Just announced this wonderful large early work by #peterdoig The Architect’s Home in the Ravine 1991 will be auctioned by @sothebys in London on 7 March. The subject, to quote Sothebys, refers to a building remembered from the artist’s childhood in Toronto– the home of Eberhard Zeidler. However, whilst this is the stated subject, the eerie mood and the composition can be better traced to a celebrated building by architect #lecorbusier , the Unité d’Habitation in Briey-en-Fôret in North-East France. In the summer of 1991 Doig visited this site as part of a team of artists and architects working on its restoration; the building had been derelict since 1973. He was struck by the view of the modernist building from the dense surrounding forest. #contemporaryart#auctionpreview#britishart#architecturelovers#londonarts#eberhardzeidler#sothebys#toronto#canada#briey
