Remembering Milan — 1925–2018

right: Marti Friedlander Milan Mrkusich 1981 (detail) gelatin silver print, toned with gold 2000, Auckland Art Gallery Toi o Tāmaki, gift of Marti Friedlander, with assistance from the Elise Mourant Bequest, 2001

It is with great sadness that Webb’s acknowledges the recent death of Milan Mrkusich, one of New Zealand’s mostrespected abstract artists. Mrkusich began painting abstraction in the 1940s, at a time when most other New Zealand artists were entirely focused on landscape and regionalism. Over the decades his pioneering exploration of abstraction, through geometry and colour, was influential and inspiring for other artists, such as Gretchen Albrecht, Julian Dashper and Shannon Novak. Mrkusich is represented in all of New Zealand’s major public collections. In 1972 and 1985, he had major exhibitions at Auckland Art Gallery and, in 2010, at City Gallery Wellington. Three important commissioned works can be seen in Auckland: at St Joseph’s Catholic Church, Grey Lynn see his vivid stained glass windows and murals (1958-60), a mural on the facade of the old BJ Ball Paper building on Graham Street, central Auckland (overlooking Fanshawe Street), and the recently revealed glass mosaic at

WE BB’S

WB001 Design 32pp_FA.indd 12

85 Fort Street - once the Chelsea Sugar Refinery building. Te Papa Tongarewa commissioned Mrkusich to create the mural of coloured enamelon-glass spandrels along the length of the Cable Street facade. Mrkusich’s contribution to painting was honoured with a New Zealand Order of Merit award in 1997 and he was one of the first 10 artists to be acknowledged by an Arts Foundation Icon Award in 2003. Art historian Michael Dunn had this to say: “Mrkusich’s works do encourage a silent consideration of the painted image rather akin to meditation. They are not works that release their significance immediately but, rather, over a period of time, maybe years. They are painted to repay contemplation, to allow return visits or, if you are lucky enough to own one, a daily interaction that never fails to deliver an emotional response.”

Eyes on the Prize — Auckland Art Gallery Toi o Tāmaki until Jan 2019 Happily, The Walters Prize 2018 is on at the same time as is the exhibition of its namesake, artist Gordon Walters (Gordon Walters: New Vision) at Auckland Art Gallery. The Prize exhibition shows outstanding projects by Ruth Buchanan, Jacqueline Fraser, Jess Johnson with Simon Ward, and Pati Solomona Tyrell. An international judge will name the $50,000 award-winner in November. The Walters Prize was established in 2002 by founding benefactors and principal donors Erika & Robin Congreve and Dame Jenny Gibbs, together with Auckland Art Gallery Toi o Tāmaki, with the intention to make contemporary art more widely recognised and debated. Over a two-year period, an independent jury of curators and artists researches national and international exhibitions to nominate four finalists whose work is recreated for display at the Gallery. This years jury considered over 30 projects by New Zealanders here and abroad. In announcing the finalists they stated ‘Our selection includes work that expands ideas of sex, gender and ritual; installations exploring the legacies of feminism; and an immersive work that embraces and pushes technologies of moving image and animation.’ All of which sounds like the issues and experiences that dominate our life in 2018. The New Zealand Herald described the four projects as ‘multi-sensory, bright and lively’ and noted ‘the nominated artists clearly want viewers to be actively involved with their work’.

Call of the Wild — The Wildlife Photography of David Yarrow

Webb’s is pleased to represent Scottish-born photographer David Yarrow in New Zealand. He is known for his evocative and immersive photography of life on earth, which has earned him an ever-growing following amongst international art collectors. His large monochrome images made in Los Angeles are on display in many leading galleries and museums across Europe and North America. By 2017, he had firmly established himself as one of the best-selling fine art photographers in the world, with his limited-edition prints (just 12 in an edition) regularly selling for more than $40,000 a piece.

However, philanthropy and conservation are central to Yarrow’s passion to document the animal and human worlds in a fresh and creative way. In 2017, charitable donations from the sale of his images exceeded $1.2 million. His approach to photographing wildlife is guided by Robert Capa’s assertion that “if your pictures aren’t good enough, you’re not close enough”. When possible, Yarrow takes his photographs of dangerous wildlife using a remotecontrolled camera, acknowledging that a photographer can achieve perspective by capturing shots that look up at the animal from the ground. For more information on these works by David Yarrow, please contact Amanda Morrissey-Brown, Webb’s Fine Art Department.

Movers & Shakers Rhana Devenport, director of Auckland Art Gallery Toi o Tāmaki (AAG), is continuing her list of firsts by becoming the first woman director of the Art Gallery of South Australia, Adelaide, in its 137 years. When appointed to AAG in 2013, she became the gallery’s first woman director in 126 years. Rhana brought excellent exhibitions to Auckland, such as Lee Mingwei and His Relations, and to the world through Lisa Reihana’s exhibition at Biennale Arte 2017 in Venice. She supported an active publishing programme of monographs on New Zealand artists. Alongside the major exhibitions, she secured a series of highly engaging family projects with artists such as Yayoi Kusama and Alfredo and Isabel Aquilizan. Webb’s wishes her every success for the future.

Blair Jackson became director of Christchurch Art Gallery Te Puna o Waiwhetū (CAGTPOW) in April, after serving as deputy director for a number of years, including during the earthquakes. He states: “I’m incredibly proud of what this gallery has achieved over our ‘earthquake years’… but even more excited about our future. CAG has always been innovative in the ways it has communicated with audiences, from the award-winning Bulletin, to commissioned art projects and events in and around the building and city during the earthquake years. It is so good having the gallery open again after being closed for five years but we’ve only just begun. There’s so much more that we want to do.” We are looking forward to the new directions Blair will surely bring. Courtney Johnston, director of The Dowse Art Museum (and Hutt Museums), has been appointed to the newly created role of Director of Audience and Insights at Te Papa Tongarewa. Courtney has run an imaginative and influential programme

De

at The Dowse, including Wunderrūma: New Zealand Jewellery and the current exhibitions, Embodied Knowledge and Can Tame Anything, which feature work by two generations of contemporary women artists, coinciding with the ‘Suffrage 125’ celebrations. We are hoping that Courtney continues to build audiences and insight through her entertaining and popular Instagram and Twitter accounts, and as a Radio New Zealand arts commentator! Canada has a major new art museum but it’s not in Toronto, Montreal, Ottawa or Vancouver. Instead, the striking glassand-steel Remai Modern has opened in the remote prairie town of Saskatoon, located in the vast agricultural mid-west. Its director is well-known New Zealand director and curator Greg Burke. The opening exhibition of collections and desired acquisitions and artists’ projects, and including work by New Zealand artist Luke Willis Thompson, was envisioned as a sort of road map. It might read like a mishmash of artists yet, according to one reviewer, “it works. It is a triumph of imagination.” Burke’s intention for the museum, reported in Artforum International, is that it will “affirm the powerful role that art and artists play in questioning, interpreting and defining the modern era. It aims to be an imaginative and prescient museum and a leading centre for contemporary Indigenous art programming.” The Gallery has been generously supported by local philanthropist and namesake Ellen Remai who recently pledged C$1 million annually for art purchases for the next 25 years. The Frank and Ellen Remai Foundation’s total pledged contributions amount to C$103 million. Remai Modern has been recognised architecturally, and popularly – visitor attendance in the first six months exceeded the estimates for the opening year. Congratulations Greg!

Oceania

Royal Academy of Arts 29 Sept— 10 Dec 2018

The year is 1768 and Britain is in the throes of the Age of Enlightenment. As a group of artists agrees to found the Royal Academy, Captain James Cook sets sail on a voyage of discovery in search of Terra Australis Incognita – the unknown southern continent, as Europeans called it. What Cook and his crew encounter on arrival is a vast number of island civilisations covering almost a third of the world’s surface: from Tahiti in Polynesia, to the scattered archipelagos and islands of Melanesia and Micronesia. Marking 250 years since Cook’s first voyage to the Pacific, the Royal Academy celebrates the dazzling and diverse art of the region of Oceania, from the historic to the contemporary. Oceania brings together around 200 exceptional works from public and private collections worldwide, and will span over 500 years. From shell, pounamu and ceramic ornaments, to huge canoes and dazzling house facades, it explores important themes of voyaging, place-making and encounter. The exhibition draws from rich, historic ethnographic collections dating from the 18th century to the present, and includes seminal works produced by contemporary artists, exploring history, identity and climate change. Ten of New Zealand’s leading contemporary artists will be exhibiting: Mark Adams, Yuki Kihara, Mata Aho Collective, Fiona Pardington, Michael Parekowhai, John Pule and Lisa Reihana.

