Vilna born Moshe Raviv (original name Vorobeichic) studied painting at the Bauhaus School in Weimar, taking courses along with such famed artists as Paul Klee, Wassily Kandinsky and Joseph Albers. Vorobeichic also created avant-garde photo-montages under the pseudonym “Moi-Ver.” Adopting Zionism in 1934 he migrated to Palestine where he changed his name to “Raviv.” Along with Reuven Rubin he co-founded the Artists’ Colony of Safed.
