Emmanuel Mané-Katz is known for his gestural paintings of Jewish life, including rabbis, musicians, and scenes of the Eastern European shtetls. Born in Ukraine to an Orthodox Jewish family, Mané-Katz moved to Paris in 1913 to attend the École des Beaux-Arts. He befriended artists like Pablo Picasso and Chaïm Soutine and was associated with the Jewish School of Paris. In France, he turned from classical, somber renditions of themes like landscapes toward his signature style of undiluted colors and rhythmic brushstrokes. After volunteering for the French army and becoming a prisoner of war during World War II, he fled to the United States. Mané-Katz first traveled to Jerusalem in 1928 and lived between France and Israel after the war. His works are included in the collections of the Museum of Modern Art and the Tate.
