        Est: -

        Aviva Uri (1922-1989), Untitled. Charcoal on paper. Signed. 15X16 cm. Framed, 36X37.5 cm with frame. Minor creases and blemishes. Aviva Uri (1922-1989), painter and graphic artist, native of Safed. Studied painting under Moshe Castel and David Hendler; eventually married the latter. Began exhibiting at various venues already in her early active years, quickly attaining prominence in the local art scene. Awarded the Dizengoff Prize for Painting and Sculpture in 1952. Her work consistently developed over the years, moving progressively from figurative to abstract. A dominant feature of her oeuvre is "[…] delicate sketching, based in its process on building and relieving tension, relaxing the hand and blocking it, [applying] pressure and hovering, imperviousness and airiness, boldness and softness […], a magnetic field, that builds inside itself the nervous currents of life" (Benjamin Tammuz, Dorith LeVite and Gideon Ofrath, "The Story of Art in Israel, " 1980). Many of the artists of the next generation – including Raffi Lavie, Moshe Gershuni, and others – were profoundly influenced by her work. Provenance: The Uzi Agassi Collection.

        Aviva Uri (1922-1989) – Bridge at the Foot of the Carmel – Mixed Media on Paper

        Est: -

        Aviva Uri (1922-1989), Bridge at the Foot of the Carmel. Mixed media on paper. Signed. Approx. 55X64 cm. Framed; not examined outside frame. Aviva Uri (1922-1989), painter, native of Safed. Studied painting under Moshe Castel and David Hendler, and eventually married the latter. She began exhibiting at various venues already in her early active years, quickly attaining prominence in the local art scene as "an innovative artist with a fine, sensitive imprint, originating in the outdoor landscape and advancing into the innermost landscapes" ("The Story of Art in Israel, " 1980 [Hebrew]). Awarded Dizengoff Prize for Painting and Sculpture in 1952. Her work, which started as figurative, transformed over the years to pure abstract. A dominant feature of her oeuvre is "[…] delicate sketching, based in its process on alternately building and relieving tension, relaxing the hand and then blocking it, applying pressure and then hovering, imperviousness and then airiness, boldness and then softness […], a magnetic field, that builds inside itself nervous currents of life" (ibid.). Many of the artists of the next generation – including Raffi Lavie, Moshe Gershuni, and others – were profoundly influenced by work. Provenance: The Rami Cohen Collection. Art collector Rami Cohen (1941-2018), native of Poland, immigrated to Israel with his family in 1948. Educated in Moshav Nahalal, he began painting already in his youth. Served as a soldier in the Israel Defense Forces' standing army, and was decorated for the act of evacuating wounded soldiers under fire. Cohen was injured his right hand in the course of his army service, the injury leaving him disabled and unable to pursue his dream of becoming an artist. Nevertheless, he never lost his love for art, and the adversity he experienced simply led him to change direction from artist to art collector, and to devote much of his strength and wealth toward assembling his collection, leading him to become a passionately involved participant and a dominant influence in a number of different artistic circles. He organized and curated various art exhibitions, including, for example, "Nation Builds Land: Israeli History as Mirrored through Art" (1988) at the Herzliya Museum of Contemporary Art. His collection includes portraits by Yehezkel Streichman and Menashe Kadishman who personally presented them to him as gifts, as a token of their friendship. He similarly established close friendships with many other artists. Ensuring that Israeli art command the respect it deserved was high among his lifelong list of priorities, as was the challenge of enabling artists to thrive and prosper; to that end, he lent his personal assistance to artists seeking to advance their professional careers. He took a special interest in artists such as Michail Grobman, Shmuel Ackerman, and others arriving in Israel from the former Soviet Union, and helped bring them into the public spotlight. Initiated and edited the online database entitled "Omanut Israel" (or "Art 23,") which included articles and media reviews in addition to a great deal of professional material relating to the Israeli art scene, being utilized by professional and government bodies. His collection is multi-faceted and richly diverse, consisting of artworks by both Israeli and non-Israeli artists, representing a broad spectrum of artistic styles, schools, and trends – a collection that reflects significant and fascinating developments in the field of Israeli art over a period of several decades, all from the point of view of a true lover of art.
