Absentee and Internet Bidders Please Note: We are pleased to offer absentee and phone bidding for prospective bidders who cannot be present at the auction. Please complete the Absentee Bid and/or Phone Reservation form. Absentee bids left with us are executed competitively and confidentially. In the case of identical bids placed by absentee bidders, the bid received first will prevail. Bids left on ebay are not executed until the item is offered in the live auction and the order in which they are received is not a factor. Bidding increments designated by the Museum of Latin American Art are guidelines only. The Museum of Latin American Art and/ or the Auctioneer reserve the right to deviate from stated bidding increments as they deem appropriate. In the event of a tie bid, preference will be given to the earliest absentee bid received or to the bidder present on the floor. Please note: In rare cases an absentee bid that has been submitted through the Internet, may not be accepted by the Auctioneer conducting the sale (in some cases, an equivalent absentee bid may have been left directly with us at our offices). This may occur even when the Internet absentee bid was placed earlier than an equivalent absentee bid. In all cases the auctioneer has final discretion over which bids to accept. We are not responsible for inadvertent bids, or problems arising due to Internet connections or incorrect computer settings. We make every effort to honor all absentee and phone bid reservations, but we are not liable for any losses incurred as a result of failure to execute absentee bids or failed phone reservations. Submitting left bids or bidding by phone does not imply an extension of credit. All sizes are approximate and size refers to size of image. Internet Bidders Please note: Your bid is a contract. Place a bid only if you're serious about buying the item. If you are the successful and winning bidder, you have entered into a legally binding contract to purchase the property bid on from the seller. You should contact the seller to resolve any questions before bidding. Before placing any bid read the terms and shipping charges. Placing bids by absentee, phone, Internet or live indicates that you understand these terms and shipping charges. Internet purchases may be made by a major credit card only. The Museum of Latin American Art will communicate with winning Internet bidders within 3 days of the close of the auction. Once winning bidders have been contacted by the Museum of Latin American Art, they must respond to the Museum within three days.

After the 48 hour period all items are considered, without recourse. No lot is returnable on account of property included but not specifically named and described in such lot. In the event of an inconsistency between this Agreement and any other document, which is part of this Agreement, the terms of this Agreement shall govern.

Each amendment will be effective immediately after it is initially posted on the MoLAA Site, emailed to the Buyer, or otherwise communicated to the Buyer. The information in this catalog is believed to be correct. However, MoLAA assumes no liability for omissions or errors. Artwork is sold "as is".
