In the spirit of Daniel O’Neill’s Old Time Dance gracing the cover of our Spring 2015 International Art catalogue, we invite you to share a dance with us after a long cold winter and bring to the podium this carefully chosen grouping of paintings, drawings and sculptures. It is with great pleasure that we announce the whereabouts of a portrait by Pre-Raphaelite master Sir Lawrence Alma-Tadema, having been previously recorded as “present location unknown.” Ernest Gambart, a preeminent member of London society and great patron of Alma-Tadema, commissioned the work in 1870. It is speculated that the sitter is Gambart’s illegitimate child. The portrait travelled from London, England to Montreal sometime after 1913. Following its arrival in Canada, the Watson Galleries sold it to a private collector. A more detailed account of the provenance for this rediscovered work can be found in the following pages. Waddington’s is also pleased to feature an impressive landscape painting by famed Russian/American artist Abraham Manievich. This work was acquired directly from the artist as a result of a friendship forged between the artist and the collector.  On his visits to Canada, Manievich regularly took up residence and painted at the collector’s Montreal home.  Only selected and privileged friends and family invited to the collector’s home were able to view the landscape following its 1937 execution.  This Manievich oil on canvas comes to the market having passed by descent to the collector’s grandson. The above works are offered alongside Berthe Morisot’s drawing Portrait of Alice Gamby, a watercolour by Andre Derain, two bronzes by Sir Jacob Epstein, and an Old Master work from the School of Canaletto. Our Spring 2015 catalogue brings to the fore some of the most significant international art works gleaned largely from private collections. These works have been a delight to research and continue to surprise me.  This journey is the ingredient that has captivated my interest for some thirty-odd years.  — Susan Robertson Specialist, International Art

Note: The present work illustrates the hard edge geometric qualities of his Cubist counterparts but this image is far more representational. Two on-lookers at left gaze out toward a myriad of boats that are made up of deeply saturated colours and flat curvilinear forms. Brilliant whites evoke the glare of sunlight. There is a great energy and sense of activity in the work. The entire scene is dramatically truncated to suggest that the bustle of this harbor continues much further than the confines of the canvas.

384 SWAPAN KUMAR PALLEY (1953-), INDIAN UNTITLED Acrylic on canvas; signed lower right, signed verso 30” x 30” — 76.2 x 76.2 cm. Note: Swapan Palley studied at the Indian School of Arts and Draughtsmanship in Calcutta, continuing his studies under the tutelage of eminent artist, Prokash Karmakar. Palley has been keenly influenced in his career by the cave paintings of Ajanta, constructed in the second century BCE, which are considered masterpieces of Buddhist religious art. His palette takes its cue from the quality of light displayed in the Ajanta works which creates an often dreamlike effect on the paintings, yet his stated intent is to show the range of women’s emotions and experiences. Mythological depictions of women are a consistent theme in Palley’s practice. Of his own works of this subject, the artist has stated, “Women with their simple, soft and graceful characteristics inspire me specially. I cannot resist the temptation of portraying these women’s joy, and sufferings for unfulfilled wishes, love and mystery.” $1,200—1,800

387 SERGEY YURIEVICH SUDEIKIN (SOUDEIKINE) (1883- 1946), RUSSIAN/AMERICAN HEAD OF BLACK MODEL, #64 Oil on canvas; signed lower right, titled and numbered #64 in pencil to the stretcher 14” x 12” — 35.6 x 30.5 cm. $10,000—15,000

388 EMMANUEL MANE-KATZ (1894-1962), UKRAINIAN/FRENCH THE YOUNG RABBI, 1955 Oil on canvas; signed and dated 55 upper right, inscribed in Hebrew “Shlomo Mikolinsky (Mikulinsky), Tel Aviv” verso. Accompanied by the original receipt dated and a Certificate of Authenticity from Galerie Juarez dated April 15, 1967 19” x 14.25” — 48.3 x 36.2 cm. Provenance: Gifted from the artist to Shlomo Mikolinsky, Tel Aviv; Galerie Juarez Inc., Palm Beach, Florida, USA, From whom purchased by the grandparents of the present Private Collection, Montreal Exhibited: This work was exhibited at Galerie Juarez Inc., a one man show of Mane-Katz’s works entitled “HAIFA” in March 1967 Literature: “Mane-Katz One-Man Showing Open At Juarez ‘Midtown,’” Palm Beach Daily News, 17 March 1967, p. 5, illustrated $10,000—15,000 Note: Shlomo Mikolinsky (Mikulinsky) was the owner of a very famous and elegant footwear establishment in Tel Aviv. “In his YOUNG RABBI he portrays on canvas a red-headed Jewish rabbi filled with wonder and inner contentment of his religion. His paintings of rabbis have become very successful and are the most in demand.” Mane-Katz became a French citizen in 1928 and is considered one of the leaders of the Jewish School of Paris. This work is a

