Welcome to

DECEMBER


“This is the power of gathering: it inspires us, delightfully, to be more hopeful, more joyful, more thoughtful: in a word, more alive.” –Chef Alice Waters Cups overflowing with both wine and the warmth of conversation, the moment lingering as we savor those last bites and sips, our minds and our bodies full with contentment… Few things bring greater satisfaction than a delicious meal and a delightfully accompanied table, surrounded by some of our favorite people.I recently experienced such a dinner, the kind where every person is wrapped in the present, where delectable dishes are seasoned with infectious laughter, and where the company is as much a luxury as a coveted bottle of wine. As I checked my glass once again for a final drop, hoping for an excuse to stay longer, I found myself lost in time and anchored in connection. To gather and to connect is human, and to indulge in the moment and the things we enjoy alongside the people we love is the ultimate decadence. No matter how you celebrate, it’s the joy both felt and shared that makes the experience an exuberant one. As we head into a season of festive gatherings and spirited celebrations, our December Estates Auction, which includes over 800 lots, brings together an elegant selection of jewelry, antique furniture, fine art, decorative objects and more – both suitable for holiday-gifting and for hosting beautiful gatherings year-round. We’ve paired many of the items within this catalogue with an eye towards the holidays’ traditional, yet playful spirit. Much like this time of year invites conversation and connection, so too do I hope the stories behind each of the estates and collections move and inspire you. We are honored to present The Estate of Betty Turley Brooks, whose life was devoted to the arts, most notably having devoted her time and talents to the preservation of The Women’s Opera Guild Home in New Orleans’s Garden District. We are also delighted to offer Part 2 of The Shappley Collection, featuring antiques and fine art from the collection of Memphis physician Dr. Vance Shappley (NOAG had the privilege of offering Part 1 of the collection in our October Estates Auction); furniture

and fine art from a Houston home that reflects the granduer of English countryside estates; and an important collection of English furniture and decorative arts acquired from Apter-Fredericks, London, and sold for the benefit of the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston. Our December 3-4 Estates Auction begins at 10 a.m. each day. Exhibition opens Monday, November 21, and continues through Friday, December 2. The gallery is open Monday-Friday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. We invite you to join us for a special evening preview and holiday celebration on Thursday, December 1 from 5-7:00 p.m. We hope to see you there! I encourage you to join us at our gallery for in-person bidding, but you can also bid from the comfort of your own home by telephone or live online with LiveAuctioneers.com and Invaluable.com. You may also submit absentee bids in advance of the sale. As always, we stand ready to assist you. Whether it’s a request for a condition report, additional photos or guidance on how to bid, please don’t hesitate to contact us. As you explore this catalogue, I invite you to indulge your senses, relish the details, embrace the bold and lean into the playfulness. On behalf of all of us at NOAG, wishing you and yours a fabulous holiday season! See you at the auction,

Taylor Eichenwald Assistant Director

Brava! A Life Beautifully Lived

BROOKS

The Estate of Betty Turley Brooks

Grace and elegance. Grand adventures and great losses. Abundant generosity and boundless resilience. The life of Betty Turley Brooks was marked by beauty, boldness and bravery. Born in Lubbock, Texas, in 1929, the only child of her doting parents, Frank and Ida Turley, Betty was a natural fashionista. From an early age, she loved to dress up and would go on to model couture designs while in college. Standing tall at 5’8'' with high cheekbones and stunning black hair (which she credited to her Cherokee Indian heritage), she became a sought-after model – a promising modeling career that would be short-lived when Aubrey James Brooks, Jr. (Jim), a dashing oil pioneer, swept Betty off her feet. Following their nuptials in 1954, Betty and Jim married and moved to New Orleans, where they welcomed two children: Aubrey James Brooks, III (Jimmie) and Pamela Jeanne Brooks. The First Street home the family lovingly restored would become a hive for entertaining, parties and musical performances.

LOT 488 (RING); LOT 522 (NECKLACE); LOT 543 (JACKET)

It was in New Orleans that Betty would discover one of her life’s great loves: opera. Mesmerized by the genre’s spectacle of music, drama and vocal technique, Betty became a passionate opera devotee. Betty and Jim immersed themselves in the New Orleans Opera Association, with Betty serving as a founding member of The New Orleans Opera Women’s Guild. A perfectionist with a keen eye for beauty, Betty tirelessly and affectionately devoted her time and talents to the preservation of The Women’s Opera Guild Home, underwriting the renovation of its interior and insisting that her good friend and interior designer Joe Morrow spare no expense in making it the grandest space in the Garden District. Today, her portrait hangs in the building.


Betty and Jim traveled all over the globe together to enjoy opera – their glamorous and philanthropic life marked by their shared passion for the genre. In 1988, however, tragedy struck when Jim died of cancer just weeks after his diagnosis. Months later, their son, Jimmie, was killed in a car accident. Steadfast, Betty leaned on her friends, her community and her faith. She would eventually find love again with James Doss, to whom she was married for 20 years and with whom she shared homes in New Orleans, Bradenton, Fla., and Highlands, NC. Betty spread her love for the opera wherever she went, including bringing world-class performers to the annual Bel Canto Festival in Highlands, but her philanthropic and community involvement didn’t stop there. She generously and proudly served on the Board of Directors of The New Orleans Ballet Association, Volunteers of America and Ringling Museum in Sarasota, Fla. Through the arts, Betty made significant contributions to her beloved New Orleans community. She faithfully underwrote many operas, supported opera singers and brought Placido Domingo to The Crescent City after Hurricane Katrina in 2006, helping raise more than $700,000 for recovery efforts.

Audrey Ardoin & Betty Brooks

Betty passed away this August at the age of 93 in the arms of her devoted friend and housekeeper of 50 years, Audrey Ardoin. She is remembered as a beacon of generosity, grace and greatness by the many lifelong friends who cherished her. New Orleans Auction Galleries is honored to present fine jewelry, handbags, furniture, paintings and decorative objects from The Estate of Betty Turley Brooks.

In 2016, Betty lost her second husband, James, and two years later, her daughter, Jeanne. In her inspiring, tenacious style, Betty kept moving forward with elegance and grace.

