Paris, 1950.

Born in Odessa in 1908, Avigdor Stematsky emigrated to Palestine in 1920 whereafter he studied at the Haifa Technion and the Bezalel School of Art. In 1930 he spent a year in Paris studying at the Académie de la Grande Chaumière and Académie Colarossi. Initially influenced by the Ecole de Paris Stematsky turned primarily to late-Cubist abstraction, the present lot of course being an exception. One of the founding father of the Massad art group, he was later affiliated with the "New Horizons" (Ofakim Hadashim) movement which adopted the Lyrical Abstraction style, creating vibrant compositions in bold colors.

Acquired directly from the artist, 1980.

Tel Aviv Museum of Art, 1958. The Jewish Museum, New York, The Batkin Collection of Israeli Art (1985). Catalogue p. 31.
