1977) “La Reine Et Le Roi D’haiti”, Oil Painting On Board

Sénèque Obin (Cap-Haitien, 1893 – 1977) Sénèque Obin was the younger brother of Philomé Obin, who interested and guided him in the art of painting. Since he was taught by his brother, Sénèque’s style is similar to Philomé’s. A Mason like his brother, the portrayal of Masonic ceremonies is an important part of his varied repertory. With the exception of a few historical scenes, he emphasized everyday life, concentrating on active scenes. In contrast to all the other members of the Obin family, Sénèque liked to use black. His palette consisted in general of warm, sensuous colors. Before he was able to earn a living from his art alone, Sénèque worked mainly as a coffee merchant. He joined the Centre d’Art in 1948.

Lot 366. Penius Leriche (Haitian/Jacmel, b. 1940) Man Cutting Vegetation, Painting On Masonite

Penius Leriche (b. Jacmel, 1940) After high school, Penius Leriche went to Port-au-Prince, and became connected with the Centre d’Art. Leriche’s oeuvre is small. The themes of his paintings are derived mainly from Haitian proverbs. Leriche is a friend of Guy Desir, and his early works show the influence of his friend’s delicate lines and subtle tonalities. Leriche’s palette has since become richer and more intense, emphasizing color rather than line. Source: Adapted from Haitian Art, by Ute Stebich (published by Harry N. Abrams, 1978)

He was introduced to the Centre d’Art in 1974 by Charlemagne Francois, his teacher, and Harrison Obin, grandson of Philomé Obin. Gédéus later founded the art association, known as Arc-en-Ciel (Rainbow) Gallery in his native city. Source: Island on Fire, by Edwidge Danticat and Jonathan Demme (published by Kaliko Press, 1997)

Lot 158. Eugène Jean (Haitian/Cap-Haïtien, b. 1950) Street Scene (Une Rue), Oil Painting On Cardboard

Eugéne Jean Born in Cap-Haïtien, in 1950, Eugène Jean joined the Centre d’Art in 1971 after studying with Philomé Obin for a year. He owes his preference for line over color and the accuracy of his technique to his teacher. But his choice of subject differs from Obin’s in spirit and statement. Jean usually depicts genre scenes with a touch of humor. His people are mostly average people in their normal surroundings, coming home from work, displaying hospitality, and so on. But Jean is a true man of the north, and the life he portrays is highly ordered. He is at his best when he uses a soft, delicate palette that expresses the cool charm of his scenes.

Lot 281. Odilon Pierre (Haitian/Port-Au-Prince, 1933-1988) Urban Scene With Buildings And People, Oil Painting On Canvas Odilon Pierre Odilon Pierre was born in 1933 in Port-auPrince. Pierre, who began carving wood sculpture at eighteen and eventually turned to painting, never married and had no children. He maintained a stall at the downtown Iron Market in Port-au-Prince from which he sold his own work as well as the work of other artists. The Iron Market population referred to Odilon Pierre as crazy, “not so much for not manning his stall, as for demanding higher than Iron Market standard prices for his work. Jonathan Demme, when he finally met the artist, recalls that Pierre explained that he could not sell his paintings for less than he thought they were worth, when each one was a part of him, the product of his own flesh and blood, a chunk of his soul.” Pierre created small canvases and his subjects included the countryside, landscapes and peasant women. Danticat points out that Pierre’s style of painting was different from other Haitian painters. “I was not looking for a style,” he commented. “I didn’t have a vision or a handle on any subject in particular.” Sources: Island on Fire, by Edwidge Danticat and Jonathan Demme (published by Kaliko Press, 1997) and Odilon Pierre: Atis d’Ayiti, by Jonathan Demme and Edwidge Danticat (published by Kaliko Press, 1997)

Lot 300. Joseph Jean-Laurent (Haitian/Croix-Des-Bouquets, 1893-1976) Country Home With Flowering Trees, Painting On Masonite

