About Iosif Iser

  • Iosif Iser (21 May 1881 – 25 April 1958; born and died in Bucharest) was a Romanian painter and graphic artist. Born to a Jewish family, he was initially inspired by Expressionism, creating drawings with thick, unmodulated, lines and steep angles.
  • After studies in Munich and Paris (with, among others, André Derain), Iser worked for the socialist press (Facla and the original version of Adevarul), publishing a large number of caricatures (most of them satirising the Romanian Monarchy).
  • He also started his first series of paintings with Dobrujan themes, usually featuring local Tatar portraits. Around 1920, Iosif Iser adopted a more luminous range of colours, while softening the textures.
  • He continued his "Tatar" themes with his Tataroaica în albastru ("Tatar Woman in Blue") and Famile de tatari ("Tatar Family").
  • He expanded on another series, one that depicted harlequins. In 1955, he was elected a full member of the Romanian Academy.
