October 11, 2010

Odessa, Ukraine, 1899 – Tel Aviv, Israel, 1981

Yitzhak Frenkel-Frenel was the great-grandson of the famed Rabbi Levi Yitzchok of Berditchev. He studied at the Art Academy in Odessa. Frenkel moved to Israel in 1919 and established the artists´ cooperative in Jaffa and an artists´ studio in Herzliya. Frenkel studied art in France for five years and returned then to Israel and moved to Safed. He opened the painting studio, the Histadrut School in Tel Aviv and he was also a mentor to many students at the Bezalel Academy of Art and Design. In 1973, a museum of his works was opened at his house in Safed. Frenkel’s paintings favour the abstract contemporary influences he had adopted during his years in Paris, and have a tactile sense of texture and explosive use of color.