Joseph-Jean Laurent (Croix-des-Bouquets, 1893-1976) Joseph-Jean Laurent’s father was a comparatively wealthy farmer in Croix-des-Bouquets who was able to provide his son with a good basic education. After his education, the young man went to Port-au-Prince, where he established himself as a tailor. In his free time, he learned to play the accordion, the flute, and the clarinet. He was married three times. In 1961, Laurent moved back to his native village, where, inspired by his cousin Gabirel Leveque, he began to paint. Although the artist was active as a Seventh Day Adventist, certain of his paintings seem obviously connected with voodoo. Some of his scenes come from biblical sources, others are depictions of village life. These are usually framed by flowers and trees, thus creating poetic, lyrical images. Laurent did not prepare his pictures with underdrawings, but used brush and color as the only means of composition. His style is rather crude and childlike. Not many of his paintings are successful, but exceptions delight with their direct, naïve charm. Source: Island on Fire, by Edwidge Danticat and Jonathan Demme (published by Kaliko Press, 1997)

Lot 251. Wesner LaForest (Haitian, 1927-1965) House, Painting On Masonite

Wesner LaForest Wesner LaForest, born in 1927, is said to have been a mask-maker before he came to the Centre d’Art in the early 1960s. He produced a small body of paintings before his reported sudden death during an epileptic seizure a year or so after his arrival. Some also say that the mysterious LaForest simply vanished one day, never to be heard from again. Whatever his fate, his paintings apparently languished in the Centre d’Art basement until they were discovered there by Kurt Bachamann in 1965 and brought to light. His work is included in the permanent collections of the Wardsworth Atheneum in Hartford, Connecticut, and Ramapo College in Mahwah, New Jersey.

Serge Jolimeau (b. Croix-des-Bouquets, 1952) Serge Jolimeau has lived all his life in Croix-des-Bouquets, where he completed secondary school. He began his artistic career in 1972, working with Cerisier Louisjuste, another metal sculptor; he joined the Centre d’Art the same year. A shy, quiet young man, Jolimeau finds a way through his art to cope with haunting fantasy and his personal conflicts. Coming from a family of farmers, voodoo and folklore are part of his everyday experience. Much of his work is devoted to the deities, demons, and devils existing in his imagination and nourished by his background. Source: Haitian Art, by Ute Stebich (published by Harry N. Abrams, 1978)

