PROPERTY FROM A PRIVATE COLLECTION Sir Peter Paul Rubens SIEGEN 1577 - 1640 ANTWERP THE ANNUNCIATION oil on panel 42 by 31.4 cm.; 16 1/2 by 12 3/8 in. The following condition report is provided by Hamish Dewar who is an external specialist and not an employee of Sotheby's: Structural Condition The artist's panel has been cradled and this has successfully secured and stabilised two horizontal repaired splits. These are approximately 11 cm from the upper framing edge and approximately 15 cm above the lower horizontal framing edge. These repairs are only just visible in a strong raking light and are not visually distracting. Paint surface The paint surface has an even varnish layer. Inspection under ultra-violet light shows thin lines of retouching along the two horizontal repairs to the panel mentioned above. The retouching along the upper repair is approximately 5 cm in length whereas the retouching on the lower of the two repairs runs across the width of paint surface. There would appear to be very few other retouchings with just very small scattered spots of inpainting being visible under ultra-violet light. The fine detail of the painting would appear to be remarkably well preserved. Summary The painting would therefore appear to be in very good and stable condition and no further work is required. "This lot is offered for sale subject to Sotheby's Conditions of Business, which are available on request and printed in Sotheby's sale catalogues.

Acquired by Kojiro Matsukata (1865-1950), by 1922; Sotheby’’’’s, New York, 13 March 1985, lot 117, as ‘Manner of Rubens’’’’ . with Colnaghi’’’’s, 1986. PROPERTY FROM THE BEBE AND CROSBY KEMPER COLLECTION Crosby and Bebe Kemper were, for many years, among the most dynamic forces on the Kansas City art scene. It is, therefore, a privilege to be presenting for sale a selection from their collection which illustrates both their eye for quality and the fascination with history which is a hallmark of the Kemper collecting taste. Kansas City has for decades been a fertile ground for the collecting of classic European art. It is home to the greatest painting by Caravaggio in the US (a painting rejected, by the way, by the Metropolitan Museum in New York in 1951!) among many others in the Nelson-Atkins Museum. Crosby was an extraordinarily generous supporter of that museum and I well remember working with him, when in the face of considerable uncertainty over its condition, we went ahead and bought the magnificent Portrait of Mrs. Cecil Wade by John Singer Sargent at public auction in 1986. The belief in his own judgment, his commitment to Art with a capital 'A' and his unbounded generosity, all of which were exhibited with this purchase and its subsequent donation to the Nelson-Atkins Museum all typify Crosby both as a man and as a collector. The collection which he and Bebe formed is extremely eclectic, as one might expect from a couple of such intellectual curiosity. It includes the tender portrait of Baronne de Thiers, niece of the collector and Watteau's great patron, Pierre Crozat, by the French 18th-century portraitist, Nattier, a portrait of a man by Rubens once owned by the Dukes of Kent, a portrait of Rembrandt's patron, Susanna Pellicorne by Poelenbergh as well as portraits by Greuze, Corot, Caillebotte, Degas, Wyeth and even Lucien Freud. Clearly Crosby and Bebe have been especially drawn to portraiture and perhaps that says something about their sociability and their humanity. When I came to America as a young art dealer in 1983, Crosby and Bebe, who were among my earliest clients, were unfailingly hospitable when I visited Kansas City or even when they came en famille to New York. Crosby passed away in January 2014, but his legacy will live on in the numerous institutions to which he and Bebe were so generous. Among them were the Nelson-Atkins Museum, but there was also the Kansas City Symphony, the Whitney Museum, Monticello and the Addison Gallery at Phillips Academy in Andover, Massachusetts. In the end perhaps their greatest and most generous contribution was to their own Kemper Museum which houses an important collection of Post-War and Contemporary art. Nicholas H.J. Hall R.
