Lot 31: ARTHUR BOYD 1920 - 1999, NARCISSUS RUNNING ON A SANDBANK, 1976, oil on canvas

by Deutscher and Hackett

April 30, 2014, 7:00 PM AEST

South Yarra, Australia

Estimated Price: AUD40,000 - AUD60,000

Description: ARTHUR BOYD 1920 - 1999, NARCISSUS RUNNING ON A SANDBANK, 1976, oil on canvasSIGNED: signed lower right: Arthur BoydDIMENSIONS: 92.0 x 122.0 cmEXHIBITED: Arthur Boyd: Recent Paintings, Fischer Fine Art, London, 1977, cat. 13 (illus. in exhibition catalogue)PROVENANCE: Fischer Fine Art, London Savill Galleries, Sydney Private collection, Melbourne, acquired from the above in 1995ESSAY: According to the oft-quoted version ascribed to Ovid, the myth of Narcissus tells of the unrequited love of the nymph Echo who, condemned by Hera to repeat only the last syllable of words spoken in her presence, is unable to declare her love for the handsome youth, Narcissus. Thus spurned by Narcissus, she dies of a broken heart, while Narcissus is doomed by the gods to fall in love with his own image. Unable to tear himself away from his reflection in a woodland pool, he dies there of languor and ultimately, is metamorphosed into the flower which bears his name, growing by the edge of rivers and ponds. With its themes of vanity, self-indulgence and eventually, self-destruction, this epic tale had provided inspiration to the visual arts for thousands of years from ancient Rome to the celebrated images of artists as diverse as Caravaggio, Poussin and Dali. Even local predecessors such as Sydney Long had equipped the Australian bush with Arcadian pastoral idylls in the classical tradition. No artist however, had ever devoted himself to imagining the experiences of Narcissus in the Australian landscape with such vigour and complexity before modernist painter, Arthur Boyd. Comprising by far the largest body of work on a single theme executed by Boyd during his Shoalhaven period, the Narcissus series - exemplified magnificently here by Narcissus Running on a Sandbank,1976 - was conceived following the artist's return to Australia from England in 1975. Directly inspired by his experience of living upon the banks of the Shoalhaven - the river with its stillness and mesmerising reflections, the ubiquitous native rock orchids, and the haunting echoes of the valley - such compositions are widely acclaimed among his most audacious works, demonstrating Boyd at his most elegant and commanding. Switching emphasis constantly, at times Boyd allows the naked figure of the doomed Narcissus to dominate (as here where the self-loving spirit strides through the sandbank lashed by a rainstorm and framed by a resplendent rainbow), and elsewhere, the primordial landscape. Pervading the entire series however, is the artist's enduring interest in man and his responsibility to others; as Boyd muses, 'It is the self-absorption of Narcissus that interests me. He was more interesting than Ajax or Hector or Mars. Conceit is essentially non-productive in all aspects ...'1 Indeed, for Boyd, Narcissus personifies the concept famously explored by Freud of a self-knowledge that threatens to become impotent self-love and self-destruction. Such moral implications are poignantly reiterated by a similar composition entitled simply Narcissus which features the almost airborne protagonist diving into the water, while behind him, curled up in a foetal position is his own image at birth. Narcissus is so non-productive that he doesn't even notice himself (the foetal baby beside him), while in Narcissus with Cain and Abel on the Shoalhaven, the message is even more poignantly accentuated: 'Cain and Abel were the beginning of non-productive behaviour and Narcissus was a continuation. Both situations are barren.'2Accompanying the first exhibition of Boyd's 'Narcissus' paintings at Fischer Fine Art, London in 1977, was an introduction by esteemed Australian expatriate poet, Peter Porter, who was motivated to write 'Narcissus Nowra' after visiting the artist at his Shoalhaven property in 1975. Driven by a similar desire to contribute to contemporary issues of morality and politics through the guise of the European cultural tradition, the two would later collaborate on several publications together, including Narcissus (1984) featuring Porter's poems from 1976-79 and Boyd's brilliant visionary suite of 24 aquatint etchings. 1.

