Anna Ticho

August 30, 2010

Brno, Czechoslovakia, 1894 – Jerusalem, Israel, 1980
“I came to Jerusalem when the city was still pristine, with its vast expanses and breathtaking beauty. I was overwhelmed by the grandeur of the landscape, the bare hills, the ancient olive trees and grooved slopes -the feeling of loneliness, of eternity.” – Anna Ticho

Renowned for her romantic depictions of the Judean Hills, Anna Ticho is one of the most beloved Israeli artists. Ticho studied drawing in an art school in Vienna from 1906 through 1909 and moved to Israel in 1912. She was one of the founders of the Bezalel Academy of Art and Design. Ticho bequeathed her fantastic downtown home, her art and her husband´s Judaica collection to the Israel Museum when she died and it is a popular tourist site today. Her charcoal and pencil drawings are refined and meticulous; they capture every crag in the Judean Hills, emphasizing their beauty and sublime.
