The Beginning

Dear Friends & Visitors,

The Jerusalem Studio School concluded its operations in the city of Jerusalem as of academic year 2013 – 14. It is considered by many artists, scholars, curators and museum directors to have profoundly transformed visual, figurative and pictorial culture in Israel from its founding in 1997 throughout its sixteen years, with an impact that extends to this day. The model of the JSS Master Class, as well as other programs, now live on and thrive exclusively in the JSS in Civita Summer Art School & Residency in Italy. I wish to extend my gratitude and appreciation to all the students, friends and supporters that breathed life into this wonderful undertaking. It is my hope we will continue to see and work with some of you in the new and exciting school and artistic community in the magical and legendary town of Civita Castellana, Italy.

Sincerely,

Israel Hershberg

FIELDS OF VISION – LANDSCAPES BY ISRAEL HERSHBERG

THE ISRAEL MUSEUM, JERUSALEM

OPENING RECEPTION: DECEMBER 18TH, 6:30 PM

Focus Gallery in the Edmond and Lily Safra Fine Arts Wing

Curator: Amitai Mendelsohn

The eminent realist painter, Israel Hershberg, takes a long, hard, and unrelenting look at his subject, be it a still life, a portrait, a nude figure, or a landscape. For years he meticulously depicted isolated objects, capturing the effects of light and of time on their mutable surfaces, leaving no detail of texture or composition untended. Over the past decade, Hershberg has turned his gaze on vast open landscapes, each canvas the result of a couple of years of painstaking work. Three such landscapes are presented here: two views from Umbria in Italy and one of Tel Kakun in Israel’s Hefer Valley. Also exhibited is a small study for his planned fourth large-scale landscape.

ישראל הרשברג, גדול ציירי הראליזם בישראל, מתבונן במושא הציור שלו – טבע דומם, דיוקן, עירום אך גם נוף רחב ופתוח – במבט מפוכח, מדוקדק ובלתי מתפשר. אם במשך שנים הוא התמקד באובייקט אחד ותיאר אותו, את מרקמו, את האור המוטל עליו ואת פגעי הזמן הניכרים בו בקומפוזיציה מתוכננת היטב, הרי שבעשור האחרון הוא החל לצייר באותו אופן נופים גדולים וטרח על כל ציור כשנתיים עד שהביאו לכלל סיום. בתצוגה מוצגים שלושת הציורים שיצר בעשור האחרון – שניים מהם צוירו באיטליה, בחבל אומבריה, ואחד בתל קאקון שבעמק חפר – וציור-הכנה אחד המבשר את הציור הגדול הבא שלו. אוצר התערוכה: אמיתי מנדלסון
