About the Artist

(1907-1986) Holzman was an Israeli landscape and figurative painter, born in Sambir, Galicia. He immigrated to Israel from Vienna, Austria in 1922. Holzman settled in Tel-Aviv and began working as a house painter with his father.

In 1926, Holzman began private studies under Yitzhak Frenkel at the studio of painting arts of the Histadrut School where he also worked with Mordechai Levanon, Ziona Tajar, Avigdor Stematsky, Yehezkel Streichman, Moshe Castel and Arie Aroch.

In 1929 he made his first of several influential visits to Paris. There he studied at the Academie de la Grande Chaumiere and exhibited frequently.

Holzman was a founding member of the Artists' Quarter in Safed, represented Israel at the 1959 Venice Biennale, and participated in a group exhibition of Israel artists at the opening of the Tel Aviv Museum of Art in 1932. In 1937 he was the first recipient of the Dizengoff Prize, Israel's highest honor for the contributions to the Arts. Holzman also won the Haifa Municipality Prize in 1948 and was awarded the Dizengoff Prize a second time in 1959."
