M OSHE CASTEL was born in 1909 in Jerusalem to a Sephardic family originating in Castille. At the age of 13 he entered the Bezalel School of Art, which he finished in 1925 at the age of 16. Feeling that he was not accomplished enough and following the current steps of other Israeli artists, he moved to Paris in 1927. There he studied in the Academie Julien and assiduously frequented the Louvre Museum, studying the technique of the Great Masters of the past- Titian, Delacroix and Courbet. Few pictures have remained from his first years in Paris. Most of them were lost when the artist’s pictures were taken from his atelier while he was on a trip to Israel in 1933 with the first exhibition of Ecole de Paris paintings. The few that remained were sold at a small London exhibition financed by his brother Joseph in 1928. We have before us the rare occasion of seeing in auction three of the works left in France which were recently found. The two smaller works on auction dating from the late 1920's are childhood recollections from Castel’s early life in his Sephardic family in Jerusalem. The portrait of a woman, possibly Castel’s aunt from his mother’s side, is the more mature of the two paintings. Shown in a typical Sephardic red head-wear and a green blouse held by a pin, the artist depicts a lively young woman. The head-wear, which indicates that before us is a married woman, and the hands joined before the sitter are symbols of humility. But it is the underlying message of his love for Israel and his longing for his family that strike a sympasizing chord with us. The slightly smaller portrait of a young child is freer in expression. It portrays a smiling child with a Turkish tarbush. The long payot and the cut hair show that the child is probably the right age to go to study the Bible at the Cheder but his captivating languid large brown eyes still echo of childish pranks. Painted shortly after subtracting himself from the rigid Bezalel School Academism and becoming an independent artist, these two earlier works show a freshness and naiveté typical of Israeli art of the 1920's. These are in line with works of artists such as Tziona Tagger, Pichas Litvinovsky and Israel Paldi. The third work on auction is a beautiful landscape of Safed. The painting which should be dated to 1932, due to the fact that it shows the results of Castel’s trip to Italy in that year, is a masterly painting by the artist. Here we see the artist at full bloom absorbing both the lesson of the Italian primitives in the oblong figures and the fresh orange-red color as well of the art of the French artist Maurice Utrillo. Castel takes from the latter the street setting where couples walk together talking or interact, but the overall flavor is definitely oriental. A woman with a basket on her head coming back from the market meets a Yemenite man with baggy Turkish trousers. The figures are set before low rusticated Arab walls behind which we can explore small gardens and even an orchard at a distance. But it is the contrast between the strong Israeli light caressing the white washed houses and the texture of the rough-looking walls of the buildings that gives us the true atmosphere of Safed in summer. Oriental figures, blooming gardens and orchards and old Medieval houses all blend together in what the researcher Gidon Ofrat called a Persian tapestry of light and color. Oren Migdal

The auction will be conducted by the auctioneer's representatives of Matsart Auctioneers & Appraisers (Matsart). Unless otherwise specified, Matsart is acting as an agent on behalf of the seller. The contract for the sale of the property is between the seller and the buyer. The auctioneer has sole discretion and authority at any time to determine the winner in the auction or to withdraw any lot or lots from the sale or to re-offer and resell any lot, all according to his sole judgment, including yet not limited to prior to the auction, during the auction, and following the auction. Purchasing an item is legitimate only when the auctioneer lowers his hammer and announces a card number of a participant in the room or a bidder in writing or a bidder by phone or by internet. Notwithstanding the above, it is the auctioneer’s sole judgment to reopen a lot and/or cancel a sale. The auctioneer reserves the right to reject any bid. The prices quoted in the catalogue are estimate prices of the lots. These prices are estimates, normally different from the minimum prices. A sale will be only at the minimum price or above, all according to the auctioneer’s discretion. If, in the auctioneer’s opinion, any opening bid is below the reserve of the lot, he may withdraw the lot from the sale. Following an opening bid, the auctioneer may reject further bids if, in his opinion the advance is not sufficient. All lots are sold "as is". Neither Matsart nor the seller makes any express or implied warranty of any kind with respect to the description, attribution, literature, former owners, period, provenance, condition and/or frame concerning the lots offered in the auction. No statement in the catalogue or in the sale or the invoice or the bill of sale given to purchasers shall be deemed such a warranty. All bidders are responsible to examine the work and its condition and its authenticity prior to bidding. It is important and recommended to examine all items before bidding. The details of this exhibition are published in the catalogue. Condition reports and catalog entries are to be used as guidance only by the buyers. Prior to bidding, bidders should personally inspect the lots. Following the auction, if the bidder has questions regarding authenticity and wishes to show the work to a recognized expert (acceptable to Matsart), the item must be paid for in full and the buyer must arrange (at his expense) to show the work to the expert and receive a response within 30 days following date of sale. Prior arrangements must be made with Matsart to allow that payment be withheld from the seller. Should the expert declare that the painting is not authentic, Matsart will refund money paid for lot (less expenses) under the condition that confirmation of lack of authenticity is received within 30 days of sale. To remove all doubt, following 30 days, Matsart will have no responsibility. All potential bidders must register prior to bidding by completing all necessary registration forms and provide proper identification. Matsart reserves the right to request bank and/or other financial references. Upon registration, potential bidders will receive a paddle number, which serves as identification in the event that the participant is the successful high bidder of any lot in the sale. The purchaser, whether present in the auction room at the time of sale or bidding by writing or by phone, whether for himself or for any third party, will be irrevocably committed to pay for the article and to accept it. The auctioneer and/or Matsart may take any measures necessary for realizing the commitment, i.e. to force the winner to pay expenses, bank interest and/or inflation index appropriation, to sue compensations, to withhold the articles that the buyer purchased or left in company's hold, to deduct the debt from any sum of money that Matsart owes the winner. Matsart accepts absentee bids with no additional fee. Attached herewith a form enabling buyers unable to be present at the time of auction to make their bids. By this form potential buyers authorize Matsart representatives to represent them during the auction in the interest of purchasing and/or to contact them by telephone to allow to bid during the auction by telephone. This service is given at no additional fee, beyond the buyer’s premium as stated below. A bid cannot be revoked in any form and is an obligation for purchasing. We will take all reasonable measures to process the bid, yet take no liability in the event that for any reason a bid was not processed. Bids can be delivered via fax: +972-2-6257779 or by email: bids@matsart.net. Auctions are conducted in U.S. dollars. Payment is to be made in US$. However, payment can be accepted in Euros or in N.I.S., according to the high rate of exchange published by Bank Leumi Le'israel on the day of the sale, or the day of the payment, the higher of the two. In many instances, works may not be present in the saleroom at time of sale and may be digitally exhibited. Discrepencies may occur. Matsart accepts no liability for such errors. Unless otherwise indicated, all lots are offered subject to a reserve price. This reserve will not exceed the low estimate. The reserve price is the minimum price for which the item will sell and is confidential. The auctioneer may open bidding on any lot by placing a bid on behalf of the seller. The auctioneer may further bid on behalf of the seller, up to the amount of the reserve by placing successive or consecutive bids for a lot, or by placing bids in response to other bidders. The highest bidder acknowledged by the auctioneer shall be the buyer (as above), from among the bidders present in the auction room at the time of sale or the bidders in writing or by phone. The bidders in writing or by phone authorize Matsart representatives to represent them and to bid on their behalf at the time of auction in the interest of purchasing. All lots must be paid for and collected not later than 3 business days following the auction.
