Philip Guston: Painting Smoking Eating

The work of American painter and printmaker Philip Guston (1913-1980) is the subject of this exhibition at the Louisiana.

Considered one of the most US important painters in the second half of the 20th century, Guston belonged to the New York School which included abstract expressionists such as Jackson Pollock and Willem de Kooning.

This exhibition concentrates on Guston's dramatic transition from abstract expressionism to neo-expressionism in the late 1960s until his death in 1980.

During this later stage of his career, Guston embraced a figurative, almost comic-strip style, depicting personal symbols and objects laced with black humour.

The exhibition comprises 86 paintings and drawings, and follows the Louisiana's show of Guston's works on paper in 2007.

Tues-Fri 11.00-22.00 Sat-Sun 11.00-18.00
