Max Ferguson | Cityscapes, Interiors and Figures Painted in Oil

A New Yorker by birth, Max Ferguson comes from a long line of lawyers—and a father whose hobby was painting. Max returned the favor by making his father his principal model. The younger Ferguson studied animation at New York University, changing his major to painting after he spent his junior year abroad at the Gerrit Rietveld Academie in Amsterdam. Upon his return to New York University, he simply showed up at the office of H.W. Janson, the famed author of what was for many years the accepted text for Art History 101, History of Art (1962), and Janson purchased one of Ferguson’s cityscapes. Proving Janson’s assessment right, Ferguson today has an appreciative cadre of collectors. His works hang in numerous museums, including the Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art in Arkansas, which is scheduled to open in November. He’s represented by the Gallery Henoch in Manhattan.
