Albert York (1928–2009) was an American painter. He lived and worked in New York from 1952 until his death in 2009.[1]

York painted the beauty he saw in the world, once telling an interviewer, "I think we live in a Paradise... This is a Garden of Eden."[2]

He has been represented exclusively by Davis & Langdale Company, Inc. in New York since 1963.[3]

Michael Brenson of The New York Times described him as a "reclusive painter of deliberate, dreamlike landscapes, still lifes and portraits."[4]
