Born Yaacov Gipstein in 1928 in Rishon LeZion, Palestine (now Israel), Yaacov Agam’s father was a rabbi and spiritual Kabbalist. He recalls being an inquisitive child, his first real experience with the arts was reading Irving Stone’s novel on Van Gogh, Lust for Life at the age of twelve. Agam embarked on his artistic studies in Jerusalem at the Bezalel Academy. He would later travel to Switzerland to study under the renowned color theorist Johannes Itten at Zürich’s Kunstgewerbe Schule. In 1951, Agam went to Paris and enrolled the Atelier d'art abstrait and at the Académie de la grande chaumière.
