NEW YORK, NY -- Doyle's February 15, 2023 sale in the popular Fine Art auction category showcased affordable paintings, prints and sculpture spanning the Post-War years to the present day. Offerings included a wide range of works by established and emerging artists. Exciting opportunities abound in this popular category for seasoned buyers and new collectors alike!

Highlighting the sale was Orville Bulman's Les Nouveaux Familles from 1967 that realized a strong $63,000, exceeding its estimate of $30,000-50,000. An example of Bulman's later work, the painting reflects the influence of Henri Rousseau's iconic tropical landscapes. While Rousseau’s jungle scenes can sometimes appear imposing, Bulman retains the charming, whimsical and illustrative nature seen in Rousseau’s best examples. Living in Point Manalapan near Palm Beach, Bulman drew from his native tropical landscape, while populating his scenes with fantastical tribesmen and exotic animals

Strong prices were also achieved for works by Elie Nadelman, Kurt Seligmann, Hunt Slonem and Olbram Zoubek, among many others.
