Portrait – A Century of Israeli Art
The image of the body in Israeli art has gone through several incarnations over the decades, from the idyllic and ideological representation – the Jewish body, the Zionist body, the biblical body, the national body, the hero's body – to the private, sexual body, the body of the anti-hero, the biographical body, the “other” body.
