JOYCE, JAMES. Anna Livia Plurabelle, Part I from

by Swann Auction Galleries

June 17, 2015, 1:30 PM EST

New York, NY, USA

Estimated Price: $4,500 - $6,000

Description: JOYCE, JAMES. Anna Livia Plurabelle, Part I from "Work In Progress." 12-inch, 78 rpm shellac record album, white labels printed in green (70mm; 85mm diameters), with "The Orthological Institute, 10 King's Parade, Cambridge" on both labels and "Manufactured by The Gramophone Co., Hayes, Middlesex" on Part II only, reference number in pencil on one side; original brown paper sleeve, edge splits and few small chips and creases; preserved in custom cloth folding portfolio with matching clamshell box (Alexander Neubauer bookplate). first pressing of this recording,/span produced by C.K. Ogden in Cambridge (later pressings were issued by His Master's Voice; the Argus Book Shop, Chicago; and the Gotham Book Mart, New York). Slocum and Cahoon incorrectly list London as the site where the recording was made; Sylvia Beach writes: "Mr. Ogden boasted that he had the two biggest recording machines in the world at his Cambridge studio and told me to send Joyce over to him for a real recording. And Joyce went over to Cambridge for the recording of Anna Livia Plurabelle" (Beach, p. 176). A typescript in half-inch letters was prepared to compensate for Joyce's dwindling sight, but the overhead illumination in the studio proved inadequate so that Joyce ended up reciting much of the text from memory, prompted by Ogden, who is audible at moments on the recording. Slocum and Cahoon p. 173. Cambridge: The Orthological Institute, [1929]

London, United Kingdom

Estimated Price: $4,000 - $6,000

Description: FRANCOIS GALL 1912-1987 Kolozsvar 1912 - 1987 Paris (Hungarian/French) Title: Marie-Lize Devant la Coiffeuse Fleurie Technique: Original Signed Oil Painting on Canvas Size: 26.5 x 21.6 cm / 10.4 x 8.5 in Additional Information: This original painting is hand signed in red by the artist "F.gall" in the lower right corner. Provenance: Sotheby's Arcade, New York, Impressionist, Modern and Contemporary Paintings, Drawings and Sculpture, 16th February 1999, Sale 1642, Lot 107. Francois Gall, Hungarian by birth, became an impressionist painter in the pure French tradition after he moved to Paris in 1936. Born in 1912, he began studied all media at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts in Rome while working in menial jobs to secure a living. Six years later, Francois Gall established himself in Paris and became a student of Devambez at the National Academy of Fine Arts. Francois Gall greatly admired the first generation impressionist and adopted their concepts for his own interpretations. Parisian scenes and portrayals of women engaged in typically feminine activities, like this small painting, were among his preferred subjects. Condition: Good condition. Some craquelures in the center of the image.

Description: BENJAMIN WEST Study of a Scull (Memento Mori). Pencil on cream wove paper. 220x260 mm; 8 5/8x10 1/4 inches. Born in Springfield, Pennsylvania, in a house that now sits on the campus of Swarthmore College, West (1738-1820) was among the most prominent, pre-Revolutionary, 18th-century American artists. With financial assistance from wealthy Philadelphia businessmen, he traveled to Italy in 1760 to pursue his artistic training and study the old masters, eventually arriving in England in 1763, where he established himself as a painter of historical scenes and portraits. Over the next few decades, West ascended to the upper eschelons of the English art hierarchy. He was appointed an official court painter by King George III in 1772 and became the second president of the nascent Royal Academy in London, following the inaugural presidency of Joshua Reynolds, in 1792. West's most famous painting The Death of General Wolfe, 1771, is now in the National Gallery of Canada, Ottawa.