Turner Prize

Tate Britain 26 Sept 2018 – 6 Jan 2019

Londo Opening on 26 September at Tate Britain is the 34th edition of the oftencontroversial Turner Prize. One of the four finalists is New Zealand-born Luke Willis Thompson, selected for his moving video autoportrait, 2017, presented first at Chisenhale Gallery, London, and, recently, in New Zealand at Adam Art Gallery, Wellington. In July 2016, Diamond Reynolds broadcast live via Facebook the moments immediately after the fatal shooting of her partner, Philando Castile, by a police officer during a traffic-stop in Minnesota. Thompson invited Reynolds to work with him to produce an aesthetic response that could act as a ‘sister image’ to her broadcast, breaking with the wellknown image of Reynolds caught in a moment of violence, which had circulated widely online and in the news.

Frid Ma He

autoportrait is a portrait of Reynolds’ grief but is also intended as a balance or counterpart to Reynolds’ own video. Thompson’s silent, filmed portrait of Reynolds was made during a period of uncertainty between the charging of the officer who killed Castile and the subsequent trial. Forensic Architecture, Naeem Mohaiemen and Charlotte Prodger are the other finalists. The winner will be announced in December.

Frida Kahlo: Making Herself Up V+A until 4 Nov 2018

Sotheby’s Auction 12 Nov 2018

The exhibition presents an extraordinary collection of personal artefacts and clothing belonging to the iconic Mexican artist Frida Kahlo, one of the most recognised and significant artists and women of the 20th century, and explores how she fashioned her identity. It displays her clothes and intimate possessions, reuniting them with key self-portraits, films and photographs to offer a fresh perspective on her compelling life story. Working in close collaboration with Museo Frida Kahlo, the display includes more than 200 objects: Tehuana garments and embroidered shawls, letters, jewellery (some pre-Columbian), cosmetics – including her favourite lipstick, Revlon’s ‘Everything’s Rosy’, and red nail varnish – medicines and her handpainted medical corsets. All of these were discovered in 2004, 50 years after being sealed in the Blue House by her husband Diego Rivera, the Mexican muralist, following her death in 1954. A review in The Guardian noted: “Everything about Kahlo was courageous. She was a revolutionary, a passionate lover, a bold artist... It’s fascinating to compare her few selfportraits in the exhibition with the many photographs of her on view. Kahlo, you realise, made herself less beautiful in her paintings than she was. She painted an inner self, not her exterior appearance.” from top: Frida Kahlo in blue satin blouse, 1939. Photograph Nickolas Muray © Nickolas Muray Photo Archives

This event is all the world of jewellery is talking about right now! The fabulous collection of royal jewellery is made up of diamonds, natural pearls, sapphires and other gems. Pieces come from several generations of the BourbonParma family (at various times, kings of France, Spain and Austria) but, most exciting, includes some jewellery owned by Marie Antoinette, Queen of France. In 1792, when revolution was imminent, the Queen sent her jewels back to her brother, the Emperor of Austria, in Vienna for safekeeping. The Queen was beheaded in 1793 but her daughter escaped and received the jewels on her return to Austria; subsequently, they were passed down through the family line. Highlights from the collection include Marie Antoinette’s pearl and diamond pendant, diamond necklaces and tiaras, diamond drop earrings and ruby brooches. These will be exhibited on a ‘worldwide’ tour and can be seen in Germany in September, then in London, New York, Hong Kong and Geneva, before the 12 November 2018 auction in Geneva.

Stretching from Iraq to Hawai’i, the exhibition will feature a wide range of art forms and give particular focus to artists exploring the ongoing presence

of spirituality in digital times, the multiple ways that wealth, value and labour operate, the agency of the body, and concerns for others as well as the vulnerability of the natural world. New Zealand artists included in APT9 are Kushana Bush, Gavin Hipkins, Anne Noble, Lisa Reihana, Peter Robinson, The Kiribati Project led by Chris Charteris, and Areta Wilkinson. APT9 always has terrific public programmes including interactive artworks for APT Kids developed in collaboration with exhibiting artists. There will be a two day symposium on the opening weekend.

QAGOMA James Turrell’s Night Life

As the sky shifts to dusk, James Turrell’s Night Life 2018 illuminates the Gallery of Modern Art from within. Through shifts in tempo, hue and intensity of colour, the artist invites us to consider how we are affected by light. A decade after the opening of GOMA, this dynamic work realises the architects’ vision of animating the building’s façade at night. For more than half a century, James Turrell (United States, b.1943) has worked with light and space to create immersive and moving artworks that play with viewers’ perceptions.

Sun Xun

MCA Australia until 14 Oct 2018

Sun Xun is one of China’s most exciting young artists, best known for his animations made up of thousands of ink paintings, charcoal drawings and woodcuts. Containing very little dialogue, these handmade films use combinations of image, sound and text to raise questions about what we perceive as truth and explore the slippery dynamics of memory, history, culture and politics. The works often highlight the absurd incongruities between authorised histories and personal recollections, and

WB001 Design 32pp_FA.indd 28

are particularly concerned with the ways in which history can be manipulated, by official narratives from public agencies, politicians and the media, and moremarginalised accounts that stem from ordinary people’s experiences. “I’ve made beautiful works and ugly works. I have ferocious pieces, but also very gentle ones. I talk about politics but I also talk about time. I talk about Chinese politics and Western politics. Everybody thinks that in China you have to be a dissident, critical of the government, but I’ve been to Western

countries and seen many things that are laughable. Those have become equal sources of inspiration,” the artist recounted to Sydney Morning Herald critic, John McDonald. The exhibition at the MCA includes myriads of drawings on newspaper, exquisite ink painting on handmade mulberry paper screens, animations and an installation of woodcut paintings, made with glow-in-the-dark pigment lit by ultraviolet light.

The National Gallery of Victoria, in partnership with The Museum of Modern Art, New York, presents MoMA at NGV: 130 Years of Modern and Contemporary Art. With over 200 key works arranged chronologically into eight thematic sections, the exhibition traces the development of art and design from late-19th-century urban and industrial transformation, through to the digital and global present. The emergence of a ‘new art’ at the dawn of the 20th century is represented by some of MoMA’s earliest acquisitions, including masterworks by Vincent van Gogh, Paul Gauguin and Paul Cézanne. The pioneering cubist and futurist artists, including Pablo Picasso and Umberto Boccioni, appear alongside the radically abstracted forms of artists Lyubov Popova and Piet Mondrian. Also included are the surreal paintings by artists

like Salvador Dalí and Frida Kahlo, and the spontaneity and tactility advanced in works by Alexander Calder and Jackson Pollock. Art from the 1960s, from pop to minimalism, is explored with the work of Roy Lichtenstein, Andy Warhol, Lynda Benglis and Sol LeWitt, among others. Significant artworks of the late-20th and early-21st centuries, including pieces by Cindy Sherman, Keith Haring, Kara Walker, Rineke Dijkstra and Huang Yong Ping, foreground ideas such as those around cultural and national identity, and mobility in a globalised world. Throughout the exhibition, works of visual art are displayed alongside objects from MoMA’s Architecture and Design collection, many of which draw out concerns common to architects, designers and artists.

