Avigdor Arikha [Artist Biography]  

During the 1950s, Arikha established himself as an abstract painter, but a
change in his view of art, away from abstraction, caused him to spend eight years devoted entirely to drawing and making prints from life.

He returned to painting in 1973 and is known for his incisive figure studies, portraits and still life subjects. He is one of the greatest draughtsmen amongst contemporary artists, and his powerful drawings and prints have extraordinary depth and feeling.

Arikha has work in major museums worldwide; his most recent retrospective exhibitions were are the Scottish National Gallery on Modern Art and the Israel Museum in Jerusalem and Tel Aviv Museum of Art in 1998 and 1999. Since 1972 he has exhibited at the Marlborough Fine Art in London and New York.
