It is a pleasure to present Waddington's Fall 2013 Auction of Canadian Fine Art. Highlights of the auction include important works by B.C. Binning, Jean McEwen, Lise Gervais, Cornelius Krieghoff, Paterson Ewen, Kazuo Nakamura, Jean-Paul Lemieux and many others, in addition to strong representation from the Group of Seven and Canada's early watercolourists Washington Friend, Frederic Marlett Bell-Smith and Frederick Verner. We have complemented our classic offerings with rare finds such as a fascinating Florence Vale collage, a synesthetic cityscape by John Clark and one of two existing AP maquettes for Kosso Eloul's "Meeting Place", the monumental sculpture that dominates 160 Bloor Street East in Toronto.   In addition to our Canadian consignors, collectors and estates from the United States and abroad have entrusted us with their property and we have brought you works of art from Tel Aviv, Los Angeles, New England, South Carolina, Paris and the United Kingdom. This auction also marks my return to Waddington’s. Over what is now 25 years of diverse experience in the industry, I am delighted to rejoin a cadre of professionals who share my passion and commitment to providing the best in art – and the auction experience – to our clients. As part of Waddington’s leadership team I look forward to presenting extraordinary Fine Art and to building on our reputation of excellence to bring new and innovative initiatives to our clients. — Linda Rodeck Senior Specialist, Canadian Fine Art Vice President, Fine Art

Since that historic event, Waddington’s has offered some of the most important Canadian works, set record prices, and has been an integral part of driving the Canadian art market.

Waddington’s Asian Art department is Canada’s leader in serving the demands of the rapidly growing Asian market supported by our recognized and credible expertise. Our ability to achieve exceptional prices for works, including the Canadian record for the highest price for an Asian work of art, is based on our international reputation and network with the community.

Concrete Contemporary Auctions and Projects

Decorative Arts

Waddington’s launched its newest division, Concrete Contemporary Auctions and Projects (CCAP) in March 2012 with a vision and mandate to create a secondary market for contemporary Canadian art.

Decorative Arts at Waddington’s encompasses a broad and diverse variety of objects and the department's client database is one of our largest.  From ancient to modern, delicate to deadly, Waddington’s Decorative Arts department redefines the term, bringing much more than traditional silverware and porcelain figurines to market, and with remarkable success.

Concrete Contemporary Auctions merges the worlds of traditional auction and the retail gallery, where our relationships with artists, art dealers, curators and collectors result in exciting new sources of contemporary works. The auctions are tightly focused on Canadian contemporary art since 1980 with an emphasis on mid- and latecareer artists with exhibition history in the private and public sphere. An exciting initiative of CCAP is the launch of our Pop-Up Gallery series in 2013. These short-duration, single artist shows offer works by some of Canada’s most accomplished working artists. Led by one of Canada’s most plugged-in art experts, Stephen Ranger, CCAP is committed to exploring new ways to connect, expand and support the arts community.

Waddington’s reputation for developing new markets is well represented by our Decorative Arts department, as is our ability to present large collections – notable recent sales have included Contemporary Studio Glass, Scientific Instruments and Militaria. The department regularly offers auctions which include bronzes, items of Canadian Historical interest, ceramics, devotional works of art, glass, lighting, militaria, mirrors, objets de vertu, porcelain, scientific instruments, travel and exploration maps.

The combination of our expertise and that of our substantive network ensures the highest standards of authentication and research.

Waddington’s is internationally recognized as one of the leading authorities in marketing Inuit Art. No other auction house has been as intrinsically linked to the development of a market for this art form. Inuit Art is a proud part of our DNA. From our first landmark auction in 1978 of the William Eccles Collection, Waddington’s has offered thousands of works, set record prices, and expanded the market well beyond Canada’s borders.

Original works, photographs, prints and sculpture are offered in our live auctions and online auctions, attracting international clients.

