Sale Notes:
Stanford Auctioneers is one of the largest Fine Art & Photographs auction houses in 10 of the 11 Western States (Arizona, New Mexico, Colorado, Utah, Nevada, Wyoming, Idaho, Montana, Oregon, and Washington), California being the exception. Headquartered in Phoenix, Arizona, we hold approximately 12 regularly scheduled auctions each year. We focus on traditional fine art and photography. Fine Art auctions generally consist of Old Master to Contemporary work, from the 15th to the 21st centuries, with an emphasis on 19th and 20th century material. We sell paintings, drawings, sculpture, fine prints, vintage and fine art posters, and many other types of fine art. Photographic items range from the earliest created images through the very recent. An important category in the Fine Art sales is Latin American material, with a sub-category in Mexican Folk Art. Our "traditional type" auctions afford bidders the ability to bid on the floor, by absentee bid (left with us or on-line), telephone bidding, and live on-line Internet bidding. We have world-wide bidders, from Iceland to South Africa, Chile to Canada. All auction lots are available for viewing by appointment prior to each auction. Payments by winning bidders can be made by cash (day of sale only), check, credit/debit card (Visa/MC), or wire transfer. We ship world-wide, have an experienced in-house shipping department, and are happy to ship most items for you. If the lots you purchase are very large, we may refer you to a local shipper. We welcome consignments. Please email us if you have items in which you think we might have an interest. If you wish to be added to our mailing list, please email us. Your email address is held strictly confidential. You can, of course, opt-out at any time. For more information, including our auction calendar and upcoming events, please visit our web site, email us, or feel free to call us.

JEAN-MICHEL BASQUIAT - Color silkscreen (?) front and back covers

Lot 3: JEAN-MICHEL BASQUIAT - Color silkscreen (?) front and back covers

Estimated Price: Log in or create account to view price data

Description: Jean-Michel Basquiat (American, 1960-1988). "Quetzalcoatl [autographed and annotated exhibition catalogue]". Color silkscreen (?) front and back covers. 1984. Signed in black marker on the inside front cover. Condition: the catalogue cover is creased upper and lower right corners, contents very good. A scarce catalogue and rare when signed, especially annotated. Basquiat's annotation clearly means that one should look at the image on the back cover of the catalogue to see the entire composition. As is, it is split in two (see the color lithograph issued in 1985 by the Museum Boymans-van Beuningen Museum, Rotterdam, for its exhibition of the same show which ran from February 9 to March 31, 1985, to view the entire image). This catalogue was issued for the traveling exhibition entitled "Jean-Michel Basquiat: Paintings, 1981-1984" initiating at The Fruitmarket Gallery, Edinburgh, August 11 to September 23, 1984. Numerous color illustrations, approximately 40 pages, published by The Fruitmarket Gallery. Images copyright © Artists Rights Society (ARS), New York. Overall size: 11 11/16 x 8 5/8 in. (297 x 219 mm). [28123] |2000| {R100}

Lot 4: JEAN-MICHEL BASQUIAT - Oil on paper

Estimated Price: Log in or create account to view price data

Description: Jean-Michel Basquiat (American, 1960-1988). "Rammellzee (Study)". Oil on paper. 1983. Signed on the verso. Light cream wove paper. Fine condition - as painted. Provenance: Estate of a private collector, Brooklyn, New York, acquired directly from the artist, with the monogram signature verso as requested. Quite probably a preliminary drawing for the finished work which was used as the album cover for the legendary "Rammellzee vs. K-Rob" record produced in 1983 (offered elsewhere in this auction). The iconography is similar or the same in our drawing as the album cover, displayed here for comparison. Image copyright © Artists Rights Society (ARS), New York. Overall size: 12 3/16 x 9 11/16 in. (310 x 246 mm). Image size: 12 3/16 x 9 11/16 in. (310 x 246 mm). [28473] |13000| {R100} (TL2)

