LETTER FROM THE DIRECTOR OF AUCTIONS

Collections are curious and wonderful things. They are, by most accounts, considered to be a sum greater than their parts. However, I counter that notion, because I know even the smallest item in a beloved collection can singularly represent a world of relevance and meaning. Even though we hold our collections dear – whether comprised of art, jewelry, antique furniture or the like – these items are often simply passing through our hands, moving from one generation to another, or sought out in far-flung flea markets, from private dealers or, of course, at auction. As Director of Auctions for New Orleans Auction Galleries, I’ve had the privilege of helping people create and curate their collections. I truly enjoy being a part of their exciting and satisfying pursuits, and I am equally honored when a client allows me to be part of the consigning of their collection. It’s a valued responsibility to bring their collections to NOAG so that these items continue that succession, moving into new hands. Working in consignments during the past three decades, I’ve had the incredible opportunity to visit countless homes across the country and meet the most interesting people. I’m constantly surprised and engaged by our consignees, as they, and their collections, broaden my knowledge and enrich my life. A standout among this distinguished group of people is Dr. Carroll Ball, of Hillman, Mississippi, whom I met in the late 1980s. This was at the onset of my career, and he was one of the first consummate collectors I encountered. His passion for miniatures, silhouettes, fine portraits and American classical furniture made a lasting impression on me, helping me understand what it truly means to collect. Therefore, it is a personal privilege to present in the pages of this catalogue Dr. Ball’s lifetime collection, which includes fine art, furniture, porcelain and Grand Tour bronzes.

A more recent encounter reminded me that each client and each home brings the excitement of anticipation and unknown possibilities. As I entered a contemporary high-rise penthouse in the beachside town of Destin, Florida, I was blown over by the choice of fine French furnishings and lighting in this polished and elegant retreat.You’ll find many of these items, including Boulle desks and side tables, ormolu-mounted commodes, vitrines, clocks, gilt-bronze chandeliers, mirrors and much more in the following pages. This auction also features an incredible private collection of jewelry with pieces from Van Cleef & Arpels, David Webb and Henry Dunay. Also offered is a stunning Fred Leighton gemstone and diamond bib necklace set with an array of natural ruby, sapphire and emerald cabochons. This piece is one of five similar necklaces designed by Leighton, one of which was worn by actress Amy Adams at the 2009 Academy Awards, and another worn by Beyoncé in the pages of InStyle magazine the year prior. But, of course, if jewelry isn’t your bag, we have you covered. This auction will include a fabulous Van Cleef & Arpels handbag and four sumptuous Hermes Birkin bags. (Just thinking ahead: It’s a great time to check off the designer handbag collector on your holiday list.) This auction offers such a variety of exquisite, rare and beautiful items. It is with pride that I recognize the hard work by our staff. Their coordinated effort – which can, behind the scenes, resemble a major theater production – has resulted in what I know will be an exciting auction on July 28-29, along with our evening reception on Thursday, July 26 from 5-7:30 p.m. I invite you to sit back and enjoy leafing through the pages of our latest catalogue. With 1,050 lots, perhaps you will find the perfect piece to compliment your own cherished collection.

THE ESTATE OF

JOHN ELLIOT BRADSHAW HOUSTON, TEXAS

New Orleans Auction Galleries is honored to offer fine art, jewelry, garden statuary, antique furniture and many other unique treasures from the Estate of John Elliot Bradshaw, internationally renowned educator, counselor, philosopher, theologian, motivational speaker and New York Times bestselling author.

Bradshaw hosted a number of PBS television series on topics such as love, addiction(s), eating disorders, relationships, recovery, codependency, family systems and spirituality. Through his television production ventures with PBS, John helped raise over $12 million for the Public Broadcasting System.

Born into a troubled family on June 29, 1933 in Houston, Texas and abandoned by his alcoholic father at a young age, John became both an academic overachiever and an out-of-control teenager. He later studied for the Roman Catholic priesthood at a Basilian seminary where he remained for nine and one-half years, leaving just a few days prior to being ordained. During that time, he earned his Bachelor of Arts and Master’s degrees in psychology, philosophy, and theology from St. Michael’s College at the University of Toronto, graduating Magna Cum Laude. He continued his postgraduate studies at Rice University and earned a Masters of Spiritual Psychology at University of Santa Monica. Throughout his education, John was the recipient of many merit awards, including the Trustees' Scholarship, John MacDonald Scholarship in Philosophy, Cardinal Mercier Gold Medal in Philosophy and the Trustees' Gold Medal for Academic Excellence.

For over four decades, Bradshaw combined his exceptional skills and personal experiences from his childhood and struggles with alcoholism to become one of the leading figures in the fields of addiction/ recovery, family systems, relationships, spiritual and emotional growth, and management training. He was a driving force in introducing recovery concepts of “dysfunctional families,” “toxic shame,” “PRSD - Post Romantic Stress Disorder,” and the “wounded inner child” into mainstream vocabulary.

During his years of study, John developed a drinking problem, and on December 11, 1965, took a drastic step—he committed himself to Austin State Hospital for the treatment of his dependency to alcohol. John signed himself out of the hospital after six days and entered an alcohol recovery program. Soon afterward he began to lecture at a local church, and before long, was in high demand as a counselor, teacher, public speaker, and corporate consultant.

Bradshaw touched and transformed the lives of millions, selling over 12.5 million books in 42 different languages and reaching an estimated 500,000 people through his lectures and workshops. He was elected by a group of his peers as “one of the most influential writers on emotional health in the 20th century” along with Sigmund Freud, Carl G. Jung, Joseph Campbell, Erik Erikson, Erich Fromm, Virginia Saturday and Elizabeth Kübler Ross. To learn more about the legacy of John Bradshaw, visit www.johnbradshaw.com.

He was a member of the First Families of Mississippi and served as Governor General of the Order from 2001 to 2003. He served three terms on the Board of Directors of the Mississippi Historical Society.

