  • Auction of Prints & Multiples on April 30, 2019 at 10am
  • Showcasing Old Master, Modern European, American and Contemporary Prints
  • Including a Selection of Ceramics by Pablo Picasso

NEW YORK, NY -- Doyle’s auction on Tuesday, April 30, 2019 at 10am showcases a wide selection of Prints and Multiples spanning the 17th through 21st centuries. The sale offers fine examples of Old Master prints, Modern European prints, American prints and works by Contemporary artists. Also featured are ceramics by Pablo Picasso.

Pablo Picasso's (1881-1973) prodigious printmaking aptly illustrates the artist’s relentless pushing of artistic boundaries. He both elevated and revolutionized the linocut relief technique, using one “reductive” rather than multiple blocks, of which La Pique from 1959 is a fine example. Picasso developed a love of bullfights, attending them as a child in Spain, and they became a favorite theme in his art (est. $30,000-40,000).

Picasso became entranced with the ceramic medium after visiting the Madoura pottery factory in 1946, and over the following 25 years he created more than 3,000 works there. In Visage aux Cheveux Bouclé (Curly-haired Face), 1968-69, from the Estate of Peter Mayer, Picasso explored one of his most compelling themes, the human face (est. $6,000-8,000).

British artist Bridget Riley (b. 1931) is one of the foremost proponents of Op Art. Created one year before the artist was featured in the seminal 1965 exhibition, The Responsive Eye, at the Museum of Modern Art, the screenprint Untitled (Based on a Blaze) is a fine example of Riley’s exploration of optical illusions suggesting movement (est. $8,000-12,000).
