101. Nicolas Party

b. 1980

Panorama acrylic on wood 205 x 149 cm (80 3/4 x 58 5/8 in.) Painted in 2015. Estimate £70,000-90,000 $88,800-114,000 €79,700-102,000 plus Buyers Premium and VAT*

Provenance SALTS, Basel Acquired from the above by the present owner Exhibited Basel, SALTS, Nicolas Party: Panorama, 17 June – 25 July 2015

In 2015, Nicolas Party created the site-specific exhibition, Panorama at SALTS in Basel. Inverting the exhibition space, Party lef the interior of the construction empty and instead utilized the outside of the structure, making this the focal point of the work. Inspired by the 19th century panorama pieces that preceded cinema, Party replaced the typical and traditional large-scale circular landscape scenes with twenty six unique paintings, positioning them on the side of the wooden construction. Using all sides of the structure, the piece required a full 360 degree viewing in order to see the complete artwork, and as the visitors explored the installation, they would have been struck by the uncanny atmosphere and sense of theatre. In contrast to the intimate salon hang of the framed pieces, the structure itself publically dominated the space at 16 feet, the colour in a surreal blue and white colour palette. The final result was a three dimensional outdoor painting, which culminates in Party’s characteristic painterly execution of still life motifs and enigmatic portraiture to create an installation resplendent in its trompe l’oeil.

102. Nina Chanel Abney

b. 1982

Untitled signed and dated ‘Nina Chanel Abney 2008’ on the overlap acrylic on canvas 111.8 x 182.9 cm (44 x 72 in.) Painted in 2008. Estimate £50,000-70,000 $63,400-88,800 €56,900-79,700 ‡ plus Buyers Premium and VAT*

Provenance Maruani Mercier, Brussels Kravets Wehby Gallery, New York Private Collection, New York Exhibited Roslyn Harbor, Nassau County Museum of Art, Eye of the Beholder - Contemporary Gallery, 10 January - 28 February 2010

The present work, Untitled, painted a year afer Nina Chanel Abney’s momentous MFA thesis show at Parsons School of Design in New York, is exemplary of the artist’s ability to blend pop culture with social commentary. Exuding a heightened energy, every part of the canvas is teeming with jostling fgures. Anonymous ghost-like bodies mingle with fve fgures at the forefront of the composition. The ghosts’ hollow eyes disclose little about their emotional states. The nonchalance of the four fgures to the right of the canvas is evident as Abney picks them out from the crowd. Standing confdently, their bodies facing directly towards us, their gazes averted from the viewer. In contrast, the woman to the lef of the canvas is being pushed out of the frame. With her arms crossed and her back to the fgures, she resists them, holding her ground defantly in spite of the discomfort of her surroundings. ‘Easy to swallow, but hard to digest’, is how Nina Chanel Abney describes her brightly coloured depictions of the dark state of contemporary American race relations (the artist,

quoted in ‘The Artsy Vanguard: Newly Established’, Artsy, 30 April 2018, online). Her progressive oeuvre was catapulted to the forefront of contemporary art after the attention garnered by her MFA thesis show, which consisted of a single work, Class of 2007. The diptych, Class of 2007, which reconfgured the artist as a white, blonde, blue-eyed armed prison guard and her MFA classmates as black prison inmates, was bought by the pioneering collectors Don and Mera Rubell based on a photograph of the piece. This work and three others by Abney from 2007 to 2008 were shown in 30 Americans, a show organised by the Rubell Family Collection which has toured to seventeen venues to date and showcased works of many important African American artists of the last three decades, including Barkley L. Hendricks, JeanMichel Basquiat and Lorna Simpson. Abney’s work has been recently celebrated at her solo museum exhibition, Nina Chanel Abney: Royal Flush, which was frst presented in 2018 in Los Angeles and will conclude this year at the Neuberger Museum of Art, New York.

Property from the Estate of Ryan Brant

To most the Brant surname will be synonymous with contemporary culture. Many will be familiar with the Brant Foundation, or indeed with the long-standing family ownership of Interview Magazine, the title founded by Andy Warhol and John Wilcock in the late 60’s. The Brant dynasty has cemented their reputation as creative thinkers who have founded, backed and nurtured an extraordinary artistic legacy. Born in 1971, Ryan Brant graduated from the Wharton School of Business with a degree in Economics and subsequently followed his father’s footsteps into the family business of publishing. Afer a spell working for Interview Magazine, Ryan lef to apply his experience in the rapidly expanding games publishing sector. In 1993, aged 21, Ryan founded Take-Two, as an organisation looking to become the market leader in the games industry. A string of successful releases enabled the company to expand quickly and lead the charge on the market. Astute collaborations and strategic decision making proved Ryan’s vision to be both commercially lucrative and critically successful. As one might expect with such informed beginnings, Ryan’s passion for art was driven in an absolute belief of the talent who created it. It was this commitment, combined with his natural creative foresight which led him to form a collection of artworks which was entirely refective of his ground-breaking aptitude. To observers, the nature of any collection of works can vary greatly in their common thread. The genesis of assemblage could be a single work, or a survey of more general exploration, such as thematic or compositional concerns. The present works, as part of Ryan’s collection, have been collated through a personal aesthetic which was to be enjoyed daily, in the domesticity of his family home in Palm Beach. Many of the works are vibrant in their tone- ofen playful- and crisply contemporary. The sum of this collection reflects an individual who revelled in creating an imaginative parallel to submerse into.

Phillips is honoured to present to market these works from the estate of Ryan Brant, on behalf of his family. In an all too short life, there was a long list of achievements in Ryan’s endeavours. It is a legacy which conveys personal tenacity with unrivalled vision. In equal measure, this unique group of works gives us a very personal insight into an extraordinary man, through the art of his own private reality.

In Strobe Lights + Flash Lights, executed in 2000, Marlene Dumas subtly evokes man-made light, rendered by the white paper that Dumas leaves unpainted which shines through the dark strokes of metallic paint, glimmering as they catch the light. Depicting a female form at the centre of the portrait’s composition, Dumas’ gestural painting style places an emphasis on the surface of the paper, invoking bleeding pools of paint which outline the figure in motion. Discussing her characterisation of her subjects, Dumas states ‘…it’s a stripping down to that melancholy sex appeal that makes surnames disappear and first names fctional’ (the artist, quoted in ‘Live Acts, Silent Studios’, strippinggirls, exh. cat., Theatermuseum, Amsterdam, 2000, n.p.). Throughout her prolifc oeuvre, the human form has been a key preoccupation of Marlene Dumas. From the dancing central figure, to the flare of light in the lower right of the composition, Dumas’ public scene feels emotive and intimate. For strippinggirls, the project produced with photographer Anton Corbijn between 1998 through 2000, Dumas visited the red-light district of her adopted home Amsterdam, taking Polaroids of the working women who became her painterly subject matter. This method of working partly from life was a departure from her process of painting from found pornographic images, producing a greater sense of intimacy and understanding of her subject. Dumas’ adroit handling of paint enables her to expertly animate the female fgure with a few thin washes of metallic acrylic and ink.

Michaël Borremans creates haunting and cinematic painterly worlds which oscillate between mundane quotidian realities and uncanny fantasies. The Gap, executed in 2001, was painted in the years following Borremans’ move from his established career as an engraver to embark on his exploration of the medium of paint. Continuing a painterly dialogue with Diego Velázquez and Édouard Manet, Borremans reduces his use of tone to an almost monochrome colour palette in the present work, rendering the fgure with marble-like skin. Staged in an ambiguous black void, we are given a partial view of the fgure’s face as he averts our gaze. This construction of a physical and psychological isolation is all the more heighted as the extreme cropping creates a contradictory sense of proximity.

‘ The actions are often senseless. But the work switches between an aspect of the absurd and a romantic connotation, like a vanitas. That the human being is a victim of his situation and is not free is a conviction of mine.’ Michaël Borremans

In the present work, the central unknown fgure stares intensely at a sheet of paper, completely engrossed in the object in front of him. Submerging us into Borremans’ painterly microcosm, the fgure holds the piece of paper up by its bottom corners at the furthest possible points, intent on displaying the whole object to the viewer; the fgure delicately balances the right corner on the tips of his fngers, creating a sense of tension and intrigue. Peering over his right shoulder, the viewer is confronted with an unnervingly blank page. There are no clues elsewhere in the painting to help elucidate this enigmatic scene. There is neither a sense of time nor space in The Gap and it is this dislocated ambiguity, which imbues an element of cinematic poetry and mystery.

Exploring and championing a breadth of mediums, such as animation, collage, performance and drawing, William Kentridge’s complex creations are multifaceted in form, resonating with audiences through their exploration of the very fabric of our existence. Drawing on Richard Wagner’s notion of the ‘Gesamtkunstwerk’, Kentridge’s sensory microcosms toy with the layering of multiple meanings. Revisiting and reacting to philosophical, historical or political tropes, Kentridge conjures myriad themes in his polymorphic works, producing works on paper and videos which are both experimental, structurally fragmented and conceptually rich. Utilising charcoal, coloured pencil and paint on paper in the present work, Anti-Entropy, executed in 2011, invokes a key image from the artist’s Anti-Mercator video piece, a work created in preparation for the artist’s project The Refusal of Time at Documenta 13 in Kassel, 2012, later shown at Louisiana Museum of Modern Art, Humlebaek, with a version jointly purchased by The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York, and the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art. This immersive work explored the technology of time-keeping and string theory, created in dialogue with physicist Peter Galison, while the earlier preparatory Anti-Mercator work explored the suspension of time and the resistance of spatial and formal linearity presented by scientists such as Gerardus Mercator. This body of work by Kentridge explores time and our changing cultural and standardised perceptions of time and space.

Breaking away from a linear presentation, in Kentridge’s flms, such as Anti-Mercator, images become increasingly incomplete, as if erased; in Anti-Mercator the artist runs the flm backwards so that drawings diminish rather than flourish. Comprised of three parts of brown patternmakers paper, Anti-Entropy presents the monumental formalisation and expansion of the video’s principal image. Highlighting the importance of narrative and movement in his oeuvre, Kentridge’s works on paper incorporate the artist’s experimentation with stratifying and layering, culminating on paper through fragmented, part-intelligible vignettes, thin washes of paint and sheer veils of graphite, which suggest an upcoming chapter or instalment. In the present work, Kentridge evidently extols in the medium of drawing; through laying bare erasures, smudges and altered forms, as well as exposing the work’s multiple compositional recesses, he allows the viewer to animate the scene, bringing the dancing pair to life. Deploying a filmic sequence or an image captured in motion, as evident in the work of Eadweard Muybridge, Anti-Entropy extends its purely formal dimension to the conceptual. Weaving the caption Anti-Entropy across what seems to be a costume-globe, worn by a fgure engaged with another graphically adorned dancing fgure, the composition alludes to a theme Kentridge returned to time and again in his oeuvre. Anti-Entropy, in his terms, could be defned as an act of resistance: a fortifed will.


‘So, when we throw a jug up in the air and it shatters, entropy declares statistically how unlikely it is that if we throw those shards into the air they will land back into the form of that same jug. But if you take all the shards that have been shattered, the artist’s job is to construct these shards, if not into the frst jug, then into another jug. To describe another understanding of the world is an act of resisting entropy..’ William Kentridge

Eadweard Muybridge Dancing Woman, plate 187 from ‘Animal Locomotion’, 1887, Private Collection Image: Bridgeman Images.

