Editorial Reviews

From the Inside Flap

"I have never seen a book that deals so extensively and usefully with the aesthetic and critical climate surrounding Guston, the allegorical interpretation of his work, or the role of his Jewishness in his art and thinking. Telling Stories is an original and stimulating contribution."—Clark Coolidge

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Being a long-time Guston fan, I have read about everything that has been published about the artist over the last 20 years. This book, whose title is based on Guston's often-quoted explanation for his shift from abstract to figurative art in the late 1960's ("I was sick of this purity...Wanted to tell stories"), brings new and very interesting insight on the imagery of his late paintings (giant lima-bean heads, hands, shoes, insects roaming in desolate landscapes, hoods piggybacking on clunkers in gloomy cityscapes, etc). There are very interesting lines, especially about the role of Judaism in Guston's art or the significance of the word "allegory". The analysis is based on a careful study of some of his major paintings ("Painting, Eating, Sleeping", "City Limits"...), however, one would have appreciated more illustrations of the works studied in the text, which would have made the reading even more enjoyable.

this reads more like an essay from Art Forum than as an interpretation and explanation of historical events which pushed Guston toward a new expressionism.
