About this artist

Theo Tobiasse lithographs, aquatints & carborundum etchings

Price range: $500-$2500

Theo Tobiasse is an internationally acclaimed artist originally from Israel and brought to Paris during his childhood in 1942. Tobiasse drew on his life experiences including his two years spent in hiding during World War II. Continuing to paint and draw in France throughout the 1950's and 1960's, Tobiasse began to exhibit his work winning numerous prizes and eventually was able to paint full time. Theo expresses his innermost feelings when painting (most happy, some not) Some of the work is so powerful that it inspired a book by Chaim Potok called "Theo Tobiasse: Artist in Exile" which we we also have in the gallery. After traveling extensively throughout the US and Mexico, Tobiasse became influenced by Aztec culture. He continued to work from his studio in France and New York until his death in 2012. We have one of the largest inventories of his signed limited edition lithographs and carborundum etchings. If you're interested in learning more about this artist, please contact us.
