City Limits

Philip Guston
  • Date: 1969
  • Style: Neo-Expressionism
  • Series: Klansmen
  • Genre: cityscape
  • Media: oil, canvas

In City Limits, Guston's hooded characters squeeze into a car, like clowns, as if to go cause trouble in town. His Klansmen often undertook myriad tasks in his paintings, but more than most, this image reflects an aspect of Guston's original motivation for switching back towards realism: a growing fear at the spread of political disorder and upheaval in America.
