About the art in this issue:
Samuel Bak was born in 1933, in Vilna, Poland. His artistic talent was first recognized when he was 9 years of age. At the end of World War II, he was enrolled in painting lessons at the Blocherer School in Munich. He then attended the Bezalel Art School in Jerusalem and later continued his studies in Paris at École des Beaux-Arts. In Rome in 1959, his first exhibition of abstract paintings met with considerable success. In 1961, his work was exhibited at the “Carnegie International” in Pittsburgh, and in 1963, two one-man exhibitions were held at the Jerusalem and Tel Aviv Museums. During 1963-1964 a major change in his art occurred, with a distinct shift from abstract forms to a metaphysical figurative means of expression. Ultimately, this transformation crystallized into his present pictorial language.
Samuel Bak has had solo exhibitions at private galleries in New York, Boston, London, Paris, Berlin, Munich, Tel Aviv, Jerusalem, Zurich, Rome, and other cities around the world. Publications on his work include twelve books, including a monograph titled Between Worlds, and his Painted in Words memoir. He has also been the subject of two documentary films.
