Born in 1920 - Israel
Yosl Bergner was born in Vienna, Austria in 1920 and grew up in Warsaw, Poland. He lives and works in Israel since 1948.
Yosl Bergner studied painting besides the artist Hirsch Altman and at the National Gallery of Victoria Art School in Melbourne. He was selected to represent Israel at the Venice Biennial and the Sao Paulo Biennial several times.
Besides his practice of painting, the artist has designed several sceneries and costumes for the theater, particularly for the plays of Nissim Aloni's. Yosl Bergner has illustrated several books as well. The highlight of his paintings is the allegory of his work. He uses kitchen tools such as crushed pots, oil lamps and cracked jars and he anthropomorphizes them. These ancient instruments symbolize the distorted and poor world during the wars, secrets and darkness.
Yosl Bergner has received several awards such as the Dizengoff award in 1956 and the Israel prize for painting in 1980.
