2081 HERMANN HERZOG (American 1832-1932) Farallon Islands, Pacific Coast Oil on canvas 22 x 29 inches/ 55.8 x 73.7 centimeters Signed lower right “H. Herzog” Frame: 28.50 x 35.50 inches/ 72.4 x 90.2 centimeters PROVENANCE: Private Collection, Illinois

Estimate: $20,000 / 30,000

NOTE: Herzog, a centenarian, was born in Bremen, Germany and began his fine art training at the prestigious Dusseldorf Academy in 1849 under the auspices of Andreas Achenbach. Known for his highly detailed land and seascapes and ability to illuminate a scene, Herzog early in his career enjoyed patronage from some of Europe’s high nobility and ruling elite including Queen Victoria, the Grand Duke Alexander of Russian, the Countess of Flanders et al. A true devotee of nature the artist travelled extensively throughout Europe before moving permanently to the United States in the late 1860s settling in Philadelphia. From his first trip out West in 1873 to his last in 1905, Herzog made numerous journeys throughout the West and Northwest and going as far south as Mexico. The artist was in constant pursuit to find the most beautiful, inspiring and idyllic settings and he enjoyed great critical acclaim throughout his long life.

Herzog did not date any of his paintings but we can place Farralon Islands, Pacific Coast as sometime after 1873 when the artist made his first trip to the American West. Spanish explorer Sebastian Vizcaino first charted the Farallon’s in 1603 with their name literally translating into “rocks out of the sea”. In Herzog’s Farallon Islands, Pacific Coast the artist demonstrates his uncanny ability for not only choosing an interesting and dramatic subject but also for conveying strong atmospheric effects, subtle illumination and capturing the poignant moment of the day.

2082 WILLIAM HERBERT “BUCK” DUNTON (American 1878-1936) The Trail Boss (Settlers and Seeds - Civiliazation’s Forerunners) Oil on canvas 36 x 24 inches/ 91.5 x 61 centimeters Signed lower right “W. Herbert Dunton” Frame: 42 x 29.75 inches/ 106.6 x 75.6 centimeters PROVENANCE: D.M. Ferry & Co.; to Harris Moran, Modesto, California

Estimate: $200,000 / 300,000 LITERATURE: Julie Schimmel, The Art and Life of W. Herbert Dunton, 1878-1936, Austin: University of Texas Press and Stark Museum of Art, 1984. NOTE: William Herbert Dunton, best known as “Buck” amongst his friends, grew up as a spirited outdoorsman in Augusta, Maine eventually travelling extensively throughout the West and Mexico. Working as a ranch hand and cowboy, Dunton witnessed first hand the closing in of the Western frontier with barbed wire, sheep and cattle ranches and an increasing number of home-steaders. Prior to Dunton’s arrival in Taos, NM. in 1912, the artist had earned a well deserved reputation as one of the nation’s preeminent commercial illustrators contributing regularly to periodicals such as Collier’s, Harper’s, Scribner’s, Field & Stream, Cosmopolitan Magazine, McClure’s et al. as well as illustrating popular novels for authors such as Zane Grey, Eugene Thwing and Gregory Jackson. The Trail Boss (Settlers and Seeds, Civilization’s Forerunners) was acquired by the D. M. Ferry & Company for use as an advertisement illustration probably in 1910 (see inset). Julie Schimmel references a Trail Boss (p.222) as “unlocated” in her seminal text on the artist and goes on to discuss these frontal compositions by the artist “ . . . in which a cowboy or hunter rides toward the spectator, this formula providing Dunton with the challenge of composing foreshortened figures (p.75)”. Schimmel goes on to state that “Dunton was a master chronicler of the Old West known for his accuracy and authenticity of detail and prior to his move to Taos, his paintings are light filled landscapes placed within sunlit environments elevating and glorifying his iconic subjects of the cowboy life . . . (and) appears as if they were created outdoors and as if the landscape and light were based on immediate perception.”(pp. 71, 75). One of the artist’s greatest talents was his ability to lift the ordinary person and elevate him to mythic proportion as one of the celebrated icons of the Old West. As Dunton himself said “. . . the west has passed – more’s the pity. In another twenty-five years the old-time westerner will have gone too – gone with the buffalo and the antelope. I’m going to hand down to posterity a bit of unadulterated real thing, if it’s the last thing I do – I’m going to do it, muy pronto. (Robinson, F.Warner. “Dunton – Westerner.” American Magazine of Art 15 (October, 1924, p. 502).

