Synopsis: This book provides a guide to the extensive and varied collections of the Israel Museum in Jerusalem. Housing a world-acclaimed collection of biblical archaeology - of which the highlight is the famous Dead Sea Scrolls, exhibited in the Shrine of the Book - the Museum is also home to fine works of art from all over the world. These include Old Master paintings, Impressionist, Israeli and contemporary art, holdings in photography, design and ethnic arts, and an impressive sculpture garden displaying, among others, works by Rodin, Henry Moore, David Smith and James Turrell. The world's most comprehensive collections of Judaica and Jewish Ethnography bring to life 2000 years of the communities of the Diaspora through the display of religious and ritual artifacts, clothing, jewellery and objects of everyday life. The vast archaeological collection records the cultures of the Holy Land and neighboring countries - their art, religion, funerary rites, trade and industry - from prehistoric times until the advent of the Muslim era.
Divided into four chapters covering Archaeology, Art, Judaica and Ethnography, and the innovative Ruth Youth Wing, with its interactive approach aimed at encouraging younger visitors, the book provides a fascinating tour of this unique and beautiful Museum.
From Library Journal:
The 30-year-old Israel Museum has never been the subject of a book before, and, while no single book can completely convey the whole of a large and complex museum, this one comes close. The curators of the various departments of the museum do a fine job of conveying the museum's general world art collection and youth wing, but it is as a repository of biblical history and Judaica that both the Israel Museum and this book shine. Both the history of the museum and particular elements of the collection are highlighted. Jewish history is examined from the Dead Sea Scrolls (housed in the evocative Shrine of the Book) to Palestinian costumes to a complete reproduction of an 18th-century French salon. This large lovely book is well recommended for collections of Judaica, the Middle East, and biblical history.?Mary Morgan Smith, Northland P.L., Pittsburgh, Pa.
