LETTER FROM THE CEO

As I sit here considering all I want to share with you in this letter, a single ray of sunlight beaming through the nearby window has slowly drifted across my desk as the harsh winter blues are finally giving way to a softer, golden light. The azalea bushes in view are tipped in masses of tiny white buds, as though competing to burst with the most blooms. These telltale hints of spring signal a chance for a welcomed fresh start, inspiring me to begin a new design project. Or two. And thus, fortunately for lovers of the interior arts like you and me, the season is also heralded by one of the most exciting weeks of the year: Paper City’s Texas Design Week, March 23 through 30. New Orleans Auction Galleries is so pleased (read: wildly excited!) to be the presenting sponsor for this Houston-based event. Design Week will feature a series of talks by noted industry rock stars, including San Francisco designer, author and Elle Decor A-lister Jay Jeffers; Sheila Bridges; Miguel Flores-Vianna; Lisa Fine; Ray Booth; India Hicks; Architectural Digest’s Mitchell Owens; David Kleinberg; Houston’s own J. Randall Powers and more. We not only invite you to attend, we encourage you to check out Design in Bloom, presented by Flower Magazine, at the Houston Design Center on Tuesday, March 24. And our friends at Tenenbaum Jewelers are hosting The Art of the Book Deal panel discussion, on Friday, March 27, at their beautiful showroom on Westheimer Road. And, we especially hope you will join NOAG as we host Ken Fulk, the dapper San Franciscan whose bicoastal firm juggles commercial with residential design, and counts rap star Pharrell Williams, entrepreneur Sean Parker and fashion designer Veronica Beard among his clients, on Friday, March 27. Mr. Fulk will be speaking and signing his book, Mr. Ken Fulk’s Magical World. Please check TexasDesignWeek.com for the schedule of events and speakers, as well as to register for events. Of course, the season also brings NOAG’s Spring Auction, Saturday, March 28, 10 a.m., and Sunday, March 29, 10 a.m. We will be featuring a large and important painting by George Rodrigue from the Xerox series, “Home Office Blues,” created in 2000 to introduce the printer in a homeoffice setting. The unique advertising campaign catapulted our beloved Blue Dog to international recognition.

We are also pleased to present property from the estate of John S. Samuels III of Galveston. I invite you to read in the following featured property pages about Samuels’ remarkable life and his involvement in the arts. The sale also includes property from the estate of Elaine Levy Proler of Houston; the estate of Hurley Wayne Gray of Houston; and the estate of Russell C. Klein, M.D. and Donna Guinn Klein of New Orleans. For our art lovers, we are featuring an impressive selection of fine art, including works by Wolf Kahn, William Henry Kemble Yarrow, Maximilien Luce, Edmund Charles Tarbell, Ashley Longshore and more. Feeling like sprucing up your wardrobe this spring, too? Check out our selection of handbags, from designers including Hermes, Prada, Chanel and Louis Vuitton. Dear Easter Bunny, I have been a very good girl so far this year... You’ll find we are feeling inspired by the beauty of a new season and the excitement of Texas Design Week. So please join us for our perfectly timed and designed preview party on Thursday, March 26, 4 to 6 p.m. We are sure you will find something that will bring a fresh, renewed brightness to your own design project! See you there!

Paintings from Frances Aronson Fine Art Atlanta, Georgia

Frances Aronson was born November 30, 1933 in Lucedale, Mississippi. She attended the University of Southern Mississippi and the Atlanta College of Art. In 1968, Frances Aronson established The Midtown Gallery on Atlanta's Peachtree Street, now a major, international center for fine art. Her gallery's early shows included a grand Picasso exhibition and a memorable Jim Dine retrospective, which Dine attended. One of the major pieces in that exhibition, “Hit My Summer Hard and Fast”, is now part of the permanent collection at the High Museum of Art. In later years, the gallery was relocated to Buckhead where it continued to thrive as Frances Aronson Fine Art; attracting collectors from all over the world seeking notable impressionist works including Renoir, Monet and Corot, and lesser known post-impressionists whose work Frances championed and brought to collectors' attention. In particular, Frances held a great love for the painters of the Barbizon School. Pictured Left: Lot 389

Aronson was beloved by fellow dealers and collectors. One dealer referred to Frances as, “a loving and devoted steward of fine art.” A long-time collector described Frances as, “a revolutionary who lifted the art scene in Atlanta to a whole new level.” Frances served on the Board of Trustees of the Georgia Museum of Art and supported numerous local charities and non-profit organizations. She was a highly respected and much sought-after Certified Senior Appraiser with the American Society of Appraisers for many years, appraising works of art for museums and collectors. New Orleans Auction Galleries is pleased to offer paintings from Frances Aronson Fine Art, including works by Narcisse Virgile Diaz de la Pena, Edmund Charles Tarbell, Martha Walter, William Henry Kemble Yarrow and others.

