To The Morning Star is a painting by the acclaimed Israeli painter, Mordecai Ardon, completed in 1968. Ardon’s works are renowned for their mystical connotations, Jewish symbolism, and enigmatic landscapes. He skilled in classical painting techniques while incorporating modern, expressionistic, and abstract styles.
Ardon studied at the Bauhaus under notable artists such as Klee, Kandinsky, Feininger, and Itten. The artwork has been reproduced as a high-quality art print on canvas.
To The Morning Star depicts a vigorously painted sky with an intense golden color as a focal point that serves as a symbol of hope and enlightenment. The chaotic brushstrokes and dark tones surrounding the golden morning star suggest that its light brings comfort and tranquillity in the uncertain world, evoking the Jewish concept of Tikun Olam (Healing the World).
