PREVIEW: ELIZABETH PEYTON, À PARIS
The beloved portraitist opens her first show in Paris tonight, at Gagosian on rue de Ponthieu. Naturally, she’s brought her flock with her, including persons of interest Kanye West and Justin Bieber, as well as artist-pals like Nate Lowman, Klara Liden, Rirkrit Tiravanija, and the timeless muse Patti Smith—all painted and drawn in Peyton’s typically bold, expressive strokes.
