Theo Tobiasse (1927-2012) was a neighbor of Marc Chagall in St. Paul De Vence.. Tobiasse, master of the Paris School, was born in Jaffa, Israel in 1927 of Lithuanian parents. His father, a Zionist, was a printer and in order to find work, he moved the family to Paris in 1931. Tobiasse has never forgotten his first sight of Paris, the City of Lights.

Théo Tobiasse was a French artist best known for his Expressionist paintings and prints. Portraying women, men, and symbolic iconography with loose brushstrokes and rich colors, Tobiasse's work evokes a Judeo-Christian mysticism akin to renowned French-Russian painter Chagall.