As specifed by the artist, ‘One way of describing what makes something alive is that it resists the tendency to cool down, lose energy, to go from one state of order to disorder, for the human body to turn to dust. It is anti-entropic. So, when we throw a jug up in the air and it shatters, entropy declares statistically how unlikely it is that if we throw those shards into the air they will land back into the form of that same jug. But if you take all the shards that have been shattered, the artist’s job is to construct these shards, if not into the frst jug, then into another jug. To describe another understanding of the world is an act of resisting entropy’ (the artist, quoted in Keli-Safa Maksud, ‘William Kentridge in Conversation’, Ocula Magazine, 1 June 2018, online). In Anti-Entropy, a sense of performativity is also imbued. The act of drawing itself can be an almost liberating and anti-entropic gesture as evident in the present work. The composition’s open and dynamically sketched appearance defies the static nature of two-dimensional piece. Notably Kentridge’s desire to materialise unending movement seems to echo the artist’s fervent desire to become an actor while growing up. Keeping performative themes at the core of his artistic expression, Kentridge utilises theatrical or expressionist language to convey motion and emotion in his narrative-driven works. Constantly rethinking the boundaries of drawing and two-dimensionality, the artist expands his creations beyond the confnes of their medium, thereby challenging the static nature they inherently suggest. Boasting gigantic scale, dramatic contrast, and projecting images on blank space as he would characters on a stage, the artist ceaselessly works with theatrics that exude an arresting sense of resonance through their form, content and context.

Provenance Spanierman Modern Gallery, New York Private Collection, California

Undoubtedly one of Britain’s fnest formalist painters, Frank Bowling’s painterly practice is currently being celebrated at the artist’s retrospective at the Tate Britain this summer. Since the 1960s, Bowling has been testing and stretching the possibilities of painting, continuing to experiment with form and materials. Born in Guyana, Bowling moved to Britain as a teenager and studied at the Royal College of Art in the early 1960s alongside David Hockney and R.B. Kitaj. Although Bowling achieved early recognition in London, he decided to move to New York in 1966 where his paintings became less constrained by the representational. Pursuing formalism on his own terms, Bowling built a tilting platform in his New York and London studios that enabled him to pour paint from heights of up to two metres, creating daring work that was the product of controlled accidents. The present work, Tiger Falls, was executed in 1980, by which time Bowling had been refning his abstract painting for a decade. Bowling’s deep understanding of the motion and colour of paint is evident in this dynamic composition of violet and ochre. Warm and cool hues are blended together, calmly spilling from the top-lef corner over the fnely-dappled layers underneath. Unlike the hard and rigid lines of American abstraction, visible in the work of Morris Louis or Kenneth Noland, Tiger Falls is an exploration into both the formal materiality as well as atmospheric suggestiveness of paint. In unison with the title, Bowling’s application of the medium is an organic mixture of impasto and thinner painterly washes, both invoking the natural world. Retaining a captivating ambiguity, Tiger Falls transports us into the depths of nature, inviting the viewer’s eye to follow the cascades of paint in motion.

‘In my youth I tended to look at the tragic side of human behaviour and try and refect that in my work, but gradually as I became more involved in the making of paintings, I realised that one of the main ingredients in making paintings was colour and geometry.’ Frank Bowling

Lots 123–132 Alexander Calder, Joan Miró, Jean Dubufet, Willem de Kooning – the list of esteemed names that constitute the Miles and Shirley Fiterman Collection reads like a crosscontinental survey of the 20th century’s most infuential artists. Born out of the seminal decade of the 1960s, the collection is not only a tribute to the dawning of a revolutionary era, but a witness to its making. To look at how Miles and Shirley Fiterman collected is to understand the importance of the collector at this crucial point in postwar history. Whilst few individuals have gathered artworks of such quality and importance, fewer still have done so across four decades, as new masterpieces were created by the same artists that they met and supported. A unique afnity with the zeitgeist and an ability to act ahead of the curve is what binds this collection to the industrial achievements of its proprietors. Intuitive, innovative and entrepreneurial, Miles Q. Fiterman was highly infuential in the construction boom following World War II, catering to the unprecedented demand for housing Miles Homes Inc., which he founded in 1946, grew to be the nation’s largest supplier of prefabricated housing prior to its sale in 1972. The Miles and Shirley Fiterman Collection astutely harnesses the common aesthetic impulses of the 20th century and allows us to investigate their variations. Bold yet elegant, expressing both formal balance and expressive abandon, the collection celebrates the ability of art to imagine the world anew.

Based in Minneapolis, Miles and Shirley Fiterman formed part of a conduit between the international contemporary art scene and their beloved home city. Their sustained eforts to bring great art to the region manifested in their lifelong support of the Walker Art Center and The Minneapolis Institute of Arts. Highly personal, astutely connoisseurial and indelibly philanthropic, the Fitermans’ model of collecting was built on several important foundations: the personal relationships that they built with trailblazing dealers and gallerists such as Gordon Locksley and Aimé Maeght; the acquisition of exemplary works by the revolutionary artists that they met and forged frienships with – including Andy Warhol and Claes Oldenburg; sustained patronage to museums that championed the causes of modern and contemporary art; and their proactive role in providing greater access to education in art. The couple were patrons of and enabled acquisitions at the Minneapolis Institute of Art, where the Fiterman name graces several of the museum’s buildings. Miles and Shirley Fiterman were also active patrons within the locale of their other residence in Palm Beach, Florida. Both sat on the board of the Norton Museum of Art, where Mrs. Fiterman went on to assume the role of board president. Outside of the United States, Miles and Shirley Fiterman were honored as Patrons of the Year in 2001 at the Tel Aviv Museum of Art and the Tel Aviv Museum, where they also served as board members. As arbiters of taste, champions of groundbreaking artists, Miles and Shirley Fiterman did not simply collect – in essence, they defned what it was to be a collector in the 20th century.

Joan Miró in the Fiterman Collection ‘For me, an object is a living thing.’

Poetically and magically re-inventing traditional sculptural depictions of the female form, birds and fgures, the current selection of works from the Fiterman Collection wonderfully demonstrate Joan Miró’s constant challenge of artistic norms since his initial spectacular emergence as a sculptor between 1946 and 1949 with the creation, modelling and casting of Lunar Bird and Solar Birds. From the mid 1960’s, Miró adopted assemblage in the modelling of his women, birds and fgures; subjects that appear intermittently throughout Miró’s output and typically assigned titles such as Personnage, Oiseau, Femme. Miró’s assemblage sculptures, rooted in Surrealist collage and Goya’s Caprices, unite the marvel of childhood joy with the rustic wit of the Catalans. Reminiscent of ‘that brand of confused alchemy derived from Miró’s close friend Marcel Duchamp … Miró changed the experience of pictorial invention with his peasant-like, dogmatic instinct. He approached and re-examined the most familiar subjects – a pebble, a tap, a leaf, twig, piece of soap, a toy or a Catalan cake.’ (Jacques Dupin, in Emilio Fernández Miró and Pilar Ortega Chapel, Joan Miró: Sculptures. Catalogue raisonné 1928-1982, Paris, 2006, p. 21). Objects collected such as iron, stones and other found and discovered treasures were combined during the evolution of his bronzes, thereby altering their artistic purpose and infusing the fnal work with a dynamic poetic spirit. ‘The real, almost unique inventiveness of Miró the sculptor lay in his work with

assemblage. In the beginning, strange, disparate elements gradually evolved during the process of discovery to become recognisable pieces – parts of a construction in which they increasingly revealed themselves … to form a sculpture that was articulate and that unfolded like a musical fugue and variations.’ (Jacques Dupin, in Emilio Fernández Miró and Pilar Ortega Chapel, Joan Miró: Sculptures. Catalogue raisonné 1928-1982, Paris, 2006, p. 22). Through these assemblage works, Miro was able to escape the constraints of everyday life. Explaining his process of using the found items he collected on his walks in the countryside, Miró noted, ‘I feel attracted to an object by a magnetic force, without the slightest premeditation, and then I feel myself being drawn to another object which is added to the frst, and in combination they create a poetic shock, preceded by that visual and physical revelation which makes poetry truly moving…’ (the artist, quoted in Joan Miró: Selected Writings and Interviews, Boston, 1986, p. 125). Conceived between 1970 and 1978, the following examples Personnage, Femme and Personnage et oiseau, take Miró’s key motifs as their subject, delightfully conveying femininity and expressing the fantasy of found materials becoming animate and alive, leaving representation and reality to arouse the imagination. Miró devised a new poetry and denotation that conjure unconscious primitive forms and prehistoric traditions.


‘In an artwork, you should be able to discover new things every time you see it.’ Joan Miró

‘…For me, the material is the paint itself. The paint expresses itself. In the mass of the paint, I find my imagination and go on to paint it.’ Karel Appel

In Nu Laineux, executed in 1956, Karel Appel’s swathes of coloured impasto engulf the central form. Stripping the fgure of distinguishable features, the nude’s countenance radiates from the work through Appel’s adept handling of colour and form. Using heavily applied strokes of richly coloured oil, Appel’s ‘expressive vehemence’ is ingrained into the fabric of the present work’s composition (Michel Tapie, ‘Une véhémence expressive’, in, Claude Fournet, ed., 40 ans de peinture, sculpture et dessin, Paris, 1987, p. 107). Imbuing the work with fervent energy, Appel experimented with applying oil straight from the tube, entwining the immediacy of his gesture directly with the canvas. Combining a palette of yellow, red and blue, thick black striations defne the outline of the central fgure, twisting and contorting with the artist’s enigmatic application. A co-founder of the progressive CoBrA movement in 1948, Appel settled in Paris in 1950 where he began to travel worldwide. Two years prior to the execution of the present work, Appel’s work was celebrated at his frst solo exhibition in the USA at Martha Jackson Gallery and the artist received the UNESCO prize at the Venice Biennale. By 1956, the same year as the present work was painted, Appel created a mural for the entrance of the Stedelijk Amsterdam. A key fgure of the 20th century European avant-garde, the present work is a vibrant example of the artist’s mastery of oil, conjuring an energetic and anarchic composition on canvas.

155. Jesús Rafael Soto

Gran Marrón signed, titled and dated ‘GRAN MARRÓN SOTO 2001’ on the reverse acrylic on wood and metal 203.2 x 152.1 x 18.4 cm (80 x 59 7/8 x 7 1/4 in.) Executed in 2001. Estimate £200,000-300,000 $253,000-379,000 €226,000-339,000 ‡ plus Buyers Premium and VAT*

Provenance DAN Galeria, São Paulo Acquired from the above by the present owner

Gran Marrón toys with our perceptions, flickering between light and dark, flatness and volume, stillness and motion. Executed in 2001, Gran Marrón is a testament to Jesús Rafael Soto’s masterful understanding of human perception. Invited to participate in Galerie Denise René’s defning exhibition Le Mouvement in 1955, the contemporary Parisian audiences were intrigued by the artist’s innovative use of overlapping patterned Plexiglas that created a moiré efect. Soto’s work in Le Mouvement had a profound infuence on optical art; his dialogue with optics and his manipulation of colour and form culminate in the present work. In the lower half of Gran Marrón, a restless energy is created by the contrast between the densely packed but fnely painted black and white vertical and the horizontally-striped square units that are afxed to it, creating energetic disruption from

the intricately ordered composition. These vibrating patterns reveal themselves to be composed of multiple planes, as the central portion extrudes even further into the viewer’s space. The black, brown and yellow squares emerge and subside through the grey haze of stripes. Through the upper half of the work, a calm swathe of iridescent brown appears peaceful and subtle, with tonal variations created from the viewer’s varying perspectives. It appears as a blend of the colours of the lower half, creating a unifying force throughout this dynamic work. A key proponent of ZERO, Soto’s hopeful vision of a new art challenged the entrenched idea of the artist as the sole author of meaning and instead necessitated viewers to activate the work through their plural experiences of the phenomena of light and space. Soto’s oeuvre crucially engages with the sensations of being experienced by an embodied viewer, as exemplifed in the present work.

