The Bloomfield/Taylor Family Collection

A wonderful family collection spanning three

centuries from Arthur Bloomfield, William

Taylor, Sir John and Lady Bloomfield (nee

Taylor), Peter and Julia Bloomfield and their

daughter Sally Bloomfield.

Peter Bloomfield, a well-known Melbourne

Interior Designer spent his childhood between

family properties Fersfield, Overnewton

and 252 Domain Road – owned by father

Arthur Stoughton Clarke Bloomfield, a rubber

plantation owner and wealthy pastoralist

William Henry Taylor. On his 21st birthday he

moved to Sydney and rented an apartment

with artists Jeffrey Smart and Justin O’Brien,

among others. Soon after he decided to

travel and moved to London where he worked

at Peter Jones, before moving to New York,

Canada and then the Bahamas, he settled

back to life in London and started working with

Terence and Shirley Conran. It was there where

he met Julia Baker, who had been working with

Terence for several years.

They married in London, had their first child

Nicholas and moved to Australia, where their

daughter Sally was born. Peter’s first job back

in Australia was managing Featherstone

Interiors (Grant Featherstone) in Lonsdale

Street. His next venture was with his friend Bill

Snell, whom he worked with at Featherstone’s.

They opened Concept Office Interiors in

Clarendon Street, South Melbourne. It was

the one of the first stylish office interior stores

in Australia, with Bill and Peter working with

important designers including Sue Carr (Carr

Design). Eventually Peter went on to establish

his own Interior Design business working

mainly in residential property.

Julia Bloomfield continued to be involved

in the interior business and opened in

Piaff in Mount Eliza, where the family now

lived. It was a beautiful home and lifestyle

store and one of the first homeware stores,

as we know them today.


7

Following the family tradition, Sally Bloomfield

started her career in interior design, working

with Sue Carr at Inarc Design. After a few

years and itchy feet Sally travelled to Europe

and eventually moved to London to work with

Tricia Guild at Designers Guild on Kings Road.

Upon her return to Australia she moved into

the Fashion world, working at Esprit, King

Enterprises, Witchery and eventually Style

Council, a fashion advertising and PR company

where she remained for many years. From there

Sally landed her dream job at Harper’s Bazaar

where she was the Melbourne Editor for three

and a half years.

During this time she met her soon-to-be

husband Ian Robertson, who was the founder

of Q Bar Nightclubs in Melbourne, Sydney and

Adelaide. Together they bought the Albany Hotel

in South Yarra and spent many years renovating

and running the 85 room hotel. All the midcentury

pieces in this auction were at one time

at The Albany. During this time Ian and Sally took

on an enormous project on level 2 at the GPO in

Melbourne, with 3 dining areas and a nightclub.

In 2012 the Albany hotel was sold and the

family moved to Bali. Their dream was to build

a hotel on the island and they set about finding

the right property. Sadly in 2016, halfway

through the build, Ian passed away and after

much deliberation Sally decided to finish their

dream. The gorgeous boutique hotel that had

been their home, opened in November 2017

– it was a bittersweet moment. During this

time, Sally was asked to be a part of Season

4 of The Real Housewives of Melbourne,

which aired in 2017/2018, which was a great

distraction at a difficult time and something she

thoroughly enjoyed.

Sally is now raising her two boys on the

Mornington Peninsula.

The Naïve Art Collection

of the Late Claude Ullin AM

Founder of Gallery Art Naïve

Defined as an ‘indefatigable supporter’ of

the arts community, Claude Ullin AM was

a tireless pioneer and promoter of the

Australian arts scene.

Art was in Claude’s blood – born in 1937

in Milan, Italy, he was the descendent of

distinguished German Jewish art collectors.

Over several decades, the family acquired

significant paintings and sculptures to form a

substantial art collection that was either stolen,

abandoned or dissolved through involuntary

sale when the family sought refuge in Australia

during World War II.

Having been surrounded by art in his youth,

Claude launched successful creative

advertising agency Higgins Ullin Advertising

(later Ullin & Partners) through the 1970s.

