Mr. Jacob Glushakow, 86, of Mount Washington, died Thursday, Oct. 12, of a respiratory ailment at Sinai Hospital.

He was the husband of the former Rita Novey. His first wife, Eleanor Kemler, died in 1972.

The oldest of 11 children, he was born on the steamship Brandenburg as it crossed the Atlantic from Bremen to Baltimore. His parents left Ukraine days before the outbreak of World War I.

Mr. Glushakow was raised in East Baltimore at Eden and Baltimore streets.

He received his education at City College, Maryland Institute, College of Art, and the Art Students League in New York, where he studied from 1933 to 1936.

He lived in Mount Washington, where he painted in a rustic barn-studio.

His paintings are in the collections of the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, the Baltimore Museum of Art and the Phillips Collection in Washington.

The Jewish Community Center, the Jewish Museum of Maryland and the Washington County Museum of Fine Arts in Hagerstown mounted retrospective exhibitions on his work in the last 12 years.

For many years, he taught art at the Jewish Community Center.

In addition to his wife, he is survived by one daughter, Jane Glushakow of Baltimore; three brothers, Nathan Glushakow of Randallstown, Moses Glushakow of Kent Island, and Leonard Glushakow of Frederick; and five sisters, Anne G. Cohen of Baltimore, Clara Kessler of Haddonfield, N.J., and Naomi Denenberg, Helen Glushakow and Mildred Glushakow, all of Radnor, Pa.
