Diamond and ruby encrusted gold Rolex President wristwatch, est. £5,000-£7,000. Peter Wilson image

NANTWICH, UK - Success breeds success they say, so after one of the strongest sales of Northern art ever seen at Peter Wilson’s, saleroom in May, the pressure is on for the Nantwich, Cheshire, art and antiques auctioneers to produce a repeat performance. Entries of modern and contemporary paintings, all from private sellers, for the fine sale on Thursday, July 10 do not disappoint. Internet live bidding will be available through LiveAuctioneers.

Leading the sale is an oil on canvas by Fredrick Gore (1913-2009) which not only decorates the front cover of the sale catalog, but also recalls the balmy weather the county has been enjoying. “The Picnic” shows two young mothers and their children, one a babe in arms, sitting in a park setting, expressed in the vibrant colours of the season. The signed work measures 90 x 69.5cm.; 35.5 x 27.5in. and is estimated at £10,000-£12,000.

Sharing the same estimate is a graphic and powerful study titled “Soldier’s Head” by famed sculptor and printmaker Dame Elisabeth Frink (1930-1993), which is signed and dated ’65. The work recalls Frink’s fascination with the human form and perhaps foretells a series of threatening, monumental male heads which she produced from 1967 to 1970 while living in France. The watercolor measures 75 x 55cm.; 29.5 x 21.75in.

The other “household name” in British contemporary art in the sale is John Piper (1903-1992) represented by “Ruined Cottage” a work in mixed media, 37.5 x 56cm.; 14.75 x 22in., showing the dilapidated building in a country setting, which is estimated at £5,000-£7,000.

No sale of Northern art would be complete without pictures by the prolific Manchester artist Geoffrey Key (b. 1941). Pick of eight works this time is a powerful oil on board, 90 x 90cm.; 35.5 x 35.5in., of a seated nude in the artist’s signature surreal abstract style. It is estimated at £8,000-£10,000, while close behind is the equally surreal “Dead Elm,” 38.5 x 48.5cm.; 15.25 x 19.25in, signed and dated ’01, a landscape with the tree set against a mountainous backdrop. An oil on canvas, it is estimated at £5,000-£7,000.

A notable addition to the sale is a trio of paintings by William Gear (1915-1997), a Scottish artist who made a significant contribution to European painting through his association with the COBRA group in the immediate post-war years. Earliest of the three paintings is “Red Idol,” an oil on canvas, 121 x 80cm.; 47.75 x 31.5in., signed and dated ’59, which was exhibited widely, as shown by various labels on the reverse, notably in a 1963 Scottish Arts Council show of the artist’s work. It is estimated at £8,000-£10,000.

Gear’s abstract “Scottish Landscape,” in colored inks, signed and dated '63, 53.5 x 71cm.; 21 x 28in., is estimated at £6,000-£8,000, while his "Landscape Unit" is the latest work in the sale. The oil on canvas, signed and dated '85, and measuring 60 x 45cm.; 23.75 x 17.75in., is estimated at £3,000-£5,000.

The death last year of Manchester artist William “Bill” Turner continues to influence prices and the number of his paintings coming to market. This sale will offer 13, the most valuable of which is a street scene with the ubiquitous Stockport viaduct in the background. It is titled “The Organist,” reflecting the fact that, incongruously in the middle of the picture, is a man playing an electric organ to a small audience in the street outside a row on terraced cottages. The signed oil on board, 39 x 49cm.; 15.5 x 19.25in., is estimated at £5,000-£7,000.

Contenders for top honors elsewhere in the sale include a dazzling gold Rolex President Automatic Day-Date wristwatch, the dial and links of the President bracelet encrusted with diamonds and rubies, which is estimated at £5,000-£7,000; and an important “painting in the form of a bowl” by Lincolnshire ceramic artist Gordon Baldwin OBE (b. 1932-).

Baldwin’s career has spanned more than 50 years beginning with his studies at the Lincoln School of Art followed by the Central School of Art and Design between 1950 and 1953. Baldwin then went on to teach at Eton College. In 1992, in recognition of his influential career, he was awarded OBE and in 2000 he received an honorary doctorate from the Royal College of Art.

His work, which he describes as “a non search for beauty” producing “forms which have a certain awkward resonance,” can be found in the Victoria & Albert Museum and many other public collections worldwide. The piece in Peter Wilson’s sale challenges boundaries and breaks with the Bernard Leach tradition of pottery to work in a more sculptural abstract manner while still producing what remain as vessels.

Matisse prints to be offered at Dreweatts & Bloomsbury sale July 3

Le Destin, Plate XVI. Est. £5,000-7,000. Dreweatts & Bloomsbury Auctions image.

LONDON – Henri Matisse’s cut-outs have been receiving floods of visitors at the Tate Modern exhibition “Henri Matisse: The Cut-Outs,” which opened earlier this year. On Thursday, July 3, Dreweatts & Bloomsbury Auctions will offer collectors and investors the opportunity to take home some of the fascinating and rare cut-out works from the final chapter of Matisse’s diverse and influential career in a sale of Modern & Contemporary Prints.

LiveAuctioneers.com will provide Internet live bidding.

Despite ill health that left him immobile and unable to paint or draw freely, Matisse embarked on a new phase of his career that would prove to be his most influential and celebratory. Taking inspiration from the circus, he used a pair of scissors to cut lively shapes from brightly colored gouache-painted paper creating a series of paper cut-outs, papier decoupés, which were published in Jazz, 1947, a limited-edition book containing color pochoirs of the paper cut collages, accompanied by his written thoughts. Widely regarded as the most important artist’s book of the 20th century, it is scarce that individual plates from Jazz, such as these, should appear at auction.

A union between drawing and color, Matisse called this dynamic style “painting with scissors.”

Originally intended as illustrations for a poetry collection, Matisse instead replaced the verse with his own notes, which were originally written with a paintbrush in looping letters.

Henri Matisse: “You see as I am obliged to remain often in bed because of the state of my health, I have made a little garden all around me where I can walk … There are leaves, fruits and a bird.”

