| Elizabeth Peyton – the prints

Well known for her painted portraits, Elizabeth Peyton (*1965 inDanbury, Connecticut) has created since the 1990s a broad range of prints, including monotypes, lithographs, woodcuts, and etchings. Experimenting with different techniques, she also uses a variety of diverse and handmade papers as well as various colored and monochromatic inks. Her portrayed subjects—historical figures such as William Shakespeare and Richard Wagner; visual artists such as Frida Kahlo, David Hockney, Andy Warhol, and Robert Mapplethorpe; pop stars such as Eminem and Kurt Cobain; as well as her friends—populate both her prints and paintings. More recently, Peyton has turned to the genre of the still life to explore its contemporary relevance.

This monograph of Elizabeth Peyton’s prints is the first in-depth exploration of the artist as a critical printmaker. Featuring more than 70 of her prints in color, the monograph of Elizabeth Peyton’s prints is the first in-depth exploration of the artist as a critical printmaker.
