Renowned artist Elizabeth Peyton has always allowed photography to inform her painting practice. The sixty-two portraits compiled in this, the first book devoted entirely to Peyton's
photos, provide an invaluable view of the artist's world, and her formal and conceptual strategies. Portrait of an Artist was published in 2008 on the occasion of an accompanying
exhibition at the Aldrich Contemporary Art Museum. More recently Peyton was the subject of a mid-career retrospective at the New Museum of Contemporary Art, New York, which
has traveled to the Walker Art Center, Minneapolis; Whitechapel, London; and forthcoming at the Bonnefanten Museum, Maastricht.
