Joseph Kossonogi, also known as Yosef Kossonogi, was born in Budapest, Hungary in 1908. He studied at the Berlin Academy of Art, in France, in Italy, in Spain, and in the Netherlands. He immigrated to Tel-Aviv in 1926 and he joined the artist colony in Safed where he settled in 1956. He died in 1981.

He paints with romantic watercolors rich in brown, green, and blue staining. He focuses on light and color and uses only few colors to make his paintings look almost monochromatic, but from these colors he builds many shades and hues that offer a rich appeal. Kossonogi was considered a master of the aquarelle medium. Aquarelle is a technique of painting with transparent water colors, pigments are diluted to create a range of tones and effects, known since ancient times but popular in Europe since the 18th and 19th centuries.

Joseph Kossonogi's exhibited his artwork internationally over his life and he received numerous awards for his masterpieces. Many of his artworks have been acquired by museums and private collections and his artworks remain in demand all over the world.
