WELCOME TO DOYLE! With over 80 auctions across our Doyle and Hayloft platforms, 2019 was a very busy and exciting year for our team. As much as we measure ourselves by the number of lots sold and prices achieved, we take great pride in our stewardship of the collectors and collections whose stories we have been entrusted to tell. This past year, we sold over 6,000 lots of jewelry to our global audience of buyers. We continued to see strong demand for colored stones, natural pearls and colored diamonds (particularly blue hues). We also enjoyed highlighting the philanthropic achievements of consignors including Elesabeth Ingalls Gillet, Mary Max and Janine Metz, culminating with the love story of Mollie Brewster Broussard and her husband, Thomas, illustrated in her jewelry collection.

The main goal of both our Tools of the Trade and Artist’s Studio lecture series is to provide an insider’s look into the craftsmanship of the pieces we love by those who create and restore them. Understanding how and why a piece was conceived allows us to appreciate it at a deeper level than aesthetics alone. Similarly, unwrapping layers and intricacies of techniques provides insight into what really distinguishes good from best. We hope that you will join us in 2020 on a collecting adventure. Find something you love, learn about a piece you already have or discover a new artist or maker. As we hear so many collectors say, the joy is really in the journey. Let Doyle be a frequent stop on yours. We look forward to welcoming you.

Laura Doyle CEO ON OUR COVER Marie-Victoire Lemoine (French, 1754-1820), Madame Leclerc, née Pauline Bonaparte, circa 1798-1799. See page 3.

1980s New York Artists The disparate group of artists that lived, worked and exhibited in Manhattan’s East Village, SoHo and Lower East Side during the 1980s has been regarded as revolutionary, confrontational, notorious – but above all, highly sought after by collectors around the world. Doyle has continued to be at the forefront of the market for this art movement, setting record prices and reintroducing artists to auction. A unique 1981 work on paper by Robert Longo, Men in the Cities (LA Wall) (see below) from his iconic series of the

same name, sold over its estimate at $87,500. A diminutive early work by Martin Wong, whose auction records have been set and re-set by Doyle in recent years, far surpassed its estimate of $4,000-$6,000 to bring $25,000 in an online auction. The appetite for Street Art godfather Richard Hambleton sees no signs of slowing, with a 1983 Shadowman painting bringing $100,000. Additionally, works by such Downtown artists as James Brown, George Condo, Frank Moore and Mark Kostabi, and Bronx graffiti legends CRASH and DAZE, are performing strongly at Doyle.

Two-Day Jewelry Sale Tops $6.6 Million! Doyle’s jewelry sales on Dec 12-13 topped $6.6 million as bidders from around the world competed for exceptional jewelry from three remarkable collections. From the Estate of Janine Metz, Social Secretary to the Duchess of Windsor, was a marquise diamond weighing 9.54 carats that achieved $200,000. Highlighting jewelry from the estate of animal rights advocate Mary Max was a colorful 1960s bangle bracelet set with amethysts, turquoise and diamonds by Van Cleef & Arpels that sold for $137,500. The Mollie Brewster Broussard Collection featured the largest-ever offering at auction of jewelry by David Webb, highlighted by a whimsical double giraffe bangle bracelet that fetched $46,875.

In 2020 we hope to capture the whimsy and wonder of childhood in Cherished: American Folk Art and Toys from the Estate of a Private Collector. This particular collection resonates strongly with me because my father had a very similar appreciation for early American toys. My keen interest in collecting Cabbage Patch Kids and Barbie dolls was matched with enthusiasm from my father and supplemented by antique counterparts with bisque heads. Both my parents nurtured my collecting gene with doll house furniture buying trips and subscriptions to Nutshell News and Miniature Showcase. Attending doll house fairs and creating thematic rooms cultivated an early appreciation for workmanship and attention to detail. I learned Albert Sack’s Good, Better, Best maxim in 1/12th scale.