Ernst Barlach, Die Flamme, 1934

by Lempertz

May 29, 2015, 6:00 PM CET

Cologne, Germany

Estimated Price: €35,000 - €45,000

Description: Signed 'E.Barlach' and with the cast number to the upper right of the plinth, foundry stamp "H. NOACK BERLIN" to the lower right on the side. Cast 2/12 from the only posthumous edition of 1979, no lifetime casts exist. Ernst Barlach left behind a large part of his oeuvre in the form of fragile clay and plaster working models. Although Barlach became famous primarily as a sculptor in wood, most of his works were created not in wood but in these malleable, though relatively impermanent materials. “Die Flamme” was initially also carried out in the form of a free-standing plaster figure (Laur 555), on the basis of which the artist carved the version in oak (Laur 557). Barlach's more intensive occupation with the realisation of these working models in bronze began in the 1930s, when Alfred Flechtheim initiated bronze editions of selected works. Although the protracted work with wood was his preferred medium in some works, Barlach often saw the bronze cast as an appropriate form of permanently realising the much more spontaneously produced models in clay or plaster. “It was above all these pieces that call for bronze, in which the complete freshness of the momentary feeling remains preserved; here, it alone is able to remain faithful to and preserve the experience of these minutes” (cited in: Laur, p. 44). For this reason the trustees of the estate decided to posthumously cast several working models in small editions, and these included “Die Flamme”. Barlach first carried out the motif of the “flame” in several charcoal drawings of 1927 (cf. Schult Zeichnungen 1889, 1890, 1892). Formally the motif is to be seen in connection with the figures of the “Fries der Lauschenden” and the “Gemeinschaft der Heiligen”, whose slender, statuesque forms reveal echoes of the sculptures of Romanic portals. “The equally offensive and defensive impression made by the pose calls to mind the demeanour of a messenger or guardian. In the alienness of his outward form, the youth resembles an ethereal being from an unearthly sphere; in terms of its aura, however, his appearance also has something worldly about it. In their sign-like quality, the attitude of the hands resembles the highly expressive gestures of medieval sculptures. [...] the flame [can be] interpreted as the profession of a spiritual attitude characterised through a steadfastness in the search for truth. The gesture of the figure points to the fact that there is a human 'interior' and 'exterior', which call for a balancing: the demands that the outside world places on a human being require evaluation against one's own, inner standard. Conversely, the claim to truth of the individual's feeling and thinking has to prove itself in the credibility of practical activities.” (Caspers, op. cit., p. 106) 113.2 x 38.6 x 18.8 cm 1934

[TOGETHER WITH:] Iuris Civilis Historia. [Italy: before 1760-1768].4to (240x180 mm), 18th century vellum on paperboards binding (a bit worn), with many handwritten notes to covers, the title written in brown ink to front board, visible joints at spine, pp. from 3 to 240 [actually, 241], [6], [2, blank], [1, title], 24, [1, index], [1, blank]. Text in Latin, handwritten in brown ink. The Institutiones had been requested by the emperor Justinian I to the renowned jurists Trebonianus, Teophilus and Doroteus in order to resume the Roman Civil Law for the students of the empire. They worked as a fundamental reference for the ancient law from that moment on, becoming the skeleton on which all following jurists would base their commentaries.The present manuscript is precisely one of those commentaries, written by an 18th century jurist and never published. The text follows step by step the structure of chapters and titles of the Institutiones, giving for every excerpt a clear and in-depht account.Provenance: I. Many contemporary handwritten inscriptions on the vellum binding. At front cover, mention to different religious authorities such as Mons. Tomaso Ant.nio Scotti and Mons. Card. Moriggia di S.ta Maria Maggiore; the names are followed by the place, Pavia. On the very same cover, the title of the volume was written in brown ink. On the back board, a different hand traces in brown ink: Carolus Antonius Nervianus Persius Papiensis, Venerandi Seminarij Alumnus sub disciplina D. B.ris [?] Francisci Bernerij eiusdem Rectori dignissimi Anno Domini 1701 4 nonas Mensis Martij. Just after, the signature by a different hand Aloysius Persi Pomus Papiensis. II. At front paste-down, inscription in brown ink concerning the sale of the manuscript, quoting the place and year of the transaction: Dato a Lacello gli 11 Luglio 1768.III. Just before the index if the first work, handwritten note Atti seguiti a favor della Com.ta di Cavaglio per l’anno 1760 de’ quali è dovuto l’emolumento. 14 7mbre Bando con imbig.ne di far la vindemia prima del tempo ordinato. The present and the former indications, act as a temporal mark for the datation of the manuscript, whose text was copied for sure before both notes.

Condition Report: Normal traces of use, but overall a fascinating and well preserved manuscript in its first binding.

