Tel Aviv Museum of Art presents the renovated Simon and Marie Jaglom Collection, which includes stunning masterpieces by renowned artists, among them Claude Monet, Camille Pissarro, Amedeo Modigliani, Henri Matisse, Moise Kisling, Marc Chagall and others.
The new display, in the pavilion named after the Jagloms since its opening in 1971, features mostly Impressionist and Post-Impressionist art. These two movements developed in France in the late 19th and early 20th centuries, and are regarded as the heralds of Modernism. This period, which influenced the history of art heavily, was characterized by unprecedented openness and tolerance.
The Jaglom Collection includes stunning masterpieces by renowned artists—among them Claude Monet, Camille Pissarro, Amedeo Modigliani, Henri Matisse, Henri-Edmond Cross, Chaim Soutine and Moise Kisling—alongside works by artists like Max Liebermann, Lesser Uri and Lovis Corinth who represent turn-of-the-century German Impressionism, which blended elements of French Impressionism with features of the more academic German school, characterized by dark color, distinct formalism and uniform color palettes. Also featured are Marc Chagall, whose work combined motifs from Jewish and Russian folklore alongside historical and autobiographical elements; Moshe Kogan, who was murdered in Auschwitz; and works that have not been on display for a long time, among them Portrait of a Woman by Eugen Spiro and A Girl against a Red Background by Moise Kisling.
The renovated display offers the public a fantastic opportunity to enjoy world-renowned masterpieces in their new, colorful setting. A new booklet is available free of charge at the entrance to the pavilion, with annotations about a selection of these important works of art.
The renovation of the pavilion was made through the generosity and cooperation of the Simon and Marie Jaglom Foundation.
