MCTAGGART, WILLIAM

by Van Ham Fine Art Auctioneers

May 13, 2016, 3:00 PM CET

Köln, Germany

Estimated Price: €7,000 - €10,000

Description: MCTAGGART, WILLIAM 1835 Aros - 1910 Broomieknowe "My Boy Tammie". After a poem by the Scottish poet Hector MacNeill (1746-1818). Oil on canvas. 46 x 36cm. Monogrammed lower right: WMT (lig.). Framed. Verso: Various informations on the stretcher: - at the top handwritten old adhesive label: "'Herding a wee lamb and ewe / For her poor Mammie' / My Boy Tammie / William McTaggart / ARSA". - laterally handwritten note: "My Boy Tammie" William McTaggart ARSA 1862. - at the bottom gallery label of The Fine Art Society Ltd, London December 1977, no. 7308. The Scottish painter Sir William McTaggart, born in 1835, was fascinated by nature and the human's relationship to nature throughout his life. His vibrant colours and his strong brushwork find their parallels in the impressionism of the 19th century, even though McTaggart's painting generally sticks to the Scottish tradition. In McTaggart's paintings one can find numerous borrowings from Constable and Turner, who he adored. McTaggart was born on Mull of Kintyre and regularly returned to his birthplace later on from his studio in Glasgow and his house in Broomieknow, which is located a little outside Edinburgh. He studied at the Trustees' Academy in Edinburgh and had early successes when he was chosen aa a member of the Royal Scottish Academy at the age of 24. The ballad "My Boy Tammie", title and subject of the present painting, was written by the famous Scottish poet Hector Macneill (1746-1818) at that time. The last two lines of the second verse of this popular Scottish folk song read "...Herding a wee lamb and ewe; For her poor mammy". With wide brushstrokes McTaggart embeds the scenery of these lines in a sun-flooded spring-like landscape. In the course of the 1860s McTaggart had more and more important supporters and collectors in Dundee, the capital of the jute industry. Our painting, which originated in 1866, was acquired by the collector George B. Simpson at that time. This is confirmed by the correpondance between the artist and the collector. Back then the textile producer from Dundee was one of the most important Scottish collectors. Literature: - Kvaerne, Per: William McTaggert 1835-1910.

Marcel Jean Richard, Les Brenets, Suisse, Case No. 10568, 55 mm, 158 g, circa 1956

by Auktionen Dr. Crott

May 14, 2016, 12:00 PM CET

Frankfurt Airport, Germany

Estimated Price: €75,000 - €110,000

Description: An important, unique, astronomic and extremely fine "Grande Complication" with indications for day, date and month considering the leap year "Perpetual Calendar", moon phase with cobalt blue enamelled moon phase disc and inlaid golden stars and moon, moon age and minute repeater by a Westminster Chime Carillon made for the famous blind organist André Marchal, Paris 1956 Case: 18k gold, polished, gold dome with dedication engraving. Dial: silvered. Movm.: bridge movement, 4 hammers / 4 gongs, gold screw compensation balance. Marcel Jean Richard was born in 1893 in Le Locle and died in 1986 in Les Brenets in Switzerland. Richard was a descendant of Abraham Jean Richard, the brother of the legendary maker Daniel Jean Richard – who is considered to be the founding father of Swiss watchmaking. Marcel‘sfather Edward ran a watchmaking business in Le Locle from 1928 to 1939. The workshop produced a great number of complicated watches which were for example delivered to Breguet in Paris. Marcel Jean Richard taught for a short while at the Ecole d'Horlogerie Le Locle, where he had excelled in his youth because of his exceptional talent. He produced complicated watches with perpetual calendars and moon phases. In 1951 Richard created the four clocks on the walls of the Guebelin house in Lucerne. He also had business relations with Chaumet in Paris. Today some of Richard’s pieces are held by the museum in Le Locle. André Marchal (1894 - 1980) André Marchal was one of the great initiators of the twentieth-century organ revival in France. Marchal was born blind. Remarkably undaunted by this handicap, he studied the organ under Eugène Gigout at the Paris Conservatoire; and there, in 1913, hewon the First Prize in organ-playing. Four years later he also won the prix d'excellence for fugue and counterpoint. As well as giving a good many concerts, both in France and in other countries (England, Australia, the United States), Marchal taught organ at the Institut National des Jeunes Aveugles in Paris, in addition to serving as titular organist of the Abbey of Saint-Germain-des-Prés (1915–1945) and Saint-Eustache (1945–1963). Source: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Andr%C3%A9_Marchal, as of 02/11/2016. Westminster Carillon Watches with a carillon minute repeating mechanism are an extremely rare find; there are only very few pieces known today that have Westminster chimes or four hammers. The design was patented as patent no. 11948 on March 20, 1896, by Constant Piguet. The two other makers who were known to have specialized in this type of watch were Eduard JeanRichard andVictorin Piguet and to the best of our knowledge only three tunes were played by the four hammer carillons - Westminster chimes, the Swiss National anthem and God Save the King. To be absolutely correct, the Westminster chimes should actually be called Cambridge Chimes, because they were first used in 1793 at St. Mary's Church in Cambridge. They were co-written by Rev.Dr. Joseph Jowett and Dr. John Randall and the undergraduate student William Crotch, who would later become the first principal of the Royal Academy of Music. Lord Grimthorpe later used the tune for his great bell (nicknamed "Big Ben") of the clock he designed at the north end of the Palace of Westminster. The chimes are supposedly a variation of a phrase from Handel's Messiah.