THE ESTATE OF

MARIANNE HOCHULI HOUSTON, TEXAS

Marianne Hochuli (née Mariana Balazs) was born in December of 1922 in Budapest, Hungary. As a child, she endured a debilitating medical condition requiring a radical surgery, which was ultimately a success. Marianne came from a family of art collectors, and was interested in art from a young age. An original Kandinsky painting hung in the family home in Budapest, but her mother was slightly embarrassed by the subject, so it was hung in a part of the home not frequented by guests. As a young woman in the midst of World War II, she endured more harrowing experiences. With dogged persistence and chutzpah, she managed to escape to Paris, then London and on to Berlin. She worked for Radio Free Europe and, being fluent in Hungarian, German, French and English, she found work as an interpreter for the United States forces. In 1952, she departed for Brazil after being rejected by several countries, including Mexico, Canada and, ironically, the United States. In Brazil, she met and married Fred Hochuli, a Swiss-born hotel manager. They lived happily for a time until he died, leaving her a widow in her forties. Nevertheless, her interest in the fine arts and all things cultural blossomed as she now began to travel for pleasure, acquiring fine art along the way. Eventually, she found her way to Houston, where she decided to make her home. She developed lasting friendships with those who shared her interest in the arts and the good life. She frequented the museums, the ballet, the symphony and opera. In particular, she loved the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston where she continued to attend lectures into her early 90s. Her passion for travel to exotic locales never waned as she visited Egypt, Antarctica, China, Iran, Machu Picchu and more well into her 80s.

As she began to lose her sight, her loyal friends rallied around her making every Wednesday (or “Vensday”, as she would say) special by taking her out to dinner. Her friends estimate that they shared over 600 “Vensday night dinners” with this amazing lady. In her last few months, the dinners were shared at her bedside. The words of “The Last Rose of Summer” ring true to the friends she left behind as it expresses what this diminutive 4’ 6” lady meant to them. New Orleans Auction Galleries is pleased to offer old master paintings from the Estate of Marianne Hochuli.

In Paris, he received wide acclaim, exhibiting regularly with the Post-Impressionists at the Jeu de Paume and at Durand-Ruel, where he met Suzanne Eisendieck, a fellow German artist, whom he married in 1938. Eisendieck, who was represented by Madame Zak, studied under Fritz August Pfuhle and attended the Berlin State Academy for Fine and Applied Arts. During the German occupation of France, Edzard’s work, like most great modern artists of the

time, was determined to be “degenerate”; his and Eisendieck’s paintings of women did not “celebrate German womanhood”, but chose to depict the “ideal cretin and whore” instead at carnival, the theatre, opera or racetrack as three of these five lots illustrate. While Edzard embraced Impressionist and Post-Impressionist study of optics and pleinair observations, he was equally influenced by the Fauves and Expressionists, preferring instead to examine color from a personal emotive experience culled from the drama of the streets, cabarets and the denizens who frequented them.

191

Richard Cosway, a leading English portrait miniature painter of the Regency period, was appointed painter to King George IV, then Prince of Wales. Between 1780 and 1811, he painted more than fifty portraits of George IV and the royal family. Cosway and his Italian/ American wife Maria Hadfield, another accomplished portrait painter, cultivated a large aristocratic and famous clientele that included the Duke of Wellington, Viscountess of Melbourne, Sarah Siddons, Madame du Barry, Napoleon and Thomas Jefferson. Both Cosways were noted fashionistas of the London and American scene. As the rich fur stole offset by the windswept sideburns of the sitter in this portrait illustrates, Richard Cosway’s success lay in his keen ability to incorporate the prevailing vogue into soft, hazy portraits that enhanced the beauty and the elegance of the sitter.

193 Attributed to George Englehart (British, 1752‑1829) “Portrait Miniature of a British Officer”, ca. 1780 watercolor, unsigned together with R. C. Woolnough (British, active 1801‑1805), “Portrait Miniature of a Young Man”, 1802, watercolor, signed and dated on frame backing. Both glazed in brass oval frames. overall sight 3‑7/8” x 2‑3/8” and 2‑7/8” x 2‑3/8”, respectively Provenance: Estate of Dr. Carroll Ball, Jackson, Mississippi. $1,200‑$1,800

192

Another Woolnough portrait of a young man, whose physiognomy greatly resembles the sitter here, sold in England as lot 103 in Golding, Young & Mawer sale in Lincoln on November 19, 2014. Given the age of the sitters and the dates of the works, 1801 and 1802, the sitters are probably related, and are likely brothers. According to the catalogue description, the other Woolnough portrait descended in the family. By repute, the sitter was midshipman Harrison, a sailor who served on the famed HMS Victory between 1803‑1805. He is not believed, however, to have been in service during Lord Nelson’s Battle of Trafalgar. 194 British School (Fourth Quarter 18th/First Quarter 19th Century) Three Portrait Miniatures of Gentlemen

92

An accomplished portraitist, William Riviere dedicated most of his career to art education, first at Cheltenham College, Gloucestershire, England (where he was instrumental in creating a highly respected art school) and later at Oxford University (where he stressed the importance of practical art instruction in higher education). He received his earliest training from his father, a wellrespected drawing master himself, before attending the Royal Academy School of Art. While at the RA, he was lauded by his professors and fellow students as a precise and talented draughtsman. The compelling family portrait presented here is a wonderful example of the fineness and detail of Riviere’s work - the complex multi-figural composition, the lush fabrics and glinting metals which almost revel in their textural variety, the well-delineated background filled with elements of wealth and prestige. Riviere was a consistent, if infrequent, exhibitor at the Royal Academy and the British Institution. His son was the artist Briton Riviere, R.A. (1840‑1920).

$1,000‑$1,500 The lozenge shape of arms here, crested by a flowing ribbon, traditionally indicate that they belong to an unmarried woman, who is an heiress in her own right.

As the arms were made several decades after their deaths, it was probably made to match a service inherited by one of their younger children; the Marquess predeceased his father, the Duke of Rutland, and thus never assumed the dukedom, which passed to the Marquess’ eldest legitimate son, Charles Manners (1754‑1787), 4th Duke of Rutland.

As was the custom, the regiment was styled with the name of its successive colonels until 1751, when it was named the 24th Regiment of Foot (having been ranked 24th in precedence four years earlier). They served in the American Revolutionary War, surrendering to Horatio Gates in 1777, and later fought in the Zulu, Second Boer and both World Wars. The Regiment’s devices of a sphinx and the word “Egypt” were awarded in July 1802 as a Battle Honor for their having been one of the 33 regiments which defeated Napoleon in Egypt in 1801. In 1881, in honor of its origins, the regiment was again renamed to the South Wales Borderers, which it remains today.

oil on canvas unsigned, a “Vose Galleries/Boston, Massachusetts” label en verso. Framed. 17‑1/2” x 14”, framed 23‑1/2” x 20‑1/4” Provenance: Estate of Dr. Carroll Ball, Jackson, Mississippi. $5,000‑$8,000 The Cantonese artist Guan Zuolin, colloquially known as Spoilum, was one of the first Chinese artists to work in oil on canvas as opposed to the more usual inks and colors on paper or silk. A resident of the busy port city of Guangzhou, the only Chinese city to allow trade between Chinese and Westerners, Spoilum taught himself Western art techniques by copying British paintings and prints. He specialized in portraits of British and American naval officers and prosperous local merchants, though he was also known to produce the souvenir landscapes popular with the Western visitors to the city. His portraits, as evidenced by the one of an unidentified officer presented here, are almost always in 3/4 length, against a vague background, the sitter gazing directly at the viewer, rendered in a minimal palette of black and fleshtones with little interplay of light and shadow - all of which serve to emphasize the features of the sitter. Works by Spoilum are conserved in numerous maritime museums including the Peabody Essex Museum, Salem, Massachusetts.