Happy Days, probably executed in the late 1940s / early 1950s, affirms this shift toward something more uniquely her own - something happier, simpler, freer and more rhythmic. $1,500—2,000

Provenance: Collection of Carmen Lamanna, Toronto By descent to the present owner, Ontario Literature: Heather A. Fraser, Paterson Ewen, Critical Works, Works on Paper 1949-92, Art Gallery of Hamilton, 1992, unpaginated. Note: According to Fraser, in 1971 Ewen developed an interest in paper making as an offshoot of his exploration of 18th century Japanese prints. She writes: “In 1973, Ewen began in earnest to paint on handmade paper and in 1975 had an exhibition of his works on paper (that same year)...which sold art.” Fraser quotes reporter Lenore Crawford of the London Free Press: “He’s doing watercolours in a concentrated way as he hasn’t done for years, using beautiful paper he makes himself - proudly - on the paper-making machine in Western’s Fine Art Department.” Fraser continues: “The chance imperfections of recycled materials and bumps which occur during the paper’s drying, suggested a new role for paper as a medium rather than as a support.” It was in the year this work was created that Ewen was elected a member of the Royal Canadian Academy.

29 ALEXANDER YOUNG JACKSON, O.S.A., R.C.A. ECHO BAY, GREAT BEAR LAKE, NEAR PORT RADIUM, N.W.T.

Literature: A.Y. Jackson, A Painter’s Country: the autobiography of A.Y. Jackson, Clarke Irwin & Company Limited, Toronto, 1958, page 151.

oil on canvas signed 22 ins x 28 ins; 55.9 cms x 71.1 cms

Naomi Jackson Groves, A.Y.’s Canada, Clarke, Irwin & Company, Toronto/Vancouver, 1968, pages 212213.

$90,000—120,000

Note: With the support of Eldorado Mining and Refining owners of the Port Radium Mine, Jackson first travelled to the Great Bear Lake area in 1938. He visited again in 1949 (at the invitation of the Department of Resources and Development) and this painting is a result of his second trip. While more recent commentators have been more critical of what they would term “devices of colonial legitimization”, Jackson viewed his interpretation of these sites as a kind of celebration of the gifts of the land during Canada’s industrial development. Jackson Groves captures this well when she writes: “And so living history began to move in this remote spot where the pitchblende had lain waiting for one billion four hundred million years while heat formed rocks and ice gouged them off again up above it. [In the years 1930-1960], [t]he great cycle began: from the silver came the profit to defray the enormous cost of mining the other precious finds; from the pitchblende came radium, a white powder glowing blue in the dark, present in the ratio of one part in three million. (Until La Bine’s discovery, one gram of radium from the Belgian Congo cost seventy thousand dollars.) One by-product of the extraction process was uranium oxide, present in the highest concentration ever mined.” While the mine had been shut down at the beginning of the war, it was re-opened later under the control of the Canadian government as a uranium mine when the atom bomb programme priorized that material. However, in 1960, the mine was closed once again. Jackson wryly observed, “the premises are now used as a luxury camp for millionaires who pay (handsomely) to fish for Great Bear trout.” Echo Bay gets its name from the phenomenon caused by the steep rock cliffs that surround the bay which reflect the sound of human voices off the water.

32 WALTER YARWOOD UNTITLED, 1958 oil on canvas, laid down on board signed 30 ins x 48 ins; 76.2 cms x 121.9 cms $30,000—50,000

