On the back of the stretcher, the label of the auction house Chayette et Cheval Isaac Lichtenstein was born in 1889 in Łódź, Poland, to a Jewish family. He first studied at the Yuri Pen school in Vitebsk, where Chagall had begun painting the Jewish quarters of the Shtetl. In 1906, he attended the Krakow Academy, then, around 1908-1910, the Bezalel School of Art in Jerusalem, directed by Boris Schatz and Samuel Hirshenberg. He moved to Paris in 1911, then to Israel in 1912/1913, before settling at La Ruche in Paris in 1914. Here he made friends with Jewish artists from Eastern Europe such as Pinchus Krémègne, Henri Epstein, Marek Szwarc and Léon Indenbaum. He was one of the co-founders of "Machmadim", a Jewish art magazine. Shortly after the outbreak of the First World War, Lichtenstein arrived in London with Lazar Berson, who founded the Ben Uri Museum in 1915. Lichtenstein was one of the founding members of the museum. Lichtenstein then moved to New York for the duration of the war, where he contributed to numerous literary and artistic publications. From 1920 onwards, Lichtenstein gravitated between London, Poland, Paris and the United States, where he spent most of his life. He relaunched the Machmadim publishing house, dedicated to the production of Yiddish-language art books. Isaac Lichtenstein painted this self-portrait in a studio in 1923. E.V

Albert RAFOLS CASAMADA (1923-2009) Untitled, 1987 Acrylic on kraft paper, signed and dated lower right Height 25 cm; Width: 27 cm (dimensions when viewed) Born into a family of Catalan painters, Albert Ràfols-Casamada learned drawing from his father. He abandoned his training as an architect to learn painting, and the poems he wrote took on new meaning under his brush. He studied in Paris, and traveled to Holland and Belgium. His work, initially figurative, soon moved towards abstraction, influenced by the works of Nicolas de Staël and Joan Miró. He poetically depicts subjects such as the sea and antiquity, enlivened by vivid colors. Some of his works are held in museums such as the Centre Georges Pompidou in Paris and the Guggenheim Museum in New York.