W EBB’S

Abdul Abdullah is a name to commit to memory. Born in Perth as a seventhgeneration Australian, Abdullah and his artistic practice embody a necessary confrontation to the politicisation of identity and mixed identity in our current political and social climate. As a Malay, Muslim and Australian man, Abdullah directly relates to the sense of otherness experienced in Western society by minority groups. It is this part of his identity, and how it causes others to treat him, which provides the impetus for his work. Conciliation (Of Self) 2015, Reconciliation (Of Self) 2015 and Restitution (Of Self) 2015 are three works from a wider series titled Coming to Terms, currently included in the exhibition Diaspora: Exit, Exile, Exodus of Southeast Asia at MAIIAM Contemporary Art Museum, Chiang Mai, Thailand. This exhibition holds the only other complete set of these three works, the remaining five editions and two artist proofs are dispersed between private and public collections with no other editions available. Coming to Terms is a series Abdullah created as a response to the negative reactions ignited by an earlier series tilted Siege. The title refers to a ‘siege mentality’, a state of mind where an individual feels constantly under attack; an affliction suffered by many marginalised and minority groups, particularly young Muslims growing up in a post 9/11 society. In this suite of three works, all selfportraits of the artist, Abdullah literally holds the reality of the reactions to

S E PT E M BE R 2 01 8

his previous series in his hands in the form of Aky the Malaysian monkey. Aky is a rescue monkey from Abdullah’s mother’s home village who was unable to be reintroduced to the wild. Abdullah stands before the viewer masked by the subhuman projections imposed on minority groups in a calm and tender moment of reconciliation with the reactions of the Siege works. The titles of Abdullah’s works are just are as important as the images themselves which are highly theatrical and draw on a reciprocal engagement and relationship with the audience. In 2009 Abdullah received a Highly Commended in the National Youth Self Portrait Prize at the National Portrait Gallery in Canberra and was named a Perth Rising Star by Insite Magazine. In 2010 Abdullah was included in the inaugural Triple J list of 25 Under 25 + Smashin’ It. In 2011 he was a recipient of Kickstart funding for the 2012 Next Wave Festival, was selected as a finalist in the 2011 Archibald Prize and won the Blake Prize for Human Justice. His work is included in the collections of the National Gallery of Australia, the University of Western Australia, Murdoch University, The Islamic Museum of Australia and The Bendigo Art Gallery. Most recently his painting I wanted to paint him as a mountain, of Aboriginal artist and activist Richard Bell, was selected as a finalist in the 2014 Archibald Prize. Abdullah was also shortlisted for the 2019 Venice Biennale. Amanda Morrissey-Brown

15 Drawings - December ‘51 to May ‘52 is presented here as sixteen individually, archival framed lithographic prints. McCahon originally created the work in 1951 as a series of fifteen ink on paper drawings. This piece was then given to poet, friend and patron Charles Brasch in exchange for funding McCahon’s career-altering trip to Melbourne earlier that same year. After Brasch’s death, the hand-bound volume was gifted to the Hocken Library at Otago University. In 1979, in an attempt to allow McCahon’s work to be more accessible to the public, a series of copies were made. As a result, we offer this exquisitely framed series, which through their visual depiction of the life of Christ, give the viewer an intimate snapshot of McCahon’s thoughts and artistic enquiries during the 1950s.

Delicately resting on her raised pedestal, the geometric female form of View Over the Vineyards is reminiscent of an abstract line drawing by Pablo Picasso. Modelled in semi relief, the work juxtaposes the formal qualities of linear rhythm as the elegant lines of her form flow down from her distant gaze and drape themselves over the minimalist cube she rests on. Large seated figures have appeared in Dibble’s oeuvre since the mid-1990s, a period where Dibble created straight and extended forms that were gestural to the point of surreal. Dibble has expressed a longstanding interest in the human body throughout his practice, composing his figures of simple geometric shapes. However since 2004, Dibble’s figures have gradually become softer and more curved, a development clearly expressed in View Over the Vineyards. While male figures appeared more prominently in the beginning of Dibble’s series of seated figures, female forms emerged as the series developed. Initially, the male figures referenced studies of the Napoleonic wars created by Francisco Goya. Goya depicted towering figures sitting in quiet contemplation, looking down from a hillside on the atrocities taking place below. Originally commissioned for the Christensen Estate Winery on Waiheke Island, which has since closed, View Over the Vineyards embodies a softer, more guardian-like figure, observing the expansive landscape and casting a watchful eye over the vineyard. Dibble frequently makes use of narratives and icons from New Zealand and the Pacific, incorporating aspects of native flora and fauna into his pieces. For View Over the Vineyards, leaves similar to the cultivar of the winery were modelled to adorn the figure’s hair. Amanda Morrissey-Brown

14 Peter Robinson Painting 1999

oil and acrylic on unstretched linen canvas 2140mm x 4870mm $220,000 – $280,000**

Peter Robinson is easily one of New Zealand’s highest profile, blue chip artists, having (with Jacqueline Fraser) represented the country at its first invitation to participate in the Venice Biennale in 2001. He is Associate Professor at Elam School of Fine Arts at the University of Auckland. Of Ngāi Tahu descent, the first major phase of his practice frequently, and with plenty of ironic humour, explored his own emerging understanding of his Māori identity, having been born and grown up in one of the most unequivocally Pākehā parts of the country around the South Island town of Ashburton. This important work, Painting 1999 comes right at the tail end of that first phase. It visually dominates in a minimal palette of red, black and white that evokes traditional Māori kowhaiwhai and pre-Second World War political branding, and takes a deliberately naïf form, part constructivist propaganda, part patchwork quilt, and an allusion to the agricultural landscape of the mid-Canterbury of the artist’s childhood, his tūrangawaewae (place to stand). There is a Jimmie Durham-esque selfconscious and ambivalent irony there, a playful approach to the vagaries of authenticity and identity that marks a generation of young Māori artists, along with Shane Cotton and Michael Parekowhai, who emerged at the beginning of the 1990s into postmodern art practice. The painting seethes with pop culture, art history and the half-digested fragments of the national Id frozen in time. “For Sale” signs suggest a selling out of values, the selling off of Māori land, the roadside sign-like qualities of the late work of Colin McCahon, and the percentages hint – half seriously, half tonguein-cheek – at the politics of indigenous blood percentages and legitimacy under the Treaty of Waitangi.

The shapes that resemble incomplete and neutered swastikas are likewise many-layered, mixing Gordon Walters’ koru with that most infamous symbol of white nationalist genocidal racism, to form a stylised aeroplane (the Pākehā waka). It is surprisingly aggressive compared with much of his later work, but leavened with a laid back, non-threatening sense of humour about it all comparable to the self-aware and carefully coded comedic strategies of the late Billy T. James. The full force of the work hits the eye like a wave, but the jokes stand out – “Wharehouse” punning on the ubiquitous discount retail chain and the Māori word for “house” – literally “house house”, “Dirt Cheap” is a pun on parsimonious Waitangi Tribunal reparations, “A Wee Gem” perhaps refers to Tūhoe prophet Rua Kenana’s hidden diamond-guardian of the land. It’s political, but not intimidating or angry because the artist wants you to listen, and there’s a lot to unpack. Painting 1999 is a significant piece of New Zealand art history, an example that is particularly representative of these many threads of Robinson’s interest, in play at least since the Hangover exhibition in 1996, and probably since he graduated from the University of Canterbury School of Fine Arts in 1988. His work is ever evolving, changing and investigating. Here you get the impression he’s about to tie off all those loose ends to explore the next phase of his practice, coinciding with the point in time where he felt he had been typecast as a Māori artist and an “identity artist” and was looking for new, more formal and conceptual horizons of 1960s postminimalist sculpture and arte povera to explore. Robinson’s work has been exhibited widely in New Zealand and internationally. Aside from the Venice Biennale, he has participated in many international biennials and touring exhibitions. He won the Walters Prize in 2008 for his exhibition ACK at Artspace, Auckland. In 2016 he was made a Laureate of the Arts Foundation of New Zealand. Andrew Paul Wood

acrylic on paper inscribed signed bottom right Gordon Walters 1978 in graphite verso 450mm x 340mm $80,000 – $95,000 PROVENANCE Private Collection EXHIBITED Art Basel Hong Kong, 2014

For this letter see William McAloon, ‘Introduction,’ Gordon Walters: Prints + Design, pp. 9-10.