JEAN-MICHEL BASQUIAT - Original offset lithograph record jacket & record

Lot 5: JEAN-MICHEL BASQUIAT - Original offset lithograph record jacket & record

Estimated Price: Log in or create account to view price data

Description: Jean-Michel Basquiat (American, 1960-1988). "Rammellzee vs. K-Rob [first edition, first printing]". Original offset lithograph record jacket & record. 1983. Signed in black marker in Basquiat's crown logo, upper center recto. Edition of 500 (original pressing). Thick jacket paper. The full sheet. Fine impression. Jacket in very good condition; some minor creasing lower right and upper right; vinyl and sleeve in fine condition. Please note that our example is from the original first edition, first printing/pressing produced during Basquiat's lifetime. The album was later reprinted after his lifetime. Rare and highly sought after. Due to the rarity of its original pressing, this album has been called the Holy Grail of rap records. A search of auction records going back 28 years yields no signed versions. The album contains "Beat Bop," a hip hop single by American rappers Rammellzee and K-Rob, produced by Basquiat and originally released in 1983 by record label Tartown. Initially distributed merely as a test pressing, it is notable for being featured in the hip-hop documentary film "Style Wars" and having the cover, as well as the record label (both sides), designed by Basquiat. The result of a disagreement between Rammellzee and Basquiat, the track has been cited as having an influence on artists such as the Beastie Boys and many experimental hip hop artists due to its chaotic, abstract sound. Image copyright © Artists Rights Society (ARS), New York. Overall size: 12 1/4 x 12 1/4 in. (311 x 311 mm). Image size: 12 1/4 x 12 1/4 in. (311 x 311 mm). [28038] |3000| {R100}

Condition Report: Jacket in very good condition; some minor creasing lower right and upper right; vinyl and sleeve in fine condition

Provenance: Estate of a private collector, Manhattan. Please note that our example is from the original first edition, first printing/pressing produced during Basquiat's lifetime. The album was later reprinted after his lifetime in a large edition. The most recent auction sale we could find was for $1,397 at Wright, Chicago, July 13, 2013, lot #144 (an unsigned example). The auction record for an unsigned example of this album cover appears to be $2,914 (?1,850) at Kapandji Morhange, Paris, April 15, 2008, Lot 102. The mixed media drawing of this image sold at Sotheby's, New York, 11/10/2011, for $302,500. Our example is the black vinyl (also issued with clear and white vinyl) with the original liner and accompanied by a C.D. Presents form, included with each impression.

Signed and annotated in black marker on the inside front cover. Fine condition. A rare catalogue when signed, especially annotated. Basquiat's annotation seems obvious (?).

Numerous color illustrations, 105 pages, published by Kestner-Gesellschaft Hannover. Images copyright © Artists Rights Society (ARS), New York. Overall size: 8 1/8 x 8 1/16 in. (206 x 205 mm).

Lot 9: JEAN-MICHEL BASQUIAT - Color offset lithograph

Estimated Price: Log in or create account to view price data

Description: Jean-Michel Basquiat (American, 1960-1988). "To Repel Ghosts [poster]". Color offset lithograph. 1986. Signed and annotated in black marker, upper center. Edition unknown, probably small. Light cream wove paper. The full sheet. Fine impression. Fine condition. A rare poster, very rare when signed. No non-internet auction sales located. We did find an example offered with pre-sale estimates of $5,000/7,000 at artnet auctions, December 20, 2012, apparently going unsold. Issued for the highly important exhibition entitled "Jean-Michel Basquiat" at Kestner-Gesellschaft, Hannover, November 28, 1986 to January 25, 1987. Basquiat died on August 12, 1988. His "To Repel Ghosts" series takes its title "after the Swiss diplomat Claudio Caratsch, who worked for many years in Africa, explained to Basquiat that often African art and artifacts served the everyday functions of repelling ghosts. In 1986?s acrylic on wood, resembling a boarded up window or storefront, Basquiat paints the phrase across the middle panel of wood and underneath places a ?TM? (for "trademarked"). Like most hip-hop artists, Basquiat was acutely aware of branding?s value; the utilitarian function of everyday art and artifact (?to repel ghosts?) becomes an advertising slogan in a proprietary field that uses, abuses, and ultimately disabuses artists of the romance of art as above and beyond market forces. But oil works using the same slogan and from the same year show Basquiat effacing the phrase, placing black paint over the ghosts, in effect repelling (etymologically, to push back) the repelling of ghosts, as if trying to rescue the idea?s intention from profane sloganeering." (courtesy Alessandro Porco). Image copyright © Artists Rights Society (ARS), New York. Overall size: 33 1/8 x 24 1/4 in. (841 x 616 mm). [28407] |1200| {R100}

