Morton Louis Sacks
August 4, 1922 - June 4, 2013
Morton Louis Sacks, June 4, 2013, born August 4, 1922. Raised in Roxbury where he attended Boston Latin, Morton Sacks then attended the Museum School and became a celebrated fine artist as well as an art restorer. He was an instructor at Harvard’s Adams House, and a Professor Emeritus at Boston University. He was married to Ruth Whitman (1922–1999) an American poet, translator, and professor. His paintings are in the tradition of such Expressionists as Max Beckman and Hyman Bloom, and a special collection of his work resides at the Boston Public Library. He taught and mentored hundreds of art students, many of whom went on to establish successful careers as artists. He is survived by three stepchildren, David Houghton, Lee Whitman-Raymond and Rachel Whitman.
Mr. Sacks requested no formal services. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Redwood Public Library in Newport, RI. http://www.redwoodlibrary.org.
