PROVENANCE:

CAREL WILLINK (1900-1983)


Untitled

Anonymous sale, Christies Amsterdam, 31 May 1994, lot 64.


Kunsthandel Lambert Tegenbosch, Heusden aan de Maas.
Acquired from the above by the present owner.

signed and dated Willink 23 (lower left)


watercolour, pencil and collage on paper
27 x 20 cm.
Executed in 1923

Carel Willink came in touch with the constructivist movement in the early
1920s and this infuenced his work: some of his collages from 1922, with
right-angled and linear forms, are reminiscent of the collages by Kurt Schwitters
(1887-1948), who was, in turn, infuenced by the form discipline of Theo
van Doesburg (1883-1931). In 1923 Willink reached the pinnacle of his
constructivist period, with compositions constructed from formal elements and
colour planes with no reference to a reality outside the picture plane.

L. Howard, Marlow Moss (1889-1958), Plymouth 2008, no. 39
(illustrated).

First: single lines split up the canvas so that the composition falls apart into
separate planes and the painting becomes a self-contained unit.
Second: single lines make the composition static. Third: the double-line or
a multiplicity of lines renders a continuity of related and inter-related rhythm
in space possible, which makes the composition dynamic instead of static.

PROPERTY FROM THE COLLECTION OF

HUGO TUTEIN NOLTHENIUS


(1863-1944)
(LOTS 9-33)

Fig. 1

Christies is pleased to offer part of the important collection of Hugo Tutein


Nolthenius.
Tutein Nolthenius was a chemist by training who went into industry and
from 1898 to 1920 was the director of the Calv fne oil factory (NOF) in
Delft. He was a man of many talents, who enjoyed driving cars, skating,
and had a passion for art. He himself was an amateur photographer,
ceramist and glass-painter, but he was also a patron of the arts and one of
the early 20th centurys great Dutch collectors.
Hugo Tutein Nolthenius grew up in a household which appreciated
art, as it had been one of the interests of his banker father. In the early
1880s Hugo attended the Polytecnic School in Delft, and it is likely that
he attended the classes given by the professor of decorative arts Adolf le
Comte, who was an innovator in the feld of ceramics. Later Hugo had his
own kiln and experimented with his nephew Harm Kamerlingh Onnes and
with Bart van der Leck to produce ceramics.
His interest in art even spilt over into his professional life, and in 1894
Tutein Nolthenius commissioned an advertising poster from Jan Toorop,
which advertised Delftsche Slaolie for the NOF Company. This lithograph
is the best known example of Dutch Art Nouveau (Fig. 1).
For his own home in Delft Hugo Tutein Nolthenius commissioned stained
glass windows from Johan Thorn Prikker, as well as portraits of himself and
his sister and brother. In addition to the works he commissioned, Tutein
Nolthenius also collected both Chinese works of art, and work by sculptors
as John Rdecker, Jan Altorf, Lambertus Zijl and Joseph Mendes da Costa,
paintings by Floris Verster, Menso Kamerlingh Onnes, Bart van der Leck,

Hugo Tutein Nolthenius

Jacob Maris, Isaac Israls, Chris Beekman and Vincent van Gogh. Tutein
Nolthenus owned twelve paintings by Van Gogh,The Potato eaters was
among them (now in the Krller-Mller museum, Otterlo).
Hugo Tutein Nolthenius was adviced by Hendricus Petrus Bremmer
(1871-1956), the artist, collector, author, teacher, and the most important
Dutch art advisor and art critic of the frst half of the 20th century. Tutein
Noltenius sister Julie followed Bremmers art classes and so Bremmer
and Tutein Nolthenius made their acquaintance. At a certain point the
collection of Tutein Nolthenius was considered to be so important that
Bremmer organised lectures based upon the collection in 1924-25.
Another known pupil of H.P. Bremmer was zealous collector Helene
Krller-Mller, who bought her frst three paintings by Vincent van Gogh
under Bremmers guidance in 1909. Their alliance resulted in one of the
largest private Dutch collections of modern art, which now forms the core
of the Krller-Mller museum, Otterlo.
Bremmer encouraged and supported many young modern artists during his
life. Both Bart van der Leck and Piet Mondriaan were supported fnancially
and Bremmer would advice his wealthy clientele to purchase work by
artists as Charley Toorop, John Rdecker, Lambertus Zijl, Gino Severini and
Odilon Redon. Other artists were advised by Bremmer on how and what to
paint. Bremmer was extremely infuential, which is refected in many Dutch
public and private collections, such as the collection presented in this sale.
Hugo Tutein Nolthenius was generous with his collection and allowed
objects from it to go on public exhibtion on a number of occasions. In
2008 part of the collection was exhibited in Delft at the Prinsenhof in order
to celebrate both the collector and his remarkable collection.

The original painting of the same composition was created in 1918 and
was right away purchased by Helene Krller-Mller for her collection. A
photo-lithographic print was produced in 1919 to be used as a poster (with
two text banners added) for the exhibition of Van der Lecks work Voor de
Kunst (For Art) in Utrecht.
De Ruiter embodies Van der Lecks complete reduction of forms to their
base components. The image of a rider on a horse is depicted by means
of associated fragmented angular shapes whose only context is a blue strip
of line suggesting sky and two red rectangles suggesting a base or ground
for the image.

Tutein Nolthenius was an enthusiast amateur ceramicist,
who had his own kiln at home, where he would produce
ceramics infuenced by Asian examples. He would also
support and encourage Bart van der Leck in experimenting
with new methods and materials.
In July 1934 Bart van der Leck wrote to Bremmer: From
Nolthenius I received several necessities for the pottery, for
which i am very grateful. He is so amazingly kind! We
discussed that I would not have had the opportunity to do
these things with any other potter. I must add, this is surely
due to his kind cooperation. Now I have to do several
tests and I need some more materials before i can make
something, but that will come (C. Hilhorst, Vriendschap
op afstand. De correspondentie tussen Bart van der Leck
en H.P. Bremmer, Bussum 1999, p. 166).

