Book Overview
The first complete survey of the work of the great American artist, Philip Guston. Driven and consumed by art, Guston painted and drew compulsively and talked about it with an unrivalled passion and fluency. Preeminent art critic, curator, and artist Robert Storr maps Guston's career, providing an accessible and revealing analysis of his work from the early social realist murals, to his poetic easel paintings of the 1940s, his shimmering abstract expressionist works of the 1950s and early 1960s, and his new and powerful language of figurative painting of the later 1960s and 70s. The book also contains talks and writings by Guston himself that evince his approach to drawing and love of old masters, as well as an in-depth chronology. Extensively illustrated with all the artist's best-known works, many lesser-known and previously unpublished, the book will also include photographs of the artist at home, at work, at exhibitions and with other artists.
