About artist/note:

Christmas Cactus is an exceptional example of Aba Bayefsky’s (1923-2001) expressionist style of painting. Working with emphatic shades of blues and green, Bayefsky’s subject pulsates with energy, the spikey tendrils warning: look but don’t touch.

Provenance:

Private Collection, Toronto
