9781903973493: Philip Guston Retrospective

The most comprehensive survey of Philip Guston's work to date, this catalogue showcases 138 paintings and drawings, spanning from 1930 to the artist's death in 1980. A team of scholars addresses key issues and themes surrounding the development of Guston's art, exploring his early influences and the origins of symbols that resurfaced and played a prominent role in his late work. They provide insight into Guston's philosophy regarding abstraction, his role within its development, and the social and art historical context from which his so-called 'Klan paintings' emerged. The volume includes an essay written by Guston, an illustrated chronology of the artist's life and career, and a comprehensive bibliography.

About the Author:

Michael Auping is Chief Curator at the Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth, Texas, and the author of books on abstract expressionism, Clyfford Still, and Arshile Gorky. The book also includes essays by Michael E. Shapiro, Joseph Rishel, Andrew Graham-Dixon, Bill Berkson, and Dore Ashton.

From Publishers Weekly:

The late work by American painter Guston (1913-1980) remains unmistakable-his rough, exaggerated reductions of people to piles of shoes, single-eyed heads or looming forearms retain their thickly colored genius as presented in this catalogue, linked to a traveling exhibition that arrives at New York's Metropolitan Museum this fall. Auping (Abstract Expressionism: The Critical Developments) presents 197 illustrations (158 in color) from the early breakthroughs Drawing for Conspirators (a 1930 reflection on lynching), Bombardment (a 1937-1938 response to the Spanish Civil War) and the magisterial WWII-era If This Be Not I to the final works that simultaneously record profound restiveness, humor and ambition with the barest minimum of figuration and cartoonish technique. Essays by scholar Dore Ashton, poet Bill Berkson, Guston himself and others team with the works, which are printed one-to-a-page, without text, along with paintings by such influences as Goya, Mondrian and L‚ger. Guston remarks, "[M]y paintings look more real to me than what is outdoors"; readers of this book will agree.