Provenance: Collection of the Rynsburger-Rathwell Family Private Collection Literature: Joan Murray, Painters Eleven in Retrospect, exhibition catalogue, the Robert McLaughlin Gallery, Oshawa, 1979, page 11. Iris Nowell, Painters Eleven, The Wild Ones of Canadian Art, Douglas & McIntyre, Vancouver/Toronto, 2010, page 276, cover for a detail of this work and page 288, reproduced in colour. Note: Major paintings by Walter Yarwood comparable in quality to this lot are rare. Yarwood was a self-taught painter working in advertising during the week and painting on weekends. His demanding job in advertising, the responsibility of supporting a family with five children and his concentration on sculpture in the sixties resulted in a relatively small painting output. Joan Murray, in the Robert McLaughlin Gallery catalogue, Painters Eleven in Retrospect, states, “regarding the matter of colour, all the group were involved with analyzing and using colour, though perhaps Cahen and later Yarwood were most successful as colourists.” Yarwood’s talent as a colourist complemented his philosophy on art. Norwell wrote, “In Yarwood’s words, he ‘liked to produce works of beauty out of things I’ve seen and felt in my lifetime,’ rather than having his art convey social comment.”

Provenance: Private Collection, Toronto Note: This classic Canadian scene was used by McLean’s magazine in 1947 for their September 15th cover. This painting is signed twice, probably first to the right and then to the left in order that the signature be more easily noticed by the magazine buying public, for by 1947 Casson’s reputation as one of Canada’s top artists was well-established. The painting may also have had the second signature added by Casson as a kind of insurance policy against over aggressive cropping during catalogue production; note that the second signature (at the left) is slightly higher than the one to the right.

Provenance: Laing Galleries, Toronto Private Collection, British Columbia Literature: A.Y. Jackson, A Painter’s Country: the autobiography of A.Y. Jackson, Clarke Irwin & Company Limited, Toronto, 1958, pages 89-90. Naomi Jackson Groves, A.Y.’s Canada, Clarke, Irwin & Company, Toronto/Vancouver, 1968, pages 152-165 for an extensive discussion of Jackson’s Skeena visit and related drawings. Wayne Larsen, A.Y. Jackson: The Life of a Landscape Painter, Dundurn Press, Toronto, 2009, pages 130-132. Note: Larsen writes: “The Skeena River had long been the home of several Aboriginal communities including the Gitksan people...The arrival of the Grand Trunk Pacific Railway...and discovery of gold in the Yukon [saw a] rapid encroachment of the white world [which] was believed to pose a serious threat to the local Gitksan culture, and it was felt by many...that the old ways had to be preserved before they disappeared completely. [Anthropologist Marius] Barbeau had made several trips out to the West Coast and was well acquainted with the people of the Skeena. In the summer of 1926, he returned to the region...to provide a visual record of the area...inviting Jackson and Edwin Holgate to accompany him. Barbeau was also working on a novel set in the region, The Downfall of Temlaham, and it was hoped that some of the images produced by the two artists might be used to illustrate the book...Jackson...was immediately struck by the creative possibilities in the lush scenery...[and said], ‘The Indian villages are almost as fine as the Quebec villages and the backgrounds more exciting.’” Larsen continues, “Together Jackson and Holgate sketched the small villages, the sacred grave houses, and other aspects of the Gitksan settlements...In October, after several weeks working nearly 320 kilometres upriver, Jackson and Holgate travelled all the way down to the mouth of the Skeena at Port Essington...and there Jackson found the subject that inspired what would become one of his favourite works - Indian Home. Judging from the original pencil sketch, the house appears abandoned, almost lost in the overgrowth of tall grass...placing three figures - a mother and her two children - in front of the tiny house...His figures were rarely more than a few dabs of paint, barely noticeable within the composition. The implication was that they were part of the landscape - an indigenous people rooted to their environment.” Jackson Groves describes the artist’s work from this period as “delectable” and references “several studies of one peaked-roofed house that eventually became the canvas Indian Home...that A.Y. still considers one of his best.”

Detail

In his autobiography, A.Y recalls: “Holgate and I made many drawings of the totem poles around Kitwanga, where Campbell [a CN Railway engineer hired by Barbeau] was straightening them up and setting them in good concrete foundations. For our purposes, we preferred the poles leaning forward or backward, and suggested to Campbell he set them that way. Campbell’s comment on this was brief. ‘I would do anything I could...to please you artists, but as an engineer I cannot put up leaning totem poles. You can make them lean any way you like in your drawings.’”