This abstract work by Chris Beekman is one of the few known non
fgurative paintings by the artist. Beekman met Bart van der Leck for the frst
time in 1915 and followed him in his movement towards abstraction and
in the reduction of a visual reality. Both moved to Het Gooi in 1916. Chris
Beekman met Vilmos Huszar already earlier, when he was still living in The
Hague. Although Beekman never became a member of De Stijl group,
between 1917-1920 his work was based on a geometrical grid, with
primary colours or just black, grey and white. Around 1930 Beekmans
work would be infuenced by his political communist ideas, showing a
return to fguration.
Chris Beekman used the composition of the present lot for an illustration
in the book: C. Beekman, S. Goudsmit, De Gast-vertellers, een serie
pogingen tot een eenigszins fatsoenlijk Cabaret in klein- kwarto, no. 1 kleine

In 1910 a collaboration between sculptors J.C. Altorf and Chris Lanooy
started on the initiative of art collector and Maecenas H.P. Bremmer (18711956). The artists started on a series of animal sculptures, experimenting with
different forms of casting clay, including porcelain. The sculptures produced
during this partnership were limited to a maximum edition of twelve and
provided with a specifc mark signifying the collaboration between the three
men. The mark consists of a triangle with the initials A (Altorf), L (Lanooy) and
B (Bremmer) at each corner and the edition of the sculpture placed in the
middle. Bremmer included one piece of each series of sculptures produced
by Altorf and Lanooy in his private collection. How many different sculptures
the artists made is currently unknown, but in a period of a few years at least
fve were conceived: an elephant, an owl, a cockatoo, a seated monkey
and a lying bison.

In 1913 Beekman went to Paris were he was inspired by the work of


Georges Seurat. After his return in 1914, Beekman focussed on the city
of The Hague in his work, where he resided at the time. He documented
many streets that were still under construction. It has been suggested that
the present lot depicts the Ieplaan, The Hague. In 1914 Beekman made
a lithograph with a similar subject, titled Zonsopgang, now in the KrllerMller museum in Otterlo.

The present lot depicts a small barge, nonetheless equipped with a


sail, located within a waterway presumably near Amsterdam. This
presumption is strengthened by the presence of a rounded tower,
upper right along the horizon, which can be identifed only as that
surmounted by a cupola of the Paleis voor Volksvlijt. Thus the view is
from a canal to the south of Amsterdam looking back to the city, which
explains the right-hand position of the Paleis voor Volksvlijt, located
near the Amstel, at right.
In this painting there is also a smokestack visible at the left along
the horizon. Here, again, one can think only of it as belonging to
the Royal Wax Candle Factory on the Hobbemakade behind the
Rijksmuseum, a building complex and an area well known to the
artist since his 1895 residence on the Ruysdaelkade, the bank of the
Boerenwetering opposite to that of the Hobbemakade.
In reference to this industrial subject and the impressionist style in
which it is executed, one could easily group this painting with similar
ship-oriented subjects executed by the artist during the fnal years
of the nineteenth century. (R.P. Welsh, Catalogue Raisonn of the
Naturalistic works (until early 1911), Blaricum/Paris 1998, p. 246).

From 1909 until 1913 Max Slevogt spent the summer months at Godramstein
near Landau in the Palatinate, where his wifes parents lived. Involved in the
Berlin Secession movement with Max Liebermann and Lovis Corinth, life in a
small village in a beautiful natural setting provided a welcome change of scene
for his wife and their two children. Slevogt painted many landscapes in the
garden of the villa and the immediate surroundings in 1909-10. He abandoned
the dark palette he had been taught to use at the art academy in Munich, to
explore under the sway of French Impressionism and infuenced by Vincent van
Gogh. These landscapes are characterized by a summery joie de vivre and are
painted in exquisitely glowing, intense colours.
Since the late 1890s Slevogt had been engaged in an investigation of the
human fgure. Infuences of French artists became visible. In the autumn of 1889,
Paul and Bruno Cassirer organised an exhibition with work by Monet and other
French painters in Berlin, along with some of Slevogts paintings. The freshness
of handling and the vibrancy of the palette were an eye-opener for the artist.
Slevogt was particularly taken by Manet. I admired Manet so much, because,
in him, I found what makes the world so beautiful (op. cit. B. Geil a.o., German
Impressionist Landscape Painting Liebermann-Corinth-Slevogt, Stuttgart 2010).
In Selbstbildnis im Garten the artist is in direct contact with the viewer, with
his ever-present cigar he seems calm and confdent. The work combines the
liveliness of the sun-lit summer landscape and a self portrait of the artist at the
peak of his artistic career.
The frst owner of Selbstbildnis im Garten, Carl Steinbart (1852-1923) was a
banker, art dealer and art collector. He owned one of the largest collections of
Slevogts work, consisting of at least 80 paintings. Slevogt portrayed Steinbart
and his family members several times.

The present lot shows a corner in the garden of Neukastel, with fowering
plants and a sunlit garden wall, painted in 1917. Originally owned by
the artists parents-in-law, the Finklers, whose daughter Slevogt had married
in 1898, the property passed to the artist in 1914. In 1917 Slevogt was
forced to stay in Neukastel during World War I. This was distressing for
him, since he had been appointed supervisor of a master-class painting
studio at the Berlin Academy in that same year. He did make good use of
this long stay at Neukastel and was very productive, resulting in a series
of vibrant pictures showing the estate and its gardens.

enabling a detail of the garden to unfurl all its splendor of colors. The piece
of garden has been transformed into a joyously experienced minor miracle
of light, which has offered itself unexpectedly to the artist while the war has
cast its shadow on the outside world. The glowing beauty of an intimate
garden has become for Slevogt a moment of peaceful remoteness that
he has been overjoyed to see, a light impression whose beauty the artist
literally wanted to capture for himself. (B. Geil a.o., German Impressionist
Landscape Painting, Stuttgart 2010, p. 218)

G. van Zype, Notice sur Tho Van Rysselberghe, Brussels, 1932,


p. 35 (dated 1897) .

This painting will be included in the forthcoming catalogue raisonn


supplement being published by Ronald Feltkamp.

from around 1888, and for the next decade, he became one of the leading
proponents of this style in Belgium.

This painting will be included in the forthcoming van Rysselberghe catalogue


raisonn prepared by Pascal de Sadeleer and Olivier Bertrand.

By the end of the 19th Century, at the time La Tour de Furnes was painted,
Van Rysselberghe had begun to abandon the rigorously methodical
technique and its strict division of colours, turning instead towards a looser
handling and a less divisionist touch. In La Tour de Furnes, Van Rysselberghe
has still applied colour in accordance to colour harmonies, but these nuances
of colour are conveyed in a more expressive manner, suffusing the scene
with an atmospheric, sensitively conveyed interplay of light and shadows.
The artist wrote in a letter to his friend Paul Signac in 1899, the year after La
Tour de Furnes was painted, I never considered division, or pure pigment,
as an aesthetic principle even less as a philosophy but rather as a means
of expression. As soon as this medium seems incomplete to me I change
my tools (Van Rysselberghe, quoted in Tho van Rysselberghe, exh. cat.,
Brussels, 2006, p. 66).

