Yoseph Zaritsky (1891-1985) was one of the most influential artists of the modern State of Israel, a founder of the New Horizons movement, through which he sought to support and encourage abstract painting. By the 1950’s Zaritsky had entirely abandoned representational art in favor of lyrical abstraction, his canvases displaying thick splashes of color in large balanced compositions - as seen in the present example. <<Provenance: >>Acquired directly from the artist.
