NEW YORK, NY -- Doyle held a successful auction of American Paintings & Prints on April 10, 2024 that witnessed competitive bidding drive the sale total beyond expectations. This semiannual sale was Doyle’s premier venue for 19th and early 20th century American paintings, including Hudson River School landscapes, Western and Regional art, nautical scenes, still lifes and portraits. Highlights included works by John George Brown, Luigi Lucioni, Don Troiani and Andrew Newell Wyeth, among many others.

Luigi Lucioni
Highlighting the sale was an elegant self-portrait by Luigi Lucioni (1900-1988) from 1933 that soared past its $8,000-12,000 estimate to achieve $102,100. The Italian-born Lucioni arrived in New York as a boy and studied at the Cooper Union, followed by the National Academy of Design. He won a Tiffany Foundation scholarship to study art in Italy, which shaped his art with classical realism.

Andrew Newell Wyeth
American realist painter Andrew Newell Wyeth (1917–2009) is best known for his depictions of rural life and landscapes. The son of famed illustrator N.C. Wyeth, Andrew Wyeth drew inspiration from the people, buildings and surrounding environs of his hometown of Chadds Ford, Pennsylvania, and his country house in Cushing, Maine. Evoking solitude and contemplation, his works capture the quintessence of the American countryside. Featured in the sale were a watercolor from 1949, Wind Machine (also known as The Windmaker) that realized $64,000, and Chestnut Stump, a watercolor from 1955 that sold for $51,200, surpassing its $25,000-35,000 estimate.