“The Blind Leading the Blind”, an ancient idiom referenced in the Bible, was a popular motif depicted in Protestant 16th-century art that privileged proverbs and landscapes over forbidden religious icons. One of the last paintings Bruegel painted was of this subject, cleverly combining various types of eye afflictions on a motley crew of blokes trudging alongside a Dutch canal, the diagonal composition as off-kilter as the blind procession itself. The juxtaposition of the scurrilous leader grounded in a ditch with the Roman Catholic church of St. Anna in the background is often read as political mockery of the Spanish Netherlands government, which issued mass arrests and executions of Protestants through the brutal edict, the Council of Troubles (1567). Bruegel’s interpretation of the “Blind Leading the Blind” has inspired numerous period and 19th-century copies; his son, Bruegel the Younger, painted a larger copy; Charles Baudelaire and William Carlos Williams reference it in their poems, and Godfried Guffens, a prominent member of the Nazarene movement (German Romantic painters with a predilection for Christian art), also pays tribute to the master and fellow Protestant in the depiction offered here.

Provenance: Private collection, Chicago, Illinois. Literature: de Lapinay, Francois Mace, IIl Sassoferrato: La Devota Bellezza: con i disegni della Collezione Reale Britannica (Milan: Silvana Editoriale, 2017), no. 46. $3,000-$5,000 Giovanni Battista Salvi, known as the Sassoferrato after the small town from which he came bearing the same name, was an Italian Baroque painter, who trained under Domenichino, a Bolognese master and apprentice to Annibale Carracci. Sassoferrato carved a lucrative niche under the cloak of the Counter Reformation that advocated personal devotional imagery to counter the Protestant iconoclasts. Under the Jesuits, Catholic imagery had to be bold, dramatic, inviting and as personally meaningful as the newly translated Bible, mass published for individual worship. To draw the wayward back to the faith, the image had to meet the word, and beauty and divinity were paramount; beauty so surreal it invoked the mysteries of faith or a revelation, and Mary was the image par excellence of piety and motherhood. Sassoferrato capitalized on this demand, creating numerous variations of Mary in prayer that invoke the young mother on the eve or aftermath of the Annunciation or Visitation. Here Mary is caught in a quiet interlude, vulnerable and mortal, yet divine in her secular beauty. Rendered through the masterful modeling of High Renaissance color and shadow, she becomes a veritable visual aid through which the mysteries of the rosaries are prayed. This depiction, particularly popular among Sassoferrato's patrons and followers, was painted by the artist and his studio well into the early 1700s. As Pope John Paul II wrote in an April 4, 1999 letter to artists regarding Sassoferrato and past masters, "To all who are dedicated to the search for new epiphanies of beauty so that through their creative works as artists they may offer these gifts to the world - seem to live again in them."

Giovanni-Battista Torriglia, sometimes referred to as an Italian Vermeer, is best known for his domestic interiors rendered in vibrant color harmony offset and dramatically lit (chiaroscuro) through the use of windows. His paintings, however, romanticize scenes of daily life- ironing, knitting, family members gathered in groups tending to children or food preparation are imbued with the same classical beauty that his earlier religious and historical subjects were.

Matted, glazed and framed. 11-1/8” x 8”, framed 13-3/8” x 10-1/4” $1,200-$1,800 The charming and dashing Wriotheseley was initially a favorite at the Court of Elizabeth I before earning the Queen’s wrath by entering into a secret marriage with one of her maids of honor - an act the queen deemed dishonorable and disrespectable (though jealousy may have had a role in her reaction). He was briefly interred in the notorious Fleet Prison, as was his pregnant wife, a harsh punishment that afforded him time to reflect upon the dangers of earning the queen’s displeasure. Upon his release he somewhat foolishly joined forces with Robert Devereaux, Lord Essex in the latter’s ill-fated rebellion against Queen Elizabeth. Banished to the Tower of London, he was sentenced to death for his role in the treasonous act but the penalty was eventually commuted to life imprisonment. It was not until James I ascended the throne that he was freed, and once again immersed himself in the intrigues of court life, eventually being named a Knight of the Most Noble Order of the Garter. Wriotheseley was a vocal champion of the arts, and was most notably a patron of William Shakespeare; the narrative poems Venus and Adonis and The Rape of Lucrece were dedicated to him.

