Auction Date: Apr 29, 2021

Estimate: €0 - €0

Description: Group of 3 lithographs of political satire by John Doyle (HB) (1797-1868), printed in London by Mc Lean, 1835. Doyle, born in Dublin, soon moved to London, achieving success through caricature and political satire . From 1827 he began his production of drawings that he signed with the monogram HB, safeguarding his anonymity; his works were published by the famous publisher Thomas Mc Lean and lithographed by Alfred Ducôte, were so successful that Prince Metternich himself owned the entire collection. The drawings made from 1830 to 1845 marked a fundamental step in the history of caricature, bringing English satirical art to a more moderate language than that used by contemporary colleagues.
litography 42,8 x 34, 43,3 x 32 e 43 x 34 cm

Goody-Two-Shoes. Or Colonial Conciliation. [London]: Thomas M'Lean, 28 June 1832.

11.25 x 16.75 in. (slight wear along edge).

Lord Goderich (Colonial Secretary) becomes a barber; Lord Howick (Under-Secretary), a cobbler. Both favored immediate emancipation. The overseer, back to the viewer, dominates the scene. The man being shaved asks why, when he does not have a beard. A sack with "Al. Thorpe / Northampton" at the feet of the overseer is overflowing with shoes. Lord Howick is trying to force another man's foot into one of the shoes while a second man with new shoes hobbles away.

New West-India Dance, to the tune of 20 Millions. [London]: Thos. M'Lean, 18 June 1833.

11.375 x 16.625 in. (Slight browning along edges).

The British Empire abolished slavery in 1833 and allocated 20 million to compensate slave owners for their loss. Abolitionist Thomas Fowell Buxton stands in a circle of dancing men. Lord Althorp converses with John Bull on the right, requesting payment for the Piper, to which Bull replies that he should ask the man in the broad-brimmed hat.

DOYLE, John (1797-1868; pseudonym “H.B.”). An album of c. 130 lithographed caricature prints. London: Thomas McLean, [1830s]. Oblong 2°. The prints, mounted one, two or, on one occasion, three to a page, average landscape size 349 x 264mm and portrait size 320 x 220mm, the great majority coloured by hand (occasional tears, one torn with loss). FINELY BOUND in contemporary red straight-grained morocco gilt, gilt edges (rubbed). Provenance: VANE LONDONDERRY (armorial bookplate). The Irish artist John Doyle is chiefly remembered for his occasionally scabrous satirical political prints.

The majority of the prints in this album relate to The Reform Bill. “As the founder of ‘the modern school of graphic satirists represented by Richard Doyle, John Leech and John Tenniel’ Doyle prepared the way for Punch. The name of ‘caricature’ disappeared, and the modern word ‘cartoon’ assumed its place” (DNB). Also included in the lot is an original pen-and-ink wash drawing, signed and dated “H. H. Burnell, Dec. 1842”, and titled, “Sketch of New Drawing Room for The Most Noble Marquis of Londonderry. Holderness House.

John Doyle (1797-1868), Attr., Moonlit Landscape, 1828

Lot 29: John Doyle (1797-1868), Attr., Moonlit Landscape, 1828

Auction Date: Jan 08, 2015

Estimate: €3,600 - €4,500

Description: Oil on canvas
England, 1828
Attributed to John Doyle (1797-1868) - Irish-born cartoonist and painter
Signed and dated lower right 'J. Doyle 1828'
Verso on the stretcher and frame with several poorly legible inscriptions and old auction labels
Broad gold frame
Dimensions: 64 x 76 cm
Doyle, who became famous as a political cartoonist in London under the pen name HB, painted various oil paintings, including some moonlight scenes during his early creative period. They are considered exceptional collector's items and are a rare find on the art market
Object is regular taxed. 19% VAT is added to the purchase price for deliveries within the EU.

This painting from 1828 is attributed to John Doyle and depicts an landscape in the moonlight - an unusual subject matter for the artist who was primarily known for his satirical drawings. Before the viewer extends a wide river landscape with a moss-covered ruin towering in the left. A couple is sitting by the shore, enjoying the tranquility of the moonlit night. The full moon shines low, illuminating the calm riverbed sailed by a few boats. Skillfully the painter created an imaginary landscape with a romantic atmosphere and an interesting chiaroscuro. The composition is certainly inspired by the work of the English painter Sebastian Pether (1790-1844), who was known for his atmospheric moonlight subjects that were particularly popular in England during the late 18th and early 19th century.

The painting is signed and dated lower right 'J. Doyle 1828'. The stretcher and frame bear several poorly legible inscriptions and old auction labels on the verso. There are five unprofessional restorations to the sky and the right area: on the front with clearly visible retouching and backed on the verso. Further there are some marginal blemishes with color losses along the edges due to rubbing of the frame. The canvas is slightly wavy, with small dents. The frame shows some wear. The framed work measures 90.5 x 103 cm, the stretcher frame measures 64 x 76 cm.

John Doyle (1797-1868)
In his youth John Doyle was a pupil of the landscape painter Gaspare Gabrielli and studied under John Comer Field at the Royal Dublin Society. In 1805 he was honored with a gold medal. During his early creative period he painted landscapes, depictions of race horses and received commissions for equestrian portraits. In 1822 Doyle settled in London. Here he was successful with his political caricatures, which he published as lithographs under the pseudonym HB. Between 1829 and 1851 his cartoons were printed in 'The Times'. Today over 900 of his drawings are in the collections of the British Museum. John Doyle was the grandfather of the famous author Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. (tfa)

Doyle, who became famous as a political cartoonist in London under the pen name HB, painted various oil paintings, including some moonlight scenes during his early creative period. They are considered exceptional collector's items and are a rare find on the art market
Object is regular taxed. 19% VAT is added to the purchase price for deliveries within the EU.

This painting from 1828 is attributed to John Doyle and depicts an landscape in the moonlight - an unusual subject matter for the artist who was primarily known for his satirical drawings. Before the viewer extends a wide river landscape with a moss-covered ruin towering in the left. A couple is sitting by the shore, enjoying the tranquility of the moonlit night. The full moon shines low, illuminating the calm riverbed sailed by a few boats. Skillfully the painter created an imaginary landscape with a romantic atmosphere and an interesting chiaroscuro. The composition is certainly inspired by the work of the English painter Sebastian Pether (1790-1844), who was known for his atmospheric moonlight subjects that were particularly popular in England during the late 18th and early 19th century.

The painting is signed and dated lower right 'J. Doyle 1828'. The stretcher and frame bear several poorly legible inscriptions and old auction labels on the verso. There are five unprofessional restorations to the sky and the right area: on the front with clearly visible retouching and backed on the verso. Further there are some marginal blemishes with color losses along the edges due to rubbing of the frame. The canvas is slightly wavy, with small dents. The frame shows some wear. The framed work measures 90.5 x 103 cm, the stretcher frame measures 64 x 76 cm.

John Doyle (1797-1868)
In his youth John Doyle was a pupil of the landscape painter Gaspare Gabrielli and studied under John Comer Field at the Royal Dublin Society. In 1805 he was honored with a gold medal. During his early creative period he painted landscapes, depictions of race horses and received commissions for equestrian portraits. In 1822 Doyle settled in London. Here he was successful with his political caricatures, which he published as lithographs under the pseudonym HB. Between 1829 and 1851 his cartoons were printed in 'The Times'. Today over 900 of his drawings are in the collections of the British Museum. John Doyle was the grandfather of the famous author Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. (tfa)