Finally, his passion for art took over, purchasing

a large Spanish Revival home at 430 Punt Road,

South Yarra and repurposing the building to

become Gallery Art Naïve in 1978 – the first

very first totally dedicated gallery to showcase

Naïve Art. At that time, Australian Galleries was

the only gallery that would occasionally show

works of that genre.

Focussing on underrepresented artists, the

gallery launched a number of careers such as

Roma Higgins, Narelle Wildman, Dick Roughsey,

Percy Tresize and Jimmy Archer, showing

up to 80 artists during the gallery’s tenure.

Gallery Art Naïve was extremely important

in the proliferation of Australian Naïve Art to

a far wider audience, including Billy Joel and

Christie Brinkley who came to the gallery and

commissioned a work by Joanne Netting

in the 1980s.


53

The gallery was a labour of love, manned by a

director through the week and by Claude on his

only free day, Sunday. Whilst his children played

in the front yard, Claude would be entertaining

and exhibiting, showing collectors, artists,

musicians and influential people the talents of

his artistic stable. He would pursue artists he

wanted to show to any length, regularly driving

hundreds of kilometres away with his wife in

the passenger seat and children piled in the

back. One such artist was Lorna Chick, whose

works are represented in this catalogue. His

dedication to onboarding artists was equal to

his dedication to them as a devoted supporter,

forming many lifelong friendships with artists,

clients, and patrons alike.

A true contributor to the broader Australian arts

scene, Claude would later open High on Art

gallery in Armadale, specialising in Indigenous

art, and also founded and generously funded

the Lyric Opera Company of Melbourne.

Besides his artist endeavours, Claude was

also a councillor of the Stonnington City

Council and multiple-time mayor for the City.

Claude was appointed a Member (AM) of

the Order of Australia in 2017, celebrating

his lifelong commitment to promoting the

arts, multiculturalism and his work in local

government.

NOTE

Paul Mazaroz was an unusual

character. Born in Lons-le-Saunier,

friend of Gustave Courbet, Mazaroz

was a patron of the arts and a sculptor,

who also wrote sociological and

economic essays.

He worked in Riballeurís workshop

in Paris and became his partner

after marrying the man's daughter

in 1853. This partnership shifted the

Ribailleur-Mazaroz company's focus

towards modernity. Indeed, after

the World's Fair of 1851, Mazaroz

discovered how the English used

machines for cabinet making and was

the first to use them in France. Hence,

he liked to call himself an 'industrial

artist'. This desire to be grounded in

the age and progress of his times was

shown in the book of photography

he produced to present his creations

instead of a simple catalogue of

engravings. Supplier of Napoleon III,

his company was one of the most

prosperous in France during the

Second Empire and the 3rd Republic.

2. Gibson’s Auctioneers & Valuers

as Agent

Except as otherwise stated Gibson's acts as agent

for the Seller.

The contract for the Sale of the property is therefore

made between the Seller and the Buyer.

3. Before the Sale

A) EXAMINATION OF PROPERTY

Prospective Buyers are strongly advised to examine

in person any property in which they are interested

before the Auction takes place. Neither Gibson's

nor the Seller provides any guarantee in relation to

the nature of the property apart from the Limited

Warranty in the paragraph below.

The property is otherwise sold “as is”.

B) CATALOGUE AND OTHER DESCRIPTIONS

All statements by Gibson's in the catalogue entry for

the property or in the condition report, or made orally

or in writing elsewhere, are statements of opinion

and are not to be relied upon as statements of fact.

Such statements do not constitute a representation,

warranty or assumption of liability by Gibson's of

any kind. References in the catalogue entry to the

condition report, including damage or restoration

are for guidance only and should be evaluated by

personal inspection by the Bidder or a knowledgeable

representative. The absence of such a reference

does not imply that an item is free from defects or

restoration, nor does a reference to particular defects

imply the absence of any others. Estimates of the

selling price should not be relied on as a statement

that this is the price at which the item will sell or it’s

value for any other purpose. Neither Gibson's nor the

Seller is responsible for any errors or omissions in the

catalogue or any supplemental material.

