Israel Paldi (Feldman)

Born: 1893 - Died: 1979

Paldi was one of the great early Israeli masters. He spent his childhood in Switzerland and came to Palestine in 1909. He studied at the art academy in Munich; lived in Constantinople. He participated in early Tower of David exhibitions as a rebel student of the Bezalel School. His works are defined by the “orientalism” popular at the time. This is a romantic-idealistic view of reality, a tendency towards the primitive and naïve and centered on oriental elements and on School of Paris techniques.
