About The Work

In 2007, Peter Doig became a household name when his painting “White Canoe” sold for $11.3 million at auction, setting the record at the time for the highest auction price by a living European artist. And if that number sounds surprising, his paintings continue to surpass that record; most recently in November 2021, when "Swamped" sold for $39.8 million at auction. 

Sales records aside, by the age of 50, Doig had major retrospectives at the Tate Britain, the Paris Museum of Modern Art, and the Montreal Museum of Fine Art. Needless to say, he is an artist with major international acclaim. 

Doig’s imagery has attracted fans from all corners of the world. Not surprisingly, the artist has been influenced by his own international experiences, having lived in Canada, the United Kingdom, and Trinidad. 

"Across the Lake" comes from a series of nine photographs created by the artist that offers a glimpse into his creative process. 

While Doig could be associated with landscape painting, his interest in leisure and sports enable him to help evolve the genre. His landscapes go beyond mere scenery, often presenting elements of recreation and play in his distinct contemporary expressionist style. 

In this image, Doig offers an expansive winter landscape, capturing the meandering expanse of a frozen lake framed by a barren forest. In the distance, a modest cabin stands in the center of the work, hosting a vivid red canoe that rests on the dock. As if frozen in time, the summer motif challenges the crisp winter backdrop. 

Over the course of his career, Doig has created a limited number of editioned works. To our knowledge, this is his first and only release of photographs. Not only is this from the first chapter of his illustrious career but also released in a very limited edition of 12.