Provenance: Estate of a private collector, Long Island, New York, acquired directly from the artist, with the monogram signature and initials verso as requested. The 'warrior' is a recurring theme in Basquiat's oeuvre. Image copyright © Artists Rights Society (ARS), New York. Overall size: 11 9/16 x 6 7/16 in. (294 x 164 mm). Image size: 11 9/16 x 6 7/16 in.

JEAN-MICHEL BASQUIAT & ANDY WARHOL - Original color offset lithograph

Lot 11: JEAN-MICHEL BASQUIAT & ANDY WARHOL - Original color offset lithograph

Estimated Price: Log in or create account to view price data

Description: Jean-Michel Basquiat & Andy Warhol (Americans, 20th Century). "Palladium Presents: Warhol * Basquiat Paintings". Original color offset lithograph. 1985. Signed by both artists in black marker, lower left and lower right. Edition unknown, presumed very small. The full sheet. Fine impression. Very good condition; colors strong; some dimples in the image; original folds as issued for mailing. An extremely rare and virtually unobtainable object. The companion piece to the legendary, iconic, and famous exhibition poster of two of the greatest artists of the latter part of the 20th Century, standing side by side, perhaps the most poignant and enduring image of the 1980's NYC art scene. Our example, the "invitation poster," shows Warhol landing a punch on Basquiat's chin. While the former poster (titled "Tony Shafrazi * Bruno Bischofberger Present: Warhol * Basquiat Paintings, September 14 through October 19, 1985, 163 Mercer Street, New York) is obtainable, the alternative version was issued for a one-night, invitation only event at the Palladium and very few were printed. We could locate only 2 auction records of this poster in the past 28 years, with only one of these being signed, which sold for $4,153 (?3,222) at PIASA, Paris, November 23, 2008, lot #413. The photograph is by Michael Halsband who also took the picture for the exhibition poster. Undoubtedly to be included in the forthcoming catalogue raisonne of Warhol's posters by Paul Marechal. The show displayed the collaborative paintings that Warhol and Basquiat worked on from 1984-1985. These works were the culmination of their friendship, one which began in the late 70's. Eventually, the two began work on the paintings that would constitute the bulk of this exhibition. But the process was not without conflict. Warhol, whose work ethic was legendary, grew frustrated with Basquiat's erratic appearances and the two worked very little on the paintings at the same time. The show was a financial and critical failure and marked the end of their friendship. The full title of the poster is: "Palladium Presents Warhol * Basquiat Paintings, Saturday * September 14 * 1985 * 10 PM, Palladium, 126 East 14 Street, Exhibition at Tony Shafrazi Gallery, Complimentary Admission for Two." The Palladium was built as a deluxe movie theater by move mogul William Fox in 1927. Beginning in 1971 it was also utilized as a rock concert venue until being converted into a nightclub in 1985 by Steve Rubell, following his success with Studio 54. Overall size: 17 5/16 x 11 1/16 in. (440 x 281 mm). Image size: 17 5/16 x 11 1/16 in. (440 x 281 mm). [28289] |5000| {R100}

