9781861897831: Leon Golub: Echoes of the Real, Second Edition

Leon Golub (1922–2004) was a leading advocate of history painting—paintings that depicted narrative scenes drawn from famous moments in history and symbolized the ongoing struggle for power in both social and political relations. In this updated and expanded edition of Leon Golub: Echoes of the Real, Jon Bird examines Golub’s work from his classically influenced early paintings to his later depictions of conflict and masculine aggression and the compelling images of his final decades.

            Despite the critical attention Golub’s 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. Making a case for Golub’s practice of critical realism, which also takes account of the unconscious, Bird focuses on two themes that dominate Golub’s work: how his art presents the body as a sign for social and psychic identity and how his work posits the symbolic expression of social space. Featuring nearly two hundred color plates, Bird’s study is the definitive look at Golub, defining his relationship to modernism and his place among the great artists of the twentieth century.

Book Description Reaktion Books, United Kingdom, 2011. Hardback. Book Condition: New. 2nd Revised edition. Language: English . This book usually ship within 10-15 business days and we will endeavor to dispatch orders quicker than this where possible. Brand New Book. I m trying to invite you into scenes where you might not want to be invited in - Leon Golub Leon Golub (1922-2004) was 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 revised and expanded second edition of Leon Golub: Echoes of the Real, Jon Bird examines the artist s work from the classically influenced early paintings through depictions of conflict and masculine aggression to the compelling images of Golub s last two decades. Despite the widespread critical attention Golub s 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; and part of Jon Bird s examination of Golub s work is to track and define the artist s relationship to modernism. Making a case for the artist 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.
