Fall 2016 Inuit Art Auction

One of the privileges and benefits of being an auction specialist is having the frequent opportunity to meet new collectors, and being granted a brief glimpse into their lives and histories. As an auction specialist, we are exposed to many interesting characters: some collecting out of passion for the art, others acquiring works as relics and reminders of their own experiences either living or travelling in the north. Some inherited their collections from loved ones. Then there are those that know little about the artist or art form, and have simply acquired a work out of pure attraction for the individual object. Over the years, these interactions have instilled in me an immense appreciation for the role the art collector plays both as expert and as visionary.

It can be argued that their contribution is as integral to the art ecosystem as that of the art institution, or the art dealer. Robert Swain acknowledged collectors as “very important to the cultural life of any nation” and that they bring “a wealth of experience, concentrated exposure to the art, a honed vision that separates at a glance the merely unusual from the truly significant”(1). Certainly, the collectors in the following pages of this catalogue fit this description. Aestheticist and academic Francis Sparshott contemplated the nature of the collector and his impact on art, and explained simply that for the collector “serious interest will go to the genres and artists he gets to know well and to love as one loves a friend.” Who among us cannot relate to that sentiment? This is clearly evident when collectors present their pieces to me with as much affection as they would a pet or family member.

We must acknowledge collectors as curators in their own right, for we would not have the exposure to the carefully crafted collections and individual masterpieces that we do now without their expertise. Collecting is not without risk or error, and there are no "sure things" when it comes to acquiring art; and yet even with this knowledge the collector forges ahead. As is the case with many Inuit art collectors, the vision that they share with the world via their buying habits and preferences helps to shape what we have come to know as acceptable or legitimate art, and in a way grants permission to others to follow suit. This catalogue pays homage to those collectors, for it is because of their sensitivity, curiosity and foresight that these pieces have been brought together. I hope you will see the obvious cohesion and complementary elements of these particular collections and even detect a little of the person or people that loved and cared for the works for many years. These people embrace their role as temporary custodians of these fascinating objects and images, and wish above all else for their art to find new homes and admirers when the time comes for them to part with them. I am confident that, from this superb group of collections, all of you, from the veteran to the novice collector and to everyone in between, will find something that draws you in, connects with you on some level and for a time becomes a part of your life.

The Alaska on Madison Collection Lots 13–42 In 1980, Inuit art was just finding its foothold outside of Canada as a collectible art when Hedy Mann opened The Alaska Shop, a small gallery on New York’s Upper East Side. The 360-square-foot shop was among the very first galleries in the United States to specialize in Indigenous Northern art, presenting Inuit art, Northwest Coast art, 19th and 20th century Alaskan art, and art from the Old Bering Sea cultures. Hedy was later joined in the gallery by her husband, Jack Bryan, and together they created an institution. In 1995, the gallery moved to Madison Avenue and was renamed Alaska on Madison. The gallery quickly became a champion of Inuit art and a friend to a number of Inuit artists, including Michael Massie and Abraham Anghik. In November 1983, the gallery hosted the first American exhibition of work by Judas Ullulaq. Located near Fifth Avenue's museum mile, the gallery provided a highly visible showcase for what was then -- in the United States -- an almost unknown art form. Besides displaying sculpture and graphic arts, the gallery became a social hub, and attracted an international clientele and celebrity patrons. In 2011 Ann and Michael Lesk purchased the gallery from the original owners, Hedy Mann and Jack Bryan. It was a natural transition, with the Lesks continuing the gallery's tradition of presenting the top works of Indigenous art, while providing a space where the collector can acquire knowledge and a sense of community within the context of the shared appreciation for this art form. Although Ann and Michael have closed the Madison Avenue premises, their enthusiasm for Inuit art is unabated, and they are continuing Alaska on Madison as an online gallery. Waddington’s and Alaska on Madison have worked together in the development of the Inuit art market for almost 30 years. We are pleased to be offering the following selected works from the historic Madison Avenue gallery.