TERMS AND CONDITIONS OF SALE The property offered and sold through New Material Culture, Inc.’s (hereinafter MC) public auctions (hereinafter the Property) shall be offered and sold pursuant to the terms and conditions set forth below (hereinafter the Agreement). This Agreement constitutes the complete statement of the terms and conditions pursuant to which all Property is offered for sale. By bidding at the auction,whether in person, by agent, in writing, by telephone, internet bid or any other means, the buyer of the Property (hereinafter the Buyer) agrees to be bound by this Agreement. PROPERTY SOLD AS IS. All Property is sold as is, where is, with all faults. Neither MC nor any consignor makes any guarantees, warranties or representations, expressed or implied with respect to the Property or the correctness of the catalogue or any other description of the Property. In no event shall MC or the consignor be responsible for the correctness, nor be deemed to have made any representation or warranty, of description, genuineness, authorship, attribution, provenance, period, culture, source, origin or condition of the Property. No statement made at the sale, or in the bill of sale, or invoice or elsewhere shall be deemed such a guarantee, warranty or representation. WITHDRAWAL OF PROPERTY. MC reserves the right to withdraw any Property at any time for any reason and to default any sale in the event of an error or dispute. COPYRIGHT AND REPRODUCTION RIGHTS. MC and its consignors make no warranty or representation, express or implied, that the Buyer will acquire any copyright or reproduction rights to any Property sold. MC expressly reserves the right to reproduce any image of the Property sold in the catalogue. The copyright in all images, illustrations and written material produced by or for MC relating to Property, including the contents of the catalogue, is, and shall remain at all times, the property of MC and shall not be used by the Buyer, nor by anyone else, without MCs prior written consent. EXAMINATION OF PROPERTY. All Property is available for examination prior to bidding. The Buyers bidding signifies that the Buyer has examined the Property as fully as desired or has chosen not to examine the Property. MC recommends that prospective bidders examine all items in which they have an interest prior to bidding. BIDDING. RESERVES . Some of the Property in the sale is offered subject to a reserve. The reserve is a confidential minimum price agreed upon by the consignor and MC below which the lot will not be sold. In most cases, the reserve will be set below the estimated range, but in no case will it exceed the low estimates listed. Bidding will begin at a price appropriate in the auctioneers discretion. The auctioneer always reserves the right to withdraw Property for any reason he deems appropriate. ORDER OF BIDS. Unless otherwise announced by the auctioneer, all bids are per lot as numbered in the catalogue. MC reserves the right to determine any and all matters regarding the order, precedence or appropriate increment of bids or the constitution of lots. ABSENTEE AND PHONE BIDDING. Absentee and phone bidding are permitted by prospective bidders who cannot be present at the auction. Please complete the Absentee Bid and/or Phone Reservation form. Absentee bids are executed competitively and confidentially. All reservations for phone bidding are held in the strictest confidence and must be received by 5 pm EST the day before the auction. No additional phone bids will be accepted at such time including additions when speaking with a staff person on the phone. Written absentee bids may be submitted on the Absentee Bid Form up to 30 lots before the item comes up for auction. Leaving an absentee or phone bid on a lot indicates your willingness to open the bidding at one half the printed estimate, and gives the auctioneer the authority to open the bidding at that level, or to open the bidding on a lot with a printed reserve at the reserve price. In the case of identical absentee bids, the bid received first will prevail. Bids left on internet portals are not executed until the item is offered in the live auction and the order in which they are received is not a factor. CUT BIDS. We do not accept cut bids, (bids less than the last interval) from the floor or from absentee bidders including phone and internet bidders. Thus, it is possible that a lot could go to another bidder for less than an absentee bid. For example, if the bids are progressing in $10 dollar increments and an absentee falls at a $5 increment we will not take the bid since it is less than the $10 increment. Following are general guidelines for bidding increments: $0-$100 by $10 increments $100-$500 by $25 increments $500-$1,000 by $50 increments $1,000 $3,000 by $100 increments $3,000-$5,000 by $250 increments $5,000-$10,000 by $500 increments $10,000-$30,000 by $1,000 increments $30,000-$50,000 by $2,500 increments $50,000-$100,000 by $5,000 increments $100,000-$200,000 by $10,000 increments Above $200,000 auctioneers discretion 134


