Description
   "Jerusalem" lithograph by Gabriel Cohen, French-Israeli artist. Gabriel Cohen has the naive artistís powerful feeling for colour line and texture. He is a world of contrasts and dualism; mixing reality with dreams, East with West, light and shade, past and future, new and old, playfulness and violence, grandeur and humor. Geographical details are lost in the mind and dreams of the artist, and one painting may show different countries or even continents, often covering different time spans.

Gabriel Cohenís works are included in the collections of: The Jewish Musem, NY, Israel Museum, Jerusalem, Tel Aviv Museum, Museum of Modern Art, Haifa; he has held one man shows all over the world, and his works have also sold at Christieís Intíl, and Sothebyís. He is listed in the World Enyclopedia of Naive Art, Harper & Row, Scranton PA, 1985, edited by Otto Bihalji-Merin, noted art historian and critic, amongst the world famous naive painters of today.
