Theodore Herzl by Menashe Kadishman is observing his living dream, a Jewish National Home in Israel. As he stated in his book “Old New Land”: “If you will it, it is no dream”. Sketches of buildings and living towns are coming from the water and Magen Davids symbolize ideological power of happening. The painting transmits personal magnetism of Herzl and his passion, that helped a young editor of Vienna’s Neue Freie Presse to fundamentally transform Jewish history.
Reflexive and at the same time full of bright expectations and tones the artwork stands out of our Kadishman’s collection. The artist is famous for hundreds of portraits of sheep each one different from another. Also, as a sculpturer he beautifully conveyed the motion and the harmony of natural forms.
Please find the selection of artworks by Menashe Kadishman. The blog about a shepherd might be interesting. At the 1978 Venice Biennale the artist presented an actual colored flock of sheep and himself leaded it.
Take a look at another depiction of Herzl envisioning the bright future. The man is looking through wonderful Zoe Sever‘s light rays at the sea from the city, that includes different famous landmarks. For instance, one can distinguish the Old City of Jerusalem, The Shrine of the Book and even the Montefiore Windmill. At the same time from skyscrapers of Tel-Aviv the Baha’i Terraces of Haifa reach down.
