In 2007, Peter Doig became a household name when his painting “White Canoe” sold for over $10 million at auction, setting the record at the time for the highest price fetched by a living European artist.

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.

Doig’s works draw their inspiration and imagery from a variety of sources including photographs, art history, film stills, posters, and magazines as well as his own experiences living in Canada, the United Kingdom, and Trinidad.

Both his palette and his subject matter reference his international experiences and background.

Caviar20 is very excited to offer “Canoe- Island” (2000), which depicts a familiar Doig motif—the solitary canoeist. 

In this work, both the brilliant sunset and the disconcerting depths of the water surround the lone figure as he canoes past the ruins of an abandoned prison.

Additional images available on request.

When a work is valued above $2,500 usd there is a possibility of tax of 0.35%, but this is applied sporadically. There can similarly be an additional fee for customs brokerage and this can range from $20 - $65. US Taxes, duties and customs brokerage are not included in our flat rate shipping.
