The Asian Art Collection of Raymond A. and Babette Lewald Babin The diverse collection of Asian art from the Raymond and Babette (d. March 12, 2010) Babin Collection was initiated more than six decades ago when, in 1947, Raymond purchased a Chinese porcelain bottle vase. From that moment on, the acquisition of art and artifacts would develop into a shared passion for the couple, who soon developed/cultivated a wide and diverse interest in all categories of Asian fine and decorative arts. The Babins collected Chinese snuff bottles, porcelain ranging from the early Qing Dynasty to the Republican Period and Japanese pottery ranging from late Edo Imari and Arita to Meiji Satsuma and Sumida ware. In 1965, when the Delgado Museum of Art, now the New Orleans Museum of Art, held an auction of deaccessioned objects, the Babins were quick to identify the Asian lots and select pieces with that illustrious provenance to add to their own personal collection. In 1984, they were also active visitors to the Chinese Pavilion, acquiring contemporary Chinese crafts at the World’s Fair in New Orleans. The Babins continued to collect a wide variety of Asian art until Babette’s death in March this year.

The Asian Art Collection of S. Peter Horkowitz Sylvester Peter Horkowitz (d. April 3, 2010) was an honored World War II veteran and a respected chemist who was twice honored in Who’s Who in Chemistry and Engineering. His position as VicePresident of Gulf Oil Far East Operations from the early 1960s to the mid-1970s enabled him to live in Japan and Singapore where his passion and understanding of Asian art began and eventually thrived. While in Japan, Peter immersed himself in the local culture, even mastering Kyudo archery and becoming the first Westerner to achieve official ranking in the highly competitive martial art – a rare distinction for a foreigner. Peter began collecting Asian art in Japan where his interest was piqued by antique Chinese jades and snuff bottles. In Singapore, Peter’s attention expanded to include porcelain and pottery. In pursuit of his collecting passion, he was known to take week-long trips into the countryside, where he would meet with local art merchants. Peter developed long-term relationships with many of these vendors, returning to them year after year to acquire their best wares. Peter and his wife returned to the United States in 1974 and settled in New Orleans, where they both lived until their deaths. Peter died in April of this year; he was preceded by his wife Olga.

His cool, bright palette, combined with his extraordinary attention to texture and material, create works teeming with a sense of emotion and activity. As evident in the present painting, Ballesio is able to convey a sense of joyful exuberance with deft handling of the tonal qualities of light and shadow. 115 116.

$500/700 Note: Originating in Parisian decorative arts, papier-mâché appears as a decorative material in England in the mid-18th century. With a 1772 English patent for molding sheet paper, rather than pulp paper, Henry Clay paved the way for his 19th century successors such as Jennens and Bettridge to produce larger, very durable and luxurious papier-mâché furniture at modest production costs. The mother-of-pearl inlay, used for good effect in the chair here, changes with the light as the viewer crosses the room. Reference: Symonds, et. al. Victorian Furniture, pp. 194201.

130. William Merritt Post (American, 18561935), “Landscape with River”, oil on canvas, signed lower left, 24 in. x 28 in., framed. $3000/5000 Note: Known for the landscape paintings created near his summer home in Connecticut, William Merritt Post primarily utilized a Tonalist palette with rich greens and browns, having been influenced by the Barbizon school and his mentor, Hugh Bolton Jones. However, the impact of the newer Impressionist school can also be seen in his works, which generally present a study of light effects and a brighter palette than traditional Barbizon-style works. Post is notorious for his love of painting reflections on streams and rivers, as is evidenced in the present lot, where a glimpse of the green tree’s reflection can be seen on the glassy surface of the slowly moving brook.

133

Note: One of the most popular American artists of the 19th century, Thomas Waterman Wood began his career as a portraitist, painting not only wealthy white patrons, but also the free AfricanAmericans who worked for a living on the streets of Baltimore. He continued this work in Kentucky throughout the Civil War, after which he turned his attentions to genre painting in New York City. Although he changed the subjects of his paintings, distinct similarities in his technique can still be noted, as well as the common theme throughout his oeuvre of the dignity of man, regardless of age, wealth, or race. 134. William Mellor (British, 1851-1931), “River Landscape”, oil on canvas, signed lower left, 24 in. x 36 in., in a period carved, gessoed, and giltwood frame. $1500/2500

135.