Building Roots

HANKAMER

The Estate of Raymond & Camille Hankamer A descendant of a pioneering Texas family, founders of the town of Hankamer in Southeast Texas, Raymond Hankamer was a devoted Texan and a passionate builder of communities. He and his wife, Camille (née Ostrom) shared this devotion, spending their more than seven decades together investing in developments, preserving historical structures, tending to their gardens and curating their homes. Raymond and Camille fell in love at first sight as students at their beloved Baylor University, of which they remained generous supporters over the decades, most recently establishing the Hankamer Chair in Ophthalmology. The devoted couple wed after Raymond’s graduation in 1942 and immediately thereafter moved to Cambridge, Mass., where Raymond attended Radar School at Harvard College after proudly having served his country in WWII. In 1943, the couple moved to Houston to start their family, eventually welcoming three sons: Ray Jr., Ronnie and Larry. In 1950, the Hankamers bought one of the first houses in

Tanglewood – considered “the countryside” at the time – where they lived for 32 years and built many fond family memories. It was during this time that Camille fell in love with the idea of restoring historical Texas structures. The Hankamers’ most ambitious project was restoring the Inge-Stoneham mansion, a Texas plantation home circa 1858. Over a decade, the couple worked diligently to restore every detail of the home to its original form – ultimately earning the Ima Hogg award for Historical Preservation. Passionate about building and about building community, Raymond and Camille were early investors in Vail, Colorado, which Raymond and his partners at Southwest Inns Ltd., helped found in 1962, before building, owning and operating Vail Village Inn, the town’s first hotel. The charming

Alpine town would become a cherished spot for the Hankamers, who spent many summers, winters and family Christmases enjoying the mountainous outdoors.

Baptist University, Michael DeBakey Museum, River Oaks Country Club and River Oaks Baptist Church, of which Raymond was a founding member and deacon.

An avid outdoorsman and all-around athlete, Raymond relished skiing, fly-fishing for rainbow trout in the Colorado Rockies, duck- and deer-hunting and playing tennis. Camille, too, became an accomplished angler at Raymond’s side, often out-fishing him and his friends.

The Hanhamers were joyfully married for 71 years before Raymond’s death in April 2013, following a long and courageous battle with Parkinson’s disease and cancer. In May 2021, Camille passed away peacefully surrounded by several of her children, grandchildren and greatgrandchildren.

The well-rounded couple also enjoyed the symphony and the opera, in addition to passionately serving in a multitude of community, social and political organizations, including Second Baptist Church, The Oldham Little Church Foundation, Star of Hope Mission, the Republican Party, Blue Bird Circle, Vail Medical Center, Houston

Following the recent passing of Raymond and Camille’s son, Ronald "Ronnie" Hankamer, New Orleans Auction Galleries is honored to present The Estate of Raymond & Camille Hankamer, featuring items from their enchanting and storied Houston home.

Champions for Jacksonville’s Culture & Community

BAKER

The Estate of Ann McDonald Baker & Edward “Ted” L’Engle Baker North Carolina native Ann McDonald and lifetime Jacksonville resident Edward “Ted” L’Engle Baker laid roots in the Northeast Florida coastal community in 1957, following Ted’s service in the U.S. Marine Corps. For more than five decades, the couple was wholeheartedly devoted to the city where they created their home and established their family. Together, Ann and Ted’s civic engagement was a catalyst for growth and change in their beloved community, with their contributions making a significant impact on Jacksonville’s arts and culture, environment and business growth. Ann leveraged her passion for the arts, education and beautification to co-found the Jacksonville Arts Assembly (now known as the Jacksonville Cultural Council ), Greenscape of Jacksonville, Douglas Anderson School of

Arts and the Women’s Giving Alliance. She also led a variety of community-minded efforts and organizations; became the first woman to sit on the Community Foundation Board, where she served for more than 12 years; and was the recipient of the Eve Lifetime Achievement Award, the One Jax Circle of Honorees Award and the Girl Scout’s Women of Distinction Award. Likewise, Ted was a torchbearer for Jacksonville’s economic prosperity. During his half-century-long career in the construction materials and mining industries, he served in superior-level capacities at Shands & Baker, Florida Rock Industries and Patriot Transportation Holding. In 1984, he was named the Florida Trucking Association’s Man of the Year and was inducted into the Pit & Quarry Hall of Fame in 2022. Throughout the years, he lent his time and leadership to the boards of The Jacksonville Port Authority, Jacksonville Chamber of Commerce, Orange Bowl Committee, Florida Council of 100 and more. The couple was married for 54 years before Ann lost a courageous battle with brain cancer in 2011. Ted passed away earlier this year at the age of 87, leaving behind the couple’s four children and 10 grandchildren. New Orleans Auction Galleries is pleased to offer The Estate of Ann McDonald Baker and Edward “Ted” L’Engle Baker, which includes a charming collection of Chinese export porcelain as well as English and French examples, English furniture, decorative arts and fine art from their treasured waterfront home in Jacksonville.

A Country Estate Fit for Downton Abbey Fine Art, Furniture & More From

HOUSTON'S MANOR Own British

Majestic, luxurious and meticulously appointed, this sprawling estate, hailed “Houston’s own British manor” by PaperCity magazine, would indeed make Downton Abbey’s Crawley family feel right at home. From the glass-and-wrought-iron front doors and gold-gilded accents to the Fortuny silk-upholstered walls and expansive woodworking, every rich detail was impeccably considered. With more than 26,000 sq. ft. of interiors, the part country retreat, part city dwelling provided Ed Harris of Harris Sanders Interior plenty of space with which to play.

Built in 2003, the owners enlisted R.B. Ratcliff for the project, with the directive to echo the English estates of their birthplace. With lavish gardens, a circular motor court with a six-car garage, a sport court, a playground and a wine vault, the storied inspiration was certainly conveyed, all while adding the very best in comfortable and convenient modern luxuries. The property was purchased in October 2022 for $20 million, making it the largest single-family home sale in Houston MLS history. New Orleans Auction Galleries is pleased to offer paintings, fine furniture, mirrors and more from this stately Houston home.


“This is a home that was made for luxury, while also being a place for living. Fine details and every thoughtful consideration to the modern homeowner’s needs coexist happily here, creating a place that will make its new owner feel like a lord or a lady of the manor.” –HOLLY BERETTO CULTURE MAP HOUSTON

A Lifteime Passion for Collecting The

SHAPPLEY Collection

During his time in college, medical school and in the early days of his career, his childhood-sparked admiration for beautiful, storied objects only grew stronger. On the hunt for interesting pieces, he frequented antique shops and estate sales, acquiring the best pieces that he could afford at the time. Following active duty in the United States Air Force, Dr. Shappley returned to Memphis and entered private-practice urology. In 1994, he founded The Shappley Clinic, where he has practiced urology for more than 35 years. This rewarding medical career ultimately provided Dr. Shappley with the means to pursue his passions, especially his love for collecting.

