Set against a bright yellow background, this unique serigraph tells the story of a sheep's pregnancy and birth below a vivid sheep's head. The large central head has been painted in a dazzling array of vibrant colors, with a confetti spray of others spread around it. The sheep's childbearing story is portrayed in contrasting black, and unusually, features one of Kadishman's other popular motifs: the cut-out faces found in some of his installations appears above the left image.
Menashe Kadishman (August 1932 – May 2015) was an Israeli painter and sculptor who won acclaim for his broad portfolio and eclectic style, and is best known for metallic sculptures and colorful sheep paintings. He trained under Israeli sculptors Moshe Sternschuss and Rudi Lehmann before moving to London, where he studied at several prestigious academies under renowned artists. Inspired by the kibbutz work of his youth, Kadishman’s most popular motif is brightly colored sheep’s faces. He won an impressive collection of awards, and exhibited his work across the world for six decades. Kadishman’s works are on public display at galleries across the globe, including several locations in the United States, Costa Rica, Germany, the Netherlands and Japan – and of course in Israel, where a large scale installation is featured at the Yad Vashem Holocaust Museum.
