Inuit Art Auction – Spring 2014 It is with great pleasure that we present our Spring 2014 collection of Important Inuit Art. Since our inaugural Inuit art auction in 1978, we have watched the growth in popularity and demand for Inuit art with great interest. It is gratifying to see the art form treated with the respect it deserves, and to acquire continued international recognition. We have also noted the shift and broadening of our own client base; Waddington’s diversity provides wonderful crossover opportunities for our clients as the lines blur between what is defined as Inuit, contemporary or Canadian art. Bringing this auction together has been particularly gratifying for several reasons. A key reason – this auction is built almost entirely from private collections. This means we’ve had the privilege to meet and talk with collectors who had a personal connection to the North, people who travelled or worked in the Arctic many years ago. Their unique preferences and experiences are reflected in the art they collected. It will come as no surprise that this auction includes works by the great masters of Inuit art: John Tiktak, George Tataniq, Pauta Saila, Ennutsiak, John Kavik, Joe Talirunili and many others are all well represented in the 350 lots of sculpture, graphics and textiles. And – we are once again pleased to include an ultimate collector’s piece in this auction: a striking version of The Migration by Joe Talirunili. This is the 12th version of the Migration that Waddington’s has been privileged to present. Choosing the cover for the catalogue is sometimes the final stage of catalogue preparation, and sometimes the first. Whenever the right item reveals itself – the cover can almost set the tone for the entire auction. We selected the majestic Hawk by Osuitok Ipeelee to grace the cover of this catalogue not only because it is an important example of Inuit art, but also because it is a true reflection of what makes any work of art compelling and powerful. This auction is filled with wonderful works; we invite you to find something you love. — Christa Ouimet Specialist, Inuit Art

Inuit Art Auction – Monday 2 June 2014 at 6 p.m.

Collections included in this auction

The following collections are included in the auction and indicated with a coloured square. The Balt collection, CA Between the years of 1964 to 1977 the Balts worked as a nurse and a teacher/Federal Government representative in Ivuyivik, Great Whale River and Rankin Inlet. They acquired carvings directly from the artists. Lots from this collection are listed below. 14, 15, 16, 17, 20, 23, 27, 28, 29, 30, 31, 32, 33, 57, 92, 93, 95, 96, 98, 99, 100, 101, 115, 124, 285, 286, 287

The John M. Rogers collection, CA, by descent to present owner John M. Rogers was a prominent broker in the 1950s and 1960s, who underwrote and promoted mining stocks in the Sudbury and Timmins areas. He was a connoisseur and collector with a deep appreciation for the art produced by Canada's Indigenous peoples. The included works of Inuit Art represent a portion of Rogers' collection. Lots from this collection are listed below. 83, 88, 126, 128, 271, 276, 336

Collection of Danish Count and artist, Eigil Knuth, Denmark, Collection of Danish Archeologist and Inuit studies specialist, Jørgen Meldgaard, Denmark, by descent to present owner Heralded by his colleagues as 'Nestor' ('Elder Statesman') of the Danish polar explorers, Count Eigil Knuth's (1903-96) contributions to science were numerous. Arguably his most crucial contribution to the field was the identification of the Independence I & II cultures. These

cultures, which Knuth named after Independence Fjord in Peary land, are immigration waves of Paleo-Eskimo that are separated by nearly 3000 years. Following the war, Knuth organized the Danish Peary Land Expedition, with the first team traveling North in 1947. The following summer, a young archeology student, Jørgen Meldgaard, would join this investigation. Of this trip, Meldgaard stated, "I was deeply fascinated. After this first expedition, I was stuck with Arctic archaeology" Jørgen Meldgaard (1927-2007) joined the research team of Eigil Knuth in 1948. Here the researchers sought to express the cultural connections between the north of Greenland with Dorset and Thule Culture in the Smith Sound region and Arctic Canada. Subsequently, Meldgaard would continue his research throughout the Arctic. In the late 1950s, he took a position with McGill University in preparation for his investigations in Igloolik. Throughout his expansive career, Meldgaard published a number of works, including a co-authored text concerning the three phases of Greenland’s pre-history: Saqqaq, Dorset and Thule. In 1959, Meldgaard declared his fascination with Inuit Art, publishing Eskimo Sculpture.

The John and Mary Robertson collection, CA, by descent to present owner John and Mary Robertson started the Robertson Galleries in Ottawa in 1953 working tirelessly to promote Inuit art to collectors all over the world. They purchased art directly from artists in the Arctic for both the gallery and their own collection. Mary Robertson was director of fine arts at the Canadian Arctic Producers from 1976 to 1979 and marketing consultant for the National Museums of Canada from 1979 to 1981. John Robertson was the administrative officer for the National Gallery and it was during this time that he desired to be more a part of the cultural and aesthetic aspect of the art world. He also was a member of the Canadian Eskimo Arts Council. Their impact as pioneers in the appreciation and understanding of Inuit carvings as art earned them the reputation as having one of the top galleries to exhibit Inuit art. Several pieces included in this auction were exhibited in Selections from The John and Mary Robertson Collection of Inuit Sculpture at the Agnes Etherington Art Centre in Kingston in 1986. Lots from the Robertson collection are listed below. 71, 125, 131, 134, 148, 184, 192, 237, 251, 255, 269, 289, 352

