Philip Guston, Afterword by Harry Cooper

In the summer of 1971-two years before Watergate-Richard Nixon was an incumbent fighting to hold on to the presidency. Philip Guston was holed up in Woodstock, New York, still rebounding from the punishing critical response to the debut of his recent figurative work. Inspired in part by the work of his friend Philip Roth, who had just finished Our Gang, Guston began drawing the object of his political angst and despair-Richard Nixon, transformed into the character "Poor Richard."
