This ambiguous-eyed sheep's head serigraph has been created in delicate grey lines, lending expressive tone and shape to the sheep's face and defined shape to the ears and nose. Beneath the head, yellow stones lie casting a slight shadow, with a gentle, rippling shadow behind them. The sheep's head is crowned with flower-like splashes of bright color, bringing life and depth to the piece.
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.
