Albert Goldman

July 13, 2010

Alexandria, Egypt, 1922
“I have here a board of canvas on which I mix and then paint, I don´t use a palette. This board of canvas that is enriched with the tones of the last painting will give a very rich background for the next painting.” –Albert Goldman

Albert Goldman is well known for his bucolic, brightly painted scenes of Israel. In 1951, Goldman fled Egypt to Israel after being accused of being a spy for Israel and incurring a brutal beating by a mob. He was a successful hotel manager both in Egypt and Israel and did not give up his hotel management business to focus on art exclusively until 1980. He studied with various artists in Egypt and Israel. Goldman´s paintings have been collected by many well known people throughout the world and are prized for their luminosity and careful composition. He is most well-known for his landscapes of Israel but he also paints Judaic themes and still lifes.
