Philip Guston


Although much attention has been paid in recent years to Philip Guston’s figurative painting of the late 1960s and ’70s, this new book focuses on the decade preceding that period, published to accompany Hauser & Wirth’s first presentation of the work of Philip Guston. Part of the New York School, which included many abstract expressionists, Guston’s influence on his contemporaries and the following generation of painters is considered quite significant. This book focuses specifically on the period beginning in the late 1950s and spanning nearly a decade until the artist’s return to figuration in the late 1960s, featuring nearly 90 paintings and drawings from the artist’s abstract expressionist period, many of which have not been shown in public for decades, presenting a major survey of a seminal phase in the artist’s oeuvre.

This publication features an expanded chronology on the artist, which includes archival material, historic installation views, conversations with Guston and other selected texts (by the artist himself) from the exhibition’s time period. The book concludes with a section of 50 of Guston’s ‘pure’ drawings completed in the late 1960s.

Organised and edited by Paul Schimmel.
