Created in close collaboration with the artist, Elizabeth Peyton: Aire and Angels, explores the development of Peyton’s unique art from the 1990s to the present day.

Elizabeth Peyton is one of the world’s leading contemporary artists. Internationally renowned, her work has been at the forefront of a re-evaluation of figurative art and the tradition of portrait painting since the 1990s. The exhibition will include a selection of key portraits from the first two decades of her career, and investigate the new direction in her work over the last 10 years. Portraits on display from her diverse and ever-expanding repertoire of recurring subjects will include Kurt Cobain, Liam Gallagher, Frida Kahlo, Napoleon, Queen Elizabeth II, David Bowie, Phoebe Philo, David Hockney, Eva-Maria Westbroek and Jonas Kaufmann among others.

In addition to over 40 works on display in the exhibition, Peyton will become the first artist ever to be given the run of the entire National Portrait Gallery, with a selection of her portraits dispersed throughout the permanent Collection, juxtaposing Peyton’s paintings with historic portraits from the Tudor period onwards.
