Apollo 13 FLOWN lunar surface map hand signed by

Lot 138: Apollo 13 FLOWN lunar surface map hand signed by

by Chaucer Covers & Auctions

July 25, 2014, 5:00 PM GMT

Folkestone, United Kingdom

Estimated Price: £2,000 - £3,000

Description: Apollo 13 FLOWN lunar surface map hand signed by Fred Haise. FLOWN approx. 8.5x10.5 sized "LSE FRA Mauro - 1G" map from the "Lunar surface exploration map data package" - flown to the moon onboard the lunar module "Aquarius" that became a lifeboat for the three astronauts during the historic Apollo 13 mission. Printed on both sides. It shows the planned landing site of Apollo 13 at Fra Mauro. This map originates from the "LM lunar surface maps" book - NASA Part No. SKB32100082-371 - serial S/N 1001" (1001 usually refers to the flown status while 1002 is the backup part as George Colton confirms). They are all printed on a heavy plastic stock. A fabulous group of maps that would have gone to the lunar surface onboard Aquarius had the mission not been cut short by the explosion. A fascinating and informative 2002-dated typed letter signed from him regarding the production of this map book is included along with several of his service records and copies of the Apollo 13 stowage list showing this item by number. All these maps show the actual landing site "Fra Mauro" that became, of course, the landing place for Apollo 14 on the next Apollo flight ! The Colton letter reads (in part) : These final copies were printed on 7mil Cronopaque. Cronopaque is a type of plastic found to resist burning. All onboard material had to meet stringent fire and outgassing specifications that were developed as a result of the pad fire that killed Grissom, Chafee and White. The paper products used in the book also had to meet these specifications. "When I received the loose material back from the Army I took it to our in-house clean room where it was processed into the final book format. Each sheet was trimmed to final size and laminated back to back with the next page. Holes were punched, covers were prepared and rings were inserted to make the LM LUNAR SURFACE MAPS into a loose-leaf book. "Two exact copies of each book are built. In this case it was serial number 1001 and 1002. Serial number 1001 is always designated to be the flight article and 1002 the backup. In the event that 1001 is damaged than 1002 can be substituted. In the case of Apollo 13 serial number 1001 was the book that was flown. The entire map book was originally presented by the Apollo 13 crew to mission planner George Colton a few days after they safely returned from their flight during an official ceremony in Houston while Fred Haise nicely inscribed and certified the front cover "To George - this document flown to the moon on Apollo 13 spacecraft 11-17 April 1970. Sure sorry we didn't get to use these. Thanks from the Apollo 13 crew, (signed) Fred Haise, James Lovell and Jack Swigert. This is one of the best documented checklists out there with a perfect chain of ownership, originally sold by George Colton to famous space collector Steve Belasco whom we've acquired it from. Fred Haise as Apollo 13 lunar module pilot has signed this map. Each map we offer from this book comes with a perfect documentation : • FLOWN Apollo 13 map • Certificate of authenticity • Copy of the original George Colton documents giving further background • Scanned files of ALL maps and checklists from the flown "LM surface maps" book * Photo of Haise with the maps A lunar surface flown map (from the Apollo 17 lunar surface maps book) from Apollo 17 similar to this used on an EVA during Apollo 17 has just realized more than $35000 in R&R auction !

LUCIO FONTANA (1899-1968)

Lot 126: LUCIO FONTANA (1899-1968)

