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. WIKIPEDIA

NO!art has continued way beyond 1964 and also prior to 1958. The "cutting-off" date 1964, as espoused by the art historian is entirely artificial. Such cutting-off dates are common to art historians, done for cataloguing purposes, and what is more, for accreditation of monetary value in the art market. The cutting-off dates also have a devastating effect on the production of artists, who are, by those means, being convinced that what they produce after a cutting-off date is secondary in importance, and do not belong any longer to the "new times". Yet the art market hated it, for practical reasons of creating confusion about monetary value. That is the main and real reason for art historians and critics insisting on this untrue measure. - Boris Lurie, 2003.
