Moshe Rosenthalis, was born in Lithuania in 1922. He immigrated to Israel in 1958.
A master of color, Rosenthalis transforms shapes and lines into dynamic compositions of accord and tempo.
His technique using swatches of color fields reflect and echo off each other and are formed by the play of gradation in the width of lines ranging from thin to thick.
Frequent themes include landscapes, seascapes, and figures.
Woman playing musical instruments are also a requiring theme.
The paintings are spirited and vivacious.
His work is internationally exhibited, collected, and published.
He died in 2008.
