SHALOM OF SAFED- Poland, 1895 – Israel, 1980 “I am a serious man. I do not paint out my imagination.”
Shalom Moskowitz, a Safed laborer, became an artist in the years following the 1948 War of Independence. He began painting at the late age of 55 after working in various craft related fields. As the Safed Artists Colony began to develop in the 1950s, Shalom of Safed, as he became to be known, created vibrant and colorful images of biblical scenes whose “filler” was the actual biblical texts of the Biblical accounts of that particular scene. The artist considered himself a “historical writer” rather than an artist, retelling the stories from Genesis and Exodus. Moskowitz´s work tends to be flat with broad areas of strong, evocative color, with figurative elements are subsumed within a powerful graphic composition. He was a primitive artist who created in the last thirty years of his life a large opus of paintings devoted to the Torah and Jewish life.