He was a favorite student of Narcisse Diaz de la Pena (1807-1876) who admired the young man’s deft handling of the play between light and shadow; it was Diaz who initially encouraged Richet to concentrate on plein air painting. Richet employed a rich, vibrant color palette to create a sense of the airy atmosphere of the French countryside, particularly concentrating on the sky as is evidenced in the present lot. His colors were somewhat lighter than those of the older Barbizon painters, and often hint at the Impressionistic. Richet debuted at the Salon of 1869, receiving honorable mention at that exhibition in 1885, and medals in 1888 and 1901. He was a member of the Société des Artistes Français. Reference: Benezit.

Eventually attaining the prestigious position as Bank Director in his native Normandy, Legout-Gérard did not return to painting until after an 1890 visit to the Breton town of Concarneau. Enthralled by Brittany and encouraged by his artist friends, he visited the region numerous times on painting excursions. LegoutGérard soon abandoned his banking career to dedicate himself full-time to painting. In 1903 he became a permanent resident of Concarneau where he gained a reputation as an accomplished chronicler of Breton life. In 1900 Legout-Gérard was named the official painter of the French Marine Ministry. While he continued to create his popular landscapes and genre scenes, it was for his marine and port scenes that he was most acclaimed. Employing a cool palette and utilizing a quick, precise brushstroke, the artist was adept at capturing a specific moment. As evident in the present painting, he was able to create marinescapes filled with a sense of vibrancy and vitality. Legout-Gérard exhibited at the Paris Salon and the Societé National des Beaux-Arts Français. Reference: Benezit. Dictionnaire des Peintres, Librairie Grund, 1976, vol. VI p. 543.

A number of elements seen here relate to the Rosedown bed (now at the Dallas Museum of Art): the tracery embellishments on the tester, the use of narrowly spaced panels on the headboard, the octagonal posts and the inclusion of elaborately carved embellishments such as the finials on the footposts. Reference: Howe and Warren, The Gothic Style in America 1830-1870, p. 52., for an illustration and discussion of the Riddell “Rosedown” bed.

274. An Antique French Gilt Bronze Statuette of “Jeanne d’Arc à Cheval”, after Emmanuel Frémiet (French, 1824-1910), original maquette 1872-73, cast signature “E. Fremiet” on top surface of self-base, height 29 in., length 15 in., width 7 1/2 in., on a variegated marble base. $6000/8000 Note: In the wake of a papal appeal from the Bishops of Orléans, Frémiet conceived an over-life-size equestrian monument of Joan of Arc as an inspiring image of French heroism, patriotism, and national pride. He prepared a preliminary maquette between 1872 and 1873, now in the Musée d’Orsay. A site was selected in April 1873 in the Place des Pyramides where it was believed Joan had been wounded during her illfated attempt to drive the Burgundian-British faction from the Château du Louvre. Frémiet’s monument was inaugurated on 20 February 1874, but was immediately engulfed in storms of protest from Republicans, suspecting its Royalist overtones. While Parisians soon came to love the evocative naturalism of Frémiet’s splendid design, the sculptor himself resolved to remodel and to replace it. In response to a commission from the city of Nancy, he unveiled a second design in the Salon of 1889 which simplified the horse, while adding 9 inches to the rider’s height. The revised conception was accepted and installed at Nancy (1890), as well as cast for Philadelphia (1890); a clandestine cast was made, and secretly held in readiness. In 1899 the construction of the Métro provided a pretext for removal of the original monument to the foundry, where it was melted down. On 16 May 1899 Frémiet’s second version was reinstalled under the “camouflage” of new gilding. This version proved popular: it was cast at full size for Mirecourt, Lille, Castres, and St-Étienne in France, as well as for Melbourne (1906), Portland, Oregon (1924) and New Orleans (1958). This last version was a gift from the People of France to the city of New Orleans. Unfortunately, the city did not have the necessary funds to erect the sculpture. When French President Charles de Gaulle visited the city in 1960, and discovered the statue was in storage, a French/New Orleans fund-raising campaign was initiated. In 1972 the sculpture was erected at “Place de France” at the foot of Canal Street and was later gilded. During restructuring of the area in 1999 the statue was relocated to Decatur and St. Philip Sts. at the edge of the French Market. Meanwhile the first version of this admired monument is available for study only in reductions such as that offered here.

Another closely related armoire is illustrated in Poesch. Early Furniture of Louisiana 1750-1830. The flush panel doors and sides of this armoire are similar to those seen on numerous Louisiana sources, and exhibit the influence of French cabinetmaking transmitted through the Caribbean into North America.