He is best known for leading the armies of Rome and of Italy in 1798‑1799, thus establishing the Parthenopean Republic - a French First Republic in the Kingdom of Naples territory. He is commemorated on the list of names inscribed on the Arc-de-Triomphe. French Revolution cockards and medallions were typically affixed to the lapel or breast in the form of a brooch (called necklet); honorary ones were also fashioned to be worn around the neck. In his series “Collection des Grands Hommes” of the Revolution by Jean Francois Garneray, Joseph Chalier is depicted with the same tricolor neck ribbon as Championnet. Garneray also portrayed a few other dignitaries with tricolor necklets, neck ribbons and sashes.

Jacques-Joseph de Gault, to whom this portrait is attributed, was a former Sevres painter, who trained at the Academie de Saint-Luc in Paris. He specialized in portrait miniatures and was a trompe-l’oeil master. He perfected grisaille and faux painting, creating the illusion of porcelain and enamel, notably the blue grisaille (featured on the reverse of this portrait), which mimicked works by Sevres and Wedgwood. De Gault was the also the first artist to paint imitation gems in enamel on snuff boxes. 398 verso

In the 18th, 19th, and early 20th century, the Grand Tour was deemed essential to the completion of one’s education. Undertaken by the wealthy - and those of the upper middle-class privileged enough to have a sponsor - the duration of the tour could be several months or several years. While generally including visits to numerous countries, it was the ancient ruins of Italy that most enflamed the imagination and these “grand tourists” would spend days, weeks, or months roaming the ruins of Rome, Herculaneum, and Pompeii. They would bring back mementos of these travels, often small-scale bronze replicas of the marble statuary, as evidence of their cultural excursions and as reminders of their halcyon youth. The bronzes offered in lots 402-410 are fine examples of the work created by the accomplished Italian artisans for the consumption of the tourist trade.

This sculpture has been acknowledged by the Galleria Pietro Bazzanti e Figlio. $25,000‑$40,000 Born into a working class Florentine family, Donatello Gabbrielli revealed an innate artistic ability at a young age. While his family's financial situation prevented him from enrolling in one of of the prestigious art academies, with his parent's encouragement he eventually entered the studio of Cesare Fantacchiotti (Italian, 1844-1922) as an apprentice/student. Flourishing in the studio's strict and regimented environment, Gabbrielli soon became the sculptor master's most promising student - in fact, upon Fantacchiotti's death, Gabbrielli inherited the studio. He began exhibiting, nationally and internationally, and won numerous awards and accolades for his allegorical and mythological depictions of the female form. The impressive figural grouping presented here reveals Gabbrielli's mastery of the difficult and uncompromising medium of marble. The sophisticated composition of the slightly twisting body of the woman with one elegantly extended arm, the delicate modeling of the facial features, and the ability to create a sense of textural variation are all indicative of a true master. In 1955 Gabbrielli was honored by being appointed Professor at the Accademia delle Arti del Disegno, Florence, the oldest art school in the world.

495

$1,800‑$2,500 Duret was an academically trained sculptor whose most popular and familiar works reveal his deep love and appreciation for the antiquities of the Classical Age. The son of an artist, he trained with his father and studied under Francois-Joseph Bosio, before traveling to Europe where he soon immersed himself in the history, culture and artistic traditions of the region. The original models for the works presented here (part of his debut exhibition at the Paris Salon of 1838), bear a resemblance in form and composition to the Dancing Satyr, a 1st/2nd century CE Roman sculpture (itself a copy of the 2nd century Hellenistic work), now conserved at the Uffizi Gallery, Rome, and the Dancing Faun, a 2nd century BC Greco-Roman sculpture, now conserved at the National Archaeological Museum in Naples. Duret’s figures, however, exhibit more freedom from the somewhat controlled postures of his inspiration; his dancers turn, twist and contort, revealing exuberant expressions and easily conveying to the viewers their pleasure and enthusiasm for the dance in which they are so completely engrossed.

The Armory Show that toured the U.S. in 1913 played a pivotal role in his artistic development. Of all the artists included in that exhibition, it was Cezanne who made the deepest impression on Cummings, not only stylistically but also with the subjects he chose to paint. As Cezanne lovingly painted his native Provence, Cummings did so with his studies of Mount Chocorua, near his parents’ home in the White Mountains of New Hampshire. As a poet and a painter, he was drawn to a multitude of subjects, though nature played the most prominent role in his work.

816

The production of Calcedonia glass is a difficult technique which incorporates a precise amount of silver nitrate to produce the luminous, yet ultimately uncontrollable, striations of color. It was originally created in the mid-15th century in Murano, Italy; the technique was forgotten until the 19th century when it was briefly revived by the glass master Lorenzo Radi (1803‑1874). In the mid-70s, Loredano Rosin began to work with Calcedonia glass, believing the technique enhanced the smooth, fluid forms of the hand-sculpted glass. He trained his younger brother Dino in this difficult technique and, after Loredano’s death in 1993, Dino took over much of this work, at which he soon excelled. Dino Rosin began his glassmaking apprenticeship at the age of twelve, before joining the studio of his elder brothers in 1963. The resulting works, as exemplified by the delicate violin presented here, reveal the serendipitous nature of this technique with its streaks of unexpected colors.

Exhibited: “Ida Kohlmeyer - Standing Among Giants”, Louisiana Art and Science Museum, Baton Rouge, Louisiana, 2008/9 $20,000‑$40,000 One of New Orlean’s most beloved artists, Ida Kohlmeyer did not begin to pursue art seriously until she was well into her 30s, when she approached her studies with a vengeance. She attended John McCrady’s Art School in the French Quarter, took classes with Thomas Hart Benton at the Art Student’s League in New York, studied with Hans Hoffman in Provincetown, MA, and received her MFA from Tulane University. It was Hoffman who first exposed Kohlmeyer to the tenets of Abstract Expressionism and, influenced by this influential art movement, she egan to move away from the purely figural in her paintings and sculpture. Her works are exuberant explorations of color and shape, in which she incorporates her own idiosyncratic symbolic language that has proven enigmatically compelling.

