Peter Doig

The Tate Britain's website provides this online resource to accompany a retrospective exhibition on the artist Peter Doig, which ran from 5 February to 11 May 2008. This online resource featured selected works displayed in each of the eight rooms of the original exhibition. The online exhibition begins with paintings from his time at the Chelsea School of Art 1989-1990, when his landscapes were unlike anything else in the London art scene at this time. It continues with selected works providing a comprehensive overview of his work to date, and tracing his recurrring motifs and his approach to image-making. A video is provided in which the artist guides the visitor around his exhibition, and other resources show the works by Doig in the Tate collection, and an article from the Spring 2008 issue of Tate Etc on Doig and his artwork.
