Avigdor Arikha (1929 Ð 2010) was a Romanian-born French-Israeli painter, draughtsman, printmaker, and art historian. His knowledge and skill of art techniques were aligned with those of another close friend, renowned photographerÊ Henri Cartier-Bresson.Ê He is best known for his portraits, nudes, still lifes, and landscapes, and he illustrated some of the texts of Beckett with whom he and his wife, American poet and writer Anne Atik, maintained a close friendship until the writer's death in 1989. Beckett also contributed introductory and other content to books by and about Arikha's art. Bookseller Inventory # 15088J