In March 1978, Gordon Walters’ Wellington dealer Peter McLeavey was approached by the New Zealand Wool Board for a design proposal for a wall hanging from one of his artists. The Board aimed to produce 1000 woven wall hangings based on the design by the chosen artist to then be distributed to their clients. McLeavey suggested that Walters submit a design and the following month Walters acknowledged in a return letter that the Wool Board was using the design that he had sent them.1 Untitled (1978) is a version of that design. The agglomeration of koru forms at the base of the composition, and the single red horizontal band a fifth of the way down from the top, all fit with an image that would become a larger and freehanging composition. The result would have been striking and iconic, like the Film Commission logo Walters delivered a year later, however, in the event, the Wool Board did not go ahead and produce the 1000 wall hangings it had promised. The Board’s Chief Officer later wrote to Walters that the transfer of his image “was not entirely satisfactory” and that “we all felt the simplicity and clarity of your design was lost.”2 The Board, established in 1944, was eventually dissolved in 2002 and the original design was sold at auction as part of its assets soon afterwards. Nevertheless, Walters was obviously pleased with the design he had produced in 1978 as he also

made this version for himself to keep. It remained in his possession and then that of the Walters Estate until recently. It differs from the original submission only in the placing of the horizontal red band which is now situated slightly lower down. Perhaps Walters had rethought the original placement of the horizontal band? Or perhaps for the format of his own smaller acrylic on paper he felt this ‘looked right’ as he used to say? Walters’ purposeful juxtaposition of opposing visual elements (red band and jostling koru forms) are so placed that they engage and eventually steady the mind. The ‘empty’ or black void space between functions to push our line of vision up and down. Our eyes latch onto one, then the other form, and the natural tendency for vision to converge in the middle is thwarted. It is as if the painting is forcing our looking apart, letting darkness and space rush in to fill the yawning void that opens up. The physical sense of gravity (it was for a wall ‘hanging’ remember) is ultimately keyed to the perfect yet mysterious balance of the painting’s foundation koru which are locked in a dance. Walters’ image is perfect not by reason of what it may mean but by reason of its distinctness, its emptiness, the ferocious boundedness of its imagining of a meeting of two elemental forms.

18 Ralph Hotere Black Painting

Renaissance art historian Giorgio Vasari recounts the following tale. The Pope sent an ambassador into Tuscany to find the best available artist to work in the Vatican. After collecting examples of the work of painters in Siena, he came to Florence and Giotto’s workshop. When he asked Giotto for a sample of his art to be sent to the Pope, Giotto took a piece of paper and a brush and, holding his arm firmly against his side in order to make a compass, proceeded to make a perfect circle in red paint. The courtier, disappointed, left convinced he had been duped but when the Pope saw Giotto’s drawing, and was told that it had been made without the aid of a compass, he appreciated the excellence of what Giotto had painted and hired him. There is something about the circle and the circular that is so emblematic of painting that the quest for the perfect circle has haunted art history from its beginning. For physicists a circle is formed when a system finds an equilibrium at a minimum energy level. Using a similar argument, Gestalt perceptual psychologist Rudolf Arnheim (The Power of the Centre, 1982) has written of how the spatial organisation of all artworks is made up of two dynamics (in the sense of attraction or repulsion), which he calls centricity and eccentricity. Ralph Hotere’s shiny, thin, perfect, purple circle on matte black acrylic in Black Painting (1969) — painted with a compass we need to admit — is in equilibrium, it both centres and is eccentric. Hotere’s circle paintings of the late 1960s are themselves centred on three important artistic sources: Jasper Johns’ targets of the mid-1950s where Johns transformed the familiar image of a target into a tangible object by building up the surface with wax encaustic so that its concentric circles become less precise and more tactile. And Kenneth Noland’s circle paintings of the mid1950s, which were not targets, like Johns’, but abstract circles of blazing colour intensified by the circular format centred in square canvases. As they spun off their centres they seemed

free of gravity, not to be read as solid substance. The third source for Black Painting lies in Hotere’s knowledge and admiration of the work of Ad Reinhardt. (Hotere had cited a lengthy quotation from Reinhardt in his Zero Exhibition catalogue of paintings shown at the Barry Lett Gallery in 1967.) A ‘centric’ Reinhardt strived in his canvases for a superlative matte-ness that prevented any possible light reflection, as if in fear of interference from the phenomenal. A ‘centric’ Hotere painting on canvas, Black Painting (1969) revels in a pictorial flatness that absorbs your gaze into its dark centre. Only the thinly painted purple line stands out against the infinite and disappearing black but, if you look hard, you can see the faint traces of concentric ripples as almost indistinct circles complete themselves inside the purple circle. “See whether it is understood or not,” was the message Giotto sent to Rome with his painted circle, and there it was “so perfect it was considered a miracle.” Hotere’s challenge to us is to ‘understand’ the formlessness of form. As always, Hotere celebrates, like no other painter except perhaps McCahon, the limited virtues of black acrylic paint, density and fluidity. Through the moonless night sky of blackness his purple circle resonates like a twinkling halo lighting the way. No wonder Black Painting was chosen to ‘represent us’ at EXPO 70 in Osaka, and seeing it again I was reminded of lines from a poem by Bill Manhire who collaborated extensively with Hotere, providing the words that became building blocks for his pure abstract designs.

‘Poem beginning with a line by Ralph Hotere’ The wind is blowing the year away. The painter is holding a lamp. Light fills the canvas, day after day. Our eyes do dark adaptation. The world takes shape but will not stay. Laurence Simmons

19 Milan Mrkusich Study: Untitled Red acrylic on canvas signed Mrkusich, inscribed Study: Untitled Red and dated 1994 in graphite verso 840mm x 915mm $20,000 – $30,000 PROVENANCE Purchased from Sue Crockford Gallery

W EBB’S

Milan Mrkusich’s almost seventy-year career was unusual among New Zealand abstract painters. He did not make his name by stopping painting in its tracks and setting off in a new direction. There is no emblematic Mrkusich invention, like a Richard Killeen cut-out or an Ian Scott lattice. No point where you can say, “There, that has changed things.” Nevertheless, he is one of the most profound abstract painters New Zealand has known. Mrkusich spent his career converting the rule-ridden zone of minimalist abstraction into a capacious yet disciplined place, reconnecting it to its roots in Abstract Expressionism. He is not a minimalist, which is a label lazily attached to him, although moments and parts of his painting register the historical logic of minimalism, its debunking of pictorial illusion and the realist rhetoric of landscape. He starts out with van Doesburg and De Stijl but in the end the painters who mattered the most to Mrkusich’s slow maturation were the abstract expressionists like Rothko not the modernists. His work exudes a similar smouldering emotion that might be called passive expressive. It gives the lie that any art can be purely formal and completely abstract. He pursued the transition in the mind of sensation into feeling, an idea that is seemingly romantic, but one that Mrkusich observed with a monkish discipline as he forged a knowing of himself by forgetting himself in painting. But he never forgets painting as a physical object. Mrkusich displays, as he does in Untitled Red, bits of the frame, or its corners as he does in another one of his best series. The device runs the risk of seeming gimmicky, and it often is with other artists, but not with Mrkusich whose dense planes of colour simply emphasise to the exclusion of all else the obtrusive fact that most paintings shape and frame background colour. He then brings these forward and makes them unavoidable. Mrkusich’s abstractions progress from one idea of structure, proportion, colour, light and surface to another, and his

trajectory encompasses a tremendous range of emotional energy and deep thought. Looking at these paintings takes work. They attract and disassociate at the same time. Things are happening everywhere on the surface. In this way Mrkusich introduces the element of time into his work. His paintings are to be viewed episodically, time after time, without resolution ongoing. On first encounter they create sensations not yet transformed into feelings, a dance-like meditation in which viewers immerse themselves in visual experience by examining, from various distances, the subtle ways the marks and the pulsating ground work together. Because of this required ‘phenomenology of seeing’ we might characterise his work as ‘slow painting’. He seeks balance but his equilibriums are not standard. Look at how Untitled Red ‘breaks’ its frame at the top and lower left. He asks you as viewer to find your own equilibrium through a contemplative viewing. And so his painting is a sounding board for the spirit that resonates, complicated but also very simple, elemental even. (‘Elements’ was the title of a Mrkusich series of the 1960s). You get the image gradually as the previous layers of colour beneath the surface emerge and resonate. Mrkusich explores the malleability of pictorial space, how to shape it into a visual logic and how to make the plasticity and oddness of geometric forms relate to our emotional experience. American philosopher and art critic, Harold Rosenberg, who first described Abstract Expressionism as ‘action painting’, once declared: “The modern painter begins with nothingness. That is the only thing he copies. The rest he invents.” It is a sentence we might readily apply to Mrkusich. Mrkusich’s art is an emigrant art, his parents arrived from Croatia in Dargaville where he was born seeking, as only emigrants do, the undefinable place of origin, the moment before everything began.

