  • Auction of Prints & Multiples on October 22, 2018

NEW YORK, NY -- Doyle's auction of Prints and Multiples on Monday, October 22, 2018 at 10am will offer works spanning the 17th century to the present day. Among the Old Master prints are several moderately priced Rembrandt etchings, including a fine impression of Jan Asselyn, Painter, from circa 1647 and a very good impression of Lucas Cranach’s The Penance of St. John Chrysostom, an engraving from 1509.

Modern European works are highlighted by a color linocut by Cyril Edward Power, one of the most prominent artists associated with the Grosvenor School led by Claude Flight, who championed the 20th century linocut technique. Flight and his followers sought to depict the dynamism of city life and the speed of the machine age, and Power’s The Merry-Go-Round from circa 1930 brilliantly captures the vitality and energy of the fun-fair. 

The sale features many fine works by School of Paris artists, including Marc Chagall, Bouquet a la Tour Eiffel, color lithograph from 1958; a scarce impression of Pablo Picasso, Francoise, lithograph from 1946; Joan Miro, La Femme Arborescente, color etching and aquatint, 1974 and numerous Picasso ceramic plates and pitchers, including Visage en Gros Relief (Face in Thick Relief) from 1959. The human face was one of Picasso’s most popular subjects, and in this ceramic work Picasso employed the same technique he would when creating an etching or drypoint. In this case, Picasso used an unconventional tool, likely a kitchen knife, to cut into a plaster mold, from which impressions could be taken to create editions.

American prints include rare etchings by Whistler, Melon Shop, Houdsditch, 1887; Winslow Homer, Mending the Tears, 1888; and Childe Hassam, Washington’s Birthday, Fifth Avenue and 23rd Street, 1916 and Girl in a Modern Gown, 1922.. An impression of Gerald Leslie Brockhurst’s most sought-after etching, Adolescence, from 1932, is also featured, as well as works by George Bellows, Thomas Hart Benton, Rockwell Kent, John Marin, Reginald Marsh and John Sloan. 

Several works by Warhol highlight the Contemporary prints offered, including Sunset, a unique color screenprint from 1972, and Blackglama (Judy Garland), color screenprint, 1985. Also featured are Roy Lichtenstein, Inaugural Print, color screenprint, 1977; Jasper Johns, Usuyuki, color screenprint, 1980; Francis Bacon, Study for Bullfight No. 1, color lithograph, 1990; Yayoi Kusama, Pumpkin (White T), screenprint, 1992; Wayne Thiebaud, Five Flavors, color lithograph, 2003; and works by Sam Francis, Alex Katz, David Hockney, Alex Katz, Jeff Koons, Fairfield Porter, Robert Rauschenberg, Sean Scully, David Smith, among others.
