NEW YORK, NY -- Doyle’s auction of Impressionist & Modern Art on Tuesday, May 14, 2019 at 11am will showcase European and American paintings, drawings and sculpture from the late 19th and early 20th centuries. The offerings range from Academic and Barbizon art through Impressionism and Post-Impressionism to German Expressionism and early Modernism.

Maxfield Parrish (1870-1966) was one of America’s finest and most prolific illustrators, with a successful career spanning over fifty years. Reproduced as the cover for the 1922 Christmas issue of Life magazine, a festive picture depicts three costumed servers presenting the beginnings of a holiday meal in gleaming silver dishes (est. $150,000-250,000).

Henry Moret (1856-1913) was one of a group of painters associated with the School of Pont-Aven in Brittany, the most famous of which was Paul Gauguin. When Gauguin left in 1891, Moret developed his unique bold style, focusing on the craggy landscape and turbulent seas surrounding Brittany, such as a depiction of the Bay of Douarnenez from the Gertrude D. Davis Trust (est. $75,000-125,000).

The landscapes of Jean-Baptiste-Camille Corot (1796-1875) have been appreciated from the artist’s time to the present day for their harmonious integration of classical structure with subtle effects of light and color. In Le Soir dans la campagne au bord de l’eau, painted when the artist was nearly 80 years old, we see these qualities brought together in an expressive evocation of sunset over a country lake (est. $60,000-80,000).

Boris Anisfeld (1878–1973) produced haunting stage and costume designs for Diaghilev’s Ballet Russes. In 1917 he left Russia for the United States, where he continued his stage designs for the Metropolitan Opera. When he taught at the Art Institute of Chicago, beginning in the 1920s, Anisfeld and his family spent summers in New Mexico and Colorado, where a charming painting in the sale of children and their dog was certainly painted (est. $20,000-30,000).

Emma Fordyce MacRae (1887-1974) attended the Art Students League where she trained under Frank Vincent DuMond, Kenneth Hayes Miller, and later with John Sloan. She was a member of the National Association of Women Artists. Central Park was one of her favorite themes, an example of which is a bright depiction of the zoo in Spring (est. $10,000-15,000).
