The Lipchitz Collection in The Israel Museum, Jerusalem
Edited by Tanya Sirakovich
Addressing the two sides of Jacques Lipchitz’s identity as both a sculptor and a collector, this publication is dedicated to his art and to the thousands of objects he accumulated.Lipchitz’s collection of some 3,000 artifacts from Africa and Oceania, the Americas and Asia, medieval Europe and the ancient world has been gifted to the Israel Museum by his family. The publication highlights nearly one hundred of the objects in it, testimony to the cultures, forms, motifs, techniques, and ways of expression that enriched his own creativity.Introductory essays by international experts on Lipchitz focus on the Israel Museum’s holding of his sculptures, paintings, prints, and drawings - the highlights of the collection are presented in a photographic album accompanied by curatorial texts.
