Israel Paldi (Feldman) (1893 – 1979). One of the great early Israeli masters. Studied at the art academy in Munich; lived in Constantinople. Participated in early Tower of David exhibitions as a rebel student of the Bezalel School. His works are defined by the “orientalism” popular at the time. Work has a tendency towards the primitive and naive, and centered on oriental elements and on School of Paris techniques.
