About the Event

An exhibition of recent work by Guston in the Marlborough Gallery in October 1970 caused an uproar in the New York art scene. With his figurative drawings and paintings he seemed to be rejecting the world of abstract expressionism. Old friends saw this as a betrayal of the "pure" art and all but a few of them broke contact with him. The painter himself saw his return to figurativism as a natural step in his artistic development. The drawings, lithographs and paintings by Philip Guston showing in the JHM's Art Gallery from 17 November 2013 through 2 March 2014 illustrate the start and the course of that process.
