This is the first exhibition to highlight landscape art from The Magnes collection. Spanning the twentieth century and following the paths of Jewish migration, the exhibition offers of a new look at the artists’ relationship with the sites and spaces they inhabited. From Western European Impressionism to Eastern European Realism, from Romanticism of the Americas to Modernism of Israel/Palestine, images of the land were created at the intersection of pictorial traditions and ideological values. Included in the exhibition are nearly thirty works by such artists as Max Liebermann, Jacob Nussbaum, Robert Falk, Moshe Mokady, and Mauricy Minkowsky.
