The following information was submitted in November of 2006 by Maurice Abramson:
Maurice Abramson studied at the National Academy of Design and Arts Students League from 1930 to 1937. Though classically trained, with a rich realistic style that he pursued in oil, drawings and etchings, his style evolved into non-objective works in oil and collage beginning in the 1960's. He was the winner of the Hallgarten Prize in 1937. His work has been exhibited nationally and is a number of private collections as well as the Newark Museum, Newark New Jersey. A three panel mural completed in the mid 30's, under the umbrella of the WPA, is on permanent exhibition at the Bayonne Public Library, Bayonne, NJ. In his later years Mr. Abramson became a goldsmith, creating unique individual designs incorporating an organic style using the lost wax process.
