Itzchak Tarkay Serigraph - Busy Café
About this itemOwn a limited edition hand-embellished Tarkay serigraph on canvas, signed by the artist.
This limited edition, signed serigraph with hand embellishment on canvas offers a unique opportunity for any collector. After the edition is created, each work is subtly painted in a different area with different color variations. This makes each work within the edition a unique piece. As a collector you will have the value of an edition work but the look and feel of a unique painting. The image itself is classic Tarkay: a busy café scene with vibrant colors and the incredible multidimensional depth for which Tarkay has become famous.
Tarkay has achieved recognition as a leading representative of a new generation of figurative artists. The inspiration for his work clearly lies with French Impressionism and Post-Impressionism, particularly the color sophistication of Matisse and the drawing style of Toulouse-Lautrec, summing up the characteristics of his model subject without relying on the precise copying of natural forms, or the patient assembling of exact detail. As well as being a painter and watercolorist, Tarkay is a master graphic artist, and his rich tapestry of form and color is achieved primarily through the use of the serigraph. In his serigraphs, many colors are laid over one another and used to create texture and transparency.
After exhibiting both in Israel and abroad, he received recognition at the International Art Expo in New York in 1986 and 1987 for works in several forms of media, including oil, acrylic and watercolor. Today, Tarkay is considered one of the most influential artists of the early 21st Century, and has inspired dozens of artists throughout the world with his contemplative depiction of the female figure. Three hardcover books have been written on Tarkay and his art; the most recent, Tarkay, Profile of an Artist, was published in 1997.