The combination of vivid colors with abstract and figurative subject matter evokes a glorious celebration of life against adversity. These highly sought after Jazz prints echo today as one of the most beautiful and groundbreaking series of 20th century art.

Don Presley to auction contents of Beverly Hills antique store, June 29

19th-century Meissen ewer depicting 'Air.' 26in high. Estimate $13,000-$15,000. Starting bid $10. No reserve. Don Presley Auctions image

SANTA ANA, Calif. – Don Presley Auction has been commissioned to liquidate the entire contents of an elite antique store in Beverly Hills. Everything will be auctioned on Sunday, June 29th at Presley’s Santa Ana gallery, with a 12 noon PST (3 p.m. Eastern) start time. There will be no minimums or reserves on the approximately 500 lots of store antiques, and Internet live bidding will be available worldwide through LiveAuctioneers.

“This will be a true no-reserve auction, with no cherry-picking ahead of time,” said Don Presley, who will preside over the event. “We will be selling the million-dollar, wall-to-wall inventory of one of Beverly Hills’ finest antique shops, and each item will sell to the highest bidder, regardless of the amount. If the highest bid is $10, then that’s what the item will sell for.”

Presley said the owner of the store, who is his personal friend, is shutting the doors to his business “so he can retire and enjoy life.” He stressed that the auction has not been precipitated by a bankruptcy or forced liquidation.

“It’s quite the opposite. This is simply a case where an owner who has had a wonderful time in the high-end antiques business has decided it’s time to call it a day. The store will not reopen. He is shutting the doors forever.”

Presley said the auction presents a very rare opportunity to bid on premier antiques and collectibles with the final price determined solely by the bidders, regardless of cost or loss to the consignor.

“Never in my 47 years in the auction world have I had the pleasure of selling this kind of inventory without reserve prices, nor have I even heard of an auction such as this one. For example, there’s a $10,000 KPM plaque in the auction inventory. The owner told me, “Don, if it only brings a dollar, sell it! If it doesn’t sell, don’t bring it back.”

Also included in this auction are beautiful estate pieces from some of Southern California’s most exclusive neighborhoods, including Newport Beach. The goods include: quality furniture, clocks, fine artwork, a monumental Baccarat chandelier, bronzes, sterling, Tiffany, enameled silver objects, KPM, Sevres, Galle, Lalique, Meissen, Limoges, Dresden, Daum Nancy, Amphora, a 19th-century Tiffany grandfather clock, porcelains, pottery, crystal, china, Asian items, jade, coins, jewelry and watches; and much more (Note: a few items from this auxiliary 150-lot grouping will have a reserve.)

Bid live via the Internet through LiveAuctioneers. For additional information on any item in the sale, call Don Presley Auction at 714-633-2430 or email This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it .

Antique trade card advertising Trick Dog mechanical bank. Est. $100-$200. Morphy Auctions image

DENVER, Pa. – Morphy’s Sunday, June 29, 2014 General Auction, with Internet live bidding through LiveAuctioneers, is a treasure trove of buying opportunities, especially for those who like ephemera.

By definition, “ephemera” are items that were expected to have only a brief shelf life – things made specifically for the consumer to use, enjoy, then discard. The term incorporate posters, calendars, handbills, pulp magazines, postcards, and anything else made of paper and deemed disposable after its purpose had been fulfilled.

Because paper goods weren’t meant to last, those items that have survived the test of time in fine condition are no longer regarded as throwaways. Far from it. They’re today’s collectibles and form a popular category in Morphy’s sales.

The June 29 General Auction taking place at Morphy’s contains 700+ lots of quality ephemera, plus a bonus section of more than 200 lots of stamps. The list of buying opportunities is long and diversified. The offering includes:

• Over 100 advertising pieces

• Over 50 pinup calendars and calendar tops by such artists as Alberto Vargas, Gil Elvgren and Earl MacPherson

• Over 100 great die-cuts

• Trade cards

• 19th-century atlases from Midwestern states

• Posters for St. Louis Air Races

• A massive selection of more than 50,000 Silver, Copper and Modern Age comic books

• 200+ “Tijuana bibles”

• Many early catalogs

• Over 300 1930s to 1950s science fiction pulp magazines, with titles including Weird Tales, Astounding Stories, Startling Stories, etc.

Featured items in the sale include Lot 65, a great-looking trade card that advertises the Trick Dog mechanical bank. Imprinted below a colorful image of the bank – whose design replicates a clown holding a hoop for his little dog to jump through – is the name of retailer “Rector & Wilhelmy Co., Omaha, Neb.” Cards of this type appeal not only to ephemera and antique advertising collectors, but also mechanical bank enthusiasts. In very good condition, it is expected to sell for $100-$200.

A fine grouping of Silver Age Marvel comic books entered as Lot 25 includes many desirable titles, including Daredevil, X-Men and Captain America. In overall very good condition, the group is estimated at $100-$200. Lot 405 consists of three excellent-condition examples of Amazing Spider-Man No. 300, also estimated at $100-$200.

Within the selection of atlases is Lot 149, “Colton’s Map of the United States and The Canadas.” A hand-colored, folding sectional map of North America, it includes railroads, canals and stagecoach roads. A very nice, early map, it is estimated at $300-$500.

Lot 733 is comprised of a large selection of American hunting, fishing, quail and duck stamps from the 1960s, 70s and 80s. They have a total face value of $785 and will be offered as a single lot with a $800-$1,200 estimate.

Morphy’s Sunday, June 29, 2014 General & Ephemera Auction will begin at 9 a.m. Eastern Time. For additional information on any item in the auction, call 717-335-3435 or email This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it .

Dreweatts & Bloomsbury art auction July 3 covers Op to Pop

Richard Hamilton, 'B is for Bee.' Estimate: £12,000-15,000. Dreweatts & Bloomsbury Auctions image.

LONDON – One of Bridget Riley’s earliest monochromatic Op art prints from the 1960s will share center stage with a unique work by Pop art’s Richard Hamilton in Dreweatts & Bloomsbury Auctions’ Modern and Contemporary Print sale on Thursday, July 3. LiveAuctioneers.com will provide Internet live bidding.

