The same year that Maurice Golubov married his wife (Sylvia), was the same period Hitler was given power in Germany. Golubov stated it was the most depressing period in his life. He described this as – “a foreboding of evil times came to mankind”. He was in the midst of a deep spiritual and mental depression, but was pulled out of it by Sylvia’s wonderful music and great nobility of spirit. Maurice Golubov pushed the boundaries of abstraction and figurative work (something he liked to call metaphysical figures). This early ‘Untitled’ Miniature abstraction from 1933 was an escape from the physical world into the metaphysical universe he painted.
The collector of this Miniature Painting will receive a notarized certificate of authenticity from the estate upon purchase.
