Portrait – A Century of Israeli Art
The episode discusses the definition of success in the world of art. On what does success depend - on aesthetics, or cash? On the verdict of the critics, or popularity among the general public? In today's world, larger and more commercial than ever, everyone has a different answer and the question of success becomes more and more complex.