“These early works by Riley represent the start of dramatic developments in the artist’s oeuvre. To see them presented alongside some of her later color injected works is a retrospective joy of visually stimulating geometry,” said Alexander Hayter, head of Modern and Contemporary Art at Dreweatts & Bloomsbury Auctions.

Produced in 1962, the same year as her first solo exhibition at Musgraves Gallery One in London, Untitled (Circular Movement) (k.2) is the second black and white optical abstraction Riley produced. The rare signed and dated screenprint is typical of her black and white style, exploring the nexus between art and illusion. Numbered 17/35, the work is estimated at £30,000-50,000 ($51,000-85,000) [Lot 300].

Bridget Riley: "the eye can travel over the surface in a way parallel to the way it moves over nature. It should feel caressed and soothed, experience frictions and ruptures, glide and drift. Vision can be arrested, tripped up or pulled back in order to float free again … one moment there will be nothing to look at and the next second the canvas suddenly seems to refill, to be crowded with visual events.”

Other works by Riley include La Lune En Rodage (k.6), 1965, estimated at £5,000-7,000 ($8,500-11,900) [Lot 301], Untitled (Not in Schubert), ca. 1960, estimated at £3,000-5,000 ($5,100-8,500) [Lot 302] and Green Dominance (s.22), 1977, estimated at £2,500-3,500 ($4,250-5,950) [Lot 303].

British and American Pop Art

From Op Art to Pop Art, the Modern & Contemporary Print sale features a previously unseen and unique work by Richard Hamilton. B is for Bee was produced at the request of the artist Ian Breakwell for a special double issue of Exit Magazine, however Breakwell ran out of money before the issue could be published.

The present work was acquired from Breakwell in the early 1970s by the current owner, and has since remained in their private collection. Appearing at auction for the first time, it is estimated at £12,000-15,000 ($20,400-25,500) [Lot 186].

Representing the American Pop art movement are prints by Roy Lichtenstein, including Moonscape, 1965, estimated at £18,000-22,000 ($30,600-37,400) [Lot 251], Self-Portrait, 1966, by Andy Warhol, estimated at £10,000-15,000 ($17,000-25,500) [Lot 335] and a group of unique mixed media collages by Robert Rauschenberg [Lot 289, 290 and 291]. Topping the Modern Pop Art works is The Pink Bow from Jeff Koons’ Celebration Series. Signed in pencil the work, dated 2013, is estimated at £10,000-15,000 ($17,000-25,500) [Lot 244].

European Conceptual Movement

A collection of works by Marcel Broodthaers represents almost half of the Belgian artist’s graphic work. Following in the footsteps of Rene Magritte and preceding Joseph Kosuth, Broodthaers’ work is pivotal in the development of conceptual word-based art.

Museum – Museum, 1972, is exemplary of Broodthaer’s integral theme of repetition. The image of the ingots systematically covers the paper in a grid, with each ingot named a different name or noun, covering everything from Ingres to butter. The work is estimated at £12,000-15,000 [Lot 154]. Regarded as one of the leading artists of the European conceptual movement, Marcel Broodthaers’ reputation continues to grow.

The sale will be held on Thursday, July 3, at Dreweatts & Bloomsbury Auctions’ saleroom in London’s Mayfair.

Scarce World War II tin fire helmet with NFS transfer, 'Home Office Fire Inspector,' complete with chin strap and liner, helmet marked ZA II HBH 1938. Estimate: £150-200. Sworders Fine Art Auctioneers.

ESSEX COUNTY, UK – A unique collection of Fire Brigade memorabilia from across the globe is being sold by Sworders Fine Art Auctioneers on Tuesday, June 24.

LiveAuctioneers.com will provide Internet live bidding.

The remarkable collection was put together by George and Pamela Hallam, who were both long-serving fire officers. They started with the Nottinghamshire fire service; George Hallam serving for 25 years from 1959 and Pamela for 17 years, having joined in 1968. More than 200 artifacts from around the world are being sold, ranging from rare helmets, badges and uniforms, to fire marks, nozzles and medals, and date from the second half of the 19th century.

Iconic pieces such a San Francisco Fire Department helmet is starting with a price of £80 ($136), and bidding is expected to start at £150 ($255) on a scarce World War II NFS tin fire helmet. There are a number of medals being auctioned as well as fire badges put up on buildings in the 19th century and into the 20th century to indicate if a property was insured. Most of the medals are for long service, with a good selection of British examples, nearly all named. They include a rare gold medal awarded to a Superintendent Webber in 1924.

The Hallams traveled the world, adding to their collection while going from Australia to China, the Middle East, South America and the United States, as well as many other countries. A series of handwritten notes record their visits to these countries and the history of the items they brought back for their collection.

“This is an amazing collection as it is such a complete record of firefighting history, from so many places around the world. The couple clearly valued their days in the fire service and assembled this with such knowledge and passion,” said George Schooling, Sworder’s marketing executive.

Another highlight of the sale next week is a fire tender being sold by a local farmer who bought it for his own enjoyment. The Land Rover was just one of 47 built by the Rover factory and after being rolled off the production line was used in Ireland. The tender only has 11,600 miles on the odometer and qualifies for free road tax in the UK.

It’s expected to sell for between £15,000 and £20,000 ($25,500-$34,000). The Hallam Fire Brigade Collection Sale takes place at Sworder’s auction rooms in Stansted Mountfitchet on Tuesday, June 24.

Ewbank’s to sell unique Rudyard Kipling archive June 25-26

Rudyard Kipling with his father, John Lockwood Kipling. Ewbank's image.

SURREY, UK – A unique family collection of Rudyard Kipling letters, photographs and personal items, some of them belonging to the author’s troubled “forgotten sister,” is to be sold by Ewbank’s. The archive is expected to excite Kipling scholars around the world and will be offered on the second of the auctioneer’s two-day summer sale, which is on June 25-26.

LiveAuctioneers.com will provide Internet live bidding.

