PETER DOIG "CANOE" AQUATINT, 2008

Sold

In 2007, Peter Doig (b. 1959) became a household name when his painting “White Canoe” sold for $11.3 million at auction, setting the record at the time for the highest auction price by a living European artist.

By the age of 50, Doig had major retrospectives at the Tate Britain, the Paris Museum of Modern Art, and the Montreal Museum of Fine Art.

Doig’s works draw inspiration and imagery from a variety of sources including photographs, art history, film stills, posters, and magazines as well as his own experiences living in Canada, the United Kingdom, and Trinidad.

 This work, “Untitled (Canoe)” reflects Doig’s cultural influences and interest in the effects of colonization. The canoe itself is an iconic and often referenced symbol for Doig, with its ties to Indegeniuous Canadian cultures...but also a motif for exploration, leisure and discovery. 

 With its otherworldly hues, nearly formless landscapes, and ghostly gestural figures, “Untitled (Canoe)” reflects Doig’s imaginative and personal exploration of broader transcendental themes.

Additional images available on request.