Estimate: $20,000 / 30,000 LITERATURE: Peter H. Falk, Who Was Who in American Art: 1564-1975, Sound View Press, Madison, CT., 1999,Vol. II, p. 1252. NOTE: Gilbert Gaul, born Jersey City, NJ., 1855, attended Claverack Military Academy where he aspired to a naval career. Due to ill health he turned to fine art first studying with Lemuel Wilmarth at the National Academy of Design, NYC and then later with J. G. Brown at the Arts Student League, NYC. Gaul was awarded the prestigious Associate National Academician title in 1879 following full National Academician status in 1882. Gaul is primarily known as a historical illustrator & chronicler of the War Between the States and the Old West. His Holding the Line at All Hazards won a gold medal at the American Art Association in 1881, a Civil War depiction capturing the camaraderie and exhilaration of army life particularly sympathetic to the Southern cause. Another pitched battle scene titled Charging the Battery took a bronze medal at the Paris Universal Exposition in 1882. The artist made his first trip out West in 1876 with subsequent visits living with the Cheyenne and other Native American tribes. Between travels throughout the West, his farm in Tennessee and his NYC Tenth St. studio, the artist was commissioned as a special agent for the 1890 United States census where he was the last known artist to sketch the Sioux Chief, Sitting Bull. The artist is known for producing numerous illustrations for the periodicals Scribner’s and Century Magazine in addition to creating work for the Philadelphia publisher J.B. Lipincott. It is very likely that Unexpected Encounter is a heretofore unknown illustration by Gaul for one of the aforementioned journals. In Unexpected Encounter, Gaul places a lone rider ascending a snow filled crag coming upon three wolves. The horse, already aware of the wolves presence, has reared up on his hind legs as the lone rider attempts to regain control of his mount through the use of the crop. Rendered in dynamic brushwork and muted earth tones, the artist captures in high drama the mortal dangers of being a cowboy in the Old West.

Estimate: $60,000 / 90,000

At the turn of the 19th Century, Frederic Remington was a household name and the nation’s leading illustrator, painter and sculptor of the characters of the Old West. The artist is credited as one of the first pioneers in the use of the newly invented roll film box camera and it is known that he admired and studied the work of Edward Muyridge. Muybridge in 1877 published his seminal text Animal Locomotion where for the fist time animals and humans where captured in stop-action photography. As the giant photograph archive at the Frederic Remington Art Museum in Ogdensburg, NY attests, the artist loved being on both sides of the camera and literally thousands of photographs by Remington, of Remington or given to Remington bear witness to his use of and love for photography.

38

The Caravan was inspired by Remington’s trip to Algiers, Algeria in February & March of 1894 accompanied by his friend and colleague Poultney Bigelow. Poultney and Remington both played on the Yale football team and Poultney’s father, John Bigelow, was the co-owner of the New York Evening Post; a frequent solicitor of Remington’s illustrations for their periodical. Poultney was a lawyer, author and journalist who travelled extensively as well as the founder of Outing Magazine, another source for Remington’s illustrations. The painting is signed lower left “Frederic Remington from photograph” meaning it is very likely a photograph that Remington took himself. It is known that a group of eleven works of art associated with the RemingtonBigelow Algiers trip were illustrated in Harper’s Monthly in February of 1895. As the The Caravan is painted en grisaille the implication stands that it was created for purposes of book or periodical illustration. In the painting we witness an Englishman (Poultney Bigelow?) wearing his pith helmet accompanied by a woman in hat being drawn by yoked oxen across the sands and desert of Algeria. The second ox drawn cart carries what appears to be an African spotted leopard.

