Art Salzburg 2018

ELIZABETH PEYTON Marie Antoinette for Rudy, 1993 oil on canvas
 
As I’ve done in the past two years, I’ll be exhibiting in Salzburg again this August.
I’d like to extend to you a warm invitation to visit us at the Kunstsalon or in the sculpture garden at Art Salzburg.
 
In anticipation of the show, I’d like to inform you of work of fine art that I’ll show in Salzburg:
 
ELIZABETH PEYTON
Marie Antoinette for Rudy, 1993
Oil on canvas
20 x 15 cm
 
Marie Antoinette for Rudy is an early work by the US portrait artist Elisabeth Peyton (born 1965). This excellent example of her painting is a gem among the works from its time.
 
Inspired by portrait photos from Alfred Stieglitz or Robert Mapplethorpe, Peyton began to paint portraits that applied photographic techniques. Photography continues to hold for her the value of a study or a sketch. Decisive in her choice of motifs is her model’s path in life and its inspiring effects or after-effects.
 
Marie Antoinette for Rudy is dedicated to Rudi Molacek, who in 1980s New York became renowned as a photographer.
A special characteristic of this work is its very subtle painting technique, and its especially strong potential expression, despite the small format. Comparable works from this time are difficult to find in the international market. This work presents a museum-quality collection piece.
