In the presence of Her Royal Highness Princess Michael of Kent


T operation marked what I call my “renaissance” - and as many as one in four of those he afflicted by Parkinson’s can benefit from this surgery. Professor Marwan Hariz, Dr Patricia Limousin and the team at Queen Square London are refining the technique and helping to break new ground. T work deserves your generous support.” heir Michael Holman Before my DBS operation, I suffered from daily ‘freezing’ which made me feel like a statue on a plinth - not able to show any facial emotion or move easily from one position to another. After my DBS operation, I regained the ability to smile and express normal emotions. My life has been transformed thanks to Professor Hariz, his team and T he Parkinson’s Appeal. Stuart Carter Professor Marwan Hariz and team, whose work is funded by T Parkinson’s Appeal for he Deep Brain Stimulation, are truly amazing. I am so grateful to be under their care and have never met a team more talented, compassionate and totally dedicated to helping improve the lives of people like me. Amy Westall

When my brilliant charismatic husband Mo, a movie mogul in the true sense of the word, was diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease 8 years ago, our lives changed dramatically. There are 120,000 sufferers in Britain – among the over sixty-five’s the rate is one person in one hundred. Parkinson’s does not always kill its victims but it kills their way of life. I recently saw a plaque inscribed “The generosity of few is the hope of many”. This could have been written of Simon Sainsbury without whom we would not have been fortunate enough to have secured the services of the world renowned neurosurgeon Professor Marwan Hariz, who relocated from Sweden to form a team at University College Hospital, Queen Square, London, to perform a pioneering procedure called Deep Brain Stimulation (DBS). This miraculous surgery has changed the lives of many sufferers worldwide and his research has lead to DBS being used for many other movement disorders such as Dystonia, Tourettes, severe Obsessive Compulsive disorder, some cases of Epilepsy that cannot be treated with drugs and deafferentation (phantom pain). Both Fergus and I have been overwhelmed by the immensely generous response of all the artists, photographers, designers, event organiser Urban Caprice, everyone at St John,

especially Trevor Gulliver, Nicky Keane of JB Pelham PR who has worked many long hours, Christie’s and particularly Jussi Pylkkanen; all have contributed to the Auction on October 16th and without whom this event would never have happened. We are much indebted to the artists’ dealers who without exception have waived their fee to support the appeal. We are also extremely grateful to our advisory committee, Sadie Coles, Kay Hartenstein-Saatchi, Stewart Grimshaw, Jussi Pylkkanen, Johnathan Rutherfurd Best, Martin Westall, Jasmin Pelham, Marion Naggar, Meredith Etherington-Smith and Francesca Amfitheatrof, who despite their busy schedules have worked tirelessly to ensure the smooth running of the event. Last, but very much not least, The Monument Trust, The Edmond J. Safra Foundation, The Peacock Trust, Culture Shock, Emily James, Dan Lywood, Piers Thompson and Roy Smiljanic for their generous and invaluable contributions. There are so many of you here tonight who have generously contributed over the years, enabling Professor Hariz and his team to continue this important research. Thank you all. In the words of one patient “This operation has given me back my self esteem, human dignity and quite frankly my life.”

Lyn Rothman

Dear Lyn Your latest child, nick-named U-FuN (Unit of Functional Neurosurgery) will celebrate its 5th year in October 2007. You entrusted the custody of the U-FuN to the Institute of Neurology and the National Hospital of Neurology and Neurosurgery at Queen Square. As Head of the U-FuN, I feel very sorry and frustrated that I cannot be personally with, and among, you at this wonderful art event. But be assured that my thoughts are there, and may I take this occasion of our Unit´s birthday anniversary, to congratulate you on such an endeavour: From nothing you created everything; thanks to you, more than 135 patients so far have been able to undergo the deep brain stimulation procedure aimed at alleviating the symptoms of their Parkinson´s disease or dystonia or essential tremor, all of which provoke disorders with uncontrollable movements that impair the quality of these patients’ lives. Several of the patients of the U-FuN have become so enthusiastic about the success of their treatment that they have become fund-raisers together with you.