Meldgaard was awarded the Hans Egede Medal of the Royal Danish Geographical Society in 1976 and in 1997, the Greenland Home Rule. In 2003, Meldgaard was given the Erik Westerby Prize - the highest distinction awarded to an archeologist in Denmark. Lots from the Meldgaard collection are listed below. 52, 206, 261

Note: “The Baker Lake printshop made its debut into contemporary graphic art with a catalogue featuring this exciting print on its cover. Geometry, abstraction, design and activated symmetry are all combined to bring out the very real image of a woman in her winter dress. The brilliant colours emphasize the contrasting shades of caribou skin, beautifully assembled to form a traditional design on the parka. With this print Oonark set a style for herself to which she has remained true - strong and explicit use of line, an intelligent positioning of mass and daring choice of colour. [Printer, Thomas] Manik, inspired by Oonark’s splendid drawing, cut the stone and printed the edition with a deep understanding of the subject.” Arts of the Eskimo: Prints, Patrick Furneaux and Leo Rosshandler, Ernst Roch, ed.,1974, pg. 196-7 This image, of a different edition, is illustrated in Jessie Oonark, A Retrospective, Jean Blodgett and Marie Bouchard, Winnipeg Art Gallery, exh. cat., 1986-7, pg. 112, pl. 37 “The influence on Oonark’s prints of her work in appliquéd wall hangings is obvious in this figure, with its broad, flat colour areas. The inset patterns of traditional caribou clothing are formalized in a brilliantly coloured decorative pattern.” The Inuit Print, exh. cat., from the National Museum of Man (Ottawa, ON), 1977, pg. 200-1, pl. 114 $6,000—9,000

Note: This work is a depiction of a significant event that took place during the artist’s childhood. While traveling to new hunting grounds, several families were stranded on an ice floe that split from the mainland. They built an umiak out of scarce supplies and in haste as the ice floe was melting. Some people perished during this tumultuous migration. When the group finally spotted land, it appeared to be drifting away from them therefore one man with a rifle shot at the land to prevent it from moving any further. Some of Talirunili’s versions of the Migration have included a list of the names of the survivors. Although similar due to the subject matter, each boat is unique, the number of people aboard as well as their positioning varies and the occupants have been depicted as owls and hares in other versions of the Migration. For other examples, see Waddington’s auction catalogues, November, 1999, lot 251; November 2001, lot 350; April 2006, lot 236; November 2012, lot 98. Other versions of the Migration are part of the following major collections and coinciding exhibition publications: The Jerry Twomey Collection, Inuit Sculpture from the Canadian Arctic, WAG, Darlene Coward Wight, pg. 36.

Buying at Waddington’s

All lots will be offered and sold subject to the Conditions of Sale which appear in this catalogue as well as any Glossary and posted or oral announcement. By bidding at auction, bidders are bound by those Conditions and Glossary, as amended by any oral announcement or posted notices, which together form the contract of sale between the successful bidder (buyer), Waddington’s and the consignor (seller) of the lot. Descriptions or photographs of lots are not warranties and each lot is sold “as is” in accordance with the Conditions of Sale. Condition of Lots All of the items are to be considered, unless otherwise noted in the description, in good condition. The definition of “good” when used in reference to condition, describes an object as having had no major damage or repair but as with the nature of the material, may show minor surface wear, discolouration etc., which indicates the acceptable wear that the piece may acquire with age. If you are particular about minor flaws, you should examine the pieces in person or have our staff answer any questions before bidding. Sizes are approximate. It is the sole responsibility of the bidder to inquire as to the

128

condition of a lot before bidding. Condition reports are available upon request by phone, fax, email or in person. You are advised to make any requests well in advance of the sale. Frames on artwork are not included as part of purchase or condition. Buyers Premium A premium of 20% of the successful bid price of each lot up to and including $50,000 and 15% on any amount in excess of $50,000 is paid by the buyer as part of the total purchase price. Artfact Live! clients will be charged a buyer's premium of 23% of the successful bid price of each lot up to and including $50,000 and 18% on any amount in excess of $50,000 as part of the total purchase price. A charge of 13% HST (Harmonized Sales Tax) is applicable on the hammer price and buyer's premium, except for purchases exported from Canada. In the case where purchases are shipped out of the province of Ontario, the HST or GST is charged based on the tax status of that province.

Bidding To bid in person at the auction, you must register for a bidding number by showing identification acceptable to the Auctioneer upon entering the salesroom. Your number will identify you if you are the successful bidder. You will be responsible for all lots purchased on your bidding number. Banking information may be requested by Waddington’s. You may submit an Absentee Bid Form if you are unable to attend the sale. Bidding by telephone, in limited circumstances, can be arranged prior to the sale. While we are pleased to offer absentee and telephone bidding as a service to our clients, and take great care in their commission, the Auctioneer will not be responsible for technical difficulties, errors or failure to execute bids. The Auctioneer may also execute bids on behalf of the consignor to protect the reserve. The reserve is the confidential minimum price the seller is willing to accept for his or her property, below which it will not be sold. Absentee Bidders All absentee and phone bidders are required to contact our offices at 416504-9100 to confirm whether they have been successful.

Payment 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), 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. ALL PRICES IN CANADIAN FUNDS

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 20% of the successful bid price of each lot up to and including $50,000 and 15% on any amount in excess of $50,000 as part of the purchase price.

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.

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).