‘The series ‘Noses & Ears, Etc.’ had its inception when I was a painter in the mid-50s. I was immersed in thinking about totality (what is a whole and what is a part?)... To represent people only by an ear and/or nose became for me another way of reducing human identity to a minimum. Faces become clichés like anything else, so viewing people only by ears and/or nose might enable the viewer to see afresh.’ John Baldessari

Provenance Massimo De Carlo Gallery, London Acquired from the above by the present owner

Executed in 2015, I Hate Work incorporates the visual disarray of Dan Colen’s earlier paintings whilst maintaining a serene and organic balance. In a furry of blossom, the artist’s arrangement of visual whirlpools of fowers subsumes the viewer’s gaze into the heart of the canvas. While the fowers themselves, pressed into the surface, act as visual anchors, their pigment difuses and radiates from their nuclei, with both a sof and intense hue. Questioning the painterly gestures of Jackson Pollock and the Abstract Expressionists, Colen cites the Pre-Raphaelites as an infuence. Invoking the Pre-Raphaelites’ use of fowers to convey poignant symbolism, in the present work Colen explores both the anarchy and, conversely, order evident in nature. From his 2007 Nest installation at Deitch Projects, New York, to the present canvas, Colen’s work seeks to disrupt and challenge the limitations of painting, also seen in his Bubblegum and Birdshit paintings. With an anarchic abandonment Colen’s use of myriad organic mediums in his practice defies categorisation. Endlessly joyous in its evocation of colour and energy, Colen’s I Hate Work imbues the artist’s free and rebellious spirit.

‘I want the viewer to feel like they can leap into the paintings, and although the picture created by the fowers is essentially abstract, I want the viewer to be able to imagine what it would feel like to be immersed in that environment, to be bathed in it…’ Dan Colen

Gerhard Richter Korridor, 1964, oil on canvas Städtisches Museum Gelsenkirchen © Gerhard Richter 2019 (0142)

Karin Knefel’s monumental Ohne Titel is a compelling example of the artist’s photorealist paintings, which earnt Kneffel international artistic renown in the 1990s. After studying philosophy in the late 1970s, Knefel enrolled at the esteemed Kunstakademie Düsseldorf from 1981 to 1987 where she studied under Gerhard Richter. The tension between illusionistic depth and fattened surface in Knefel’s painting is reminiscent of that seen in Richter’s series of Photo Paintings, both produced by working from photographically mediated images. It is the striking linear perspective that draws our eyes into the compositionally minimal Ohne Titel, as is evident in Richter’s 1964 work Korridor (Städtisches Museum Gelsenkirchen). The present work imbues a disquieting atmosphere as the viewer is denied a defnite sense of space. As our eyes are led by the perspectival lines towards the vanishing point, we see nothing but more carpeted stairs, with no view beyond them. In the present work, shades of deep red with blue and yellow arabesque runners appear timeless. The rich colours and ornamentation exude a sense of lavishness and perhaps suggest associations with petit bourgeois taste. As Knefel explains, ‘a certain sense of melancholy and anxiety […] No one likes these kinds of furnishings. They are largely disregarded in intellectual circles, just as the classically modern Bauhaus furnishings are unanimously indisputable’ (the artist, quoted in Daniel J. Schreiber, ‘Looking Back to the Future’, Artist’s Website, online). In addition, the enormous scale of the painting distorts our perception as a quotidian fight of carpeted stairs. We are immediately dwarfed by the huge swathes of red paint, appearing abstract to the viewer until seen from a distance. It is through this ingenious interplay between reality and illusion that Knefel absorbs us into her uncanny world.

From India to Venice A Selection of Works by Indian Artists from an Esteemed European Collection

The following selection of works by artists living and working in India are linked by a mutual theme of exploration into the changing environment in which they are created and the influence of both Eastern and Western culture. Housed in an esteemed European collection, this year Atul Dodiya’s and Shilpa Gupta’s work has been selected to represent India at the country’s second ever appearance on the Western stage of the Venice Biennale.

devouring great masterpieces, so in that sense it’s also a self-portrait. I enjoy the amalgamation of diverse time and situation in a single picture plane and ofen feel that the past no longer remains past and reveals itself in the present. The present easily moves and goes back in time. I am fascinated by the idea of mingling time, life and art and it appears empathetically in my work.’ - Atul Dodiya (May 2019).

Working across multiple mediums Shilpa Gupta’s oeuvre addresses a wide variety of subjects such as the psyche, society and politics, verbalizing their stifed contents. Her work has been featured at major international institutions, including Tate Modern, London, Louisiana Museum, Humlebaek, Centre Pompidou, Paris, and Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, New York, and the artist has represented India as part of the 56th and current 58th Venice Biennale. 01: 14.9 powerfully illustrates the fraught West, Northwest border between India and Pakistan: 1188.5 miles, as updated on 31 December 2007 depicted with a ratio of 1 to 14.9. Gupta winds 80 miles of thread into an ivory delicate oval egg shape, highlighting the fragility of fear, threat, paranoia and religious prejudices. An edition of this work is owned by the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, New York, and a further edition belongs to the Menil Collection, Houston.

Alluding to a multitude of cultural references from both East and West throughout her oeuvre, and clearly evident in Time and Warriors & Green Worm, Nalini Malani refers to both Greek and Indian ancient mythology amalgamated with contemporary symbols and imagery. This exploration culminates in works that strongly condemn contemporary violence and injustice. Malani’s work is currently on view in the Sharjah Biennial, United Arab Emirates, and it was the subject of a retrospective at the Castello di Rivoli in Turin, Italy, earlier this year. She has been announced as the winner of the Joan Miró Prize 2019 with a solo show set to open at the Fundació Joan Miró in Barcelona in 2020.

Living and working in Mumbai, Jitish Kallat’s works divulge his constant engagement with the concept of time, space, death, cycles of life, our place in the universe and historical nostalgia, moving interchangeably between contemplation of the self and understanding transitory existence within the framework of the eternal. Ageing, distressing and tearing surfaces and elements of his works alludes to these constant musings on time which simultaneously remark upon the unique idiosyncrasies of his home. Dilapidation, degradation, the demolition and reclamation of culture and history are incorporated within Kallat’s themes through the artist’s perceptive treatment of both subject matter and technique. Krishna Swallowing Forest Fire depicts the story of the god Krishna extinguishing a forest fre by swallowing the fames. Intensely cognisant of history, Dodiya entwines stylistic and iconographic characteristics from the East and West, unifying classical myth and political history to fuse fragments of Western art historical masterpieces in a new interpretation. ‘In Indian miniature paintings there are many beautiful images of adventures of Lord Krishna as a saviour from the series ‘Bhagwat Puran’. Here in my painting Krishna is swallowing forest fre. At the edge of each fame I have placed the museum magnets of great works of art, which I have been collecting from the various western museums. I ofen convey my interest in the history of art, juxtaposing the references from the diverse sources and try to give a new meaning to an existing image in my work. In this work, it could be me

Jiten Thukral and Sumir Tagra work collaboratively, utilising a wide range of mediums to increase the possibility and realms of art, breaking from arbitrated and punitive rules to create sensory and immersive works that involve the viewer. Creating a canvas that protrudes and subsequently includes the viewer through invading the mutual space, Kingdom Come I (Couple) invites intrigue and further investigation. Their work is a dynamic dialogue on shifting moral codes in India’s modernising cities. Thukral and Tagra utilise bright, colourful palettes and the glossy lustre of pop aesthetics to critically scrutinize taboo subjects like sexuality in this socially-aware vibrant work. Jagannath Panda’s works are ofen inspired by his native historic state Orissa, famed for its temples and tribal culture, and his current home, chaotically urban and constantly developing New Delhi, bringing together many binary opposites in his work. Sensitive to the issues raised by urbanisation and politics, Panda contrasts nature and culture, rural and urban, tradition and modernisation to refect his own experiences and concerns. Migrant uses his motif of animal life to represent these confictions and concerns around displacement and alienation. Jagannath Panda has received significant international exposure and recognition, having participated in a multitude of international exhibitions including the Mori Art Museum, Tokyo, in 2008. Born in West Java, Indonesia, and now living and working in Berlin, Yudi Noor examines the relational state of material as an abstract visual, profering spiritual denotation through paired back arrangements and compositions in a multitude of mediums.

Chinese Iconographies A Selection of Works by Chinese Artists from an Esteemed European Collection

The ensuing group of works by Chinese artists explore the importance of identifying with and refecting on their cultural heritage through physical objects, motifs and references whilst addressing current socio-political circumstances within China and around the world.

internationally; most recently the artist held a solo show, The Glorious, at Perrotin, Hong Kong, which fnished in May 2019, and his works have also been celebrated at the Venice Biennale, 2001 and 2005, and Museum of Modern Art, New York in 2004.

Memory Door (Miss) is a commanding example from Zhang Huan’s 2006 series entitled Memory Doors in which the artist collected doors from country houses in Shanxi Province that were being torn down or renovated in favour of a new, Western style. Huan used the Chinese tradition of pasting gods or deities to bring luck and fortune, now incorporating three diferent themes: military, day labor and daily life. Huan’s pasted photographs were partially carved away into bas-reliefs that in turn interacted with the surviving measures of the photographs. Merging traditions and skills of the past with innovative artistic devises, Huan employed Chinese artisans instead of artists to help complete the carvings, simultaneously keeping traditional Chinese crafsmanship alive, whilst creating an innovative outlet for their specialist skills.

A tour de force in China’s contemporary art scene, Yang Fudong born in Beijing, has explored historical, social and political themes through the realms of flm and photography since the early 1990s. Typifying how the recent and accelerated modernisation of China confronts traditional morals and culture, Yang opposes current and social issues with cultural norms within a scene resonating nostalgia, classic beauty and lyrical harmony. Executed in the artist’s typically preferred black and white, Yejiang/ The Nightman Cometh 1 is a still from a video piece of the same name, exploring China’s cinematic history. Among others, Yang Fudong has held solo exhibitions at Yuz Museum, Shanghai, 2015, Kunsthalle Zürich, 2013, and Kunsthalle Wien in 2005. Another example of this work is held in the Daimler art collection.

A leading fgure among the young generation of Chinese artists, Xu Zhen lives and works in Shanghai. Xu Zhen’s output through MadeIn Company, the artist’s brand since 2009, largely consists of sculptures, paintings and installations, predominantly representing incompatible contradictions between iconographies which refer to distant cultures, civilisations and time periods, alluding to the various power struggles of human history. This makes a clear criticism of Imperial China’s persecution of Tibet. In the present work, Buddha’s Warrior Attendant, the Kepi – a symbol of the oppressor, is ironically far too small for the head on which it sits, powerfully condemning the illegitimacy of dictatorial controls over religious and cultural minorities. Following the contradictions and theme of contrasts throughout Xu’s work, the commanding primitive stature of the Buddha’s Warrior Attendant is contradicted by the lightness and fragility of the polyurethane foam – symbolic of the existing political and social systems. Xu Zhen’s progressive oeuvre has been exhibited

Born in a Shanghai Buddhist monastery, Yan Pei-Ming lef China for France in 1980 to join the Dijon Academy of Arts where he has lived and worked ever since. Combining his dual cultural heritage, Yan’s almost exclusively portraiture output, painted wholly in a monochromatic or bi-chromatic palette, traverses the line between Western-inspired compositions and the work of Chinese Zen calligraphers who would use similarly large brushes to circumvent an arbitrated from of expression. Revisiting the wide-ranging subjects of his monumental portraits to near obsession, the artist paints from memory, taking images sourced from newspapers or other clippings. The powerful use of red in Red Buddha condenses the associations with Communist China and Mao’s Little Red Book, and is the strongest colour signifying danger and alert. Yan is one of China’s most accomplished painters and has exhibited at the Venice Biennale in 1995 and 2003. His work has been celebrated at solo exhibitions at Ullens Center for Contemporary Art, Beijing, the San Francisco Art Institute and the Musée du Louvre, Paris.