Painted circa 1898, La Tour de Furnes demonstrates Tho van Rysselberghes


Neo-Impressionist style at a pivotal time during which he was incorporating a
greater level of naturalism into his pointillist technique. In La Tour de Furnes,
Van Rysselberghe has depicted a street scene bathed in a softly glowing
light, overlooked by the majestic church tower in Veurne, a picturesque
market town in Belgium, known as Furnes in French.
At the end of the 1890s, the time that La Tour de Furnes was painted, Van
Rysselberghe had begun to develop a more unique style of Pointillism, using
slightly larger, more loosely applied brushstrokes, as can be seen in the
present painting. This was a contrast to the rigorously methodical technique
that had frst been pioneered by Georges Seurat, and embraced by Paul
Signac in the mid-1880s, in which small brushstrokes of colour were applied
to the canvas in adherence to scientifc laws of colour. Van Rysselberghe
had frst been exposed to Pointillism, often also known as Divisionism, while
he was in Paris in 1886, with his friend, the Belgian poet, Emile Verhaeren.
The two saw Seurats Sunday Afternoon at La Grande Jatte (1884-86, The
Art Institute of Chicago) at the 1886 exhibition of the Socit des Artistes
Indpendants. This work and its radical Neo-Impressionist style made an
indelible impact on Van Rysselberghe and he consequently asked Seurat to
exhibit at the avant-garde Brussels group, Les XX, which Van Rysselberghe,
amongst others, had founded in 1884. Having witnessed French NeoImpressionism, Van Rysselberghe adopted the pointillist technique in his work

56

In a letter dated 8 February 1925 from Van Rysselberghe to Belgian poet


and critic, Andr Fontainas, the artist refers to an important oil, which
depicts the church tower in Veurne, that was exhibited at the Vienna
Secession in 1899; this is most likely the present work (R. Feltkamp, Tho
Van Rysselberghe, 1862-1926, Catalogue Raisonn, Brussels, 2003, p.
320). The inclusion of this work in that seminal exhibition has also been
confrmed from the personal and unpublished artists notebooks in the
possession of Pascal de Sadeleer and Olivier Bertrand. The Secessionists,
a group of artists including Gustav Klimt, Koloman Moser and Oskar
Kokoschka, greatly admired Van Rysselberghes style and technique,
particularly the highly decorative surface of his works, and invited him to
exhibit with them at the close of the 19th Century.

In 1877 James Ensor enrolled at the Acadmie Royale des Beaux-Arts in
Brussels, where he stayed for three years before he left because he felt his
work did not get the recognition it deserved. In the years just after Ensor left
the academy he painted several still lifes that depict different ingredients for
meals, placed on wooden tables in the kitchen: fruit, vegetables, fsh, meat
and poultry were the main focus in these paintings.
The present lot was painted in 1880. The composition is formed by a blue
bottle on the left, a featherless chicken in the middle with its head falling
slightly over the edge of the table and a copper pan on the right, turned
upside down. The composition of the still life is kept simple, the precise form
and identity of the objects is neglected to put emphasis on the intricate play
of light and dark and the subtlety of the colours used in this painting. This
particular composition, featuring the striking blue bottle, was painted by
Ensor four times over the course of forty-fve years and clearly shows Ensors
development as a painter. While the early versions are subtle in colour, the
last painting in this series, painted in 1925, is flled with the bright colours
typical of Ensors later style (X. Tricot, James Ensor, Catalogue Raisonn of
the Paintings, Brussels 2009, no. 144, 453, 540).

Regarding the nudes in his work Delvaux explained that they participate
purely as a presence without any particular role. They form part of the
pictorial structure, the aim of which is purely poetic they are active only
in the lyrical sense; they have no mission in the picture beyond that of
the poetic (Delvaux quoted in J. Meuris, Paul Delvaux: Sept Dialogues,
Brussels, 1987, pp. 22 & 58). The essential mystery of the female nude
and the trains, trams and stations, we see so often in his work, was one
that never tired him. In the present lot Delvauxs focus is entirely on the two
female nudes with no background. But these elements, so essential to his
painting, held little or no symbolic value, he felt. They were ultimately only
pictorial tools by which he sought to generate the specifc atmosphere of
poetic mystery that he wanted his art to convey. Painting is not only the
pleasure of putting colours on canvas he once asserted, it is also the
expression of a poetic feelingWhat interests me is plastic expression,
the rediscovery of poetry in painting, which had been lost for centuries
(Delvaux quoted in Paul Delvaux 1897-1994, exh. cat., Royal Museums
of Fine Art, Brussels, p. 21).

78

In this large work on paper we see two beautifully executed women


holding hands. The sheet is monumental of size which makes the work,
because of its incredible detail, all the more impressive. The face of the
woman on the right is not entirely visible. It almost appears as if she is
whispering something in the ear of her friend. It looks like we are part of
an intimate moment. The lesbian theme was recurring in Delvauxs oeuvre
from the 1930s on. It has been suggested that Delvaux used it to convey
his disappointment with his heterosexual relationships, since he was not
particularly succesful with women. A dominant mother, a deep love for a
woman his parents did not approve of and a failed marriage might have
made him explore, artistically, the love between two people of the same
sex. It could also be the reason why Delvaux was so taken with the theme
women in general. They are the mysterious creatures appearing in almost
every work he made. Mysterious and sexual perhaps, but never in contact
with the viewer. The nudes always seem occupied with themselves or each
other and make no eye contact, like in the present lot.

O. Bertrand, Rik Wouters, Antwerp 1995, no. 57 (illustrated).

Executed in 1911, La Femme la blouse jaune is one of the paintings


by Rik Wouters that show his ability and interest for capturing impressions,
rather than making realistic images. We see a pretty young woman posing
in a summer hat and a blouse, bathed in a surrounding of vibrant colours.
Only an impression of the woman can be seen, a swift moment where
she is an expression of light and colour. The visual experience is key in
Wouters paintings. The life-likeness of the work is not expressed by many
details, but rather by the indeterminacy of the suggestion, combined with
many different visual sensations.
The portraits and interiors painted by Wouters in 1911 and 1912
demonstrate his talent for combining the three-dimensional with the twodimensional surface of the painting. He fnds solutions in simple colour
contrasts and a few distinct contours. He achieves a certain expressionism
in his forms by using a painters knife (spatula) in addition to a brush.
Wouters was a great admirer of James Ensor, who was a master of the
knife. His love for Ensors refned colourist effects and forms expresses itself
in the present lot, where the pleads, the fabric and even the expression
on the face of the woman are the result of Wouters exquisite handling
of a knife and coarse brushstrokes (H. Todts, Rik Wouters. Des origines
loeuvre, exh. cat., Brussels 2002, p. 36).

82

The use of a knife is a clear expression of Wouters extreme spontaneity.