HIGHEST BIDDER. The highest bidder as determined by the auctioneer shall be the Buyer. In the case of a disputed bid, the auctioneer shall have sole discretion in determining the Buyer and may also, at his or her election, withdraw the Property or reoffer the Property for sale. The auctioneer shall have sole discretion to refuse any bid, or refuse to acknowledge any bidder. At such time as the auctioneer has declared Property sold to a given Buyer, said Buyer thereupon assumes full risk and responsibility for the Property, agrees to sign any requested confirmation of purchase, and agrees to pay the full price, plus Buyers Premium, therefore or such part, upon such terms as MC may require. PAYMENT. Payment is due within 7 business days. Payment must be made by cash, approved check, or wire transfer. We also accept Visa, MasterCard, Discover and Paypal for invoices totaling under $5,000. Credit card transactions will not be accepted for international clients. MC reserves the right to require bank checks for purchases over $5,000. Personal checks will be acceptable only if credit has been established with MC or if a bank authorization has been received guaranteeing a personal check. MC reserves the right to hold Property purchased by personal check until the check has cleared the bank. Buyer agrees to pay MC a handling charge of $25.00 for any check dishonored by the drawee. MC reserves the right to not issue a Buyers number or to withhold merchandise if appropriate credit has not been established. Credit arrangements must be made by the Friday prior to the day of auction so bank statements can be verified. Any bidder that plans on spending in excess of $100,000 should make arrangements with the MC accounting department at least five (5) days in advance of the sale, as a deposit may be required to participate. All Property purchased must be paid for no later than 5 pm EST on the seventh business day following the sale. MC may impose, and the Buyer agrees to pay, a monthly interest charge of 1.5% of the purchase price of any Property not paid by the Buyer within thirty (30) days of the date of sale. MC reserves the right to rescind any sale of Property in the event payment is not received within seven (7) business days of the sale. BUYERS PREMIUM. A 25% buyer’s premium will be added to the hammer price on each lot sold on a house paddle, including telephone and absentee bidding; 27% will be added to lots purchased online. REMOVAL OF PROPERTY. All items must be picked up, or shipping arrangements made, within two weeks of the day of sale. Items not collected or shipped by the 15th day following the sale will incur storage fees at a rate of $5.00 per lot per day regardless of the size or value of the lot. Items not collected by the 30th day following the sale may be sold by MC or sent by MC to a public warehouse at the sole risk of, and charge to, the Buyer and MC may prohibit the Buyer from participating, directly or indirectly, as a bidder or purchaser in any future sale. No Property may be removed from MCs premises until the Buyer has paid in full the purchase price including Buyers premium. MC shall have no liability for any damage to Property left on its premises after the auction. A defaulting Buyer will be deemed to have granted and assigned to MC a continuing security interest of first priority in any Property or money of, or owing to such Buyer in MCs possession, and MC may retain and apply such Property or money as collateral security for the obligations due to MC. MC shall have all of the rights accorded a secured party under the Pennsylvania Uniform Commercial Code. PACKING AND SHIPPING. Buyer agrees that packing and shipping are done at the Buyer’s risk and that Buyer will pay in advance all packing expenses, materials, carrier fees and insurance charges. Shipping is the sole responsibility of the Buyer. Neither MC nor any of its consignors will have liability for any loss or damage to shipped items. Upon request, MC will provide a list of shippers who deliver to destinations within the United States and overseas. TAXES. All purchases are subject to applicable sales tax unless the Buyer possesses an applicable sales tax exemption number. Buyer is responsible for any and all tariffs, taxes and assessments that might be made on the Property. International Buyers are responsible for tariffs, taxes, or assessments of shipped items to the Buyers country. IMPORT/EXPORT RESTRICTIONS. Some property that is sold at auction can be subject to laws governing export from the United States, such as items that include material from some endangered species. Import restrictions from foreign countries are subject to these same governing laws. Granting of licensing for import or export of Property from local authorities is the sole responsibility of the Buyer. Denial or delay of licensing will not constitute cancellation or delay in payment for the total purchase price of said Property. BUYERS BREACH. If the Buyer breaches any of its obligations under this Agreement, including its obligation to pay in full the purchase price of all Property for which it is the highest successful bidder, MC may exercise all of its rights and remedies under the law including, without limitation, (a) canceling the sale and applying any payments made by the Buyer to the damages caused by the Buyers breach, and/or (b) offering at public auction, without reserve, any lot or item for which the Buyer has failed to pay in full the purchase price, holding the Buyer liable for any deficiency plus all costs of sale. GOVERNING LAW. These conditions of sale shall be governed by the laws of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania (excluding the laws applicable to conflicts or choice of law). The Buyer agrees that any suit for the enforcement of this Agreement may be brought, and any action against MC in connection with the transactions contemplated by this Agreement shall be brought, in the courts of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania or any federal court sitting therein. The Buyer consents to the nonexclusive jurisdiction of such courts and waives objections that it may now or hereafter have to the venue of any such suit. AMENDMENTS TO TERMS AND CONDITIONS. No claimed modification or amendment of this Agreement on the part of any party shall be deemed extant, enforceable or provable unless it is in writing that has been signed by the parties to this Agreement. No course of dealing and no delay or omission on the part of MC in exercising any right under this Agreement shall operate as a waiver of such right or any other right and waiver on any one or more occasions shall not be construed as a bar to or waiver of any right or remedy of MC on any future occasion. © 2017 Material Culture, All Rights Reserved 135
