1899 Thomas Moran Painting Captures Venetian Light & $193,750 Price NEW YORK CITY – On March 27, Doyle conducted a successful auction of American paintings, furniture and decorative arts. This auction category is Doyle’s premier venue for Nineteenth and early Twentieth Century American paintings, with the sale showcasing examples of Hudson River School landscapes, Western and Regional art, still lifes, portraits, nautical scenes and folk paintings. A highlight was an 1899 view of Venice by Thomas Moran (1837-1926) that achieved $193,750, far surpassing its estimate of $100/150,000. Moran is one of America’s most revered artists of the western landscape. While at the height of his creative powers in the 1880s-90s, he traveled to Venice, where the views of that brilliant city would inspire him for the rest of his career. Property from the estate of Joan Harmon Van Metre, the painting captured the dramatic light and vibrant colors of Venice. For information, 212-427-4141 or www.doyle.com .
