The Magnes Collection

Berman-Bloch Collection of Israeli Art

The Berman-Bloch collection of Israeli art, donated to The Magnes in 2019, comprises 48 original works (including paintings, drawings, and sculpture) by artists who were active in the formation of a Jewish-Israeli narrative in Mandatory Palestine and in Israel throughout the 20th century, including Mordecai Ardon, Nahum Gutman, Anna Ticho, and Yigal Tumarkin. The collection also includes 36 vintage posters promoting the activities of Israeli art institutions, most notably the Israel Museum, the Tel Aviv Museum, and the Bezalel Academy of Arts and Design, between ca. 1970-1979.
