5 hours 10 min ago The Art Institute of Chicago After establishing himself in the 1950s as an Abstract Expressionist painter, Philip Guston baffled critics with a move toward simpler, cartoonish images, as seen in this piece, Couple in Bed. Here the artist can be seen holding his paintbrushes as tightly as he does his wife, Musa, who in May of 1977 suffered a series of debilitating strokes.
If Couple in Bed is one of your favorite American works of art, share it with the country by voting for it to be displayed on billboards nationwide. #ArtEverywhereUS
