Yossi Stern

Yossi Stern, known as “the Painter of Jerusalem” and one of Israel’s foremost artists, died at the age of 69. Stern, a Holocaust survivor from Hungary, put special emphasis in his drawings on depicting the “new Jew,” a sabra, wearing shorts, sandals and looking tough. But along with his popular drawings, particularly for children books and the press, Stern slowly earned a place as a serious painter whose work was known worldwide. He was also a popular art teacher at the Bezalel Arts Academy. Stern died after a month of hospitalization. Following a second heart attack, he sank into a coma, from which he did not wake.