Description: C-print mounted on aluminumIsrael, 2003Ori Gerscht (b. 1967) – Israeli photographerNumbered in typeset on a label affixed to the reverse ‘2/6’Dimensions: 40 ½ x 33 ¼ in. (102.9 x 84.4 cm.)Very good condition Provenance: CRG Gallery, New YorkEstimate $10,000-$15,000Exploring the symbolic power of the ancient olive trees of Israel, Ori Gerscht’s “Ghost Olive” series portrays these natural beings that carry political and cultural significance. Taken in the bright midday sun, Gerscht intentionally overexposes the image, bleaching the film and fading the images of the strong trees. The result is a delicate dissolution of form, transforming these symbols of strength into images of fragile beauty. Executed in 2003, this c-print mounted on aluminum is numbered two from an edition of six and measures 40 ½ x 33 ¼ inches. In overall good condition. Ori Gerscht (Israeli, b. 1967)Photographer and video artist Ori Gerscht often explores the psychology of collective trauma, examining how time and landscape both preserves and erases history. Born in Tel Aviv, Gerscht studied at the University of Westminster and the Royal College of Art, London. His work can be found the collections of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, the Tel Aviv Museum of Contemporary Art, the Tate Gallery, London, and the Museum of Modern Art, New York.

Maurice de Vlaminck, Nature Morte au pain, Circa 1941/1942

by Lempertz

May 29, 2015, 6:00 PM CET

Cologne, Germany

Estimated Price: €35,000 - €45,000

Description: Signed 'Vlaminck' in black lower left. - With the address stamp of the artist Arno Breker to the back of the canvas and twice to the stretcher. With an expertise from Maïthe Vallès-Bled, Wildenstein Institute, Paris, dated 19 March 2015. The painting is registered under the reference no. 6559, and will be included in the catalogue raisonné of paintings. The present still life is painted in powerful, pastose brushstrokes and displays a balanced and clearly structured composition. It is interesting how the artist suggests depth through the placement of the knife towards the vanishing point in the distance and the mysterious grey background, the pale horizon and leaden colour of which are reminiscent of Vlaminck's characteristic skies. The depiction of light and shadow in the work illustrates space and form; these primarily derive from colouristic and compositional considerations. The shadows and the vivid highlights of the bread lend the work a suggestive quality. In Paris, Vlaminck had an exclusive contract with the art dealer Daniel-Henry Kahnweiler since 1907. It was presumably through him that he met the gallerist Alfred Flechtheim, who was resident in Düsseldorf and Berlin. Flechtheim in turn probably instigated contact between Vlaminck and the artist Arno Breker. Like so many other artists of this generation, Breker - from whose estate the present work originates - had moved to Paris in 1927. Alfred Flechtheim secured a contract with Breker and supplied him with portrait commissions and his first sales to German museums throughout the late 1920s. Breker modelled Maurice de Vlaminck in 1943 and had the bust cast in bronze. 53.4 x 72.9 cm Circa, 1941/1942

PITSEOLAK ASHOONA (1904-1983), TATTOOED WOMAN, stonecut (unframed), 26

by Waddington's

June 1, 2015, 6:00 PM EST

Toronto, ON, Canada

Estimated Price: CAD3,000 - CAD5,000

Description: PITSEOLAK ASHOONA (1904-1983), E7-1100, CAPE DORSET TATTOOED WOMAN stonecut, 1963, 33/50, unframed26" x 24.5" -- 59.1 x 59.1 cm.Note:This simple yet powerful image of an Inuit woman illustrates the artist and printmaker's attention to detail and artistry. There is a sense of movement evident in what would otherwise be a static portrait. This sense is facilitated not only by the tilt of the woman's head but by the intersecting lines of the voluminous parka, facial tattoos and features. Pitseolak describes the tradition of facial tattoos, "Many of the woman had tattoo marks on their faces and my mother had them, too. They used to do it with a needle and caribou thread soaked in oil and soot from the kudlik - the seal oil lamp. They used to pull the thread through the skin and the skin would be swollen for many days." Inuit Women Artists, Voices from Cape Dorset, Canadian Museum of Civilization, 1994, pg. 51.Pitseolak "later identified the woman in this image as her mother; Tattooed Woman can be viewed as an homage both to her mother and to Inuit women of earlier generations." "As one of her earliest prints, made from a graphite line drawing and not yet indicative of this lively character for which she would later be recognized, this elegant image is nonetheless one of Pitseolak's best known and has become an icon of Canadian art."Christine Lalonde, Pitseolak Ashoona: Life & Work, Art Canada Institute, May 2015, ebook, pgs. 19 & 20.

