Tel Aviv Museum of Art
Tour with the curator
Sophia Berry Lifschitz, Curator of Modern Art, Tel Aviv Museum of Art, will talk about the museum’s permanent collection. The tour will include highlights from the museum's collection of works gifted by collector and patron of the arts Peggy Guggenheim.
Tel Aviv Museum of Art, Israel’s first art museum, founded in 1932, 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 Informel 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. American art of the 1950s was added to the collection in real time, thanks to a donation of 36 works by Peggy Guggenheim.