Wouters did not start a work from a scheduled plan. His widow Nel wrote
about his working process in 1944: Rik never knows beforehand what
he is going to paint and nothing is planned in advance. (...) For him a
painting is the personal life around him, the intimacy of his interior. (...)
Again, he never plans a picture (G. Audinet, Rik Wouters. Des origines
loeuvre, exh. cat., Brussels 2002, p. 218). Wouters truly dreaded
working on the same picture again after a frst session, and this may
explain the sketch-like appearance of many of his works including La
Femme la Blouse jaune. Sudden moments, impressions, or incidences of
light could bring him to a ceaseless and enthusiastic creativity that forced
him to paint. Especially the frst sessions were lengthy and time-consuming,
and drove Nel to desperation sometimes.
The combination of impressionism and expressionism in Wouters paintings,
which can also be seen in this work, makes it especially diffcult to label his
style. Infuenced by James Ensor and from 1909 on by Czanne, Wouters
developed a very individual and infuential style of painting, which was
later adopted as Brabants fauvisme. Nevertheless, there has never been
consensus of opinion among contemporaries and even among later critics,
concerning the name of this style and its place in the canon of art history.

(illustrated p. 156).
Almost the entirety of the painting is flled with the wooden interior
of a windmill, however the attention of the viewer is drawn to the
painter and his model in the lower left corner. It seems like a regular
painting in painting scene, but in reality there is something else
happening. The painter and his model are shocked when they
discover that the painting came to life and the boy who is pictured
tries to escape out of the painting. We see the painter throwing his
arms in the air in dismay.
This painting is meant to show the relationship and the boundaries
between art and reality (D. Adelaar, J. van Asperen, M. Roding,
Willem van Leusden, Essays over een verhard romanticus, Utrecht
1990, pp. 154-158).

After the retirement of his father, in 1909, Jan Mankes left Delft for the rustic
countryside of Friesland in the north of The Netherlands.
Here Mankes had more room for his animals, which were his favourite subject
to paint. He worked with small animals like rabbits, goats and mice. However,
he specifcally loved birds. Owls, crows and the thrush, probably sent to Mankes
by his maecenas A.A.M. Pauwels, who would supply him with all the materials,
including animals, he would need.
Mankes was especially confdent about this present lot Lijster tussen bloesem. In
February 1912 he wrote a letter to A.A.M. Pauwels: Het deed me bijzonder
plezier dat er weer wat bij verkocht is, temeer daar we daar sterk aan twijfelen,
wie weet, komt het nog niet heel goed als de zaak nog wat open blijft, de lijster
zal wel die zijn met de witte bloesems, stellig een der mooiste dingen, wat t
zelfportret is zullen we nog wel hooren. (op.cit. J. De Lange, Jan Mankes: een
kunstenaarsleven in brieven, Zwolle 2013, p. 262)
The thinly painted canvas with its transparent layers and the oblong format refects
Mankes interest in Japanese art. His inspiration came from the Gowanbook
he recieved from a friend in The Hague. The little booklet contained a few
reproductions of Japanese prints and drawings. It stimulated Mankes symbolistic
phase, in which he focused more on inner thruth and ideal beauty than the
technique that was truest to nature. The three values Mankes pursued in his work:
beauty, purity and simplicity, can therefore be recognised in the Lijster tussen
bloesem, where the bird is the ultimate example of Mankes characteristic style.

This lot is owned in whole or in part by Christies.


~ Import restrictions may apply or a CITES
Licence might be required as this lot contains
material from endangered species.

IMPORTANT NOTICES
CHRISTIES INTEREST IN PROPERTY
CONSIGNED FOR AUCTION
From time to time, Christies may offer a lot which it
owns in whole or in part. Such property is identified in the
catalogue with the symbol next to its lot number.
On occasion, Christies has a direct financial interest in
lots consigned for sale, which may include guaranteeing
a minimum price or making an advance to the consignor
that is secured solely by consigned property. Where
Christies holds such financial interest on its own we
identify such lots with the symbol next to the lot number.
Where Christies has financed all or part of such interest
through a third party the lots are identified in the catalogue
with the symbol u. When a third party agrees to finance
all or part of Christies interest in a lot, it takes on all
or part of the risk of the lot not being sold, and will be
remunerated in exchange for accepting this risk based on
a fixed fee if the third party is the successful bidder or on
the final hammer price in the event that the third party
is not the successful bidder. The third party may also bid
for the lot. Where it does so, and is the successful bidder,
the remuneration may be netted against the final purchase
price. If the lot is not sold, the third party may incur a
loss. Please see http://www.christies.com/financialinterest/ for a more detailed explanation of minimum price
guarantees and third party financing arrangements.
Where Christies has an ownership or financial interest in
every lot in the catalogue, Christies will not designate each
lot with a symbol, but will state its interest in the front of
the catalogue.

CONDITION REPORTS
Christies catalogues include references to condition only
in descriptions of multiple works (such as prints, books
and wine). For all other property, only alterations or
replacement components are listed. Please contact the
Specialist Department for a condition report on a particular
lot. Condition reports are provided as a service to interested
clients. Prospective Buyers should note that descriptions of
property are not warranties and that each lot is sold as is.

PROPERTY INCORPORATING MATERIALS


FROM ENDANGERED AND OTHER
PROTECTED SPECIES
Property made of or incorporating (irrespective of
percentage) endangered and other protected species of
wildlife are marked with the symbol ~ in the catalogue.
Such material includes, among other things, ivory,
tortoiseshell, crocodile skin, rhinoceros horn, whale
bone and certain species of coral, together with Brazilian
rosewood. Prospective purchasers are advised that several
countries prohibit altogether the importation of property
containing such materials, and that other countries
require a permit (e.g., a CITES permit) from the relevant
regulatory agencies in the countries of exportation as well
as importation. Accordingly, clients should familiarise
themselves with the relevant customs laws and regulations
prior to bidding on any property with wildlife material if
they intend to import the property into another country.
Please note that it is the clients responsibility to determine
and satisfy the requirements of any applicable laws or
regulations applying to the export or import of property
containing endangered and other protected wildlife material.
The inability of a client to export or import property
containing endangered and other protected wildlife material
is not a basis for cancellation or rescission of the sale. Please
note also that lots containing potentially regulated wildlife
material are marked as a convenience to our clients, but
Christies does not accept liability for errors or for failing to
mark lots containing protected or regulated species.

...HOME JAMES!

per day for smaller lots excl. VAT.
In accordance with Christies Conditions of Sale (Section
B.9) printed at the back of this catalogue, the risk of loss
or damage to purchased Lots shall be borne by the Buyer
from the moment when the Buyers bid is accepted as the
highest bid by Christies at the auction. This means that
Buyers have a legal obligation to pay for their purchases
in full in accordance with the conditions of business, even
if the Lots are subsequently lost or damaged. Buyers are
advised to arrange their own insurance cover as soon as
practicable after the sale.

