MAIROVICH, ZVI (1909–1974), Israeli painter. Born in Poland, he immigrated to Palestine in 1935, settling in Haifa. In 1947–48 he was a founder member of the New Horizons group. Mairovich arrived at abstractionism quite late. In his expressive compositions, there is always a portrait, a landscape, or a still life. He formed a link between abstract–lyrical painters, and Israel expressionists.
