Doyle will hold an auction of American Paintings, Furniture and Decorative Arts on Wednesday, April 5, 2017 at 10am. The sale showcases a wide range of American furniture and decorative arts from the Colonial period through the Federal and Classical styles. Silver, ceramics, mirrors, Chinese export porcelain and rugs will also be offered. A special section of the sale features American paintings and Audubon, Currier & Ives and topographical prints.
Raised amid art and artists in upstate New York, Walter Launt Palmer (1854-1932) received early instruction from Frederic Edwin Church, who taught him to capture the effect of sunlight on snow. Forest Interior, an exquisite work in mixed media, shows Palmer’s remarkable skill as a colorist, the last rays of a sinking sun described with hints of orange and gold behind the stand of trees (est. $12,000-18,000).
Tiffany & Co. has been the luxury goods purveyor of choice for New York’s elite for over 150 years, and a society hostess at the turn of the century would certainly have impressed her guests with this 18 kt. Gold demitasse service for twelve. It is offered together with a set of twelve George III silvergilt teaspoons (est. $40,000-60,000).
