Jacob Steinhardt

July 8, 2010

Zerkow, Germany, 1887 – Nahariya, Israel, 1968

Disabused with Germany when he fled from WWII to Israel in 1934, Jacob Steinhardt chose to work on biblical themes and to search for an Israeli, Jewish style. He studied art at the Berlin Arts and Crafts School and the Bezalel Academy of Art and Design. Steinhardt was always very connected to his Jewish heritage and concentrated on Biblical and Jewish themes. He was a master of many mediums including oil, woodcuts and watercolor. Steinhardt was an influential teacher, first at an art school that he founded in Jerusalem and
later, once he closed it down, as a professor and director at the Bezalel Academy of Art and Design.
