Inverleith House is pleased to announce the first major UK solo exhibition in over a decade by Belgian painter Raoul De Keyser (b. Deinze, Belgium, 1930, d. 2012). De Keyser’s paintings combine elements of both abstract expressionism and figuration inspired by the natural world. His unique approach pushed the boundaries of painting and explored its very nature through the lens of everyday experience and this exhibition will present works spanning the breadth of the artist's career. We look forward to welcoming you to the preview on 14th February 12.30 - 3pm, free all welcome.

Philip Guston: Late Paintings
Edited by Paul Nesbitt. Texts by David Anfam, Philip Laratt-Smith, Paul Nesbitt. 

In 1967, Philip Guston (1913 - 80) left New York city for Woodstock where - abandoning the Abstract Expressionism of the previous decades - he revisited the figurative imagery of his youth. Cartoon-like in quality, these paintings began to incorporate motifs familiar to him since childhood, from the hooded figures of Ku Klux Clan, to everyday objects such as lightbulbs, shoes and cigarettes. When these paintings were shown for the first time in 1970, they proved highly controversial, but soon gained critical recognition and are now widely regarded as some of the most compelling and influential works of the late twentieth century. Published from the acclaimed exhibition, Philip Guston: Late Paintings held at Inverleith House (which was featured in Artforum's Top 100 Exhibitions of 2012) this handsome volume includes installation views, colour plates, an illustrated interview, essays and additional plates in both colour and black and white
