NEW YORK, NY -- Doyle held a successful auction of Latin American Art on October 27, 2021. The sale comprised two sections, beginning with paintings, drawings, prints and sculpture by prominent Latin American artists of the 20th century, followed by Post-War & Contemporary Art by American, European and Asian artists.

With competitive international bidding, the sale totaled a robust $1,535,761 against a pre-sale estimate of $1,041,400-1,700,100 with a strong 92% sold by lot and 100% sold by value.

Highlighting the Latin American works was Sexion, an abstraction from 1968 by Chilean artist Roberto Matta (1911-2002) that achieved $47,250, at the high end of its $30,000-50,000 estimate. A floral still life by Puerto Rican artist Angel Botello (1913-1986) from the Estate of Dr. Alex Eliseo Asencio soared over its estimate of $4,000-6,000 to realize $20,160. From the same estate was an enchanting work from 1945 by Cuban artist Victor Manuel (1897-1969), Niña con Flor, that sold for $18,900, surpassing its estimate of $10,000-15,000.
