The Rappaport Collection at the Tel Aviv Museum

A new exhibit at the Tel Aviv Museum of Art features works from the Bruce and Ruth Rappaport Collection, which focuses on post-impressionism, intimisme, and the Paris school. Most of the works show a predilection toward themes that center on man and his immediate surroundings – family life, love, and motherhood.  Although most of the artists represented in the collection are French, such as Pierre-Auguste Renoir, the exhibition also includes works by Austrian Egon Schiele, Russians Marc Chagall, Mikhail Larionov, and Natalia Goncharova, and American William Zorach.

Where: Tel Aviv Museum of Art.

Mark Rothko Exhibit in Tel Aviv

The Tel Aviv Museum  of Art is presenting, for the first time in Israel, a retrospective of works by Mark Rothko (1903-1970), one of the pillars of the New York School artists, who were identified in the late 1940s and early 1950s as the painters of abstract expressionism. The works of Tel Aviv-based photographer Barry Frydlender also are on display, providing a glimpse of daily life in Israel from the days of the first initfada to the disengagement from Gaza.
Another new exhibition at the Tel Aviv Museum of Art, “It’s a Small World After All,” was inspired by the 17 miniature rooms from the collections of Helena Rubinstein and was designed to delight children and adults alike.