Condition Report: Case: very good. Dial: very good. Movm.: very good, capable of running.

Aini Girl named Yan Xiang by Zhang Li

by Cavalier Galleries

Ships From: New York, NY US

Description: Portrait in oil of a young girl named Yan Xiang dressed in traditional group. Yan is a member of the small nomadic Aini people of Xinjiang, a desert province of China north of Tibet. About the artist: Zhang Li was born in 1958 in Beijing, China. He graduated from the Fine Art Department of the People's Liberation Army Institute in 1983, where he majored in oil painting. Mr. Zhang is currently a Professor at the Institute, as well as a member of the Chinese Association of Artists. Zhang Li has won many national awards in China, including the Artist's Excellence Award at several different national exhibitions. His talents are widely recognized in the US as well: Mr. Zhang was recently awarded the Grand Prize for Best of Show in the American Society of Portrait Artists' International Portrait. Li's concentration on portraiture allows him to focus on the emotional character of his subjects, and the broad emotional motifs are made starkly visible to the viewer because of Li's dedication to such exquisite detail. Even though his subject matter young women dressed in the traditional garb of various Chinese ethnic groups—may seem singular, the haunting beauty of his portraits possess a wonderfully universal appeal. Many of his works are collected by the Chinese National Gallery and the Center of Chinese Art Interchange in Beijing. His paintings have also been collected in the United States, England, France, Japan, Germany, Taiwan, Singapore, and Hong Kong—a fact that aptly illustrates the growing worldwide popularity that Zhang Li is enjoying.

