Philip Guston's Nile: A Landmark Work in Abstract Expressionism

In 1948, Philip Guston dramatically immersed himself in an entirely new language of abstract painting. The legendary corpus he completed over the next sixteen years positioned him in the foremost rank of the preeminent art movement of the twentieth century, Abstract Expressionism. The masterpiece Nile of 1958 stands at the heart of this esteemed period. This work will be offered in Sotheby's Modern Evening Auction, 17 May 2022.
