Graham is a Post-doctoral Bioinformatician. He is also a birdwatcher extraordinaire, having seen considerably more varieties than most. It is this instinct to search and record which, I think, explains how he has actually discovered the artist (to the right side of the bloke as you look at it below) by surfing the Moma archive rather than by cheating, as Old Stokie did. However, this is not the point, the point is that he is in the wrong job. He should be an art critic. This is his assessment, as lifted from the thread of comments below:
Actually, I didn’t even read OS’s post. But it did take me hours of trawling through the MoMA on-line catalogue to figure out it was a Guston. That actual ‘drawing’ wasn’t in the catalogue, but he is quite distinctive with lots of pink colours and plenty of shoes in his work. He’s obviously gay and a big fan of *Sex in the City.
*Yeah, I know he’s dead and died before SitC was first shown, but should he still be alive, I’m sure he’d have the full back catalogue.
Philip Guston, Untitled, 1971
