Biography

John Golding (10 September 1929 – 9 April 2012) was a British artist, art scholar and curator, perhaps best known for his seminal text Cubism: A History and an Analysis, 1907–1914, first published in 1959 and later revised in several subsequent editions.

He taught 'Art of the Modern Period' at the Courtauld Institute of Art from 1959 to 1981 and was elected a Fellow of the British Academy in 1994. As a curator he was known for two important exhibitions mounted at the Tate Gallery in London; "Picasso: Sculptor/Painter" in 1994 and "Mattisse/ Picasso" in 2002–3, which then voyaged on to the Museum of Modern Art in New York City.
