Born 1935 – Artist Itzhak Tarkay When only nine years old, Tarkay was sent to Mathausen concentration camp by the Nazis. In 1949 he and his family immigrated to Israel and by 1951 he had received a scholarship to the Bezalel Art Academy. Tarkay has achieved recognition as a leading representative of a new generation of figurative artists. The inspiration for Tarkay’s work clearly lies with French Impressionism. While summing up the characteristics of his model subject without relying on the precise copying of natural forms, or the patient assembling of exact detail, Tarkay’s rich tapestry of form and color is achieved through the use of silk-screen painting. Many colors are laid over one another and used to create texture and transparency. Today, Tarkay is considered to be one of the most influential artists of the early 21st Century and has inspired many artists throughout the globe with his deep thought depiction of the different figures. Many writers had written books about Tarkay and Tarkay art.
