    Itzchak Tarkay

    Art Brokerage: Itzchak Tarkay Israeli Artist: b. 1935-2012. Tarkay drew upon the entire realm of art history in a body of work that is not only aesthetically agreeable and compositionally seductive, but a cultural phenomenon responsible for countless love letters, innumerable nights of passion and incalculable furtive glances - the very substance of visual poetry. Today's roots as a painter take hold in the decisive years of modern art. The bright colors and flat patterns build on the paths forged by Matisse, Mouly, and the Fauves. Like Picasso and Tobiasse, the sculptural grows stronger than the pictorial. Tarkay constructed a perspective and then took it away. The paintings go through an abstract transformation, the perspective dissolves into colors and shapes, her face remains, and the world reconstructs around her. There is an ancient mystery in the work of Tarkay that must be discovered for oneself. Tarkay dove deep into history, and brought up pearls for our times. The quality of his line was organic, the quality of his woman, his art, was magic. Tarkay died June 4, 2012