Highlights of the Fall Season


Doyle is honored to auction the landmark single-owner sale, Cherished: American Folk Art & Toys from the Estate of a Private Collector. Assembled over many decades by a sophisticated connoisseur, this remarkable and extensive collection comprises over 400 lots of American paintings, folk art, toys, samplers, quilts, rugs, furniture and more. The collector had a particular interest in childhood, and the collection weaves a tale of the child in American history -- from numerous important samplers and needlework pictures wrought in silk or wool by young girls aged five to eighteen from the mid-18th to the mid-19th century to an extensive group of toys and mechanical banks reflecting production during the Industrial Revolution. Paintings feature a circa 1831 watercolor of two children of the Prescott family of Portsmouth, NH, by Ruth Whittier Shute (1803-1882) and Dr. Samuel Addison Shute (1803-1836). Dr. Shute studied medicine at Dartmouth College but gave up his practice to travel with his wife as itinerant painters in New England and New York State in the early 1830s (est. $100,000-150,000).


FROM THE ESTATE OF MOLLIE BREWSTER BROUSSARD AND THE ESTATE OF MARY MAX FEBRUARY Luxurious bags and scarves from two sophisticated collectors span a wide range of styles from classic to contemporary. The Estate of Mollie Brewster Broussard embraces traditional elegance with bags by Hermès, Louis Vuitton and Chanel, as well as a wide range of silk scarves by such makers as Gucci, Hermès and Chanel. From the Estate of animal rights advocate Mary Max are colorful, contemporary designs by Louis Vuitton, Dior, Fendi, Stella McCartney and Gucci.


FROM THE ESTATE OF JANINE METZ & A PRIVATE COLLECTION APRIL The Duke and Duchess of Windsor were two of the 20th century’s most fascinating people, and we continue to be intrigued by the former king and his American-born wife. From the Estate of Janine Metz, the Social Secretary to the Duchess, are photographs and ephemera, and Property from a Private Collection features bespoke clothing, autographed letters and even the Duchess’ court fan.

Jean Beraud (French, 1834-1935), Carrefour Drouot . Sold for $405,000 Š 2019 Estate of Pablo Picasso / Artists Rights Society (ARS), New York

Pablo Picasso (See page 4)



William Malherbe (1884-1951) was born north of Paris and exhibited at the Salon d’Automne and Galerie Durand-Ruel before travelling to the United States at the outbreak of World War II. Influenced by artists like Bonnard and Renoir, Malherbe is best known for his vibrant paintings of outdoor scenes, portraiture and still lifes in the tradition of the Post-Impressionists, as seen in Roses, from the Estate of Rosa Strygler (est. $800-1,200).

Jules Cavailles (1901-1977) was born in Carmeaux, in the South of France. While studying technical draftsmanship, he met the Pointillist artist Henri Martin who encouraged him to study in Paris. Cavailles was influenced by the bold and colorful expressiveness of the Fauve painters, including Matisse and Derain. This stunning example of Cavailles’ oeuvre expresses the poetic reality of the objects depicted, and offers an homage to Matisse in the palette of orange and pink (est. $3,000-5,000).


Marie-Victoire Lemoine (1754-1820) was born into a family of artists and came of age at the center of the Parisian art world. After studying with a pupil of François Boucher, she went on to specialize in portraits and genre subjects. This lovely portrait of Napoleon’s younger sister Pauline Bonaparte at the age of 19, a ravishing testament to the artist’s powers, was exhibited at the Salon in 1799 (est. $40,000-70,000).


FEB 12

MAR 10

In the 1930s, Jacob Kainen (1909-2001) was among the ranks of America’s abstract artists struggling to gain attention and make a living in New York. A skilled printmaker, Kainen seized on an opportunity to work as print specialist at the Smithsonian Institution in Washington, DC, where he lived from the 1940s until the end of his life and where he is revered for his contribution to the local arts community (est. $3,000-5,000).

Meet of the Royal Buckhounds at Ascot Heath by Richard Barrett Davis (1782-1854), from the Estate of Percy Rivington and Evelyn Sloane Pyne, was one of many pictures by the artist that portrays a Royal hunt. His father was huntsman to the Royal harriers of George III, and his brother Charles, pictured astride a favorite grey, was the Queen’s huntsman. Davis studied under Sir William Beechey, R.A. and at the Royal Academy, and in 1831 was appointed animal painter to William IV and later Queen Victoria (est. $30,000-40,000).