The use of the trapezoidal “Egyptian” form panel on the case of this cabinet shows the influence of designs by English Regency designers. A cabinet attributed to Anthony Quervelle, also using an “Egyptian” trapezoidal panel as seen here, was sold in these rooms as lot 49, December 1, 2007, for $8,225. Reference: A similar pedestal cabinet from the Lee Anderson collection is illustrated in Robert Smith, “The Furniture of Anthony Quervelle, Part IV, Some Case Pieces”, The Magazine Antiques, page 189, pl. 11.

278. Andres Molinary (Gibraltar/New Orleans, 1847-1915), “Le Chemin des Chapitoulas”, oil on canvas, signed lower right, a typewritten label reading “Mrs. Boullemet, 2625 St. Charles Ave” en verso, 18 in. x 30 in., in a period frame. $25000/40000 Provenance: The Boullemet house, 2625 St. Charles Avenue, on the corner of Fourth Street in the Garden District of New Orleans, still stands today. The Boullemet name has died out, although related families, such as the Legendres, remain in the city. Neal Auction Company’s December 3, 2005 Louisiana Purchase Auction included an Andres Molinary and a William Henry Buck Louisiana landscape painting with the same Boullemet provenance, and all were probably collected in the late 19th century. Note: As a young man in his twenties, Andres Molinary left his native Gibraltar for New Orleans with the intention of visiting his uncle, who was a partner in an importing business. After several years of traveling throughout Mexico and Central America, Molinary settled permanently in the Crescent City in 1876. With the encouragement of his uncle, Molinary pursued a career as an artist and eventually opened an art studio. He soon earned portrait commissions and furthered his interest in landscape and genre painting. Always engaging and popular, Molinary’s studio became a gathering place for the coterie of local artists and writers. Despite the trials and tribulations of Reconstruction, the late nineteenth century brought a renewed

54

economic prosperity to the city. Talented artists and writers flourished in New Orleans during this time, which coincided with the arrival of the Woodward Brothers and the establishment of Newcomb College of Art. As an active member of the local art community, Molinary was instrumental in the founding of the Cup and Saucer Club, Southern Art Union and Artists’ Association of New Orleans. The unique landscape of Southern Louisiana, made up of swamps, bayous and interlacing waterways, fascinated the artist. As New Orleans began to expand its environs beyond the French Quarter and the surrounding areas near the Mississippi River, Molinary documented the growth of the city. Many of his landscape paintings depict a solitary cabin or horse and cart in the developing, but still clearly rural, communities of Gentilly and the North Shore. Bayou Tchoupitoulas (derived from the Indian tribe name Chapitoulas), located between the Mississippi River and Lake Pontchartrain, was comprised in the late nineteenth century of plantations and farms. Today it is the location of Metairie Ridge and Road in Old Metairie. Land closer to the lake inevitably took longer to develop since the swampy areas had to be carefully cleared and drained. In this beautifully rendered painting, Molinary focuses on a dredger working to make the canal in Bayou Tchoupitoulas more navigable; on the shore, an African-American fisherman with his skiff at the ready and pole in hand meets with his wife.

$1000/2000

280

Provenance: Descended in the family of the sitter, Hickman, KY. Note: This distinguished sitter is shown in a simple pose, belying the highly professional treatment by the very young artist. The high-quality canvas is marked by a full, legible stencil in the center of its reverse, representing the firm of W.E. Seebold, the South’s most prominent post-Civil War art dealer, over whose premises the artist had his studio. The frame, with its large pattern of stenciling, is so fine as to presume a New Orleans origin as well. The portrait itself, though simple, is grand and effective; one wishes the artist might have lived longer than his thirty-three years (during the latter half-dozen years of which he turned to Romantic landscape painting). 280. Alexander John Drysdale (American/ New Orleans, 1870-1934), “The Mystery of the Twilight in the Louisiana Swamp”, oil wash on board, pencil-signed and dated “1933” lower left, signed, titled, dated and inscribed “Life Member Southern National Academy of Design” en verso, 15 in. x 20 in., in a giltwood frame.

Note: An illustrator and the greatgrandnephew of Betsy Ross, Joseph Beale painted detailed scenes of the 19th century, including images of the Civil War; he had volunteered for service in order to make sketches for the magazine Leslie’s Weekly. His scenes of Civil War battles, such as the present lot, provide insight into the world of war in the 19th century from the point of view of a soldier on the field, making Beale an important chronicler of American history.

