Born: 1933, Paris; lives in Jerusalem
Cohen is one of the world’s most famous naïve (not professionally trained) artists. His works have been exhibited at the Jewish Museum in New York and at the Israel Museum in Jerusalem. Cohen’s imagination knows no limits. He has placed Jerusalem in the Alps, he has planes flying around the Tower of Babel, and the canals of Venice may be alive with gondolas carrying palm fronds for Succot.
