Multifigure Paintings and Realism

Join Max Ginsburg for a talk and slideshow presentation of some of his paintings showing his expression of social issues, multi-figure paintings, and how he struggled to develop his realism skills during the “modern” 20th Century. Ginsburg will outline how the works of the the Old Masters influenced his own painting.