These experiences gave Greer the opportunity to study the Midwest landscape, as well as to learn to memorize the images he saw in order to re-use them in his paintings. After gaining popularity in 1941, Greer continued to paint, traveling between New York and Austin, Texas, until his death in 1998.

Provenance: Collection of Alice Barry, New Orleans and Pass Christian, MS.

Provenance: Naples Art Gallery, Naples, Florida. Note: Although greatly influenced by her Abstract Expressionist colleagues and mentors, Hans Hofmann and Mark Rothko, Kohlmeyer became concerned that her work was excessively influenced by Rothko’s style and technique. In fact, in 1963, because of her fears, “she makes a concious effort to sever her dependence on Rothko’s imagery by forcing herself to paint in complete opposition to Rothko’s soft misty-edged rectangles.” The result of Kohlmeyer’s transformation in style can be noted in the current lot, which, while retaining her abstract forms and light palette, includes circular elements and hard edges previously absent in her paintings. Contemporary Art collector Luba Glade ran The Glade Gallery in the 1960s and was influential in the establishment of the Contemporary Arts Center in New Orleans. Her passion for supporting the arts, and local contemporary artists in particular, was known throughout the New Orleans community and beyond until her death in November 2009. 344

Their sleekness, their fullness. Humble narcissus. Passionate zen. He found them to be worthy conspirators in the courting and development of conflicting emotions. He also found it was as easy to hurl beauty as anything else. Often they were symbolic of him; his processes. Modeled in geometric shade. Modified in a famous vase and inevitably turned in the realm of their own simplicity-the blossoming of the mystifying aspects of the pure.

Note: Grace Luse, a WPA sculptor from Cleveland, worked under Edris Eckhardt in 1938-39, helping to run her studio when Eckhardt was out of town and supervising the firing and glazing. Luse also created a series of family groups in ceramic during this time period. Although painting was not her typical medium, Luse’s handling of the paint in a flat and modernist manner befits the composition and subject matter she has chosen - that of Terminal Tower in Luse’s hometown of Cleveland.

They stayed in Sierra Leone until July 1885, “converting the heathen” on behalf of the United Brethren of Christ. “Remarkable gains were being made in the number of converts and in the increase of spiritual life at both Sherbro and Mendi missions. Sending the John Brown to Africa led to the appointment of Revs. J. M. Lesher and W. S. Sage and their wives to our mission, in October, 1883, and to the opening of several new mission stations, some of which became important, and was the beginning of a general ingathering of souls into our mission churches there.”

The King of Everything

Among the numerous felicities that have made New Orleans the least American of American cities, none surpass, in age or affection, the joys of Carnival. The glimmering processions of the masked gods and bearded kings of the New Orleans Carnival occupy a central position among the rites and glories of the great festival. And more: nothing better illustrates the worldly old city’s fabled decadence or extravagant sensibility. No one occupied more of those papier-mâché and diamond dust thrones than Charles Crawford. During the second quarter of the 20th century he reigned at Twelfth Night, Atlanteans, Momus, Mystic, Proteus and Comus. The year 1953 brought the final crown and scepter when he was chosen to be Rex. In those years 98

when he wore no crown, he had elaborate costumes and masks commissioned for the balls. Perhaps the most iconic of all those creations was the Jester costume he wore at an Atlanteans Ball; the Whitesell photograph shows him standing on one leg, almost dancing, and wearing the inscrutable grin of a wax mask. Many years later, Mr. Crawford donated his fabulous collection of costumes to the Louisiana State Museum where they remain reverentially conserved. And in the early 80s when I began to interview former kings and captains, every one of them asked if I had met Mr. Crawford - “Now there was a REAL Mardi Gras.”


579. [Mardi Gras], the Charles C. Crawford (1884-1977) album of Mardi Gras memorabilia, gilt-tooled brown leather, containing numerous photographs and newspaper clippings related to Rex, the Mistick Krewe of Comus, Twelfth Night Revelers, the Krewe of Proteus and the Mystic Club; notably featuring Crawford’s 1953 reign as Rex with his Queen, Adelaide Wisdom; other monarchs include Comus, 1946 with Queen Harriott Phelps, Comus, 1948; Proteus, 1952 with Queen Edwina Mae Saunders; Twelfth Night, 1937, with Queen Jessie Janvier; and Mystic, 1946, with Queen Flora Fenner; also included are photographs from numerous Kings’ Dinners as well as an artist proof of Pops Whitesell’s iconic image of Crawford as “Jester at Atlanteans”.