The Peter J. Landry Collection of Inuit Art Lots 43–79

In the late 1980's, Landry lent a number of pieces from his collection to the Art Gallery of Windsor for their travelling exhibition Sugluk: Sculpture in Stone, 1953-1959. The exhibition was focused on the development of the regional style and themes of Salluit (formerly Sugluk). Landry’s collection was comprised of a great number of works that featured the grey stone native to Salluit. This light-weight stone was well suited to receive the artist's detailed incising and served to create intimate scenes of daily life.

In the catalogue introduction, Michael Neill instructs that one must approach the works without “all the baggage – the mythology of the solitary genius, the rich inventory of theory and art historical fact – that is conveniently brought up to the experience of western art.” Neill continues, “Instead it is the work of a traditional familycentred people who used their hands to look backwards at the very moment they began to be absorbed by the modern world. Homey, often awkward and always modest in scale, it is a simple and direct art of little statement about daily life. A genre art firmly rooted in the last days of a way of life that has now vanished, it is also an important chapter in the birth of contemporary Inuit art.”

Literature: Sugluk: Sculpture in Stone, 1953-1959, page 26 & 31 Note: Mother Sewing by Miaji (Mary) Usaitiajuk Uitangi, “emphasizes the central role of the woman in Sugluk. The sculpture represents a woman mending a child’s parka with thread dried and split from caribou sinew. The arcing rhythmic thread constructs a memorable metaphor of woman as the provider and protector of her children at the center of the world.” This maternal portrait of the altruistic mother and her child empathizes the significance of the role of women and reiterates the regional preference for modest scenes of daily life.

Note: Karoo Ashevak is perhaps the most internationally recognized Canadian Inuit sculptor. Very few works prior to 1970 have been discovered, his main body of work was created during four short years before his untimely death in 1974. His work brought him great joy, Karoo’s sister, Eeteemunga remembered “seeing him working on huge pieces. He was always so full of joy as he worked away on a new piece. He was also so proud of himself. He would pause and study a piece that he was working on... thinking or meditating. Sometimes he would put it aside...and glance at it from a distance... When he finished he would be pouring with sweat and looking joyful and exuberant!”

Like many of Karoo’s works there is a not so hidden narrative behind his carving. This work shows two opposing faces, the first with a joyous expression and a prominent toothy grin, the second clearly expressing distress conveyed humorously as the top tooth is pulled out by a piece of thread (traditional sinew has been used here). Exhibiting many characteristics that indicate his most developed and mature artistic phase, this work is dated circa 1973/74.

Note: Ovilu commented of a similar work during a 1991 interview with Odette Leroux, “right now the bird is my favourite subject to carve. [...] Right now, I like carving birds with the wings spread out. I like to carve the stone very thin on the wings. When I do this, a lot of the stone comes off because I try to take the bulk of the weight off.“ In lot 94, a falcon descends upon its prey, its great carved wings are swept upward to suggest that it was airborne only moments before. Carried out very naturalistically and with great technical ability, this work is surely one of the finest examples of a falcon by the late artist.

Kiugak described the beginning of the story as involving two girls who were playing together. They pretended to have husbands, using the bones of a bowhead whale. One of the bones turned into an eagle: Natturalik.” $7,000—10,000

While in the Arctic, Stone had the opportunity to discover Inuit art and acquired pieces made by many of the artists with whom he’d come to know, or that had been gifted to him during his tenure in the North. One such gift was lot 114 in this catalogue. Stone recounts that one afternoon in Spence Bay in 1988, he asked “Big Charlie” if he would create a carving for him. Ugyuk reached into the pocket of his parka and produced a small polar bear bone carving which he gave to Stone.

The Collection of Dr. Francis Sparshott Lots 125–180

Dr. Francis Sparshott was an academic, a writer and a published poet. He was a University of Toronto Professor of Greek Philosophy, Ethics, and Aesthetics, and later Professor of Philosophy. He befriended Av Isaacs at the Innuit Gallery in Toronto during the 1970s. Isaacs was known to have presented the most interesting works to southern collectors and for exhibiting works now part of major collections and in public institutions. Sparshott did the photography for the gallery in the early years and purchased almost exclusively from Isaacs, often being one of the first to access the many wonderful pieces that crossed the threshold of the Innuit Gallery.

