Belle Belle Belle (La Belle et La Bête), 201
In the 1990s, US artist Elizabeth Peyton helped shape the renaissance of figurative painting and has earned her place in art history notably with portraits of friends, historical persons and popstars. The Fondation Beyeler Art Edition offers two works: one, in black ink, shows David Bowie, the other a sleeping woman in blue. Two etchings that speak Peyton’s incisive graphic language, and which testify to her masterly handling of the print-making technique, which she deploys in a uniquely painterly fashion. The signed and numbered prints are each available in a limited edition of 50.
