Works in the MOMA collection
Over the past fifteen years, Elizabeth Peyton has created a large, remarkably consistent body of work that includes paintings, drawings, watercolors, and prints. With a handful of notable exceptions, Peyton has concentrated on making portraits of individuals ranging from historical figures, to artistic contemporaries, to friends. Born in Connecticut, Peyton’s fascination with painting and drawing people began in childhood and continued throughout her years in art school at the School of Visual Arts in Manhattan. In the early 1990s in New York, she was one of a very few young artists who chose to explore figurative painting, and her work, in retrospect has proven to be a paradigm of a kind of popular realism that has had a major influence on contemporary art in the US and Europe since the middle of the 1990s…
