About the Artwork

Part of the portfolio 100 Years Ago, in this etching the melancholic and ghostly figure is characteristic of the artist visual code.

“I am trying to create something that is questionable, something that is difficult, if not impossible, to put into words,” Peter Doig

Doig’s works evoke a mysterious world of its own, which the viewer can access only to a certain point. The interaction with Doig’s works brings the feeling of timelessness, which at any time could be interrupted by unexpected events.
