NEW YORK, NY -- Doyle's auction on January 24, 2023 saw strong prices for Old Master & 19th Century Paintings & Drawings spanning the Italian Renaissance through the 19th century. The sale showcased a wide range of landscapes, still lifes, portraits and religious subjects.
Highlighting the sale was a marvelous portrait by Sir Henry Raeburn, RA, RSA (1756-1823) of Commander John Henry Cochrane, RN, that achieved $20,160, more double its $5,000-8,000 estimate. Raeburn is today considered the best of the Scottish portraitists working at the turn of the 19th century. The likeness of Commander John Henry Cochrane of the Royal Navy embodies all of the characteristics of his style: a carefully studied realism, dramatic lighting effects and a forceful evocation of what appears to have been the commander’s proud and confident character.
Offered together with the Old Master & 19th Century Paintings & Drawings were English & Continental Furniture, Silver & Decorative Arts (Read More). With competitive international bidding, the Old Masters far surpassed expectations reflecting continued strength in this sector of the art market.