Framed. 30” x 25-1/2”, framed 39” x 33-1/2” Provenance: Vose Galleries, Boston, Massachusetts; Skinner, Boston, Massachusetts, September 24, 2010, lot 599; Frances Aronson Fine Art, Atlanta, Georgia. $50,000-$80,000

Edmund Tarbell, one of the most important American Impressionist painters and leading member of the Boston School of Art, began incorporating family members and horses in his paintings in 1892, creating a unique blend of genteel plein-air scenes of domesticity with portraiture and sporting art. Over the next several decades, his family would become an integral part of his oeuvre; they were interchangeably subjects proper and models for other equestrian scenes. His famous painting "Girl with Horse" (1892), exhibited in the World's Columbian Exposition in Chicago, features Emmeline (Emmie), his wife, as the dashing woman a la mode in the stripped dress. His son Edmund, Jr. and later grandson by the same name appear numerous times on horseback throughout the first quarter of the 20th century. In "Going for a Ride", the three younger Tarbell children serve as models, painted after a photograph with a young girl, presumably his youngest daughter, Mary, on horseback at the family's home in Newcastle, New Hampshire with the iconic white picket fence and snippet of the sea in the background. In the painting, Mercie, his second daughter, is added seated in the family doorway and Edmund, Jr. also appears on horseback. In 1911, Tarbell paints another portrait "My Children in the Woods" with horses.

Between 1895-1896, Tarbell created several paintings and pastels of his eldest daughter Josephine (b. 1890), who would become one of his most prominent models into early adulthood before she married Robert White Ferrell. Josephine is depicted beside her mother "Josephine and Her Mother" (1896), and as the model for two other period works, a pastel and a painting, respectively titled "Child and Horse" and "Child with Horse/Child Grooming Horse". In the catalogue raisonne compiled by Patricia Pierce in 1980, there was a third painting of Josephine with a horse painted, "Josephine on Pony" (1895), but it is not pictured. This painting is also registered by the Smithsonian Art Inventory Catalog (also not pictured), but bearing the same measurements as the painting offered here. Where is it now? The last know location in 1980 was in the private collection of Mr. and Mrs. A. Cannon - the granddaughter of Josephine Tarbell. Mary Joseph Ferrell (1919-1998) married Dr. Albert Cannon (1921-2015) in 1943. The marriage later dissolved and Dr. Cannon remarried in 1991. According to museum and auction record archives, the Cannons gifted and/or sold works from their collection in the late 1970s and 1980s. Was this one of them? Are we indeed looking at "Josephine on Her Pony" with a similar white voile pleated cotton dress and small brown mare as seen in "Girl Grooming Her Horse"? The age, date and features of Josephine as a young child of five or six years are strikingly consistent with other period paintings of her and photographs conserved in the Papers of Edmund C. Tarbell at the Smithsonian. Most notable of all - the measurement none of the other Tarbell paintings of children with horses are consistent with these.

Gloucester, Massachusetts, home to the oldest operating art colony in America, and home to some of the most iconic American Impressionists and Modernists from Winslow Homer and Mark Rothko, was also the residence of one of the most prominent women artists in the early 20th century - Martha Walter. A protege of William Merritt Chase at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts, Walter went on to win numerous awards, including the coveted Cresson Traveling Scholarship that enabled her to work throughout Europe and North Africa for two years. In Paris, she studied at the prestigious Grand Chaumiere and the Academie Julian under the direction of Rene Menard and Lucien Simon, but abandoned the restraints of academia, opening, instead, her own studio in Paris, a women artists collaborative, dedicated to plein-air studies influenced by the Impressionists and Post-Impressionists. The sun-drenched vistas Walter encountered in Southern France and in the French colonies of Algeria and Tunisia through the works of Boudin and Matisse drew her to the harbors and beaches of Gloucester upon her return to the United States. In 1913, she joined the Gloucester Plein-Air Art Colony and opened a studio in the General Store on Rocky Neck that she maintained for more than two decades. Together with fellow residents Winslow Homer, Childe Hassam, Milton Avery and Frank Duveneck, Walter helped create a distinct genre of American Impressionism, referred to as the Cape Ann style. As art historian William Gerdts noted, “it was in Gloucester that her work began to embody to the fullest the strategic qualities of Impressionism” through her use of bold, bright colors against cool grounds to accentuate central figures or compositions of beach scenes or still-lifes, as evidenced here in the bouquet of flowers offset by the lull of the harbor waves in her rear studio window framed in blue.

