Lot Details

From A Suite of Ten Lithographs.

In the 1960s, the then-abstract painter Philip Guston said, “We are image-makers and image-ridden.” It should be no surprise then that the artist shifted styles in 1970, exhibiting new figurative works at the Marlborough Gallery in New York.

Canadian-American painter Philip Guston (1913-1980) was a prominent member of the NY School of Abstract Expressionists during the 1950s and 60s, later known for his strong figurative work. Guston created this lovely work just two years after painting his social realist pièce de résistance, “Gladiators,” which is housed in the permanent collection of the Museum of Modern Art in New York and is currently on view. By the late forties Guston’s figuration was disappearing and within ten years he was painting purely abstract works, along with the other NY School Abstract Expressionists who exhibited with him at the “9th Street” shows, and later at the Stable Gallery.
