Jeffry Cudlin reviews Philip Guston: Roma at The Phillips Collection in Washington D.C on view through May 15, 2011. Cudlin writes: "... Guston’s cartoonish late paintings bear little resemblance to, say, the slick reproductions of consumer-culture detritus offered by Pop artists like Andy Warhol or Roy Lichtenstein. Instead of slickness, Guston created scruffy, crudely brushed images; instead of flatness, he offered layered images showing the artist’s thought process throughout the act of creating."
Not in D.C.? Be sure to check out the Philips Collection Flickr gallery of the show.
