This is the premier collection of dialogues, talks, and writings by Philip Guston (1913-1980), one of the most intellectually adventurous and poetically gifted of modern painters. Over the course of his life, Guston's wide reading in literature and philosophy deepened his commitment to his art - from his early Abstract Expressionist paintings to his later gritty, intense figurative works. This collection, with many pieces appearing in print for the first time, lets us hear Guston's voice - as the artist delivers a lecture on Renaissance painting, instructs students in a classroom setting, and discusses such artists and writers as Piero della Francesca, de Chirico, Picasso, Kafka, Beckett, and Gogol.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Lovingly compiled" Artforum "This hefty volume is 344 pages of smart art takes (Clark Coolidge, ed.) by the largely self-taught painter who, with pal Jackson Pollock, got expelled from L.A.'s Manual Arts High School in 1929." -- Christopher Knight Los Angeles Times, Culture Watch Blog "This is a book of wisdom, not only for artists but for anyone seeking to learn something from art." The Nation "Expansive" San Francisco Bay Guardian "Until now his influence has been through his art rather than his words. This collection gathers together interviews and studio discussions and commits the artist's words to print. -- Alexander Adams Art Newspaper "[Guston's] voice at its effusive best." Jewish Exponent
