25.5" by 31.5" framed. Born in Chicago, Illinois, Joseph Golinkin, illustrator and fine art painter, was noted for a wide range of subjects that included sports genre, and landscape scenes of South Florida and other places, polo contests, and genre views of New York City. Much of his work reflected American life in the 1920s and 1930 and depicted speakeasies, dance halls, jazz bands, and street scenes with ordinary people going about their business. He also received Gold and Bronze Olympic medals for excellence in art relating to sport. He began his career when newspapers were still using artists as illustrators, and by the mid-1920s, his work had been extensively reproduced in the New York Times, Vanity Fair, Fortune, Country Life, and other publications. After World War I, he went to New York and attended the Art Students League, but he deliberately did not study in Europe because he was committed to having a uniquely American style. He was a student and friend of Social Realist painter George Luks and earned distinction early in his art career. However, from 1939, he served in the Navy for twenty years, becoming a Rear Admiral, and this was a disruption to his art career. After that period and with a strong background in marine activities, he devoted himself to paintings of ocean racing, especially the America's cup, and many of these pictures were reproduced in the book, Twelve Meter Challenges for the America's Cup, published in 1977 with Norris Hoyt. Golinkin's work celebrates man, particularly man in action, and his polo works depicting the great history of polo at Meadow Brook in the 1930's offers an excellent extraordinary collection, which includes 35 handcolored lithographs, 29 black and white lighographs and 20 watercolors. The works depict the great players of the 1930's---Guest, Hitchcock, Pedley, Balding, Roark, Guinness, Lacey and fieldside views of the 1930 Westchester Cup, the 1930 International Cup at Meadow Brook and the 1938 US Open Finals.
