Maurice Golubov - Self Portrait 1934

“Mr. Golubov acknowledges learning much from Rembrandt, Rubens, Titian and Cezanne, but says that he obtained only confirmation of his own ideas from the In an era which associated geometric form with cleanly painted edges and smooth surfaces. Golubov coupled geometry with a willful painterly gesture. While others sought to establish and support the identity of the picture plane, Golubov fractured it, loaded it with pigment until if offered both interior depths and the richness of its own physical surface. His vivid expressive mark threatens to destroy the very form it creates.”