Our Unit can still not “walk” independently; it still needs your help and the help of those around you, in order to continue expanding and providing surgical treatment and pre-and postoperative care to more and more patients. Dear Lyn, this continuing need for your support is actually a clear sign of success; because that success has in turn generated the need for more resources and more staff in the U-FuN, the needs for funds are increasing, and cannot be met but by your dedication and charity, as an important complement to university and state-delivered funds. This will ensure a continuation and expansion of the service and the research at the Unit. Dear Lyn, as mother of the U-FuN, and on behalf of my colleagues, I wish to congratulate you on all your achievements, and we hope that you will be proud of your creation so far and for the many years to come. Warmest thoughts Yours, faithfully

“I was desperate. T I was chosen to be hen Professor Marwan Hariz’s 1st patient for Deep Brain Stimulation at the National Hospital. I can never say thank you loudly enough or often enough to Professor Hariz for his unexampled skill in giving back to me an ordinary life and the desire to live that life, and to the Parkinson’s Appeal for funding my surgery.” George Parsons

Terms and Conditions of Sale

Christie’s acts as agent for The Parkinson’s Appeal. Unless otherwise agreed, the sale of the Lots will result in contracts made between The Parkinson’s Appeal and the Buyer. The Buyer shall be the person with the highest bid accepted by the auctioneer. The auctioneer has the right to refuse any bid and to advance the bidding at his absolute discretion, and in the case of error or dispute, to put up an item for bidding again. Statements made by The Parkinson’s Appeal in the catalogue or made orally or in writing elsewhere, regarding the authorship, origin, date, age, size, medium, attribution, genuineness, provenance, condition or estimated selling price of any Lot are merely statements of opinion, and are not to be relied upon as statements of definitive fact. Neither Christie’s not The Parkinson’s Appeal are responsible for the correctness of any such statement nor for any other errors of description or for any faults or defects in any Lots. Catalogue illustrations are for guidance only. Buyers are responsible for satisfying themselves concerning the condition of goods and the matters referred to in the catalogue description. If a prospective Buyer gives Christie’s instructions to bid on their behalf, by using the form printed in the catalogue, Christies shall use all reasonable efforts to do so, provided these instructions are received no later than 24 hours before the sale. Bids should be placed in pounds sterling. If Christie’s receives commission bids on a particular Lot for identical amounts, at an auction these bids are the highest bids for the Lot, it will be sold to the person whose bid was received first. If prospective Buyers make arrangements with Christie’s not less than 24 hours before the sale, Christie’s shall make reasonable efforts to contact the bidders to enable them to participate by telephone, but in no circumstances will Christie’s or The Parkinson’s Appeal be liable to any prospective Buyer as a result of failure to do so.


Subject to the auctioneer’s discretion, the striking of the hammer marks the acceptance of the highest bid and the conclusion of a contract for sale between The Parkinson’s Appeal and the Buyer. Following the sale, the Buyer must provide The Parkinson’s appeal with his or her name and permanent address.

I request Christie’s, without legal obligations of any kind on its part, to bid on the following Lots up to the prices given below. All bids shall be treated as offers made on the Conditions of Sale printed in the catalogue. I understand that Christie’s shall not be held responsible for failing to execute bids. If identical commission bids are received for the same Lot, the commission bid received first by Christie’s will take precedence. I have read the terms and conditions of sale on the following page.

2. 3.


10. All Lots are to be paid for in full on the night of the sale at the Payment Desk. 11. All Lots are to be collected by the Buyer on the night of the sale, but no Lot can be taken unless it has first been paid for in full. The Buyer will not acquire title to the Lot until amounts due to The Parkinson’s Appeal have been paid in full. From the time of collection, the Lot will be entirely at the Buyer’s risk. Payment can be made in cash, credit card or cheque made payable to The Parkinson’s Appeal. A surcharge of 1.4% will be charged on all MasterCard and Visa card transactions, 0.5% on American Express transactions and 22p on Debit Card payments. These Conditions of Sale are subject to English law, which shall apply to their construction as well as to their effect. For Christie’s benefit, The Parkinson’s Appeal and the Buyer submit to the exclusive jurisdiction of the English courts.