Images are measured height by width. Illustrations

are provided only as a guide and should not be relied

upon as a true representation of colour or condition.

Images are not shown at a standard scale. Mention

is rarely made of frames (which may be provided as

supplementary images on the website) which do

not form part of the Lot as described in the printed

catalogue.

All transactions are in Australian Dollars so there

may be a small exchange rate risk, for international

Buyers. The costs associated with acquiring a goods

certificate will be borne by the Buyer. If the item

turns out to be a Forgery or otherwise incorrectly

described, all reasonable costs will be borne by the

Seller.

C) BUYER'S RESPONSIBILITY

All property is sold “as is” without representation or

warranty of any kind by Gibson's or the Seller. Buyers

are responsible for satisfying themselves concerning

the condition of the property and the matters referred

to in the catalogue by requesting a condition report

4. At the Sale

A) REFUSAL OF ADMISSION

Gibson's reserves the right at our complete discretion

to refuse admission to the Auction premises or

participation in any Auction and to reject any Bid.

B) REGISTRATION BEFORE BIDDING

Any new Prospective Buyer must complete and

sign a registration form and provide photographic

identification before Bidding. Gibson's may

request bank, trade or other financial references to

substantiate this registration.

C) BIDDING AS A PRINCIPAL

When making a Bid, a Bidder is accepting personal

liability to pay the purchase price including the

Buyer's Premium and all applicable taxes, plus

all other applicable charges, unless it has been

explicitly agreed in writing with Gibson's before

the commencement of the Sale that the Bidder is

acting as agent on behalf of an identified third party

acceptable to Gibson's and that Gibson's will only

look to the principal for payment.

D) INTERNATIONAL REGISTRATIONS

All international clients not known to Gibson's will

be required to scan or fax through an accredited

form of photo identification and pay a deposit at our

discretion in cleared funds into Gibson's account

at least 48 hours before the commencement of

the Auction. Bids will not be accepted without

this deposit. Gibson's also reserves the right to

request any additional forms of identification prior to

registering an overseas Bid.

This deposit can be made using a credit card,

however the balance of any purchase price in excess

of $5,000 can not be charged to this card without

prior arrangement. This deposit is redeemable

against any Auction purchase.

E) ABSENTEE BIDS

Gibson's will use reasonable efforts to execute written

Bids delivered to us at least 24 hours prior to the

Sale for the convenience of those clients who are

unable to attend the Auction in person. If Gibson's

receives identical written Bids on a particular Lot, and

at the Auction these are the highest Bids on that Lot,

then the Lot will be sold to the person whose written

Bid was received and accepted first. Execution of

written Bids is a free service undertaken subject to

other commitments at the time of the Sale and we

do not accept liability for failing to execute a written

Bid or for errors or omissions which may arise. It is

the Bidder’s responsibility to check with Gibson's

after the Auction if they were successful. Unlimited

or “Buy” Bids will not be accepted. Please refer to our

indicative Bidding increments below for appropriate

absentee Bid amounts (Section K).

F) TELEPHONE BIDS

Priority will be given to overseas and interstate

Bidders. Arrangements for this service must be

confirmed at least 24 hours prior to the Auction

commencing. Gibson's accepts no responsibility

whatsoever for any errors or failure to execute Bids.

In telephone Bidding the Buyer agrees to be bound

by all terms and conditions listed here and accepts

that Gibson's cannot be held responsible for any

miscommunications in the process. The success

of telephone Bidding cannot be guaranteed due to

circumstances that are unforeseen. Buyers should

be aware of the risk and accept the consequences

should contact be unsuccessful at the time of

Auction. You must advise Gibson's of the Lots in

question and recommend a ‘Cover Bid’ amount

should there be any issues with technology or

communication via the telephone number provided.

