Biography from Leonard Davenport Fine Arts / LSDArt:
Please note: Artists not classified as American in our database may have limited biographical data compared to the extensive information about American artists.

Mordechai Levanon was born in Transylvania, Romania, immigrated to Israel in 1921.  He studied at the Bezalel Art Academy and painting with Yitzhak Frenkel at Histadrut Studio of Painting.

Levanon is one of the founding fathers of the Jewish School of Paris artist and Israeli art. Like many artists in his time, he was enchanted  by Eretz Israel's special light. This light and its play of color always stayed with him and his art works.

He settled in Jerusalem.  In 1937 Levanon held his first one-man exhibition in Tel Aviv and  from that year on, he took part in almost every annual collective exhibition of Israeli artists.  He won the Israel-Brazil Prize at the San Paolo Biennale, was a three winner of the annual Dizengoff Trite Prize, the Herman Struck Prize, and a two time winner of the Jerusalem Prize. He represented Israel three times at the Venice Biennale.

His works were exhibited in all Israeli museums and form part of their permanent collections, as well as of New York’s MOMA, the President’s Palace in Jerusalem, and of the Italian State Museum in Rome.
