BY GABRIEL COHEN
$800

Description : French-Israeli,20th century,
signed bottom right, 87/275,
17.5″ x 24.5″ Gabriel Cohen has the naive artist’s powerful feeling for colour
line and texture. He is a world of contrasts and dualism;
mixing reality with dreams, East with West, light and shade,
past and future, new and old, playfulness and violence, grandeur and humor.
Geographical details are lost in the mind and dreams of the artist, and one painting may show different
countries or even continents, often covering different time spans.Gabriel Cohen’s works are included in the collections of:
The Jewish Museum, NY, Israel Museum, Jerusalem,
Tel Aviv Museum, Museum of Modern Art, Haifa; he has held one man shows all over the world, and his works have
also sold at Christie’s Int™l, and Sotheby’s. He is listed in the World Enyclopedia of Naive Art, Harper & Row,
Scranton PA, 1985, edited by Otto Bihalji-Merin, noted art
historian and critic, amongst the world famous naive
painters of today.
