This exquisitely designed monograph of new works by Scottish painter Peter Doig (born 1959) is published for an exhibition at the Palazzetto Tito, Venice, at which Doig debuted recent large-scale and small-scale works. This slim volume, with its printed slipcase, vellum jacket, five gatefold pages and superb reproductions printed on a substantial paper that allows the images to really shine, shows the intimate, quiet but colorful intensity of Doig’s art to great effect. The imagery in the new works is diverse, drawing on private and found visual sources, and sometimes repeating (as in the image of the lion that appears on the book’s jacket). The book documents the Palazzetto Tito exhibition with shots of the works installed in the Palazzetto’s beautiful historic rooms alongside reproductions of the paintings. show more
