NEW YORK, NY.- Doyle will present an auction of 20th Century Abstraction on Wednesday, October 12, 2022 at 11am. The sale showcases abstract art spanning the 1940s through the end of the century and will include paintings, drawings, sculpture and prints. From the American Abstract Expressionists, as well as several prototypical artists that predated them, the auction documents the global evolution of abstraction within and beyond the fabled New York School; including Color Field artists, hard-edge abstraction, Minimalism and much more.

The public is invited to the exhibition on view Saturday, October 8 through Monday, October 10 at Doyle, located at 175 East 87th Street in New York. View the catalogue and place bids at

Balancing Abstract Expressionism, Color Field painting, West Coast abstraction and Japanese calligraphy within his body of work, Sam Francis was one of the first Post-War American abstract painters to receive worldwide acclaim. With Krater, 1985 Francis showcases the high-key colors he is best known for, within a composition that reflects the influences that Jackson Pollock and Clyfford Still had on his work. Lot 60
Arriving in New York City during WWII after fleeing Germany, Dzubas shared a studio with Helen Frankenthaler, and would come to adopt her techniques of stain painting. From 1974, the large-scale canvas Oldenburg shows Dzubas at his best, with bold bands of color in Magna, a paint originally developed for Color Field painter Morris Louis. Lot 40

Arriving in New York City in the late 1960s, Murray was deeply influenced by Claes Oldenburg’s Pop Art sculptures, which led to her developing bright and fun shaped works on canvas and paper. Represented in the sale with a unique shaped work on paper as well as a three-dimensional multiple, Murray’s forms curl, overlap and bend, always pushing the picture plane and challenging the concepts of abstract painting. Lots 49-50

A key early figure in the New York School, Fred Mitchell was one of the original Abstract Expressionists, and instrumental in establishing the 10th Street scene of galleries and artist-run spaces. Represented by two works on canvas in the sale, Mitchell’s bold palette and classic abstract compositions are on full display. Lots 25-26
Arriving in New York City from Toyko in 1966, Kikuo Saito would quickly go on to work as a studio assistant for Kenneth Noland, Helen Frankenthaler and Larry Poons. Saito’s striking Color Field abstractions contain a dramatic energy, culled from his time as a theater director and set painter. Saito is represented in the sale by two early 80s large-scale canvases. Lots 58-59

Works prominent Latin American artists comprise lots 67-120 in the sale. Highlights include paintings and sculpture from the Collection of a Miami Gentleman and the Collection of Cuban-born artist and collector Hernán García.
