Mordecai Ardon (1896-1992) was born in 1896 in the small Polish village of Tuchow.
After World War First he left for Paris and like many Russian and Polish artists only got as far as Berlin where he enrolled to a preparatory Bauhaus class. He found a small room in the house of the older Paul Klee, who became a friend to young Ardon. When the Nazis came to power in 1933, he immigrated to Israel. In leaving Europe he not only lost the stimulating human contacts but also the inspiring museums and exhibitions. In addition, the landscape was different, the sky had a blinding light and the sunsets were overwhelmingly colorful.
