Last Chance :: Elizabeth Peyton

Earl’s Court, 1997. Oil on board, 10×8 in.

The Art Collector’s strongly urges anyone in the NY area to see Elizabeth Peyton’s exhibit at the New Museum before it closes on January 11. Consisting of  more than 100 works from the past fifteen years, Live Forever: Elizabeth Peyton marks the first comprehensive survey of the artist’s career to be held in an American institution.

Peyton’s works are at once nostalgic and completely fresh, an ode to the forgotten art of figurative painting and a celebration of modern subjects. Through depictions of instantly recognizable cultural icons to her most intimate friends, Peyton inspires us to rejoice in the beauty that arises from the remarkable individuals who have impacted our lives.

The exhibit travels to The Walker Art Center in Minneapolis from Feb. 14-June 14, 2009, and then moves on to Whitechapel Gallery in London and the Bonnefantenmuseum, Maastrciht, Netherlands.

Pati, 2007. Oil on board, 9×7 in                                Zoe’s Kurt, 1995. Oil on board, 14×11 in.
