JASON BERGER (January 22, 1924 – October 17, 2010) was a Boston landscape painter, connected to Boston Expressionism. He painted from nature, en plein air, and used favorite motifs in abstract paintings, referred to as "studio paintings". Landscapes from New England, Europe and Mexico were the inspiration for the motifs in abstracted studio paintings. His approach was direct, his vision clear, his paintings full of structural elegance with the results being a positive and optimistic expression. Renowned for his humor, love of jazz, and his upbeat approach to painting, his work expresses the joy of life and love of place.