BUYING AT CHRISTIES
CONDITIONS OF SALE

ABSENTEE BIDS

Christies Conditions of Sale and limited warranty are set


out later in this catalogue. Bidders are strongly encouraged
to read these as they set out the terms on which property is
bought at auction.

Absentee bids are written instructions from prospective buyers


directing Christies to bid on their behalf up to a maximum
amount specified for each lot. Christies staff will attempt to
execute an absentee bid at the lowest possible price taking into
account the reserve price. Absentee bids submitted on no
reserve lots will, in the absence of a higher bid, be executed
at approximately 50% of the low pre sale estimate or at the
amount of the bid if it is less than 50% of the low pre-sale
estimate.The auctioneer may execute absentee bids directly
from the rostrum, clearly identifying these as absentee bids,
book bids, order bids or commission bids. Absentee
Bids Forms are available in this catalogue, at any Christies
location, or online at christies.com.
Absentee bids must be received at least 24 hours before the
auction begins.

ESTIMATES
Estimates are based upon prices recently paid at auction
for comparable property, condition, rarity, quality and
provenance. Estimates are subject to revision. Buyers
should not rely upon estimates as a representation or
prediction of actual selling prices. Estimates do not include
the buyers premium or VAT. Where Estimate on
Request appears, please contact the Specialist Department
for further information.

RESERVES
The reserve is the confidential minimum price the
consignor will accept and will not exceed the low
pre-sale estimate. Lots that are not subject to a reserve are
identified by the symbol next to the lot number

BUYERS PREMIUM
Christies charges a premium to the buyer on the Hammer
Price of each lot sold at the following rates:
30.25% of the Hammer Price of each lot up to and
including 30,000, plus 24.2% of the Hammer Price
between 30,001 and 1,200,000, plus 14.52% of any
amount in excess of 1,200,000. Buyers premium is
calculated on the basis of each lot individually.

PRE-AUCTION VIEWING
Pre-auction viewings are open to the public free of
charge. Christies specialists are available to give advice and
condition reports at viewings or by appointment.

BIDDER REGISTRATION
Prospective buyers who have not previously bid or
consigned with Christies should bring:
Individuals: government-issued photo identification (such
as a driving licence, national identity card, or passport)
and, if not shown on the ID document, proof of current
address, for example a utility bill or bank statement.
Corporate clients: a certificate of incorporation or if
located in the Netherlands original excerpt of Chamber of
Commerce not older than 4 weeks.
For other business structures such as trusts, offshore
companies or partnerships, please contact Christies Credit
Department at +31 (0)20 575 52 11 for advice on the
information you should supply.
A financial reference in the form of a recent bank statement
or a reference from your bank. Christies can supply a form of
wording for the bank reference if necessary.
Persons registering to bid on behalf of someone who has
not previously bid or consigned with Christies should bring
identification documents not only for themselves but also for
the party on whose behalf they are bidding, together with a
signed letter of authorisation from that party.
To allow sufficient time to process the information, new
clients are encouraged to register at least 48 hours in
advance of a sale.
Prospective buyers should register for a numbered bidding
paddle at least 30 minutes before the auction. Clients who
have not made a purchase from any Christies office within
the last two years and those wishing to spend more than
on previous occasions, will be asked to supply a new bank
reference. For assistance with references, please contact
Christies Credit Department at +31 (0)20 575 52 11.

REGISTERING TO BID ON SOMEONE


ELSES BEHALF
Persons bidding on behalf of an existing client should bring
a signed letter from the client authorising the bidder to
act on the clients behalf. Please note that Christies does
not accept payments from third parties. Christies can only
accept payment from the client, and not from the person
bidding on their behalf.

BIDDING
The auctioneer accepts bids from those present in the
saleroom, from telephone bidders, or by absentee written
bids left with Christies in advance of the auction. The
auctioneer may also execute bids on behalf of the seller
up to the amount of the reserve. The auctioneer will not
specifically identify bids placed on behalf of the seller.
Under no circumstances will the auctioneer place any bid
on behalf of the seller at or above the reserve. Bid steps
are shown on the Absentee Bids Form at the back of this
catalogue.

TELEPHONE BIDS
Telephone bids cannot be accepted for lots estimated
below 2,200. Arrangements must be confirmed with
the Bid Department at least 24 hours prior to the auction
at +31 (0)20 575 59 50. Fax: +31 (0)20 575 59 74.
Arrangements to bid in languages other than Dutch and
English must be made well in advance of the sale date.
Telephone bids may be recorded. By bidding on the
telephone, prospective purchasers consent to the recording
of their conversation.

AUCTIONEERS DISCRETION
The auctioneer can, acting reasonably: (a) refuse any bid; (b)
move the bidding backwards or forwards in any way he or she
may decide or change the bidding order; (c) withdraw or divide
any lot; (d) combine any two or more lots; (e) in the case of
a mistake (whether or not made by Christies) or a dispute as
to the successful bidder (whether during or after the auction,
including after the fall of the hammer) restart or continue the
bidding, cancel the sale of the lot or resell or reoffer a lot. If any
dispute arises after the auction the auctioneers decision is final.

SUCCESSFUL BIDS
The fall of the auctioneers hammer indicates the final bid,
at which time the buyer assumes full responsibility for the
lot. The results of absentee bids will be mailed after the
auction. Successful bidders will pay the price of the final
bid plus premium plus any applicable VAT.

PAYMENT
Buyers are expected to pay for purchases immediately after
the auction. Payment can be made in cash, or by bank transfer
in Euros to Christies Stichting Derdengelden: ABN AMRO

Please note that Christies will not accept payments for
purchased Lots from any party other than the buyer, unless

the sale.

LOCAL TAXES AND VAT


If a Lot is marked + or !, it will have a special VAT
status and will be subject to higher rates as follows:
! : Lot is imported from outside the EU. For each Lot the
Buyers Premium is calculated as 37.75% of the Hammer
Price up to a value of 30,000, plus 31.7% of the Hammer
Price between 30,001 and 1,200,000, plus 22.02% of any
amount in excess of 1,200,000.

+ : 21% VAT applies to both the Hammer Price and the


Buyers Premium. The Buyers Premium is calculated for
each lot as 51.25% of the Hammer Price up to a value
of 30,000, plus 45.2% of the Hammer Price between
30,001 and 1,200,000, plus 35.52% of any amount in
excess of 1,200,000.