Gibson's will advise Telephone Bidders who have

registered at least 24 hours before the Auction of any

relevant changes to descriptions, withdrawals or any

other Sale room notices.

G) ONLINE BIDDING

Gibson's accepts no responsibility for any

errors, failure to execute Bids or any other

miscommunications regarding this process. It is the

online Bidder’s responsibility to ensure the accuracy

of the relevant information regarding Bids, Lot

numbers and contact details.


121

H) RESERVES

Unless otherwise indicated, all Lots are offered

subject to a Reserve, which is the confidential

minimum price below which the Lot will not be sold.

The Reserve will not exceed the low estimate printed

in the catalogue. The Auctioneer may open the

Bidding on any Lot below the Reserve by placing

a Bid on behalf of the Seller. The Auctioneer may

continue to Bid on behalf of Seller up to the amount

of the Reserve, either by placing consecutive Bids or

by placing Bids in response to other Bidders.

I) AUCTIONEERS DISCRETION

The Auctioneer has the right at his absolute and sole

discretion to refuse any Bid, to advance the Bidding

in such a manner as he may decide, to withdraw or

divide any Lot, to combine any two or more Lots and,

in the case or error or dispute and whether during or

after the Sale, to determine the successful Bidder,

to continue the Bidding, to cancel the Sale or to

re-offer and resell the item in dispute. If any dispute

arises after the Sale, then Gibson's Sale record is

conclusive.

J) SUCCESSFUL BID AND PASSING OF RISK

Subject to the Auctioneer’s discretion, on the

acceptance of a Bid by the fall of the Auctioneer's

hammer, a contract of sale is made between the

Seller and the Buyer. Risk and responsibility for the

Lot (including frames or glass where relevant) passes

immediately to the Buyer. Gibson's shall not be liable

for any breach of contract by either the Seller or

the Buyer.

damage or breakage that may occur.

expense. All packing, shipping, insurance, postage &

associated charges will be borne by the purchaser.

Gibson's can assist with removal companies that the

Buyer can use but takes no responsibility whatsoever

for the actions of any recommended third party.

F) CULTURAL HERITAGE EXPORT LICENCES

Unless otherwise agreed by Gibson's in writing, the

fact that the Buyer wishes to apply for an export

licence does not affect their obligation to make full

payment immediately, nor Gibson's right to charge

interest or storage charges on late payment. It is

the responsibility of the Buyer to check Australia’s

Protection of Moveable Cultural Heritage Act 1986

prior to purchase. Export/import licences applications

are the responsibility of the Buyer and/or the Buyer's

nominated shipper. Gibson's shall not be obliged to

rescind a Sale nor to refund any expenses incurred by

the Buyer in circumstances where an export licence

is not granted.

G) REMEDIES FOR NON-PAYMENT

If the Buyer fails to make full payment immediately,

Gibson's is entitled to exercise one or more of the

following rights or remedies (in addition to asserting

any other rights or remedies available under the law)

i) to charge interest at the ANZ visa credit card

rate as published weekly in the Australian

Financial Review;

ii)

iii)

iv)

to hold the defaulting Buyer liable for the

total amount due and to commence legal

proceedings for it’s recovery along with interest,

legal fees and costs to the fullest extent

permitted under applicable law;

to cancel the Sale;

to resell the property publicly or privately on

such terms as we see fit;

v) to pay the Seller an amount up to the net

proceeds payable in respect of the amount Bid

by the defaulting Buyer. In these circumstances

the defaulting Buyer can have no claim upon

Gibson's in the event that the Lot(s) are sold for

an amount greater than the original invoiced

amount;

vi)

to offset against any amounts which Gibson's

may owe the Buyer across any other

transactions;

viii) to reject at any future Auction any Bids made by

or on behalf of the Buyer or to obtain a deposit

from the Buyer prior to accepting any Bids;

ix)

to exercise all the rights and remedies of a

person holding security over any property in

our possession owned by the Buyer whether by

way of pledge, security interest or in any other

way, to the fullest extent permitted by the law of

the place where such property is located. The

Buyer will be deemed to have been granted such

security to us and we may retain such property

as collateral security for such Buyer’s obligations

to us;

x) to take such other action as Gibson's deem

necessary or appropriate.

