SOLD: $13,200 This miniature Persian Qur’an was brought to us on Free Appraisal Day. The consignor’s father was a US diplomat who purchased it as a gift for his wife in the 1950s. The octagonal banner box, set with semi-precious stones, contained an octagonal Qur’an with gilt leather covers. At auction, this unique and rare item started a bidding war that far exceeded the consignor’s expectations!

We will make every effort to answer all submitted questions in a timely manner however, we cannot guarantee that a request submitted within 48 hours will be answered prior to the auction date. Neither TPAG nor it’s consignor makes any guarantee or warranty with regards to these reports. It is the buyer’s responsibility to examine each item and make their own assessment prior to the auction. 5) All items are sold for display purpose. If electrical, mechanical

or other working parts are inoperable, even if working at the time of sale, TPAG is not liable due to the inherent nature of the age of antiques and items. 6) Goods made from or containing materials from protected species - TPAG does not accept any responsibility or liability for the sale of items containing materials from protected species or for any omissions in marketing or labeling goods as containing materials from protected species. Such materials include, but are not limited to ivory from elephants and walruses, tortoise shell, crocodile skin, whalebone, rhinoceros horn, some species of coral and certain woods. Restrictions on the importation, exportation, sale, transfer, and/or possession of goods containing materials from protected species derive from international, federal and state laws and regulations promulgated thereunder. It is the sole responsibility of the buyer to research and satisfy the requirements of any laws and regulations that apply to the import and export of property as described in the aforementioned paragraphs. All buyers agree to comply with any and all domestic and international restrictions and licensing on the trade of protected species as a condition of the sale. The inability or delay in obtaining permits, licenses or other permissions to import or export goods containing material from protected species will not constitute a basis for rescission or cancellation of the sale or the delay of payment of purchased items in accordance with these bidder Terms and Conditions of Sale. If you are not able to make what you consider to be a comfortable decision about an item or if you believe an item may be incorrectly described in our catalog, we suggest that you refrain from bidding on said item. RETURNS 7) Items may be considered for return under very specific conditions and within 30 days after the auction. It is important that you pay for and acquire your item in a timely fashion.

Barton was my sons’ babysitter. She really dressed like this. Like Mary Poppins! She’d dress up on Saturdays and take the bus from Lower Merion to Center City to shop at the big stores Strawbridge & Clothier, Lits, Gimbels and John Wanamaker. I’d see her in town sometimes near my studio on Chestnut Street. I asked her to pose. She raised all three of my sons while they were in preschool. She was part of a large Catholic family. She had ten kids of her own. As each one would become school age, she brought in a “new” child from the outside so that she still had ten at home every day. All the outside kids had to be gone before her husband came home from work. He didn’t want her babysitting. She used some of the babysitting money for her Saturday shopping trips into the City.

I painted Tarmen in my studio on Chestnut Street in Philadelphia. They were rebuilding the Schuylkill Expressway, I-76, going west toward the suburbs where I lived. I saw this scene twice each day in the morning and evening rushes, often stopped in traffic, the workers with their BarberGreenes repaving the highway. It had some biblical reference. It was the first time I’d put the archetypal smoke in the distance. The police siege on the Move compound on Osage Avenue in West Philadelphia happened while I was working on the painting. Many homes were lost and folks died. One could see the smoke from all over town. I remember seeing it on my way home on this stretch of highway near Cityline. Although I posed all of the figures indoors in my studio, it was one of the first experiments with placing the narrative outdoors in the open air. Up to that point I’d only done interiors, such as the painting of Barton.

Born in Russia, moving to Moscow in 1914, Kandinsky taught at the Free State Art School from 1918-1921, becoming the head of The Institute of Artistic Culture. Social and familial upheaval led to the Kandinsky family move to Dessau, where he was soon a Master at the Bauhaus School, living (with Paul Klee and his family) in a building designed by founder Walter Gropius himself. This sketch would be from that first year in Germany, where he would remain for eleven years. Shortly thereafter his influence worlwide was cemented when he paired with Guggenheim in NYC. Kandinsky left Germany in 1933 and settled in Neuilly-surSeine outside Paris. He had already seen his work banned and vilified in the Nazi Party’s notorious exhibitions of “Degenerate Art”.
