Mordechai Ardon

Mordechai Ardon (1896-1992) was a Polish-born Israeli painter who immigrated to Israel in 1933. In the early 1920's he studied at the Bauhaus school in Germany alongside well established artists such as Paul Klee and Wassily Kandinsky, whose influence on his work was evident throughout his artistic career. Ardon was a Bezalel Academy graduate, and in 1940 he was appointed its director. Between 1952 and 1962 he was the artistic advisor of the Ministry of Education and Culture. Ardon was awarded the UNESCO prize (1954) and the Israel Prize (1964). His works are characterized by bright textures of color and symbolic forms, which allude to religious values and mysticism.
