Yehoshua Grossbard was an Israeli painter.
Born in 1900, Serock, Poland.
Died 1992, Pardes Hanna, Israel.

Grossbard painted manly urban landscapes, focusing on his home town of Haifa. He developed an architectural-geometric style, unsentimental in its nature. These are Mediterranean paintings: the colors are bright, and the dominant yellow comes from sunlight. Grossbard's made the places he painted poetic - a picturesque "nowhere". His paintings are intimate, modest and optimistic.

Grossbard participated in group exhibitions and had solo exhibitions in many galleries in Israel.
In 1974, the Haifa Museum of Modern Art presented a retrospective exhibition in his honor, and in 1999 the museum presented another solo exhibition of his works.

Grossbard was awarded the Malach Prize, Ein Hod in 1958 and the Herman Struck Prize in 1965.