Frankfurt Airport, Germany

Estimated Price: €120,000 - €200,000

Description: A very rare and historically interesting gilt-metal, gold and enamel coach-watch with astronomical regulator dial, quarter-striking, music and alarm, made for the Chinese Market "The Lion and the Lioness". The movement attributed to Jaquet-Droz & Leschot, the enamels after engravings by George Stubbs and Thomas Boreman. The gold and enamel panel possibly by Jean Abraham Lissignol. With original fitted chamois lined red leather protecting case with keys. Case: brass frame with embossed and chased copper panels parcel-gilt in red, green and yellow. The back centred with an oval gold and enamel panel (62 x 48 mm), painted with The Lyon, and Lyoness (sic) after the mezzotint by George Stubbs 1776 [1], flanked on either side by standing Cranes with a Phoenix bird above holding a ribbon swag, the surround with greengilded tropical leaf foliage, below the centre panel a small plaque enamelled on copper with an opossum, the bezels similarly embossed, gilded and pierced with foliage and each set with seven further oval panels enamelled with matching stylised animals (clockwise) - a kudu, a squirrel, an ape, a leopard, a giraffe, a fox, and a lion, all taken directly from Thomas Boreman's "A description of Three Hundred Animals .", 1774 edition [2]. Dial: white enamel with a concentric ring divided for the minutes and Arabic five minute numerals. Four subsidiary dials within the centre; hours at 12 o'clock with Roman numerals, lunar calendar at 3 o'clock with gilt moon phase quarters and decorative stars, subsidiary seconds at 6 o'clock and 1/5 "seconde foudrayante" at 9 o'clock, centred with a gilt face of the Sun. Blued steel hour and polished gold subsidiary hands with steel alarm pointer. Movm.:Constructed in three tiers with gilt brass plates and bridges. Fusee with chain for the goingtrain with jewelled cylinder escapement and plain balance, going-barrel for the alarm, going arbors for the quarter-striking on a large bell in the back of the case, and music, with pin-drum playing the tune on the hour or at-will with seven hammers on four bells. The skeletonised backplate elaborately pierced and engraved with foliage against a matted ground. Gilt dust ring secured by dog screws. Marks and signatures: No signature on movement. The largest bell in the musical train signed "Drury London". A number of the parts of the movement are scratched with a capital B. (numbering in this way usually indicates it is one of a pair or small series of virtually identical movements.) Drury, London: With the watch likely dating between 1785 - 90, this must be James Drury (died 1811), son of John(died 1771). They were a well known family of clockmakers in the first part of the 18th. century and later bell founders. Their name appears on the bells of many Continental pieces, notably those from Daniel de St. Leu, a watchmaker of Genevan origin, many of whose movements are undoubtedly Swiss made. For details of the Drury family see the online article by Brian Loomes [3]. Notes: In recent years, detailed research into the surviving workshop records and correspondence of Jaquet- Droz & Leschot has revealed a far greater degree of co-operation between the Geneva based firm and the London makers whose names appear on many of the clocks and watches destined for export to China. In his extensive work Le Monde des Automates [4], published in 1928, Alfred Chapuis, despite his wide-ranging knowledge of Swiss horology, referred to one such clock, certainly of largely Swiss construction, as"in the spirit of Cox's Museum. Shortly afterwards, Harcourt-Smith, in his brief catalogue of a group of clocks housed in the collection of the Peiping Palace Museum, published in 1933 [5], continued in the same vein. The attribution of all such unsigned objects to English makers was perhaps not surprising on account of the fact that almost none of the clocks and only a few of the watches are signed with a Swiss name before the 1790's. In addition, the notoriety surrounding the career of James Cox, punctuated by bankruptcies, a Museum and a Lottery, has always made him the prime candidate for being the "maker" of many anonymous clocks. Based upon a substantial body of quite recently published work [6, 7, 8 ], a series of well illustrated catalogues of pieces preserved in the National collections in China, and significantly, a comparative analysis of a considerable number of cases andmovements, it is now becoming clear that the collaboration was extensive. Leading this collaboration, both as manufacturers in their own right and suppliers of complete movements and parts, was the firm of Jaquet-Droz and Leschot. They also acted as marchands, financing and supplying a range of objects made by outside workshops for their clients in London. The company was established by Pierre Jaquet-Droz in 1738, initially rising to fame following a successful trip to the Spanish Court in 1758. However it was as a result of the travelling exhibition of the famous androids - The Writer, The Magician and The Draughtsman - in 1774/5 that the business achieved international renown. Various sources indicate that Jaquet-Droz visited London in 1774, apparently to exhibit the androids; what is more certain is the existence of a contract between the firm and James Cox made in 1783. This wasrelatively short lived due to Cox's failure to honour payments due for goods supplied. Collaboration with English makers and merchants, particularly the firm of Duval & Sons, continued until the early years of the 19th. Century. For the watch now offered for sale it is difficult to precisely pin-point the makers of the various components. There can be little doubt that the movement and dial originated in the Jaquet-Droz workshops, and the oval gold and enamel panel on the back of the case is assuredly Genevan work. However, the style and execution of the small copper and enamel plaques after Boreman, would tend to indicate that they are of English origin. There is the possibility that they were sent to Switzerland to be fitted to the case, perhaps accompanied by the Stubbs engraving. Alternatively, the case itself could have been made in an English workshop. Bibliography: 1. C.Lennox-Boyd, R. Dixon, T. Clayton, George Stubbs.