As an emerging artist in the mid-20th century, Wolf Kahn became well acquainted with a talented group of young artists working and living in New York City. Among Kahn’s friends was artist Reuben Kadish. Kadish made the decision to leave New York City and moved his family to a farm in Vernon, New Jersey. Even though Kadish interests turned to dairy farming, but he maintained close ties to his fellow artists and hosted Jackson Pollack, Philip Guston, Mark Rothko, William de Kooning and Wolf Kahn at his rural farm. During a visit in 1979, Kahn painted the Kadish house as a memory of his visit

As a young man, he had experimented with molding and casting while attending the Technical High School in Providence, and he soon found himself moving away from illustrative work and towards sculpture. In 1940, his work was included in the prestigious “30 American Artists” exhibition at the Montrose Gallery in New York. His first solo exhibition was at the Eggleston Gallery, New York in 1951. Marinsky’s long association with the Fonderia Luigi Tommasi (after 1985, absorbed into the Fonderia d’Arte Massimo del Chiaro) in Pietrasanta, Italy began in 1968. By 1972, Marinsky had settled in the area, where he was to spend the remainder of his life. His slightly abstracted but solid figures reveal an acute knowledge of the human body - likely a remnant of his intensive drawing training - and an understanding of its relationship and interaction with the space it occupies. In this way, he is reminiscent of the great Mexican sculptor Francisco Zuniga. Marinsky was a Fellow of the National Sculptor Society and his work - illustrations and sculptures - are in numerous private and public collections, including a number of paintings conserved at the Hunt Botanical Library at Carnegie-Mellon University in Pittsburgh.

“Home Office Blues”, 2001 acrylic on canvas signed lower left, signed, dated, titled and copyright-marked en verso. Framed. 48” x 36”, framed 59” x 47” $75,000-$125,000 “Home Office Blues” was one of the first paintings in the Rodrigue/Xerox innovative advertising campaign of 2000, and it is the first in the series to be offered at auction. In 1999, George Rodrigue was approached by the famous New York advertising firm of Young and Rubicon on behalf of their client, Xerox. The prominent printing company wanted the artist to create a series of paintings combining the iconic Blue Dog with their new range of home office products. Rodrigue, always careful about accepting merchandising or advertising commissions, initially declined.

The advertising firm, however, was persistent and arranged for a meeting between two of their top agents and Rodrigue at the artist’s Lafayette home. The meeting reminded Rodrigue of his early days in art school when he briefly considered a career in advertising and illustration - he soon agreed to take part in the campaign. Xerox agreed to his condition that he have complete autonomy regarding the images; the firm simply supplied a list of ‘tag”words for his inspiration. The painting is a complex composition rendered in blocks of bold, intense complimentary colors of blues and orange. The Blue Dog sits in an office chair slightly to the right of the canvas, gazing confidently out at the viewer - its image reflected in both the calendar on the wall and the copy from the inkjet printer on the desk. There is an intentional tranquility to the scene, suggestive of the calm and ease of working from home.

As one of the foremost historical schools of Japanese painting, Rinpa school works are recognizable and sought after for their brilliant detail masked by a veil of simplicity. Founded in the 17th century by masters Hon’ami Koetsu and Tawaraya Sotatsu, and consolidated by the brothers Ogata Korin and Ogata Kenzan, the school was previously known as SotatsuKorin, before the term Rinpa was introduced in later years.

896 Exceptional Japanese Six-Panel Folding Screen Edo period, 18th century, Rinpa school, ink and gouache on gold leaf ground, having thirty-five applied open and folded or partially folded fans depicting a range of subjects from Japanese history and cultural traditions, including scenes from the Genji Monogatari, floral sprays and landscapes, cats, monkeys, birds and dragons, all within silk mounts. h. 70”, w. 148”

Typically identifiable by their bold, stylized interpretations of nature against distinctive gold and metallic grounds, Rinpa school works often embody the portrayal of traditional subjects, created with a range of innovative techniques.