Sparshott had an affinity for acquiring objects of masked beauty, works that at first glance are not easy for the viewer to understand and appreciate. At that time the Inuit art collecting trend was primarily focused on more conventionally beautiful works or the high realism that were more common to those of the Baffin and Nunavik regions. Sparshott, however, seems to have been attracted to the unusual: those works which had depth of meaning or disobeyed the rules of form and expression, which put him well ahead of his time. In this way, he was a leader in the collecting world, unbiased and unaffected by what the majority found to be worthy of praise. What makes his collection all the more interesting is the intersection of Sparshott’s appreciation of Inuit art and his role as a Professor of Aesthetics. We are fortunate then, that as an academic, we have recourse to some of his writings on Art and Aesthetics - including the article “Cold and Remote Art” (Journal of Aesthetics and Art Criticism, 1982) that focused on Inuit art specifically. Sparshott outlines that in the case of Inuit art, it is how one relates to the art form in the structure of one’s own life, a knowledge, like a memory of your hometown, that is “too intimate to be shaken”. And that has more meaning, in fact, than the relationship structure “established by experts for the world at large.”

This collection represents Francis Sparshott’s unique understandings and appreciations of Inuit art, each piece with its own place and meaning in his story and in relation to each other. It is here that one of these pieces will perhaps intersect with a new collector’s own understandings and appreciations. “We value what we feel to be our own, not as possessed but as intimate. We cherish our own families, our clothes, our places, our own art, for the ways they enter into our lives, which are not ours because they are the best lives but because they are the ones we turn out to be choosing to live.” ~ Dr. Francis Sparshott, 1982

Mark Tungilik Mark Tungilik was a happy man. He delighted in his work and was proud of the way he amazed family and friends with the detail of his ivory figures. He took life as he found it, and portrayed it in his work with all its joy, pride, sadness, fear, anxiety and superstition. He was not the most gifted Inuit artist, but, certainly one of the most unique and distinctive. Qualities that have made his work admired and collected all over the world.

Although in his prime he carved beautifully detailed scenes of the hunt, in latter years Tungilik challenged deteriorating eyesight by carving smaller and smaller tableaus, still with humour and incredible detail. Notice the expressions of the three ferocious tiny hunters apparently bracing to grab a single snow goose (lot 145).

Mr. Tungilik seldom described the meaning of his carvings. The explanation of hunters cautiously approaching their game is obvious to us. But some works more linked to Inuit tradition are enigmatic to us and beg interpretation. Part of the enjoyment of his work is to try to provide it.

Of course, the signature piece of this grouping leaves no room for misinterpretation (lot 142). The stone carver looks up in agony as blood gushes from his wound. Perhaps the most unique of all his carvings, this work still leaves questions. Is the blood stream freezing as it falls to the tundra? Does it represent an unfortunate incident from his own past? My guess is yes. But you are free to guess for yourself. That is the fun of this phase of his work. John Cowan, Inuit Art Collector, 2016 collectinginuitart@hotmail.com

Are the two distraught bearded figures apparently searching for something lost on the tundra, mocking reflections of his past experiences with the Christian clergy? (lot 144) And is he himself the proud figure standing beside a totem which could represent the members of his family? (lot 144) A southern woman shuffling awkwardly across the arctic ice carrying a purse would have been a curious sight to him (lot 145). Is this the meaning? It is fun to speculate.

Note: A traditional shaman’s belt was worn by the shaman (angakoq) in everyday life as well as during ceremonies. Its purpose was much like the amulets that people wore for both protection and help from the spirit world. The difference was the types of objects that were suspended and the materials used, such as animal bones and teeth, ribbon or clothing scraps, sinew and carved images or objects. The belts were individualized to the shaman and his helper spirits. Iksiktaaryuk portrayed shamans wearing these belts (see lot 157 in this catalogue) and was clearly inspired by the belts in the fabrication of this exceptional work. Norman Zepp notes, “The amulet belt is an important feature of Iksiktaaryuk’s shamans” and that “the artist, and his community, believed in the angakoq.” In this case, the individual heads are as dramatic as one of his flying shamans, what is not obvious is what significance the number of heads holds or the number of heads in each grouping. Perhaps each grouping is a family within his community. As described in The Inuit Imagination, “Iksiktaaryuk’s carving style was unique; simple but expressive human figures, individually or in groups, carved from caribou antler, a material that is in itself a symbol of birth and regeneration.”

