Mark Warren "Guston Dead" 48" X 58" oil on linen
Philip Guston died in 1980 while enjoying dinner at a neighbor's house. He was eating some dessert when his head just slumped down upon his chest. Guston had a famously bad diet favoring greasy foods like pastrami and was a life long heavy smoker. He suffered several heart attacks before his death at the age of 66. It is hard to imagine him living differently.
