August 6, 2010

Lodz, Poland, 1890 – Jerusalem, Israel 1970

Ze´ev Raban was one of the most important influences on the Bezalel Academy of Art and Design. He studied art at several institutions in Europe, the School of Applied Art in Munich, the Beaux-Arts Academy in Paris, and the Royal Academy of Art in Brussels before moving to Israel in 1912 where he became a professor and the principle designer for the applied arts school. Raban was prolific and varied artist working in everything from painting, sculpture and illustration to jewelry, package and poster design. His decorative, representation and idyllic style focuses on a utopian biblical model filled with prophets, shepherds and traditional design.