From Ferraris to French furniture, collecting has been Dr. Vance Shappley’s lifelong passion. He has admired antiques and things of value for as long as he can remember and fondly remembers the first piece he fell in love with: his grandmother’s Zenith Trans-Oceanic Radio, which she would bring with her when visiting. Dr. Shappley became infatuated with it, wanting to own one himself one day. While his grandmother promised it to him at her death, he sadly never received it, but this disappointment actually led to his first collecting pursuit (he did, however, eventually find one in St. Louis, Mo., and he still cherishes it today). Growing up in Memphis, Tenn., Dr. Shappley and his brother worked seven days a week at their father’s modest neighborhood grocery store. The Shappley brothers knew that their ambitions were greater than what the small store could provide and were determined to find a path to greater opportunities. Dr. Shappley chose to pursue a career in medicine, attending the University of Memphis and receiving his M.D. from the University of Tennessee Health Sciences Center, where he also completed his internship, general surgery residency and urology residency.

LOT 724 (BRONZE); LOT 783 (PAINTING); LOT 645 (BOOKS); LOT 673 (WALKING STICKS)

From Palm Beach to New York, and London to New Orleans, Dr. Shappley never missed an opportunity to visit the best antique shops in any city in which he found himself. Whether he was attending a medical conference, visiting his son at college, or enjoying the Cavallino Classic, he took note of pieces to add to his collection. When Dr. Shappley built his home in Memphis’s Germantown area 32 years ago, he set out to create a house with the feel of a storied home with all of the conveniences of a modern one. Over the past several decades, he’d go on to beautifully furnish it with the very best items he could find, slowing down as his sons attended college. Despite his long English lineage, Dr. Shappley was attracted to the romanticism and warm, elegant qualities of French furniture and decorative arts, amassing exceptional pieces in his beautiful home.


LOT 783

With such an extensive collection, Dr. Shappley has decided to downsize as he and his wife begin their next chapter in a new home—or as he eloquently puts it, “I am simplifying my existence.” New Orleans Auction Galleries had the privilege of offering many pieces from Dr. Shappley’s collection in our October Estates Auction and are honored to have the opportunity to present additional pieces in this auction. The Shappley Collection, which includes fine French furniture, fine art, sculpture, an extensive selection of books and more, represents Dr. Shappley’s lifelong admiration for antiques, as well as his keen eye for the very best.

Frishmuth was born into an affluent Philadelphia family, which afforded her the opportunity to travel and study in Europe. An academically trained sculptor, she had - somewhat unusually as thorough and complete an education as any male sculptor of the time; she attended classes in Paris with Auguste Rodin, studied with Jean Antoine Injalbert at the Academie Colarossi, and worked with Cuno von Uechtritz-Steinkirch (who was under the patronage of Empress Augusta Victoria) at the Berlin Academy of Arts. Her first exhibition was a plaster bust at the Paris Salon of 1903. Upon her return to the U.S., she attended the Art Students League, studying with Gutzon Borglum and Hermon Atkins MacNeil, and took anatomy/dissection classes at the College of Physicians and Surgeons in New York. She began her sculptural career by producing small, decorative objects, which were well received and soon garnered her considerable attention. In 1912, she took part in an exhibition of women sculptors in New York; by the following year, she had her own studio on Sniffen Court, a warren of old renovated stables where numerous sculptors, including Malvina Hoffman (whose garden fountain “La Frileuse” is offered here as lot 694) were neighbors. While the commissions she received were initially diverse in subject, Frishmuth soon began to specialize in bronzes 80

of idealized female nudes. Her most successful works were those that depicted the female figure as active and powerful, with sinuous, flowing lines and smooth surfaces. While some contemporaneous viewers perceived a certain coyness to her figures, others saw them as unabashed modern bacchantes. Frishmuth was entranced with the lyrical movement of Classical and Modern dance and often engaged members of the Fokine Ballet Troupe; with their innate gracefulness of movement, ability to maintain difficult poses for lengthy periods of time, and athletic figures, the dancers were ideal models for the sculptor. The model for the work presented here was one of the younger students, Madeleine Park, who is whimsically posed with one foot delicately and mischievously extended to nudge a frog. A large-scale version of this work is located in the Sunken Garden of the Marjorie McNeely Conservatory at the Como Park Zoo and Conservatory, Saint Paul, Minnesota. Frishmuth was elected to the National Academy of Design, becoming a full Academician in 1929. Her papers are conserved at the Department of Special Collections, Syracuse University, Syracuse, New York.

George Philip & Son were a British publishing company of maps and atlases founded in Liverpool in 1834. By 1902 they had moved to London and began production of globes, soon becoming one of the primary globe makers in the world. They worked closely with the American firm of Rand McNally & Company who imported several of their globes, including the edition of 30-inch globes as represented here. In 1868 William Rand and Andrew McNally established the printing company that still bears their names. Initially producing tickets and timetables for the railroad, they soon expanded to directories and newspapers; their first map was published in 1872. Within several years virtually every schoolroom had a Rand McNally map, globe and/or atlas. The company still produces maps and atlases today, though they have expanded into software and technology. On the globe offered here, the labeling of Palestine with “Br. Mand.” in parentheses dates the globe to before 1948 and the labeling of Istanbul with “Constantinople” in parentheses dates it to after 1930.

Henry Boyle (1682-1764) had served as speaker of the Irish House of Commons for twenty-three years when he and England's incumbent viceroy in Ireland, the Duke of Dorset, reached an impasse over whether excess Irish revenue were to be under the control of Ireland or England. The Duke tried to remove Boyle as speaker, but Boyle refused to accept dismissal. The matter was not resolved for two years until the appointment in 1756 of a new viceroy and Boyle's agreement, in return for elevation to the peerage, to step down as speaker, in which role he was replaced by John Ponsonby (1713-1787). Any animosity between Boyle, now the Earl of Shannon, and his successor Ponsonby was settled by December 15th 1763, when the Earl's son Richard married Ponsonby's daughter Catharine. Almost exactly one year later, Robert inherited the Earldom and the family estates upon the death of his father. Educated at Trinity College, Dublin, Richard was a Privy Councilor when he became the second Earl and would later serve as Muster-

106

Master-General of the Irish military, and joint Vice-Treasurer of Ireland. He was a supporter of English rule and was rewarded for his loyalty with a Barony in the English peerage in 1786. He fell from favor during the Regency Crisis of 1788, when King George III's mental illness made him unable to officially open parliament, bringing the government to a standstill. The Earl challenged Prime Minister Pitt's attempts to establish a Regency, but he did not remain in exile for long, returning as a Privy Councilor and appointed First Lord of the Irish Treasury in 1793. His support of English rule would culminate in his support for the Act of Union in 1800, which created the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland. Richard and his wife Catharine had two children, Catherine (1768-1815), later Countess of Bannon, and Henry (1771-1842), who would succeed his father as the 3rd Earl of Shannon in 1807. The letters of Richard Boyle to his son Henry were published in 1982 as Lord Shannon’s Letters to his Son.

