Elijah Silverman (American, 1910 - 1994) created an enormous body of work throughout his 60-year career as an artist in New York. Silverman studied anatomy, life drawing and painting at the Art Students League under George Bridgman, Alexander Abels, and Vaclav Vytlacil between 1926-1947. Throughout this period he also took lessons from Lucien Bernhard, Arthur Schweider and Hans Hofmann. Early in his career Silverman received the Wanamaker Gold Medal for drawing in 1923 and 1924. He would later receive publication in the New York Sun, New York Times, Art Digest, American Artists Magazine, and Journal of the Print World. Throughout the 1930s to the 1970s, the features of his art were taken from the New York Subway system. Exhibitions include the Montross Gallery, the exhibit Brooklyn Painters and Sculptors at Artists Gallery, several annual exhibitions with the Brooklyn Society of Artists Juried Shows at the Brooklyn Museum, and the Eisenhower Hall West Point-Retrospective in 1993. Posthumous exhibitions were held at the Woodstock School of Art and Belskie Museum.
