Louisiana welcomes the art of 20th century painter Philip Guston. 

The transition is appropriate: one of the museum’s previous exhibition featured the work of Jackson Pollock, with whom Guston was associated as members of the New York School of painters. 

While the two may have worked alongside one another, throughout his career Guston moved away from the pure abstraction Pollock is so well known for to establish his own, cartoonish form of expressionist painting.
