AUCTION PREVIEW FALL 2019
WELCOME TO DOYLE!
Strong Prices for Works by Women Artists
Joanne Mournet, President / Kathleen M. Doyle, Chairman / Laura K. Doyle, CEO
At Doyle we love to highlight collections – large or small, named or anonymous, whether in a single owner sale or section, or spread throughout several sales. It is exciting to see the world through each collector’s eyes. The time spent putting together a collection, the patience, the discipline are impressive, but what we really try to capture is the joy. We have so many choices today in how we live, how we spend our time and money. Frequently, instant gratification is our default mode, but there is a pleasure in the processes of auction and collecting. There is a happiness derived from using something both functional and beautiful. There is stability in quality. This season we invite you to Doyle to rediscover those and the many other delights of auction. We are honored to auction extraordinary works by Frederick Carl Frieseke, Helen Frankenthaler and other prominent artists from the collection assembled by The New York Times Director Marian Sulzberger Heiskell and her husband Andrew Heiskell. The Mollie Brewster Broussard Collection, highlighted by the largest-ever offering at auction of jewelry by David Webb, reflects the Broussards’ fifty-year shared passion for and appreciation of beauty and design. Join us for our evening programs this Fall as The Artist’s Studio presents Contemporary artists Carlos Rodriguez (Sept 9) and David Healey (Dec 11). Learn how to assemble your own collections of Coins, Bank Notes & Stamps (Oct 15) and Maps (Oct 22) in our New Collectors Series. And celebrate the spectacular collection of fine and decorative arts of the Hispanic Society Museum & Library (Nov 12). Auction is the ultimate buying experience! Join the excitement in our New York salesroom, our regions and online at Doyle.com

NASREEN MOHAMMEDI – SOLD FOR $350,000
Recent sales of Modern and Contemporary art at Doyle evidence the increasing market demand for works by women artists from around the world. The May sale of Post-War & Contemporary Art showcased two evocative paintings by the Indian artist Nasreen Mohammedi (1937-1990), whose diverse oeuvre is progressively appreciated as central to the history of modernism. One of the paintings, Night, achieved a stunning $350,000 – a record price for her work sold outside of India and the second highest price ever for one of her paintings. Across all categories, women artists are commanding ever-stronger prices at Doyle, among them Le Thi Luu, Olga Albizu, Mary Bauermeister, Margaret Kilgallen and Irene Rice Pereira, whose 1937 work in the May sale set a new world auction record for the artist.
The Estate of Oleg Cassini
The worlds of fashion, art and design converged at Doyle on June 27 for the auction of the Estate of Oleg Cassini, the legendary fashion designer best known for creating Jacqueline Kennedy’s signature style as First Lady. This landmark sale offered a wide range of property from his elegant Manhattan townhouse and from Moorelands, his lavish residence in Oyster Bay Cove. Highlighting the sale was a rare 16th century suit of armor that achieved a stunning $262,500 – an American auction record for European armor. With competitive bidding from fans and collectors around the world, the auction totaled a successful $1,307,931, surpassing its estimate of $578,185884,260 with an exceptional 100% sold – a "White Glove Sale" – all 755 lots were sold!