The collection of around 90 lots, much of it previously unseen, was inherited by Helen MacDonald, great niece of Kipling's mother Alice MacDonald, about whom a future Viceroy of India would say "Dullness and Mrs. Kipling cannot exist in the same room.”

Alice married Kipling's father, John Lockwood Kipling, and moved to India in 1865. Her three sisters married respectively the artists Edward Burne-Jones and Edward Poynter and Alfred Baldwin, father of Prime Minister Stanley Baldwin. From Helen MacDonald, Rudyard Kipling's first cousin once removed, the archive passed by gift to the present consignor.

Most poignant is an autograph letter to Kipling’s brother-in-law John Fleming about Kipling’s sister, Alice “Trix” – herself a published novelist, being certified insane.

Kipling and Trix were both born in India but his days of “strong light and darkness” in Bombay ended when, following the custom in British India, at the age of 5, he and his 3-year-old sister were sent to England. They lived unhappily with a foster couple in Southsea, who boarded children of British nationals serving in India.

Written on paper from “Hotel du Parc & sa dependance Hotel Ibrahim Pacha” in the French Pyrenees, on March 13 1911, Kipling notes that the objection to Trix being certified is sentimental, “but none the less jars on me.”

“One must remember that the attack has now lasted barely three months and it has been taken in hand practically from the first, so one can begin to hope that another few weeks may see the turn in the malady. At any rate the fact that she regards the nurse as she does is proof, at least, that she is in sympathetic hands. What her demeanour may be to her family and surroundings is a matter that may depend on a hundred causes to which, in a short visit, one has no clue. It is to be remembered that in the overwhelming number of mental cases they turn for a while against those who are nearest to them. Our weather is rather cold with a falsely blue sky.”

The letter is estimated at £300-500, as is Trix’s folding paper fan, which she used like an autograph album. It dates from 1891-1895 and is signed in ink by Rudyard Kipling, Stanley Baldwin, Edward Burne-Jones and his wife Georgiana and Edward Poynter.

A hint of the darker side of Trix’s mind is offered by her black-painted gilt decorated box, decorated by her father, John Lockwood Kipling, containing her fortune-telling paraphernalia comprising her crystal ball and a copy of Cheiro’s Palmistry For All, containing “New information on the study of the hand never before published,” inscribed to Alice Fleming (her married name) from “Linda”. It is estimated at £200-300. It has been suggested that Trix’s interest in fortune telling may have led in part to her unsettled mind.

According to Mary Hamer, author of Kipling & Trix, published in 2012, Trix experimented with “automatic writing,” an activity associated with spiritualism. She writes: “Trix would sit at her desk, pencil in hand, notebook at the ready, and wait. Her hand, she reported to friends, would start moving of its own volition, scribbling over the page.”

She subsequently sent copies of the messages back to the Society for Psychical Research in London, where they were taken extremely seriously. Her “spirit-writings” were collected as part of a group experiment, known as the “cross-correspondences.” Under the pseudonym of ‘Mrs. Holland’ she became a celebrated spiritualist medium.

“Rudyard warned his sister to keep clear of spirit writing, well aware that it had been known to cause breakdowns. But it was too important to her. She persisted. And duly broke down, in 1898 and again for a long period starting in 1911, when her mother died,” Mary Hamer writes.

Living later in Edinburgh, she would make visits to the zoo there, making her way from cage to cage, talking to the animals in the Hindustani language she learned as a young child. Her notebook filled with the words and phrases she used is estimated at £100-200.

Trix’s heart-shaped silver brooch inlaid with green and clear paste stones, passed down to her by her mother, is accompanied by a note in Trix’s hand giving it to the Macdonald sisters It is estimated at £30-50.

Other, more valuable, jewelry in the archive may have either belonged to Trix or was bequeathed to her, but this cannot be confirmed. Diamond rings of three and five stones are estimated respectively at £1,000-1,500 and £800-1,200, while a Victorian diamond flower brooch has retained its original retailer’s box, which is marked Carter’s of Bombay and Poona. This was almost certainly owned originally by Trix’s mother and is estimated at £600-800.

John Lockwood Kipling was himself an accomplished artist, illustrating many of his son Rudyard’s books. The archive includes a panel hand-painted by Lockwood Kipling depicting a vase of flowers and birds among scrolling foliage. It is referred to on Page 383 of Trix, Kipling's Forgotten Sister by Lorna Lee, the caption reading: “The decorative panel (varnished paper) by Lockwood which Trix used as a firescreen. Trix always wanted this and it was collected from “The Gables” at Tisbury by Jack Fleming (Trix's husband ) after Lockwood's death.” It must subsequently have passed to Helen MacDonald when Trix died and is estimated at £100-200.

Two pen and ink drawings by Lockwood Kipling titled respectively The Ruby Prince showing a man surrounded by cobras, signed with initials, the other The Snake Woman, each measuring 7 inches by 4 1/2 inches, are together estimated at £50-100.

A hand-decorated and written menu in pen and wash celebrating Rudyard Kipling’s 25th birthday on Dec. 30 1890 depicts him and other figures and is signed with his father’s initials JLK, while the reverse bears Rudyard Kipling’s own ink design. It measures 9 inches by 5 1/2 inches and is estimated at £100-150.

An autograph letter from Kipling to Trix dated Dec. 15, 1935 is on four sides of headed paper from Bateman’s in Burwash, Sussex, the Jacobean house where Kipling and his wife, Carrie, lived from 1902, now belonging to the National Trust. Kipling used the house and its setting for many of his stories in Puck of Pook's Hill (1906) and the sequel Rewards and Fairies (1910).

Addressed: “Ho! daughter of my mother,” the letter reads:

“Im busy clearing up odds and ends as behoves one whose 70th birthday is upon him! I accept it but I can only say that I don’t feel in the least like it, nor do I like it in the least."

There are references to his first cousin, Stanley Baldwin, and the League of Nations and to having recently met Neville Chamberlain: "he seemed quite calm which I confess I am not in respect of Italian possibilities. Its a vindictive people with long memory." The letter and its envelope are estimated at £100-150.

In a report on an exhibition at The Elms, Rottingdean, Kipling’s seaside home near Brighton from 1897-1902, The Kipling Society’s Journal of 1951 refers to “the intriguing – and somewhat eerie Max Desmarets” whose Valentine written by Kipling on Feb. 14, 1884 was exhibited. The journal notes the Valentine was written while Kipling was in India in tiny handwriting on a small folded gilt-edged card illustrated by him in red ink and opening with the couplet: “How shall a ghost from Père la Chaise Greeting send to a vanquished love?” “... but who Max Desmarets was and how he drifted into R.K.’s ken – or imagination – no one knows. This exhibit also had previously never been published or shown.”

The sale includes what is believed to be the actual valentine, written and illustrated by Kipling on two pieces of gilt-edged card and is almost certainly that referred to in the exhibition. It is estimated at £200-300. Interestingly, an edition of the Allahabad Pioneer (for which Kipling was later to work) dated Jan. 2 1884, states that Kipling took the part of M. Desmarets in an amateur performance of Plot and Panion at the Railway Theatre in Lahore. This would have been during the time he worked on the Lahore newspaper, the Civil and Military Gazette, after he returned to India in 1882.

In 1883, Kipling visited Shimla (then known as Simla), a well-known hill station and the summer capital of British India. Kipling returned there for his annual leave each year from 1885 to 1888, and the town figured prominently in many of the stories he wrote for the Gazette.

A handwritten poem signed and dated “Rudyard Kipling Simla 1885, June 2nd 1885” is estimated at £200-300.

The archive contains many photographs, some previously unseen, including two from the Simla studio of Bourne & Shepherd, Simla, Calcutta and Bombay.

A head-and-shoulders cabinet photograph is autographed and inscribed “Yours very sincerely Rudyard Kipling,”' inscribed verso “A kind of scrubbed boy – a lawyer's clerk' (Merchant of Venice). The photograph is estimated at £200-300, while a three-quarter length cabinet photograph from the same studio is estimated at £100-150.

A cabinet photograph depicting Kipling and his mother is dated “Dec 13. 90,” and is dedicated to his sister: “Trix from Mother and Ruddy.” By Elliott and Fry Photographers, 55 Baker Street, London, it is estimated at £200-300, while another depicting Kipling and his father, John Lockwood Kipling, by Bourne & Shepherd, is estimated at £100-150.

Two silver gelatin photographs of Kipling when he was young, one with shoulder-length hair and wearing a sailor's uniform, the other with short hair wearing a jacket and bow tie are together estimated at £80-120, while two albums and numerous loose photographs relating to the Kipling and MacDonald families, many of which can be found throughout the book Trix: Kipling’s Forgotten Sister are estimated at £100-200.

A 19th century photographic family tree featuring 22 portraits of the Kipling, Macdonald, Burne-Jones and Poynter families is also estimated at £100-200, as is a 19th century Kipling family leather and brass mounted family photograph album including, Rudyard Kipling, Margaret Burne-Jones, Julius Frederick MacDonald, Alice Baldwin and Agnes Poynter.

The archive also contains what is believed to be the earliest photographic portrait of Kipling’s first cousin, Prime Minister Stanley Baldwin, aged about 6. It is estimated at £100-200.

Dreweatts & Bloomsbury to sell works by WWI artist June 27, July 3

C.R.W. Nevinson (1889-1946), 'The Road from Arras to Bapaume,' lithograph, 1918. Dreweatts & Bloomsbury Auctions image.

LONDON – An early painting from C.R.W. Nevinson’s rare series of aerial battles, Bridge of the Thames, will appear at auction for the first time on Friday, June 27. A print of The Road from Arras to Bapaume, purchased by Capt. Samuel Davenport Charles (1886-1962) in 1919 as an evocative memento of his service in Arras, France, will also be offered alongside the war hero’s medals in a sale of modern and contemporary prints at Dreweatts & Bloomsbury Auctions on Thursday, July 3. LiveAuctioneers.com will provide Internet live bidding.

Capt. Samuel Davenport Charles of the Lincolnshire Yeomanry was stationed at Arras during World War I. Serving with distinction, he was awarded the Military Cross for his exemplary gallantry on the Western Front, and was later awarded the Imperial Service Order for his work in civilian life as Principal of the Ministry of Town and Country Planning.

The London Gazette on Sept. 16, 1918 read: “Captain Samuel Davenport Charles, Yeo(manry). For conspicuous gallantry and devotion to duty. Throughout six days’ operations this officer did splendid work until badly wounded. Whilst hold (sic) a railway line he kept the enemy at bay the whole day, his offensive patrolling being of great value, and carried out with conspicuous judgment. On the last day he beat off four determined attacks, and when wounded in the arm and side he remained on duty till all was quiet.”

In 1919, soon after being demobilized from the British Army, Capt. Samuel Davenport Charles happened upon this print of The Road from Arras to Bapaume by the Great War artist C.R.W. Nevinson at the Leicester Gallery in London where Nevinson’s held his first solo exhibition.

With Arras and his time on the Western Front fresh in his memory, the captain purchased this haunting image of the area where he served, as a meaningful pictorial memento of not only his service, but also as a reminder of his remarkable bravery and survival at the Western Front, where so many sadly perished.

This poignant lithograph print is signed in pencil and is estimated to achieve £40,000-£60,000 [Lot 16]. The group of six medals awarded to Capt. Samuel Davenport Charles with be offered in a separate lot estimated at £1,500-£2,000 [Lot 15].

Much is known of Nevinson’s work as an official war artist from 1915-18, a large part of which continues to be housed at the Imperial War Museum in London. At the time, images like The Road from Arras to Bapaume were translated into lithography for an immediate wider audience, and their fame and popularity was sealed. Less is known about the artist’s work that focus on battles away from the trenches, those in the air and at sea.

One such example is an oil on canvas, Bridge over the Thames, circa 1920, which will be appearing at auction for the first time in a sale at Dreweatts & Bloomsbury Auctions Modern & Contemporary Art sale on Friday, June 27.

An RAF biplane is engaged in an aerial battle with a German Fokker bomber over the skies of London. Particular attention is paid to the cloud formations the aircrafts are weaving through, but through the clearing one can clearly see the River Thames winding its way into the distance.

Nevinson is known to have continued painting these aerial battles well into the 1920s, of which the current work is probably an example. It was acquired directly from the artist by Mary Smith, the grandmother of the current owner. The painting is estimated to achieve £40,000-£60,000 [Lot 11].

The Modern & Contemporary Art sale will be held on Friday, June 27, followed by Modern & Contemporary Prints sale on Thursday, July 3.

Auction Gallery of the Palm Beaches to host June 23 Summer Estates Auction

Yaacov Agam (Israeli, born 1928), ‘Paris Memory,’ verso signed, titled and inscribed ‘1969-1982,’ acrylic on aluminum corrugated panel, 21 inches x 17 3/4 inches. Estimate: $40,000-$60,000. Auction Gallery of the Palm Beaches Inc. image.

W. PALM BEACH, Fla. – Auction Gallery of the Palm Beaches Inc. will conduct an Important Summer Estates Auction of Fine Art and Antiques on Monday, June 23. The auction features the property of Jacqueline Goldman of Palm Beach and Paris, France. Goldman, who is a well-known local philanthropist, is downsizing her Palm Beach home. Goldman, along with her brother, Nicolas Landau, were the consignors of a one-owner auction at Sotheby’s in Paris in April 2013. The auction will have 300 lots of French antiques, fine art, Chinese porcelains, a collection of 17th-19th century silver beakers, jades, and Oriental antiques with additional consignments from South Florida and the Palm Beaches.

LiveAuctioneers.com will facilitate Internet live bidding. The auction will begin at 6 p.m. Eastern.

The auction is certainly an eclectic collection from a lady dignitary who was a world traveler and collected over a lifetime. The objects range from 17th century bronzes and Bibles to contemporary art from Yaacov Agam. Fine French furniture is featured with Lot 187; with a late 18th century carved and painted giltwood console desserte with provenance from Mallett, London and New York, with an estimate of $15,000-$20,000. Lots 24 to 26 are Renaissance period bronzes of draped figures, each no more than 7 inches, that are rare and unusual. Also, there are two early Bibles that have not seen the light of day in many years. Both Lot 232, a copy of a 1715 Bible by John Baskett, and Lot 233, an Imperial-size Bible by John Field dated 1660 are heavily illustrated with full-sheet engravings that are rare and desirable. They are estimated at $2,500-$3,000 and $5,000-$7,000 respectively.

In contrast to the antiques is Lot 238 an original acrylic on corrugated aluminum by Israeli artist Yaacov Agam. The work titled Paris Memory was painted by the artist over the years from 1969-1982 and reflects the variety and eclecticism in the collection. The works by Agam are well known for their abstract and kinetic qualities with optical illusions. The painting is estimated at $40,000-$60,000. Goldman and the artist are friends, and this work was specially created for the consignor. Agam has important public work projects all over the world and recently celebrated his 86th birthday.

Additionally, the auction will feature a fresh selection of American, European and Latin American fine art to include Lot 255 a watercolor by internationally known local artist Stephen Scott Young (b. 1958). The painting is a study portrait of a young black man, Quenton, a subject he has painted before. Young is considered as one of the premier watercolorists of our time. His sensitive and detailed brushwork is compared to be in the ranks with Homer and Whistler’s work. The watercolor is estimated at $10,000-$15,000. Lot 54 is a good American painting of cows watering titled The Pond, Morning by Henry Singlewood Bisbing (1849-1933). Bisbing was a student of master Belgian animal painter JHL de Haas (1832-1908) in Brussels, who called Bisbing a great animal painter. The painting is in estate found condition and will have an estimate of $3,000-$4,000. Additional art by Edmund Adler, Victor Henry Lesur, Ernest Lawson, Rufino Tamayo, Alexander Calder, Ruth Schloss and Angelo Asti will be offered.

At last month’s auction held on May 12 and 13, a fine quality white type-A jade mountain, 4 inches high, with provenance from Spink & Co., London, soared past its estimate of $15,000-$18,000 to sell to an internet bidder for $145,000. In contrast, Lot 261 is a monumental work in green jade of nine realistic dragons chasing the flaming pearl above the clouds. While the piece is certainly contemporary and not the fine type-A jade serious collectors are attracted to, this piece is carved from one solid piece and is certainly a showstopper. This is the largest piece of jade ever offered for sale by the gallery and has an estimate of $30,000-$40,000.

Auction Gallery of the Palm Beaches Inc. is celebrating their 11th year in business with this sale and has gained an outstanding reputation for offering good and fine estate art and antique property at auction. The gallery’s first auction was held on LiveAuctioneers in June 2003 and at the end of last year the gallery passed their 100th auction on-line.

Commenting on the auction business, gallery president Brian Kogan stated, “The on-line auction business has revolutionized the bidder participation at auction and with this unprecedented technology has been unprecedented returns for the consignors and the gallery. The auctions are now seen with live audio/video feed for the bidders console, so they feel the action in the room, and this is has been a real boon for bidding.”

Stephenson’s to auction dolls, toys and Lionel trains, June 20

Lionel pre-war train set. Stephenson's Auction image SOUTHAMPTON, Pa. – Dolls, toys and trains representing a timeline of more than 130 years will cross the auction block on Friday, June 20th at Stephenson’s in suburban Philadelphia. The 400-lot offering spans a legacy of toy making that begins with a cast-iron African-American-themed “Jolly” bank made in 1883 and runs all the way through the boomer era, represented by lithographed-tin toys of the 1950s-’60s, Lionel trains, and dolls. Internet live bidding will be available through LiveAuctioneers.

“The auction includes a mixed selection with approximately half of the lots being dolls and the other fifty percent divided almost evenly between trains and toys of various types,” said Cindy Stephenson, owner of Stephenson’s Auctioneers & Appraisers.