VAT
REFUNDS FOR BUYERS OUTSIDE THE EU
VAT charged on both the Hammer Price and the Premium
may be refunded provided the following conditions are met:
- Property must be exported from the EU within 2 months
of the date of the sale.
- Christies must be provided with proof of export bearing
the original customs stamp from the point of export from the
EU. Netherlands tax authorities will not accept photocopies.
- The purchase invoice must be addressed to a party resident
outside of the EU.
Christies remains liable to account for VAT on all Lots
unless the conditions listed above are satisfied. Therefore
Buyers will generally be asked to initially deposit all amounts
of VAT invoiced. To apply for a refund the appropriate
export evidence must be sent to Christies accounts
department clearly marked VAT REFUND. There will
be an administration charge of 35 payable to Christies for
this service.
An immediate refund of VAT is possible if shipping is
arranged by Christies within 2 months of the date of the sale.

SHIPPING
A shipping form is enclosed with each invoice to buyers
outside of the Netherlands. It is the buyers responsibility
to pick up purchases or make all shipping arrangements.
After payment has been made in full, Christies can arrange
property packing and shipping at the buyers request and
expense. Buyers should request an estimate for any large
items or property of high value that require professional
packing. For more information please contact the Shipping
Department at +31 (0)20 575 52 52.

INSURANCE AND STORAGE


Buyers are advised to arrange their own insurance cover as
soon as practicable after the sale.
Please note that (subject to availability of space at
our premises) all uncollected purchases may be transferred
to third party storage at your expense if you fail to arrange
timely collection or to issue instructions for shipping.

VAT
BUYERS FROM WITHIN THE EU
Buyers who are resident outside The Netherlands, but within
the EU, and who have obtained a valid VAT identification
number that has been made known to Christies before or
immediately after the sale, and who furthermore comply with
all other conditions specified by Christies, will be eligible
for a VAT rate of 0 %. The buyer guarantees to Christies
the correctness of all information provided. Lots that are sold
in accordance with the above shall be ineligible to be resold
under the Margin Scheme.

EXPORT/IMPORT PERMIT
Overseas buyers are advised to familiarise themselves with any
restrictions or licence requirements relating to their intended
purchases. In case of doubt, buyers are advised to consult their
local customs authority or a reputable international shipper.
Export licences in the Netherlands can usually be obtained
within two to four weeks. Sellers and Buyers are advised
that the Ministry of Education, Culture and Sciences may
designate cultural objects as protected cultural objects, in
which case restrictions with regard to the exportation and
transfer of title of these objects apply. Sellers and Buyers
are further advised that certain objects may fall within the
scope of EU-regulation no 3911/92, as a consequence of
which an export licence from the Ministry of Education,
Culture and Sciences may be required if the objects are to
be exported to a country outside of the EU.
An export licence issued by the Ministry of Agriculture,
Nature and Food Quality, Department CITES will
be required for the export of any item made of, or
incorporating (irrespective of percentage) animal material
such as ivory, whalebone, tortoiseshell, rhinoceros horn
etc. and this generally takes up to 8 weeks. Clients are
advised to check with the regulating body in the country
of importation regarding items within this category - some
countries have an absolute ban on the importation of
certain materials.

principal for payment.
(c) Anyone wishing to bid at an auction must fill out
and sign a registration form before the beginning of
the auction.

(A) BACKGROUND TO TERMS USED IN


THESE CONDITIONS
1. In the conditions set out below, some terms are used
regularly that need explanation. They are as follows:
- The Buyer means the person with the highest bid
accepted by the auctioneer, assuming this highest bid
is at least equal to the Reserve, if any;
- The Buyers premium means the charge payable
by the Buyer as a percentage of the Hammer Price, at
the rates set out in Article B.4.;
- Condition report means additional information
on a particular lot in the catalogue, as supplied by
Christies;
- The Consignment Agreement means the written
agreement between Christies and the Seller containing
the instruction from the Seller to Christies to sell the
Lots during one or several auctions;
- Forgery means a Lot constituting an imitation
originally conceived and executed as a whole with
a fraudulent intention to deceive as to authorship,
origin, age, period, culture or source where the
correct description as to such matters is not reflected
by the description in the catalogue and which at the
date of the auction had a value materially less than
it would have had if it had been in accordance with
the description in the catalogue. Accordingly, no
Lot shall be capable of being a Forgery by reason
of any damage and/or restoration work of any kind
(including repainting);
- The Hammer Price means the amount of the
highest bid accepted by the auctioneer in relation to
a Lot;
- Margin Scheme means that the Buyers Premium
includes VAT as set out in Article B.4;
- Lot means any object or set of objects accepted
by Christies for the purpose of selling the same at
the auction and described in the catalogue under one
lot number;
- Proceeds of Sale means the Hammer Price less the
commission and V.A.T. chargeable thereon and less all
costs payable to Christies;
- Purchase Price means the Hammer Price plus
the Buyers premium and all other costs payable
to Christies (including the resale royalty) plus any
applicable VAT;
- The Reserve means the amount below which
Christies agree with the Seller that the Lot cannot
be sold;
- The Seller means the person offering an object
or a set of objects to Christies for sale at one of the
auctions held by Christies;

2. CHRISTIES ACTING AS REPRESENTATIVES


(a) In effecting sales Christies are acting as
representatives for the Seller. Christies do not warrant
to the Intending Buyers that the Sellers have the right
of disposal of the objects sent in, nor that the objects
are not charged with real rights or leased out, nor that
all legal requirements relating to any export or import
of the objects have been complied with.
(b) Christies are not obliged to disclose the name of
the Seller to the Intending Buyer or the Buyer.
(c) Christies recommend Intending Buyers to attend
the auction and to make bids themselves.
(d) If an Intending Buyer gives Christies instructions
to bid on his behalf, by using the form printed
after the catalogue entries, Christies shall - without
charging any additional fee - use reasonable efforts to
do so, provided the instructions are received not later
than 24 hours before the auction. If Christies receive
commission bids on a particular Lot for identical
amounts, and at auction these bids are the highest
bids for the Lot, it will be sold to the person whose
bid was received first. Commission bids are accepted
by Christies subject to other commitments at the
time of the sale, and the conduct of the sale may be
such that Christies are unable to bid as requested.
Christies do not accept liability whatsoever for
failure to make a commission bid or for failure to
correctly execute a commission bid. Intending Buyers
should therefore always attend personally if they wish
to be certain of bidding.
(e) If an Intending Buyer makes arrangements with
Christies not later than 24 hours before the auction,
Christies shall - without charging any additional fee use reasonable efforts to contact the Intending Buyer
to enable him to participate in bidding by telephone.
Christies does not accept liability whatsoever for
failure to make a telephone bid or for failure to
correctly execute a telephone bid.

