Notes: The etching of fine lines, the gradual change of tones in this piece and the sheer simplicity of it is breathtaking. Ilse Noor has been noted for being fond of nature, music, poetry and the like and this fondness has been transmuted into art. This surreal piece, however, speaks volumes not only because of the title and the minute details but the emotions she brings into it, and the viewer instantly captures them. The almost- nostalgic colouring to it makes the yearning for something so palpable. That ‘something’ that is yearned for is completely subjective – is it a yearning for an old, familiar yet dearly-missed place or is it a yearning for calmness, solitude and refuge? Born in Wipperfurth, Germany in 1941, Ilse Noor studied graphic art at the College of Art in Koln and then enhanced her techniques at the Academy of Fine Arts in Munchen. She migrated to Malaysia upon meeting her husband, where she became one of the famous printmaking artists. All her works are manually executed, printed, numbered, titled and signed in pencil on her own.

1.33 Sold Lots should be collected from KLAS at its principal office which is located at the address stated below. Where delivery to the Buyer or his nominee is required, the packing, handling and shipping of lots is entirely at the Buyer's risk and expense (which shall be paid in full before the Lot is shipped out) and KLAS will not, in any circumstances, be responsible for the acts or omissions of the packers or shippers.
1.34 The export of any Lot from Malaysia or import into any other country may require one or more export or import licenses or permits. It is the Buyer's responsibility to obtain any relevant export or import license. The denial of any export or import license will not justify the rescission or cancellation of the Sale by the Buyer or any delay by the Buyer in making payment of the full Purchase Price when due.
1.35 If the Buyer without the prior agreement of KLAS fails to make payment of the full Purchase Price, KLAS will be entitled in its absolute discretion and without prejudice to any other rights which KLAS and the Seller may have, to exercise one or more of the following rights or remedies:
(a) to forthwith terminate and annul the Contract of Sale;
(b) to charge the Buyer, the Seller's and KLAS's Expenses;

(f) to arrange and carry out a resale of the Lot by public auction or private sale in mitigation of the debt owed by the Buyer to KLAS;
(g) set-off any amounts owed by KLAS to the Buyer against any amounts owing by the Buyer to KLAS or any KLAS's affiliated company, whether as the result of any proceeds or sale or otherwise;
(h) exercise a lien over any of the Buyer's property which is in KLAS's possession or in possession;
(i) to insure, remove and store the Lot either at KLAS's premises or elsewhere at the Buyer's sole risk and expense; and/or
(j) to take such other action as KLAS deems necessary or appropriate.
1.36 Where KLAS decides to resell any Lot pursuant to paragraph 1.33, the Buyer and the Seller hereby consent to and authorise KLAS to arrange and carry out the resale and agree that the level of the Reserve and the Estimates relevant to such resale will be at KLAS's sole discretion. The net sale proceeds (after Expenses) will be applied in reduction of the Buyer's debt. If a resale should result in a lower price than the original hammer price obtained, KLAS and the Seller will be entitled to claim any shortfall in the Purchase price from the Buyer together with any costs incurred. If the resale results in a higher price than the original Hammer Price obtained, the surplus will be paid to the Seller. In such case, the Buyer waives any claim which the Buyer may have to the Lot and agrees that any resale price will be deemed commercially reasonable.