Continuously, furiously, his paintings restage the commonplace, unhouse the ordinary, and return us, changed, to the places we dwell in. – Justin Paton, “Bill Hammond’s Apocalyptic Wallpaper,” in 23 Big Pictures1

Bill Hammond’s imagined New Zealand may contain landscapes of urban alienation and suburban neurosis, but these public and private spaces are also haunted by a uniquely local strain of gothic folk surrealism. It is a bewildering presence, and one that promises an alternate and ecstatic reality in parallel. In Hammond’s world it’s a wild, wild life. In Wild Life Quiet Life, Hammond’s domestic interiors are infused with the pleasures and pitfalls of the everyday, and echo the interior of the mind. On one hand, they are spaces of retreat: a man in an armchair rests his feet on the table either side of a television set. On the other, these private spaces are also groomed and presented for the public: a figure with triangular legs and torso vacuums the floor. Both the elongated vacuum cleaner and the floor are painted in an iridescent gold. A quiet life full of wealth and material comforts may be suggested. Yet as one might expect with Hammond, things are never that simple. This important early painting in Hammond’s considerable body of work also contains expansive, spartan landscapes which serve as theatres for strange, mythic narratives performed by a cast of humanoid figures, repurposed cartoon characters and fantastical beasts. Here the public and private, material and psychic, real and imagined rub up against each other. In one frame of this comic strip-like array a cat plays with a ball of string, while in another it appears as a corporate authority figure in a business suit. The term ‘wildlife’ traditionally refers to animals which are not

S E PT E M BE R 2 01 8

domesticated, but has now come to include all plants and other organisms which grow or live wild in an area. The artist’s diverse catalogue of species also includes those introduced by humans; some to Aotearoa by waves of European colonists, such as the rabbit and the cat. In contrast to his active and anthropomorphised cat figure, a rabbit lies on the ground beneath a chain fence. The fence itself floats as a fragment in space – signalling protection, containment and captivity. Hammond works directly on wallpaper, its glossy sheen and texture embedded in the painting’s surface as it buckles and warps beneath a palette of fluid black, white, red and gold. The painting’s support manifests as a kind of undulating topography, echoed in the torn strips’ lateral orientation across the wall. If one reads a playful ambivalence towards consumerist materialism in the work – and a questioning of art’s implication in these tendencies – it may be most salient in the artist’s use of wallpaper. Writer and curator Justin Paton put it well: ...Hammond belongs to a generation for whom modern art was as likely to appear on the bedroom walls or curtains...as anywhere more august. So why couldn’t fabric or wallpaper, in their turn, form a chassis for strange new art? Why couldn’t the patterns with which he grew up be stretched and deranged to tell a truth about interior life, about that feeling of being protected by the very thing that holds you captive? Gathering and fusing the richest threads in his work hitherto – the tipped and vertiginous perspectives, the maze-like partitions, the spatial reverb, the volatile merging of figure and ground, the filigree beauty of his draughtsmanship – Hammond launched his own range of obsessive decor.2 Emil McAvoy

Painted by Hotere at the height of the Cuban Missile Crisis, Polaris is an early example of the wider Polaris series which he began while living in Vence, France. Initially consisting of only ten works, this was the first series by Hotere to directly address the anti-nuclear movement. Polaris boldly displays the date 10.62 in the bottom right hand corner, an extremely poignant detail and reflective of the great uncertainty the world faced at that time. Hotere’s initial influence for the Polaris series was the stationing of the Polaris Submarine by the United States at a newly established base in Scotland, sparking dramatic but successful protests which received wide media coverage1. October 1962 saw the international tension between the U.S.A, Cuba and Russia peak as the imminent threat of nuclear war plagued the world. Russia had taken threatening action and installed nuclear missiles in Cuba. The ensuing political stand-off

65

held the world’s attention. This event became the catalyst for the mistrust that festered between the Soviets and the United States during the late 60s and throughout the 1970s Cold War Period. Polaris is a work highly representative of Hotere’s personal insight and great concerns for world safety. Without doubt this work, and the wider series, presents a bold statement from a New Zealand artist engaging with and reflecting upon the anti-nuclear movements in both New Zealand and the United Kingdom. The work also demonstrates Hotere’s move towards abstraction and his increasing concentration on the application of paint. With Hotere’s focus moving towards abstraction, there is no modelling of forms present in this work to create an illusion of space, there is only literal layering of paint to create spatial depth2.

29 Fiona Pardington Kererū Wings, Waiheke 2010

archival photographic ink-jet print 970mm x 2920mm overall $55,000 – $65,000 NOTE This large version, the only edition in this size, was made for the On Origins of Art exhibtion held at the Museum of Old and New (MONA), Hobart, Australia, November 2016 - April 2017

There is something heraldic about this diptych by one of our leading photographers, Dr Fiona Pardington (Ngāi Tahu, Kati Mamoe and Ngāti Kahungunu, MNZM and Chevalier de l’ordre des Arts et des Lettres); the way all the focus is on the magnificent wings of New Zealand’s native wood Pigeon (Hemiphaga novaeseelandiae) and the body almost incidental. It is a beautiful image at an unusual scale and has found appreciative audiences having previously been shown in the major exhibition On the Origins of Art at MONA, Hobart in 2016/17. Birds are something of a speciality for Pardington, they are symbolic messengers between the heavenly and terrestrial realms and have deep spiritual significance for her. They speak to her love of nature and the unique wildlife of Aotearoa New Zealand, and her environmental concerns. The female kereru is, for her, a maternal symbol for her as a mother. This particular work however, though aesthetically exquisite, is also a traumatic work for the artist, a memento mori as Pardington recalls: It was the first Kererū death by window I’d ever experienced, both Jack [her son] and I were just crying. The kererū died as I held it. I took her upstairs to wrap her in a pretty piece of fabric before burying her and noticed how her wings fell and witnessed for the first time up close the absolute radiance, the miraculous wing colours. They were hard to comprehend. I cried as I took the photographs, as I thought “how can I put you in the ground without remembering you?” It was a moment’s decision. I spread her out in the sunroom, and took a few photographs, I was too upset to take many. It was spur of the moment really. It was brutal hearing her thud in to the glass, and the dander leaves an eerie mark, I felt so guilty.

The iridescent winds of the kererū respond well to Pardington’s technique of drenching her still life subjects in intense lights of various kinds at once, absorbing, refracting and reflecting the different wavelengths and throwing back magical, saturated colour. In the traditions of some iwi, the trickster demigod Māui transformed himself into the first kererū in order to learn what his mother Taranga did when she vanished each morning. One evening Māui hid Taranga’s cloak, delaying her the next morning as she searched for it, forcing her to depart without it. Māui donned Taranga’s cloak, turning into a wood pigeon, and followed her through a hole in the ground into the underworld where he found her with his father Makeatutara, a guardian of the underworld. Taranga introduced Māui to his father, who then at her request performed a ritual on the trickster to make him immortal. Accidentally (or perhaps deliberately), Makeatutara stumbled in his incantation dooming humankind to mortality forever. The kererū’s stunning plumage is, according to the legend, the cloak of Taranga. Although this work is deeply rooted in Aotearoa and Pardington’s feelings of mana whenua (people of the land) and kaitiakitanga (guardianship/ conservation), the artist is also a figure of international standing. One of the few New Zealanders honoured by the French government by being made a Chevalier de l’ordre des Arts et des Lettres, her work is to be found in important overseas collections and she has exhibited in prestigious galleries, museums and festivals around the world for many years now. In September this year she will be participating in the Royal Academy’s Oceania exhibition in London, which will also be hosted by the Musée du quai Branly in Paris in 2019. Andrew Paul Wood

W EBB’S

An important detail to note about this exquisite book created by Robin White is the work’s title. The people of Kiribati pronounce  ‘ti’ as ‘s’, therefore, the correct pronunciation of ‘Kiribati’ is ‘Kiribas’. The bound book is housed in a beautiful hand-made Polynesian fabric wrap in vivid blue and orange. The woodblock prints have been pressed onto heavy paper with alternating pages decorated with folded patterned margins. Two years prior to the work’s creation, White made her first trip to Australia where she visited the National Gallery of Victoria in Melbourne. While moving through the gallery, White was captivated by a painting by Dutch master Hans Memling titled The Man of Sorrows in the Arms of the Virgin. The work depicts Christ in the arms of his mother Mary, who weeps over her son after his descent from the cross. The central figures are surrounded by a combination of smaller images which together tell the story of Christ’s journey to the cross. White was inspired by this notion of one work acting as a chain of thought to tell a complete story. In 1984, White and her family moved to Tarawa, an atoll in Kiribati, after being asked by the National Spiritual Assembly of the Bahá’ís in New Zealand to volunteer with the Gilbertese Baha’i community1. Living on a beach, in a thatched rooved house completely exposed to nature and surrounded by minimal land and vast expanses of sea and sky, White found herself in a

S E PT E M BE R 2 01 8

new and challenging environment. Oil painting was no longer an ideal medium to work with and so she began to explore new mediums. White’s first series from Kiribati is a collection of drawings titled Beginner’s Guide to Gilbertese which documented her own experience of a new land and a new culture. A visit from Claudia Pond Eyley and her teenage daughter Brigid in the summer of 1984, provided White with an opportunity to study another person’s experience of Kiribati. Twenty-Eight Days in Kiribati recalls Brigid’s everyday experience of the patterns, colours and symbols of the Pacific. White observed a girl who optimised the collision of popular western culture from Auckland and the Pacifica environment of Kiribati. With Memling’s inspiration settled in her mind, and the need to explore new mediums, Twenty-Eight Days in Kiribati references medieval wood cut tradition which focused on the combination of verbal and visual messages. These are the first works where White carved and printed from wood, a skill she taught herself. White has built a story about Brigid and Gilbertese culture by combining pictorial elements, using the same blocks in different ways and integrating images and text, occasionally incorporating some of White’s own childhood and ultimately creating a tangible chain of memory and thought.

