NEW YORK, NY -- On Wednesday, March 27, 2018 at 10am, Doyle will hold an auction of American Paintings, Furniture & Decorative Arts. The sale showcases 18th and 19th century American furniture and decorative arts, including silver, ceramics, mirrors, folk art, Chinese Export porcelain and rugs. This auction category is Doyle’s premier venue for 19th and early 20th century American paintings, with the current sale showcasing over 90 examples. Included are Hudson River School landscapes, Western and Regional art, still lifes, portraits, nautical scenes and Folk paintings.
In his day Edward Moran (1829-1901) was known as one of America’s premier Marine painters. He studied in Philadelphia under James Hamilton. Both artists took inspiration from the works of J. M. W. Turner who’s influence can be seen in the dramatic lighting of Fishing Boats (est. $18,000-25,000).
An American Aesthetic Movement table was made in the early 1870s by Herter Brothers in New York. Similar in form to an example in the Cleveland Museum of Art, the table combines Japanese-inspired structure and ornament with a fine floral marquetry top probably imported from Paris (est. $12,000-20,000).
In 1815, Samuel Kirk opened what has become America’s oldest silversmith. The firm created a style of intricate floral repoussé, known as “Baltimore Silver,” an early example of which is an 1828 tea service from a Connecticut Collector that incorporates birds and butterflies into the flowers and foliage (est. $7,000-10,000).
