Auction Description for Freeman's: European Art & Old Masters
Terms and Conditions:
All property offered and sold through Samuel T. Freeman & Co., ("Auctioneer", or "Broker", or the "Company") shall be offered and sold on the terms and conditions set forth in these Conditions of Sale. By participating in any sale, you acknowledge that you are bound by these terms and conditions.

Samuel T. Freeman & Co. has made every effort to catalogue and describe accurately property to be sold. The Company, however, assumes no risk, liability or responsibility for the identification or authenticity or authorship, or weight, count, or measure of any property identified in its catalogue or lists of sale. This shall include, among others, the identity of the creator, the period, culture, source of origin, as the case may be, with which the creation of any property is identified in any publication.

ALL PROPERTY IS SOLD "AS IS". THE CONSIGNOR MAKES NO WARRANTIES OR REPRESENTATIONS OF ANY KIND WITH RESPECT TO ANY PROPERTY OFFERED FOR SALE, SINCE THE AUCTIONEER IS ACTING SOLELY AS AN AUCTION BROKER, AND, UNLESS OTHERWISE STATED, DOES NOT OWN THE PROPERTY OFFERED FOR SALE. THEREFORE, THE AUCTIONEER MAKES NO WARRANTY OF TITLE, WARRANTY OF MERCHANTABILITY OR FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, OR ANY OTHER WARRANTY OR REPRESENTATION OF ANY KIND OR NATURE WITH RESPECT TO THE PROPERTY.

In no event shall it be responsible for the correctness, nor deemed to have made any representation or warranty of description, genuineness, attribution, provenance or condition of the property and no statement by anyone or in the catalogue, in any advertisement, or which is made at the sale, in the bill of sale or invoice, or elsewhere, shall be deemed such a warranty or representation or an assumption of liability. Without in any way waiving the foregoing, any complaint regarding authenticity, genuineness, attribution or provenance shall be made within twenty-five (25) days of the day of sale or such complaint shall be waived. All bidders acknowledge their right to have made or requested full inspection of any and all properties prior to sale and agree to be charged with all matters such inspection may have disclosed or indicated. Inspection on the day of sale will be permitted only upon prearrangement with the COMPANY.

Samuel T. Freeman & Co. reserves the right to withdraw any property at any time before the fall of the hammer in its sole and exclusive discretion.

Unless otherwise announced by the auctioneer at the time of sale, all bids are per lot as numbered in the printed catalog. Freeman's reserves the right to determine any and all matters regarding the order, precedence or appropriate increment of bids or the constitution of lots.

The highest bidder acknowledged by the auctioneer shall be the purchaser. In the event of any dispute between bidders, the auctioneer shall have the sole and final discretion either to determine the successful bidder or to re-offer and resell the article in dispute. If any dispute arises after sale, the Company's sale record shall be conclusive in all respects.

If the auctioneer determines that any opening or later bid or any advance of bidding is not commensurate with the value of the article offered, the auctioneer may reject the same and withdraw the article from sale.

Upon the fall of the hammer, title to any offered lot or article will immediately pass to the highest bidder as determined in the exclusive discretion of the auctioneer. Such bidder thereupon assumes full risk and responsibility for the property sold, agrees to sign any requested confirmation of purchase, and agrees to pay the full purchase price therefore or such part upon such terms as the Company may require. All property shall be paid for and removed by the purchaser at his/her expense within ten (10) days of sale and, if not so removed, may be sold by the Company, or sent by the Company to a public warehouse, at the sole risk and charge of the purchaser(s), and the Company may prohibit the purchaser from participating, directly or indirectly, as a bidder or purchaser in any future sale or sales. The Company will not be responsible for any loss, damage, theft, or otherwise responsible for any goods left in the Company's possession after ten (10) days. If the foregoing conditions or any applicable provisions of law are not complied with, in addition to other remedies available to the Company and the Consignor (including without limitation the right to hold the purchaser(s) liable for the bid price) the Company, at its option, may either cancel the sale, retaining as liquidated damages all payments made by the purchaser(s), or resell the property. In such event, the purchaser(s) shall remain liable for any deficiency in the original purchase price and will also be responsible for all costs, including warehousing, the expense of the ultimate sale, and the Company's commission at its regular rates together with all related and incidental charges, including legal fees. Payment is a precondition to removal. Payment shall be by cash, certified check or similar bank draft, or any other method approved by the Company. Checks will not be deemed to constitute payment until cleared. The Company will charge interest of one and one-half percent (1 1/2%) per month on any balance remaining thirty (30) days after the day of sale. Any exceptions must be made upon the Company's written approval of credit prior to sale.

Unless the sale is advertised and announced as "without reserve", each lot is offered subject to a reserve and the Company may implement such reserves by bidding through its representatives on behalf of the Consignors. In certain instances, the Consignor may pay less than the standard commission rate where the Company or its representative is a successful bidder on behalf of the Consignor. Where the Consignor is indebted to the Company, the Company may have an interest in the offered lots and the proceeds there from other than the broker's Commissions, and all sales are subject to any such interest.

No "buy" bids shall be accepted at any time for any purpose.

Any pre-sale bids must be left in writing with the Company prior to commencement of offer of the first lot of any sale. The Company's copy of any such bid shall conclusively be deemed to be the sole evidence of same, and the Company shall not be held responsible for any failure to execute any pre-sale bid.

A buyer's premium will be added to the successful bid price and is payable by the purchaser as part of the total purchase price. The buyer's premium is 25% of the successful bid price up to and including $50,000, 20 % between $50,001 and $1,000,000, and 12% on any amount in excess of $1,00,000. Please note that as of October1, 2014 Invaluable charges an additional 5% to the Buyer's Premium for their services

Unless exempted by law from the payment thereof, the purchaser will be required to pay any and all applicable state and/or local sales taxes. Deliveries to be made outside the state where a sale is conducted may therefore be subject to a corresponding or compensating tax in another state.