835 Thomas Merton (1915‑1968), ed. Monks Pond, Three Issues Trappist, Kentucky, 1968, Numbers 1 (Spring), 2 (Summer) and 3 (Fall) stab-staple bound letter-sized leaves. [Breit & Daggy 1.60.A-C] 28.0 cm x 21.8 cm $1,000‑$1,500 Monks Pond is a collection of poetry and short prose which from its inception was intended as a journal with a limited run; the present lot includes all but one of the original four rare issues. It was one of Merton’s last literary undertakings before his death in December of 1968, and comprised primarily poems, short prose and photography by Merton and his friends. Printed at the Abbey of Gethsemani on poor-quality paper and with a run of no more than 200 issues, copies of the journal issues are quite rare; even the facsimile omnibus edition published by the University of Kentucky Press in 1989 has become quite scarce and expensive. 835

889 Attributed to Charles Bridges (British/Virginia, 1672‑1747) “Portrait of a Seated Toddler Wearing a Pudding Cap” oil on canvas unsigned. Framed. 36” x 27‑1/2”, framed 41‑1/2” x 32‑1/2” Provenance: Estate of Dr. Carroll Ball, Jackson, Mississippi. $4,000‑$7,000 A somewhat elusive figure, little is known of the schooling or artistic training of Charles Bridges, though he worked in the British portrait tradition of artists such as Sir Godfrey Kneller. In his late 60s, he made the extraordinary decision to travel to Williamsburg, Virginia to set up a studio. Virginia was then the largest and wealthiest Colony, but had not yet received the influx of British artists that other American colonies had. This afforded Bridges a unique opportunity, and he quickly assumed the role of a “house” painter for many of the most influential and prosperous families, living with them while he completed the commissioned portraits of the various members. Several of the portraits attributed to Bridges during this time of members of the Grymes, Byrd and Ludwell families bear a striking resemblance to the portrait presented here. Two in particular - “Child with Dog” and “The Boys of the Grymes Family” (private collections) - reveal nearly identical white-feathered black velvet pudding caps. These caps, common in Britain and Colonial America, were padded headwear for toddlers to prevent injury; the ones depicted in these three portraits are very distinctive in design. The composition of the painting offered here, with a young child and his beloved pet dog set against a vague landscape, was one frequently employed by Bridges in his portraits of children. Bridges was not known to sign or date his portraits.

Sayre, best known for his philanthropy, was instrumental in the formation of many Kentucky colleges. He established the Sayre Female Institute (now the Sayre School in Lexington), the first endowed college for women in America. He was one of the founding members of the University of Kentucky (formerly the Agricultural Society of Fayette County), and built the library at Centre College in Danville, Kentucky. In addition to higher education, Sayre contributed significantly to the development of public charities, including churches, missions and orphanages. A life-sized statue of Sayre was erected in Lexington Cemetery, where he is buried.

909 Louisiana School (First Quarter 19th Century) Two Historic New Orleans Portrait Miniatures each watercolor and gum arabic including “Mary Minor Kenner (ca. 1786‑1814), Wife of Planter and Politician William Kenner (1776‑1823)", unsigned, frame backing with typewritten description identifying the sitter and Duncan Kenner Brent’s card, sight 2‑1/8” x 1‑7/8”; and Ambrose Duval (French/New Orleans, ca. 1778‑1860), “Portrait of a Young Man in a Navy Coat with White Waistcoat and Stock”, signed lower right, 2‑3/4” x 2‑1/4”. Each glazed in an oval frame. framed 5” x 4‑3/4” and 3‑3/8” x 2‑3/4”, respectively Provenance: The Kenner portrait with sitter’s son Duncan Kenner (1813‑1884), thence by descent through the sitter’s great-grandson Duncan Kenner Brent (1877‑1934), son of Rosella Kenner (1849‑1928) and General Joseph L. Brent (1826‑1905). Both portraits, Estate of Dr. Carroll Ball, Jackson, Mississippi. $1,200‑$1,800 Exhibited: By family repute, the Kenner portrait was borrowed/ exhibited in the first half of the 20th century by the National Gallery of Art in Washington, D.C., and by the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York, in concert with the “Carrington miniatures”.

Little is known of Mary Minor proper, the sitter of this fine portrait miniature. She married William Kenner at the age of fourteen in 1800 and died fourteen years later. Her husband was a founding father of the city, and their four sons were major planters, who developed the New Orleans suburb of Kenner, after whom the city was named. William Kenner, a native of Virginia, was a prominent New Orleans planter, businessman and politician, who was involved in the brokerage of the Louisiana Purchase of 1803. Collectively, their sons owned Belle Grove, Pasture, Oakland and Ashland Plantations, and sold portions of the land for the Kenner property and for the New Orleans/Jackson Mississippi Railroad. The French-born Ambrose Duval was one of the earliest and most successful portrait miniaturists working in New Orleans in the early 19th century. In 1805 he painted the famous portrait of William Claiborne, the first governor of Louisiana, now conserved in the Historic New Orleans Collection. In addition to portraiture, he advertised his services when he arrived in 1803 as a teacher and naturalist painter of landscapes and flowers. His predilection for the latter made him an astute ornithologist. By 1829, he had amassed an extensive collection of preserved birds in his Bourbon Street studio, which he lent to his friend John James Audubon for his study of Birds of America.

Both matted and glazed in matching giltwood frames. sights 3‑3/4” x 2‑3/4”, framed 8‑1/4” x 7‑1/4” Provenance: Estate of Dr. Carroll Ball, Jackson, Mississippi. $1,000‑$1,500 Aaron Burr, the former third Vice President of the United States and ornery politician, best known for shooting Alexander Hamilton, lived a long, vigorous life, marrying Eliza Jumel - the wealthy socialite - at the spry age of seventy-seven in July 1833. Jumel, the widow of the affluent French merchant Stephen Jumel, left Burr after four months of marriage due to his plunder and mismanagement of her fortune; not coincidentally, she chose Alexander Hamilton’s son as her divorce attorney. In late 1833, probably to commemorate his marriage, Burr commissioned James van Dyck to paint his portrait, and possibly Jumel’s also. Burr sat for van Dyck on six separate occasions. When the portrait was complete in January 1834, Burr had already split from Jumel and the portrait was not paid for, which prompted van Dyck to offer it to the public with the terse description on the back: “For Sale. Aaron Burr, painted in 1834, in six sittings by James van Dyck. If not satisfactory, return to 18 Centre St. Room No. 3”. According to the New York Historical Society, where the van Dyck portrait of Burr is now conserved, multiple copies and prints of the portrait were made, especially after Burr’s death in 1836. These two watercolor portraits, particularly the Burr, are believed to be period copies of probably one of the van Dyck studies and/or other extant portraits.