(B) THE BUYER


1. THE BUYER
(a) The Buyer is the person accepted as the highest
bidder by Christies acting as agents for the Seller. The
decision whether or not to accept a bid shall be made
by Christies. Subject to the provisions of the section
marked Auctioneers Discretion set out in the Buying

118

3. DESCRIPTIONS IN THE CATALOGUE AND


VIDEO IMAGES
(a) All statements of Christies in the catalogue and
condition reports as to the (presumptive) designer,
author, writer, origin, date, age, genuineness, source,
provenance, condition or estimated Hammer Price
of any Lot are statements of opinion only and
shall never imply any guarantee by Christies. All
illustrations in the catalogue serve merely as guidance
for Intending Buyers; they do not provide any
decisive information as to pattern, colours and degree
of damage of any Lot.
(b) Lots may be in imperfect condition. The absence
of any reference in the catalogue to defects in a Lot
does not imply that such Lot is free from defects, nor
does reference to particular defects imply the absence
of others.
(c) Intending Buyers will have to form an opinion
regarding the matters discussed in paragraph (a)
and paragraph (b) above by personal inspection or
otherwise during the previews.

(d) Without prejudice to the provisions in paragraph


(a) and paragraph (b) above, neither Christies nor their
employees or representatives give any guarantee as to
the correctness or completeness of any information
supplied either verbally or in writing about any Lot.
(e) If within one year after the auction the Buyer
proves that a Lot bought by him is a Forgery, the sale
of the Lot shall be cancelled and the Purchase Price
shall be refunded by Christies to the Buyer. The
Buyer should note that this refund can be obtained
only if the following conditions are met:
(i) the Buyer has notified Christies in writing
within one year from the date of the auction that
in his view the Lot is a Forgery;
(ii) the Buyer has within fourteen days after the date
of the notification referred to hereabove under
(i) returned the Lot to Christies in the same
condition as it were in when the Buyer took
delivery of the Lot; and
(iii) the Buyer has at latest upon return of the Lot
produced evidence satisfactory to Christies
that the Lot is a Forgery and that he is able to
transfer the title to Christies, free from any third
party claims.
The right to a refund as contained in this paragraph
shall not exist if either (a) the catalogue description
at the auction date corresponded to the generally
accepted opinion of scholars or experts at that time, or
fairly indicated that there was a conflict of opinions; or
(b) it can be demonstrated that a Lot is a Forgery only
by means of either a scientific process not generally
accepted for use until after publication of the catalogue
or a process which at the date of the auction was
unreasonably expensive or impracticable or likely to
have caused damage to the Lot.
In no circumstance shall Christies be obliged to pay
the Buyer any more than the Purchase Price for the
Lot. The Buyer shall have no claim for interest.
Christies shall be entitled to rely on any scientific or
other process to establish that the Lot is not a Forgery,
whether or not such process was used or in use at the
date of the auction.
The right to a refund as contained in this paragraph is
not capable of being transferred and is solely for the
benefit of the Buyer.
The right to a refund as contained in this paragraph
does not apply to coins, medals and jewellery.
(f) At some auctions there will be a video screen.
Mistakes may occur in its operation, and Christies
shall not be liable to the Intending Buyer regarding
either the correspondence of the image to the
Lot being sold or the quality of the image as a
reproduction of the original.
4. STANDARD CHARGES FOR PURCHASERS
(a) Buyers Premium
Christies charges a Buyers Premium calculated at
30.25% of the Hammer Price for each lot up to and
including 30,000, plus 24.2% of the Hammer Price
between 30,001 and 1,200,000, plus 14.52% of
any amount in excess of 1,20,000. Buyers Premium
is calculated on this basis for each lot individually.
The Buyers Premium does not include shipping or
storage charges. These will be charged separately if
shipping or storage is requested by the Buyer.
(b) Artists Resale Right Regulations (Droit de Suite/
Volgrecht):
If the Artists Resale Right Regulations apply to the lot
the buyer also agrees to pay to us an amount equal to
the resale royalty provided for in those Regulations.
Lots affected are identified with the symbol next to
the lot number.

15/02/13

5. V.A.T.
If a Lot is not marked + or ! in the catalogue,
Christies will offer such Lot for sale under the
Margin Scheme.
If a Lot is marked + or !, it will have a special
V.A.T. status and will be subject to higher rates
as follows:
!: Lot is imported from outside the EU. For each
Lot the Buyers Premium is calculated as 37.75% of
the Hammer Price up to a value of 30,000, plus
31.7% of the Hammer Price between 30,001 and
1,200,000, plus 22.02% of any amount in excess of
1,200,000.
+: 21% V.A.T. applies to both the Hammer Price
and the Buyers Premium. The Buyers Premium is
calculated for each lot as 51.25% of the Hammer Price
up to a value of 30,000, plus 45.2% of the Hammer
Price between 30,001 and 1,200,000, plus 35.52%
of any amount in excess of 1,200,000. The Buyer
must furnish Christies with all relevant information
concerning his V.A.T. position. The Buyer warrants
this information to be correct.
Changes in the V.A.T. status of a Lot may be
communicated by a sale room notice.
6. REGISTRATION OF BIDDERS
Prospective buyers who have not previously bid or
consigned with Christies should bring:
Individuals: government-issued photo identification
(such as a driving licence, national identity card, or
passport) and, if not shown on the ID document,
proof of current address, for example a utility bill or
bank statement.
Corporate clients: a photocopy of the company
register or if located in the Netherlands an original
excerpt of Chamber of Commerce not older than
4 weeks.
For other business structures such as trusts, offshore
companies or partnerships, please contact Christies
Credit Department at +31 (0)20 575 52 11 for advice
on the information you should supply.
A financial reference in the form of a recent bank
statement or a reference from your bank. Christies
can supply a form of wording for the bank reference
if necessary.
Persons registering to bid on behalf of someone who
has not previously bid or consigned with Christies
should bring identification documents not only for
themselves but also for the party on whose behalf
they are bidding, together with a signed letter of
authorisation from that party.
To allow sufficient time to process the information,
new clients are encouraged to register at least 48 hours
in advance of a sale.
Prospective buyers should register for a numbered
bidding paddle at least 30 minutes before the auction.
Clients who have not made a purchase from any
Christies office within the last two years and those
wishing to spend more than on previous occasions, will
be asked to supply a new bank reference. For assistance
with references, please contact Christies Credit
Department at +31 (0)20 575 52 11.
7. PAYMENT
The Buyer shall pay the Purchase Price to Christies
within seven days after the auction, failing which he
shall be in default. The Buyer shall owe interest on the
Purchase Price to Christies at a rate equal to the legal
interest plus two percentage points from the moment
he is in default. The Purchase Price includes V.A.T.
The Buyer shall pay the Purchase Price in full even if
a subsequent V.A.T. refund may be granted.
Christies does not accept payment from third parties.
This also applies to agents.

