Another veteran of the McKee, Philip Guston, joined in 1974, when his shift from Abstract Expressionist to figurative canvases, filled with bean-shaped heads, rogue limbs and light bulbs, was controversial. David and Renée McKee helped steer a reappraisal of Guston’s late work — now revered by artists and critics — after his death in 1980.

News of the gallery’s closing brought out a rush of suitors courting the Guston estate, which has just selected Hauser & Wirth to handle its representation worldwide.