In 1973, Doris Lusk stoutly declared to interviewer Peter Cape: ‘I paint because I like painting’.  This was an attempt to dodge the usual intellectual debate and enquiries into her supposed nationalistic, emotional, or literary leanings.  Lusk, who was exploring the medium of watercolour in the 1960s, was also to explore a freer handling of paint at this time. Working from watercolour sketches in the field, she would later meditate on her findings in oil and acrylic. The scale of Takaka Valley, Nelson amplifies Lusk’s panoramic vision of a favourite location, and a famous one in New Zealand art history: the fertile farming valley of Takaka, Golden Bay.  In Takaka Valley, Nelson rising hills offer an embrace to low-lying terrain. Cool light can be seen at the horizon and dark clouds move through the pale sky. The valley is articulated by ochre, deep rich browns to soft blacks and greys, fleeting accents of orange, enlivening daubs of cobalt, grey blues, and khaki to bright greens. Astringent daubs of white suggest the little wooden structures of the farming community; their houses topped with red and blue corrugated iron roofs.  White lines run unevenly across the landscape into the distance – and up the canvas.  They suggest light glinting off waterways making their way to the coast.  Golden Bay was

73

one of Lusk’s favourite places in Nelson – and the coastal area of Onekaka, particularly.  Other painting locations over the years included Central Otago and Banks Peninsula.   Lusk’s desire since childhood was to have space to paint:  ‘I wanted a studio of my own.  The dream was like a parcel high upon a shelf I had to reach.’  This wish was to be granted in later years.  She studied at the Dunedin School of Art in the 1930s after her family returned from the Waikato to the city of her birth. Many of the School’s students became firm friends, including Colin McCahon, Anne Hamblett, Rodney Kennedy and Toss Woollaston.  Her teachers included the Canadian teacher Charlton Edgar, the British teacher Robert Nettleton Field, and Russell Clark.  Edgar taught her about landscape painting and tonal values, while Field coached Dunedin students in modern art and theory.  He had a particular enthusiasm for British moderns.  Years later Lusk would recollect the impact the 1934 Empire Loan Exhibition in New Zealand made on her –Sir Mathew Smith’s ‘luscious’ application of paint really stood out. Lusk’s lively, luscious Takaka Valley, Nelson reveals why this was such an attraction.  Lusk married Dermot Holland in 1942 and moved to Christchurch. She

continued to paint and exhibit with The Group as well as the Canterbury Society of Arts, despite the lack of studio and while raising three children.  Friends and associates included James K. Baxter, Rodney Kennedy, Woollaston, Leo Bensemann – who was born in Takaka, Charles Brasch and Allen and Betty Curnow. Woollaston’s subjects of the Nelson terrain encouraged McCahon and Lusk to work there, too. (During 1948, McCahon stayed with the Holland family while he painted his monumental Takaka, Night and Day.)  When Lusk’s Takaka Valley, Nelson was painted, more recognition was brewing for her after decades of exhibiting in which her landscape painting garnered the most attention.  In 1966, the year it was painted, Charlton Edgar organised a survey show of Lusk’s work at the Dunedin Public Art Gallery.  She also became a drawing tutor at the Canterbury School of Fine Art where she worked until 1981. In 2016, Grant Banbury and Lisa Beaven curated a large-scale exhibition held at the Christchurch Art Gallery called Doris Lusk: Practical Visionary. Lusk’s oeuvre which includes painting and pottery, and subjects of landscape, portraiture and self-portraiture, is now well represented in national collections.  Kyla Mackenzie

Created by one of New Zealand’s most popular artists, PA-KOW! was produced by Dick Frizzell for CowParade, an initiative that aimed to bring art to Auckland’s inner-city streets. Frizzell, who is best known for his stylized ‘Tiki’ and Four Square motifs uses a classic Pop Art aesthetic to adorn this vibrantly coloured fiberglass bovine. Born out of an era of social revolution and change, the Pop Art movement championed the power of the everyday object with artists such as Andy Warhol and Roy Lichtenstein using a burgeoning trend of consumerism as their inspiration. With reference to this, PA-KOW! becomes a harmonious fusion of past and present that showcases Frizzell’s expansive knowledge of Pop Art through a contemporary sculptural form. In keeping with Frizzell’s expansive oeuvre, this work brings intrigue and delight to its surrounding environment. Emma Brown

Terms & Conditions The terms and conditions of sale listed here contain the policies of Webb’s. They are the terms on which Webb’s and the Seller contract with the Buyer. They may be amended by printed Saleroom Notices or oral announcements made before and during the sale. By bidding at auction you agree to be bound by these terms. 1. Background to the Terms used in these Conditions The conditions that are listed below contain terms that are used regularly and may need explanation. They are as follows: “the Buyer” means the person with the highest bid accepted by the Auctioneer. “the Lot” means any item depicted within the sale for auction and in particular the item or items described against any lot number in the catalogue. “the Hammer price” means the amount of the highest bid accepted by the auctioneer in relation to a lot. “the Buyer’s Premium” means the charge payable by the Buyer to the auction house as a percentage of the hammer price. “the Reserve” means the lowest amount at which Webb’s has agreed with the Seller that the lot can be sold. “Forgery” means an item constituting an imitation originally conceived and executed as a whole, with a fraudulent intention to deceive as to authorship, origin, age, period, culture or source, where the correct description as to such matters is not reflected by the description in the catalogue. Accordingly no lot shall be capable of being a forgery by reason of any damage or restoration work of any kind (Including re-painting). “the insured value” means the amount that Webb’s in its absolute discretion from time to time shall consider the value for which a lot should be covered for insurance (whether or not insurance is arranged by Webb’s). All values expressed in Webb’s Ltd catalogues (in any format) are in New Zealand Dollars (NZD$). All bids, “hammer price”, “reserves”, “Buyers Premium” and other expressions of value are understood by all parties to be in New Zealand Dollars (NZD$) unless otherwise specified. 2. Webb’s Auctions as Agent Except as otherwise stated Webb’s Ltd acts as agent for the Seller. The contract for the sale of the property is therefore made between the Seller and the Buyer. 3. Before the Sale Examination of Property Prospective Buyers are strongly advised to examine in person any property in which they are interested before the Auction takes place. Neither Webb’s nor the Seller provides any guarantee in relation to the nature of the property apart from the Limited warranty in the paragraph below. The property is otherwise sold “AS IS” Catalogue and Other Descriptions All statements by Webb’s in the catalogue entry for the property or in the condition report, or made orally or in writing elsewhere, are statements of opinion and are not to be relied upon as statements of fact. Such statements do not constitute a representation, warranty or assumption of liability by Webb’s of any kind. References in the catalogue entry to the condition report to damage or restoration are for guidance only and should be evaluated by personal inspection by the bidder or a knowledgeable representative. The absence of such a reference does not imply that an item is free from defects or restoration, nor does a reference to particular defects imply the absence of any others. Estimates of the selling price should not be relied on as a statement that this is the price at which the item will sell or it’s value for any other purpose. Neither Webb’s nor The Seller is responsible for any errors or omissions in the catalogue or any supplemental material. Images are measured height by width (sight size). Illustrations are provided only as a guide and should not be relied upon as a true representation of colour or condition. Images are not shown at a standard scale. Mention is rarely made of frames (which may be provided as supplementary images on the website) which do not form part of the lot as described in the printed catalogue. An item bought “on Extension” must be paid for in full before it will be released to the purchaser or his/her agreed expertising committee or specialist. Payments received for such items will be held “in trust” for up to 90 days or earlier, if the issue of authenticity has been resolved more quickly. Extensions must be requested before the auction. Foreign buyers should note that all transactions are in New Zealand dollars so there may be a small exchange rate risk. The costs associated with acquiring a good opinion or certificate will be carried by the purchaser. If the item turns out to be forged or otherwise incorrectly

