Gorson, Aaron Harry

Aaron Harry Gorson was a pioneer landscape painter of industrial scenes. Born in Lithuania, Gorson studied at the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts, in 1894–1896 and 1897–1898, where he studied with Thomas Anshutz. He studied at the Académie Julian, in 1900 and École des Beaux-Arts.
 
Aaron Harry Gorson immigrated to the United States in 1888. After settling in Pittsburgh, Aaron Harry Gorson concentrated on depicting the beauty of urban development, creating glowing, smoky scenes of the smelting and manufacturing mills along the Allegheny and Monongahela Rivers.
 
These urban nocturnes were highly celebrated, and Gorson exhibited at the The Art Institute of Chicago, Corcoran Gallery of Art annuals, National Academy of Design, Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts, and Society of Independent Artists.

Numerous works by the artist have been sold at auction, including 'Portrait of a Steel Mill, Pennsylvania' sold at Christie's New York 'American Art' in 2013 for $100,000.
