Philip Guston

Robert Storr


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. Robert Storr maps Guston’s career, providing an accessible and revealing analysis of his work. 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 Extensively illustrated with all the artist’s best-known works, many lesser-known and previously unpublished, the book will also include photographs of the artist at home, at work, at exhibitions and with other artists.