Neal Auction Company would like to thank Mardi Gras historian Henri Schindler and Wayne Phillips, Curator of Carnival Collections at Louisiana State Museum, for their kind assistance with Mardi Gras research. 576.

It is considered the most important collection of costumes at the Louisiana State Museum.

In such a spirit, the Mystic King omits his traditional pageantry from the past, but, as on former happy occasions, he honors his Queen and her noble retinue, and invites his guests to join with him in celebrating once again the joys of the Saturday before Shrove Tuesday”; together with a Mystic Club Ball invitation, March 2, 1935, printed by Shirokiya, Tokyo, Japan.

Examples of the foundry’s ornamental ironwork are seen throughout New Orleans. The design of these throne-like seats is heavily influenced by Renaissance Revival design, and was produced not only by Hinderer, but also by North American Ironwork/J.L. Mott of New York c. 1895. Interestingly, the patent stamp on the Hinderer chairs seen here predates the Mott production by more than a decade. Reference: Israel.

Louisa Rogers Ray McMillan, who was born in Sumter County, South Carolina, to Captain Peter and Mary Ray, married Thomas McMillan, an immigrant from Scotland. The couple resided in Camden, South Carolina, until 1834, when they moved to Mobile, Alabama. Both are buried in the Spring Hill Cemetery in Mobile.

The Adelle Badeaux Collection New Orleans experienced an exciting revitalization of its art scene in the 1980s and 1990s driven by a group of talented artists, gallery owners and art critics. The renovation and development of the Warehouse District in downtown New Orleans for the 1984 World’s Fair resulted in a group of forward thinking gallery owners relocating their galleries or establishing new ones on and around Julia Street. Monthly openings were coordinated with the nearby Contemporary Arts Center to provide an exhibition arena and to entice collectors. Art critics Eric Bookhardt of The Gambit and Roger Green of The Times Picayune publicized and weekly reviewed the various art exhibitions, performances and activities.

who opened the Gallery Jules Laforgue (named after a maternal ancestor French poet who died penniless) was a mentor to many of these young artists.

After retiring as a bookkeeper at a local tax service, Adelle Badeaux, initially an enthusiastic collector, focused her time and energy in creating art and participating in the art community. She faithfully attended openings, creating lasting friendships with many of the artists. Largely self-taught, Badeaux’s works, which frequently contain biting political and satirical points of view, were exhibited in group shows at the New Orleans Museum of Art, the Contemporary Arts Center and the Arts Council of New Orleans, as well as represented by Heriard-Ciminio Gallery.

Filled with nuance and detail, Douglas Bourgeois’ pieces are narrative in character, infused with fantasy, popular culture icons, religious imagery and underlying currents of social conscience. The mixed media piece “Billy Idol”, inscribed “For Adelle” is an iconic portrait of the 1980s rock star. Born in St. Amant in Ascension Parish, Bourgeois has a Southern sensibility of relishing details and drawing out the sometimes-ambiguous conclusions of his stories.

Badeaux was particularly attracted to a group of artists which Eric Bookhardt identified as the “Visionary Imagists;” they included Douglas Bourgeois, Jacqueline Bishop, Dona Lief, George Febres and Charles Blank. The CAC organized a critically acclaimed traveling exhibition of the New Orleans Visionary Imagists artists in 1990. As a group, they favor representational imagery but incorporate their own personal skewed sense of illusionism. The music, culture, natural environment and character of the South permeates their work. The always humorous and sardonic George Febres is represented in the Badeaux Collection by paintings, prints and drawings as well as a photograph by Tina Freeman entitled “George O’ Febres.” Febres

Jacqueline Bishop employs imagery of birds, as well as that of mammals and insects, to comment on the complex relationships between man and nature in modern society. Bishop uses intensely hued colors in the four miniature paintings of birds in their natural habitats represented here, all personally inscribed to Adelle. The collection of Bishop’s birdhouses, with animated sculptural flames along the roof line, are foreboding; a warning of the impending destruction of the natural world.

