Curated by the artist's daughter, Musa Mayer, the exhibition consists of almost 50 paintings and drawings from 1950 to 1979, surveying Guston's major developments. On view through July 28, the works span the artist's much lauded abstract paintings and chart his transition into pioneering figuration. Structured loosely by chronology, the exhibition begins on the 16th floor with abstract paintings and a section that denotes the breakthrough into his distinctive late-period figurative style.

The show continues on the 15th floor with major late works positioned alongside a survey of his drawings. A selection of these masterworks was shown in the celebrated Philip Guston and the Poets survey in 2017 at Gallerie dell'Accademia in Venice, which coincided with the 57th Biennale di Venezia.
