Maurice Golubov (1905-1987), an early pioneer of American Abstract Art in the 20th century, is recognized by the Smithsonian American Art Museum as a Modern Master. He spent most of his career away from celebrity life, quite possibly as a result of fleeing the Russian Pogroms as a boy. He understood a hard earned paycheck was something he could never turn down. By day, he was a professional commercial artist, but by night he was as important and impactful an abstract artist in the 20th century as any other (Robert Motherwell, Ad Reinhardt, Arschille Gorky to name a few). This ‘menial commercial work’ he described later in interviews, helped fine tune his astounding brush skills and brilliant technique. As ideas buzzed in his head all day long, he explored alternate dimensions with his art at night. Secretly, on his commercial jobs, he would paint miniature paintings that had the same detail, context, texture and transcendent coloration of his larger works. While he doesn’t garner the name recognition like many of his peers/friends from the 20th century, his masterful technique and skill are on full display with the featured ‘Miniature Artworks on Paper’ digital exhibition. Golubov needed little more than a 2″ X 4″ canvas and/or paper to display the depths of his imagination and skill that only the abstract masters of the 20th century can convey in their art. The curated collection of ‘Miniature Artworks On Paper’ below can be purchased exclusively through the Golubov Estate. View Artist Bio
