His numerous series of drawings show his return to the human figure and objects; he presents the drawings in series and individually, but they always have a tone of absolutes: hooded figures, shoe soles, irons, buildings, books and so on. These are objects that explored the poetic side of the material world around him, providing some response to current events like the Vietnam War and the social and racial conflicts of the late 1960s and early 1970s, which Guston used to map out his vision of reality.
