Abramovitz was one of the most ardent social realists during the Great Depression, doing almost 20 works for the Federal Arts Project from 1935-1939. In the early 1930s he documented the Moscow Subway construction until completion, then returned to the United States, living in East Meadow, until his death in 1963.
