Creating his works mostly in oils and pastels, Moskowitz has always concentrated on architectural themes. Skyscrapers and lighthouses dominate his paintings including the Empire State Building, the World Trade Center, and the Flatiron Building. Other subjects include trees, a smokestack and even "The Thinker" by Rodin. His palette is kept dark and there is little action within the work, the focus is the flat, monolithic shape.
