Arthur Segal
A Selection of Works

Arthur Segal (1875 Jassy - 1944 London) is considered the father of the Jewish avant-garde art scene in Romania. After studying in Paris and Italy, he moved to Berlin in 1904 where he exhibited his work together with artists from Die Brucke in Berlin and Der Blaue Reiter in Munich. Though Segal's early work was influenced by Impressionism and Neo-Impressionism, he later on, while living in Switzerland during the WWI, became acquainted with other modern artists such as Hans Arp, Hugo Ball, and Tristan Tzara. Thanks to these connections, he took part in many Dada events.  In 1920, he returned to Berlin. Following a ban on exhibiting his art, Arthur Segal left Germany in 1933 and moved to Mallorca, Spain. Later, he immigrated to London and succeeded in setting up an art school together with his daughter Marianne.  

Arthur Segal died of a heart attack during a German bombardment in London in 1944.
