Philip Guston was a Canadian-American artist who worked in various branches of the figurative arts. He was part of the first generation of Abstract Expressionists and later embraced neo-expressionism, creating cartoonish renderings of various personal objects, symbols and situations.
Philip Guston Now aims to be the first major retrospective of the artist’s work in over 15 years, presenting a balanced view of his 50-year career.
