Last Piece – (Philip Guston) Previous Next


Style: Abstract Expressionism

Date: 1958

Technique: Gouache

Last Piece is not Guston's last Abstract Expressionist painting, but it represents a transition away from the shimmering forms of the early 1950s towards the recognizable motifs of his later, more figurative works. If Buddhism, and concepts of nothingness, had informed his earlier abstractions, this represents a move away from those inspirations.
