75 Works of Art for Israel@75
The image of each artwork is accompanied by a description that addresses the artist and the circumstances of the item's creation, creating a cumulative picture of the development of Israeli art and culture through the decades. As list curator Dr. Susan Nashman Fraiman writes, "This collection, while not a comprehensive survey, comprises a wide range of media and artists, including painting, sculpture and architecture, and reflects the vibrancy and complexity of life in Israel, as well as the rich sources from Jewish and Israeli history that inspired these works. My hope is that the compilation will be at once stimulating and uplifting."
The list can be used to explore how Israelis have responded to experiences such as immigration and war or how they reflect worldwide trends in art and culture. The list provides opportunities to study how the population of the state has changed. It can provide an entry for studying Israel's unsolved issues. Because each item is just a sample of an artist's work and because we provide only the start of biographical sketches of the artists, along with links for context and further study, the list could serve as the basis for students to do biographical projects resulting in written or visual presentations.
