Pinchas Shaar (1923-1996) Polish/Jewish artist.

Few artists have the ability to be recognizable in their work, and yet continue to amaze you every time you look at their work, but Pinchas Shaar is such an artist.

Finding real unaltered prints or genuine paintings can be a chore, but we have a nice copy of the 1983 monograph of Pinchas Shaar, written by Marcel Jole and Moshe Lazar in a fair dust jacket shown above. On the opening page a nice 1983 dedication (not shown here) and a small drawing done by the artist, illustrated below.
