Over the past twenty years Peter Doig has established an international reputation as one of the finest painters working today. This catalogue looks in depth at the work he has produced since re-establishing contact in 2000 with his childhood home of Trinidad and moving there in 2002. Essays by the exhibition's curators, Keith Hartley, Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art, Edinburgh, and Stephane Aquin, of Montreal Museum of Fine Arts, look respectively at his formal inventiveness and the significance of his new subject matter. The book also contains a new interview with the artist and fellow Scot, Angus Cook, and a highly perceptive personal view of Doig's work by New Yorker columnist Hilton Als. The colour illustrations give a complete overview of Doig's work in this key period in his artistic career and images of his source material and initial sketches give an invaluable insight into his working procedure.
