10 Feb – 29 May 2023
Denise Coates Exhibition Galleries
A major exhibition of new and recent works by Peter Doig – including paintings and works on paper created since the artist’s move from Trinidad to London in 2021 – will open at The Courtauld Gallery on 10 Feb 2023.
The Morgan Stanley Exhibition: Peter Doig will present an exciting new chapter in the career of one of the most celebrated and important painters working today. It will be the first exhibition by a contemporary artist to take place at The Courtauld since it reopened in November 2021 following its acclaimed redevelopment.
Since relocating to London, Doig has been developing paintings started in Trinidad, New York and elsewhere, which are being worked up alongside completely fresh paintings, including a new London subject. The works produced for the exhibition at The Courtauld convey this particularly creative experience of transition, as Doig explores a rich variety of places, people, memories and ways of painting.
He has long admired the collection of The Courtauld Gallery and the Impressionist and Post-Impressionist artists who are at its heart have been a touchstone for Doig’s own painting and printmaking over the course of his career. Visitors will be able to consider Doig’s contemporary works in the light of paintings by earlier artists in The Courtauld’s collection that are important for him, such as those by Cézanne, Gauguin, Manet, Monet, Pissarro and Van Gogh.
The Gilbert and Ildiko Butler Drawings Gallery will also showcase the artist’s work as a draughtsman and printmaker by displaying a series of his new and recent drawings and prints. For Doig, printmaking is an integral part of his artistic life and by showcasing this vital aspect of his practice, visitors will be able to explore the full span of Doig’s creative process.
The exhibition is sponsored by Morgan Stanley. Supported by Kenneth C. Griffin and the Huo Family Foundation, with additional support from the Art Mentor Foundation Lucerne.
