Arbit Blatas and his works have been part of the international art scene for most of the 20th Century.

His creations in painting, sculpture and lithography - remained true to his completely individual Expressionist style throughout his entire career, countless examples of which are found in the world's most prestigious museums, private art collections and public places. Among his most important works are the Holocaust Monuments in Venice, Paris and New York and the unique collection of forty-nine portraits and bronzes of his School of Paris colleagues is now permanently installed in the Museum of the Thirties in Paris. He was named Officier of the Legion of Honor and received numerous honors all over the world.
