Yitzhak Frenkel- Frenel (1899-1981)

He was born in 1899 in Odessa, Ukraine.  He was a great-grandson of the famed Rabbi Levi Yitzchok of Berditchev.  In 1917, he studied under Aleksandra Ekster at the Art Academy in Odessa.

Frenkel immigrated to Palestine in 1919.  In 1920, he established the artists' cooperative in Jaffa and an artists' studio in Herzliya.  Later that year Frenkel traveled to Paris where he studied at the Ecole des Beaux-Arts and at the Academie de la Grande  at the studios of the sculptor Antoine Bourdelle and painter Henri Matisse.

On his return in 1925, Frankel opened a studio in Tel Aviv. He strove to bring the spirit of Parisian art to Palestine and championed the return to the principles of pure color and compositional arrangements, disconnected from any narrative, thus opposing the provincial trends of the Israeli art world. In 1960, he moved to Safed, bring about the establishment of its famed artist colony.

 One of the most important Jewish artists of the Ecole de Paris, Frenkel’s contemporaries included Chaim Soutine, Marc Chagall, Amedeo Modigliani, Michel Kikoine, Pinchus, Mane Katz, and Jules Pascin.
