Moshe Propes immigrated to Israel from Poland in 1925 finally settling in Kibbutz Ein Hachoresh . He studied under Streichman and Stematsky in the Studia Art School and became part of the Group of Ten, the young opposition to the New Horizons group, who pursued a figurative, local Israeli art. In his work Propes integrated subjects from the kibbutz way of life and an exceptional painterly language which became more and more abstract and geometric and in which he portrayed his figures in closed rectangular areas with strict linear design.