126

The impressive painting offered here was exhibited to much acclaim at the Paris Salon of 1867, lot 778. According to documents, including photographs, held at the Archives Nationale, Paris, it was acquired by the French government that same year. Several earlier, smaller preliminary studies with less complex compositions exist, including “La Tempete”, 1863, sold at DROUOT, Paris sale of 7 Avril 2000, lot 265 and later sold with the revised title of “Le Depart des Barques de Peche”, at Hotel Marcel Dassault, Paris sale of 14 Mars 2006, lot 154; the slightly larger “Sailors Saluting Christ at the Port of St. Valery”, 1863, sold at Sotheby’s London, sale of 4 October 2005, lot 42; and the “Matelots Sortant du Port de Saint-Valery” which is conserved by the Musee des Beaux-Arts de Caen. Variations aside, each of these works have the same sense of dramatic energy conveyed by the brisk, thick brushstrokes of the roiling waves and tumultuous clouds, intentionally limited but rich color palette, and the masterful interplay of shadow and light. One of the most accomplished maritime artists of his time, surprisingly little is known of Isabey’s personal life. He received his artistic training from his father, the miniaturist JeanBaptiste Isabey, who was himself a student of Jacques-Louis David and under the patronage of first the Court of Versailles and later under Napoleon Bonaparte. The younger Isabey, therefore, had opportunities rarely afforded to aspiring young artists; most notably he accompanied Charles Nodier and Alphonse de Cailleux on an excursion to Normandy which resulted in a series of etchings published in one of his father’s books. In 1824, at the age of 20, he was awarded the First Class medal at the Paris Salon, a feat he was to repeat in 1827 and 1855. He would continue to exhibit at the Salon consistently and with public and critical success until 1878. The recipient of numerous accolades and awards in his lifetime, Isabey was made a Chevalier of the Legion d’Honneur in 1832 and named an Officier in 1852.

“The Jersey Shore” by George Inness is an unusual depiction of a beach scene, neither sunny nor imbued with the usual merriment of a crowded seaside holiday as seen in the works of other 19th-century American and European artists such as Edward Potthast and Eugene Boudin. This is instead a meditative painting, an embodiment of Inness’s philosophical and spiritual beliefs, based on the writings of Emmanuel Swedenborg, the 18th-century Swedish mystic, philosopher and theologian who believed that natural and spiritual worlds are two distinct realms, although a correlation exists between the two and one can dwell in both depending on one’s spiritual feelings, qualities and influx of divine love. In this painting, the sky and earth merge and the human figures that huddle on the beach beneath a gloomy sky are insignificant. They gaze out to sea and we can easily imagine they are contemplating the vastness of the ocean. I, and many others, have experienced the beauty and fear of an approaching storm on the beach, when the clouds sweep over, plunging the once vibrant and bright blues and whites into murky greens, greys and muted siennas. The sea foams angrily, the horizon meets the sky, and for a moment, the two are one. The thoughts of mortality creep in and the answers to the ages-old human questions of what lies beyond our physical world are urgently needed. As soon as the clouds recede and shafts of sunlight dapple the sand and dance on the calmed surface of the once again blue sea, we are projected back to our careless selves, indulging in the welcome sunshine, and bathed in sounds of joyful chatter, giggles and splashing of the swimmers.

Here is a scene either at the onset or at the end of the storm; essentially this is irrelevant. It is a contemplative painting reflecting Inness’ admiration of the natural and spiritual worlds. There is a sense of loneliness to the human f igures, sitting distant from each other in the “landscape” devoid of shelter. This is a visionary work that could be compared to the vast color f ield canvases of the mid-20th-century artist Mark Rothko. Having recently visited the Rothko Chapel in Houston, I was at first struck by the lack of variation of color in what appeared to be uniformly dark, purplish imposing paintings lining the walls of the sanctuary. Suna Umari, a Rothko Chapel historian, explains it best: “They’re sort of a window to beyond,” she explains. “He said the bright colors sort of stop your vision at the canvas, where dark colors go beyond. And definitely you’re looking at the beyond. You’re looking at the inf inite.”(Meditation And Modern Art Meet In Rothko Chapel, Pat Dowel for NPR.) The same can be said of “The Jersey Shore”. The vast dark sky and the earthy beach, accented sparsely by whites and reds, can at f irst sight appear monochromatic and flat, yet the longer we look, the layers of various colors reveal themselves and we are lost in the “otherworldly” landscape Inness has created for our contemplation.

A talented and creative artist, Walter Inglis Anderson saw himself as voyager, and kept meticulous journals and logs of his experiences and travels. Anderson struggled with mental illness for most of his adult life. During his years of hospitalization, he read extensively, especially classic literary tales of voyages and journeys. After escaping from Mississippi State Hospital in Whitfield, Anderson moved in with his mother in Jackson. In February of 1940, he left his mother’s care and walked home to Ocean Springs, following the railroad tracks. In April of the next year, his wife Sissy moved with their children to Oldfields to live with her parents at their large plantation home. Anderson joined them and enjoyed the comforts of family life. His daughter Mary recalls that time where “he gave generously of himself to his children, producing an abundance of work.” While living at Oldfields from 1941 to 1946, he created ink, pencil and crayon drawings illustrating scenes of literary works including Homer, Coleridge, Shakespeare, Dante and Charles Darwin. By 1947, Anderson had returned to his cabin in Ocean Springs and focused primarily on painting watercolors of the landscape, animals and birds of the Mississippi gulf coast.

646

“Coney Island Audience, #1”, 1955 oil on masonite signed “Rockmore” and dated upper left, and titled and “Harry Salpeter Gallery Inc., New York” label en verso. Framed. 16” x 11”, framed 16-1/2” x 21-1/2” Provenance: Harry Salpeter Gallery Inc., New York. The Estate of Betty T. Brooks, New Orleans, Louisiana. $1,000-$1,500

Noel Rockmore was born into a family of artists in New York City. His father, Floyd Davis, was a celebrated illustrator, and his mother, Gladys Rockmore Davis, was an accomplished pastel artist. While living in the Hotel des Artists, the family socialized with cultural luminaries including Ernest Hemingway, George Gershwin and Leonard Bernstein. Noel’s natural creativity in both art and music became apparent as a child. In 1951, he settled down, married Elizabeth Hunter, developed a working relationship with the Harry Salpeter Gallery and earned critical acclaim for his art.

