The Line

by Phillip Guston (1978)

Phillip Guston was one of the most celebrated figures of Abstract Expressionism. In the late sixties, however, he made a radical break from the style that had made him famous. Critics reacted to his new, comic-like paintings with incomprehension. The Line shows the hand of God reaching down and drawing with charcoal on the ground. It is noted for its shock value.

Galatians 5:13

13 For you were called to freedom, brothers and sisters; only do not use your freedom as to indulge the flesh.
