Morris painting sold at auction for double estimate

A small painting by the late George L.K. Morris was sold for $9,375 at Doyle NY Auction Galleries on May 8th, double the price it fetched 10 years earlier at Christie's and double its pre-sale estimate. Titled, "Spatial Perspectives 1953", the oil on canvas measures 16x13 inches and features Morris' interest in surface rotational planes. Morris' auction record of $169,000 was set in May 2008.
