Cate McQuaid writes an obituary for Boston Expressionist painter David Aronson (1923–2015).

McQuaid notes that: "Mr. Aronson’s achingly poetic, often mystical work is in the collections of numerous museums around the world … He created the visual arts program at Boston University, where he taught from 1955 until 1989, and he established the Boston University Art Gallery. 'He had a profound influence on Boston art and why representation keeps its hold here,' said Katherine French, director emerita of Danforth Art [Museum] … Figuration was key for Mr. Aronson and other Boston Expressionists, who shrugged off trendy abstraction to wrestle with moral, spiritual, and psychological conundrums in their paintings."