Impressed with a patent date of March 2, 1883, the Shepard Hardware “Jolly” bank is estimated at $400-$800. It is the only mechanical bank in the sale, but is accompanied by several still banks and circa-1960 Book of Knowledge banks that faithfully replicate antique productions.

A wide variety of toys will be offered, including 1960s GI Joes – most of them boxed and many with vehicles; pressed-steel trucks by Tonka and Nylint; and Matchbox by Lesney die-cast toy cars. Tin toys are led by colorful carnival rides: a roller coaster and Ferris wheel by Chein, and a Wolverine carousel with horses, riders and airplanes. A varied array of miniature lead figures – some manufactured by the prestigious Britains company of England – features both military and civilian examples. The figures will be sold in group lots.

A box containing 12 sets of magic lantern slides – each set comprised of 12 slides – is stamped “Germany” and almost certainly dates back to the 1930s. “We believe each of the sets is the same, so the box was probably shipped to a retailer or distributor,” said Stephenson. One of the 12 sets was carefully unwrapped and revealed within its selection a slide depicting an early, long-snouted Mickey Mouse in an encounter with a bully.

Many of the trains in the sale are by Lionel, with both pre- and postwar types included. Among the top Lionel railway entries is a No. 5340 Hudson locomotive with 700T tender, est. $300-$500. A prewar No. 225E locomotive with 2235W tender, plus cars and caboose; and a No. 2360 postwar Pennsylvania electric locomotive are individually estimated at $200-$400. Always popular with collectors, train station and track accessories will be up for bid, as well.

There will be dolls to suit every taste and pocketbook. The list includes miniature German all-bisque dolls, a 14-inch Ideal composition Shirley Temple with original clothing, and a 21-inch composition Wendy-face doll designed in the 1940s by Madame Alexander. Several bisque-head dolls are entered in the sale – among them, one by Kestner and another by Simon & Halbig Heinrich Handwerck.

For the many collectors of early 1950s Vogue Ginny dolls, Stephenson’s will offer several desirable examples dressed in their original outfits, including some in novelty attire, such as a skating outfit.

A few older Barbies and dolls depicting Ken, Midge and other Barbie friends will cross the auction block, as well, together with original tagged clothing and a few Barbie trunks. Additionally, the doll portion of the sale will include accessories and RenWal doll house furniture.

A nice addition to the auction session is an assortment of vintage Christmas decorations. Many are mid-century productions made of shiny glass.

Stephenson’s Friday, June 20 Dolls, Toys & Trains Auction will commence at 10 a.m. Eastern Time at the company’s gallery located at 1005 Industrial Blvd., Southampton, PA 18966. Inspection is on Thursday, June 19 from 3-6 p.m., and on auction day from 9-10 a.m. A general antiques session will follow at 4 p.m.

Important folk art carved patriotic cane of exceptional quality attributed to Zachariah S. Robinson (Virginia/Illinois, 1806-1873). Jeffrey S. Evans & Associates.

MT. CRAWFORD, Va. – Jeffrey S. Evans & Associates will auction Americana and fine antiques in a sale slated for Saturday, June 21. Highlights of the auction include important material descended in early Virginia families including the Harris family of Buck Island Farm, Albemarle Co., material from a Rockingham County, Va., collection assembled in the 1970s, and additional estate property and private collections from Virginia, Kentucky, Pennsylvania, Massachusetts, Maryland, and New York.

LiveAuctioneers.com will provide Internet live bidding.

Several fine chairs lead the sale, including examples from Petersburg and Fredericksburg, both interpreting Chippendale style in Virginia, circa 1745-1760. The corner chair has a history in an old Richmond family; the side chair is attributed to the shop of Robert Walker (circa 1710-1777), of Fredericksburg. A rare Richmond Windsor writing-arm chair attributed to the shop of Andrew and Robert McKim (circa 1795-1805), is also on the block.

A group of seven fine school maps, executed by Mary and Elizabeth Craig, while young students at the Domestic Academy of Washington County, Ky., are among a large offering of folk art in this auction. The maps remind us of the history of female education in the early 19th century, as well as the history of a relatively new area of the United States in its nascent stage. The artistry is naïve and the maps present the territory and history in a delightful fashion. The maps have descended in the family of the original makers.

Additionally, the sale includes a 35-year Augusta County, Va., collection of country Americana purchased locally and at major antiques shows; rare 18th and 19th century Virginia and other Southern furniture; decorative arts and silver; American formal and country furniture; Oriental carpets; good Virginia, West Virginia and Pennsylvania folk pottery; American folk art; fine art and statuary; samplers and quilts; country accessories including collections of painted boxes, baskets and ironware; 18th and 19th century primitive lighting; decorative accessories; English and American silver; early ceramics including White House porcelains; antique reference volumes and more.

Ewbank’s to sell art collection of renowned curator June 27

Sir Terry Frost R.A., British (1915-2003), untitled, unfinished oil and collage. Estimate: £10,000-20,000. Ewbank’s image.

SURREY, UK – On June 27, Ewbank’s, Surrey’s premier auctioneer of fine art and antiques, will sell the Michael Compton Collection of postwar and contemporary art, a group of 28 works by luminaries Roy Lichtenstein, Marcel Broodthaers, Terry Frost, Henry Moore, Richard Long, Victor Newsome, Keith Milow, Billy Al Bengston, Ian Stephenson, Sol LeWitt and Joe Tilson, most of them gifted in thanks by the artists or their families whose careers were enhanced by the exhibitions Compton created. The collection is expected to raise around £200,000 ($336,000).

LiveAuctioneers.com will provide Internet live bidding.

Tate Director Sir Nicholas Serota described Compton as “arguably the first curator working in England to command international respect for his practice as a maker of exhibitions, collaborator with artists and contributor to the discourse of contemporary art.”

A small Lichtenstein bronze, Yellow Brushstroke is an exception. Number 11 of 19 from an initial lifetime casting, it was presented to Compton by the Frederick R. Weisman Art Foundation at an awards event held at the Los Angeles Museum of Contemporary Art on May 23 1991. The presentation was in recognition of his work as curator of the 1989 Marcel Broodthaers exhibition at the Walker Art Center in Minneapolis. It is estimated at £40,000-60,000.

