PHILIP GUSTON: PAINTER 1957-1967. Paul Schimmel. Hauser & Wirth, New York, 2016. Distributed by Ram Publications, Santa Monica. 120 pp. 29 x 24 cm. ISBN 9783952446126 In English.
Publisher's description: Paintings and drawings from Philip Guston's abstract expressionist period, beginning in the late 1950s and spanning nearly a decade until the artist's return to figuration in the late 1960s, are fully documented in this handsomely designed hardcover monograph. Featured are 90 black-and-white and color illustrations, an expanded chronology on the artist that is rich with archival material, historic installation views, conversations with Guston and 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. Comprehensively and thoughtfully curated by noted scholar/curator Paul Schimmel, whose catalog essay provides a historical overview of this pivotal time in the American postwar abstract expressionist art movement, as well as the artists, curators and dealers who made it vibrant. Not since Guston's 1966 solo exhibition at the NY Jewish Museum has such an extensive overview of this early work been critically investigated.
