Art of Older Workers

Artist Max Ferguson's artwork illustrates 50+ workers

Painting of a man in a New York Deli eating a sandwich.

Man in Restaurant, 2005 (oil on panel) by Max Ferguson Private Collection/ The Bridgeman Art Library. This painting is part of a series of paintings of the artist's father.

Renowned artist Max Ferguson talks about his ultra-realist style, his fascination with painting older folks and the rapidly disappearing scenes of New York City.

Ferguson has meticulously created many series of paintings to include iconic subjects such as Coney Island, urban subterranean scenery, and Jewish artisans of the Lower East Side. Regardless of his subject, he painstakingly captures any scene with a finesse reminiscent of Hopper or Vermeer.

"My work is essentially autobiographical," says Ferguson, with his two most frequent models being his father and himself, although almost all of his figures stand very singularly within a scene introspectively looking into the paintings.
