3. Buyer’s obligation to inspect each item: Buyers are strongly encouraged to view all items auctioned on display before the auction to
determine the true condition and nature of any item(s) of interest. Although there is no legal requirement that each buyer inspect lots purchased
before the auction, the failure to inspect may constitute a waiver of that buyer’s complaint that the item was not delivered in a condition equal to
the existent condition at the auction as described in section 14 of these Conditions of Sale.
4. All Sales Final: Notwithstanding any other terms of these conditions, any and all refunds shall be given at the sole discretion of JMA. Refunds
requested on the grounds of authenticity must be made within 10 days of the auction date, and such requests must be accompanied by at least
one supporting statement in writing from a recognized authority stating that the painting or art sold is incorrect or not the work of the artist. A
recognized authority shall be defined as a person who has authored, edited, or substantially contributed to a monograph on the artist, a person
who has curated, organized or substantially contributed to a solo exhibition on the artist, a person who has represented the artists estate or
someone who represented or worked closely with the artist while they were alive and, in any of the above instances physically handled works of
the period, medium and subject matter in question during the course of their duties. Please note that dealers who advertise to buy a wide range of
artists, appraisers and representatives of other auction firms do not qualify as authenticators of individual artists unless they have had such specific
involvement with an artists work as specified above in addition to their daily duties. Any lot in question must be returned to JMA in the exact same
condition as when sold. Please be advised that JMA does not grant extensions to refund considerations based upon authenticity due to shipping
delays. There are no exceptions to this refund policy.
5. The Right to withdraw Lots: JMA reserves the right to withdraw any lot before or at the sale.
6. Buyer’s Premium: The buyer agrees to pay the sum of the hammer price plus a premium of 25.5% (of the hammer price). A discount of 2.5%
is applied if paying by check, cash or wire transfer, and a 3% discount will apply if bidding via the floor, telephone or absentee, together with any
applicable tax. Buyers outside of the United states must submit payment via wire transfer. Credit cards are not an accepted form of payment for
buyers outside of the United States.
7. Lots are Subject to a Reserve Price: Some lots in the auction are subject to a reserve, which is the confidential minimum price below which the
lot will not be sold (the reserve). In no event will the reserve price exceed the low estimate. JMA shall act to protect the reserve by bidding through
the auctioneer. The auctioneer may open 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 the seller up to the amount of the reserve, either by placing consecutive bids or by placing bids in response to other bidders.
The estimates provided by JMA concerning a given lot, are carefully considered opinions of the cataloguer and fine art staff. Any estimates given
are merely suggestive guidelines for interested buyers. Buyers must be aware that paintings and art are subject to fluctuating values depending on
the subjective interests of collectors and a wide variety of other uncontrollable factors. The lots auctioned may sell at prices either above or below
estimates.
8. Winning Bid Constitutes an Immediate Transfer of Title: Title to the offered lot shall pass to the buyer upon the fall of the auctioneer's
hammer and announcement by the auctioneer that the lot has been sold, subject to compliance by the buyer with all other Conditions of Sale.
The buyer shall forthwith assume full risk and responsibility for the lot and shall pay the full purchase price or such part thereof as JMA, in its sole
discretion, shall require. In addition, the buyer may be required to sign a confirmation of purchase or abide by any other financial terms that JMA
deems necessary to protect the interest of the consignors.

9. Removal of Purchased lots: All items sold may not be removed from JMA’s premises, or the premises of the auction, until the buyer has paid in

for and removed from JMA premises at the buyer’s expense no later than the third calendar day following the sale, and, if not so removed, JMA may
transfer any such lot to its warehouse at the risk and expense of the buyer. If a lot has not been collected the third calendar day following the sale