(93.9 x 124.3 cm.)Very good condition Provenance: Zack Feuer, New York Estimate $7,000-$9,000In Jon Rafman’s digital work, he creates an ambiguous realm that questions the individual self in the media-driven world. Tiles of Warhol’s Mao diverge and meet in the center of the composition where a miner, a symbol of labor, is almost lost, buried in the absurd. Rafman hides the miner in a blanket of pop-culture images, implying the effects of the pop obsession on traditional virtues of industry. Executed in 2010, this unique archival pigment print mounted on dibond is signed on a label affixed to the reverse. The work measures 36 x 48 inches. In overall good condition, not examined out of frame. Jon Rafman (Canadian, b. 1981) A Montreal artist, filmmaker and writer, known for his commentary on digital and pop culture, Jon Rafman investigates the impact of technology and digital media on modern life. His work questions how an ever-connected society causes isolation and alienation. With an M.F.A. from The School of Art Institute of Chicago and a B.A. in Philosophy and Literature from McGill University, he is represented in galleries in New York, London, Paris and Berlin.

In 1918, Landacre began work as a commercial illustrator, enrolling in 1923 at the Otis Art Institute where he studied a variety of media, including wood engraving. His first solo show was in the early 1930s in Los Angeles, and along with the publication of his book, “California Hills and other Wood Engravings,” he began to garner much acclaim. He was often commissioned to do book illustrations, maintaining a hand press in his house for decades. Shipping costs excl. statutory VAT and plus 2,5% (+VAT) shipping insurance.

New York, NY, USA

Estimated Price: $1,000 - $2,000

Description: Lithograph on BFK RivesFrance, 1959Jean Dubuffet (1901-1985) – French artist, pioneer of the Art Brut movementSigned and dated in pencil lower right ‘J. Dubuffet 59’Titled lower center ‘Vie Diffuse’Numbered lower left ‘16/20’From Les Phenomenes Webel 546Full margins; framedImage dimensions: 20½ x 15¼ in. (52 x 38.7 cm.)Sheet dimensions: 25 ¾ x 19 ¾ in. (65.4 x 50.2 cm.)Overall dimensions: 29 ½ x 20 ½ in. (74.9 x 52.1 cm.)Provenance: Anon. Sale, Christie’s New York, October 30 2001, lot 268; John A. Torson, New YorkExhibited: Museum of Modern Art, New YorkEstimate $1,000-$2,000In a representation of ‘diffused life’ through mixed media, Dubuffet scatters materials in a fluid pattern. Tones of gray and black, in pure abstraction, disseminate across the composition in hash marks or scratches, typical of Dubuffet’s Art Brut style. He abandons all form and linear perspective in favor of a thick textured plane. Executed in 1959, this lithograph on BFK Rives is signed, titled, dated and numbered sixteen from an edition of twenty. From the artist’s “Les Phenomenes” series, the work measures 20 ½ x 15 ¼ inches. In overall good condition, not examined out of frame. Jean Dubuffet (France, 1901-1985)Widely considered one of the pioneers of the Art Brut movement, French artist Jean Dubuffet spent his entire artistic career resisting an accepted aesthetic. His interest in art brut, the art of the insane and that of the untrained person, led him to emulate this directly expressive and unstudied style in his own work. Although he studied at Académie Julian in Paris, Dubuffet did not begin seriously painting until the age of 41. Over the next 40 years of his life, he worked in various avart-garde styles, often using obscure materials. His works have been exhibited worldwide and are held in the permanent collections of numerous institutions. Shipping costs excl. statutory VAT and plus 2,5% (+VAT) shipping insurance.

He has exhibited internationally, including shows at the Whitney and the Los Angeles Museum of Contemporary Art, and at the Venice Biennale. Grooms work is included in several museum collections, including the Whitney Museum of American Art in New York, the Fort Worth Art Museum in Texas, and the Moderna Museet in Stockholm.
