Dimensions: 11.3in. x 9.8in. x 0.8in.Raised in Canada and now living in Trinidad, during the two decades he spent in London Peter Doig (b. 1959) emerged as one of Britains most influential painters.

Peter Doig is a critically acclaimed painter who spent many of his formative years in Canada. He now divides his time between Trinidad, London, and New York. Doig received his artistic training at the Wimbledon School of Art, St. Martin's School of Art, and Chelsea School of Art in London. His work has been celebrated in solo exhibitions at Tate Britain; the National Galleries of Scotland (and the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts); Muse d'art moderne de la Ville de Paris; the Morris and Helen Belkin Art Gallery, Vancouver (and the Power Plant, Toronto);Pinakothek der Moderne, Munich; and Fondation Beyeler, Basel.