Exhibited: Kathleen Moir Morris, RCA, Loan Exhibition, Walter Klinkhoff Gallery, Montreal, June 1976, no.4 Literature: Frances K. Smith, Kathleen Moir Morris, exhibition catalogue, Agnes Etherington Art Centre, Queen’s University, Kingston, 1983, page 22. From the 1920s to the 1970s the artist spent two months each summer at Marshall’s Bay near Arnprior at the family cottage. Smith quotes the artist’s nephew thus: “...Kay painted the Elliott cows so often she got to know their daily routine...at the same time every day, say noon, they would wander down to the creek for a drink. Then...they would all amble over to one of their favourite spots for an afternoon rest...Kay was always ready to paint the cows during this lazy period.” Smith adds, “She herself recollected these years in 1976: ‘I love to paint animals. I think cows are just beautiful but they’re awfully hard to paint. They’ve got bumps and lumps. And the flies! They love the smell of paint. They don’t go all over the cows, they go all over you!’” This lot is accompanied by a letter from the artist’s niece describing the subject and dating the painting to circa 1930.

Note: Colour in Depth, the a propos title of the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts’ 1987-88 retrospective of Jean McEwen’s work was the artist’s sole focus for 30 years: the question was how a flat surface could, without the traditional devices of perspective and shading (chiaroscuro), create depth. As early as 1955, McEwen identified an approach that would determine the course of his efforts for years to come. Naubert-Riser explains: “[h]is painting would be closely identified with the two-dimensionality of its support, and the logic intrinsic to the canvas would now determine the organization of its planes.” She continues: “[1963] was a year of significant transition… what can be discerned is a gradual movement away from the dominant vertical composition towards a cruciform structure. The introduction of the cruciform shape onto the pictorial plane allowed the artist to bring into surface evidence an element of support: the cross-shaped struts across which the canvas is stretched. The far corners and their relationship with the central shape became, for a time, the focal point of McEwen’s investigation.” Literature: Constance Naubert-Riser, Jean McEwen Colour in Depth, The Paintings and Works on Paper 1951-1987, Montreal Museum of Fine Arts, 1987, pages 39 and 44.

Literature: Helen J. Dow, The Art of Alex Colville, McGraw Hill Ryerson Limited, Toronto, 1972, page 150, plate 56, reproduced.

openwork 18 carat gold pendant on a chain signed, dated 1972, numbered “2/12”, inscribed “The fox knows many things, but the hedgehog know one big thing” and stamped with the maker’s initials “A.P” (for A. Paton) who worked for S.J. James at this time, on the reverse diameter 1.75 ins; 4.4 cms

Note: Dow notes that the inscription on the pendant is taken from the translation of an ancient Greek proverb used by British philosopher Isaiah Berlin in his book on Tolstoy’s view of history. Dow writes: “Berlin saw Tolstoy as an example of the many-sided and even paradoxical personality which he identified as fox-like, in contrast to the single-mindedness of the hedgehogtype. Perhaps in such a definition of a man who believed one thing but achieved another, Colville recognized himself. Yet, in a much wider sense, his gold medallion demonstrates, like all his other art works, his own consistent awareness of the perpetual human conflict between what there is and what there ought to be.”

Literature: Iris Nowell, Painters Eleven: The Wild Ones of Canadian Art, Douglas & McIntyre, Vancouver/Toronto, 2010, pages 67-68 and page 77, reproduced in colour. Note: This lot was painted the year Painters Eleven was formed. In her book Painters Eleven: The Wild Ones of Canadian Art, Iris Nowell credits this work as being one of the paintings wherein Ronald “...had clearly discovered the painterly vigour he had been searching for.” Nowell considers this painting a turning point for Ronald. She writes that in this composition, “he has adapted calligraphic forms - emphatic black curved shapes to achieve bold visual rhythm. This work features black elements playfully moving against translucent soft orange shapes.” Ronald’s early works were imaginative and technically perfect. His talent was instantly recognized by the New York art community and both the Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Rockefeller family among other prominent collectors purchased paintings by the artist. This lot is an excellent example of Ronald’s early work that was pivotal in establishing his reputation and helped launch his career.

