NEW YORK, NY -- International competition drove strong results at Doyle's auction of Old Master & 19th Century Paintings, Drawings & Prints on January 25, 2024. The sale showcased a wide range of works including landscapes, still lifes, portraits and religious subjects by European artists from the Renaissance through the 19th century.

Wojciech Kossak (1856-1942) was a member of a celebrated Polish family of artists who specialized in equestrian subjects and scenes from military history. The sale featured a remarkable work depicting an historic victory of the fabled German Black Hussars over a Russian artillery unit, probably during the Seven Years’ War. Competitive bidding drove this painting to $28,800, more than doubling its estimate.

François Boucher‘s paintings and drawings are prized for their idyllic evocations of the French rococo style. Achieving an exceptional $25,600 was a lovely chalk drawing of a lady holding a birdcage. It was clearly executed by an artist who knew Boucher's style intimately, probably a member of his immediate circle.
