NEW YORK, NY -- Doyle's auction on May 21, 2024 saw exceptional results for Old Master & 19th Century Paintings, Drawings & Prints. Bidders on both sides of the Atlantic vied for landscapes, nautical paintings, still lifes, portraits and religious subjects by European artists from the Renaissance through the 19th century.

Simon Jacobsz de Vlieger - Sold for $419,600
Highlighting the sale was Dutch artist Simon Jacobsz de Vlieger’s view of A Coastal Landscape with Dutch Frigates Exchanging Salutes that soared past its estimate of $60,000-80,000 to achieve a stunning $419,600. Simon Jacobsz de Vlieger (1601-1653) was one of the most important and influential Dutch marine painters of the 17th century. This sweeping view of ships off the coast of Holland, painted in the late 1640s, is a classic example of his late style, which emphasized the atmospheric effects of water and sky along the North Sea.

Venetian Vedute & the Grand Tour
Another noteworthy offering was A View of the Piazza San Marco, Looking East toward the Basilica attributed to Apollonio Domenichini (The Master of the Langmatt Foundation Views). Read Essay
