NEW YORK, NY -- Following the successful inaugural sale in the new category of Fine Modern Art last Fall, Doyle will hold a second auction in this category on Wednesday, March 6, 2019 at 10am. Showcasing paintings, drawings, sculpture and fine prints with moderate estimates, this new sale category generated excitement among seasoned collectors and new buyers alike.
Paul Wonner (1920-2008) was included in the exhibition, Contemporary Bay Area Figurative Painting, at the Oakland Museum of California in 1957, together with fellow artists Richard Diebenkorn and Theophilus Brown. Having studios in close proximity, the three would gather together for life-study sessions. The Model Before a Mirror from 1962 is a prime example of Wonner’s early work, executed in a realist style with broad expressive brushstrokes and an inventive use of color (est. $2,000-3,000).
From the Estate of a Gentleman is a watercolor by British artist Malcolm Morley (1931-2018), who moved to New York in the late 1950s. Two Leopards expresses the gestural Neo-Expressionist style of his work in the late 1970s into the 1980s (est. $3,000-5,000).
