Philip Guston (June 27, 1913 – June 7, 1980)
Emerging from the New York School of Abstraction, Guston’s art showed the transition from Abstract Expressionism into more realistic forms of subject painting. Creating his own style of realism that uses a cartoonish style of figures, Guston’s images were also biographic, with many focusing on the artist’s own life. Guston’s work has been seen as a bridge between the non-objective art of the 1950s and the object-fixated ideas of Pop art that would follow.
Saturday Lectures at LHUCA is an informal conversation over the life and work of contemporary artists. It’s a stress-free opportunity to examine the art and ideas that underlie much of the modern art world. Attendees are encouraged to ask questions and join the conversation.
This event is free to the public.
