Abram Molarsky (American, 1880 - 1955) was an American Impressionist and Post-Impressionist artist, known primarily as a landscape painter and a colorist. His work is characterized by rich hues and strong, textured brushwork.

Born in a Jewish family in Kiev, Russian Empire (now Ukraine), he immigrated with his family to the United States in 1887. In 1889 he began studying painting at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts in Philadelphia. His teachers included William Merritt Chase, Thomas Anshutz and Cecilia Beaux. Abram Molarsky and his younger brother Maurice Molarsky,[4] who was also a student at the Pennsylvania Academy, went to Paris to continue their artistic studies in 1906. Abram returned to Philadelphia in 1908, where he married artist Sarah Ann Shreve.

In 1913, Molarsky had his first solo show at the Doll & Richards Gallery in Boston, where he and his wife had settled. "Molarsky's color is delicate, refined and harmonious," wrote critic William Howe Downes, who had authored books about American painters Winslow Homer and John Singer Sargent.

Throughout his career, Molarsky showed at many galleries and museums, including the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts, the Corcoran Gallery, the National Academy of Design, the Art Institute of Chicago, the Montclair Art Museum and the Newark Museum. In New York, he was represented by the Milch Gallery. In addition to doing his own work, Molarsky taught plein air painting, watercolor and pastel to students in Nutley for many years.
