This event has ended.

Leon Golub: Live & Die Like a Lion? is the first major museum exhibition to focus on the late drawings of the American artist Leon Golub (1922–2004). This presentation features approximately 50 oil stick and ink on Bristol board and vellum drawings made between 1999 and 2004. It also includes Golub's only existent unfinished painting as well as preliminary 'background' drawings and the artist's original source material. Although most often noted as a painter, Golub used drawing as a foundational tool throughout his career. The drawings on view mark a stylistic and thematic shift from a long-term preoccupation with the atrocities of the external world towards a more nuanced personal investigation. The resulting works are candid examples of an aesthetic immediacy and newfound freedom in the artist's late work.
