NEW YORK, NY -- Doyle's held a successful auction of Prints and Multiples on October 22, 2018 showcasing works spanning the 17th century to the present day. With competitive bidding in the saleroom, on the telephones and via the Internet, the auction totaled a strong $1,046,500, surpassing its estimate of $627,400-933,700, with an exceptional 92% sold by lot and 99% sold by value.
Highlighting the sale was a unique color screenprint from 1972, Sunset, by Andy Warhol that achieved $50,000, at the top of its $30,000-50,000 estimate. Also by Warhol was Blackglama (Judy Garland), a color screenprint from 1985, that fetched $25,000 against an estimate of $25,000-35,000.
Also featured was a color linocut by Cyril Edward Power, one of the most prominent artists associated with the Grosvenor School led by Claude Flight, who championed the 20th century linocut technique. Flight and his followers sought to depict the dynamism of city life and the speed of the machine age, and Power’s The Merry-Go-Round from circa 1930 brilliantly captures the vitality and energy of the fun-fair. Competitive bidding drove the print to $45,000, well over its $20,000-30,000 estimate.
All prices include the Buyer's Premium.
