General Lot Condition: Circle strongly recommends, if at all possible, prospective bidders to examine lots in person prior to placing a bid. Circle representatives make every attempt to note any issue(s) with condition or item damages in the lot description as a courtesy to bidders, but it is the responsibility of the bidder to determine lot condition prior to bidding. The lack of any note by Circle as to the condition of the lot does not imply that the lot is free of wear and tear and/or in mint condition.
Circle representatives are not professional restorators or conservators, and we suggest interested parties consult with conservation professionals for a more detailed opinion. Unless otherwise stated, all lots are sold “AS IS, WHERE IS,” and all sales are final.

Auctioneer Control: During an auction, the Auctioneer is the final arbiter of sales. Bids are called for and recognized incrementally. Placing a bid online or in the auction room does not guarantee the bid will be recognized by the auctioneer owing to the current intensity of bidding or bids already received in increments or amounts already above this bid. Items or lots receiving little or no attention may be “passed” by the Auctioneer and are not subject to a later re-opening of the bidding process or post-auction sale.

Reserves: Some consignors establish reserves on their lots when they send their lots to auction. Reserves are confidential and establish a minimum price under which the lot will not be sold. Reserves must be established no greater than the low end estimate of the lot as published in the catalogue. Circle may open the bidding on reserved lots below the reserve amount by placing a bid on the consignor’s behalf.

Circle will not bid on the consignors behalf above the amount of the established reserve. Consignors are contractually prohibited from bidding on their own lots.

Please note: We will not exceed this amount. Between identical high bids, preference shall be given to the bid received first. A $100.00 minimum bid is required on all lots. Absentee bids will be executed according to our standard bidding increments. Circle executes all absentee bids at its discretion and makes no guarantee nor accepts any liability for any human or electronic failures, oversights or omissions in our absentee or telephone bidding processes.
Bidders who wish to competitively place their bids by telephone during the auction must register with us by completing telephone bidder form no later than one day before the auction is scheduled to begin.

As composer uses little themes in a variety of ways, the designer uses simple lines and masses, repeating, inverting, balancing them, achieving results that are fresh, new and beautiful... His Sentinel Pines, outposts of tree growth, stand alone on a high rolling plateau, gnarly trunks and branches strongly expressed, foliage masses and open spaces, forming patterns against the billowing clouds."

William Frye (alt. George Wilhelm Frye)  (German-American, 1822-1872)  Shipwreck with Mother and Children  Oil on canvas  50" x 42 1/4"    A large-scale tragic history painting of the Romantic movement from William Frye, a noted portrait artist of the mid-19th century.

In the right foreground, water pours into the vessel. The composition is framed by the ship's sail to the left and riggings to the right. In the background, lightning strikes from stormy skies above the waves.    Dramatic scenes of sinking ships were a staple of Romanticism in the 19th century, from Gericault to Delacroix to Turner. Frye's oil is notable within that tradition for its subject being closely observed figures rather than the typical emphasis on large-scale spectacle.    William Frye was a successful portrait artist born in Germany in 1822, who immigrated to the United States, where he worked across the American South.
