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.
