About Elizabeth Peyton

View Profile »

Elizabeth Peyton (American, b. 1965) is a contemporary painter, best known for her portraits of artists, musicians, historical figures, and athletes. Peyton studied at the School of Visual Arts, New York. In 1993, her second solo exhibition in a room of the Chelsea Hotel, which featured images of Mademoiselle Georges, who was the reputed lover of Napoleon and the Duke of Wellington, opened to great critical acclaim. Her later portraits of artists, musicians, and other cultural figures have been hailed for their expert use of color and design, and for their evocative, descriptive qualities. In 2008, her work was the subject of a mid-career retrospective at the New Museum, New York, traveling subsequently to the Walker Art Center, Minneapolis, Whitechapel Gallery, London, and Bonnefantenmuseum, Maastricht. Her work has been extensively exhibited internationally in galleries and museums, and is in the collection of major public collections, including the Solomon R. Guggenheim, New York; The Museum of Modern Art, New York; Centre Georges Pompidou, Paris; SFMoMA, San Francisco; Kunstmuseum, Wolfsburg; Walker Art Center, Minneapolis; MOCA, Los Angeles; Tate Modern, London; and the Whitney Museum, New York.
