Since the 1870s, over 600 artists have lived, worked or vacationed on the East End of Long Island.You can learn more about Eunice Golden and her work on this website:


“Crucifixion #1” 1969 is reproduced on pages 416-417 in the recently released Rizzoli book (dated November 2010)“Naked: The Nude In America” By Bram Dijkstra.  Read the full text on pages 420 and 428.

"More complex imagery, such as that found in the 1969 painting "Crucifixion #1"... requires a more complex response.We are looking at what we must take to be, given the title, the image of a martyred woman, or perhaps that of a more generalized martyred womanhood, dramatically foreshortened to require us to acknowledge the centrality of the semiabstracted forms of a vagina and breasts but otherwise (apart from having a vaguely cruciform structure) looking more like a landscape than a crucified human being...there is an element of pain in this work, but also a rather formal sense of balance and harmony...

It is particularly surprising how few female artists have even attempted to paint men's genitals, let alone their erections. Eunice Golden is one of a relatively small group who has. A quote from an article she wrote about this subject, which appeared in Wack! Art and the Feminist Revolution (2007), effectively delineates some of the difficulties involved..."

"Crucifixion #1" is widely reproduced and discussed in numerous other publications such as "From the Center: Feminist Essays on Women's Art" and "Art-in America" by Lucy Lippard, and can be viewed on the website of the Brooklyn Museum's, Sackler Center for Feminist Art as well as the artists website.

Recent Award: Guild Hall Museum Members Exhibition April 24- June 5, 2010 BEST ABSTRACT AWARD by Benjamin Genocchio Art Critic for The New York Times for “Stasis #2

Review: "Consider Eunice Golden's "Stasis #2" named Best Abstract. While the style does not overtly resemble Golden's previous pieces where literal fragmentation of images predominates, there's hint, nonetheless, that  this configuration is merely part of a whole entity. It even evokes a sexual connotation consistent with Golden's past works from her feminist period: Golden's close-ups pack a punch."

Guild Hall Museum of East Hampton, NY  recently acquired the painting “Landscape # 160”  1972 for the permanent collection.

Exhibition  opening October 24 through Jan 17 2010.

"Eunice Golden's Landscape #160 also falls into the amazing category due to context. Golden's mixed media work was done in 1972 and represents an early feminist perspective on sexuality (in this case, male sexuality). Its a deserving painting..."