Broodthaers died in 1976 and in 1980, while at Tate Gallery, Compton curated the first retrospective of the Belgian artist’s work. He went on to curate the 1989 exhibition in Minneapolis, which also travelled to the Museum of Contemporary Art in Los Angeles and the Carnegie Museum of Art in Pittsburgh.

Frederick R.Weisman (1912-1994) was an entrepreneur, philanthropist, and art collector, who held an uncompromising belief in the cultural value of art and an understanding of the importance of both the individual artist and the creative process.

Lichtenstein developed his Brushstrokes paintings as sculptural representations in the 1980s and ’90s, depicting the gestural expressions of the brushstroke itself. In his own words, Lichtenstein said the brushstroke “is just an idea to start with, and painting it makes it more concrete, but when you do it in bronze sculpture, it becomes real and has weight and is absurd, contradictory and funny.”

Marcel Broodthaers (1924-1976) spent 20 years in poverty as a struggling poet before turning to art and began to make objects in 1963. One the surreal images linked to him most often is Poêle De Moules, mussel shells in a frying pan, a witty nod to his homeland’s national dish. The piece is one of 10 lots in the sale gifted to Compton by the artist’s widow, Maria, at the time he was working with her on a proposed catalogue-raisonné of her husband’s work. This involved regular visits to Brussels in the 1980s and ’90s to do research.

Broodthaers was a writer, poet, filmmaker, photographer, journalist and artist, who famously remarked he would rather have put off the choice of profession until his death. Closely associated with the Belgian Groupe Surréaliste-revolutionnaire, he made use of found objects and collage, incorporating written language in his art, using whatever was at hand for raw materials, most notably the shells of eggs and mussels. Poêle De Moules is estimated at £40,000-60,000.

Un Chateaubriand bien saignant pour deux (A rare Chateaubriand for two) is unsigned but shares the same provenance as the mussels. It is stenciled on the unprimed reverse of the canvas. It is estimated at £30,000-50,000, while Palette, done in colored pencils on a prepared canvas board in 1973-4 is estimated at £15,000-25,000.

A photographer’s light box with photographs and slides inscribed "Avion" and "Avis" is estimated at £10,000-20,000.

Language as a symbol that conveys meaning is a central theme in Broodthaers’ texts, objects, installations, films, photographs, slide projections and prints. A work comprising three magic slate boards mounted on grey card is estimated at £5,000-10,000 and a group of 12 children's ABC play bricks stenciled in black in a Dr. Pusscat on the Mouse box is estimated at £4,000-6,000, as is a pair of green glass wine bottles with printed labels "Pluie" and "Mer du Nord" ("Rain" and "Sea of the North").

More valuable of two untitled abstracts by Sir Terry Frost (1915-2003) is an unfinished oil and collage on hardboard done in 1954-56 and estimated at £10,000-20,000. The work was begun when Frost was a Gregory Fellow at Leeds University and given to Compton who at the time was assistant to the director at the city’s art gallery.

Frost told Compton and his wife, Susan, that the motifs were inspired by a visit to Malham Tarn in the Yorkshire Dales. Frost had already produced a smaller sketch, also painted on hardboard, which Mr. and Mrs. Compton owned, so he presented them with this version saying, “I don't know how to finish this so I'd like you to have it.” The work was probably painted in the studio provided by the university in Moor Road, Leeds and is similar to a group of works, which Frost related to his experience of the Dales landscape.

An abstract in watercolor on paper in black, brown and white was painted in 1957 after Frost's Gregory Fellowship ended and while he was teaching at Leeds College of Art. It is estimated at £2,000-4,000. Similar detail can be found in a work in the Tate Collection Khaki and Lemon, 1956.

Sir Henry Moore (1898-1986) gifted two inscribed lithographs to Compton in thanks for organizing the 1977 Henry Moore Drawings exhibition at the Tate Gallery curated by Alan Wilkinson of the Ontario Art Gallery. They show a reclining figure and a mother and child respectively and each is inscribed “For Michael Compton from Henry Moore.” Each is estimated at £600-1,000, as is a signed wine bottle given to Compton during the dinner for Henry Moore at the Cafe Royale, which followed the opening of the exhibition. With it is a second bottle from the opening of a Henry Moore exhibition in 1989 at the Fondation Pierre Gianadda in Martingny, Switzerland, where a local vintage was named for the artist and served at the gallery.

Michael Compton was born in Minehead, Somerset, while his parents were on leave from India, where he spent his early childhood. Educated in England and South Africa, he studied naval architecture before turning to art history, graduating from the Courtauld Institute in 1952.

From 1953 Compton worked in public museums, beginning at Leeds Art Gallery (1953-57) where he cataloged the watercolor collection at Temple Newsam House, followed by the Walker Art Gallery in Liverpool, where he was keeper of foreign art. In 1960, he was appointed director of the Ferens Art Gallery in Hull for which he acquired the first David Hockney to enter a museum. He joined the Tate Gallery as assistant keeper of the modern collection in 1965 and worked there until his retirement in 1987.

Early in 1968, a Churchill Traveling Fellowship gave him three months in the U.S. to explore contemporary American art, instigating contemporary exhibitions, beginning with the Roy Lichtenstein show of 1968. In 1971, he curated the Andy Warhol and Robert Morris exhibitions, the former a great success, the latter a disaster, although it was restaged in 2009 to great acclaim.

In the 1970s, Compton planned an extension to the Tate Gallery (today Tate Britain) to provide special space for exhibitions, which opened in 1979. Additionally, he was invited to join British Council and Arts Council committees and became involved with exhibitions at the Hayward Gallery in London and British Council exhibitions overseas. He also represented Britain on the International Committee of Modern Art Museums.

By the time he retired in 1987 he was the most “international” curator in London, connecting his up-to-date knowledge of British art to first-hand experience of contemporary art in Europe and the United States. In recognition of this he was created C.B.E. He died last year, leaving a widow, who lives in Surrey, and two daughters.