647

Despite his mother’s and gallery owner Harry Salpeter’s vocal protests, Noel contemplated changing his name from Davis to his mother’s maiden name of Rockmore. Noel reasoned that there were too many artists with the last name of Davis working in New York City. Evidently, Noel alternated signing his paintings as either Davis or Rockmore, until 1959 when he petitioned the court to legally change his name to Rockmore. The lively atmosphere of Coney Island, which attracted thousands of middle-class visitors to the amusements, rides and boardwalk during the summer months, intrigued the artist. In the painting “Coney Island Audience, #1”, Noel focused on the seated audience in front of a stage, watching a performance, and in the background a tent with “SHOW” printed on it and the railings of the boardwalk. While working on his Preservation Hall series in New Orleans, Rockmore painted similar scenes of audiences as they listened to the musicians. 647 detail

648 Knute Heldner (Swedish/Louisiana, 1877-1952) “Napoleon House, French Quarter” oil on canvas signed lower right, and Sotheby’s New York label en verso. Framed with artist and title plaque. 22-1/4” x 24-1/4”, framed 27-1/2” x 29-1/4” Provenance: Sotheby’s, New York, December 17, 1990, lot 286; Private collection, New Orleans, Louisiana. $3,000-$5,000

Since their initial visit in 1923, Knute Heldner and his wife Colette spent winter months in New Orleans and immersed themselves in the bohemian group of artists, writers and photographers who populated the French Quarter. The creative community was attracted to the French Quarter by the faded charm, historic architecture, cheap rent, and lively street life. By living and working in the French Quarter, Heldner was personally familiar with the history and daily activities of the residential neighborhood. The Napoleon House was built for New Orleans Mayor Nicholas Girod, who offered his home to Napoleon Bonaparte in 1821 as a place of refuge during his forced exile. In the painting “Napoleon House, New Orleans”, Heldner focused on both the historic building and animated street corner filled with residents and a mule-drawn wagon.

“The feel of that clay in my hand was entirely different from anything I had ever experienced before. Just the mere sensual part of it, the touch, seemed to fire me with something tremendously stimulating.” –JANET SCUDDER

Born into a Terre Haute, Indiana family that experienced severe personal and f inancial diff iculties shortly after her birth, Scudder had a diff icult childhood; her mother died when she was five, four of her six siblings died in childhood, and her father’s confectionary business failed. Through her resilience, determination and continued persistence in the face of adversity, she was to ultimately become one of the most successful women artists of the early to mid-20th century. She attended drawing classes at a local art school before entering the Cincinnati Art Academy, where she supported her studies by carving ornaments for furniture and mantels. She later attended the Art Institute of Chicago and worked with a local woodworker until the woodcarver’s union - unhappy a woman was working in their field - threatened to strike unless she was dismissed. This seeming set-back proved to be a pivotal moment in her career; her former instructor, Lorado Taft, was looking for studio assistants. Taft had successfully petitioned the director of the World’s Columbian Exposition to allow for women sculptors and Scudder, along with fellow artists such as Bessie Potter Vonnoh, began work on the Exposition’s structures. Her formidable skill soon earned her two personal commissions for the Illinois and Indiana buildings, for which she was awarded a Bronze medal. Impressed by Frederick MacMonnies submission, “Barge of State”, she determined to become his student. This was no easy task; MacMonnies was at the time one of the most acclaimed sculptors and, signif icantly, had never accepted a woman student. Unbothered and undeterred by his consistent rejection, Scudder showed up at his studio in Paris in 1894. Finally wearing him down, MacMonnies accepted her as an assistant; he was eventually to consider her one of his most accomplished and promising students. While in France, Scudder at tended the Ac ademie Colaro s si and organize d le s s ons for her fellow women ar tis t s at the Academie Vitti. Upon her return to the United States in 1896, despite her obvious skill, credentials and impressive letters of introduction f rom the most celebrated sculptors of the day, Scudder was rebuffed by the New York art community - most specif ically by Augustus Saint-Gaudens who refused to accept her as a studio assistant. Undeterred, she supported herself by producing bas-relief medallions, and doing ornamental architectural work. In 1898, she returned to

France and the following winter she and a f riend traveled across Italy. It was during excursions to the ruins of Pompeii that Scudder was inspired to reconsider the course of her career and her artistic approach. As she later stated, “I f illed my brain and my sketchbook to overflowing with all those gay pagan f igures and then and there decided never to do stupid, solemn, self-righteous sculpture - even if I had to die in a poorhouse; My work should please and amuse the world; My work was going to decorate spots, make people feel cheerful and gay - nothing more!” Thus began her series of what she referred to as her “water babies”; chubby, cheerful garden f igures and fountains with more than a hint of the antique. On her return to New York, she began a relentless campaign to convince the architect Stanford White, arguably the most influential American architect at the time, that a business association would be equally benef icial to them both. After years of correspondence - mostly on her part - he eventually conceded after seeing one of her fountains in the garden of one of his client’s. They were to collaborate closely on the park and garden designs until his untimely death. In 1914, Scudder created a sculpture of Pan for one of the grottos in John D. Rockefeller’s country estate Pocantico Hills which resulted in a full- page interview in the New York Times. She had now reached the apex of her career and found her work in high demand. Throughout her life, Scudder refused to allow society’s assumptions and opinions on women artists to impede her in any way, scoff ing quite vocally at any insinuation of any inherent physical or intellectual limitations. Her career trajectory as a sculptor, still an unusual path for a woman in the early decades of the 20th century, went hand in hand with the burgeoning suff rage movement. Scudder was a member of the New York State Woman Suffrage Association, on the art committee of the American Woman Suff rage Movement, and took part in numerous parades and demonstrations. In 1915, she created “Femina Victrix/Victory”, a sculpture modeled by her f riend Irene Castle which was initially intended for a National Suff rage Monument. In 1920, she was made an Academician of the National Academy of Design and in 1925 the French government named her a Chevalier of the Legion d’Honneur for her relief work during WWI.

"Carving became a harbor of safety into which I could steer my thoughts and sense of salvation by selfobliteration. It became the deciding factor in my decision to be a sculptor." –MALVINA CORNELL HOFFMAN