Born in New York City, David and James Codwise were sons of George Codwise, a merchant and ship owner who was engaged in West Indies trade, and his wife, Anna Maria Van Ranst Codwise. David graduated from Columbia University in 1798, became a successful lawyer, and married New York socialite Martha “Patty” Livingston. A man of cultivated taste, David Codwise built Cottage Orne, designed by architect Alexander Jackson Davis in 1835 near New Rochelle, New York. The plan for the Cottage Orne was published in Davis’ book Rural Residences, Etc. in 1837 and the original plan is in the Metropolitan Museum of Art collection. Martha Codwise was a founding member of The Women’s Hospital in 1855 which was “intended exclusively for the treatment of diseases peculiar to women.” David’s elder brother James Codwise married Rebecca Rogers, daughter of John and Agnes Rogers of Mt. Victory Plantation, St. Croix, West Indies in 1797. James and Rebecca inherited her father’s sugar plantation and slaves. The two brothers remained close despite the distance and their differing perspectives on slavery. In 1818, Rebecca Codwise traveled with her children from St. Croix to visit her brother and sister-in-law in New York City. David and Martha Codwise did not have any children of their own, but were instrumental in the raising of his brother’s children. With mounting debts and creditors, James and Rebecca lost the sugar plantation and many of their slaves by 1848. The couple continued to live on the island and ran a boarding house. Several of their children eventually left St. Croix and moved to Alabama and Michigan. The conflicting viewpoints on slavery remained in the Codwise family dynamics and during the Civil War, three of the grandsons served in the war, two on the side of the Confederacy and one with the Union forces. The brothers commissioned prominent American artists for their portraits. David selected Rembrandt Peale, the son of famed artist Charles Wilson Peale and an acclaimed artist, to paint a distinguished and elegant portrait of him with book in hand and seated in front of a swagged curtain. While James and Rebecca selected John Trumbull, renowned artist and student of Benjamin West, to paint their pendant portraits that are in the New York Historical Society collection.

915 John Neagle (American/Philadelphia, 1796‑1865, active New Orleans early 1820s) "Portrait of John Wandell (ca. 1790-1868)", 1833 oil on canvas signed and dated mid-right, “Kennedy Galleries, Inc., N.Y.” labels with artist and sitter en verso, handwritten inscription identifying previous owner with provenance. Framed. 30” x 25”, framed 39‑1/2” x 34‑1/2” Provenance: Estate of Dr. Carroll Ball, Jackson, Mississippi. $1,000‑$1,500 John Neagle traveled through Kentucky and visited New Orleans in 1819 to 1820 in search of portrait commissions. Eventually settling in Philadelphia, Neagle was introduced to the city’s leading portraitist, Thomas Sully and married his stepdaughter. Neagle enjoyed a successful career as portraitist of prominent members of the community. Additionally, he painted the portraits of his fellow artists, architects and colleagues. The “A. M’Elroy’s Philadelphia Directory” of 1839 lists John Wandell as a gilder, and he may have become acquainted with Neagle through his work with frames.

915

John Wandell was born in New York around 1790, though precisely where and to whom remains a mystery, as do his early years and education. However, his life in Philadelphia is well-documented, beginning with his marriage on March 8, 1817 at the First Reformed Church of Philadelphia to Eliza Burt, who was born October 8, 1795 in Cumberland County New Jersey to Moses Burt (1772‑1832) and Lovicy Westcott (1766‑1863). The following year, Wandell first appears as a carver and gilder in the Philadelphia directory at 2 North Alley Street, and subsequent directories show a progressively prospering business. By 1840 he had purchased a residence at 149 North Fourth Street, and his business was located on High (now Market) Street. His business grew and moved northward as the city itself expanded, relocating to Callowhill Avenue (and including furniture) in 1846 and to Girard Avenue in 1851. He joined his son John Wandell, Jr. (1827‑1864) in a cloth business on South Second Street in 1852, ultimately retiring from both businesses in 1859 and moving to Chelten Avenue in Germantown, where he died on October 8, 1868. He, his wife and several children are buried in Laurel Hill Cemetery in Philadelphia. The last of his seven children, Elizabeth Burt Wandell (Mrs. William M.) David, died in 1911. 916 Attributed to Henry Inman (American, 1801‑1846) “Portrait of President William Henry Harrison (1773‑1841)” oil on canvas unsigned.

Burns (b. 1779)", 1824 oil on canvas according to typewritten note en verso “Prior to relining, dated and inscribed to Wm. J. Burns Esq. My savior in New Orleans - J. Neagle 1824”. In an antique giltwood frame. 30” x 25”, framed 37” x 32” Provenance: Collection of Gretchen and Alonzo Lansford, former director Delgado Museum of Art, 1948‑1957 (now New Orleans Museum of Art); Neal Auction Company, June 11, 2005, lot 569; Estate of Dr. Carroll Ball, Jackson, Mississippi. Literature: [Thomas Fitzgerald], “John Neagle, the Artist”, in Lippincott’s Magazine, Vol. 1, No. 5, May 1868, Philadelphia. William Dunlap, History of the Rise and Progress of the Arts of Design in the United States (New York: G.P. Scott & Co., 1834), v. II, pp. 372‑377. $2,000‑$4,000 While the identity of William J. Burns of Frankfort, Kentucky remains elusive, the circumstances of Neagle’s portrait of him is well-documented. William Dunlap’s 1834 History of the Rise and Progress of the Arts of Design in the United States includes a biography Neagle peppered with anecdotes from the artist himself, who assisted Dunlap with the work, providing much information on Neagle’s mentors, Gilbert Stuart and Thomas Sully. Dunlap records Neagle’s ill-fated journeyman trip to Lexington, Kentucky in 1818, where he was dumbfounded to find a very accomplished portraitist Matthew Harris Jouett (1788‑1827) - already in residence.

