Cult Classic, Elizabeth Peyton

I really love this self-compiled book of Elizabeth Peyton. The portraits of greats such as Jarvis and Kurt and whimsical and unrefined, completely personal. They resonate a timeless quality. I can't quite put my finger on what makes these work so well. Is it her choice of picture? (they're definitely not from life). I'd love to see her working process. Anywho, I find them rather touching and would love to have a Jarvis for my non existent art collection.

The book 'Elizabeth Peyton' is published by Rizzoli and available at Artwords.
