Michael Blackwood, 1981, 58 min.

Narrated by the artist, Philip Guston: A Life Lived was filmed as Guston organized what would be his last exhibition, his 1980 retrospective at SFMOMA. Mixing footage shot in San Francisco and at the artist's Woodstock studio, this film captures Guston at work — and speaking candidly about his philosophy of painting and life. Works by Guston are on view through May 23 in Focus on Artists and beginning June 25 in Calder to Warhol.
