UK Contemporary Art - Peter Doig




Doig is represented by Michael Werner Gallery, New York and London. In 2007, Doig's painting "White Canoe" purchased by Charles Saatchi and sold at Sotheby's for $11.3 million, then an auction record for a living European artist. In 2009, "Night Playground" (1997-98), a densely painted landscape painting being sold by Joel Mallin, a New York collector, went for $5 million at a Christie's auction in London, well above its high estimate of $3 million. Also at Christie's London, The Architect's Home in the Ravine (1991) was auctioned at a price of 7.66 million pounds in early 2013. Later that year, Cesar Reyes, a psychiatrist who lives in Puerto Rico and is one of the artist's biggest collectors, sold "Jetty", a 1994 canvas of a lone figure on a dock at sunset, for $11.3 million. His painting "Gasthof" was sold at Christie's in 2014 for $17,038,276.
