Martin's L'Aile aux Geraniums will sell with $150,000 estimate

L'Aile aux Geraniums by post-impressionist painter Henri Jean Guillaume Martin (1860-1943) could make $100,000-150,000 at Doyle New York on November 5.

While his work is not considered groundbreaking, Martin's command of technique and colour is noteable, and brought him critical and commercial appeal during his own lifetime.

A much-loved painter, Martin's work traditionally performs well at auction - with The Picnic achieving $120,000 in New York in 2005.

We have this letter signed by Pierre-Auguste Renoir - a contemporary of Martin.  

A screenprint of photographer Robert Mapplethorpe by Andy Warhol will be another hotly anticipated lot. Dating to 1983, the print features an estimate of $90,000-100,000.

An upcoming sale at Christie's New York will see the sale of Coca Cola (3), one of Warhol's most iconic artworks.

Mapplethorpe and Warhol explored similar themes throughout their careers and became close friends.

A 1987 photograph of Andy Warhol taken by Mapplethorpe sold for $643,000 in 2006 - the artist's most valuable print ever sold.

Man and Child with Guitar by George Benjamin Luks carries an $80,000-100,000 estimate.

A prominent member of the Ashcan school, the early 20th century movement that sought to depict modern urban life in as real a manner as possible, Luks often painted scenes of working class life in New York.

The painting dates to 1908, the year of the groundbreaking exhibition of the Eight at the Macbeth Gallery in New York that brought the Ashcan school wider recognition.
