Philip Guston & the Poets

Edited with text by Kosme de Barañano.

"Pittore" (1973) is reproduced from 'Philip Guston & the Poets.'

Philip Guston and the Poets explores the artist’s oeuvre in relation to critical literary interpretation.

The book draws parallels between humanist themes reflected in both Guston’s paintings and drawings as well as in the language and prose discerned in five of the 20th century’s most prominent literary figures: D.H. Lawrence, W.B. Yeats, Wallace Stevens, Eugenio Montale and T.S. Eliot. The enormous influence that Italy itself had upon Guston and his work is also examined.

Spanning a 36-year period, Philip Guston and the Poets features approximately 60 major paintings and 25 prominent drawings dating from 1944 through 1980, the last of which were created in the final year of Guston’s life. The monograph also includes an extensive essay from Kosme de Barañano, an internationally respected art historian and Guston scholar.

A contemporary of Jackson Pollock and Willem de Kooning, Philip Guston (1913–80) first came to fame as an Abstract Expressionist. He began reintroducing figurative elements—clumsy hands, cigarettes, light bulbs—into his work in the late 1960s. These late paintings were first exhibited, to savage critical reception, in 1970.

Inquiry and revelation: Philip Guston & the Poets

Inquiry and revelation: Philip Guston & the Poets

“A poem need not have a meaning and like most things in nature often does not have,” Wallace Stevens wrote in 1957. Philip Guston would have agreed, according to Kosme de Barañano, author of Hauser & Wirth’s stellar new Gallerie dell'Accademia di Venezia exhibition catalog, Philip Guston & the Poets. “For Stevens, a poem is an exploration of the world, another form of thinking and knowledge. Similarly for Guston, the image is an inquiry into the capacity for revelation within visual—painterly—language, which in a sense overtakes the painter himself. The artist, whether poet or painter, does not seek to name or describe reality as a geographer or physicist does, but to discover it with or in the work. A poem, like a song from the soul, wants to do the same.” continue to blog

How we love 'Philip Guston & the Poets'

How we love 'Philip Guston & the Poets'

Published to accompany the acclaimed exhibition currently on view in Venice, this superb new monograph from Hauser & Wirth draws connections between Philip Guston's work and the writing of D.H. Lawrence, W.B. Yeats, Wallace Stevens, Eugenio Montale and T.S. Eliot—five literary giants whom the artist admired. “The infinite loveliness of tones, certain signs, certain objects, carried in secret but still radiant with feeling, is what incarnates the poetry of Guston’s last paintings,” curator and editor Kosme de Barañano writes. “Their strange iconography is like a secular reliquary of his emotional life. His pictures, like poems, manage to extract a tempting lyricism from the catalogues of undefined objects, as if charged from within by a powerful underlying vital force waiting to be seen and set free.” continue to blog