Hoffman was born and raised in New York City, the youngest of five children; her two brothers and two sisters were all at least a decade older than her. Her father was an English-born pianist, one-time accompanist to the singer Jenny Lind, and long serving soloist of the New York Philharmonic Orchestra, and her mother, Fidelia Lamson, was a pianist, from a socially prominent family, and one of the “400” of New York Society. As the beloved “baby” of the family, Hoffman was surrounded by love and support her entire childhood. The Hoffman family lived in a prosperous, yet slightly bohemian neighborhood, and artists and intellectuals were frequent visitors; the actress Lillian Russell was a neighbor, and the poet Marianne Moore was a childhood friend. Her prodigious talent evident at an early age, Hoffman’s father encouraged his youngest daughter to pursue her art. She attended the Chapin School for Girls, the Brearley School and, beginning at the age of 14, enrolled in art classes at the Art Students League and the Women’s School for Applied Design. She then studied panting with John White Alexander and sculpture with Herbert Adams and George Grey Barnard. In 1909, the Danish sculptor Gutzon Borglum was so impressed by a plaster cast she did of her father, he encouraged her to submit it to the National Academy of Design Exhibition in 1909, where it was accepted. When her father fell ill shortly after, she undertook a marble version and thus began her career. After her father’s death, Hoff man designed wallpaper until an unexpected inheritance afforded her the opportunity to travel to France. Determined to be accepted as a student by the sculptor Auguste Rodin, she showed up at the doorstep of his studio f ive times before he consented to even review her work - and then he did so only because she dropped the name of his most important patron, who also happened

to be a close Hoff man family f riend. As soon as he saw her portfolio, he immediately allowed her access to his studio. Hoff man studied with Rodin for over a year, eventually becoming one of his favorite assistants. Their relationship lasted until his death. While in Paris, Hoff man also studied with fellow American Janet Scudder, whose “Boy With Fish” is offered here as lot 693, working in her studio. She received honorable mention for one of her works in the Paris Salon of 1910. Upon her return to the United States, Hoff man honed her skill by studying anatomy at the Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgery, and the resultant models were utilized by medical schools and institutions for years. She also taught herself the painstaking technique of the lost bronze process and experimented with carving a wide variety of woods and stone. She set up a studio on Sniffen Court, where one of her neighbors was fellow sculptor Harriet Whitney Frishmuth, whose “Play Days” is offered her as lot 173. Admired as a portraitist, Hoff man traveled the world seeking inspiration and her oeuvre ranges f rom inspired f igures of the ballerina Anna Pavlova, her impressive series “The Races of Man” commissioned by the Marshall Field Museum, to her whimsical garden sculptures, of which the fountain offered here is a delightful example. She was a member of the National Institute of Arts and Letters, a Fellow of the National Sculpture Society, named to the National Academy of Design in 1925 and made an Academician in 1931, and named Chevalier of the Legion d’Honneur in 1951 by the French government.

2. Before the Auction (a). ALL SALES ARE “AS IS, WHERE IS” WITH NO EXPRESS OR IMPLIED WARRANTIES WHATSOEVER. (i) NEITHER NOAG NOR THE SELLER PROVIDES ANY GUARANTEE OR WARRANTY AS TO THE NATURE, DESCRIPTION, GENUINENESS, PROVENANCE, IMPORTANCE, OR CONDITION OF THE LOT. All Sales and Auctions are without any representation or warranty of any kind by NOAG or the Seller. Bidders and Buyers are responsible for satisfying themselves concerning the condition of the Lots and the matters referred to in the catalogue entry, the Condition Report, or in any other statement or writing provided. All Sales are final and are “AS IS WHERE IS.” (ii) No warranty of redhibition. ANY WARANTY AGAINST REDHIBITORY DEFECTS IS WAIVED AND EXCLUDED.

In addition, NOAG and Seller provide no warranties, guarantees, or representations as to whether a Lot is fit for its ordinary use, fit for Buyer’s intended use or for Buyer’s particular purpose. (iii) No warranty against eviction. ANY WARRANTY AGAINST EVICTION IS WAIVED AND EXCLUDED. In the event that Buyer is evicted from possession of whole or part of the Lot, neither NOAG nor Seller have any duty whatsoever to return any part of the Purchase Price to Buyer. Buyer is buying at Buyer’s sole risk and peril as to third parties who may claim rights in the Lot after the Sale. (iv) No warranty as to authorship. NOAG does not make any express or implied warranty as to authorship of works of art and fine art. 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. (v) No warranty of peaceful possession, etc. The following warranties are waived and excluded: the absence of hidden defects, peaceful possession, and ownership.

Except as required by local law, any express or implied warranty of any kind whatsoever is excluded by this Section 2(a). (b). Examination of property / Condition Reports. Prospective Buyers and Bidders are strongly advised to examine personally any property in which they are interested, before the Auction takes place. As a convenience, Bidders may request that NOAG produce a Condition Report (“Condition Report”) for a Lot, which, if produced, will provide additional detail concerning the condition of the Lot as observed by NOAG’s staff. NOAG reserves the right to decline to produce a Condition Report for any specific Lot, for any reason and in NOAG’s sole discretion. Rev. 08/01/22


(c). Catalogue and other descriptions. (i) All statements made by NOAG as to condition, authorship, period, culture, source, origin, measurement, quality, rarity, provenance, importance, or historical relevance, whether in the Catalogue entry for the Lot, in the Condition Report, and/ or in a bill of sale, or made orally or in writing elsewhere, are qualified statements of opinion only and are not to be relied on as statements of fact. Such statements do not constitute a representation, warranty or assumption of liability by NOAG of any kind. References in the Catalogue entry or the Condition Report to damage or restoration are for guidance only and should be evaluated by personal inspection by the Bidder or a knowledgeable representative. The absence of such a reference does not imply that an item is free from defects or restoration, nor does a reference to particular defects imply the absence of any others. (ii) Without limiting the foregoing, none of the Seller, NOAG, or any of NOAG’s officers, employees or agents, are responsible for the correctness of any statement of whatever kind concerning any Lot, whether written or oral, nor for any other errors or omissions in description or for any faults or defects in any Lot. (iii) Any Estimates provided should not be relied on as a statement that this is the price at which the item will sell or its value for any other purpose. Any written or oral appraisal, Estimate or other statement of NOAG or our representatives with respect to the estimated or expected selling price of any Lot of Property is a statement of opinion only and shall not be relied upon by Bidders or prospective Bidders as a prediction or guarantee of the actual selling price. (iv) NOAG shall not be liable for any errors or omissions in catalogue or other descriptions of the Property. Neither NOAG nor the Seller is responsible in any way for errors and omissions in the catalogue, or any supplemental material. (d). Further acknowledgement. As a Bidder and prospective Buyer, you further agree and acknowledge that: (i) You are not relying on NOAG’s skill or judgment in selecting to purchase any Lot; (ii) No oral or written statements in the Auction Catalogue, Condition Report, or elsewhere are the cause of or reason behind your purchase of any Lot; and you would have incurred such purchase regardless of any oral or written statements about condition, attribution, kind, quality, value, or authorship made in the catalogue or elsewhere; (iii) NOAG did not and could not have known that condition, attribution, kind, quality, expressed value, or authorship is the cause or reason why you decide to purchase any Lot; (iv) Your purchase of any Lot is not intended to gratify a nonpecuniary interest; and (v) NOAG did not know, nor should it have known, that any oral or written statement about a Lot in the catalogue, Condition Report or elsewhere would cause a nonpecuniary loss to a Buyer.

