Please note: Artists not classified as American in our database may have limited biographical data compared to the extensive information about American artists.

Amos Yaskil was born in Haifa, Israel in 1935 to a German mother and Polish father.  At the age of 10, he began painting in  what was described as a "wholly adult style," recognized by some critics as sensational. The author Arnold Zweig, having noticed his talent, interviewed Amos at length for a British newspaper.  Superlatives such as "the Mozart-like, wonder-child-of-painting" and "young genius" were used repeatedly to describe the then 13 year-old Yaskil.
