The Courtauld is delighted to share a new film that offers a rare glimpse into the studio of Peter Doig, one of the most celebrated and influential painters working today. It follows Doig in the days leading up to the opening of his exhibition of new work at The Courtauld Gallery.
Since relocating from Trinidad to London in 2021, Doig has set up a new studio in the city where he has been developing paintings started in Trinidad, New York and elsewhere in preparation for their unveiling at The Courtauld Gallery exhibition.
In the film, Doig reflects on his move to this studio and on this particularly creative period during which he has made a major new group of paintings. Doig offers insight into his work, which explores a rich variety of places, people, memories and ways of painting.
Doig has long admired the collection of The Courtauld Gallery and in the film he considers the Impressionist and Post-Impressionist artists who have inspired his own painting and printmaking over the course of his career.
