NEW YORK, NY -- Doyle will hold an auction of American Paintings, Furniture and Decorative Arts on Wednesday, April 18, 2018 at 10am. The sale will showcase a broad range of American paintings, including 19th century portraits, Hudson River School views, Western-themed landscapes and sculpture, fine examples of naïve painting, and still life. Also offered will be American furniture and decorative arts from the Colonial period through the Federal and Classical styles, as well as silver, ceramics, mirrors, Chinese export porcelain and rugs.

The daughter of a Quaker family with roots in the Shenandoah Valley, Mary Elizabeth Price (1877-1965) is best known for her highly decorative paintings of floral panels, often with metal leaf backgrounds. After attending the Friends Central School and the Philadelphia School of the Industrial Arts, Price studied still life painting and drawing at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts, where her works were exhibited for more than twenty years. For much of her adult life, Price lived in a cottage on the banks of the Delaware River and was an active member of the vibrant artists community in Bucks County that also included Daniel Garber and John Folinsbee. The sale offers two works depicting peonies, poppies, hollyhocks and delphiniums; they are exceptional examples, apparently conceived as a diptych (est. $60,000-100,000).

From the Estate of Eleanor Johnson is a three piece coffee set, circa 1850, by Garner & Winchester of Lexington, Kentucky. Due to strife and economic hardship during the last half of the 19th century, silver from the antebellum South is rare, and rarer still is the fact that this silver has descended through seven generations of the same family for which it was made. The coffee service is an unusual form and size, and the thistle
finial recalls the family’s Scottish heritage (est. $5,000-7,000).
