A comprehensive survey of Philip Guston's work as a leading figure of the avant-garde from the 1930s to his death in 1980, Philip Guston Retrospective includes over 100 paintings and drawings from different stages of the artist's career. Organized by the Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth, the exhibition follows Guston's movement from figuration to abstraction, as well as his later, more controversial return to figuration and the grand still lifes and landscapes that occupied him throughout the 1970s.

Philip Guston Retrospective was organized by the Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth, Texas, and made possible by The Burnett Foundation and special funding from Gerald L. Lennard. Support for SFMOMA's presentation has been generously provided by Roselyne Chroman Swig.
