Join us for a fascinating lecture given by Sophia Berry Lifschitz, curator at the Department of Modern Art at the Tel Aviv Museum of Art. The talk will begin with a short introduction to the history of the Museum with its unique connection to the establishment of the State of Israel. We will continue with a virtual walking tour through the Modern Art galleries focusing on major works by Roy Lichtenstein, Auguste Renoir, Marc Chagall and Gustav Klimt – works that tell the unique story of how the Modern art collection came to be.
The Tel Aviv Museum of Art — Israel’s first art museum, is a leading and influential institution dedicated to the preservation and display of modern and contemporary art from Israel and abroad. Founded in 1932, the Museum is a leading and influential institution dedicated to the preservation and display of modern and contemporary art from Israel and abroad. The Museum’s modern art collection consists mainly of paintings and sculpture from the mid-nineteenth century to the late 1980s. The collection faithfully reflects the various expressions of art created in the second half of the twentieth century – such as works of the European Art Informal school; comprehensive bodies of works by Jean Dubuffet and Alberto Giacometti; works by German artists in the post-war period; and important works by Gerhard Richter and Günther Uecker.