© 2019 Helen Frankenthaler Foundation, Inc. / Artists Rights Society (ARS), New York
Jewelry from the Estate of Elesabeth Ingalls Gillet is a highlight of the October 16 auction of Important Jewelry. Known as Eles (pronounced ‘Liz’), she was born in Birmingham, Alabama, to a prominent steel manufacturing and shipbuilding family. Home for much of her life was Pelican Hall in Palm Beach, the OCT 16 elegant house built by her grandfather in 1937 and where she entertained the elite of Palm Beach society. She divided the rest of her time between Birmingham, New York and Maine. An avid sportswoman, Eles enjoyed yachting and fishing in the Gulf and the Caribbean and traveling for sporting parties in England, Scotland and Mexico. She was a generous donor to numerous charities, including organizations relating to cancer and animal conservation. She was a benefactor of the 1988 Academy Award-nominated film Gorillas in the Mist, based on the autobiography of conservationist Dian Fossey. Jewelry from the Estate of Elesabeth Ingalls Gillet offers a range of pieces, from exquisite family heirlooms to bold and sometimes whimsical designs that embody a great lady and a life well-lived.
The Marian Sulzberger Heiskell & Andrew Heiskell Collection NOVEMBER 6 & OTHER DATES
Doyle is honored to present The Marian Sulzberger Heiskell and Andrew Heiskell Collection as a highlight of the Fall season. A civic leader and philanthropist, Marian championed outdoor community spaces across New York and led a nonprofit organization responsible for restoring the 42nd Street theatres. She was instrumental in the 1972 campaign to create the Gateway National Recreation Area, a 26,000-acre park with scattered beaches and wildlife refuges around the entrance to the New York-New Jersey harbor. For 34 years, she worked as a Director of The New York Times, where her grandfather, father, husband, brother, nephew and NOV 26 grand-nephew served as successive publishers. Her work at the newspaper focused on educational projects. In 1965, Marian married Andrew Heiskell, the Chairman of Time Inc., whose philanthropies included the New York Public Library. Highlights from the couple’s remarkable art collection include a group of works by Helen Frankenthaler and Carl Frederick Frieseke (see front cover), as well as examples by Pierre Eugène Montézin, Arnaldo Pomodoro, Auguste Rodin and Georges Braque, and elegant furniture, silver and decorative arts.
HELEN FRANKENTHALER / NOV 6
The Mollie Brewster Broussard Collection DECEMBER 12
DAVID WEBB / DEC 12
Mollie Brewster Broussard is lovingly remembered as a mentor to many lawyers, doctors, professors, politicians and authors, having taught Speech and coached students for public speaking competitions in Oklahoma and Texas before moving to New York City in 1962 to teach at Hunter College. In 1968, she married Thomas R. Broussard and moved to Los Angeles, where he served as General Counsel for Technicolor. They returned to New York, furnishing their elegant Park Avenue apartment with art and antiques in the style of the Ancien Régime. The couple shared a love of French cuisine, culture and fashion, traveling to France for several months each year to add to their growing collections and to acquire luxurious fabrics for her Beverly Hills couturier. Mollie’s exceptional jewelry and colorful accessories were presented to her by her husband across 51 years of birthdays, anniversaries and holidays. Highlights include over 70 signature designs by David Webb, as well as an extensive collection of jewelry and luxury accessories by such makers as Van Cleef & Arpels, Cartier, Chanel and Hermès (see page 7).

EDWARD MARTIN TABER / OCT 15
SCHOOL OF PIER FRANCESCO MOLA / OCT 30
NICOLA SIMBARI / SEPT 18
An Imperial Tibetan gold woven tapestry hanging of the Qianlong Period depicts the Thousand Buddhas symbolically destined to redeem the world in successive generations. By repute it was presented to the emperor Qianlong by the Dalai Lama of Tibet for the Lamaistic temple in Beijing (est. $10,000-15,000). From the Estate of an Upper East Side Collector is a group of Chinese Qing dynasty jades, including a white jade double gourd form covered box carved in relief with a striding chilong, length 3 1/4 inches (est. $1,200-1,800). 2
JOHN CASILEAR / OCT 8
ART AT HOME / SEPT 18 & NOV 26
The vibrant, hyper-saturated colors that characterize Nicola Simbariâ€™s (1927-2012) paintings reflect the small Calabrian fishing village in which he was born, and his childhood in Rome. His masterful use of the palette knife renders dynamic, thickly-painted canvases drenched in light with dramatic color gradation, such as In the Garden from 1965 (est. $1,500-2,500).
AMERICAN PAINTINGS / OCT 8
An influential member of the Hudson River School and friend to artist Thomas Cole, John Casilear (1811-1893) worked as an engraver and was a student and assistant to Asher B. Durand, who influenced Casilear with his attention to detail. Property of The Metropolitan Museum of Art, this landscape of the Catskills is a wonderful example of Casilearâ€™s late work and a subject for which he is well known (est. $15,000-25,000).
RICHARD ANSDELL / OCT 8
PIERRE-AUGUSTE RENOIR / OCT 22
DOGS IN ARTÂŽ & SPORTING ART / OCT 8
British artist Richard Ansdell (18151885) trained as a portraitist, but soon found success as a painter of livestock and sporting subjects, often emphasizing the individual personalities of the animals. In a fine example from the Estate of a Long Island Lady, a huntsman stops to adjust his saddle girth while his horse and two hounds interact like companions in the field (est. $10,000-15,000).
FINE PAINTINGS / OCT 15
Born on Staten Island, Edward Martin Taber (1863-1896) studied briefly under Abbott Thayer and exhibited at the Society of American Artists. Due to poor health, he left the city for Stowe, Vermont in his 20s, where his paintings focused on capturing the shifting light and atmospheric conditions of the landscape. Property of The Metropolitan Museum of Art, a chilly view of Mount Mansfield depicts one of the artistâ€™s favorite subjects (est. $3,000-5,000).
PRINTS & MULTIPLES / OCT 22
A beautiful print of children playing ball by the important French Impressionist Pierre-Auguste Renoir (1841-1919) is one of only four color lithographs created by the artist. Renoir used a different stone for each of the ten colors in order to achieve a rich, painterly effect, resulting in this masterwork of lithography (est. $30,000-50,000).
OLD MASTER PAINTINGS / OCT 30
During the mid-17th century in Rome, the North Italian painter Pier Francesco Mola pioneered a form of narrative religious imagery set in hilly landscapes with dense foliage. These works became popular with Roman patrons and attracted a large following among other artists in Rome. Moses Striking the Rock, in which the prophet opens a spring for his people in the wilderness, is a particularly baroque example enlivened by interlocking figures and dramatic gestures (est. $6,000-8,000). 3