‘When I look at the Steppe, it reminds me of my body, dry and in some places hairy...When I look at the round yurts and tables, they remind me of my breasts.’ (Almagul Menlibayeva, lyrics from Milk for Lambs).

Almagul Menlibayeva captivates the viewer, entwining myth, tradition and documentary of modern times, accompanying the people of her native country, Kazakhstan, during the festivities in worship of the sky deity Tengri and his wife Umai, goddess of the fertile ground. Exploring rituals through the Kazakhstani women and their newly evolving understanding of their identity since the demise of communism in Central Asia, Menlibayeva conveys her pursuit for a personal path through tradition and the modern world.

Combining the political and the personal, and the efect of politics on individuals, has been a constant theme throughout Ivanov’s sculptures and installations since the early 1990’s when he lef Bulgaria’s second city to study in Sofa, where he now resides. Initially created for a group exhibition held at La Maison de la Culture d’Amiens, France in 2010, Loaded presents a selection of mismatched suitcases, in various structural states. Their installation display recalls the halls of a railway station or some other place of passage. A muted violence exudes from the skeletal forms, conjuring involuntary collective displacement as well as individual fates broken by history, expulsion and exile, a powerful portrayal of the contrasts between adversity and the opportunity of freedom.

The Golden Section Largely considered to be the pinnacle of Aesthetic Harmony; the Golden Ratio has infuenced the work of artists and architects since antiquity and its most recognisable structure, The Parthenon (447 BC). Also known as the Golden Section or the Divine Proportion, this mathematical principle is an expression of the ratio of two sums whereby their ratio is equal to the larger of the two quantities. This geometry strictly informed iconic examples such as Leonardo da Vinci’s Vitruvian Man (c. 1490) and Filippo Brunelleschi’s dome design for Cattedrale di Santa Maria del Fiore in Florence (1418-1434), but also throughout art history to the present day. Its principles are noticeable in the composition of George Seurat Bathers at Asnières (1884), which encompasses the rule of thirds, and in Piet Mondrian’s Composition II in Red Blue and Yellow (1929) shows the reoccurring ‘golden rectangle’. ARTinD is a unique project aiming to unite architecture and fine art. For this project ARTinD standing as a platform for meta collaborations between art and architecture chose 10 world renowned architects: Ben Van Berkel, Peter Eisenman, Sou Fujimoto, Thom Mayne, Alessandro Mendini, Piero and Nathalie Sartogo, and Pritzker Prize winners: Peter Zumthor, Rafael Moneo, Toyo Ito and Norman Foster. Each master presents his vision of the golden ratio by creating a unique individual handmade silk carpet. The resulting works displayed the hugely diverse interpretations of the naturally occurring but long studied mathematical ratio. Phillips exclusively collaborates with ARTinD on this project in which eight carpets were ofered at auctions in 2018. We are proud to present two carpets designed by Rafael Moneo and Toyo Ito which will close this project. Toyo Ito has defned his highly praised architecture as ‘clothing’ for urban dwellers, particularly in the contemporary Japanese metropolis. This deeply sociological interest has permeated his approach to design and also the

nature of his commissions. Initially known for his dwellings such as the seminal White U House, Ito designed for his recently widowed sister, his body of work has developed to include more cultural and community focused spaces such as the Temporary Serpentine Pavilion (2002) and Sendai Mediatheque (2001): a multi-function complex accommodating a mixed programme of library, art gallery, audio visual library, film studio and café. Ito has said ‘’I would like to use architecture to create bonds between people who live in cities, and even use it to recover the communities that used to exist in every single city.’’ Ito has often drawn inspiration from the natural world in his work, borrowing organic forms and incorporating them seamlessly into his sleek post-modern approach. This infuence forms of the basis of the project from which Ito’s unique carpet was based. The architect’s design for the library at the College of Social Sciences, Taiwan University features a segmented ceiling, supported by treelike columns which results in the overall impression of clean and white yet thick forest canopy. The interspersed skylights mimic the natural dappled light through branches, serving as a form of antidote to one of the world’s most densely populated cities. For the sketch of the carpet, Ito has simplifed and reduced the roof design, charting only the circular clusters of the columns. Through connecting the dots, a distinct spiral pattern emerges, which is reminiscent of the nautilus shell spiral, synonymous with the aesthetic beauty of the Golden Section. These spirals are repeated to form a rhythmic and delicate efect. Ito has said ‘Architects have made architecture too complex. We need to simplify it and use a language that everyone can understand.’ Through breaking down his thought process into a simple mathematical pattern and immortalising it in this carpet design, Ito demonstrates his commitment to simplicity.

‘I would say that to put architecture in the chain of history, to be able to interpret and understand why we are where we are, is quite crucial.’ Rafael Moneo

As an architect, Rafael Moneo’s work has been profoundly infuenced by history, art and philosophy. Moneo has described his interest in the architectural canon and a historically rooted base of knowledge and solutions from which contemporary architects could draw. ‘I would say that to put architecture in the chain of history, to be able to interpret and understand why we are where we are, is quite crucial.’ This artistic interpretation of the Golden Section for Moneo’s carpet design can be attributed to this end. Moneo drew from both the description and illustrations of an extract ‘La Pratica della Perspettiva di Monsignor Daniel Barbaro’, the 16th century treatise on perspective by the architect, writer and patron of Andrea Palladio, Daniele Barbaro. The chosen passage describes, ‘…a body of 12 surfaces with 5 sides, and from the body of 20 triangular surfaces, originates another body which contains the fat surfaces, sides and angles of the mentioned body. This is because it is formed by 20 pentagons and 30 sides of the dodecahedron, and by 20 triangles with 30 sides of the icosahedron.’ The complex and curious 32-sides polyhedron explained and illustrated by Barbaro has as its foundation, the ‘Golden Section’ and thus forms the basis of the pattern making up the carpet design. It is made up of a series of pentagons and triangles, each shape mirrored with a sequence of smaller shapes and varying line density to simulate the perspective of protruding threedimensional forms, reminiscent of natural salt crystals viewed under a microscope.

In developing this design to the completion of the finished carpet, the colour of the silk is based on a Franciscan tunic, one of the most recognisable symbols in the art historical canon. The Christian religion has vast signifcance in the development of western art and architecture through its expansive patronage. The subtle reference to this in the present work harmoniously links the themes of religion and scientifc discovery as key factors in the history of art and architecture. Moneo’s appreciation for history and art spans further than the architect’s approach and is relevant to the purpose of his commissions. He has designed many museums and cultural spaces, most notably when he converted the Villahermosa palace in Madrid into the museum that houses the Thyssen-Bornemisza collection (1989–92) and designed the Pilar and Joan Miró foundation in Palma de Mallorca (1987–92), the Kursaal Centre in San Sebastián (completed 1999 and winner of the European union prize for contemporary architecture—Mies Van der Rohe award, 2001). Of his approach designing the Museum of Roman Art (completed 1986) he said ‘At the Museum of Roman Art, the logic of the forms is very much modern. But in spite of that, the idea of the construction could be related to a historical time.’

UK Auction Buyer’s Guide The following pages are designed to offer you information on how to buy at auction at Phillips. Our staff will be happy to assist you. The Conditions of Sale and Authorship Warranty published on our website at https://phillips.com also govern the auction. Bidders are strongly encouraged to read them as they outline the legal relationship between Phillips, the seller and the buyer and describe the terms upon which items are bought at auction. A) Before The Auction Catalogues & Catalogue Entries Our catalogues provide information on the lots for sale at the auction and are available on our website at www.phillips. com and in hard copy. Lot details can also be viewed on the Phillips App. If you would like to purchase a hard copy catalogue for a Phillips auction, please visit our website or contact us at catalogues@phillips.com. Catalogue entries may include the history of ownership of a work of art, as well as the exhibition history of the property and references to the work in art publications. While we are careful in the cataloguing process, provenance, exhibition and literature references may not be exhaustive. In some cases we may not disclose the identity of previous owners where we are not authorised to do so. Please note that all dimensions of the property set out in the catalogue entry are approximate. Pre-auction viewings are open to the public and free of charge. The dates and times are published on our website at https://phillips.com. Our specialists are available to give advice and condition reports at viewings or by appointment. Estimates Pre-sale estimates are intended as a guide for prospective buyers. Any bid within the high and low estimate range should, in our opinion, offer a chance of success. However, many lots achieve prices below or above the pre-sale estimates. Pre-sale estimates do not include the buyer’s premium or VAT. Where ‘Estimate on Request’ appears, please contact the specialist department for further information. As estimates can be subject to revision we suggest contacting us closer to the time of the auction. Estimates in non-local currencies Although the sale is conducted in pounds sterling, the pre-sale estimates in the auction catalogues may also be printed in other currencies. These estimates are approximate and provided as a courtesy to our clients. The exchange rates used are those applying on the last practical date before printing the catalogue. The rates may have changed between the time of printing the catalogue and the auction. Condition Our catalogues include references to condition only in the descriptions of multiple works (e.g., prints). Such references, though, do not amount to a full description of condition. The absence of reference to the condition of a lot in the catalogue entry does not imply that the lot is free from faults or imperfections.

Solely as a convenience to clients, Phillips may provide condition reports. In preparing such reports, our specialists assess the condition in a manner appropriate to the estimated value of the property and the nature of the auction in which it is included. While condition reports are prepared honestly and carefully, our staff are not professional restorers or trained conservators. We therefore encourage all prospective buyers to inspect the property at the pre-sale exhibitions and recommend, particularly in the case of any lot of significant value, that you retain your own restorer or professional advisor to report to you on the property’s condition prior to bidding. Any prospective buyer of photographs or prints should always request a condition report because all such property is sold unframed, unless otherwise indicated in the condition report. If a lot is sold framed, Phillips accepts no liability for the condition of the frame. If we sell any lot unframed, we will be pleased to refer the purchaser to a professional framer. Symbols Used In The Catalogue You may see the following symbols referenced in the catalogue. O Guaranteed Property Lots designated with the symbol O are the subject of a minimum price guarantee. In such cases Phillips has guaranteed to the seller of the lot that regardless of the outcome of the sale the seller shall receive no less than a minimum sum. This guarantee may be provided solely by Phillips or jointly with a third party. ♦ Third Party Guarantee Where Phillips has agreed to a minimum price guarantee it assumes the financial risk of a lot failing to sell or selling for less than the minimum price guarantee. Because the sums involved can be significant Phillips may choose to share the burden of that financial risk with a third party. The third party shares the risk by committing in advance of the sale, usually by way of a written bid, to buy the lot for an agreed amount whether or not there are competing bidders for the lot. If there are competing bidders third party guarantors may also bid above any written bid. In this way the thirdparty guarantor assumes the risk of the bidding not reaching the amount of the minimum price guarantee. In return for underwriting or sharing this risk Phillips will usually compensate the third party. The compensation may be in the form of a fixed fee or an amount calculated by reference to the hammer price of the lot. If the thirdparty guarantor is the successful bidder Phillips will report the purchase price net of any fees paid to the third-party guarantor. ∆ Property in which Phillips has an Ownership Interest Lots with this symbol indicate that Phillips owns the lot in whole or in part or has an economic interest in the lot equivalent to an ownership interest. No Reserve •Unless indicated by a •, all lots in this catalogue are offered subject to a reserve. A reserve is the confidential value established between Phillips and the seller and below which a lot may not be sold. The reserve for each lot is generally set at a percentage of the low estimate and will not exceed the low pre-sale estimate.

