The Collection of Robert Stephenson Lots 49 - 56


AsianArt.Waddingtons.ca

The Collection of Robert Stephenson

Bob was born in Brantford, Ontario in 1948. After receiving an honours degree in physics, mathematics and chemistry, he pursued a successful career in banking. In 1980, he was transferred from Vancouver to Asia with the Toronto Dominion Bank, and it was there that he fell in love with Asian art. He began collecting Chinese, Japanese, Thai and Korean pieces, and became particularly enamoured with figures of the Buddha, explaining that they gave him a sense of “peace and serenity”. To accommodate his growing collection, Bob began to sell various pieces, and in 1983 he and a friend, Nonny Clemete, established their company Artifacts. When the bank proposed Bob’s relocation to North America in 1984, he opted to trade in his suit and tie for his signature silk-shirt-and-black-pant ensemble, and focused all of his time on collecting and dealing in Asian art. He expanded Artifacts internationally, establishing showrooms in Hong Kong, Brussels, Toronto and Manila, and also opened a factory workshop in Manila where furniture was produced. Bob’s passion for Asian art was enduring, and despite his success in banking, he asserted that “I know I am much happier this way. Maybe I have to work twice as hard, but I am also having twice as much fun doing what I do.” While he amassed an impressive collection throughout his career, perhaps his most prized piece was the Thai Chien Seng Buddha from the 15th or 16th century (lot 54), which is pictured in the above portrait of Bob by a renowned Toronto artist.

The Collection of Harold Gordon Groves Lots 85 – 120


AsianArt.Waddingtons.ca

The Collection of Harold Gordon Groves Harold Groves was a true collector; passionate, dedicated and curious. He amassed his collection over sixty-five years, and was meticulous in its procurement, operating with the principle that one ought to purchase the highest quality piece they could afford, and then upgrade it whenever possible. He learned as much as he could about the artists and their craft, informing himself through reference books and art texts, which helped enlighten the process of his collecting. He also travelled extensively through Europe and Asia in the 1960s and 1970s, not only to seek pieces, but to learn about the artists, witness their craftsmanship first hand, and immerse himself in the culture that bore the art. Harold became a respected member within the community of collectors, with fellow experts often seeking his advice and guidance. Several pieces of his collection were also displayed in museum exhibits and galleries across North America. Harold’s deep and enduring passion for Asian art was truly inspiring, and motivated his children to build art collections of their own.

180 A BLUE AND WHITE MING-STYLE DISH, QING DYNASTY QIANLONG TO DAOGUANG PERIOD, 18TH/19TH CENTURY 清18/19世紀 乾隆/道光 青花纏枝蓮紋盤 Potted heavily with fifteenth century style rich cobalt blue ‘heaped and piled’ technique of tangled lotus vines, the central medallion with a floral meander enclosing a leafy composite floral scroll, diameter 14.2" — 36 cm. Provenance: Property from a gentleman in a retirement home, Victoria, BC. Gifted in the 1950s from a family member

Note: With carefully controlled bursts of ink resulting in small concentrated pools of paint, the “heaped and piled” method of decoration, as seen in this present example, purposefully recalls earlier 15th century techniques. Although potters had mastered the art of firing and painting underglaze cobalt blue by the 18th century, this stylistic reference, with its bold brushwork and sporadic bursts of ink, served as both a reminder and tribute to the highly prized and admired works of previous dynasties. This style of blue and white lotus dish is very rare. There is one from the Horowitz Collection, Palm Springs, California, before 1972, which was sold at Chrisite’s New York, September 13-14, 2012, lot 1477.

The Scroll Painting Collection of James Clyde Taylor (1889 – 1936) Lots 195 - 203

James Clyde Taylor was born in Crewe, Nottoway County, Virginia in 1889, and studied at the University of Virginia before enlisting in the United States Navy in 1917. During his naval career, Lieutenant Commander Taylor sailed aboard various vessels, with his longest service on the USS Gold Star. This vessel left the United States in 1924, and assumed the role of station

ship at Guam. During the 1920s and 1930s, Lt. Taylor made A letter written by Lt. Taylor’s son to his grandparents while travelling aboard the USS Gold Star with his father, 1927

frequent voyages upon the Gold Star to the ports of China, Japan and the Philippines, delivering fuel and supplies to the garrisons. It was on these voyages that Lt. Taylor became fascinated with the art and culture of Asia, particularly Chinese paintings. He built his collection over a number of years while travelling on the Gold Star, and also when stationed in Guam with his wife and son. He eventually returned to the United States, but continued to explore Asia throughout his life. His passion for Asian art was contagious, and his collection was passed by descent to his grandson, Robert U. Taylor, who is also a fervent collector.

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. 3.

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).
