This beautiful volume focuses on a five-year period in Elizabeth Peyton’s evolving career to suggest not only a visual chronicle of an age, its heroes, heroines, and interests, but also of an individual’s life—that of Peyton herself.
 
Elizabeth Peyton’s work has been renowned since the early 1990s, when she began exhibiting her paintings and drawings of artists, musicians, historical figures, and friends. This new volume, prepared by the artist in collaboration with designer Brendan Dugan, founder of Karma bookstore and gallery, presents a concentrated view of a period bookended by two exhibitions in Brussels, one in 2009 and the second in 2014, a time of introspection, and the development of a more personal painterly language.
 
This phase of Peyton’s work is about a new realism and a considered situating of her interests and passions in relation to her own working practice. We see her range expand to take in lush still lifes composed of books, flowers, and fragmentary interiors; expressive, blooddrenched scenes drawn from Richard Wagner’s operas; and many magnificent and subtle portraits of peers and mentors, historical or present-day. From David Bowie to celebrated tenor Jonas Kaufmann; from Delacroix and Giorgione to Peyton’s artist peers such as Matthew Barney and Klara Liden; from Friday Night Lights actor Taylor Kitsch to tattoo artist Scott Campbell, as well as numerous self-portraits, her work is about narrowing the distance between the self and the object of fascination. “They are people expressing what it is to be human. Most art that’s any good is trying to do that—trying to put a voice to feeling. And in particular, the feeling of their time,” writes Peyton.

Our sellout 2005 monograph is now out of print, as is Peyton’s mid-career survey catalogue, Live Forever, published by the New Museum / Phaidon

Star-studded world: Over the years Peyton’s subjects have included Jarvis Cocker, Liam Gallagher, Kurt Cobain, Prince Harry, and David Bowie, as well as artists Jonathan Horowitz and Maurizio Cattelan, the dancer Michael Clark, the German tenor Jonas Kaufmann, and the art dealer Gavin Brown; but whether living or dead, past or present, the starting point for these romantically rendered individuals is always Peyton’s emotionally charged relationship with them.

Peyton is an artist who is not afraid to be unashamedly subjective in what she chooses to paint, or draw, or print—whether it is a pet, a lover, a couple of languorous ladies from a 19th-century Courbet painting, a pop icon (her 2012 painting of David Bowie promises to become a classic), or a teapot full of anemones. “They’re all about love,” Peyton says. “Ultimately all great art is really about love.”

Peyton’s work is collected by leading museums including: Musée National d’Art Moderne de la Ville de Paris, Centre Georges Pompidou, Paris; Kunstmuseum, Wolfsburg; Museum für Gegenwartskunst, Basel; Museum of Fine Arts, Boston; Museum of Modern Art, New York; Whitney Museum of American Art, New York; San Francisco Museum of Modern Art; Seattle Art Museum; and Walker Art Center, Minneapolis.

Peyton received the 14th Annual Larry Aldrich Award, an award that honors artists who have made a significant impact on visual culture (2006). She also received amfAR’s Award of Excellence for Artistic Contributions to the Fight Against AIDS (2007).

Endorsed by the Art Market, the price of her work has steadily increased. An oil on canvas representing John Lennon was sold for a record $800,000 in 2005; the same oil on panel, entitled Craig, 1997, was sold twice at Sotheby’s in New York City, first for $384,000 in May 2007 and then for $560,000 in November 2010

Elizabeth Peyton is a celebrated American artist. She is represented by Gladstone Gallery, New York and Brussels; Sadie Coles HQ, London; Regen Projects, Los Angeles; and Neugerriemschneider, Berlin.
