Portrait Leon Golub
LEON GOLUB was born in 1922 in Chicago. After studying art history at the University of Chicago, and art at the Art Institute of Chicago, Golub made a name for himself with politically charged works leading the Windy City’s figurative movement of the era, contrasting with the Abstract Expressionism and Pop Art of the New York art scene. By the end of the 1950s, his paintings had been shown in New York at the Guggenheim Museum, the Museum of Modern Art and the Whitney Museum of American Art. The political content of Golub’s work became increasingly relevant throughout the Civil Rights and anti-Vietnam War movements, in which the artist was actively involved. He lived for a time in Europe, returning in 1964 to live in New York.— Died 2004.  linkWIKIPEDIA
