Biography

Joseph Golinkin’s art career began as a newspaper illustrator. He was later a brilliant painter of sporting scenes, especially boxing matches, including Joe Louis’ rematch against German boxer Max Schmeling in 1938, fox hunts, and America’s Cup races. Many of his paintings show aspects of American life in the 1920s and 30s – dancing, jazz concerts and portraits. He was also a stamp designer. During World War II Golinkin was an admiral in the US Navy, serving as commander of the destroyer USS Hilbert in 1944.

The 1932 work Leg Scissors won the gold medal in Mixed Graphic Arts within the Art Competitions. It was released on 3 August 1932 in the Los Angeles Times under the title Games Foster Competition in Genius. In 1936 he participated with two works in the Berlin Art Competitions.
