“Leon Golub: Live & Die Like a Lion?” at the Block Museum of Art
Though Leon Golub, who died in 2004, lived and worked outside of Chicago for most of his life, he is often claimed as a Chicago artist, having been born and educated here, and involved with the Monster Roster. So it was fitting that this survey of late works, organized by The Drawing Center, made its way to Chicago. The exhibition presented Golub’s departure from large-scale paintings to intimately small but still brazen in their subject matter. The Block complemented the traveling show with prints from Golub’s long career.