Thomas Hill (1829-1908) studied painting at the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Art and was associated with the artists George Inness and Albert Bierstadt. Hill moved to San Francisco and became known for his views of the Yosemite Valley. In Nevada Falls, Yosemite, he depicts an angler and his canine companion hiking up the Merced River. Their diminutive size gives the scene a sense of grandeur (est. $12,000-18,000).





© Successió Miró / Artists Rights Society (ARS), New York / ADAGP, Paris 2019

This monumental color etching and aquatint with collage by Joan Miró (1893-1983) is one of the largest prints in his Gaudí series from 1979. Miró was greatly influenced by the architect Antoni Gaudí, and they both studied drawing at the Centre Artistic de Sant Lluc in Barcelona. A fine example of Miró’s signature vibrant colors, bold forms and interlacing lines, Gaudí XXI reflects his admiration for the architect’s innovative use of form and materials, from a La Jolla Family Collection (est. $20,000-30,000).

Abbott Fuller Graves (1859-1936) is well known for his beautiful depictions of gardens in full bloom. He was friends with artists Edmund Tarbell and Childe Hassam and was associated with the Boston School. From a Massachusetts Private Collector, The Garden Wall depicts a young couple in conversation framed by a lush, flowering garden (est. $18,000-25,000).



Pablo Picasso (1881-1973) created this magnificent 26-piece Service Poisson in 1947, a year after his first visit to the Madoura pottery factory in Southern France. Rare to find complete, the pieces are fine, early examples of Picasso’s ceramic work, which he created over a 25-year period, and depict one of his favorite subjects, the fish (est. $60,000-80,000). See page 2.

Teaching first at the ”New Bauhaus” – Chicago’s Institute of Design – and later at RISD, Harry Callahan (1912-1999) influenced several generations of photographers. One of a series of experimental collages he undertook in the 1950s, this work juxtaposes hundreds of clippings from magazines in an abstract composition of great complexity. It predates, and was likely an influence on, the photocollages of artists such as Ray Metzker, Callahan’s protége (est. $4,000-6,000).


Living through decades of change in socio-political life and artistic movements in America, Seymour Fogel’s work continues to impress in its variation and range. Fogel worked on WPA murals in the 1930s as an apprentice to Diego Rivera, moving towards Abstract Expressionism in the late 1940s and 1950s, and finally exploring spirituality and transcendentalism after his return to New York from Texas. Untitled (Black Squares) is an interesting example of the artist’s ongoing experimentation in style and media (est. $2,000-4,000).


Raised in the Midwest, John Opper (1908-1994) moved to New York in 1934, where he studied under Hans Hofmann from 1935-1936. It was through Hofmann and his classmates that he was introduced to Modernism. In addition to his painting career, Opper was employed by the Works Progress Administration (WPA) during the War designing for a private nautical architect, and later worked as an educator until his retirement in 1974 (est. $7,000-10,000). Best known for his iconic portraits, Barkley L. Hendricks (1945-2017) also produced a number of mixed media works on paper, including Jerusalem Slim from 1979. Hendricks was at the forefront of addressing African American culture in fine art throughout his career, bringing much-needed attention to the underrepresented as a highly regarded artist, photographer and college professor (est. $8,000-12,000).

Brightly colored pumpkins by Yayoi Kusama (b. 1929) are whimsical, open-edition sculptures, which the artist regards as equally allegory and self-portraiture (est. pair $1,800-2,200). The DoyleNext timed online-only auctions offer originals and editions by established and emerging artists.







Playful and elegant jewelry from the Mollie Brewster Broussard Collection featured in this season’s Fine Jewelry auction includes a gold and multicolored enamel tiger clip-brooch by Martine (est. $600-800). From the Estate of Janine Metz, Social Secretary to the Duchess of Windsor, comes a stunning Gold Ram’s Head Bangle Bracelet composed of twisted polished gold and wire (est. $2,000-3,000). Other animal-form objects sure to delight include a gold, enamel and diamond dragon brooch (est. $2,500-3,500), a whimsical two-color gold, diamond, enamel and green chalcedony cat pin from a New York Estate (est. $600-800) and a gold, enamel, ruby and diamond tiger clip-brooch (est. $1,500-2,000). Further highlights feature a platinum, emerald and diamond bow brooch (est. $1,200-1,800) and a classic gold wristwatch by Chanel (est. $2,500-3,500).

