Peter Doig
Peter Doig's paintings and prints are often based on photographs that he has either found or taken himself. In Haus der Bilder (House of Pictures) the photographic source was transferred on to a copperplate, which the artist then re-worked extensively. There are several versions of this subject on paper and canvas, offering an insight into Doig's practice of frequently re-visiting and re-working the motifs of his source material.
Technique

A photo-etching on three aquatint plates printed on 350gsm Hahnemühle paper. From a series of eight etchings titled 100 Years Ago published by The Paragon Press in 2001.



Peter Doig
Peter Doig (born in Edinburgh in 1959) lives and works in Trinidad. In 1979 he attended Wimbledon School of Art, then St Martin's School of Art and finally Chelsea School of Art. Doig is currently also a professor at the Kunstakademie Düsseldorf. His rich painterly landscapes are often influenced by his Canadian childhood and the various countries he has since lived in. His work is frequently based on images taken from photographs. Doig’s captures moments of tranquillity, quite often including uncanny or slightly mysterious elements.