H) FAILURE TO COLLECT PURCHASES

Where purchases are not collected within three (3)

days from the Sale date, whether or not payment has

been made, Gibson's shall be permitted to:

i) remove, store and further insure the Lot at the

expense of the Buyer, releasing only after full

payment has been received from the Buyer for

incurred costs;

ii)

iii)

re-sell the Lot without Reserve by Auction,

private treaty or any other means whereby the

Buyer agrees not to challenge the resale price

achieved

rescind the Sale of that Lot or any other Lot sold

by the Seller to the Buyer at the same or any

other Auction

If Gibson's do re-sell the property under clauses H

and G, the defaulting Buyer agrees to be liable for

all payments of any deficiency between the total

amount originally due and the price obtained, as well

as the legal as all costs, expenses, damages, legal

fees, commissions and premiums of whatever kinds

associated with both Sales or otherwise arising from

the default.

6. Extent of Gibson's Liability

Gibson's agrees to refund the purchase price in

the circumstances of the Limited Warranty set out

in paragraph 7. Apart from that, neither the Seller

nor we, nor any of our employees or agents are

responsible for the correctness of any statement of

whatever kind concerning any Lot, whether written

or oral, nor for any other errors or omissions in

description or for any faults or defects in any Lots.

Except as stated in paragraph 7 below, neither the

Seller ourselves, our officers, agents or employees

give any representation warranty or guarantee or

assume any liability of any kind in respect of any

Lot with regard to merchantability, fitness for a

particular purpose, description, size, quality, condition,

attribution, authenticity, rarity, importance, medium,

provenance, exhibition history, literature or historical

relevance. Except as required by local law any

warranty of any kind is excluded by this paragraph.

to be the work of a named author or authorship is

authentic and not a forgery. The term “Author” or

The warranty is subject to the following:

15. Jewels & Watches

GEMSTONES

Gemstones have historically been subjected to a

variety of treatments to enhance their appearance.

Sapphire and rubies are routinely heat treated to

improve their colour and clarity, similarly emeralds

are frequently treated with oils or resin for the same

purpose. Other treatments such as staining or dyeing,

irradiation, filling or coating may have been used

on other precious and semi-precious gemstones

and organic material. These treatments may be

permanent, whilst others may need special care to

reserve their appearance. Buyers should assume that

each Lot has been subject to some form of treatment

and that the estimates reflect this.

A number of laboratories issue certificates that give

detailed descriptions of gemstones, and in the event

that Gibson's has been supplied with or obtained

certificates for any Lot, this shall be noted in the

catalogue. However, as there may not be consensus

between different laboratories on the degree, or

types of treatment of the gemstones, Gibson's

supplies these without warranty.

Buyers should assume that all gemstones sold

by Gibson's may have been subjected to such

treatments, and that the catalogue estimates reflect

this.

PEARLS

Pearls, like gemstones, are also subject to various

treatments. Buyers should assume that any pearls

sold by Gibson's may have been subjected to such

treatments, and that the catalogue estimates reflect

this.

WATCHES

Please note: All watches sold by Gibson's are sold on

an “as is” basis. Gibson's makes no representation

or warranty that any watch is in working order. Many

watches have been repaired over their lifetime and

may contain non-original parts. The absence of any

reference to the condition of a watch does not imply

that the Lot is in good condition and without defects,

repairs or restorations. Buyers should be aware that

a general service, change of battery or further repair

work, for which the Buyer is solely responsible for,

may be necessary.

ESTIMATED WEIGHTS

If a stone has a known weight, it has been weighed

out of the mount. If a stone has an estimated weight,

it is an approximate weight only and has been

measured by us in the mount and is a statement of

opinion only. The information is given as a guide only

and Buyers should satisfy themselves with regard to

this information as to its accuracy.