Fab e




The gift of miniature pendant eggs, made by Fabergé and other prominent jewelers, was an Orthodox Easter custom observed in Imperial Russia. Usually decorated with Easter symbols or ornaments related to the Spring season, these eggs typically were given to ladies who by their mature years could assemble necklaces full of miniature eggs. Made in Fabergé’s Moscow workshops, this egg from a Southern California Collector is decorated with flowers that symbolize the promise of Spring and the new life of the Easter season (est. $3,000-5,000).

The Important Jewelry auction brings together jewelry from prominent estates and collections in New York and beyond. An outstanding platinum and diamond bracelet (est. $5,000-7,000) and brooch signed by Tiffany & Co. (est. $8,000-12,000) are evocative of the Art Deco style, which enchanted contemporary audiences in the 1930s and continues to captivate today. Another highlight is a stunning platinum and diamond pendant-brooch by Harry Winston (est. $30,000-40,000). This American jeweler opened his first store in New York City in 1932 and remains the quintessential diamond destination decades later.

Doyle’s California Jewelry auctions are organized by our Specialists based in Beverly Hills who travel throughout the West Coast collecting and showcasing elegant designs from curated collections and estates. An exquisite gold, cabochon pink tourmaline and fire opal necklace by Suzanne Felsen from a Santa Monica Collector wows with its bold hues ($1,800-2,500). From the same collection is a group of thirteen multi-colored hammered gold and diamond slender bangles (est. $2,000-3,000). Also featured in this auction is a gold, stainless steel and yellow sapphire necklace by Faraone (est. $5,000-7,000). Jewelry by this storied Italian brand has captured the imagination of nobility including Queen Margherita of Savoy, as well as opera and cinema stars Maria Callas, Ava Gardner and Ingrid Bergman.



JAN 8, MAR 31 & JUNE Discover one of New York’s most popular design resources – Doyle at Home! A pair of Napoleon III style giltwood armchairs after A. M. E. Fournier will add a pop of bright color to any room (est. $800-1,200). A friendly porcelain cat and dog perch on a pair of Louis XV style Chinoiserie decorated marble top commodes (est. $800-1,200), while a frightful dancing dragon paraded by a group of men decorates a tall Chinese porcelain floor vase. Continuing the theme is a set of six French gilt-metal and porcelain Chinoiserie decorated cups (est. $300-500).



Made in Connecticut of solid cherry in the late 18th century, this Chippendale secretary bookcase was inspired by the high-style mahogany examples from Boston. The scrolled pediment and shell-carved interior are based on Classical and Palladian sources (est. 1,500-2,500). During the Federal period, painted work tables accompanied the art of needlework, practiced by girls and women, and ornamented a fashionable drawing room (est. $500-700). The lively trade in Chinese export porcelain accelerated in the early 19th century, and patrons could order services with specific motifs or monograms, such as the monogrammed service ordered by New York Senator James M. Watson (1750-1806) and his wife Mary Talcott (1752-1806), additional pieces of which are in the collection of the New York Historical Society (est. $2,000-3,000).


The use of marquetry on a pair of George III satinwood, tulipwood and marquetry pier tables takes cues from the work of Thomas Chippendale and his son, Thomas Chippendale, Jr. The husk swags on the frieze are similar to pier tables made by Thomas Chippendale Jr. for Denton Hall, and the Antique profile portrait resembles a pier table made by Chippendale in 1775 for Harewood House (est. $20,000-30,000). From the Estate of Leonard and Elaine Silverstein of Bethesda, MD, are two Elizabethan needlework panels of bed hangings from Cassiobury House embroidered with vignettes of pastoral life and exotic animals, including an elephant, crocodile and a monkey (est. $2,000-3,000). Property of a Park Avenue Lady includes a floral-decorated and painted beechwood armchair (est. $400-600). Plan your next trip, or shoot for the stars, with a pair of terrestrial and celestial globes (est. $2,000-3,000).