326

He decided to travel downriver to New Orleans, but was depleted of finances. Says Dunlap: “The young painter in this dilemma was accosted by one who had known him in Philadelphia, and finding that he was awkwardly situated, frankly offered him assistance. The offer of the loan of a few dollars was accepted, and the youth once more afloat, was wafted with the current towards the great commercial emporium of the west.” In a footnote, he adds: “The name of this friend was Burn, and the painter afterward presented him with his portrait, probably of $100 price, for the three dollars then lent him”. In 1868, two years after Neagle’s death, Philadelphia-based Lippincott’s magazine published a lengthy memorial of the artist by Thomas Fitzgerald, and it adds much color to the meeting between Neagle and Burns: While waiting for the stage [at Frankfort] he was accosted by a townsman named Joseph Burns, saying: “Is this not John Neagle, of Philadelphia?” “My name is Neagle, sir,” was the reply. “Which way are you going?” asked Burns. “I hardly know,” said Neagle; “but I had some thought of trying to make my way to New Orleans.” “God bless you! I am going the same way. Meeting a man from Philadelphia is like meeting a friend. We will go together!” Fitzgerald recounts the rest of Neagle’s voyage with the flamboyant, avuncular Burns (“Cheer up, my boy, for I am loaded with money!”), noting that the latter was annoyed when Neagle sold some of his wardrobe to the ship’s captain and that “on their arrival in New Orleans, Burns procured a dozen portraits for Neagle to paint”.

The typed note on the back of this portrait identifies the sitter as “an unidentified member of the Bisland/Lambdin/Sessums family of Edgewood Plantation near Natchez”, and notes that the portrait was “obtained from a Mrs. Powers (a Sessums) of Vidalia [Louisiana]” 921 Attributed to James Reid Lambdin (American, 1807‑1889) “Portrait of a Woman, Possibly Jane McClary Bisland (18221824), Member of Bisland, Lambdin and Sessums Families of Edgewood Plantation, Natchez, Mississippi” oil on canvas unsigned, typewritten label identifying artist, sitter and provenance, and “Ford’s Gallery, Jackson, Mississippi” label en verso. In a modern frame with period interior oval aperture. 30” x 24”, framed 37” x 31‑1/2” Provenance: Descended in the family of sitter; Estate of Dr. Carroll Ball, Jackson, Mississippi, through Guercio’s Antiques, Natchez, Mississippi, 1989. Literature: Patti Carr Black, Art in Mississippi 1720‑1980 (Jackson, MS: University Press of Mississippi, 1998) pp. 50‑52. Ruth Irwin Weldner, The Lambdins of Philadelphia (Philadelphia: Schwarz Gallery, 2002). $1,000‑$1,500

The artist James Reid Lambdin’s connection to Edgewood was very close indeed; the Greek Revival plantation house was built by his brother Samuel Hopkins Lambdin (1811‑1902) in 1859/60. James Lambdin had received an invitation from Anne Dunbar (Mrs. Samuel) Postlethwaite to make a professional visit to Natchez in 1830 (owing in part to the promotions of John J. Audubon, who briefly shared a studio with Lambdin in Pittsburgh), and he painted there from late December 1830 until May 1831. His brother Samuel, who had worked as commander of the steamboat Ohioan, settled in Natchez in 1835, becoming a partner in the plantation supply business Lambdin & Bennett. James Lambdin continued to visit his brother in Natchez, executing portraits for several prominent families including the Bislands, Beltzhoovers and Stantons. It is likely, then, that the sitter is Samuel Hopkins Lambdin’s wife, Jane McClary Bisland (1822‑1894). The young woman’s dress and cascading crimped curls point to a mid-1840s date, and the prominent wedding band on her left hand suggests a newlywed; Jane McClary Bisland (daughter William and Mary Witherspoon Bisland) married Samuel Lambdin in Natchez on January 5, 1842, when she was 19. The Mrs. “Sessums/ Powers” of Vidalia has not been identified, but it is to be noted that there is an Elizabeth Power (nee Sessions) of Vidalia who is a direct descendant of Samuel and Jane Bisland Lambdin through their daughter Louise Lambdin (Mrs. Louis) Winston.

925 Bronze Dore George Washington Allegorical Mantel Clock ca. 1815‑1830, Paris, the case with an enamel dial, flanked by a standing figure of George Washington grasping his sword in one hand, a scroll in the other, the case surmounted by an eagle modeled after the one on the “Great Seal of the United States”, the period silk thread suspension now converted to the later steel spring suspension. h. 12‑1/2”, w. 8‑3/4”, d. 4‑1/2” Provenance: By family repute, the clock was acquired by Indiana farmer and War of 1812 veteran William A. Hart (1789‑1858); his son, Samuel McHenry Hart (1816‑1898), who is interred in Magnolia Cemetery, Baton Rouge, Louisiana; his son Robert A. Hart (1858‑1939), who became a land developer and eventual mayor of Baton Rouge. In 1904, Hart purchased the French Creole house Magnolia Mound, now a house museum maintained by the city of Baton Rouge; Magnolia Mound, along with its contents (including the clock) was sold in 1929 to Hart’s niece Marie Blanche Duncan (1876‑1958); the clock descended to her cousin Anna Belle Hart (Mrs. John T.) Anderson (1907‑1996); her nephew Winder Hart Dunbar (1930‑2015); Private collection, Baton Rouge, Louisiana. $15,000‑$25,000 925

The present clock, after a design by Parisian bronzier Jacques Nicolas-Pierre-Francois Dubuc, is part of a group of commemorative clocks created for the American market that celebrated the new republic and the recent conclusion of the War of 1812. An 1815 letter from Dubuc to an American discussed his intention to produce these clocks in two sizes. There are a number of variations of the Dubuc clock, most of which are either approximately 15” or 20” high (both are larger than the present clock). The figure of Washington is based on John Trumbull’s 1792 painting, “Washington Before the Battle of Trenton”. The banner declaring “First in War, First in Peace, First in the Hearts of his Countrymen”, and the eagle perched atop the works, appear to be common elements to all. Examples of this smaller-scaled clock rarely surface. Period correspondence by Dubuc indicates that his intention was to make this clock in two sizes. It is unclear whether this third, smaller clock is a later form by Dubuc, or the work of a competing bronzier, who sought to capitalize on the success

of the model. Similar examples to the present clock are, or have been, in the collections of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York; the Chrysler Museum, New York, and The White House, Washington, D.C. Examples of the larger forms are conserved by several institutions, including the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York; Winterthur Museum, Delaware; White House, Washington, D.C.; and the U.S. Department of State DiplomaticReception Rooms, Washington, D.C.

