Sad news, Leon Golub dies


I got a note from Tony Seraphin of Seraphin Gallery this morning. I’ll let the dealer who was the artist’s friend speak in his own words:

Last night a true Lion of the art world died at 82, Leon Golub. Leon was a friend and mentor to me and will be sorely missed by myself and those who knew and respected him as the man and as the unique artist he was. Leon never changed course in his beliefs and expressions that have made him an icon. Hopefully the NYT will do justice to his career this week.–Anthony Seraphin

Libby wrote a nice appreciation here about Golub’s work at Seraphin. Golub’s voice of righteous anger against social injustice will be missed.