Danish designer Poul Henningsen (1894-1967) is best known for his iconic PH lamp series. Introduced at the 1925 Exposition Internationale des Arts Décoratifs et Industriels Modernes in Paris, the innovative lamps used baffles to provide indirect, glare-free lighting. This rare patinated metal and opaline glass six-light PH-Star chandelier is from the Estate of a Private Collector (est. $6,000-8,000). The futuristic lines of Vladimir Kagan’s (1927-2016) Cosmos lounge chair and ottoman reflect the Space Age aesthetics of the early 1970s. The soft organic shapes seem to float weightlessly above the clear Lucite bases. The German-born designer immigrated to New York in 1938, where he studied architecture at Columbia and later apprenticed with his father, a master cabinet maker. He opened his own shop in 1949, and in 1952 was selected by MoMA for the exhibition Good Design (est. $1,500-2,500).




Just in time to celebrate Edward Gorey’s birthday, fans of the author can bid on a wide selection of his whimsical, imaginative and macabre signed books, prints, plush toys, rarities and ephemera. Also featured in the sale is illustration art by other artists.

RARE BOOKS, AUTOGRAPHS & MAPS APRIL Before Baedeker’s, Fodor’s and Lonely Planet, travelers to cities around the world relied upon the Stranger’s Guides, which were published during the 19th and early part of the 20th centuries. The David Gerstel Collection of Stranger’s Guides comprises hundreds of examples focusing on guides to cities major and minor across the United States, published from about 1800 on. They served to orient business visitors to specific American cities, but now provide deep insights into the growth of American urban culture, business history, and more. Most contain fine maps of the cities and surrounding areas. Dutch cartographer Johann Baptist Homann’s (1664-1724) Regni Mexicani seu Novae Hispaniae, Floridae, Novae Angliae, Carolinae, Virginiae et Pensylvaniae, circa 1712, is offered in an early state that retains the name Floridae in the title. The hand-colored engraved map features two large vignettes: one a naval battle and the other a gold mine scene with people trading goods (est. $500-800).



Scheduled during Asia Week New York, the March 16 auction presents an historical survey of the arts of China, Japan and Southeast Asia spanning the Neolithic Period through the 20th century. Offerings include porcelain, pottery, jade, snuff bottles, scholar’s objects, bronzes, screens, furniture and paintings. Classic examples of monochrome porcelain from the Kangxi period (1662-1722) feature a green glazed bowl incised with auspicious symbols, diameter 5 1/2 inches, and a bowl with light yellow glaze, diameter 4 3/8 inches, each with the Kangxi Six-Character Mark and of the Period (est. each $1,500-2,500). Doyle is honored to be an auction house partner of Asia Week New York.

Margaret Mitchell’s great novel, Gone with the Wind, which chronicles the life of Scarlett O’Hara during the American Civil War and Reconstruction, sold extraordinarily well when released in 1936, rapidly running through many printings. The true first edition is scarce, especially when signed by the author and in a sound example of the first issue dust jacket like this one from a Princeton, New Jersey Private Collection (est. $2,500-3,500).


Last Fall, Doyle was honored to auction The “Dr. Al” Collection of Gold Coins. This remarkable and extensive collection was highlighted by stellar examples of the Liberty Head and St. Gaudens Double Eagle Series. The collection only recently emerged after many decades in storage, creating great excitement among collectors. The Spring 2020 auction promises to attract equal enthusiasm from collectors with fresh property from prominent estates and collections.

This April, Doyle is honored to offer The Estate of Gary Combs. A prominent Manhattan autograph dealer for decades, Combs specialized in Americana, music, royalty, and literary autographs and manuscripts. Highlights include a fine John Adams letter as President, George Gershwin writing on Hollywood a year before his premature death at 38, a note that author P.G. Wodehouse has quit smoking and many other signed items that bring history to life.
