About

"NYC Subway" American Modernism Scene WPA Mid-Century Realism Cityscape Transit. 26 x 28 inches. Oil on canvas, c. 1940s. Signed lower left. Hand carved frame. Max Arthur Cohn (1903 – 1988) Born in London, England, Cohn became an artist primarily known for scenes of New York City, rural views, and abstract figural compositions. His style has ranged from realism in the 1920s to 1940s to abstraction from the 1950s to 1990s, with some reintroduction in the later years of realism and re-working of earlier subject matter. His primary studio was in New York, where he had became a US citizen, having emigrated to America when he was age two. From 1925 to 1927, he studied at the Art Students League in New York with John Sloan, and in 1927, he attended the Academy Colarossi in Paris. Spending most of his career in New York City, he was a Life Member of the Art Students League. He has written books on silk screen techniques.
