Painting, Smoking, Eating – The Painter Philipp Guston
The extraordinary work of American artist Philip Guston (1913-1980) is a landmark of modern painting. Guston is one of the most discussed painters of his time. Witty, lively, absurd and always on the pulse of their time, his paintings touch deeply - and are more current than ever. "Painting, Smoking, Eating – The Painter Philipp Guston" by Marion Kollbach follows his career spanning half a century, marked by his struggles with the material as well as American society and relentlessly searching for truth to bear witness. It is a personal portrait that offers the opportunity to discover more deeply one of the seminal painters of American modernism through the eyes of his daughter, friends, and contemporary artists.
