The Courtauld Gallery has announced it will be presenting a new exhibition of work by Peter Doig, including works on paintings and works on paper created since the artist’s move from Trinidad to London in 2021. The display will concentrate on the new works created by the artist entering a new chapter in his career.

As the first exhibition by a contemporary artist to take place at The Courtauld since it reopened in November 2021, it will feature works that explore a variety of places, people, memories and ways of painting that have accompanied him to his new London studio.

As well as showing a major group of Doig’s new paintings in The Courtauld’s Denise Coates Exhibition Galleries, at the same time, the Gilbert and Ildiko Butler Drawings Gallery will showcase the artist’s work as a draughtsman and printmaker by displaying a series of his new and recent drawing and prints. For Doig, printmaking is an integral part of his artistic life: his prints and his paintings often work in dialogue with one another. By showcasing this vital aspect of his practice, visitors will be able to explore the full span of Doig’s creative process.  

The work being produced for this exhibition will reflect his current artistic preoccupations, from landscapes to monumental figure paintings. 

Ernst Vegelin van Claerbergen, Head of The Courtauld Gallery, said: “We are excited to unveil this new exhibition of works by Peter Doig, the first since his return to London. The Courtauld’s great Impressionist collection is a touchstone for many artists. It offers the perfect context to experience how Doig’s work resonates strongly with the art of the past whilst charting new directions. We are grateful to Morgan Stanley, Kenneth C. Griffin, the Huo Family Foundation and the Art Mentor Foundation Lucerne for the generous support that has made this important exhibition possible.”

The exhibition will be on display from the 10th February until the 29th May 2023.
