Dear New York Press,
Stop labeling Elizabeth Peyton’s West 11th Street, Greenwich Avenue, and 7th Avenue, New
York City, 2008 “stunning” and “breathtakingly beautiful“. These are exactly the kind of remarks that fuel the arguments of critics who think her work is over rated. Lacking the emotional quality captured in her best portraits, NYC 2008, is at best a dreary cityscape that falls apart at a distance. In short it’s not a good painting. Otherwise, good job with the Peyton reviews.