Condition Report: Very good condition; colors strong; some dimples in the image; original folds as issued for mailing

Signed by both artists in ink, lower left and lower right. Edition unknown, presumed small. Smooth cream medium weight wove paper. The full sheet. Fine impression. Good condition; colors very good; some creasing in the image; one tack hole top margin and one bottom margin. The legendary, iconic, and famous poster of two of the greatest artists of the latter part of the 20th Century, perhaps the most poignant and enduring image of the 1980's NYC art scene. We could locate only 11 sales of this poster in the past 28 years, with only five of these being signed. The auction record for a signed example is $6,600 at Christie's New York, May 1, 2007, lot #839. The image is by Michael Halsband. The show displayed the collaborative paintings that Warhol and Basquiat worked on from 1984-1985. These works were the culmination of their friendship, one which began in the late 70's.

JEAN-MICHEL BASQUIAT & ANDY WARHOL & FRANCESCO CLEMENTE - Black marker drawing

Lot 13: JEAN-MICHEL BASQUIAT & ANDY WARHOL & FRANCESCO CLEMENTE - Black marker drawing

Estimated Price: Log in or create account to view price data

Description: Jean-Michel Basquiat & Andy Warhol & Francesco Clemente (20th Century). "Collaborations [with small drawing and annotation signed by Basquiat and signed by Warhol and Clemente]". Black marker drawing. 1984. Signed in black marker. Very good to fine condition. Very rare. We have not seen or heard of another example signed by all three collaborators. Basquiat's drawing and annotation and Warhol's and Clemente's signatures are contained in the (rare itself) hardcover exhibition catalogue entitled "Collaboratons: Jean-Michel Basquiat, Francesco Clemente, Andy Warhol" for the show at the Gallery Bruno Bischofberger, Zurich, September 15th to October 13th, 1984. The show was a critical and financial failure, which perhaps led to Basquiat's inscription in the catalogue. A highly detailed and complete rendition of the events leading up to the exhibition, the exhibition itself, and the aftermath can be found at Gallery Bruno Bischofberger's website. The catalogue and the dust jacket are both in very good to fine condition, unpaginated (approximately 30 pages), with color illustrations throughout, published by Edition Gallery Bruno Bischofberger. Overall size: 11 11/16 x 8 1/4 in. (297 x 210 mm). [28122] |5000| {R100}

Lot 15: KEITH HARING - Original color silkscreen

Estimated Price: Log in or create account to view price data

Description: Keith Haring (American, 1958 - 1990). "Crack Down! [poster]". Original color silkscreen. 1986. Signed in black marker, left center; signed and dated in the plate. Edition unknown, probably small. Light cream smooth wove paper. Full margins. Fine impression with vibrant colors. Condition: fine. Literature/catalogue raisonne: Gundel/von der Osten 40. Scarce, and rare when signed. Only two auction records during the past 28 years located. The poster was created by Haring at the request of the concert promoter Bill Graham. Graham revisited his old Bronx neighborhood in August of 1986 and, appalled to see that the drug culture had effectively wiped out the local culture, foresaw a menacing problem in the crack craze. He teamed with David Maldonado to stage a Crack Benefit in the city, but scaled back plans several times since few shared his apprehension. Ultimately, two concerts were held, one at Madison Square Garden on October 31st and the other, an all-Latin show at the Felt Forum, the following night. The Halloween concert featured Crosby, Stills & Nash, the Allman Brothers, Run DMC, Olatunji, Ruben Blades, and Santana, among others. Image copyright © The Keith Haring Foundation.

