Max Ginsburg


Max Ginsburg is a New York artist whose paintings are extremely realistic in form and content. His paintings explore the range of daily human life, concerned as much with life's ironies and injustices, as with its many joys. Issues of war and peace, racism and social justice have been a major focus in his art. He has exhibited widely and won many awards. In addition to many solo exhibitions, the most recent at Gallery 1199 in New York City in the Fall of 2008, his work has been included in juried and invitational shows such as: the Butler Institute Midyear shows; a National Academy of Design Biennial; the Academy of Arts and Letters (Hassam Competition); the Museum of the City of New York (exhibition of paintings about New York City); the Christophers (on humanism in art); the Art Renewal Center; the Society of Illustrators and the New York Historical Society. His work is also in the collections of museums such as: the New Britain Museum; The Art Renewal Center; Fairleigh Dickinson University and the Society of Illustrators. In September, 2009 Ginsburg will have a Solo Exhibition at the International Peace Museum in Dayton, OH, and in 2010 he will have a Retrospective Exhibition at theButler Institute of American Art in Youngstown, OH. During 1980-2004, he was one of America's foremost illustrators. He taught art for forty years: at the School of Visual Arts, the Art Students League of New York and the High School of Art and Design in NYC. In the last nine years, he has been concentrating on his fine art creating a body of work promoting social realism. Recently, he has been giving 'Painting from Life' workshops and demonstrations, and taught a ' life painting' class at the Art Students League of NY in the summer of 2009. Max Ginsburg was born in Paris, France in 1931. His family moved to Brooklyn, NYC when he was two. He studied at the High School of Music and Art in NYC, Syracuse University (BFA) and the City College of New York (MA). However, his primary art training actually occurred at home with Max's father the portrait painter, Abraham Ginsburg, who taught him how to paint from life in the realistic mode, a skill not being taught in the universities and colleges of art