Estimate: $20,000 / 30,000 LITERATURE: Included with Straight, No Chaser (Crossing), 1999 is a four-page document from Gemini G.E.L., llc., Los Angeles, California signed by the artist describing their collaboration and the specific methods and techniques used in its’ creation. NOTE: Elizabeth Murray was born in Chicago, Illinois in 1940 and graduated from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago in 1962 earning a Master of Fine Arts from Mills College in 1964. Her first exhibition was in 1971 in the Whitney Museum of American Art Annual Exhibition showing an oil painting titled Children Meeting (in the permanent collection of the Whitney) evocative of human characteristics and pure feeling arrived at through an interaction of non-figurative shapes, color and line. She is particularly revered for her use of the shaped canvas.

In 2006 she was one of only four female artists to be honored with a widely praised retrospective at the Museum of Modern Art (MOMA, NYC). Her untimely death two years later the New York Times obituary wrote that Murray “reshaped Modernist abstraction in a high-spirited, cartoon-based, language of form whose subjects included domestic life, relationships and the nature of painting itself . . .”(Roberta Smith, “Elizabeth Murray, 66, Artist of Vivid Forms, Dies”, The New York Times, 13 August 2007). The Gemini, G.E.L. documents states that Crossing required 16 lithographic runs and 11 screen runs. The artist cut and assembled the elements and during and after the assembly stage, Murray hand colored and painted each piece. The work was then folded and manipulated into its final configuration making each piece an unique variant within the total edition of 33.

The Purchase of and Payment for Property The sale of a lot shall be to the highest bidder as determined by the auctioneer, in accord with these Conditions of Sale. Title to the lot shall pass with the fall of the Auctioneer’s hammer. Buyer shall pay the Purchase price, as defined above, and such other fees as may be due, in full, within seven (7) days of the auction sale. Sale is not final and property will not be released to Buyer until good funds for all amounts due, are received by MA. Payment may be made (i) in cash, (ii) by wire transfer (additional $15 fee), (iii) by money order or other guaranteed funds, or (iv) by personal check (when buyer’s credit is approved).

50

partial payment for any lot or lots we shall apply payments, in our discretion, to the lot or lots we select. The Buyer grants MA a security interest in the purchased Property, and we may retain as collateral any property purchased and any funds in our possession, to secure a Buyer’s obligations to us, if any. We retain the rights of a secured party under the California Commercial Code. All fees, taxes, premiums or other sums due and not paid pursuant to this paragraph shall bear interest at 1.5 % per month from the 8th day following the sale to the date paid in full. b.

MA may also, in its sole discretion, elect to place the Property in a public storage facility at the Buyer’s sole risk, responsibility and expense. c. Liability for delivery of property If, for any reason whatsoever, we are unable to deliver the purchased Property to the Buyer, MA shall be liable to the Buyer only for the Purchase price paid by the Buyer and in no event shall we be liable for incidental or consequential damages, including, but not limited to, business interruption or loss of profit. d.

Announcements We may, at the commencement of, or during the Auction, announce changes in or modifications to the Conditions of Sale or descriptions of Property. c. Absentee Bids For a Buyer’s convenience, absentee bids will be accepted, when properly executed and submitted in a timely manner. However, we neither accept any responsibility to an absentee bidder, nor any liability whatsoever for a failure to execute the absentee bid for any reason. In the event that identical multiple absentee bids are the highest bids received for the same lot then the earliest received of the competing absentee bids shall prevail at that bid amount. d. Auctioneer’s Discretion The Auctioneer has the absolute discretion to 1) pass a lot or withdraw it from sale at any time prior

