Marc Chagall and his Contemporaries P

ridham’s is pleased to offer the important and extensive art collection of Joseph Liverant (1894-1981). This collection includes original works, lithographic posters and related material (books) by Marc Chagall (1887-1985). Most examples are signed and / or signed and dedicated to Mr. Liverant, Also included in this collection are original works by Pablo Picasso, James Ensor, Raymond Moretti and Raoul Dufy. Mr. Liverant, an Ex-Pat of Russian Jewish origin, fled Germany to take residence in Canada during the Second World War. Marc Chagall, an ex-Pat of Russian Jewish origin, was fleeing France and the Holocaust to take refuge in New York City during the war years. In the years following his return to France, Chagall took up residence at his famed home in St-Paul-de-Vence while Liverant purchased a residence in Beaulieu-surMer. Social circles, shared interests, a common Jewish background including speaking Yiddish along with a proximity in age, transpired into a long, congenial relationship. This warm relationship is evident in the numerous dedications made on the lithographs and books that are in this collection. After Liverant’s death, the collection was passed onto his wife Marguerite, and subsequently to his stepson, Mr. Félix Quinet. Mr. Quinet took great pride in his mother and stepfather’s collection, donating many pieces to the National Gallery of Canada. Upon Mr. Quinet’s recent passing, the family has decided to divest the collection through public auction.

Color is all. When color is right, form is right. Color is everything, color is vibration like music; everything is vibration.

- Marc Chagall

To whom it may concern: a note from the Family. The Quinet Family is confident that the original signed artwork supplied to Pridham’s Auction House Inc., is authentic. Our grand-parents, Joseph and Marguerite Liverant, collected art for a considerable period of time. As residents of the South of France, these pieces were stored and displayed in their private residences. The collection of art was moved to Canada in the mid 1980’s, after their deaths. These pieces have remained in the sole possession of our family, for decades. Our father, Félix Quinet, had a decades-long relationship with the National Gallery of Canada. He donated hundreds of Chagall lithographs, beginning in 1986. Other inclusions: a selection of Persian rugs including one designed by Vasily Kandinsky, a few more Chagall posters, an impressive Venetian glass chandelier, a pair of Art Deco ceramic nautical figures by Edouard Cazaux (1889-1974, French), several pieces of fine Venetian glass and Austrian stemware (J&L Lobmeyr Hoffman, 1917) from the Liliane M. Stewart Foundation (Montreal), and several monumental commissioned pieces of fine art work by well known listed Canadian artists from the Canderel-Ottawa Collection.

Hogbin, while remaining embedded in his own region of Owen Sound is recognized internationally by collectors, educators, and professional organizations for his influence in studio wood turning and furniture making. In the early 1970s, he developed a rich vocabulary of alternate forms to the 1000-year-old technique of lathe work. These innovative forms became a keystone to the development of the contemporary domain.

The St. Lawrence River, nature, the immensity of the territory, this is where the essence of the work of Pierre Bourgault has been drawn, who has been transposing their poetry into his artistic installations for more than 50 years. More than sources of inspiration, these creative partners will also have shaped his life. Navigator and committed artist, strongly rooted in his community of Saint-Jean-Port-Joli (Province of QC), where he was born and still lives, the sculptor celebrates the importance of anchoring in the territory, from which stems a singular work, which brings to both its signature and that of the nature that surrounds it. Nevertheless, with Pierre Bourgault, anchoring does not mean closing off from the world and withdrawing into oneself, quite the contrary. According to him, art does not have to be constrained by borders, “culture and poetry are for everyone”. With shipping crate. Estimation 50,000-80,000 $ 63
