Avigdor Arikha was born in 1929 in Radauti, Romania to German Jewish parents. He was rescued from a Nazi labour camp where he was imprisoned for three years, when his drawings of deportation scenes were noticed by the Red Cross. He was helped to emigrate to Israel with his sister in 1944. On arrival in Israel, Arikha lived in a kibbutz near Jerusalem and studied at the Bezalel School of Art in Jerusalem.