Lot 16: KEITH HARING - Colored inks on fabric

Estimated Price: Log in or create account to view price data

Description: Keith Haring (American, 1958 - 1990). "Crack Down! [pelon]". Colored inks on fabric. 1986. Signed in black marker, upper left; signed and dated in the matrix. Wide margins. Fine impression with vibrant colors. Condition: fine; trimmed a bit irregularly, "as issued.". Literature/catalogue raisonne: Gundel/von der Osten 40 for the poster. Extremely rare. No auction records located. Pelons themselves are extremely rare "practice pieces" for the early t-shirt designs. Before production was initiated, the image or design was tested on cotton cloth or burlap to determine the color and line accuracy of the piece. The earlier examples, those dating from the 1970s, are generally the only pelons run on burlap. Few of these "tests" were preserved once the design was deemed acceptable and the shirt went into production. The image for the pelon is identical to that of the image for the poster created by Haring (with the exception of the background color, which is mustard yellow in the pelon) at the request of the concert promoter Bill Graham. Graham revisited his old Bronx neighborhood in August of 1986 and, appalled to see that the drug culture had effectively wiped out the local culture, foresaw a menacing problem in the crack craze. He teamed with David Maldonado to stage a Crack Benefit in the city, but scaled back plans several times since few shared his apprehension. Ultimately, two concerts were held, one at Madison Square Garden on October 31st and the other, an all-Latin show at the Felt Forum, the following night.

Description: Damien Hirst (English, b.1965). "Butterfly Panel (4 panel)". Color silkscreen and offset lithograph. 2004. Signed lower right. The full sheet. Fine impression. Fine condition. Backed with a conservation support sheet. Provenance: Private collection, Birmingham, England. A panel of wallpaper (the complete pattern) depicting a range of butterflies, which was first shown in the 'In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida' exhibition (which also featured works by Sarah Lucas and Angus Fairhurst) at Tate Britain, London, in 2004. A limited edition of 500 rolls of this paper were made. Many of the rolls were used in the exhibition and therefore destroyed, as they were pasted to the walls of the gallery. A number of the rolls are also believed to have perished in the Momart warehouse fire. Surviving panels are therefore increasingly rare. Please see attached images of the wallpaper in place at the exhibition. Overall size: 42 x 41 in. (1067 x 1041 mm). Image size: 42 x 41 in. (1067 x 1041 mm). [26304] |1200| {R100}

Lot 47: DAMIEN HIRST - Color silkscreen and offset lithograph

Estimated Price: Log in or create account to view price data

Description: Damien Hirst (English, b.1965). "Pharmacy Panel (Gold) (1997) (4 panel)". Color silkscreen and offset lithograph. 1997. Signed lower right. Printed with five colors and metallic gold ink. The full sheet. Fine impression. Fine condition. Backed with a conservation support sheet. Provenance: Private collection, Birmingham, England. A panel of wallpaper (the complete pattern). In 1997, for his restaurant called 'The Pharmacy' located at Notting Hill Gate, London, Hirst designed wallpaper (the "wall chart") based on the pharmaceutical giant Merck?s handbook endpapers, showing pills and products and describing them with their pharmaceutical titles. Merck objected and he withdrew it as an artwork of wallpaper, after he had already plastered the restaurant with silver and gold sheets of the material. Hirst's venture gained further publicity thanks to a dispute with the Royal Pharmaceutical Society of Great Britain, which claimed the name, pill bottles, and medical items on display could confuse people looking for a real pharmacy. The name itself breached the Medicines Act 1968, which restricts the use of the word "pharmacy". The restaurant's name was subsequently changed to "Army Chap" and then "Achy Ramp" (anagrams of "pharmacy"). Initial plans to open further restaurants outside London were quietly dropped and the restaurant itself closed in September, 2003. Sotheby's dispersed its contents in 2004. There was a small overrun of the 1997 rolls, from which our example is a part. For the massive Pharmacy sale at Sotheby?s in 2004, though, new wallpaper was designed and made that didn?t offend copyright laws, using biblical titles and references to biblical passages. The 1997 wallpaper is much scarcer and more valuable than the 2004 version. Overall size: 36 x 42 1/2 in. (914 x 1079 mm). Image size: 36 x 42 1/2 in. (914 x 1079 mm). [27848] |1600| {R100}