REMBRANDT VAN RIJN, (DUTCH 1606-1669),

Estimate: $25,000 - $35,000

Description: REMBRANDT VAN RIJN (dutch 1606-1669) "LANDSCAPE WITH A SQUARE TOWER" 1650. Etching and drypoint Image size: 3 1/2 x 6 3/16 in. (8.9 x 15.7cm) Sheet size: 3 5/8 x 6 1/4 in. (9.2 x 15.9cm) [Bartsch 218; New Hollstein 250, late impression of the third state of three] provenance: Harlow, McDonald & Co., New York. From the Estate of former Pennsylvania Governor William W. Scranton and First Lady Mary L. Scranton. note: Rembrandt created twenty-six landscape etchings between 1640-1653, usually produced in his studio on the basis of preparatory drawings made during countryside walks.

Condition Report: a good, crisp impression on laid paper, in fine overall condition, with no watermark visible to us. The upper portion of the work partially affixed (likely with glue but we are not certain for fear of risking damage to the sheet) to undermat, so that approx. 3/4 or more of the sheet verso is viewable, but the upper portion of the sheet verso is not viewable (as it is affixed to undermat). With margins intact on all sides, as seen in catalogue photo/online photo. Approximate dimensions of the margins is as follows: left margin - less than 1 mm (thread margin); right margin - 1 mm; bottom margin - 2 mm; top margin - 1 to 2 mm, and top margin with three tiny vertical tears that appear in the outer margin, but do not appear to extend into the image. Each tear is approx. 1 mm long. Part of the outer top edge of sheet in margin is slightly curled upwards. Sheet has some slight cockling, with some areas of sheet not lying perfectly flat. Viewing verso of the sheet in strong light there are some areas of sheet that appear very slightly thinner than other areas, though sheet does not appear to be thinned or abraded in our opinion save for one tiny area located at top of trees at center left. In strong light in this area, there are almost imperceptible specs in which the light is visible - perhaps pintip in size - which may be pintip size holes in sheet, not really visible when print seen from front. In this area there is some slight discoloration. On the verso there is a spot at upper center right. One of these spots, to our eyes, is visible in the printed image, just to the right of the trees at left. That spot is approx. the size of a pinhead Frame: 10 x 12 1/2 x 0 3/4 in. Descriptions provided in both printed and on-line catalogue formats do not include condition reports. The absence of a condition statement does not imply that the lot is in perfect condition or completely free from wear and tear, imperfections or the effects of aging. Interested bidders are strongly encouraged to request a condition report on any lots upon which they intend to bid, prior to placing a bid. All transactions are governed by Freeman's Conditions of Sale.

These works have descended in the family from patriarch Albert Croquez, a venerable lawyer, historian, writer and art connoisseur. Albert was an accomplished figure, who, in addition to having a successful law career, wrote extensively on French history and was the recipient of awards from institutions including the Académie Française. Amongst his closest friends were Félix Labisse, Moïse Kisling, and James Ensor. An active collector of Ensor''s work, Albert Croquez authored the first monograph on Ensor as a printmaker. His fine, discerning eye for art led Croquez to build an extensive and important collection, and we are honored to present a part of that legacy.

VENETIAN SCHOOL, (16TH CENTURY), SALVATOR MUNDI

Estimate: $6,000 - $8,000

Description: VENETIAN SCHOOL (16th century) SALVATOR MUNDI Oil on panel, with wax seal verso: ''ACCADEMIA DI MILANO/PER L''ESPORTAZIONE'' with double eagle encircling letters ''F.I.'' 14 11/16 x 14 3/8 in. (37.3 x 36.5cm) provenance: Property of a Chester County, Pennsylvania Institution. note: The present previously unknown work is property of a Pennsylvania institution, where it has remained for decades. It belongs to an important corpus of paintings in which Christ is presented as ''Savior of the World,'' his right hand raised with crossed fingers, offering a benediction, while - in some instances, as in the present work - he holds an orb, sphere or globe in his left hand. A ''Salvator Mundi'' painting related to the present work was painted by the School of Giovanni Bellini, circa 1500-1520, and is in the Accademia Carrara in Bergamo (though Christ is depicted holding scriptures in his left hand in the Bellini picture). Other early Italian paintings of this subject were painted by Francesco Bissolo, Vincenzo Catena, Benedetto Diana, Giovanni Mansueti, Mario Marziale, Jacopo da Valenza and Alvise Vivarini. In the ''Salvator Mundi'' paintings by the aforementioned artists, there is no orb/sphere in Christ''s left hand. Italian depictions of Christ as ''Savior of the World'' in which an orb/sphere is held in the left hand include paintings by Vittore Carpaccio, Andrea Previtali, Cesare da Sesto, Palma Vecchio and most notably, Leonardo. The theme was also treated by important early Northern European artists, including Joos van Cleve, Michiel Coxie I and Albrecht Durer.

Condition Report: In fair overall condition, with some uneven surface undulations in panel and two longitudinal cracks in panel: one extending through Christ's face/chest, just to the right of center, and the other through part of Christ's hair at right and portion of his left torso. There is retouch along these cracks and additional retouch in areas not immediately along these cracks. There is some restoration in parts of background, most prominently above and to right of top of Christ's head. There is some restoration to Christ's hair at right. There is very precise, very fine retouching to parts of his chest and vestment. There is some retouching to part of sleeve, parts of raised right hand and some retouch to left hand and sphere held by left hand.