Excellent Case V-42 Special Forces Stiletto with Original Sheath Attributed to a Member of the 3rd Ranger Infantry Company in Korea

Lot 3606: Excellent Case V-42 Special Forces Stiletto with Original Sheath Attributed to a Member of the 3rd Ranger Infantry Company in Korea

by Rock Island Auction Company

May 4, 2014, 9:00 AM ChST

Rock Island, IL, USA

Estimated Price: $5,000 - $8,000

Description: Excellent Case V-42 Special Forces Stiletto with Original Sheath Attributed to a Member of the 3rd Ranger Infantry Company in KoreaOriginally manufactured for issue to the 1st Special Service Force and seeing service with the Marine Raiders. Notes from the consignor state that this knife was an original Case V-42 that was returned to Army inventory following World War II and was broken out of storage for issue to the freshly reactivated Ranger companies that were preparing to deploy for the Korean War. This particular knife is reported as being issued to one Nick Nakajo; research identifies a Masahiro Nakajo in the 3rd Ranger Company in Korea, a young Japanese-American who had been recruited into the Army out of the Manzanar Relocation Camp. When the consignor became acquainted with Nakajo in the 1970s, he was a Lieutenant Colonel involved with the development of the Apache Helicopter. Nakajo recalled that the knife was not issued to him until the very end of Ranger training, by which time he had privately purchased a Randall #1, and so the V-42 spent the war in storage. Arriving in Korea in 1951, the 3rd operated as a reconnaissance and 'spearhead' unit for the 3rd Infantry Division, exploiting the relatively fluid front lines to infiltrate into enemy territory. By the time the 3rd Rangers and the other Ranger companies were consolidated into the U.S. 187th Airborne Regimental Combat Team, the 3rd had suffered over 50% casualties in combat with the North Koreans. The stiletto measures 12 3/4 inches overall, with a 7 3/8 inch double edged blade, showing extra sharp hollow ground edged and the distinctive long ricasso with the serrated thumb rest over "CASE" on one side, an oval cross guard with leather padding on the underside, ribbed leather washer grip, and the flared steel pommel with "skull crusher" spike on the bottom. With the original "long drop" leather sheath, 20 inches long with staple reinforced throat and stitching.Manufacturer: NoneModel: NoneBBL: Stock: Gauge: Finish: Grips: Serial Number:

Condition Report: Excellent, with over 90% of the original blue finish, showing some light wear on the blade concentrated towards the tip and some minor scratches. The guard is bright and the pommel shows mild spotting. A few cuts are present in the guard padding, with light handling marks on the grip. The holster is very good with some cracking on the retention strap, surface wear on the hanger and mild verdigris at the bottom. V-42 rigs are scarce in any condition; the stilettos typically suffered very hard use, and the sheaths were often discarded or altered to a more conventional profile, leaving very few this fine available today.

LUFTWAFFE

Lot 6925: LUFTWAFFE

by Hermann Historica

May 14, 2014, 10:00 AM CET

Munich, Germany

Estimated Price: €4,000 - €4,800

Description: LUFTWAFFE, Geheime Kommandosache (secret command document) - documentation relating to the paratrooper mission (Luftlandeverband Student) to seize the ""Fortress Holland"", Extensive documentation and cartographic material relating to the Airborne Forces' operation led by General Kurt Student with the units under his command (7th Flight Division and 22nd Infantry Division). Includes approximately 50 pages of typewritten documentary material (DIN A4 format)" some of which duplicated during the period and approximately ten maps in varying sizes. Numerous stamps reading ""Geheim"" and ""Geheime Kommandosache"" as well as handwritten notes. A closer study of the documents is recommended in order to appreciate their significance. They shed further light on new aspects on the campaign and the ""Fortress Holland"" in the year 1940. At the beginning of the western military campaign" the 22nd ID were deployed in airborne missions as part of the 7th Flight Division (see enclosed contemporary cartographic material on Rotterdam and other target locations). Infantry Regiment 16 landed in the Waalhaven area Infantry Regiment 47 near Katwijk-Valkenburg and Infantry Regiment 65 in the Ypenburg area. The 22nd ID and the enlisted paratroopers suffered great losses in the course of these missions.
