This rich and comprehensive illustrated account of modern Israel’s culture extends from the pre-state years of Zionist art in the early 20th century up until the present day. Analyzing artistic developments throughout successive periods, Yigal Zalmona describes the many ways in which Israel’s art has been influenced by its social and political history. His look at the big picture goes in parallel with detailed, enlightening descriptions of important artworks from every period. Drawing on the author’s decades of activity in the field of Israeli art, as historian, critic, teacher, and curator, A Century of Israeli Art will be fascinating reading for art-lovers and for all those with an interest in Israel’s cultural history.
