Israeli Artists Show Contrast in Style

From now until April 30,
Graphica Gallery, on Warren Ave.,
will be the home for an exhibit of
three contemporary Israeli artists.
Entitled "The Lion and the
Stone," the exhibit includes 10
woodcuts by Jakob Steinhardt, nine
lithographs by Yosl Bergner and
eleven lithographs by Pinkas Lit-
vinovsky. While each evolved a
similar thesis for their works —
that of the paradoxical and absurd
in life—their diverse and resulting
modes of representation present a
significant and interesting con-
The gayest, most colorful works
are those done by Litvinovsky.

Works of 3 Israelis
at Graphic Gallery

"The Lion and the Stone" is the
title of an exhibition of contempo-
rary Israeli woodcuts and litho-
graphs now showing at Graphica
Gallery, 109 W. Warren.
It will run through April 30.
Being shown are 10 woodcuts,
all with Biblical themes, by Jakob
Steinhardt; nine hand-colored litho-
graphs by Yosl Bergner; and 11
lithographs by Pinkas Litvinovsky.
Steinhardt, '79, who hails from
Germany, was a student of Henri
Matisse and for several years
after 1933 he taught at and di-
rected the First International
Prize for Graphic Arts; and has
won many prizes since then, in-
cluding the Arte Sacra—Prize of
the First International Biennale
of Religious Art at Trieste. Bible
and Jewish lore and tradition
recur in his work.
Bergner, born in Vienna in 1930,
spent his childhood in P o 1 a n d,
studied in Australia and emigrated
to Israel in 1951. In Tel Aviv, he
is active as painter, draughtsman,
illustrator and stage designer. His
work has been shown in Australia,
Israel, Europe and the United
Litvinovsky, 72, a native of the
Ukraine, studied in Russia and
the Bezalel Art School, where he
moved prior to World War I. He
is best known as a portrait painter
in Jerusalem.

Radomer to Make Plans

versary and the annual games

24—Friday, April 22, 1966

Child-like and primitive in appear-
ance, they consist of sparsely out-
lined shapes floating against bold
splotches of color. Striving for in-
finite shapes and ideas, he claims,
"A work of art is by no means a
problem which can be put forward
and which can be solved. It is a
play of hands and intellect that
slides through the mesh of sym-
metry." Indeed, his work leaves
much to the imagination and may
appear vague and meaningless to
those unaware of his goal.
Bergner also concerns himself
with the fanciful, but is able to
elicit more specific responses of
poignancy and tenderness. All un-
titled, his pictures can be best
understood after a preliminary
reading of an accompanying poem
of 10 proverbs which the pictures
illustrate. Word and line combine
here to make each of his litho-
graphs a beautiful story in itself.
A startling contrast to the works
of Bergner and Litvinovsky are
those of Jakob Steinhardt. His sub-
ject matter, taken from the Bible,
is appropriately rendered in bold,
black shapes against a white back-
ground and exude warmth, sensi-
tivity and sobriety. Some of his
subjects are "Noah Blesses the
Beasts," "The Meeting of Esau and
Jacob" and "Moses on the Moun-
The exhibit is worth seeing, for
it is certain that each of these men
will have a significant place in the
history and evolution of art.

Better Housing for Israel

TEL AVIV (ZINS)—The ancient
biblical prophecy: "And they shall
build houses and inhabit them" is
attaining fulfillment in the state of
Israel. In the past year alone, 100,-
000 Israelis changed their living
quarters and moved into better
The largest percentage moved
into their own homes and only a
small number into rented apart-
ments for which "key money" is
required. The new housing con-
tains all the most modern appli-
ances and furnishings.
