Last week did I visit Denmark’s beautiful Museum of Modern Art, Louisiana in Humlebaek. It takes me about 1,5 hour to get there with help of two trains and a ferry. Always a fantastic day-trip.
There I met for me a new artist, Peter Doig, the most successful living European artist today. Born in Edinburgh in 1959, settled in Trinidad since 2002. In 2007, his painting White Canoe sold at Sotheby’s for $11.3 million, then an auction record for a living European artist. In February 2013, his painting, The Architect’s Home in the Ravine, sold for $12 million at a London auction.
There wasn’t one painting I wouldn’t like to own … but I neither have the walls or the money. This entry is about his painting “The House that Jacques Built”, 1992 – 200x250cm – and a gift of the British Friends of the Art Museums in Israel, Young Friends Committee, 1995.
This is in my eyes a Masterpiece.
“The House that Jacques Built” belongs to a series that Doig calls “Horizontal Triptychs.”
“A little perspective,
like a little humor,
goes a long way.”