∑ Endangered Species Lots with this symbol have been identified at the time of cataloguing as containing endangered or other protected species of wildlife which may be subject to restrictions regarding export or import and which may require permits for export as well as import.

Calculating the Total Purchase Price If you are the successful bidder on a Lot, the total purchase price you pay is made up of the following elements:

Hammer Price

Buyer’s Premium

VAT on Buyer’s Premium and/or Hammer Price (If applicable)

Artist’s Resale Royalty (ARR) (If applicable)

The Hammer Price: This is the final, highest bid which the auctioneer accepts by bringing down the auctioneer’s hammer. Buyer’s Premium: This is the commission Phillips charges the successful highest bidder and buyer of the lot. The Buyer’s premium is calculated on the hammer price of the lot at the following rates on a cumulative basis: • 25% on the portion of the hammer price up to and including £300,000; and • 20% on the portion of the hammer price above £300,000 up to and including £3,000,000 and • 13.5% on the portion of the hammer price above £3,000,000. Where VAT is payable on the Buyer’s premium the VAT inclusive Buyer’s Premium rates are 30%, 24% and 16.2% respectively. VAT Most items we sell are sold under UK Auctioneer’s Margin Scheme rules. This means that VAT is charged at 20% on the buyer’s premium and will not be shown separately on the invoice. UK Auctioneer’s Margin Scheme lots have no VAT symbol. Where the lot has a †, ‡ or Ω symbol against it, VAT may be charged on a different basis. For full details, including how to claim VAT refunds, please see the VAT & Tax Guide in this Auction Buyer’s Guide and on our website ♠ Artist’s Resale Royalty (ARR) The laws in certain countries entitle qualifying artists or their estates to a royalty when the artist’s works are resold for a hammer price of EUR 1,000 or more. Lots subject to ARR are marked with the symbol ♠. The ARR is calculated as a percentage of the hammer price on a cumulative basis as follows and is payable as part of the purchase price: Portion of the Hammer Price (in EUROS) From 0 to 50,000 From 50,000.01 to 200,000 From 200,000.01 to 350,000 From 350,000.01 to 500,000 Exceeding 500,000

Royalty Rate 4% 3% 1% 0.5% 0.25%

The total charge for ARR on any single lot cannot exceed Euros 12,500. To calculate the ARR, we use the pounds


sterling/euro reference exchange rate quoted on the date of the auction by the European Central Bank. Example To illustrate how the purchase price is calculated, please see the below example: UK Auctioneer’s Margin Scheme lot Hammer Price: £350,000 Buyer’s Premium including VAT @20% £102,000: 25% of first £300,000 of the hammer price = £75,000 + 20% on the balance of £50,000 = £10,000 Total BP = £85,000 VAT @ 20% on the total BP of £85,000 = £17,000 B) At The Auction Bidding Bids may be executed during the auction in person, by paddle or by telephone or prior to the sale in writing by absentee bid. Proof of identity in the form of governmentissued identification will be required, as will an original signature and proof of address. We may also require that you furnish us with a bank reference. Undisclosed agreements between bidders to bid or abstain from bidding on lots are illegal. Please note that Phillips monitors its sales and bidding records to ensure that bidding is transparent and fair and will take appropriate action in the event of any suspected breach of this requirement. In Person To bid in person, you will need to register for and collect a paddle before the auction begins. New clients are encouraged to register at least 48 hours in advance of a sale to allow sufficient time for us to process your information. All lots sold will be invoiced to the name and address to which the paddle has been registered and invoices cannot be transferred to other names and addresses. Please do not misplace your paddle. In the event you lose it, inform a Phillips staff member immediately. At the end of the auction, please return your paddle to the registration desk. By Telephone If you cannot attend the auction, you may bid live on the telephone with one of our multilingual staff members. This service must be arranged at least 24 hours in advance of the sale and is available for lots whose low pre-sale estimate is at least £500. Telephone bids may be recorded. By bidding on the telephone, you consent to the recording of your conversation. We suggest that you leave a maximum bid, excluding the buyer’s premium and VAT, which we can execute on your behalf in the event we are unable to reach you by telephone. Online Bidding If you cannot attend the auction in person, you may bid online on our online live bidding platform available on our website at https://phillips.com. The digital saleroom is optimized to run on Google Chrome, Firefox, Opera and Internet Explorer browsers. Clients who wish to run the platform on Safari will need to install Adobe FlashPlayer. Follow the links to ‘Auctions’ and ‘Digital Saleroom’ and then pre-register by clicking on ‘Register to Bid Live.’ The

first time you register you will be required to create an account; thereafter you will only need to register for each sale. You must pre-register at least 24 hours before the start of the auction in order to be approved by our bid department. Please note that corporate firewalls may cause difficulties for online bidders. Absentee Bids If you are unable to attend the auction and cannot participate by telephone, Phillips will be happy to execute written bids on your behalf. A bidding form can be found at the back of this catalogue. This service is free and confidential. Bids must be placed in the currency of the sale. Our staff will attempt to execute an absentee bid at the lowest possible price taking into account the reserve and other bidders. Always indicate a maximum bid, excluding the buyer’s premium and VAT. Unlimited bids will not be accepted. Any absentee bid must be received at least 24 hours in advance of the sale. In the event of identical bids, the earliest bid received will take precedence. Bidding Increments Bidding generally opens below the low estimate and advances in increments of up to 10%, subject to the auctioneer’s discretion. Absentee bids that do not conform to the increments set below may be lowered to the next bidding increment. UK£50 to UK£1,000 UK£1,000 to UK£2,000 UK£2,000 to UK£3,000 UK£3,000 to UK£5,000

Conditions Of Sale The auction is governed by the Conditions of Sale and Authorship Warranty which are available on our website. All prospective bidders should read them carefully. They may be amended by saleroom addendum or auctioneer’s announcement. Interested Parties Announcement In situations where a person allowed to bid on a lot has a direct or indirect interest in such lot, such as the beneficiary or executor of an estate selling the lot, a joint owner of the lot or a party providing or participating in a guarantee on the lot, Phillips will make an announcement in the saleroom that interested parties may bid on the lot. Consecutive And Responsive Bidding; The auctioneer may open the bidding on any lot by placing a bid on behalf of the seller. The auctioneer may further bid on behalf of the seller up to the amount of the reserve by placing consecutive bids or bids in response to other bidders.

No Reserve Lots If a lot is offered without reserve, unless there are already competing absentee bids, the auctioneer will generally open the bidding at 50% of the lot’s low pre-sale estimate. In the absence of a bid at that level, the auctioneer will proceed backwards at his or her discretion until a bid is recognized and will then advance the bidding from that amount. Absentee bids on no reserve lots will, in the absence of a higher bid, be executed at approximately 50% of the low pre-sale estimate or at the amount of the bid if it is less than 50% of the low pre-sale estimate. If there is no bid whatsoever on a no reserve lot, the auctioneer may deem such lot unsold. C) After The Auction Payment Payment is due immediately following the auction, unless other arrangements have been agreed with Phillips in writing in advance of the sale. Interest will be charged on late payment at the rate of 12% per annum. Payments must be made by the invoiced party in pounds sterling and may be sent by wire transfer directly to: Bank of Scotland, Gordon Street, Glasgow G1 3RS For the account of Phillips Auctioneers Ltd Account no. 00440780 Sort code: 80-54-01 SWIFT BIC: LOYDGB2LXXX IBAN: GB36BOFS 8054 0100 4407 80 Please reference the relevant invoice number. Alternatively, payment can be made: • For invoices of £30,000 or less by credit card. We accept American Express, Visa, MasterCard and UnionPay (UnionPay for in person transactions only). • It is our corporate policy not to make or accept single or multiple payments in cash in excess of £5,000 for all purchases in any calendar year. Title to each lot will not pass until the buyer has made full payment of the Purchase Price plus any applicable Artist Resale Royalty and all applicable taxes. Collection Once Phillips has received full and cleared payment of the total purchase price for the lot and any other amounts the buyer owes to Phillips, lots will be released for collection. To collect paid for lots buyers (or their authorised representatives) must provide proof of identity. Authorised Representatives should also bring a copy of a letter signed by the buyer authorising them to collect. Smaller items may be collected from our London gallery on the day of the auction. Please check with our staff when making payment. After the auction, lots will be transferred to offsite fine art storage facilities. The buyer information pack you will receive after the auction will confirm details of the storage facility where your lot is held for collection. Please contact us to make arrangements for collection. Storage Charges Lots will be held for collection from our offsite storage facilities for thirty (30) days after the auction free of


Important Notices charge. Storage charges will apply after this 30-day period for any lots which have not been collected. Details of the applicable storage charges will be confirmed to you in the buyer information pack you will receive after the auction. Loss or Damage Buyers are reminded that Phillips accepts liability for loss or damage to lots for a maximum of seven (7) days following the auction. Transport and Shipping We will coordinate with shipping agents instructed by you in order to facilitate the packing, handling and shipping of property purchased at Phillips. Please refer to Paragraph 7 of the Conditions of Sale for more information. As a free service for buyers, Phillips will wrap purchased lots which are for hand carry only. We do not provide packing, handling or shipping services directly. Export and Import Licenses Before bidding for any property, prospective bidders are advised to make independent enquiries as to whether a licence is required to export the property from the United Kingdom or to import it into another country. It is the buyer’s sole responsibility to comply with all import and export laws and to obtain any necessary licences or permits. The denial of any required licence or permit or any delay in obtaining such documentation will not justify the cancellation of the sale or any delay in making full payment for the lot. Endangered Species Items made of or incorporating plant or animal material, such as coral, crocodile, ivory, whalebone, Brazilian rosewood, rhinoceros horn or tortoiseshell, irrespective of age, percentage or value, may require a licence or certificate prior to exportation and additional licences or certificates upon importation to the US or to any country within or outside the European Union (EU). Please note that the ability to obtain an export licence or certificate does not ensure the ability to obtain an import licence or certificate in another country, and vice versa. We suggest that prospective bidders check with their own government regarding wildlife import requirements prior to placing a bid. It is the buyer’s sole responsibility to obtain any necessary export or import licences or certificates as well as any other required documentation. Please note that the US prohibits the importation of any item containing African elephant ivory. Asian elephant ivory may be imported in to the US only if accompanied by independent scientific analysis regarding continent of origin and confirmation the object is more than 100 years old. We have not obtained a scientific analysis on any lot prior to sale and cannot indicate whether elephant ivory in a particular lot is African or Asian elephant. Buyers purchase these lots at their own risk and will be responsible for the costs of obtaining any scientific analysis or other report required in connection with their proposed import of such property into the US. With regard to any item containing endangered species other than elephant ivory, an importer into the US must provide documented evidence of the species identification and age of an object in order to demonstrate that the object qualifies as an antique. This will require the buyer to

obtain an independent appraisal certifying the species of endangered material on the object and certifying that the object is not less than 100 years of age. A prospective buyer planning to import an object into the US may not rely on Phillips cataloguing to establish the species of endangered material on the object or to establish the age of the object and must consult with a qualified independent appraiser prior to placing a bid on the lot. Please note that lots containing potentially regulated plant or animal material are marked as a convenience to our clients, but Phillips does not accept liability for errors or for failing to mark lots containing protected or regulated species. Privacy Our Privacy Policy is available at https://phillips.com or by emailing dataprotection@phillips.com and sets out: (i) the types of personal data we will or may collect and process; (ii) the purposes for which we will or may process your personal data; (iii) the lawful bases we rely on when processing your personal data; (iv) your rights in respect of our processing of your personal data; and (v) various other information as required by applicable laws. Phillips’ premises, sale, and exhibition venues are subject to CCTV video surveillance and recording for security, client service and bid monitoring purposes. Phillips’ auctions will be filmed for simultaneous live broadcast on Phillips’ and third-party websites and applications.

