TITLE: Avalanche
ARTIST: Bae Woo-hyeon
YEAR: 4459
TYPE: Oil on canvas. 130.7 by 95.6 cm; 51½ by 37⅝ in.
OWNER/COLLECTION: Cheng Clan of Indrala
LOCATION: Unknown, presumably in the private collection of Cheng Clan of Indrala
VALUATION: Est. $77,370 - $103,160; Sold in 4460 for $84,000

OVERVIEW: The fiercely resplendent Avalanche (4459) was created by painter Bae Woo-hyeon after three months spent in deep immersion in the mountains of Northern Dankuk. It was sold at the Bae Foundation Fundraising Gala in Yonseo, Dankuk in 4460, exceeding expectations after being purchased by the Cheng Clan for $84,000, which was $15,000 over the opening bid. According to Indralan art critic Li Gaozhong:

The painting displays not only [Bae Woo-hyeon's] unbridled, virtuosic expressionist aesthetic but also a distinctive trace of her Gao Showan roots. Forsaking outline and brush, Bae threw paint and acrylic on his canvas in thick, spirited spatters, dripping, heaping and layering with knives: the resulting marks and sinewy trails are fluid and lithe as if borne by wind, embodying the vigor and dynamism of splashed calligraphic ink.

Bae's astonishingly complex pictorial surfaces are at once rugged and majestic, exuding a quietly gripping cosmic dynamism that is humble yet transcendent. Mesmerizing sheens of color shimmer through a glossed lacquer finish reminiscent of traditional Gao-Showan pottery. Bae's art is directed toward the sources, and goes back to the primitive elements of Gao Showan art, whose masterpieces formerly realized the perfect unity of signs and matter.

TITLE: "Alongside the Montañas Celestiales, Ralston"
ARTIST: Wolfgang Schottenstein
YEAR: 1871
TYPE: Oil on canvas. 183 x 305 cm; 72 x 120 1/8 in.
OWNER: National Institute of Baltusian Art and Culture
LOCATION: Johnston, District of Dove (D.D.)
VALUATION: $4,565,273 - $5,123,078

OVERVIEW: This pastoral scene was painted by Wolfgang Schottenstein, a Dorvish explorer and graduate of the Cedar River School in what is present day Westbrook, Baltusia. In impeccable detail, a famous aspect of most of Schottenstein's works, it depicts the Montañas Celestiales, which cover mostly Ralston and twist southwestward through New Egelion, a part of the Greater Seleyan Mountain Range that snakes through most of the continent. A herd of deer also congregate alongside the bank of a river, which Schottenstein states from his diary spontaneously grazed into his vision whilst he was painting.

The painting was donated by the Cedar River School to the National Institute of Baltusian Art and Culture in 1981.

TITLE: Republic of Fortland
ARTIST: Mathis Barreau (architect)
YEAR: 2570s (estimated)
TYPE: Originally constructed as an off-shore anti-aircraft gun platform
OWNER: Geoffrey Briggs
LOCATION: Odufart Sea, off the coast of Noumonde
VALUATION: Estimates vary between $300,000 and $900,000

OVERVIEW: "Fortland", originally known as the "Barreau Tower" after the name of its architect, was constructed by Rildanor during the 2570s in order to protect shipping lanes between Noumonde, its newly-acquired colony, and south Seleya.

Governments have long since abandoned the installation. Technically, it was built illegally as it falls outside of Noumonde's territorial waters, and under international law is considered "terra nullius" or "nobody's land".

Recently, Fortland has been commandeered by Geoffrey Briggs, a retired major in the Luthori army and a noted eccentric. Briggs has set himself up there along with his wife, Shirley. His son, Henry, and daughter, Elizabeth, occasionally stay him with as well.

On 14th April 4459, Briggs released a "Declaration of Statehood", declaring the structure to be its own country, to be known as the "Republic of Fortland", of which he is President. The Declaration calls on other nations to formally recognise Fortland and establish diplomatic relations, and also calls on the World Congress to admit Fortland as a member.

As well as being Terra's newest nation and a country with great aspirations for the future which personifies the ideals of liberty, justice and equality, Fortland is also a splendid work of art from a purely architectural point of view, as well as a unique historical artifact, being one of only four installations of its type and of its era anywhere in Terra. Artists regularly come to draw it, and photographers to photograph it. In addition to this, Fortland hosts small permanent and temporary art exhibitions, making it a much-loved destination for art luvvies.
