Happy Hour by Itzchak Tarkay Limited Edition Serigraph
"Happy Hour" by Itzchak Tarkay is a colorful cafe scene that is quite unique and captivating. This limited edition serigraph is number 445/450 and is already custom framed and matted in an ornate gold frame. The piece measures 27" tall and 24" wide. On the back of the piece is a label from Eurodam Holland with a date of 2010 and the address of the original owner in Denton, TX.
Itzchak Tarkay was an Israeli artist who died in 2012 when he was in his seventies. He was born in 1935 in Subotica, on the Yugoslav-Hungarian border. In 1944, Tarkay and his family were confined in a concentration camp until Allied liberation freed them a year later. In 1949, his family emigrated to Israel. Tarkay attended the Bezalel Academy of Art & Design from 1951. He graduated from the Avni Institute of Art and Design in 1956. His work was exhibited at the International Art Expo in New York City in 1986 and 1987. His art is focused on almost dream images of elegant women in classical scenes which draw you into an imaginary world.
This art will fit well with any decor, including modern. A great opportunity to own a special piece at a great price. I have seen other ones in this edition selling for over $1000.
