Doyle Lane Mid-Century Ceramic Bead Auction | Aug 27, 2018 @ 1PM
Hughes is thrilled to present the Doyle Lane Mid-Century Ceramic Bead Auction. This online only auction will place Monday, August 27, 2018 at 1 PM PST and features a significant collection of stunning ceramic beads by American potter Doyle Lane (1925 – 2002).
Doyle Lane was an African-American ceramist known for his innovative use of glazes, large-scale clay paintings and mosaics, vases, and beads. Lane’s studio was the El Sereno district of East Los Angeles and he exhibited his work at Brockman Gallery in Leimert Park and Ankrum Gallery on La Cienega Boulevard, both centers for African American Art in Los Angeles in the Mid-20th century. With works in the collections of the Smithsonian American Art Museum, Los Angeles County Museum of Art and the Huntington Library, among others, Doyle Lane’s work is now highly sought by collectors. All beads and necklaces offered are unused, new old stock from the Estate of Doyle Lane.
