A hand carved, ceremonial hardwood mask from the Ivory Coast. Painstakingly hollowed out to quite a smooth interior finish. The mask is rather small leading me to believe that this was made for a woman. Quite a lot of detail with a protruding, horned high-piece. Various holes in the circumference allow it to be tied to various sized people. Definitely an antique. Early last century or previous. Excellent condition with one minor repair. No signature visible.

Fille avec au Parapluie Noir sur la Pont Neuf, Paris. Girl with black umbrella on the Pont Neuf Bridge, Paris. Oil on canvas by François Gall. An elegant woman on a bridge over the river Seine. The painting is difficult to shoot. It’s more subdued and a bit darker than most. Gall was obviously trying to capture the cloudy, rainy day, hence the umbrella and the shadows on her face. The canvas is not in perfect shape – some crazing and slightly loose on the stretcher. Thin paint, tiny canvas buckle upper centre, a bit dirty and unvarnished. However, it’s a wonderful Gall that is so “Paris” in the period of the 1950s. I have a letter from his daughter, Marie-Lise Gall explaining the painting and dating it 1950. Frame is painted carved wood with motley painted texture that shows wear but still quite serviceable. The inner frame is missing some paint. I’ve tried my best to photograph it as it looks.

Oil and casein tempura on masonite by Fred Ross R.C.A. Signed and dated: “Fred Ross 57″. “Portrait of an Old Man” is an interesting piece. You’ll notice that the old man is winking OR has he lost an eye, at some point? He has many stories to tell. It looks like he’s lost an ear as well. In the painting Fred Ross has put all the names of his family staring on the left with his wife, Sheila. Then there’s Lorna who is the eldest child, then Christopher, next oldest, then there’s a question mark (?) suggesting that there was another child on the way, while he was painting this picture. It turns out that there was another girl, Catherine (Cathy Ross, an accomplished artist as well). This was a part of Max Stern’s collection, owner of the Stern Gallery and Dominion Gallery in Montreal. Labels on the back explain a few things. Frame is gold leaf over wood with a hand rubbed red/brown patina on top. The frame has been made to look like there are worm holes on the top, bottom and both sides. Excellent condition.

Oil and casein tempura on masonite by Fred Ross R.C.A. Signed and dated: “Fred Ross 1956″. This is a staggeringly interesting piece. I won’t try to define it here but suggest you read the written description in the book about Fred Ross, “A Timeless Humanism” by Tom Smart. You’ll notice that the boy is on the far side of the window sill but on the inside of the frame in which he is standing. Also the monkey is threading beads from the bottom upwards. The front of the scull is floating. Fred’s wife’s name, Sheila, is carved into the frame to the left of the boy’s head. Why is there an owl on his shoulder, a piece of rope hanging from the frame and a wish bone also hanging on the frame? Things to ponder when you enter this remarkable painting. This was a part of Max Stern’s collection, owner of the Stern Gallery and Dominion Gallery in Montreal.The frame is gold leaf with some red streaks and spackle. There is a green velvet inner frame to further set the painting apart from the gold colour. Astonishing. Excellent condition. Museum quality.

Huge acrylic, chalk and collage on Masonite panel. Another masterpiece by Fred Ross R.C.A. Entitled: “Artist in Studio” with Judith as the nude model. It’s a fascinating piece of work in that it’s a self portrait with the artist facing us with a nude in front of him facing away from the viewer. Fred has his left foot resting on the divan that she is lying upon. Also there is an easel with another nude paining on it. That small painting is signed: “Fred Ross” in the upper right corner and the main painting is signed: “Fred Ross’ in the extreme lower right corner. Two signatures – quite unique. Next to the artist is a spike of light coming in from a window that sheds light on the subjects from right to left – otherwise it’s a very dark room. The label is from Gallery Walter Klinkhoff stating: “Artist in Studio – Acrylic, chalk and collage 52″ x 42″ Fred Ross” The label also has the Klinkhoff seal that gives this painting its COA. The frame is wood with gold leaf and three grey key lines as a border. There is an inner lined raised fillet that sets the painting away from the frame. Spectacular – a powerful artist’s statement and in perfect condition. Museum quality.
Spectacular Limoges porcelain urn, saturated with gold leaf and hand made florals to the main bowl and to the base to comfort the cherub’s feet.

Atmos clock celebrates the 150th Anniversary of the invention of the Atmos clock by Jaeger-LeCoultre – Geneva. It runs on an air pressure, bellows system that captures the difference in atmospheric pressure when it goes up or down. That change in pressure is caught in the bellows and therefore has the power to run the clock. It’s the closest thing to perpetual motion that has ever been built. This clock has three feet that can be used to level it, and there is a bubble glass to show when it is perfectly level. There is a “150″ medallion and a medallion that states the number, which is 311. The clock has been refurbished in 2007 and keeps excellent time. I might adjust it twice a year for a couple of minutes. There is a manual lever to adjust the mechanism – faster or slower. The dome is blown glass crystal and looks majestic, when it covers the clock’s movement. I have an original marketing brochure but no original packing materials. I have the instructions on starting and setting the time etc. Perfect condition.
Oil on panel by H.W. Wagner, listed Canadian artist 1889-1948. Collectors have many of his works. He did a lot of painting in Algonquin Park. This is two paintings in one. There is an oil sketch on the back with a very dark colour pallet suggesting a late day attempt at capturing the rocks and stream – it’s well done although not complete. I guess he decided to do a new painting on the other side of the panel. It is mounted in a previously used frame as there is an inscription on the back that says “Port du Collioure, France. Collioure is a coastal resort is Mediterranean Sea just North of Spanish border”. The frame is wood with a hand washed finish in dusky grey. Excellent condition.
