Drawing from the imagery of his early work of art and from components in his later drawings, ignoring the existing "coolness" of Minimalism and antiform abstraction, Guston invented for those overdue works a solid of cartoon-like characters to articulate a imaginative and prescient that used to be without delay comedian, crude, and intricate. In The Studio, Guston deals a darkly comedian portrait of the artist as a hooded Ku Klux Klansman, portray a self-portrait. during this concise and generously illustrated booklet, Craig Burnett examines The Studio intimately.
