Women in Painting by Israeli Artist Isaac Maimon
The Parisiennes are the inhabitants of the canvases by Isaac Maimon. Their subtle curves, their mysterious smiles and their impeccable fashions are portrayed in his iconic paintings of Parisian cafe society, paintings that are created with masterful lines and inspired strokes of color. “I am inspired by beautiful women and the human form in general,” explains the artist. “I see that there is beauty in every human being, and I am inspired to bring that beauty to my paintings.”
His love for la vie Francais was likely inspired by his French-speaking parents, who supported his artistic ambitions since soon after his birth in Israel in 1951.
The artist studied at the Avni Institute of Fine Art in Tel Aviv. In 1980, he started teaching at the School of Visual Arts in Beer-Sheeba and later that year the Kaye Art Academy. He was also a professor at the Ben-Gurion University in Beer-Sheeba in the late 1980s.