Note: Butlin notes that “Jackson was chosen as the first Canadian to be assigned to duty as an official war artist for the Canadian War Memorials Fund,” which ultimately would employ 116 artists recording Canada’s war effort at home and abroad. She continues, “While [Jackson] rejected the earlier cannon of war painting which tended to romanticize battle in ‘death and glory’ epic paintings, Jackson’s first depictions of the front line were nonetheless picturesque landscapes or sensitive studies,” such as this lot. Butlin adds that during the late winter and early spring of 1918, “Jackson was attached to the 3rd Canadian Artillery Brigade at Lievin.”

Note: Research has identified this work as being listed in a draft of Russell Harper’s unpublished catalogue raisonne of the artist. Harper lists it under “Copies of European Paintings Executed in Paris.” Harper believes it was executed during the artist’s first trip (1844-45) when Krieghoff registered to make copies at the Louvre and Luxembourg. The painting by Biard, on which this work is based, is said to be in the Luxembourg collection (but not confirmed) and is described as a group clustered around a small platform with an actress looking in a mirror held by a man, various actors in costume and an open doorway with soldiers and a building in mid-distance.

Provenance: Private Collection, Ontario Literature: Megan Bice, “Light and Shadow: The Work of Franklin Carmichael”, McMichael Canadian Art Collection, Kleinburg, 1990, page 64, cat. no.74, for a graphite sketch entitled “La Cloche Mountain Tops”, circa 1934. Note: The period during which this work was painted was a significant one for Carmichael. A year earlier he was elected to the Royal Canadian Academy. He also designed and built his La Cloche cottage on Cranberry Lake that same year. In 1937, he became President of the Ontario Society of Artists. This lot could have been based on Carmichael’s studies such as his graphite sketch of “La Cloche Mountain Tops” (circa 1934), which bears a close resemblance to “Summer Landscape”.

Note: Naubert-Riser writes that in early 1964 using the cruciform as his departure point (see lot 47) “McEwen created a key series that was the culmination of all his previous investigations. She continues: “This whole series (The Unknown Flag or Drapeau Inconnu) is notable for its high degree of rigour…McEwen varies and increases the tension between the central form and the four corners. Extremely rich reds dominate the series and are combined, in numerous stratified layers, with mauves, blues and oranges. The intensity of the colour, in conjunction with the rigour of the composition gives rise to a controlled exuberance that is reinforced by the ‘painterly’ treatment of the impasto involving the ‘kneading’ with a trowel of layers of pigments applied over a layer of varnish.” McEwen often applied paint with his hands, forgoing the paintbrush, and worked the surface of the painting until, in the words of one observer, “it seemed to vibrate like a drum”. McEwen himself spoke of “rubbing the colour into the varnish” in order to obtain unique effects of transparency. Only 23 paintings comprise this series.

99 KOSSO ELOUL, R.C.A. MEETING PLACE aluminum maquette in two parts 10.5 ins x 22 ins x 9 ins; 26.7 cms x 55.9 cms x 22.9 cms Provenance: Private Collection, Tel Aviv (by descent) Literature: Paul Duval, Eloul 1964-1984, 20 years of sculpture, exhibition catalogue, 1984, page 9 for a photograph of the sculptor holding a model of Meeting Place, pages 1, 34 and 47 for an installation shot of Meeting Place in situ outside of Crown Life headquarters, Toronto (now Unilever, 160 Bloor St. East at Church Street, Toronto) and page 54 for a photograph of the entrance of 160 Bloor Street East with a life-size mock-up. Note: Russian born Eloul studied at the Art Institute of Chicago (1939-1943) and with MaholyNagy in that city, arriving in Canada in 1964. Quickly establishing his reputation, Eloul produced monumental sculptures in major cities, towns and on university campuses in North America and abroad. In 1984 he was commissioned to produce a sculpture for Crown Life’s new head office in Toronto. Eloul determined that the sculpture should be reminiscent of a gate to a ceremonial path, a monumental entrance not unlike the famous Lion Gate at Mycenae. Paul Duval, who was critical in helping Eloul with the commission, describes Meeting Place - the original Indian name for Toronto - thus: “The poised power of its two counterbalancing elements suggests at once the harmony and diversity that make up the city’s cultural complexion.” $6,000—8,000

