Over a forty-five-year period, Gershon Iskowitz’s work reflected the trauma and dramatic changes in his life—from his wartime experiences and Holocaust ordeal to his postwar survival in Europe and immigration to Canada in 1948. By the mid-1950s a newfound freedom enabled him to pursue a self-determined path that led first to his landscape painting and, by 1960, to an individual approach to abstraction that continued through the rest of his career.