In addition Stubbs produced a considerable number of paintings of exotic animals that were largely unknown to the English public including the kangaroo, leopards, rhinoceros and particularly lions, of which there are a number of examples. Sources for these were animals housed in the popular London zoos and private menageries. In the 1760's Stubbs experimented with painting in enamels on copper and on larger panels of porcelain made by Josiah Wedgewood. A version of the subject depicted on the watch case and enamelled by Stubbs and dated 1770 is preserved in the Yale Institute for British Art [9](accession no. YCBA/lido-TMS- 21177). The oval enamel is painted on a gold panel fixed by small pins to themetal case. The blue enamel is over a guilloche ground, with the polychrome scene slightly raised and painted on a white ground. The trunk of the tree is not enamelled but engraved. The subject is taken directly from an engraving of an unknown painting by George Stubbs ( See Lennox- Boyd [1]). Titled : The Lyon and Lyoness, with engraved inscription G. Stubbs pinxt .G.T. Stubbs fecit/ 1776 .It is mentioned in the text that the Lions are depicted at night, which is interesting in view of the dark blue guilloche background of the enamel. The engraving could have been sent to Geneva for copying although Lennox-Boyd records that there were several Continental dealers offering English prints for sale (op cit p.27). The technique used appears on a number of watches destined for the Chinese market - painted scenes on raised white ground with translucent guilloche background. Three pieceswith oval enamels (all with panels of similar size to the Stubbs) have appeared on the market in recent years, all signed by Kenebel with subjects taken from the work of the English artist William Hamilton (1751-1801). Two are identical - titled Evening - and have sequential numbers on the movements [10,11]. This would indicate they were a pair in the same way as the William Anthony and James Cox watches and objects were identical pairs rather than reversed views of the same subject. The third watch has another version of the scene but executed in the same technique [12]. The Kenebel watches are variously dated to circa 1800 which seems late in view of Hamilton s death in 1801. The most likely source is not the A. Conte print used by Antiquorum for the Sandberg catalogue, but the Bartollozi (active in England to 1799) engraving [13] dated to circa 1790. Therefore a date of 1780 -1790seems more likely. Antiquorum and Christie's attribute the enamels to Lissignol, (Jean Abraham (1749 - 1819), enameller and miniaturist), but there is no definitive evidence given. The same enamel technique appears to have been used on the exceptional "Temple" clock with bird exhibited by La Vieille Russie in 1968, signed Monin [14]. A not dissimilar Temple in the Farouk collection, signed Staplin, also has very similar enamelwork [15]. These pieces certainly came from the workshops of Jaquet-Droz & Leschot. Thomas Boreman: Little is known of his life, but he was certainly one of the earliest English children's book publishers. His Three Hundred Animals was first published ca.1730. Boreman's earliest works included his 1740 Gigantick Histories, miniature books with illustrations and a list of subscribing readers, including the names of children as well as parents. He followed thistwo-volume publication with Curiosities in the Tower of London, with illustrations of animals in the Tower Zoo. The seven pairs of plaques mounted on the bezels, with another below the Stubbs gold plaque, are enamelled on copper with stylised animals directly taken from the book published by Thomas Boreman (several editions [2]). It seems likely these enamels were made in England, possibly by a factory associated with the Bilston style. The sister watch "Two Peacocks" is held at the Patek Philippe Museum in Geneva. It is illustrated and described in: "Patek Philippe Museum" by Dr. Peter Friess, vol. IV - The Emergence of the Portable Watch, Geneva 2016, page 514f. The "Sister" Watch Another example of the same workmanship, size and decorative technique is now in the Musee Patek Philippe. It was formerly in the Wuppertal Museum and illustrated in their exhibition catalogue of 1968[16], and subsequently published by Brusa in 1978 [17]. Brusa gives the diameter as 115 mm. No information as to the materials used for the small enamels is given and the illustrations are not sufficiently clear to identify the small plaques on the bezels (No information is given as to the materials used for the small enamels, but the theme of exotic birds is continued). The larger oval enamel is clearly on gold in the same technique as the Stubbs, with the birds on a raised white enamel ground against a red guilloche background. It appears that the trunk of the tree is also in engraved low relief gold. Further research would likely reveal the inspiration for the subjects depicted. The chased decoration of the bezels of the cases appears to be identical although the birds flanking the central panel are different as is the foliage around them. There is no small oval panel below the largeroval. The dials are also identical. However, the Patek watch appears to have a later silver ferrule placed into the alarm winding hole. This is signed Lepaute Paris which may indicate that the firm repaired it in the 19th. century, but clearly had nothing to do with the manufacture. A second hole in the dial, possibly also a modification by Lepaute, and also with a similar ferrule is above the alarm release lever. The movements are apparently virtually identical. The watch is unsigned but it is not known if any parts are numbered or lettered in the same manner as the Stubbs. There seems to be no doubt that they were manufactured at the same time, using the same movements, enamelling technique and case maker. The Museum watch was exhibited in the Automates & Merveilles series of Exhibitions held in Switzerland in 2012. It is attributed to Jaquet Droz & Leschot and known as "TheBirds"[18]. Another watch apparently also from the same workshops, of the same size with identical dial layout and movement was withdrawn from a Bonhams sale in NY in 2014 [19]. There can be no doubt that it was made for the Chinese market, a fact confirmed by the Chinese characters on the dial and the unusual champleve and translucent silver enamel panel on the back depicting Crane birds.