Russell Harper, Jack Humphrey: a painter in the Maritimes, exhibition catalogue, National Gallery of Canada, Ottawa, n.d, pages 12-13. Note: Humphrey is known primarily as a figure and landscape painter. Works like this lot are both rare and important to understanding Humphrey’s career arc. Lumsden writes: “Recognizing his need for stimulation offered by major art centres especially in the area of contemporary forms of plastic expression, he applied for a Royal Society Overseas Fellowship offered by the Canadian Government and was successful. In November 1952, he and his wife left for France where they were to remain for the next thirteen months...In his compositions he began to break up the surface by outlining each shape in black thereby flattening it and thus abstracting it. This facilitated the structuring of a work based exclusively on the vocabulary of painting, the employment of the elements of form and colour in a non-associative manner.” Russell Harper writes: “Discontent with a routine pattern of landscape painting, still life and occasional portraiture become evident after the conclusion of the war. Regionalism, with the paintings of street scenes and the waterfront had had valid meaning, but it was now a tired form of expression...Contemporary avant-garde Parisian exhibitions gave Humphrey new confidence in free experimentation...[and since] then, non-objective tendencies have dominated much of his painting.” $2,000—3,000

He wrote to his close friend James Clarke suggesting etching be used “as a running mate for oil and successor of watercolour.” In March of 1931, Milne began work on an etching based on his oil paintings known as Painting Place (various versions) for a book collection quarterly The Colophon founded in 1929. Each issue of the quarterly would include an original work of art and Milne was engaged to produce over 2000 etchings for inclusion in a forthcoming issue. The work was laborious and daunting; Milne could only produce about 40 prints per session. Deadlines came and passed. For his effort, he was paid $400. $1,000—1,500

Conditions Of Sale

1. All lots are sold “AS IS”. Any description issued by the auctioneer of an article to be sold is subject to variation to be posted or announced verbally in the auction room prior to the time of sale. While the auctioneer has endeavoured not to mislead in the description issued, and the utmost care is taken to ensure the correct cataloguing of each item, such descriptions are purely statements of opinion and are not intended to constitute a representation to the prospective purchasers and no warranty of the correctness of such description is made. An opportunity for inspection of each article is offered prior to the time of sale. No sale will be set aside on account of lack of correspondence of the article with its description or its reproduction, if any, whether colour or black & white. Some lots are of an age and/or nature which preclude their being in pristine condition and some catalogue descriptions make reference to damage and/or restoration. The lack of such a reference does not imply that a lot is free from defects nor does any reference to certain defects imply the absence of others. Frames on artwork are not included as part of purchase or condition. It is the responsibility of prospective purchasers to inspect or have inspected each lot upon which they wish to bid, relying upon their own advisers, and to bid accordingly. 2. Each lot sold is subject to a premium of 18% of the successful bid price. 3. Unless exempted by law, the buyer is required to pay Harmonized Sales Tax on the total purchase price including the buyer’s premium. For international buyers, taxes are not applicable when purchases are shipped out of country. Items shipped out of Ontario, the buyer is required to pay taxes as per the tax status of that province, whether it HST or GST (Goods and Services Tax). 4. The auctioneer reserves the right to withdraw any lot from