The majority of this extraordinary collection of portrait silhouettes and miniatures was selectively culled over several decades for Dr. Ball by two of the most prominent dealers in the genre- Peggy McClard in Houston, Texas, and Hanes and Ruskin in Olde Lyme, Connecticut. Even more importantly, most of the silhouettes by Auguste Edouart offered here were from the artist’s personal collection that was salvaged from the wreckage of his ship the Oneida after it sunk off the island of Guernsey in 1849. Auguste Edouart, a French émigré, sought refuge in England following the French Revolution, where he began his career as a “hair picturist”, snipping and braiding elaborate lockets of hair into mourning portraits and art. His versatility with scissors, by happenstance, led him to silhouettes after he won a heated debate with a friend that mechanically cut silhouettes were not more effective than hand-cut ones. To prove his point, he cut a portrait with crisp precision and extraordinary likeness in under two minutes, earning him his first commission of its kind. Edouart’s silhouettes were so exact, even down to the hair-style and cutout white of the gentlemen’s collars, Edouart rarely embellished them with chalk, gouache or gold as many less accomplished silhouettists did. Some silhouettes were on plain white card, more elaborate ones appeared on lithographic interiors; the rarest and most valuable of all were placed on fine sepia inkwash backgrounds Edouart painted in situ. Over the next twenty-four years, he cut thousands of silhouettes in the U.K. and the U.S., earning him the reputation as one of the most accomplished silhouette artists of his time. Ten of these prolific years were spent in the U.S., capturing the physiognomy and fashion of the most important politicians, socialites and entrepreneurs of the time, including six former presidents, Henry Wadsworth Longfellow and Madame Jumel- whose portrait miniature, along with her ex-husband’s (Aaron Burr), is offered at sale in one of the succeeding lots. Though Edouart worked mostly in Pennsylvania, Massachusetts and New York, he traveled south to Kentucky and Louisiana. When Edouart cut a silhouette, he doubled the paper, creating a copy for his own collection, which he then placed on card. On the backs of each, he typically dated and localized the work, and often wrote the sitters’ names. By the time he left America in 1849 on the ill-fated Oneida bound for England, his work filled twenty-one folios, many of which contained several hundred silhouettes. Much of his lifetime work was lost with the ship. Numerous folios were rescued, though badly damaged by water. Devastated, Edouart gave them to the Lukis family with whom he resided and convalesced after the shipwreck. Years later in 1911, Mrs. F. Nevill (Emily) Jackson placed an advertisement in a London paper seeking silhouettes for research. The Lukis family sold her sixteen of the folios. Jackson meticulously photographed and indexed the albums, and restored them. She removed the black paper cut-outs from the damaged cards, pressed them and placed them on new cards. Since Edouart listed the sitters’ names and dates and locations on the backs of his silhouettes, Jackson cut holes (called keyholes) in the new cards so Edouart’s descriptions could be seen. When possible, she also cut the description from the bottom of the original page/card and pasted them to the bottom of the new ones. The American folios, which comprised six of the sixteen Mrs. Jackson acquired from the Lukis family, were purchased by the New York dealer Arthur S. Vernay, who broke up the folios and matted and framed them with double glass frames. Vernay sold the majority of them in a three week sale in 1913. The rest were dispersed over time. Additional American folios were gifted to the Metropolitan Museum in New York and the National Portrait Gallery in Washington, D.C.; and Mrs. Jackson donated some of the British folios to museums in the U.K.

Born in Yorkshire, England, “Doctor” John Clarke immigrated to the United States as a young child shortly after the American Revolution. An entrepreneur by nature, Clarke is credited with inventing the first soda fountain in New York City in 1819. He is, however, best known as the father of bottled spring water, and one of the pioneering developers of Saratoga Springs, New York. In 1823, he purchased the Congress Spring in Saratoga Springs, developed the Park around it, transforming the swamp into a safe and equitable public space. In 1826, Clarke partnered with fellow New York businessman Thomas Lynch to bottle and mass produce the mineral water. “Lynch and Clarke” water, which became “John Clarke” after Lynch’s death in 1833, was immensely successful with distribution throughout the United States and Europe. Clarke relocated to Saratoga Springs ca. 1828 to better oversee the company’s burgeoning production, and quickly recognized the city’s tourism potential. In addition to bottled water, he implemented the first waterworks system and co-founded the Saratoga and Schenectady Railroad in 1832. Clarke purchased extensive tracts of land throughout the town and surrounding county (much of which is now Skidmore College), and planned Circular Street, where he erected the famous Greek Revival Clarke Mansion, built by John Hodgman in 1830-1832. Clarke married Eliza Bryar White, the widow of New York

attorney Charles White, in 1829. In addition to Eliza’s four children (William, Mary, Charles and Louisa), the couple had three children (Eliza, Thomas and George). Though none of the elder children are known to have married into the Putnam-Andrews family, Clarke had several business ventures with the family. Ferdinand Andrews was a grocer/publisher with ties to Saratoga Springs and Boston; he thus likely supplied and marketed the bottle mineral water. Clarke would have been more directly engaged with the family of Andrews’ wife- Nancy Putnam. The Putnams (Nancy’s father Gideon and brother Rockwell) were among the first developers of the Saratoga Springs. They designed the city around the three springs, and “tubed” them for public use; they built Congress Hall Hotel, and they jointly invested in the springs and railroad with Clarke. Individual silhouette portraits of John Clarke and Ferdinand Andrews are conserved at the Metropolitan Museum. Portraits of Clarke/White and Andrews family are listed in Mrs. F. Nevill Jackson’s index of Edouart’s work, even though she did not register/indicate, which were group portraits. In addition to this silhouette, with the parlor depicted in the background, at least one other Clarke family portrait with a sepia/inkwash background of a drawing room in Circular Mansion, was cut by Auguste Edouart in 1840, and sold for $18,960 at James D. Julia Auction, August 24-26, 2016, as lot 2160.

$1,000‑$1,500 Achilles Tallman (sometimes Taulman) was born in New York City on August 18, 1808, the son of Harmanus Tallman (1772‑1826) and Ann Coleman (1774‑1864), and was baptised two months later on October 2 at the Reformed Dutch Church on Sugar Loaf Street. Nothing is known of his education or career, other than he is listed as a watchmaker on Fulton Street from 1829 to 1833. He was likely then the retailer of this set rather than its maker, though it does bear his rare mark. He never married, but was perhaps endeavored to that goal given his sponsorship of two separate Civic Balls on New Year’s Eve 1830 and February 11, 1831 as advertised in the New York Evening Post (“Dancing to commence at 8 o’clock precisely”). He died at the very young age of 25 on January 22, 1834 and is buried in the family plot at Snyder Cemetery, Valley Cottage, Rockland County New York.