Condition Report: Case: very good, slightly chipped. Dial: very good. Movm.: very good, capable of running.

EMANUEL PHILLIPS FOX, (1865 - 1915), FIGURE STUDY FOR THE ARBOUR, c.1909 - 10, oil on canvas

South Yarra, Australia

Estimated Price: AUD200,000 - AUD300,000

Description: EMANUEL PHILLIPS FOX, (1865 - 1915), FIGURE STUDY FOR THE ARBOUR, c.1909 - 10, oil on canvas SIGNED: signed lower left: - P[h]illips Fox DIMENSIONS: 74.0 x 40.5 cm PROVENANCE: Private collection, Brisbane Private collection, Melbourne Deutscher-Menzies, Melbourne, 20 August 2001, lot 47 (label attached verso) Private collection, Tasmania EXHIBITED: E. Phillips Fox and Ethel Carrick Fox, Deutscher Fine Art, Melbourne, 13 November - 6 December 1997, cat. 16. p. 21 (illus.) LITERATURE: Zubans, R., E. Phillips Fox: His Life and Art, The Miegunyah Press, Melbourne, 1995, cat. 322 ESSAY: Life in Paris during la belle époque was elegant, fashions were fabulous, and the pursuit of pleasure was an artful indulgence. Captured by the artists of the day – especially Claude Monet, Pierre-Auguste Renoir, and the Australian expatriates E. Phillips Fox and his friend Rupert Bunny – their colour-filled paintings featured images of relaxation with dappled sunlight highlighting a moment or movement that gave their canvases such Impressionist verve. The artists first sketched in the open air to capture the passing scene or shift of light, and Figure Study for The Arbour, c.1909 – 10 is typically engaging in its immediacy and transience created by swift strokes of the gifted brush. Fox later translated this study into the figure of the man to the left in his masterly painting, The Arbour c.1910, acquired by the National Gallery of Victoria, Melbourne in 1916 through the Felton Bequest. (The Arbour was exhibited at London’s Royal Academy in 1910, and in Paris at the 1912 Salon of the Société Nationale des Beaux-Arts.) The setting was Fox’s garden in Paris – the sitters members of his family circle, as identified by the noted Fox scholar, Ruth Zubans. The little boy in red, for example, is taken from a study of Len Fox, the artist’s nephew, painted earlier in the home of the artist’s brother David, in Malvern, Melbourne.1 The woman in white with the parasol also had its genesis during this Melbourne visit, the model being David’s wife Ethel. The composition then evolved through numerous sketchbook studies before the finished work achieved its rightful place among Fox’s brilliant déjeuner series – Al Fresco c.1905 in the Art Gallery of South Australia, Adelaide, and Déjeuner c.1910-11 of the Lionel Lindsay Collection, Lionel Lindsay Gallery and Library Trust, The University of Queensland Art Museum, Brisbane. A subject typical of these graceful times, Ruth Zubans has also drawn attention to the inspiration of Monet and Renoir in Fox’s ‘general response to a lifestyle and the Paris ambience, which perhaps aroused unconscious desires connected to his own past, as well as idealization of family life.’2 The unidentified figure of the man, cigar in hand and suitably attired for the occasion, offers his services to the ladies on the occasion of afternoon coffee.3 Relaxation, family engagement and privacy blend equally. As in this study, the sitters’ glances are kept within the picture’s space. In the final painting, however, any sense of viewer intrusion is set aside by the engagingly direct look of the little boy in his red suit. 1. Zubans, R., E. Phillips Fox 1865-1915, National Gallery of Victoria, Melbourne, 1994, p. 56. For details of the painting see Zubans, 1995, op. cit., cat. 288 2. Zubans, R., E. Phillips Fox: His Life and Art, The Miegunyah Press, Melbourne, 1995, p. 126. See Monet’s Le Déjeuner c.1873, Musée d’Orsay, Paris, and Renoir’s Le Déjeuner des canotiers, 1881, The Phillips Collection, Washington 3. Previously, this delightful study has been misleadingly titled ‘The Waiter’. However, the dress and manner of the figure are not that of a servant but rather, of an equal member of the party.DAVID THOMAS
