Philip Guston: Paintings 1947-1979
Michael Auping, Martin Hentschel, Christoph Schreier
Focusing on Philip Guston’s mature production in abstraction and his later figuration, this book argues for Guston as a consistent artist whose generic shift in the late 60s, from Monet-like abstract hatchings to the cartoonish forms of his final decade and a half, reminded artists everywhere that courage is what it’s all about. Here, well-known experts on Philip Guston’s oeuvre such as Michael Auping and Christoph Schreier discuss the scope of Guston’s sizeable body of work.
