About Leon GolubView Profile »
Born in Chicago in 1922, Golub received his B.A. in Art History from the University of Chicago in 1942. From 1947 to 1949 he studied, under the G.I. Bill, at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. Golub became involved with other painters in Chicago, known as the Monster Roster group. This group believed that painting had relevance to the viewer or society only if it had an observable connection to the external world and to actual events. Golub painted in a unique figural style that drew upon diverse representations of body form including ancient Greek and Roman sculpture, photographs of athletic competitions, gay pornography and journalistic images from the mass media. He compared his painting process to that of sculpture explaining that he often used a meat cleaver employing a method of layering and scraping away paint, sometimes leaving varying amounts of canvas untouched.Interested in consigning works by Leon Golub?
