Peter Doig at Frank Fluegel Gallery

Peter Doig is a painter from Scotland. He currently lives in Trinidad. He is known for the painting White Canoe, which sold at auction at Sotheby’s for $11.3 million in 2007. At that time, it was the highest amount ever paid for an artwork created by a living artist from Europe. His work is figurative in style and many of his paintings are landscapes. He draws inspiration from photographs which he finds and some of his own, but he paints in a style that is not photorealistic.