3. At the Auction (a). Registration before bidding / Bidding requirements. In order to be accepted as a Bidder and allowed to place a Bid, all Bidders must meet all of the following requirements: (i) A Bidder must complete and sign the attached registration form and provide identification to NOAG; (ii) NOAG may require the production of bank or other financial references or any other additional information; (iii) When making a Bid, a Bidder is accepting personal liability to pay the Purchase Price in full in the event that the Bidder submits the Winning Bid, unless it has been explicitly agreed in writing with NOAG before the auction of the Lot that the Bidder is acting as agent on behalf of an identified third party acceptable to NOAG, and that NOAG will only look to that principal for payment (iv) All Bids are to be made in U.S. currency unless agreed upon between NOAG and the Bidder; and (v) At NOAG’s sole discretion, NOAG may require any Bidder to post a cash deposit in an amount set by NOAG at its sole discretion. Such deposit may include, without limitation, a deposit of 25% of the Maximum Bid (or another amount set in NOAG’s sole discretion) in the case of Absentee Bids (defined below). (b). Refusal of admission / Rejection of Bidders. NOAG has the right, at its complete discretion, to refuse admission to the premises or participation in any Auction. NOAG reserves the right to reject any Bidder for any reason whatsoever and in NOAG’s sole discretion. (c). Absentee bids / Telephone bids. (i) As a convenience to Bidders, NOAG may allow a Bidder to submit an absentee bid (“Absentee Bid”) or telephone bid (“Telephone Bid”) by filling out (in full) the section of the attached registration form marked “Absentee Bids / Telephone Bids.” In order to submit an Absentee Bid or Telephone Bid for an Auction, that registration form must be filled out and submitted to NOAG no later than 5:00 p.m. central time on the last business day before the commencement of the Auction. (NOAG reserves the right to accept late Absentee Bid or Telephone Bid submissions in NOAG’s sole discretion.) All Absentee Bid submissions must include a maximum bid amount (“Maximum Bid”). (ii) If an Absentee Bid is submitted and accepted, at the time of the auction of the affected Lot, the Auctioneer or other NOAG staff will place the Absentee Bid at the amount of the opening bid amount, and will increase the amount as necessary until the earlier of (x) the Absentee Bid is the Winning Bid; or (y) the amount reaches the Maximum Bid. All such actions in this paragraph are at the sole discretion of the Auctioneer and/ or NOAG. If NOAG receives Absentee Bids on a particular Lot with identical Maximum Bid amounts, and at the Auction these are the highest bids on the Lot, the Lot will be sold to the person whose Absentee Bid was received and accepted first. In the event of a tie bid between an Absentee Bid and a Bid submitted by a Bidder physically present at the Auction (or a Telephone Bid), the Lot will be sold to physically present Bidder (or bidder submitting the Telephone Bid).

Rev. 08/01/22


(iii) If a Telephone Bid is submitted and accepted, at the time of the auction of the affected Lot, NOAG staff shall attempt to contact the Bidder using the telephone number provided. If successfully contacted, the Bidder shall then be afforded the opportunity to place a Bid on the Lot by telephone. Telephone Bids may be recorded. By submitting a Telephone Bid, the Bidder consents to the recording of the conversation and the placing of the Bid. (iv) Execution of Absentee Bids and Telephone Bids is a free service undertaken subject to other commitments at the time of the Auction and neither NOAG nor the Auctioneer shall have any liability for failing to execute an Absentee Bid or Telephone Bid or for errors and omissions in connection therewith. (d). Video or digital images. At some Auctions there may be a video or digital screen. Errors may occur in its operation and in the quality of the image and we do not accept liability for such errors. NOAG reserves the right to video tape and record proceedings at any Auctions. Any personal information obtained will be held in confidence by NOAG but may be used or shared with our affiliates and marketing partners for customer analysis purposes and to help us to tailor our services to buyer requirements. Any Bidder attending an Auction in person who does not wish to be video-taped may make arrangements to make a Telephone Bid in accordance with Section 3(c) above. (e). Reserves. All Lots are offered subject to a reserve, which is the confidential minimum price below which the Lot will not be sold (the “Reserve”). The Reserve for a Lot will not exceed the low Estimate for that Lot. The Auctioneer may open the bidding on any Lot below the Reserve by placing a bid on behalf of the Seller. The Auctioneer may continue to bid on behalf of the Seller up to the amount of the Reserve, either by placing consecutive bids or by placing bids in response to other bidders. Notwithstanding the foregoing, a Lot may be sold at a Hammer Price below the Reserve, at the discretion of the Auctioneer and NOAG, in any manner consistent with the agreement between NOAG and the Seller. (f). No bidding by Seller. Under no circumstances shall Seller (as agent or principal), whether by itself or through its representatives, employees or agents (except as through the Auctioneer as set forth in Section 3(e) above), enter or cause to be entered a Bid on Seller’s Lot. (g). Auctioneer’s discretion. The Auctioneer has the right at his or her absolute and sole discretion to refuse any Bid, to advance the bidding in such a manner as he or she may decide, to withdraw or divide any Lot, to combine any two or more Lots, and in the event of any error or dispute, to determine the Winning Bid, to continue the bidding, to cancel the Sale or to reoffer and resell the Lot or item in dispute. If any dispute arises after the Sale, NOAG’s sale record is conclusive. Unless otherwise announced by the Auctioneer at the time of Sale, all Bids are per Lot as numbered in the Catalogue and no Lot shall be divided for Sale. NOAG and/or the Auctioneer may withdraw any Lot at any time before such Lot is offered at Auction, for any reason and in their sole and absolute discretion. (h). Successful bid and passing of risk. The Auctioneer shall have absolute discretion in determining the Winning Bid and the striking of the Auctioneer’s hammer marks the acceptance of the highest and best bid as the Winning Bid and the conclusion of a contract for sale between the Seller and the Buyer. Risk and responsibility for the Lot but not its title passes to the Buyer immediately upon announcement of the Winning Bid at the Auction. (i). Post-auction sale. In the event that there is no Winning Bid at Auction for a Lot, or the Lot is withdrawn from the Auction, or the Sale is cancelled for non-payment pursuant to Section 4(g) below, NOAG may sell the Lot at public or private sale at any time thereafter, in a manner consistent with the agreement between Seller and NOAG. (j). NOAG assumes no responsibility for failure to execute Bids for any reason whatsoever.

