Leon Golub by Leon Golub( Book )
7 editions published in 2011 in Spanish and English and held by 14 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Leon Golub (1922-2004) was one of postwar America's most politically engaged artists. His frieze-like figurations of human cruelty and the crimes of warfare kept political painting alive throughout the countless changings of the avant garde of the 1960s and 70s, and his vocal ethical stance and intransigent emphasis on content remains refreshing today. Golub addressed events as they unfurled, from Vietnam to South Africa to Iraq and Afghanistan, confronting chilling acts of brutality head-on, in a weathered, scratchy style synthesized from sources as various as Etruscan and Roman art, French history painting, pornography and sports photographs. This attractively designed full Golub overview accompanies a 2011 retrospective exhibition at Reina Sofía. Including 150 color plates, it surveys paintings from the 1950s to the present, giving Golub's heroic life work its full due

Leon Golub : echoes of the real by Jon Bird( Book )
4 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Leon Golub is a leading exponent of history painting - painting as a narrative, symbolic expression of global social and political relations and of the realities of power. In this book, published to accompany a major travelling retrospective exhibition in Ireland, England and the United States, Jon Bird examines the artist's work from the classically influenced early paintings through depictions of conflict and masculine aggression to compelling images of the last two decades. Despite the widespread critical attention his work has received, the range and extent of his practice and its complex interweaving of the iconographic traditions of both high and popular art have not been properly examined. As a history painter, Golub is acutely aware of the antecedents to his own imagery and symbolism: part of Jon Bird's critical project is to track and define the artist's relationship to modernism. Making a case for Golub's practice of 'critical realism' that also takes account of the unconscious, Bird focuses on two themes that dominate Golub's work: how his art figures the body as a sign for social and psychic identity, and what might be termed the symbolic expression of social space."--Jacket
