    October 3, 2019 - January 5, 2020
    National Portrait Gallery
    St Martin’s Place
    London, UK

    Created in close collaboration with the artist, the exhibition is accompanied by a series of displays within the Collection, positioning Peyton’s art within the context of historic portraiture. Having occupied a central place within visual art since coming to prominence in New York in the early 1990s, her work demonstrates an intensely personal and increasingly expansive understanding of the genre.

    Elizabeth Joy Peyton (b.1965) is one of the preeminent artists working today. She paints still lifes and landscapes, but above all, portraits: of friends, lovers, heroes, admirations, inspirations and fascinations. Her subjects include artists, activists, actors, athletes, dancers, musicians, queens, princes, politicians and poets. Captured from life, memory, literature and imagination, through found images and photographs, amongst many things her art explores love, individuality, beauty and the passing of time