Title to the Lot does not pass to the Buyer until the full amount of the Purchase Price has been tendered and received by NOAG in good cleared funds, even in circumstances where the Lot has been released to the Buyer. (c). Credit Cards. Your signature on this form constitutes permission to charge the full amount of the Purchase Price on your credit card, if you are the Buyer on a Lot and payment is not received within five business days of the close of the Auction. Your signature on this form also constitutes permission to charge the full amount of Storage Charges (defined below), if and when accrued, on a periodic basis on your credit card. (d). Release of Lot to Buyer. No Lot will be released to the Buyer unless and until NOAG receives full payment of the Purchase Price, and such payment has cleared and NOAG has received confirmation of all funds owed. At its sole discretion, NOAG may release a specific Lot at any time, notwithstanding the foregoing provision. In addition, NOAG may require that Lots not be released until the Buyer has cleared additional checks in NOAG’s sole discretion, including without limitation, any anti-money laundering or antiterrorism financing checks to NOAG’s satisfaction. In the event that a Buyer fails to complete any anti-money laundering or anti-terrorism financing checks to NOAG’s satisfaction, NOAG shall be entitled to cancel the Sale and take any other action permitted or required under applicable law. In addition, notwithstanding the foregoing, Lots cannot be released until after the conclusion of the Auction. (e). Export/Import license and Dealers. It is the Buyer’s sole responsibility to obtain any relevant export or import license. The denial of any license or any delay in obtaining licenses shall not justify the rescission of any sale nor any delay in making bill payment for the Lot; and shall not limit or alter any of the obligations of the Buyer herein. Dealers purchasing for resale must enter appropriate their Dealer Resale Number on the attached registration form and provide NOAG with proper documentation. Rev. 08/01/22


(f). Storage charge. Subject to the foregoing provisions, any Lot that is not picked up by the end of the day on the fifteenth calendar day following the conclusion of the Auction is subject to an additional storage charge of $5.00 per Lot per day (“Storage Charge”) for as long as the Lot is stored at NOAG’s facilities. The outstanding amount of this Storage Charge must be paid in full (in addition to the Purchase Price) before such Lot will be released to the Buyer. Such Storage Charge accrues on a daily basis and is billed monthly. All items handled or stored will be at the Buyer’s risk. NOAG is not liable for any damage to Lots after the conclusion of the Auction. (g). Remedies for non-payment. If the Buyer fails to make payment in full of the Purchase Price in good cleared funds within the time required by Section 4(b) above, or payment in full of any applicable Storage Charge when incurred, NOAG shall be entitled in its absolute discretion to exercise one or more of the following rights or remedies (in addition to asserting any other rights or remedies available by law): (i) to charge outstanding amounts to the Buyer’s credit card; (ii) to charge interest at the rate of one and one-half percent (1.5%) per month (but not to exceed the highest amount chargeable under applicable law); (iii) to hold the Buyer liable for the total amount due and to commence legal proceedings for its recovery together with interest, legal fees and costs to the fullest extent permitted under applicable law; (iv) to exercise any other remedy or remedies available under the law, including but not limited to a second sale of said item in accordance with the provisions of applicable law, including the subsequent enforcement of any deficiency against the initial buyer; (v) to cancel the sale; (vi) to resell the property publicly or privately on such terms as we shall think fit; (vii) to pay the Seller an amount up to the net proceeds payable in respect of the amount bid by the defaulting Buyer; (viii) to set off against any amounts which NOAG may owe the Buyer in any other transactions, the outstanding amount remaining unpaid by the Buyer; (ix) where several amounts are owed by the Buyer to NOAG, in respect of different transactions, to apply any amount paid to discharge any amount owed in respect of any particular transaction, whether or not the Buyer so directs; (x) to reject at any future Auction any Bids made by or on behalf of the Buyer or to obtain a deposit from the Buyer before accepting any Bids; (xi) to exercise all the rights and remedies of a person holding security and/or privilege over any property in our possession owned by the Buyer, whether by way of pledge, security interest or in any other way, to the fullest extent permitted under Louisiana law (including without limitation under La. Civil Code art. 3247, La. R.S. 10:7-209 and 10:7-210 and other applicable law), or (xii) to take such other action as NOAG deems necessary or appropriate. In connection with the item (xi) above, the Buyer will be deemed to have granted such security to NOAG and NOAG may retain the affected Lot and any property of the Buyer as collateral security for such Buyer’s obligations to NOAG and to the Seller

If we resell the property under Section 4(g)(vi) above, the Buyer shall be liable for payment of any deficiency between the total amount originally due to us and the price obtained upon resale as well as for all costs, expenses, damages, legal fees and commissions and premiums of whatever kind associated with both sales or otherwise arising from the default. If we pay any amount to the Seller under paragraph (vii) above, the Buyer acknowledges that NOAG shall have all of the rights of the Seller, however arising, to pursue the Buyer for such amount. (h). Shipping and packing. All shipping, packing, and transportation of Lots from NOAG’s facilities is the responsibility of Buyer. NOAG may, as a courtesy, assist Buyer with necessary arrangements, but by doing so, NOAG assumes no responsibility or liability for shipping, packing, moving, or transportation, including without limitation damage to Lots, damage to Buyer’s vehicle, or any personal injury of any persons involved. (i). Earlier payment may be required. For any specific Lot, and notwithstanding the provisions of Section 4(b) above, NOAG may require, in its sole discretion, that the Hammer Price for the Lot be paid immediately upon the striking of the Auctioneer’s hammer and announcement of the Winning Bid, with the balance of the Purchase Price being due by the close of the Auction.

5.Copyright The copyright in all images, illustrations and written material produced by or for NOAG relating to a Lot including without limitation the contents of the Catalogue, is and shall remain at all times the property of NOAG and shall not be used by the Buyer or Bidder, nor by anyone else, without our prior written consent. NOAG and the Seller make no representation or warranty that the Buyer of a Lot will acquire any copyright or other reproduction rights in it.

6. Severability If any part of these Conditions of Sale is found by any court to be invalid, illegal or unenforceable, that part shall be discounted and the rest of the conditions shall continue to be valid to the fullest extent permitted by law.

7. Data Collection In connection with the operation of our auction business, NOAG may need to seek personal information from Bidders or obtain information about Bidders from third parties (e.g., credit checks from banks). Such information will be processed and kept by us in confidence. Some of Bidders’ personal data may also need to be shared with third party service providers (e.g., shipping or storage companies) for Bidders’ benefit. By participating in an Auction, you agree to all previously stated disclosure.

8. Law and Jurisdiction The rights and obligations of the parties with respect to these Conditions of Sale, the conduct of the Auction and any matters connected with any of the foregoing shall be governed and interpreted under the laws of the State of Louisiana. By bidding at the Auction and/or through execution of the attached registration form, the Bidder consents to the exclusive jurisdiction of the courts of the State of Louisiana and the Federal courts of the United States of America located in the Eastern District of Louisiana.