WEBB’S

described, all reasonable costs will be borne by the vendor. Buyers Responsibility All property is sold “as is” without representation or warranty of any kind by Webb’s or the Seller. Buyers are responsible for satisfying themselves concerning the condition of the property and the matters referred to in the catalogue by requesting a condition report. No lot to be rejected if, subsequent to the sale, it has been immersed in liquid or treated by any other process unless the Auctioneer’s permission to subject the lot to such immersion or treatment has first been obtained in writing. 4. At the Sale Refusal of Admission Webb’s reserves the right at our complete discretion to refuse admission to the auction premises or participation in any auction and to reject any bid. Registration Before Bidding Any prospective new buyer must complete and sign a registration form and provide photo identification before bidding. Webb’s may request bank, trade or other financial references to substantiate this registration. Bidding as a Principal When making a bid, a bidder is accepting personal liability to pay the purchase price including the buyer’s premium and all applicable taxes, plus all other applicable charges, unless it has been explicitly agreed in writing with Webb’s before the commencement of the sale that the bidder is acting as agent on behalf of an identified third party acceptable to Webb’s and that Webb’s will only look to the principal for payment. International Registrations All International clients not known to Webb’s will be required to scan through an accredited form of photo identification and pay a deposit at our discretion in cleared funds into Webb’s account at least 24 hours before the commencement of the auction. Bids will not be accepted without this deposit. Webb’s also reserves the right to request any additional forms of identification prior to registering an overseas bid. This deposit can be made using a credit card, however the balance of any purchase price in excess of $5,000 cannot be charged to this card without prior arrangement. This deposit is redeemable against any auction purchase and will be refunded in full if no purchases are made. Absentee Bids Webb’s will use reasonable efforts to execute written bids delivered to us AT LEAST 24 Hours before the sale for the convenience of those clients who are unable to attend the auction in person. If we receive identical written bids on a particular lot, and at the auction these are the highest bids on that lot, then the lot will be sold to the person whose written bid was received and accepted first. Execution of written bids is a free service undertaken subject to other commitments at the time of the sale and we do not accept liability for failing to execute a written bid or for errors or omissions which may arise. It is the bidder’s responsibility to check with Webb’s after the auction if they were successful. Unlimited or “Buy” bids will not be accepted. Telephone Bids Priority will be given to overseas and bidders from other regions. Arrangements for this service must be confirmed AT LEAST 24 HOURS PRIOR to the auction commencing. Webb’s accepts no responsibility whatsoever for any errors or failure to execute bids. In telephone bidding the buyer agrees to be bound by all terms and conditions listed here and accepts that Webb’s cannot be held responsible for any miscommunications in the process. The success of telephone bidding cannot be guaranteed due to circumstances that are unforeseen. Buyers should be aware of the risk and accept the consequences should contact be unsuccessful at the time of Auction. Webb’s will advise Telephone Bidders who have registered at least 24 hours before the auction of any relevant changes to descriptions, withdrawals or any other sale room notices. Online Bidding Webb’s offers an online bidding service. When bidding online the buyer agrees to be bound by all terms and conditions listed here by Webb’s. Webb’s accepts no responsibility for any errors, failure to execute bids or any other miscommunications regarding this process. It is the online bidder’s responsibility to ensure the accuracy of the relevant information regarding bids, lot numbers and contact details. Webb’s does not charge for this service. Reserves Unless otherwise indicated, all lots are offered subject to a reserve, which is the confidential minimum price

S E PT E M BE R 2 01 8

below which the Lot will not be sold. The reserve will not exceed the low estimate printed in the catalogue. The auctioneer may open the bidding on any Lot below the reserve by placing a bid on behalf of the Seller. The auctioneer may continue to bid on behalf of seller up to the amount of the reserve, either by placing consecutive bids or by placing bids in response to other bidders. Minimum Price Guarantee The seller of lots designated with the symbol * has been guaranteed a minimum price financed solely by Webb’s. Where the guarantee is provided by a third party or jointly by Webb’s and a third party, the Lot will be denoted with the symbols **. When Webb’s has solely guaranteed the minimum price, Webb’s will bear the risk that the lot will not be sold or will sell below the guaranteed minimum price in which case Webb’s will bear a financial loss. Webb’s may bid at the auction, and this will be disclosed, but only until the guaranteed minimum price. When a third party has financed all or part of our financial interest in a lot, it assumes all or part of the risk that the lot will not be sold and will be remunerated accordingly. The compensation will be a fixed fee, a percentage of the hammer price or the buyer’s premium or some combination of the foregoing. The third party may bid on the guaranteed lot during the auction, and this will be disclosed in a saleroom announcement. If the third party is the successful bidder, the remuneration may be netted against the hammer price. If the lot is not sold, the third party may incur a loss. The Minimum Price Guarantee amount will not be disclosed to the public. Where Webb’s has guaranteed a minimum price on every lot in the catalogue, Webb’s will not designate each lot with the symbol(s) for the guaranteed lots but will state our financial interest at the front of the catalogue. Auctioneers Discretion The Auctioneer has the right at his/her absolute and sole discretion to refuse any bid, to advance the bidding in such a manner as he/she may decide, to withdraw or divide any lot, to combine any two or more lots and, in the case or error or dispute and whether during or after the sale, to determine the successful bidder, to continue the bidding, to cancel the sale or to reoffer and resell the item in dispute. If any dispute arises after the sale, then Webb’s sale record is conclusive. Successful Bid and Passing of Risk Subject to the auctioneer’s discretion, the highest bidder accepted by the auctioneer will be the buyer and the striking of his hammer marks the acceptance of the highest bid and the conclusion of a contract for sale between the Seller and the Buyer. Risk and responsibility for the lot (including frames or glass where relevant) passes immediately to the Buyer. Indicative Bidding Steps, etc. Webb’s reserves the right to refuse any bid, withdraw any lot from sale, to place a reserve on any lot and to advance the bidding according to the following indicative steps:

5. After the Sale Buyers Premium In addition to the hammer price, the buyer agrees to pay to Webb’s the buyer’s premium. The buyer’s premium is 17.5% of the hammer price plus GST. (Goods and Services Tax) where applicable. Payment and Passing of Title The buyer must pay the full amount due (comprising the hammer price, buyer’s premium and any applicable taxes and GST) not later than 5 days after the auction date. The buyer will not acquire title to the lot until Webb’s receives full payment in cleared funds, and no goods under any circumstances will be released without confirmation of cleared funds received. This applies even if the buyer wishes to send items overseas. Payment can be made by direct transfer, cash (not exceeding NZD$10,000, if wishing to pay more than NZD$10,000 then this must be deposited directly into a Bank of New Zealand branch and bank receipt supplied) and EFTPOS (please check the daily limit). Payments can also be made by credit card in person with a 2.2% merchant fee for Visa and Mastercard and 3.3% for American Express. Invoices that are in excess of $5,000 and where the card holder is not present, cannot be charged to a credit card without prior arrangement. Personal cheques are accepted, but funds must be cleared before goods will be released. Bank cheques are subject to five days clearance. The buyer is responsible for any bank fees and charges applicable for the transfer of funds into Webb’s account. Collection of Purchases & Insurance Webb’s is entitled to retain items sold until all amounts due to us have been received in full in good cleared funds. Subject to this, the Buyer shall collect purchased lots within 5 days from the date of the sale unless otherwise agreed in writing between Webb’s and the Buyer. At the fall of the hammer, insurance is the responsibility of the purchaser. Packing, Handling and Shipping Webb’s will be able to suggest removals companies that the buyer can use but takes no responsibility whatsoever for the actions of any recommended third party. Webb’s can pack and handle goods purchased at the auction by agreement and a charge will be made for this service. All packing, shipping, insurance, postage & associated charges will be borne by the purchaser. Permits, Licences and Certificates Under The Protected Objects Act 1975, buyers may be required to obtain a licence for certain categories of items in a sale from the Ministry of Culture & Heritage, PO Box 5364, Wellington. Remedies for Non-Payment If the Buyer fails to make full payment immediately, Webb’s is entitled to exercise one or more of the following rights or remedies (in addition to asserting any other rights or remedies available under the law). • to charge interest at such a rate as we shall reasonably decide. • to hold the defaulting Buyer liable for the total amount due and to commence legal proceedings for its recovery along with interest, legal fees and costs to the fullest extent permitted under applicable law. • to cancel the sale. • to resell the property publicly or privately on such terms as we see fit. • to pay the Seller an amount up to the net proceeds payable in respect of the amount bid by the defaulting Buyer. In these circumstances the defaulting Buyer can have no claim upon Webb’s in the event that the item(s) are sold for an amount greater than the original invoiced amount. • to set off against any amounts which Webb’s may owe the Buyer in any other transactions, the outstanding amount remaining unpaid by the Buyer. • where several amounts are owed by the Buyer to us, in respect of different transactions, to apply any amount paid to discharge any amount owed in respect of any particular transaction, whether or not the Buyer so directs. • to reject at any future auction any bids made by or on behalf of the Buyer or to obtain a deposit from the Buyer prior to accepting any bids. • to exercise all the rights and remedies of a person holding security over any property in our possession owned by the Buyer whether by way of pledge, security interest or in any other way, to the fullest extent permitted by the law of the place where such property is located. The Buyer will be deemed to have been granted such security to us and we may retain such property as collateral security for said Buyer’s obligations to us. • to take such other action as Webb’s deem necessary or appropriate.

