Itzchak Tarkay Watercolor

Reclining Nude

Absolutely Lovely!


ItzchakTarkay, born in 1935 on the Yugoslav-Hungarian border, is one of the most important new-classic artists in Europe today. He is a leading representative of a new generation of figurative artists. The inspiration for his work clearly lies with French Impressionism, particularly the paintings of Matisse and the drawing style of Toulouse-Lautrec. Tarkay sums up the characteristics of his model subject without relying on the precise copying of natural forms.

Beautifully framed in wood with matting.

The painting is in great condition and its visible dimensions are 11 1/2" x 8 1/4".