Identification of Business or Trade Buyers As of January 2010, Her Majesty’s Revenue & Customs (“HMRC”) has made it an official requirement for auction houses to hold evidence of a buyer’s business status, due to the revised VAT rules regarding buyer’s premium for lots with symbols for businesses outside the UK. • Where the buyer is a non-EU business, Phillips requires evidence of the business status by means of the company identification, Certificate of Incorporation, Articles of Association or government-issued documents showing that the company exists. • Where the buyer is an EU VAT registered business, Phillips requires the business’s VAT registration number. These details can be scanned and emailed to us, or alternatively they can be faxed or mailed. If these requirements are not met, we will be unable to cancel/ refund any applicable VAT. Electrical and Mechanical Lots All lots with electrical and/or mechanical features are sold on the basis of their decorative value only and should not be assumed to be operative. It is essential that, prior to any intended use, the electrical system is verified and approved by a qualified electrician.


VAT & Tax Guide VAT Depending on the status of the lot, and your status as a buyer, VAT may be charged on the hammer price, the buyer’s premium or both. UK Auctioneer’s Margin Scheme Most items we sell are second-hand goods, so we sell them under UK Auctioneer’s Margin Scheme rules. Lots falling into this category have no VAT symbol and are treated as follows: No symbol

UK Auctioneer’s Margin Scheme sale

20% VAT charged on the buyer’s premium. (The invoiced buyer’s premium will include the VAT).

Special VAT Treatment If the Lot has one of the below symbols, the VAT treatment will be as follows: VAT Symbol

Basis

Treatment

Standard UK VAT rules

20% VAT charged on both the hammer price and buyer’s premium

Imported lot under Temporary Admission (Low rate)

5% import VAT on the hammer price and 20% VAT on the buyer’s premium

Imported lot under Temporary Admission (High rate)

20% import VAT on the hammer price and 20% VAT on the buyer’s premium

Lots sold outside the Auctioneer’s Margin Scheme If the buyer is a relevant business person in the EU (nonUK) or is a relevant business person in a non-EU country then no VAT will be charged on the buyer’s premium. This is subject to Phillips receiving evidence of the buyer’s VAT registration number in the relevant Member State (non-UK) or the buyer’s business status in a non-EU country such as the buyer’s Tax Registration Certificate. Should this evidence not be provided VAT will be charged on the buyer’s premium. Exports from the European Union The following types of VAT may be cancelled or refunded by Phillips on exports made within three months of the sale date if strict conditions are met: • The amount in lieu of VAT charged on the buyer’s premium for property sold under the Auctioneer’s Margin Scheme (i.e., without a VAT symbol). • The VAT on the hammer price for property sold under normal VAT rules (i.e., with a † symbol). The following type of VAT may be cancelled or refunded by Phillips on exports made within 30 days of the payment date if strict conditions are met: • The import VAT charged on the hammer price and an amount in lieu of VAT on the buyer’s premium for property sold under temporary admission (i.e., with a ‡ or a Ω symbol) under the Auctioneer’s Margin Scheme. In each of the above examples, where the appropriate conditions are satisfied, no VAT will be charged if, at or

before the time of invoicing, the buyer instructs Phillips to export the property from the EU. This will require acceptance of an export quotation provided by Phillips. If such instruction is received after payment, a refund of the VAT amount will be made. Where the buyer carries purchases from the EU personally or uses the services of a third party, Phillips will charge the VAT amount due as a deposit and refund it if the lot has been exported within the timelines specified below and either of the following conditions are met: • For lots sold under the Auctioneer’s Margin Scheme or the normal VAT rules, Phillips is provided with appropriate original documentary proof of export from the EU within three months of the date of sale. Buyers carrying their own property must obtain hand-carry papers from the Shipping Department to facilitate this process. • For lots sold under temporary admission, Phillips is provided with the original correct paperwork duly completed and stamped by HMRC which shows the property has been exported from the EU via the UK within 30 days of the payment date. It is essential for shippers acting on behalf of buyers to collect copies of original import papers from our Shipping Department. HMRC insist that the correct customs procedures are followed and Phillips will not be able to issue any refunds where the export documents do not exactly comply with governmental regulations. Property subject to temporary admission must be transferred to another customs procedure immediately if any restoration or repair work is to be carried out. Buyers carrying their own property must obtain hand-carry papers from the Shipping Department, for which a charge of £20 (plus any applicable VAT) will be made. The VAT refund will be processed once the appropriate paperwork has been returned to Phillips. Phillips is not able to cancel or refund any VAT charged on sales made to UK or EU private residents unless the lot is subject to temporary admission and the property is exported from the EU within 30 days of the payment date. We can only process VAT refunds where the VAT to be refunded is £50 or more per shipment. There will be a processing fee of £20 (plus any applicable VAT). Buyers intending to export, repair, restore or alter lots under temporary admission should notify the Shipping Department before collection. Failure to do so may result in the import VAT becoming payable immediately and Phillips being unable to refund the VAT charged on deposit. VAT Refunds from HM Revenue & Customs Where VAT charged cannot be cancelled or refunded by Phillips, it may be possible to seek repayment from HMRC . Repayments in this manner are limited to businesses located outside the UK and may be considered for example for Import VAT charged on the hammer price for lots sold under temporary admission. If you are located in an EU member state other than the UK you will need to apply for a refund of UK VAT directly to your local tax authority. This is done via submission of an electronically based claim form which should be accessed through the website of your local tax authority. As a result,

your form may include VAT incurred in a number of member states. Time limits for claiming VAT refunds • If you are located in an EU member state other than the UK: Any claim must be made on a calendar year basis and submitted no later than 30 September in the following calendar year (e.g., for VAT incurred in the year 1 January to 31 December 2019 you should make a claim to your local tax authority no later than 30 September 2020). Once you have submitted the electronic form to your local tax authority it is their responsibility to ensure that payment is obtained from the relevant member states. This should be completed within four months. If this time limit is not adhered to you may receive interest on the unpaid amounts. • If you are located outside the EU you should apply for a refund of UK VAT directly to HMRC. Claim forms are available from the HMRC website. https://www.gov.uk. You should submit claims for VAT to HMRC no later than six months from the end of the 12-month period ending 30 June (e.g., claims for the period 1 July 2019 to 30 June 2020 should be made no later than 31 December 2020). Please note that refunds of VAT will only be made where VAT has been incurred for a business purpose. Any VAT incurred on articles bought for personal use will not be refunded. Sales and Use Taxes Buyers from outside the UK should note that local sales taxes or use taxes may become payable upon import of lots following purchase. Buyers should consult their own tax advisors.


Conditions of Sale The Conditions of Sale and Authorship Warranty set out below govern the relationship between bidders and buyers, on the one hand, and Phillips and sellers, on the other hand. All prospective buyers should read these Conditions of Sale, the UK Auction Buyer’s Guide, the Important Notices, VAT & Tax Guide and the Authorship Warranty carefully before bidding. 1 Introduction Each lot in this catalogue is offered for sale and sold subject to: (a) the Conditions of Sale and Authorship Warranty; (b) additional notices and terms printed in other places in this catalogue, including the Guide for Prospective Buyers and (c) supplements to this catalogue or other written material posted by Phillips in the saleroom, in each case as amended by any addendum or announcement by the auctioneer prior to the auction. By bidding at the auction, whether in person, through an agent, by written bid, by telephone bid or other means, bidders and buyers agree to be bound by these Conditions of Sale, as so changed or supplemented, and Authorship Warranty. These Conditions of Sale, as so changed or supplemented, and Authorship Warranty contain all the terms on which Phillips and the seller contract with the buyer. 2 Phillips as Agent Phillips acts as an agent for the seller, unless otherwise indicated in this catalogue or at the time of auction. On occasion, Phillips may own a lot directly, in which case we will act in a principal capacity as a consignor, or a company affiliated with Phillips may own a lot, in which case we will act as agent for that company, or Phillips or an affiliated company may have a legal, beneficial or financial interest in a lot as a secured creditor or otherwise. 3 Catalogue Descriptions and Condition of Property Lots are sold subject to the Authorship Warranty, as described in the catalogue (unless such description is changed or supplemented, as provided in Paragraph 1 above) and in the condition that they are in at the time of the sale on the following basis. (a) The knowledge of Phillips in relation to each lot is partially dependent on information provided to us by the seller and Phillips is not able to and does not carry out exhaustive due diligence on each lot. Prospective buyers acknowledge this fact and accept responsibility for carrying out inspections and investigations to satisfy themselves as to the lots in which they may be interested. Notwithstanding the foregoing, we shall exercise such reasonable care when making express statements in catalogue descriptions or condition reports as is consistent with our role as auctioneer of lots in this sale and in light of (i) the information provided to us by the seller; (ii) scholarship and technical knowledge and (iii) the generally accepted opinions of relevant experts, in each case at the time any such express statement is made. (b) Each lot offered for sale at Phillips is available for inspection by prospective buyers prior to the auction. Phillips accepts bids on lots on the basis that bidders (and independent experts on their behalf, to the extent appropriate given the nature and value of the lot and the bidder’s own expertise) have fully inspected the lot prior to

bidding and have satisfied themselves as to both the condition of the lot and the accuracy of its description. (c) Prospective buyers acknowledge that many lots are of an age and type which means that they are not in perfect condition. As a courtesy to clients, Phillips may prepare and provide condition reports to assist prospective buyers when they are inspecting lots. Catalogue descriptions and condition reports may make reference to particular imperfections of a lot, but bidders should note that lots may have other faults not expressly referred to in the catalogue or condition report. All dimensions are approximate. Illustrations are for identification purposes only and cannot be used as precise indications of size or to convey full information as to the actual condition of lots. (d) Information provided to prospective buyers in respect of any lot, including any pre-sale estimate, whether written or oral, and information in any catalogue, condition or other report, commentary or valuation, is not a representation of fact but rather a statement of opinion held by Phillips. Any pre-sale estimate may not be relied on as a prediction of the selling price or value of the lot and may be revised from time to time by Phillips at our absolute discretion. Neither Phillips nor any of our affiliated companies shall be liable for any difference between the pre-sale estimates for any lot and the actual price achieved at auction or upon resale. 4 Bidding at Auction (a) Phillips has absolute discretion to refuse admission to the auction or participation in the sale. All bidders must register for a paddle prior to bidding, supplying such information and references as required by Phillips.

(b) As a convenience to bidders who cannot attend the auction in person, Phillips may, if so instructed by the bidder, execute written absentee bids on a bidder’s behalf. Absentee bidders are required to submit bids on the Absentee Bid Form, a copy of which is printed in this catalogue or otherwise available from Phillips. Bids must be placed in the currency of the sale. The bidder must clearly indicate the maximum amount he or she intends to bid, excluding the buyer’s premium and value added tax (VAT). The auctioneer will not accept an instruction to execute an absentee bid which does not indicate such maximum bid. Our staff will attempt to execute an absentee bid at the lowest possible price taking into account the reserve and other bidders. Any absentee bid must be received at least 24 hours in advance of the sale. In the event of identical bids, the earliest bid received will take precedence. (c) Telephone bidders are required to submit bids on the Telephone Bid Form, a copy of which is printed in this catalogue or otherwise available from Phillips. Telephone bidding is available for lots whose low pre-sale estimate is at least £500. Phillips reserves the right to require written confirmation of a successful bid from a telephone bidder by fax or otherwise immediately after such bid is accepted by the auctioneer. Telephone bids may be recorded and, by bidding on the telephone, a bidder consents to the recording of the conversation.