to its actual sale; 2) refuse to recognize any bidder; 3) refuse to recognize any bid; 4) resolve any dispute between bidders or resolve any doubtful bid by deciding who is the successful bidder or nullifying the auction of the lot and reoffering it for sale. The Auctioneer’s decision is binding as to disputes arising at auction. If a dispute arises post sale, our records of the sale shall be conclusive. Both the Auctioneer and MA shall be without any liability whatsoever resulting from the exercise of the discretion referred to herein. e. Reserves All Property is offered for sale subject to a Reserve unless otherwise stated by us at time of sale. MA may protect the Reserve by an initial bid or continued bidding on behalf of the consignor. Any bids by MA staff after the Reserve is met shall be made only on behalf or registered bidders. Neither the consignor nor an agent or representative of the consignor is allowed to bid on their own property. DISCLAIMER OF WARRANTIES Except for warranty of title, neither we nor the Consignor make any warranties, guarantees or representation, express or implied, with respect to the Property, including, but not necessarily limited to, any implied warranty of “fitness for purpose” or “merchantability.” Any and all statements and descriptions in any catalogue or elsewhere by MA, relating to age, attribution, authenticity, size, genuineness, provenance, historical relevance or significance, physical condition, importance, quality, quantity, rarity, period, culture, source or origin, are presented as statements of qualified opinion only. MA’s disclaimer of liability covers information contained in catalogues, and all other printed material published by us, including condition reports. Buyers assume the responsibility to inspect the Property and make their own decision as to the nature, quality and value of the Property. Neither MA nor the Consignor make any warranty or representation with regard to the existence of or the transfer of intellectual property rights, except and to such extent as may, from time to time, be explicitly stated. No employee of MA is authorized to nor shall make any warranty or representation on MA’s behalf, except as stated in the catalog or in any written addendum. ESTIMATES OF VALUE All estimates of value as published in our Catalogues or elsewhere are statements of qualified opinion as to the range of the price a willing buyer might pay for the Property at auction. The actual price paid at auction or subsequently, may vary substantially from the estimates. MA shall not be liable for any such differential. BUYER’S DEFAULT If a Buyer fails to pay for purchased Property, or otherwise does not comply with these Conditions of Sale, the Buyer shall be in default. In addition to all remedies available in law, to MA and to the Consignor, the Buyer shall be liable for the entire Purchase price. Additionally, at our option, we may either cancel the sale and retain all payments made by Buyer as well as retain any and all Property of Buyer in our possession as security against payment of the sums in default, or we may re-offer the Property for sale, at auction or privately, without reserve. Buyer shall be liable to us and the


Consignor for the additional fees, commissions and costs on both sales (including handling, storage and court costs and attorney’s fees) resulting from the cancellation or resale of the Property and in the event of resale, any deficiency which may result. RESCISSION The sole and exclusive remedy, available only to the original buyer, is the limited right of rescission set forth herein. MA will cancel the sale of Property if the original buyer establishes to our satisfaction that there has been a breach of the Consignor’s warranty of title, or that the identification of Authorship* of the Property as set forth in Bold Type Heading is not substantially correct, based on a fair reading of the Catalogue (as may be amended by posted or announced changes.) IN ALL INSTANCES, YOU MUST GIVE WRITTEN NOTICE TO US WITHIN 30 DAYS OF THE SALE OF THE PROPERTY, SETTING FORTH THE BASIS FOR YOUR CLAIM AND, AT YOUR SOLE EXPENSE AND RISK, RETURN THE PROPERTY IN QUESTION TO MA WITHIN SEVEN (7) DAYS AFTER NOTICE IS GIVEN AND IN THE SAME CONDITION AS WHEN SOLD. Upon review of the claim and the property, if we are satisfied with the bases for your claim and the property is in the same condition it was in when sold, MA will rescind the sale and return to you the Purchase price, unless we have already remitted funds to the Consignor. In that event, and at MA’s sole discretion, MA shall either pay you as provided above, or shall pay you only that portion of the Purchase price retained by us (the Seller’s commission, the buyer’s premium and any sales taxes collected) and on your behalf make demand on the Consignor for the balance and upon receipt of the funds remit same to you. Should the Consignor refuse to return the funds to you or to MA, we shall disclose the Consignor’s identity and assign to you any and all rights MA may have against the Consignor. Any and all liability MA may have as agent for the Consignor shall thereupon terminate. BUYER EXPRESSLY UNDERSTANDS AND AGREES THAT MA SHALL HAVE NO OTHER LIABILITY TO THE BUYER EXCEPT FOR THE RETURN OF THE PURCHASE PRICE AND THAT IN NO EVENT SHALL MA BE LIABLE FOR ANY DAMAGES, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO INCIDENTAL, CONSEQUENTIAL OR COMPENSATORY DAMAGES OR LOSS OF PROFIT OR BUSINESS OPPORTUNITY. *Authorship refers to the maker or creator of the Property, and the period, social culture, and origin of the Property as stated in the Bold Type Heading for a given lot in our catalogue. It does not refer to the descriptions which may be contained in the information below the Bold Type Heading. MISCELLANEOUS a. Modification: No modification or amendment of the Conditions of Sale shall bind MA unless contained in a writing signed by MA, except as may be posted or published as noted above or verbally announced at time of sale. b. Severability: If, for any reason, any part of the Conditions of Sale is held to be invalid or unenforceable, the remaining portion shall be valid and enforceable. c. Successors and Assigns: The Conditions of Sale shall be binding on all the heirs and assigns of the Buyers and bidders and inure to the benefit of MA’s successors and assigns. d. Jurisdiction, Venue, Choice of Law: Dispute resolution

