BLUMBERG, Ron (born 1908) Complete catalog

Born in Reading, Pennsylvania in 1908, Ron Blumberg began his artistic career in New York City, where he was soon accepted into the group of American artists working there during the 1930's which included Milton Avery, Raphael Soyer and Max Weber. The New York Period paintings and drawings from this period demonstrate Blumberg's masterful ability for recording the urban scene in his own style, reflecting a blend of the innovative art techniques of the day with the artistic values of the realist tradition. Several rare and superlative portraits from Blumberg's earlier Paris and New Orleans years brilliantly reveal the artist's skillful mastery of the art of portraiture and his sensitive and refined approach to the genre. Blumberg's work has been the subject of numerous museum and gallery exhibitions and is presently included in the collections of the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, the Hirschorn Museum in Washington D.C., and the California State Executive Mansion in Sacramento.
