The lot is sold in the condition it is in at the time of sale. The condition report is provided to assist you with assessing the condition of the lot and is for guidance only. Any reference to condition in the condition report for the lot does not amount to a full description of condition. The images of the lot form part of the condition report for the lot provided by Sotheby's. Certain images of the lot provided online may not accurately reflect the actual condition of the lot. In particular, the online images may represent colours and shades which are different to the lot's actual colour and shades. The condition report for the lot may make reference to particular imperfections of the lot but you should note that the lot may have other faults not expressly referred to in the condition report for the lot or shown in the online images of the lot. The condition report may not refer to all faults, restoration, alteration or adaptation because Sotheby's is not a professional conservator or restorer but rather the condition report is a statement of opinion genuinely held by Sotheby's.

Catalogue Note

“Human beings are very avant-garde, and are as worthy a contemporary subject as anything else." 


- Elizabeth Peyton


Throughout her revolutionary artistic career, Peyton has painted friends, lovers, prominent celebrities, and historical figures alike, all with piercing attention and virtuosic draftsmanship. While Peyton deliberately paints individuals in specific historical moments, she simultaneously abstracts her compositions and disengages her sitters from their social, political, cultural contexts; at the psychological crux of her art is juxtaposition between anonymity and recognition, individuality and uniformity.
