Golub & Spero

Husband-Wife Artists Leon Golub and Nancy Spero

Ihave just begun reading Gerard Marzorati’s biography of artist Leon Golub, A Painter Of Darkness, thanks to a tip by my friend and fellow painter, James Coleman. A short video interview with Golub (January 23, 1922 – August 8, 2004) and be seen here.

Golub was married to and collaborated with the artist Nancy Spero (August 24, 1926 – October 18, 2009). A video interview with Spero can be found here.

Word is Al Pacino is cast as Henri Matisse in a film about the artist’s love for Monique Bourgeois.
