Medium: Ink on paper. Condition: Good. The ink image is fine, the paper has some aging around the perimeter. Signature: Lower Right. Size approx 7.5 x 9.5 in. New Frame: 13 x 16. This original ink sketch on paper, is attributed to the famous Henri Matisse. He was the leader of the French Fauvism movement and considered by many, as the greatest colorist of the early 20th century. Henri Matisse was an innovator in the world of art, only rivaled by Picasso. Matisse mastered the use of flowing lines in an arabesque form as displayed in many of his sketches, such as the piece now being auctioned. His sketches appear simple, however, he warned that the simple-like effect was only an apparent simplicity.” He labored in precise manner to achieve the art of balance, of purity and serenity of which he dreamed. This original sketch is catalogued and easily identified as drawn by Matisse. ALL of his original artwork is highly collectible and extremely valuable. It's always considered soberingly investment-grade fine art. The owner/consigner's three favorite modern artists are Matisse, Picasso and Dali. He only purchased (and inherited several pieces) original artwork. Provenance of this and another Matisse in this auction is from his Las Vegas, Nevada estate. You can bid with confidence and rejoice in winning this wonderful piece of fine art, by the masterful artist, Henri Matisse.

Since you do not handle shipping, who contacts the shipper? Can you do it for me if I pay extra?
Unfortunately, we are unable to contact shippers on behalf of buyers. Please note that you must contact your shipper directly to arrange payment and services. We only release merchandise to the shipper, or delivery agency of your choice, after the item has been paid-in-full. Our address for the shippers to pick up from is
Four Seasons Auction Gallery
470 Woodsmill Rd
Gainesville, GA 30501

How do I have my merchandise released?
In order for items to be released to a shipper or delivery agency, please notify us of your arrangements in writing via e-mail.. Since we want to ensure that merchandise is released to the appropriate party, we cannot release items by phone.

Are you open on weekends? May I pick up before 10AM or after 5PM?
Since we have a small staff, and are quite busy after an auction, items must be picked up at our Gainesville, GA location during normal business hours (Monday-Satruday, 10AM to 2PM). We do understand that sometimes items may need to be picked up at a different time and will try to accommodate if possible. Please contact us to schedule a pick-up time if meeting normal business hours is impossible. If not picking up on the day of the auction or the following day you must make an appointment to pick up. Items not picked up within 30 days after the auction will be donated.

Will someone from Four Seasons Auction Gallery help me load my items into my car/truck/van?
Generally, it is the responsibility of the buyer to handle the pick-up of merchandise due to potential liability. Please factor this into your pick-up of very large/heavy items. If we have guys there however, of course we will help.

Can you remove glass from frames, items from bases, etc., for the shipper to pack?
Like loading items for customers, altering or removing parts of an item for a shipper or delivery company is not something that we typically do due to liability. However, if such a situation occurs, we ask that you submit your request in a written statement prior to the handling of your merchandise.

Can I use a different shipping or delivery company than the ones on your preferred list?
Absolutely. You are welcome to select whatever company or individual you would like to ship or deliver your items.

Why are shipping estimates so expensive for my merchandise?
Please note the following when factoring your packing/handling quotes:
•The majority of the shipping cost is typically the packaging/handling cost.
•Generally speaking, it is difficult to find shippers that will handle your items without a base handling fee, i.e. even if an item is small, it will be subject to a minimum handling fee, determined by the shipping company of your choice.
•Since the shippers are out of house and are less familiar with the items, at times, you may pay slightly more, or less, based on the shipper's calculations of an item's weight and/or dimensions.

What should I do if I have difficulty with a shipper?
At Four Seasons, we are very committed to customer service and getting items to buyers. As such, we will assist in the process should you have difficulty with a given shipper. If you are having trouble getting a response back or encounter another issue, please let us know so that we can try to help resolve the issue.