(d) Bidders may participate in an auction by bidding online through Phillips’s online live bidding platform available on our website at www.phillips.com. To bid online, bidders

must register online at least 24 hours before the start of the auction. Online bidding is subject to approval by Phillips’s bid department in our sole discretion. As noted in Paragraph 3 above, Phillips encourages online bidders to inspect prior to the auction any lot(s) on which they may bid, and condition reports are available upon request. Bidding in a live auction can progress quickly. To ensure that online bidders are not placed at a disadvantage when bidding against bidders in the room or on the telephone, the procedure for placing bids through Phillips’s online bidding platform is a one-step process. By clicking the bid button on the computer screen, a bidder submits a bid. Online bidders acknowledge and agree that bids so submitted are final and may not under any circumstances be amended or retracted. During a live auction, when bids other than online bids are placed, they will be displayed on the online bidder’s computer screen as ‘floor’ bids. ‘Floor’ bids include bids made by the auctioneer to protect the reserve. In the event that an online bid and a ‘floor’ or ‘phone’ bid are identical, the ‘floor’ bid may take precedence at the auctioneer’s discretion. The next bidding increment is shown for the convenience of online bidders in the bid button. The bidding increment available to online bidders may vary from the next bid actually taken by the auctioneer, as the auctioneer may deviate from Phillips’s standard increments at any time at his or her discretion, but an online bidder may only place a bid in a whole bidding increment. Phillips’s bidding increments are published in the Guide for Prospective Buyers. (e) When making a bid, whether in person, by absentee bid, on the telephone or online, a bidder accepts personal liability to pay the purchase price, as described more fully in Paragraph 6 (a) below, plus all other applicable charges unless it has been explicitly agreed in writing with Phillips before the commencement of the auction that the bidder is acting as agent on behalf of an identified third party acceptable to Phillips and that we will only look to the principal for such payment. (f) By participating in the auction, whether in person, by absentee bid, on the telephone or online, each prospective buyer represents and warrants that any bids placed by such person, or on such person’s behalf, are not the product of any collusive or other anti-competitive agreement and are otherwise consistent with federal and state antitrust law. (g) Arranging absentee, telephone and online bids is a free service provided by Phillips to prospective buyers. While we undertake to exercise reasonable care in undertaking such activity, we cannot accept liability for failure to execute such bids except where such failure is caused by our willful misconduct. 5 Conduct of the Auction (a) Unless otherwise indicated by the symbol •, each lot is offered subject to a reserve, which is the confidential minimum selling price agreed by Phillips with the seller. The reserve will not exceed the low pre-sale estimate at the time of the auction. (b) The auctioneer has discretion at any time to refuse any bid, withdraw any lot, re-offer a lot for sale (including after the fall of the hammer) if he or she believes there may be error or dispute and take such other action as he or she deems reasonably appropriate. Phillips shall have no


liability whatsoever for any such action taken by the auctioneer. If any dispute arises after the sale, our sale record is conclusive. The auctioneer may accept bids made by a company affiliated with Phillips provided that the bidder does not know the reserve placed on the lot. (c) The auctioneer will commence and advance the bidding at levels and in increments he or she considers appropriate. In order to protect the reserve on any lot, the auctioneer may place one or more bids on behalf of the seller up to the reserve without indicating he or she is doing so, either by placing consecutive bids or bids in response to other bidders. If a lot is offered without reserve, unless there are already competing absentee bids, the auctioneer will generally open the bidding at 50% of the lot’s low pre-sale estimate. In the absence of a bid at that level, the auctioneer will proceed backwards at his or her discretion until a bid is recognized and will then advance the bidding from that amount. Absentee bids on no reserve lots will, in the absence of a higher bid, be executed at approximately 50% of the low pre-sale estimate or at the amount of the bid if it is less than 50% of the low pre-sale estimate. If there is no bid whatsoever on a no reserve lot, the auctioneer may deem such lot unsold. (d) The sale will be conducted in pounds sterling and payment is due in pounds sterling. For the benefit of international clients, pre-sale estimates in the auction catalogue may be shown in US dollars and/or euros and, if so, will reflect approximate exchange rates. Accordingly, estimates in US dollars or euros should be treated only as a guide. If a currency converter is operated during the sale, it is done so as a courtesy to bidders, but Phillips accepts no responsibility for any errors in currency conversion calculation. (e) Subject to the auctioneer’s reasonable discretion, the highest bidder accepted by the auctioneer will be the buyer and the striking of the hammer marks the acceptance of the highest bid and the conclusion of a contract for sale between the seller and the buyer. Risk and responsibility for the lot passes to the buyer as set forth in Paragraph 7 below. (f) If a lot is not sold, the auctioneer will announce that it has been ‘passed’, ‘withdrawn’, ‘returned to owner’ or ‘bought-in’. (g) Any post-auction sale of lots offered at auction shall incorporate these Conditions of Sale and Authorship Warranty as if sold in the auction. 6 Purchase Price and Payment (a) The buyer agrees to pay us, in addition to the hammer price of the lot, the buyer’s premium, plus any applicable value added tax (VAT) and any applicable resale royalty (the ‘Purchase Price’). The buyer’s premium is 25% of the hammer price up to and including £300,000, 20% of the portion of the hammer price above £300,000 up to and including £3,000,000 and 13.5% of the portion of the hammer price above £3,000,000. Phillips reserves the right to pay from our compensation an introductory commission to one or more third parties for assisting in the sale of property offered and sold at auction.

(b) VAT is payable in accordance with applicable law. All prices, fees, charges and expenses set out in these Conditions of Sale are quoted exclusive of VAT. (c) If the Artist’s Resale Right Regulations 2006 apply to the lot, the buyer agrees to pay to us an amount equal to the resale royalty provided for in those regulations and we undertake to the buyer to pay such amount to the artist’s collection agent. In circumstances where (i) we are on notice that the resale royalty is payable or (ii) we have not been able to ascertain the nationality of the artist, we will identify the lot with the symbol ♠ next to the lot number and will invoice the resale royalty to the buyer. If we subsequently determine that the nationality of the artist does not entitle him/her to the resale royalty on the lot, we will arrange a refund to the buyer of the amount of the royalty paid to us. If, after a sale in which we did not collect the resale royalty on a particular lot, we become aware that information provided to us prior to the auction concerning an artist’s nationality was incorrect and the artist is entitled to the resale royalty on the lot, the buyer shall pay the resale royalty to us upon receipt of an invoice. (d) Unless otherwise agreed, a buyer is required to pay for a purchased lot immediately following the auction regardless of any intention to obtain an export or import license or other permit for such lot. Payments must be made by the invoiced party in pounds sterling as follows: (i) Payments may be made by wire transfer to: Bank of Scotland, Gordon Street, Glasgow G1 3RS For the account of Phillips Auctioneers Ltd Account no. 00440780 Sort code: 80-54-01 SWIFT BIC: LOYDGB2LXXX IBAN: GB36BOFS 8054 0100 4407 80 Please reference the relevant invoice number. Alternatively, payment can be made: • For invoices of £30,000 or less by credit card. We accept American Express, Visa, MasterCard and UnionPay (UnionPay for in person transactions only). • It is our corporate policy not to make or accept single or multiple payments in cash in excess of £5,000 for all purchases in any calendar year. (e) Title in a purchased lot will not pass until Phillips has received the Purchase Price for that lot in cleared funds. Phillips is not obliged to release a lot to the buyer until title in the lot has passed and appropriate identification has been provided, and any earlier release does not affect the passing of title or the buyer’s unconditional obligation to pay the Purchase Price. 7 Collection of Property (a) Phillips will not release a lot to the buyer until we have received payment of its Purchase Price in full in cleared funds, the buyer has paid all outstanding amounts due to Phillips or any of our affiliated companies, including any charges payable pursuant to Paragraph 8 (a) below, and the buyer has satisfied such other terms as we in our sole discretion shall require, including completing any antimoney laundering or anti-terrorism financing checks. As soon as a buyer has satisfied all of the foregoing conditions, he or she should contact us at +44 (0) 207 318

4081 or +44 (0) 207 318 4082 to arrange for collection of purchased property. (b) The buyer must arrange for collection of a purchased lot within seven days of the date of the auction. After the auction, we will transfer all lots to our offsite fine art storage facilities and will so advise all buyers. Purchased lots are at the buyer’s risk, including the responsibility for insurance, from (i) the date of collection or (ii) seven days after the auction, whichever is the earlier. Until risk passes, Phillips will compensate the buyer for any loss or damage to a purchased lot up to a maximum of the Purchase Price paid, subject to our usual exclusions for loss or damage to property.

(c) As a courtesy to clients, Phillips will, without charge, wrap purchased lots for hand carry only. We do not provide packing, handling, insurance or shipping services. We will coordinate with shipping agents instructed by the buyer, whether or not recommended by Phillips, in order to facilitate the packing, handling, insurance and shipping of property bought at Phillips. Any such instruction is entirely at the buyer’s risk and responsibility, and we will not be liable for acts or omissions of third party packers or shippers. (d) Phillips will require presentation of government-issued identification prior to release of a lot to the buyer or the buyer’s authorized representative. 8 Failure to Collect Purchases (a) Lots will be held for collection from our offsite storage facilities for thirty (30) days after the auction free of charge. Storage charges will apply after this 30-day period for any lots which have not been collected. Details of the applicable storage charges will be confirmed to buyers in the buyer information pack they will receive after the auction. Purchased lots will not be released to the buyer until the Purchase Price and all charges have been paid in full. (b) If a purchased lot is paid for but not collected within six months of the auction, the buyer authorizes Phillips, upon notice, to arrange a resale of the item by auction or private sale, with estimates and a reserve set at Phillips’s reasonable discretion. The proceeds of such sale will be applied to pay for storage charges and any other outstanding costs and expenses owed by the buyer to Phillips or our affiliated companies and the remainder will be forfeited unless collected by the buyer within two years of the original auction. 9 Remedies for Non-Payment (a) Without prejudice to any rights the seller may have, if the buyer without prior agreement fails to make payment of the Purchase Price for a lot in cleared funds within seven days of the auction, Phillips may in our sole discretion exercise one or more of the following remedies: (i) store the lot at Phillips‘s premises or elsewhere at the buyer’s sole risk and expense; (ii) cancel the sale of the lot, retaining any partial payment of the Purchase Price as liquidated damages; (iii) reject future bids from the buyer or render such bids subject to payment of a deposit; (iv) charge interest at 12% per annum from the date payment became due until the date the Purchase Price is received in cleared funds; (v) subject to notification of the buyer, exercise a lien over any of the buyer’s property which is in


the possession of Phillips and instruct our affiliated companies to exercise a lien over any of the buyer’s property which is in their possession and, in each case, no earlier than 30 days from the date of such notice arrange the sale of such property and apply the proceeds to the amount owed to Phillips or any of our affiliated companies after the deduction from sale proceeds of our standard vendor’s commission, all sale-related expenses and any applicable taxes thereon; (vi) resell the lot by auction or private sale, with estimates and a reserve set at Phillips’s reasonable discretion, it being understood that in the event such resale is for less than the original hammer price and buyer’s premium for that lot, the buyer will remain liable for the shortfall together with all costs incurred in such resale; (vii) commence legal proceedings to recover the hammer price and buyer’s premium for that lot, together with interest and the costs of such proceedings; (viii) set off the outstanding amount remaining unpaid by the buyer against any amounts which we or any of our affiliated companies may owe the buyer in any other transactions; (ix) release the name and address of the buyer to the seller to enable the seller to commence legal proceedings to recover the amounts due and legal costs; or (x) take such other action as we deem necessary or appropriate. (b) The buyer irrevocably authorizes Phillips to exercise a lien over the buyer’s property which is in our possession upon notification by any of our affiliated companies that the buyer is in default of payment. Phillips will notify the buyer of any such lien. The buyer also irrevocably authorizes Phillips, upon notification by any of our affiliated companies that the buyer is in default of payment, to pledge the buyer’s property in our possession by actual or constructive delivery to our affiliated company as security for the payment of any outstanding amount due. Phillips will notify the buyer if the buyer’s property has been delivered to an affiliated company by way of pledge.

