Arikha, Avigdor (1929-2010) - 1977 Anne Leaning on a Table (Los Angeles County Museum of Art, USA)

Arikha, Avigdor (1929-2010) - 1977 Anne Leaning on a Table (Los Angeles County Museum of Art, USA)

Oil on canvas; 130.2 x 97 cm.

Avigdor Arikha was a painter, draughtsman, printmaker, and art historian. He was born to German-speaking Jewish parents in Radauti, but grew up in Bukovina, Romania. His family faced forced deportation in 1941 to the Romanian-run concentration camps of Transnistria where his father died. He managed to survive thanks to the drawings he made of deportation scenes, which were shown to delegates of the International Red Cross. As a result, he and his sister were freed and brought to Palestine in 1944. In 1948 he was severely wounded in Israel's War of Independence. From 1946 to 1949, he attended the Bezalel School of Art in Jerusalem; its teaching was based on the Bauhaus methods. In 1949 he was awarded a scholarship which enabled him to study at the Ecole des Beaux Arts in Paris. From 1954 on he resided in Paris.

In the late 1950s, Arikha evolved into abstraction and established himself as an abstract painter, but he eventually came to think of abstraction as a dead end. In 1965 he stopped painting and began drawing, only from life, treating all subjects in a single sitting. Continuing on this path for the next eight years, his activity was confined to drawing and printmaking until late 1973, when he felt an urge to resume painting. He became "perhaps the best painter from life in the last decades of the 20th century", in the words of the obituary in the Economist magazine. His practice thereafter remained to paint directly from the subject in natural light only, using no preliminary drawing, finishing a painting, pastel, print, ink, or drawing in one session. His profound knowledge of art techniques and his masterly draughtsmanship enabled him to abide until the very end of his life by this principle of immediacy, partly inspired by Chinese brush painting. It was a principle he shared with his close friend Henri Cartier-Bresson, to whose "instant decisif" it was analogous. He drew and painted exclusively from life, never from memory or photograph, aiming to depict the truth of what lay before his eyes, at that moment. He is noted for his portraits, nudes, still lifes, and landscapes, rendered realistically and spontaneously, but in their radical spatial composition they clearly bear the lessons of abstraction, and in particular of Mondrian. He also illustrated some of the texts of Samuel Beckett, with whom he maintained a close friendship until the writer's death.

In the words of the art critic Marco Livingstone, Arikha "bridged the modernist avant-garde of pure abstraction with traditions of observational drawing and painting stretching back to the Renaissance and beyond. He was truculently insistent that he was not part of any "return to figuration", but rather had found his own way as "a post-abstract representational artist"."

Arikha painted a number of commissioned portraits, including that of H.M. Queen Elizabeth, the Queen Mother (1983), Lord Home of the Hirsel, former Prime Minister of the United Kingdom (1988), both in the collection of the Scottish National Portrait Gallery, Edinburgh. Other portraits include those of Catherine Deneuve (1990) for the French State, or that of the former Prime Minister Pierre Mauroy for the city of Lille.

As an art historian, Arikha wrote catalogues for exhibitions on Poussin and Ingres for which he was curator at the Musee du Louvre, the Frick Collection of New York, the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, and the Israel Museum in Jerusalem. He has also lectured widely, at Princeton University, at Yale University, at the Frick Collection in New York, at the Prado Museum in Madrid, and at many other venues. Arikha showed frequently and over the decades he had over two dozen solo shows. In 1998 Arikha had a major retrospective at the Israel Museum, Jerusalem (of paintings) and at the Tel Aviv Museum of Art (of prints and drawings), which travelled to Edinburgh's Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art in 1999. From July 2006-January 2007 there was an exhibition at the British Museum of Arikha's bequest to it of one hundred prints and drawings. There was a retrospective of his prints at the Bibliotheque Nationale in Paris in 2008. From June to September 2008 the Thyssen-Bornemisza Museum in Madrid hosted another retrospective exhibition of the artist.

These clients wanted a sleek contemporary space for entertaining, with a stylish water feature. Three separate rendered walls, each with its own stainless steel water chute create a dramatic backdrop to this garden.

Three standard photinias are each underlit to highlight the foliage. The spacious hardwood deck has ample space for a large table and chairs for eating out, and the contemporary planting consists mainly of grasses and other plants with architectural foliage.

The original brickwork behind the three green walls has been painted over to give contrasting texture and an industrial feel to this minimilistic scheme.

Planting includes:

Christmas Berry ‘Red Robin’ (photinia)

Japanese Sedge ‘Evergold’ (carex hachijoensis)
Wood Spurge (euphorbia amygdaloides)

Zabeliana Cherry Laurel (prunus zabeliana)

Chinese Silver Grass ‘Silberfeder’ (miscanthus sinensis)

Verbena 'Bonariensis'

Tree Fern (dicksonia antarctica)
