How does a painter see the world? The Canadian painter, Philip Guston, (1913-1980), one of the most influential artists of the twentieth century, spoke about art with unparalleled openness and commitment, thus also in the book here, I paint what I want to see - I paint what I want to see.
Touching on works from throughout his career, as well as those of his fellow artists and Renaissance heroes, this selection of Guston's writings, lectures and interviews brings together some of Guston's sharpest reflections on iconography and abstraction, metaphysics and mysticism - and above all, the nature of painting and drawing .