100

sale at any time, to divide any lot or to combine any two or more lots at his sole discretion, all without notice. 5. The auctioneer has the right to refuse any bid and to advance the bidding at his absolute discretion. The auctioneer reserves the right not to accept and not to reject any bid. Without limitation, any bid which is not commensurate with the value of the article offered, or which is merely a nominal or fractional advance over the previous bid may not be recognized. 6. Each lot may be subject to an unpublished reserve which may be changed at any time by agreement between the auctioneer and the consignor. The auctioneer may bid, or direct an employee to bid, on behalf of the consignor as agreed between them. In addition, the auctioneer may accept and submit absentee and telephone bids, to be executed by an employee of the auctioneer, pursuant to the instructions of prospective purchasers not in attendance at the sale. 7. The highest bidder accepted by the auctioneer for any lot shall be the buyer and such buyer shall forthwith assume full risk and responsibility for the lot and must comply with such other Conditions of Sale as may be applicable. If any dispute should arise between bidders the auctioneer shall have the absolute discretion to designate the buyer or, at his option, to withdraw any disputed lot from the sale, or to re-offer it at the same or a subsequent sale. The auctioneer’s decision in all cases shall be final. 8. Immediately after the purchase of a lot, the buyer shall pay or undertake to the satisfaction of the auctioneer with respect to payment of the whole or any part of the purchase price requested by the auctioneer, failing which the auctioneer in his sole discretion may cancel the sale, with or without

re-offering the item for sale. 9. The buyer shall pay for all lots within 48 hours from the date of the sale, after which a late charge of 2% per month on the total invoice may be incurred or the auctioneer, in his sole discretion, may cancel the sale. The buyer shall not become the owner of the lot until paid for in full. Items must be removed within 10 days from the date of sale , after which storage charges may be incurred. 10. Each lot purchased, unless the sale is cancelled as above, shall be held by the auctioneer at his premises or at a public warehouse at the sole risk of the buyer until fully paid for and taken away. 11. Notwithstanding condition no. 1, if the buyer, prior to removal of a lot, makes arrangements satisfactory to the auctioneer for the inspection of such lot by a fully qualified person acceptable to the auctioneer to determine the genuineness or authenticity of the lot, to be carried out promptly following the sale of the lot, and if, but only if, within a period of 14 days following the sale a written opinion of such person is presented to the auctioneer to the effect that the lot is not genuine or authentic, accompanied by a written request by the buyer for rescission of the sale, then the sale of the lot will be rescinded and the sale price refunded to the buyer. 12. Payment for purchases must be by cash, INTERAC direct debit (Cdn clients in person only), certified cheque (U.S. & Overseas not applicable), travelers cheque, bank draft, electronic transfer (fee applies), and VISA or Mastercard (up to $25,000). As Waddington's requires written authorization for all credit card purchases, credit cards must be presented in person by the cardholder and therefore cannot be accepted over the telephone. However, fax authorization arrangements can be made.

13. In the event of failure to pay for or remove articles within the aforementioned time limit, the auctioneer, without limitation of the rights of the consignor and the auctioneer against the buyer, may resell any of the articles affected, and in such case the original buyer shall be responsible to the auctioneer and the consignor for: (a) any deficiency in price between the re-sale amount and the amount to have been paid by the original buyer; (b) any reasonable charge by the auctioneer for the storage of such articles until payment and removal by the subsequent buyer; and (c) the amount of commission which the auctioneer would have earned had payment been made in full by the original buyer. 14. It is the responsibility of the buyer to make all arrangements for insuring, packing and removing the property purchased and any assistance by the auctioneer or his servants, agents or contractors, in packing or removal shall be rendered as a courtesy and without any liability to them. 15. The auctioneer acts solely as agent for the consignor and makes no representation as to any attribute of, title to, or restriction affecting the articles consigned for sale. Without limitation, the buyer understands that any item bought may be affected by the provisions of the Cultural Property Export Act (Canada). 16. The auctioneer reserves the right to refuse admission to the sale or to refuse to recognize any or all bids from any particular person or persons at any auction.