by Hôtel des Ventes de Monte-Carlo

July 26, 2014, 3:00 PM CET

Monte Carlo, Monaco

Estimated Price: €1,000,000 - €1,100,000

Description: LUCIO FONTANA (1899-1968) Concetto Spaziale, Attese, 1965/68Peinture à l'eau sur toile Signée et titré sur le revers «L.Fontana Concetto Spaziale Attese / Quando ritornerà la primavera andro a Comabbio Milano Sant'Erasmo Club d'Arte» 61 x 50 cmProvenance Galerie Pierre, Stockholm Dans les collections de l'actuel propriétaire depuis 40 ans. Bibliographie Enrico Crispolti, Lucio Fontana Catalogo Generale, Milan 1986, vol. I, n° 67T19, reproduit page 656. Notre tableau est reproduit sur la couverture du catalogue raisonné. Enrico Crispolti, Lucio Fontana Catalogue Raisonné des Peintures, Sculptures et Environments Spatiaux Rédigé, Brussels 1974, vol. II, reproduit page 188. Les très célèbres tableaux à entailles «tagli» de Fontana, sous-titrés par l'artiste Attese (c'est-àdire «Attentes»), exposés pour la première fois à Milan en 1958, puis à Paris (galerie Stadler) et à la Biennale de São Paulo en 1959, sont devenus emblématiques de l'ensemble de l'oeuvre de l'artiste. Les premières entailles apparaissent d'abord, vers 1957, au milieu de multiples perforations et déchirures dans des peintures à l'encre sur toile «inchiestri» et dans des peintures sur papier. À partir de 1958, elles occupent seules la toile et caractérisent la rupture de Fontana avec la gestualité «informelle» de la période des buchi. Délaissant les gestes qu'on imagine nombreux et compulsifs des tableaux à perforations, Fontana adopte un geste net, purifié, réduit à l'essentiel, matérialisant de la manière la plus simple l'idée principale de son oeuvre : la quête de l'infini par les moyens de l'art. «Mes entailles, dit l'artiste (dans une interview accordée à la revue Vanità, en 1962), sont pardessus tout une expression philosophique, un acte de foi dans l'infini, une affirmation de spiritualité. Quand je m'assois devant l'un de mes tagli, [...] je me sens un homme libéré de l'esclavage de la matière, un homme qui appartient à la grandeur du présent et du futur.» Il faut donc donner au terme Attesa [Attente] un sens double pour désigner à la fois la concentration maximale de l'artiste dans la préparation de son geste, et la contemplation par lui-même de la surface monochrome fendue, comme image de l'infini. Dans le cas du Concetto Spaziale, Attese, l'extrême économie de moyens, jointe à un extraordinaire raffinement de réalisation, contribue, au-delà de l'évidente connotation érotique de l'oeuvre, suggérée par la couleur rose, à faire percevoir avec la plus grande évidence ce que le critique Guido Ballo appellera «la paradoxale présence de l'absence». Extrait du catalogue Collection Art Moderne - La collection du Centre Pompidou, Musée National d'Art Moderne, sous la direction de Brigitte Leal, Paris, Centre Pompidou, 2007. Sculpteur, peintre, céramiste et théoricien italien, Lucio Fontana est né en 1899 en Argentine. Fils de sculpteur, il pratique le modelage dès son plus jeune âge. Après des études à l'Institut Technique d'Architecture de Milan en 1914-1915, il reçoit une formation classique à l'Académie de Brera. En 1922, il repart à Buenos Aires et s'initie à la technique de la taille directe dans l'atelier de son père. Alors qu'il est de retour en Italie en 1926, ses premières sculptures appartiennent alors à la tradition figurative du Novecento, dont l'esthétique fut récupérée par la politique culturelle de Mussolini. Dans les années trente, Fontana remet définitivement en cause le principe d'un art voué exclusivement à la figure et en 1935, il adhère au mouvement parisienAbstraction-Création. Dès lors, il entreprend une importante activité de céramiste et s'intéresse aux techniques les plus diverses recherchant de nouvelles formes d'expression plastique par l'utilisation de matériaux tels que la porcelaine, le béton ou les matières phosphorescentes. Réfugié en Argentine durant la guerre, il publie à Buenos Aires en 1946 le Manifeste Blanc, dans lequel il préconise «l'abandon de l'usage des formes connues de l'art pour le développement d'un art basé sur l'unité du temps et de l'espace». L'année suivante, il s'installe définitivement à Milan où il signe son Manifeste spatial déclarant que l'art doit être «fonction de nouvelles techniques et de moyens nouveaux», c'est-à-dire «évolutionnaires». À partir de 1949, Fontana donne à ses oeuvres le nom de Concetto Spaziale. Refusant de traiter la toile comme une simple surface plane destinée à recevoir la peinture, il en fait une sculpture abstraite bidimensionnelle: la toile devient le support de surfaces monochromes avant d'être transformée par des griffures, des entailles (Tagli) ou des perforations (Bucchi). Fontana opère désormais une ouverture physique de ses oeuvres, le support n'est plus à peindre ou à couvrir, il devient le réceptacle d'un acte premier et irréversible : «Je ne veux pas faire un tableau, je veux ouvrir l'espace, créer pour l'art une nouvelle dimension, le rattacher au cosmos, tel qu'il s'étend, infini, au-delà de la surface plate de l'image». Lucio Fontana, in «Manifesto Bianco», 1946, Buenos Aires.

DeLong, Emma DeLongAuthor: Emma De Long, George W. DeLong - George Washington DeLong was a United States Navy officer and explorer.Born in New York City, he was educated at the United States Naval Academy in Newport, Rhode Island. In 1879, backed by James Gordon Bennett, Jr., owner of the New York Herald newspaper, and under the auspices of the US Navy, Lieutenant Commander DeLong sailed from San Francisco, California on the ship USS Jeannette with a plan to find a quick way to the North Pole via the Bering Strait.As well as collecting scientific data and animal specimens, DeLong discovered and claimed three islands (De Long Islands) for the United States in the summer of 1881.The ship became trapped in the ice and eventually was crushed and sank. DeLong and his crew abandoned ship and set out for Siberia in three small boats. After reaching open water, they became separated and one boat, commanded by Executive Officer Charles W. Chipp, was lost; no trace of it was ever found. DeLong's own boat reached land, but only two men sent ahead for aid survived. The third boat, under the command of Chief Engineer George W. Melville, reached the Lena delta and was rescued.DeLong died of starvation near Matvay Hut, Yakutia, Siberia. Melville returned a year later and found the bodies of DeLong and his boat crew. Overall, the doomed voyage took the lives of nineteen expedition members, as well as additional men lost during the search operations.