Framed. 23‑1/2” x 20‑1/4”, framed 52‑1/4” x 44‑3/4” Provenance: J. Engle Negus, Esq., Philadelphia, Pennsylvania; by descent in family; Estate of Dr. Carroll Ball, Jackson, Mississippi. $7,000‑$10,000 The sitters, both named Susan Engle Negus, are the mother and daughter of James Engle Negus (1809‑1884) of Philadelphia and Somerset, New Jersey. His mother was born Susan Engle in Philadelphia on June 18, 1789, the daughter of patriot, lawyer and later Speaker of the Pennsylvania House James Engle (1757‑1821) and his wife Margaret Adam (1760‑1821). She married tavern keeper John Negus (1784‑1823) in 1808, and their son James was born in Philadelphia on June 2, 1809. He became a prosperous merchant and chief weigh-clerk at the U.S. Mint in Philadelphia, and married Isabella Van Syckel (1814‑1892) of Mercer County New Jersey in 1835. Their first daughter Susan Engle Negus, named after her grandmother, was born on November 3, 1840 in Philadelphia and baptized there on April 7, 1841 at the Tenth Presbyterian Church. (At the time of this portrait in 1851, grandmother Susan E. Negus would have been 62 and granddaughter Susan 11.) In June of 1854, James Engle Negus was exposed with uncharacteristic and inexplicable short-weighting at the Mint and, when confronted, confessed to the depredation of $14,000 in gold. He made full and immediate restitution and moved with his family to Bound Brook, Somerset County New Jersey, where he eventually became a rehabilitated and respected country gentleman. His mother died there on February 22, 1879, and he on August 17, 1884. Susan Engle Negus the younger never married but traveled extensively and was active in both the Daughters of the American Revolution and the Mayflower Society. She died on July 16, 1915 in Atlantic City. She, her father, and her grandmother are all buried in Woodlands Cemetery in Philadelphia.

New York provisioner Harrison Jones was born around 1818 in Connecticut (or New York - accounts differ) and on September 9, 1846 married Susan Matilda Constant at the Reformed Church of Cortlandtown in Montrose, Westchester county New York. She was born on April 22, 1828 in Peekskill, the daughter of Lewis Constant and Eliza Nelson, later of Caldwell’s Landing, Rockwell county, New York. The couple had four children, three of whom survived into adulthood. Sadly, Harrison Jones died on March 20, 1854 while on a business trip to Jacksonville, Florida. Susan Constant Jones never remarried, and lived in Westchester county until about 1880, when she and her children moved to Greenfield, Massachusetts. She died there on August 1, 1899; she and her husband are both buried in Green-Wood Cemetery in Brooklyn, New York. Her two sons Harrison Jones, Jr. (1849‑1935) and Albert W. Jones (1853‑1929) were prominent stationers in Greenfield; they retired and sold their stationery company in 1922. They, nor their sister Florence L. Jones (1851‑1913), ever married or had children.

1009 Hermann Ottomar Herzog (German/American, 1832‑1932) “Droving the Herd at Sunset”, 1878 oil on canvas signed and dated lower right, faintly dated on effaced brass artist plaque, frame backing with antique “Kane’s, Philadelphia” label. Presented in a giltwood frame. 16” x 24”, framed 25‑5/8” x 33‑5/8” Provenance: Private collection, New Jersey. $20,000‑$40,000 Hermann Herzog’s epic landscapes, accentuated by dramatic lighting, captivated the imagination of 19th- and 20th-century collectors, because the artist depicted the rugged Alps and vast rivers and plains of the American wilderness through the rosy-tinted lens of “romantic pantheism.” For Herzog, the landscape was a sublime experience; it was a reflection of God’s creation that simultaneously awed and terrified people, and it was a medium for spiritual transcendence that both sanctioned and abated manifest destiny. In the 1870s, Herzog’s ethereal tonalist views of American pastorals and the precipices of the uncharted West provided an escapist reprieve from the war-torn East.

362

In this painting, the low horizon and immense sky that engulf more than half the picture plane in a haze of pink cause the last rays of light to naturally blur into an atmospheric perspective that only Herzog, an accomplished Barbizon/Hudson River School artist, could truly capture through the bravura of reverse lighting - where the landscape is ethereally lit from behind, casting the foreground into warm shadows. Nowhere is this stunning effect better visualized than in the silhouettes of the cattle, the ashen roiling clouds and umber trees. As The Philadelphia Press lauded his work: “His faculty of choosing the most effective illumination... assisted by the rapidity of execution which enables him to seize and fetter the most transient phenomena of light and shade - of clouds that pass and of water - amount to genius and make his pictures unique among landscapes.” References: Illustrated Catalogue of Paintings, Works of Hermann Herzog to Be sold by Auction.

2. Before the Auction (a). ALL SALES ARE “AS IS, WHERE IS” WITH NO EXPRESS OR IMPLIED WARRANTIES WHATSOEVER.

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. 01/04/17


(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.

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. 01/04/17


(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.

4. After the Auction (a). In order to consummate and complete the Sale, the Buyer must tender payment in full of all of the following amounts (all such amounts together being the “Purchase Price”) to NOAG: (i) the Hammer Price; and (ii) the “Buyer’s Premium” consisting of a premium of 25% of the Hammer Price (discounted to 22% if the method of payment is by check, cash, or wire transfer [subject to a $30 fee for domestic wires and a $60 fee for international wires] by the end of the day on the fifteenth calendar day following the conclusion of the Auction - note that there is no discount for LiveAuctioneers and Invaluable bidders) up to and including a Hammer Price of $200,000 and 10% of the amount by which the Lot’s Hammer Price exceeds $200,000; and (iii) Any applicable Louisiana, state, local, and federal or other taxes, calculated as required by law. Any documentation of tax exemption must be provided by the Bidder contemporaneously with the execution of the attached registration form. (b). Payment and passing of title. The Buyer and any other Bidders are responsible for contacting NOAG for Auction results during the week after the conclusion of the Auction. Subject to the provisions of Section 4(i) below which may require earlier payment, the Buyer must pay the full Purchase Price no later than 4:30 pm central time on the fifteenth calendar day following the conclusion of the Auction. Payments may be submitted during business hours to: New Orleans Auction Galleries, 333 St. Joseph Street, New Orleans, Louisiana 70130, Telephone number: 504-566-1849. Payments may be made by certified check, cash, wire transfer, or credit card (Visa, Mastercard, and American Express). Payments will be accepted by non-certified check only in NOAG’s sole discretion, from Buyers that have been qualified by NOAG in NOAG’s sole discretion. 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. 01/04/17


(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.
