Leon Golub

Bite Your Tongue (detail), 2001

Description


Ronald Feldman Fine Arts will exhibit paintings and drawings by Leon Golub, one of America’s leading postwar painters. Golub, who died in 2004, explored themes of power and vulnerability, experimenting with paint surfaces that matched the ferocity of his subject matter. The exhibition, the first since his death, features selected works from different periods that have contemporary relevance. Included are paintings from the Gigantomachy, Combat, and Napalm series of the ‘60s as well as some of his last and toughest works from this decade. The Feldman Gallery has also assembled many of the smaller paintings that Golub completed towards the end of his life, which have never been seen before in such a complete group. Alternately titled This Could Be You and We Can Disappear You, many of these paintings were included in his installation at Documenta 11 in 2002.