1 91

If we do sell the property under paragraph (4), then the defaulting Buyer shall be liable for payment of any deficiency between the total amount originally due to us and the price obtained upon reselling as well as for all costs, expenses, damages, legal fees and commissions and premiums of whatever kinds associated with both sales or otherwise arising from the default. If we pay any amount to the Seller under paragraph (5) the Buyer acknowledges that Webb’s shall have all of the rights of the Seller, however arising, to pursue the Buyer for such amount. Failure to Collect Purchases Where purchases are not collected within 5 days from the sale date, whether or not payment has been made, we shall be permitted to remove the property to a warehouse at the buyer’s expense, and only release the items after payment in full has been made of removal, storage handling, insurance and any other costs incurred, together with payment of all other amounts due to us. 6. Extent of Webb’s Liability Webb’s agrees to refund the purchase price in the circumstances of the Limited Warranty set out in paragraph 7 below. Apart from that, neither the Seller nor we, nor any of our employees or agents are responsible for the correctness of any statement of whatever kind concerning any lot, whether written or oral, nor for any other errors or omissions in description or for any faults or defects in any lots. Except as stated in paragraph 7 below, neither the Seller, ourselves, our officers, agents or employees give any representation warranty or guarantee or assume any liability of any kind in respect of any lot with regard to merchantability, fitness for a particular purpose, description, size, quality, condition, attribution, authenticity, rarity, importance, medium, provenance, exhibition history, literature or historical relevance. Except as required by local law any warranty of any kind is excluded by this paragraph. 7. Limited Warranty Subject to the terms and conditions of this paragraph, the Seller warrants for the period of thirty days from the date of the sale that any property described in this catalogue (noting such description may be amended by any saleroom notice or announcement) which is stated without qualification to be the work of a named author or authorship is authentic and not a forgery. The term “Author” or “authorship” refers to the creator of the property or to the period, culture, source, or origin as the case may be, with which the creation of such property is identified in the catalogue. The warranty is subject to the following: it does not apply where a) the catalogue description or saleroom notice corresponded to the generally accepted opinion of scholars and experts at the date of the sale or fairly indicated that there was a conflict of opinions, or b) correct identification of a lot can be demonstrated only by means of a scientific process not generally accepted for use until after publication of the catalogue or a process which at the date of the publication of the catalogue was unreasonably expensive or impractical or likely to have caused damage to the property. The benefits of the warranty are not assignable and shall apply only to the original buyer of the lot as shown on the invoice originally issued by Webb’s when the lot was sold at Auction. The Original Buyer must have remained the owner of the lot without disposing of any interest in it to any third party. The Buyer’s sole and exclusive remedy against the Seller in place of any other remedy which might be available, is the cancellation of the sale and the refund of the original purchase price paid for the lot less the buyer’s premium which is non-refundable. Neither the Seller nor Webb’s will be liable for any special, incidental nor consequential damages including, without limitation, loss of profits. The Buyer must give written notice of claim to us within thirty days of the date of the Auction. The Seller shall have the right, to require the Buyer to obtain two written opinions by recognised experts in the field, mutually acceptable to the Buyer and Webb’s to decide whether or not to cancel the sale under warranty. The Buyer must return the lot to Seller in the same condition that it was purchased. 8. Severability If any part of these Conditions of Sale is found by any court to be invalid, illegal or unenforceable, that part shall be discounted and the rest of the Conditions shall continue to be valid to the fullest extent permitted by law.

9. Copyright The copyright in all images, illustrations and written material produced by Webb’s relating to a lot including the contents of this catalogue, is and shall remain the property at all times of Webb’s and shall not be used by the Buyer, nor by anyone else without our prior written consent. Webb’s and the Seller make no representation or warranty that the Buyer of a property will acquire any copyright or other reproduction rights in it. 10. Law and Jurisdiction These terms and conditions and any matters concerned with the foregoing fall within the exclusive jurisdiction of the courts of New Zealand, unless otherwise stated. 11. Pre-Sale Estimates Webb’s publishes with each catalogue our opinion as to the estimated price range for each lot. These estimates are approximate prices only and are not intended to be definitive. They are prepared well in advance of the sale and may be subject to revision. Interested parties should contact Webb’s prior to auction for updated pre-sale estimates and starting prices. 12. Sale Results Webb’s will provide auction results, which will be available as soon as possible after the sale. Results will include buyer’s premium. These results will be posted at www.webbs.co.nz 13. Goods and Service Tax GST is applicable on the hammer price in the case where the seller is selling property that is owned by an entity registered for GST. GST is also applicable on the hammer price in the case where the seller is not a New Zealand resident. These lots are denoted by a dagger symbol † placed next to the estimate. GST is also applicable on the buyer’s premium. Overseas buyers and buyers non-resident in New Zealand will not be charged GST on both hammer price and premiums under the following conditions: The items are exported through a Webb’s approved freight company including New Zealand Post. The items are exported within 60 days of the date of the sale The invoice supplied by Webb’s for purchases will be regarded as a Tax invoice for GST purposes. 14. Jewels & Watches Gemstones Gemstones have historically been subjected to a variety of treatments to enhance their appearances. Sapphires and rubies are routinely heat treated to improve their colour and clarity, similarly emeralds are frequently treated with oils or resin for the same purpose. Other treatments such as staining and dyeing, irradiation, filling or coating may have been used on other precious and semi-precious gemstones and organic material. These treatments may be permanent, whilst others may need special care to preserve their appearance. Buyers should assume that each lot has been subject to some form of treatment and that the estimates reflect this. A number of laboratories issue certificates that give detailed descriptions of gemstones, and in the event that Webb’s has been supplied with or obtained certificates for any lot, this shall be noted in the catalogue. However, as there may not be consensus between different laboratories on the degree, or types of treatment of the gemstones Webb’s supplies these without warranty. Pearls Pearls, like gemstones, can also be subjected to various treatments. Buyers should assume that any pearls sold by Webb’s may have been subjected to such treatments, and that the catalogue estimates reflect this. Watches Please note: All watches sold by Webb’s are sold on an “as is” basis. Webb’s makes no representation or warranty that any watch is in working order. Many watches have been repaired over their lifetime and may contain non-original parts. The absence of any reference to the condition of a watch does not imply that the lot is in good condition and without defects, repairs or restorations. Buyers should be aware that a general service charge for battery or further repair work, for which the Buyer is solely responsible, may be necessary. Estimated Weights If a stone has a known weight, it has been weighed out of the mount. If a stone has an estimated weight, it is an approximate weight only and has been measured by us in the mount and is a statement of opinion only. The information is given as a guide only and Buyers should satisfy themselves with regard to this information as to its accuracy.