Martin Laborde’s, painting “The Tango of Adelle and Herb,” is a stylized view of Adelle and her husband caught up in the passionate and dramatic dance. Christopher Guarisco, who is considered a younger member of the Visionary Imaginists, infuses his densely painted surface with found objects in “After the First Death II” which is a commentary on the humanity’s carelessness towards the natural world. Other artists in the Adelle Badeaux collection, largely amassed in the 1980s, include such significant Southern artists and photographers as John T. Scott, Clyde Connell, Allison Stewart, Jesse Poimboeuf, Craig Berthold, Dixie Friend Gay, Stephanie Dinkins, Constance Cone and George Dureau.

The son of an artist, Alferez spent time with Francisco “Pancho” Villa during the Mexican Revolution (1910-1920), joining Villa’s army at the age of twelve. Alferez eventually moved to the US, working in Texas before making his way to Chicago to study art under the revered sculptor and educator Lorado Taft (1860-1936) at the prestigious Art Institute of Chicago. Taft had personally invited the young Alferez to Chicago, after seeing his work during a lecture tour of the South. Admired for his elegant, stylized figural sculptures, Alferez’s work may be found throughout his adoptive New Orleans, most especially in the Botanical Garden of City Park. Alferez, then involved with the Works Progress Administration (WPA) as its New Orleans Director, along with the architect Richard Koch and the landscape artist William Wierdorn, was instrumental in the designing, planning and eventual construction of the Park, which soon became one of the artistic highlights of the city.

$3000/5000 Provenance: Reproduced in the 802 book Preservation Hall Portraits: Paintings by Noel Rockmore, by Larry Borenstein and Bill Russell, Louisiana University Press, Baton Rouge, 1968. Note: In 1962, Larry Borenstein hired the talented artist Noel Rockmore to create a series of portraits of the musicians that played nightly at Preservation Hall in the French Quarter. Rockmore had recently moved from New York to New Orleans and had immersed himself in the local bohemian community of artists, writers and musicians. This portrait of Joe Watkins is part of the series of formally posed portraits of musicians. New Orleansborn drummer Joe Watkins joined George Lewis’ band which played at Manny’s Tavern and El Morocco Club on Bourbon Street; he later traveled with Lewis’ band to California. In the 1950s, Watkins divided him time between New Orleans and California. Eventually, Watkins returned to New Orleans permanently and played regularly at Preservation Hall with George Lewis and Punch Miller’s bands.

Note: Beloved for its affordable drinks and food, the lively Alpine Restaurant and Bar on Chartres Street was a favorite gathering place for artists, writers and numerous local characters who resided in the French Quarter during the 1970s and 1980s. The artist Noel Rockmore, a regular patron, painted this wonderful portrait of the waiter called “Alpine John.” With an apron tied at his waist, John’s deeply lined face with dark bags under his eyes alludes to hard living life.

837

Note: Verboeckhoven was inspired by the Dutch landscape masters whom he revered for their intense and unflinching attention to detail. He was born into an impoverished artistic family and, as a young man, supplemented his family’s income by working as a lithographer, a task that sharpened his eye for detail. He initially studied under his father before entering the Academy of Ghent. It was his initial training in anatomy while studying sculpture that helped him develop into such an accomplished and extraordinary painter of animals. Verboeckhoven was known for his preciseness of line, extreme attention to detail, rich palette, and deft handling of light and shadow. His fame went well beyond his native Belgium. He traveled extensively, exhibited widely, and was a member of the Academies of Belgium, Antwerp and St. Petersburg. Verboeckhoven was awarded the prestigious Order of Leopold in Belgium, and the Légion d’Honneur in France. References: Berko. Eugene Verboeckhoven. Editions Laconti. Brussels. 1981. Flippo.

They reveal evident influence of Baroque and NeoClassical models, while also displaying a firm sense of figural and iconographic independence. “Winter”, especially, with his vulnerable pose and affecting gestures, transmits a real sense of childish appeal. These are worthy three-dimensional parallels to the protagonists of J.M. Barrie, Kenneth Grahame, and A.A. Milne. 840

This led to a high-speed train chase, with the train’s conductor, William Allen Fuller, in pursuit. Although The General ran out of fuel just a few miles from Chattanooga and was recovered by the Confederacy, the men had managed to do some damage to the telegraph lines and railroad tracks and many were awarded medals of honor.

