This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Dying young of a cerebral hemorrhage, Peter Cain was best known for paintings of slick realist style. He used profile views of the fronts and backs of cars to form semi-abstract sexually charged images.

Later he did portraits and industrial landscapes, especially scenes with gas stations.

He studied at Parsons School of Design and the School of Visual Arts in the 1970s and 80s. His work was included in the '93 and '95 Whitney Biennials.

The October 23, 2002 issue of "Village Voice" references Peter Cain in an article titled 'Carpe Diem' by Jerry Saltz.

Sources include:
"Art in America"
Antonella Casadio ("Village Voice" reference)