Provenance: Cineplex Odeon Corp., Head Office, 1988, Private Collection, Canada, 1990 Literature: Lee-Ann Martin, Bob Boyer: His Life’s Work, MacKenize Art Gallery, 2008, exh. cat. Deidre Hanna, “Bob Boyer: Saskatchewan Artist’s Wonderfully Witty Blanket Paintings Weave Modernism with tradition,” NOW, 10-16 Nov 1994, 36 as quoted in Bob Boyer: His Life’s Work, pages 55 & 58 Bob Boyer, letter to John Armstrong & Sarah Quinton, 19 July 1991, as quoted in Bob Boyer: His Life’s Work, page 37 Robert Enright, “The Sky is the Limit: Conversations with First Nations Artists – Blanket Approval, the Art of Bob Boyer,” Border Crossing 11, (Dec 1992), page 54 as quoted in Bob Boyer: His Life’s Work, page 46 $4,000—5,000

150

Note: Bob Boyer is Métis with a cultural background influenced by the Assiniboine and Sioux. His works, broadly, speak to notions of a dual cultural perspective of his Native heritage and Western traditions of abstract and contemporary art. Though he worked in a variety of media throughout his career, Boyer is perhaps best known for his series of blanket paintings completed between 1983 and 1995. Boyer elected to use a blanket as his substrate rather than a traditional canvas to address the political issues of First Nations people. In January 1988, the winter preceding the creation of this work, Boyer delivered a presentation in conjunction with the exhibition, Bob Boyer: A Blanket Statement at the University of British Columbia, Museum of Anthropology in Vancouver. Martin comments that blankets are symbolic of a gift that North American Aboriginal peoples hold in high regard. Boyer recounted to author Robert Enright, “I used to help my mother make quilts. Making quilts and giving blankets is important in Plains culture.” In a personal correspondence with John Armstrong & Sarah Quinton, Boyer also stated, “the blanket to me is a symbol of all things that are comforting in the world.” Thus, these works juxtapose the traditional sense of the domesticity associated with a blanket against a vocabulary of modern Western techniques. Reductive and hard-edged geometry – motifs borrowed from the Aboriginal peoples of the northern Plains – in this work are composed with blazing hues on a subversively soft and yielding material which turns the blanket, an object from which one should derive comfort, into something aggressive. The incongruity of its formal qualities reinforces the already compromised idea of the blanket as it relates to Aboriginal populations, which were decimated in alarming numbers by the deliberate spread of the Smallpox virus using contaminated blankets in the nineteenth century. “In 1994, Deidre Hanna remarked that these blanket paintings expand ‘the realm of post-painterly abstraction while acting as an in-your-face reminder of the devastation wrought among Canada’s First Nations. It’s this kind of turn that has earned Boyer a place in most of Canada’s public collections.’”

152

Note: In 1974, the same year she opened her first Canadian gallery that represented First Nations art in Winnipeg, MB, Odjig illustrated Dr. Herbert Schwarz’s Tales from the Smokehouse. In this publication, Odjig created a number of graphic erotica for a compilation of First Nations tales gathered by Dr. Schwarz, who was responsible for introducing Odjig to Picasso. Following a 2008 exhibition of her works at the Canadian Museum of History (formerly the Canadian Museum of Civilization), Odjig commented of the erotically charged images, “People were shocked at the time, although things have changed now. The native community was the least shocked of all, though. We were brought up as children to accept these things. Sexual matters were part of life." In this work, one sees the moment before the ensuing drama: Dancing Light sits and “gravely puffed at his pipe, not knowing what to say” after being visited by Crooked Mouth. Crooked Mouth has come to collect his debts accumulated by the widow’s husband (now Dancing Light’s wife).

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. 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 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).

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.