superb illustration of Mane-Katz’s mature style, characterized by a bright and primary coloured palette with an emphasis on Hassidic themes and characters. Here, a contemplative young rabbi sits with his face partly cast in a soft shadow. His steady gaze from deep sockets looks toward an unknown light source at left that sets aglow his skin and blazing red hair. All around him are sweeping brushstrokes that compose his garments and background. This whirl of paint serves to contrast and thus reinforce the sitter’s gentle and contemplative demeanor.

389 ALEXIS GRITCHENKO (ALEXEI VASILYEVICH GRISHCHENKO) (1883-1977), UKRAINIAN MAN SEATED BY THE SEA Oil on panel; signed lower right 15.75” x 20” — 40 x 50.8 cm. $8,000—12,000

Provenance: Private Collection of Gloria Kupchenko Frolick and Stanley Frolick; By descent to their daughter; By descent to her son, Private Collection, Toronto Note: Alexis Gritchenko was a Ukrainian born painter, graphic artist and art historian who travelled extensively throughout Europe, Asia and the United States. He participated in exhibitions from 1909. Gritchenko’s work can be found in various museums and private collections, more than three hundred of them in the United States and Canada. The Alexis Gritchenko Foundation was formed in New York in 1958 to preserve Gritchenko’s artistic legacy. A clashing of figuration and abstraction, this painting depicts the real world but the viewer is ever conscious of the paint and lines applied to the flat surface. Gritchenko has locked his image into a frenzied throng of shape and colour that paradoxically seems to heave and swell before becoming immutable. The curves and bends of the land in the foreground are echoed in the radiant sea. Scores of vertically stressed brushstrokes play off the clear horizontals of the thirdly divided image. In this energetic painting, readability evaporates in favour of an eruption of colour. One can sense the laborious effort the artist underwent to broker a resolution between the two-dimensional and tangible world.

390 CONSTANTIN TERECHKOVITCH (1902-1978), RUSSIAN LADY IN A HAT Oil on canvas; signed and dated 53 upper left, signed by the artist in ink on a label to the stretcher 25.75” x 20” — 65.4 x 50.8 cm. Note: This work is at once a testament to Terechkovitch’s artistic bravura: a beautiful and serene portrait of a woman that seems to palpitate with liveliness. The subject for this work evokes a sense of traditionalism, skillful portraiture that holds its roots in traditional Western art, but Terechkovitch’s use of colour presents something entirely novel. The sitter is composed with broad strokes of bold colours that appear to almost have been squeezed directly from the tube. Despite the spontaneity implied by the audacity of his paint handling, Terechkovitch has skillfully crafted the image.

391 ERNST NEIZVESTNY (1926- ), RUSSIAN HANDS HOLDING MASK Bronze with red/brown and green/black patination; signed “E. Neiz“ and numbered 1/9, titled to the original receipt accompanying the lot. Raised on a black laminated stand. Height of bronze 18” — 45.7 cm.

Red chalk on laid paper laid down twice with partially visible six-point star and crown watermark to the original sheet or the first laid down sheet; bears signature and inscribed: “fec. Sebastiano del Piombo” in pencil lower left Sheet 14.75” x 9.75” — 37.5 x 24.8 cm. Provenance: “Spillane” inscribed verso Note: The lines of this master draughtsman illustrate an obvious command of the red chalk medium. Composed of crosshatches and thick and thin lines, the sanguine strokes are carefully descriptive marks rendered with thought. Confident lines are smudged to soften contours and create shadow. Though the actualized painting for this study is hitherto unknown, it is clear that the artist is attempting to analyze the poses of his figures so that they may be composed with the utmost realism. $5,000—7,000

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.
