Arthur Cohen was an American artist renown for his elegant and modernist paintings of the landscape. Arthur Cohen was born in New York City in the year 1928. Cohen attended Cooper Union College and the Art Student’s League of New York City. The artist was a photographer and printmaker.

Cohen enjoyed painting many landscapes around Manhattan, New York and Provincetown, Massachusetts.

The artist was made a member of the National Academy of Design.

Arthur Cohen passed away in 1912 at the age of 84.

What I enjoy most about Arthur Cohen’s work, it has a vibrancy and life to it since he loved to paint from life. In fact he had rigged his jeep so that it was a makeshift painting studio. The artist had palette that even fit over the steering wheel. Painting from an old jeep the artist was able to capture many moments of the Northeast United States in oils.

Another great artist who paints the Northeast is Rick Fluery. An example of his work is below:
