Property of Wendy Vanderbilt Lehman and Alfred G. Vanderbilt highlight Doyle auction
James Lynwood Palmer (British, 1868-1941), Alfred Gwynne Vanderbilt Arriving At Brighton, Driving his Coach "Venture," 1909. Property of Alfred G. Vanderbilt. Est. $15,000-25,000.

NEW YORK, NY.- On Wednesday, May 23 at 10am EDT, Doyle will hold an auction of English and Continental Furniture and Decorative Arts, including Old Master Paintings and Drawings. The sale presents a broad selection of furniture and decorations, including Georgian silver, porcelain, mirrors, clocks, chandeliers, tapestries and rugs. Old Master paintings and drawings offer landscapes, still lifes, portraits and religious subjects by European artists from the Renaissance to the 19th century.

A special section of the sale is devoted to property from the Estate of Wendy Vanderbilt Lehman. Wendy was born in California to Manuela Hudson and Alfred Gwynne Vanderbilt, Jr. (1912-1999), a pioneer in thoroughbred racing, whose father had gone down on the Lusitania. She married Orin Lehman, New York State’s longest-serving commissioner of Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation and a great-grandson of Mayer Lehman, a founder of the Lehman Brothers investment firm. Property from the Estate of Wendy Vanderbilt Lehman offers furniture and decorations from Wendy’s elegant Manhattan apartment and her country house in Water Mill, New York, in addition to her collection of colorful fashion jewelry by Kenneth Jay Lane and Iradj Moini.

Property of Alfred G. Vanderbilt features several objects with provenance of his grandfather, Alfred Gwynne Vanderbilt (1877-1915), and father, Alfred G. Vanderbilt, Jr. Featured in the sale is the original silver trophy won at the 1953 Preakness Stakes by Alfred G. Vanderbilt, Jr.’s legendary horse, Native Dancer, who won 21 of his 22 races and sired numerous later champions. The trophy is truly one of the most compelling treasures of thoroughbred racing (est. $20,000-30,000). Also noteworthy is a large scale painting by British artist James Lynwood Palmer depicting Alfred Gwynne Vanderbilt Arriving At Brighton, Driving his Coach "Venture" from 1909 (est. $15,000-25,000).

Property from the Estates of Lili and Norman Israel features an extensive collection of elegant Continental furniture and decorations. Highlighting the furniture is a Napoleon III gilt-bronze-mounted and cut brass-inlaid tortoiseshell and ebony 'Boulle' marquetry bureau plat in the Louis XIV Style by Mathieu Befort (1813-1880), dit Befort Jeune (est. $15,000-25,000). Decorations feature a pair of gilt-bronze mounted Chinese turquoise glazed porcelain Fu Lions (est. $7,000-10,000). Certain to attract attention is a Northern European Neoclassical gilt-metal, blue and clear glass ten-light chandelier (est. $10,000-15,000).

Featured among the Old Master paintings are two exceptional 18th century views of the Thames inspired by the work of Canaletto. Two works from the Circle of Thomas Scott (1702-1772) depict London: The Thames from Somerset House Terrace towards Westminster and The Thames at Lambeth (est. each $7,000-10,000).

A large-scale work by William Pratt and dated 1750 is a close replica of a 1747 painting in the collection of the National Maritime Museum in Greenwich, England, entitled The ‘St. Albans’ Floated out at Deptford by John Cleveley the Elder. Unusual for copies, it is larger than the original, which was painted in 1747. William Pratt's style and technique here are so close to Cleveley's that it seems likely that he learned his art in that master's studio (est. $8,000-12,000).

The public is invited to the exhibition on view from Saturday, May 19 through Monday, May 21. Doyle is located at 175 East 87th Street in Manhattan.