8. RELEASE OF LOTS
(a) Without prejudice to the provision of article
B.2.(a), the title to the objects belonging to the Lot
shall not pass to the Buyer until he has fully paid the
Purchase Price as well as any and all other moneys due
from the Buyer to Christies as a result of any other
purchase agreements. Until such time, Christies shall
have a lien (retentierecht) on the objects belonging
to the Lot.
(b) The Buyer must take away the Lot(s) purchased by
him at his expense within seven days of the auction,
failing which he shall be in default. The period of
seven days mentioned here may be deviated from in
the auction catalogue.
(c) The Buyer shall be liable for the costs of removal,
storage or other costs of any Lot which has not been
taken away by him within the period referred to
in paragraph (b) above. Christies shall have a lien
(retentierecht) on the Lot in respect of said costs.
(d) The Buyer may request Christies to pack a
purchased Lot or to cause the same to be packed. Such
packing shall be done entirely at the discretion of
Christies and at the expense and risk of the Buyer.
(e) Christies does not provide a packing, postal or
delivery service. Christies can suggest the names of
companies that provide these services if requested
to do so. However Christies does not accept
responsibility for any loss or damage which may occur
during packing, storage or transportation of the Lot(s).
(f) Collection of purchases
Christies shall be entitled to retain items sold
until all amounts due to Christies, or to Christies
International plc, or to any of its affiliates, subsidiaries
or parent companies worldwide, have been received
in full in good cleared funds or until the buyer has
performed any other outstanding obligations as we,
in our sole discretion, shall require, including, for
the avoidance of doubt, completing any anti-money
laundering or anti-terrorism financing checks we may
require to our satisfaction. In the event a buyer fails to
complete any anti-money laundering or anti-terrorism
financing checks to our satisfaction, Christies shall be
entitled to cancel the sale and to take any other actions
that are required or permitted under applicable law.
Subject to this, the buyer shall collect purchased lots
within seven calendar days from the date of the sale
unless otherwise agreed between us and the buyer.
9. RISK OF PURCHASED LOTS
The risk of loss or damage to purchased Lots shall
be borne by the Buyer from the moment when the
Buyers bid is accepted as the highest bid by Christies
at the auction. This means that Buyers have a legal
obligation to pay their purchases in full, even if the
Lots are subsequently lost or damaged.
10. DEFAULT OF THE BUYER
(a) If the Buyer is in default, Christies shall be
authorised to sell the Lot(s) purchased by the Buyer
without further notice, either by private or by public
sale. The Buyer shall continue to be liable for the part
of the Purchase Price remaining unpaid after such sale,
while the Buyer shall never be entitled to any surplus
proceeds which may be realised upon re-auctioning.
(b) If, as a result of the Buyers default, Christies are
sued by the Seller or by third parties or if any property
belonging to Christies or the sold Lot(s) is/are seized
by the Seller or by third parties, or if Christies suffer
damage or incur expenses in any other way as a result
of the Buyers default, Christies shall be entitled
to recover from the Buyer all damage suffered and
expenses incurred by Christies as a result thereof.
Christies shall moreover be authorised to disclose the
identity of the Buyer to the Seller or to the said third
parties if the Buyer is in default.

(c) If the Buyer is in default, Christies may reject at


any future auction any bids made by the Buyer.
11. LIABILITY
(a) Without prejudice to the provisions set forth
elsewhere in these Conditions of Sale, Christies are
liable for damage suffered by the Buyer only, if the
occurrence of the damage is the consequence of gross
negligence or intent of Christies or their employees or
representatives.
(b) In the cases referred to in paragraph (a) above the
extent of the liability of Christies for damage suffered
by the Buyer shall be limited to the amount of the
Buyers premium.
(c) The limitation of liability as contained in this
article may also be invoked by the employees and
representatives of Christies.
12. EXPIRATION
(a) The right of the Buyer to annul, rescind or
cancel the purchase agreement or to cause same to
be annulled or rescinded shall expire after one year
from the day on which the purchase agreement is
concluded. If the Buyer decides to exercise any of the
rights set forth above, he shall be obliged to deliver the
objects belonging to the purchased Lot to Christies
forthwith, in the same condition that they were in
when the Buyer took delivery of them, without
prejudice to the provisions of Article B.3.(e) in case
the Lot is claimed to be a Forgery.
(b) The annulment, nullification, rescission or
cancellation of the purchase agreement shall not affect
the Buyers obligation to pay the Buyers premium and
to reimburse the expenses incurred by Christies.
C. GENERAL PROVISIONS (APPLICABLE TO
BOTH BUYERS AND SELLERS)
1. Neither Christies nor their employees nor their
representatives are liable for any damage suffered by
the Seller or the Buyer, as the case may be, as a result
of default of the Buyer or the Seller, respectively.
2. Christies are authorised, without reason given, to
refuse any person admission to the auction premises
and the auction, and also to exclude any person from
making bids for a Lot.
3. Christies are authorised to combine several Lots,
to combine different objects from one and the same
Seller into one Lot, to refuse any bid, to continue the
bidding, to withdraw or to divide a Lot, and in the
event of a dispute about the bidding to put up the Lot
for sale once again immediately.
4. All notifications and communications to Christies
shall be made in writing.
5. The legal relationship between Christies and the
Buyer shall be governed by Netherlands law.
6. Any dispute between Christies and the Buyer
shall be adjudicated by the competent court of
Amsterdam, on the understanding that a Buyer who
is a natural person and who is not acting in pursuance
of a profession or a sale shall have the right, within
a period of 32 days after Christies have invoked this
clause against him in writing, to choose to have the
dispute adjudicated by the court that has jurisdiction
by law.
7. This text is a translation in the English language of
the Dutch Conditions of Sale. The Dutch text shall
be the authentic text in all cases. A copy of the Dutch
text is on public display at our sale premises and is
available on request.
8. The copyright in all images, illustrations and
written material, relating to a Lot is and shall remain
at all times the property of Christies and shall not be
used by the Buyer nor anyone else without the prior
written consent of Christies.

I request Christies to bid on the following lots up to the maximum
price I have indicated for each lot. I understand that if my bid is
successful, the purchase price payable shall be the aggregate of the
final bid and a VAT inclusive premium calculated at 30.25% of
the Hammer Price for each lot up to and including 30,000, plus
24.2% of the Hammer Price between 30,001 and 1,200,000,

these lots for the lowest possible price, taking into account
the reserve and other bids. Absentee bids submitted on no
reserve lots will, in the absence of a higher bid, be executed at
approximately 50% of the low pre-sale estimate or at the amount
of the bid if it is less than 50% of the low pre-sale estimate. If
identical absentee bids are received for the same lot, the written
bid received first at Christies will take precedence. Absentee bids
in another currency will be converted into Euros using the official
exchange rate on the day of receipt of the absentee bid. The results
of absentee bids will be mailed after the auction. An invoice will be
sent to you on the following business day after the sale.
