This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Lea Nikel (b.1918 / d.2005)

In 1918, Lea Nikel was born in Zhitomir Ukraine.

Nikel, with her family, immigrated to British Administered Palestine.  She began studying in Tel Aviv in 1935 under painter Chaim Gliksberg.  She continued her studies with Yechezel Streichman and Avigdor Stematsky.  Between the years of 1961 to 1977, Nikel lived in Greenwich Village, Rome and New York before returning to Israel.

At the Chemerinsky Art Gallery in Tel Aviv, Nikel held her first solo exhibition.  In 1957 she had a solo show in Paris at Galerie Colette Allendy.  In 1964, she took part in numerous international group exhibitions, including the Venice Biennale.

Selected Awards Include:
1982, the Dizengoff Prize for Painting.[3]
1995, the Israel Prize, for painting.[4]
1997, made a Chevalier of Arts and Letters by the French Minister of Culture.

In 2005, the Tel Aviv Museum of Art organized a retrospective exhibition of her paintings.  Nikel continued to paint until just a few days before her death in September 2005.
