Happy Valentine's Day

An Elizabeth Peyton portrait would make for a lovely Valentine.

The American pop artist who recently celebrated a retrospective exhibit at the New Museum in New York ('Live Forever: Elizabeth Peyton') has a lush affection for willowy rock stars, rendering their enigmatic beauty in stunning jewel tones and capturing musical genius with striking graphic lines.

Below are a selection of her earlier portraits, including images of: Keith Richards, Kurt Cobain, Jarvis Cocker, and Eminem.

Happy Valentine's Day!
