David Aronson

Represented by Pucker Gallery since 1976

BORN: 1923 in Shilova, Lithuania
DIED: 2015 in Natick, Massachusetts

David Aronson received an education from the School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, under Karl Zerbe, and began teaching at Boston University in 1955 where he was invited to direct the emerging Fine Art Department. In 1962 Aronson was appointed as a tenured professor and taught up until his retirement in 1989. Aronson daringly combined religious symbolism with figurative expressionism, capturing universal human emotions through his striking representations of Biblical allegories. Some of Aronson's media includes oil pastel, bronze casting, and pencil on paper. Known worldwide as an influential Boston Expressionist, a variety of his work is represented in over forty public collections.
