Tate Britain Exhibition

Peter Doig

Peter Doig made his name during the early 1990s with his distinctive approach to figurative painting.

Spanning the last two decades, this major survey brings together over 50 paintings and works on paper, and includes many pieces which have never previously been shown in the UK, made since his move to Trinidad in 2002.

This exhibition is the most comprehensive overview of Doig’s work to date, tracing the development of his recurring motifs and haunting vision, and discovering how he has continually challenged his own approach to image-making.
