The art of Menashe Kadishman (1932-2015) is one of eclectic style with colorful and expressively passionate tones. The consignor shared a close friendship with Kadishman and related that upon being gifted this silkscreen teasingly complained to the artist that he would have preferred to have received a painting - whereupon Kadishman immediately took the lithograph in hand and painted on it additional squares, thus, making for an unusual, multi-media piece. <<Provenance: >>Gift of the artist, 1980.