Provenance: Estate of Elaine Levy Proler, Houston, Texas; Purchased from Ariane Dandois, Ariane Faye et Cie, Paris, France, November 6, 1983.

The exquisite example offered here encapsulates the extraordinary skill and decorative range of the era, incorporating intricately cut and applied paper fans with an ambitious design harking back to the Momoyama period, with scenes from “Genji Monogatari”, as well as depictions of auspicious animals layered amid landscapes and floral sprays, all carefully applied to a gold-leaf ground. It is this striking river of gold which catches the eye, allowing the screen as a whole to create a portal of warmth and depth, before drawing the viewer in to focus on a subject delicately depicted in one of the open or partially open fans, deliberately placed throughout the composition to create a subtle diagonal division.

Without a national weather service in place, the “Great October Storm” was only first observed on September 27, 1893, in the northwest Caribbean Sea. As the storm moved to the northwest, it quickly strengthened into a hurricane. On the morning of October 2nd, the hurricane struck southeast Louisiana destroying the small fishing community of Cheniere Caminada, west of Grand Isle. After crossing the northern Gulf of Mexico, the hurricane advanced to the Mississippi coast in the evening hours causing considerable damage.

$1,500-$2,500

On October 6th, 1893, The Atlanta Constitution newspaper reported the aftermath of the “Great October Storm”: “At Biloxi nothing escaped the fury of the elements. On every side could be seen the wrecks of boats, piers and bathhouses." Out of more than 100 boats on the front bay little and big, only three rode the storm safely, and the beach is strewn with wrecks of all descriptions. On the back bay only one or two weathered the gale. Not a single wharf is standing on either the front or back bay.”

987

334

A frequent visitor to Biloxi, William Aiken Walker was well acquainted with the coastal community. Walker personally witnessed the storm’s destruction as he traveled by tugboat to New Orleans. He painted the view of the bay just days after the hurricane, where he accurately documented the damaged including an uprooted tree, beached boat on the shore and the remnants of the wharves. The artist also included signs of recovery with a surviving lighthouse and the steamboat and sailing boats in the distance.

1001 Attributed to Caroline Ebert (French/German/American, b. 1812) “Self-Portrait with Probable Student” oil on canvas signed lower right “C. Ebert” on right side of canvas (in painting). Framed. 31-7/8” x 25”, framed 40-3/4” x 33-3/4” $1,500-$2,500 Women in the history of art are rare; even more rare is a record of them, as most were denied access to the academies and exhibitions through which most records were kept. Ebert is listed in the artist indexes for auction records, though she has no known auction records. Caroline Ebert appears in the annals of art by happenstance of yet another record - a U.S. 1860 census record in which she had the aplomb to call herself an artist, two years after she and her two younger children arrived in Ellis Island from Le Havre.

1000

Records indicate Ebert was born around 1812 in the French colony of Trinidad, but returned to France by the time she married a German man, Ottermer Ebert, ca. 1835. Three French-born children followed, Gustavus (1837), Lindente (1839) and Andrew (1846). In the 1860s, Gustavus is registered as a New York engraver and her daughter a teacher. By the time Ebert became a U.S. citizen in 1872, she was still a self-proclaimed artist, but where was her studio, who, aside from this young woman by whom she poses, were her students? No advertisement with her name was found in extant classifieds, but then again would a woman have the temerity or be allowed to advertise a business as a woman at that time? Whichever the answer, now effaced by history, this work indicates that Ebert received training in France; the self-portrait as an artist, deftly drawn and modeled, lacks the naivete of an autodidact. No other “known” artist by the name C. Ebert, of this period, could have produced this painting, but the elusive Caroline Ebert, aforeknown by name alone. 1001

