A must have for every artists bookshelf, gets my brain firing on all cylinders. It has no biography or academic/curatorial opinions, theres a simple introduction that enhances the work illustrated. I just want to look at the work and wonder in it's mystery! The drawings are key to his paintings and you won't see that more ably illustrated than in this book.

For what this book is, page after page of drawings, you cant ask for more 1 Dec 2007
By clifford - Published on
Format: Hardcover
Doig has been gaining quite a following over the last few years. His art is exploratory and innovative in my mind. More than anything his work is about the mark and texture along with its correspondence to mood and composition. So what this book does so very well is give the viewer a full breadth of his work on paper basically over six or so years.

What I found missing that I would have enjoyed reading was a little biographical information or an interview or a critical article that explored his work in a comprehensive fashion. But I can do without. His work is something that you can go back to again and again and learn something new every time.

If you are looking for a great survey of Doig's work, you wont be disappointed by this.
