Shlomo Katz Biography:

Born in Lodz, Poland, Shlomo Katz immigrated to Palestine when he was just 8 years old. Educated in Kibbutz Mishmar Haemek, his talent for drawing was apparent fro the very beginning. As a young man he went to Paris where he studied art at the Ecole de Beaux Arts. While numerous exhibitions in the US and Canada in the early 70s introduced his work of different periods, Katz developed an original technique of oil painting on a gilded metal surface. The result recalls medieval icons on the one hand, and oriental miniatures on the other. However, these ancient resources combine to form a totally modern image with a light humorous touch and a noble character. It took a lot of experimentation to translate these images to the graphic art form. The metallic inks of the golden tones and the importance of absolute registration presented just a part of the challenge, but the Katz serigraphs became the ultimate in modern printmaking. In 1985 Katz was commissioned by the Falcon Foundation to create 9 large paintings for permanent display at the chapel of the United States Air Force Academy in Colorado Springs, Colorado. These paintings are considered today a National Treasure and are the subject of a book of a 120 pages. Shortly after returning from a 7 city exhibition tour in Japan, Shlomo Katz passed away in March of 1992.

David Schneuer Biography:

One of the great painters of this century, David Schneuer was probably the last German post impressionist. Growing up in Germany in the beginning of the century left its mark on all his work as did living in Paris for some time as a young man. Doing stage design and posters for the Munich Theatre was the continuation of his career. In 1933 Schneuer immigrated to Palestine and became one of the founders of the advertising industry. Till the end of his life, his work was a kind of nostalgia for Europe of the 1920's and early 30's. Following Schneuer's lead, many contemporary artists started to paint and to print art that very closely resembled Schneuer's images.
