Here Are Peter Doig's Top 10 Favorite House Painters of All Time (Really)
Detail of Peter Doig's Red House, 1995

In 1994, the British artist and curator Matthew Higgs asked a group of artists showing at London’s Cabinet Gallery to each produce their own top ten list on a subject of their choice, to be published as part of Higgs’s publishing project Imprint 93 (itself the subject of an upcoming retrospective at Whitechapel Gallery, opening September 2016). Here, we’ve reproduced the painter Peter Doig’s choices for the best painters of houses, from Courbet to Ruscha. For more on Doig and his work, pick up a copy of Phaidon’s monograph Peter Doig from their Contemporary Artist Series.
