Product description


Philip Guston first started to produce work under the banner of socially committed surrealism in the 1930s, and by the end of the 1940s he had arrived at abstraction. But in the mid 1960s, Guston returned to a kind of symbolic realism with disturbing power, which determines his image in art history. Focusing not only on his early works, this book also looks at the late, realistic Guston, revealing his artistic development from the late 1940s to the end of the 1970s.
