Affordable fine paintings auction at Doyle on October 15

NEW YORK, NY.- Doyle's auction of Fine Paintings on Tuesday, October 15 at 10am will continue the success of this new auction category of affordable works of art. Showcased will be a wide range of traditional, academic and early Modern paintings, providing exciting opportunities for seasoned buyers and new collectors alike.

In his later years, French artist Bernard Boutet de Monvel (1881-1949) became a favorite portraitist for the international elite, among them William K. Vanderbilt, Benda Frasier and Millicent Rogers. In his depiction of an Allee of Trees, near Nemours, where he spent part of his youth, we can observe his early use of rectilinear themes that would flavor his Art Deco illustrations (est. $7,000-9,000).

Born on Staten Island, Edward Martin Taber (1863-1896) studied briefly under Abbott Thayer and exhibited at the Society of American Artists. Due to poor health, he left the city for Stowe, Vermont in his 20s, where his paintings focused on capturing the shifting light and atmospheric conditions of the landscape. Property of The Metropolitan Museum of Art, a chilly view of Mount Mansfield depicts one of the artist’s favorite subjects (est. $3,000-5,000).

From the Estate of David Follett is a view of Invincible Class Battlecruisers at Dawn by British artist Montague Dawson (1890-1973). Comprising three sister ships all completed in 1908, the Invincible Class Battlecruisers were named Indomitable, Inflexible and Invincible and were among the fastest ships in the fleet. The painting shows them around 1909 before they had their fore funnels raised (est. $5,000-7,000).

The Estate of a Palm Beach Heiress offers a selection of colorful works by Orville Bulman (1904-1978), a relatively self-taught artist from Grand Rapids Michigan. Bulman defied his family's wishes of taking over the family business to devote himself to art. During an extended stay in Haiti, he was so inspired by the people and culture of the island nation that they were to become his muse. He settled in Palm Beach where his brightly hued canvases, full of life, whimsy and the magic of Haiti were celebrated by local collectors (est. range $3,000-7,000).

Often considered a social realist, Kyra Markham (1891-1967) imbues her work with a sense of drama and dreamlike quality informed by her years in the theater. Her early career as an actress was supplemented by her work as a muralist and illustrator. In the 1930s, she studied art under Alexander Abels at the Arts Students League and later worked for the Federal Arts Project documenting American life. The upcoming sale offers two fine examples of her work, a dreamlike view of a Barn at Sunset (est. $1,200-1,800) and Edge of a Wood from 1934 (est. $1,500-2,500).

The sale also features works by such artists as David Burliuk, Marcel Dyf, Jean Fautrier, Walt (Walter) Francis Kuhn, Henri Lebasque, Reginald Marsh, Maxime Maufra, Leopold Gould Seyffert, Stephen Scott Young and William Zorach.

Doyle will present The Marian Sulzberger Heiskell and Andrew Heiskell Collection in select auctions throughout the Fall season. A civic leader and philanthropist, Marian championed outdoor community spaces across New York and led a nonprofit organization responsible for restoring the 42nd Street theatres. For 34 years, she worked as a Director of The New York Times, where her grandfather, father, husband, brother, nephew and grand-nephew served as successive publishers. In 1965, Marian married Andrew Heiskell, the Chairman of Time Inc., whose philanthropies included the New York Public Library. Property from the Collection in the October 15 sale comprises a pair of gouaches by French artist Ernest Pierre Guerin. Upcoming auctions offer works by Carl Frederick Frieseke, Helen Frankenthaler, Pierre Eugene Montezin, Arnoldo Pomodoro and others on November 6.

The public is invited to the exhibition on view from Friday, October 11 through Sunday, October 13. Doyle is located at 175 East 87th Street in Manhattan. The catalogue is available online at
