Yehezkel Streichman

Yehezkel Streichman (1993-1906) was a Lithunian- born Israeli painter. He was drawn to art from an early age, studying painting with the Jewish artist Jacob Mesenblium. He immigrated to Israel in 1926 and studied at the Bezalel Academy. In the early 1930s he traveled to Italy and continued his studies in Florence. In the early stages of his artistic career, Streichman’s works focused on traditional themes such as portraits and female nudity. Later, his style became modern and innovative, and was characterized by fierce brush strokes and dark colors. In the 1940's Streichman taught art at the Avni Institute, and later founded a private modern painting school with the artist Avigdor Stematsky. In 1948 he founded with other artists the group New Horizons. In 1941 Streichman was awarded with the Dizengoff prize, and in 1991 he won the Israel Prize for painting.
