Internationally regarded as one of the most accomplished artists to emerge in recent years, Peter Doig embodies a renewed purpose and spirit in figurative painting. Born in Edinburgh and raised in Toronto, he established himself in London in the early 1990s.

Doig talks about his work with the AGO’s new Director of Exhibitions, Bruce Ferguson.

    I question Doig and the consistent adulation of his work. (Ferguson sounds suspicious himself?) I think perhaps this king is missing a few articles of clothing!? Interesting the podcast that immed. follows; the watercolors of David Milne… I’d like him in on the conversation! If only.
