AUCTION PREVIEW FALL 2017


Welcome to Doyle

Doyle Chairman/CEO Kathleen M. Doyle; Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices New York Properties President Ellie Johnson; Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices New England, New York and Westchester Properties CEO Candace Adams; Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices New Jersey Properties COO Steve Janett; and Doyle Vice Chairman Laura Doyle celebrate the launch of Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices New York Properties, April 2017.

On our cover: The Night-Blowing Cereus from The Temple of Flora, [1799]-1807, author and publisher Robert Thornton. This copy has thirty superb floral plates and all of the five frontispieces in colored state. The publication of The Temple of Flora ruined Thornton, but the extravagance that financially doomed the project resulted in the greatest of all English flower books. Est. $60,000-80,000.

It is an exciting Fall season at Doyle opening our minds to cultures throughout the world!

ASIAN WORKS OF ART Highlighting the auction is a Private Minneapolis Collection rich in Chinese jades and Khmer and Sino-Tibetan bronzes (see page 12). This Chinese jade peach-shaped box is notable for its construction utilizing naturalistically carved branches to skillfully interlock both halves. The peach (shoutao) is the fruit of immortality, and the bat (fu) is a pun for blessings. Together they represent a wish to possess both blessings and immortality. Est. $20,000-30,000 For Chinese artist Qi Baishi (1864-1957), the morning glory was a favorite subject and source of artistic inspiration. In this painting, he depicts a cluster of morning glories in full bloom with their buds, tendrils and leaves entwined along a stretch of bamboo fence. The morning glories are portrayed in an especially unconstrained and spontaneous manner, reflective of his later work. Est. $20,000-30,000. Asian Works of Art / Sept 11

Est. $20,000-30,000. Fine Jewelry – Beverly Hills / Nov 13

Doyle GLAMOROUS GREENS

The exceptional emeralds in these two elegant brooches display the prized deep green color concentration of Colombian emeralds, which are always highly sought after, and even more so at the moment.

Gracing the wrists of the world’s most glamorous women, Jean Schlumbergers’ paillonné enamel bracelets for Tiffany & Co. were introduced in 1962.

ART AT DOYLE

John Frederick Kensett (1816-1872), a member of the second generation of the Hudson River School, was a master of evocative coastal landscapes. This gemlike view of figures gazing out to sea near a promontory, with its poetic juxtaposition of rugged headland and shimmering water, is a signature example of his mature style. The Estate of Anne H. and John K. Howat. Est. $80,000-130,000. American Paintings / Oct 4

commedia dell’arte, an interest that he shared with Picasso and other artists and poets of their circle. The Estate of Elsie Adler. Est. $150,000250,000. Impressionist & Modern Art / Nov 15

Jean-Jacques Bachelier (1724–1806) excelled at portraying the beloved pets of the 18th century French nobility. This engaging picture of two pugs, which shows the dogs at play rather than formally posed – the convention earlier in the century – allows us to see just how appealing his animal portraits could be. Est. $8,00012,000. Old Master Paintings / Oct 25

Guy Pène du Bois (1884-1958) was a keen observer of urban life in the 1920s. Bus Top, with its telling description of two fashionable ladies on the upper deck of a bus, exemplifies the Art Deco elegance of his best work. The Collection of Willa Kim and William Pène du Bois. Est. $80,000-120,000. Impressionist & Modern Art / Nov 15

The Polish Expressionist Sigmund Menkes (1896-1986) exhibited with a group of fellow Eastern European artists in Paris before settling in New York in 1935. This entrancing image of a young woman dressing her hair before a mirror exemplifies his unique merging of energetic contours and sensuous color. The Estate of Rhoda Blumberg. Est. $10,000-15,000. Post-War & Contemporary Art / Nov 15 OPPOSITE Jean Metzinger (1883-1956) was an important figure in the early Cubist movement, not only as a painter but also as a theorist for the group. His Arlequin, a classic essay in fragmented form, exhibits his fascination with the 4

One of Indonesia’s greatest Modernist painters, Affandi (1907-1990) employed an Expressionist style to depict the vividness he saw in the figures and everyday life of his culture. Affandi had an aversion to using brushes, and instead applied paint directly from its tube and smeared it across the canvas with his hand – a practice that required furious energy. Property from a New York Estate. Est. $100,000-150,000. Post-War & Contemporary Art / Nov 15

