Guston in Rome

Greg Lindquist visits the exhibition Philip Guston: Roma at the Phillips Collection through May 15, 2011.  Lindquist writes: "We see Guston developing his visual vocabulary and palette... [and] distilling lessons in overlapping form and space... What is most fascinating about this body of work is how worlds of antiquity and the contemporary meld through Guston’s touch and organization of objects in space. Often, these ambiguous images feel at once like landscapes and still lives."
