Nationality: British
Movement:
Media: Painting

Biography:
Leon Kossoff was born in the East Side of London to Russian-Jewish parents. He took evening classes under David Bomberg from 1950 to 1952. He was also influenced by another one of his teacher’s students, Franck Auerbach. Both young artists dealt with similar emotions and subject matter in their work and employed heavy impasto in their paintings. Kossoff chose his subject matter mostly from the area of London where he was born. It took awhile for his work to gain momentum but in 1996, a retrospective of his career was held a the Tate Gallery.