shall occur in Alameda County, California, USA. The provisions of the Conditions of Sale will be construed and disputes determined by application of California Law, without regard to conflicts of law. e. Notice, Service of Process: Buyers agree to accept all notices and service of process relating to dispute resolution at the address provided by Buyer on any registration forms required to be executed as a condition of bidding in our auction. f. Dispute Resolution: All disputes and claims arising out of or relating to events and actions covered herein, brought by or against us, shall be resolved by mediation or binding arbitration in accord with the procedures set forth below. This provision does not apply to claims brought by the Buyer directly against the Consignor, including, but not limited to any action brought pursuant to the rescission provisions noted above OPTIONAL PROVISIONS Shipping, insurance packaging and handling of purchased lots is at the risk and expense of the purchaser. As a service to the purchaser, MA may ship appropriate items solely via United Parcel Service, (UPS) Ground. MA will not ship by any other method including USPS, and property requiring freight shipment. MA will, in no event insure the property whether or not packaged and shipped by MA. MA shall not, under any circumstances, be liable for the loss, theft or damage to property, including, but not limited to selection of shipper, the acts or omissions of any shipper or the acts or omissions occurring in packing for shipment. It is the purchaser’s responsibility to obtain a shipping quote for any lot being offered, from an outside shipper, prior to the auction date. (As a courtesy, MA may provide quotes for items to be shipped via UPS). Post sale determination of shipping costs does not constitute grounds for cancellation of any purchase made at auction. Purchasers are advised that large and fragile items can be expensive and that MA will ship no property without first obtaining consent from the purchaser and only after packing and shipping costs have been disclosed by MA. When MA is to pack and ship, MA will provide to the bidder with a quote for cost of packing and handling and the UPS fee. The Purchaser is responsible for any insurance of the shipment. Shipment will not be made until both all sums due MA including the shipping and handling fees as quoted, and written confirmation is received that insurance has been waived or has been obtained by purchaser. Shipment may take up to 21 days after payment is received. MEDIATION AND ARBITRATION PROCEDURES (a) Within 30 days of written notice that there is a dispute, the parties or their representatives may meet at a time and place mutually agreed upon, to mediate their differences. If the parties agree, a mediator acceptable to the parties shall be selected. The mediator shall be an attorney, trained in mediation techniques and familiar with commercial law and the California Uniform Commercial Code (UCC). The mediator’s fees shall be shared equally and paid by all parties. At the mediation, all parties shall have actual authority to settle the dispute. Any statements made during, and all aspects of, the mediation process shall be kept confidential and shall not be admissible in any subsequent arbitration or judicial proceeding. Any resolution shall be confidential. (b) If the parties cannot agree to mediation, or if mediation does not resolve the dispute, or in any event no longer than 60 days after receipt of written notice referred to above, the parties shall

submit the dispute for binding arbitration before a single neutral arbitrator jointly selected, or absent agreement, selected from the panel of Arbitrators provided by the American Arbitration Association (AAA). If, within 15 days, the parties cannot agree on an arbitrator, then AAA shall select one (1) person as arbitrator in accord with AAA rules.