IMPRESSIONIST & MODERN ART / NOV 6
POST-WAR & CONTEMPORARY ART / NOV 6
Born in Brooklyn, George Tooker (19202011) studied at Harvard University and at the Arts Students League, where he was taught for a short time by Reginald Marsh and became friends with Paul Cadmus. Property from a Prominent Philadelphia Collector, Laundress from 1952 is a rare example of the artist’s work in oil. It is an intimate scene of a woman and her three children on a rooftop in the city (est. $100,000-150,000).
Ad Reinhardt (1913-1967) was always an abstract painter. Though he moved freely from biomorphic to geometric forms, his dedication to a purely aesthetic art making process never ceased. In the late 1940s Reinhardt shifted from a hard-edged style toward an expressionist brush stroke, aligning him with Jackson Pollock, Willem de Kooning and the Action Painters. Number Twelve, a gouache on paper created in 1949, is a strong example of this period (est. $70,000-90,000).
French artist Jean Béraud (1849-1935) specialized in delightful Paris street scenes featuring stylish gentlemen and ladies of the Belle Epoque strolling the city’s grand boulevards and public squares. This masterful painting from 1887 shows the Carrefour Drouot, a square formed by the crossing of five streets on the Right Bank, with all the sparkle and vitality of the artist’s best work (est. $400,000-600,000).
Manipulating digital technology to create powerful abstract paintings, Wade Guyton (b. 1972) challenges the viewer’s concepts of mechanical reproduction and re-appropriation. From the Estate of Contemporary art dealer Frederieke Sanders Taylor is the 2009 work, Untitled Printer Drawing (Gabo, p 31), which displays Guyton’s unique ability to craft a bold image using new mediums and innovative methods (est. $7,000-10,000).

Dubbed a Surrealist in 1942 by the movement’s legendary co-founder André Breton, Italian artist Enrico Donati (1909-2008) had an illustrious career spanning many decades and art movements. A late work from 1996, Multitude is an excellent example of Donati’s unique ability to combine modern abstraction with pictographic forms (est. $3,000-5,000).
Robert Mapplethorpe’s (1946-1989) enigmatic image, Shoes on Plates, 1984, documents a moment from a performance of The Power of Theatrical Madness by the Belgian artist and director Jan Fabre. This gelatin silver print is copy 4 of 10 examples, with the Mapplethorpe estate stamp on the reverse signed by Michael Ward Stout, titled, numbered and dated in pencil (est. $4,000-6,000).
Creating dreamlike depictions of the rural Midwest, Joe Andoe (b. 1955) was instrumental in revitalizing realistic painting following the heyday of Minimalism and Geometric Abstraction. His loose, beatific images breathe new life into American landscape painting (est. $1,800-2,200).
The duo Kate Ericson and Mel Ziegler created conceptual installations that were often part Land Art, part social/environmental activism, and part American history. For their late 1980s series Feed & Seed, they collaborated with working farmers to exchange portions of seed costs for empty seed bags, which became readymade sculptures that speak to commerce and agriculture. The work is from the Estate of Contemporary art dealer Frederieke Sanders Taylor (est. $800-1,200).

