"The revelations and complexities of mid-twentieth century life have called forth profound feelings of solitude and anxiety. The imagery of man which has emerged from this feeling sometimes shows a new dignity, sometimes despair, but always the uniqueness of man as he confronts his fate. These image-makers take the human situation, indeed the human predicament, rather than formal structure, as their starting point. The existence of man rather than the essence of form is of the greatest concern to them," Dr. Selz says.
Although having been included in this important exhibition Leon Golub and his wife Nancy Spero opted to live in Paris from 1959 through 1964, a move occasioned in part by the belief that Europe would be more receptive to their work dealing overtly with issues of power, sexual and political.