1002 Leon Pomarede (French/New Orleans/St. Louis, 1807-1892) “Probably a Portrait of the Chouteau Family of St. Louis, Possibly Dr. Nicolas N. DeMenil and Emilie-Sophie Chouteau DeMenil”, 1852 oil on canvas signed and dated upper left. Framed. 53-3/4” x 45”, framed 56-1/2” x 48” Literature: John Francis McDermott, "Leon Pomarede, 'Our Parisian Knight of the Ease'" Bulletin of the City Art Museum of St. Louis , 34:1 (Winter 1949): 8-18. $1,200-$1,800 Leon Pomarede, a French emigre, and resident of New Orleans and St. Louis, was one of the most diverse and prolific artists of the 19th century, a virtuoso of all trades who worked grandeur on all scales. He was a portrait miniaturist, but designed immense altar pieces and sculptures for cathedrals at the behest of archbishops, governors and city plutocrats - including the [Old] St. Louis Cathedral, St. Patrick's of New Orleans, and St. Louis University Hall. He designed and painted the funeral processions of President Zachary Taylor, and Vice President and South Carolina statesman J. C. Calhoun. In 1848-49, he created an unprecedented 5,400foot panoramic mural of the Mississippi River in four panels; spanning more than fifteen football fields, it documented its sensational waterways and past from steamboats and flatboats, to buffalo hunts and Indian war dances to the Great Fire of St. Louis. The epic work received wide acclaim and toured throughout the United States. After opening in St. Louis, it was exhibited for two months at the New Orleans Armory Hall before continuing to New York and the east coast where it met its untimely demise in a storage fire in Newark in 1850.

1002

For all of Pomarede's prodigious work, not more than a handful remain today. The large altar triptych at St. Patrick's in New Orleans is one of the few intact murals; another invaluable vestige is his 1832 view of St. Louis painted from the East Bank of the Mississippi. Not only is it one of the oldest depictions of the city, it was also owned by the city's founding family, and probable sitters of the portrait offered here - Emilie-Sophie Chouteau (1813-1874) and her husband Dr. Nicolas DeMenil (1812-1882). The Chouteaus, French colonial/creoles from New Orleans, were magnates in the fur trading industry that first established St. Louis as a major post and later city. Pomarede was well acquainted with the Chouteau family; according to his daughter Pauline, the Chouteau family brought Pomarede to St. Louis from their native New Orleans in the 1830s, and he continued to receive commissions from the French community through their patronage. Emilie, the granddaughter of ReneAuguste Chouteau, Jr., married DeMenil, a prominent Frenchborn doctor in 1836. In 1875, the couple lent their view of the city by Pomarede to Richard Compton to be reproduced as an illustration in the Pictorial St. Louis. Given the family connection, it is quite probable that this portrait is of a Chouteau member. The woman sitter closely resembles the Chouteau women, namely Emilie, as well as her cousin Emilie Pratt. Both sitters bear close resemblance to known portraits of Emilie Chouteau and Nicolas DeMenil, conserved at their home in Benton Park, now a historic museum - the Chatillon-DeMenil Mansion.

1032 Two Aesthetic Brass and Engraved Ruby Glass Hall Lanterns fourth quarter 19th century, American or English, each with a pierced and molded brass frame, the tapering example set with panels probably illustrating scenes from The Sleeping Beauty, after Walter Crane (English, 1845-1915), the rectangular example set with panels of birds and flowers and trimmed with glass “jewels”, each fitted with a chain for raising or lowering. h. 26-1/2”, w. 8”, d. 8” and h. 27”, w. 9”, d. 9” $1,000-$1,500 1033 American Aesthetic Movement Rosewood Cabinet, Attributed to Pottier & Stymus, New York ca. 1880-1882, adorned with mixed metal and wood inlay and shibayama plaques, in two parts, the upper section with a carved gallery over an inlaid floral basket flanked by leaves, vines and flora, over a mirror plate centering cupboard doors and a recessed mirror, all mirror plates with a beveled perimeter with holly leaf, vine and berry etching, the base with a figured onyx top over a projecting band of drawers, with drawers and open niches below, on carved paw feet atop scroll brackets, the cabinet mounted throughout with Meiji shibayama panels depicting common Japonesque motifs executed in silver, gold, mother-of-pearl and enameled inlay, the side panels of the upper and lower cases with raised panels with mixed metal banded inlay. h. 68-1/8”, w. 49”, d. 19-3/4”

