Menashe Kadishman

Menashe Kadishman (1932-2015) was an Israeli sculptor and painter.  Born in Tel Aviv, Kadishman studied with leading Israeli sculptors Moshe Sternschuss in Tel Aviv (1947-1950) and Rudi Lehmann in Jerusalem (1954). From 1959-1960 Kadishman studied at St. Martin’s School in London where he encountered minimalist sculpture. Studying with Anthony Caro, Kadishman became an internationally recognized minimalist and neo-constructivist sculptor. He represented Israel at the Venice Biennale of 1978, where the iconography of sheep first appeared, a nod to his work as a shepherd on a kibbutz during the early 1950s.
