Hauser & Wirth’s first presentation of the work of Philip Guston on view in New York from April to July 2016 is accompanied by a fully-illustrated catalogue featuring nearly 90 paintings and drawings from the artist’s abstract expressionist period. The exhibition focuses specifically on the period beginning in the late 1950s and spanning nearly a decade until the artist’s return to figuration in the late 1960s.

This publication features an expanded chronology on the artist, which includes archival material, historic installation views, conversations with Guston and other selected texts (by the artist himself) from the exhibition’s time period. The book concludes with a section of 50 of Guston’s ‘pure’ drawings completed in the late 1960s.