1032

$8,000-$12,000 The designer’s decision to employ shibayama plaques, and presumably design a case around them, is illustrative of both the contemporaneous fascination with Japonism as well as the tendency of firms like Pottier & Stymus or Herter Brothers to employ the finest, most costly materials in their commissioned pieces. An art form first introduced to the West at the Paris World Exposition in 1867, its popularity continued to consolidate after the Meiji Restoration of 1868. Many export works containing shibayama designs are associated with Yokohama, after this port city became a destination for craftsmen of the art. However, the panels we see here are more indicative of the smaller, delicate works crafted during the late Edo/early Meiji period, rather than the larger pieces produced out of Yokohama that were often designed to cater to the tastes of the Western market. The cabinet’s production number of 60078 appears in several places on the piece. The sequential numbering system employed by the firm suggests the present cabinet dates to around 1881. The cabinet is also stenciled “photographed” along with the name “Bostwick”. Pottier & Stymus is known to have marked other pieces with that designation, presumably indicating that pictures had been taken of the cabinet for inclusion in the folios of consignor’s pieces in production. (The fate of those folios is unknown.) Jabez Abel Bostwick (1830-1892) was one of John D. Rockefeller’s partners in Standard Oil. One of the eight officers who sat on the Standard Oil Trust, he served as SecretaryTreasurer. The trust controlled about 90% of the oil refining in the country until it was broken up in the early 20th century. Like other principals of Standard Oil including Rockefeller,

352

Wallace C. Andrews and Henry Flagler, Bostwick commissioned the Pottier & Stymus firm for decorating and furniture (1). At least one earlier piece of P & S furniture marked “Bostwick” has surfaced, suggesting the firm provided furnishings for him on more than one occasion. In 1876, Bostwick erected a manse at 800 Fifth Avenue in Manhattan. Given that firms such as Herter Brothers and Pottier & Stymus often took three to four years to fulfill their commissions, the present cabinet was probably designed for the new Fifth Avenue home. (1) The 1893 edition of King’s Handbook of New York City includes an advertisement for Pottier & Stymus in which the firm states that “Among many of the richest and finest private residences in America that have been furnished by this company can be mentioned those of Henry M. Flagler, William Rockefeller, J. A. Bostwick, John D. Archibold, Wallace C. Andrews, Fred T. Steinway and M.C.D. Borden, of New York; George Westinghouse, Jr. of Pittsburgh and Lenox; Robert Pitcairn of Pittsburgh; William Williams, Myron P. Brush and William G. Fargo of Buffalo; Mark Hopkins, Leland Stanford, James Flood, Charles Crocker and Henry Crocker of San Francisco; Mrs. C. H. Strong of Erie, Pennsylvania and Mrs. N. Willis of Galveston, Texas”.

“O’Christ of the seven wounds, Who look’dst through the dark, To the face of Thy mother! consider, I pray, How we common mothers stand desolate, mark, Whose sons, not being Christ’s, die with eyes turned away, And no last word to say!” Elizabeth Browning’s poem on a mother’s suffering written during the Italian War of Independence, as quoted in the closing lines of the Boston Globe article written about this painting. Professor Giosue De Benedictis embodied the American dream and rallied the patriotism of his new nation throughout World War I and later World War II, creating several paintings and murals for the support and morale of the war effort. In 1917, he painted this lot, “For His Flag and Country”, dedicated to the wives and mothers of the soldiers, and displayed it throughout the month of May in honor of Mother’s Day. In 1919, he executed a panoramic mural of the Battle of Vittorio Veneto dedicated to the Italian General Armando Diaz to commemorate the victory of the decisive battle that ended the Great War in Italy and led to the surrender of the AustroHungarian Empire a week later. As an elderly man during World War II, he corralled morale once again with patriotic works like “In Flanders Fields”.

Framed. 16” x 12”, framed 22-3/4” x 18-3/4” $5,000-$8,000 Initially exhibiting in 1890 at the Artists’ Association of New Orleans, the accomplished artist Helen Maria Turner went on to earn national acclaim by exhibiting at Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts, Corcoran Gallery, and American Society of Miniature Painters at the National Academy of Design. Turner was the first woman from the south to be elected to full membership in the National Academy of Design, and the third woman nationally. A highlight of her career was included in the “Six American Women” exhibition organized by the St. Louis City Museum; which, in addition to Turner, featured Mary Cassatt, Jane Peterson, Johanna Hailman, Martha Walter and Alice Schille. At a time when few women achieved success as professional artists, Turner became well acquainted and friends with her female contemporaries. Although she occasionally accepted a commissioned portrait assignment, Turner largely asked her friends and family to be subjects of her paintings. The portrait of “The Artist” was likely a friend of Turner’s; painted with her brushes in hand and typically pensive glaze favored by Turner.