Luis Gispert’s (b. 1972) Gucci Gloom (detail), from his Decepción series of photographs, plays with the juxtaposition of unlikely brand labelled car interiors looking out on equally unlikely vistas. The image has its genesis in Gispert’s discovery of a low-rider Escalade truck outfitted in counterfeit Louis Vuitton, and is a witty comment on the more bizarre extremes of aspirational culture. Est. $12,000-18,000. Photographs / Dec 14 OPPOSITE Les Nymphéas, a color linocut, woodcut, lithograph and screenprint from 1993, is one of several works by Roy Lichtenstein (1923-1997) that were inspired by Claude Monet’s water lily paintings. Through the use of bright rich colors and simplified forms, Ben-Day dots and stripes,

Lichtenstein translates the Impressionist master’s theme into his own distinctive Pop art style. Est. $20,000-30,000. Prints & Multiples / Nov 1 An early work on paper by Sean Scully (b. 1945) captures a period of more precise lines and forms than his later, more fluid blocks of color. Looking at Minimalism as well as Color Field painters, Scully developed a signature style of geometric abstraction that eschewed Hard-Edge in favor of soft painterly forms more akin to Mark Rothko. Est. $7,000-9,000. DoyleNEXT Online-Only on Artsy / November A leading Malaysian artist of the 20th century, Ibrahim Hussein (1936-2009) studied art in Singapore and London, but chose to establish his

art and teaching career in his homeland. He was the first artist from Malaysia to be shown at the Venice Biennale. Created in 1964, Little Commotion is a playful abstraction improvised over a printed magazine page. Est. $1,000-1,500. Doyle+Design / Nov 21 Deborah Kass’ (b. 1952) Jewish Jackie series takes on Andy Warhol’s famed portraits of Jacqueline Kennedy and replaces them with Barbra Streisand, a figure the artist has identified with throughout her life. By co-opting Warhol’s celebrity portraits, Kass creates a platform to represent a largerthan-life female celebrity, challenging mainstream ideas on beauty and status. Est. $20,000-40,000. Post-War & Contemporary Art / Nov 15 7

An American color-plate rarity and one of just eight copies known of this issue, the 1845 New York edition of George Catlin’s North American Indian Portfolio was pirated from the English edition by New York lithographer James Ackerman, whose aim was to garner recognition for American artists and to encourage continuing the production of such works on native soil. Est. $100,000-200,000. Rare Books, Autographs & Maps / Auction Nov 7 United States Peace dollars of 1921 to 1935 were issued without Congressional sanction under the terms of the Pittman Act and were considered commemorative coins, with a relatively small amount of 1,939,000 produced for this date. Most examples are found in lower grades, so this Mint State 66 is a rare exception. Est. $1,500-2,000. Coins, Bank Notes & Postage Stamps / Auction Nov 7 British surveyor John Montressor’s A Plan of the City of New-York was produced in secret for the purpose of mounting defenses of British strongholds as the Stamp Act Riots engulfed New York. The 1767 first edition is quite scarce and precedes the better known “Ratzer Plan” of the city by two years. Property of a New York Collector. Est. $8,00012,000. Rare Books, Autographs & Maps / Auction Nov 7

The United States 1857 Perforated issues are highly collectible, especially the very rare Type 1a. Differentiated by the loss of detail on the top ornaments and outer lines, this elusive stamp is only found on the bottom rows of Plate 4. Mortimer Neinken, author of The United States One Cent Stamps of 1851 to 1861, states that this anomaly affected only 18 positions on the printing of 200 stamps. Est. $3,000-5,000. Coins, Bank Notes & Postage Stamps / Auction Nov 7 Military Payment Certificates were issued to U.S. military and certain civilian personnel from the end of World War II to 1973 for the purpose of minimizing black market trafficking in occupied areas and around military establishments. This $20 note of 1972 is of exceptional quality and rarity, as most were either lost or destroyed. Est. $8001,200. Coins, Bank Notes & Postage Stamps / Auction Nov 7 William Henry Fox Talbot’s Articles of China, 1844, is a salted paper print from a calotype paper negative, extracted from the first part of The Pencil of Nature. Generally considered the first commercially published book to contain photographs, its images were intended to show how the new process could be used, in this case to illustrate a collection catalogue. Est. $8,000-12,000. Photographs & Photobooks / Auction Dec 14

Enigma Machine

ijzxfedcmlvym

A group of Korean War-era memorabilia of General B.M. Bryan, Commander of 24th Infantry Division Korea, features a stylized Key to The City of Seoul presented to him by Mayor Tai Sun Kim, with a handwritten note of appreciation. The lot also includes two Medals, two Zippo lighters with company emblems, and other memorabilia. Est. $5001,000. Coins, Bank Notes & Postage Stamps / Auction Nov 7

