Rocketing to fame in the mid-1990s, Elizabeth Peyton has often depicted royals, aristocracy, and celebrities in her romanticized portraits. 'Prince Harry and Prince William' features the two namesake young British princes, dressed in formal attire and confiding closely with one another. This print displays Peyton’s frank perspective and distinctive brushwork, qualities which allowed her to thrive amidst declarations that figurative painting had become obsolete.