THE MOLLIE BREWSTER BROUSSARD COLLECTION / DEC 12
Pink diamonds are among the rarest gemstones on earth, and among the most mysterious. Whereas colorless diamonds are pure carbon, blue diamonds are the result of traces of boron, and the presence of nitrogen creates yellow diamonds, scientists can only theorize what causes a diamond’s pink color. The prevailing view is that intense seismic pressure alters the stone’s crystal structure at the molecular level, producing the pink hue. Collectors will soon have the rare opportunity to bid on one of these mysterious and dazzling treasures of nature. Highlighting Doyle’s Important Jewelry auction on October 16 is a Fancy Intense Orangy Pink Diamond, approx. 2.40 carats, SI2 clarity, from the
Property of a Sarasota Lady (est. $100,000-150,000).
The single-owner auction of the Mollie Brewster Broussard Collection offers an extensive selection of jewelry and luxury accessories by the world’s most prestigious designers, including over 70 pieces by David Webb. A gold, platinum, carved coral and diamond griffin clip-brooch by Cartier and a gold, platinum, carved coral, cabochon emerald and diamond cuff bangle by Tiffany & Co. (est. each $15,000-20,000) reflect the bold and sophisticated taste of the remarkable woman who collected them (see page 1). 7

A George II chest of drawers displays the decorative grain of figured walnut (est. $500-700), and a Dutch Rococo style walnut armchair continues the natural wood theme with floral marquetry decoration (est. $300-500). French glass artist Emile Gallé’s (18461904) interest in flora and fauna inspired his fire polished cameo glass vase (est. $2,500-3,500). Mintons Ltd. introduced its Secessionist Ware in 1902. The ceramic wares are characterized by Art Nouveau designs with abstracted floral motifs and colorful glazes, exemplified by a pair of garden seats (est. $1,500-2,500). A group of whimsical lettuce ware by Dodie Thayer adds a colorful note.
FURNITURE & DE AMERICAN FURNITURE & DECORATIVE ARTS / OCT 8 A pair of refined and elegant Federal card tables, attributed to Duncan Phyfe, were part of a suite of furniture made for Thomas Cornell Pearsall of New York City in the early 19th century. The banded central tablet, reeded legs and inverted baluster feet are exemplary of Phyfe’s best work (est. $8,00012,000). A pair of 19th century classical carved caryatid figures on faux marble bases hold aloft acanthus and palm leaf planters (est. $2,000-4,000).

Property of a Florida Lady, the punch bowl is ornamented with mer-figures in waves, gulls and seaweed, and rests on snail-form feet (est. $7,000-10,000).
ENGLISH & CONTINENTAL FURNITURE & DECORATIVE ARTS / OCT 30 Paul Sormani (1817-1877) was born and trained as a cabinetmaker in Venice, then moved to Paris where he specialized in furniture in the Louis XV and Louis XVI styles and was commissioned by Empress Eugénie to create furniture for the imperial palaces.

A George III sterling silver covered soup tureen by Thomas Robins, London, 1810, is a classic example of the robust designs associated with Regency silver that reflected the prosperity of 19th century England (est. $7,000-10,000).
ECORATIVE ARTS DOYLE+DESIGN® / DEC 18 Hans Wegner (1914-2007) designed the iconic Papa Bear Chair, AP-19, in 1951 for the Danish firm A.P. Stolen. It received its name from a critic who described the arms as “great bear paws embracing you from behind” (est. $5,000-7,000).