CONDITIONS OF SALE Placing a bid at auction constitutes buyer’s acceptance of and agreement to these Conditions of Sale. 1. WAIVER OF WARRANTY: All lots are sold “AS IS”. No statement regarding condition, kind, value, or quality of a lot, whether made orally at the auction or at any other time, or in writing in this catalogue or elsewhere, shall be construed to be an express or implied warranty, representation, or assumption of liability. Any such warranty is WAIVED. Regarding works of art, Neal Auction Company does not make any express or implied warranty as to authorship. No statement in the catalogue or elsewhere, orally or in writing, shall be construed as an express or implied warranty, representation or limitation of liability as to authorship. Any such warranty is WAIVED. Buyer agrees and acknowledges that: (a) buyer is not relying on Neal Auction Company’s skill or judgment in selecting to purchase any lot; (b) no oral or written statements in the catalogue of Neal Auction Company or elsewhere regarding condition, attribution, kind, quality, value or authorship are the cause of or reason behind buyer’s purchase of any lot; (c) buyer would have incurred the purchase of any lot regardless of any oral or written statements about condition, attribution, kind, quality, value, or authorship made in the catalogue or elsewhere; (d) Neal Auction Company did not know and could not have known that condition, attribution, kind, quality, expressed value, or authorship is the cause or reason why buyer decides to purchase any lot; (e) buyer’s purchase of any lot is not intended to gratify a nonpecuniary interest; and (f) Neal Auction Company did not know, nor should it have known, that any oral or written statement about a lot in the catalogue or elsewhere would cause a nonpecuniary loss to buyer. Notwithstanding the foregoing WAIVER OF WARRANTY, agreements and acknowledgements, Neal Auction Company may in its sole discretion, but shall not be obligated to, consider any reasonable request for rescission of a sale on the basis of authenticity of authorship of a work of art under the following terms and conditions only, all of which must be met: A. Neal Auction Company shall not grant rescission regarding lots identified by Neal Auction Company by the terms “attributed to,” “school of,” “manner of,” “after,” or “signature of.” B. Neal Auction Company shall not grant rescission regarding any lot unless the buyer notifies Neal Auction Company in writing within a reasonable time from the date of the auction, and returns the lot to Neal Auction Company in the same condition that the lot was in at the time of sale. C. Neal Auction Company shall not grant rescission regarding any lot unless the buyer presents to Neal Auction Company a written document signed by a recognized art expert acceptable to Neal Auction Company that the lot in question is a forgery. D. Neal Auction Company shall not grant rescission to any person (including but not limited to the original buyer’s heirs, legatees, assigns, transferees, or subsequent purchasers) other than the original buyer, and any rights of the original buyer are not transferrable or assignable. E. Neal Auction Company shall not grant rescission when: (i) there is a conflict of expert opinion as to the authorship; (ii) expert opinion supported authorship at the time of sale, although expert opinion may have changed after the date of sale; and (iii) scientific processes that were unavailable, expensive or impractical at the time of sale have revealed since the time of sale that the author or period Neal Auction Company believed to be accurate at the time of sale was inaccurate. F. In any dispute between Neal Auction Company and buyer regarding authorship of a work of art, it is stipulated that rescission of the sale and refund of the price paid shall be the buyer’s sole recourse or remedy, if any is available, and Neal Auction Company shall not be responsible or obligated for any damages (including compensatory, general, incidental, exemplary or special damages), non-pecuniary losses, costs, expenses, injury, mental anguish, lost profits, attorney’s fees, or any other monetary or injunctive relief. 2. The auctioneer shall have absolute discretion in determining the successful bidder. At the fall of the auctioneer’s hammer, title to the offered lot will pass to the bidder acknowledged by the auctioneer. The bidder thereupon assumes full risk and responsibility and will pay full purchase price for the said lot.

3. The auctioneer may decide that any original bid is not commensurate with the value of the article offered, or that any advance thereafter is not of sufficient amount, he may reject the same. 4. The auctioneer reserves the right to withdraw any item at any time before the sale of the item. 5. No merchandise will be released before the end of the auction. 6. If the buyer fails to comply with any of the conditions of sale, Neal Auction Company reserves the right to hold such defaulting buyer liable for the purchase price; to cancel the sale, retaining as liquidated damages any payment made by the buyer; resell the property without reserve at public auction or privately on seven days’ notice to the buyer or, take such other actions available by law as deemed necessary or appropriate. If Neal Auction Company resells the property, the original defaulting buyer shall be liable for the payment of any deficiency in the purchase price and all costs and expenses, including warehousing, the expenses of both sales, reasonable attorneys’ fees, commissions, incidental damages and all other charges due hereunder.
