About The Artist:
Moshe Kupferman, painter, born 1926, Poland. 1941 Exiled with his family to camps in the Urals and in Germany. Moshe Kupferman's work links recent lyric abstraction to the modernistic. It is the result of a process beginning with free, uncritical expression bordering on personal confession, and continuing with critical painting, in which the artist "erases" his "confession". The final result testifies to the preceding stages, and to the inherent conflicts in his work, between expressive drama and introspection, form and atmosphere, destruction and construction. The contradictions he succeeded in integrating into his work placed Kupferman in the front ranks of Israeli art.

1973 - Course with Zaretsky and Stematsky