The Enigma 1 machine was used by the German Wehrmacht and Luftwaffe during World War II to encode orders and instructions, using a complex system of rotors and patch cables. The German High Command believed the Enigma cipher to be totally secure; British cryptographers at Bletchley Park under Alan Turing were able to break it, giving Britain and its allies a huge military advantage that may have shortened the War by two years. Property from a Private Minneapolis Collection. Est. $80,000-120,000. Rare Books, Autographs & Maps / Auction Nov 7

An early letter from George Washington to his brother-in-law Burwell Bassett is dated 9 August 1759, just 8 months into his first year of marriage to Martha Custis. The letter regards the procurement of items for Mount Vernon and other matters, mentioning Mrs. Washington twice in addition to other notable Virginians of the period associated with Washington, including William Mercer, Henry Churchill and Colonel George William Fairfax. Est. $15,000-20,000. Rare Books, Autographs & Maps / Auction Nov 7

This refined clock case with elliptical inlays and a circular panel in the base is typical of fine New Jersey clocks of the early 19th century. The most prominent makers include Aaron , Joachim Hill and John Scudder. Est. $4,0006,000. American Paintings, Furniture & Decorative Arts / Oct 4 Furniture by George Nakashima (1905-1990) is renowned for its organic forms that incorporate the natural unfinished edge of the wood plank, as seen in these chests of drawers. Often chosen in consultation with his clients, the wood retains the expressiveness found in the graining and imperfections of each plank. Est. each $30,000-50,000. Doyle+Design / Nov 21 This George III mother-of-pearl inlaid mahogany tea chest, circa 1760, is fitted with two tea canisters and a sugar canister. These unusual mother-of-pearl-sided canisters with their engraved decoration relate to several known examples, including two George III ‘aventurine’ tea chests, one by the London goldsmith James Cox (c.1723-1800), with almost identical canisters. The country of origin of the engraved mother-of-pearl panels seems to be unknown. Est. $4,000-6,000. English & Continental Furniture & Decorative Arts / Oct 25

This Transitional Louis XV/Louis XVI commode reflects the very high quality work of Simon Oeben, maître in 1769, and his brother, Jean-François, who was named ébéniste du roi in 1754. These characteristics include the cube parquetry and rectangular breakfronted form, known as à la qrecque, developed around 1760, as well as the gilt-bronze mounts. Two of their important clients were the Marquise de Pompadour and the Duc de Choiseul, for whom they almost exclusively produced many commodes à la grecque. The Estate of Mrs. Anne Marie Aberbach, New York. Est. $25,000-35,000. English & Continental Furniture & Decorative Arts / Oct 25 Vladimir Kagan’s (1927-2016) furniture from the 1950s took American homes in a completely new direction, reimagining everyday objects into works of art. This pair of Contour lounge chairs illustrate why he is known as one of the great furniture designers of the last century. Est. $12,000-18,000. Doyle+Design / Nov 21

Furniture & Dec Dating to the early 19th century, this elegant Federal chest is a masterful example of the use of contrasting flame birch panels and figured mahogany banding. The use of book matched veneers within a composition of rectangles on a serpentine form creates movement and containment in perfect balance. The drop panel may indicate a Portsmouth, New Hampshire origin. Property of a New York City Private Collector. Est. $5,000-8,000. American Paintings, Furniture & Decorative Arts / Oct 4

orative Arts Many pieces of 17th century American silver originated in church collections, such as this two-handled cup by prominent Boston silversmith John Coney (16551722). It was one of a pair commissioned by the First Church in Salem, Massachusetts in 1687. The Estate of a New York Lady. Est. $10,000-15,000. American Paintings, Furniture & Decorative Arts / Oct 4 This George II cake basket dated 1742 is a stunning example of the work of Paul de Lamerie (1688-1751), undoubtedly England’s greatest silversmith. The basket form appealed to English aristocrats’ sense of whimsy, a reference to England’s agrarian past and the source of much of their wealth.

Property from a Prominent Philadelphia Family. Est. $150,000- 250,000. English & Continental Furniture & Decorative Arts / Oct 25

Gorham’s Martelé silver adhered to the Arts and Crafts movement’s principle of hand craftsmanship. Exhibited in 1897, Martelé silver was introduced commercially in 1900 and ceased production in 1912. One of only 180 Martelé loving cups made, this example was presented in 1907 to John D. Slayback on behalf of the Washington Square Methodist Episcopal Sunday School. Est. $5,0007,000.
