Opening February 9, 2016
Since May of 2015, the staff of the Skirball Museum has been hard at work unpacking, condition reporting, cataloguing, and photographing nearly 1500 works of art from the B’nai B’rith Klutznick Collection, now a part of the Skirball’s holdings. Ten treasures from the collection remain on view, giving visitors a sneak peek at the breadth of this remarkable collection as the Museum prepares for a permanent display. This group of treasures includes antique and modern Judaica as well as 20th century paintings.

Reuven Rubin: Visages d'Israel
This exhibition features 12 lithographs by Romanian-born Reuven Rubin (1893-1974), who emigrated to Palestine and was among a pioneering group of artists who offered a modern and light-filled interpretation of the landscape and people of Israel. Rubin has been described as Israel's national artist, and this whimsical series published in 1960 recalls work by Picasso, Chagall, and Miro.
