Kenneth Noland was a famous color field painter who worked mainly in plain colors and simple forms like stripes, bullseyes, and chevrons. The color field artist initially worked in Abstract Expressionism and later embraced the minimalist style. The upcoming Doyle auction will highlight a 1983 artwork titled Sand Glass by Kenneth Noland. The abstract acrylic on canvas features a vivid color palette and chevrons.
Sorel Etrog’s Flight II bronze with a green and gray patina is also showcased. Etrog’s sculptures are famous for their intellectual engagement with the audience. His works are also known for re-introducing ancient sculptural traditions in modern sculpture. They often feature contrasts between organic and mechanical elements. Those interested in Abstract Expressionism can consider Elaine de Kooning’s late 1950s Untitled oil on Masonite painting. The available artwork shows the influence of prehistoric cave paintings on Kooning’s work.
The auction will highlight color lithographs by Ellsworth Kelly that mark the beginning of his concerted style printmaking. The available works, such as Orange (Bleu Sur Orange), belong to a lithograph series produced with Maeght Éditeur in Paris. These lithographs depict Kelly’s emphasis on line and color, a style similar to Kenneth Noland’s. Rounding out the catalog is Gene Davis’ signature colored vertical striped painting, a screenprint by Ernest Trova, and a B. R. Khedkar bronze. Interested collectors can explore the entire listings and register to bid online on Doyle.
