Poets' Portraits: Lines For My Image - Drawings and Sculpture by Zvi Lachman, Tel-Aviv

April 22, 2007 - August 26, 2007
Selz Foundation Gallery

Lachman's portraits combine visual impressions from observation, photographs, and memory, and juxtapose the portraits with the poems. The artist seeks to capture the relationship between the inner life of each writer and poet; his or her view of the world; and the impression that their work has left on the artist. His subjects include Haim Nachman Bialik, Elsa Lasker-Schueler; Lea Goldberg; Uri Zvi Grinberg; Avot Yeshurun; Yona Wallach; Shai Agnon; and others.
