NEW YORK, NY.- Doyle’s auction of Impressionist & Modern Art on Wednesday, May 12 at 11am will showcase fine European and American paintings, drawings and sculpture from the late 19th and early 20th centuries. The offerings will span Academic and Barbizon art through Impressionism and Post-Impressionism to German Expressionism and early Modernism.

The public is invited to the exhibition on view May 8-10 at Doyle, located at 175 East 87th Street in New York. The catalogue may be viewed online at

The beloved Surrealist Arshile Gorky is often referenced for his great influence on the Abstract Expressionist movement that would begin roughly at the time of his untimely death. From 1928, a still life painting echoes prototypical hallmarks the AbEx artists would embrace: a lush color palette, and a loose, gestural style (est. $50,000-70,000).

Considered one of Norway's most important artists of the late 19th century, Frits Thaulow painted beautifully executed Impressionistic depictions of his homeland and regions in and around France. Examples of his work may be seen in prestigious museums and private collections, including 37 works in The National Gallery of Norway. Originally intended for the Paris Salon in 1901, On the Canal from the town Oudenaarde instead made its way to the VIII International Art Exhibition Munich in 1901 (est. $50,000-70,000).

Russian artist Konstantin Andreevich Somov's Study of Trees from 1923 is little gem of a painting, with its jewel-toned emerald greens set against rust-colored buildings reflected softly in the ripples of a river. He is often praised by critics for his refined taste, rich palette and technical superiority (est. $20,000-30,000).

The German Expressionist painter Max Pechstein found himself at odds with many of his peers as his work evolved, and later was deemed a Degenerate artist by the Third Reich. A watercolor and pencil work on paper from 1922, Fruhling II, captures the unique balance of his post-Expressionist work; black, angular trees, struck crookedly against a vibrant background (est. $20,000-30,000).

A delicate work on paper by one of the great Modern artists of the 20th century, Woman at the Piano possibly depicts Henriette Darricarrère, who was Henri Matisse’s most preferred model from roughly 1920-1927. A musician and ballerina, Darricarrère was depicted serenely playing her piano in several of Matisse’s works of the period (est. $20,000-30,000).

One of the first Folk artists to receive national recognition, Mississippi artist Theora Hamblett began painting after retiring from her work as a seamstress in her 50s. From 1958, A Wish, A Vision and Their Fulfillment, is a bright, lyrical work; synonymous with her series of paintings depicting the chicken farm and rural scenes of her childhood (est. $15,000-20,000).

Honore Daumier's Study for Joueurs de Domino (Les Trois Joueurs) perfectly illustrates the artist's ability to capture, with just a few strokes of his pen, the true character of his subjects. A profoundly original and talented artist, Daumier created caustically witty and humorous depictions of 19th century France that held a mirror to its soul and made him the best-known caricaturist and social commentor of his day (est. $6,000-9,000).
