Veiled Evil: Uncovering Guston’s Hooded Figures

New York | 19 May

Philip Guston's Remorse boldly exemplifies the daring innovation and radical iconography of the artist's celebrated late corpus of figure paintings. An exceptional early example of this later body of work, Remorse was first exhibited in the 1970 Marlborough Gallery exhibition Philip Guston Recent Paintings, during which Guston first unveiled his now canonical paintings of hooded figures. The piece will be offered in Sotheby's Contemporary Evening Auction, 19 May 2022.
