The Jerusalem Post - - ARTS&ENTERTAINM­ENT - (Cour­tesy)

A work by Is­raeli artist Roni Ta­harlev is part of an ex­hi­bi­tion at Paris’s Lou­vre Mu­seum mark­ing the 50th an­niver­sary of man’s first steps on the moon. The ex­hibit, ti­tled ‘The Moon. Real and Imag­i­nary Jour­neys,’ opened at the Grand Palais in Paris on April 3. It fea­tures works of art from dif­fer­ent pe­ri­ods in West­ern art, in­clud­ing works by Gi­ambat­tista Tiepolo, Jean-An­toine Houdon, Anne-Louis Girodet-Trio­son, Henry Fuseli, Cas­par David Friedrich and Gus­tav Doré. Ta­harlev’s paint­ing is a vari­a­tion on the theme of the An­nun­ci­a­tion, ti­tled ‘Not This Light, the Other Light’ (2018). At present she is work­ing on two other An­nun­ci­a­tion paint­ings from the same se­ries, which will be shown in her solo ex­hi­bi­tion at the Her­zliya Mu­seum of Con­tem­po­rary Art in May.
