The Peter Doig retrospective opens today at the Tate Britain in London. This comprehensive survey chronicles the artist who in 2007 became one of Europe’s most expensive living painters when his work White Canoe sold for £5.7 million at Sotheby’s. His canvases blur the line between abstraction and figuration as he creates images drawn from photographs, newspapers or snapshots.
