Samuel Bak was Born in 1933 in Poland. Bak studied painting in Munich and painted “A Mother and Son” in 1947, which evokes some of his dark memories of the Holocaust and escape from Soviet occupied Poland. In 1948 he immigrated to Israel and four years later studied art at the Bezalel Academy of Art and Design in Jerusalem. From 1956 to 1959, he lived in Paris and studied at the École des Beaux-Arts. In 1956 he received the first prize of the American-Israeli Cultural Foundation. In 1993 he moved to the United States.
His works are on permanent display at Pucker Gallery in Boston. Bak’s paintings are exhibited in International museums and galleries.
