Ed Ruscha highlights Doyle's Auction of Prints & Multiples on May 1
Ed Ruscha (b. 1937), Cheese Mold Standard With Olive, Color screenprint, 1969, signed, dated and numbered 31/150, 19 1/2 x 37 inches. Estimate: $50,000-70,000

NEW YORK, NY.- Doyle’s auction on Monday, May 1 at 10am showcases a wide selection of Prints and Multiples spanning the 17th through 21st centuries. The sale offers fine examples of Old Master prints, Modern European prints, American prints and works by Contemporary artists. Also featured is a group of ceramics by Pablo Picasso.

Highlighting the sale is Cheese Mold Standard with Olive, one of Ed Ruscha’s (b. 1937) most iconic images. Based on a photograph he made traveling from Los Angeles to his family home in Oklahoma City, Ruscha was drawn to the Standard Station’s “zoom architecture.” He transformed this ordinary subject into a monumental image in oil and screenprint, foreshortening the composition with his signature plunging diagonal line and drawing the viewer’s eye to the Standard text with its layers of meanings (est. $50,000-70,000).

Le Caverne des Nymphes is one of six works by Marc Chagall (1887-1985) to be offered from one of his most important series, Daphnis et Chloé. In 1956 Chagall’s publisher and friend Tériade commissioned him to illustrate the ancient Greek pastoral love story. While on honeymoon in Greece, Chagall made preparatory studies for the 42 color lithographs. Chagall used 20-30 layers of vibrant color for each image to create whimsical works in the rich, painterly style for which he is well-known (est. $15,000-25,000).

The still life was a theme Roy Lichtenstein (1923-1997) explored throughout his career. In Still Life with Red Jar, a color screenprint from 1994, he depicts a classic composition of fruit and a jar on a table using his distinctive enlarged halftone dots, appearing to pay homage both to 17th century Dutch still life paintings and 20th century comic strips and advertising (est. $10,000-15,000).

Creating works of art in ceramic became an enduring passion of Pablo Picasso after visiting George and Suzanne Ramié at their Madoura pottery factory in the South of France in 1946. The large ceramic plate, Jacqueline au Chevalet, from 1956, depicts his most painted subject, his second wife Jacqueline, whom he met at Madoura in 1953 (est. $10,000-15,000).

Other artists represented in the sale include Andy Warhol, Lucian Freud, Roy Lichtenstein, Robert Rauschenberg, William Kentridge, Joan Miró, Mary Cassatt and James Whistler

The public is invited to the exhibition on view from April 28 - 30. Doyle is located at 175 East 87th Street in Manhattan. The catalogue is available online at
