1875 Jassy, Romania – 1944 London
Arthur Segal was a painter and theorist, and although he was quite successful, he was always short on money and never managed to find his major breakthrough. He remained an artistic outsider, yet at the same time a central figure in the art scene, especially in Berlin.
Segal died of heart failure following an air raid on London in 1944. Forty-three years later, his unique works were displayed to the general public at comprehensive retrospective exhibitions in Cologne, Berlin, Regensburg, Ascona, and Tel Aviv.
