Her work is intensely personal, but the subject becomes an intimate of both audience and artist." Compiled by Peyton herself, this book chronicles ten years of inspiration, her works in many media, and her exhibitions, revealing the evolution of this exceptional artist who has been highly influential, in the words of the New York Times, in bringing "a return to beauty in art, a resurgence of figurative work, and a revival of painting."

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
It's fitting that Peyton's first major show was in room 828 of Manhattan's fabled Chelsea Hotel, whose residents have included everyone from Thomas Wolfe to Sid Vicious. Her portraits-whether of Edwardian poet Rupert Brooke, Prince Harry or her friends-seem to emerge from the same timeless, eternal bohemia that the hotel exemplifies. The portraits recorded in this lavish volume-small, and painted with an offhand casualness that doesn't quite conceal a formidable technique-are idealized and emotional rather than "warts and all" realistic. Her Kurt Cobain more closely resembles a Renaissance cherub (by way of Walter Keane) than the ravaged child of his videos and photographs; her young Queen Elizabeth is creamy and serene, with none of the real subject's characteristic wariness. But Peyton's art is about emotional truth and visual intensity. If the book has a fault it is a certain sameness and repetition: Peyton's work hasn't developed all that much since the Chelsea Hotel show of 1993, and what in a gallery might surprise and refresh becomes, over the course of 200 pages, cloying. Peyton's achievement is, nonetheless, impressive: she has helped return the painted portrait to the mainstream discourse of American art. (Nov.) Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.
Library Journal
Peyton (b. 1965) has quietly made a name for herself among the top American contemporary artists with small, intense portraits. These passionately colored, dreamlike paintings depict friends, associates, and her mainstays-"rockers and royals" (almost-famous musicians and members of the royal family). Collected here by the artist herself are nearly 250 paintings and drawings spanning ten years of Peyton's life, from her first serious works in 1995 to paintings dated 2005 (and no doubt still drying on the canvas). All are beautifully reproduced, many in full color and on full pages. The introduction and "Conversation with the Artist" provide a good look into Peyton's life and inspirations; the biography and complete bibliography are invaluable. Though Peyton is gaining in popularity and is increasingly being represented in major museum collections, there are relatively few publications devoted to her. This monograph represents the first major work of its kind and includes a biographical essay, two reprinted journal articles, and a bibliography. Recommended for all contemporary art collections.-Kraig Binkowski, Yale Ctr. for British Art, New Haven, CT Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.
