The project is devoted to the issue of Israeli Artists of Czech Origin in the 20th century. Artists born in Bohemia, Moravia and Silesia who in the course of their lives emigrated to Israel remain an important chapter in both Czech and Israeli Art History, still awaiting its compilation and elaboration. Several of them were educated in their mother country and already participated actively in local cultural life. Others were merely born in Czechia and left as children for Israel, where they later received their professional training in Fine Art and became renowned Israeli painters, draughtspersons, graphic artists, photographers, designers and sculptors. The main objective of the project, which is to be carried out by collection, analysis and interpretation of otherwise difficult to access facts, is to present the lives and especially artworks of significant Israeli artists of Czech origin in the context of both Czech and Israeli Art History.
