Pridham's is pleased to offer the important and extensive art collection of Joseph Liverant (1894-1981). This collection will include original works, lithographic posters and related material (books) by Marc Chagall (1887-1985). Most examples are signed and / or signed and dedicated to Mr. Liverant, Also included in this collection are original works by Pablo Picasso, James Ensor, Raymond Moretti and Raoul Dufy. Mr. Liverant, an Ex-Pat of Russian Jewish origin, fled Germany to take residence in Canada during the Second World War. Marc Chagall, an ex-Pat of Russian Jewish origin, was fleeing France and the Holocaust to take refuge in New York City during the war years. In the years following his return to France, Chagall took up residence at his famed home in St-Paul-de-Vence while Liverant purchased a residence in Beaulieu-sur-Mer. Social circles, shared interests, a common Jewish background including speaking Yiddish along with a proximity in age, transpired into a long, congenial relationship. This warm relationship is evident in the numerous dedications made on the lithographs and books that are in this collection. After Liverant's death, the collection was passed onto his wife Marguerite, and subsequently to his stepson, Mr. Félix Quinet. Mr. Quinet took great pride in his mother and stepfather's collection, donating many pieces to the National Gallery of Canada. Upon Mr. Quinet's recent passing, the family has decided to divest the collection through public auction. To whom it may concern: a note from the Family. The Quinet Family is confident that the original signed artwork supplied to Pridham's Auction House Inc., is authentic. Our grand-parents, Joseph and Marguerite Liverant, collected art for a considerable period of time. As residents of the South of France, these pieces were stored and displayed in their private residences. The collection of art was moved to Canada in the mid 1980's, after their deaths. These pieces have remained in the sole possession of our family, for decades. Our father, Félix Quinet, had a decades-long relationship with the National Gallery of Canada. He donated hundreds of Chagall lithographs, beginning in 1986. **Pridham's is pleased to inform prospective buyers of any of the Chagall material in Saturday's sale that we are in possession of a large selection of family documents demonstrating continuity and relevance in terms of the Chagall collection. These documents date to the time when the family lived in Beaulieu-sur-Mer, up to and including correspondence with the National Gallery of Canada and subsequent exhibitions. It should be noted that the Quinet Family have made the largest donation of Chagall artwork to the National Gallery of Canada in its HISTORY, with over 600 authentic works, including the famed Daphnis and Chloé (Details can be found on Google). Pridham's would be pleased to share this information with prospective buyers on an individual basis, please email Pridham's for more information. Other inclusions: a selection of Persian rugs including one designed by Vasily Kandinsky, a few more Chagall posters, an impressive Venetian glass chandelier, a pair of Art Deco ceramic nautical figures by Edouard Cazaux (1889-1974, French), several pieces of fine Venetian glass and Austrian stemware (J&L Lobmeyr Hoffman, 1917) from the Lilian M. Stewart Foundation (Montreal), and several monumental, commissioned pieces of fine art work by well known listed Canadian artists from the Canderel-Ottawa Collection.
