BEN ARONSON: Manhattan to Montauk

BEN ARONSON “Manhattan to Montauk” will be on view July 11 – 26, 2020 at MM FINE ART

Ben Aronson is recognized as one of America’s most respected and evocative painters

of the urban landscape. Aronson’s painterly scenes combine precise realism with

gestural immediacy and Abstract Expressionist energy. His work has become influential

among (and emulated by) many contemporary cityscape painters. His July exhibition

Manhattan to Montauk, celebrates Long Island and its art history and will be on view at

MM Fine Art in Southampton, NY, July 11 – 26, 2020. The exhibition will include both urban cityscapes and the escape “to Long Island as an antidote to New York City. “

Art critics have long been captivated by Aronson’s striking contribution to the tradition

of American painting. In 2007, arts writer, George Tysh noted Aronson’s firm place in art

history – positioning him with Edward Hopper, Charles Sheeler, and Fairfield Porter: “[All

four are] realists whose compositions express an acute awareness of underlying

geometries and forms, and who never forget about the paint in painting.”

Ben Aronson has presented over 30 solo exhibitions in galleries and museums nationally

and was the recipient of the 2006 Childe Hassam Purchase Prize from the American

Academy of Arts and Letters, in New York City. Also, the recipient of several prizes from

the National Academy of Design in New York, Aronson’s paintings are included in the

permanent collections of more than 50 museums, including Boston Museum of Fine Arts;

De Young Museum in San Francisco; Virginia Museum of Fine Arts; Eli & Edythe Broad

Museum, Michigan; Museum of Fine Arts, Houston; Butler Institute of American Art, Ohio;

National Academy Museum, New York; and Suzhou Museum of Art, China.