In 2013, the Gettysburg Anniversary Committee commissioned Bruce Lawes to execute historically accurate scenes of the battles of Gettysburg for its 150th year commemoration.

This work, a vignette of the larger work, painted in 2014, “When Boys Become Men, Pickett’s Charge” focuses on one young infantryman, who pauses from manning the cannon to reflect upon the purpose of the war: ‘one nation indivisible’ - symbolized by the American flag waving in the midday light.

Conditions of Sale: ALL SALES ARE “AS IS, WHERE IS” WITHOUT ANY WARRANTIES WHATSOEVER. PLEASE SEE SECTION 2(a) BELOW IN WHICH ANY AND ALL EXPRESS AND IMPLIED WARRANTIES (INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION ANY WARRANTY AGAINST REDHIBITORY DEFECTS) ARE WAIVED.

1. Introduction (a). These Conditions of Sale (“Conditions of Sale”) contain all the terms governing Auctions (defined below) conducted by Cakebread Art Antiques Collectables, Inc. d/b/a New Orleans Auction Galleries (“NOAG”), and all the terms under which NOAG and the Seller (defined below) of a Lot (defined below) contract with the Buyer (defined below). These Conditions of Sale may be amended by posted notices or oral announcements made during the Auction. (b). Under these Conditions of Sale, the following capitalized terms are defined as follows: • An “Auction” is a public auction conducted by NOAG, at which Bidders may place Bids to purchase one or more Lots offered for sale by NOAG. An Auction takes place over one or more days and includes separate auctions of one or more Lots within an event conducted by NOAG; • The “Auctioneer” is the auctioneer calling the Auction conducted by NOAG; A “Bid” is a bid made by a party at the Auction to purchase a Lot; • A “Bidder” is (i) a person making a Bid at the Auction (whether in person, through an absentee bid, through electronic or internet means, or through telephone bidding); and/or (ii) a person who attends the Auction and registers to make a Bid (whether in person, through an absentee bid, through electronic or internet means, or through telephone bidding); • A “Buyer” is the party that commits to purchase a Lot by submitting the Winning Bid at Auction; • “Buyer’s Premium” is defined in Section 4 below; • “Catalogue” is the Auction catalogue utilized by NOAG to list the Lots offered at Auction; • The “Estimates” are the high and low estimates of value for each Lot set forth in the Catalogue presented by NOAG in connection with the Auction or otherwise set forth and/or announced at the Auction; • The “Hammer Price” for a Lot is the amount of the Winning Bid at the Auction, as announced by the Auctioneer, exclusive of commissions, Buyer’s Premium, expenses, and any taxes or other charges; • A “Lot” is specific item of property offered for sale at Auction; The “Reserve” is defined in Section 3 below; • The “Purchase Price” is defined in Section 4 below; A “Sale” of a Lot occurs when a Winning Bid is declared at Auction for the Lot; • The “Seller” of a Lot is the party who consigned the Lot with NOAG for purposes of selling the Lot, or is otherwise the seller of the Lot; • The “Winning Bid” is, as to a particular Lot, the Bid recognized by the Auctioneer as the highest and best Bid for that Lot.

(c). Except as otherwise stated, NOAG acts as consignment agent for the Seller. The contract for the sale of the Lot is therefore made between the Seller and the Buyer. (d). By bidding at the Auction as a Bidder or Buyer, and/or by your signature below, you agree to be bound by these terms.

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. NOAG and Seller provide absolutely no warranty against redhibitory defects, including without limitation: (x) any defects rendering a Lot useless or its use inconvenient; and (y) any defects diminishing the usefulness of a Lot; and any such warranties are 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. NOAG and Seller provide absolutely no warranty that the Lot is free from hidden defects, or for peaceful possession, or for ownership. (vi) No other warranties. None of the Seller, NOAG, or any of NOAG’s officers, employees or agents, give any representation, warranty or guarantee or assume any liability of any kind in respect of any Lot with regard to merchantability, fitness for a particular purpose, description, size, quality, condition, attribution, authenticity, rarity, importance, medium, provenance, exhibition history, literature or historical relevance. 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. (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. 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.

By participating in an Auction, you agree to all previously stated disclosure.
