NEW YORK, NY -- Doyle held an auction in the Contemporary Collector sale category on Wednesday, March 9, 2022 at 11am. The sale presented important paintings, sculpture, prints and photography by some of the 20th and 21st centuries' most prominent artists. Encompassing examples by American, European, Latin American and Asian artists, the works spanned artistic movements from the late 1960s through today, including Color Field painting, Pop Art, Minimalism, Contemporary Realism, and Street Art.

Kenneth Noland
Accelerating beyond the Abstract Expressionist movement, pioneering Color Field painter Kenneth Noland led the Washington Color School with new techniques and revolutionary ideas. An Untitled 1984 painting revisits Noland’s classic chevron, expanding further on the form to create a shaped canvas, breaking further away from flatness into new dimensions.

Philip Taaffe
Bringing new perspectives to abstract painting, Philip Taaffe employs a variety of techniques including printmaking, collage and staining to create his vibrant, meditative paintings. From 1996, Entrance with Palms showcases Taaffe’s synthesis of Op Art intertwined with decorative filigree and forms sourced from nature.

Lawrence Weiner
Employing language as his primary material, Lawrence Weiner was a major figure in the development of Conceptual and Minimalist art. Weiner not only focused on text art, but in so doing, reconsidered the practice of creating art itself. With Materials Grouped In Such A Manner That By Virtue Of Use Some Material Passes As That Which It Is Not (In Medias Res), Weiner provides a concept which may be realized as an artwork should one wish, yet simply as text, already exists as a work of art in its current state.

Martin Wong
Created during the artist’s time in Eureka, California, Living Room with Walt and Ducks is an early example of Martin Wong’s practice of depicting his personal collectibles and accumulations. Wong would often create still life paintings of his living spaces, documenting his vast collection of treasures culled from visits to thrift stores, auctions and flea markets.
