peter doig.


today i want to introduce you to another of my favourite artists - peter doig
he is a contemporary painter born in edinburgh, scotland, in 1959. in 2007 one of his works, entitled the 'white canoe' was sold at sotheby's for $11.3 million. then an auction record for a living european artist.
his paintings are rich in detail, mostly displayed in cold colours and atmosphere - very touching. they remind me somewhat of expressionistic and impressionistic works of other infamous artists such as monet, van gogh and gaugin.
... can you find ressemblances in the paintings shown below?
