NEW YORK, NY -- Doyle will hold an auction of Prints & Multiples on Tuesday, October 19, 2021 at 11am showcasing a wide range of works spanning the 17th century to the present day. Featured will be Old Master, Modern European, American and contemporary prints and three-dimensional editions, as well as ceramics by Pablo Picasso.
With competitive bidding, the sale totaled a successful $1,114,494, surpassing the pre-sale estimate of $593,000-900,700, with an exceptionally strong 98% sold by lot and 100% sold by value.
Highlighting the sale was a painted and partially glazed ceramic pitcher by Pablo Picasso that achieved $50,400, doubling its estimate of $25,000-35,000. Picasso became entranced with the ceramic medium after visiting the Madoura pottery factory in 1946, and over the following 25 years he created more than 3,000 works there. In Visage aux Yeux Rieurs (Face with Laughing Eyes) from 1969, Picasso explored one of his most compelling themes, the human face.
Also faring exceptionally well was a woven wool tapestry after Fernand Léger that attracted determined bidders from both sides of the Atlantic, sending the bidding soaring over the $2,000-4,000 pre-sale estimate to a stunning $28,350.
All prices include the Buyer's Premium.