(c) If the buyer is in default of payment, the buyer irrevocably authorizes Phillips to instruct any of our affiliated companies in possession of the buyer’s property to deliver the property by way of pledge as the buyer’s agent to a third party instructed by Phillips to hold the property on our behalf as security for the payment of the Purchase Price and any other amount due and, no earlier than 30 days from the date of written notice to the buyer, to sell the property in such manner and for such consideration as can reasonably be obtained on a forced sale basis and to apply the proceeds to any amount owed to Phillips or any of our affiliated companies after the deduction from sale proceeds of our standard vendor’s commission, all salerelated expenses and any applicable taxes thereon. 10 Rescission by Phillips Phillips shall have the right, but not the obligation, to rescind a sale without notice to the buyer if we reasonably believe that there is a material breach of the seller’s representations and warranties or the Authorship Warranty or an adverse claim is made by a third party. Upon notice of Phillips election to rescind the sale, the buyer will promptly return the lot to Phillips, and we will then refund the Purchase Price paid to us. As described more fully in Paragraph 13 below, the refund shall constitute the sole remedy and recourse of the buyer against Phillips and the seller with respect to such rescinded sale.

11 Export, Import and Endangered Species Licences and Permits Before bidding for any property, prospective buyers are advised to make their own enquiries as to whether a licence is required to export a lot from the United Kingdom or to import it into another country. Prospective buyers are advised that some countries prohibit the import of property made of or incorporating plant or animal material, such as coral, crocodile, ivory, whalebone, Brazilian rosewood, rhinoceros horn or tortoiseshell, irrespective of age, percentage or value. Accordingly, prior to bidding, prospective buyers considering export of purchased lots should familiarize themselves with relevant export and import regulations of the countries concerned. Please note that the US prohibits the importation of any item containing African elephant ivory. Asian elephant ivory may be imported in to the US only if accompanied by independent scientifc analysis of continent of origin and confrmation the object is more than 100 years old. With regard to any item containing endangered species other than elephant ivory, an importer into the US must provide documented evidence of the species identifcation and age of an object in order to demonstrate that the item qualifes as an antique. This will require the buyer to obtain an independent appraisal certify the species of endangered material on the object and certifying that the object is not less than 100 years of age. A prospective buyer planning to import an object containing endangered species into the US may not rely on Phillips cataloguing to establish the species of endangered material on the object or to establish the age of the object and must consult with a qualifed independent appraiser prior to placing a bid on the lot. It is solely the buyer’s responsibility to comply with these laws and to obtain any necessary export, import and endangered species licences or permits. Failure to obtain a licence or permit or delay in so doing will not justify the cancellation of the sale or any delay in making full payment for the lot. As a courtesy to clients, Phillips has marked in the catalogue lots containing potentially regulated plant or animal material, but we do not accept liability for errors or for failing to mark lots containing protected or regulated species. 12 Privacy (a) You acknowledge and understand that we may process your personal data (including potentially special category data) in accordance with our privacy policy from time to time as published at www.phillips.com or available by emailing dataprotection@phillips.com. (b) Our privacy policy sets out: (i) the types of personal data we will or may collect and process; (ii) the purposes for which we will or may process your personal data (including for example the provision of auction, private sale and related services; the performance and enforcement of these terms and conditions; the carrying out of identity and credit checks; keeping you informed about upcoming auctions, exhibitions and special events; and generally where reasonably necessary in the management and operation of our business); (iii) the lawful bases on which we rely in undertaking our processing of your personal data; (iv) your rights in respect

of our processing of your personal data; and (v) various other information as required by applicable laws. (c) Phillips premises and sale and exhibition venues are subject to CCTV video surveillance and recording for security, client service and bid monitoring purposes and will be filmed during the auction for simultaneous live broadcast on our and third party websites and applications. By remaining in these areas, you acknowledge that you may be photographed, filmed and recorded and grant your permission for your likeness and voice to be included in such recordings. If you do not wish to be photographed or filmed or appear in such recordings, please speak to a member of Phillips staff. Your communications with Phillips, including by telephone and online (e.g. telephone and on-line bidding) may also be recorded for security, client service and bid monitoring purposes. Where we record such information we will process it in accordance with our Privacy Policy available at www.phillips.com. 13 Limitation of Liability (a) Subject to sub-paragraph (e) below, the total liability of Phillips, our affiliated companies and the seller to the buyer in connection with the sale of a lot shall be limited to the Purchase Price actually paid by the buyer for the lot.

(b) Except as otherwise provided in this Paragraph 13, none of Phillips, any of our affiliated companies or the seller (i) is liable for any errors or omissions, whether orally or in writing, in information provided to prospective buyers by Phillips or any of our affiliated companies or (ii) accepts responsibility to any bidder in respect of acts or omissions, whether negligent or otherwise, by Phillips or any of our affiliated companies in connection with the conduct of the auction or for any other matter relating to the sale of any lot. (c) All warranties other than the Authorship Warranty, express or implied, including any warranty of satisfactory quality and fitness for purpose, are specifically excluded by Phillips, our affiliated companies and the seller to the fullest extent permitted by law. (d) Subject to sub-paragraph (e) below, none of Phillips, any of our affiliated companies or the seller shall be liable to the buyer for any loss or damage beyond the refund of the Purchase Price referred to in sub-paragraph (a) above, whether such loss or damage is characterised as direct, indirect, special, incidental or consequential, or for the payment of interest on the Purchase Price to the fullest extent permitted by law. (e) No provision in these Conditions of Sale shall be deemed to exclude or limit the liability of Phillips or any of our affiliated companies to the buyer in respect of any fraud or fraudulent misrepresentation made by any of us or in respect of death or personal injury caused by our negligent acts or omissions. 14 Copyright The copyright in all images, illustrations and written materials produced by or for Phillips relating to a lot, including the contents of this catalogue, is and shall remain at all times the property of Phillips and, subject to


Authorship Warranty the provisions of the Copyright, Designs and Patents Act 1988, such images and materials may not be used by the buyer or any other party without our prior written consent. Phillips and the seller make no representations or warranties that the buyer of a lot will acquire any copyright or other reproduction rights in it. 15 General (a) These Conditions of Sale, as changed or supplemented as provided in Paragraph 1 above, and Authorship Warranty set out the entire agreement between the parties with respect to the transactions contemplated herein and supersede all prior and contemporaneous written, oral or implied understandings, representations and agreements.

(b) Notices to Phillips shall be in writing and addressed to the department in charge of the sale, quoting the reference number specified at the beginning of the sale catalogue. Notices to clients shall be addressed to the last address notified by them in writing to Phillips. (c) These Conditions of Sale are not assignable by any buyer without our prior written consent but are binding on the buyer’s successors, assigns and representatives. (d) Should any provision of these Conditions of Sale be held void, invalid or unenforceable for any reason, the remaining provisions shall remain in full force and effect. No failure by any party to exercise, nor any delay in exercising, any right or remedy under these Conditions of Sale shall act as a waiver or release thereof in whole or in part. (e) No term of these Conditions of Sale shall be enforceable under the Contracts (Rights of Third Parties) Act 1999 by anyone other than the buyer. 16 Law and Jurisdiction (a) The rights and obligations of the parties with respect to these Conditions of Sale and Authorship Warranty, the conduct of the auction and any matters related to any of the foregoing shall be governed by and interpreted in accordance with English law. (b) For the benefit of Phillips, all bidders and sellers agree that the Courts of England are to have exclusive jurisdiction to settle all disputes arising in connection with all aspects of all matters or transactions to which these Conditions of Sale and Authorship Warranty relate or apply. All parties agree that Phillips shall retain the right to bring proceedings in any court other than the Courts of England. (c) All bidders and sellers irrevocably consent to service of process or any other documents in connection with proceedings in any court by facsimile transmission, personal service, delivery by mail or in any other manner permitted by English law, the law of the place of service or the law of the jurisdiction where proceedings are instituted at the last address of the bidder or seller known to Phillips.

Phillips warrants the authorship of property in this auction catalogue described in headings in BOLD or CAPITALIZED type for a period of five years from date of sale by Phillips, subject to the exclusions and limitations set forth below. (a) Phillips gives this Authorship Warranty only to the original buyer of record (i.e., the registered successful bidder) of any lot. This Authorship Warranty does not extend to (i) subsequent owners of the property, including purchasers or recipients by way of gift from the original buyer, heirs, successors, beneficiaries and assigns; (ii) property where the description in the catalogue states that there is a conflict of opinion on the authorship of the property; (iii) property where our attribution of authorship was on the date of sale consistent with the generally accepted opinions of specialists, scholars or other experts; (iv) property whose description or dating is proved inaccurate by means of scientific methods or tests not generally accepted for use at the time of the publication of the catalogue or which were at such time deemed unreasonably expensive or impractical to use or likely in our reasonable opinion to have caused damage or loss in value to the lot or (v) property where there has been no material loss in value from the value of the lot had it been as described in the heading of the catalogue entry. (b) In any claim for breach of the Authorship Warranty, Phillips reserves the right, as a condition to rescinding any sale under this warranty, to require the buyer to provide to us at the buyer’s expense the written opinions of two recognized experts approved in advance by Phillips. We shall not be bound by any expert report produced by the buyer and reserve the right to consult our own experts at our expense. If Phillips agrees to rescind a sale under the Authorship Warranty, we shall refund to the buyer the reasonable costs charged by the experts commissioned by the buyer and approved in advance by us. (c) Subject to the exclusions set forth in subparagraph (a) above, the buyer may bring a claim for breach of the Authorship Warranty provided that (i) he or she has notified Phillips in writing within three months of receiving any information which causes the buyer to question the authorship of the lot, specifying the auction in which the property was included, the lot number in the auction catalogue and the reasons why the authorship of the lot is being questioned and (ii) the buyer returns the lot to Phillips to the saleroom in which it was purchased in the same condition as at the time of its auction and is able to transfer good and marketable title in the lot free from any third party claim arising after the date of the auction. Phillips has discretion to waive any of the foregoing requirements set forth in this subparagraph (c) or subparagraph (b) above. (d) The buyer understands and agrees that the exclusive remedy for any breach of the Authorship Warranty shall be rescission of the sale and refund of the original Purchase Price paid. This remedy shall constitute the sole remedy and recourse of the buyer against Phillips, any of our affiliated companies and the seller and is in lieu of any other remedy available as a matter of law or equity. This means that none of Phillips, any of our affiliated companies or the seller shall be liable for loss or damage beyond the remedy expressly provided in this Authorship Warranty, whether such loss or damage is characterized as direct, indirect, special, incidental or consequential, or for the payment of interest on the original Purchase Price.
