Baruch Nachshon Paintings


Published on

Baruch Nachshon was born in Haifa in Mandatory Palestine (Israel) in 1939.

Nachshon began painting at an earlyage, He developed his relationship to art
and to artists throughout his youth. During his military service Nachshon herded
flocks for the IDF, filling his life with a love and appreciation for nature. His
work work is filled with the life and imagery he received then. Upon
completing his military service Nachshon was torn between temptation
of an artists life in Paris and his deep love for the land of Israel.
Nachshon Chose Israel, his spiritual home. He continued his art
training with Shlomo Nerani, Cezanne's only pupil, his mentor from
childhood.Nachshon, whom Nerani viewed as his spiritual heir,
was his only student allowed to see the master at work.

Nachshon is a devoted Lubavitch Hassid since being drawn
to the movement by its evocative, spiritual melodies.

In 1965, Nachshon met with his Rebbe, Menachem Mendel
Schneerson in a private session, lasting three hours. The
young artist was able to share with the Rebbe his concerns and
misgivings about his role as a Jewish artist and the conflicts which
confront him. The Rebbe advised Nachshon that for many generations
the art of painting had failed to find its ultimate rectification in holiness,
but that with the help of God he might come to bring about that long
anticipated rectification. The Rebbe then offered to fund Nachshon's
studies in New York on the condition that he would find a program of
study acceptable to Jewish religious values. Despite the difficulty
inherent in such a task, Nachshon gladly received the Rebbe's offer
and devoted himself fully to the celebration of the wisdom of the
Creator through visual art.

  • To the best of my belief the painter has such a wide exposure and imagination and had so much to communicate that he must have some unfinished agends. Pictures should be larger so as to offer a view of details.Thanks for the same reasons - a consistancy added this time.
