Illustrated Chronology

Philip Guston was born in Montreal, Quebec in 1913, the seventh child of Ukrainian immigrants. Raised in Los Angeles and largely self-taught, he found inspiration for his early murals in the masters of the Italian Renaissance. Early acclaim as a figurative painter and years spent teaching in the mid-West were followed by a Prix de Rome in 1948-49, after which he moved permanently to New York and turned to abstraction, joining contemporaries Pollock, De Kooning, Kline and Rothko. In the mid-1960's, Guston withdrew from the New York art scene to Woodstock, where he worked on the late figurative paintings for which he is now best known. He died in 1980, weeks after the opening of a major retrospective. Read the complete chronology.
