Puriya is a small, poor village
on a little patch of land in the heart
of the Bet Shean Valley in Israel.
The Puriya-Alumot Road runs
through the center of it and is the
only paved road in the entire vil-
lage. Dirt roads lead from one
house to another and to the center
of the village where a poor, primi-
tive and meagerly stocked general
Puriya contrasts sharply with
the thriving kibutzim around it.
On a cool Friday night in Febru-
ary, the people of Puriya looked
up to see two dark objects trailing
flame behind them streaking across
the sky from Jordan toward their
village. There was terror as the
Katyusha rockets pounded to the
One of those rockets struck

Works of 3 Masters in Paperbacks
Dover Publications, producers of
works of the great masters in art.
science, literature, humor. etc..
have just issued new paperbacks
that will add immensely to the li-
braries of art lovers.
Three new paperback additions
to Dover's "The Great Masters -if
Drawing" series have now been
published for the first time in
America. They are "Drawings by
Michelangelo," selected by Maria
Vittoria Bzugnoli: • "Drawings by
Tintoretto, - selected by Giuseppe
Delogu: "Drawings by Canaletto."
selected by Vittorio Moschini.
Along with the first two volumes
of this series. "Drawings by Leo-
nardo da Vinci" and "Drawings by
Botticelli." they comprise a beau-
tifully-produced, yet inexpensive
set of master drawings.
Michelangelo's dra wings are
peopled with powerful, heroic
figures who seem animated by
their search for spiritual values .
Though many drawings have
been lost, the remaining ones are
of very fine quality. Done in pen
and black and red crayon. they re-
veal the great freedom and fertil-
ity of the artist's imagination, and
exhibit what Miss Brugnoli calls

As an apprentice, as an inde-
pendent artist, and as a mature
master, Tintoretto was always
drawing. The Venetian painter's
characteristic vigor and dynamism
fill the 32 prophetically modern
drawings in Dover's collection.
Schooled in the Manneristic Floren-
tine tradtion, Tintoretto's drawings
nevertheless pulse with an almost
feverish sense of power and activ-
ity. Most of the drawings are of
male nudes, and they reveal his

Unlike the drawings of Michel-
angelo and Tintoretto, the magnifi-
cent architectural drawings of Ca-
naletto change significantly in style
and content over the 40-year span
of his life. Most of the 72 drawings
in this collection were done in pen.
Many are spontaneous and sketchy,
and were done on the spot: others
are carefully detailed, with mar-
velous precision and perspective.
