About this artwork

Known for his “magical realist” approach to painting, Peter Doig creates mysterious, ethereal scenes that suggest an alternate universe in which fantasy and reality collide. Inspired by his childhood years in Trinidad, where he permanently relocated in 2002, he often depicts tropical scenes suggestive of distant paradise. This print depicts a group of young men arriving onshore in a canoe set against a moody, dark-toned background punctuated by a single palm tree. “Imaginary Boys” was conceived in association with the artist’s solo-exhibition at the Musée d’Art Moderne in Paris.

In every generation of artists, there are a few-or perhaps just one-who propose a new set of questions and alter the way we understand art. Turner Prize-nominated artist Peter Doig, Scottish *1959, is such an artist. While stories of painting’s demise in the early 1990s deemed painters and their work quaintly anachronistic, Doig-looking ahead as much as back for inspiration-forged a new painterly language: an ironic mix of Romanticism and post-impressionism to create haunting and sometimes dreamlike landscape vistas. In this lavish new volume devoted to his entire career-which includes paintings, drawings, and reference material, such as found photographs-art historians Richard Shiff and Catherine Lampert mine the artist’s rich and varied work. Doig’s landscapes have been inspired by the many places the artist has lived-England, Canada, Trinidad. So, too, does memory, or the idea of memory, inform much of his production.
