“For nearly 50 years Max Ginsburg has created paintings that explore the human experience, ranging from everyday activities to social injustices.Throughout his career he has maintained a commitment to realism when teachers, galleries, museums and even institutions where he taught often viewed it with contempt.”
~ Naomi Ekerigin, American Artist, December 2010


Max Ginsburg is a New York City artist with a conscience who earned his BFA from Syracuse University. He is regarded as one of the most respected and accomplished contemporary realist painters who paints the provocative issues of our time to comment on issues of class, gender and race.  A Social Realist, he is outraged by war, the hypocrisy of our leaders and the social policies of a government leaving its’ people behind. His concern for social justice makes him a humanist but not a sentimentalist.
