Elizabeth Peyton

Keith (from Gimme Shelter), 2004
Lady with Ermine, 1489-90 (after Leonardo da Vinci), 2003

Flower Ben, 2002


Sharon (Berlin), 1996



Marc Jacobs, 2004




Liam, 1996

Is it OK to make paintings from mass media photographs? Is it wrong? Illegal? Trashy? Looked down upon as not original? Elizabeth Peyton has made many paintings from Newsweek photos, Rolling Stone, newspapers, and art history books. She is a great figure and portrait artist capturing the essence-or what the public thinks is the essence. These are just a few of her paintings. She's painted several movie stars, rock stars, designers, royalty - not knowing any of them. She also has painted several of her friends.

She was born in 1965 in Danbury CT and now lives in NYC. She earned her BFA from the School of Visual Arts in NYC, 1984-87 and has been steadily exhibiting since 1988.

"Known for her intimate figurative portraits of youthful, romantic individuals, her work is intensely personal. They are stylish in a timeless way and are at moments in their lives when they stand for their own ideals of independence, beauty, and artistry. " (Matthew Higgs)
