Peter Doig

TYPE Books

Regular price $34.05

A companion publication to renowned artist Peter Doig’s latest exhibition at the Courtauld, featuring new and recent works.

Accompanying a major exhibition of new and recent works by Peter Doig at The Courtauld, London, this publication will present an exciting new chapter in the career of one of the most celebrated and important painters working today. It includes paintings and etchings created since the artist’s move from Trinidad to London in 2021 as well as a major group of large paintings made for this exhibition.

The works produced for the exhibition convey his creative experience, as Doig explores a rich variety of places, people, memories, and ways of painting that have accompanied him to his new London studio. For Doig, printmaking is an integral part of his artistic life: his prints and his paintings often work in dialogue with one another. The exhibition and catalog will also showcase the artist’s work as a printmaker by unveiling a new series of etchings that Doig has made in response to poems by his friend, the Nobel Prize-winning poet Derek Walcott (1930–2017). The result is a beautiful exploration of how Doig recasts and reinvents traditions and practices of painting to create his own highly distinctive works.
